In reference to the cliche' "JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON", is what I am inspired to write about. Because our Great Teacher Jesus Christ is the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE, God's desire for HIS ordained ministers is, that we should walk in TRUTH, and if Christ be in us, should we not strive toward total surrender to the word of God. Jesus came into the earth for one reason, and that was to bring the light of salvation into the hearts of men so that we might enter into a state of redemption, with legal access to the Father. If we are willing to break the bondage of "tradition", and just obey the word of God, we would reveal the true light of Jesus in the dark places of countless bound up souls. I am sure that God does not esteem condemnable our setting aside a date to honor Jesus birthday, but God does not ascribe to any of man-instituted celebrations. God established certain feast, and holy days for the Israelites to observe as a statute forever throughout their generations. I have yet to find in the word of God where He or Jesus instructed man to set aside a date to celebrate his birthdate. The only thing that Jesus said to do in remembrance of him, was in regards to the observance of taking communion. So, if we want to observe and remember Jesus birthday, what gifts can we give him? If we are observing someone's birthday, we don't go purchase a gift for someone else, the gift should be for the honoree. I know, I have heard all kinds of explanations, it's about giving, right...okay, that's fine, but what does Jesus teach about giving. When Jesus chose his apostles, he sent them forth and commanded them to not go into the way of the Gentiles or any city of the Samaritans, but rather to go unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. "And as ye go , preach, saying the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give." Matthew 10:5-8 "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another." John 13:34-35 God Ordained ministers, and to every believer, the greatest gift that you can give Jesus for HIS SEASON, which is every day, is to introduce HIM to someone, and lead that lost soul into the knowledge of the gift of salvation purchased on their behalf by the death, burial, and Ressurection of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Oh, how the angels in heaven will rejoice...What a gift, what a gift! Glory to God...Hallelujah!!! Amen. WORD FROM GOD: The Blessedness Of Humility Luke 14:7-14 And he put forth a parable to those which were bidden, when he marked how they chose out the chief rooms; saying unto them,When thou art bidden of any man to a wedding, sit not down in the highest room; lest a more honorable man than thou be bidden of him; And he that bade thee and him come and say to thee, Give this man place; and thou begin with shame to take the lowest room. But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room; that when he bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend, go up higher: then shalt thou have worship in the presence of them that sit at meat with thee. For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted. Then said he also to him that bade him, When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbors; lest they also bid thee again, and a recompense be made thee. But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind; And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just. PROPHETIC WORD FOR 2008 Isaiah 66:9 Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith the Lord: shall I cause to bring forth , and shut the womb? saith thy God. PRAISE GOD ALWAYS, AND IN ALL WAYS !!! May the blessings of God empower and propel to higher heights in His kingdom, and deeper depths of astounding revelations, unto all who have taken the time to read this message.
