This four-part study looks at the ways that Jesus turned things upside down when he came to Earth. As the introduction to the study says, “[Advent is] more than a nice tale about a baby being born in difficult circumstances. It is the strategy of God and the tactics of the Son. It’s about life, death, blood, confrontation, darkness, light, and war. It’s the clash of two kingdoms.”
Jesus Came to Overcome Darkness
Jesus’ coming to earth revealed the great
clash of two kingdoms.
Advent is an immensely important event. It’s
more than a nice tale about a baby being born
in difficult circumstances. It is the strategy of
God and the tactics of the Son. It’s about life,
death, blood, confrontation, darkness, light,
and war. It’s the clash of two kingdoms.
Jesus Came to Overcome Blindness
There are at least four ways that show Jesus has overcome
the darkness and given sight to the blind.
2 Corinthians 4:4
Advent is a clash of two kingdoms—darkness
and light. Christ is the only way that darkness
can be overcome and through him we can
receive sight. His power over nature and death,
his understanding of human nature, and his
zeal for God conquer all that is dark.
Jesus Came to Deliver Us
Christ is the gate and the good shepherd.
Isaiah 40:11; Ezekiel 34:1–6, 23–24;
Advent does not celebrate the birth of mildness
and passiveness. Advent is world-altering and
life challenging. It is power beyond anything
we can imagine, coming with humble tactics
that strip human nature of self-sufficiency,
self-justification, and self-enthronement.
Jesus Came to Reveal His Glory
Jesus was Almighty God who came to earth
for our benefit.
John gives us an advantage when we read his
book—he tells us exactly why he wrote it and
what he wants us to get out of it, and lets us
know what the Advent season is all about.
John 20:31 says, “But these are written that
you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son
of God, and that by believing you may have life
in his name.”
