Out for Delivery

The Prophecy-The Promise-The Praise-The Peace

The angles and the heavenly host praised, saying “Glory to God in the highest.”
Today we are assured their praise was with full understanding of Jesus mission, The purpose of His coming, The Cross. The story of Jesus born as our Perfect Spotless Sacrificial Lamb making legal entry becomes more evident at His death, from the first announcement to shepherds.


…The long awaited prophecy, delivered, when the time had come. And we find ourselves with a front row seat at the opening scene as all of heaven rejoiced before shepherds. The plan from before the foundation of the world was the News of the day. Today.

Was it the angelic praise? Could it have been hearing the heavenly host declaration? Or was it the promise of peace on earth and goodwill toward men that made the shepherds go and see and seek? Or was it the magnitude of all of the above?
I can only imagine their excitement in this Holy night. Saying to one another let’s go see this thing that has come to pass that God has made known to us.

Oh the magnitude of The First Christmas Message! I can feel the Spirit Of rejoicing.

“And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!” So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven that the shepherds said to one another, “Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us.””
Luke 2:13-15 NKJV

Out for Delivery

Good news your package is set for delivery today. Exciting news your package is out for delivery today.

Why now this time of travel

I don’t recall mention of this

No it was Hail Mary highly favored

I’ve been sent to tell you this


You shall conceive and bring forth a Son

You are to call His Name Jesus

Journey to Bethlehem now part of the story

House of bread, now Living He frees us


But we can look back now

At the traditions we’ve been taught

Have we forsaken reality

Is it exactly as we thought


It really wasn’t so silent

On that starry night

Only those engaged

Were aware of this holy sight


The journey was very grueling

Ninety miles in that day

Was an arduous event

For the two who were in the way


The journey had taken a toll

You know on Mary in her condition

She probably wasn’t complaining

Perhaps unsettled in the transition


For the two it wasn’t really calm

Many were bustling all around

Gathering into the village

To register each in their own town


As history has painted

Oh A glorious sight indeed

But only to those who had chosen

To bow their ear His Voice did heed


For the two who walked this out

Their commitment was experiential

But to those of us who read

We know every detail was very essential


He was working His plan of salvation

God was going to redeem mankind

The plan indeed had been written

Had its beginning long before this time


A decree was written then issued

Requiring that all must register

A census now would be gathered

Could Caesar know about our visitor from heaven


Why now the need to take a count

What better timing of events to record

Those written and spoken by the prophets

Not one minute detail could be ignored


Coming up from Nazareth

What did Joseph see

The journey dangerous and hard

Delivering to us, eternity


Wait this is just a business journey

To Bethlehem for the two

But how was Mary feeling

Aware of what was to ensue


Oh this seat we have been given

To view our Masters satisfaction

They however were living this out

Instructed only to follow a lawful action


When the days had been accomplished

Mary’s delivery time did come

All of heaven stooped to watch

The Birth of Jesus her newborn Son


Yes we should keep records

Of such marvelous timely events

We who sit in the stadium of time

Watching and waiting for redemptions ascent


He came to suffer

Our sacrifice to die

But not once in Heaven is it recorded

That this event would make them cry


For all of Heaven rejoiced

The Angels made a proclamation

Because He entered in legally

Heavens sacrifice for salvation


A glorious night yes I’ll say

When shepherds heard the news

Today in the city of David

Good News, God’s gift was delivered for you

Last year as I reread the birth of Christ, from Luke’s gospel it became apparent to me that delivery messages are exactly the message God used, or should I say the companies were using God’s original message. Your package has been delivered, said two thousand plus years ago. And today is still the most heralded message. The message poured out with angelic rejoicing as the heavens opened above Temple Shepherds in the field who were watching and keeping the sheep.


Yes The Child born of a virgin, the promised Messiah, the One who would be born to save His people from their sins, the One to be a great light to those who sat in darkness,  had been prophesied. The town, the mission, and the reason were known, but some still missed the most heralded news known to man.

Good News

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

Today the long awaited arrival of Gods special delivery had come.

Good News your package has been delivered. Oh what glorious News. Have you been tracking The Arrival?

God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord cause His countenance to rise upon you and give you Shalom.

Until next time, thank you for listening with me. Laurette

Merry Christmas
