Is it Christmas in your heart? Has Jesus been born in your heart already? Do you believe in the Son of God? If so, you are born again and it is Christmas in your heart. Do you believe this? Because Jesus was telling Nicodemus, a principal of the Jews, that he had to be born again of the Spirit, and continued assuring that he who believes in the Son of God is not condemned –but has everlasting life (John 3:16) –; but he who does not believe in Him is already condemned; John 3:18. Nicodemus was an erudite in the Biblical faith but needed to fulfil his faith with the Messiah in his heart, as Jesus Christ was teaching him, so that he would have everlasting life and would not be condemned. It is the greatest present of Christmas, Jesus himself living in our heart through faith: “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government shall be upon his shoulder; and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6.” A prophecy received by another principal of the Jews, in 700 B.C.

Christmas started to be celebrated already in the third century dating it the 25th of December according to Roman birth registries that some fathers of the Church studied, as we read in the books of Christian History. Even though to date we cannot determine the exact date and it raises big controversies between students, really what matters to us Christians –and what should matter to everyone who wants to be saved from condemnation and hell– is that we love Jesus and celebrate His birth. And my question this Christmas is: has Jesus been born in your heart already? Has salvation been born already, the love of God and to God, to His Word –Do you know it? – to our neighbour, to good deeds not searching a reward, to forgiveness, to compassion and mercy? If Jesus is born in your heart you can say you know Jesus, you are born again. Will you answer, yes, to the question: Is it Christmas in your heart?

Christmas was born in the heart of some Gentiles, the magi, wise men from the East, known as “the three kings”, according to the Gospel of Matthew to the Jews, chapters 1 and 2, who followed a star in the heavens that according to their knowledge announced the birth of the Messiah, and it was also born in the heart of some Jews, shepherds who kept their flock in the watch of the night, according to the Gospel of Luke, chapter 2, who came to worship Child Jesus because it was announced to them by the angels, heavenly hosts that appeared to them in the heavens. The star and the angles; both signs of heaven convinced Jews and Gentiles to warship that Child God, the King of kings and Lord of lords or all times and for eternity that, that prophet announced seven centuries earlier.

But Christmas was born before in the heart of the Virgin Mary, the mother of child Jesus, afterwards in John the Baptist when he jumped in the womb of his mother Elizabeth, relative of Mary, then in her husband, priest Zechariah, then in Joseph, Mary’s husband, and this way we can continue reading in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke; and then in the heart of all believers. But we must not forget that Christmas was already prophesized by the prophets and that therefore Christmas was also born in their hearts, the faith in the Messiah was born.

But that Isaiah, prophet of God, as well as receiving the revelation of the Child God that we read in the beginning, would also receive the following revelation:

“He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed... Isaiah 53:1-12.

Both revelations where fulfilled about 700 and 733 years after, exactly as written. But not only this, because king David wrote another prophecy through revelation about that Child that was going to be born unto us, regarding His work on the Cross, in Psalm 22 of the Bible.:

“My God, my God, why have You forsaken me?... ...He trusted the Lord; let Him rescue Him... ...I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint; my heart is like wax, it has melted within me... ...they pierced my hands and my feet. I can count all my bones; they look and stare at me. They divide my garments among them.”

Finally, and returning to Nativity, we celebrate Christmas in advance in the four Sundays of Advent, remembering the story of the most relevant birth in history. Advent is directly linked to Revelation as they mean the same in two phases: the revelation of Christ to the world, first to save us, and in the second to take us to His kingdom forever. When we celebrate Advent we are celebrating the first coming of Christ, and in Revelation 1:7, the second.

If it is Christmas in your heart already, can you announce Christmas to others in whom the Son of God has not been born yet, and the meaning of His birth, expiatory death, resurrection and future advent? If it’s so and you do it every day, it already is Christmas in your heart.



  • For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Prophecy of Isaiah 9:6.

  • I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6. Words of Yahshua - Jesus Christ.
  • You want to know God, but you know the way is not through organized religion, nor by sects, nor by society. The world has failed. ...I pray for them;  I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours... John 17:9. Prayer of Yahshua - Jesus Christ.

  • If you really seek God, begin today the new life though the true hand of God. The Gospel is the message for all nations, no matter their race, their origins or culture. God is the saviour of those from humanity who open their hearts to Him.

  • ...Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.  1Corinthians 15:58.
