+ The Great Weavework
It’s the world you know, the world you’ve never known, your life and all the elements which make it what it is, the life of your neighbor, their dog’s life, that favorite coffee cup and whatever its held, the deep blue zenith of an unclouded heaven and what all there is up beyond it that scientists assume over and no man knows. It is the wings of a passing butterfly and the scales of a silver fish, it is tomorrow and today and all the yesterdays that make tomorrow. In its vast majesty, all i can liken His design and creation and the trillions of seen and unseen connections by which this all becomes What Is and What Will be by The Creator’s plan and motivation is the Great Weavework.
Like multitudes upon multitudes of varied colored threads, woven in a complex choreography where the words “random” and “chance” have no place…indeed every detail of every grain of sand and every blazing star in heaven has a place, a purpose and precisely connects in creation to all other things He has made. Each thread followed far enough ties with hundreds more and which in turn tie to thousands more and which in turn tie to millions more. each individual in his or her life pass that short time tangled in the few threads near to them, never knowing how far their thread has traveled and with what other colors He has woven it and most importantly, what the massive tapestry shows when it is unfurled through the far reaches of space, time and Sovereign Design.
If we can not figure the meaning of the existence of a gnat it is because our vision is limited, for now, to the threads nearest us, and the colors we can see. how might we know if one gnat changed the course of history or if by virtue of a single insect existing or not, thus was determined the existence of a galaxy far from this one world called Earth, where was made His express image in flesh. if these things seem big, remember we are just wrestling with gnats, but we’re reaching to take hold of giants. To extend the mind to the reaches of wonder concerning the perfect majesty of all YHWH’s design is worthy of doing, but as infinite as He is and impossible to fully achieve. That in itself is greatness…that we can be assured that we will never grow bored, in this age or the world to come of learning of all that He has done and will do.
I am certain that all words are pale next to the immensity of the tapestry of His design… what description can suffice? even so , for now…let’s take hold of gnats, and then giants, and understand, if possible, the purpose which He has determined upon all creation, the sacrifice He has made to secure it and the reason a far misty past is closer this day than it was a hundred years ago. Who knows if your thread and mine have a history changing purpose to which they are both connected?
Can one decision made by one being thousands of years ago lead to nearly all things which make up what the modern world is today?
Has He warned the modern world what it means to forget history and be doomed to repeat it?
Is there anything New under the sun?
Is time circling in upon itself, caught in a cycle born from the conception of sin into creation?
Has He determined the end of the ages by virtue of Messiah defeating sin and the cessation of circular time?
“and the angel which i saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, and swear by Him that liveth forever and ever and who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be Time No Longer… but in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of Elohim should be finished.”
