Balancing the Scales

Isaiah 11LIn 586 a terrible army destroyed
Israel. Yahweh wants a people that love him.
500 years later Jesus came.
A shoot will grow up from the stump of Jesse; a branch will sprout from his roots. The LORD's spirit will rest upon him, a spirit of wisdom and understanding, a spirit of planning and strength, a spirit of knowledge and fear of the LORD. He will delight in fearing the LORD. He won't judge by appearances, nor decide by hearsay. Righteousness will be the belt around his hips, and faithfulness the belt around his waist. The wolf will live with the lamb, and the leopard will lie down with the young goat; the calf and the young lion will feed together, and a little child will lead them. A nursing child will play over the snake's hole; toddlers will reach right over the serpent's den. They won't harm or destroy anywhere on my holy mountain. The earth will surely be filled with the knowledge of the LORD , just as the water covers the sea.
Isaiah 11:1-3, 5-6, 8-9 CEB
Luke 1.31 Matthew 2.2
Psalm talked about justice.
God came in and punished Israel. We judge too often. God knows what we do. To often it becomes oppression.
The season is not about us. The kingdom is coming to celebrate what God is doing
