The world would stand as it was. Beautiful and wanting. Decaying under the penalty of the snatched power it had thought it carried. The world, everything in it, needed the Word at that moment...so it waited.
Thoughts and questions ring out generation after generation. Were the Words true? When He spoke were they all true? Will the Word ever become flesh? Who will save us if the Words aren't true?
Words, it was all words. Just talk. Here Say. Years pass. People forget. Broken lives happen.
Words lost then found. Words fought over, and rejected. Words heard and forgotten.
It was the Word that could change the world, unless the Words weren't true,
The world waits for a Savior.
"So, you, by the help of your God,
return, hold fast to love and justice,
and wait continually for your God."
