The heavens declare the glory of God; And the sky shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, And night unto night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard. Their line has gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them He has set a tabernacle for the sun, Which is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, And rejoices like a strong man to run its race.
But to you who fear My name The Sun of Righteousness shall arise With healing in His wings;…
Perhaps no one will understand, or even think we’ve lost our minds, but yesterday, February twenty six two thousand and fifteen, on a cool and crisp Kenyan morning, the sunrise spoke to us of the return of Christ.
We want to share this experience with you, through these pictures we took, over a span of just under thirty minutes. It is not our intention for this to be taken as some visionary statement or eschatology prophesy. It was just a love note from our Heavenly Father, to some people who revere Him and are looking for His Son’s return. Take it however you will. So… here goes!
This morning James and I had to drive out to Solid Rock Christian Community to bring some supplies and breakfast fixings, to our beloved brothers who are working on our land.
James’s children, Caleb and Blessed, and Jeroge’s son, Chege (who also happen to be some of my favorite Kenyan grandchildren) were out of school, so we took them along. We were up and moving at six A.M. and arrived on our land just before sunrise and… well…. experienced something spiritual.
When we arrived at the work site, we were surprised at how cool it was. It had to be at least fifteen degrees cooler at the higher elevation than where we live in Ponda Mali. Our apartment is only fifteen minutes away. Although there was enough light to see, everything seemed to be so cold…
Then, suddenly… something wonderful began to happen to the sky. Now you may say this wonderful event happens every morning, but on this day, we sensed this sunrise would be different. Something spiritual was about to happen.
All the light coming from the sun, that hadn’t risen yet, began to form a huge mass and was rising in the sky. It looked like what I would envision, the ‘spirit of the sun’ to be. It very much reminded us of the Holy Spirit.
At this heavenly sign, all the creatures in heaven begin to move.
Then this mass of light exploded into a brightness that filled the sky.
Slowly the mass of light began to descend and unite with the rising sun.
When this incredible brightness touched the horizon … the sun arose! For us… it seemed to show the heavenly Bridegroom coming out of His chamber made ready for His Bride.He who wore the crown of thorns returns for His Bride to rule the earth … crowned with the Holy Spirit.
Almost immediately, everything on the earth turned red … as if the whole world was being bathed in His blood.
Then golden light returned color to the earth.
Earth bound creatures, created to dwell in the heavens, began warming themselves in His light, and once again, took to the heavens.
Then everything began to fly in different directions, as if racing to the four corners of the earth.
Warmth again filled the earth …
We stood there gazing into the heavens, utterly amazed, and filled with His joy.
And the sons and daughters of men rejoiced…Our children were touched…
Then … as all good days should begin … the sons and daughters of God and men… started their work…rebuilding the ancient ruins. (Isaiah 58:12)
Jerusalem (the city of the great King) … She shall be inhabited!
Who confirms the word of His servant, And performs the counsel of His messengers; Who says to Jerusalem, ‘You shall be inhabited,’ To the cities of Judah, ‘You shall be built,’ And I will raise up her waste places;
So … there you have it. We believe the heavens spoke to our hearts. He is coming… but first… there will be a sign in the heavens… an outpouring of His Spirit enabling all who are looking for His return… to finally become who they were created to be.
Press on Beloved … the Spirit and Bridegroom come!
