There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse, and a branch from his roots shall bear fruit. And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord. ~ Isaiah 11:1-2

And again Isaiah says, “The root of Jesse will come, even he who arises to rule the Gentiles; in him will the Gentiles hope”. ~ Romans 15:12

Advent should be a time of great joy as we wait to celebrate again the coming of the one on one whom the spirit rests and in whom we hope.
