Joy to the world, the Lord is come!

Let earth receive her King;

Let every heart prepare Him room,

And heaven and nature sing,

And heaven and nature sing,

And heaven, and heaven, and nature sing.

Joy to the world, the Savior reigns!

Let men their songs employ;

While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains

Repeat the sounding joy,

Repeat the sounding joy,

Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy.

No more let sins and sorrows grow,

Nor thorns infest the ground;

He comes to make His blessings flow

Far as the curse is found,

Far as the curse is found,

Far as, far as, the curse is found.

He rules the world with truth and grace,

And makes the nations prove

The glories of His righteousness,

And wonders of His love,

And wonders of His love,

And wonders, wonders, of His love.

Faithful Father thank You for the mystery of Your love to mankind. Thank You for standing sure on Your promise to redeem mankind from eternity destruction (Isa 9:6-7). Thank You for upholding same promise even to the very end (Lk 1:10-12). Glory and honour belongs to You as we worship You this day in Jesus.

Faithful God, howbeit that God came down to dwell among men except love that is unexplainable, thank You for that glorious day when the hymn was heard on earth (Lk 2:13-14), wow! What a glorious moment that heaven touch the earth.

Blest indeed are those who carry the goodnews of good tidings, what a glorious moment that was in their lives (Lk 2:8, 15-17). Thank You Father for the gifting to the Babe Jesus that enabled Him to run His race to the end. What an eye opener to us that indeed You have given us all that we need to complete our race even as we came forth from our mother’s womb (2Pet 1:3-4). Praise the Lord!

Beloveth, is Christmas day, a day we celebrate the birth of Christ, is indeed a merry time for us as we remember when Divinity touch the earth, Praise the Lord! Just go about today celebrating the birth of Jesus!

Telling everyone that Jesus came down from heaven that we may be save from sin and sorrow. Tell them that sickness will no longer reign in their mortal bodies as He has taken all that away from us and has come to show us the way to His Father since He is the way (Jn 14:6).

Beloved, don’t stop at the celebration of the birth Jesus, climb up hither as that is the only way to keep pace with the vision of Jesus (Lk 4:18). Don’t stop at seeing Jesus in the manger; come up hither to see Him praying for the whole world (Lk 11:1-5, 22:31-33, 39-46).

It is a prayer day for us as a ministry and we want to believe that it is not coincidentally that it falls on the day we are celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. So it then behold on us as we make merry, to also remember to pray as commanded us by Christ Lk 18:1.

We must climb higher to be with the Lord as that is only way we will know the mind of Christ, when we are in the closet with Him and His Father together with the Holy Spirit.

May the season of the birth of Christ bring a reunion to many who are wandering and are lost in sin. May we remember them in our prayers and ask the Spirit of God to quicken their mortal bodies from the grave of sins and resurrect them into the glorious light of which Christ has shine around us (Jn 1:1-5). Amen alleluia! Amen alleluia!! amen alleluia!!!

Come up higher as we meet with the Lord:

Nahum 1:1-3:19, Psalm 146:1-10, Proverbs 31:13-14, Revelation 15:1-16:11

Climbing Higher

Look to the mountains—the feet of one bringing good news and proclaiming peace!—Nahum 1:15

There are numerous references in Scripture where the pursuit of God is likened to a deer climbing steadily, sure-footedly toward the high mountain peaks, and the more we consider the simile, the more rich and rewarding are the truths that flow out of it.

Why does God liken the pursuit of Himself to a deer making its way upward to the high places? And why does He focus so much attention upon the deer’s feet? Well, the deer has an amazing ability, when climbing a steep mountain slope, of ensuring that its back feet alight on the exact spot where its front feet were positioned. This perfect correlation between its front and back feet enables the deer to avoid the dangers that would befall a less coordinated animal.

The Bible writers, in drawing attention to the sure-footedness of the deer, are attempting to show (so I believe) that what the deer experiences in the natural realm, we can experience in the spiritual realm. Do you really want to climb higher with God than you have ever gone before? Is there a deep longing in your heart to ascend, like the prophets and seers of old, into the mountain of the Lord? Then take heart—you can. This can be the greatest time of spiritual advance you have ever known. If you supply the willingness, then I promise you—God will supply the power.

Prayer                                     

O Father, my prayer is—make this the greatest time of my life. I long more than anything to ascend into the mountain peaks with You. I am willing—now send the power. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Further Study

Isa 55; Ps 42:2; 63:1; 143:6

What did the psalmist express continually?

What does God promise?

Beloved, we are not only to climb up higher; we are also to make sure that our feet are sure footed as that of the deer. We must desire strongly in our heart to be with Lord come what may. Our God has planned out salvation of the lost man back to the fold, let us make sure we embrace this salvation plan and bring as many as we may find around us to the saving grace of God so that the essence of this day will not be in vain.

May the good Lord bless us as we showcase Christ to the world by the gospel we preach we our lives and help we extend to mankind in Jesus Name Amen. Praise the Lord!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
