For almost two thousand years devoted believers, mystics, innocents, and even non-believers have reported to have near-to-life, fully perceptual, visitations with Jesus Christ. In 1992 He appeared to Glenda Green and spoke with her daily for almost four months. The expressed purpose of their visit was to paint His portrait, but nothing in the history of her career as an artist or university professor had prepared her for the life transformation that was about to take place. During this time, they spoke as friends do, of many wonderful things both miraculous and practical. Nothing would ever be the same. Her penetrating report of this experience is sincere, unbiased, and free of religious contrivance. In many ways her perceptions provide a bridge to the new millennium.
Never before has language or a state of consciousness been present to examine the nature of such a miraculous occurrence as well as to develop the profound implications of it. Here is a brilliant glimpse of eternity, rich with practical applications to life. These messages are sparkling and direct with great contemporary relevance, Imparting in every way the impact of Divinity in communion with a thoughtful and well educated woman of our generation. Amazing answers are given to more than 300 penetrating questions. Goodreads
If in this Christmas season or beyond, you would like a completely new experience of Jesus, I cannot recommend this book more highly.
Certain concepts strain the mind beyond the capacity of most. Eternity, like infinity, is one of those. Eternity is a state to which time has no application; timelessness. Temporal, on the other hand, relates to worldly as opposed to spiritual affairs; secular. We get this one because the whole of our physical existence has occurred on this plane.
What about a Christmas movie? It is had to say you have a favorite Christmas movie. There are so many great ones and many more good ones. The Bishop’s Wife is my favorite. And we haven’t left our theme of eternal and temporal.
Bishop Henry Brougham (David Niven), troubled with funding the building of a new cathedral, prays for divine guidance. His plea is seemingly answered by a suave angel named Dudley (Cary Grant), who reveals his identity only to the clergyman.
However, Dudley’s mission is not to help construct a cathedral but to spiritually guide Henry and the people around him. Henry has become obsessed with raising funds, to the detriment of his family life. His relationships with wife Julia (Loretta Young) and their young daughter are strained by his focus on the cathedral.
This 1947 film is exquisite in every detail.
Santa, didn’t mean to leave you out in the cold on this one but we’ll be back tomorrow with more about the mysteries and magic of time and space. How are the presents coming?
