Wild Promises: The Coming of God
Bible Text: Matthew 11:2-11, Isaiah 35:1-10 | Preacher: Rev. Andrew T. Barton | Series: Wild Promises
The Wild Promises of Advent—Read the word of the Lord that came to the prophet Isaiah and we find them laughable. God makes some pretty extreme promises which could leave us scratching our heads in disbelief. Farm implements to replace weapons of war? A world leader who rules with righteousness? Really? What are we to make of these wild promises when after a few millenia nothing seems to have come of them? This Advent we will delve into these ancient assurances looking for reasons to believe they are true.
