WHEN MAN SHUTS HIS DOOR GOD OPENS HIS OWN
Is it not interesting that while there was no room in the inn, the animals created a way among them for the King of the Universe to be born?. Children of God, the animals were in attendance to witness the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. God made a way for Himself as every thing belongs to him. Since man closes his own door, then another one opens among other creatures. These other creatures heard his voice and made a way for Him. The angels also came down to meet the keeper of other animals in the field at night. These shepherds have the heart of God as they listen to animals, they also listen to God. The Bible tells us in Luke 2:8-14, “And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them, and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David, a Savior which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you,, Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel, a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace, good will toward men.”
We can see that God wanted to change our stiff-necked nature by sending His Son to us. Despite our nonchalant attitude not to create room for him in the inn, yet He found another source to announce the arrival of the Most High to planet earth by visiting the shepherds in the night and giving them details of where the child was (lying in a manger), the clothes he was wrapped in (swaddling clothes) and the reason for his coming (as a Savior unto all men). The host of heaven joined the angel that brought the good tidings to praise God for allowing Himself to come to the earth to bring Peace and good will unto all men. The Savior of the world is born this day in Bethlehem, in the city of David. What a wonderful way to fulfill his promises to man. He promised through his prophet Isaiah 9:6-7 which reads “For unto us a child is born, unto us, a Son is given, and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called, Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace, there shall be no end, upon the throne of David and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it, with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.” Another prophecy from prophet Daniel reads “And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed, and the kingdom shall never be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.(Daniel 2:44).
What we are witnessing at this time is the kingdom of God that is already among us and He has taught us all that we need to know so that we can be enrolled as members of his kingdom. He is the head of the government and all the names listed in Isaiah and many more have characterized his regime. He brought peace to the world and only those that allowed him into their lives can experience this peace. His first appearance to the world was to work within us and change our messed up heart. That is why when you create room for him, he abides in you and stays with you so that you don’t fall into the trap of the enemy again. This is why he came, died, resurrected and send his spirit into all mankind, into those who create room for Him. His second coming is to establish the kingdom with judgment and with justice. The Spirit of God in us is given to prepare us for this final coming, as it is written in John 16:8-11 which reads “And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin and of righteousness, and of judgment. Of sin, because they believe not on me. Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more. Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.”
I hope you are one of those that have created room for him. So many people have closed their mind to him because they don’t listen to him any more. Instead he is raising young and pure generation that can be a vessel of honor unto him. Since I don’t want him to bye pass me, I am crying unto him to come into me and use me. I am making myself available to be a vessel of honor in his hand. His kingdom has no end, therefore the second coming will weed out those ungodly ones, and only the righteous will be with him for ever. Is your name written in the Book of Life? Please make 2019 your year of dedicating yourself totally to his Lordship. The Lord will help us to follow through all the promises we are making for year 2019 in Jesus name, Amen. Merry Christmas and happy New year.
