This message is not for everybody; I know that when you see it is truly for you.
This is about Christmas and how you have been spending it all these years. Maybe for some you will hear me when you do not have any more ability or resources for some to put a Christmas tree in your house.
I was listening today to a Christian group from the war torn Iraq. One says: I never had such a bad Christmas where we could not afford a Christmas Tree! This man is at least in Church! And Jesus is surely in their midst when they call; but when the Tree is not present “there is no Christmas!”
I hope you have heard many say this. They are telling the revelation that their Altar and their god of Christmas is not there! Go figure.
To those who really love God; there will come a time when you will be made not to afford buying the tree because one of God’s Name is Jealous. Exodus 34:14 For thou shalt worship no other god: for the Lord whose Name is Jealous, is a jealous God.
Luke 2:8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them……
The Lord will take you down to a level where you become Shepherd watching Flock by night! Does that ring a bell?
You will be reduced to an invisible Pastor and only then an angel shall appear to you and share with you the True Story about the Birth of Christ!
Some Ministries shall be reduced to this level for the angel to appear. Why?
Matthew 2:3 When the King had heard these things, he was troubled and all Jerusalem with him!
Why all Jerusalem? These are the Mega Churches of the day. These are the big TV ministries of the day. Do not hear me wrong I am a product of Mega Churches and TV Ministries as well and I thank God for them.
The Question is why are the Churches comfortable in their own Jerusalem to a point of missing the Birth of the King? They are not willing to go to the insignificant Bethlehem of their Ministry and they are not willing to be reduced to the Pastors who watch Flock by night!
Well we are back to those times. Jesus is saying “I will come and tell the Story of My Birth Myself through The Messengers of My choice.
The time is coming when Jesus will send His Angel once more to His Shepherds who are ready to go down to Bethlehem.
I will close this installment with this verse: Luke 2:15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord has made known unto us.
I prophesy to you this day; you shall be in the company of the true shepherds who are humbled by God who will say: Let’s go to the insignificant Bethlehem; the youngest of Judea. When you go down there you become a Shepherd that watch Flock by night. Your armor bearers and all flamboyance will have to remain in Jerusalem with King Herod. The story of the Birth of Jesus will be required of you even if it will mean that you be stripped of all Jerusalem Ministry Resource and Herod Ministry Network.
Come Down to Bethlehem or the Lord will bring you down here. That day you will see no Christmas Tree and that shall be a sign unto you that you have Come Down to Jesus.
