This Is  the LORD  for Whom  We Have Waited

The people waited  for the Savior  for thousands  of years.     Just as promised,  He came  and swallowed up death forever,  powerfully wipes away all our tears,  and removes the reproach  of all those  who believe  in Him.     So,  with joy  Isaiah 25:9 declares,

And  it will be said  in that day,
“Behold,  this is our God  for whom  we have waited  that He might save us.
This is the LORD  for whom  we have waited;
Let us rejoice  and be glad  in His salvation.”

So,  how do we today  behold  our Lord  and God,  Christ Jesus?     We open up  His eternal word  —  read the prophecies  throughout the Old Testament  —  read the eye witness accounts  of Jesus’ life,  suffering,  death,  and resurrection  —  and realize  that God  has kept  all His promises  of a Savior.

In the truths  of God’s word  over the ages  we behold  our Savior  and declare,  “This is the LORD  for whom  we have waited.”     That is when  we can  “rejoice  and be glad  in His salvation”.     Then  our resurrection celebration  will be  what God wants it  to be  —  instead of being  the world’s celebration  of heathen myths.

In the joy  of truth,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  Your salvation  is all glorious  and almighty.”

Love,
Margaret
