THE PROMISE OF A KING
Jesus is coming soon, just as he promised.
In England we have a Queen, and she sits on the UK throne, but she is also a Christian, and looks forward, as other Christians do, to the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Redeemer.
The reign of Jesus Christ will be like no other monarch's reign, because it will be for ever, in justice and peace.
When Jesus was born, angels filled the sky and sang for joy.
When Jesus was murdered, by the men he had come to redeem, the sky darkened, and an earthquake ripped the Temple curtain which had seperated God from man, which meant that all men could speak to God, not through a go between priest any more, but directly to Jesus Christ.
Thinks about it for a moment. What an amazing thing that is. We are microscopic little ants, in a vast universe - yet we can actually speak to God!
Love came down at Christmastime. Blessed are those who believe.
