John 3:16-17

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him"

 

Rejoice

 

Rejoice, for the divine Lord hath bestowed upon us His one and only begotten son, a gift of immeasurable magnitude, bestowed upon all of humanity. Behold, witness the extraordinary phenomenon, for it is divine in nature. The alignment of planets and stars, meticulously orchestrated by the hand of God, heralded the birth of Jesus, the chosen one. This celestial arrangement, purposefully designed, served as a beacon of divine intervention, ensuring the fulfillment of ancient prophecies and the arrival of the True Savior. I shall grant myself the privilege of witnessing his presence, albeit not in this moment; I shall gaze upon him, yet from a distance; a celestial body shall emerge from the lineage of Jacob, ascending from the realm of Israel. Behold, a prophecy from the divine scriptures, Numbers 24:17.

In the wake of the celestial conjunctions that transpired prior to the birth of Christ, the Three Wise Men, Three Kings, were bestowed with divine insight, enabling them to perceive the unfolding of an extraordinary phenomenon. Supreme above all, the celestial alignments of the planets and stars, which transpired during the sacred moment of Jesus' birth, an extraordinary occurrence that arises but once in a millennium and is unlikely to manifest anew, were divinely ordained to signify the destined course and unequivocal validation of the prophecy heralding the arrival of a new Messiah. After this momentous occasion, the Three Kings, guided by their divine intuition, embark on a sacred pilgrimage to seek out the resplendent celestial body adorning the heavens, with the sole purpose of bestowing their reverential homage upon the auspicious New King. Behold, the inquiry is made, for the one who is destined to be born as the divine ruler of the Jewish people. Behold, we have beheld his celestial beacon in the orient and shall journey forth to pay homage unto him. “In the sacred scriptures of Mathew 2:2, it is written: "Where is he who has been born king of the Jews”.

 

Behold, the wondrous spectacle that unfolded upon the birth of Jesus, the long-awaited Messiah. The celestial realm itself adorned the heavens with a resplendent star, radiating unparalleled brilliance, a celestial beacon heralding the arrival of a miraculous and transcendent event. Behold, as the prophecy was indeed fulfilled, the divine manifestation of God's essence emerged into existence. From the humblest of mortals to the most esteemed of nobles, they all converged to pay homage to the divine being. Three wise kings, guided by celestial wisdom, presented unto the newborn King their sacred offerings. A gift of precious gold, symbolizing the majestic sovereignty that resides within Him. An offering of fragrant frankincense, signifying the reverence and adoration bestowed upon His divine presence. And lastly, a bestowment of myrrh, representing the profound purpose that has been divinely ordained for Him. "Behold, a multitude did present unto the holy city of Jerusalem their humble offerings, dedicated unto the divine presence of the LORD, and bestowed upon Hezekiah, the anointed king of Judah, precious treasures of great worth." (2 Chronicles 32:23) And lo, the moment arrived when they unfurled their treasures, offering unto him gifts of purest gold, fragrant frankincense, and sacred myrrh, as befitting his divine presence. (Matthew 2:11)

In the realm of Bethlehem, where the divine light of Jesus graced the earthly plane, the humble shepherds were bestowed with a celestial message from the ethereal Angel Gabriel. They were commanded to embark upon a sacred pilgrimage, to pay homage and offer their devotion to the one and only true Messiah. When the celestial beings departed from their presence and ascended to the heavens, the humble shepherds communed amongst themselves, proclaiming, 'Let us embark upon a pilgrimage to Bethlehem, that we may bear witness to this extraordinary occurrence, as foretold by the Almighty.' and lo, they hastened forth and discovered Mary and Joseph, alongside the divine infant, who lay nestled within the humble manger. In the sacred scripture of Luke, chapter 2, verses 15-16, it is written: "And it came to pass”.

 

In the realm of divine splendor and boundless grace, the King of Kings, in a display of unparalleled magnificence, chose to descend upon this mortal plane, gracing a humble stable with His presence. This sacred occurrence, a beacon of profound significance, should serve as an eternal turning point in our mortal existence, inspiring us to embrace righteousness and embody goodness in all facets of our lives. His divine odyssey has unveiled His eternal love and invincible covenant, affirming His omnipresence, omnipotence, and omnibenevolence. Such divine assurance should undoubtedly bestow upon us boundless bliss. As the sacred season of Christmas draws near, let us, as devout followers of the divine, engage in deep contemplation and hold dear this profound truth. Let us wholeheartedly embrace the unwavering faith bestowed upon us by the Almighty. As a divine manifestation of God's boundless love, it is imperative that we bestow upon those who hold significance in our lives an unwavering abundance of time, assistance, love, and compassion. For they, being of immeasurable value, surpass any material offerings that this earthly realm may possess.
