When it was time for Jesus to leave the earth, he told his disciples at the Last Supper that he must now go away, but that god, the Father was faithful, and would not leave mankind comfortless. Jesus told the disciples that it must go away, but the Father would send them another comforter who will testify of me, and will lead and guide you into all the truth, and can even show you things to come.

The Holy Ghost is a great mystery to me. It has been since I first started my own personal spiritual journey over 20 years ago. The Holy Ghost has proved to me to be the “great comforter” Jesus spoke of to his disciples at the Last Supper meeting.

Let us talk a little about this man called JESUS.

Jesus was born to a woman named Mary who was the wife of Joseph. However, his conception came before Joseph and Mary knew one another as man and wife. Mary was pregnant with a child of the Holy Ghost.

Joseph was a just man and was not desiring or willing to make his wife a public example and decided to put her away privately. While Joseph thought about these things, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and told Joseph to not be afraid to keep Mary as his wife, for that which was conceived in her was of the Holy Ghost.

The angel proceeded to tell Joseph Mary would bring forth a son and his name should be called JESUS. Jesus was to save his people from their sins.

All this was done to fulfill a prophesy spoken of the Lord which said:

• "Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which is being interpreted as, God with us."

Joseph then arose from sleep and did as the angel of the Lord had bidded him. He then took Mary unto himself as his wife. Joseph and Mary did not know one another intimately as man and wife until she had brought forth her firstborn son of whom they did call JESUS.

How lovely are the feet of mankind that brings forth to us good tidings from heaven?

Jesus was a man such as that. He came to bring us good tidings of those things God, the Father in heaven was preparing for those who would love and serve him.

Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the King. Wise men from the east came into Jerusalem and asked where is this one that is born King of the Jews? They had seen his star in the east and had come to worship him.

King Herod heard these things and he was troubled as was all of Jerusalem. They were all troubled. King Herod gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together in a meeting and demanded to know where Christ should be born. The people gathered in this meeting told King Herod, Christ should be born in Bethlehem of Judaea because it was written by a prophet that this would be so.
