A Prophetic View on Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”

Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer
had a very shiny nose.
And if you ever saw it
you would even say it glows.

All of the other reindeer
used to laugh and call him names.
They never let poor Rudolph
join in any reindeer games.

Then one foggy Christmas Eve
Santa came to say,
‘Rudolph with your nose so bright,
won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?’

Then all the reindeer loved him
as they shouted out with glee,
‘Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer,
you’ll go down in history!’

It may seem like I’m making this up, but I’m not. When the chips were down a few years ago, the Lord gave me a prophetic interpretation of the song, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. He can re-interpret anything He wants to–after all He’s God, and He can do what He wants.

It was in the heat of summer, and I was going through a tough time. I was on a trip praying for some hard cases–without much success. Truly, like many of you, I wondered if God was with me, or not!

That’s when the Lord had me put on my headset and listen to “Rudolph,” which was already loaded into my iPod. Every night I’d go back to the hotel and listen to it–with a new set of ears.

Here’s how and why God did this–I THINK!

In 1993, they made a famous movie called, “Rudy.” It was about a guy who didn’t have it in him to even play football, much less excel at it. He was half the size of most football players, but had the spirit of five players combined in him.

Eventually, Rudy became famous for having so much heart and soul, and he was allowed just one play on the Notre Dame football team. That was all that was required. Just one play was necessary in order to be considered forever officially on one of the best college teams ever–Notre Dame.

Based on that movie, God changed the meaning of the Christmas song forever–at least for me–and hopefully now for you, too. (Amen)

Here’s what it means for all of us–re-interpreted (of course):

Rudy, the discerning reindeer
had the most discerning “nose.”
And if you ever saw it
you would really say “it glows.”

All of the other reigning ones
used to laugh and call him names.
They wouldn’t let ol’ Rudy
play in ANY reigning games.

Then one foggy Christ-filled eve,
Jesus came to say,
“Rudy, with your discernment bright,
won’t you lead My slaying of the dragon tonight?”

THEN all the other reigning ones loved him,
and now they shouted out with glee,
“Rudy, you’re so discerning,
you’ll go down in HIS STORY!”

God is speaking to His entire Church in this SEASON. He’s passing out discernment, especially to all those who have been laughed at all their lives for who they are.

Merry Christmas–God is promoting you!
