I have to say there are times in my life when I become so concerned about defending the Bible that I get distracted from its beautiful message of salvation in Jesus. Knowing God is all powerful & for whom nothing is impossible is only part of the parcel. He has chosen to work with humanity throughout history bringing many sons & daughters to glory to be with Him. In doing so, part of this life is about preparation before the big trip or journey as much as the expectation of the destination. With Christ we will experience rejection as He did, with Christ we shall suffer as he did, with Christ we shall be raised to glory as he was.
In this the Holy Spirit & Scripture helps me recognise what I need & what I don’t. Heavens bumper sticker is not about where we have been but where we are going… a beautiful place, sin is no more & God is there in all His fullness.
But you, Daniel, close up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end. Many will go here and there to increase knowledge.” Daniel 12:4
I came across a photo shoot for a car magazine while doing deliveries in 2011. I asked if I could take a few shots of this old classic. They were happy to oblige but also packing up so I tried to be quick. Much to my surprise was the Bible verse from Dan 12:4 around the rear window although it looks as if at some stage an attempt to cover it has taken place & at another stage been sanded back to reveal the Old Testament prophecy.
