Good Morning! Back in November I brought to light about the error that we think about the mansions that Christ is building, and the "place" He is making for us. It met with some criticism because we choose to read some of a scripture and not all of the scripture. So I thought I would ruffle your feathers again and bring truth to the Word of God, even if we don't like it. Sorry, but as a teacher, I am required to rightly discern the Word of God.
In the story of the birth of Christ in Luke 2 when the Angels appeared to the shepherds...they did not sing! Although we have many songs and thoughts about the subject we must rightly discern the scripture.
[Luk 2:8-14 NKJV] 8 Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. 10 Then the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. 11 "For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 "And this [will be] the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger." 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: 14 "Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!"
Did you see it? they said it, not sang it. In fact there are only 2 scriptures where we have the possibly of the angels singing. Job 38:7 [Job 38:7 NKJV] 7 When the morning stars sang together, And all the sons of God shouted for joy? and Revelation 5:8&9 [Rev 5:8-9 NKJV] 8 Now 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. 9 And they sang a new song, saying: "You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God by Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,
Even then the Angels are not specifically mentioned, but at least they are singing! The point here is to slow down and read the scriptures for what it says, not just what you may have heard or read over and miss what God is really speaking to us. Sorry if I burst your bubble, but it is more important to know the truth and get it right than to believe a lie!
