Seasons Greetings 2019

A Very Happy Christmas to readers of my blog, your families and friends.

 
From the Bible –
 
2 Corinthians 8 v 9: “For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that ye through His poverty might be rich.”
 
 
A Christmas Carol –
 
Thou Who wast rich beyond all splendour,
All for love’s sake becamest poor;
Thrones for a manger didst surrender,
Sapphire-paved courts for stable floor.
Thou Who wast rich beyond all splendour,
All for love’s sake becamest poor.
 
Thou Who art God beyond all praising,
All for love’s sake becamest man;
Stooping so low, but sinners raising
Heav’nwards by Thine eternal plan.
Thou Who art God beyond all praising,
All for love’s sake becamest man.
 
Thou Who art love beyond all telling,
Saviour and King, we worship Thee.
Emmanuel, within us dwelling,
Make us what Thou wouldst have us be.
Thou Who art love, beyond all telling,
Saviour and King, we worship Thee.
 
Frank Houghton, 1894-1972.

He Came; He Is Coming
 
This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. (Acts 1:11)
 
Many are celebrating our Lord’s first coming this day; let us turn our thoughts to the promise of His second coming. This is as sure as the first advent and derives a great measure of its certainty from it. He who came as a lowly man to serve will assuredly come to take the reward of His service. He who came to suffer will not be slow in coming to reign.
 
This is our glorious hope, for we shall share His joy. Today we are in our concealment and humiliation, even as He was while here below; but when He cometh it will be our manifestation, even as it will be His revelation. Dead saints shall live at His appearing. The slandered and despised shall shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Then shall the saints appear as kings and priests, and the days of their mourning shall be ended. The long rest and inconceivable splendour of the millennial reign will be an abundant recompense for the ages of witnessing and warring.
 

Oh, that the Lord would come! He is coming! He is on the road and traveling quickly. The sound of His approach should be as music to our hearts! Ring out, ye bells of hope!

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, 
that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, 
but have everlasting life” (John 3 v 16).
