Abuja-based pastor, Joshua Iginla, has paid a visit to the manger where Jesus Christ was wrapped and kept after delivery, and has also shared the photos.
The Senior Pastor of Champions Royal Assembly, Prophet Joshua Iginla, has taken to his Facebook page to share photos of his visit to Bethlehem, the birth place of Jesus Christ, the son of God.
Here’s what he captioned the photos;
MANGER, THE HOME OF NATIVITY.
“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times” (Micah 5:2). This prophecy was fulfilled when Jesus’ earthly parents, Mary and Joseph, were called to Bethlehem for a census of the entire Roman territory (Luke 2:1–5). While they were in Bethlehem, the time came for Jesus to be born (Luke 2:6).
After He was delivered, Mary His mother wrapped Him in cloths and laid Him in a manger (Luke 2:7). Later that same night, shepherds from nearby fields found Him just as the angels told them they would (Luke 2:10–12).
Instead of coming to earth as a pampered, privileged ruler, Jesus was born in meekness, as one of us. He is approachable, accessible, available—no palace gates bar the way to Him; no ring of guards prevents our approach.
