The Lord had said to Abram, …”I will bless those who bless you…” Genesis 12:1, 3
God of Abram, Isaac, and Jacob. Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. You are the Eternal I AM. The One who is age to age the same. There is no shadow of turning with You. You are fully present in every generation—past, present, and future. You are the All-Mighty. Your power has not been deleted or depleted over the millennia of human history. We know that You so loved the world that You gave us Heaven’s treasure when You sent Your only Son two thousand years ago to be born as a baby, wrapped in swaddling clothes and laid in a manger. When we join the shepherds and gaze into that manger bed, we find ourselves looking into the face of God. Thank you for the wonder of Christmas!

And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky…and let them serve as signs to mark seasons (feasts)…” And there was evening and morning—the fourth day. Genesis 1:14,19
We are seeing some extraordinary signs in the sky. Last year we saw two lunar eclipses and this year we will see two more. In both years, each of the lunar eclipses is on the same Jewish feast days, Passover and Tabernacles. Plus we have seen one solar eclipse in the middle of the lunar eclipses that just occurred on March 20, which this year was the Jewish New Year.
Jewish tradition views a solar eclipse as an omen or harbinger of distress or crisis for Gentile nations. In light of the solar eclipse on March 20, Orthodox Jews issued a worldwide call to pray for the nations.
