Wake up Call from Jesus
Several weeks ago one of the board members of Jesuswithoutthejunk came to me and said, “You aren’t going to like this but the Holy Spirit gave me this word to give to you.” Through prayer that morning, I had been told that I was going to receive a word from the Lord that I was not going to like. I wasn’t going to like it because I was going to have to deliver it somehow. I knew as soon as I got it what I needed to do.
This is the word that was given:
“A call from Jesus. Please tell my people that I am not just a Christmas celebration. My people need help year round.”
That was the exact word I was given to release through this web site. Most of us are grown ups and we have trouble. In December we dress it up with Christmas plays, Christmas cookies, Christmas celebrations, etc. We love Christmas because it allows us to escape the hurts and pains that we have, some left from our childhood which that have never been addressed. The Spirit of Christmas is intoxicating, to say the least. Some of the Christmas carols are my favorite songs, especially “ O Holy Night.” It contains a line that says, “Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices!” That always makes me want to fall right down on the floor….before the Lord.
There was a time in my life that I dreaded Christmas because I didn’t like my life and who I had become. I would put on a smiley face and try to enjoy all of it, but then it would be over and I would feel let down and depressed through the month of January. It was the same every year until I met Christ. Now don’t get me wrong. I always had lots of good food, presents, etc. I loved to dress up and I would “put on” the happy face for all of the Christmas glitz. But then the party would be over, Christmas would be over, the decorations would be put up but then what?
The word given to us all this Christmas season is not to let Christmas just be in December. Let the Holy Spirit come into your heart and life so you don’t just have the Christmas Spirit once a year but all year. That way you can walk in a higher, happier way of life all year long with the Holy Spirit. It is not pretend ; it is real. It is waiting for you this year.
There is a way in a Manger and it is not a song we sing…stop and get off the merry-go-round…..maybe you need to ‘fall on your knees’.
God bless you and have a merry Christmas from one who finally got to find out what Christmas was all about….
