The Coming of the Judge – The Rev. Dr. Uri Brito (Advent II)

Title: The Coming of the Judge by Pastor Uriesou T. Brito

The great theologian and apologist Cornelius Van Til once wrote: “He [Christ] came to bring peace, to be sure, but the peace that He came to bring must be built upon the complete destruction of the power of darkness.”

Text: ​”Behold, I send my messenger, and he will prepare the way before me. And the Lord whom you seek will suddenly come to his temple; and the messenger of the Covenant in whom you delight, behold, he is coming, says the LORD of hosts. But who can endure the day of his coming, and who can stand when he appears? For he is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap. He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and he will purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and silver, and they will bring offerings in righteousness to the LORD. Then the offering of Judah and Jerusalem will be pleasing to the LORD as in the days of old and as in former years. (Malachi 3:1-4 ESV)

“The birth of our Lord was a frightening thing! How do we know this? Because King Herod worked viciously to see that this coming would never take place. The manger was a significant threat to the kingdoms of this world and the God-despising Kings.” – Rev. Dr. Uri Brito
