Did Jesus gatecrash your last Christmas Party?

Dear Loved Ones,

As you know, may Birthday is Celebrated on Christmas Day. This is the same every year, the Celebration is in my honor.

During the time before the Celebration many people are shopping for gifts, there are radio announcements, TV commercials and in every part of the World everyone is talking about my Birthday as it gets closer and closer.

It is really very nice to know that at least once a year some people think of me.

As you know, the Celebration of my Birthday began many years ago as my Disciples and those who followed me like The Heavenly Host rejoiced in my earthly Birth.

At first people seemed to understand and be Thankful of all that I did for them but in these current times not many seem to know the reason for the Celebration.

Family and friends get together and have a lot of fun but they don’t know the real reason why they are Celebrating. I remember that each year there is a great feast in my honor. The dinner table is full of delicious foods, pastries, fruits, assorted nuts and chocolates. The decorations are exquisite and there are always many beautifully wrapped gifts.

But do you want to know something? I’m not always Invited.

I am the Guest of Honor and many don’t remember to send me an Invitation.

The Party is for me but when that great day comes I’m left outside, they close the door in my face and this saddens me because I want to be with them and share their table.

In Truth this doesn’t surprise me because in the last few years many close their doors to me. Since I’m not Invited, I decided to enter the Party last year without making any noise. I went in and stood in a corner.

They were all drinking; there were some who were drunk and telling off color jokes and laughing at everything. They were having a grand time.

To top it all this big fat man all dressed in red wearing a long white beard entered the room yelling Ho-Ho-Ho! He sat on the sofa and all the Children ran to him, saying: “Santa Claus, Santa Claus” as if the Party were in his honor!

During the Party people began to hug each other; I extended my arms waiting for someone to hug me but do you know… no-one hugged me, they didn’t even notice me, especially in their hearts.

Then they all began to share gifts. They opened them one by one with great expectation. When all had been opened, I looked to see if maybe there was one for me. What would you feel if on your Birthday everybody shared gifts and you did not get one? or they did what they wanted to do instead of considering your wishes.

I then understood that I was unwanted at that Party and quietly left.

Every year it gets worse. Most people only remember the gifts, the Parties, to eat and drink and not many remember me.

I would like for this Christmas that you allow me to enter into your life your heart is a gift that I will Treasure and it will give me great pleasure to be your Friend because I Love you and always have.

I would like you to recognize the fact that over two thousand years ago I came to this World to give my Life for you and on the Cross, I knew your Name and took your shame, I came to save you and to set you free from the control of Sin so you would no longer be in bondage but sadly many still choose to be.

John 8:34-36 Jesus replied, “I tell you the Truth everyone who Sins is a slave to Sin. Now a Slave has no permanent place in the family but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free you will be free indeed.

1 John 3:9 No one who is Born of God will continue to Sin because God’s seed remains in him, he cannot go on Sinning because he has been Born of God.

Today, I want that you believe with all your Heart that you have been set free, repent and come Close to me and I will come Close to you, please don’t keep me at a distance, it hurts to be apart from you.

I want to share something with you. We will have our own Celebration, a Grandiose Party that no one has ever imagined, a Spectacular Spiritual Party. I’ve made all the arrangements for you and we are waiting on your reply so you can join us.

heavenly

Today I am sending out many Invitations and there is an Invitation for you. I want to know if you wish to attend and I have made a reservation for you so you can come and I have written your Name with golden letters in my Great Guest Book but you still need to reply so you can enjoy the Celebration.

Only those on the Guest List are Invited to the Party.

Those who don’t accept my Invitation will be left outside and this will grieve me greatly, so be prepared because I want you to be part of our Wonderful Party.

See you soon… I Love you and always will – Jesus Christ
