Merry Christmas!

From full post

Two Christmas testimonies, shared to glorify God through your enrichment:

1.  God put it on our hearts to send a certain family money in the mail.  We did. Days went by and we did not hear from the family.  I sent a text.  But look how this unfolded.  The family reports that they were gathered around the dinner table with their bills laid out before them, wondering what on earth they were going to do because they did not have the resources needed to get by.  An unexpected expense had presented itself, leaving them incapable of caring for themselves.  As they discussed the problem, resolving that there was no way out of the dilemma, my text chimed in, ‘Check the mail lately?  Kisses to you – Merry Christmas.’  They sent their 5-year old out to check the mail and he brought back the card we sent which included the money they needed.  They said that everyone sat dumbfounded, in awesome wonder at God, and that they continue to give Him praise for the love He showed them.  Imagine, the help was on the way to them before the unexpected expense presented itself, before they even knew they had a God-sized need.

Isaiah 65:24, ‘Before they call I will answer;
while they are yet speaking, I will hear’ …”

“Merry Christmas!

We’ve been praying that Christ would break through everyone’s dark and smelly places (likened to a manger with wild beasts), granting your hearts and spheres of influence a fresh dose of Jesus…

…The mantle is to be utilized for protection from harsh weather conditions, as a shield from hazardous situations (attack, fire, arrows, etc.), as a blanket through cold nights and on and on goes the very practical uses for said outer, plain-sight, cherished garment…”

Is God offering you a fresh mantle (more through “full post” link)?

Bonded Branch

From full post

“If you’re looking for a shallow, feel-good Christmas message this is not it.  Christ appeared in the dark & smelly place (manger) so that He could then serve all mankind Father-God’s help.

Got stink?  Don’t be ashamed!  That sense of discomfort is God’s Light breaking through your dark’ to help.

Here you will find deep fulfillment and an escape from the pressures of Christmas chaos.  It’s a costly getaway at a whopping 79 minutes, but a very wise investment.  Shall the hustle and bustle dictate how you invest?

What the fleshly nature calls freedom God calls bondage…and what God calls a bond the fleshly nature calls oppression.

Jer. 6:10, ‘To whom shall I speak and give warning, that they may hear?  Behold, their ears are uncircumcised, they cannot hear.  Behold, the word of the LORD is offensive to them; they find no pleasure in it.’

Bonded Branch, 79 minutes.
(I tried to clean it up, but I incorrectly used the term ‘core belief’ numerous times instead of the intended term ‘core value.’  Sincerely, Mr. Manger.)

Thank you for your love, prayers, encouragement and support.  God assures you that placing His Kingdom first grants you access to ‘all these things’ that others give their lives for.  By faith, accept ‘all these things!’  May Christ’s light break through your darknest night during this Christmas season! …”

At Zoar Free Lutheran Church

Excerpt from full post

“…The clapping of heaven caught up to us during the evening meeting [where I was their guest speaker].  Serving Christ’s Bride at Zoar Free Lutheran Church was a heavenly birthday present to us. Perhaps, with your imagination, you can see through the following pictures how we felt celebrated in the Lord.  The people were soooo welcoming, warm, supportive and loving!  There is a link between the pictures to the message that was relayed…” (click “full post” link to see/hear)
