Word Became Flesh

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14

Word became Flesh, is there any better way to describe Jesus Christ? When did the Word become Flesh? On that day in the manger, when Mary conceived the child sent from God, a son has been given to us. The day when Heaven came down to Earth, to save us from our sins. Jesus is clearly revealed as “The Word”, and “The World” dwelt among us and we didn’t even realize it

How can you question your Heavenly Fathers love for you? He sent his only begotten Son, to become fully human, and live among us. On that day in the manger we have seen the Glory of God. And our Lord and Savior brought with him grace and truth. The grace from God that delivers us from our sins. The grace that could only come from the shedding of his precious blood at the cross.

Jesus became Flesh for you, don’t reject your Messiah. Every knee will bow and tongue will confess Jesus is Lord and Savior, everyone one denies Jesus before others, he will deny to God.  Come to the manger this season and bow to your King in Jesus Name Amen

Glorify God

The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told. Luke 2:20

How do you celebrate Christmas? Do you remember to glorify and praise God? When the shepherds were out in the field that night, they were visited by a whole host of angels to tell them the good news about Christ. If Heaven was so excited about the birth of Jesus, shouldn’t we be also?

There are many people who dread the Christmas season, some even feel depressed. But remember how the Shepherds felt when they first heard the good news about Jesus Christ. They were all excited and rejoicing because God fulfilled all his promises of our Messiah.

If you need something to get excited about , think about the new born King. Think about the hope , joy, and peace he has brought to the world because he came to save the world. The Prince of Peace brings Joy to the world because he is the salvation of God.

Just as the shepherds, we need to be glorifying and praising God for sending his only begotten Son in Jesus Name Amen

Image of God

The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. Colossians 1:15

Jesus is the image of God, the Word that became flesh. Think about it before Jesus came to Earth, nobody knew what God looked like.  Before at the Holy Temple, there was a veil that separated people from God. Only the high priest was permitted to pass beyond that veil (Hebrews 9:7) But when Jesus was born and took the cross all our sins that veil has been torn (Matthew 27)

The birth of Jesus means so many things to us, one thing is it brought us a personal relationship with our Creator and Heavenly Father.  Anyone who has seen Jesus has seen God (John 14:9) Jesus is the image of God, the Nativity story shows us how God works in mysterious ways, he is in complete control.

Jesus is the firstborn over all creation, meaning if you want eternal life it comes through Jesus Christ. He was born of a virgin to take away the sins of the world. Jesus was here before Creation, for by him all things were created (Colossians 1:16) but he lowered himself below the angels to take our sins and eventually taste death.

So rejoice this Christmas season, for Christ was born, Jesus the image of God came here to save you and give you eternal life. Accept this gift of grace and mercy in Jesus Name Amen

The Morning Star

“I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not near. A star will come out of Jacob; a scepter will rise out of Israel. He will crush the foreheads of Moab, the skulls of all the people of Sheth. Numbers 24:17

Jesus is the morning star, (Revelation 22:16) and it was the Star of Bethlehem that led the shepherds and wise men to the new born King. Balaam, another prophet, who confirmed the coming of our Messiah, Jesus Christ, is the reason we celebrate the season.

A scepter , meaning royalty or King, will rise out of Israel. That King, Jesus, was born in a manger in Bethlehem, fulfilling many prophecies and saving us from our sins. Jesus is the King of Kings (Revelation 19:16) there is no one greater, come and worship your King.

The Moabites had enticed the Israelites into sinning and therefor losing Gods protection and caused major deaths. Jesus has overcome sin and death, there fulfilling this as Moab is symbolic of sin and death.

The people of Sheth (Seth) or people of Seth who was the third son of Noah representing all of mankind. Means Jesus, the Messiah , has come to save all of man kind, which he fulfilled this prophecy on the cross. So rejoice this season for our Messiah has come in Jesus Name Amen

Good News!

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Luke 2:10-12

Have you heard the good news? The news of Jesus our Messiah was born to be your Lord and Savior. This is the message the shepherds were being told that night out in the fields. Notice God didn’t rush to tell the Kings and Queens , he told the Shepherds first. Why? Because Jesus came to free the captives, to make the one who was last now be first, to give hope to the hopeless. Jesus came here for the humble and not the proud.

So where is this great King the shepherds wondered? This mighty King is a baby lying in a manger. The angel told them your sign will be a baby wrapped in cloths.   Do you think Kings will bow down to a child? Only those who listed to God, who don’t have a hardened heart. The Shepherds who listened to the word of God found their salvation in a Manger that night. Do you know where your salvation comes from, look for the baby in the manger in Jesus Name Amen

What is CHRISTmas?

One person considers one day more sacred than another; another considers every day alike. Each of them should be fully convinced in their own mind. Whoever regards one day as special does so to the Lord. Whoever eats meat does so to the Lord, for they give thanks to God; and whoever abstains does so to the Lord and gives thanks to God. For none of us lives for ourselves alone, and none of us dies for ourselves alone. If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. Romans 14:5-8

What does Christmas mean to you? There are some Christians who choose to condemn the celebration of Christmas and those who choose to acknowledge it, who is the judge? There are some who point out that Christmas has some pagan roots but others who use this opportunity to acknowledge our Lord and Savior. The more I search for the meaning of Christmas, the more I realize it’s a personal decision just as is our relationship with God. Nobody can be converted to a Christian, it’s a personal relationship with our God, just the same nobody can be told what the true meaning of Christmas is.

We can choose to ignore Christmas and pretend it doesn’t exist, but does that lead people to Christ? To the lost that will never hear a scripture or know a Church, can they benefit from not hearing the gospel of the Nativity? Some who claim its not Biblical to celebrate the birth of Christ need to reread the scriptures. Angels, Shepherds, and Wisemen came to bow down to the new born King and rejoice for its the salvation of the human race.

So me and my family will celebrate Christmas and use it to glorify the name and birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. If you agree or don’t agree, its ok. One day we will all stand before Jesus and give account of our actions. May the peace of God rule your hearts this Christmas Season in the name of the Prince of Peace Amen

Message of Christ

Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. Colossians 3:16

This Christmas Season we can have the message of Christ dwell among us, let everyone know that Jesus, our Messiah, was born of a virgin to save us from our sins. The promised Son of God became Flesh and dwelt among us. It’s

One of my favorite parts of the Christmas Season is the songs, there are so many great songs of worship from Away in The Manger to Silent Night to Joy To The World. When these sing these songs, sing with gratitude in our hearts for everything God has given us, including our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ

 

Christmas is a great time to teach our Children and others of the Nativity story and let your children know they do have a Savior and Hope for the future. If we don’t teach our children, nobody will.  Let the message of Jesus , the King of King, being born dwell among us all in Jesus Name Amen

Arm of God

He has performed mighty deeds with his arm; he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts. Luke 1:51

Who is the arm of God? When Mary received the Good News from the Angel Gabriel that she was chosen to give birth to The Messiah, she Glorified God with her song. The Arm of God is Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God in Flesh

See, the Sovereign LORD comes with power, and he rules with a mighty arm. See, his reward is with him, and his recompense accompanies him. Isaiah 40:10

Isaiah 40 prophesies about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, he is referenced as “The Mighty Arm of God’ among other things. When we understand this analogy, we then begin to understand The Trinity. As Jesus said “I and the Father are One” (John 10:30) He is the extension or branch of God in The Flesh. Jesus said he sits at the right hand of God (Mark 16:19) There is no greater power or authority than the right hand of God

When you understand this, you understand the importance of Jesus Christ coming to the world to save our sins. The Salvation of God sent in the Flesh, The Arm of God extended to the world to save it from our sins. Without our Messiah there is no Salvation, give praise and thanks to our Lord this season in Jesus Name Amen

Scepter Is Born

Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever; a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom. Psalm 45:6

Scepter– royal or imperial power or authority , sovereignty

Remember all power and authority has been given to Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:18) He is the Scepter, this is a prophecy of the coming of our King.

Christmas is a time to remember the birth of our Scepter, Jesus Christ. The Son of the Living God delivered to us to establish Gods kingdom that will last forever. There will be no end to the reign of Jesus Christ. His throne has been established on that day in the manger.

Jesus is the King of Kings and Lord and Lords (Revelation 19:16) Its time to rejoice and give thanks for your new born King. The King that has overcome the world, The King that was willing to lay down his life for us.

Is Jesus the King of your Kingdom? Have you accepted Christ as your Lord and Savior? This Christmas season get the gift of life, the gift that is eternal and will never fade away. By the power of the Blood of Christ, we are victorious! The throne of God has been established in Jesus Name Amen!
