McKenzie comes out of Hibernation
McKenzie caught his reflection in a shop window. He couldn’t believe what he saw. He looked like someone who had been isolated, hidden high on a mountain or deep in a jungle or lost in a desert. His eyes stared and darted everywhere trying to make sense of too much information. He looked like a crazy-man, cowered and scuffling, as he looked for shadows to hide in.
His hair was long and so too was his beard. He was overweight and his clothes had seen better days. His reclusive lifestyle whilst productive had done nothing for his image. He was feeling fearful and overwhelmed among so many people in the city.
McKenzie needed a makeover, bad. First-off, he went for a short haircut and a beard trim. He wasn’t ready to lose the beard altogether, he may need it to hide behind. He couldn’t stomach the small talk from the slightly camp barber. He felt detached and uninvolved with his life and lifestyle.
McKenzie had been locked into his project all winter and he felt like a bear coming out of ‘hibernation’. In his mind, he had created a complex interweave of plots and intrigue and, in doing so, he had unwittingly distanced himself from the real world of ‘ordinary’ people. He was now struggling to re-connect…..

Daniel 12:2…..Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt.
This scripture speaks of a resurrection of the dead that takes place after the Rapture; i.e. the gathering of Christian believers with Jesus in the clouds.
Read in conjunction with Revelation 20 we learn that this second resurrection of the dead takes place at the end of Jesus’ reign of 1,000 years on earth after His Second Coming.
Those whose name is written in the Book of Life will rise to everlasting life with Jesus but those who have rejected Jesus will be raised to everlasting shame and contempt. They will be separated from God forever.
Mankind was created to be eternal. Death is a temporary state. Where we spend eternity is determined by the choices we make before we die. Where are you going?
Lord Jesus, thank you for calling us to be with you forever. Amen
