A Month to Prepare.

Dear Friend,

Merry Christmas!!! What a joy to celebrate the birth of Our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ, The Son of The Living God. Friend, some would want us to just say “happy holidays” but you and I know the reason for this season and it is no ordinary holiday that is why the world is afraid of it. With joy declare Merry Christmas!! 
I pray that all is well with you and your household. My wife and I are well and are forever thankful to God for HIS goodness and faithfulness towards us. Friend, we bless His Name for having enabled each one of us all to see the end of this year.
This month is A Month to Prepare.
Prepare for promises to be fulfilled
The Birth of Jesus Christ, whom every Bible promise kept pointing to, was born at the appointed time of God. God is always on time. In Luke 2: 28-38, we read of Simeon and Anna, who faithfully had been expectantly waiting for God to accomplish that which He had promised, and true enough, at that very hour, before their very eyes, the promises were fulfilled as the baby Jesus was brought into the temple. Friend, prepare for your God given promises to be fulfilled in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
Remember, when Joshua was about to die, he said…"Now I am about to go the way of all the earth. You know with all your heart and soul that not one of all the good promises the LORD your God gave you has failed. Every promise has been fulfilled; not one has failed.” Joshua 23:14. You may say, “I have waited too long, things are not changing; I need a miracle now!” Friend, the good news for you is - We have a God that never fails. In Proverbs 23:18 we read, “For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off”. Expect fulfillment of God’s promises in your life even as this year comes to an end. God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it?or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? (Numbers 23:19)
Time will not destroy God’s promises to you
 Friend, God made a promise in Genesis where He declared that the seed of a woman would come and crush the head of the serpent. (Genesis 3:15). In Isaiah 7:13-14, He tells us the The Seed will be born of a virgin and will be called Immanuel; In Isaiah 9:6, He tells us the Names of The Seed including, Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace. Friend, the birth of Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of the beautiful promises of God. Never forget that God is a Promise Keeper. He is also a Promise Fulfiller. He is true to HIS WORD. God honors His Word and has lifted it above HIS Name, Amen.  Therefore, your God given promise will not fail. Has God placed a promise in your heart, a dream, or a vision? Get ready for it to be fulfilled in Jesus Faithful Name, Amen. His delays are not His denials. He hath made everything beautiful in his time: (Ecclesiastes 3:11a).
Friend, prepare for a shift
Yes, friend, prepare also for a shift in your situation this month. Prepare to cross over, prepare to celebrate, prepare to be confounded at what God is going to do. Mary and Joseph, who were unknown, became parents of the King of kings. Prepare for an uncommon shift in your situation in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen. Prepare to move, prepare to enlarge, prepare for increase, prepare to be healed. Prepare for your dear one to come home – I hear a loud call – Prepare!
Friend, Prepare! Prepare! Prepare!
My wife and I wish you a Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year!
