Everything has become new!

Sure, we’ve got a new year, a new decade, the second one in the new millennium!
However, what helps more time chronologically spoken, unless this new time is filled with the new that God wants to do!
The Prophet Haggai couldn’t merely do with new years in a raw of many others, He wanted a new year with quite a differents content, a content of GOD’S ACTIVITY.

In order to fill the new year with a content with God’s miracles Israel celebrated countless ceremonies, celebrations, which in their turn were seen as a take-back of what God did once,
•    the Exodus from Egypt,
•    *the passing of the Red Sea,
•    God’s care with food for 40 o drink years in the wilderness,
•    The reinauguration and deliverance of the occupied temple.

Now we do not need like the Messianic movement today, return to these ceremonies, no, they are only shadows of things to come. Reality itself is in Christ, of whom Paul says:
If anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation, everything old has passed away, see everything has become new-
2 Cor 5:17.
The Greek original term does not indicate an attempt to remove the dust from old intentions, from old year’s resolutions with new ones.
Follow the proclamation Saturday, January 29th at 19 in Askeland Missionshus, outside Vårgårda!
