(December 16) Ed Delph shares a Christmas thought-provoker…
1. Here’s a Christmas-linked thought. ‘I opened two gifts this morning. They were my eyes.’
2. Here’s a Christmas-linked question: ‘What good is sight without light?’
Sight requires light. The same is true with insight.
Insight requires the light of revelation
A definition of revelation is when something that was or is hidden in darkness comes into the light. It’s a ‘reveal-a-tion’ and it could be physical, mental or spiritual.
Prophesies from God’s prophets given 750 years before the birth of Christ were fulfilled in the birth of Christ at Bethlehem.
Please read the account described in the first two chapters of Matthew and Luke…
- Suddenly light appeared, leading to the revealing of the presence of the greatest ever freely given ‘Christmas present.’
- Information given 750 years earlier became revelation.
- Knowledge became understanding.
- The ‘Word of God’ became the ‘God of the Word’ now in flesh appearing.
- Truth hidden by time and darkness became truth highlighted by the light.
- Chronos (progression of time) became kairos (the right time) – the future became the present.
