Advent: I Am

December 14, 2017

See, I am sending my messenger to prepare the way before me, and the Lord whom you seek will suddenly come to his temple. The messenger of the covenant in whom you delight—indeed, he is coming, says the Lord of hosts. But who can endure the day of his coming, and who can stand when he appears?

For he is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap; he will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and he will purify the descendants of Levi and refine them like gold and silver, until they present offerings to the Lord in righteousness. Then the offering of Judah and Jerusalem will be pleasing to the Lord as in the days of old and as in former years.

 Then I will draw near to you for judgement; I will be swift to bear witness against the sorcerers, against the adulterers, against those who swear falsely, against those who oppress the hired workers in their wages, the widow, and the orphan, against those who thrust aside the alien, and do not fear me, says the Lord of hosts.

 For I the Lord do not change; therefore you, O children of Jacob, have not perished.

Malachi 3:1-6

Jesus said to them, ‘Very truly, I tell you, before Abraham was, I am.’

John 8:58

Day 14

The end of the old meets the beginning of the new.

Whilst remembering God’s claim that he does not change. Like in Isaiah however (43 etc) he is still allowed to do a “new thing”.

In Christ we meet the same God as always but ready for their time… and ours.

The a bible would “argue” that God is always trying to be relevant to us and our needs including today. And since the beginning of the New Testament  that has been through Jesus.
