My Musings – We cannot really understand the ancient prophecies concerning the birth of the Prince of Peace, until we come to understand why the King wore a crown of thorns. “But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities…and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.” A crown of thorns, worn to His death, so that we might wear a crown of life.
My Advice – The first coming is in the past. The second coming draws closer each day. The “birth pains” are more frequent and intense. Soon, “as surely as I live,” says the Lord, “every knee will bow before me; every tongue will confess to God.” (Romans 14:11, NIV 1984). If we do not confess Him now, confessing Him then will be too late. Are you ready?
