Signs in the heavens
This morning we were able to witness a lunar eclipse, a blood moon. What a site! Many see these changes as signs of the end days. They may be, but I fear we are looking in the wrong place to see what is ahead.
The bible is clear to reveal, in amazing detail, the events ahead of us. No other book, no other literature speaks of future history as if it were already done, but the bible does. All through the text prophets tell of coming events and they came true, just as told. One of the great prophets of the Old Testament was Daniel, a man dearly loved by God. In his book, in chapter 11, he gives amazing detail of the complete history of the human race....right to the end.
The heavens declare the glory of God, but the bible declares the plans of God. One tells us there is a God, the other tells us what that God is up to. Once we see his grand plans and amazing love for our little species it displaces fear and gives us hope.
Do the signs in the heavens mean anything? Maybe, but I have a much clearer picture of the days ahead and at the end of it all...when everything is finished...God wins and is ultimately worshiped by every man, woman, boy and girl who has ever lived.
Now that's a happy ending!
