By the Sea of Crystal

A fresh sea of blossoms in early spring on a crystal clear day should encourage us all to remember our Heavenly Father’s promise of a complete renewal, made possible by a true faith and trust in Him, regardless of the winter we are currently enduring.

The theme of this Hymn’s text is drawn from John’s vision of the saints in glory, singing one of their great doxologies (Rev. 7:9-17). The initial reference to the “sea of crystal” is from Revelation 4:6 and the final (rhetorical) reference to the “King of kings” (st. 3) comes from Revelation 17:14.
Please see for more detailed historical details of this hymn.

“By the Sea Of Crystal, Saints in glory stand,
Myriads in number, drawn from every land,
Robed in white apparel, washed in Jesus’ blood,
They now reign in Heaven with the Lamb of God.”

The Wonder of His Eclipse

General revelation provides us with the knowledge that God exists. “The heavens declare the glory of God,” says the psalmist [in Psalm 19].

God’s glory is displayed in the works of His hands. This display is so clear and manifest that no creature can possibly miss it.

It unveils God’s eternal power and deity (Romans 1: 18– 23). Revelation in nature does not give a full revelation of God. It does not give us the information about God the Redeemer that we find in the Bible. But the God who is revealed in nature is the same God who is revealed in Scripture.

Not everyone in the world has read the Bible or heard the gospel proclaimed. But the light of nature shines upon everyone in every place, in every time. God’s general revelation takes place every day. He is never without a witness to Himself.

“Like one who runs a race
with strong and eager pace,
it speeds across the heavens;
the sun its path completes,”

Praise the Lord!

Fat tire bikes open up new opportunities to enjoy our Creators majestic work.
Sun , waves, melting ice, the joy of rolling motion in fresh air, over ice and sand, pedaling on a set of floating wheels.

Sometimes living in thankfulness is easier than at other times but even then the words of Psalm 150 are always steadfast and true.


“Praise the LORD! Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens!
Praise him for his mighty deeds;
praise him according to his excellent greatness! “
