Left Behind

Before I ‘leave you behind’ tonight, I want to tell you about the mystery of Revelation. It was written to be a warning in code to those living circa AD 70. Believers would have understood while unbelievers and the Roman authorities would not. The reality of what happened is related in Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21. The believers were warned to flee for their safety because of the destruction to come. Unbelievers were to be taken by death and destruction along with Jerusalem and the Temple, ending the old covenant way of life.
No, you won’t have a chance to wait for the scenario of being “Left Behind” and then to make your decision for Christ. The only chance for salvation you’ll have is prior to taking your last breath. Will you be conscious and aware enough at that time?
Good night, and may God be gracious unto you! ~PMCBurkey 2014

Scary

Horror, scary, living, dead, movies, haunted houses, Christians, unbelievers

We were discussing the popularity of horror films and haunted house attractions. Why do people like to be scared?
There’s also the series “The Walking Dead.” Zombies are the newest thing. They’re too creepy for me!
We tend to think of Christians as mostly joyfilled, walking in His loving grace. Scripture speaks of believers as the living, and unbelievers as dead, spiritually of course.
Could that relegate unbelievers to the state of the walking dead? Then maybe their liking to be scared gives them the thrill of really feeling alive!

Wanted

God/Jesus was, is, and always will be. So, His Word is relevant unto all generations bringing blessings and judgments according to His will forever…Amen!

A poem for our time!

“WANTED”
God give us men! A time like this demands
Strong minds, great hearts, true faith, and ready hands;
Men whom the lust of office does not kill;
Men whom the spoils of office cannot buy;
Men who possess opinions and a will;
Men who have honor, men who will not lie;
Men who can stand before a demagogue,
And damn his treacherous flatteries without winking!
Tall men, sun-crowned, who live above the fog
In public duty, and in private thinking;
For while the rabble, with their thumb-worn creeds,
Their large professions and their little deeds,
Mingle in selfish strife, lo! Freedom weeps,
Wrong rules the land, and waiting Justice sleeps!
~Josiah Gilbert Holland

October 31

Halloween, October 31, is ten days away and the store holiday supplies are getting sparse. It’s a shame Thanksgiving doesn’t bring in the profits like Halloween. Of course one is God-centered and the other isn’t. So, that explains the retailers’ position.
I, for one, don’t like to see the media speeding holidays upon us months before their time. But again this year The Hallmark Movie Channel, now Hallmark Movies and Mysteries, is starting their Christmas movies on October 31. Well, Christmas being God-centered, I know what I’ll be doing on the last day of October and on into the Christmas season! ~PMCBurkey 2014
