Second Coming

When Jesus Christ

Rose from the dead

He took his body with him

 

So when he appears

A second time

His body

Who is his Spirit

Will appear with him

For they are one

 

Where he is I am

He is risen

 

Colossians 3:4

“When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall you also appear with him in glory.”

Adversary

Art: Virgin Mary, artist unknown

Every story has a hero or heroine

And an adversary

And the story is written

Within a time and a place

 

And the story line is such that

Said hero or heroine

Must overcome the adversary

To save the world

 

Or maybe the story is such that

The hero must overcome

The adversary

To save the heroine

 

The Bible is such a story

The hero is Jesus Christ

And he came to save the world

To set us free from sin

The adversary

 

David slew Goliath with a stone

Daniel survived the lion’s den

And Christ overcame the world

 

We are either the hero

Or the adversary

 

If Christ is with us

Who can be against us

 

I John 4:5

“…because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”

 

Mother of All Living

Art: Formation of Eve by Ed Suominen

And all that God made was good

Except it was not good that man be alone

So God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man

 

And took from him a rib

And fashioned from that rib a woman

 

How long did that take

To prepare a wife for his creation

How long was his creation asleep

 

He slept until the woman

Was brought to him

To be his wife

Then everything was good

 

It is like Christ and his bride

That which has been prepared for him

A house in which all his children live

The mother of all living
