A Japanese Christmas Present To You

by Cinderella Released …from ashes to beauty

A Christmas present to you.  And God spoke, “Light” and there was light.  God then separated the day and night.  He spoke into existence the plants, trees and everything came into being.  Then the Bible says, God reached down and with His own two hands, formed man and woman and then breathed His breath into their beings.  He made mankind and gave them dominion over everything.

In Job Chapter 38, God asks Job a series of questions and then gives Job the answers:

Pull yourself together, Job! Up on your feet! Stand tall!  I have some questions for you, and I want some straight answers.  Where were you when I created the earth?  Tell me, since you know so much!  Who decided on its’ size?  Certainly you know that!  Who came up with the blueprints and measurements?  How was the foundation poured, and who set the cornerstone, while the morning stars sang in chorus and all the angels shouted praise?  And who took charge of the ocean when it gushed forth like a baby from the womb?  That was me!  I wrapped it in soft clouds, and tucked it in safely at night.

 In Japan the art of gift giving is very precious.  You hold your gift very carefully in two hands and bow when you give someone a gift.  You wrap it very carefully as to protect and provide surprise to the receiver.

Mary, the mother of Jesus was given the honor of presenting God’s present to the world, His son Jesus who was carefully wrapped in swaddling clothes, placed in a box we call a manger and presented to the world.   This precious gift grew into whom we know as King Jesus!

My King

My King was born King; the Bible says He’s the seven way King.
He’s the King of the Jews – that’s a racial King
He’s the King of Israel – that’s a national King
He’s the King of righteousness, He’s the King of the ages,
He’s the King of heaven, He’s the King of glory,
He’s the King of Kings and He is the Lord of Lords,
Now that’s MY KING.

Well, I wonder if you know Him, do you know Him?
Don’t try to mislead me – do you know MY KING?
David said, “The heavens declare the glory of God
and the firmament shows His handiwork.”

MY KING is the only one, whom there is no means of measurement
which can define His limitless love.
No far seeing telescope can bring into visibility the coastline
of His shore less supplies.
No barriers can hinder Him from pouring out His blessing.
He’s enduringly strong, He’s entirely sincere, He’s eternally steadfast,
He’s immortally graceful, imperially powerful and impartially merciful.
That’s MY KING!

He’s God’s Son.  He’s the sinner’s Savior. 
He’s the centerpiece of civilization, He stands alone in Himself.
He’s awesome, unique, unparalleled – He’s unprecedented.
He’s the miracle of the age.  He’s the superlative of
everything good that you choose to call Him.
He is the only one able to supply all of our needs simultaneously.

He supplies strength for the weak. 
He’s available for the tempted and the tried.
He sympathizes and He saves.  He for guards and He guides.
He heals the sick.  He cleanses lepers. He forgives sinners.
He discharges debtors.  He delivers the captives.  He defends the feeble.
He blesses the young.  He serves the unfortunate.  He regards the aged.
He rewards the diligent and He beautifies the meek.
Do you know HIM?

Well, MY KING is the King of knowledge, He’s the wellspring of wisdom.
He’s the doorway of deliverance.  He’s the pathway of peace.  He’s the roadway
of righteousness.  He’s the highway of holiness.  He’s the gateway of glory.
He’s the Master of the mighty.  He’s the Captain of the conquerors. 
He’s the Head of the heroes, and He’s the Leader of the legislators.
He’s the Overseer of the over comers.  He’s the Governor of governors. 
He’s the Prince of princes, He’s the King of kings, and He’s the Lord of lords.
That’s MY KING!

His office is manifold and His promises are sure.  His light is matchless. 
His goodness is limitless.  His mercy is everlasting and His love never changes.
His Word is enough. His grace is sufficient.  His reign is righteous.
His yoke is easy and His burden is light.
Well, I wish I could describe Him to you, but He’s indescribable!
He’s incomprehensible, invincible and irresistible.

I’m trying to tell you the heaven of heavens can not contain Him,
let alone a man explain Him! 
You can’t get Him out of your mind.   You can’t get Him off of your hands.
You can’t outlive Him and you can’t live without Him. 
Well, the Pharisees couldn’t stand Him, but they found out they couldn’t stop Him.
Pilot couldn’t find any fault in Him.  The witnesses couldn’t get their
testimonies to agree and Herod couldn’t kill Him.
Death couldn’t handle Him and the grave couldn’t hold Him.
That’s MY KING!

When a man and a woman get married, the groom picks up the bride,
with both hands, and carries her across the threshold of their home. 
This is first and indication of the two becoming one and
second a sign of the man’s provision, protection and adoration for his bride.

The bride simply has to surrender and allow the husband to lift her up
and carry her across the divide. 
The King of kings wants to pick you up with His mighty hands and carry
you across the universe!
