Another "I GET IT" Moment...

I was reading a passage from the last book of the Bible, the Book of the Revelation.  Chapter 1, verse 15, John describes the One he saw in this revelation.  The verse states "His feet were like fine brass, as if refined in a furnace, and His voice as the sound of many waters;"  I find it interesting that John's revelation was not just visual, but had full audio too!  

I immediately remembered back to a trip years ago to Ft. Worth, TX.  They have this marvelous fountain downtown that starts at street level and you walk down a path that takes you deeper and deeper into a 360 degree cascade!  As you start out you hear some water trickling along with the normal sounds of a downtown city.  The deeper you walk into the fountain, the less you hear of the city and the more the water's sound begins to grow.  By the time you've reached the bottom, all you can hear is the water!  It was hard for us to even talk.
This verse speaks of Jesus' voice as One with majesty and great power!  Dr. Adrian Rogers said the voice of Jesus was like Niagara Falls.  Can you imagine trying to argue with Niagara Falls? There will be no talking back to the regal, majestic and all-powerful Christ!

I stayed at the base of the fountain in Ft. Worth, TX for about an hour...just listening.  In heaven, I imagine that's what we'll do too.  Just stand in silence, listening to the majestic and powerful voice of our Savior, Jesus Christ!

Well, that's all for now, but check back soon for another installment of REDD-INK!

File this under, "NOW I GET IT!"

You know those times when the light bulb in your head goes off and you finally understand something?

It happens to me from time-to-time...probably not as often as I'd like it to!  Anyway, today as I was reading my Bible, some things that Adrian Rogers said years ago came back to me!

I was reading about the wrath and judgment of God on sin and sinful mankind.  He was explaining about how the devout Jews of the Old Testament would bring a spotless lamb to the priest.  The lamb would be sacrificed on the altar as a sin offering...God would accept the blood of a spotless lamb offered to take away their sin.  Then came the 'light bulb' moment.  I remembered what Pastor Rogers said.  It was something like this, "The fires of God's judgment would burn out on the sacrifices made on the altar."

For the believer in Jesus Christ, we have this blessed gift:  The fire of God's judgment is burned out on the altar of Jesus' sacrifice.  Think about what that One, Precious, All-sufficient sacrifice has offered to those who will trust in Him.

Did your 'light bulb' come on?  Then join me in praising, thanking and worshiping Jesus Christ, our Savior!

That's all for now, but check back soon for more REDD-INK!
