Luke 1:1-7 In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that the entire inhabited earth should be taxed. 2 This taxation was first made when Quirinius was governor of Syria. 3 And everyone went to his own city to be taxed.
4 So Joseph also departed from the city of Nazareth in Galilee to the City of David which is called Bethlehem, in Judea, because he was of the house and lineage of David, 5 to be taxed with Mary, his betrothed wife, who was with child. 6 So while they were there, the day came for her to give birth. 7 And she gave birth to her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in strips of cloth, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.
The Prophet Isaiah prophesy the birth of Jesus and the Prophet Micah prophecy the birth place as Bethlehem.
Caesar Augustus did not know it, but what they did in requiring everyone to pay taxes in their hometown was not a decision made on their own, for it was God who placed this thought in their minds to place this order upon the people.
God timing and God's ways are not like ours for they are higher than man's.
Has God made you a promise? WAIT ON HIM! If He said it, you can trust Him!
For unto us is born the Savior Of The World, Jesus Christ!
Thank You Lord for sending forth Your Son Jesus to die for our sins.
Silent Night! O what a Holy Night it was!
