Great Bible Verses For Christmas Cards

Great Bible Verses For Christmas Cards December 14, 2018

For millions around the world, Christmas time is one of the most wonderful times of the year, so if you’re sending Christmas cards, here are some great Bible verses you can use.

Isaiah 9:6

Many prophecies were written concerning the coming of Jesus Christ, the Messiah…or Immanuel, who would save God’s people from their sins. For example, in Isaiah 7:14 Isaiah wrote, “Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” The Apostle John saw this fulfilled before his very eyes and wrote that “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14). Immanuel means “God with us,” and God was with the Apostles in Jesus’ earthly ministry, being with them, but He’s also abiding with every child of God, so God is with you if you’ve trusted in the Savior. When Isaiah the Prophet wrote Isaiah 9, it was as if these things were already done, and for God, when He says something will come to pass, it must come to pass…it always does and it always will. Isaiah wrote, “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6). The Son was born into the flesh…then the Son was given…giving His life as a ransom for us (Mark 10:45; John 3:16).

Luke 2:11-12

Luke the Physician, in writing to Theophilus (Luke 1:1-4), wrote of Jesus, “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger” (Luke 2:11-12), and there were many eye witnesses that saw this. For example, “in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night” (Luke 2:8) who “went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in a manger” (Luke 2:16). The Magi also came and saw the Lord, bringing gifts fit for a king, for that was His purpose (Luke 23:3; John 18:37), however, they came at a much later time (Matt 2:11). It was all so incredible that Mary herself could not believe it, asking, “why is this granted to me that the mother of my Lord should come to me” (Luke 1:43)?

Matthew 1:21

After Joseph was told in a dream to not put Mary away because she had conceived from the Holy Spirit, he was told that “She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins” (Matt 1:21). The Jews were expecting the Messiah, but not one that would save them from their sins, or one born where animals are kept. This is why Matthew, written specifically to the Christian Jews, said that Jesus “will save his people from their sins.” Most of the Jewish religious leaders trusted in their own righteousness (Luke 18:9; Rom 10:3), but that is nothing less than filthy rags to God (Isaiah 64:6), so to make it obvious to the Jews, Matthew quotes heavily from the Old Testament, including Isaiah 9:6, where he wrote, “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel” (which means, God with us)” (Matt 1:23).

John 1:14

You might not think that John 1:14 is associated with Christmas, but then again, we can see that the moment that the Word became flesh was important, and that took place in Bethlehem, the least of the towns, not even regarded as a proper city. The Apostle John wrote that “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14). Even the Magi recognized His coming as a prophesied king, inquiring, “Where is he who has been born king of the Jews? For we saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him” (Matt 2:2). The Word became flesh in a time and place where there was a religious or spiritual wasteland or wilderness, and that was in Judea and Jerusalem. The Jews had handcuffed the people into hundreds of laws that even exceeded those of the Old Testament, so Jesus’ coming was just as Isaiah the Prophet described: “There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse, and a branch from his roots shall bear fruit.” (Isaiah 11:1).

Others Scriptures

Other Scriptures that you might use for Christmas cards are:

Luke 2:14 “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”

Luke 1:46-47 “And Mary said, “My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.”

Luke 2:15-16  “When the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made known to us.” And they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in a manger.”

Matthew 2:11 “And going into the house they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him. Then, opening their treasures, they offered him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh.”

Micah 5:2 “But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, who are too little to be among the clans of Judah, from you shall come forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel, whose coming forth is from of old, from ancient days.”


If you liked these Christmas Bible verses, please feel free to share them with someone else this holiday season. If you have never put your trust in Christ, then you cannot have the peace of God, for no one can have the peace of God until they’ve made peace with God (John 3:36b), and that comes only through His Son (John 3:16; Acts 4:12; Rom 5:1, 8:1). Today is the day of salvation (2 Cor 6:2), because there’s no guarantee tomorrow will come before Christ returns or you draw your last breath (Heb 9:27; Rev 20:12-15). Today is the best of days to believe…and if you do, you can see the signs, and “when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near” (Luke 21:28). You will either rejoice at His appearing, or grieve the moment you see Him (Rev 1:7). I pray it is the former.

    If you were an honest person jack you would be sending out your x-mas greetings with the “perfect word of god” not fabricating crap via “cherry picking” as you lying propagandist religious indoctrinators are so prone to do!

    Here’s my nominations for x-mas card of the year! ALL taken directly from the “word of god”!

    She lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses. Ezekiel 23:20 NIV….MERRY XMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    You will be pledged to be married to a woman, but another will take her and rape her. You will build a house, but you will not live in it. You will plant a vineyard, but you will not even begin to enjoy its fruit. Your ox will be slaughtered before your eyes, but you will eat none of it. Your donkey will be forcibly taken from you and will not be returned. Your sheep will be given to your enemies, and no one will rescue them. . . . The Lord will afflict your knees and legs with painful boils that cannot be cured, spreading from the soles of your feet to the top of your head. Deuteronomy 28:30-31,35….HAVE A BLESSED XMAS!

    When a woman has a discharge, if her discharge in her body is blood, she shall continue in her menstrual impurity for seven days; and whoever touches her shall be unclean until evening. Everything also on which she lies during her menstrual impurity shall be unclean, and everything on which she sits shall be unclean. Leviticus 15: 19-20….YOU BETTER NOT POUT, YOU BETTER NOT CRY!

    Early in the morning, as Jesus was on his way back to the city, he was hungry. Seeing a fig tree by the road, he went up to it but found nothing on it except leaves. Then he said to it, “May you never bear fruit again!” Immediately the tree withered. Matthew 21:18-22 NIV…..HOPE YOU GOT AN ARTIFICIAL TREE! HO HO HO!

    Now therefore, kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman who has known man intimately. But all the girls who have not known man intimately, spare for yourselves. Numbers 31:17-18…..TIS THE SEASON TO BE JOLLY, FA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA!

    He [Josiah] executed the priests of the pagan shrines on their own altars, and he burned human bones on the altars to desecrate them…. He did this in obedience to all the laws written in the scroll that Hilkiah the priest had found in the LORD’s Temple. Never before had there been a king like Josiah, who turned to the LORD with all his heart and soul and strength, obeying all the laws of Moses. And there has never been a king like him since. 2 Kings 23:20-25 NLT…DON WE KNOW OUR GAY APPAREL! ooops! that’s a death penalty right jack?

    You may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you. You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land. You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance. You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way. Leviticus 25:44-46 NLT
    Slaves, obey your earthly masters with deep respect and fear. Serve them sincerely as you would serve Christ. Ephesians 6:5 NLT….SOMEONE’S GETTING COAL IN THEIR STOCKING!

  • Matthew 22:37

    Pastor Wellman, I hope you will investigate the case the great Christian Universalists make. I believe many of them to be the greatest students of scripture but the truth of the Gospel that God will save all has been obscured by mainstream traditional religionists for a long time now.
    I hope you do read them as someone who is interested in the truth.
    If you do you may find their doctrinal analysis is much more insightful than the eternal torment and annihilationist views are.
    But it could bring division. Sometimes Christ brings division but isn’t that a good thing? Isn’t that separation onto God and His ways and further away from the world and it’s ways?
    Like I said I hope you read the Christian universalists.
    “For therefore we both labor and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God,
    who is the Savior of all men, especially those that believe”
    (1 Tim. 4:10)

    An Exposition and Defense of Universalism
    by Rev. I. D. Williamson, 1840
    Sermon XI
    The Nature of Salvation
    Have a blessed day, sir!
    God is the Savior of All. On that all men can depend. He has a plan of the ages. Dr Ernest L Martin explains in his online essay The Doctrine of the Ages on the Associates for Scriptural Knowledge site.

    Christ is celebrated on Christmas because He is the Savior of All and that will be an accomplished fact.

    Look at this tract with the “all” verses explanation:

    Do You Believe All in the Bible?

    By Gary Amirault of the Tentmaker website

    The early Christians of the first few centuries knew what the Greek word “ta panta” meant. It meant “all.” They took Scriptures listed below and believed what they said. To the early Christians, “all” meant “all.” This Greek word “ta panta” meant “all” in the Greek and it means “all” in the English. Unfortunately, we live in a time when man calls good, evil and evil, good. To the modern church, “all” does not mean “all.” As a matter of fact, “all” in many evangelical churches means “some” or “very few.” Below are listed a few of the many plain scriptures which no longer mean what they say. Should you decide to believe these plain Scriptures, you will find yourself among the “remnant.” The majority of the church has long since abandoned the simplicity and power of the “Original Good News.” The remnant will embrace perfect love and cast out fear and live in a new world. Now study these Scriptures in their proper context and see the full salvation of our wonderful Father. We realize a Scripture referring to all trees cannot be meant to imply all human beings. But if the Greek for all things includes both trees and human beings, we must then include human beings. Look at the following Scriptures through all of our Heavenly Father’s attributes, Omnipotence, Omniscience, Omnipresence, and Justice beautifully and harmoniously clothe His nature which is Love. Then rejoice!

    43) Heb. 7:25 Jesus is able to save to the uttermost. How far is “uttermost?”

    44) 1Cor 15:26 Last enemy, death, will be destroyed. Including “lake of fire” which is “second death?”

    45) Is 46:10 God will do all His pleasure. Does Old Testament agree with the New?

    46) Gen 12:3 All families of the earth will be blessed. Here comes that word “all” again.

    47) Dan 4:35 God’s will done in heaven and earth. What can defeat His will?

    48) Ps 66:3,4 Enemies will submit to God. Can any stay rebellious in “hell?”

    75) Ps 135:6 God does what pleases Him. If it pleases Him to save all that He might be in all, are you upset?


    This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, Who desires (“will have” in some translations) all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time . . . (1 Tim 2:3-6). 1 John 4:14 tells us that the Father sent the Son to be Savior of the world. John 3:35 tells us that the Father has given all into Jesus’ hands. If it is the desire of the Father to save all and He has given Jesus all power and authority to do His will, why don’t we believe Him? “This is the will of the Father Who sent Me, that of all He has given Me, I should lose nothing, but raise it up at the last day.” (John 6:39) The Father has given all into His hands. (John 3:35)

    The above Scriptures speak very plainly of the salvation of everyone born under the sun. So why doesn’t everyone simply believe these Scriptures and rejoice? There are three main reasons why. First, most people are vengeful. They do not want all to receive forgiveness. As racists always need someone to look down on, so also, some Christians cannot enjoy their salvation apart from seeing others being denied theirs. They do not want anyone hired at the last hour of the day receiving the same wages as themselves. They do not think this is fair. Second, and this is why it took me so long to clearly see this wonderful truth, is that many Bibles have been tainted with the pagan doctrines of the dark ages. Roman Catholicism absorbed every dark thought it came in contact with. The early reformators, who first brought the scriptures into everyday languages, were still deeply entrenched with the false doctrines of the dark ages. These doctrines found their way into the early Bibles which still have a strong effect on leading modern Bibles. As a result, there are still a few lingering passages grossly mistranslated in our Bibles. And last, but perhaps most important, power hungry leaders have found the doctrine of eternal torment most effective in holding the masses under their control. It was effective for ancient monarchs who held their kingdoms together with fear, and it is effective even today for modern tyrants, whether they be political, business, or religious. Many leading English Bibles actually teach all three main concepts of salvation, that is, eternal torment for many, annihilation for many, and the salvation of all mankind. All three cannot be true. Write for the booklets The Early Christian View of the Savior, The Gates of Hell Shall Not Prevail, the audio tapes entitled Power of a Four Letter Word (Aion), the Origin of the Word “Eternal,” and “Is the King James Bible Inerrant? This information will make it clear that when the Scriptures declare that “Love never fails” (1Cor 13), you can be assured His love will never fail anyone born under the sun.

    When John and James wanted to bring fire down on the heads of the Samaritans for not believing the Gospel, Jesus’ words to them are still appropriate for many church members: “You do not know what manner of spirit you are of. For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them.” Are these the words you will hear one day? There is still time to study, pray, and repent. (Luke 9:54-56))

    • pud

      “the truth of the Gospel that God will save all”

      From himself?

      Demonstrate that ANYTHING in your absurd man made fairytale is actual “truth”


      • Matthew 22:37

        I am addressing the Pastor. Stop trying to derail the thread.

        Jesus saves all from death. The wages of sin is death not hell.

        Is Jesus still in hell paying for everyone? Of course not. He sat down at the right hand of God.

        Now stop derailing the thread serving your own agenda. You should be a seeker of God’s grace while you have time. Not casting philosophical burdens of proof on people you don’t even know.

        Quote: We may not understand how the spirit works; but the effect of the spirit on the lives of men is there for all to see; and the only unanswerable argument for Christianity is a Christian life. William Barclay

        Nobody owes you an argument so stop trying to control every thread on here.

        People need to assemble God’s scriptures in the Bible properly. They don’t have time to waste on your personal agenda.

        • pud

          Assertions, Claims, Nonsense. All of your babble is nonsense.

          Demonstrate that ANYTHING you just babbled is true. ANYTHING!

          Define and demonstrate what a “spirit” is

          Define and demonstrate what “true” is

          Prove your stupid Iron Age book is anything BUT the words of ignorant superstitious men

          You don’t give a shit about what’s true, honest, real or demonstrable YOU are the one with the agenda…a ridiculous insane infantile dysfunctional delusional agenda

          • Matthew 22:37

            I am putting you on block. I am sick of you derailing threads. Christians have the right to talk to other Christians without you butting in to serve your own agenda.

          • pud

            Typical coward. Tell me what my “agenda” is. No one is denying your “right” to babble nonsense with other delusional lunatics…I simply point out just how stupid and insane you all are as well as how impotent you are to address my challenges to your mindless claims and assertions. Coward

          • You do realise that this is a public blog on the internet and therefore it open to all who wish to respond? So, Pud is entitled to respond. Why should your comments be immune from rational criticism? And, by the way, are you not serving your own agenda of Christian universalism?

          • Matthew 22:37


          • I see that you are up to your usual tactics, “Glory”. You simply don’t want anyone to critique your comments, you just want to block them. You want to pontificate God’s (really your own) ideas and have no-one question you, don’t you, pope “Glory”? So are you infallible when you speak ex-cathedra?

            When are you going to run away and delete all your comments, and then come again under another moniker?

  • Matthew 22:37

    Before you refuse to check out the subtle doctrinal errors that the universalists point out consider this, Pastor.

    How can you be sure that the people that went before us didn’t make doctrinal mistakes? Augustine changed his mind doctrinally more than once. Catholicism tried to lock up all doctrine as if only popes were fit to decide on doctrine for everyone and some of the popes were flagrant sinners while holding papal office so why should they exercise Christ’s authority over scripture?

    So really what have you got but your God given mind to review doctrine and historical facts with?

    Which doctrinal interpretation is closer to the character of an all powerful God?

    If you let fear control your mind then how can you truly look at everything?

    But that is what we have today. Fear mongering in the Church when God said “Be not afraid” 389 times in the Bible.

    Read Aion-Aionios by John Wesley Hanson. Online for free. Just google the title. It is not too long a read.

    This key word mistranslation started with the Catholic Vulgate translation of the Bible and was forced on Christianity for about 1400 years by papal authority. This is how the false eternal torment doctrine got engrained falsely in mainstream Christianity.

    I hope you are Berean enough to question that doctrine if you never thought to question it before.

    Christ is the Savior of all men, especially those that believe. (cf. 1 Tim. 4:10)

    • pud

      If you were an honest person you would start with the fundamental question…”does any god exist”….when you find that you cannot answer that question in the affirmative you would abandon your nonsensical cult in a heartbeat.

      “…people fall in love with their own heterodoxies and double down when their wrong ideas come under attack. Ideology begins to replace reality, and their focus gets ever more distorted. Once that ideology is lodged deeply in the mind, it takes control of all perceptions.”

    • Are you the same person who went formerly under the moniker “Glory” or “Cloud Nine”? Christian universalism is an unusual position among Evangelical Christians that it seems very unlikely that 3 different people holding to universalism would come to this site.

    • I forgot, but have now remembered, you also went under the moniker “truthteller”. What! About 1 in a million Evangelicals hold to Christian universalism. What is the likelihood that 4 different people happened upon this website with Christian universalist views, and all writing in the same style? Isn’t it far more probable that you are one and the same person? Now, tell me the truth. Are you as Matthew 22:37 a different person from the others or are you the same person? Remember, lying is bearing false witness. If you refuse to answer, I will take it that you are all the one person.

  • Matthew 22:37

    “Faithful is the saying and welcome of all acceptation. For to this end we labor and suffer reproach, because we have our hope set on the living God, Who is THE SAVIOUR OF ALL MEN, Specially of them that believe. THESE THINGS COMMAND AND TEACH.”

    By Joseph E Kirk







  • “The virgin shall conceive and bear a son …”,

    Biologically, it is impossible for any virgin to conceive. So this passage is an ancient world Jewish myth or a miracle actually occurred. Which is the most likely? On what rational or empirical grounds can a virgin give birth? None!

    So to establish that the virgin gave birth, mustn’t you show that God exists? Then mustn’t you show that the Christian God exists and mustn’t you show that this God has revealed himself in Jesus Christ and that the bible is a reliable witness to Jesus? How can you really show that miracles occur or have occurred? And, must you not show that God cannot use myth as a literary form? If myth is a legitimate literary form in the ancient world literature, then would it not be highly likely that God (if he exists) would use such a literary form amongst many others?
