Christmas- John 1-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

Christmas- Micah 5-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.

A couple of things about this prophecy are amazing when you understand, first the accuracy of the prophecy, as we know Israel was eventually divided into two kingdoms, Israel and Judah, so there was actually two Bethlehem’s eventually. The fact that the prophet Micah , not only told the correct city of Jesus birth, but also the correct Bethlehem of Ephrath, its amazing

Secondly the city of Bethlehem’s main industry was the breeding of the Passover Lambs. As we know Jesus is The Lamb of God (John 1:29) our Passover Lamb (1 Corinthians 5:7) so it makes perfect sense , Jesus would be born in Bethlehem , the city of the Passover Lamb, born in a manger as the Lamb of God

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

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!

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

God Demonstrated Love

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8

How do you know someone loves you? Can love be shown without action? Many people who don’t know God would like to paint him as an angry and wrathful God. But when we understand what God, our Heavenly Father, has done for us already. We then understand that God does so love the world that he gave his only begotten Son (John 3:16) to free us from our bondages of sin and death

See even though we were rebellious, unholy, wicked, and disobedient. God granted you grace and mercy through Jesus Christ. Did we deserve grace and mercy? No but God’s love was demonstrated for us on the cross, Jesus tasted death for the punishment of our sins, not his.

There is no greater story of love and mercy than through Jesus Christ. Now don’t be misled, because of sin we still live in a broken world. There will still be pain and suffering. However, we can have peace and hope knowing that through Christ we will overcome death. Because our Lord has risen we will rise also and have eternal life in our Fathers Kingdom.

There is no love without action. Just as a man who loves a woman, demonstrates that love with the covenant of marriage. God has demonstrated his love to us through the covenant of his son Jesus Christ Amen!

Hedge of God

“Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land. Job 1:10

When we read the book of Job we learn many things about the battle between Satan and God. We also learn that God had put a “hedge” of protection around Job and his family because he was blessed by God. When we stay loyal and obedient to God he will bless you and your family also and put a “hedge” around them.

Hedge- also translated as “Wall”- is a surround or border put around something

God was bragging to Satan how proud he was of Job, because he was a righteous man. But Satan complained to God that he couldn’t get to Job because of the “hedge” of protection around him and his family. God then allowed the “hedge” to be lifted for Satan to test Job.

So if you really want to bless your family and yourself, get in agreement with God. Have your family covered by the blood of Jesus Christ (Luke 22:20) There is no power greater than “The Great I AM” If you truly cared about your family, you would put the “Hedge” of God around them in Jesus Name Amen

Road to Heaven

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6

Are there many roads to Heaven? Many false teachers and religions teach there are multiple paths to Heaven and God. They teach that God is manifested in different forms and all religions lead to the same God. These teachings contradict The Bible and go against everything Jesus has taught us. Jesus made it very clear he is the only way to God and Heaven.

So why is Jesus the only way? The reason is we have a sin problem; in the beginning we were created perfect. Then Satan entered sin into the world through Adam and Eve, and corrupted the entire human race. Since the wages of sin are death, we are now slaves to sin and death. For are all sinners and have fallen short to the Glory of God.

But God had a redemption plan, since he loves us and his mercy endures forever, he sent his only Son to be the atonement for our sins. Jesus took on our sins and the sins of the world, so that we may have eternal life. Jesus is the only one who can do this for us, since he is perfect and the only Son of God. No one else can forgive you of your sins.

After 3 days Jesus rose from the dead and lives forevermore. He holds the keys to death and hell. Jesus now sits at the right hand of God with all power and authority. He defeated death, sin, and hell on the cross for you and I.

If you would like to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior say this prayer:

Heavenly Father,

Forgive me of my sins, I accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior, fill me with your Holy Spirit in Jesus Name Amen

Poured Out

“‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.  Acts 2:17-18

Are you filled with The Holy Spirit? The prophet Joel foretold about the coming of The Holy Spirit 800 years before the day of Pentecost. The day of Pentecost was the great day promised by Jesus, that God would send his Holy Spirit and pour it out upon everyone (Acts 1:4)

But make no mistake about it, the Holy Spirit is still with us today and God wants to pour him upon you. As the prophecy is foretold, the Holy Spirit is not limited to anyone, men and women, young and old. If you receive Christ as your Lord and Savior you will be baptized by the Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:11)

Jesus taught us about the Holy Spirit as the comforter, the advocate, and helper. (John 14:16) Paul teaches us about the gifts (wisdom, knowledge,faith,healing,miracles, distinguish Spirits, prophecy,tounges)   of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians) and the fruits (love, joy,peace,patience,kindness,goodness,faithfulness, gentleness, and self control) of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22) God wants to fill you up with the Holy Spirit, are you willing to receive him?

Don’t fight the good fight unequipped. We are fighting a Spiritual Warfare and Satan is looking to devour us like a Lion. But we have the same power that rose Christ from the dead living inside of us (Romans 8:11) let God fill you up with his power in Jesus Name Amen

Present Suffering

I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. Romans 8:18

How can we remain at peace during our present suffering? As Christians we need to be realistic that there is going to be trials and suffering during life. Jesus told us we will encounter trouble, trials, and even tribulation, however he ended by saying take Heart I have overcome the world (John 16:33)

See even when we are suffering we can have the peace of God knowing that we are already victorious. Not matter what Satan is trying to do to us, Jesus have already overcome. There is nothing impossible for God, and we need to remember not to let a trial derail our faith.

The next part is our current suffering can’t compare to the glory of God that is ahead of us. Jesus told us there will be a day of no more tears, no more suffering, no more death for the former things have passed away (Revelation 21:4)  So don’t allow your current suffering or trials defeat you because Jesus has already defeated death and sin

God teaches us to be content in all circumstances (Philippians 4:12) When we have strong faith we don’t have a wavering attitude. It’s easy to be joyful when everything is going good but it’s how you respond to suffering and trials that truly displays your faith. So whatever you’re going through today, tell Satan my present suffering can’t compare to the glory of God in my future in Jesus Name Amen

Released from The Law?

For example, by law a married woman is bound to her husband as long as he is alive, but if her husband dies, she is released from the law that binds her to him. Romans 7:2

Are we still under the law? This is a popular question that has many Christians divided. First question is what is the law? The Law is the Torah, the first five books (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy) of the Bible that were handed down by God to Moses. These books contain the laws of God and defines what sin is. Without these books we could never know what sin even is, among other things.

Paul gives us an example, if a woman’s husband dies, she could then remarry because she is no longer under the law of marriage because of his death. The same is with Christians, if you truly accepted Jesus as your savior, then your old self has died (Romans 6:6) and you can’t be under the law. Anyone who has not accepted Christ is still bound under the law, which the wages of sin is death.

Now knowing this, if you live by the Spirit let us walk by the Spirit (Galatians 5:25) Meaning if you’re truly a servant of Christ, then you must live a holy life. You can’t walk with God and hold hands with the devil. God knows your heart and mind, and if you truly accept Jesus as your Savior, then you are circumcised at the heart (Romans 2:29)

Jesus didn’t come to abolish the law or the prophets but fulfill them (Matthew 5:17) The Law of God or Torah is still Gods standard, as he does not change (Malachi 3:6) However it is we that must change becoming transformed through Christ. Jesus tasted death so we didn’t have to (Hebrews 2:9) Live for Christ and Live forever in Jesus Name Amen
