THE MYSTERY OF THE BIRTH OF CHRIST
By DIGC25 December 2020
The birth of Jesus defied and bypassed natural order; it suspended the protocol of nature to achieve Kingdom purpose.
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 defied and bypassed natural order; it suspended the protocol of nature to achieve Kingdom purpose.
I wish you a merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year in advance!
We thank God for the Gift of His only begotten Son who was born and died for us (John 3:16). Today marks the anniversary of the birth of Jesus Christ which is called Christmas.
Christmas is what many people celebrate, yet many don’t know what it really is or the essence of it.
So, the question is: what is Christmas?
Christmas is the annual commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ by His followers called Christians all over 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 birth as it defied and bypassed natural orders and protocols (Matthew 1:1-18).
Now, we shall look at some of the mysteries that surrounded the birth of Jesus Christ.
- The mystery of unnatural conception: This is a conception that happens without the meeting of a man and a woman (Matthew 1:18). The birth of Jesus defied and bypassed natural order; it suspended the protocol of nature to achieve kingdom purpose.
- The mystery of incarnation: This is not reincarnation but incarnation. It is the mystery of God becoming man (John 1:14).
- 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 BC and everything that happened subsequently is dated A.D.
- The mystery of Jesus’ birth had great impact on nature and creation. It was the star that announced and recorded His birth (Matthew 2:2).
Christmas, the birth of Jesus has, therefore, come to break every natural and unnatural barrier to the fulfillment 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 has to offer. The end of every frustrating situation in your life has come, in Jesus’ Name.
REMEMBER THIS: The birth of Jesus defied and bypassed natural order; it suspended the protocol of nature to achieve Kingdom purpose.
- Passionately ask God to make the mystery of the birth of Jesus Christ real in your life.
- Make up your mind to intensify your passion for God in this season.
PRAYER: Lord Jesus, I thank You for Your birth to save humanity. Father, I demand on this day that the mystery behind the birth of Your Son, Jesus Christ be made real in my life and destiny Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
