12 Days Of Christmas: The Deliverer


christmas

Christmas is in less than 3 days away. There’s last minute things to be done, gifts to be wrapped (and if you’re making homemade gifts, you have to get them done first…), and food to be made (but we got lots of cookie dough today, so I’m all set. haha!). Christmas Eve is the first day of Hanukkah, also: and we’re very excited to celebrate Hanukkah during Christmas!

My family and I sat down last night and watched some videos. We watched a few by Carman: his songs changed my Dad’s life and hit him hard, so listening to what was the beginning of my Dad’s testimony… It was cool. We also listened to Rich Mullins.  One of the songs we listened to was My Deliverer. And of course we had all heard the song before. But it meant so much, all over again. I thought I’d share with y’all the song and my heart a bit.

Joseph took his wife and her child and they went to Africa
To escape the rage of a deadly king
There along the banks of the Nile, Jesus listened to the song
That the captive children used to sing
They were singin’
My Deliverer is coming, my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming, my Deliverer is standing by
Through a dry and thirsty land, water from the Kenyon heights
Pours itself out of Lake Sangra’s broken heart
There in the Sahara winds Jesus heard the whole world cry
For the healing that would flow from His own scars
The world was singing
My Deliverer is coming, my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming, my Deliverer is standing by
He will never break His promise, He has written it upon the sky
My Deliverer is coming, my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming, my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming, my Deliverer is standing by
I will never doubt His promise though I doubt my heart, I doubt my eyes
My Deliverer is coming, my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming, my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming, my Deliverer is standing by
He will never break His promise though the stars should break faith with the sky
My Deliverer is coming, my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming, my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming, my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming, my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming, my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming, my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming, my Deliverer is standing by
My Deliverer is coming
Our Deliverer.
Yeshua Messiah. He is Love. He is Hope. He came, died, and rose again.
Why? Why why why? Why would the son of JEHOVAH GOD come and be ridiculed and crucified? Even for the ones who hated him and killed him? Why would he go through such agony?
  Yeshua fulfilled the prophesies. Yahweh does not break promises: Yeshua came to fulfill the Lord’s Word. To be a Light. To be the Way.  All shall come to pass, as it is written, as the Lord has said.
 Messiah died and rose again so we could have LIFE through Him, the Light.
There is Hope. There is Hope through Yeshua Messiah. Through Him only. He is the Way- He came so that we could truly find JOY. That is what has been shown to me, so clearly, with such amazement and joy and vigor: Yeshua gave us hope. If we have faith in Yahweh, then true joy will be in our hearts.
  Hanukkah is a holiday of hope and deliverance. God’s people were being killed and ridiculed, but they fought back. It was a very tragic, awful time. And yet, the people kept close to God. They took the sword of the Lord and they fought for what was right- and the Lord didn’t forsake them. It goes to show that through the evil and darkness, Yahweh is with us. Yahweh is the Light. Yahweh delivered them. There is HOPE in the darkness.
John 8:32 – And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
  Our Deliverer is standing by.
 These days…. oh, do we have joy to find in the Lord! When we look around, let us see our blessings! Let us see the love and warmth of life.  When I look around, what do I see? I see a warm house, with Christmas decorations all around. I see a Christmas tree covered in lights and ornaments. I see my family, gathered around and happy and safe. I see our animals safe outside. I see a sky above that reminds me how close Yahweh is. He is here, and Yeshua has blessed us. That’s what Christmas is.
 My family and I are super excited for Christmas and Hanukkah! 😀 Mamaw and Papaw (Dad’s parents) are coming here today, and they’ll be here for Christmas! It’s going to be awesome. All we’re missing now is Ryan and them. ♥ For Hanukkah this year, we’ll be lighting the menorah, singing, and making food. Since it’s Christmas, we won’t be doing the gifts for the eight days. 😉 I think it’s pretty sweet this year…. Having Hanukkah and Christmas the same time… They both have similar meanings so it is going to be awesome! 😀
This song just lifted me up and made me remember… These days are precious. Yahweh’s Love is GREAT!!
John 3:16 – For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
2 Corinthians 4:6 – For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to [give] the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
Merry Christmas, and YHVH bless!
