Call Him Jesus

You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.” Luke 1:31-33

What happened that night in the manger, when God delivered his promise to the world and sent his only begotten Son to deliver us. He is the son of The Most High God. Think about that, the son of the Creator of the Heavens and Earth, sent here to be our Messiah.  Is there any other greater redemption story, than the story of Christs birth at the manger?

And all power and authority has been handed over to Jesus (Matthew 28:18) and he sits on the throne today in Heaven as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. But first he came to this world to not be served but to serve us. (Matthew 20:28) He served us peace, hope, joy, love, and most importantly eternal life.

Gods kingdom will never end, and the road to our redemption started at the manger in Bethlehem. Born of a virgin, he overcame the world. Jesus delivered us from the bondages of sin and death, Glory to God in the highest in Jesus Name Amen

star

Follow The Star

When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Matthew 2:10-11

The Star of Bethlehem led the wise man to find the newborn King, Jesus Christ. What has led you to Christ? If you’re unsure, just like the wise men, why don’t you search the prophesies of the Messiah? When the wisemen set off for a journey of about 1,000 miles, it took them almost 2 years to complete.

The wise men weren’t sure what they were going to find, they did know that the Messiah was to be born in Bethlehem,  and God sent a prophetic sign of the Star, to guide the wise men in finding the King of Kings. Is God sending you a sign today? Come search for your Messiah!

What is the significance of the gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh? These gifts were given to only royalty as it showed the deity of Jesus Christ.

Gold- For obvious reasons, since Jesus was the King of Kings, he was presented with what is still the most valuable commodity on Earth. Gold was always is still is very valuable and a strong representation of Jesus stature

Frankincense-  Another symbol of Jesus deity, as Frankincense was burned routinely in the Temple of God , as it was required by God during worship (Leviticus 2:16)

Myrrh-  a holy anointing oil, yet again another sign of Jesus deity, that he is The Son of God and truly the Messiah.

It’s also notable that Frankincense and Myrrh had a lot of health and healing benefits, even still today they are used.  So what gifts are you offering to your King? God is sending you a sign today, its time to come to the manger and find your Lord and Savior in Jesus Name Amen

bethelehem

Out of Bethlehem

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

God works in mysterious ways. 700 years before Christ was born in a manger in Bethlehem, a prophet named Micah foretold about the coming Messiah. When people heard this prophecy there were probably rejoicing and celebrating, for God has saved them from the oppression of the world.

However, the coming of our King, didn’t happen the way we would all imagine the King of Kings entering the world. He was born of a virgin, who was to be put to death because nobody believed her story. He was carried on a donkey over 70 miles in Mary’s womb making the treacherous journey to Bethlehem.

At the time Mary and Joseph probably thought traveling to Bethlehem was the worst scenario that could have happened, but what they didn’t know was they were fulfilling Gods plan for the world. For our Messiah was to come from Bethlehem, and he did in a lowly manger.

Whatever you think Christmas is about, know this story it begins in the manger in Bethlehem where God sent his son to save the world. Remember this story and the prophecies fulfilled in Jesus Name Amen

the-one

Where Is The One?

and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.” Matthew 2:2

Are you searching for the King of Kings? If your searching for your Lord and Savior, look no further than the manger. That’s where it all began, when God sent his only begotten Son down to Earth to save us from our sins. The question is are you searching? As Jesus said “Seek and you will find” (Matthew 7:7) This season seek for your Messiah, knock and the door will be opened (Matthew 7:7)

And when the wise men found Jesus, they worshiped him. Are you worshiping God today in Truth and Spirit? Don’t be ashamed on your Lord and Savior, as Jesus said anyone who is not ashamed of him , he won’t be ashamed of you before God (Mark 8:38)

This season Seek your Savior, find your only salvation from the King of Kings, Jesus Christ. The greatest present was already given to you, before you were even born. It’s the hope, grace, mercy, and peace that can only be found through Jesus Christ. Come worship at the manger this season in Jesus Name Amen

immanuel

Immanuel

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel. Isaiah 7:14

God sent us a sign, what is the sign that the birth of Jesus Christ has given us? The sign of Christ is of hope, peace, and victory. Through a lowly baby in the manger, God has defeated Satan. A King given to us in a manger, who would have ever predicted this? But God told us this would happen 700 years before it did, and he fulfilled his promise.

The Son of God could only come through a Virgin because he is holy. Our Lord never sinned yet he came to die for our sins. He is the only one who could save us because we are not able to save ourselves. The only begotten Son of God was delivered to us , there is the sign from God for redemption.

Immanuel means God is with us, even though the world didn’t recognize or receive him. God is with us, through his Son, and through his Spirit. We can rejoice this season because God has sent us a sign, that we have salvation in Jesus Name Amen

child-is-born

Child is Born

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

Who is this child prophesied about in the Bible? It’s the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who was foretold about 700 years before Jesus came to Earth.  In fact, if you study the Old Testament the coming of Yeshua (Jesus) was prophesied throughout it. So let’s remember and rejoice that God has sent his only begotten Son to save us from our sins.

Jesus is many things to us, our Lord, our Savior, our Wonderful Counselor, our Mighty God, our Everlasting Father, and importantly our Prince of Peace. Without Christ as the center of your life, you can’t have peace. You can’t buy it or drink it or smoke it, it can only be obtained by The Holy Spirit of God.

We have peace knowing that we are redeemed and forgiven. We have peace knowing that by the blood of Christ, we are Children of God. We can have peace knowing that we worship the God of The Living and not of the dead. So let the peace of Christ rule your hearts this season and glorify his name in Jesus Name Amen

savior

Our Savior

She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” Matthew 1:21

God has a plan for the world and his name is Jesus. Since the beginning we have all fallen short to the glory of God, we have all become sinners. And the wages of sin equal death, however because God so loved the world that he sent his only begotten Son to save the world from our sins.

His Hebrew name is Yeshua which means “Salvation of Yahweh) which means God saved us through his son Jesus, who became the sacrificial Lamb to take the punishment for your sins. Through the birth of Jesus Christ, we can have hope and victory, because he has overcome the world

As we celebrate this Christmas Season let’s focus on the reason.  Its not about the presents and cookies, it about the lowly baby in the manger who is the King of the World, our Lord and Savior who is the manifestation of God in the flesh. Holy is his name, he is worthy to be  praised in Jesus Name Amen

give-thanks

Give Thanks

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus 1 Thessalonians 5:18

During Thanksgiving we ponder what we are thankful for, we recognize the blessings that God has given us. But the truth is we should treat every like Thanksgiving. Everyday is a gift from God, nothing should be taken for granted. If you wake up in the morning with breathe in your body, you should be thankful. However we have a tendency to become complacent. We take for granted everything that God has already given us and were not thankful anymore. We need to live each day like it’s a new day with a new beginning. Thank God everyday for your spouse, your children, your family, your job, your home. Don’t take a single blessing for granted.

Remember the victories that God has already won for you in the past, celebrate these and give glory to God. Don’t forget what your Father has already provided for you, because it pleases him to give you more. Most importantly we need to remember that there are many who suffer, your blessings may seem small to you but to others they would give anything to be in your place. Give Thank to God in all your circumstances , good or bad, because we are blessed and victorious in Jesus Name Amen

happy-thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. Psalm 100:4

Will you enter today with “Thanksgiving” towards God? While we reflect on the things we are thankful for today, let’s remember to Thank our Heavenly Father! This is the day The Lord has made, let us be glad and rejoice in it (Psalm 118:24)

We have so much to be Thankful for a lot of times we overlook the small victories in our life. Let’s first remember that we are here for a purpose, God has a plan for our lives. He made us in his image, breathed life into our bodies. Be Thankful God has put you here to fulfill your destiny!

Thank God for our Lord Jesus Christ, who laid down his life for us all to save us from our sins. We can be Thankful and hopeful today because we have victory through Christ! Our Father showed his grace and mercy towards us because he loves us like a Father

Lets be Thankful for everything God provides for us including our spouses, our children, our family, our home. Everything we have we give Thanks to The Lord, so today Enter his Gates with Thanksgiving because our God is an awesome God in Jesus Name Amen

lion-of-judah

Lion of Judah

Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.” Revelation 5:5

We have Victory through Jesus Christ, he is The Lion of Judah and the Root of David that has been prophesied throughout the Bible. He is the only one worthy to open the Book of Life because we have been redeemed by his blood.

The Lion of Judah was prophesied since Genesis

You are a lion’s cub, Judah; you return from the prey, my son. Like a lion he crouches and lies down, like a lioness–who dares to rouse him? (Genesis 49:9)

The scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until he to whom it belongs shall come and the obedience of the nations shall be his. (Genesis 49:10)

Who dares to wage war with the Lion of Judah? We know the Dragon (Satan) and his followers are foolish enough to and will be destroyed into the Lake of Fire (Revelation 20:10) The King of Kings will not depart from Judah, he will rule over all the nations and governments (Isaiah 9:7)

So do not weep Children of God, rejoice for your King , The Lion of Judah is victorious , fighting our battles and will sit on the throne forever in Jesus Name Amen
