Video post ~ Splendor of the Sun (via NASA and Walter Bright)

I thought this was a very intriguing video recently posted via NASA by Walter Bright on his blogsite “Where Are You . . . Where Are You Going?”

As I was watching, all these metaphors and descriptions of the sun started coming to mind: awe-inspiring, life-giving, light-giving, powerful, radiant so on and so on.

Then a scripture came to mind:

Revelation 21: 23 And the city has no need of sun or moon, for the glory of God illuminates the city, and the Lamb is its light. 24 The nations will walk in its light . . .

A time when there will be “no need of sun or moon”?  I know it doesn’t expressly say that the sun and moon will be done away with (and that is SO not the point), but even if that were so, I find it both comforting and fascinating that the descriptions can remain for He who “illuminates the city” and the One who “is its light”.

Awe-inspiring, Life-giving, Light-giving, Powerful, Radiant . . .

As Walter himself said in his post, “This video captivated my imagination about Jesus, his splendor and radiance. Hope it lights up your soul as well. For truly the sun declares the glory of the King.”



One thought on “Video post ~ Splendor of the Sun (via NASA and Walter Bright)”

  1. Kent—It is always interesting for me to contemplate light. I believe that the light from the sun, moon and
    stars are powered by God’s glory. “Christ is in the sun, and the light of the sun, and the power thereof by
    which it was made; as also he is the light of the moon, and the power thereof by which it was made;
    as also the light of the stars……and the light which shineth…is the same light that quickeneth your
    understandings; which light proceedeth from the presence of God to fill the immensity of space—
    the light which is in all things, which giveth life to all things, which is the law by which all things are
    governed, even the power of God…” (Doctrine & Covenants, Sect 88:7-13)
