Waiting for the day

Israel had become an indiscernible mess of idolatry and God pronounced a judgement upon her/him. Yet within the judgement comes a promise that Elijah shall return before a greater judgement. And then it is as if God were silent as the night or Zechariah the husband of Elizabeth after the rebuke from Gabriel. Malachi 4:1-6. Four hundred years pass and the eternal watchman slumbers not. Psalm 121:1-8. God corresponds in human flesh and angelic pronouncement to those "that mourn in lonely exile" amidst the might and ingenuity of Rome that swarms the land like locusts that devour.

O Come, O Come Emmanuel - Sovereign Grace
