God Here, Now!

One of the two most momentous times in all of human history occurred around two thousand years ago. God Almighty, in the Person of His Son, entered our world; our planet. Jesus was born of a virgin, born in Bethlehem. Jesus, in a supernaturally prepared body that was untouched by sin, was God in human flesh! This unprecedented reality was eloquently described by Charles Wesley in his well loved Christmas Carol, “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing!” He wrote: “Veiled in flesh, the God-Head see, hail th’ incarnate Deity! Pleased as man with men to dwell, Jesus, our Emmanuel.” This was exactly what Matthew was inspired to write: “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call His Name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us” (Mathew 1:23). Jesus, God here, now was the subject of a most unusual birth announcement: “And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night, and, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel of the Lord said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people, for unto you is born this day in the city of David, a Savior, which is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:8-11). Jesus, God with us! Deity inhabiting humanity, miracle of miracles! But, stop and think: God is here, now, in the lives of all who have received Jesus as Savior and Lord. He communicates with us today! Jesus spoke God’s Words to those He moved among while He was here. He is here, now! He is present in God’s Word! He is the key to the Word of God. It is all centered in Him! In the Person of the Holy Spirit, God (Jesus: God with us) speaks through Scripture! The Bible is the voice of God speaking to the heart of man. For all whom Christ does not indwell, God’s Word is printed information only. When one is born again, the Word speaks to him or her, Spiritually, as the voice of God! The message of the Bible is set on fire, and moves from information only to life transforming impact, in those with ears to hear and eyes to see. Selah! Unlike all other books, the Bible is alive with the Presence of God! Redeemed eyes and ears know that God is here, now! Do you see Him; can you hear Him? All who are born again will see and hear!    Ron
