Luke 2:10 “And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.”
The birth of Jesus was described by the angel as a good news. He told them that the news he brought to them is one of good tidings of great joy. Not only for the shepherds but for mankind in general.
In the world, the only news that really sell is the bad one. If it is announced that someone gave birth, buys a car, builds a new house and so on, it doesn’t really move people. But, when you hear news of terror, deaths, epidemic and the like, everybody panics. Those are the news that makes headlines.
Evil news spreads fast because we are in a world of negativity. The devil as the god of this world thrives in evil and bad reports. He knows that when negatives are circulated people lose their joy. He then uses fear as control mechanism to keep people subject to him.
In the midst of such negatives however, Jesus came and his coming changed the narrative. Jesus changed the demonic order to the divine. His coming brought hope, deliverance, breaking of yokes and destruction of fear.
Jesus told us explicitly why he came and I want you to know that the reason for his coming has not changed. Hear him:
Luke 4:18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,”
Luke 4:19 “To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.”
1John 3:8 “…For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.”
Those are the good news of glad tidings that the birth of Jesus brought. Whatever represents the work of devil has been shattered and abolished by the appearance of the Son of God!
Friend, it is no longer business as usual for the devil, Christ has taken over!
