Givers of love are Heaven sent, and we learn to follow the Star✨✨✨into our destiny for a crown of Glory👑as gift-giver🎁of life, light, love….🌈 A reflection of the covenant rights between God and His people. Birthing the gift of life in you is synonymous with the birth of King Jesus.
Scripture Reading: Matthew 2. Song of Praise: O Holy Night! “The stars are brightly shining. It is the night of our dear Savior’s birth. Long lay the world in sin and error pining. Til He appeared and the soul felt its worth. A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices. For yonder breaks a new and glorious morning. Fall on your knees, and hear the angels voices. 0 night divine, O night when Christ was born. O night, O Holy night, O night divine.”
The night season before the birth of Baby Jesus is a period of reflecting on the gift giver of life. The covenant between God and man, His promises and our obedience for a life of abundance. There comes a time when one ceases to see what’s ahead and needs a guarding star to help with taking another step. In my own night before season of human form, I felt like a child needing to be born over again; and yes, I did need the newness of the life light of Christ. This born again process of renewing my mind was synonymous with the new birth of baby Jesus, a child needing the pure milk of the Word of God for spiritual nourishment.
I can see the chaos of beginnings without form in Genesis and the night season before the birth of Jesus in life today. The night season is a time to follow your star in darkness with death around you, seeking your redeeming light, to sit at the feet of Jesus as He reveals to you His righteous right hand of judgement for your peace, provision, and protection. The symbol of life as we know it in 2020 is really birthing babies in darkness as living sacrifices. For Christians, the original meaning of the tree in our homes represents the eternal life we enjoy in Christ Jesus; and the lights are for His light in the midst of death and darkness. The trees of evergreen and fir are wood, symbolizing humanity, His birth in human form, and the honor we have for the Cross of Christ also made of wood. The tree is decorated in green, red, silver and gold. The green is everlasting life, red is the Blood of Jesus shed on the cross for our sins, the silver and gold are royalties fitting of the King Jesus. Defining moments are those in which you encounter revelation and direction that confuses your enemies but fulfill the prophecy of God’s purpose.
The bells ringing is to announce the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem, the hill country of Judas. The baby Jesus must be birthed in the right place. Divine connections are Heaven sent for the purpose of God and His plan. Holly and mistletoe are symbols of peace, joy, and kisses, though not widely practice today; the tinsel wrapped around the tree represents Jesus’ arms of love and peace wrapping around His children. The gifts under the tree are from wise men upon the celebrated birth of baby Jesus, and for His love and compassion shown to us. When you enter the house, you will see the baby Jesus, the vision of your assignment. The light of your revelation will make you worship the baby Jesus. We are positioning ourselves as living sacrifices for the plan and purpose of God. The gifts of frankincense and myrrh are very expensive anointing oils with a wonderful fragrance – an ingredient for sacrifice in worship. The three gifts: gold, speaks of His birth born as King; the frankincense, is the fragrance of life; and the myrrh represents the plan for His death; they are the gifts worthy of a King.
After seeing Jesus, the wise men were warned in a dream not to return the same way they came. Return not to your old fleshly being of self will but to allow the Holy Spirit to lead you down a new path according to His purpose and plan for your life. The death of Herod is the death of your enemies, those that are sent out by Satin to steal your faith, kill your hopes and dreams, then he would have destroyed your future. However, in Revelation, we learn the fight is fixed in Christ Jesus. When I feed my faith more than my fear, I win!
A child has been born for us. We have been given a son who will be our ruler. His name will be Wonderful Advisor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, and Prince of Peace, Isaiah 9:6. You will be a glorious crown, a royal headband for the Lord your God. Isaiah 62:3. They were thrilled and excited to see the star. When the men went into the house and say the child with Mary, his mother, they knelt down and worshiped him. They took out their gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh and gave them to him, Matthew 2:10-11. The Word became a human being and lived here with us. We saw his true glory, the glory of the only Son of the Father. From him the complete gifts of undeserved grace and truth have come down to us. John 1:14 CEV.
