The Christ child was born on the earth as the light of the world. This was a human and God intervention. His existence was and is from the eternals of heaven. He is interwoven as Elohiym (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). The beauty of his light was evident to all who saw him. The whole earth sensed and knew of his existence. All of creation and the cosmos jubilantly declared his arrival. The total essence of who he is overcomes ones earthly understanding. He LIVED amongst us. The air he breathed flowed down from heaven filling everything with abundance of life. Every spoken living word, wherever his foot trod, and every touch was filled to the overflow of electrified life as far as the east is to the west, and the north is to the south, from the center of heaven to the center of the earth.
Humanity had every opportunity while he lived on earth to embrace him, to learn from his teachings, to connect and understand that he was God come in the flesh to deliver them from every sin. They did not sense that he was the deliverer who would restore them to their Garden of Eden divine relationship. The Living Word stood within their presence and they knew him not. They saw miracles, they saw that he shone like the sun, they observed how he daily communed with the Father and did as the Father directed, however; after all of this demonstration they still doubted, feared, stood in unbelief, and they even rejected, scorned, and crucified Him.
After all his suffering, pain, shed blood, and death their eyes suddenly opened only after the earthquakes, curtains in the temple ripping in half, darkness on the earth for many hours, and many other manifestations. With all of their rejections, persecution, and torment he spoke not a word other than to say, “Father forgive them for they know not what they do.” His mercy, grace, humility, and sacrifice cannot be put into words.
Three days after his death and burial, he arose bursting forth like the sun. He got the keys to hell and the grave. He restored our relationship to God once more. He conquered death. He took on His heavenly eternal garment of Elohiym and His mantle shining brighter than the sun. To his disciples and all humanity, he was unrecognizable. After he arose, he preformed great and mighty unbelievable works. He gave his disciples a great commission. (Matthew 28:18-20) Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Amen!
Christ triumphed over the world and all of its evil. After 40 days, Jesus ascended into heaven leaving us the Holy Spirit. In John 16: 5-11 (Amplified Bible) it states; “But now I am going to Him who sent Me; and none of you asks Me, ‘Where are You going?’ But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your hearts [and taken complete possession of them]. But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the] Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby) will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him (the Holy Spirit) to you [to be in close fellowship with you]. And He, when He comes, will convict the world about [the guilt of] sin [and the need for a Savior], and about righteousness, and about judgment: about sin [and the true nature of it], because they do not believe in Me [and My message]; about righteousness [personal integrity and godly character], because I am going to My Father and you will no longer see Me; about judgment [the certainty of it], because the ruler of this world (Satan) has been judged and condemned.
Let us totally embrace the Holy Spirit developing relationship with Him. Do not miss your opportunity to live in and through him while we have him in our midst. Cherish the gift of the Holy Spirit. There is NO other better gift. Shalom – children of God! SEE How He Ascended!
