Day 8: He Is Coming Again


GOD looked down at

HIS PERFECT CREATIONS

living in the

PERFECT GARDEN

and smiled and

maybe even let out a belly laugh,

and said,

"IT IS GOOD".

But then it wasn't so

GOOD,

as it took only one bite of the forbidden fruit

that dropped to the ground

to make what was

GOOD no longer GOOD.

GOD looked down at

the apple seeds that dropped into the ground,

to grow IMPERFECT into HIS WORLD.

BUT GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD

that HE sent another

SEED

that would grow

IN THE HEARTS

of

ALL who would CHOOSE

to

"Taste and see that the LORD is GOOD"

(Psalm 34:8)

instead of eating the LIES

of the crafty serpent,

who is alive and well

and STILL striving to tempt

GOD'S CHILDREN

away from their

CREATOR.

But he lost his power

the moment

THE SEED

was born

on that

Silent Night

under the STAR

that shone so brightly

to announce HIS BIRTH

that

would change the world,

FOREVER into BEYOND this world.

For GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD

that

ALL HE asks is

for you & I & everyone else

TO BELIEVE in

THE BABY

who came that night

to bring

GOODNESS back to the world.

So

what if your only CHOICE is to BELIEVE?

You see JESUS standing before you,

because HE didn't stay a BABY.

You look at HIS scars as HE reaches out HIS arms to you.

You hear HIS voice so clearly and you wonder if HE is speaking to you.

"COME".

And you wonder "where" is HE asking you to COME.

And then HE says it~

"TO ME".

You look behind you to see if HE is talking to someone else,

because why would HE be talking to you.

Doesn't HE know what you did or what you are doing now.

Because if HE really knew you, would HE be talking to you?

Yes, Yes & Yes.

And that is why HE says

"COME TO ME ALL."

ALL~

not just the good, or the better or the best.

It is just the you & me & everyone else,

for there is no discrimination

when it comes to

JESUS.

So what do you do?

Do you "COME" just as you are

or do you try to clean up your act first

and make yourself presentable?

You wait & listen to HIM because HE has more to say~

“Come to ME, ALL

who are weary & heavily burdened

[by religious rituals that provide no peace],

and I will give you rest [refreshing your souls with salvation].

Take My yoke upon you & learn

from ME [following ME as ME disciple],

for I am gentle and humble in heart,

& you will find rest [renewal, blessed quiet]

for your souls. For MY yoke is easy[to bear] and MY burden is light"(Matthew 11:28-30 AMP).

What if your only choice IS to BELIEVE?

What if the only

CHRISTMAS GIFT

is

WRAPPED in a box

with an

INVITATION

on the

GIFT TAG

that has your name clearly written on it

and the word

BELIEVE.

And all you have to do is to

COME

and pick up

THE GIFT,

because all you

really WANT

this very second

and in every second,

is in the box.

Because there

HE IS

for you to

RECEIVE

THE GIFT THAT KEEPS GIVING

beyond

CHRISTMAS DAY

because

THE GIFT

is

THE WHO you really NEED.

And now you understand it all.

You really get it.

For GOD'S INVITATION

is

JESUS INVITATION

for you to

COME

and

BELIEVE

so that

HE can

give you all that you

NEED in this very moment.

Because

JESUS doesn't stop

GIVING you what you NEED.

even if you don't have all that you want.

What do you NEED right now?

For on that starry night

JESUS CAME

and

JESUS is COMING again

to make all wrongs

PERFECTLY RIGHT.

Because

CHRISTMAS was just the open door

for JESUS to enter into our HEARTS.

For the story has just begun,

because

HE will

COME AGAIN

to take ALL who BELIEVE IN HIM

back to the

PERECT GARDEN

where there will no longer be

a crafty serpent

feeding lies.

So what is CHRISTMAS all about~

FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD

that HE won't leave it with an

apple with one bite~

"And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes,

and

there shall be no more death,

neither sorrow,

nor crying,

neither shall there be any more pain;

for the former things are passed away"

(Revelation 21:4).

Therefore,

make this

CHRISTMAS a CHRISTMAS you will never forget,

for you

WILL BELIEVE IN GOD'S FOREVER GIFT

of JESUS

today

tomorrow

and

into

FOREVER,

as HE continues

TO GIVE to you

ALL THAT YOU NEED,

until that day

when

HE WILL

"COME"*

again.
