Christmas Meditation 1

Political and social unrest dominate the news , and economic distress grips the entire world. People are easily overcome with a sense of hopelessness and fear. As we approach Christmas this year, it seems appropriate to refocus our attention on the reason we celebrate at all. Christ entered history in times like ours: the Mediterranean world was under the occupation of the brutal Roman Empire. Corruption and abuse abounded. Taxes were high, the common man oppressed, the ruling powers capricious and often malevolent. Citizens were disillusioned; the nation of Israel had lost sight of their calling, having lost sight of the God Who had called them. The effects of wide-spread paganism were superstition, devaluation of life, and a lack of natural affection among men.

I wish to offer you, over ...

Christmas Meditation 2

That He gave His only begotten Son:

A twig comes forth from the stem of Jesse, and a Branch from his roots shall be fruitful. The Spirit of YHWH rests upon Him: the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the YHWH; He delights in the fear of the Lord. He shall not judge after the sight of His eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of His ears, but with righteousness shall He judge the poor, and corrects with equity the meek of the earth, and He shall strike the earth with the rod of His mouth and with the breath of His lips shall He slay the wicked. And righteousness shall be the belt of His loins and faithfulness the belt of His heart.” Is 11:1

“But you Bethlehem Ephratah, little among the thousands of Judah; from you shall He come forth for Me, to be ruler in Israel, and his goings-forth are from of old, from the days of eternity.” Micah 5:2

“And she brought forth her firstborn son, and swaddled Him and laid Him in a manger because there was no room for them in the inn.

And shepherds were in the same region, staying in the field, and keeping night-watch over their flock. And lo, an angel of the Lord stood by them, and glory of the Lord shone around them, and they feared a great fear. And the angel said unto them, “Fear not! For look, I bring you good news of great joy, which shall be to all people. For to you was born today a Saviour Who is Christ the Lord, in the city of David...

Christmas Meditation 4

“In the beginning was the Word. And the Word was with God, and the Word was God. This same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made.

In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness comprehended it not. John 1:1-5

There was a man sent from God whose name was John. This same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was to bear witness of that Light, that was the True Light which enlightens everyone who comes into the world. John 1:6-9 

That whosoever believes on Him should not perish, but have  everlasting life.           

“He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, ...

Christmas Meditation 8

“Behold My servant whom I have chosen, my Beloved in whom My soul is well-pleased. I will put My Spirit upon Him, and He shall show judgement to the Gentiles.

He shall not strive nor cry, neither shall any man hear His voice in the streets. A bruised reed shall He not break, and smoking flax shall He not quench, till He send forth judgment unto victory.

And in His name shall the Gentiles trust.     Matthew 12:18-21

 

Surely He has borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows, yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon Him, and with His bruise are we healed.

All of us like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way, and the YHWH lays upon H...
