For 5 December 2018, Wednesday of the 1st week of Advent, based on Isaiah 25:6-10a
On this mountain the LORD of hosts will provide for all peoples A feast of rich food and choice wines, juicy, rich food and pure, choice wines. On this mountain he will destroy the veil that veils all peoples, The web that is woven over all nations; he will destroy death forever. The Lord GOD will wipe away the tears from all faces; The reproach of his people he will remove from the whole earth; for the LORD has spoken. On that day it will be said: â€œBehold our God, to whom we looked to save us! This is the LORD for whom we looked; let us rejoice and be glad that he has saved us!â€ For the hand of the LORD will rest on this mountain.
