"God rest ye merry, gentlemen,
Let nothing you dismay,
Remember Christ our Savior
Was born on Christmas Day;..."
|"God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman" is
a traditional English Christmas carol written by an unknown author
before 1760 when it is first known to have been published. It is very
interesting to note that like today this was an era of political unrest
and social need. In our own nation we were mentally and physically
beginning to prepare for war and a new national identity. It was in the
midst of the trouble that surrounded the lives of Christians in Europe
and colonial America that this beautiful Christmas carol was formed on
unknown lips. The author almost pleads with Christians now and then to
remember that in the midst of trouble and under the threat of
destruction, God has already given victory to His children. Jesus
Christ, our Savior was born on Christmas Day. Jesus has come; we are
reconciled with God and our provision and protection are made and are
complete in Him.
Be at rest, be merry and rejoice. The battle is done; the victory is won.
Jesus Christ is born!
May you have a blessed and peace filled Christmas and may you experience a prosperous and Divinely healthy new year.

For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse. Romans 1:20
The heavens are telling the
glory of God; and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.
CREATION STATION is a section containing pertinent and relative information that pertains to God proclaiming Himself through all His creation. As man continues to learn of the world he lives in, reasoning and conclusions from observations are determined by the mind set; either of the Spirit or the flesh (Romans 8:5-6). As one opens the eyes to see and ears to hear, the excitement of God revealing Himself becomes part of our growth and transformation process in preparation for the coming of the Lord!

We welcome you to listen to short excerpts from recent teaching messages that focus on the believer's responsibility and benefits of growing into the fullness of the Father's provisions and the image of Christ (1Cor 15:49; 1John 3:2).
In today's economic turmoil and uncertainty, many are asking how they can survive the current economic disorder created by the power and greed that exists in the kingdom of this world or the kingdom of self. While the following article has been on this web site for a substantial length of time, it remains even more relevant today and until the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. It reminds us that the Word of God is the reference standard by which our thoughts and decisions should be made.
The Father God has made it clear in His Word that through Jesus "His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, that through these you may escape from the corruption that is in the world because of passion, and become partakers of the divine nature." (2Peter 1:3-4)
As we learn, understand, and use the basic principle that operates in God's economy, we begin to reap the benefits stated in 2Peter 1:3-4. ...read more
The Holy Spirit Book
Who is the Holy Spirit? Why did Jesus instruct His disciples to wait after His departure until they had received "power" from on high? Jesus knew that without the Holy Spirit living within them, the disciples were incapable of receiving the revelation knowledge necessary to function in the full provisions and power of the Cross. If you feel powerless in this world and overcome by your circumstances, we invite you to learn of the Father's great gift to His church, the seal and guarantee of your inheritance, His Holy Spirit living within you.
