from this time forth and forevermore!
From the rising of the sun to its setting,
the name of the Lord is to be praised!”
“No longer will there be anything accursed, but the throne of God and of the Lamb
will be in it, and his servants will worship him.
They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads.
And night will be no more.
They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light,
and they will reign forever and ever.”
…I read this verse from Revelations, and all that I can do is close my eyes. Even with many deep breaths and eyes closed with quiet expectation of the joy to come, I still cannot fathom this: complete light from the presence of God.
Can you imagine this? His glory being so great that it illuminates every crack and cranny of this earth. Not merely the flickering of an eternal candle, no, His Light will shatter the darkness even out of oblivion; it won’t even exist.
How amazing this day will be… the day when we will dwell with our Heavenly Father purely by His glorious presence…
