A musical celebration of the Advent of the Christ.
This is the reason we acknowledge the birth of Jesus of Nazareth as the Savior of the world.
*Zechariah 9:9-13 (NKJV)*
Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King is coming to you; He is just and having salvation, Lowly and riding on a donkey, A colt, the foal of a donkey.
I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim And the horse from Jerusalem; The battle bow shall be cut off. He shall speak peace to the nations; His dominion shall be ‘from sea to sea, And from the River to the ends of the earth.’
***As for you also, Because of the blood of your covenant, I will set your prisoners free from the waterless pit.***
***Return to the stronghold, You prisoners of hope. Even today I declare That I will restore double to you.***
For I have bent Judah, My bow, Fitted the bow with Ephraim, And raised up your sons, O Zion, Against your sons, O Greece, And made you like the sword of a mighty man.”
The fulfillment of God’s promise of deliverance. THIS is the reason we celebrate the birth of Messiah, the Anointed, who came to save us from the pit of death into which we fell.
