Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. James 1:17.
Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift. 2 Corinthians 9:15.
The day is Boxing day, and gifts lights up the celebration of Christ. God is the father of lights, light is his invention and gifts his lifestyle. One of the hallmarks of Christmas is the exchange of gifts. Jesus Christ and the kingdom of Heaven are God’s gift for the season. God is the father of lights; the gift is Christ, he gives gifts to men. These are good and perfect gifts for a perfect Christmas. The gifts are free, it makes men free. The gift of God meets every need of man. The wise men also gave gifts fitting for the King; Gold, frankincense & myrrh. These gifts were given in worship; symbolic of the office of the King & Priest. The gift of à Saviour from God the father, not from Santa. God is the most generous giver, no one can ever out-give him. In Christ, heaven was given to the earth; his Kingdom came. When Christ the gift of God is received, hè gives gifts to men. Thank God for his unspeakable gift to man. The gift of God is the highest gift, good and perfect gift to men. Incomparable to gifts expected from the North pole from the King of Clowns. À joke already taken too far; Jesus is coming to town, not Santa Claus. À gift of toys cannot compare to the gift of Christ to the world. An ornament of plastic and à jewel for life and eternity. Your gift is Christ, your portion is his Kingdom; gifts to men. Recieve nothing less this Christmas. The gifts is for those who know the king and belong to his kingdom. Every good and perfect heavenly gift is yours today from the father. Recieve the gift of Christ at Chrismas. Jesus Christ has come to town. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16.
Say his name! 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. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever.The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. Isaiah 9:6-7. Names are powerful tools for identity and destiny. After the birth of a child, his name is the next quest. For a king with a lineage, names of former powerful kings are speculated. For this king, his name was prophesied. Multiple characteristics were documented, defining his identity & destiny. His name shall be wonderful, counsellor, the mighty God, the everlasting father. That does not sound like a name but a vivid capture of his life in essence. Names follow persons and their lineages; they are not simple terms. “And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest:and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.”Luke 1:31-33. There is no contradiction between the prophets and the angel. It’s the same God, the same name, the same purpose, identity and destiny. For every child given to man, a name is also given. May the names of your children be covenant names indeed. Jesus is his name, the course of his life was defined in the name. He has a human name, which was also his covenant name. His name is above every other name, everything and everyone bows. His kingdom has no end, great ones come and go but his kingdom reigns for ever. In his name his kingdom is provoked. His name is the password to everything in his kingdom and in heaven, on earth and under the earth. One name for everything. He name saves, delivers and heals; his name shall be called Jesus Christ. He is the king, his kingdom has come; this is Christmas. “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”Philippians 2:10-11.
Born to reign. 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. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom,to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. Isaiah 9:6-7. The birth of Jesus is the beginning of the kingdom of God on the earth. This kingdom is not only spiritual but physical with members & structures. The government is upon the shoulders of Jesus Christ. The Church is the extension of this government on the earth. You are either a participant or a spectator. Now understand ye why the palace railed at the birth of Jesus Christ. This is the reason for the friendship of Herod & Pilate at his crucifixion. He was born to rein eternally. The reason for Governments is to provide solutions to life situation. This duty is often unfulfilled and the population deprived. Jesus is not running a parallel government, his government supersedes all. The greatest need of man is the foundation of his government; salvation. The beauty of his government is that every member has equal access to him. Equity justice and judgement is the character of his throne. Jesus is the Governor of the universe. Upon the throne of David, he orders, establishes, judges and adjudicates. Human governments cannot deliver on their promises without his help. He does not need them, they always need him. Every agenda that stood the test of time was as directed by him. Every human government that takes a detour from his plan crashes. Now you know who is in charge in the nations of the world. He is the King of kings & Lord of lords; he was born to reign for ever. It starts with you; his throne is in your heart. He is lord of all or not lord at all. It’s time to exchange the temporal for the eternal. Jesus is Lord. “Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.”John 18:37.
