Merry Christmas From Drell’s Descants

Isaiah 9:2-9, from Anglicanism’s greatest contribution to Christianity, the King James Bible:

2: The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.
3: Thou hast multiplied the nation, and not increased the joy: they joy before thee according to the joy in harvest, and as men rejoice when they divide the spoil.
4: For thou hast broken the yoke of his burden, and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, as in the day of Midian.
5: For every battle of the warrior is with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but this shall be with burning and fuel of fire.
6: For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
7: Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

Indeed, the Lord of Hosts has performed this, and is performing it, and will perform it. Christ is still coming into the world, even 2000 years later, to establish His Kingdom. May His government and peace increase. Amen. BLD

    To you and yours, Brad

    Numbers 6:24-26

    The Lord bless you, and keep you;
    The Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious unto you;
    The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.

    Merry Christmas. May the season be holy unto you.
