One Light in a Million

Isaiah 40:26 New International Version (NIV)

26 Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens:
    Who created all these?
He who brings out the starry host one by one
    and calls forth each of them by name.
Because of his great power and mighty strength,
    not one of them is missing.

I'm pretty sure there's no one in America who doesn't know a solar eclipse is coming tomorrow.  I won't be looking, though, because I don't have the glasses!  That's okay, I'm sure I'll see the coverage of it.  I wonder what God thinks of all the excitement over one star in his creation.   I pray that we will be considering the Creator tomorrow as well as his creation.  Dominion and awe belong to Him.

He Will Return

Luke 21:34-36 New English Translation (NET Bible)

Be Ready!
34 “But be on your guard so that your hearts are not weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of this life, and that day close down upon you suddenly like a trap. 35 For it will overtake all who live on the face of the whole earth. 36 But stay alert at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that must happen, and to stand before the Son of Man.”

Revelation 19:6-9 English Standard Version (ESV)

The Marriage Supper of the Lamb
6 Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the roar of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, crying out,

“Hallelujah!
For the Lord our God
    the Almighty reigns.
7 Let us rejoice and exult
    and give him the glory,
for the marriage of the Lamb has come,
    and his Bride has made herself ready;
8 it was granted her to clothe herself
    with fine linen, bright and pure”—
for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints.

9 And the angel said[a] to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are the true words of God.”

What will be left on earth after Christ calls His Bride, the church, to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb?  That thought was the inspiration for my latest Youtube upload.  Christ will return.  Are you ready?
