The 12 Gifts of Christmas
12 days featuring 12 gifts we receive becauseof Jesus.
Gift #11: The GIFT of Praise!
In Jesus Christ, He promises to give you “the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness”.
Heaviness here is akin to oppression, depression, even possession by unwelcome evil forces, earthly (humans) and spiritual (demons).
Possession is a neutral word. If you are possessed by demons, you’re having more than just a bad day. You need One who is stronger than those possessing you to kick these thugs OUT! That Stronger Man would be Jesus Christ.
But when we surrender to King Jesus, we become His prized possession, which is an awesome honor and idyllic state of being.
But remember, whereas evil people and foul demons desire to possess to manipulate, control, and torment, God calls His people (that’s you and I) His prized possession to set us free, to comfort and heal us. And as His possession, instead of taking from us, He actually gives us more!
What would any rational being do under these conditions? They would PRAISE Him for His everlasting kindness and mercy. They would PRAISE Him for removing the lead-weighted death-drenched spirit of heaviness.
Sound too good to be true? That’s because it’s a limited time offer. You must choose Jesus in this lifetime to escape the punishment for sin and power of Satan and death.
You too can PRAISE Jesus for delivering you from the spirit of heaviness!
With much love in Christ,
