FROM AGE TO AGE TO ALL ETERNITY

In the Summer of ’69, as I was flying across the Pacific in an F-100, eastbound for home after a massive dose of the darkest side of humanity, The Fifth Dimension was announcing the dawning of the Age of Aquarius and taking the youth of the world by storm. It was to be an age “when peace will guide the planets and love will steer the stars … with golden living dreams of visions.” While a few hundred thousand of their patriotic peers continued to fight and die in the Asian jungle, freeloading flower children, branding us warriors as baby killers, were gathering in a pasture near Woodstock, New York, celebrating the new age by frolicking, fornicating, and frying their brains on exotic substances, trying to “let the sunshine in” on their golden visions.

Of course it did not end well. A lifetime later it’s eventide in an Age of Absurdity and lost souls are still trying to let the sunshine in without the Son, wandering further and further from reality and ultimately into eternal darkness.

As the shadows lengthen on my brief day, our Sovereign God has used the Supreme Court to provide a divine bright flash of light, a powerful reminder that he still reigns. With one lightning bolt he has destroyed the federal legal cover for the baby killers of this age–the accusers of the previous age.

I am so looking forward to the dawning of the Age of Everlasting Ecstasy, in perfect peace and love in the glorious presence of our Sovereign God. It will not be an hallucination, but the ultimate reality, rejoicing with a joy unspeakable and never a morning after. By God’s grace I am assured of finding what the flower children in their Luciferian logic have been looking for in all the wrong places. The reality is the Son reigns from age to age to all eternity.

“I said in my heart, ‘Come now, I will test you with pleasure; enjoy yourself.’ But behold, this also was vanity.  I said of laughter, ‘It is mad,’ and of pleasure, ‘What use is it?’ I searched with my heart how to cheer my body with wine… I kept my heart from no pleasure…Then I considered all that my hands had done and the toil I had expended in doing it, and behold, all was vanity and a striving after wind” (Ecclesiastes 2:1–3,10,11). 

But, by his grace, “I have set the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure.” (Psalm 16:8–9).

See you in church.

    Ecclesiastically brilliant, as usual.
