I’ve finished my video series on John’s Revelation. While not much attention has been attracted, I finally found words to explain the gift that I bring into the world. Maybe they’ll help others to receive my love simply, just as I offer it.
So here it is:
Consummation – Revelation 21 and 22: Christ and his Bride unite the masculine and feminine virtues, and present to us the undying gift of the water of life.
I’ve been attending a Bible study group in Camarillo for a few months. Bishop Sammie, the facilitator – hearing that I have been working on a video series on Revelation – asked me to lead the study one night. I told him that I wanted to teach Genesis 1:1-3, sharing the scientist’s perspective that causes me to be so awed by God’s commitment to us.
So I did that last night, pulling in John 1:1 and Luke 10:27 and Genesis 2:7 to make the point that God yearned so much to see love expressed that He put three billion years into evolution until a creature arose that He could breath His love into.
That’s how important we are to him.
The group was really appreciative. At the close, Bishop Sammie asked us to each tell what we were going to take away from the study tonight, and I got to say:
I don’t know how long I’ve been study things in science that I thought no way no how would I ever be able to explain them to people. But tonight I was able to share that knowledge in a way that really spoke to people. I am so grateful.
Next week will be the final episode out at Love Returns – which will turn at last to the experience of a world united by Love, rather than divided by
Selfishness. But for now, the final stage in the treatment of our disease:
Revelation 18 elaborates the defect of our culture of sexual immorality: it cheapens our relationships, and so leads us to prefer property to people.
In Revelation 17, John is shown how corrupt women organize spirit to prevent love from entering the world.
Beauty and the Beast
It’s a little depressing.
