Christmas did not bring peace on earth, but it started war in heaven and war on earth (Revelation 12:1-9). But the baby born two thousand years ago accomplished four things (Revelation 12:10-11):

  1. The plan of salvation was accomplished.
  2. The Kingdom of Christ assured.
  3. The evil will finally be destroyed. and
  4. Until then the people of God will live by faith and stand firm no matter what happens.
