Repentance prayer.

Father God, forgive my sins. Thank you for sending Jesus Christ down to die on the cross and for shedding his blood for me. Three days later you resurrected him. I accept that. I invite Jesus Christ into my heart as my Lord and savior. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Matthew 3:13-17.

Matthew 3:13-17 [13]Then Jesus arrived from Galilee at the Jordan coming to John, to be baptized by him. [14]But John tried to prevent Him, saying, "I have need to be baptized by You, and do You come to me?" [15]But Jesus answering said to him, "Permit it at this time; for in this way it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness." Then he permitted Him. [16]After being baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove and lighting on Him, [17]and behold, a voice out of the heavens said, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased."

Matthew 1:18-25

Matthew 1:18-25 [18]Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: when His mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child by the Holy Spirit. [19]And Joseph her husband, being a righteous man and not wanting to disgrace her, planned to send her away secretly. [20]But when he had considered this, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife; for the Child who has been conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. [21]She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins." [22]Now all this took place to fulfill what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet: [23]"Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel," which translated means, "God with us." [24]And Joseph awoke from his sleep and did as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and took Mary as his wife, [25]but kept her a virgin until she gave birth to a Son; and he called His name Jesus.

Revelation 16.

Revelation 16:1-21 [1]Then I heard a loud voice from the temple, saying to the seven angels, "Go and pour out on the earth the seven bowls of the wrath of God." [2]So the first angel went and poured out his bowl on the earth; and it became a loathsome and malignant sore on the people who had the mark of the beast and who worshiped his image. [3]The second angel poured out his bowl into the sea, and it became blood like that of a dead man; and every living thing in the sea died. [4]Then the third angel poured out his bowl into the rivers and the springs of waters; and they became blood. [5]And I heard the angel of the waters saying, "Righteous are You, who are and who were, O Holy One, because You judged these things; [6]for they poured out the blood of saints and prophets, and You have given them blood to drink. They deserve it." [7]And I heard the altar saying, "Yes, O Lord God, the Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments." [8]The fourth angel poured out his bowl upon the sun, and it was given to it to scorch men with fire. [9]Men were scorched with fierce heat; and they blasphemed the name of God who has the power over these plagues, and they did not repent so as to give Him glory. [10]Then the fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom became darkened; and they gnawed their tongues because of pain, [11]and they blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores; and they did not repent of their deeds. [12]The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river, the Euphrates; and its water was dried up, so that the way would be prepared for the kings from the east. Armageddon [13]And I saw coming out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits like frogs; [14]for they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them together for the war of the great day of God, the Almighty. [15]("Behold, I am coming like a thief. Blessed is the one who stays awake and keeps his clothes, so that he will not walk about naked and men will not see his shame.") [16]And they gathered them together to the place which in Hebrew is called Har-Magedon. Seventh Bowl of Wrath [17]Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl upon the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple from the throne, saying, "It is done." [18]And there were flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder; and there was a great earthquake, such as there had not been since man came to be upon the earth, so great an earthquake was it, and so mighty. [19]The great city was split into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. Babylon the great was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of His fierce wrath. [20]And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. [21]And huge hailstones, about one hundred pounds each, came down from heaven upon men; and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, because its plague was extremely severe.

Luke 2:1-21.

Luke 2:1-21 [1]Now in those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus, that a census be taken of all the inhabited earth. [2]This was the first census taken while Quirinius was governor of Syria. [3]And everyone was on his way to register for the census, each to his own city. [4]Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David, [5]in order to register along with Mary, who was engaged to him, and was with child. [6]While they were there, the days were completed for her to give birth. [7]And she gave birth to her firstborn son; and she wrapped Him in cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. [8]In the same region there were some shepherds staying out in the fields and keeping watch over their flock by night. [9]And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened. [10]But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; [11]for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. [12]This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger." [13]And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, [14]"Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased." [15]When the angels had gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds began saying to one another, "Let us go straight to Bethlehem then, and see this thing that has happened which the Lord has made known to us." [16]So they came in a hurry and found their way to Mary and Joseph, and the baby as He lay in the manger. [17]When they had seen this, they made known the statement which had been told them about this Child. [18]And all who heard it wondered at the things which were told them by the shepherds. [19]But Mary treasured all these things, pondering them in her heart. [20]The shepherds went back, glorifying and praising God for all that they had heard and seen, just as had been told them. Jesus Presented at the Temple [21]And when eight days had passed, before His circumcision, His name was then called Jesus, the name given by the angel before He was conceived in the womb.

Jeremiah 31:27-40.

Jeremiah 31:27-40 [27]"Behold, days are coming," declares the Lord, "when I will sow the house of Israel and the house of Judah with the seed of man and with the seed of beast. [28]As I have watched over them to pluck up, to break down, to overthrow, to destroy and to bring disaster, so I will watch over them to build and to plant," declares the Lord. [29]"In those days they will not say again, 'The fathers have eaten sour grapes, And the children's teeth are set on edge.' [30]But everyone will die for his own iniquity; each man who eats the sour grapes, his teeth will be set on edge. [31]"Behold, days are coming," declares the Lord, "when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah, [32]not like the covenant which I made with their fathers in the day I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, although I was a husband to them," declares the Lord. [33]"But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days," declares the Lord, "I will put My law within them and on their heart I will write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. [34]They will not teach again, each man his neighbor and each man his brother, saying, 'Know the Lord,' for they will all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them," declares the Lord, "for I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more." [35]Thus says the Lord, Who gives the sun for light by day And the fixed order of the moon and the stars for light by night, Who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar; The Lord of hosts is His name: [36]"If this fixed order departs From before Me," declares the Lord, "Then the offspring of Israel also will cease From being a nation before Me forever." [37]Thus says the Lord, "If the heavens above can be measured And the foundations of the earth searched out below, Then I will also cast off all the offspring of Israel For all that they have done," declares the Lord. [38]"Behold, days are coming," declares the Lord, "when the city will be rebuilt for the Lord from the Tower of Hananel to the Corner Gate. [39]The measuring line will go out farther straight ahead to the hill Gareb; then it will turn to Goah. [40]And the whole valley of the dead bodies and of the ashes, and all the fields as far as the brook Kidron, to the corner of the Horse Gate toward the east, shall be holy to the Lord; it will not be plucked up or overthrown anymore forever."
