Are we prepared for the future and what is the right thing to do.

Are you ready for your world to be turned upside down? I bet most of you would say no, in fact probably all of you. I thought about this when the eclipse happened because it went all over the world and the next time it will happen again will be in 7 years. And in the bible both of these things have a big significance so we need to start praying that this world has enough faithful people who God will save us from the beginning of end times. Because all the people that are connected somehow by connection I mean can see into the future and can talk to God. Some of them has been sworn into secrecy has been told to pray. And I don’t think that’s a good sign. And I would consider that the eclipse is not a good sign and so I hate to say this but I don’t see the people that are preparing for the end to be all that great anymore. And that is scary to me. Your Brother in Christ Jonathan Craft

24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;

26 Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

Here is the evidence from the living word. This comes from the KJV.

Verse of the day

Verse of the Day for Monday, July 24, 2017:

Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it. — Hebrews 13:2

Thoughts on Today’s Verse….

What do you you do to welcome new neighbors into your neighborhood or apartment complex? How warmly do you personally welcome visitors at your church or in your Bible study group? When was the last time you invited someone new in your congregation over for dinner or included them in a gathering of your Christian friends? While some have the gift of hospitality, all of us need to be warm and open to folks we don’t know that join us for Christian worship and fellowship. Why not make a commitment to meet and welcome one new person at church each week. In a cold impersonal world, we can make a huge difference in the lives of those seeking the shelter and grace of Jesus and his people.

My Prayer…

Father, please help me, and please help my congregation, be more open and welcoming to people who are new and who are visiting. Please use us to share your grace and provide them a Christian home. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

My thought for today

A lot of people think when a person commits suicide they go straight to hell and that’s not true. Because the criteria to go to hell changed my thinking, because a person has to be in there right mind when they do a certain act. And my thinking is a person can’t be in their right mind at all when they commit suicide. I believe they are temporarily insane. And when you commit suicide and you are temporarily insane you do not meet the criteria of a mortal sin which sends you to hell. The three criteria for a mortal sin which sends you to hell are….1.  It is a gravely wrong action, 2. The person knew it was gravely wrong, and 3. The person did so out of free will. This is something I received during mass. Now I don’t know exactly where it came from, but I think the word was truly alive and it proved to me it was the living word as I always knew it was. I love you all
