Joy To The World

Joy to the world, the Lord is come.

Let earth receive her King.

Let every heart prepare Him room,

And Heaven and nature sing,

And Heaven and nature sing,

And Heaven, and Heaven and nature sing.

He rules the world with Truth and Grace

And lets the nations prove

The glory of His righteousness,

And wonders of His love,

And wonders of His love,

And wonders, and wonders of His love.


The first thing I would like to say is, “We need you beloved friend like we need the air we breathe, and the water we drink. I see the four corners of a great sheet being rolled inward, wrapping us together into a wonderful single package.”

Isn’t our Savior glorious, appearing as His own. He says, “I know you need me, but I want you to know, I need you too.” Oh, the grace!

Feel His Presence in you? And I know you have, and you do. “Feel the Life that I am, in you?  It is I in you. I shall increase, this love that I am through you, until the whole of the earth shall know Me. Let go now, and allow, for I your Redeemer am come.”

Oh, how great it is, this Christ in you!

This very wonderful Presence, witnessed by the Holy Spirit, quickens and makes alive, makes us run with the wind; makes us whole. This is our Savior, that love; our redemption; the seal in our foreheads, the awakening unto righteousness; the promise of God.

This is “Joy To The World.” Salvation is awakening all men.

“For we know that when He shall appear, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.” ( As He Is, The Touch, and Fulfillment of Love ) We shall be like Him because we see Him as He is.

He has appeared; He is come, His wonderful Presence, His love for one another; His peace, His joy, His righteousness. He is our re-reward; our security, and assurance. “Let Heaven and nature sing the wonders of His love.”

He was not recognized by most in His first appearing. You remember even John The Baptist sent his disciples to inquire of Jesus if He was the One or should they look for another to come. However, this time His wonderful love is witnessing in our hearts that He is come; The Very Lord Jesus Christ come within men.

His warming Presence, how precious it is. How we see Him so sweet in one another. We come into His Presence, vividly seeing His face in all mankind – gifts so wonderful it cannot be described.

This is the Lord Jesus Christ who has ascended upon high; given Himself to all mankind, to lead and guide us in this, the new Creation. From the day the Holy Spirit was given in the Upper Room, He has been seated upon the throne of men’s hearts, beckoning, gently beckoning, “Come unto Me.”

(Holy Spirit, the gentle open heart of God)

This Presence is so awesome, so Holy, so real. The whisper of His voice dispels the appearance of mountains around us.

We acknowledge You Precious Lamb, Our Love. We receive You in Your Glorious Light. We bow to Your Righteousness, and give thanks for lifting us Home to Father.

Amen and Love,
