GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU!!!
What is the essence of Christmas?
Christmas can be a very elevated time of activity in each person’s life. There are lights to be strung on the inside and perhaps the outside, possibly a Christmas tree to put up, presents to get ready to give to someone else Christmas cookies or candy to make.
But looking at the spiritual realm Christmas is all about giving out of LOVE.
That is the first essence of Christmas.
1 John 4:8 says it all, “…God is love.”
Can you imagine God Himself leaving the portals of heaven as awesome as that is and coming down to earth in the form of Baby Jesus? Then Jesus being born in a stable where it probably smelled very bad and was lying in a trough for food that cattle eat, called a manger as his Mother Mary and his, as it were step father Joseph could not even find a decent place for the child Jesus to lay?
Please look with me at 1 John 4:10. “Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be the propitiation (translates to means of APPEASING) for our sins.”
God loves man so much that He sent His Son Jesus Christ to be a means of atonement or appeasing to REMOVE (or REMISSION) of our sins by our acceptance of Him.
Keeping in mind that while you and I were yet sinners, had no plan to accept the Lord as our Savior, He came into this world to give man an opportunity to accept Him as our Savior and live forever with Him.
That is what we call unconditional love. Only God is able to do this for us, it is beyond human ability to continually walk in this higher type of love.
God’s whole giving of His Son Jesus Christ to be sent to earth at Christmas Season is about giving the best gift God had and that was to send His Son to earth to be born of a virgin to be the redeemer of mankind.
Jesus Christ became and is the ultimate gift that a person could ever possess.
The Gospel of Mark sums up this gift sent from heaven at Christmas time to the whole world. Mark 8:36
There is no gift that you could ever receive that could match the gift that the Baby Jesus represented as He lay in that manger in Bethlehem approximately 2,000 years ago.
That gift is so important that if you do not receive Jesus Christ you will be eternally lost and will never have heaven as your home and the alternative is hell.
The gift of Jesus Christ as we acknowledge Him this Christmas is without price and is invaluable.
Then the 2nd essence of Christmas is Joy.
As you look into the Christmas story in Luke 2:1-20 you will see that an angel of the Lord came to the shepherds who were very lowly people.
Notice that the angel of the Lord did not come to the affluent at that first Christmas morning but instead to the meek of the earth, to shepherds.
Luke 2:10 records this: “And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for behold I bring you good tidings of GREAT JOY, which shall be to all people.”
Are you part of all people?
Well of course you are.
The angel of the Lord said he came to bring GREAT JOY to ALL people.
When you receive Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord and have daily fellowship with Him in reading His Word and prayer and serving Him, no matter what life brings your way you will have joy bubbling up on the inside of you.
Can you tell me ANYTHING in this world that can bring you GREAT JOY no matter what you are going through?
Let me answer that for you, there is not anything in this world that can bring you joy even when things are going good let alone when things are going bad.
You may be able to have a time of happiness but joy far surpasses happiness. Happiness is subject to circumstances but only God can give you joy and it bubbles in your spirit like an artesian well.
Joy is like a heavenly drink of the best water you have ever tasted and it is effervescent. It literally bubbles out of you and people can see it in you.
Praise the Living God, I have preached myself happy right here behind this computer. Hallelujah to the King, Jesus Christ.
I give Him Praise and Worship Him. He is my Savior and Lord at this wonderful time of the year.
Then the 3rd and final essence of Christmas that I want to share with you at this holy time is PEACE.
Let’s now look back at the Christmas story in Luke 2:13-14 “And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth PEACE, good will towards men.”
Think of that?
Did you know that Jesus birth was so you could have peace on earth and that Jesus came to bring good will to you?
We all know that we live in a fallen world, unfortunately there is confusion and sin all around but right in the midst of this mess of a world you live in you can have peace. The peace of God through Jesus Christ of which we celebrate His coming to the earth at this very season.
Like joy peace from God is something that no one on earth can give you.
Jesus Christ is called the PRINCE OF PEACE.
Isaiah a great prophet of God received a revelation from God about Jesus Christ and what His very nature would be and wrote about it in the Book of Isaiah approximately 700 years before Christ.
Here is what Isaiah said under the anointing of the Holy Spirt about Jesus Christ:
“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. Of the increase of His government and PEACE there shall be no end… Isaiah 9:6-7
I can attest to this peace that only comes through our Lord Jesus Christ.
As you celebrate this Christmas season remember the 3 qualities that are the very essence of Christmas, LOVE, JOY AND PEACE.
Give Jesus Christ praise and glory for His coming to this earth for you and all the presents He has given you that are much greater than gold, frankincense and myrrh.
He has given you invaluable gifts that are without price, above all, your salvation.
EVENTS HAPPENING IN OUR MINISTRY: I want to give you an update on the outreach that we are doing at Conrad Freiholtz Ministries:
On Wednesday October 19, 2016 I had a man over to our house to help me do some yard work. While I was working in the yard with him the Spirit of the Lord spoke to me to share the Lord with him and ask him if he wanted to ask Jesus in his life and be born again.
Well there came a time that day that I could talk to him and I led him to the Lord. I was so excited afterwards that joy was all over me. The man I led to the Lord had tears in his eyes and kept thanking me for praying with him to receive the Lord. I told him don’t thank me, thank the Lord.
The reason why I share these salvation events with you is not to lift myself up, God is the one that is something, and I am just doing my reasonable service to the Lord and fulfilling the Great Commission, Matthew 28:18-20.
I want to inspire you to take every opportunity that you have to lead someone to Jesus Christ it will give you more joy that you could believe. It is one of the most satisfying things you could ever do.
On Saturday September 17, 2016 Nita and I had gone to a mall and met with a Christian friend that we often share the things of the Lord with. All 3 of us had been sharing for a while when a man came up to our friend and we found out he knew our Christian friend so now all 4 of us were talking together.
My Christian friend introduced me as a minister friend of his to this man whose name is Joe.
Needless to say Joe started asking me all kinds of Bible questions for some time. The Spirit of God talked to my spirit and told me that I needed to lead this man to the Lord. Finally I looked at Joe and told him you have asked me many questions now let me ask you a question.
I asked Joe if he had even been born again and he hesitated as he then told me he belonged to a certain religion. I advised Him that Jesus is not coming back for any religion but instead born again believers. John 3:3
Nita talked to him and then he told Nita he wanted for me to pray with him to ask Jesus in his heart and be born again which Joe did and WE WERE THRILLED.
After we led Joe to the Lord he kept thanking us and I told him don’t thank us thank Jesus Christ for coming in your heart. Then we found out that this man was 91 years old.
The older a person is the harder it can be for them to come to Jesus Christ which is a fact. So we know that the Precious Holy Spirit moved upon his heart.
Nita and I lead people to Jesus Christ as we minister in the church but that is not enough. We pray that God will lead people to us outside of church so we can lead them to the Lord and He absolutely sends them to us.
The Great Commission burns in Nita and myself that tells us to lead people to Jesus Christ always. Please see Matthew 28:19-20.
Nita and I get no greater joy than leading people to Jesus Christ in the church and out in the world where the sinners are on the highways and byways of life. That is our reasonable service as it is to all of us.
I want to encourage you ministers, the 5 fold ministry gifts, Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher to lead people to Jesus Christ in your church, have altar calls after every service and also as you go out into the world every day.
Of course that goes for everyone whether you are a minster or not, we are all called to lead people to Jesus Christ to fulfill the Great Commission. Amen? We are all called to be ambassadors for Christ. Please see these scriptures 2 Corinthians 5:18-20
Then I wanted to let you know that 3 other ministries contacted Nita and I on the world web during the week of 9/12 -9/16/2016 consisting of 2 ministries from Africa and 1 from Myanmar formerly known as Burma as of 9-19-2016. That makes 16 ministries that have contacted us from different parts of the world. They have found our website and are receiving our ministry of the Word of God.
So we thank the Lord once again for spreading the ministry of His Word to bless people around the world
Nita and I are humbled by all of this and just want to be used of the Lord to spread His Word and REVIVAL around the world.
We are also grateful for the individuals from around the world that have contacted Nita and me through our website address and they have asked for prayer and questions and guidance in their lives. Nita and I pray over every prayer request we receive and count it a privilege to do so.
So we also encourage you individuals to contact us with your prayer requests and any questions you might have.
Praise you Lord we give Him all the honor and glory.
We are involved in our ministry on an international level and also will be continuing to minister at churches as we are led to go to these churches as well as going to churches in the United States.
On Tuesday October 27, 2015 the Spirit of God gave me a dream about a very large amount of people that I was ministering to. It seemed they were from different parts of the world. As I ministered to them I told them that WORLD WIDE REVIVAL was coming and that it would touch everyone on the face of the earth.
Every time I would say something to this huge crowd of people there would come a shout of excitement from them. But as I looked over to my right there was a man who I got eye contact with and I said this to him as we looked at each other. I told that man, whoever he was, that it was even going to affect him even though he would try to resist it.
And then I woke up.
Nita and I knew then and now that it was a dream from the Spirit of God and that He had called Nita and me to be part of this END TIME WORLD WIDE REVIVAL.
Since then I have ministered on revival several times in meetings and conversations I have had with other churches around the world.
JESUS SAID, “SAY NOT YE, THERE ARE FOUR MONTHS, AND THEM COMETH HARVEST? BEHOLD, I SAY UNTO YOU, LIFT UP YOUR EYES, AND LOOK ON THE FIELDS; FOR THEY ARE WHITE ALREADY TO HARVEST.” JOHN 4:35
Mankind has a tendency to push revival back to sometime in the future.
DO YOU HEAR THE WORD OF JESUS TODAY? SAY YE NOT, IN OTHER WORDS DON’T SAY THERE ARE FOUR MONTHS AND THEN IT IS TIME TO HARVEST, THE WORLD IS READY FOR REVIVAL NOW, NOW, NOW.
REVIVAL, REVIVAL, REVIVAL. (NOW, NOW, NOW).
“AS GOD’S PARTNERS, WE BEG YOU NOT TO ACCEPT THIS MARVELOUS GIFT OF GOD’S KINDNESS AND THEN IGNORE IT. FOR GOD SAYS, AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME, I HEARD YOU. ON THE DAY OF SALVATION I HELPED YOU.” 2 Corinthians 6:1-2, NEW LIVING TRANSLATION. INDEED THE “RIGHT TIME” IS NOW. TODAY IS THE DAY OF SALVATION.”
We have done 2 Skype ministries in the Middle East and saw a great move of the Spirit in the church. At the end of the service we also gave an altar call.
If you have just came to this ministry website today or have been visiting it on a more regular basis and the Spirit of the Lord has talked to your heart about going into intercessory prayer for Nita and myself and this ministry and giving financially even on a monthly basis we just ask that you will be obedient to what the Lord has spoken for you to do.
I believe there are some of you that have been touched by the Spirit of God by the work and vision that Nita and I have been called to and you want to help us and we do need your help spiritually and financially.
“If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land.” Isaiah 1:19
We thank you.
We are spreading the Word of God around the world as the Holy Spirit leads us to new areas in an ever increasing amount.

If you have come to this ministry website today and have never asked Jesus Christ to come into your life and be born again, you are not here by accident, the Spirit of the Living God drew you here.
If you do not have the assurance of where you would spend eternity if you died right now please go to the top of this website and it will have a tab for “SALVATION.” In that tab will be what is required by God to be right with Him. When you pray that prayer and accept the Lord please send us a g mail to our website at: firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know that you accepted the Lord as your Savior and Lord and were born again. We want to rejoice with you and pray for you. Thank you (Please look up these scriptures: John 3:3 and Romans 10:9-10 it talks about you being born again).
Surely you know people who are going through hell and high water with real battles in their life both Christians and those that are not born again Christians. The Word of God that is presented each week will help turn their situation around if they do the Word of God and instead of the anguish and tears will bring a smile and victory to their life, isn’t that worth you sharing this website with others?
This includes the ones that not able to go to church because of disabilities and sickness or for one reason or another can’t attend church. Can you imagine how this Word of God would bless and comfort them? Please share this website with these folks also.
