Photo of my black out curtains during the day. April 2014.
It is the weekend we celebrate the Resurrection of the Christ in the year 2014, the year Putin invaded Crimea and annexed it to Russia and US President Obama considered sending ground troops but so far has not. I am home sick or maybe just homesick and, as is frequently the case now, I have been re-reading my Bible in order to be transformed by the renewing of my mind, Romans 12:2. Today’s search began with the words “to be” as in God made Christ to be sin for us…the NASB places emphasis here and so do I. It is in 2 Corinthians 5. Verse 4, NIV 1984, and following states “The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. This passage precedes the one about light shining out of darkness, verse 6. So, perhaps it is that the heavens are showing us the veiling of the mind, the light entering our hearts, which are black holes in themselves if you ask me(!), in order to set us free from that veil of ignorance. Remember that God has recorded in His book that there will be signs in the heavens prior to Christ’s 2nd coming. Praise the Lord!
