EMMANUEL ... INCARNATION MEDITATIONS 2015... for the Monastic-At-Heart
The WORD+ Made Flesh... The Long-Awaited Incarnation... The EMMANUEL+
JOY to the world!
The LORD has COME!
Let Heaven and nature sing!
And the WORD+ was made Flesh,
and dwelt among us,
(and we beheld His+ Glory,
the Glory as of
of THE FATHER,)
full of grace and truth.
This HOLY ONE+ of Israel Who+ descended into human flesh through the Hebrew virgin Mariam came as EMMANUEL+ ... GOD-With-Us.
This is what EMMANUEL+ means, in application, for mankind.
Through JESUS ... and through HIM+ alone ... are we invited to know The FATHER.
No other entrance exists for mankind to come unto Our FATHER, hallowed be HIS Name, Who is in HEAVEN.
No other Way is open for mankind to COME unto Our FATHER, except through HIS Appointed MESSIAH+.
There is only one TRUTH+. This is that ONE TRUTH+ given to mankind through EMMANUEL+ :
Neither is there salvation
in any other:
for there is none other name
given among men,
whereby we must be saved.
In JESUS, and in JESUS alone, is the Life. That LIFE is the LIGHT of men... the only Life of men.
That LIFE is the TRUE Light; none other exists for mankind.
This is WHO+ EMMANUEL+ is, for mankind.
Let us Pray:
Dear Heavenly FATHER, we praise and glorify Thy Holy Name and the Name of Thy Holy SON+ JESUS CHRIST, the Word+ Made Flesh Who+ dwelt among us.
We magnify THEE. We worship THEE for Thy Great Glory.
LORD JESUS, O LIGHT of the world, we bow down before THEE+ to be filled with Thy+ Presence.
Glorify Thy+ Name in us as we glorify Thy+ Name here on earth.
Holy art THOU+, O CHRIST; Holy is Thy+ Name, O EMMANUEL+,
Both now and forever, ONE GOD: FATHER, SON+ , and HOLY SPIRIT, world without end to the ages of the ages. Amen
