PostSubject: Candy Maker's Witness Attempt   Fri Nov 20, 2009 11:40 pm

This is the story of the Candy Cane, I am sure their are several versions of it so if the one you know is different post it.

Long ago a candy maker wanted to make a candy to witness to people about the love of Christ. So he incorpated various symbols for the Birth, Ministry, and Death of Jesus Christ.

First he used a pure white stick of hard candy, white to symbolize perfection and the sinless nature that Christ was born with from the virgin birth. He wanted a hard candy to symbolize the hard solid foundation of the Church and firm promises of God's Love. The Candy Maker wanted to use a J to symbolize the name of Jesus, the name above all names. The one who came as a shepard of men so the J could also be seen as the staff of God's righteousness, since also Christ came to led all people who like sheep had gone astray back to the fold of God.

Noticing his Candy had a plain sort of look he decided to stain the candy red, first he used three small stripes to be a reminder of the souring that the Lord took for us all, knowing that it is only by his stripes that we are healed. the larger red stripe was to symbolize the blood that Christ shed on the cross for all of mankind so all he beleive and call on his name could have ever lasting life.

Something along the way and over the course of time went terrible wrong the this master candysmiths creation became know as the "Candy Cane"- a meaningless decoration seen at the hoilday time as just another tree ornment.

The meaning is still there however For those who have eyes to see and ears to hear. I Pray and ask that you pray as well that these powerful symbols will once again be used to witness to a lost, hurt, and dying world. Share with Children especially the power of God's Love!

Remember the best gift is the give.
