A few thousand years ago, the prophet Isaiah recorded an odd reality he observed as he gazed into the spirit realm and the future ages of the earth.
“Arise, Jerusalem! Let your light shine for all to see.
For the glory of the LORD rises to shine on you.
Darkness as black as night covers all the nations of the earth,
but the glory of the LORD rises and appears over you.
All nations will come to your light;
mighty kings will come to see your radiance.
Isaiah 60:1-3 (NLT)
Darkness as black as night covers the earth, but at the same time, the light of God shines for all to see. These are mutually exclusive realities. Darkness cannot co-exist with light nor light with darkness. What is going on here?
This famous passage is one of the many prophetic descriptors of the end of time. It is a time of great darkness covering the people and societies of the earth, but among the people of God – the light of God’s glory dawns
On this website, we are tracking the pathways of light during these dark times we live. We recognize the earth and God’s purposes are in a unique moment. It is essential for the people of God to remain in the light. To that end, the podcast series and articles published here at JBShreve.com aim to provide hope, insight, and direction toward the light of God for His people.
If you would like to see what we are tracking within the darkness that is covering the earth, please visit our sister website www.theendofhistory.net.
I have many passions – my faith, my family, my church. I also love to learn and consider where my faith fits into all of these areas, not to mention the modern chaotic world in which I live.
In 2012 I began producing a podcast called the JB Shreve & End of History. The End of History is still going strong! In fact, that podcast and website had more traffic in the last year than ever before. But I found whenever I included my faith in the perspectives of the world, some listeners became confused or, worse, even alienated.
In 2020 as the pandemic and global lockdown came into place, I began producing podcast devotionals with a small group of friends, including (my best friend) Casie (my wife). These podcast devotionals received a lot of positive feedback from a large segment of our audience that has been built since 2012 but also further alienated some listeners who only wanted a fact-based perspective of history and current events we are confronting today.
I hope our listeners enjoy the efforts here. We love to hear from you whenever the articles or podcasts touch your life in a special way. Be sure to subscribe to the blog for updates whenever new items are published here at JBShreve.com.
