christmasrevelations And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended before God from the angel’s hand. Revelation 8:4 (NKJV)

I love this time of year when I’m at the end of my Bible, soaking up the Book of Revelation. As children are anticipating Christmas, I’m reading about and anticipating Christ’s second coming, the return of Jesus.  Though I need the Christmas story in Luke’s gospel and Mary’s blessed response to God’s call, I also yearn to spend my December tea time sipping the book of Revelation.

So, I invite you to join me for My Christmas Revelation TEA.  You could sip the entire CUPP on Christmas Eve as you prepare for your family gathering.  You could sip one part of the CUPP each day between Christmas and New Year’s Day in preparation for a blessed new year.  Or, you might even pray these prayers as a way to greet the new year in January.  However you share your tea time with Jesus, you will be blessed.

Today’s TEA CUPP: Let us all prepare out hearts for coming of our Lord.  Today I give you a few verses for a Revelation TEA CUPP. You may find more verses to underline in your Bible that you enjoy praying, too. Use these verses as conversation starters as you chat with Jesus each day over a CUPP of TEA.

T is for Thanksgiving
We give You thanks, O Lord God Almighty,
The One who is and who was and who is to come,
Because You have taken Your great power and reigned. Revelation 11:17 (NKJV)

E is for Exalting
 You are worthy, O Lord,
To receive glory and honor and power;
For You created all things,
And by Your will they exist and were created. Revelation 4:11 (NKJV)

Great and marvelous are Your works,
Lord God Almighty!
Just and true are Your ways,
O King of the saints!
Who shall not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your name?
For You alone are holy.
For all nations shall come and worship before You,
For Your judgments have been manifested. Revelation 15:3-4 (NKJV)

A is for Admitting
 Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent. Revelation 2:5 (NKJV)

C is for Call
Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown. Revelation 3:11 (NJKV)

And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.  Revelation 22:17 (NKJV)

U is for Understanding
I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name. Revelation 3:8 (NKJV)

P is for Promises
Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen. Revelation 1:7 (NKJV)

For the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. Revelation 7:17 (NKJV)

morning-starAnd I will give him the morning star. Revelation 2:28 (NKJV)

The morning star…I see it almost every morning over the barn behind our house.  I curl up on the sofa by the window, sipping my Jesus tea and reading God’s Word.  Glancing outside I smile at the sky, talking to the Lord.  And there, above the barn, twinkling back at me, is the brightest morning star! Then, soon after, the sky lightens, the day dawns, and I view the mountains beyond Montana fields.

And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.  2 Peter 1:19 (NKJV)

One morning in my usual quiet time spot, I was studying this verse from 2 Peter 1:19 about reading the Bible.  Peter explains God’s Word is a light that shines in a dark place.  How this world needs His light!  We all must keep digging into His Word and shining His light to others.  And someday, Jesus will come and we won’t need the lights in the sky anymore.  For He will be our dawning light and His Morning Star will shine in our hearts.  Though we celebrate now the advent before Christmas, we are always in the season of advent, preparing for Christ’s second coming.

Today’s TEA CUPP:  Of all the presents that could come your way this Christmas, my prayer for you, My TEA CUPP friend, is the gift of His light in your heart.  Sit by a window in the early morning hours, as you read your Bible, and invite Jesus to be the center of your advent season, your Christmas holiday, and your life.

“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.” Revelation 22:16 (NKJV)

aLuke2.1.7“Seven verses that changed history.
Seven verses that changed the world forever.
Seven verses that change us forever,” my pastor preached the Sunday before Christmas. What were those seven verses? Luke 2:1-7, the announcement of Jesus’ birth.

And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This census first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria. So all went to be registered, everyone to his own city. Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife, who was with child. So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. Luke 2:1-7 (NKJV)

Can you imagine history without these verses? No Joseph, no Mary, no census, no birth of our Savior, no hope for mankind. Even the counting of our years (we’re on 2016 now), is based on the birth of Christ. Thank the Lord that Luke 2:1-7 really happened!

I went home with my pastor’s message on my heart, pondering what other verses change history? 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 came to mind.  These three verses describe Jesus’ return to take all believers home to heaven.

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 (NKJV)

Can you picture the headlines after that great day, when all believers are taken to heaven?  Hopefully, none will be here to write the news, for we will be in heaven with Jesus. However, those who don’t believe will be left to discover the Truth.  History will yet again be changed!

Still wondering about significant verses, I considered what one verse changes history and the future for us all. Perhaps that verse is John 3:16.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16 (NKJV)

God loves us so much that He willingly sent His only Son as a baby to our sinful world. That baby grew to be a perfect man, Jesus, who taught us about God, healed the sick, comforted the brokenhearted and forgave the sinners.  Then in accordance with the law which required a spotless lamb to die, Jesus died for my sins, your sins, and the sins of all the world.  But He didn’t stay dead. On the third day, Jesus rose again, conquering death forever.  That is good news!

Today’s TEA CUPP: 7-3-1, so many Bible verses today! My friend, what we do with these verses determines our eternity.  John 3:16 says “whoever believes in Him” will have everlasting life.  This is my prayer for you…believe in the the Lord Jesus, the Savior of your soul.  He is coming again to take all believers to heaven.  Instead of coming as a baby in a manger, He will come mightily.  History will be changed forever in the blink of an eye.

In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 1 Corinthians 15:52 (NKJV)

 Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.  Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written:

KING OF KINGS AND
LORD OF LORDS.
 
Revelation 19:11-16 (NKJV)

aPeanutsThe angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!” Luke 1:28 (NKJV)

This past Christmas marked the 50th anniversary of the beloved Christmas television special, A Charlie Brown Christmas. I am among those who love the Peanuts gang and still sit down with my family every Christmas holiday to watch their shows, including Linus’ famous oratory from the book of Luke.

We have the show on DVD, along with another Peanuts Christmas show, It’s Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown. This sequel, though not as famous, has a line from Marcie that should be repeated to us all.

The scene is a classroom. Peppermint Patty, sitting in front, turns to tell Marcie that she will ask the teacher to let her be Mary in the Christmas program. Marcie replies that the teacher already offered her the part yesterday. But Peppermint Patty is not listening. She continues to talk about the story and how the angel Gabriel will come to visit her.

Marcie replies, “Why would the angel Gabriel talk to you? You never listen!”

You can watch the scene at about 7 min, 17 seconds into this clip from youtube…

Marcie’s words may strike a chord with us all.  “Why would the angel Gabriel talk to you? You never listen!”  Are we listening when God tells us to do something? To talk to the stranger, to visit a friend, to lend a hand?  I know I am guilty of closing my ears so many times.  But we can ask Jesus for His forgiveness and another chance.  And who knows, if we are listening, perhaps an angel will visit us someday!

Today’s TEA CUPP:  As you read your Bible and dig into God’s Word today, be sensitive to the Holy Spirit and verses Jesus may have for you. Underline those verses and pray about what God is calling you to do next.  Then reply as Mary did

 “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.”  Luke 1:38 (NKJV)

My Heart Inn

coffee_mugAnd she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. Luke 2:7  (NKJV)

“NO ROOM in the INN” the sign proclaims on the make-shift inn created by the Sunday schoolers for their Christmas pageant.  The beautiful story of our Savior’s birth will soon be portrayed by the youngest members of our church family.  As the students and teachers make the final preparations for this year’s production, my mind contemplates the words on the sign — “NO ROOM in the INN.”

The sign is taken right from the book of Luke, And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. Why do these words from the Christmas story strike such a chord with me?  Is it because God allowed me to share in Mary’s experience?  Is it because He showed me “NO ROOM in the INN?”

Not once, not twice, but three times God let me be pregnant and then moved us to a new place! In each instance, during a span of 18 years, a home, a job, and our future were uncertain.  Oh, how I wrestled with God each time!  And just as He provided a stable for Mary and baby Jesus, God provided homes for us, from a rustic cabin in the mountains to a spacious home near town. But best of all, He gave us the babies.

The Sunday schoolers suspend my thoughts for the moment,  now parading onto the stage  in their costumes.  Instead of the usual bathrobes and shepherds’ staffs, they are dressed in modern outfits.  One holds a sign that reads, “Super 8, No Vacancy.”  Another says, “Holiday Inn Express, No Vacancy.” Another proclaims, “Comfort Inn, No Vacancy.”  I look down the line at all the children, each with another hotel sign, all claiming, “No Vacancy.”

The last little girl comes in a red velvet dress.  She has a different sign.  It reads, “My Heart Inn.”

“Oh, what can this be?” I wonder.  We sing “Oh, Little Town of Bethlehem” before the children commence with the play.

Mary and Joseph wander onto the modern Bethlehem stage, looking for a place to stay.  First the Super 8 manager explains how he has no vacancy because of a cattlemen’s convention. He turns his sign so we can read, “No Vacancy, Welcome Cattlemen!”  Next the Holiday Inn Express manager tells about the craft show people filling her motel. She turns her sign to read, “No Vacancy, Welcome Craft Fair!”  The Comfort Inn manager is excited about the basketball tournaments in town and turns his sign to read, “No Vacancy, Welcome Basketball Players!”  And on down the line it goes, with each motel manager giving reasons for no vacancy.

Finally we come to the little girl in the red velvet dress.  This sweet little girl explains why her “My Heart Inn” has no vacancy.  She turns her sign so we can read, “No Vacancy.  Welcome American Girl dolls, video games, cell phones, ballet, new clothes, earrings…”

The congregation lets out a gasp.  We are all so shocked, just sure the little girl was the one to welcome baby Jesus.  We can’t believe it!  How is it possible?!  Such a sweet little girl with no room for Jesus.  It causes us to think, “Are we making room in our hearts for Jesus? Is there room in ‘My Heart Inn?'”

And so Mary and Joseph continue outside into the cold.  We see them standing outside the church window, shivering in the snow. There is an uncomfortable pause as we await whatever is next.

The little girl in the red velvet dress stands trembling in front of the congregation.  Tears form in her eyes because she also sees Mary and Joseph outside.  A sob escapes her as she cries, “Yes, baby Jesus, Yes!  I do have room in my heart for You!”

The little girl tears up her  “No Vacancy” sign and throws it into a nearby manger, sobbing uncontrollably on the alter steps.  Tears spring from all eyes as we watch the little girl helplessly, not sure if we should go and comfort her. From out of the shadows appears an angel who reaches down and touches her, giving her a new sign.

Looking surprised, the girl in the red velvet dress stops crying to read, “My Heart Inn. Welcome Jesus.”  She smiles, wiping away her tears, delighted with her new sign.

The pastor stops the production to point us to our church bulletins.  Inside we find hearts like the “My Heart Inn – No Vacancy” sign.   Pastor asks us what is filling our hearts, creating no room for Jesus?  Is it money, things, toys, activities, computers, cars?  He asks us to write it on the No Vacancy heart.

I consider my heart and the Christmas story.  I didn’t really share in Mary’s ordeal.  I don’t know what it is like to have a baby in a stable.  I haven’t really shared in Jesus’ sufferings, from His humble birth to His sacrificial death.  I ponder what to write on my heart, and then I know.  I write down all my worries that keep me from trusting Jesus. I write down my busy projects I think I have to do for Him, when all He really wants is my heart.

Pastor invites us to come forward and leave our  torn hearts in the manger, just like the little girl.  There is not a dry eye as we file to the front of the sanctuary. Wise men and shepherds appear on the scene. They give each person who places a “No vacancy” heart in the manger a new heart that reads, “My Heart Inn.  Welcome Jesus.”

The children’s choir softly sings, “Jesus is knocking at the door of my heart.” Then the congregation sings “The First Noel” and other Christmas hymns until the manger is overflowing with our torn hearts, and everyone in the congregation holds a new one.  As the piano music ends, the girl in the red velvet dress runs to open the door for Mary and Joseph.  The couple walks in holding baby Jesus, Who Mary carefully places in His manger bed (we wonder if He was born in the snow, but we don’t ask).

Pastor leads us in a prayer, asking God to help us truly give up these things that have cluttered our hearts, and for Jesus to fill our hearts instead.  The prayer ends and we look up to see…

The little girl in the red velvet dress, standing behind the manger.  She begins to sing, “Joy to the World, the Lord is come.  Let earth receive her King.  Let every heart.  Prepare Him room…” The children’s choir and the congregation all join her in singing this beautiful hymn.

Suddenly, with great joy, it is every holiday all mixed in one.  There are red heart balloons with John 3:16 falling from the ceiling like Valentine’s Day.  The Sunday School teachers bring in a cake for baby Jesus and we all sing “Happy Birthday to You!”  The cross on the alter reminds us of Easter and Jesus’ reason for being born – to die. And outside the head elder sets off fireworks like the Fourth of July to celebrate our freedom from sin.

We gather our children in our arms and sing “We wish you a Merry Christmas” as we all share a piece of Jesus’ cake.  And you know, I think it really will be a Merry Christmas this year. For this is the year Jesus found room at My Heart Inn.

Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. Revelation 3:20  (NKJV)

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16 (NKJV)

santa10The entirety of Your word is truth,
And every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever. Psalm 119:160 (NKJV)

My 4-year old son Joel has never sat on Santa’s lap, and it’s looking like he never will.  Oh, he’s had opportunity.  Every year his big brother Kevin plays piano at the American Bank Christmas open house. And every year following the recital, Santa comes out with a jolly, “Ho, ho, ho.”

Joel’s first and second years at the recital, he was asleep, making an enjoyable concert for his parents.  The next few years Joel was awake, but wanted nothing to do with that big, loud fellow in the red suit.

This year, Joel was content to stand near the punch table and watch the other children visiting with Santa.  Joel tipped his head to me and queried, “Is this make-believe?”  Now where did he get an idea like that?!

Our dear neighbor standing nearby overheard the conversation. She assured Joel that Santa has many helpers because he has to go all over the world.  But Joel still wasn’t convinced he needed to sit on this helper’s lap. Just a few hours later we were watching the beautiful lighted Christmas parade on main street, and guess who was on almost every float…Santa!  No wonder Joel was skeptical!

I’m amazed that Joel could go from being scared to skepticism of Santa with no in-between years. Yet I am not too sad, for Jesus is the One in Whom I want Joel to believe. But it makes me wonder if some of us are the same way with God.  Do we move from being scared of our Creator to being skeptical that He even exists?

Today I assure you that our Triune God most certainly exists!  He is God the Father, Creator of the Universe. He is Jesus Christ the Son, Savior of our souls whose birth we celebrate at Christmas.  He is the Holy Spirit who dwells in all who believe.  You can read His true story in the Bible, from Creation to Jesus sacrificial death and resurrection, to His eminent return.  It is all true.

Yes, Virginia,  there really is Jesus!

Today’s TEA CUPP: My dear friend, regarding our Lord and Savior Jesus, I don’t want you to be scared or skeptical, only have faith and trust.  As my prayer has been for our son Joel since before he was born,  I pray that you will love and follow Jesus. Climb up in Jesus’ lap today and share your heart.

 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:32 (NKJV)

With Thanksgiving here, it is a good time to re-run this favorite family activity.  It keeps us thankful all the way to Christmas…

Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good!
For His mercy
endures forever.
Oh, give thanks to the God of gods!
For His mercy
endures forever.
Oh, give thanks to the Lord of lords!
For His mercy
endures forever. Psalm 136:1-3  (NKJV)

Here is a project you can do with your family to carry you from Thanksgiving to Christmas.  First, count the days from Thanksgiving to Christmas on your calendar. This year it is 29 days.  Next, cut out 29 strips of colored paper, approximately 1 inch by 6 inches.  Grab your Bible, the paper strips, some markers, and a stapler, and gather the family around your kitchen table.

  • Read a Psalm of Thanksgiving such as Psalm 136.
  • Talk about things for which you are thankful.
  • Divide the strips of paper between all family members.
  • Everyone can write things they are thankful for on each strip with the markers.
  • When everyone is finished, mix up the paper strips.  Curl one strip into a circle and staple it.  Run another strip through the first circle and staple it to itself.  Continue stapling strips until you have a long chain of circles.
  • Hold the chain around the table and let family members read the items together as you thank Jesus.
  • Hang the chain on a nail in the kitchen so you can see how many days until Christmas.
  • Each morning at breakfast, let one person tear off the bottom link of the chain. Say a prayer of THANKS again for whatever is listed on that slip of paper.
  • Each day the chain will get shorter until it’s Christmas!

Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas to your family!

In Christ’s Love, Jennifer Grace

Filling the BowlsNow when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.  Revelations 5:8  (NKJV)

Filling the bowls, that’s what I’ve been doing lately.  During the holidays there are always bowls to fill…treat bowls on the counter, soup bowls on the table, baskets of bows for gift wrapping… I thank the Lord for helping me fill these bowls!

Before Christmas, I am almost to the end of my Bible, since I read through the Bible each year.  This puts me in Revelations.  One morning in December, I was reading Revelations 5…and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints...and God showed me how I am filling bowls with my prayers!

Every prayer I say…in the morning when I rise, at meal times with our family, when I read my emails and pray for friends and family, in the evening when I tuck our kids into bed, at night when I lie awake…every prayer is filling one of the golden bowls.  These bowls are brought before the Lamb as a pleasing offering to Him.  Wow!

One day as our family said grace, I contemplated this.  The warmth from my soup bowl (or was it my oatmeal?) reached up and touched my cheeks.  I asked the Lord to let our prayers rise up to Him from golden bowls, touching Him, also.

Today’s TEA CUPP:  My dear prayer friend, your prayers are filling bowls, too!  This day, this very day, sit down with Jesus for TEA and pour out your heart to Him.  May our TEA CUPPS be incense before the Lord!

Let my prayer be set before You as incense,
The lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.  Psalm 141:1  (NKJV)
