"For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this."
You know that moment on the holiday, when the work is done, the preparations are all made, the cooking is complete, and you’re about to sit down to the feast, the family is gathering – that’s what we’re waiting for.
In our long war against the serpent, we will one day hang up our weapons for good, sit down, and sigh with contentment.
