Random Thoughts Throughout the Week of 9/11

I have been posting a daily thought on Facebook as I prepare my message on the decade remembrance of 9/11. As I reviewed them, it made sense to they were worth stringing them together

-All of us has to go through tribulations. As long as we believe heaven hasn’t come down yet and glory filled our souls, we have to speak of these things like: People fainting from fear and foreboding of what is coming upon the world, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Luke 21: 26. May we read on to our Teacher’s “prevailing” words? v. 36

-We prefer gospel light with two artificial tablespoons of sweetness. We forget even Jesus entered into the world through travail. The birth of a child comes through painful labor. Might the kingdom of God come through travail?

-The ultimate future is not about the worlds becoming, but God’s coming. It is not like the world is going to grow up and mature and then God stands up to applaud in the heavens because we finally got it right. That makes all the difference to us in two worlds.

-When weather forms ahead of us and moving toward us, we are to get ready for its impact. So, when Jesus says the “redemption is drawing near”; he is saying get ready for hope is ahead and over our head.

-We are not to cower; the terror that has consumed us in this last decade doesn’t have the last word. We see life from above, so we might see who is in control and where to place our hope.
