ANGELS, FROM THE REALMS OF GLORY
Angels, from the realms of glory,
Wing your flight o’er all the earth;
Ye who sang creation’s story
Now proclaim Messiah’s birth:
Come and worship, come and worship,
Worship Christ, the newborn King.
Gracious God, we thank You Father, we bless Your Holy Name Who lives in heaven and just for the Love of us, You sent down your only begotten Son to be born among men, and choose the lowly place and the most unfitting means to proclaim about His arrival. Father, we thank You. Make us Lord, we pray thee a fitting vessel to carry on the work of salvation and redemption to all hook and cranny as the shepherd through in Jesus Name.
Beloved, thank you so much for finding out time to visit the site today despite all activities going round town. Good sign for your love and fear of the Lord your Savior. Am excited to have you on line at this time of the year. Thank you so much. May the blessings of this wonderful season be home with you in Jesus Name.
For this great season, we want you to watch out around you. God will be speaking to you through the activities that will be going on around you, be at alert and join Him as He moves among men. You may fail to see Jesus in the manger but watch out for Him in your neighborhood, in the life of your brethren, among the unbelievers. Are you surprise I said “unbelievers?”
Very important my beloved, they are the reason for the this celebration, so that they come to the saving grace of Christ as you once did in the past and today you are sharing the gospel all around you (Tit 3:5). Glory be to God in the highest and peace to men of goodwill.
Once again “what will Jesus do at a period like this? Come along with us as you see various activities Christ will be involved in at this season so as to know how to join Him:
Look at the nations and observe— be utterly astounded! For something is taking place in your days that you will not believe when you hear about it.—Habakkuk 1:5
Christians habitually seek God’s voice through prayer, through His word, or through His messengers. Yet sometimes we fail to hear God speak through His activity, even though He is working all around us. Unbelievers see God’s activity without understanding what they see. God encourages His people to watch for His activity so they will know how they should respond and adjust their lives.
The disciples discovered much about God’s power by witnessing Jesus calming a raging storm with a command. Seeing Jesus dine with the notorious sinner, Zacchaeus, taught them a poignant message about God’s love for sinners. Watching Jesus hang upon the cross communicated a compelling message of what God was willing to do to free people from sin. Discovering the empty tomb revealed an astounding truth of God’s victory over death. To those with spiritual discernment, God’s activity is a significant revelation about His heart and His will.
If you are sensitive to what God is doing around you, He will clearly speak to you through His activity. You will know that God is at work, because what you see will astound you, and human power and wisdom will not explain it. If things happen that are direct answers to your prayers, God is speaking to you. When you experience events that surpass your understanding and ability, it may be that God is communicating a critical message to you.
If you want to hear God’s voice, look around you to see what He is doing. When you are watching for God at work, what you see will reveal His character, and you will have a fresh understanding of how to respond to Him.
Beloved, I guess you are in tune with Jesus Christ “The Immanuel” of our time (1Tim 4:10; Lk 1:31-33). Glory be to God for Christ is indeed everlasting from the Throne of David as foretold us by the prophets of old:
“Thou art from everlasting.” Psalm 93:2
Christ is EVERLASTING. Of Him we may sing with David, “Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever.” Rejoice, believer, in Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and for ever. Jesus always was.
The Babe born in Bethlehem was united to the Word, which was in the beginning, by whom all things were made. The title by which Christ revealed Himself to John in Patmos was, “Him which is, and which was, and which is to come.” If He were not God from everlasting, we could not so devoutly love Him; we could not feel that He had any share in the eternal love which is the fountain of all covenant blessings; but since He was from all eternity with the Father, we trace the stream of divine love to Himself equally with His Father and the blessed Spirit.
As our Lord always was, so also He is for evermore. Jesus is not dead; “He ever liveth to make intercession for us.” Resort to Him in all your times of need, for He is waiting to bless you still. Moreover, Jesus our Lord ever shall be. If God should spare your life to fulfil your full day of threescore years and ten, you will find that His cleansing fountain is still opened, and His precious blood has not lost its power; you shall find that the Priest who filled the healing fount with His own blood, lives to purge you from all iniquity.
When only your last battle remains to be fought, you shall find that the hand of your conquering Captain has not grown feeble—the living Saviour shall cheer the dying saint. When you enter heaven you shall find Him there bearing the dew of His youth; and through eternity the Lord Jesus shall still remain the perennial spring of joy, and life, and glory to His people.
Living waters may you draw from this sacred well! Jesus always was, He always is, He always shall be. He is eternal in all His attributes, in all His offices, in all His might, and willingness to bless, comfort, guard, and crown His chosen people.
Yes! He will crown His chosen people at the end. If you want to be part of it. Come and join Him now as He draw men to Himself.
We @ overcomers-faith.org wishes a MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR AHEAD. As usual let us conclude our song
Shepherds, in the field abiding,
Watching o’er your flocks by night,
God with man is now residing;
Yonder shines the infant light:
Sages, leave your contemplations;
Brighter visions beam afar;
Seek the great Desire of nations;
Ye have seen His natal star:
Saints, before the altar bending,
Watching long in hope and fear,
Suddenly the Lord, descending,
In His temple shall appear:
WE LOVE YOU.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
