Happy day before Easter!
I wanted to watch the eclipse of the third blood red moon this morning. I woke up at 3:00 am Pacific time, and saw a little bit of the moon, and thought I was seeing the eclipse. I waited for the moon to return, and sat on the floor, near our patio door, watching the sky. I prayed and thought of what prophecy these moons might be fulfilling, as they are signs in the sky.
I waited for a half hour, thinking that was a long time for the moon to be out of view. I opened the patio door to see better, and realized it was sprinkling and the sky was clouded over. Oh well, I did see the pictures from British Columbia, Canada, and from Colorado, and this site had a great picture from Las Vegas, Nevada: http://www.space.com/28984-total-lunar-eclipse-photos-april4-2015.html
The other thing I was looking forward to today, was an Easter drama. I try to go every year with my family. It is a wonderful Easter experience. The actors in the play are from the Spokane Dream Center. They prepare all year long. Their story is real, because they’ve experienced salvation in a personal way.
You can watch a preview on their website, and if you are in Spokane, Washington, next year around Easter, please try to attend as it is well worth it! http://www.spokanedreamcenter.org/sdc_021.htm
The Pastors of the Dream Center have had an interesting life. Dave and Alice Darroch, are the Senior Pastors of the Spokane Dream Center, and their website gives their testimony this way:
Dave was born and raised in the southern African country of Zimbabwe and joined the Royal Air Force in England in 1963. While based on the Island of Malta in the Mediterranean he met and married his wife Alice. In 1972 they were selected for the British/United States Military Exchange Program, and arrived on Whidbey Island in the State of Washington where life dramatically changed for them. In 1973 they were saved and immediately realized a call into the ministry in the United States.
After returning to the United Kingdom and a miraculous release from the Air Force, they finally returned to the States in 1980, and took up residence in Spokane, Washington, where they have served the Lord faithfully ever since. They are now US citizens, and the parents of two children Mark and Cherelle, two grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
The salvation message, the gospel message, is the most important thing we can tell someone. What an incredible experience to witness salvation!
Luke 15:7: I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.
The drama I attended today was full of the gospel message, and ended with a testimony, and a call to repentance.
Heaven experiences joy over sinners who repent. Make heaven happy this Easter!
Dear God, thank you for the gift of remembrance. Easter is a time to reflect on Your great sacrifice, victory, love, and mercy. We are a blessed people to know of Your salvation. Thank You for the gift of grace and love You gave us in the form of Your precious Son, Jesus. That He was willing to die on the cross, and suffer for our sins is inexpressible. I give You glory, honor, praise, and thanks for everything. In the wonderful name of Your Son, Jesus, Amen.
