Wig’s Word of God Today 12-1-2012
Caught by Truth no surprise?
Beware that your hearts do not become drowsy from carousing and drunkenness and the anxieties of daily life, and that day catch you by surprise. Luke 21:34
Revelation 22:1-7, Psalm 95 & Luke 21:34-36
I often wonder how many of us really look at the hour or moment of our lives that will end by the transition into God’s Eternal Truth. Many of us can see clearly the starting point of living in God’s Truth but do you really think about the ending? Jesus Himself warns us plenty of times to not live a life separated from God showing a desired living to please the Father above all things. “Be vigilant at all times and pray that you have the strength to escape the tribulations that are imminent and to stand before the Son of Man.” Are you ready to stand before God? Do you feel “drowsy from carousing and drunkenness?”
I remember watching my father live this life wearing thin the spiritual sense every young soul craves to encounter constantly with God. It was intoxicating to say the least of what a life of “carousing and drunkenness” did to my childhood banking the sting of belts and backhands causing my life to lead astray in hidden shame of flesh, greed and lust. I know many of you have experienced the same thing and I pray you have allowed Christ to heal the stings of forceful humiliation enjoying God’s life of faith, hope and love. What will God say to you on that pledged day of Truth equaling death? Will His Truth catch you by surprise? Paul reminded the Corinthians that death may be a mystery but living for Jesus Christ affirms Eternal Living.
“Flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God, nor does corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I tell you a mystery. We shall not all fall asleep, but we will all be changed, in an instant, in the blink of an eye, at the last trumpet. Then the Word that is written shall come about: ‘Death is swallowed up in victory. Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?’ The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our LORD Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brothers, be firm, steadfast, always fully devoted to the work of the LORD, knowing that in the LORD your labor is not in vain.” 1 Corinthians 15:50b-52c, 54b-58
I spent some time in prayer yesterday with a homeless man from New York named Tony. He’s been on a “walkabout” for over 30 of his 56 years of living. He was in love with and adored by Sheba his black Labrador Retriever he has raised from a two-week-old puppy now being over 7. I shared with him some clothes, fried chicken and dog food petting Sheba in tears and prayers of God’s love speaking to Tony about God’s Eternal Truth. Tony shared his life’s anxieties are minimal compared to most living by God’s Will day-by-day willingly without an address to come home to. His home is God’s and he shared with me Christ’s love is his no matter where he sleeps or how often he takes a shower. In prayer we parted asking a woman offering him money to pray with us holding out my hands grasping Tony’s as she gestured to join in by grabbing his. “Dear LORD,” I prayed aloud. “Help us all to live Your Will. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.”
Let us pray: Dear LORD, we pray today to not be caught by surprise ready for Your day of judgment. Day 9 of a Novena of prayers for Greg Bishop. We pray for peace, good health and our own charity and deed. We pray in Christ’s Risen Name indeed. Amen.
God Bless His Truth for America,

Rejoice and have peace in Christ Jesus!
God instructed Noah to build the Ark of safety– Genesis Six
Genesis six describes the beautiful daughters to cascade
There began to be so many a lady man wanted several to stay
In fact God proclaimed there was too numerous the humans
He allowed each 120 years to abate death and pray
Yahweh began to notice much wickedness become all living things
His regret caused many a heartache to the Creator of all to bring
To rid the earth of all active creatures of His earth bound ring
Only Noah and his sons and their wives will be God’s offspring
God instructed Noah to build theArkof safety
He guided theArk’s building by plans so stately
All living creatures will share the boat to state
Noah’s family rebuilt the world with animals he’ll save
