“You can’t get through a single day with out having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of a difference you want to make,” Jane Goodall.
The kind of difference we make is best accomplished as follows, “While we do not look at things which are seen, but at things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal; “Have I not told commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” (cp. Joshua 4:18; 2 Corinthians 4:18).
So then, we can all become difference makers. Help comes from the unseen called Divine Providence. Diverse, and always unique, especially tailored for the Christ follower.
Around two days ago (cp. 2 Peter 3:8), John saw seven golden lampstands and in the midst of the seven lampstands stood Jesus, referred to as the Son of Man.
Clothed uniquely, and characterized as One whom one should avoid getting on His bad side.
John also saw seven stars held high in His right hand. Seeing what could be the militarization of a combat tested ready deity. His complete demeanor was frightful emitting an aurora of one to be feared. All this to much for John scared for his life, he fell at His feet as dead.
Unexpectedly, He placed Right hand on John’s shoulder and said to him, “Don’t be afraid, I am the First and the Last. I am He who lives, and was dead. And behold I am alive forever more, Amen!” “And I have the keys to Hades (hell) and of death!” (cp. Revelation 1:12-18).
Jesus expanding upon the seven stars, and the seven golden lampstands declared, “The mystery of the seven stars which you saw, and the seven golden lampstands. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the lampstands which you saw are the seven churches.” (cp. Revelation 1:20)
Verse 13 informes us that the one in the midst of the lampstands was Jesus Christ flanked by angels, v. 20.
That was then, so what about the now? Ephesians 1:22, tells us that God appointed Jesus to be the head of the church (you and me). Which is the fullness of Him (the Father) who satisfies all in one.
Some things are timeless, so lets take a journey back in history to the Chronicles where we have this recorded, “The eyes of the LORD run to and fro through out the whole earth, to show Himself strong in behalf of those heart is loyal to Him.”
We know that those stars are symbolic to angels often used by God to serve His interest like you and me. So this is recorded for us, “Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister to those who will inherit salvation?” (cp. Hebrews 1:14).
For He shall give His angels charge over you. To keep you in all your ways. They shall bear you up with their hands. Lest you dash your foot against a stone.” (cp. Psalms 91:11-12).
Experience is a great teacher, and this Padre, can attest to having had multiple angelic experiences. Remember that angles are His ambassadors sent to aid us as necessary. They are not to be worshiped because worship is reserves only for our Creator and Redeemer.
Not one of us? Join our Christ family by following the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. And then notice verses 11-13, as they create the universality so many seek. And if our paths don’t meet in this world, they will in the next.
This Padre duly ordained, and also having a degree in political science. Is available to address the broad spectrum of organized secular groups within our communities. Right through to the many denominational churches doting the American landscape.
