1 Jn 2:18-21 "Children, it is the last hour; and just as you heard that the antichrist was coming, so now many antichrists have appeared. Thus we know this is the last hour. "
This can seem scary, yet St. John continues "But you have the anointing that comes from the Holy One, and you all have knowledge."
The Psalm says "Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice!"
St. John's Gospel (Jn 1:1-18) "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came to be through him, and without him nothing came to be. What came to be through him was life, and this life was the light of the human race; the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it."
This is why we are not scared.
This is why we kneel, when we pray "And the Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us". The distant God becomes our God, Emmanuel - "God with us".
At the birth of The Lord, The Second Person of the Trinity, The Son, became known as Jesus.
Through Jesus, we have seen God. "No one has ever seen God. The only-begotten Son, has revealed him."
St. Sylvester I , pray for us.
