Wouldn’t it be great to know the future?
You could know the lotto winning numbers ahead of time… You could know that a plane would crash and not take it… You could know how a person would react to a certain situation…
But would it be really good?
What if there is something really bad ahead of you?
When I woke up this morning, It came to me that it was Thursday, and tomorrow is “Good Friday”.
Then this idea of knowing the future came to my mind.
Imagine when Jesus woke up on that Thursday, knowing what was ahead of him.
Less than a week prior to that day, He had been received in Jerusalem with great celebration. It was like the Beatles arriving at the Ed Sullivan Show. But now it was Thursday, and He knew what was a going to happen the next day. Not exactly what I would call a “Good Friday”.
Than I thought that for me it is indeed a Good Friday. Because of that Friday I now know the future: I know I will spend eternity with my Lord in Heaven.
It is really great to know the future.
