Speaking of rainbows and resurrection

April 5, 2013 — Leave a comment

Lift eyes from mud. Look up for rainbows, brilliant and glorious
Reflected by a well-washed and shining prism: saintly faith turned toward the light of truth.
Set your focus on things above, not on earthly things
Gaze on the Throne where darkness never dwells, to the King whose rule is Love
To His right side, where the Redeemer Son intercedes to purify the Beloved Bride.

If there’s no resurrection, there’s no living Christ, then all you’re doing is wandering about in the dark, as lost as ever. …if all we get out of Christ is a little inspiration for a few short years, we’re a pretty sorry lot.

I look death in the face practically every day I live. Do you think I’d do this if I wasn’t convinced of your resurrection and mine as guaranteed by the resurrected Messiah Jesus? ……It’s resurrection, resurrection, always resurrection, that undergirds what I do and say, the way I live.

I Corinthians 15 :13, 16, 30-32 The Message

Now the holy rays of the light of Christ shine forth,
the pure stars of the pure Spirit rise, the heavenly treasures of glory and divinity lie open.
In this splendor the long dark night has been swallowed up and the dreary shadows of death have vanished.
For us who believe in Him a glorious day has dawned, a long unending day.

Hippolytus of Rome
