A New Christmas Series:
CHRISTMAS; “Opening the Seven Gifts of Jesus.”
This Sunday; “The gift of a WARRIOR!”
It is not often that we think about the title that Jesus holds in the Heavenly places; “Commander of the Army of the LORD OF HOSTS”. And certainly when we think of the manger in Bethlehem and the humble nature of the Christ child, visions of a warrior escape us.
But make no mistake about it. Jesus Christ is a warrior of unparalleled proportions. This was acknowledged repeatedly in the scriptures when demons identified his superior power over them, and His true identity. "What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are--the Holy One of God!" Mark 1:24
During his time here on earth He constantly had his angels available to honor Him with their service. They appear to restore Him after the temptations in the wilderness; “Then the devil left him, and angels came and began to serve him.” Matthew 4:11 and at His command legends of Angels would instantly perform whatever task their commander requested; “Do you think I cannot call on my Father and He will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels?” Matthew 26:53
The babe in the manger reflected the amazingly humble nature of Jesus. He would do whatever it would take to restore mankind to their lost position in Heaven. But make no mistake about it, He came as a Warrior to free us from ourselves and the Devil who ensnared us.
Join us this week as we explore the impact of this dynamic truth!
