Today the mid day high in Minnesota forecast is -6 F with a -30 F windchill and so it is safe to say winter is back with a vengeance.
Now I would not say this qualifies as the day Hell freezes over, but I wonder the temp in this land down under dipped to a relatively cool-ish +180 F. I can picture a few elderly demon minions donning cardigans as they are not used to this kind of 'chill'.
Of course Hell freezing over is not gonna happen and the phrase 'when hell freezes over' is only to point out a very unlikely scenario. Like, predicting the Minnesota Vikings will EVER win a Super Bowl. BUT I DIGRESS..
Seriously what has come to mind these days are the end times. I believe Jesus will come again maybe soon and there will be an end to this world. Right here in America I feel we have lost our way where an underlying anger, racial tensions, fed by a broken moral compass. Then you throw in today's technology which is on one hand such a positive, but also gives me a creepy big brother feeling. There are no real secrets anymore. Society/big brother knows what you buy, where you have been, if you have been naughty or nice even before we even added in the great new world of drones.
LOL, in one short blog I have turned from a smirking cartoonist wanting to share 'Clean Humor & God's Truth' to a 57 year old conspiracy theorist / doomsday prophet / paranoid. Be careful before you drink the grape koolaid I am drinking. :)
But, ... if we cut through all of the negatives AND positives of the world we live in the one thing truly believe is.. Jesus is coming again. Not a cute Christian cliche, but rather a biblical truth. Paul wrote in 1 Thessalonians 2:4 "Our purpose is to please God not people." So I pray the church speaks and lives out truth in love even when it offends society. IT MATTERS WHAT WE BELIEVE.
May God bless each of you to honor and serve our God in a society that often frowns on Christians. May your heart and mind not be altered by society and peer pressure. Again, our purpose is to please God not people as we ready ourselves for the Lord's return.
