My mind tends to wander sometimes and it and it can be found out back at the pond. . .funny what God will bring to that wondering mind of mine. . .
We had a snow fall this morning and it was so beautiful. I’m not a cold weather lover but I do admire the beauty of the snow. I’ve heard every snow flake has its own pattern…just like people. That’s just like God to be so creative. Only one verse came to my mind about snow, which you will read at the end of this, but I did think of the white horses at the end of the bible
In Revelation 6:2, John writes,
“I heard one of the four living creatures say in a voice like thunder, ‘Come!’ I looked, and there before me was a white horse. Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest.
In Revelation 19:11 John describes this,
“I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True…then down to verse 14,
“The armies of heaven were following Him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean.
It sounds like a prince charging in on his white horse to save the damsel. Actually, the rider called Faithful and True had written on his robe and on his thigh the name King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Even better!
His entrance here signals the end of the false powers. A great battle will ensue and we know the ending. He will conquer, will take his bride and ascend to the New Earth.
Revelations describes a perfect city with no evil.
Paradise is re-created in the New Jerusalem. I bet there will be ponds there, but I’m not
sure about the snow.
Snow White had her prince. But again, that was just a fairy tale. She was not a real woman, but if she was, I think she would be in Heaven. Any woman who could live with, work with, and clean up after seven men, and with names like Grumpy, and Dopey, and still whistle, has to be an angel. OK, all kidding aside, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords charging in on his white horse and taking his bride, the church, to a paradise like place is no fairy tale. It’s the real deal, a true story, THE STORY.
The bible says our sins are as scarlet but Jesus makes them white as snow. I smile as I look out at the clean, pure flakes draping the ground, thankful that I took that step of faith and knowing how He sees me, white as the pure driven snow. I don't have to be Snow White or any other princess, I'm a daughter of the King! Because of this I will be in paradise with Him someday. And I do believe, when there, I will never be cold again, WOO-HOO!
For us believers, I guess you could say,
“And they lived happily ever after.
