Christmas is the celebration of the coming of the Savior of the world! It has been celebrated for centuries, since the time of the Roman Emperor Constantine. The birth of The Promised One was prophesied by many seers, hundreds of years before His coming! Isaiah 9:6 is one of the more familiar passages of scripture concerning the birth of Messiah: For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. December 25, A.D. 336,.
