Proclaim the Good News from the Mountain Top


I rewote this post as The Shepherd King I think it better follows the sequence of the prophetic names of Jesus. Still, we do need to go and tell the good news to the world. - Earl
You who bring good tidings to Zion, get up to the high mountain. You who bring good tidings to Jerusalem, lift up your voice with strength… be not afraid; say to the cities of Judah. Behold, the Lord God will come with might, and His arm will rule for Him. Isaiah 40:9-10 Amplified

We emphasize the less important things so much that we often forget the actual reason we celebrate Christmas. We must remind ourselves and others of Jesus’ birth, God became a man.

Go to the top of the Mountain and proclaim the good news and publish His peace. Especially at this time of year, don’t be ashamed of Jesus and CHRISTmas. The angels sang it to the shepherds and the shepherds told it to the people they met. Their joy was uncontainable. They had to shout it out. And You?

“Emmanuel, God with us, I want to share the good news. I want to express the joy of You in my life. I want to shout it from the mountain tops.”

Other verses: Isaiah 52:7; 61:1; Nahum 1:15 ; Romans 10:15
