Mungu Ngao Yetu ~ Danu Takatifu ya Yesu

The Spirit of the promise

Disfigured by sin and death, man remains in the image of God, in the image of the Son, but is deprived of the glory of God, of his likeness. The promise made to Abraham inaugurates the economy of salvation, at the culmination of which the Son himself will assume that image and restore it in the Father's likeness by giving it again its Glory, the Spirit who is "the giver of life.

Against all human hope, God promises descendants to Abraham, as the fruit of faith and of the power of the Holy Spirit. In Abraham's progeny, all the nations of the earth will be blessed. This progeny will be Christ himself, in whom the outpouring of the Holy Spirit will gather into one the children of God who are scattered abroad. God commits himself by his own solemn oath to giving his beloved Son and the promised Holy Spirit . . . [who is] the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it.

In Theophanies and the Law

Theophanies (manifestations of God) light up the way of the promise, from the patriarchs to Moses and from Joshua to the visions that inaugurated the missions of the great prophets. Christian tradition has always recognized that God's Word allowed himself to be seen and heard in these theophanies, in which the cloud of the Holy Spirit both revealed him and concealed him in its shadow. 

This divine pedagogy appears especially in the gift of the Law. God gave the Law as a pedagogue to lead his people towards Christ. But the Law's powerlessness to save man deprived of the divine likeness, along with the growing awareness of sin that it imparts, enkindles a desire for the Holy Spirit. The lamentations of the Psalms bear witness to this.
