the daily purge 4-12-17



Books? That don’t make no sense, boy*. How ya figger?

The The Purging Lutheran’s Kindle gave up its ghost long ago. It’s a mighty old electronic book reader. This one operated off vacuum tubes, a significant step up from the earliest book readers which were powered off Leyden Jars. My Sweet Rib has a brand spanking new Kindle what holds upward of nearly 1,000 books. The only title I can recall on my Kindle was Flash Forward, a science fiction book which, I think, stole ideas from the television show, Lost. In Flash Forward, people were ‘flash forward’-ed in time, but not by their own volition. Then stuff happened to them. It was made into a television show on ABC but lasted only one season. There’s nothing else to add.

Revelation 5:1-5

I saw a scroll in the right hand of the One Seated on the Throne. It was written on both sides, fastened with seven seals. I also saw a powerful Angel, calling out in a voice like thunder, “Is there anyone who can open the scroll, who can break its seals?”

There was no one—no one in Heaven, no one on earth, no one from the underworld—able to break open the scroll and read it.

I wept and wept and wept that no one was found able to open the scroll, able to read it. One of the Elders said, “Don’t weep. Look—the Lion from Tribe Judah, the Root of David’s Tree, has conquered. He can open the scroll, can rip through the seven seals.”
