Joy to the world! the Lord is come; Let earth receive her King; Let ev'ry heart prepare Him room, And heav'n and nature sing, And heav'n and nature sing, And heav'n, and heav'n and nature sing. Joy to the earth! the Saviour reigns; Let men their songs employ; While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains, Repeat the sounding joy, Repeat the sounding joy, Repeat, repeat the sounding joy. No more let sins and sorrows grow, Nor thorns infest the ground; He comes to make His blessings flow Far as the curse is found, Far as the curse is found, Far as, far as the curse is found. He rules the world with truth and grace, And makes the nations prove The glories of His righteousness, And wonders of His love, And wonders of His love, And wonders, wonders of His love.Do we live in Zechariah 5, or after it? That was Zechariah's vision of what power the Church of Christ would have over all of the things that curse the earth, in that day. Do we live, as in that day?
We are blessed to grow and create policy that bind and loose things from Heaven to Earth. God has given that authority to the Church and we must live with an eye to see God bringing Heaven to us, as we sing at Christmas time. Bring Jesus to us, in our thinking and in our policies in our homes and in our communities and in our government. AmenThe Kingdom of Christ is a blessed possession.Zechariah 5
