Twas the Night Before Christmas – Jesus Birth…

With Christmas only a few days away, I wanted to share a poem about the first Christmas.  This was written by Rock Griffis… “Twas the Night Before Christmas – Jesus Birth” I hope you enjoy.

Twas the Night Before Christmas – Jesus Birth… By Rock Griffis

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the land

people were traveling to their homeland. 

The Inns were full of travelers you know

And a young couple was searching for someplace to go.

She was heavy with child and found permission to rest

in a small stable, not considered the best.

It had a manger and hay, not much more,

Just a few animals and a dirt floor.

In the same country abiding in the field

Shepherds were tending their sheep as they will.

The stars up above were shining up high,

One in particular was lighting the sky.

All of a sudden there appeared in the sky

An angel of God with a message from high.

The angel announced don’t be afraid

I bring you good tidings for all people today.

A Savior is born to you this day

Which is Christ the Lord, he had to say.

In the city of David wrapped in old clothes

lying in the manger is the sign you should know.

And all of a sudden there was singing in the air

a multitude of angels singing with care.

Glory to God in the highest and on earth

peace, and good will toward men.

And when they were gone, the shepherds agreed

That they would travel to Bethlehem immediately.

Then they arrived they found the sign.

Mary, Joseph and the babe.

He was lying in the manger, Just as the angel proclaimed.

They told the parents that they were told

of this Holy child that she now holds.

Mary was thinking of the things that they said

then they returned and bowed their heads.

They praised and prayed and glorified him

and for all the things the angel had said.

Eight days later when it was time

The small child JESUS was named.

Remember the star that lighted the sky

that special night, the angels came by.

From even that time, from really afar,

there had been three kings following that star.

It had taken much time to follow the star but they

rejoiced with great joy when they saw what they saw.

Mother named Mary with a child that they saw

they fell to the floor and worshipped with awe.

They brought him gifts of Myrrh, frankincense and gold

very pricey items I am told.

Over two thousand years have passed since then

When Jesus was a child born not of sin.

He came and he lived and died for us

God almighty really loves us.

He will be back very soon indeed

To gather his bride for a wedding feast.

Christmas will continue forever indeed

So give your gifts in His memory.

 Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night may your life be filled with His joy and His light.

Twas the Night Before Christmas – Jesus Birth… By Rock Griffis

 This Christmas season let’s celebrate the miraculous birth of our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ. God has given us the greatest gift of all. John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” Gods Son came to earth and became human. To live here with us and finally to die for our sins. Jesus paid the price with his life, to give us the free gift of salvation. We do not have to paid for our sins, we need only to accept His free gift.

Here’s my question to you… Have you accepted the Free gift from God? How is your relationship with God? Maybe you don’t have a relationship or have fallen away from God? Please don’t wait until it’s too late. There’s no better time than right this minute, to get or renew a relationship with God.

Again Please… if you don’t know Christ or have fallen away, please pray… Tell God you believe His Son Jesus paid for your sins and rose again. Tell God you are sorry and want to start Living for Him. He will forgive your sins and mistakes and give you Everlasting Life with Him… and place His Spirit deep within your heart. In 1 John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

I pray that God will truly Help and Bless you. If you would like for me to pray with you, please email me at

Merry Christmas.  May God Bless and Keep!
