There is an excitement in trying something new. For instance, I got tired of wearing glasses, however, without them my vision isn’t as clear as I would like it to be. So, I went to the optometrist to be fitted for contact lenses. His question was, do you want to correct your distance and wear glasses for the up close or do you want dual vision and have one for up close and one for far away? Well, if I can have it all, that’s what I want! There is an adjustment period and I’m still a little fuzzy, but I’m confident that my vision will clear up soon.
Sometimes I feel like a prophet of old, whom God gave a prophecy, by having him act out to explain what was going to happen. Though we have prophecy well written in the Word of God, an illustration will sometimes bring it to life for better understanding. However, in this case, it will give a better understanding of a particular portion of scripture.
The things we see now are just dimly lit, like when we were children, playing was fun and exciting, but now, not so much. When the spotlight of Heaven is pointed at the life we are now living, it will look like child’s play. Prophecy will be complete and will become useless because it has come to pass.
Like my dual vision during this adjustment period, when I look at a distance, my one eye becomes blurry, and when I try to focus up close the other eye becomes blurry. Eventually my vision will become clear in the distance and for the near sight, like when the light of Heaven lights up everything. We will then see how ridiculous our actions were for things we placed importance on. Like the scripture, the only lasting thing will be love. I’m going to try and become anxious about loving others and less anxious about the things that are going to disappear. How about you?
Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away... For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known. 1 Corinthians 13:8 and 12. If you look up the rest, it will fill in the gaps. 1 Corinthians 13:8-13
