A few days ago, a pastor that has a congregation in Jerusalem was driving down the winding main street here in Bethlehem and payed attention to the surrounding decorations of lights stranded across roads, Santa and snowmen statues but nothing pointing towards Christ’s birth as the birthplace of Christianity.
This pastor has seen throughout the yeas the decline of Christ centred ornaments throughout Bethlehem, but this year not even a statued nativity scene could be found other then in souvenir shops.
It is a reality that throughout the world it is heading that way, loosing the focus off of Christ, not just in Christmas but all throughout the year.
He wasn’t going to let another year pass by without making an extreme stand promoting the straight forward gospel of Christ.
He is in the process of printing and putting up a large banner up on the largest billboard in bethlehem that reads the following in both arabic and English.
“JESUS BORN TO DIE AND ROSE AGAIN. INVITE HIM INTO YOUR HEART SO YOU MIGHT LIVE.”
We released this video just a few minutes ago telling of his billboard story.
Keep him in your prayers as things unfold!!
