On the very same day that Jesus rose from the grave, two of His disciples were leaving Jerusalem to go back home in Emmaus, which was a seven-mile walk. While they walked, they talked about Jesus’ death and burial. As they were conversing about all the things that had happened, Jesus appeared and began walking with them. But their eyes were restrained so that they did not know who He was. After a while, Jesus said to them, “Oh foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into His glory” Then beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself. The account is written in Luke 24:13-27.

God is miraculous at concealing things. In this story, Jesus conceals Himself in order that He might reveal His true identity as written in the Bible. May I remind you that the only Bible they had was the Old Testament books, where amazingly, Jesus is hidden throughout all of the books of the Old Testament.

Christmas is the time of year that we celebrate the birth of a baby named Jesus; but what child is this? In the midst of all the celebration—Christmas trees and colorful lights, Santa Claus, reindeer, jingle bells, sleigh rides, family exchanging gifts and singing Christmas Carols—we find the Nativity Scene. In the center of this glorious and magnificent scene lies a child, the baby Jesus, wrapped in rags, lying in a manger, surrounded by cattle for warmth. Of all the people in the whole world, only His parents and a few young shepherds in a field keeping watch over their flock know the true identity of this child. Two years later, three men traveling from the east, whom we know today as the “Three Wise Men” brought gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh to the young child.

I am reminded of a famous Christmas song, “What Child is This?” The song describes this child as seen through the eyes of everyday people. Like you and me, the writers of this song wanted to know more about this child, so they asked the question: “What Child is this?”

We're seriously in need of a crime patrol. Crime in New Orleans is out of control. EricDunbar.com is allocating the entire month of December to pray for our beloved city. I am asking you to join wit us in prayer for the month of December.

What can we do to change the crime situation in our city? We can start by not giving up, by not turning a deaf ear to the cries of the innocent, whose blood cries out from the city’s streets in eternal silence. We all can't protest crime in the city by marching through the city’s streets carrying signs, but we, the body of Christ can unite to form a crime patrol—we can pray.

Pray 'Peace' in New Orleans

Jeremiah 29:7 says "...seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray to the Lord for it, for in its peace you will have peace." While God may not have brought us to New Orleans as captives, I believe no citizen of New Orleans is in the city by coincidence. We are here because God placed us here. Therefore, we should “…pray to the Lord for it, for in its peace you will have peace.” Click below to read more-->

God is not angry with you. So don’t listen to the devil’s lies. The pain of being addicted to a substance, even a substance like nicotine or alcohol, can be depressing. Don’t allow the devil to make you condemn yourself. Satan is the great prosecutor and an excellent liar. He will tell you that God is angry with you and He is not going to help you quit smoking; you’re going to die of lung cancer.

Don’t be overwhelmed by life’s struggles. In such difficult times, it is easy to conclude that God is trying to teach us something through our suffering, so we turn to drugs and alcohol. While there is never an easy answer that alludes to our suffering, you should consider three things: (1) the answer is not in drugs and alcohol, and (2) God does not teach life’s lessons through pain and suffering (3) God is not angry with you.

Mark 2:3-4
“Then they came to Him, bringing a paralytic who was carried by four men. And when they could not come near Him because of the crowd, they uncovered the roof where He was. So when they had broken through, they let down the bed on which the paralytic was lying.”

Your Faith Can Deliver Your Friend
Is your addicted friend searching for freedom from drugs? Why not bring them to Jesus. That’s what the friends of the paralytic man in the Bible did (Mark 2:3-12). The man in this story did not have a drug addiction, but he had a condition that he was helpless to do anything about.


Thank God, this man had believing friends who would not leave him in his dilemma. His friends had obviously done all they could to help him. They had probably gone to the best physicians in the land, and they had no doubt tried every healing herb suggested to them, but still their friend could not walk. But they didn’t give up; they decided to use the only available option left—their faith. Click below to read more-->

If God blesses you, then your blessing is forever. No one can reverse your blessing. The devil cannot reverse it, your enemies cannot reverse it, bloggers cannot reverse it, your Facebook friends cannot reverse it, and God certainly will not un-bless what He has already blessed.

There was a king named Balak, the son of Zippor, who was king of the Moabites. Balak saw what Israel had done to the Amorites and the people of Moab were afraid that Israel would take possession of their land. So Balak sent for Balaam the sorcerer to curse Israel.

God came to Balaam and said to him, “You shall not curse the people, for they are blessed.” So Balaam said to Balak’s men, “Though Balak were to give me his house full of silver and gold, I could not go beyond the word of the Lord my God, to do less or more” (Numbers 22:18 ).

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
The Pilgrims owed their first Thanksgiving to an Abenaki Indian named Squanto, a member of the Pawtuxet tribe. Squanto taught the malnourished Pilgrims how to cultivate corn, extract sap from maple trees, catch fish, and how to avoid poisonous plants. Fourteen months later, in November 1621 the Pilgrims reaped their first harvest of corn. Today, we commemorate that harvest as “Thanksgiving.”
Thanksgiving is the name that the Pilgrims attributed to their festive celebration of the harvest. Today, we have much to be thankful for. Like the Pilgrims, we also have a tribal hero, a member of the Israelite tribe of Judah. His name is Jesus. We call Him the Christ because He is our Savior, having delivered us from something much worse than a brutal winter. Click below to read more -->

Many people believe God is trying to teach them a lesson when they make wrong judgments, but many of the things we suffer are due to the choices we make. You must understand that God is not angry with you.

If you are struggling with drug addiction, then you should know that Christ is the solution. You might have been told by your doctor that drug addiction is in your bloodline. Perhaps your daddy was a drug addict, and so was his daddy, but that doesn’t mean that you are destined to be a drug addict. While addiction might run in your generic history, you don’t have to succumb to it. The blood of Christ is stronger than any blood, including blood that has been tainted with drug and alcohol addiction.
