There is celebration in my honour
People shopping for gifts big and small
“For unto us a child is born…….”
but...., there is talk about another flying in on reindeer from the North Pole?!
All over the world everyone’s talking
That day is here the question is ‘Are we ready?’
Ready for what…you ask, remember the ten virgins and their little ‘ole lamps, some were wise, some were not
It is a birthday and we think, cakes, sweets and all that’s nice to eat.
So where is the celebrant in all the joyful cheer, hustle and bustle?
He is forgotten, His due place disregarded nor is He given due recognition
Ho! Ho! Ho!....Santa Clause is coming to town!!!!
Remember the three wise men
They came, they saw and worshiped
They increased in wisdom as they fell not for King Herod’s wiles and cunning to destroy the child-King and derail destiny of the whole of the human race
They went home fulfilled and rejoicing
There is cunning of a king Herod of our time...confusion in whose birthday it is
Are you cutting the cake in His stead?
Are you partying, giving and receiving gifts
The red and white sock on the mantelpiece, the red and white long furry hat, a sign of the season and the time
Do not get carried away in the moment and the activity
Dinner with family: turkey, mixed flavored-jollof rice, baked potatoes….so many things to do, a flurry of activities
You feel a reason to share goodwill during this yuletide season (the only time during the year that you are actually nice, anyway )
Be active in sharing the true story of the remembrance
The Birth of Jesus Announced
ISAIAH: 49: 3 and, ISAIAH: 49: 6.
In ISAIAH: 9: 2, 6
ISAIAH: 42: 1-7
Do not make Him declare it Himself …saying;
Happy birthday to me
Happy birthday to me
Happy birthday dear …….JESUS CHRIST!
Really! The Lord! ...... He can raise stones to replace you in the work…would you have that?
Go tell it on the mountains,
over the hills and everywhere
That Jesus Christ is born
Happy birthday to you Lord,
thanks for coming to save mankind!
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
