Getting To Know God
His Name Is...
The LORD Our Peace - The Prince Of Peace - The Just Judge - The Praise Of God - The Perfection Of God
The Birth Of Peace
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!"
When Jesus was born as God in flesh, heaven rejoiced at the fulfillment of the Father’s promise to provide peace through His Messiah. The birth of Jesus caused the angels of heaven to celebrate the incarnation of God’s perfection. Though Jesus was fully flesh and blood, He was fully God, all at once. If we’re to trust that God Himself is the means by which we have peace with Him, Jesus MUST be God! Who but God could bring peace by paying the full debt of sin, taking the judgment of sin upon Himself, to close the gap that separates us from Him? God’s peace not only provokes the praise of His people, but all of heaven’s angels as well!
