The Eve of Something Wonderful

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Wholetonians,
By the time you read this, people around the world will be gathering together, some traveling long distances, to celebrate the most important birth in history!
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6
Who could have imagined that the birth of one child would change everything…the past, the present, and the future? Perfection personified, comes to Earth, and 33 years later gives mankind the greatest gift, his life, in exchange for our salvation.
“Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus:
Who, existing in the form of God,
did not consider equality with God
something to be grasped,
but emptied Himself,
taking the form of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
He humbled Himself
and became obedient to death—
even death on a cross.
Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place
and gave Him the name above all names,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.”
And all of this took place in a small town in Israel called Bethlehem (in Hebrew it means “house of bread”). And since there was no room in the inn, Jesus, the Son of God, was born in a stable. And instead of a crib, the baby Jesus was placed in a manger (an animal feeding trough).
Such humble beginnings for the King of Kings. I have been to the actual place where all of this took place! And I will be taking 42 Wholetonians to the same spot… on a Nine Day Holy Land Trip that will include live Wholetones concerts, one of them on a night cruise on a boat on the Sea of Galilee where Jesus calmed the wind and the waves with a word.
You will see unforgettable things on this one-of-a-kind adventure. Do you want to go with me? The trip is June 7th-15th 2020. Here is the link to see the trip information and sign up to join us: www.Wholetones.com/holyland
So dear ones, on this Eve of Something Wonderful, I want to thank you for loving me and my music, your love, prayers, and outspoken support of Wholetones…keeps me going. I couldn’t possibly do what I do without you.
I have a feeling that 2020 will be one epic year. Although 2019 was a difficult one, you helped me more than you know. I am sorry that I couldn’t get Wholetones Christmas Volume 2 finished in 2019…however, I will have it recorded for 2020 for sure!
Praying that all of you are fully embraced by The Spirit of Christmas. Talk to you next year…
