A Feast Worth the Wait- Christmas in Isaiah

Having trouble waiting to open those presents? Is the anticipation killing you?
Some will lose sleep tonight so excited about the morning of surprises!

Isaiah 25 expresses why the Lord is worth the wait. Jesus came at the right time. The baby came into a world ready for the gospel. The Roman roads and the greek language were to be the vehicles for the spread of this amazing story.

Some of you will eat an amazing Christmas dinner tomorrow- look at what the Lord is cookin' up!

Isaiah 25:6 On this mountain the Lord of hosts will make for all peoples
a feast of rich food, a feast of well-aged wine,
of rich food full of marrow, of aged wine well refined.
7 And he will swallow up on this mountain
the covering that is cast over all peoples,
the veil that is spread over all nations.
8 He will swallow up death forever;
and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces,
and the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth,
for the Lord has spoken.
9 It will be said on that day,
“Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, that he might save us.
This is the Lord; we have waited for him;
let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.”

I hope your first thought in the morning will be rejoicing in this great God. He is definitely worth the wait! His gift is already open and waiting for you!
