Birth pangs or death knells; hard to decide. A winding down and winding up. My eyes look to the sky above, covered by a layer of yellowish, dirty particulates. I long to see it rend in two, split in half, unable to bear the weight of the Glorious King condescending, once again, to set foot on the earth He holds together.
He declared the work finished. Took His place, seated at the right hand of the Father.
And yet we wait.
Again, the “already” and the “not yet.”
