Re:Verse passage – Mark 1:9-15 (day seven)
“Oh, that You would rend the heavens and come down,
That the mountains might quake at Your presence.” Isaiah 64:1
“Immediately coming up out of the water, He saw the heavens opening, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon Him.” Mark 1:10
This is war. A battle plan that has been in works since before time began. Sin and death have no chance for God has become man. He’s here to fight. Advent allows us to celebrate this coming King because we know the how the story ends (spoiler alert: God wins!), but this is the beginning of that end. This is the Commander-In-Chief joining the front lines, inspiring hope, leading by example. “This is how you fight your battles: Repent. Believe. Be Baptized. Fight temptation. Make war! You are not in this alone. I Am with you.”
Are you following this example? Are you making war? Or are you sitting back and letting the enemy come to your doorstep? Make War!
