'Twas the Night Before Jesus was Born is a story of the birth of Christ inspired by the timeless classic, 'Twas the Night Before Christmas (Moore). Much like today, during the time of Jesus's birth, the world was in chaos. People were immoral and doing their own thing, but God's children prayed and anxiously awaited the birth of their promised King. Year after year, believers waited in anticipation for the miracle birth but so did the evil King Herod.
Although the evil King Herod plotted to kill all newborn males in hopes of killing the promised king, his efforts were futile. God, in his infinite wisdom, had already plotted an escape route for Joseph, Mary, and the baby. Jesus miraculously survived the killing field of King Herod, and he grew from a child to a man. He transformed the lives of ordinary people and made them do extraordinary things. Many recognized him as being the Son of God by the signs, wonders, and miracles he performed and they followed him. He gave sight to those who were blind, baptized those who believed in him, healed those who were sick, preached to those who needed to hear the truth, forgave those who needed to be forgiven, and delivered those who were bound by the chains of sin. Before Jesus was taken up into heaven, he gave all of those who followed him the power to transform lives, heal the sick, preach the truth and free those who are bound by sin. He told them they would do greater works than he did--if only they would be willing to work.
