Luke 2:10-11 (KJV)

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.

Revelation 21:4

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pains: for the former things are passed away.

Ideally, everyone loves to have good things and hear good news. Indeed, speaking on the impact of good news, the Holy Spirit says in Proverbs 25:25:

“As cold water to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country.”

I pray that good news will come your way this season in Jesus’ Name Amen

Beloved, I want to clearly inform you today that the Almighty God is the fountain of good news, and He has embedded all good news in the person of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. The bad news of curses, sorrow and limitation came to mankind through the devil’s introduction of sin (Genesis 3:16-24). However, God turned this bad news around when He sent His angels to proclaim the arrival of Good News on earth, When the angle proclaimed the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ and declaring his leadership. (Luke 2: 10-11).

Upon this Good News rests all other news we can describe as good today. Let us consider the character of the good news brought by the angels to mankind. First of all, the angels said “Fear not”. When you consider what fear has caused in the lives of people down through the ages, you will appreciate the good news that man has no reason to live in fear any more. People have lost their minds and done several abominable things as a result of fear. The fear of death has led some to join secret societies and dabble into witchcraft- things which are abominations before the Lord

As a result of the angels’ proclamation by saying \’Fear Not\’ Paul was able to write in 2nd Timothy 1:7 concerning the gift which the Lord hath given to us as thus …

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

Another thing to note from the angels’ message is that the good news brings great joy to all people. In other words, any news that does not bring joy is not of God. Also, any message that claims to be good news must be for all people. This can only come from the God of the entire world. So, the good news of the Son of the living God is not for any single race, tribe or class of people only; rather, it is for all people in all race and from generation to generation.

Now, what is the good news? It is the fact that the Saviour has been born, and He has paid the price of redeeming us from the consequences of the bad news that sin represents. For those who have accepted Him as their personal Lord and Saviour, the eternal punishment meant for the human race has been wiped away by His sacrifice. This is why we have the assurance in today’s 2nd reading of Revelation 21:4. That on the last day, God shall wipe away all tears from our eyes, and we will no longer experience death, sorrow or pain. This is the source of our joy and hope. Anyone who accepts this message of the good news as true and also accepts Jesus Christ, who is the Good News, as Lord and Saviour will partake of this joy and hope.

For those who has received the tidings of great joy will declare as the psalmist declared in psalm 89: 1-2

89:1 I WILL sing of the mercy and loving-kindness of the Lord forever; with my mouth will I make known Your faithfulness from generation to generation.

89:2 For I have said, Mercy and loving-kindness shall be built up forever; Your faithfulness will You establish in the very heavens [unchangeable and perpetual]. (Amplified B).

To experience good news is a thing of joy so as we enter the season of Christmas which is the season of good tidings may Good News be made abundantly available unto you and yours in Jesus name 🙏 Happy Reading! ✍️ Blessing I N Onugha
