GET YOUR MIND AROUND THIS…

Have you ever thought about the vastness of the universe and the unknowable POWER of God… as I was laying in my bed this afternoon, I took the time to be quiet and think about it a little bit… here is what came to me…

As I started thinking about how powerful God is… this calculation began in my mind from previous readings and study, as rays of sunlight entered my bedroom window door and fell upon my body.

The speed of light is 186,000 miles per second…. I started remembering how long it takes a ray of sunlight to leave the sun and reach the earth…. I remembered like I said from previous studies, that it was about 8 minutes… I went on with the calculation to verify my remembrance…186,000 x 60 seconds = 11,160,000 miles per minute….therefore…93,000,000 miles (the distance from earth to the sun) divided by 11,160,000 = 8.33 with the decimal rounded.

So my remembrance was correct, it takes approximately 8.33 minutes for a ray of sun to reach the earth… also from my previous studies, I remember that sunlight is granular, which was a surprise to me… so you must be asking yourself why was I thinking about this manner of things…. and what was I really getting at?…

I started remembering a scripture that I couldn’t recall at that particular moment… the scripture involved God rolling up the heavens….LIKE A SCROLL… and I began thinking about how mysterious and wonderful that action would be… though I couldn’t fathom any understanding of it… it seemed so far beyond my finite mind to begin to comprehend or understand it…so… I found the scripture… it is Isaiah 34:4… and really should be read with Isaiah 34: 1-3…” Come near, you nations, to hear; And heed, you people! Let the earth hear, and all that is in it. The world and all things that come forth from it. For the indignation of the Lord is against all nations, And His fury against all their armies; He has utterly destroyed them, He has given them over to the slaughter. Also their slain shall be thrown out; Their stench shall rise from their corpses.

And the mountains shall be melted with their blood. All the hosts of heaven shall be dissolved. AND THE HEAVENS SHALL BE ROLLED UP LIKE A SCROLL. All their host shall fall down as the leaf falls from the vine. And as fruit falling from a fig tree…( please read the rest of this chapter later)

Also… I began thinking about Revelation 6: 14…” Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place….( again read the rest of this chapter later)

So again why am I thinking about these things?…. because I’ve been thinking about how dull I basically am as a person… how dull & limited my powers of observation really have been and are… I find myself praying alot lately for God to illuminate my mind… I don’t want to be so self-absorbed that I miss what God wants me to see and relay… I believe truly that ‘eye has not seen nor ear heard’ the wonderful things that God has in store for us…. so I find myself trying to slow down to capture some of it…

Isaiah 34 and Revelation 6 are obviously about the judgments from God…. doesn’t sound like a place any human being would want to be…

So my final thoughts in this post are about how powerful and wonderful & beyond human comprehension, God must really be….I think we really have no idea…but I believe we will get to behold His glory eventually…lastly…. some might ask….”Why can’t we see God?”….I would call everyone to remember that Jesus said ‘If you’ve seen me, you’ve seen the Father.’….so try and get your mind around that…isn’t it wonderful to think of God the Father, having and showing the love that Jesus displayed in His life…Sincerely, Frank Payton….visit my blog at littleraventhepoet.blog…
