This is a different kind of a post today. I sometimes let my mind wander and I got to thinking about events from the Bible that if I’d have the chance which ones I would have loved to see. Here’s my Top 10 list:
I’d like to see the day Joshua prayed for the sun to stand still and he won the battle (Joshua 10:13).
King Jehoshaphat had an army coming after him and he was outnumbered, he didn’t know what to do and so he prayed to God and God answered his prayer and when he went to face the enemy, he found they destroyed each other! And, they were able to bring back the spoil, it took three days to collect it all. In one day, Jehoshaphat came back victorious and rich! What a testimony! (2 Chronicles 1:20)
I want to see the day Elijah’s altar was lit up when he prayed to God after challenging the people who worshiped Baal that the God of The Bible is the only living and true God (1 Kings 18:16-45).
I would like to have seen all of Nineveh repent when Jonah was thrown up on dry land from being inside the big fish 3 full days because he tried to run away from God’s calling! What a revival that was! (Jonah 2 – 3)
I want to see the Red Sea part and watch the Israelites walk on dry ground and the Pharaoh chasing after Moses stretched out his hand. (Exodus 14)
I’d like to see how Joseph was re-united with his father and reconciled with his brothers. After all he had been through to watch how he forgave them and ended up saving his family. I’ve struggled forgiving when I’ve been mistreated, so reading how Joseph triumphed over his own feelings when he had every right to be angry and bitter is inspiring. He chose to forgive and God blessed him, his family, and Egypt. (Genesis 50)
I want to see the King’s face when Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego came out of the fiery furnace unharmed refusing to bow to Nebuchadnezzar’s golden statute. (Daniel 3:8-26)
I’d like to see Jesus when he came to be baptized of John the Baptist and hear God say, “this is my beloved son, in whom I’m well pleased.” (Matthew 3:13-17)
I want to see Peter’s sermon the Day of Pentecost when The Holy Ghost came and 3,000 people gave their lives and hearts to Jesus and are baptized in His name in that one day! Amazing! We can barely get a few people to agree on anything these days…so 3,000 getting saved?! WOW!!! (Acts 2)
AND LAST BUT CERTAINLY NOT LEAST… #1
I so, so WANT to see the beginning the world as God created it. The Bible says the world was without form and void. (Genesis 1)
