December 2            


   Holidays are milestones of history, of the cultural values, they are signs of God among men. They remind us of the past, they make us responsible for the present and prepare us for the future. They remind us of the values we have, the prospects for which we live. The people who forget their history neglect their future, therefore the present is decisive. We belong to the Romanian people as a nation, being diligent, creative and cheerful people. At the same time, we belong to the people of God as a manifestation of our faith, being faithful, holy, and consecrated to the Kingdom of Heaven. We are bound to earth with our body and one day the two sides will reunite, but we are bound to God in the spirit and one day the two sides will be together for eternity. As a Romanian people we remember the day of December 1, 1918, the Great Union of Alba Iulia. We remember social troubles, international interests, years of slavery, war and blood, the unification of a nation that stood in the way of the great powers, we remember the great leaders, the sacrifice of a people who loved their nation and their traditions.
   As a people of God we remember Christ, the Savior who came to us, we remember the cross, the place of the Great Trial, the place where He died so we could live. Golgotha is the place of punishment, where Christ has replaced us in death. He stood in our place in the face of the divine wrath that punished our sin. Suffering the punishment for all mankind`s sins was cast upon Him, and we were all saved.
   Today we remember Alba Iulia and the Great Union and we honor our heroes. But more than this temporal national holiday, we remember Golgotha, the Great Hero, the eternal Jesus Christ, the sufferings He endured when He took upon Himself our sins.
Today we remember Him, we honor Him among us, we worship Him, we dedicate ourselves to Him. We want to be patriotic, we want to be good Romanians, we want to respect the nation in the midst of which God has placed us. Moreover, we want to be faithful and loyal to God. We want to be good Christians who obey His commandments.
   We are responsible for our country, for our Romanianism, for our people. Moreover, we are responsible for our soul, our eternal life, for the salvation of our families and of the whole world. We are the ambassadors of God in this generation. Our purpose is to represent Him and His Kingdom. One hundred years of Romania, 2000 years of Christianity. When our Romanianism will cease here on earth, our eternity will begin as saints of God, in a heavenly place.

The Bible tells us that when the time came, Messiah, the Son of God, was incarnate through the Virgin Mary in a stable in Bethlehem. There is a time for birth and a time for death, there is a time for childhood and youth, and there is a time for old age – no one can change anyone’s timetable. The event of Messiah’s coming to our world is filled with history and miracles in equal measure.
a. Jesus Christ is the most influential person in history.
b. The Bible is the most influential Book in history
c. Christianity is the largest, most important, most well-known and most influential religion in history.
a. In a miraculous manner, the Hebrew people through which Messiah was to come, was protected by God, despite its the potential extermination throughout its 2000 year history.
b. In a miraculous manner, God announced the coming of Messiah 4000 years before Christ, during the time of Adam.
c. In a miraculous manner, occasionally, God spoke to people through prophets re-announcing the coming of Messiah.
d. In a miraculous manner, an angel tells Mary about God’s plan for her, with regards to Messiah’s coming to our world.
e. In a miraculous manner, an angel speaks with Joseph, Mary’s fiancé, explaining the truth with regards to Mary’s pregnancy.
f. In a miraculous manner, the Son of God enters a human body for 34 years, even though He continues to be God.
g. In a miraculous manner, Mary gives birth to the Messiah, even though she was a virgin.
h. In a miraculous manner, a bright special star rises above the stable in Bethlehem, guiding the magi who had come to worship the Baby Jesus from the faraway Orient.
i. In a miraculous manner, an angel tells the shepherds who are watching their flocks by night outside of Bethlehem that Messiah had been incarnate.
j. In a miraculous manner, a choir of angels sing the first carol before the shepherds who watched in astonishment.
k. In a miraculous manner, an angel speaks to Mary and Joseph, telling them to go to Egypt to hide from the decree of Herod, according to which every boy born in Bethlehem under the age of two years was killed.
The coming of Messiah in the world is filled with history and miracles. Before the time had come, before Messiah was incarnate through Mary, “In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways” (Hebrews 1:1). God first spoke in Eden announcing His plan of salvation “through the seed of woman” (Genesis 3:15). Then He spoke through the patriarch Jacob, through Moses and Balaam, through Isaiah, and through Micah. And “in these last days He has spoken to us by His Son” (Hebrews 1:2).
God programs, sustains and controls history, but through Christ He wants to save and bless our lives. Be ready this Christmas to receive Messiah, the Son of God, in your heart.

Faith in God is something that is absolutely personal, but it manifests itself publicly, reason for which sometimes, pagan or atheist governments have banned faith, especially its social manifestation. The Bible teaches us that love, faith, and hope are the three greatest Christian virtues, and warns us with regards to losing faith and having our love grow cold. It is said of faith that it “sees the invisible, believes the incredible, and hopes for the impossible”.
Being at the end of a year, but also at the beginning of another, it is useful to look at the experience of the Israelites when they were slaves in Egypt, and to remember the fact that on the one hand faith is indispensable, but on the other hand, it is sometimes forbidden. Faith was indispensable for them but it was forbidden by the Egyptian government. Even though anarchy and dictatorship have passed along time, even though we are a democracy, sometimes the government still forbids faith, even though it is indispensable for believers who are born again. We will look at the experience of the Hebrews slave in Egypt and then as a practical application, we will look at ourselves, people who are free, believers, and dedicated to serving God.
God sends Moses, whom He had previously prepared for 80 years, to being the Jews out of Egypt and into Canaan. Moses went into the audience of Pharaoh, the president of Egypt, asking him to free the Hebrew slaves so they could go into the desert to worship God. Pharaoh and his government categorically refused, trying to intimidate, to stop, to isolate, and to even eliminate the faith in the Israelites hearts’.
Pharaoh said, “Who is the Lord that I should obey His voice and let Israel go? I do not know the Lord and I will not let Israel go” (Exodus 5:2). Why is faith for Christians indispensable, and why is it often forbidden by the governments of the world? Because only by faith we can enter into a personal spiritual relationship with God.
“Then Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron and said ‘Go, sacrifice to your God here in the land’” (Exodus 8:25). If he cannot eradicate the faith of believers, the government tries to control it, imposing its manifestation only in the personal life. Christ has empowered us and has sent us “in all the world” to preach the Gospel, to baptize, to make disciples and to teach them to follow God’s commands.
The year 2018 has come and gone, but faith remains. Has it remained? The answer is personal, it is between each man and God. We cannot hold on to the days of 2018, but we can hold on to the faith “given to the saints, once and for all”. It is the right time for meditation, repentance, reappointment and a new chance – 2019. May God bless us in the New Year.
