“And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men”…(Luke.2:13-14)
The LORD gave a, God’s “REHMAH WORD”, for this Year’s Christmas which I am prayerfully sharing with you. My turn with the Church –Esther Church at Sambalpallam falls on the 1st,-Sec.2019 Sunday and I will deliver the same message and will be breaking the bread and sharing the Holy Communion and in every service where I
This Year, as we reflect on the birth of Christ, “GOD’S PEACE” and “GOD’S GOOD WILL”, manifest in each one of our lives as we conclude this year 2019.
1. God’s word teaches us that He is our peace. “For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity.(Ephesians.2:14-16
… DO WE HAVE PEACE IN OUR FAMALIES? DO WE HAVE PEACE IN OUR SOUL? Are we guilty of some things? Are we afraid and fearful of some things? Haven’t we forgiven some one? Do we hate someone and have grudge and a spirit of revenge? Do we woe someone some things? What is that steals our Peace? He paid the price for our peace. In Isaiah 53:5..” the chastisement of our peace was upon him. To every one of us who go to the cross seeking God’s peace, He provides peace. HE IS THE PRINCE OF PEACE. He gives peace in our soul
2. His Peace is Divine and not Human and worldly. HIS PEACE IS ETERNAL AND EVERLASTINGH. Our Lord Jesus Said, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.(John.14:27). No matter, what may come, will it be a journey through fire or water, life or death, plenty or famished, healthy or sick, we will have His presence and peace. The world will go through turbulent times. No matter how hard The Pope and the other world leaders try to bring peace by their wisdom, money and bless their nations with all goodies, they cannot ESTABLISH PEACE FOR THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD. BUT LORD JESUS AND THE Gospel can! That’s the only hope.
3. We are ambassadors of Peace; for Jesus said, “And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house. Yes! THE GOSPEL OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST IS THE GOSPEL OF PEACE!” And your feetshod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;…(Ephesians.6:15) This is not telling people that we all want to live with all in peace; rather it is the ‘PROCLAMATION THAT PEOPLE SHOULD TURN TO GOD AND SEEK HIS PEACE, BY BELIEVING IN THE WORD PREACHED. We are reconcilers. “Blessed is the peace makers, for they shall be called ass the CHILDRFEN OF GOD!
II. Satan’s ILL WILL – and GOD’S GOOD WILL TOWARD MEN:
From the beginning satan’s only mission is t Propagate Lies, misinterpret, Twist, and to hood wink with “creamy false promises”, and then leave them dead in their soul, lose their DIVINE GLORY, lose their “esteemed position”, embrace curse and divine anger and be cast out. Satan is a manipulator. Lord Jesus said, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly”. (John.10:10)
Satan’s mission is manifested through “Sickness, debts, unemployment, unmarried status, barren wombs, various kinds of lusts, abuses of various kinds, immorality, disobedience, disagreement, famine and starvation etc…But when Lord Jesus was born in the flesh, he drove home the last nail in the coffin of Satan. Jesus went around preaching Hope, forgiveness of sins, deliverance from sickness, raised people from death, he made the lame to walk, and opened the blind eyes so that they may see and He cast out demons. “The one who commits sin is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God was revealed for this purpose: to destroy the devil's works.(1. John.3:8)
Are we not living witnesses to the goodness of God in our lives? And God’s goodness will continue to be with us If we abide in Him like wine branches with the wine tree. It is bountiful, eternal, immeasurable, and who knows the fathom of it. For God’s Word says, “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. (I.Corinthians.2:9; Quoted from Isaiah, 64:4)
