First just a personal note on 21. My Daughter is turning 21 on November 1st (11-1-2010)
The day she was born in 1989 the Iron curtain/wall fell in Russia. Just interesting.
So the other topic I was going to write about is the you tube video Frank sent on the Lady
speaking to us "lazy" Christians who want to escape or dream of the Rapture BEFORE the
tribulation. I have been obsessed about the Rapture since I was a little girl. I have been told
many times by mostly family members the very thing she spoke of...Why us Christians in
these times should be chosen to escape, when all our brothers and sisters throughout all of History have
been Martyred for the Lord ? Why shouldn't we ? I always think of the Parable Jesus told in Matthew 20.
About the workers in the vineyard. (Feel free to read it for yourselves) But summing it up...The first
workers The owner hired to work. Worked All day long and the last workers at the end of the day
that the owner hired got payed a equal amount. No it isn't fair. We do not know why ? Maybe the first
Christians will get greater rewards, or high positions in the New Kingdom ? But We Do live (at least in
America) in the most comfortable times in History. Technology and Knowledge have changed so we
have it so, so well ! Compared to All the times in History. Sky scrapers to the sky. Rockets to the moon.
Nice Houses and ease of travel. (The list could go on and on) But we have a very hard time Spiritually in
this comfort, in NOT becoming luke warm. (Which God hates) It is a different kind of hardship...Being
mis-understood by the "world". Always fighting to keep up the good fight In "good" Times ! When we have it
ALL yet we are so discouraged and weary of this sinful world. So are we to say," OK the only way that God
will be totally pleased is with us being chopped up, burned at the stake, beat, killed, ect... for the love of
our savior ??? YEA !! (I am probably being very irreverent and cynical) Does God only want our blood ?
Yea for us ? So we as Christians can have NO hope. Nothing to look forward to ? Never a rescue or deliverance
in who knows what way ? No Hope ? No dreams? Of a rapture BEFORE the worst of times ever in the world ?
It is so tiring. Yes, it is NOT fair. But Gods ways are very mysterious and we do not ever understand His plan
and way's and Why's ? As for me, I just want to think there will be a physical freedom from earth in a miraculous
way some time. Some day (soon?) It is what gives me HOPE. It is all I look forward to. That is why I love this site !
I think many of you do to ?
