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.”
