The lightening and thunder pulled me out of a peaceful prayer time this morning. The lightening was bright and the thunder came immediately. I was NOT all about it …. ….
I hesitantly peeked out our bedroom sliding glass door and saw that my potted tomato plant had fallen over. Fried Green Tomatoes???
According to the Urban Dictionary … the definition for Fried Green Tomatoes is: to take someone’s parking spot in a rude fashion. Who knew?
The “non” Urban Dictionary simply defines it as a side dish usually found in the Southern United States, made from unripe (green) tomatoes coated with cornmeal and fried.
A few moments later … a huge wind storm with rain turned the sky grey … blowing dust, branches and almost all the planks from our older side fence. Auntie Em, Uncle Henry … !!!!
I am brought to scripture …
“As the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of Man be in his day” (Luke 17:24 & Matthew 24:7)
“So Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.” (Hebrews 9:28)
“Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.” (1Thessalonians 4:17)
There is, however, another part to this scriptural truth
“For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be.” (Matthew 24:21)
“Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken; then will appear the sign of the Son of Man . . . “ (Matthew 24:29)
I believe Jesus is coming back again one day … at a time no one knows … on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
I believe the Lord will snatch me and all my fellow Believers up to live with Him in holy eternity.
I believe their will be a time of tribulation & affliction and also a time for the accomplishment of God’s redemption.
I believe that all Scripture is given by the inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.
I believe …
What do you believe?
Time to ponder … … …
