The Rift


“To all perfection I see a limit, but your commands are boundless.”  (Psalm 119:96)

All of them were right.  Every one of them gave his testimony; with what words they had, they described what they saw.  Chaos exploded before their very eyes.  Reality appeared then vanished.

A car accident, in full view of many witnesses.  Differing statements were taken.  And the question is asked in retrospect, how can so many variations of witness exist?

It is because there is a difference between believing and seeing.  It is because there is a difference between the imagination and true perspective.  When what we believe comes into view, we find we do not have the words to describe it.

For a split second a rift opened between the peace of man and the truth of God.  For a split second the reality of eternity displayed itself before their very eyes:  “If man continues on that destructive path, bodies will be exploded where they live”.

Yes.

The Incarnation of the Word of Life

1 “That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. 2 The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. 3 We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. 4 We write this to make our joy complete.”
