We are about to celebrate the fulfillment of this prophecy. Enjoy Advent!

Daniel 7:13-14
“I saw in the night visions, and behold, with the clouds of heaven there came one like a son of man, and he came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before him.
And to him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve him; his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom one that shall not be destroyed.

It is remarkable how often sheep appear in the Bible and how often Jesus, descendant of David, appears to shepherd us. Thank you God, we badly need shepherding.

Ezekiel 34:22-24
I will rescue my flock; they shall no longer be a prey. And I will judge between sheep and sheep.
And I will set up over them one shepherd, my servant David, and he shall feed them: he shall feed them and be their shepherd.
And I, the Lord, will be their God, and my servant David shall be prince among them. I am the Lord; I have spoken.

We will always falter in our faithfulness but He never does. However, we can stir up one another, and we should.

Hebrews 10:23-24
Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.
And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works,

The guy who wrote Hebrews was pretty good with word pictures. He transforms the Holy Bible from a dusty book on your shelf to the living, piercing, discerning Christ. It is so exciting!

Hebrews 4:12
For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Are you feeling as anxious as I am? Prayer is available and a ready solace. Here is a good one for today. It is a good one any day.

Psalm 119:132-133
Look upon me and be merciful to me, As Your custom is toward those who love Your name.
Direct my steps by Your word, And let no iniquity have dominion over me.

I do think these are times of difficulty and these descriptions fit so well the people running for President. They each have good qualities too, but the advice to avoid such people is very sound. Would that we could.

2 Timothy 3:1-5
But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty.
For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,
heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good,
treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,
having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.
