Weekly Watch Focus: Christmas Glory Shine!

Friday, December 23, 2016—“When the Wise Men from the East saw the Young Child with Mary His mother, they fell down and worshipped Him.” This Christmas season we release a fresh spirit of worship and praise to the King of Glory. We pray the fragrance of His glory permeate our homes, Churches, and our cities.

At this time where many nations have been under attack from the demonic spirit of radical Islamic terrorism— may the radiance of the Glory of Christ the King bring peace on earth, goodwill toward men. May the Holy Spirit who overshadowed Mary be poured out in every home, giving hope and encouragement to all who hunger for the Lord’s appearing. May the might of Jehovah Sabaoth—the Captain of Armies—protect us all in the midst of threats of terror.

During this Christmas season, we declare our Lord is near to all who watch and pray and call upon His name, especially the poor, lonely, and those battling infirmities. This Christmas, we voice the wishes expressed in the Christmas Carol, “God bless us everyone!” Merry Christmas!

Col. 1:15-20, “We look at this Son and see the God who cannot be seen. We look at this Son and see God’s original purpose in everything created. For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible, rank after rank after rank of angels—everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him. He was there before any of it came into existence and holds it all together right up to this moment. And when it comes to the church, he organizes and holds it together, like a head does a body.

He was supreme in the beginning and—leading the resurrection parade—he is supreme in the end. From beginning to end he’s there, towering far above everything, everyone. So spacious is he, so roomy, that everything of God finds its proper place in him without crowding. Not only that, but all the broken and dislocated pieces of the universe—people and things, animals and atoms—get properly fixed and fit together in vibrant harmonies, all because of his death, his blood that poured down from the cross.”

Hebrews 1:1-4, “God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself[a] purged our[b] sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.”

Matt. 2:9-11, “When they heard the king, they departed; and behold, the star which they had seen in the East went before them, till it came and stood over where the young Child was. When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy. And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.”

Luke 2:1-20; Zech. 9:9
