“Since you are precious in My sight, you are honored and I love you.” Isaiah 43:4.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:

I am mindful of you. I am on your side. Even when you are in disobedience, I love you and forgive you in My Son. Know this: you are always precious in My sight. And that is the message of Christmas to each heart from My heart: YOU ARE PRECIOUS IN MY SIGHT. My treasure, My masterpiece, and My delight! And if you want to read it as My message to you in the Bible, here it is: “Since you are precious in My sight, you are honored and I love you.” Isaiah 43:4.

You may be wondering how precious you can be when you have sinned and disobeyed Me but listen to My Words as written by My prophet Isaiah, “I, even I, am the one who wipes out your transgressions for My own sake and I will not remember your sins.” Isaiah 43:25. Could My answer be any clearer? And how did I wipe out all your sins but still satisfy divine justice and extract the penalty that the wages of sin is death, eternal death? I did it for you in My Son. And that is Christmas. It is about you just as much as it is about My Son, for there is only one reason He was born that night in Bethlehem: YOU. No  other reason He had to do what He did but for YOU.

Every good thing given and every perfect gift comes down from Me, the Father of lights in whom there is  no darkness at all. James 1:17. And My most perfect gift to you that gives you everything? My Son and with Him comes My Holy Spirit. My Son is My gift to the world, to everyone who will receive Him, and My Holy Spirit is My gift to His body, the Church—to all who are in Christ. In order for My Spirit to unite with your spirit you must have a living spirit and that only happens when you are born again in Christ and I light your lamp (spirit) with the Light of the world, the Anointed and with Him comes His anointing.

I have wiped out your transgressions like a thick cloud and your sins like a heavy mist. Return to Me for I have redeemed you. Isaiah 44:22. Turn to Me and be saved all the ends of the earth. Isaiah 45:22.

In My Son I gave you My chosen One in whom is all My delight, My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased. I did not spare My own Son but delivered Him over for you all (He paid the ransom for every person from the beginning to the end of time in His one sacrifice of Himself (1 Timothy 2:6), will I not also with Him freely give you ALL things? Romans 8:32. And now you have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit who is from Me, so that you may know the things freely given to you by Me. 1 Corinthians 2:12. And the Holy Spirit witnesses with your spirit that you are My children and as such, My heirs, joint heirs with Christ. Romans 8:16-17. And He is the firstborn, so you have the double portion. Isaiah 61:7. And the Holy Spirit testifies to you that your sins and offenses I remember NO MORE. Hebrews 10:17. Why? Because of Christmas and all that followed from that in the Christ that changed everything for you for time and eternity. I made Him who knew no sin to be sin on your behalf, so that you might become the righteousness of God in Him. 2 Corinthians 5:21.

I was in Christ reconciling the world to Myself, not counting your trespasses against you. 2 Corinthians 5:19. This was My plan from before the foundation of the world. 1 Peter 1:18-19. I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have drawn you with lovingkindness. Jeremiah 31:3. In Jesus, you see Me, and in Him I drew you with human cords, with bonds of love, and I became to you as one who lifts a little child to the cheek, and I bent down to feed you, but you have not realized that I am your healer, that I am the one who takes you in My arms, who takes you by the hand, and teaches you the way you should walk. Hosea 11:3-4; Isaiah 31:21.

But I gaze upon you from my dwelling place, like shimmering heat in the sunshine, like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest, Isaiah 18:4, and call to your heart. Revelation 3:20. If you hear the voice of the good Shepherd and open your heart, He will come in to dine with you and be with you forever. And with Him I give you everything. He pours My Spirit out upon you, into your heart, and you have full access to Me. And I seal you in Him, lavishing My grace upon you, and giving you the Kingdom. And My Spirit guides you to all truth and leads you in the Way you should walk. He leads you on level ground so that there is no stumbling, but if you turn aside and stumble, your great good Shepherd is there to lead you through and out of the dark valley of the shadow of death to a table of plenty in the wilderness in the sight of your enemies. Let Me fill your cup, the vessel of your life, with good till it overflows and floods the earth with the knowledge of My glory as the waters cover the sea. Be an ambassador of reconciliation, telling the good news of My Son. And what is that good news? Go back to Bethlehem and see.

The night My Son was born according to His humanity, of course He is from eternity according to the Spirit, there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. My angel appeared to them, and the glory shone around them, and they were struck with fearful awe. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.” Now let Me finish that sentence, “Do not be afraid, I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people: you are precious in My sight, you are honored and I love you, it is I, even I, who wipe out your transgressions for My own sake and I will not remember your sins. And the heavens opened and a multitude of My host proclaimed, “Glory to God in the highest and on earth good will towards men!” Yes, I will accomplish all My good will for you in Jesus. Isaiah 46:10. And to Him every knee shall bow in joyful worship and praise for all the good that has come to you freely in Him. In Heaven they are still praising in awesome wonder all that I have done for them in Jesus, “Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength, and honor and glory and praise!” Revelation 5:13 Why? Listen to the cry of the saints in Heaven, “because you were slain, and with Your blood You purchased for God persons from every tribe and language and people and nation. You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth.” Revelation 5:9-10.

And do not make the mistake, as some do, of saying that My promises of love are addressed to My people Israel in the Old Testament and are not for you. But let Me assure you that every promise and good word in the Bible, Old and New Testaments, are for YOU who are in Christ. How is that? Have you never read the letters of Paul? I revealed to him the mystery hidden from ages past and revealed in Christ to My holy prophets and apostles. “This mystery is that through the gospel the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel, members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise in Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 3:6. “Therefore, remember that formerly you who are Gentiles by birth and called “uncircumcised” by those who call themselves “the circumcision” (which is done in the body by human hands)— remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, by setting aside in his flesh the law with its commands and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new humanity out of the two, thus making peace, and in one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility. He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near. For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit. Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit. Ephesians 2:11-22.

“If the part of the dough offered as firstfruits is holy, then the whole batch is holy; if the root is holy, so are the branches. If some of the branches have been broken off, and you, though a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing sap from the olive root, do not consider yourself to be superior to those other branches. If you do, consider this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you.” Romans 11:16-18.

And finally, “And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to promise.” Galatians 3:27. “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”—in order that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we would receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.” Galatians 3:13-14.

I honored you by giving you the best: My Son. And in Him, I gave you everything, including Myself and My Kingdom. In Him are all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge, all My magnificent promises, all the beauty, all the glory, all the riches, abundant life, eternal life. Everything good and everything perfect is in Him as it comes to you from Me. All in One little package in Bethlehem—that you could hold and who holds you. And He brings you back into My bosom, your true home and place of rest, in the grace in which you now stand by faith in Him who loved you and gave His eternal life for you so that you would live forever.

I love you and that is why I gave you Jesus. Jesus brought the New Covenant, which has all the promises of the old made new and bigger in Jesus with the promise of eternal life fulfilled, all sins gone in His sacrifice once for all, and every spiritual blessing in Heaven bestowed on you. Everything is now “yes” to you in Jesus, in the Beloved. And as He is so are you in this world.

Don’t miss your visitation of divine revelation and be a darkened nation far from Me, who came to set you free, who came to set you free. Lift your banner, sound the trumpet, and know that I am King. And My banner over you is love. So join your voices and sing of the lovingkindness of your Lord, of the lovingkindness of your Lord.
