What Is the Meaning of Christmas? ( by Fenny West)

What Is the Meaning of Christmas?

Christmas(1) He Came for All

Christ Jesus was born
He came for all
Righteousness, Redeemer came
In Him we live, move and have our being
Seated now at the right hand of  His Father
Totally triumphant over all principalities
Majesty and dominion belong to Him
Ascribe Greatness to the Rock our God
Show forth His glory everywhere

Christmas(2) Come and See

Come and See the King of kings
His Name is Wonderful Counsellor
Righteousness Personified
Infinite in wisdom and Preeminent
So beautiful, powerful, merciful
Timeless, Ever-present, very-present
Master, Miracle Worker, Mighty, Most High
Addonai, Author and Finisher, Alpha, Omega
Supreme, sovereign, Sweet Rose of Sharon

Christmas(3) Chief Corner Stone

Chief Corner Stone is He
Healer, Head of the Church,
Risen and exalted, Prince of Peace
Indescribable, indefatigable
Saviour of the world
Teacher extraordinaire
My God, my Maker, my Owner, my Lover
Ancient of Days
Servant King

 

Christmas(4) Creator of All

 

Creator of All- great and small
High and Holy,
Reason for my living, Role Model
In His light we see light
Son of Man, Son of God
The Bright Morning Star ūüĆü
Many will see and marvel
As they make Him Lord-Number One
Surrendered, sold-out

Christmas(5) Choose Right

Choose this day whom you will serve
Hold on to that which will last
Refuse to be led astray
Insist on walking on the straight and narrow path

Sow good seeds
Turn every difficulty into an opportunity
Mean what you say and say what you mean
Ascribe Greatness to Jesus Christ
Sing His praise all the time

 

Christmas (6)Come and bow down

Come and bow down to the King of Kings
He is the  holy and anointed One
Risen and exalted One
In Him is live, love and peace profound
Soon and very soon, He’ll come for His Bride
To take her (the Church) to be on His side
Many many will be there (saints), will you?

Accept Him NOW as Lord and Saviour
Save your seat, make your reservation quick

Christmas (7)Christ Jesus- the power of God

Christ Jesus- the power of God, the Word
Holding everything by the Word of His power
Reigning in the lives of Saints
I Am That I Am, God of Abraham,
Surrounded by glory, beauty, majesty
Turning lives around, doing wonders
Miracles, healing, transformation
Able to do exceeding abundantly
Sing His praise unreservedly

God Gave Jesus As Gift ( by Fenny West)

God Gave Jesus As Gift

 birth of Jesus8 birth of Jesus9 birth of Jesus3 birth of Jesus ushered God with us Birth of Jesus1

God gave Jesus as Gift-

The greatest Christmas Gift,

Who stooped so low to lift,

And so ended the rift.

 

Born in a barn- stable,

Sounded like a fable.

All things are possible,

To God Who’s well able.

 

Because of compassion,

Sort reconciliation.

Jesus brought redemption.

No more condemnation.

 

With sheep shared a place,

All because of His grace;

For us to see His Face;

Enter the throne of Grace.

 

 

 

 

16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John3:16

The Beauty of the Babe ( by Fenny West)

 

The Beauty of the Babe

 in the beginning God ecards God is Greater jesus loves you In Christ wise men knock CGCF CGD9

The Beauty of the Babe

of Bethlehem was:

Our Salvation came

The Son of God was born

Heralding a New Dawn.

The wonder of the Babe

Of the Bethlehem was:

Our Redeemer came

The Prince of Peace was Born

Joy came to all who mourned.

The Good News of the Babe

Of Bethlehem was:

The Lamb of God came

To take away our sin;

To lift us out of the bin.

The gladness of the Babe

Of Bethlehem was:

That God came to man

For man to come to God

According to the divine plan.

14Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.Isa7:14

6     For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

7     Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

Isa9:5-7

This Christmas Let Us Focus ( by Fenny West)

This Christmas Let Us Focus

CGCF CGD9 CG3F CG53

This Christmas let us focus
On the Son of God-Jesus
Who came and went to the cross
Took our sin, shame and curse.

The light of God shone on us
The dead, the blind, diseased-us
He brought hope to the hopeless
He brought life to the lifeless.

He will come back one day
To take home those in the way.
Today is the day of salvation
Today is the day of redemption.

As in the days of Noah, so shall it be
The foolish will scoff, the wise will be ready
Decisions determined destiny
Choices carry consequences.

6 For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
Isa9:6-7
30 Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.
31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name JESUS.
32 He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David.
Luke1:30-32
10 Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.
11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
12 And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:
14″ Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!” Luke 2:10-14

Those Who Run the Race of Grace ( by Fenny West)

Those Who Run the Race of Grace

CGCF CGD9 CGBD j0162958

Those who run the Race of Grace
Will not run the Christmas rat-race
They will maintain their focus
Rather than give gifts, they give Jesus.

Those who run the race of Grace
In All they do Always seek His face
They ensure they within the Word
Even though they are in the world.

They know full well they are not of this world
They know that His word is His will and His will is His word
They know God’s good, acceptable and perfect will
That is their joy, pleasure, craving and even their fill.

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Rom12:2

14     I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.

16They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. John17:14,16

Do Not Love the World

15   Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

16¬†¬† For all that is in the world — the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life — is not of the Father but is of the world.

17   And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

1John2:15-17

 

 

Whereas I am all for using the  reason for the reason to point people to  Jesus and the cross and lead them to salvation, following the world to indulge in a season of greed, drunkenness, indebtedness is surely not our calling.
This is a time when people claim to celebrate the birth of Jesus and yet many would not want the ‘Birthday Boy’ into His party. Mention Jesus in most of the razzmatazz and you will be considered a party pooper.
I recall the story of Moody who was invited to a party and he asked them, ‘Can I bring my friend? And they asked him what is his name? He told them, Jesus.
The reply was, ‘I don’t think He would enjoy it.’
Moody politely told them,’ then I wouldn’t enjoy it either.’
What would Jesus do in this season? What is the priority on God’s agenda. If all we do is wine and dine then we have missed the mark, in my opinion.

Offer to take Jesus to most of the worldly celebrations and you would see the curious looks on most faces. That says it all. We are in this world but not of this world. We are called to be different. ‘Come out from among them.’ ‘You are in this world but not of the world.’

Born to Bring Life

Born to Bring Life

Born to bring life;

Born to lift us all;

From the sewer and gutter;

To the place better, cleaner and higher.

babe 

Born to bring God’s peace,

That our hopelessness may cease.

Born to brighten our lives,

That we may brighten other lives.

 CGD9

Born to release us

from  the prison-

the prison of sin.

Born to break our chains

and bring us into His train

of peace, joy and love

boundless from above.

 CGCF

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.John14:6

3  The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. John10:10

Christ Our Peace

14        For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation,

Ephe2:14

Christless Christmas

Christless  Christmas

 008a_th

Christless  Christmas

Can spell crises

Dissipate energies

Court indebtedness

Embrace wastefulness

Open a can of worms

Better be warned.

 AG00519_

So worship  the King

And to Him let us sing

Let Him be the focus

Not goods, not pleasure, not us.

Let Him take His rightful place

That we might see His Face.

 

CGD9

3¬†¬†¬†¬† He answered and said to them, “Why do you also transgress the commandment of God because of your tradition?

4¬†¬†¬†¬† For God commanded, saying, ‘Honor your father and your mother’; and, ‘He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.’

5¬†¬†¬†¬† But you say, ‘Whoever says to his father or mother, “Whatever profit you might have received from me is a gift to God” —

6¬†¬†¬†¬† then he need not honor his father or mother.’ Thus you have made the commandment of God of no effect by your tradition.

7     Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying:

8¬†¬†¬†¬† ‘ These people draw near to Me with their mouth, And honor Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me.

9¬†¬†¬†¬† And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’

Matt15:3-9

O What a Night!

O What a Night!

O what a night, that saw His grace appearing

God came to man that man may come to God

No room in the inn yet God was still willing

To give His Son in fulfilment of His Word

The Promise long made will now be made good

Nothing can bar His purpose and plan

You can take His Word as your food

The Son of God must come to man

O what a night, that saw the Saviour come to man

O what a night, that saw the Saviour come to man.

 

O what a Night, the Light of God appearing

the answer to man’s separation

the long yawning gap to be greeted with bridging

the God of Hope restoring our hope

the prisoner of sin will find a sweet release

the Prince of peace will make reconciliation

to all those who call on Him

who bow the knee to the King of kings

O bow the knee to the King, the King of kings

O bow the knee to the King, the King of kings

Wishing You a very Happy Christmas !
