they shall reign forever and ever

It is 10:25 AM Sunday late morning in the flow of time. I can not stop time even though I know there will be a time when Time will be no more. Someday it will be just Eternity with no End.

I am down in the lower level messing with my Samsung lap top computer which I hate. I rather write on a standard desk top computer. So here I sit with our electric heater keeping me warm. This morning it is 26 degrees outside, but there is a sun shining in the sky. There will be no sun in the Eternal State. We read in Revelation, "They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever" Rev. 22:5.

I was up this morning around 5:15 AM. It has been a long morning. I do not like time changes! I have had thus far a normal morning. Carol went to church and this afternoon she drives to Lapeer, Michigan to visit with our daughter-in-law Emily and our new granddaughter Josephine with her family. Carol hopefully will make it back here this coming Tuesday afternoon.

I wrote in my paper diary this morning and read my commentaries on the Gospel of John.

"John 1-12" New Testament IV Reformation Commentary On Scripture

"Discourses And Sayings Of Our Lord" by John Brown

"John" [Baker Exegetical Commentary On The New Testament] by Andreas J. Kostenberger

"A Theology of John's Gospel And Letters" by Andreas J. Kostenberger

Not much else to report this morning.

Yesterday we watched college football most of the day. We went to bed around 10 o'clock PM last night.

music Caribou 'Our Love'

Do not know what I will do while Carol is gone. Existence keeps decaying. I will close to read "History and Spirit: The Understanding Of Scripture According To Origen" by Henri De Lubac.

"[13] I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.
[14] And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed." Daniel 7:13,14

"[26] And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,
[27] To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.
[28] And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
[29] And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
[30] And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
[31] And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.
[32] He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:
[33] And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end." Luke 1:26-33

"[29] And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.
[30] For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.
[31] But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.
[32] Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom." Luke 12:29-32
