The horizon of eternity

Posted by appolus on February 28, 2011

Man can stand on the top of Everest and see the curvature of the earth and gasp. Men can stand on the moon, look back at the beauty of the earth and gasp. But the man who can stand upon the horizon of eternity and glimpse the majesty and immensity of God, his gasp is the sound of him being ruined for this life. 

Whats amazing is that there is 250,000 miles to the moon. 93 million miles to the sun. There is just under 6 trillion miles in a light year. Apparantly the nearest star in our solar system is Proxima Centuri at just over 4 light years away …which would make it 24 trillion miles away. The furthest known galaxy from here is 14 billion light years away, thats 14 billion times 6 trillion. That makes my head hurt. Point being, and here is the amazing thing, none of that contains God, He contains all of that. And the amazing thing is that this immense God, has deemed to make Himself known to us. Truly amazing. When the Scripture says that eye hath not seen nor ear heard nor has it entered into the hearts of man what God has prepared for those who know Him, then this is totaly mind blowing. Now, in light of this, consider this Scripture……….

That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. (Eph 3:17-19)

So, brothers and sisters, we can know that which passes knowledge and be filled with the fulness of a God who is immense beyond our capability to even imagine. This is no mere theology, no wistful dreamings, this is the reality of the saints. There has been a fragrant army who have walked the earth in the last 2000 years, and everyone of them has stood upon the horizon of eternity and gazed with spiritual eyes wide open at the glory and the majesty of a God that has filled them. They long, with the Apostle Paul, to be with their Lord. It burns at the center of who they are, it consumes them and drives them on down the narrow path of life. Even when they walk through the darkest valleys, even when they are beset with trials and tribulations, even with the weight of their cross bearing down on them, they remember that horizon, that glory, that majesty that immensity, that place where words have no meaning. They lift their eyes to the glory of the Living God and cry out that they are coming home soon, that every trial is counted as rubbish.  ….

Php 3:8But no, rather, I also count all things to be loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord

Let us rejoice in the glory of the living God. Only in His presence can one truly say that all of our afflictions are light in comparison to the eternal weight of Glory that awaits us. Have you stood upon the horizon of eternity? Have you felt the eternal weight of His glory? A Holy heaviness that compels you to your kness and hands involuntarily raise to the heavens. This is His promise.

    And we can add those who mount up on wings like eagles. Soar on saints that wait upon our Lord to listen (in stillness), hear and obey (the action of serving (as a waiter). never to grow weary or faint. “Attached” to be as He is.
