Our beautiful headdress

In ancient Israel, the people put ashes on their heads while mourning. Then, God’s Spirit empowered the Messiah, bringing good news for mankind. We now have the opportunity to exchange mourning and sorrow for hope and fruitful living. What headdress is appropriate for those who have had their broken hearts healed? I believe it’s the tongues of fire that accompanied the believers of the early church- to the praise of His glory. Christ ascended so that He would be manifest many times over through the Holy Spirit (see Col 1:27)#Christinusthehopeofglory- Teresa

 Isaiah 61: 1-3 (ESV)

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me,

    because the Lord has anointed me

to bring good news to the poor;[e]

    he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,

to proclaim liberty to the captives,

    and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;[f]

2 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor,

    and the day of vengeance of our God;

    to comfort all who mourn;

3 to grant to those who mourn in Zion—

    to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes,

the oil of gladness instead of mourning,

    the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit;

that they may be called oaks of righteousness,

    the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified.[g]
