Comforter

To Comfort My People

The German composer, Handel, opened his famous concert, Messiah, with this song from Scripture. The Prophet Isaiah wrote in chapter 40 a message to “Comfort My people, Israel” to let them know their appointed time has come to deliver them and remove the yoke of those who serve themselves of them.

“Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God. Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare/appointed time is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she has received of the LORD’s hand double for all her sins.

The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all people shall see it together: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.”

Isaiah 40:1-5

The Great and Dreadful Day of the LORD

Jesus said great signs would be given to indicate the Day of the LORD. In the early morning hours of this day, there appeared a great sign in heaven. A Super ‘Blood’ Moon, Total Lunar Eclipse. He said to ‘Watch!’ so that day does not come upon you in unawareness. For as a snare it shall come upon all them that dwell upon the face of the whole earth.

“But when you shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not yet. Then he said to them, ‘Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: And great earthquakes shall be in diverse/different places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven

For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.”

A Special Invitation to the Messiah

Are you ready for the Messiah to come? On Friday, December 24th, the Firmament will present for your enjoyment Handel’s Messiah as a unique blend of the Classical, Young and Soulful Messiah.

The lyrics will be provided here along with a PDF you can call up or print out to follow and sing along with us. You will find that the entire score is as a “string of pearls” so to speak, from the King James Version of the Bible.

It opens with Isaiah 40: “Comfort ye, comfort ye my people…” Let them know the appointed time has come and their iniquity is pardoned. Jesus said after he had gone to the Father, he would send the Comforter who would come in his name and remind you of all the things he has said.

So then if you pay close attention, you will realize there are two ‘Great Lights’ spoken of in this compilation. There are indeed two Messiahs spoken of.

An Epiphany

the-three-magi-Epiphany

Many are anticipating the ‘epiphany’ or manifestation of the Messiah in these times of Tribulation. Christ himself revealed how he would manifest and to whom. This article will show the false and the true.

The word ‘epiphany’ is one of Greek origin. It is defined as; 1. to manifest or to show 2. an appearance or manifestation of a divine being 3. a sudden manifestation or perception of the essential nature or meaning of something (as when something ‘dawns on you’, you suddenly or slowly perceive or understand).
