SCRIPTURE: …she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS. Matthew 1:25
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The birth of Jesus came to break every natural and unnatural barrier to the fulfilment of God’s purpose and agenda for your life.
I wish you a merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year in advance!
However, the question one may like to ask is: what is Christmas?
Christmas is the annual commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ by His followers called Christians all over the world. It is the most celebrated event in the history of the world.
The Scripture makes it clear in the Book of Matthew Chapters 1 and 2 that the birth of our Master Jesus, the Saviour of the world, was not a normal or ordinary birth as it defied and bypassed natural orders and protocols (Matthew 1:1-18).
Now, let us x-ray some of the mysteries that surrounded the birth of Jesus Christ.
1. The mystery of unnatural conception: This was a conception that happened without the meeting of a man and a woman (Matthew 1:18).
2. The mystery of incarnation: This is not reincarnation but incarnation. It is the mystery of God becoming man (John 1:14).
3. The birth of Christ was the mystery that changed the order of history and the arrangement of calendar. Everything that happened before Christ was born is dated B.C and everything that happened subsequently is dated A.D.
4. The mystery of Jesus’ birth had great impacts on nature and creation. It was the star that announced and recorded His birth (Matthew 2:2).
Christmas, the birth of Jesus, therefore, came to break every natural and unnatural barrier to the fulfilment of God’s purpose and agenda for your life.
On this special day, I prophesy to you the impartation of all that the birth of Jesus carries. The end of every frustrating situation in your life has come, in Jesus’ Name.
REMEMBER THIS: The birth of Jesus came to break every natural and unnatural barrier to the fulfilment of God’s purpose and agenda for your life.
1. Passionately ask God to make the mystery of the birth of Jesus Christ real in your life.
2. Look beyond the limitations around, see and declare what you want to see through Christ Jesus.
PRAYER: Lord Jesus, I thank You for Your birth to save humanity. Father, I make demands on this day that the mystery behind the birth of Your Son, Jesus Christ unravel every mystery around my life and destiny, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
