Glory to God in the Highest!   >>

Did you know that YOU are a member of the “HEAVENLY HOST” who, to this day, are still praising God for the greatest miracle in all eternity — when GOD BECAME A MAN? Yes, God in the flesh! But, oh, there is so much more to this miracle! Here is where you and I, in fact all who love Him, are a part. Read it and shout!

“And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.’” Luke 2:13-14

So, who was this “heavenly host” besides the angel? Oh, I’m glad you asked! We know Enoch, Moses and Elijah were there in heaven along with the multitudes who had gone before — but wait — FOR TWO THOUSAND YEARS, that multitude has been growing! WOW — John the Revelator speaks of a great multitude praising God with the “sound of many waters” (Rev. 19:6). Yes, today you and I can join that heavenly choir adding our voice to that glorious symphony!

But, there is so much more to this lesson.

First of all, we see that God GAVE! Yes, the most precious gift all of heaven could give! As we have taught so often, God gave what He needed! He gave His only Son so that —

“He by the grace of God should taste death … [so that He] could bring many sons unto glory”! Heb. 2:9-10

Yes, God’s gift brought the Wise Men with their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh to the Christ child. In a few more lines, I’ll tell you how WE can give a gift — yes, to Jesus Himself!

But, the story goes on — a type of pilgrimage even today.

Well, the next chapter is when Jesus faced death! When King Herod learned of a new king, born in Bethlehem according to the prophet Micah, he was furious! He ordered all the male children two years and younger to be murdered!

Oh, how Satan would love to kill you and me! Anyone who loves Jesus and is a threat to Satan’s dark kingdom is in danger! But, PRAISE GOD, with God there is always a way of escape! Hallelujah! I have counted many near misses from the evil one — I’m sure you, too, have been a victim of his horrible rage! Some precious martyrs have given their lives for the Gospel and have earned the glorious martyr’s crown! But, praise God, we are still here and by God’s grace we are still sending this “GOOD NEWS” to the very ends of the earth! Praise God for the old ship TBN — still riding high on the waves — battle scarred but still giving the old boy trouble! Praise the Lord!

The similarities to Jesus’ journey continue.

The angel warned Joseph to take Mary and the babe to Egypt to escape Herod’s wrath! We also have our own wilderness journeys with sin! Paul the great apostle enumerated his journey: in hunger, stoning, shipwreck, beatings, and fi nally death — but he proclaimed “we are MORE THAN CONQUERORS” (Romans 8:37) through Jesus Christ our Lord! We, too, shall have our victories.

Jesus finally returned to the land of promise and home just as we will also do some sweet day! In the meantime let us vow, just as Jesus did, that we too will, “Bring many sons to glory” with us (Heb. 2:10). Praise God, we are doing it through 12,000 plus stations, cables, satellite, and the Internet! Millions around this world are turning to Jesus Christ as the truth reaches them because of YOU, our precious Partners!

I told you earlier in this letter how we all can give a gift to Jesus — the only gift He desires. He told us Himself:

“Inasmuch as ye have done it to the least of these… ye have done it unto me.” Matt. 25:40

Jan and I love you 35 Christmases long and strong. We promise to join you in giving this gift to our precious Jesus this happy Christmas Season!

Merry Christmas to all and to all a great big GOD BLESS!


“Arise, shine for thy light has come…” (Isa. 60:1). Beautiful Christmas lights at Trinity Music City in Hendersonville, TN help celebrate the birth of Jesus—the “Light of the world”!

Merry Christmas from Paul & Jan and your TBN Family around the world!
