Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Saviour is born to you; He is the Messiah, the Lord.” Luke 2:10-11

The birth of Jesus brings an outer end to the FEAR of domination by Satan; the enemy who rules with cruelty and inflicts all forms of affliction and causes all kinds of sorrow through lack, sicknesses, diseases, sudden death and wanton destruction as punishment for our sins.

The coming of Jesus into the world introduces all mankind to a new era of unending peace: a state of rest, calmness and quietness; an absence of strife; tranquillity a state of perfect well-being and perfect harmonious relationships between God and man, man and man, families and nations. This is the cause for joy at Christmas.

Therefore, I pray that the whole essence of Jesus’ birth which includes deliverance from sin, release from Satan’s captivity, rest from every toiling and struggle and complete restoration of your lost inheritance in God be your eternal portion from this day forward. You will continue to have great joy as people rejoice at the harvest and as warriors rejoice when dividing the plunder. Merry, Merry, Mery Christmas!!!

Your brother,

Olufemi Babalola
