Adeste fidelis…  come on…. you know this one…

“O come, all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant!
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem;
Come and behold him
Born the King of Angels:
O come, let us adore Him, (3×)
Christ the Lord.”

Adeste-fi  (come all you faithful ones )  is totally different from Semper-fi  (which means always faithful)… Adeste is a call to all the faithful ones… all those who believe… to come and behold the King of Kings and Lord of Lords… and adore Him… Jesus… the only One who is   always faithful

This is not just philip playing with words… this is something fixed deep in my heart… very very deep.  This gets more real in me every single day.  This is the real meaning behind the celebration of Christmas on December 25th… regardless what it has become over the last 2000 years.

Ellen and I  beheld Him  today and plan to  behold Him  once again tomorrow… and every day… until that “final separation day”… then we get to meet Him face to face…
