Advent is usually the 4 Sundays leading up to Christmas. A time to reflect and anticipate God’s arrival through his son Jesus Christ. With Eccl. finishing early November, I thought this may be an opportunity to start our preparations early. It gives us time to set the scene and explain the context. It allows us to show that Jesus was the promised Messiah by looking at some of the OT prophesy. It also allows us to taste and see the goodness of God who as soon as sin entered into the world planned and promised to save it.

God did not take thousands of years to come up with Christmas as his answer to the sinful behaviour of man. In the red hot moment of sin and rebellion God addresses sin, sinners and his creation and before the punishment of banishment from the garden takes effect, He promises us that all will be restored through the seed of a woman. That promise was fulfilled in the coming of Jesus. Lets not jump too quickly to Bethlehem lets understand God's plan from the perspective of Eden
