"Some thoughts.....as I go "off the grid" for the next week......."


 

 
I'll be able to see Five Doves, but probably no time to post for the next week.

Some random thoughts......

ONE- Seems like we're in a LULL to me right now.  They KICKED THE CAN down the road AGAIN for the Fiscal Cliff and Debt Ceiling talks are still ramping up......so nothing new there yet.  And with the Elections in Israel soon, no NEW news on them going after Iran.  But, maybe that heats up after the election ??  I expect it will.

TWO---   Heard an interview with Mohammed el Arian (?) from PIMCO Investments..... he thinks we are "coming out of the new normal" ...and things are slowly getting better.....but he added TWO Caviats...
 
1-  If the EU stumbled and back slid on any progress econmically...AND.....
 
2 - IF the Middle East Exploded with problems, whether it's in Syria....or Iran.....or with Israel.... he didn't get specific.
 
and...

I COULDN'T AGREE MORE........  I would add a third though......and that is IF the US does NOT get serious about adressing the Debt Ceiling and Spending....and we get downgraded AGAIN...... the markets could shudder and fall like they did the last time in August 2011.  We'll see....

 
In spite of this "lull" .....  the world's weather and earthquakes continue to creak and moan, don't they?


And of course.......as I posted yesterday.....  that new Newsweek COVER with Obama, and the quote "The 2nd Coming"     UNBELIEVABLE.....out fo the mouth of UNbelievers...... comes that statement right OUT of the Bible!!  Loved it!

I still believe the next 4 months....up to early June....could get interesting as Israel just HAS TO decide if it is going to do a pre-emptive strike on Iran.

 
So......

ONE- Obama would get re-elected..
TWO - The Middle East DOES explode with war involving Israel.....Iran?  and Syria??
and
THREE - Around that time, we have the Rapture.

Could it all happenin the next 4-5 months?  We shall see.....

 
I have a good friend still struggling with Acute Leukemia.....second bone marrow transplant and now, diminished prospects for a quick/full recovery......and having spent $4 million on the medical bill......fortunately has GREAT health care plan....but future finances are STILL in grave trouble for the family..   and an in-law-family member with cancer as well......having spent $1 million as well..... and their future finances in serious trouble too.  UGH!!!!!!!!!!!      I hope for a rapture soon just so these people don't have to continue this incredible struggle....

Life is NOT fair........for so many people.......even Christians....ALL OVER THE WORLD.   My own enjoyment during the start of this new year is tempered by the struggles of my friends, and others, for all they are going through.  Even I ask...."why me.....Lord.."  as I count my own blessings...because I know, "that any day.....but for the Grace of God.......it could be me....."    

I would trade my BEST day even now.....for the Return of Jesus Christ ina Pre-trib Rapture.  THAT is the NEXT GREAT ADVENTURE.....and I remain EAGER for it all to happen!!
 
It does seem so very close....

Even on Rapture REady's post on Monday he ended with "The Rapture of the church has never seemed more imminent!"

Couldn't agree more!!
 

TICK TOCK ??  
YFIC,
