Seeing life's events in the light of God's Word.

It Will Be All About Him


Mark 13:26- “At that time people will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory.”















Not too long ago, several Hollywood movie stars were asked what it was about them that they thought caught the attention of audiences.

One said it was her outrageous costumes.

Another said it was her outspokenness.

A third said it was all about her entrances, referring to her most recent one—a drop from a helicopter onto a glittering stage. “Millions of fans watched it,” she gushed.

Jesus had a remarkable, but humble, entrance onto the earth—a baby born in a stable in Bethlehem.

He rode a lowly donkey into Jerusalem prior to his crucifixion.

No, our King didn’t choose accolades, glitter, or glitz.

But, He will come again…with the great Trumpet sound…with voices of a myriad angelic hosts…

It will be all about Him. All eyes will see. Every knee shall bow.

The King of King and Lord of Lords will have our attention—not because of his attire or public relations ploys, but because of who He is—our Savior.

He will abolish evil for all time and eternity and establish His reign of peace and righteousness.

As we celebrate His resurrection,  we also look forward to His coming, again.

Is All That Glitters Really Gold?

Revelation 22:13 and 16b: “I am the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last…I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.”

The young woman at the restaurant flashed her engagement ring to the five other young ladies seated at her table.

“It’s so HUGE! Is it real?” one girl asked.

“I didn’t know Dave had that much money,” another chimed in.

“I’d get it appraised, and then insured. In that order,” offered yet another guest.

In a world full of fake jewels, furs, purses—even flowers—conversations like this are not uncommon. The quest for what is real is an ongoing one. No one wants to be outwitted or fall for a counterfeit, a reproduction, a copy.

We all want the “real deal”, don’t we? We have an aversion to being duped.

So it is with people. We want to know that our friends are really our friends. That they don’t pretend to be our friends to our faces, and then talk about us behind our backs. We want to be able to depend on the fact that they are who they say they are.

The Bible tells us that we can be sure that Jesus is who He claims to be. That He cannot—and does not—ever lie. His Word assures us of who He is and that we can truly depend on Him to do what He says He will do. He keeps His promises. He never fails. He never changes. He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

One day, believers will meet Him in Heaven. We will see Him “face-to-face.”

We are not waiting to see a phony. We are looking forward to seeing our God, our Savior, our Lord. The true and Living Word…in all His Glory…our Bright and Morning Star!
