Advent 2022 – Day 29: Revelation 1:8, 22:12-13

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”
“Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense with me, to repay each one for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”

Revelation 1:8, 22:12-13 ESV

At Advent, we look back at why Jesus had to come, that He came, and then that He will come again.

Jesus is the Eternal Son of God who was with the Father “before” Creation, through whom all things were created.

We rebelled against our Creator, thinking we could be like Him or had no need for Him.

Yet, God came to us, paying for our sins while reserving wrath for those who refuse to believe.

And Jesus is coming again.

He came as a baby, becoming like us to grow up and save us, and we remember this.

But we also remember that this Man is also our God – truly man and truly God at once and completely.

He died on a cross for us, but He arose again from the dead proving that this Jesus is our God of wrath and grace.

And He is returning soon in His wrath and grace to finally and completely fully redeem this world to Himself.

May we seek the Lord who has defeated sin and death, has saved us, and is coming back again in glory.

Hallelujah and Amen.

Come, Lord Jesus!

Advent 2022 – Day 7: Isaiah 9:6-7

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.

Isaiah 9:6-7, ESV

At Advent, we look back at why Jesus had to come, that He came, and then that He will come again.

We may do horrible things to ourselves, to each other, and against God.

We tend to commit so many injustices against each other, to seek manufactured kindness and perceived justice that still harms others, even intentionally.

Yet, God came to show us His kindness, the depths of His justice and love, using our horribleness and injustice to redeem us as our Savior and King.

His Kingdom is growing in this world, but there is still much work to be done.

Our mighty God is destroying strongholds and bringing peace to individuals and groups.

He became one of us here onthe earth, being born in the natural way, but He is currently reigning from Heaven. He has sent His Counselor to live in and through us to spread His rule across the globe and time.

We have failed time and again, yet He works in and through us – the redeemed of the Lord – to bring about righteousness.

So we do not lose heart in this broken and wicked world, rather we join with our Lord in zealously seeking those whom will be saved and ushering in the Kingdom of Heaven on earth.

May we seek the Lord who works in us to spread His kindness and grace and justice.
