Heaven 34

posted by xscot mcknight

In Revelation, Heaven is the place or world that is acknowledged by the true people of God:
Rev. 5:13 Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, singing,
?To the one seated on the throne and to the Lamb
be blessing and honor and glory and might
forever and ever!?
The Lamb is on the Throne in heaven and earthlings are to acknowledge that Throne.
Rev. 18:1 After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority; and the earth was made bright with his splendor.
These two reference then trade in two ideas: God is in Heaven and God’s Throne is in Heaven, and earthlings are to acknowledge the creator of heaven and earth.

I agree and like Isaiah, a glimpse of this throne room causes one to “become undone.” It also happened to Paul. Is this a form of temporary insanity? See Isaiah 6:1-4.

We should all be insane like Paul. We should all be insane like John. Of course, that leaves us open to being struck blind, being boiled in oil, and being left alone on a desolate island somewhere….

Aye…I recall when Festus told Paul that he had gone mad with much learning! (Acts 26:24) All because Paul believed in the resurrection of the dead!
What an awesomely amazing and fearfully humbling experience that will be to stand before the throne, and before the only one who can truly satisfy!

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Almost Christian 4
Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
