Christmas Is Not just A Day

Shining brightly in the silent night, the great star of Bethlehem alerted the astrologists to Jesus birth and His location. He was a light in the darkness.


Christmas comes near the end of the year, and this year it seems to have extra significance. For me it portends to open a door in time when God will make Himself more known to the world.



Partially open door releases rays of light, and I creep up to the portal and glance inside. From whence comes this gleaming? A glow seems to emanate from the man who stands gently speaking to a sparsely filled room; Only a few people sit, but each listens with rapt attention. Eyes appear to catch the shine with more than just blank reflection; it appears to climb from deep inside. What is this? Truth is being revealed.

 

1 John 1:7

But if we [really] walk in the Light [that is, live each and every day in conformity with the precepts of God], as He Himself is in the Light, we have [true, unbroken] fellowship with one another [He with us, and we with Him], and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin [by erasing the stain of sin, keeping us cleansed from sin in all its forms and manifestations].


As the Christmas lights fill the night with color, my little one shouts, “Oh look Daddy! It’s so beautiful!” One house is amazing with thousands of lights outlining shapes in the night. It is a special house and she loves it. I’ve heard this is the last year they will be able to decorate it as they are moving. We shall all miss it. It has almost become a tradition to stop by this home during the season. Picture ~created by lights; it’s symbolic of Christ who is our light casting out the evil and bringing the light of love and goodness to the world.



Oh the miracle of God’s plan! Man got the sin nature of satan at birth, but accepting Jesus sacrificial gift to us cleanses us of sin and we are reborn with God’s nature and it all happens through the shed blood of Jesus! Choose to believe it or not. It is truth, and Jesus gift of new life can make earthly life better and guarantee a life of joy, love, wonders, excitement and peace for all eternity.


What do you trade for unbelief? More struggles with fewer answers here on earth and an eternity of suffering under the hatred of satan and pain and agony. I’m thinking one of the worst punishments will be knowing your different choice would have put you in a place of unbelievably marvelous rewards of joy and happiness.

Please my friends, pray that God will change your heart if it is wrong in its choice. God loves you so much and He is a forgiving Father. He wants you with Him! Talk to Him.


Isaiah 41:13 (AMP)

“For I the Lord your God keep hold of your right hand; [I am the Lord],

Who says to you, ‘Do not fear, I will help you.’

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
