The Advent Season of Christmas

We're getting ready for Advent Season which begins November 30th in 2014. We light the first Advent wreath candle Sunday morning, "The Candle of Hope." (BTW, the word "advent" means the anticipated arrival of a special person. In this case, we eagerly anticipate the past arrival of Christ's birth in Bethlehem, the City of David, which we commemorate each year on December 25th.) 

There will be a Second Advent, a Second Coming, when Christ arrives abruptly for the Day of Resurrection and Judgment to end our human/universal timeline as we know it currently and usher in heaven/hell for all. This present universe will be destroyed/renewed with fire for the Present Age must give way to the Age to Come in which sin will be banished and righteousness will reign.
