To everyone involved in our discussion group, I would like to wish you a very merry Christmas. I pray that your holidays give you safe travels to those on the road or airways, and that your time with family is better than ever before!
In our Christmas Eve service at our new church, a scripture reading blessed us with a very powerful scripture. There are so many statements in the New Testament that have clear and concise descriptions of our risen Savior, but this one left us awestruck when we compared this Jesus of the Bible with the other versions we have heard throughout the years.
"He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross." - Colossians 1:15-20
I look forward to the new year, and am very excited to begin our focus on the Gospels. If you have also been taking a break during our absence, we invite you back to join us in discussing the scriptures with us as we compare the Gospel of Jesus Christ with William Branham's gospel.
Let the Truth of God's Word stand!
Merry Christmas to all!
John and Jennifer Collins
