2019 The Divine Promise ADVENT
 
December 22, 2019
Fourth Sunday of Advent
 
The Divine Promise...Sign of the Promise
 
Focus Scriptures: 
Isaiah 7:10-16    Psalm 80:1-7, 17-19
 

Ahab, one of Judah's worst King refused to ask God for help concerning two neighboring Kings who wanted to invade Judah. He refused God's help because he did not want to test God. However, God gave him a sign, “a virgin would conceive and give birth to a Son and his name shall be called Immanuel”.  Before the child is old enough, the two invading Kings would be destroyed. Matthew records that a virgin (Mary) was found with child of the Holy Spirit. At birth the child was given the name Jesus, Son of God born in the line of David.

God's Mercy

 

“ 'His mercy is for those who fear him from generation to generation...He has helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy, according to the promise he made to our ancestors, to Abraham and to his descendants forever.'”  Luke 1:50, 54-55.  Just as her ancestors did, Mary has hope that God will act with justice and mercy.  Jesus will come as a babe to save the world.  He showed us he is the fulfillment of the Old Testament prophets and kings who spoke of God's promise.  He asks that we fear God, that we revere him.  We only need look in our Bibles for God's truth and to Jesus for his sacrifice so that our sins were forgiven.  When we look back at all he has done in our lives, we know he is a just God who loves us and will fulfill his promises to us.  Prayer: God of our darkness, you remain our hope in even our most hopeless moments.  When trouble makes the echoes of your saving power grow faint in our ears, place at our sides those whose hearing is stronger than our own.  Thank you for fulfilling your promise in selecting Mary to be the mother of your Son.  Amen
