The Promised One

Isa 9:6 For to us a child is born……….Jesus-Christ-The-Messiah

Wow it’s December 2014 already, we can of course exclaim “ where did the year go ?”. What makes this December so special it is is a Bonanza December as we have a double celebration.

One, as we celebrate the gift of the man – child in unity throughout the world we with one voice and acclaim celebrate Jesus; Savior, Life Giver, Lord and Master what a joyous occasion.

Isa 9:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace

TyandNicResizedCropped We also celebrate the gift of Tyrone and Nicole Daniel, who are a gift to the nations called, commissioned and sent by Jesus.

As we prepare for the Christmas celebration and all that it brings, let us with the same enthusiasm prepare for our local GTT ( Geographical Training Time) in Ontario, when the saints will gather from their various local churches in unity to celebrate this gift from the Father, build friendships, celebrate one another. As the host for this event, we would endeavor to become “the Bridge ” to those that are venturing from far and wide to celebrate in unity…. Jesus.

Over this double festive season it is a great opportunity to live out  Gal 6:2 Bear one anothers’ burdens. Let us reveal the compassion of Christ, not only by giving a gift but to be a gift to someone.

Again I am reminded of the words of Clay Aikens song “When you kiss your baby you kiss the face of God”……. if we can pause for a moment to consider Christmas, the import of our GTT; not just the baby child but the awesome revelation that this sleeping child is “The Great I Am”.she-shall-bring-forth-a-son_llswindle
