Rapture Update, 3/10/10

Well, no Rapture this week, evidently. But soon, I’m sure!

After all, Jesus said so:

"Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled." --Matthew 24:34

Which tells me that it must happen very soon. After all, that generation is about 2000 years old now, and they’re not getting any younger. Some have even retired.

So have faith, Brothers and Sisters! The Kingdom of Heaven is still at hand! Above all, do not let doubt creep into your lives. Doubt leads to questions! And questions lead to thinking! And thinking leads to...more thinking! And thinking will not get you into Heaven!

Do these people look like they're thinking?

Why God Caused The Earthquake In Chile

As we know, earthquakes and other natural disasters are caused by God. He causes these tragedies, which wreak havoc and kill many people, when He is offended by the actions of the remote ancestors of those people he kills. There are many incidents of this type in the Bible; His power, wisdom, and absolute goodness enables Him to punish children for the sins of their parents and balance the scales of justice even centuries after those who angered Him are dead.

I must say I was at first befuddled when I heard that an earthquake had struck Chile last week. The quake in Haiti had obvious justification; about 200 years ago leaders of the Haitian slave revolt against France entered into a pact with the Devil, exchanging the souls of distant descendants for freedom from French rule. The voodoo rituals then and the rituals that continue today in that primitive land must anger God greatly; though remaining angry for 200 years is not a problem for God, the severity of the earthquake showed the depth of His wrath clearly to everyone who truly knows God.

But the modern country of Chile remains roughly 70 per cent Roman Catholic, which means only those voodoo rituals approved by God are practiced. Is there something else?

According to Wikipedia, Chile was settled about 12,000 years ago by migrating native Americans. This must have been the first action that angered God; since He only created the universe 6,000 years ago, He had not yet given permission to enter the land. These early settlers were obviously mocking the Creator by existing before creation, clearly defying the Holy Scripture that was eventually written.

Chile also abolished slavery in 1823, long before the rest of the Americas. Slavery is an institution granted and sanctioned by God in Old Testament law; it is not for mortal man to change those laws. The arrogance shown by those who would abolish slavery is staggering; surely, they must have been mad with power to assume such God-like control over other men's lives.

So, the earthquake is clearly a punishment, a balancing of the scales of justice, although it still remains to be seen if the death toll will be high enough.  We can only hope and pray.

More Bible Verses For Tim Tebow

Ex. 17:10-13
“10 So Joshua did as Moses told him, and fought with Amalek; and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. 11 Whenever Moses held up his hand, Israel prevailed; and whenever he lowered his hand, Amalek prevailed. 12 But Moses’ hands grew weary; so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat upon it, and Aaron and Hur held up his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side; so his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. 13 And Joshua mowed down Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.”

Obviously, this verse could potentially have great meaning to a competitive athlete like Tim. It is especially relevant to an athlete like Tim who is about to move to a level of competition for which he is ill-suited. Yes, it’s true that Tim’s throwing style has problems; he brings the ball too low before throwing it and the result is a long wind-up that will give defenders more time to react. And given the size and speed of professional defensive players, and the fact that Tim runs like molasses, further limits his value to an NFL team.

But Tim’s intangibles, his leadership abilities and inspirational personality, have always been the main attraction. If he is not going to be out on the field, he could be trained and developed to be the guy who stands on the sideline holding up his hands like Moses and help his team prevail that way. And if he is not ready to take on that role right away, he could be one of the guys who stands on the sideline holding up the hands of the guy who holds up his hands.

This is worth at least a second-round draft pick, right?

About Me

My photo
I am the Ken doll you left outside in 1983. I have been living on cat food and squirrels, coming out mostly at night, unable to wash or even change my clothes because they are permanently sewn on. I ask you, would a merciful God allow this? I just wish I could wipe this stupid grin off my idiot face.
