The Event


The Eastern USA has always been rather quite geologically speaking compared to the West coast with all it's faults. (I see a pun in here somewhere!) So this weeks quake was a wake up call to many there I suppose. So let us all remember who is in control...

I Am! by Mark Shultz.
The events this week remind me of a TV show on MNet recently called The Event, there was one episode where this monument was cracked and later on destroyed by the aliens.
This brings me to the subject of Eschatology... the study of End Times Prophecy.
I am not going to even hazard a wild guess as to when Jesus will return but I have for a long time been aware that we may well be in the time of his return, the world has seemed to have gone out of control of late yet at the same time I have a wonderful sense of peace about it all as I do really truly believe that God is in control and will be there for anyone that believes in His salvation through the Cross that Jesus gave all for us. We should not believe because of what we see around us but believe because what God has promised us. So fear not, God is in control of all events.
Be aware of things and be connected to the Word so you may be able to discern through the Holy Spirit the Truth from the deception that will be shown in these times.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." Johnn. 3:16

Eish! Some people had Angels watching.

Ht Firehand.
Some more background on the clip here as well...
Junk on the road together with potholes must contribute to the horrific toll on our roads as well... be careful out there!

That reminded me that God promised us that he would keep watch over us, here are just a few references to illustrate this promise.

Matthew 4:6 "If you are the Son of God," he said, "throw yourself down. For it is written: "'He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.'"

Matthew 4:11 Then the devil left him, and angels came and began ministering to his needs.

Luke 4:10 For it is written: "'He will command his angels concerning you to guard you carefully;

Luke 4:11 they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.'"

Hebrews 1:14 Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?

1 Samuel 2:9 He will guard the feet of his saints, but the wicked will be silenced in darkness. "It is not by strength that one prevails;

Psalm 34:7 The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.

Psalm 91:11 For he will order his angels to protect you in all you do.

Psalm 103:20 Praise the LORD, you his angels, you mighty ones who do his bidding, who obey his word.

Proverbs 4:12 When you walk, your steps will not be hampered; when you run, you will not stumble.

Daniel 6:22 My God sent his angel, and he shut the mouths of the lions. They have not hurt me, because I was found innocent in his sight. Nor have I ever done any wrong before you, O king."

There are many more if you are willing to read the Bible...

The most important promise however is that God will give you strength to keep your faith no matter what life throws your way once you have made the decision that He truly is the the way and the light of salvation.
Only when we realize that God has done what he promised through Jesus do we have the ability to do as asked in the Lords Prayer.

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.

Wierd and wonderful week


Og posted about this coffee table... I liked the "Doesn't have any weird splotches under black lights" bit, this struck a chord with my penchant for the CSI TV series.
But sometimes life is weirder than a TV show when you live in a crazy world like ours... yep, Bongani our top criminal on the most wanted list calmly walked out of court this week!

I loved the comment on one of the reports... "We warned the police that this person had escaped before and therefore they should tighten their security."
Like stating the obvious? so if you see Bongani... call the cops.

Which brings me to the looting in Britain... what were they thinking when they decided to bring up a generation without any discipline? Now they are slightly flabbergasted that things turned out the way they did... I nominate the Nanny State PC Politicians for the weekly award...

"For me it is clear that the root cause of this mindless selfishness is the same thing that I’ve spoken about for years. It is a complete lack of responsibility in our society. It is as much a moral problem as a political problem." David Cameron
