Bring the Prince of Peace into your cities and towns this Christmas
Mark 11:9,10 -
And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord: Blessed is the kingdom that cometh, the kingdom of our father David: Hosanna in the highest.
Every Christmas a great part of the world celebrates Christmas with great fun and fair but most part of the celebration has nothing to do with Christ, all the more things they do angers God. I have noticed that great accidents and natural calamities also occur during this season.
People who start studying the Bible have realized that Jesus was not born on 25th Dec. but on some other day and this changes was done by the RC Church in the 8th century for all the wrong reasons. We can use this day to speak to others of Jesus and I do this by putting Biblical messages on sweet / cake boxes while giving our family friends.
I am very happy this Christmas 26th Dec. our team has organized a procession (The Truth Rally) of taking Jesus on the streets of Mumbai. We have managed to get Churches of different denominations all over Mumbai to come together for this event. The procession will be taken on trucks, buses, people will walk and those who have vehicles will join with them. A live band will lead this procession playing worship songs and between songs we will have free praise, thus bringing peace and anointing to this city. I am very excited and just cannot wait to see the Christians shouting praises for Jesus Christ in between the crowded streets of Mumbai. WOW!!!
When Jesus was born, man did not know Him so God had the Angels to sing praise Him and declare peace on earth. I am sure along with you there are many in your city or town who know Jesus, so are you going to want God to send Angels to worship and bring peace into your city or are you going to be an Angel for others and praise and worship God and bring peace into your city?
Get your Church and other nearby Churches together and change all nonsense which man has been doing in the Name of Christ into that which is according to the Heart of God.
The people who knew Jesus boldly welcomed Jesus and sang praise to God throwing their coats on the floor and laying down palm leaves before Jesus.
Are we going to be afraid to proclaim Jesus Christ in the streets of your city? Are we going to keep our inhibition or are you going to lay it down for the Prince of Peace? If you want peace in your city, act today.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord God, when the Israelites sang praise to You even Balam could not curse them. Praise and worship brings peace. Lord, give your people courage to go on to the streets and to proclaim your Name and give glory to You...
We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.
[ Reference Scripture ]
1 And when they draw nigh unto Jerusalem, unto Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he sendeth two of his disciples,
2 and saith unto them, Go your way into the village that is over against you: and straightway as ye enter into it, ye shall find a colt tied, whereon no man ever yet sat; loose him, and bring him.
3 And if any one say unto you, Why do ye this? say ye, The Lord hath need of him; and straightway he will send him back hither.
4 And they went away, and found a colt tied at the door without in the open street; and they loose him.
5 And certain of them that stood there said unto them, What do ye, loosing the colt?
6 And they said unto them even as Jesus had said: and they let them go.
7 And they bring the colt unto Jesus, and cast on him their garments; and he sat upon him.
8 And many spread their garments upon the way; and others branches, which they had cut from the fields.
9 And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord:
10 Blessed is the kingdom that cometh, the kingdom of our father David: Hosanna in the highest.
11 And he entered into Jerusalem, into the temple; and when he had looked round about upon all things, it being now eventide, he went out unto Bethany with the twelve.
8 How shall I curse, whom God hath not cursed? or how shall I defy, whom the LORD hath not defied?
9 For from the top of the rocks I see him, and from the hills I behold him: lo, the people shall dwell alone, and shall not be reckoned among the nations.
10 Who can count the dust of Jacob, and the number of the fourth part of Israel? Let me die the death of the righteous, and let my last end be like his!
11 And Balak said unto Balaam, What hast thou done unto me? I took thee to curse mine enemies, and, behold, thou hast blessed them altogether.
12 And he answered and said, Must I not take heed to speak that which the LORD hath put in my mouth?
13 And Balak said unto him, Come, I pray thee, with me unto another place, from whence thou mayest see them: thou shalt see but the utmost part of them, and shalt not see them all: and curse me them from thence.
14 And he brought him into the field of Zophim, to the top of Pisgah, and built seven altars, and offered a bullock and a ram on every altar.
15 And he said unto Balak, Stand here by thy burnt offering, while I meet the LORD yonder.
16 And the LORD met Balaam, and put a word in his mouth, and said, Go again unto Balak, and say thus.
17 And when he came to him, behold, he stood by his burnt offering, and the princes of Moab with him. And Balak said unto him, What hath the LORD spoken?
18 And he took up his parable, and said, Rise up, Balak, and hear; hearken unto me, thou son of Zippor:
19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?
20 Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and he hath blessed; and I cannot reverse it.
21 He hath not beheld iniquity in Jacob, neither hath he seen perverseness in Israel: the LORD his God is with him, and the shout of a king is among them.
