To me Christmas wasn’t Christmas unless it was with my family in Pennsylvania. That’s why I always made the drive. People in the North East don’t see the beauty which surrounds them all year. A few are enamoured by the first couple snow falls, but after that its’ just more of the “same old thing”. And I too understand that dynamic. I lived there for 22 years. I love the old colonial homes. It is the origins of this country I have loved all my life. The snow fall is a gift from God. One of the most beautiful things a person can see. And you can bet, even at the age of 48, I will be standing in line to get one of those “snow saucers” so I can be one of the first to slide down the nearest snow covered hill.
Never mind that fateful night when I chose NOT to go for the ride in Mike’s newly “tricked out” Chevelle with my buddy Tim. I’ll never forget the chill that went down my back when my father picked up the newspaper the following Sunday morning from his “special” recliner (all fathers had one back then … right … sort of like Archie Bunker or Martin Crane). I remember my Dad yelling over, “Hey John, arent’ these your friends?” It was a story right out of the Dukes of Hazard. A high speed chase across 4 county lines; sadly resulting in the imprisonment of my best friends.
Who Are Your Friends
When times get really tough, those “friends” will tell you they don’t have a penny to spare (when they really do). Those folks will tell you they only have a few candles left in their drawer and can’t spare another candle to light your home so you can feed your kids. The will hold onto their last can of food, never considering the person next door.
What if some day, that “sixth sense”, helps you keep your children alive?
How many of our Holy Scriptures are locked away outside of our 66 book canon? And to make matters worse, they further perverted those writings by forging additional gnostic lies and weaving them into the collection.
Lots Were Thrown … What Are Lots??
First let’s take a quick peek at Proverbs
Prov 16:3333 The lot is cast into the lap, But its every decision is from the Lord.NKJV
Whoa. No hold your horses for a moment. Let’s make sure we are not taking things out of context. The prior Proverb says:
Prov 16:3232 He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, And he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.NKJV
Okay. Well “nuff said”. The prior Proverb it not taking about “lots” so we can make a reasonable assumption that Proverbs 16:33 is entirely focused on the casting of lots. Fair enough. But there must be more to it than that. And surely there is. So lets jump forward and look at what God says about seeking wisdom in the New Testament.
James 1:5-65 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.NKJV
Now in all fairness I will warn you that the next verse warns that if you ask God for His wisdom and do it lacking faith, that you will not get what you ask for. James 1:6 pretty much threw me off course. It was damning to say the least.
James 1:6-76 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.NKJV
Now please let me be perfectly frank with you. When I read the following verse it threw me. I was immediately worried that I would not have the necessary faith to be certain that what I asked of God was going to be “from God” since I was immediately concerned that I might doubt. I cannot tell you how often I say to God “Helpst thou mine unbelief”. I worry all the time that my “unbelief” is going to keep me from believing that God is actually talking to me. This is a terrible travesty for those of us who want to hear from God with all our hearts. I hate UNBELIEF. It SUCKS!! I pray all the time … please Heavenly Father, “helpst thou mine unbelief”.
Acts 1:23-2623 And they proposed two: Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias. 24 And they prayed and said, “You, O Lord, who know the hearts of all, show which of these two You have chosen 25 to take part in this ministry and apostleship from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place.” 26 And they cast their lots, and the lot fell on Matthias. And he was numbered with the eleven apostles.NKJV
Wow. Would you please look at the Holy Bible for just a second. Please. I have been studying the Bible for 30 + years under the greatest “leaders” of the “church” and have never in my entire life seen this. LOOK WILL YOU? Isn’t God saying here in the Holy “canon accepted” 66 books scripture that your appointed apostles “cast lots” too see HIS RESPONSE for the choice of the next apostle? This was to be the divine replacement for Judas?
Lots Were Thrown and Answers Were Given
Dear Heavenly Father,In the name of Jesus, if this silly thesaurus is going to mean a darn thing to me then let’s just get this over with and in JESUS NAME please let this prayer mean something.
I took that darn book, with its’ 894 pages of words and definitions and I tossed it onto my desk in my tears and and said …
And the page it fell upon said …
And I instinctively knew why …
Pray Always to Be Counted Worthy
Luke 21:36Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”NKJV
Some things to think about as we enter into these challenging times include…
- Financial Collapse
- FEMA Camps
- Stinging Scorpions
- Flying Saucers and Alien Arrivals
- Sudden Climate Change
- Planet X
- Polar Shift
- Wormwood Splashdown
- Famine, Disasters, Loaf of Bread = Denarius
- Russia, and China Attacking / Magog / Rosh
We are not subject to WRATH, but MAYBE we ARE we subject to some Tribulation
- What if the Daniel 9:27 covenant “with many” is a treaty with the ALIENS-DEMONS?
- What if the leaders of the PRE-TRIB groups are infiltrated with Shape Shifting Reptilians?
- What if New Jerusalem shows up from the heavens as a big golden lying space ship?
YOU ARE COUNTED WORTHY
