Old Testament Advent Poem No. 10

Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever;
a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom.
You love righteousness and hate wickedness;
therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions
by anointing you with the oil of joy.  Psalm 45: 6&7
 
 But about the Son he says,
“Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever;
a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions
by anointing you with the oil of joy.” Hebrew 1:8&9
 

The palace:DSC_0003crop

the backyard of
a small town inn.

The throne:
a manger

The courtly attendants:
Shepherds.

The king is born!

Long live the King!

David’s throne
has reached its destiny.

In infant frailty,
the power of God.

Last Year’s Poems

In temporal clothes,
eternity.

Surrounded by brokenness,
holy perfection.
