Wouldn’t it be WONDERFUL if everyone stopped hating, fighting, struggling to satisfy their own interests and looked to the Father for their care and protection while helping those around them with true respect and love. Paradise, a place of eternal bliss. We now know the difference between this and our reality, thanks to Eve’s choice in the garden, but are you aware that God has provided a means by which to supersede the consequences (DEATH) of this choice? Jesus is the Way just as the Path of Totality was the only way to see the full effects of the solar eclipse.
On Monday, I wanted to get the BUZZ on why traffic was increased 3x in some states because of the solar event. This is what I found:
If you’re wondering why everyone is freaking out about the Aug. 21 solar eclipse, it’s because this one is especially unique. While eclipses tend to happen somewhat frequently, Monday’s event marks the first time in nearly 100 years that people across the country will be able to see the total solar eclipse in its full glory — the path of totality stretches all the way from the west coast over to east. It’s a big deal for many, but can you see the solar eclipse if you’re not in the path of totality? The good news is that everyone will get a chance to experience the eclipse to at least some degree — but certain locations are definitely more ideal than others.
But wait, what does this “totality” nonsense even mean? It sounds somewhat apocalyptic, but it’s really just a word used to describe the phenomenon when the full moon’s shadow completely blocks out the sun, leaving only a fiery ring of the sun’s atmosphere (called the gossamer corona by science folks) visible in the sky. It usually only lasts for a few minutes, but it’s a pretty amazing thing to witness; unfortunately, though, this type of bulls-eye view is only going to be visible to people who happen to live along the eclipse’s direct path on Monday — aka the path of totality.

I was impressed that we have the choice each day, that God grants us to stay here, to get IN THE PATH of His provision by turning our hearts away from the selfish ways of the world toward Jesus and following His teaching. Repent…turn away from evil and denounce it. Only then can we hope to feel the full effects of the Path to Eternity (with a loving Father not eternally separated and tortured by our choices).
