First Sunday of Advent C. 2021

ADVENT FIRST SUNDAY C.

COVID VACCINE 2021

Power to stand, resisting the winds of fade and fashion.

Strength to stand, head held high in the fires of opinion and lies.

Courage to stand, awake and vigilant ruthless for the coming of the Kingdom of Heaven!

Brothers and Sisters may God increase the strength of your connection in love and expand the holiness of God’s life in you for we struggle with corporations and bureaucracies, social media and peer pressure.

Now is the time of the triumph of the world rulers of this present darkness (Ephs. 6:10-17).

Now the confederacy of evil and the tactics of the devil are in ascendency. They are judged not guilty.

Escape from tribulations is failure to give testimony and bare witness.

Blown by the winds of fad and fashion.

Cast into the furnace of opinion and lies.

Anxious for the wine, the money, and the friends of social media,

Connect yourselves sisters and brothers to the cross of Christ crucified, your redemption is at hand!

Everyone is being assaulted: Marriage and family, Church and State, friends and enemies so pray for the strength to stand erect.

Pray for the power to raise your head. Pray for the courage to testify.

To the wind, to the fire, to the flood, to Caesar testify like a brother on trial for being.

Prepare the way of the Lord. Make straight his paths. The victory and salvation of God comes in the cloud!

Remove your robe of mourning and misery. Put on the splendor of the glory of God forever and stand.

Now is the time of the triumph of the world rulers of this present darkness. Now the confederacy of evil and the tactics of the devil are in ascendency. They are judged not guilty.

Who indeed is on trial in the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse?

In the trial of Greg and Travis McMichael who is on trial?

What curtain has been lifted? What face has been revealed, What spirit breathes behind the mask of the great and powerful Oz?

Let those with eyes to see, see.

Smash and grab that glittering fallen star, all that diamond dust made red with blood; on earth nations dismayed and in disarray.

How should we conduct ourselves to please our God? (1 Thes. 4:2).

Do not be deceived but know the truth.

Testify to the Truth, when you are called.

Do not prepare your defense beforehand.

You will be handed over and hated for the name of Jesus.

By your stance, you will secure eternal life (Lk.).

We struggle with governments and social media, with corporate rulers of this present darkness, with cultures fallen, evil and unclean.

Be vigilant and awake brothers and sisters. Fast and pray. May God increase the strength of your connection in love and expand the holiness of God’s life in you.

“The people who walk in darkness have seen a great light” (Isa. 9:1). And that light must be you and us.
