“Like many words that evolve in meaning through time and use, the word epiphany has come to mean more than the holiday it represents on January 6. Merriam-Webster offers an array of uses: an appearance or manifestation especially of a divine being, a sudden perception of the essential nature or meaning of something, an intuitive grasp of reality through something usually simple and striking, an illuminating discovery, realization, or disclosure, or a revealing scene or moment. Each of these definitions carries with it similar qualities—namely, vision and introspect, reality and awakening. As one who loves words, I like to think that all epiphany is inspired by the first Epiphany, when the Word became flesh and defined for us the meaning of vision, reality, meaning, and wakefulness.” – Jill Carattini, Ravi Zacharias International Ministries
And having been warned by God in a dream not to return to Herod, the magi left for their own country by another way. – Matt 2:12
He will make a way for us – there is always another route.
