Unto Us A Child Is Born – What Child is This?

I keep hearing an incredible song play in my heart and head.  Robyn and I listened to it while we were decorating our Christmas tree – and it just stuck.  “What Child Is This” – we listened to Andrea Bocelli sing it – just amazing!  It was written by a William Chatterton Dix, in 1865 in England.  He was an insurance salesman!  He was struck by a severe illness and during his recovery he underwent a remarkable Spiritual renewal – during which time he penned a number of songs of deep worship!

Incredible song, asking the biggest question of all time!

What Child Is This?

Those that know Him already fall to their knees and worship Him.  Those that are still journeying to that “place” – well here comes Christmas, such a beautiful time and everyone, both people of The Faith and not, ALL know, it’s time to selflessly give.

How come we all know that?  Hallmark didn’t start this season right?  God did.

God wanted to have us all grab a new image of Him – things had gone awry on planet earth – religion had taken the Godhead and branded it/Him something far from the total reality.

God’s brand of the time seemed harsh and punishing – the religious leaders loved that – it set them in complete control.

God wanted a “direct connect” – total broadband from heaven, to each and every person that would accept His gift, His Son.  Then meet frequently in His Presence to worship Him!

God created a “way” of clearing all our “stuff” off the radar of our lives – you know, the bad stuff, that kept us away from Him and kept us from loving ourselves and our lives.   That “way” has a name – His name is Jesus!

No more from me – I have said enough.  Look these two scriptures.

The first is from the Old Testament – it’s a prophecy from grumpy Isaiah!

Isaiah 9:6 (NKJV)

For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

 

Wow, that’s who Isaiah saw coming?  Just think about it – each description is a “job description!”

The second is from the New Testament – penned by Matthew who walked with Jesus.

Matthew 1:23 (NKJV)

“Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”

 

Yes, that’s “What Child this Is!”

God with us!  Just stop a moment and talk with God, maybe say “please show me your Son – bring it ALL home to me please God.”

When Jesus arrives in your life so does liberty – liberty that can arrive no other way!

God is amazing!
