Advent: the great anticipation of the second coming of Jesus. In the Old Testament the Jews waited for their Messiah Jesus. Today Jesus leads the church and has filled us with His Spirit. But he’s coming again, and the promise of his second coming is dependent upon his promises and faithfulness. God foretold the Saviour would come the first time – and He did. God tells us that Jesus is coming again – He will. Our hope is in the promises of God and his faithfulness.
