  • Susan Dalton on Revelation 11:15
    "And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever." (Revelation 11:15)

    Not to long ago, I was at the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. As I stood and looked out over the bay, I saw ships upon the water. There something stately about the ships on the water, like they were on top of the world. They had a certain glory. And, yet, as I was looking, there was an even greater glory that I perceived. There were beams of sunlight that shone down from the sky; down, and upon the sea, and the ships. It was a quiet, yet, glorious sight. The ships had a glory, and the beams of golden light had a greater glory; yet, it was like the glory of the ships was one glory, and the glory of the beams of sunlight were another glory; though two glories were seen, each seeming seperate, yet, together forming a perfect glory.

    I think of The Great Seal on our dollar bill. There is an unfinished pyramid that has thirteen steps. The thirteen original states united to form The United States of America. Above this unfinished pyramid is the top of the pyramid. In this top (triangle) is the eye of Providence. Beams of glory emit from this Providence. Like the ships, I see man and a glory, and God and His glory.

    I think of Revelation 11:15, "And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever." When it will be finished. Only time will tell how each nation will be judged of God.

    Genesis 11:1-9 comes to mind. Man built a city and a tower. They built a city and tower to the glory of man and not to the glory of God. The LORD was not pleased.

    Revelation 21:11 says, "And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, having the glory of God..."

    When I think of the unfinished pyramid, and the eye of Providence above, I think of that glorious day when "the kingdoms of this world will become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever."
