Yea, LORD, We Greet THEE+ !



O COME, LET US ADORE HIM+ !


NATIVITY AND ST. JEROME'S CAVE


Yea, LORD, we greet THEE+

born this*** happy morning, 

JESUS , to  THEE+ be all glory given. 

WORD+ of The FATHER, 

now in flesh appearing

O COME LET US ADORE HIM+ !

O COME LET US ADORE HIM+ !

O COME LET US ADORE HIM+ ,

CHRIST the LORD !

+  +  +

CHILD+ , for us sinners,

poor and in the manger,

we would embrace THEE+ 

with love and awe. 

Who would not love THEE+ , 
loving us so dearly ?

O COME LET US ADORE HIM+ !

O COME LET US ADORE HIM+ !

O COME LET US ADORE HIM+ ,

CHRIST the LORD !


[*** Please Note: Man does not know the exact date of the birth of The LORD JESUS, although many good guesses and arguments have been established.  We are only given a "season" in the Scriptures and the facts of 1) shepherds were watching in the fields at night , and 2) it was at the time of the Roman taxation. We are given no instructions whatsoever about "celebrating" the birth of JESUS; His+ death is to be remembered, according to Scripture.

So during the INCARNATION season, we remember for WHAT purpose HE+ became INCARNATE:  for the suffering of death. 

Both Western and Eastern branches of Christianity have arbitrarily agreed on Dec. 25 for whatever reasons, only the Eastern Christians follow the Julian calendar, which is 13 days behind the Gregorian calendar. So it all makes for confusion !  

The IMPORTANT thing is to recognize that Our LORD JESUS CHRIST, the Eternal WORD+ of The FATHER,  was made INCARNATE at one point in time, about 2000 years ago, and that was for the suffering of death.

HE+ entered into time in order to rescue the Adamic race from the grip of satan, the father of lies. HE+ became our CHRISTUS VICTOR and triumphed over death, hell, and the grave ... crushing the head of satan who had bruised HIS+ heel. 

So we here at the Order of the GOOD SHEPHERD+  focus on the FACT of the INCARNATION and join with Christians who rejoice over His+ Coming in the likeness of Adamic flesh ~  regardless of "when" it chronologically occurred. ]
