The well known song, “O Come Let
Us Adore Him” has been a favorite of many believers
years. What better time of year to remember those poignant words
than at Christmastime when we celebrate Christ’s birth? But these
are words we should meditate upon every day.
Only He—the Lord God Almighty is
worthy of adoration. But we live in a world where so
over-the-top recognition of whatever it is that they are trying to
achieve. Celebrity status is
king in this world. The Creator and mighty King of the universe is
pushed aside or forgotten all together far too often. Recognition
for a job well done is one thing, but striving
to be a “big deal” is
taking recognition too far.
In another great classic, we hear
the words, “Oh Come all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant,
O Come ye, oh come ye...”
Our Messiah, the King of kings
and Lord of Lords reigns over all the universe. Bible prophecy is
unfolding each day, and the great and mighty day when the shout of
the archangel calls us home is fast approaching. How worthy He is,
our great and merciful Savior to be given our undivided attention
The word “triumphant” used in the
song “Oh Come All Ye Faithful” strongly depicts God’s majesty and
power. In the book of Revelation God is exceedingly triumphant! It
is in that great book where Jesus’ greatest triumph is portrayed.
God’s blessings are mentioned
seven times in Revelation and the Lord’s overwhelming victory is
illustrated and emphasized. It
is one of the most exciting books in the Bible.
It is in that last, final book of the Bible wherein we are given the
promise of the Lord’s Second Coming and the dawn of His literal
1000-year reign on earth—as He ushers in the millennial kingdom, the
time of true peace and prosperity.
It is in Revelation that we are given the assurance that the Jewish
Messiah—the Lord Jesus Christ—defeats His blasphemous enemies—Satan
himself, the Antichrist, the False Prophet and all the enemy nations
who gather together against Him at Armageddon.
It is in the great last book of the Bible, The Revelation of Jesus
Christ, that the devil is finally defeated and destroyed for all
eternity. In Revelation we see at long last the final vestiges of
Satan’s dominion over planet Earth destroyed, and humanity forever
freed from the tyranny of Satan’s strongholds.
But before the final curtain
is drawn, before the Lord Jesus—the King of kings and Lord of lords
rescues planet Earth, the Christ-rejecting world will feel the
powerful impact of God Almighty’s wrath—when He sends His Revelation
When Jesus returns, He comes as a mighty warrior. He will destroy the
tyrannical hordes and
take with Him those who have placed their faith in Him into the
millennial kingdom where life will be more like He originally
It is in the book of Revelation that the last and final words of the
Lord Jesus are given to His creation. It is the consummation marking
the completion of the cannon of Scripture (Rev. 22:19).
Jesus is totally triumphant, beyond measure. And those of us
who are part of His Church will partake in His greatest triumph when
we return with Him at His Glorious Appearing at the Second Coming.
The year 2016 has been exceptional—historically, politically and
spiritually. God has shown us tremendous mercy with His all-powerful
might—pushing back the godless masses who work relentlessly to
destroy our great nation and take away our freedoms. Glory to God in
the highest! He has shown His good will toward men, and especially
to His faithful. Luke said it this way in relation to Christ’s
to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men”
The time in which we now live could be the lull before the great
storm of the prophesied seven-year Tribulation: “When they are
saying, ‘Peace and safety, then sudden destruction cometh upon them,
as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall in no wise
escape’” (1 Thessalonians 5:3).
The globalists are not going away. They are going to keep pushing
their ominous agenda, which is
to gain total power and control of every man, woman and child. At
some point their covert one world government will become an overt
in-your-face dictatorial nightmare ruled by that one man who will
present himself as the savior of mankind—the Antichrist himself, the
son of perdition (2 Thessalonians 2:3). Only those who are genuinely
saved before the Rapture will escape that time of hell on earth.
Prophecy will be fulfilled as it is written. But for now, we have a
glimmer of leadership in
our country which has been sorely lacking. We have a
controversial president-elect who has the amazing chutzpah to stand up against the dark
forces of the globalists who are hell-bent
on turning all of
humanity into mindless robots.
We see many signs of this demonic agenda in the form of brainwashed
paid “protestors” and cry babies—the useful idiots working on behalf
of the globalist mafia whether they know it or not. They are
all Satan’s representatives, and foolishly think they will not be
held accountable for their deeds.
But no man can or will escape accountability to God. Every person
will one day confess and bow before King Jesus:
“For it is written, ‘As I live, saith the Lord, to me every knee
shall bow, And every tongue shall confess to God”’ (Romans 14:11).
The president-elect is a true friend of Israel and the sooner the
anti-Israel, anti-America “president” who now occupies the White
House leaves—the better. Even now Obama is
working against Israel with
the UN in his last days in “power.” This is one of the latest
headlines (Dec. 23, 2016) on the matter, extracted from the
Times of Israel:
“Choosing Not to Veto, Obama Lets
Anti-settlement Resolution Pass at UN Security Council.”
Obama’s stance is nothing less than standing with the Palestinians
and other Muslims who wish
to see Israel wiped off the
face of the earth. He is on the wrong side of history. He is
not taking steps to protect Israel; he is deliberately going
We should not be surprised. Obama has repeatedly worked against
Israel as I detail in my current book,
Israel’s Guaranteed Future
Glory. Apparently, he had to complete his eight years of failed
foreign policy with a final blow against the Israelis.
Israel will never be destroyed and the globalists, including the
sitting president will be held accountable for their contemptible
behavior against God’s chosen people and nation. All pro-Israel
Christians know anyone who works against Israel will incur God’s
will bless those who bless you, and the one whocurses
you I will[curse.
And in you all
the families of the earth will be blessed.”
As we reflect upon our many blessings in our great nation at
Christmastime, we should be encouraged knowing that the King of
kings will soon intervene and put an end to the godless rants of
those who are so eagerly willingly to do Satan’s bidding.
We must fervently pray for Israel, for Donald Trump and all those
who stand with Israel. The president-elect’s life is most certainly
in danger. John F. Kennedy was assassinated because he would not go
along with the agenda of the globalists. The same sinister crowd is
at work today.
In the book of Revelation the overriding message given to John by
our Lord Jesus Christ is to
Come to Him—His heart cries out to anyone who is willing to hear
Him. He is at the door knocking and ready to enter into a personal
relationship with all those who will receive Him.
“Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear my voice and
open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he
with me” (Revelation 3:20).
Spirit and the bride say, Come. And he that heareth, let him say,
Come. And he that is athirst, let him come: he that will, let him
take the water of life freely” (Revelation 22:17).
The manner in which the above passage reads seems to have a melodic
tone. It is an appeal for all to
Come to Jesus and partake
freely of the water of life. Jesus is the Water of Life and only
through Him can we be sustained. The word
Come is again repeated in
the verse, encouraging all to come to Him.
Christ is the Living Water which everyone needs not only to have a
fruitful life on earth, but to be saved for all eternity.In
the spirit of Christmas, as blood-bought children of God we can
enter joyfully into His Presence through prayer and truly express
our adoration of Him any time. “For where two or three have gathered
together in My name,I am
there in their midst” (Matthew 18:20).
In Revelation 22:16-17 Jesus says:
“I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify
unto you these things
churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright, the
And the Spirit and the bride say, Come.
And he that heareth, let him say, Come. And he that is athirst, let
him come: he that will, let him take the water of life freely.”
Revelation 22:16, Jesus
Himself asserts and confirms that it is He who sentHis angel to
John to reveal the things which he wrote down—so he could convey
these things to the churches:
“I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify
unto you these thingsfor
the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright,
the morning star.”
This is the very same Jesus (God-Man) who in His humanity is the
“root and offspring of David”—a descendant of David. But Jesus in
His deity is the Shekinah Glory, the visible light
of the morning star. The
morning star appears just before daybreak. So as it rises before the
break of day so will Christ appear as “the bright and morning star.”
Christ is the Morning Star who will descend with a shout when He
comes to claim His Bride in the Rapture of the Church. And at His
Glorious Appearing at the Second Coming, He comes again as the
Morning Star to finish His work on earth and usher in the
magnificent millennial and eternal ages—the dawning of
the new age (literally) and not a false utopia which the New
Age movement has proclaimed.
