Welcome to Hope Talk
One week before Christmas, the day we celebrate the birth of God as man. Now that is an amazing truth and statement. God with man. Emmanuel. We do not know the time, date, specific location, save Bethlehem stable with animals and visiting shepherds from nearby fields all a-glow from an angel chorus. We do know it happened and all of heaven rejoiced as earth will rejoice together and we now rejoice in hope for that time of future glory over past glory. There is little peace on earth and very little good will or men of good will, either way. BUT GOD! Peace is coming and has a guarantee in our hearts through the Holy Spirit dwelling within His children reminding them of their home forever with the Almighty so not to worry and fret over present concerns, failures, falsehoods, and corruptions. The King Reigns and will throughout all of eternity. He will have His way in all matters. Evil and death will be banished and conquered forever as we worship the Lamb Who was slain for our sins, paying our debt, and procuring our status as Children of God. It began in time on that lonely night in which unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given and all and everything was different. Blessed be the Lord God, Creator of heaven and earth, and lover of our souls. Let Him be praised!
