A Promise Fulfilled

Advent is a time for remembering ~ an invitation to look back upon the course of the years, leading up to the fulfillment of a promise given to us at the dawn of Creation.  The hope given to us by God the Father after the disobedience of our First Parents.  We were intended for the Paradise of Eden; but lost it through the sin of Adam and Eve.  We received Mercy beyond comprehension by the promise of the coming of Jesus Who would restore right relationship with our Triune God ~ our True Home! This has been called The Protoevangelium of Salvation or the “First Good News!” Genesis 3:15


The coming of Jesus is the turning point or the beginning of our return which can be called the Great Circle of Love.  We came from the Bosom of the Father and through the life, death and resurrection of His Son Jesus, we can return to the Father according to Jesus’ own words:  “May they all be one, Father, may they be one in us, as you are in me as I am in you….I have given them the glory you have given to me, that they may be one in us as we are one.”  John 17: 21-22
