The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned. For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this. Isaiah 9:2, 6, 7
The waiting is over. The time of longing and anticipation. The time of patient endurance. The time of pacing and clock watching ends. He is here!
The Giver and Maker of Light has come. He removes the darkness. He has moved in. The darkness cannot stay in His presence. Light floods in. It reveals. He is Light.
He is here! The One who was long awaited. The One who broke the silence of 400 years. The One who had been promised and prophesied about. The One who seemed ordinary and yet was like nothing anyone had ever met, known or understood. The One who would walk in humble meekness and teach with authority. The One whom from birth was marked with a cross. The One who would change everything simply by His coming. He is here!
