Hello Precious One and Merry Christmas!!!!! 12-24-2017
Luke 2:10-11 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid! For behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people: Today in the City of David a Savior has been born to you. He is Christ the Lord!
What is this Good News of Great Joy for ALL people?
Colossians 2:9-15 For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and you have been given fullness in Christ who is head over every power and authority. In him you were also circumcised with a circumcision not performed by human hands. Your whole self ruled by the flesh was put off when you were circumcised by Christ,
having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through your faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead. When you were dead in your trespasses and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our trespasses, having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.
All of this Good News of Great Joy has already been done to us, now, we simply believe all of it and embrace it all, by the power of the Holy Spirit!!! While the birth of Jesus is something to celebrate, it is what that birth accomplished for us that causes us Great Joy!!! Holy Spirit is continually opening the eyes of our heart to fullness of this gospel, the fullness of our salvation!!! Holy Spirit is the One who opens the eyes of our heart to know our Savior, and all that He purchased for us in His Cross and Resurrection!
Jesus purchased the fullness of our salvation, then He leaves and sends to us the Holy Spirit who reveals to our hearts, the fullness of our inheritance In Christ Jesus!!! If Jesus just died and rose from the dead, we would not know in the depths of our heart, with Power, what Jesus purchased and accomplished for us!!! Holy Spirit is just as important to us today, as Jesus is to us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is a radical statement to most people because there is a great fear in much of the church today about Holy Spirit!!!!
Jesus was born, Himself, by the Holy Spirit!!!
Luke 1:30-35 But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus.
He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.” “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?” The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God.
So, Jesus was born by the power of the Holy Spirit. The Father releases His power to the earth by Holy Spirit. Any display of power of God on the earth, is always done by Holy Spirit! So, Jesus cleanses us of ALL unrighteousness, all sin, all sickness, disease, weakness and lack and then the Father, by the power of the Holy Spirit, raises us into heaven with Jesus! The Father then glorifies us and fills us with the fullness of His kingdom, all by the power of the Holy Spirit!
Our salvation is the Father’s plan, Jesus came to the earth and purchased our salvation by His Blood, and now Holy Spirit is making alive in our hearts, today, all that Jesus purchased!!!
Ephesians 1:17-19 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe.
For the birth of Jesus to have power and revelence in our lives today, it is the Holy Spirit who breathes “Life” from God, into our hearts and makes the birth, death and resurrection alive and powerful in our hearts today!!!!! A part from Holy Spirit breathing “Life from God” into our hearts, Jesus’s life is only a historical event just like any other past event! But Holy Spirit makes the Life of Jesus, alive and powerful in our hearts today!!!!!
For us to grasp the significance of what Jesus purchased for us, we need to be totally dependent on Holy Spirit to fill us with the “Breath of Heaven”, the power of God!!!!!!! We need more than an intellectual grasp of history, we need the power and awakening and enlightening of the Holy Spirit, so we can walk in power and dominion over all things that Jesus purchased for us!!!!!!
I Bless you in the full power of the Holy Spirit!!!!!! I pray your Christmas is filled with the power and Love of God our Father as we all celebrate the birth and Life of Jesus!!!!! Blessings and Merry Christmas to you, your family, your friends and finally to the whole world!!!!!
