Looking Beyond an Aurora...

Last night, in my own locality, it was predicted by meteorologists that we had a "good" chance of viewing auroras caused from the M 6.5 solar flare that shot off from the sun last week.
But I know in our area that we get lots of cloud cover. Still I hoped that I would get a chance to see the first aurora of my lifetime. A rare occurrence here, for sure. As evening fell, it remained cloudy. My husband said to wait until it got very dark. So I kept looking north out of our front window, but every time I did, there was nothing to see. My husband got up and looked in the night time as well, but also saw nothing.

Nothing to see here, folks... move along...

I was musing about this. I was peering into the heavens for an aurora. But one day soon, we will behold something else far greater than the beauty of the "Northern Lights," as they are called.

Compasses are made to give us bearings. To give us a sense of direction. The compass is always to point to True North. True North points to Ouranos.

What is Ouranos?

In the Blue Letter Bible, in the Outline of Biblical Usage it is described as:

1) the vaulted expanse of the sky with all things visible in it

a) the universe, the world

b) the aerial heavens or sky, the region where the clouds and the tempests gather, and where thunder and lightning are produced

c) the sidereal or starry heavens

2) the region above the sidereal heavens, the seat of order of things eternal and consummately perfect where God dwells and other heavenly beings

You see, a very special Someone is going to come from the place called Ouranos.

We are actually told to be anticipating this One.

In I Thessalonians 1:10 we are told to wait:

"And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, [even] Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come."

Rignt now is a time of confusion. So many different voices are crying out with different schemes and methods, all crying for us to pay attention to them. But the Spirit's voice is a still, small voice.

He is not a voice of condemnation. He is not a voice of accusation.

He is a voice of grace. A voice that calls you to come into the peace, love and abundant life of the One who will come again from Ouranos.

We are not to look for the antichrist, but for the Son from Heaven, before whom one day we will all bow.
"that at the name of Jesus
every knee should bow,
of those in heaven,
and of those on earth,
and of those under the earth,
and that every tongue should confess
that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father." Philippians 2: 10-11

Maybe it was good that I did not see the aurora for,

1 Corinthians 2:9 states "But as it is written: "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him."

That is my destiny, if I love Him. And that can be your prospect, too, if you, also, are one who is anticipating the Son from heaven...
