On that day, a shoot shall sprout from the stump of Jesse, and from his roots a bud shall blossom. The Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him: a Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, a Spirit of counsel and of strength, a Spirit of knowledge and of fear of the LORD, and his delight shall be the fear of the LORD. . . .
The baby shall play by the cobra’s den, and the child lay his hand on the adder’s lair. There shall be no harm or ruin on all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be filled with knowledge of the LORD, as water covers the sea.
On that day, the root of Jesse, set up as a signal for the nations, the Gentiles shall seek out, for his dwelling shall be glorious. Is_11:1-10
Out from the dead stump, comes LIFE!
And not just any life, GLORIOUS life!
And there will be:
Knowledge of the Lord!
Peace on earth!
Salvation for EVERYONE!
“On that day!” This is
our hope, our life, our driving force,
Come, beloved! It’s more than a tree and some lights. It’s more than reindeer and a sleigh. It’s more than our little gifts! It’s the absolute best Gift anyone can give and anyone can receive!
