WATCH: Chris Pratt Stuns With Powerful Gospel Message at Disneyland Candlelight Ceremony

Published

on

You know the power of the Gospel is entirely unstoppable when even incredibly secular Disney finds itself glorifying God come Christmastime.

This year, unapologetically Christian actor Chris Pratt read straight from the Gospel of Luke and touched on the inspiring message of the Nativity at Disneyland’s history Candlelight Ceremony and Processional that truly celebrated the Reason for the Season.
This beautiful ceremony offers a tiny, but bright, ray of hope for Christians praying for a return to biblical principles.
The 2018 Candlelight Ceremony began with a skillfully orchestrated and performed an instrumental medley of Christmas hymns such as “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.”

When they belted out “He is the King of kings!” the friendly, smiling actor took the stage and began retelling the story from Luke of God sending the angel Gabriel to announce to Mary her incredible privilege of becoming the mother of the Savior.

“The Bible says, ‘when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this was,” Pratt said to his massive audience.

“That seems kind of confusing to me, so I’ll just paraphrase: she was kind of scared because an angel just fell from the ceiling,” he added, in his signature style of sharing the gospel folded into humor.

Pratt continued through the story with deep reverence and a couple of respectful chuckles as he stumbled over the word “conceive,” before the choir and orchestra proceeded to perform “The First Noel.”

“Ladies and gentlemen, it was really my honor to share this beautiful Candlelight Ceremony with all of you,” Pratt said at the conclusion of the ceremony. “It’s been a very special and inspiring night.”

“For me, being a parent has really changed my life in so many ways. And one of those ways is to understand, truly, the love that a father could have for a child,” he added. “The way we love our children, the more we love our children, the more we will understand the capacity for our Father in heaven to love us.”

“Each and every one of us a precious creation, and he just marvels in the ways that we can try to please Him. That should give us a great deal of comfort. I know it does for me.”
Amen!

12-Year-Old Hailed as Hero After Saving His Friends Life After Disturbing Snapchat Posts

We certainly hope there are many more young people like Gabe out there willing to reach out and intervene when their friends are in trouble

Most of the time, when we think of preteens using Snapchat, we think of all the scary things that can happen online. Bullying, predatory behavior, pornography. It’s a scary cyber world out there. But oddly enough, when one 12-year-old with a good heart and sharp instincts managed to use Snapchat to get his friend the help she needed in the nick of time, by responding quickly right when he noticed something was amiss. Yahoo News reports: Gabe Rongier had been chatting with his friend, who he met on the social media app through a mutual friend, when he noticed a drastic change in the girl’s emotions. According to CBS Pittsburgh, the girl shared a disturbing post that read she “wouldn’t be here tomorrow.” Want daily pop culture news delivered to your inbox? for Yahoo’s newsletter. Gabe, not knowing how to alert the authorities in Texas about the girl possibly being a danger to herself, called the suicide hotline. “I called the suicidal prevention services and it linked me to Officer Chandler [in Texas,]” Gabe told the outlet. “He went to her house, checked up on her. The next day he called me and said, ‘She’s fine. It’s real.’” Gabe’s parents, Fred and Lori, were informed by investigators that they used geotracking to locate the girl and that they arrived in time to intervene with any plans she may have had. “Of course, I’m very proud of him, but I really hope that other young people his age might see the story and also be inspired to also take action to help somebody in need just like Gabe did,” Lori said. Fred added, “When he went to bed, I always kiss him and, I’ve been telling him since that day, ‘You’re my little hero.’” Officer Chandler also sent Gabe, who wants…

Huge Fire Tears Through Church…You Won’t Believe Went Unscathed

Firefighters were absolutely shocked when they finally got inside the razed church.

Truly and utterly, there are some time in which the truth is far stranger than any conjured fiction. Here in America, we seem to love these stories and the mysteries behind them.  We’re obsessed with unsolved true crime, the paranormal, and all things hypothetical…including bizarre notions about the ancient Egyptians galavanting around with extraterrestrials. Is this simply escapism run amok?  Perhaps, but we have been drawn to the impossible and improbable throughout the entirety of human history. That is why the story of a church fire in West Virginia is so compelling. Firefighters in West Virginia surveying the damage from an inferno that had gutted a church over the weekend were astounded when they discovered that a bevy of Bibles and crosses had somehow survived the conflagration unscathed. The remarkable find was reportedly made early Sunday morning after the Coal City Fire Department helped to battle a blaze that had engulfed the Freedom Ministries Church in the community of Greenview. Upon entering the building, the team of rescue workers was stunned to see that every Bible inside the church had apparently made it through the harrowing ordeal undamaged. Posting pictures of the amazing sight to Facebook, the department noted that the fire had, at one point, been so hot that they were actually forced to pull personnel from the building for their safety. The temperatures were so extreme, they explained, that everything inside should have been reduced to ashes. Firefighters also remarked that none of the crosses inside the church itself were damaged by fire either, adding to the mystery.
