Messages of Comfort
Prepare for God’s Arrival
40 1-2 “Comfort, oh comfort my people,”
says your God.
“Speak softly and tenderly to Jerusalem,
but also make it very clear
That she has served her sentence,
that her sin is taken care of—forgiven!
She’s been punished enough and more than enough,
and now it’s over and done with.”
3-5 Thunder in the desert!
“Prepare for God’s arrival!
Make the road straight and smooth,
a highway fit for our God.
Fill in the valleys,
level off the hills,
Smooth out the ruts,
clear out the rocks.
Then God’s bright glory will shine
and everyone will see it.
Yes. Just as God has said.”
What does it mean to prepare for someone’s arrival? What steps do we take for a special guest coming into our home?
We clean the house (Our temple). We want to make the best impression possible and make our guest feel at home.
So it is also when we await for God’s return. We use our time, here on earth, to prepare for the Lords return. After all we are the bride, awaiting for our Groom’s return.
