cahoot or convert

Monday April 8th, Revelation 1: Grace and peace to you from him who is, and who was, and who is to come, and from the seven spirits before his throne, 5 and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. The majestic vista that unfolds before us in Revelation starts with this vision of the heavenly throne.  It is greater than any earthly throne.  It is longer lived than any earthly throne, spanning beyond the reaches of time and space.  Compared to this throne, earthly power, with all its wealth and military might is nothing.  All the threats of war, all the structural ways greed is sanctioned and blessed, all the power and wealth, is nothing compared to the greatness of God’s reign.  It is a perspective which causes us to ask ourselves, which kingdom will I serve?  Are you in cahoots or are you one of the converts?
