• VIDEO: 8 MINUTES THE ANGEl WHO HAD THE X FACTOR !

MESSAGE: LUKE 2: 13-14. ‘GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHEST AND PEACE ON EARTH WITH WHOM GOD IS PLEASED.’

HAVE YOU EVER WATCHED THE X FACTOR? IT’S A TALENT SHOW FOR ALL THOSE ASPIRING POP SINGERS ALTHOUGH I WOULD USE THE WORD TALENT ADVISEDLY. WHAT DOES X FACTOR MEAN, IT’S THAT LITTLE BIT EXTRA SOMETHING WHICH MAKES THAT PERSON STAR QUALITY. SOME PEOPLE HAVE IT AND SOME DON’T, BUT IT PROVIDES A LOT OF ENTERTAINMENT ALONG THE WAY ESPECIALLY DURING THE AUDITIONS.

FOR SOME CAN BE SIMPLE GOOD ENTERTAINMENT A GOOD LAUGH PLENTY OF ENTHUSASIAM AND PLENTY OF SINGING – BUT SOMEHOW LACKING THE X FACTOR THAT START QUALITY. SO WHAT IS THE CHRISTMAS X FACTOR? THIS COMPANY OF ANGELS HAVE THE X FACTOR LET’S LOOK AT THEIR LYRICS OF THAT VERY FIRST NO 1.

THE FIRST LINE OF THE HIT SAYS, ‘GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHEST’ HERE WE HAVE THEM GIVING HIGHEST EXPRESSION OF RESPECT, ADMIRATION AND HONOUR TO GOD.

GLORY ALONE IS GIVEN TO GOD BECAUSE CHRISTMAS IS ONE OF THOSE AWESOME MOMENTS WHEN GOD ACTED ON OUR BEHALF HE SENT HIS SON INTO THIS WORLD, THE BIRTH OF JESUS WAS A GLORIOUS ACT OF GOD. THE BIRTH OF JESUS SHOWS US WHAT GOD IS LIKE: HE’S A GOD WHO IS ON OUR SIDE, WHO WANTS TO UNDERSTAND US HE’S NOT DISTANT BUT VERY CLOSE TO EACH ONE OF US. THE ANGELS GAVE GLORY TO GOD BECAUSE GOD CAME AMONGST. THE APOSTLE JOHN SHOUTED OUT.......

THE 2ND LINE SAYS ‘PEACE ON EARTH.’ MANY CHRISTMAS CARDS WISH PEOPLE PEACE AND FEATURE THE SYMBOL OF A DOVE CARRYING AN OLIVE BRANCH. BUT WHAT ARE WE WISHING PEOPLE PEACE FROM? CONFLICT OR A QUIETER WEEK THAN NORMAL. A LOT OF PEOPLE CRAVE PEACE ESPECIALLY AT CHRISTMAS. MANY LIVE IN WAR ZONES SOME LIVE IN HOMES WHICH ARE WAR ZONES. OTHERS APPEAR TO BE AT PEACE YET INTERNALLY ARE RESTLESS SOULS WITH NO PEACE WITHIN.

ACTUALLY THE ANGELS ARE SINGING ‘PEACE ON EARTH’ TO THOSE WITH WHOM GOD IS PLEASED’ SEE GOD. IT’S EASY ENOUGH TO LOOK AT THE WORLD AND SAY IT NEEDS PEACE BUT IT’S A LOT HARDER TO LOOK AT OURSELVES AND ASK AM I AT PEACE WITH GOD? IS GOD PLEASED WITH YOUR LIFE? OR DO I FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE AT THE MERE MENTION OF HIS NAME? HUNDREDS OF YEARS BEFORE THE PROPHET ISAIAH CALLED OUT......

• MEMBER 2 ISAIAH 9:6 -7 READ ALOUD

FOR MANY THIS IS THE MISSING X FACTOR IN THEIR LIVES AT CHRISTMAS TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE ON GOOD TERMS WITH YOUR MAKER. THIS IS WHAT THE ANGELS X FACTOR SONG IS ALL ABOUT TO HELP US KNOW GOD TO GET THAT MISSING X FACTOR GOD INTO OUR LIVES. JESUS IS THE ONE WHO BRINGS PEACE INTO OUR LIVES THROUGH HIS DEATH AND RESURRECTION HE BREAKS DOWN ALL THE BARRIERS PREVENTING US FROM KNOWING PEACE WITH GOD AND THE ANGELS SONG IS THE X FACTOR CHRISTMAS HIT WHICH POINTS US IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.
