Tension in the Church of The Nativity (Bethlehem) In All Its Glory.

The Church of the Nativity (Arabic: كنيسة المهد‎) in Bethlehem is one of the oldest continuously operating churches in the world. The structure is built over the cave that tradition marks as the birthplace of Jesus of Nazareth, and it is considered sacred by followers of both Christianity and Islam (see Jesus in Islam). The antiquity of this tradition is attested by the Christian apologist Justin Martyr (c. 100 – 165), who noted in his Dialogue with Trypho that the Holy Family had taken refuge in a cave outside of town: Joseph took up his quarters in a certain cave near the village; and while they were there Mary brought forth the Christ and placed Him in a manger, and here the Magi who came from Arabia found Him.(chapter LXXVIII). Origen of Alexandria (185 AD–ca. 254) wrote: In Bethlehem the cave is pointed out where He was born, and the manger in the cave where He was wrapped in swaddling clothes. And the rumor is in those places, and among foreigners of the Faith, that indeed Jesus was born in this cave who is worshipped and reverenced by the Christians. (Contra Celsum, book I, chapter LI).

Under the supervision of Bishop Makarios of Jerusalem, the construction started in 327 and was completed in 333. That structure was burnt down in the Samaritan Revolt of 529. The current basilica was rebuilt in its present form

Gloria in Excelsis Deo – Glory to God in the Highest – Trinity Episcopal Church Choir – Fredonia, NY

When a church choir sings, the choir doesn’t simply sing, the choir prays. “Gloria in Excelsis Deo” (Latin for “Glory to God in the Highest”) is the hymn of Great Praise to God used in the Catholic Mass and Divine Services of the Anglican and Episcopal Church and many other Christian churches. The text of the song brings to mind the words said by the angels as part of the announcement of the birth of Jesus to the shepherds in the field. Luke 2:14.

Christmas Glory From Westminster with Andrea Bocelli and Charlotte Church [VHS]

Christmas Glory From Westminster with Andrea Bocelli and Charlotte Church [VHS]

Talented soloists from Andrea Bocelli to Charlotte Church, and the enchanting choir of Westminster Abbey have come together to provide an evening of beautiful music within the walls of Westminster Abbey. Join HRH the Duke of Edinburgh as he introduces Christmas Glory from Westminster touching upon the historical features of the Abbey and memories of his own wedding there. Throughout the program, guests perform Christmas music and recite poetry from the historic Poets Corner in Westminster Abbey.

Starring Andrea Bocelli, Charlotte Church, Bryn Terfel, Dame Joan Plowright, Greta Scacchi and Trevor MacDonald.

It’s a marketer’s dream to have two PBS superstars, Andrea Bocelli and Charlotte Church, singing in Christmas Glory from Westminster. Bocelli and Church (who don’t sing together here) are among a handful of performers in this 1999 service from London’s Westminster Abbey, including actresses Greta Scacchi and Joan Plowright and Welsh baritone Bryn Terfel.

Following an introduction to the abbey by HRH the Duke of Edinburgh (his wedding took place there), the first part of the hourlong service tells the Christmas story, alternating poetry and Bible readings with musical selections from the choir and soloists, including Messiah‘s “For unto us a child is born” and “But who may abide the day of his coming” by Terfel. Bocelli contributes two Schubert selections, “Mille Cherubino in Coro” and the beloved “Ave Maria,” as well as “Sancta Maria,” a version of Mascagni’s famous melody from Cavalleria Rusticana. Church performs Stephen Adams’s “The Holy City” (from her second CD) and shares “Silent Night” with Terfel. The program isn’t all solemnity, however. Actor Richard Griffiths offers a spirited reading from A Christmas Carol near the abbey’s famous Poets’ Corner, where Dickens is buried. A blessing from the Dean of Westminster closes the distinguished evening. –David Horiuchi

Christ In You The Hope Of Glory!

Christ In You The Hope Of Glory!

Christ In You The Hope Of Glory!

Sharing the full mystery of the cross…

When you look at Colossians 1:27 (which includes the words “Christ in you the hope of glory”) in light of the full gospel of the Kingdom (and not just 2/3’s of the gospel currently taught in the modern church), what do you find?

Well, like all of Scripture, you’ll find this verse beginning to reveal its full meaning.

For instance, when the Apostle Paul writes:

“Christ in you the hope of glory!”

He does so with a clear mind about the middle third of the gospel message that is no longer preached in today’s churches.

You ask, how do we know this?

Simple. If Christ had not initiated His “New Creation” between the cross and the resurrection, your body would be in no state to receive the inner dwelling of Christ. That’s right, there would be no Christ in you the hope of glory!

Indeed, for the Apostle Paul to have written these words “Christ in you the hope of Glory” your body must have been changed!

And it was! Even along with all of creation!

In reality, your body became, through the work of Christ as shared in the middle third of the gospel message, a new creation in Christ, through Christ, by Christ.

Now this new creation which you become in, through, and by Christ, is a part of the new heaven and new earth implemented by our Lord.

A new creation of both heaven and earth that must needs be accomplished before you are a fit vessel to receive the inner dwelling of Christ. Remember, there is no Christ in you the hope of glory before the cross!

(This is all foundational teaching within the middle third of the gospel of the Kingdom, that portion no longer being preached in today’s churches!)

Christ In You The Hope Of Glory!

So, consider again Paul’s writing of the words “Christ in you the hope of Glory!” but now in the context of the new creation implemented by Christ that Good Friday directly after the cross and prior to the resurrection…

Can you see the implications of “Christ in you the hope of glory”?

Can you see the context for the foundation of your becoming a fit vessel to receive the inner dwelling of the Christ?

Friend, this is your true calling… to see the full blessings of Christ as brought to you through the glorious work of Christ… even the Victory He won in the depths of Hell that Good Friday some 2000 years ago.

I can make you this promise: As you learn more of this middle third of the good news of Christ, all the Bible will begin to open up to you in powerful ways that you never before imagined possible, even as with this verse “Christ in you the hope of glory!”

And the practical power of your salvation will grow by leaps and bounds as you see more and more the practical power of Christ in you the hope of glory!

Yes, the God of all good things will cause His power to soar in you to the heights of heaven even during your sojourn here on God’s green earth.

To learn more of this great truth (Christ in you the hope of glory) and what it means to you in your daily walk with the Lord, contact us today.

In the meantime, may our Lord and God, Jesus Christ, the one who first and for all mankind did complete the circuit of the underworld, shine His light upon you.

In this love of Christ,

Pastor Paul 🙂
