Thursday – September 14th – Revelation 11:19     -----    

11:19) Then the temple of God was opened in heaven, and the ark of His covenant was seen in His temple. And there were lightnings, noises, thunderings, an earthquake, and great hail.
The Daily Walk Bible inspirational thought for today:

      Welcome to Thursday! Hey friends, it is not too late to sign up for the SunRise New Member class this Saturday beginning at 9:30am. We will cover all there is to know about the new SunRise Church, our beliefs, our organizational structure, and the vision God is calling us to follow. This class is for anyone who has not yet attended a new member class in either 2022 or 2023. This class is necessary to be a member of the new SunRise Church. Membership from the old SunRise UMC will not be automatically transferred to the new SunRise Church without attending a new member class. You can sign up on either the SunRise website or SunRise App under the “events” page. See you Saturday morning!

     In our pick verse today, John concludes the eleventh chapter of his revelation vision. With as much time that John’s vision focuses on the throne room of Heaven, this is the first time he sees the sacred Ark of the Covenant. The Ark was the Old Testament symbol of God’s presence among His people. Since Christ has come, the veil of separation has been removed and access to God is available to all believers. After Jesus’ final return we will experience God’s presence in a new and even more direct way of relationship. It is interesting to note that when John recorded this vision it is believed that the Ark had disappeared, and its location remains unknown. Biblical historians believe that the Ark disappeared when the Babylonians destroyed the temple in 597 D.C. Additional, the last Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD, some twenty years before John’s vision occurred.
