Jesus, Ruler Of Israel Was Born. - Bro. T. Stephen
My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, I greet and bless you in the name of our Creator, Maker, and ever unforgettable Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of Micha 5:2 “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, Though you are little among the thousands of Judah, Yet out of you shall come forth to Me, The One to be Ruler in Israel, Whose goings forth are from of old, From everlasting.”
My Dear Brothers And Sisters, from the above context we see how Jesus the king of kings and Lord of Lords, who created the whole universe came to be born in Bethlehem, a small village located in the “hill country” of Judah. It may be the same as it is in the Book of Micah as Bethlehem Ephrathah, which means “fertile. ” The Bible also calls it Beth-Lehem Judah, and in the New Testament we find it as the “City of David”. My dear children of God heaven had selected Bethlehem as the birth place of Jesus, who created the earth and heaven and all the things in this earth, and let the earth hang down in the space. The above verse says about Bethlehem, “Though you are small among all the villages, of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth the saviour of this world, and will come to me, the child who shall be the ruler of Israel. We see that the Big Lord Jesus the creator of the whole universe, was born in this little village called Bethlehem.
My Dear Brothers And Sisters, Long time back when we went to the Holy city, Israel, we found that all the churches were very empty and we used to spend a lot of time in the church. There was not much crowd. So we used to be there for hours and pray together. That was a wonderful experience. But now a days, the workers there push away the people as they were crowds of people coming there to see the birth place of Jesus from nations all over the world. So now a days we have to wait for long hours together in queue, to reach the birth place of Jesus. My dear children of God, if you have that Jesus who chose to be born in the manger, in the little village of Bethlehem, in your heart then you shall have real Christmas. Your Christmas celebration will be more meaningful, and colourful. A saint once said, “ If you have Jesus then you are a Hero, But without Jesus you are a zero.” Very true, Without Jesus you shall be an empty vessel, But with Jesus you shall be full, complete. ”
My Dear Brothers And Sisters, When you take this Jesus home with you then your children suffering from depression will be delivered. All your problems will be cleared. The spirit of poverty which lies at your doorstep, will flee away. All the work of the devil, that surrounds your family, your house will be nullified in the name of Jesus. Those of you who were in the darkness will receive the true Light. Once this Light enters your house, the doors of prosperity will be opened. You will secure that job which you were waiting for, You shall get the Visa to travel abroad. New and favourable doors will be opened, to you and your family. You shall experience new ventures in your business life. God will exalt you above others. You shall be at the top and not at the bottom. You shall lend to others and not borrow from others. All your debts will be cleared. You shall have plenty to eat, and you will praise the name of the Lord. God bless you.
Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord we thank you for being born in Bethlehem. We pray that You be born in our hearts too. Make us rich in You Lord. Let the Light of God expel all darkness from our lives and let the beauty of Jesus be seen in us.
