Today is a kairos moment, a time between times.
Jesus is dead, buried, gone. And we wait.
And, as usual, we do not see what is going on.
Death is being swallowed up.
The gates of Hell broken down.
Satan runs trembling as yesterday’s victory becomes today’s defeat, his kingdom crumbling around him.
All these things happen on this momentous day, as Heaven storms earth and captures it in love.
All we can see is a death, a tomb, a sombre defeat.
Because our eyes have not yet been opened, we do not comprehend what God has purposed since the founding of the world.
But we will.
