WHAT AN INCREDIBLE DIFFERENCE

Birth of Christ………Now a NEW COVENANT

   A CHILD HAS BEEN BORN! MESSIAH CHRIST!

   OLD COVENANT…………..Do or Die! 

   NEW COVENANT ……Confess!, Repent! Forgiveness! In Christ GRACE UNLIMITED – Only Believe.  

This year with Christmas Day falling on a Saturday,  the Sunday readings many folks follow shocked by the difference seen by the Birth of the Promised Messiah/SAVIOUR. and OLD COVENANT living under the LAW.  

        2 Chron 24- 17-20……….filled with the Spirit Zechariah tries to turn the people to God’s Holy Law and dispense with idol worship….Why do you transgress the Commandments of the Lord?

They seize him and stone him to death.   As he dies he says “The Lord look on this and repay.’       

                                                DESTRUCTION FOLLOWED!   

                  OLD COVENANT L A W!  

                                     A CHILD IS BORN!    

Acts 7.         Stephen filled with the Spirit tries to tell the TRUTH about Messiah’s coming and His SALVATION for ALL,

         He is seized and stoned to death……..He looks up…He sees Jesus.    He says “Lord, do not charge them with this sin.’  

         The Pharisee Saul’s whole life will be drastically changed!      He saw and understood a new Covenant of Grace will change all old works laws.

       The NEW COVENANT………….In Christ ALONE…….FORGIVENESS and freedom.     

           The Child’s birthday heralded            THE NEW COVENANT.       

                Christ’s Blood shed at Calvary NEW WAY FORWARD.     HIS Resurrection sealed the Holy Promise of eternity in Him.  

                  NOW no longer must we work to be good enough .  We LOVE, we confess, we repent we accept forgiveness.    The Holy Spirit indwelling is working on our behalf to sanctify us.     

                                                               This is the great Gift of Christmas.

                                          He was BORN.     In Him We believe.

                                           He are…… in calendar years at the end    of the 2021st year of Grace.  

Now, we await the coming of Christ again and His KINGDOM AGE.   

             Walk today in the FULLNESS OF GRACE.

                                                      You are loved! 

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
