God acts

Thursday December 4th, Mark 1st 13: 26"And then they'll see the Son of Man enter in grand style, his Arrival filling the sky--no one will miss it! 27He'll dispatch the angels; they will pull in the chosen from the four winds, from pole to pole. The expectations in Isaiah were fulfilled in the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem.  Not by the Christ, but by all the angels who knew from before time what this event meant for the world.  In Mark’s Gospel we find similar expectations.  What will it be like when the Son of Man returns?  Will there be the “Left Behind” scenario where only a few are chosen and the many left behind?  Are the chosen only the hundred and forty four thousand, the frozen chosen, the right believers?  Listen to the Emmanuel, God with us version in which a babe is born in a manger and brings salvation to the whole world.  This is the way God acts in the world.  However, even with the Emmanuel version, it is always a good idea to live ready.
