And when she saw Him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast about in her mind what manner of salutation this should be?
And the Angel said unto her, "fear not, Mary, for thou hast found favour with GOD. And behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call His name JESUS. HE shall be great, and shall be called The Son of The Highest; and THE LORD GOD shall give unto Him the throne of his father David. And He shall reign over the house of Jacob forever; and of His Kingdom there shall be no end. "
Then said Mary unto the Angel, "how shall this be, seeing I know not a man?"
And the Angel answered and said unto her, "THE HOLY GHOST shall come upon thee, and the power of THE HIGHEST shall overshadow thee; therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called THE SON of GOD." Luke 1:26-35, King James Holy Bible.
Of course, you will recognize this as the beginning of the Christmas story of how JESUS was born on the earth in the form of a human baby to a virgin, in a miraculous way for the purpose of GOD, to be the Saviour of the world. If you read the Old Testament in the Holy Bible you will see that the coming of a Messiah was foretold by the prophets. Also, as you read the Holy Bible just as you read any book--from cover to cover starting with the first page, you begin to understand the character and the methods of GOD.
Because humans being human, they sinned against GOD and they could not save themselves; so GOD created His plan of salvation. I think GOD understood that after HE sent the great flood [called "the deluge" in some countries] that covered the entire earth with water for 40 days, and GOD only saved Noah and his family because Noah was obedient to GOD. If you read that scripture, you see that GOD repented Himself of total destruction of all other humans and set his bow in the sky to remind all people that HE would never again flood the entire earth to destroy all civilizations at once. Then GOD sent prophets to tell the people that HE HIMSELF had a plan for HE HIMSELF to bear the sins of the world and to make a way for humans to escape their sinful nature. The above scriptures are the beginning of that plan coming to fruition as recorded by the prophets, disciples, witnesses who obeyed GOD and wrote down what HE told them as a testimony/ witness.
I, Gloria Poole, am posting these scriptures here as a way of reminding all people on earth that it is not the will of your FATHER in heaven that any should go to hell, [per Bible] and that HE has a plan if you will accept and obey HIM. This is the Christmas season, when Christians celebrate the advent of JESUS The Messiah on the earth, as a human baby, who grew in grace and wisdom of THE HOLY SPIRIT, until HE reached the point of the full obedience to GOD of the cross and resurrection.
You may read more about GOD's plans for humans [as written in Holy Bible] on these blogs of mine:
And also on other blogs of mine at times . See my https://gloriapoole.blogspot.com and the about me page for a list of blogs I create and own.
Also, remember that I also create art often and post it to my blogs that are primarily for that purpose, but I also post art to this blog and every blog of mine at times, including blogs I create primarily for the purpose of teaching public health [as a Registered Nurse, licensed in Missouri but before that in Georgia for years and also other states].
Update on 18 Dec 2014 at 3:59pm to add that I posted some content to help you celebrate Christmas on this blog of mine:
I am not adding art to illustrate these scriptures this because I do not want the art to be a distraction from the words. The words are succinct yet they give much information about the world to come.
The King James Holy Bible is not copyrighted and is in the public domain. That means that anyone can copy the words of it.
However, much of the content on this blog and the name words that WORK are copyrighted and I own the copyright since I coined the phrase words that WORK in the state of Georgia and registered it there to begin with in 1993. Also, my words, photos I photograph and art I create are copyrighted content. So I am adding my personal logo to this to remind all that this blog belongs to me and that the art on it and the words and the photos on it were created by me, belong to me and are copyrighted to me. I created the words of the Bible that I posted above in a script font but cyber-criminals at remote location who hate GOD tried to use it to lock down my computer. I am accustomed to having to endure the enemies of GOD breaking into my accounts and computers because it has been that way since 2008 when that evil campaign of murderous democrats hacked every republican computer in the nation to try to censor and control the election. But I know from reading the HOLY BIBLE, that GOD will have HIS revenge on them.
I am adding symbols that are visual reminders of the mission, location, and owner of this blog.

I have never signed a blanket waiver of my copyrights to art I have created and do not have an artist's rep [agent], nor literary agent to represent me, and never did. I drew, painted, signed, photographed and uploaded all art on this blog and on any blog of mine.
For the record and to establish provenance of art I have already created also: the art I have created and signed and posted to this blog of mine is part of an on-going series of art I created since year 1991 beginning in Atlanta, GA that "blossomed" in year 2005 in Aurora, Colorado when I lived there for one year [May 2006-May 2007], and art began to really become an integral part of my efforts to save the baby humans from premeditated destruction. In 2005, I began to realize I could use the art to illustrate my talking points in some cases, and to build a secondary "career' for me as artist. In the year 2006 when I had endured and lived to tell about it a violent crash down a flight of stairs and had trauma, fractures, concussion, because my then-husband DBP tried to kill me to 'make it look like an accident" and he tried to twist off my broken leg, I had immobility for months except on crutches and walking boot after surgery to repair fractures and implant metal. As I sat with leg propped up I began to draw daily and paint to occupy the time and my mind. I also began to post art to the web on my blogs and websites, and also photographs I had photographed. I began a series of art then that is named "ethnic series by Gloria" [me] to attempt to draw and paint an art work of every ethnic group tribe, language, culture in the world and I created eight initial oil paintings in the first batch and posted them to the web on domains of mine. I moved from Aurora to zip code 80203 for 2 and 1/2 years and then moved to Missouri on Oct 31, 2009 with the art I had in my possession at that time. I paint some of the sketches I created in do-overs into oils on canvas and those are very visible on the web. I put many of them on my mini exhibit of art at https://mini-exhibition.blogspot.com, and also on my Picasa albums at https://picasaweb.google.com/gloriapoole.
I, Gloria Poole, am a white, Southern Baptist Christian, brown-haired woman, single-again, twice-divorced,natural mother of only two children who are grown daughters named Jennifer and Leigh, and also a republican, personhood promoter, prolife activist-blogger, photographer, artist in all mediums, poet, author, illustrator, cartoonist, writer, University of Georgia alumna, U S citizen born in the state of Georgia [but I lived in several places including New York, UK briefly, Nebraska, South Carolina, Colorado, Virginia, North Carolina], former TV producer,tweeter, Registered Nurse licensed in Missouri [but before that in Georgia, UK, other states], owner/writer/blogger/photographer/illustrator for words that WORK, and also for Tapestry of LIFE,and also for Life Media & Publishing in years 2004-2011; and a just-for-fun-photographer, and citizen journo . Gloria Poole is my real, born with legal name and I resumed my full maiden name including my surname of Poole legally by Court order at the time of divorce from male DBP in Colorado in Oct, 2007 at Centennial, Colorado; and I also removed the Pappas name from my name forevermore at the time of final decree in Oct 2007 . I was glad to end that four year horrible marriage of multiple trauma and injuries to me caused by male DBP, [which I testified about in Court on several occasions ]. That second divorce is public record in the state of Colorado, and my first divorce is public record in the state of Georgia. I have created art regularly since 1991, and I had formal training in drawing and in mixing colors /paint and painting in oils and I post much of the art I create on blogs of mine. You can see some of that art on one of my name blogs at https://gloriapoole.blogspot.com and see the about me page of that blog for the list of art blogs I own and post art too, that are all different. .
