God’s Promise fullfilled

He breathes his last breath and releases his spirit. The sky turns dark, rain pelts the ground, an earthquake shakes the earth and tears the veil in the temple. No longer are we separated from God. Christ has opened the door into the throne-room of God.

The Spiral Staircase

He sits with his head down, shoulders slumped, back pressed against the cold, hard stone wall.  The darkness is closing around him with each passing day, the damp air penetrating his lungs with each breath.  Occasionally, he lifts his eyes to look into the darkness below him. He can’t look for long, though he knows he will see it closer each day.  He raises his hand to wipe the sweat from his face, feeling the weight around his wrists that reminds him of the shackles that he cannot remove.  His ankles are encompassed by the same heavy weights.  He lets his hands drop back with the...
