The Best News Ever
Luke 2:1-20, And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. 2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) 3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. 4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) 5 To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. 6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. 7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. 8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. 10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. 12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

14 Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, good will toward men.

15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. 16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. 17 And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. 18 And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. 19 But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart. 20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

What happened 12/25/11 on SA's News Site is the Scripture was read. Commendable, it was the Lord's, a good way to spend it, in the word. However it was also Christ-Mass.

But what happened 1/1/12 on SA's 'News Site.' News was reported. Why was Scripture not read as it was on Christ-Mass? Both dates were the Christian Sabbath or Lord's Day but only 12/25/11 did SA and friends give the News a rest. I am trying to explain, that I could see from Scripture this disagrees with the 4th commandment see also Isa. 58:13-14. I was wrong to be reading News on the Lord's Day. I did this the other 6 days. Which of the 10 Commandments are ok to violate any day? NONE I'm aware of. But the 4th pertains to the first day of the week. I wanted fellowship on the Lord's Day. This has not resulted in it on that day or any other, for that matter. 1John 1:6,7 To violate this command by choosing fellowship (?) with those who say they love the Lord Jesus Christ but neither keep his commands nor love the brethren, only demonstrates a lack of love to God. I repented and this Lord's Day and every day this week my communion with Christ by His word and Spirit was restored. He used SA for my good as Romans 8:28-29 promised. 1John 5:21 Nothing beside Him, i.e. computer addiction

I expect it is very good, Jim. But I'm not prepared to mess up my memorisation from the KJV. Gil should have thought of that.

Gil Rugh said or, wrote:
Nowhere in the Old Testament is there any word that the Gentile nations ought to observe the sabbath , or keep the law. It was for the nation Israel. People come presenting supposed truth that will help us be more godly and will stem the tide of decadence around us. These are subtle forms to corrupt the sufficiency of Christ and His work accomplished in our lives.

Isn't this the razor's edge?
(1.) Stick-gatherer (disobedient) executed (Numbers 15:32-36).

We don't know the stick-gatherer's heart but he's immediately executed for his disobedience (i.e., lack of faith, hope and love?).
In this NT passage we learn the Church leaders neglected justice, mercy and faith.
Although I understand (2.) because Jesus could see the Church leaders' hearts, why was the execution (1.) necessary? How is this teaching even helpful for today's Christian faithful?
Is the modern Christian not to worry one iota about working on the Lord's Day? Or should he pay close attention to the stick-gatherer's fate?
You have failed to demonstrate that what has happened on SA is "work"!

What about the priests that ministered in the Temple, or the minister who preaches on the Lord's Day... they were/are working!

I wish I could answer you nyp but I am unable. It must have something to do with the interpretation of the law.

You Pharisee! How is posting scripture on the Lord's day and especially verses that announce the coming of the Savior a "work"?!
If Scripture was posted, 1/1/12 like 12/25/11 instead of News it wouldn't have got my attention. My conscience in this matter is best known to me. And to my own Master I stand or fall. This is not legalism. 1 John 2:4 "He that saith I know him and keepth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him." All saved sinners know God expects a God-rightousness that ONLY Jesus Christ can give, even our justification. Our sanctification or the good works prepared in advance for me to walk in is the fruit of the mortifying work of the Spirit and the measure of Christ's obedience that is my portion, his work in me. This is a matter between me and my Master. For sometime now I have struggled with my motives of partication especially on the Lord's Day and the Lord used SA's holding one day above God's appointed day to get my attention.

NYP, I believe that just as in the case of Aaron's 2 sons, Nadab and Abihu, God's glory was at issue and that is more important to God then even the salvation of sinners, and we know how impotant that is, by the unfathomable price paid for the elect.

When a man was discovered gathering kindling on the Lord's Day, God advised him to be put to death. Then Moses made it so.

Apparently God hates disobedience.

Because the Internet requires a 24/7 army of workers to operate, even on the Lord's Day, aren't we taking liberty way beyond keeping His day holy?

After all, the man only wanted to warm his family.

Well, I have my answer from SA by observation. They, like the Mega Churches closed the News on 'Christ Mass' but not for the Christian Sabbath. It was necessary for me to see this so I understood why I could no longer justfy my participation on the Lord's day, for that reason alone, though there are others. John 7:17 "If any man will do his will, he shall know of the
doctrine whether it be of God or whether I speak of myself." Jesus Christ is the Mediator of the New Covenant which includes ALL 10 Commandments that he lived to keep and died to propitiate God's just wrath for their violation. News is not a work of necessity or mercy on the Sabbath. Debate is a work of the flesh, on any day. Of Scriptural argument I fall short. If I am guilty of one violation I am guilty of all. "For whosoever shall keep the whole Law and yet offend at one point is guilty of all." James 2:10 "Confess your faults one to another and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man
availeth much." James 5:16

Staff & Readers Of Sermonaudio: Today, "Christmas Day" 2010: At 3pm--As I Went Home From Downtown (The Chicago Loop)--I Took The "Red-Line" CTA Train.

As I Entered The Train, I Went To The Last Car; And From There Entered Each Separate Car (Going Car-To-Car) Proclaiming This "Christmas" Message:

"And There Were In The Same Country Shepherds Abiding In The Field, Keeping Watch Over Their Flock By Night.

And, Lo, The Angel Of THE LORD Came Upon Them, And The Glory Of THE LORD Shone Round About Them: And They Were Sore Afraid.

And The Angel Said Unto Them, Fear Not: For Behold, I Bring You Glad Tidings Of GREAT JOY, Which Shall Be TO ALL PEOPLE.

For Unto You Is Born This Day In The City Of David A SAVIOUR, Which Is CHRIST THE LORD...

And Suddenly There Was With The Angel A MULTITUDE OF THE HEAVENLY HOST, Praising GOD, And Saying:

GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHEST, AND ON EARTH PEACE, GOOD WILL TOWARD MEN." LUKE 2:8-11,14

"Therefore THE LORD HIMSELF Shall Give You A SIGN; Behold, A VIRGIN Shall Concieve [Be With Child], And Bear [Shall Bring Forth] A SON; And [They] Shall Call His Name IMMANUEL [EMMANUEL], Which Being Interpreted Is, GOD WITH US." ISAIAH 7:14 & MATTHEW 1:23

Part of the best news ever, you might have started with Luke 1:30, just to point out many of these questions Did You Know Mary? were rhetorical, though no one knew all of the answers until Christ's completed mission on earth. This is one of the better Christmas songs because unlike most it's lyrics point out more than just Christ's birth, as did your Scripture quotations. So thank you.
