Thank you for the Gift YOU Bring
There is an abundance of historical documentation that credits the Emperor Constantine (Emperor of Rome 307 – 337) for selecting December 25 as the day to celebrate the birth of Christ. Breathe! The Emperor is also credited with organizing and establishing Christianity as the official religion; Sunday as “the official day” of worship; tax deductible status of the church...but wait there’s more!
The Creed of Nicaea, the predecessor to the Nicene Creed, a proclamation of faith still used by many Christian denominations today was created under the Emperor as well. By far Constantine’s greatest impact was in demanding the compilation of sacred text to create the Bible. It is through the Bible that we hear of the Love of God and the profound message of the Christ. Regardless of the liberal editing that may have occurred or the scriptures that may have been left out, it is the Bible that informs us of the coming of the Christ, The Presence of Eternal Goodness and the Kingdom of Love and Light that can be accessed through each of us.
Whether we call him Jesus, and others call Him, Yeshua or Essa, the fact is HE came! “I came that you may have life and have it more abundantly.” He took on Flesh and walked the earth to remind us to remember who we really are…Creations of Infinite Love and Intelligence. The True Nature of who we are does not start with our being born here nor does it die here. We are not something separate - from but we are part of vast mystical Oneness. We were strategically born on this planet, at this time to Let Love express through us in specific ways. We are expressions of the One as Jesus was an expression of the One. “this work and greater works shall you do”.
Every Christmas we commemorate the Birth of Jesus. But the real celebration comes when we allow personal recognition of the Christ nature to be born and grow Itself within us. Thank You For The Gift You Bring! The Christ knocks at the door of our Being constantly that we may open up, even more, to the power endowed by the Creator. Thank You For The Gift You Bring! The nature of the Christ teaches us how to allow power to flow through us and create lives so fulfilled and abundant we can’t even imagine. IThank You For The Gift You Bring! However every once and awhile, because of Grace, we get a glimpse of the greater reality.
While the exact date of Yeshua/Jesus’s birth may be questionable, the impact of His coming is profound, beyond a doubt. This Christmas let the gift of the Christ be born/renewed in you. That, raises the vibration of the Gift/s We Bring! It’s Time Beloved!
Come, Oh Come and let us celebrate together, the Birth of the Christ Child on Earth.
And Now may Sacred Unity and the Grace of the Christ be made manifest in us all!
