This is the time, as Advent draws to an end and Christmas Day is upon us, that we take the time to commemorate Jesus' coming into the world two millennia ago, taking on our humanity upon Himself, living as one of us, being born as a helpless babe in the meanest of conditions. And we anticipate with readiness His Second Coming; not as a babe but as a King and God, not in a stable but from the heavens, ushered not by the animals but by the hosts of Heaven trumpeting His triumphant return.
To any Jewish readers; Orthodox, Conservative or Reform - rejoice! Messiah is coming! Be ready to receive Him when He comes. No one knows the time nor the place, but we know that it is soon.
