Gaudete (Advent 3)
Explanation of the Week
The voice of the Baptizer cried out in the wilderness: "Prepare the way of the Lord . . ." (Is 40:1-8). John called the people to be made ready for the Messiah's coming through repentance, for "all flesh is grass." Now He asks from prison, "Are you the Coming One?" (Mt 11:2-10) Jesus' works bear witness that He is. The sick are made well; the dead are raised, and the poor have the gospel preached to them. Their iniquity is pardoned; they have received from the Lord's hand double forgiveness for all their sins. The stewards of the mysteries of God (1 Cor 4:1-5) still deliver Christ's overflowing forgiveness to the poor in spirit, comforting God's people with the word of the Gospel which stands forever. This Gospel produces rejoicing among those who believe. For in it, "the Lord is at hand" (Introit).
Rejoice in the Lord | always.*
Again will I | say, rejoice!
Let your gentleness be known to | all men.*
The Lord | is at hand. (Philippians 4:4-5)
LORD, You have been favourable | to Your land;*
You have brought back the captivity of | Jacob.
You have forgiven the iniquity of Your | people;*
You have covered | all their sin.
Will You not revive | us again,*
that Your people may re- | joice in You?
I will hear what God the | Lord will speak,*
for He will speak peace to His | people. (Psalm 85:1-2, 6, 8)
Lord Jesus Christ, we implore You to hear our prayers and to lighten the darkness of our hearts by Your gracious visitation; for You live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
Lord, we beseech Thee, give ear to our prayers and lighten the darkness of our hearts by Thy gracious visitation; who livest and reignest with Thee and the Holy Ghost ever one god, world without end. Amen.
Aurem tuam quaesumus Domine precibus nostris accommoda, et menti nostrae tenebras gratia tuae visitationis illustra, Per Dominum nostrum Jesum Christum filium tuum, qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitate Spiritus sancti Deus. Per omnia secula seculorum, Amen.
Old Testament (LSB): Isaiah 40:1-11
The Greatness of God
1"(A)Comfort, O comfort My people," says your God. Cross references:
2"(B)Speak kindly to Jerusalem;
And call out to her, that her (C)warfare has ended,
That her (D)iniquity has been removed,
That she has received of the LORD'S hand
(E)Double for all her sins."
3(F)A voice is calling,
"(G)Clear the way for the LORD in the wilderness;
Make smooth in the desert a highway for our God.
4"Let every valley be lifted up,
And every mountain and hill be made low;
And let the rough ground become a plain,
And the rugged terrain a broad valley;
5Then the (H)glory of the LORD will be revealed,
And (I)all flesh will see it together;
For the (J)mouth of the LORD has spoken."
6A voice says, "Call out."
Then he answered, "What shall I call out?"
(K)All flesh is grass, and all its loveliness is like the flower of the field.
7The (L)grass withers, the flower fades,
When the (M)breath of the LORD blows upon it;
Surely the people are grass.
8The grass withers, the flower fades,
But (N)the word of our God stands forever.
9Get yourself up on a (O)high mountain,
O Zion, bearer of (P)good news,
Lift up your voice mightily,
O Jerusalem, bearer of good news;
Lift it up, do not fear
Say to the (Q)cities of Judah,
"(R)Here is your God!"
10Behold, the Lord GOD will come (S)with might,
With His (T)arm ruling for Him
Behold, His (U)reward is with Him
And His recompense before Him.
11Like a shepherd He will (V)tend His flock,
In His arm He will gather the lambs
And carry them in His bosom;
He will gently lead the nursing ewes.

1"(A)Behold, I am going to send (B)My messenger, and he will (C)clear the way before Me And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple; and the (D)messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight, behold, He is coming," says the LORD of hosts.
2"But who can (E)
endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a (F)
refiner's fire and like fullers' soap.
3"He will sit as a smelter and purifier of silver, and He will (G)
purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and silver, so that they may (H)
present to the LORD offerings in righteousness.
4"Then the offering of Judah and Jerusalem will be (I)
pleasing to the LORD as in the (J)
days of old and as in former years.
5"Then I will draw near to you for judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the (K)
sorcerers and against the (L)
adulterers and against those who (M)
swear falsely, and against those who oppress the (N)
wage earner in his wages, the (O)
widow and the orphan, and those who turn aside the (P)
alien and do not fear Me," says the LORD of hosts.
6"For I, the LORD, (Q)
do not change; therefore you, O sons of Jacob, are not consumed. Cross references:

Servants of Christ
1Let a man regard us in this manner, as (A)servants of Christ and (B)stewards of (C)the mysteries of God.
2In this case, moreover, it is required of stewards that one be found trustworthy.
3But to me it is a very small thing that I may be examined by you, or by any human court; in fact, I do not even examine myself.
4For I (D)
am conscious of nothing against myself, yet I am not by this (E)
acquitted; but the one who examines me is the Lord.
do not go on passing judgment before [a]
the time, but wait (G)
until the Lord comes who will both (H)
bring to light the things hidden in the darkness and disclose the motives of men's hearts; and then each man's (I)
praise will come to him from God. Footnotes:

Now when (B)
John, while imprisoned, heard of the works of Christ, he sent word by his disciples
3and said to Him, "Are You (C)
the Expected One, or shall we look for someone else?"
4Jesus answered and said to them, "Go and report to John what you hear and see:
the BLIND RECEIVE SIGHT and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the (E)
POOR HAVE THE GOSPEL PREACHED TO THEM.
6"And blessed is he who (F)
does not take offense at Me."
Jesus' Tribute to John
7As these men were going away, Jesus began to speak to the crowds about John, "What did you go out into (G)
the wilderness to see? A reed shaken by the wind?
8"But what did you go out to see? A man dressed in soft clothing? Those who wear soft clothing are in kings' palaces!
9"But what did you go out to see? (H)
A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and one who is more than a prophet.
10"This is the one about whom it is written,
BEHOLD, I SEND MY MESSENGER AHEAD OF YOU,
WHO WILL PREPARE YOUR WAY BEFORE YOU.' Cross references:

For You alone, O LORD, make me to (V)dwell in safety.

The Glorious Future 1
Behold, a (A)
king will reign righteously
And princes will rule justly. 2
Each will be like a (B)
refuge from the wind
And a shelter from the storm,
streams of water in a dry country,
Like the (D)
shade of a huge rock in a parched land. 3
the eyes of those who see will not be blinded,
And the ears of those who hear will listen. 4
The mind of the (F)
hasty will discern the truth,
And the tongue of the stammerers will hasten to speak clearly. 5
No longer will the (G)
fool be called noble,
Or the rogue be spoken of as generous. 6
For a fool speaks nonsense,
And his heart (H)
inclines toward wickedness:
To practice (I)
ungodliness and to speak error against the LORD,
keep the hungry person unsatisfied
And to withhold drink from the thirsty. 7
As for a rogue, his weapons are evil;
devises wicked schemes
destroy the afflicted with slander, (M)
Even though the needy one speaks what is right. 8
the noble man devises noble plans;
And by noble plans he stands. 9
Rise up, you (O)
women who are at ease,
And hear my voice; (P)
Give ear to my word,
You complacent daughters. 10
Within a year and a few days
You will be troubled, O complacent daughters; (Q)
For the vintage is ended,
And the fruit gathering will not come. 11
Tremble, you women who are at ease; (R)
Be troubled, you complacent daughters; (S)
Strip, undress and put sackcloth on your waist, 12(T)
Beat your breasts for the pleasant fields, for the fruitful vine, 13(U)
For the land of my people in which thorns and briars shall come up;
Yea, for all the joyful houses and for the (V)
jubilant city. 14
the palace has been abandoned, the populated (X)
Hill and watch-tower have become (Y)
A delight for (Z)
wild donkeys, a pasture for flocks; 15
Until the (AA)
Spirit is poured out upon us from on high,
And the wilderness becomes a (AB)
And the fertile field is considered as a forest. 16
justice will dwell in the wilderness
And righteousness will abide in the fertile field. 17
And the (AD)
work of righteousness will be peace,
And the service of righteousness, (AE)
quietness and confidence forever. 18
Then my people will live in a (AF)
And in secure dwellings and in undisturbed (AG)
resting places; 19
And it will (AH)
hail when the (AI)
forest comes down,
the city will be utterly laid low. 20
blessed will you be, you who sow beside all waters,
Who let out freely the ox and the donkey. Cross references:

Scene in Heaven 1
these things I looked, and behold, (B)
a door standing open in heaven, and the first voice which I had heard, (C)
like the sound of a trumpet speaking with me, said, "(D)
Come up here, and I will (E)
show you what must take place after these things." 2
Immediately I was [a](F)
in the Spirit; and behold, (G)
a throne was standing in heaven, and (H)
One sitting on the throne. 3
And He who was sitting was like a (I)
jasper stone and a (J)
sardius in appearance; and there was a (K)
rainbow around the throne, like an (L)
emerald in appearance. 4(M)
Around the throne were (N)
twenty-four thrones; and upon the thrones I saw (O)
twenty-four elders (P)
sitting, clothed in (Q)
white garments, and (R)
golden crowns on their heads.
The Throne and Worship of the Creator 5
Out from the throne come (S)
flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder And there were (T)
seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are (U)
the seven Spirits of God; 6
and before the throne there was something like a (V)
sea of glass, like crystal; and in the center and (W)
around the throne, (X)
four living creatures (Y)
full of eyes in front and behind. 7(Z)
The first creature was like a lion, and the second creature like a calf, and the third creature had a face like that of a man, and the fourth creature was like a flying eagle. 8
And the (AA)
four living creatures, each one of them having (AB)
six wings, are (AC)
full of eyes around and within; and (AD)
day and night they do not cease to say, "(AE)
HOLY, HOLY, HOLY is THE (AF)
LORD GOD, THE ALMIGHTY, (AG)
WHO WAS AND WHO IS AND WHO IS TO COME." 9
And when the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who (AH)
sits on the throne, to (AI)
Him who lives forever and ever, 10
twenty-four elders will (AK)
fall down before Him who (AL)
sits on the throne, and will worship (AM)
Him who lives forever and ever, and will cast their (AN)
crowns before the throne, saying, 11
Worthy are You, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power; for You (AP)
created all things, and because of Your will they existed, and were created." Footnotes:
