You could’ve waited…

But You couldn’t stand the distance…

You wouldn’t bare the silence anymore

Love broke the fall…

Bridged across to reach us…

You opened Heaven’s door…

‘Cause You couldn’t stand the distance!

You saw the love I needed… 

You ran to where I was waiting…

Your love crossed the canyon between us…

You came to save me!

In Your mercy…

You ran to me…

Your forgiveness embraced me…

It called me by name…

Hallelujah!

You couldn’t stand the distance…

Revelation 22:1-21

Eden Restored

“Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life,

as clear as crystal,

flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb

down the middle of the great street of the city.

On each side of the river stood the tree of life,

bearing twelve crops of fruit,

yielding its fruit every month.

And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. 

No longer will there be any curse.

The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city,

and his servants will serve Him.

They will see His face,

and His name will be on their foreheads.

There will be no more night.

They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun,

for the Lord God will give them light.

And they will reign for ever and ever.”

John and the Angel

“The angel said to me,

‘These words are trustworthy and true.

The Lord, the God who inspires the prophets,

sent His angel to show His servants

the things that must soon take place.’

‘Look, I am coming soon!

Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy written in this scroll.’

I, John,

am the one who heard and saw these things.

And when I had heard and seen them,

I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel

who had been showing them to me.

But he said to me,

‘Don’t do that!

I am a fellow servant with you

and with your fellow prophets

and with all who keep the words of this scroll.

Worship God!’

Then he told me,

‘Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this scroll,

because the time is near.

Let the one who does wrong continue to do wrong;

let the vile person continue to be vile;

let the one who does right continue to do right;

and let the holy person continue to be holy.’

9-8-13 Walk 050

Epilogue: Invitation and Warning

‘Look, I am coming soon!

My reward is with Me,

and I will give to each person

according to what they have done.

I am the Alpha and the Omega,

the First and the Last,

the Beginning and the End. 

Blessed are those who wash their robes,

that they may have the right to the tree of life

and may go through the gates into the city.

Outside are the dogs,

those who practice magic arts,

the sexually immoral,

the murderers,

the idolaters

and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.

 I, Jesus,

have sent My angel to give you this testimony for the churches.

I Am the Root

and the Offspring of David,

and the bright Morning Star.”

The Spirit and the bride say,

‘Come!’

And let the one who hears say,

‘Come!’

Let the one who is thirsty come;

and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life.

I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll:

If anyone adds anything to them,

God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll.

And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy,

God will take away from that person

any share in the tree of life

and in the Holy City,

which are described in this scroll.

He who testifies to these things says,

‘Yes, I Am coming soon.

Amen.

Come, Lord Jesus.

The grace of the Lord Jesus

be with God’s people.

Amen.'”

Exodus 33:12-23

Moses and the Glory of the Lord

Moses said to the Lord,

“You have been telling me,

‘Lead these people,’

but you have not let me know whom You will send with me.

You have said,

‘I know you by name and you have found favor with me.’

If You are pleased with me,

teach me Your ways

so I may know You

and continue to find favor with You.

Remember that this nation is Your people.”

The Lord replied,

“My Presence will go with you,

and I will give you rest.”

Then Moses said to him,

“If Your Presence does not go with us,

do not send us up from here.

How will anyone know that You are pleased with me

and with Your people unless You go with us?

What else will distinguish me and Your people

from all the other people on the face of the earth?”

And the Lord said to Moses,

“I will do the very thing you have asked,

because I am pleased with you

and I know you by name.”

Then Moses said,

“Now show me Your Glory.”

And the Lord said,

“I will cause all My Goodness

to pass in front of you,

and I will proclaim My Name,

The Lord,

in your presence.

I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy,

and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.

But,” He said, “you cannot see My Face,

for no one may see Me and live.”

Then the Lord said,

“There is a place near Me where you may stand on a rock.

When My Glory passes by,

I will put you in a cleft in the rock

and cover you with My Hand until I have passed by.

Then I will remove My Hand

and you will see My Back;

but My Face must not be seen.”

8-24-13 golf course 118

Lord,

We must have Your Presence…

Your Glory in our lives…

You must go with us…

Or we  can’t go!

We can’t live without You!!
