Can you imagine the preparations from HEAVEN's side for that first Christmas? Clearly the preparations were in place from before the foundation of the world - however I can imagine some angel meetings going on as assignments were passed out :-) They were thinking palaces and pomp and circumstance - They had to have their thinking aligned! :-)
After a long period of darkness and no prophets - finally: The announcement of John the Baptist!
The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, PREPARE ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the convenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts.
The time drew near for the first angelic visit to Zacharias - it had to be a moment heaven would always remember - the SON of GOD preparing to leave the grandeur of HEAVEN and become human flesh! Before Messiah could come JOHN needed to come to PREPARE the way! No stone left unturned, not even the smallest pebble! In your preparations for the season today may you find time to prepare your heart for HIS coming!
"OH come to my heart, Lord Jesus, there is room in my heart for Thee!"
