the advent crack...


There was this one day....when....God decided
THIS was the point in His Earthly creation to pull open the veil just a crack and let His two realms collide.
And looking down through His universe into an inky starry sky enveloping a tiny spinning planet
All heaven broke loose!

A place outside of our time cracked open just a little to give us a gift so unexpected we never saw it coming!
A God - human - baby
Ageless but brand new
All knowing but helpless
A King sleeping in a animal's food bowl
No beginning
No end

That thin veil between two realms cracked open
And some little human beings and some little sheep on a hillside fell over!!
They saw through the crack into....

What?

What did they see?
How can it be described in our inadequate words?
A glimpse into a place like nothing we can comprehend.
Light streams so bright our eyes couldn't handle it
Blazing!
Shining!
Piercing!
Invading the night so that
Not a drop of inky darkness could be seen anywhere

A place without time broke into our 'time bound' existence
And then...
Incomprehensibly beautiful music spilt out into the air and streamed its way down to God's earth
Multitudes of beings with wings that we cannot imagine winged down to sing God's Message.

Multitudes?
How many is that?
Multitudes of messengers....bringing the news to little human beings on a hillside
Entrusted to pass it on
To 'Gospel' it to everyone they saw

And what was 'The Message'?
Most of all, "Don't be afraid!"
"I'm here to announce a great and joyful event that is meant for everybody, worldwide: A Saviour has just been born in David's town. A Saviour who is Messiah and Master. This is what you're to look for: A baby wrapped in a blanket and lying in a manger."
"Glory to God in the heavenly heights. Peace to all men and women on earth who please him."


THAT'S what happened...that one day God decided to open the crack....between heaven and earth.
