DAILY MESSAGE

Yet another name ascribed to Jesus the Babe of Bethlehem in prophecy: “He shall be called Almighty God” – Isaiah 9:6. He who is omnipotent was willing to be reduced to a human span in a woman’s womb and take on humble, human form! Mystery and miracle combined in that condescending act. It is simply amazing that the second member of the trinity, the Son of God, willingly vacated that glorious form to take on the lowly figure of an infant human babe. Bow in wonder and worship at the infinite ability to perform such an outstanding to get inside and near you, become one with you that you may become one with Him. The blessed ultimate is that you can look forward to, the consequence of Christmas; you can be one with Him and finish up where He is with a glorified body in heaven. His almighty power is able to bring this about. He desires to be the Almighty in your life, proving there is nothing He cannot and will not do for you.

SACRED SONGS

Down from His Glory

In 1921, William Edmond Booth-Clibborn preached a successful tent revival in Lodi, California. Inspired by the results, Bro. Booth–Clibborn suggested that the revival party continue meetings further south and set up a tent in Holtville. After acquiring the necessary permits and lighting, they began services. Sadly, heavy rains and low attendance literally quenched the fiery services. Unable to pay the light bill for the week of disappointing meetings, Booth-Clibborn and his comrades took temporary jobs as field hands, harvesting corn. The evangelist, unused to such labour and forlorn by his failure, did little work. Finally, he sat down, crestfallen and dejected.

In this moment of self-pity, the Lord began to deal with him. As heavent-sent words began to flow in his spirit, Bro. Booth – Clibborn began to sing the words to one of the greatest anthems of the Apostolic Church: Down from His glory, Ever living story,

1/. Down from His glory,  Ever living story, My God and Savior came, And Jesus was His name.
Born in a manger, To His own a stranger, A Man of sorrows, tears and agony how I love Him! How I adore Him! My breath, my sunshine, my all in all!

Refrain

Oh how I love Him! How I adore Him, My Breath, my sunshine, my all in all!

The great Creator became my Saviour, And all God’s fulness dwelleth in Him.

2/.What condescension, Bringing us redemption; That in the dead of night, Not one faint hope in sight,
God, gracious, tender,  Laid aside His splendour, Stooping to woo, to win, to save my soul – refrain

3/. Without reluctance, Flesh and blood His substance He took the form of man,  Revealed the hidden plan.
O glorious myst’ry, Sacrifice of Calv’ry, And now I know Thou art the great “I AM” – refrain

QUOTES TO NOTE – CHRIST

“If God were our one and only desire we would not be so easily upset when our opinions do not find outside acceptance”  – Thomas A Kempis

DAILY MEDITATIONS

THE DIVINE HOME CALL – 2 Kings 2: 11, 12; Acts 1: 1-11

God’s servant, Elijah, must have been rather glad that his previous prayer had not been answered when he said to the Lord, “Let me die.” Things had seemingly gone badly for him and he wanted to quit the scene of time. The pressure had got to him and he felt that the best way out was to be removed from this world. But God was not going to allow him to finish up a failure and give his enemies the opportunity of gloating over his demise. He had something infinitely better prepared for him when his work was really finished.

This prophet was not going to the grave but to glory. The Lord had lined up for him a glorious exodus by providing a divine chariot to take him to heaven. What a wonderful home-call! He was not to terminate in depression under a juniper tree but to be escorted to his heavenly residence in a transport fitting a king. Everything was to end in triumph. The same could be said for Christ but He required no means of transport. He possessed the power to propel Himself beyond the skies into the presence of His Father. Angels and men witnessed his call home.

The day is going to be when there is to be a mass exodus and it involves all those who are true followers of Christ. Those who have died in Christ are to be raised and taken to their real eternal home at His return. Those alive, who are His true disciples, will also be caught up with these to share this blessing – 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18. Christ has already gone ahead to prepare for this event – John 14: 1-3. How important it is that you make absolutely certain that you will be in that great translation and exodus! As you make Christ Jesus your Saviour and Lord you will ensure your place in this experience when He comes again.
