Started going through Mark’s gospel for Lent. And there in chapter one is this comment, “he saw heaven being torn open.” What in the WORLD must that have looked like? (Actually, it probably didn’t look like ANYTHING in this world!) Jesus saw the breach between heaven and earth starting to rupture. I think he saw the beginnings of what he would eventually usher in in a whole new way. It was heaven – God’s domain – breaking into this darkened world. The next words Mark records from Jesus are these, “The time has come…the kingdom of God is near.” I imagine he was thinking back to the rupture…the tear in heaven. It started leaking out into our world. “Thy kingdom come…” Bring it on.
