Hebrews 9:11-22

But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;
-Hebrews 9:11

Micah 4-5
Revelation 12

The conductor stood on the podium, his eyes scanning the choir and orchestra. The singers arranged the music in their folders, found a comfortable position for standing, and held the folder where they could see the conductor just over the top. Orchestra members positioned their music on the stand, found a comfortable position in their seats, and then sat still. The conductor waited and watched until everyone was ready. Then, with a downbeat of his baton, the sounds of Handel’s “Overture to Messiah” filled the cathedral.
With the sound swirling around me, I felt I was immersed in Christmas – when God, at just the right moment, signalled the downbeat and set in motion an overture that started with the birth of the Messiah, the “High Priest of the good things to come” (Hebrews 9:11).
Every Christmas, as we celebrate Christ’s first coming with glorious music, I’m reminded that God’s people, like choir and orchestra members, are getting ready for the next downbeat of the conductor when Christ will come again. On that day, we will participate with Him in the final movement of God’s symphony of redemption – making all things new (Revelation 21:5). In anticipation, we need to keep our eyes on the Conductor and make sure we are ready. – Julie Ackerman Link
Sound the soul-inspiring anthem,
Angel hosts, your harps attune;
Earth’s long night is almost over,
Christ is coming – coming soon! – Macomber

The advent of Christ celebrates His birth and anticipates His return.
