It is Christmas, God Created a Child – A Christmas Poem inspired by a revelation given to Bettie Mitchell regarding why God saved humankind in the most unusual manner that we celebrate during Christmas.


It is Christmas, God Created a Child

It is Christmas,

a babe in a manger lay,

Why has He come?

The reason of the mystery revealed.

"Adoration of the Shepherds" by Gerard van Honthorst, 1622
“Adoration of the Shepherds” by Gerard van Honthorst, 1622


In the beginning,

God created them, man, then woman,

What would they do?

He walked with them in the garden.




Their betrayal,

broke His heart, and He sent them away,

with a gift of clothing,

the first sacrifice, but not the last.



God left them,

He pondered what went wrong,

and how to make it right again.

He watched them from afar, as a nervous parent.




He watched,

as they conceived and bore children,

outside of the garden,

the results were disastrous, murder, betrayal




He sent a flood,

to destroy them all, to wipe the earth clean,

for the earth was innocent,

He wrestled with the implications, and saw Noah.




He would allow them to live,

Abraham confirmed what he saw in Noah,

Humankind still loved Him,

Yet they were so evil, how could He come close?




Then it came to Him,

Like a muse from below, for in the beginning,

In the garden,

They were perfect, they were His, and they were adults.




He would create a child,

not cursed, as those outside of the garden,

but perfect,

As Adam and Eve were, in the beginning




He inhaled,

and breathed life into the darkness,

it was perfect,

They must see how to live, from cradle to grave, our perfect union




The perfect end,

The only way to blot out, the transgression in the garden,

for in the beginning,

it was good.




The baby arrived,

to teach us how to live, and take the punishment,

once and for all,

to perfect the creation and human hearts.




His will be done,

His Kingdom come, then, now, and forever more,

God created a child,

at Christmas, to make things right.



God created a child.

Merry Christmas!

Stay tuned and Trust Jesus.
