The GREATEST GIFT That Was Ever Given – His Name Is Jesus


Over 2,000 years ago God sent His Son into the world that we might be saved and not condemned. On the profession of our FAITH we are accepted into His Family and become children of God. The Child in the manger has been recognized as TheTraditional Christmas scene down through the ages. It is much more than a tradition it is a True story! As you Celebrate CHRISTMAS with your family, friends and loved ones with your plethora of family Traditions; I would like to take a few minutes to share “The Chronicle of Our Lord and Savior!”

“FOR unto us a CHILD is born, unto us a SON is given: and the government shall be upon HIS shoulder: and HIS name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9

“Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin name was Mary. And having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice highly favored one, the Lord is with you; BLESSED are you among women!” But when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this was. Then the angel said to her. “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name JESUS. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His Father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob FOREVER. And of His kingdom there will be no end…….

And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This census first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria. So all went to be registered, everyone to his own city. Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David. Which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to registered with Mary his betrothed wife, who was with child. So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

Now there was in the same country shepherds out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, and angel of the Lord said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of GREAT JOY which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is CHRIST the LORD. And this will be the sign to you : You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths in a manger. And suddenly there was an angel a multitude of the heavenly host PRAISING GOD and saying; GLORY to God in the highest, And on earth PEACE , GOODWILL toward men!

So it was when the angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another, “Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us. And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger. Now when then they had seen Him, they made widely known the saying which was told them concerning the child. And all those who heard it marveled at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart. Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and PRAISING GOD for ALL the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told to them.

And when eight days were completed for the circumcision of the Child, His name was called JESUS, the name given by the angel before He was conceived in the womb…

This is the greatest event that ever happened in the history of the world! So much so that a choir of Angels sang and the sky was lit with a brilliant STAR! “JESUS is the Bright and Morning Star” He wants to Light your heart and give you purpose and meaning in your life! CHRISTMAS IS WHEN WE CELEBRATE “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” TO JESUS! Jesus lived an amazing sinless life to conquer sin in the flesh for us! So we would not be condemned but saved. He was crucified a shameful death on the CROSS, died for us and then after three days in the grave HE arose victoriously with ALL POWER! When you accept Him into your heart you become God’s child and The COMFORTER His precious HOLY SPIRIT comes to live within your heart and your body becomes a Temple! You are then given the gift of ETERNAL LIFE!!! Jesus then becomes your Messiah, Savior and Lord! Jesus is the GREATEST GIFT that was ever given! JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON! JESUS is the reason for every season. He is your reason for living in Him you will find the true meaning of life! Have a wonderfully, MARVELOUSLY Blessed MERRY CHRISTMAS and a JOYFULLY Blessed NEW YEAR!!! “GLORY TO GOD in the HIGHEST and on earth PEACE to men on whom HIS FAVOR rests….” (St. Luke }

JESUS = Jesus Enjoys Saving Us

JESUS = Jesus Enjoys Saving  US!

 

 

Christ Jesus and John the Baptist

Did you know that John wrote the book of John so that you would believe that “Jesus is the Christ!” The book of Luke starts out expounding on the joyful events that surrounded the birth of Jesus. Luke also tells us how Elizabeth’s unborn baby who was John the Baptist leaped in her womb. This took place at Elizabeth’s home when she was greeted by Mary while she was pregnant with Jesus. The Bible says; “ Elizabeth was immediately filled with the Holy Spirit.” Elizabeth told Mary. “Blessed are you among women and the child that you bear…..” many others shared in her joy. 

 

The Ascension of Christ Jesus! 

God the Father openly expresses how He was well pleased with Jesus! When Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist, heaven opened and the Spirit of God descended upon Him in the form of a dove. Jesus’ birth, life, crucifixion, death and resurrection was all for us! This is why we can have fellowship with His Holy Spirit. Do you know that Jesus wants to be the joy of your strength? Jesus Enjoyed Saving us! Do you know what joy means? It means to have a sense of well-being and gladness.

 

Jesus endured many unpleasant experiences. Between the time of Jesus’ earthly birth and His crucifixion many events took place. Jesus was raised in Nazareth. Nazareth was thought of as a place where nothing good could come out of. But, the Bible says “the child grew and became strong; He was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was upon Him.” It says that Jesus was obedient to His earthly parents. He was also obedient to His Heavenly Father. In spite of all the things that were going on around Jesus the presence of the Lord’s joy surrounded Him. Our Joy in Jesus is not contingent on someone or what’s going on around us. When you truly know Him as your Savior and Lord you too can experience unspeakable joy!

 

Luke ends describing  Jesus Christ’s beautiful  Ascension.  Gloriously rising into Heaven “He lifted up His hands and blessed” His disciples! The Bible says that they worshipped Him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy.  In spite of what was going on about Jesus the presence of God’s joy was always  with Him.

 

 

The Joy of the Lord allows you to soar above the noise of the world!

Joy and Music are two wonderful gifts from God. We are able to express our inner feelings through them. Jesus did not die for us to live life unhappy, discontented and in bondage to sin. My wise Mother always told me “do not let people stop you from being who you are; because of who they are.” God really does have a better way for us to live. Jesus does not want you to have a yoyo existence. He wants you to have a consistent life.

 

GOD’S joy will give you the melodic ability to soar like an eagle above suffering, covetousness, jealousy, false accusations and mistreatment. Did you know that eagles are committed to their mate for life? Have you ever noticed how they can sit contently on a rock? While seemingly idle they are being internally refreshed and strengthened. Did you know that Jesus is a solid Rock? Nehemiah tells us, Jesus wants to be the joy of your strength. He wants His true believers to live out their faith and daily life in the presence of God.

 

Joy in Jesus will give you the ability to “Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”    Galatians 5 Jesus yoke is easy and His burdens are light. He even tells us if you are even insulted because of His name, that you are blessed! That the Spirit of God will rest upon you! God is so awesome! He is truly worthy of our praise!

 

Do you know what happens when Jesus is really not the center of your Joy? Do you know what happens when you do not really worship Him in Spirit and in Truth? You cannot manipulate or orchestrate the Spirit of the Lord! Have you ever wondered why things turn out the way they do sometimes? Revelations 3 says; “What He opens no one can shut, and what He shuts no one can open.” He also says, “I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my Word and have not denied my name…”

 

 

There is VICTORY in CHRIST  JESUS! 

Did you know that when you are obedient to God He will take care of those who oppose you?  That is if we are standing upon HIS TRUTH!  You can not curse what God has blessed! Halllelllujah Jesus!!!  You do not have to hem, haw and fight with anyone. But you do have to STAND upon  GOD’S WORD!  It is very important to keep in mind that absolutely nothing gets by God.

 

It is a reality that in life you will always be faced with some type of trouble.  We live in a Spiritual Warzone.  But the battle is not ours.  Keep  yourself adorned daily  in your Spiritual Armor. “Draw nigh to GOD and HE will draw nigh to you!”

 

Just know God will use any trouble or trial  to strengthen your character, faith and trust in Him! By remaining focused you can still experience His Joy.   However you must  actually BELIEVE,  TRUST & exercise YOUR FAITH in  GOD!   “But without Faith it is impossible to please  HIM;  For  he that cometh to GOD must believe  that HE is, and that HE is a rewarder of them that diligently seek HIM!”   Hebrews  11

 

You can have joy knowing the Lord in His time will reward you  and reward everyone  else for what they do.  With GOD’S help we can overcome evil WITH GOOD! Whether it is good or evil HE knows…   We serve an omniscient God! Isaiah 61 even says that God will give you “The oil of joy for mourning. The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. That they may be called trees of righteousness ….. Everlasting Joy shall be theirs!”

 

Do you really know who Jesus is? Do you really want to be made whole? Do you really want to experience His Joy? Begin seriously getting to know Jesus for yourself!  Spend time with the LORD in HIS WORD! Ask Him to give you today and every day, daily bread from heaven. Begin to put your trust and hope in God and not man.

 

The JOY  of the LORD is your strength!

“There is no greater Joy than to know that His children are walking in truth!” III John 1.   GOD knows when we are really walking in truth!   Commit to  begin to walk in Truth!  You will be able to experience God’s Joy regardless as to what is going on in the world.  Don’t follow after the masses. Follow Christ Jesus!   Remember He spoke everything into existence in Heaven and in earth.   He came to the earth and overcame sin, death and the grave so we could live better lives.  He rose from the grave with ALL POWER! 

 

Don’t compromise what  you is know is right  regardless as to what someone else says or does… The truth really does set you free! When Jesus returned to the Father He left His disciples with these words; “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father’s commands and remain in love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete………” God really does have a better way for us to live.

GOD really does have a better way for us to live.
ABBA FATHER, THANK YOU FOR MAKING US COMPLETE IN YOU! CONTINUOUSLY GROWING EACH DAY IN YOUR GRACE, LOVE WISDOM & UNDERSTANDING…

Here is a little something I discovered while praising the Lord. Did you know that JESUS name has an acronym to remember, meaning?

Do you know Jesus really is coming back?   JESUS IS COMING BACK FOR HIS CHURCH!   Sincerely ask Him into your heart today.  Truly  having the LORD within your life will make all the difference in the world.  Jesus wants to walk with you each and everyday.

 

JESUS is able to  present you faultless.  HE CAME TO EARTH TO SAVE US! “Now unto HIM THAT IS ABLE TO KEEP YOU from falling and to present you before HIS glorious presence without fault and with great joy!”   Jude   Praise God!  &  Thank You Lord!  Begin to  live each day; ” TO GOD BE HE GLORY! ”
