*HALLELUJAH !! IT IS CHRISTMAS*
Galatians 4:4 (KJV)
*But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,*
Today a King was born
The saviour came to the world.
The King of heaven came to our world.
John 1:14 (KJV)
*And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.*
The coming of our Lord Jesus Christ two thousand years ago ushered in grace to mankind, restored to us the lost dignity and authority. Today, as we celebrate His first coming. Let it be a reminder of the fact that the season of grace for salvation is still on for those who are yet to embrace it. Also, to remind us of His second coming.
Wishing you and all your lovely family a beautiful Christmas.
> Thank you my Lord for the joy I have in Christ.
> Thank you Lord for your ultimate love for me and mankind.
> Thank you Lord for the blessing of a lovely family and brethren.
> Thank you for the joy of celebrating another Christmas in good health and peace of mind.
Beloved, continue to lay it to heart the Lord’s faithfulness in every aspect of your life and family.
Sweet Holy Spirit, help me to be conscious of the Lord’s second coming.
Sweet Holy Spirit, help me that such day will not meet me unprepared.
Thank you Father for working exceedingly and abundantly above all that I ask or think.
Receive my thanks and praise in the mighty name of Jesus!
See you tomorrow.
*Pray without ceasing.*
1 Thessalonians 5:16-17 (KJV)

CHRISTMAS EVERY DAY
Friday, December 25th 2020
For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew]… [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live] (Ephesians 2:10 AMPC).
Jesus was born that men may have, and live the good life, as our theme scripture reveals. In John 10:10 AMPC, He said, “…I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).”
You weren’t born to merely live, but to live the good life which He prepared for you ahead of time—an excellent life. Now, you can be full of enthusiasm, joy and strength, doing great things, blessing your world every day. It can be Christmas for you every day! That’s God’s plan and His Word to you even now; and His Word to you is all that matters.
You have something to celebrate, not just this season, but every day: His life in you; His Word in your spirit. No matter where you are in this world, no matter the challenges you may have faced, you can shout, “I’m free” because Jesus gave you a life that’s beyond this world, a life that’s superior to the decadence and corruption of this failing world; a life that’s divine; untainted and immune to sickness, disease and infirmities; a life that’s indestructible. Glory to God!
Maybe you’ve been living in fear because of an unfavourable diagnosis from the doctors about your health; the life in you is superior to sickness. You’ve arrived in the place where sickness and disease have lost their grip on you. Let go of the fears. Walk in the truth; live in the truth.
The truth is that you have the God-life in you; you’re an offspring of the Word. Greater is He that’s in you than any sickness that may attempt to fasten itself on you. You’ve overcome diabetes, heart trouble, chest pain, cancer, fibroid, or whatever health challenge it may be! The strength of God is in you now. So you can live and enjoy your life in sound health, prosperity, peace and joy EVERY DAY; that’s what Christmas means. That’s why Jesus came (John 10:10 AMPC). Blessed be His Name forever.
I’m a success; I live in health, because the life of God is in me; the strength of God is in me. No disease or infirmity can thrive in my body, because my body is the temple of the Holy Spirit! I’m living the good life prearranged for me before the foundation of the world. I live in the victory, glory, dominion and righteousness of Christ; it’s Christmas EVERY DAY! Hallelujah!
1 Peter 2:9 AMPC But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, [God’s] own purchased, special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.
John 10:10 AMPC The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).

*Christmas: A Special Celebration Indeed*
_Luke 2:11-14 (GNB), Isaiah 9:6 (LB)_
_This very day in David’s town yourSavior was born-Christ the Lord! ….” Suddenly a great army of heaven’s angels appeared with the angel, singing praises to God:”Glory to God in the highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom he is pleased!” *For unto us a child is born; unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder. These will be his royal titles: “Wonderful,” “Counselor,” “The Mighty God,” “The Everlasting Father,” “The Prince of Peace?_
If we truly understood what it took for God to come down to earth in the form of man, to suffer and die to save man, we would rejoice and celebrate this day even more than we do. If we truly understood what the coming of Jesus made possible for man and the great life and hope that we now have because of Jesus, we would not only celebrate today, we would celebrate Jesus every single day of our lives!
The celebration of the birth of Christ is a celebration of so many things. One of them is the celebration of God’s great love for man. It was because of God’s great love for the world that He sent Jesus to us. It was not a gift that we deserved in any way. When the Bible says God so loved the world, the word world there does not refer to Christians or good people. It refers to all of mankind; all who had sinned and fallen short of His glory. It refers to every human being that has lived and that will ever live on this earth. Even when we did not know we needed salvation, God provided Jesus to bring about our salvation. He offered His salvation to us free of charge. What an amazing love!
The celebration of the birth of Jesus is also a celebration of the great price and sacrifice that Jesus was willing to make for us. The Bible says, “…although being essentially one with God and in the form of God [possessing the fullness of the attributes which make God God], did not think this equality with God was a thing to be eagerly grasped or retained. But stripped Himself [of all privileges and rightful dignity], so as to assume the guise of a servant (slave), in that He became like men and was born a human being”. O, what a love!.
Celebration Guide: Thank God for the great love He showed to the world by sending Jesus to come and to be born as a man to bring salvation to the world.
Merry Christmas to you

*Jesus, the Gift with a Lift*
“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.”
Luke. 2:11 (KJV)
We can never thank God enough for the gift of His only begotten Son. It has been rightly said that when God gave us Jesus, He gave His best. Jesus is the reason for the season. Without Him, there will be no Christmas. Many people get caught up in the issue of dates: was Jesus really born on the 25th of December? Beloved, don’t be caught up in irrelevancies. Question is was Jesus born? The answer is YES. Interestingly, even the weather adjusts to celebrate His birth.
We are in that season where multiplied millions all over the world are celebrating the birth of Jesus. The sad part is that a large number are celebrating someone they do not even know. Can you imagine a birthday celebration without the celebrant? That is what multiplied thousands and indeed millions are doing. Thank God for those who already know Him. As you celebrate His birth, reach out to someone today. Share the good news. Jesus is the gift with a lift. When He comes into your life, He makes all things new.
Do you know Him? If you don’t, please don’t feel condemned, you can know Him today. Only pray this prayer: Almighty God, I come to you today, I know that I am a sinner and I cannot save myself, that is why I come. Jesus, I believe that you came to this world, you died and rose again and you paid the supreme price for my sin. I confess you today as my Lord and Saviour. Thank you for accepting me into your family. Thank you Lord for opening my eyes to see you today, in Jesus’ name.
If you prayed that prayer from your heart, welcome to the family of God. You can send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be glad to be in touch with you.
Remember: Jesus is the reason for the season. God bless you real good is my prayer. Compliments of the season.

*TOPIC: THE MYSTERY OF THE BIRTH OF CHRIST*
🗣️The birth of Jesus defied and bypassed natural order; it suspended the protocol of nature to achieve Kingdom purpose.
*SCRIPTURE* 📖: …she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS. Matthew 1:25
*THOUGHT FOR THE DAY* 🤔: The birth of Jesus defied and bypassed natural order; it suspended the protocol of nature to achieve Kingdom purpose.
I wish you a merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year in advance!
We thank God for the Gift of His only begotten Son who was born and died for us (John 3:16). Today marks the anniversary of the birth of Jesus Christ which is called Christmas.
Christmas is what many people celebrate, yet many don’t know what it really is or the essence of it.
So, the question is: what is Christmas?
Christmas is the annual commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ by His followers called Christians all over the world.
The Scripture makes it clear in the Book of Matthew Chapters 1 and 2 that the birth of our Master Jesus, the Saviour of the world, was not a normal birth as it defied and bypassed natural orders and protocols (Matthew 1:1-18).
*Now, we shall look at some of the mysteries that surrounded the birth of Jesus Christ.*
*1. The mystery of unnatural conception: This is a conception that happens without the meeting of a man and a woman (Matthew 1:18). The birth of Jesus defied and bypassed natural order; it suspended the protocol of nature to achieve kingdom purpose* .
*2. The mystery of incarnation: This is not reincarnation but incarnation. It is the mystery of God becoming man (John 1:14).*
*3. The birth of Christ was the mystery that changed the order of history and the arrangement of calendar. Everything that happened before Christ was born is dated BC and everything that happened subsequently is dated A.D* .
*4. The mystery of Jesus’ birth had great impact on nature and creation. It was the star that announced and recorded His birth (Matthew 2:2).*
Christmas, the birth of Jesus has, therefore, come to break every natural and unnatural barrier to the fulfillment of God’s purpose and agenda for your life.
On this special day, I prophesy to you the impartation of all that the birth of Jesus has to offer. The end of every frustrating situation in your life has come, in Jesus’ Name.
*REMEMBER THIS* 💡: The birth of Jesus defied and bypassed natural order; it suspended the protocol of nature to achieve Kingdom purpose.
*1. Passionately ask God to make the mystery of the birth of Jesus Christ real in your life* .
*2. Make up your mind to intensify your passion for God in this season* .
*PRAYER* 🙏🏼: Lord Jesus, I thank You for Your birth to save humanity. Father, I demand on this day that the mystery behind the birth of Your Son, Jesus Christ be made real in my life and destiny Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
