The earth is an amazing planet. From the aqua waters of Seven Mile Beach in Grand Cayman to the fiery red and burnt orange Smoky Mountains in Autumn. Through a multitude of breath-taking scenes around our globe, we are constantly reminded of our awesome, intelligent Designer.
“In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God and the Word was God. He existed in the beginning with God. God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him. The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone…So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.” John 1:1-4, 14
Michael was sitting across the table and the joy in his heart was quite apparent. “I am celebrating my first anniversary out of prison,” he said. The devolution of alcohol and drugs had propelled him into a downward spiral of physical, mental and emotional destruction. “Prison was the best thing that ever happened to me.” You see, he entered arrogant and godless but he came out surrendered and redeemed. Jesus became his Saviour and Lord behind those bars which meant he was freed before he was released! Michael will tell you that every day is brilliant now that he is devoid of the shackles and limitations of a HORIZONTAL WORLD VIEW.
“So Christ has now become the high priest over all good things that have come. He has entered that greater, more perfect Tabernacle in heaven, which was not made by human hands and is not part of this created world. With his own blood – not the blood of goats and calves – he entered the most holy place once for all time and secured our redemption forever.” Hebrews 9:11-12
Ask anyone with a VERTICAL WORLD VIEW, and they can tell you with conviction their earthly purpose and heavenly destiny.
