Studying the bible is always good. For years, I have been studying the bible and I found it wonderful



The birth of Jesus Christ as recorded in the Bible as many lessons and benefits some of the lessons and benefits that we can learn from his birth continuing in this article.

23) Good to Hold off For A While

On some occasions it is good to keep something as a secret for a while some however fail to do this but we need to know that in some instances this is good. Keeping secrets for a while does not mean any or all of the following:

a) it Is Not for Lack of God's Power

Some people misconstrue keeping of Secrets and they will think that anyone who keep secret is because the person lacks God's power this is not totally true as we can see from the incident of the birth of Jesus Christ the Gospel according to Saint Matthew chapter 2:14.

"When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt:" (Matt. 2:14)

In this book we shall see that after the angels have spoken with Joseph the husband of Mary he took a step of taking the child and his mother away from the land taken them away by night secretly, stealthily, he took them away. We did not read from here that he informed any person before taking the step, he took the step according to the instructions heard from the angels.

Taken the mother and the child away does not connote lack of God's power but it was done because he knows that prevention is better than cure.

It is always good to prevent something from happening than wanting to cure or stop it after it has happened.


B) It Is Not Because of Faithlessness

There are people who taught that when a person keeps a secret such a person lacks Faith in the Lord but this is not true according to the Bible chapter and verse read above we shall see that Joseph had faith and because of the faith he had that was why he took the step which was taken taking the wife and the sun away from the place.

24) Where a Person Lives Has Influence Over Him/Her In Future

Because of what God has ordained everyone to become on earth, God usually orchestrated our steps towards achieving such thing on Earth.

This is done in various ways amidst the ways that God does this is by leading us to live at different places at different phases of our lives because he knows what we shall undertake and we need to be adequately prepared for that.

Go therefore has allowed for Jesus Christ to be taken to Egypt land so that he will receive the needful teachings from his antagonizers and enemies.

You may have been led to live where you least expect that you will live in, but you should know this for sure that God has allowed this because he knows that going to such places to live in will benefit your life in the nearest future.

"When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt:

"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." (Matt. 2:14)

Jesus Christ being a star the new star has been led to where he will be prepared for the past and enormous work ahead of him.

It is therefore not surprising that there are people (on this part of the world that the writer hails from) who have failed on their duties because their preparations for the task ahead of them do not match the tasks they eventually encounter.

The brief elucidation continues in the next article.
