By Lynn Mosher –

“Unto us a Son is given…and His name will be called Wonderful,

Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”

(Isa. 9:6 NKJV)

 

Many prophecies given. Many generations came and died. Until, the prophecies came to pass.

When heaven’s Temple came down…

“But when the time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under law, to redeem those under law, that we might receive the full rights of sons.” (Gal. 4:4-5 NIV)

…a Son was given to Mary and Joseph. “…the One to be Ruler in Israel, whose goings forth are from of old, from everlasting.” (Micah 5:2 NKJV) The One Who was “the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.” (Col. 1:15 NKJV)

The begotten of Eternity. God come in Person. The Ancient of times.

…and the Temple entered a temple. The collision of Divinity and humanity!

This Temple, destined to be destroyed, torn down, ripped apart, by the hands of earth’s religionists, would one day speak these words, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” (John 2:19 NKJV)

Raise up. To arouse from sitting, reclining, sleep, or even death. But they didn’t get it, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in three days?” (John 2:20 NKJV)

But this Temple was no ordinary earthly temple. This Temple was of divine origin. (John 2:21)

The heavenly Temple was presented in the earthly temple…

And “when the days of [Mary’s] purification according to the law of Moses were completed, [Mary and Joseph] they brought Him to Jerusalem to present Him to the Lord.” (Luke 2:22 NKJV)

The Firstborn, not only of Mary but of all creation, was nestled in the arms of His earthly mother and dedicated to His heavenly Father.

 

“Oh my Lord…You sent Your Son to save us

Oh my Lord…Your very self You gave us

Oh my Lord…That sin may not enslave us and love may reign once more
Oh my Lord…When in the crip You found Him

Oh my Lord…A golden halo crown’d Him

Oh my Lord…They gathered all around Him to see Him and adore”

(Some versions of Mary’s Boy Child contain these ending words)

 

Heaven’s Temple entered earth to give those on earth an entrance into heaven’s Temple!

“Joy to the world! the Lord is come; Let earth receive her King.”

May the Temple of heaven fill the earthly temple of your heart with Joy!

Christmas blessings, Lynn
