Beholding His Glory

Riverfront Park, Salem. OR

This is a scene from yesterday. We don’t worship the sun, but it is used as a symbol of God. Not only is this His symbol, it is prophecy that His glory will be our light at the appointed time. At our current finite state, it is hard for us to fathom how this is going to be like, but we have a glimpse now just as we cannot for a prolonged period look directly to the sun,

He had in His right hand seven stars, out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword, and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength. 17 And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, “Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last.”

Revelation 1:16-17

“The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light.

Revelation 21:23

Keizer Rapids Park, Keizer, OR

The lamb is its light…

Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; the one who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”

John 8:12

The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

John 1:29

And to those who put their trust in Jesus, here is a promise,

For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
The Lord gives grace and glory;
He withholds no good thing from those who walk with integrity.

Psalm 84:11
