ADVENT: the coming into place, view, or being; arrival.
Today is the first Sunday of Advent–the beginning of the Christmas Season that Christians celebrate the anniversary of God’s first coming into the world–the birth of Jesus Christ.
It’s more than man’s mere mind can comprehend–God, Who created the world and everything in it, stooping down to be born in human form (John 1:1-3, Phil. 2:6-7), but that’s what was foretold in prophecy & what transpired.
Immanuel: God with us (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23).
David, in Psalm 8, ponders God even being mindful of man–but mindful of man God is–and purposeful. He came in human flesh to become the perfect sacrificial lamb that would take away the sin of the world (John 1:29). The gift of eternal life would be for all who believe and receive Him (John 3:16, Eph. 2:4-9).
