TWO KINDS OF CLOTHES FOR TWO KINDS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS


 The itinerary of civilization in the global world especially into my country Rwanda let us learn that people started by being naked before their tried to hide their private parts at a certain age of maturity.
               Time passed and they wore leathers of tanned skins from young cows and sheep into clothes, to reach a period that they got linen clothing from the trade of Asians, after having transited through the use of the skins of a ficus tree (UMUVUMU).
               By the entrance of sin into the humanity to the time of law.
 
 
Adam and Eve tried to make aprons from fig leaves, after having discovered themselves naked by disobeying God’s instruction about the avoidance of eating the fruits from a tree in Eden garden.
 
The Lord God made for Adam and Eve the garments of skins and clothed them.
 
Moses was brought to let Aaron and his sons to wear gold, blue and purple as purple and scarlet stuff and fine twined linen.
 
A golden bell and pomegranate, a pomegranate, round about on the skirts of the robe were to be upon Aaron when he ministered and when he went into the holy place before the Lord, and when he came out , lest he die.
Men’ righteousness shows that there is nothing good in flesh as Paul confirmed.
I do what I don’t want to do by sin which is in me.
I’am a wretched man because I serve the law of god with my mind but with my flesh I serve the law of flesh.
                      Jesus’s righteous, era of grace.
 
 
 
He committed no sin, no guile was found on his lips.
He didn’t revile in return while reviled.
When He suffered, he didn’t threaten.
He trusted to Him who judges Justly.
He bore himself our sins in his body on a pole that we might die to sin and live to righteousness.
By his wound you have been healed.
We were straying like sheep, now returned to the shepherd and Guardian of our souls.
                   Conclusion:
 
Remember!
 
Webs of men are far from the righteousness of God. Their webs will not fit as clothing; men will not cover  themselves with what them make.
Their works are works of iniquity and deeds of violence are in their hands.
Let’s have faith through his word from the bible.
 
Let’s remove the dross from the silver so that the Smith will have the material t use.
 
Let our righteousness exceed that one for the Scribes and Pharisees in order to reach heaven
Let’s do whatever He says throughout His word into the Bible.
We have to put aside whatever is ours’s.
In  some, let’s wear the righteousness of Him by trusting god’s commands.
                                            God bless you so much with 2015 and beyond!

THE ACCOMPLISHMENT OF GOD’S WILL STEPPED ONLY BY HIMSELF.


2 And Samuel said, How can I go? if Saul hear it, he will kill me. And the LORD said, Take an heifer with thee, and say, I am come to sacrifice to the LORD.

3 And call Jesse to the sacrifice, and I will shew thee what thou shalt do: and thou shalt anoint unto me him whom I name unto thee.

4 And Samuel did that which the LORD spake, and came to Bethlehem. And the elders of the town trembled at his coming, and said, Comest thou peaceably?

5 And he said, Peaceably: I am come to sacrifice unto the LORD: sanctify yourselves, and come with me to the sacrifice. And he sanctified Jesse and his sons, and called them to the sacrifice.

6 And it came to pass, when they were come, that he looked on Eliab, and said, Surely the LORD’S anointed is before him.

7 But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.

8 Then Jesse called Abinadab, and made him pass before Samuel. And he said, Neither hath the LORD chosen this.

9 Then Jesse made Shammah to pass by. And he said, Neither hath the LORD chosen this.

10 Again, Jesse made seven of his sons to pass before Samuel. And Samuel said unto Jesse, The LORD hath not chosen these.

11 And Samuel said unto Jesse, Are here all thy children? And he said, There remaineth yet the youngest, and, behold, he keepeth the sheep. And Samuel said unto Jesse, Send and fetch him: for we will not sit down till he come hither.

12 And he sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to. And the LORD said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he.

13 Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah.

14 But the Spirit of the LORD departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD troubled him.

15 And Saul’s servants said unto him, Behold now, an evil spirit from God troubleth thee.

16 Let our lord now command thy servants, which are before thee, to seek out a man, who is a cunning player on an harp: and it shall come to pass, when the evil spirit from God is upon thee, that he shall play with his hand, and thou shalt be well.

17 And Saul said unto his servants, Provide me now a man that can play well, and bring him to me.

18 Then answered one of the servants, and said, Behold, I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite, that is cunning in playing, and a mighty valiant man, and a man of war, and prudent in matters, and a comely person, and the LORD is with him.

19 Wherefore Saul sent messengers unto Jesse, and said, Send me David thy son, which is with the sheep.

20 And Jesse took an ass laden with bread, and a bottle of wine, and a kid, and sent them by David his son unto Saul.

21 And David came to Saul, and stood before him: and he loved him greatly; and he became his armourbearer.

22 And Saul sent to Jesse, saying, Let David, I pray thee, stand before me; for he hath found favor in my sight.

23 And it came to pass, when the evil spirit from God was upon Saul, that David took an harp, and played with his hand: so Saul was refreshed, and was well, and the evil spirit departed from him.

 
 
                                            No plan while accomplishing the will of God! 
 
 
 
     If  you are going to start a worldly  project, you must first set the steps of your project,

                                                              you have to assess it,

                                                              you must also having a budget.

 
    In the salvation way it is not like that!
 
 God start  on naughty. He called David  and anointed him as a king of Israel from the watching Father’s flock. 
The same way for everyone called to respond at His will and it still is alike today.
 
 
   From  Samuel 16 verse 1-7
 
The scripture said  that all seven Jesse’s sons had passed by before Samuel but God didn’t allow Samuel to anoint any one except David.
When Samuel saw Aliab he thought that surely the Lord’s anointed  was him.  But the lord  prevented Samuel to not consider his appearance or his height for He had rejected him.The lord doesn’t look at things like man.   Man looks outwardly but the lord looks inwardly. .Samuel saw Aliab’s beauty ,height and his appearance,  thinking that he was the one God wanted to anoint.  That is how people have to deceive themselves.
 
Remember when Isaac was older decided to bless his first born Esau before he died. He thought that Esau deserved that blessing because hi was the first born,  was cunning hunter of wild game what was against the will of God. The will of God was upon Jacob.
 
                   Briefly, looking for the position, the situation is to stand against the will of God.
 
1 Samuel:16,13,acts 2:36-39
 
                  God had called his servants and still be calling them for his work.
 
                  If God  had called his servants and anointed them by the oil through his prophets like Samuel, He calls and anoints today  his servants by Holy Spirit.
This anointing is not made by the human hand. It applied to that one who heard the true Gospel, recognized his true image and performed the true repentance for having the forgiveness of sins. He receives that anointing as gift of the Holy Spirit.
 
                  Into the church, people look after someone’s work,  good behavior thinking that they found the righteous in their sight, but not at the God’s one. sight of God.
 
                  Truly there is a process to be anointed by the Holy Spirit:Hearing  the Gospel; Believing it; Recognizing his true image of sinner; Repenting and getting the forgiveness of his sins. 
                                   
1 Samuel 16:14-23
 
                  The scripture spake about David at the king service that evil spirit was coming upon king Soul and tormented him. Thus the king attendants said;  Let our lord commend his servants to search for someone who can play the harp when the evil spirit from God comes on him to bring him better, what was vain except David played music.
He sang with anointing from God and the evil spirit which tormented Soul fled.  Without anointing nothing can praise God .   
 
 
                  Let’s conclude by this holy passage from the book of Romans:27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that loveGod, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God‘s elect? It is God that justifieth.

God bless you.

TRUE CHURCH


                    Luke 10:25-37

                  (Ephesians 2:19-27)

 

 

The Parable of the Good Samaritan

 

 

…(25 On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

26 “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?”

27 He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’[a]; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]”

28 “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”

29 But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

30 In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. 31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. 32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. 34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two Denali[c] and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’

36 “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”

37 The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”

Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”)

 

                                        What this teaches us? 

 

                      This means that none can save himself you expected Jesus Christ.

                      The man was left half dead and nothing he could do to save himself
expected to lay as dead.

                      The same, nothing you can do to save yourself from the death of
sin in order to have salvation. 
                     where or when your work, your power, your thoughts end, is when or where the work of God
starts , and  then, Jesus Christ is ready to save you.
.
                     The good Samaritan came and saw him, having pity and taking care to
him by pouring on oil and wine, by dressing his wounds.  Then he put the

man on his donkey and brought to the inn to take care of him.

                     Spiritually , this Samaritan represents Jesus Christ and the wounds
represent the sins. The wine represents the blood of Jesus shed on
cross and the oil represent the Holy Spirit. 

 

                     The Samaritan work was the true image of Jesus Christ  on cross. The world had been saved
from death of sin by the blood of Jesus Christ shed on cross.

                     Remember we are talking about the true church , the true church is not
denomination as many people knows and says.

                    The true church is that one which had been established by Jesus Christ, that “Inn”.

 

                    If we say about the true church, we mean those who have already gotten forgiveness of sin.

 The true church is a group of those who have heard the true gospel, recognizing their image , repenting from the bottom of their heart and having salvation.

 

                   The scripture said that the man was taken to the inn by the
Samaritan. What the inn means ? The inn represents the true church.

                   Ephesian 4:11- 12

                             
                   Remember the Lord God had appointed the church leaders: Apostles the
prophets, pastors , Evangelist and the teachers. 

As he appointed  his
leaders, they are under the guidance of the Holy spirit.  The inner keeper represents the servants of
God.

                     
                    Matthew 13:44-46

                    If we read the scripture from this book, we recognize the true image
of the church of Christ.

 The field represents the true church,  and the hidden treasure represent Jesus Christ. Out of the
church you can not get treasure, out of the church you can not meet Jesus Christ.

 If people  try to do themselves , it means  those
people are out of the church. Those people can  not meet  Jesus
Christ.
                    Let us talk about the story of Naomi and her daughter in law.

 Naomi represents the servant of God, Ruth represents the Christians and Boaz
represents Jesus Christ . . Remember the field represent the
church and the treasure hidden in the field is Christ.

 

                    Many people are in need of treasure but they don’t want to buy field . those
people will not get treasure… 

So in order to get treasure we must buy
the field.

                      Many people are in need to meet Jesus Christ but they don’t
want to enter into the church. Those people will not be saved and
get salvation. 

                      In order to have Jesus Christ in your heart , in
order to have salvation you must enter into the church.

                      Remember your method, knowledge, power, properties and your thoughts
can not allow you to by the field.

 These can not make you able to enter into the true church, which had  BILL established by Jesus Christ.

                      As you entered the true church, Just know that  for all situation, someone must be involved ,  Jesus Christ must work  .
                      In the true church Jesus Christ must work himself.

Revelation 1:9-17; 2:1

 

The scripture said about what the angel of God revealed to John in the
island of Pot mas . What was revealed to John ?

 

                     John was revealed: – God inside of his church.
–       God’s Angels.
–       The servants in the church
–       Shepherd in the church.

                     The Angel of God revealed and shows the will of God and how God takes
care to his church. All those were revealed to John. We are still
talking abut the church of God . The one who standing among the
lamp-stand  is Jesus Christ. The 7 candle stick on the lamp stand
represent the seven churches In Asian. The 7 stars into the hand of
the one standing among the two lamp-stands is the seven Angels  standing
for the seven churches In Asian. As the lamb of God was walking among the
seven candlestick means that Jesus Christ move  and surrounding in the
church solving the problems in the church and also solving the problems
 for the members of his church each other.

                      Even their thoughts Jesus direct them. If you are weak or facing
disasters is up  to you, not for God. But you have chance that God is
there to solve them. 

 

                      Inside true church, there is spiritual life, and the disaster is handled by Jesus himself.

                      Outside the true church, there is no solution for your questions.

 

                                                                                                                                  TUJIJUKENONE@GMAIL.COM

                                                                                                                                   jean.nepomuscene12@gmail.com

 

APART FROM PROSTITUTION THERE IS ETERNAL LIFE


                                                     Genesis 19:30-38

                                                  Jeremiah 23:28-29

        Human  life starts being perishable, to become, imperishable in the kingdom of God after resurrection throughout the preaching and believing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.              This brings eternal life for those who  will inherit  the kingdom of heaven. We have read from the book of Jeremiah, and the scripture said that the word of God is like fire, like hammer.

        Let us talk about hammer: Consider that here is rock on which someone beats a hammer that something  must be removed, even if the hammer could be bent.  The same way, if the true Gospel is preached, it must do its work into the heart for those who hear it.  Sins are discovered so that who hears the Gospel and believes,  will  surely gain imperishable life “eternal life”.

        But for a hardened heart  than an  iron, which cannot be changed to let the will of God be the leader, will prevent the inheritance of the kingdom of God, so that there will be no way to
gain eternal life. The enemies of God have to expect only Hell where unquenchable fire is eternal.

        The scripture said about the adultery of Lot and his daughters.  Lot and his daughters represent the church which does not bring the glory to God.  His daughters had given him a wine that they may flirt with
her father.

        According  the book of Revelation 18:2-3 explains wine related to the anger of fornication which misled all nations. It is like teaching out of God’s glory, teachings unable to lead to the
salvation.

        The bible said that after committing adultery with her father; all daughters had conceived. The first  bore a son and called him Moab and is the father of Moabites.
 The younger bore a son also,  and called him Ben ammi and this one is a father of Ammonites.

        Who are ammonites and Moabites?

Number 21:21-23
Number 22:1-6
Remember those nations had stopped the Israelites to reach into the land of promise. Those are the nations which had already cursed in the sight of God. What these teach us spiritually?  This means that the works of evildoers are evil in the sight of God and it brings curse and dead to them.

        Why those daughters had committed adultery with her father? It was from their thoughts that:
-Their father was old.
-No one to sleep with them.
– As their custom.
-They may preserve their father’s Seed’.

        All these were full into their heart. This had took place into their heart because of:
-Situation
-Their sight
-Their thoughts and the lust of Body. All these are not from God but from Satan who inspires thoughts which are not spiritual.

        Remember  that adultery spiritually means to worship idols, to go astray from the will
of God;  going on sinning.
These are again what pushes people to commit adultery:

-Looking for situation, following their sight ( Our father is old; No
man in the country to have sex with)
-Their thoughts. (Let’s preserve the seed for our father)
-The lust of body.(According the way of the world)

 All these are found in the human heart. Who enters bad thoughts in your heart is Evil,  and causes you to commit adultery.  Are many surrounding you and wanting you to commit prostitution with
you. These are demons.  All these are taking place into the human heart.

 They are two kinds of work that take place into the human heart:

– The works of God into the human heart. It is holy.  There are salvation and blessings to those who accept God to bring change  into their hearts.  This brings eternal life.

– There are also the works of Satan taking place into the human heart;
when people trust in their thoughts, in their knowledge, in their
method.
 – This kind of works brings curse and death.

                  Psalm 28:5, Deuteronomy 28:63

   Because they regard not the works of the Lord, nor the operation of his hands, he shall destroy them and not build them up. There will not be lost for God.

THE UNLEAVENED  BREAD (WITHOUT YEAST ) WHICH GIVES ETERNAL LIFE.


Genesis 19 : 1- 29

Biologic human life is sustained by nutriments from food.
He might suffer from  malnutrition if his food is lack of vitamins and
or proteins.
The same way, many Christian are suffering from malnutrition
spiritually because
of hearing not the true  Gospel.        Only they are preached about
laws and church doctrines.

Genesis 19:3, Matthew 16: 5-12

The scriptures said that lot had baked the bread
without yeast for the two Angels arrived at sodom.

What is the spiritual meaning of the bread without yeast?

Spiritually, a bread means the word of God . And
again the bread
without yeast means the gospel pure from the mixture of laws and doctrines.
otherwise the  TRUE GOSPEL

If the bible says  about the yeast of
pharisees and Sadducees, what this means?  This means their teachings
which could not save from the death of sin in order to bring salvation
to their followers.

Even today, there are many servants who still be
sharing the bread which has yeast , who are preaching to their
congregation the laws  and church doctrines  as they ask to keep them.
and teaching them the doctrines of the churches.

Genesis 19:4-5, Ezekiel 23: 1-35

The scriptures said that all men young and old came
to lot surrounding his house, asking him to bring out those two angels
entered to lot house that
they may have sex with them.

This kind of prostitution or adultery  is turning
the back to God and trust in worldly things  like idols worshiping .
They are sinners in the sight of God.

Those people were from all the parts of Sodom,
surrounded Lot’s house and struggled to have sex with The Angels.
Those people spiritually mean the demons.
The house means the human heart. Remember  we are
talking  about those Angels entered the lot’s house and  who were
given a bread without yeast.

Comparatively, if you are committed to hear the
TRUE GOSPEL, Satan is close to you to fight against it. Where the Word
of God is preached, Demons sent by Satan, stand and fight against it.
The same , are many demons surrounding you  and want  to commit
adultery with you.   They are many demons surrounding you with the
lusts to fornicate with you through your thoughts, by uprooting the
TRUE GOSPEL you are hearing.

Their goal is to astray you from the will of God.

Those people were from all the parts of sodom city.
The meaning of the city bring us to get the real image of where
believers are gathered, commonly into the church disregarding their
denominations.

Be aware of the presence of demons in action when
the TRUE GOSPEL is turned into laws and doctrines, blessings,
miracles, honor etc…Satan is then worshipped than God.

Genesis 19:24-25

God rained up on sodom and Gomorrah brimstone and
fire from the Lord out of heaven. The same , this will be the punishment of
these churches like sodom and Gomorrah, the church   which are teaching the
laws and  doctrines while asking their congregation to keep them.

The hell fire is waiting for these churches.
Genesis 19: 21-23

Fortunately, Lot saw a small city called Zoar and asking angels
to flee there. Remember a city represent a church. There is a church near
you seemingly small, which is preaching the TRUE GOSPEL. Flee there that you
may eat a bread without yeast. That your soul may be saved. Flee there
that you may live.

“THE TRUE WORSHIPERS MAY WORSHIP OUR HEAVENLY FATHER IN SPIRIT AND TRUTH.


                       Water is a basic need in daily human life.  Lacking it leads to the dehydration and its fall-outs like illnesses and death.
.
                       In case of dehydration, patient is sent to the hospital for treatment by water added to dehydrating salts.
Spiritually, the water represents the word of God which gives us eternal life.
The woman said that she was  Samaritan as Jesus Christ was from Jews tribe.  For her, Jesus would not ask her water to drink.
                       As the scripture said , the Samaritans and the Jews were all the nations chosen by God and being taken out from Egypt by his hand .
                       When they reach in the land of promise they separated  one from another.

To this past we match the kingdom of Samaria which is Jerusalem and the kingdom of Judah which is Judea up these days.
 The woman said:”We Samaritans worship in that mountain, but Jews claim that we must go to Jerusalem to worship God”
                       On this Jesus answered that a time will come and it has already come, who worships God will no longer go at this
mountain or at Jerusalem but worship in spirit and truth.
 
                        Why Jesus Christ said so?1 kings 12:26-33
The scripture said that king Jeroboam made two golden calve, by this he brought all Samaritans to worship idols. In Samaria there was no water of

life, as word of God. Romans 15:1-5;   Romans 3:19-20;    Galatians 3:1-12

Unless people were circumcised and obeying the laws of Moses, they could not be saved.This was the preaching which was in Judea.
                        The Pharisees and Sadducees were teaching the laws and their customs. This is not the true gospel. No one who will be declared righteous in the sight of God by observing the laws.
This days there are many churches like  Samaria and Judea which are not
preaching the true gospel but only doctrines and the laws.
Those teachings are not source of the water of life. with  these teachings people can not be withdrawn from the slavery of Satan, can not give salvation.
Let us talk again about dehydration illness.
 If someone is suffering from this illness, the physician must treat him by L- lactate drip and ORS. Delaying to treat this such patient brings death inevitably.
                          The same people are  people suffering from dehydration because of the lack of water of life, because they have not the word of God into their hearts.
Consequently, they  can not worship God in the Spirit and Truth.
 What is the spirit?
If you write a letter or an application you must supply a signature. If

you don’t sign on it, this application can not be read. The same with the
word of God.  It has signature, and that is the Holy Spirit.

                             Any one who hears the Gospel  and does not believe it is impossible to have  the power of Holy Spirit. He can not worship God in Spirit and

Truth.

These days, there are many churches which like Samaria and Jerusalem. They Are not preaching  the true  Gospel of Jesus Christ.  They are only leading astray the nations of God from his will .

                               Thus, the Holy Spirit moves around and around to make them understanding the will of God through his word, through their dream, through their vision and their prophecy.
                               As they have known  the will of God for them but remain not  committed to the restoration through the word of God,  surely the Hell fire is waiting  for them. If there is no word of GOD, disregarding the visions,the trances, the prophecies and the speaking in tongues.
Surely, the true Gospel is the water of life!    Hear it and believe it that you may be saved.

HELP FROM ABOVE IN SALVATION REALM


               (Isaiah 7:7-14).  2 CHRONICLES 28:5-6
                       Human’s daily life is full of challenges and adversities.
Conflicts are frequents among people and most of the time government has to intervene to end them as to eradicate their fall outs.   This government intervention demonstrates that commonly people are normally helped by others in secular world.

But what approach into salvation realm?

                As we read this scripture king Rezon of Syria and king Pekah son of
Ramaliah, the king of Israel  plotted to fight against Ahaz king
of Judah. 1 kings 12: 1-24.
                First of all,  remember that the people who stayed in Israel aside those who were kept into captivity  and the people of Judah were all chosen nation which God himself took out from the slavery of Egypt by his hand . It came to Pass, when they arrived in the land of promise, this man Jeroboam rebelled against the king Solomon and fled to Egypt . As he heard that king Solomon has died, he came back home.
As the whole assembly of Israel united to him for their King and the nation of God had split into two.  The resultant was that Ten tribes went up and their city was Samaria.
Ten the two remaining tribes which are Judah and Benjamin  were ruled by Rehoboam in the city of Judea.
The plot was to fight against Judah, destroy it and make Tabael’s son
a king over it.  Ahaz and his people had no one to rescue them except God.
                         What this teaches us?
                  Spiritually, king Rezin and king Pekah represent the demons and Tabael’s son whom were pretending to make a king over Judah represent Satan.
                   Remember that the church of God was hidden in the shadow of Old Testament, to be revealed  in New Testament by Jesus Christ. In parallel, the king Ahaz and his people represented the church of God. The scripture said that those two
kings plotted to fight against Judah. This was the work of Satan.
Since long ago,  Satan was plotting to make the God’s nation his slave
,  but God had planned the salvation  for his nation.  He planned for you to have salvation which is “Emanuel, God with us “  Luke 2: 1-2

                    The scripture says that they find the Baby wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger, meaning  humility spiritually.  Jesus Christ to be born into your heart, you must hear the Gospel, believe it while being humble.
Consider that two thousand years and over had passed with Jesus Christ being
born as King and Savior for those who believe .Today, He is in need to be born into your heart as king an  Savior.
                    The requirement for Jesus Christ to be born into your heart as King and Savior  is to listen to the gospel and believe with humility.
                     This is the starting point.
                     There are many people , many servants  whom Jesus Christ  is not  yet born into their hearts as king and their Savior Why? I  Because they have heard the gospel and din’t believe, which means they are exalting in front of God’s throne.
                                        Let’s talk about two kinds of exaltation:
-Worldly exaltation, in front of God’s throne.
  First is boasting because of his riches, his knowledge , his power, his method and many more. That is worldly exaltation.  God does not care about those things, but by his will and enduring love, knows that at his time and day you will hear the gospel, believe and become humble because of it,  then be saved.
Secondly is  attending the church, listening the gospel and miss to believe, because not only you proceed to trust in your thoughts, your knowledge, your method, but also you continue to commit evil deeds      This can not allow you that Jesus Christ be born into your heart. It brings curse and death. The scripture says that a baby was lying in manger where the cattle was kept because there was no room for him to be born.
              If the Bible says no room, spiritually this has connotation with human hearts Remember in the temple were entering Pharisees, Sadducee s and their followers who were full of the laws and Judaism.That s a reason why they didn’t know that he was born.  The same , the hearts which are full of the laws and doctrines can not allow Jesus Christ to be born in them as King and Savior.
That was why the good news that a king and savior for those who believe has born was first made known to the shepherd by angels.
               Spiritually , the shepherds represent the Pastors and the sheep represent the Believers and those people are find in the church.  The shepherds have heard the good news from the Angels and run quickly to see the Baby.   They meet him lying in the
manger.  The process that Jesus Christ may be born into your heart is to hear the Gospel   and to believe.

                                        May Jesus be born into your heart.
