Light of the World


Jesus spoke to the people and said,
“I am the light of the world.
Whoever follows Me will never walk in the darkness,
but will have the light of life.”

John 8:12


Thy word is a lamp unto my feet,
and a light unto my path.

Psalm 119:105


I awoke with this song in my head and especially these words:

Light of the world, You stepped down into darkness
Opened my eyes, let me see
Beauty that made this heart adore You
Hope of a life spent with You

Here I am to Worship - Chris Tomlin


Reflecting on the light of God’s word today…

Genesis 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
Genesis 1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
Genesis 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.



And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not;
I will lead them in paths that they have not known:
I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight.
These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.

Isaiah 42:16


They are of those that rebel against the light;
they know not the ways thereof, nor abide in the paths thereof.
Job 24:13


Another song...
Light of the World by Matt Redman - Lyric Video

 I, the Lord, have called you to do what is right.
    I will take hold of your hand.
    I will protect you.
    I will appoint you as my promise to the people,
        as my light to the nations.

Isaiah 42:6



And Yeshua spoke again with them and he said:
“I AM THE LIVING GOD, The Light of the world.
Whoever follows me shall not walk in darkness but shall find the light of life.”

John 8:12



The splendor of a King,
clothed in majesty
Let all the earth rejoice,
all the earth rejoice
He wraps himself in light,
and darkness tries to hide
it trembles at his voice,

Chris Tomlin - How Great is Our God (Live)

Workday Prayer


And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: 
for ye serve the Lord Christ.

Colossians 3:23-24



Workday Prayer
- Unknown?

Lord Jesus, as I enter this workplace,
I bring Your presence with me.
I speak Your peace, Your grace, and Your perfect order into the atmosphere of this office.
I acknowledge Your Lordship over all that will be spoken, thought, decided and accomplished within these walls.

Lord Jesus, I thank You for the gifts You have deposited in me.
I do not take them lightly, but commit to using them responsibly and well.
Give me a fresh supply of truth and beauty on which to draw as I do my job.

Anoint my creativity, my ideas, my energy so that even my smallest task may bring You honor.
Lord, when I am confused, guide me. When I am weary, energize me.
Lord, when I am burned out, infuse me with the light of Your Holy Spirit.

May the work that I do and the way I do it bring hope, life, and courage to all that I come in contact with today.
And, oh Lord, even in this day's most stressful moment, may I rest in You.
In the name of Jesus my savior I pray. 
Amen.




As a new school year begins and jobs resume or continue
...whether at home or work place remember who is your true boss. 



Let your light so shine before men, 
that they may see your good works, 
and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Matthew 5:16 





I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, 
and thy patience, and thy works; 
and the last to be more than the first.
Revelation 2:19

America’s Eclipse


And it shall come to pass in that day,
saith the Lord God, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon,
and I will darken the earth in the clear day:

Amos 8:9

Although this Total Solar Eclipse will only be seen in North America, there are convergences of events that are far-reaching.  From the sunset in Jerusalem to the heavenly alignment of stars, planets, and constellations.

Timing of the eclipse in Salem, Oregon (first state to see the event) to the sunset in Jerusalem.
10:17 AM  PDT  *  17:16 UT  * 7:16 PM IDT
Salem - Maximum Magnitude  * Jerusalem - Sunset


I find the time – 10:20 interesting on this meme!
Same time as the eclipse in Salem, Oregon!

Watch ye therefore: 
for ye know not when the master of the house cometh,
at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:
Mark 13:35
Numerous times Jesus admonished his followers to “watch and pray.”


I shared previously some Jerusalem/Salem similarities in my 
“When Doves Cry” blog.


On August 9 and 10 we experienced a rare red “blood” moon due to smoke from area wildfires. This occurred 3 days after the full moon and 11 days before the eclipse that will pass over Oregon first. I shared some photos that I took during the evening and recollections of the 2015 Blood Moon Tetrad. 

For all of us who live in the path of totally, the past year has been abuzz with talk of this great “once in a lifetime” event for our city and state – and nation.  Now, as the time grows near we are more focused on this upcoming experience and are learning more about the details.

The following verse resonates as we need to wear dark glasses to see this amazing covering of the sun. With the special viewing filters you see absolutely NOTHING – TOTAL DARKNESS without the sun shining. Yet, with the bright sun one can see the orb’s image.


For now we see through a glass, darkly;
but then face to face: now I know in part;
but then shall I know even as also I am known.

1 Corinthians 13:12


The verifiable facts that the eclipse begins in the 33rd state (Oregon) – the state flag has 33 stars - and ends precisely at the 33rd parallel (South Carolina).  A total solar eclipse traversing the entire United States hasn't happened in 3 x 33 years and even more - the eclipse occurs exactly 33 days before the Revelation 12 Sign

The Salem connections don’t stop in Oregon! There are SEVEN cities named Salem noted on the eclipse path of totality.  In addition, there is Salem Road in Makanda, Illinois (south of Carbondale, IL).  
An excellent graphic at



This celestial phenomenon comes at an extremely interesting time in world history. Rare conjunctions of celestial convergences of alignments in the sky add to the mystery.  

Simultaneous Convergences:
  • Physical (as shown above)
  • Ideological
  • Celestial
  • Spiritual


The eclipse cuts across the mid-section of the USA at the same time events are occurring in our nation to divide our people politically and ideologically.  The Daily Crow covers this in detail with many merging fragments. http://www.dailycrow.com/united-we-stand-divided-we-fall/

If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand.
Mark 3:24-25

Known as “The Great American Eclipse” it will be the most viewed eclipse in history and it has certainly carried with it the most speculation. On August 21st a 70 mile wide shadow of darkness will slice the nation in half. This should be pretty straight forward even for those of you who don’t much care for the language of metaphor. This is the first total eclipse exclusive to the United States since the nation’s inception that extends from coast to coast. 


Much has been documented about the unusual connections with this eclipse which coupled with multitude of events gains alerted foresight with biblical understanding.

And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day,
and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
Genesis 1:16

In addition to the eclipse and new moon there is a “black moon.”

August 21 Solar Eclipse - Fascinating Facts

If you are in the path of the Aug. 21st eclipse, 
you will see planets during totality!
The gem is Mercury, which is bright, but rarely seen!


Attention now is focused at the heart of the Lion of Judah and Regulus the king star.
  




Even the media is joining in with the wedding theme at this eclipse time.

Wedding - Samsung Galaxy S8: Eclipse



And at midnight there was a cry made,
Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
Matthew 25:6


The eclipse happens at the transition of Hebrew months Av and Elul (5th and 6th of the year).  From the month of “hearing” to the month of “harvest.”

Elul (6th month) begins after sighting of the new moon. http://torahcalendar.com

 I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine:
 Song of Solomon 6:3


  

The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” Let the one who hears say,
“Come!” And let the one who is thirsty come,
and the one who desires the water of life drink freely.
Revelation 22:17

So, 33 days before September's The Great Sign is another sign that is a possible confirming witness to the legitimacy of The Great Sign.  The eclipse occurs in conjunction with Regulus, which is a key part of the astronomical alignment on September 23, 2017 - so the eclipse will actually be drawing the eyes of the world to the exact area in the sky where the Revelation 12 Sign will occur.
