This is how BILLIONS of ignorant idol worshiping fools are duped by the twisting of scripture and half-truths.
I do pray if you do not know the correct story, that you will get a proper Bible and read the story for yourself. Do not rely on someone who will NOT give you Chapter and verse, IN CONTEXT, to back up what they say. It needs to be taken out of a WORD FOR WORD Bible and NOT from a variety of paraphrase and other corrupted translations to try and prove their point! 99.999% of the scripture you get here is out of the King James Version!
Yes, of course, today’s Muslim migrants are exactly like Joseph and Mary. Exactly. Jihad Watch reader Mark says, “Somehow I missed the part about how Mary and Joseph traveled to Bethlehem to plunder, rape and steal from the residents there…” Jihad Watch
VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis in Christmas Eve remarks Sunday likened the journey of Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem to the migrations of millions of people today who are forced to leave homelands for a better life, or just for survival, and he expressed hope that no one will feel “there is no room for them on this Earth.”
Francis celebrated late evening Christmas vigil Mass in the splendor of St. Peter’s Basilica, telling the faithful that the “simple story” of Jesus’ birth in a manger changed “our history forever. Everything that night became a source of hope.”
Noting that Mary and Joseph arrived in a land “where there was no place for them,” Francis drew parallels to contemporary time.
“So many other footsteps are hidden in the footsteps of Joseph and Mary,” he said in his homily. “We see the tracks of entire families forced to set out in our own day. We see the tracks of millions of persons who do not choose to go away but, driven from their land, leave behind their dear ones.” Read more of what this Biblically ignorant false Prophet said here.
If this idiot pope was really God’s man you would think he knew WHY Joseph and Mary went to Bethlehem. They were NOT fleeing any government or from war. They HAD to return to be counted in a Census. ALL people had to do that and then they returned afterwards. THAT is why there was NO ROOMS anywhere in the city and they had to stay in the stable.
Joseph lived in Nazareth at the time but needed to travel south to the region of Judea, “to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David” (Luke 2:4). Naturally, Joseph took his betrothed, Mary, to go with him to be counted as a member of his family. Thus, the young couple ended up in the small town of Bethlehem at the time of Jesus’ birth.
This location aligns with the prophecy foretold by Micah, proclaiming that the Christ would be born in Bethlehem: “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times” (Micah 5:2).
Because so many had returned to Bethlehem for the census, the small city was overflowing with people. There was no room for Mary and Joseph in the inn, which forced them to take refuge in the only place available—a shelter for animals. (Although the Bible never mentions animals being present at the birth of Christ, Luke does say that the baby Jesus was laid in a manger—and the presence of a manger strongly implies the presence of animals.)
Traditionally, the “inn” referred to in Luke 2:7 is thought to be a kind of commercial hotel. And the place where Mary and Joseph took shelter was a stable somewhere in the vicinity. However, we don’t know for sure if that was the case, because the Greek word translated as “inn” (kataluma) can also be translated as “guest room.” This translation would lead us to envision more of a private home filled with guests, plus a separate area used to house the family’s animals.
Sometimes the place for animals was located on the lower level of a house, away from where the people lived. So, when Luke refers to “no room in the kataluma,” he could have meant there was no room on the upper level, which was already full of sleeping visitors or family. Archaeological findings have also revealed homes that merely had a wall separating the front of the house from the back, where animals were kept safe. Both of these floor plans imply an indoor animal shelter connected to the house in some way. Regardless, there was a manger or feeding trough in the place where Christ was born, and that was used as a resting place for the newborn Jesus, as stated in Luke 2:7. Source: Got Questions
Now what this Fool should have compared them fleeing from was when Herod ordered ALL male children 2 years and under be killed. That was because he was trying to eliminate Jesus because the wise men did not return and tell him where Jesus was. It was then that Joseph and Mary fled to Egypt as instructed by an angel in a dream:
Matthew 2:13-15 “And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him. 14 When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt: 15 And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men.”
All he is doing is trying to get people to accept the infiltration and take over of millions of Muslims that are being used as pawns by Lucifer to eradicate True Christianity and to break down sovereign countries! That is the goal! He is the false prophet!
The problem is people follow a man and a religion and do not know what the Bible says. That is why untold BILLIONS are in HELL at this moment, and there will be BILLIONS more to follow!
Don’t be one of those stupid sheep being led to slaughter!
