And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” And He said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.” Revelation 21:5

As we head into the New Year, people are always looking to make themselves new again. People are looking to lose weight, or go back to school, or get a new job, the New Years is always about starting New again.

The Bible is really about making all things New again also!

Jesus says in Revelation Hes Making ALL THINGS NEW. Not just some things or some people, hes making ALL THINGS NEW. Jesus talked about making a New Heavens and Earth, eliminating pain, suffering, and death. And most importantly Jesus talked about throughout the gospels about Making Us New!

A lot of people stress out about the conditions of our planet, and about endangered species, people stress out about the glaciers are melting, guess what “Its going to be all OK”, God has got this, hes in complete control and hes going to make our Earth New again!

People are stressed out about there health, people are getting procedures and makeup to make themselves look younger, people are continually trying to restore their youth. Guess what, its going to be OK, God is making ALL Things New including You!

For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; And the former things will not be remembered or come to mind. Isaiah 65:17

The prophet Isaiah writes when the New Heaven and Earth is established, the Former Things Will Not Be Remembered. Meaning your past may have been a disaster but in Gods eyes its ancient history, it doesn’t exist anymore.

Maybe you have memories or thoughts that are haunting you from your past, God says the former things will no longer be remembered! God is making ALL THINGS NEW including You, believe in Jesus Christ, and become transformed Amen!

The Weeping Prophet

Why did I ever come forth from the womb To look on trouble and sorrow, So that my days have been spent in shame? Jeremiah 20:18

Jeremiah is known as the “weeping prophet” for good reason. He didn’t have an easy and luxurious life as a prophet, so much for prosperity gospel. In fact a high priest , Pashhur, had Jeremiah beaten and thrown in jail because he didn’t like what Jeremiah was saying (Jeremiah 20: 1-6)

People don’t like to hear the truth. People especially don’t like to hear the Word of God because it deals with our morality. Notice Pashhur is supposed to be a priest for God, yet he rejects the very words from God spoken through Jeremiah

O LORD, You have deceived me and I was deceived; You have overcome me and prevailed. I have become a laughingstock all day long; Everyone mocks me. Jeremiah 20:7

This has obviously taken its toll on Jeremiah. Everywhere Jeremiah goes to preach the Word of God, everyone mocks and laughs at him. His own family disowned him. Some of us might understand what Jeremiah is going through?

Often when we try to preach the Word of God, we find mockers and scoffers. Why? Because people have hardened their hearts to truth. People love their sin, they want to live in their sin, and they don’t want to hear anything about God

Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. Matthew 16:24

Jesus said for his true disciples to “Take up their Cross and follow him”, Jeremiah bore his cross of humiliation and persecution. We must also do the same, we must not be afraid to risk it all, to speak the truth about God Amen!


Jesus answered, “You would have no authority over Me, unless it had been given you from above; for this reason he who delivered Me to you has the greater sin.” John 19:11

Pontius Pilate believed he ruled the world. He believe he had total power and authority over everyone and everything, including Jesus. However Pilate was just as misled as many people are today.

People today still mock Jesus, they still curse his name. They falsely believe that they are free and have power over their lives. However just as Pilate came to realize, we all will one day. We are slaves to sin and death without Jesus Christ. The only one who can set your free , we put to death because of our wickedness

But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar. John 19:15

After Pilate spent some time with Jesus , he realized Jesus is the Son of God. Pilate wanted to release him, he even washed his hands of his death. However the influence from the masses was greater than his heart for God.

Even today the world is still trying to crucify Christ. All the immorality and evil of this world, is the same as screaming for the blood of Christ. People living in lawlessness have no King but Satan.

When I saw Him, I fell at His feet like a dead man. And He placed His right hand on me, saying, “Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last,and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades.  Revelation 1:17-18

The world thought by killing Jesus all there morality issues would disappear. But nobody has authority over Christ, Jesus layed down his life to pay the debts of his people. Now he’s alive forevermore and coming back soon! Are you ready? Who is your King? Who is your Lord?

The Potter

Can I not, O house of Israel, deal with you as this potter does?” declares the LORD. “Behold, like the clay in the potter’s hand, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel. Jeremiah 18:6

Throughout The Bible , God speaks about us being his clay and he is our Potter. However we live in a world who rejects the Potter. We as the clay, believe we have superior knowledge , to the one who created us. It seems foolish when you analyze it with this analogy, however this is exactly how humanity has become

Imagine if you allowed , the Potter, to mold you into what he had intended from the beginning? Could the outcome of your life have been better? However we are rebellious and stubborn people, we want control, we want pleasure, regardless of the consequences.

“But they will say, ‘It’s hopeless! For we are going to follow our own plans, and each of us will act according to the stubbornness of his evil heart.’ Jeremiah 18:12

Instead of following your Creator, you follow your own plans blindly. Why? Because you want to be your own god, regardless of the consequences. However destruction and death are near, but you don’t care, as long as you are calling the shots!

On the contrary, who are you, O man, who answers back to God? The thing molded will not say to the molder, “Why did you make me like this,” will it? Romans 9:20

It seems ridiculous the creation would argue back with the Creator, but that is what we do! How foolish are we, do you have to wonder why our world is such a disaster? Listen to your Creator, allow him to mold you into what you were designed to be.

You cant save yourself, we can only be saved by the Savior Jesus Christ!

Peace of Christ

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful. Colossians 3:15

Peace, how can we have peace in a chaotic and sinful world? How can we have peace will all the pain and suffering, all the violence and wars? Its simple, let Christ rule your heart! Sounds like a simple solution, so why doesn’t anyone do it? Why doesn’t anyone submit to Jesus and let the peace which is beyond human comprehension rule their hearts?

For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

One of Jesus many titles is Prince of Peace, many reject Jesus because they will say “I don’t see world peace, therefor he is not the Messiah”  The Peace needs to be inside Your heart! You cant control the world but you can control yourself. Live in peace knowing your separation from God has been reconciled. Through Christ you can be a Child of God!

Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.” Luke 2:14

When the Angels declared the birth of the Messiah Jesus, they told the shepherds now there is Peace on Earth. Why? Because until this point, there was no way to the Father. There was a Great Veil that separated Us from God because of our sins.

But on this day, Jesus provided a way to bring God and his people back together. Jesus provided a way to bring us salvation which it the Good News (Gospel).

So this Christmas, let Christ rule your heart, accept the greatest gift ever given which is Jesus Christ Amen!
