Today, a brief reflection on Christmas is shared.  While the divine benefits of Christmas at first are experienced and made visible through abundance, freedom, giving, and gratitude, atonement and rebirth are at the heart of Christmas.  Along with holy blood conveying innocence, life, and purity, the priceless gifts of Christmas include unselfish sacrifices of immortality, majesty, mortality, and sovereignty; discipleship; fellowship; and eternal inheritance.  Around the world today, there are many customs, practices and traditions used to celebrate Christmas as a holiday.  However, throughout the kingdom of GOD, Christmas is a day of judgment, divine appearance in flesh (we say, Incarnation), and the bestowal of grace upon all created beings and living creatures.  Christmas separates those who acknowledge divine love, sacred wisdom, and the supremacy of GOD from those who do not.  Permanent changes and eternal operations are made visible and revealed to all through such life experiences as birth, condemnation, discovery, death, fasting, healing, reconciliation, and restoration.  In addition to a foretaste of new life and new relationship with divinity mankind receives divine comfort, encouragement and enlightenment with assurances and promises of glory, joy, perfection, and sanctification.  All are to see with new eyes and holy understanding that mankind is forever embraced to be an immortal, incorruptible companion to divinity.  May your spirit be enriched and divinely touched this Christmas, 2014, and throughout 2015, the coming New Year.

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.  I have coveted no man’s silver, or gold, or apparel.  Yea, ye yourselves know, that these hands have ministered unto my necessities, and to them that were with me.  I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.  (Acts 20:  32-35, KJV)
