    Much is being made of Wednesday, January 6, 2021. Three important events will happen on that day.

    Many if not most are aware this is the day the results of the run-off election for the two Senate seats in the state of Georgia will be announced. The winners of those two seats will put control of the United States Senate in the hands of one party or the other.

    Many are becoming aware that also on January 6 the official ballots of the Electoral College will be delivered physically to the Congress. At midday according to federal law, the Congress in joint session will hear the College votes of each state. Apparently it takes just one Representative and one Senator to contest the Electoral results. In such a case, two hours are dedicated to hearing a presentation of evidence as to why the national election results may be overruled by the two Houses of the Congress. What happens next is best described simply as fireworks.Least known is the third and most important significance of January 6. January 6 on the Christian Church calendar is Epiphany. Epiphany comes every year on this date, twelve days after Christmas. (Right, thus named the Twelve Days of Christmas.) Epiphany means appearance or manifestation and it signifies the visit of the Wise Men or Magi to worship the Christ child, Jesus. According to the Bible record, this visit is the first time the Son of God is manifested to Gentiles (non-Jews) and they are welcomed into the presence of the Messiah. So it is that Epiphany has been a significant day of celebration for centuries. (The term “Twelve Days of Christmas” is not to be taken as indication the Magi arrived 12 days after the birth of Jesus Christ. It signifies the festival time period between the two holydays.)

    Our prayer in these days as we move through Christmas, New Year’s Day, and Epiphany is that the identity of Jesus will be revealed in our land especially on January 6, manifesting to all the great goodness of God!
