No Football In Heaven

November 30, 2015



And the ONE sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!”

~Revelation 21:5, NLT


“I have perfect assurance, there will be no football in heaven.”



One of the reasons the Jews rejected Jesus is that He was new, fresh, unique and not like everyone else. He is preparing for us a place where we will be in His visible presence, every moment. We know very little about the place but we do know that it will be new, all new, there will be no factions, division, or competition. I bet there was tears from many fans Saturday and Sunday over football and there will not be tears in heaven. I had to comment on football in a daily devotional but I’m going to take some liberties today.

  • I was not shocked by the score of Iron Bowl, I was rather sure it would be a dog fight. Auburn always gets up for Alabama; they were ready to play and they played hard. The score would have been much closer if they had not dropped the pick-6, they might have even won.
  • I was shocked, absolutely shocked that the Alabama kicker had a better game than the Auburn kicker. I would have bet the farm against the odds of that happening. The Auburn boy will probably be drafted in the NFL. It’s been a lot time since an Alabama kicker made it in the NFL.
  • The one thing we all can probably agree on is the unpredictably of College Football. I thought STATE would beat Ole Miss. It was not close. I though Michigan would give Ohio State a fit, play close if not win.
  • June and many Georgia Fans are heartbroken over the firing of Mark Richt. Former players, the media and many fans are upset with LSU’s administration for the way they have treated Les Miles. The SEC needs Les and coach Richt but both got in trouble because they could not beat Alabama. Should I be fired because I can’t preach as well as some 30,000 other SBC preachers. I do the best I can but I don’t have the gifts and skills of the others.
  • You hear people in the sports world say, You can do it if you want it bad enough.” This is not a true statement, Coach Richt and Miles are doing their best. I ran track in College and I was the seventh man on the cross country team. Simply stated, I was the low man on the totem pole. There were six faster people in front of me. We had a sprinter from Butler by the name of Royce Martin who could break 10 seconds on the 100 yard dash but he didn’t like to practice and hated distance running which is a part of a sprinter training. One day Coach Franks walked up to me and said, “Bailey, if I could put your heart in Royce, I would have an unbeatable athlete.” I understood what he was saying; I had the desire but I didn’t have the skills. Royce had the skills but didn’t have the desire.
  • Bottom line: College football has ceased to be a game, it has become big business.


  • Buford Burgess had a fair day yesterday. He need’s to eat and drink more. I wish I could give him a part of my appetite. Keep praying for the miracle.
  • Kane was at church yesterday, he is probably going to Huntsville to day for blood. He’s trying to dodge the cool and flu that is going around.
  • The LORD is good. His grace is AMAZING. We celebrated another baptism yesterday and I am praying for a baptism each week through the rest of the year. It can happen but not without divine intervention.
  • Our band sounded great yesterday: it was good to have Mrs. Linda back, we miss her when she is absent. She and Lance did a duet on one of the offertories. Don’t you appreciate the way David works with our young people. I do! Folks, the LORD was especially good to me yesterday. In my old age, I have a little anxiety about Sundays but His grace was more than sufficient and I want to Praise Him and Thank Him.
  • When I saw the parking lot this morning, I thought, “Oh no, we are going to be down today,” but we wound up with a good crowd and two good offerings. We are almost to the 19,000 dollar mark on our Guatemala offering. We have another IMB project after we reach our Guatemala goal.
  • Haley Rae will be going to Guatemala in January as a Missionary. What about that DBC! Is this fantastic or what!  As soon as we find out her departure date, we will plan her commissioning service.
  • Next Sunday we will have our opening and the two offering, then the choir will treat us with some CHRISTMAS MUSIC: then I think Joe David will preach. I don’t have my schedule here at the house.


  1. President Ted Cruz and Vice President Marco Rubio are sworn into office.


  1. In a rare event on inauguration day, Congress convenes for an emergency meeting to repeal the illegal and unconstitutional Socialist healthcare farce known as Obama[don’t]care.  The new Director of Health and Social Services Dr. Ben Carson announces that an independent group of healthcare management professionals is hired to handle healthcare services for poor and low income people.  They are also assigned the duty of eliminating Medicare and Medicaid fraud.  Government’s costs for public healthcare are reduced by 90%.  Healthcare insurance premiums for working Americans are reduced by 50%.  The move saves billions of taxpayer paid dollars.  Healthcare service in the U.S improves 100%.



  1. Newly appointed department of Homeland Security Chief Donald Trump announces the immediate deployment of Troops to the U.S. Mexico border to control illegal immigration and the immediate deportation of illegals with criminal records or links to terrorist groups.  New bio-encrypted Social Security ID’s are required by every American citizen.  Birthright is abolished. All immigration from countries that represent a threat to the safety of American citizens is terminated indefinitely. The move saves American taxpayers billions of dollars.  Several prisons are closed.

  1. Hillary Clinton is in jail, where she belongs.  Her cell is directly across from Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton who are serving time for ‘Hate Crimes”.  She bitches at them constantly from behind the bars of her cell in what some might call cruel and unusual punishment.


  1. Bernie Sanders is in the nuthouse, where he belongs.  His room is directly across from Nancy Pelosi, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Chris Tingle Matthews and Al Franken.  They meet for tea every day at ten and discuss the success and benefits of Communism and Socialism throughout the world.  They also wonder when the “Mothership” from the planet Insanity is going to pick them up and return them to their home.


  1. Windows 12 is released.  It is designed for humans, doesn’t try to satisfy the needs of every person on the planet, doesn’t require a degree in nuclear physics to operate and looks just like Windows 7 except it is easier to use.



  1. Barack Insane Obama flees the United States under cover of darkness and returns to his homeland of Kenya before his trial for treason begins.  He deplanes on a remote jungle airstrip.  It was reported that he was last seen wandering through the jungle singing “Hakuna Matata” with a chimp named Commie.


  1. Oscar Meyer announces the introduction of a new cholesterol and fat free pepperoni that tastes just like regular pepperoni.
