Special Christmas and New Year Message

I heartily bring you warmest greetings and glad tidings in the name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ; the author and finisher of our faith and the reason for this Christmas season. With great joy and thanksgiving in my heart, I humbly say, may grace, mercy, love, life and peace from God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, be unto you.

Honestly, my beloved children, friends, well-wishers and distinguished peoples of goodwill all over the world, it is obvious and right that you and I must celebrate our miraculous survival this year. Sincerely speaking, this year is very dangerous and it claimed millions of lives due to hardship, hunger, kidnappings, ritual killings, many social ills, sicknesses and the greatest killer, the Corona virus pandemic (Covid-19) from China, which did not only waste millions of lives, but destroyed the world economy and many valuable things. Indeed, Covid-19, disrupted many activities in the world and yet God spared our lives.

The above reasons are why I loudly say repeatedly that our survival this year is entirely the act of God Almighty. May the Most High God, who never sleeps nor slumber be praised from everlasting to everlasting in Jesus name, Amen.

We are alive not because of our righteousness or goodness, but for God’s sake/mercies. Whether the world believes it or not God truly exists and He manifests Himself to everyone in various ways. Therefore, let those who truly love and believe in Him, join me to mightily exult, honour, worship and praise Him. Let us show Him, Great Appreciation for all His love, goodness and kindness to us. Honestly, I am exceedingly excited and I do not know how to greatly show my faithful God, Holy/Mighty appreciation. May you join me to heartily and respectfully worship God with these Psalms; “Praise the LORD, all nations! Extol him, all peoples! For great is his steadfast love toward us; and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever. Praise the LORD!” (Psalm 117); “If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, let Israel now say if it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us, then they would have swallowed us up alive, when their anger was kindled against us; then the flood would have swept us away, the torrent would have gone over us; then over us would have gone the raging waters. Blessed be the LORD, who has not given us as prey to their teeth! We have escaped as a bird from the snare of the fowlers; the snare is broken, and we have escaped! Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.” (Psalm 124).

I am sure that no matter how we thank Him, it will never be enough, hence, may we gladly say, ‘To God be the glory Amen.’

CHRISTMAS:

Many people misinterpret Christmas. We should not see the Christmas season as only a period of merriment, sharing gifts and partying, but most importantly, Christmas symbolizes God’s love and salvation for mankind. Hence, the Bible says; “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God sent the Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.” (John 3: 16-17), “He came to his own home, and his own people received him not. But to all who received him, who believed in his name, he gave power to become children of God; who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.” (John 1:11-13)

May I appeal to all those who survived this year to awesomely celebrate this special Christmas wisely and give God His due respect/honour. Praise the Lord, Hallelujah!

CONDOLENCES:

I sincerely sympathise with those who lost their loved ones and relatives this year either by the dangerous Covid19 pandemic, sicknesses, natural disasters, etc. May God console you and help you to bear these losses.

MY HUMBLE ADVICE:

If you want to succeed, prosper, defeat all your enemies, have perfect protection and live happily, you must make the supreme God Almighty your refuge, fortress, shelter and stronghold. This was the secret of King David and other servants of God before us. The Bible says; “Because you have made the LORD your refuge, the Most High your habitation, no evil shall befall you, no scourge come near your tent.” (Psalm 91:9-10).

Always open your door for God Almighty anytime He knocks or wants to come in, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.” (Revelation 3:20)

No matter what, please, do not abandon God or run away from Him. Do your best to always seek Him and do His will because the bible says, “I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me. ” (Proverbs 8:17); “The LORD is with you, while you are with him. If you seek him, he will be found by you, but if you forsake him, he will forsake you.” (2nd Chronicles 15:1-2)

MY SPECIAL PRAYER/WISHES:

As the Prophet, Child and Servant of the Most High God, standing on His promises and on His son our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, my Solid Rock, Life and Salvation and believing in His messenger and our comforter, the Holy Spirit; I now pray for you: “May God who protected you this year, protect/be with you the more next year. May He prosper you and may He not allow your enemies to triumph over you, may your enemies not humiliate nor laugh at you, nor succeed to put you to shame. May those who are interested in your downfall/destruction not succeed. May God make you one of His children and give you His Salvation, Holiness and Righteousness, so that you will live with Him in His kingdom forever. I pray that the everlasting God will uphold you, bless you, give you long life and good health and fulfil all the desires of your heart, according to His will in Jesus name, Amen.”

May I sincerely and humbly, thank you for all the GOOD THINGS you have done for God, mankind and me this year. Remain blessed and may God reward you abundantly.

I wish you well. Once again, I heartily wish you a very Merry Christmas and prosperous new Year.

Yours in the service of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, His Grace, The Most Rev.
