The Gift

Good Morning

He purposed the law securely
Underneath His seat of mercy
Did the design point to us
Will there be some controversy

Ark of the covenant

I pray “The Light” of Christmas burn brighter and brighter in our hearts, in the coming days.
May The Light of our Savior, Jesus, born to deliver us, give unto us wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of God’s great love.
May Christ open for us “The Gift”, with new understanding in the meaning of our salvation.
May we function fully in the gifts as He wills.
My prayer is that we hold tight “The Gift” of the spirit of Christmas. May we be present and dwell in His Presence.

Ark of the covenant 2

The Gift
Where Love Meets Me

The design was so ornate
Lavishly glistening with gold
What is it about this gift
What a story this must hold

The carvings that sit atop
Angels and Seraphim
What are they sheltering
Under the delicate intricate trim

They say one is a Cherubim
What can all this mean
Are they guarding a mystery
Something I’ve heard not yet seen

This gift so gloriously fashioned
There is something priceless inside
This gift fashioned in gold
The place His presence abides

The surrounding of their wings
Extended covering the top
Yes they’re awaiting something special
Likened to a MASTER’S workshop

Lavishly covered in pure gold
The story now has been told
It is the place of covering
The Covenant Ark of His abode

The Ark of His Covenant
The Place of His Presence
Where He writes upon our heart
Inside our heart the law is evidenced

He purposed the law securely
Underneath His seat of mercy
Does this design point to us
Will there be some controversy

His presence is here
The seat where He abides
Covered by wings so large
A safe place where we can hide

The place of eternal protection
Guarded shelter under His wings
A place for perfect atoning
Covered only by His anointing

The gift where love meets me
Covering my every flaw
His Golden Ark of Covenant
Mercy the gift of eternal awe

Mercy was placed atop
Covering His Holy law
Because His grace is needed
When we sin and helplessly fall

His gift so intricately wrapped
Covered with purest gold
The greatest Christmas Gift
More precious than we know

Covered by His wings
The place His blood was applied
Because mercy triumphs over law
His salvation securely supplied

The golden Christmas present
Delivered to sinful man
Has been here from the beginning
Salvations Gift evident in the plans

A few years ago, during advent, I was asked to introduce and light the love candle during service. As I sought The Lord about His love He revealed the gift He had wrapped in gold. This gift that keeps giving was given to His people from the beginning after taking them out of Egypt.

This gift, covered in gold, and commanded to be placed in the Holy of Holies. He gave me a very profound revelation of the Ark of His covenant being the most perfect gift to deliver at Christmas and the love He was planning to make manifest when the time was right. What a gift, what a story.

I saw for the first time the gift of His mercy seat, the gold ornate covering that set atop the Ark, Inside the Ark was the law of the commandments, commanded by God to be placed inside the Ark. The Ark of His Covenant was carried upon the shoulders of the priests and accompanied the children of Israel wherever they went. The Tabernacle, the place of encounters housed the Ark at the Center of their worship.

God knew we would never be able to fulfill and keep the commandments in ourselves. The plan of His salvation under Jesus shed blood was sealed from the beginning.

Ephesians 2:4-6 tells of His richness. But God, who is rich (wrapped our gift in gold)  in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

Oh the gift of His Richness and Mercy. To the season there is revealed the reason.

tis the season tis the Reason

Psalm 91:4 says we take refuge under His Wings. Covered by His Mercy, under His Wings is our refuge. May we never profane or make common the Holy Gift from God, His salvation is a Holy gift, delivered through the greatest sacrifice known to man. May our salvation and our right to worship call us to a higher place of reverence in Him.

The Gift, The Christ, Our Lord.

God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon 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
