The shepherd's message

Daily Manna from the 'Net - Friday, December 22, 2006

Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, 'Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.' When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, 'Let's go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.' So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. Luke 2:13-18 TNIV Bible

A few days ago, the prophet Silvana, was saying by the Holy Spirit, that the reason that the angels were sent first to the shepherds with the good news of Jesus' birth is because they represent pastors, teachers, those who will spread the message. The shepherds went to see and then they spread the good news, and pastors today should come to know Jesus, and then spread the good news of knowing Him to many others.
