Shadows are growing long. Soon darkness sets in as the source of light leaves, only to be reflected upon moon and stars, even until there is no moon, and then only the stars…only Orion…warrior in the night sky.
“Behold, I send my messenger before thy face…”
“the voice of one roaring in the wilderness; Prepare ye the way of the Lord; make His paths straight.”
“Then he said unto the multitudes coming out to be baptized by him; O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance…”
“But truly the ax is laid to the root of the trees; therefore every tree not producing good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.”
Who are today’s messengers? As the modern church fails, what becomes our source of light? How can we be guided in the darkness? By the stars. Look to the stars. Look for the messengers.
“And the multitude asked him, saying; What then shall we do? And responding he says to them, Let the one having two coats, give to him having none, and let the one having food do likewise.”
When John was still in his mothers womb, when Mary arrived, he leaped within Elizabeth and she was filled with the Holy Spirit and began to prophecy. Then Mary, the mother of Jesus began speaking and said: “He filled the poor with good things, and sent away the rich empty.” (Luke 1:53)
Jesus said, Blessed are the poor in spirit.
More Holy Spirit; dynamite! They that hunger and thirst after righteousness, they shall be filled. God is here and he speaks. Is he speaking riddles? Or is the message plain? If my people humble themselves…
Bless the Lord oh my soul, I wait upon you oh Lord.
