Let Christmas Come

1 And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. 2 She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth. 3 And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads seven diadems. 4 His tail swept down a third of the stars of heaven and cast them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she bore her child he might devour it. ~ Revelation 12:1-4

In CS Lewis’ novel The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, the antagonist (The White Witch) keeps Narnia in a perpetual winter, as winter is always symbolic of trials and tribulations. The other thing she does is keep Christmas from coming because Christmas brings hope. See, if she can keep Narnia in the darkness of winter and never let hope rise within their hearts, she wins.

When Jesus came as a baby 2000 years ago, Satan tried to keep Christmas from coming as well. He used the fear of King Herod in order to try to kill baby Jesus, but his plans didn’t work. Satan can only be successful if he can remove all hope and faith from within us.

This Christmas season, don’t let Satan take away your hope and suppress your faith. Don’t let him manipulate you either, as he did King Herod. This Christmas season, let hope reign through you so much so that you might be a beacon of light for others, pointing them to Christ.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Let Christmas Come.
