Australian Spring Sunsets – Towards Twilight

September 9, 2013 — 2 Comments

To move towards twilight is to move towards sunrise. These words are more than just mere metaphors for atmospheric [slash] astronomical observations. Hidden between the lines lies a deeply powerful theological statement inspired by Adrio Konig.

The three pictures below were taken by phone sometime last week.

Hope.

‘Spring’s’ awareness and anticipation.

Towards Jesus Christ, the Eschatos whose Spirit graciously  dwells with us, in joy-filled expectation of the eschaton that was, and is, and is to come (Adrio Konig, 1989 ‘The eclipse of Christ in Eschatology’)

…’I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man and woman. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people,  and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new” (Rev.20:3-5, ESV)

Is Jesus the restorer of worlds and all that this implies?

    Walt. I couldn’t help but notice, after I posted the pics, that the middle photo captures the image of a cross, a tree and the sun. I am still gazing at it thinking, how does this translate into an illustration of the life, death and resurrection of Christ?
