On December 21, 2020, on the darkest day of the year – Winter Solstice – when all were filled with fear of death; just when the tyrants of death claimed victory … a sign shown in the sky – a tiny star; a “Christmas Star.”
How easy would it be for us all to fall into despair, accepting defeat. Isn’t that what they felt as Jesus laid in the tomb? “It’s over,” they lamented. Death and the tyrants of death won.
But, God reminded us that it is always darkest before the dawn. God reminded us that death is not the victor. God reminded us that the true light, who gives light to everyone, was coming into the world.
Now, as creation all around us is bursting forth with “signs of life,” churches throughout the world took a tiny flame from a blessed fire and let that light spread throughout the church and, from there, throughout the world!
YOU are a child of the LIGHT!!!!
YOU are commissioned to BRING IT to the world!!!
REVIVAL IS COMING!! REVIVAL IS COMING!! REVIVAL IS COMING!!
