Our Never Ending Celebration
It has been so long since I had something exciting to write to you my friends, but as we approach Christmas day my heart is filled with the joy and excitement of the reality of the plan of redemption conceived in the heart of God and covenanted between God and Jesus. An everlasting covenant.
God's plan was so ingenious that none of the principalities and rulers knew or they would not have crucified the Lord of Glory (I Cor 2:8) Who would expect Almighty God to descend from heaven as a Seed and impregnate a young virgin? Who would think to look for Him in an animal stall, lying in a manger, wrapped in swaddling cloths? Who would anticipate His birth to be among the lowly,announced to shepherds in the field? No one! God confounds the wise with what seems foolish to man, but it is the Wisdom of God.
That starry night, the Hosts of Green Berets, and Navy Seals of heaven with the Heavenly Knighthood came to declare that the Christ, the Commander in Chief, was born and on earth, God's peace toward all men. Meaning, God is not mad, He has sent a Redeemer to rescue us. His entrance was quiet, but the plan of God was anything but quiet. His plan was to shake everything up. A new Ruler had come.
Now as the whole world is preparing to celebrate something many of them don't realize the significance of, I smile within my heart, knowing. Knowing that He came for me. Knowing He was not willing to be without me and that He called me by name. Knowing that the celebration is not for just one day, but for all of eternity. For one day, even non believers will have to curtail their normal routine because of His celebration. The days moving forward will not mean much to many, until they hear the story and have their hearts awaken to the love song of Jesus. He smiles and says, Come away, my beloved, I have prepared a place for you.
So grace and peace has descended upon us and brought Good News! Christ the Savior is born! Let all the earth bow before Him! Worship Him! Hallelujah!
