From the Highest of Heavens
“Some say we are in the Christmas season, but I say, God is never out of season. People sometimes take Him out of the box in December, put Him back in the box in January and leave Him there until Easter.
This is a reminder… as we celebrate the birth of Christ with family and friends; let us also take this time to reflect on our worship of Him throughout the year.
“The one who comes from above is above all; the one who is from the earth belongs to the earth, and speaks as one from the earth. The one who comes from heaven is above all”. John 3:31
And the Lord God Almighty said, “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are too small to be among the army groups from Judah, from you will come one who will rule Israel for me. He comes from very old times, from days long ago.” Micah 5:2
In the highest of heavens,
Even, the heavens above the heavens,
The Most High sits on the glorious throne of the Lord God Almighty.
In the beginning and from Your splendid throne…
Before the equation of time became measurable,
…You Were God…
Before the flawless design of endless space
Before cosmic matter came into being
…You were present…
Before God-breathed humanity was fashioned
Before NOTHING at ALL! …You Were…
And Even before all of this, my name…,
…MY NAME… was on your lips,
And my soul? MY SOUL? It was on your mind.
And love for me was in your heart,
Because? You Were…
And in that highest of heavens,
And at your right hand, sat your Son, Jesus,
with the Plan for my soul.
—You whispered my name—
And He said, “I’ll go!”
Then from that highest of heavens,
Down through the endless space,
in His measured time,
Brushing aside celestial spaces
and to save humanity…
In flesh, thru a virgin birth, He came…
And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth John 1:14
Here in the month of December, we celebrate the physical birth of the Lord Jesus Christ. But today isn’t His birthday, and neither is December the 25th. For we celebrate NOT the day He came, but THAT He Came!
Some ask, was it real? I say my friends, yes, His Birth was indeed real and He is indeed real.
Can you imagine God whispering to Jesus,
the names of EVERYONE ever created in His image? …
Even before the world existed?
God whispered Your name…Then He came…
