Global Warning!

August 8, 2011

SCRIPTURE: The planets and other heavenly bodies will be shaken, causing people to faint from fear and foreboding of what is coming upon the world. The they will see the Human One coming on a cloud with power and great splendor. {Luke 21:26-27, CEB}

QUOTE: In the eyes of the Apostles; patience, hope, diligence, moderation and personal holiness were inseparably connected to the ¬†expectation of the LORD’s return. Happy is the Christian who thinks like them. –JC Ryle

THOUGHT: Jesus is coming again and everything will change.

COMMENTARY: The disciples were admiring the TEMPLE and Jesus noticed. Jesus said to them, “As for the things you are admiring, the time is coming when not even one stone will be left upon another. All will be demolished.” What are you admiring today? I hope it is not a car or a house or even some technological toy. I hope it is not the beauty of a young body. In time, all these things will change. Matter of fact, there is a time coming when these things will have no value what so ever. When Jesus comes back to earth, the most important thing will be a relationship with Him. Our mission in life should be to know Him and the power of His resurrection and to share Him with as many others as possible. The world that you see now will eventually be destroyed by a fervent heat¬†and then the world that you cannot see now will emerge. Christ is our bridge. He is the only one who can get us from here to there.

EXTRA: BLOCK PARTY WEEK, nothing like it! Also, kids getting lockers at School so for the first time in a couple of months, we have activity across the street. I turned 62 about an hour ago. I have already recieved multiple texts and several cards. I guess it was hard for you to forget when I kept reminding you. I’m old enough to retire but my heart aint in it. I hope that the Lord lets me work a while longer.
