Three Tragic Verses – One Unavoidable Conclusion.

When presented with the facts, no matter how much we don’t like what they say – 
sometimes the conclusion is unavoidable –

The U. S. will not help Israel at a critical time – and we will be part of ushering in “The End”.

Three tragically depressing verses from the Bible are these –

Eze 22:30 “I looked for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found none.

Zec 12:3 On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves.

Rev 4:1 After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.”

Are all Christians supposed to be the same?

Are all Christians supposed to be the same?

Are all Christians supposed to be the same?  Will we all end up dressed in white robes and singing worship songs for all of eternity in Heaven?  These are interesting questions.  I know at least some Christians who think the answers to some, if not all, of these questions is “yes”.  But is that really true?

The Lord gives and the Lord takes away

The Lord gives and The Lord takes away

The Lord gives and the Lord takes away.  It’s a pretty common saying.  It’s most likely to be used when something bad happens.  Like it’s supposed to make people feel better.  And it might actually accomplish that goal – if it was told correctly.  It’s like the old thing about the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.  So here’s the truth about the Lord gives and the Lord takes away.  It’s true.  However, it’s not the whole truth.  Therefore, it isn’t actually “nothing but the truth”.

What Didn’t Happen When Jesus Died?

That’s hard for some people to accept. It can seem too “convenient”. Too simple. It’s not enough.
For many people, with the lives we’ve had, it’s hard to “believe”, just because a list of things was done.
This is for you – the people who have a hard time. Because it’s not just a list of things that could be checked off as “accomplished”. It’s also about things that weren’t done. Things that couldn’t be done.

Lord, you have been our dwelling place - Moses

Lord, you have been our dwelling place

Lord, you have been our dwelling place.  Moses wrote that in Psalm 90.  It’s from the very first verse.
Ps 90:1 Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations.

But wait.  This is part 2 of a series about “The End”. Why are we looking at the beginning?  Well, it’s because what happens at the end is very much dependent on the beginning and the middle.  And on one other thing.  Honesty.

Joseph - "The sun, moon and eleven stars bowed down to me"

Joseph – “The sun, moon and eleven stars bowed down to me”

Ge 37:9 Then he had another dream, and he told it to his brothers. “Listen,” he said, “I had another dream, and this time the sun and moon and eleven stars were bowing down to me.”
Cool.  Maybe.  Depends on what it means.  Why would the sun, the moon, and eleven stars bow down to someone – even if it was possible?
Maybe it would be good to put some context around this.  It’s from Genesis – chapter 37.  It was said by Joseph – you know – the kid with the coat of many colors. Why are we looking at this?  Because of a question that came up in a class – about what the sun and moon represent.  Were they about Joseph’s father and mother?  Or did they represent something else entirely?  And, if it’s not about Joseph’s parents, then doesn’t that even put the eleven stars into doubt – were they really about his brothers?  Let’s find out.

Our accuser could be Moses?

Genesis – including the creation account – was written by Moses.  It was the beginning.  If we don’t believe it, then we’re calling it a lie.  And once we begin to call God a liar, how can we all of a sudden claim to believe anything at all that He says?  If we can’t accept the things are are plainly visible, how can we begin to accept the things that aren’t visible at all – let alone the things that will happen in the future?

Keeping up to date

We both thought this notebook was up to date – “following the law” so to speak. It wasn’t. But – no one checked – so no one knew. And it can be that way with our lives too. If we don’t check – we can get way off the path that God has for us to follow – and not even realize it.
