Read Matthew 2 (NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION)   “Come, and walk towards the gates of Christmas Mountain, and see the gates open. It is important to Me that your heart is at peace as you come here.  I see the heavy burdens that you have carried in your heart, and the questions and struggles of life’s events.  As you walk up to the house, I want you to see that I have the keys to the house. I want to give you a key to the house, so that you can come here anytime you want.”

Read LUKE 2:8-20   “My child, here we are at Christmas Mountain. Now, put on your coat, it is time to put on your winter shoes and coat and walk with Me up the mountain to Christmas Village.  I want you to picture it like a small Charles Dickens Christmas Carol – like village, with shops and a small church and a town square.”

Read MATTHEW 2:1-12 (NEW LIVING)   “Yes, yes, you need rest.  I know that you are looking for guidance, wisdom about your life.  Please, come into the house, and rest on the couch.  Let Me start the fire, with wooden logs burning.  Hear the crackle of the fire burning the logs.” “Sit right there, I am going into the kitchen to get you a drink of hot chocolate.  Sit down, there is no need to rush.  I know how fast time has gone by for you; and how stressed you have felt about life’s events.”

Read Matthew 1:18- 25 (New Living) “Take time with Me.  The reason for different translations is to read different ways of interpreting the same story.  Sit down with Me in the living room at Christmas Mountain.” “The story of Mary and Joseph is a love story.  Joseph did not know how to react to what Mary had been told by the Angel Gabriel.  One heard directly God’s voice, the other did not.  It was not until Joseph had his own encounter that he was able to be at peace.”

Read MATTHEW 1:18-25 (NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION) “Come to Christmas Mountain, again and again. Yes, be encouraged that Christmas Mountain is also ‘Father Christmas Mountain’.  I am Father Christmas, My Child.  I want you to enter into a place of healing and belonging where you are always welcome and always accepted.  It is time for fear to become something that belongs in the past; not your present. Love will overcome the fear that you have felt in your life.”
