But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, so that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. Because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through the gracious act of God. Galatians 4:4-7.
Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.” Mark 1:14-15.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
Today is the day of Salvation. To Me it is always “today,” always “now,” but there is a fullness of time. A window of time and a door of eternity is there for each of you, as it was for My Son. He came down from Heaven into your window of time at just the time when all was in place for the grace that was always to be yours in Him. Of His fullness you have all received, grace on top of grace. The layers of time that stack up to form the edifice that will lift you to eternity. The full connection of perfection. Complete, lacking in nothing.
When the fullness of time came, I sent forth Jesus, born of Mary according to the flesh but as My Son according to the Spirit, to redeem those who were near and those who were far and to make you all one in Me.
What is the fullness of time? The fullness of the times is the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things on the earth. Ephesians 1:10. In Him you are complete. That means full. No room for anything else but Him, and in Him are all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. In Him is everything that was made, for through and by Him I created all things both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything. For it was My good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him, and through Him to reconcile all things to Myself, having made peace through the blood of His cross; through Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven. And in Him I have qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light. Colossians 2:16-20.
In Him you have redemption, the forgiveness of your sins by His blood. He has released you from your sins by His blood, and made you a kingdom of priests, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, citizens of My Kingdom and a people set apart to dwell in My marvelous light while the world walks in darkness. But in Jesus, in the fullness of times, in prophecies fulfilled, I rescued you from the domain of darkness, and transferred you to the kingdom of My beloved Son, your Redeemer, Savior and Lord.
Though I am currently invisible to you, human eye cannot sustain the light of My glory, you can see Me in Jesus. And He is the firstborn of all creation. And yet today you celebrate His presence among you as one like you, from a baby laid in a manger in Bethlehem all the way to the crucified savior laid in a tomb in the garden below Calvary, but it did not stop there, it continued on to the glorious Lord raised by Me from the dead to walk among you once more and then return to Me. And it was then He gave you the greatest gift of all, My Holy Spirit to be in you and with you forever. Joined with Me as one spirit from then on, without end.
Jesus. Never forget who He is to you. And it is summed up in one word: everything. If you had to describe Jesus in one word, that is the word you would use. EVERYTHING. The fullness of the times is the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things on the earth. Ephesians 1:10. He is your everything. Whatever the need, He fills it. You have everything when you have Him. And I gave Him to you. You own Him. He is My gift to you. Forever serving you, forever giving life to you, forever interceding for you, forever loving you and giving His life for you.
You are redeemed, redeemed forever. He is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world that Abraham prophesied I would provide as he ascended Mt. Moriah to obey My voice. And I told him, “In your Seed all the nations of the earth shall be BLESSED, because you OBEYED MY VOICE.” Genesis 22:18. So then, those of you who are of faith are BLESSED with Abraham, the believer. Galatians 3:9. I taught him the Gospel ahead of time, he was the Day of Jesus and rejoiced. And so will you if you understand.
Adam shut Me out of the world I had made and out of his life and the lives of his descendants, but I looked for someone that would authorize Me again to enter into and act in the earth realm. Abraham was that man. I made a Covenant with him and he joined. This is very important to you and all on earth because Abraham authorized Me to enter the earth realm and work on your behalf to free you from the slavery of sin and death and redeem you from the curse of the law. And by his faith and obedience in passing the faith to his descendants and household, Genesis 18:19, the way was opened, a line was designated by Covenant, to bring forth into the earth realm the promised Messiah, God made man, in My Son Jesus, a descendant of Abraham in the line of Judah in the line of David, My chosen men who chose Me. All through the faith and obedience of one man, Abraham, your father in the faith.
Receive the good news today, it has the power to save you and raise you up to eternal life beginning NOW. Be like the shepherds watching their flocks that night in Bethlehem when the fulfillment of time came and Heaven reached down and met earth in a kiss of shalom peace. My glorious light lit up the night sky and My angel appeared bring the good news, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Luke 2:10-12. They responded immediately to that good news! “The shepherds said to one another, “Let us go straight to Bethlehem then, and see this thing that has happened which the Lord has made known to us.” Luke 2:15. And immediately they made a beeline to Bethlehem and found their way to Mary and Joseph, and the baby as He lay in the manger. Luke 2:16. And when they had seen all this, they made known the statement which had been told them about this Child. Right away they became witnesses of the good news! Luke 2:17 And all who heard it wondered at the things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary treasured all these things, pondering them in her heart. Luke 2:18-19. The shepherds the went back to their work and homes, glorifying and praising God for all that they had heard and seen, just as had been told them. Luke 2:20.
I would like all to respond to the good news immediately when they hear it just as the shepherds did that night. They immediately sought Him, they received Him and believed, then they shared the good news with everyone they met and all the while they were glorifying and praising Me for all I had shown them.
I love you. You know much more now than the shepherds did then, for all they saw was the baby that changed everything, but you have seen how everything changed, you are on this side of the Cross and the Resurrection! You have so much more to share and to glorify in.
I love you. I gave you a gift named Jesus and in Him and with Him and through Him I gave you everything. You have it ALL. You are complete for every good work. Merry Christmas for My heart to yours.
