Unseen possibilities by Gary Rose

What interests you? That is; what causes you to wonder, to imagine and focus your attention on something that seems just out of the reach of your understanding. That certain something that you know with absolute certainty can not be true, but it is right before your eyes. An enigma within a puzzle that is just out of focus.

Well, this picture fits the bill. Could these really be natural phenomenons?
My imagination says absolute yes, but reason says NO. There are things in the Bible that fall into this category and this passage is but one of them…

Matthew 5 ( Young’s Literal Translation )
[1] And having seen the multitudes, he went up to the mount, and he having sat down, his disciples came to him, [2] and having opened his mouth, he was teaching them, saying:
[3] 'Happy the poor in spirit--because theirs is the reign of the heavens.
[4] 'Happy the mourning--because they shall be comforted.
[5] 'Happy the meek--because they shall inherit the land.
[6] 'Happy those hungering and thirsting for righteousness--because they shall be filled.
[7] 'Happy the kind--because they shall find kindness.
[8] 'Happy the clean in heart--because they shall see God.
[9] 'Happy the peacemakers--because they shall be called Sons of God.
[10] 'Happy those persecuted for righteousness' sake--because theirs is the reign of the heavens.
[11] 'Happy are ye whenever they may reproach you, and may persecute, and may say any evil thing against you falsely for my sake-- [12] rejoice ye and be glad, because your reward is great in the heavens, for thus did they persecute the prophets who were before you.
[13] 'Ye are the salt of the land, but if the salt may lose savour, in what shall it be salted? for nothing is it good henceforth, except to be cast without, and to be trodden down by men.
[14] 'Ye are the light of the world, a city set upon a mount is not able to be hid; [15] nor do they light a lamp, and put it under the measure, but on the lamp-stand, and it shineth to all those in the house; [16] so let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and may glorify your Father who is in the heavens.

I know, I have referred to this passage repeatedly, but no matter how many times I think about the beatitudes of Jesus, they make me feel like the graphic above does. How does happiness and persecution make sense (verse 11), and for that matter, happiness and poor in spirit (verse 3)? To the rational mind, these are contradictory concepts. But, if you really understand who Jesus is and what he taught, then they make perfect sense, for behind his teachings is his close relationship with God the Father, the unseen maker of the entire universe.

Now, getting back to those impossible stones – meet Michael Grab, the man who does the incredible balancing acts of the picture at the top. Visit https://www.gravityglue.com/blog/ to see more of his work. But, before you go there – look at this picture:

Just looking at the stones is not enough, you need to get to know the man behind the work as well. Same concept for Jesus’ beatitudes- get to know the unseen creator of all the universe and these difficult sayings will begin to make sense to you. How? Open your Bible, study and pray. After awhile enigmas will vanish!
