Read Matthew 1 (REVISED STANDARD VERSION)   “Yes, I know it has been a long day for you. Much has happened since we last talked. Step back into the love that is with Me. Fix your eyes on the love that is with Me.  Fix your eyes on a vision of the Father. Oh, My eyes are tender to your wounds, worries and fears.  I’m here to speak with you; and to bring you comfort.  Walk through the gates of Christmas Mountain. Do not be afraid to bring to Me all your fears and concerns, and worries.”

Read Luke 2:1-26 (New Living Translation) “Come with Me to the stereo; Let Me put on some classic Christmas instrumental music on in the background, as we continue to enjoy company together.  My home is your home.  I desire for you to be at home in the Father’s heart.”

Read Matthew: 1-23   “Come with Me; let’s go to the fireplace.  Let Me put some more wood in the stove, and keep the fire burning.  I will keep you warm tonight. You can rest with Me.  Let Me grab the log and place it on the fire. You hear the crackling sound of fire.  You will be kept safe, warm.”

Read Matthew 1:17 – 23 NEW LIVING “Come to Me in the Father’s house at Christmas Mountain.  Come into the living room.  Sit comfortably in the chair and let Me bring you some dessert. It is a chocolate and white giant swiss Yule log.  Here, have a piece. Make yourself comfortable. The story of Christmas is ongoing and living. It is a spiral, like a Yule log.”

Matthew 1:1-17 The Message “Look at Matthew 1. This is part of the Nativity Story often missed.  The reason, you see, for the genealogy is a summary of history. In each name are stories. This genealogy is a shortcut; a prelude. With television shows, you say ‘previously, on’. This is a similar shortcut. It is like when you read the opening crawl before the big Star Wars movies. It is a summary of what has gone on before.”

Read: Matthew 1:18-25 (the Message) “Come, sit with Me, rest with Me in the living room.  I am more interested in heart to heart than head to head.” “See Me pouring you a nice, warm cup of hot chocolate, made with real milk; real chocolate and of course, with marshmallows on top because I am comfort.” “Here, take this and re-read Matthew 1:18-25, act it out, speak it out, for it’s a real story.”
