So, warning! This blog is going to contain spoilers! *gasp*
After all, the next reading features a messianic prophecy. And, guess what sorts of pictures would be perfect to illustrate a messianic prophecy?
If you guessed pictures of Jesus, you are absolutely right!
I know… images of an adult Jesus before we are even officially celebrating His birth? That’s a bit odd! But oh well… the pictures fit perfectly — trust me on this!
And so, here is the ornament!
And here is the reading… one of my favorites, to be honest. 🙂
The Great Light
1The people who walked in darknesshave seen a great light;Upon those who lived in a land of glooma light has shone.
2You have brought them abundant joyand great rejoicing;They rejoice before you as people rejoice at harvest,as they exult when dividing the spoils.
5For a child is born to us, a son is given to us;upon his shoulder dominion rests.They name him Wonder-Counselor, God-Hero,Father-Forever, Prince of Peace.
6His dominion is vastand forever peaceful,Upon David’s throne, and over his kingdom,which he confirms and sustainsBy judgment and justice,both now and forever.The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this!
Doesn’t that make you excited about the coming of Christ???
Anyway! For tomorrow, expect less messianic poetry and more stories. In particular, expect a story with lots of fire. 🙂
