The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: because the spirit of the Lord bloweth upon it: surely the people is grass.
The grass withereth , the flower fadeth : but the word of our God shall stand for ever.Isaiah 40: 7,8
… Jesus was baptised by John in Jordan. And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him: And there came a voice from heaven, saying Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
( John had been baptising many people who wanted to show they were making a life style change but none of them had heard an audible voice from God. John knew this was the man he had studied about in Genesis and Isaiah and now he heard God’s voice. His cousin of miraculous birth was his Saviour!)Matthew 3 : 17
“A sudden light transfigures a trivial thing, a weather-vane , a windmill, …the dust in the barn door; a moment – and the thing has vanished, because it was pure effect; but it leaves a relish behind it, a longing that the accident may happen again.”Walter Pater
