Because of Him....

So as this Christmas rolls around, I am reminded of the greatest gift we could ever want or receive.....Jesus! Because of Jesus we have access to God, forgiveness of sins, perfect standing before God, all his inheritance is ours and we are seated in heavenly places with Him, and have a promise to enter into eternity with Him one day and endlessly worship our Daddy and King!!!! The birth of Jesus into this world is far more amazing than we can really fathom.........Christ came humbly, he came from heaven to earth once God, now a mere man....he did not consider equality with God.....he came so we could be set free.....he did this as an ultimate act of this season let's celebrate in awe and worship of the newborn King, who came so we could have life, and life abundant.....He is our Saviour, our Emmanuel, the Risen Lamb.......I pray that if you do not "know" who Jesus is that the Holy Spirit would open the eyes of your heart so you too can have a revelation of who Jesus really is and experience the joy and peace that knowing Christ brings....the birth of Jesus came with a powerful promise, he had a destiny to bring grace and healing and peace......I pray the Spirit of God would make known to you God's gift to you through Christ this Christmas, I pray that the spirit of wisdom and revelation would make the joy of Christmas... Jesus, who He really is come alive in your hearts !!! And may we celebrate the supernatural meaning of Christmas, not just the traditional holiday good cheer, but the true essence of Christmas, the birth of Christ who is the Saviour of the World for all who would believe in Him.....!!! Merry Christmas!!!!

O Holy Night
Christmas Carol Lyrics

O holy night! The stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of the dear Saviour's birth.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining.
Till He appeared and the Spirit felt its worth.
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices!
O night divine, the night when Christ was born;
O night, O holy night, O night divine!
O night, O holy night, O night divine!

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand.
O'er the world a star is sweetly gleaming,
Now come the wisemen from out of the Orient land.
The King of kings lay thus lowly manger;
In all our trials born to be our friends.
He knows our need, our weakness is no stranger,
Behold your King! Before him lowly bend!
Behold your King! Before him lowly bend!

Truly He taught us to love one another,
His law is love and His gospel is peace.
Chains he shall break, for the slave is our brother.
And in his name all oppression shall cease.
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
With all our hearts we praise His holy name.
Christ is the Lord! Then ever, ever praise we,
His power and glory ever more proclaim!
His power and glory ever more proclaim!
