This year the month of December begins with the First Sunday in Advent. The themes of the season reflect upon the ways in which God prepared the world to receive His Son before Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem two millennia ago, the First Advent. Now God provides us a season of opportunity in the current age to prepare to receive His Son again at the Second Advent. As the angels said to Christ’s disciples as He ascended into heaven in glory: This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. (Acts 1:11) Even so, come, Lord Jesus. (Revelation 22:20)
