"If Noah Lived in Today's World"

 

 

 

Good Day everyone. I have not been around much, do to the world's ways and difficulties. But when I read this, I thought about how true, though it does not quite go along with the Holy Book's teachings. I did see some truth in it about the way the world is today. And I don't think there is a living soul who is not dealing with the government having more control in one's life than the person does him or her self. God gave us free will to chose to follow Him or not, but because we live in this world we do also have to deal with the government and the worldly changes. To me this was an enlightened version of the way it could have been for Noah if he lived in today's world.
 

In the year 2013, the Lord came unto Noah, Who was now living in America and said:

"Once again, the earth has become wicked and over-populated, and I see the end of all flesh before me."

"Build another Ark and save 2 of every living thing along with a few good humans."

 

He gave Noah the blueprints, saying:

"You have 6 months to build the Ark before I will start the unending rain for 40 days and 40 nights."

 

Six months later, the Lord looked down and saw Noah weeping in his yard - but no Ark. "Noah!" He roared, "I'm about to start the rain! Where is the Ark?"

 

"Forgive me, Lord," begged Noah, "but things have changed."

"I needed a Building Permit."

"I've been arguing with the Boat Inspector about the need for a sprinkler system."

 

"My homeowners association claims that I've violated the neighborhood by-laws by building the Ark in my back yard and exceeding the height limitations. We had to go to the local Planning Committee for a decision."

 

"Then the City Council and the Electricity Company demanded a shed load of money for the future costs of moving power lines and other overhead obstructions, to clear the passage for the Ark's move to the sea. I told them that the sea would be coming to us, but they would hear none of it."

 

"Getting the wood was another problem. There's a ban on cutting local trees in order to save the Greater Spotted Barn Owl."

"I tried to convince the environmentalists that I needed the wood to save the owls - but no go!"

 

"When I started gathering the animals, PETA took me to court. They insisted that I was confining wild animals against their will. They argued the accommodations were too restrictive and it was cruel and inhumane to put so many animals in a confined space."

 

"Then the Environmental Protection Agency ruled that I couldn't build the Ark until they'd conducted an environmental impact study on Your proposed flood."

 

"I'm still trying to resolve a complaint with the Human Rights Commission on how many minorities I'm supposed to hire for my building crew."

 

"The Immigration Dept. is checking the visa status of most of the people who want to work."

"The labor unions say I can't use my sons. They insist I have to hire only union workers with ark-building experience."

 

"To make matters worse, the IRS seized all my assets, claiming I'm trying to leave the country illegally with endangered species."

"So, forgive me, Lord, but it would take at least 10 years for me to finish this ark."

 

"Suddenly the skies cleared, the sun began to shine and a rainbow stretched across the sky."

 

Noah looked up in wonder and asked, "You mean you're not going to destroy the world?"

 

"No," said the Lord. “The Government beat me to it."

“Christian Travel”

 

We would already be in front of heaven's pearly gates,

If all Christian travel was smooth, straight, and narrow.

Many sharp curves, cross roads, and stumbling stones,

An honorable Christian does find and learns to endure.

Jesus left us a superior map and signs have been posted!

 

Christians will only bundle one durable traveling valise,

A bible for directions, a family for love, a cross to carry,

Friends for encouragement, prayers for spiritual support,

And a resilient satchel filled with soothing heart and soul.

Not one of God's children will ever have to travel alone!

 

Follow road signs, look at His map, detours might occur,

Our Heavenly Father has already laid out your life's path.

Strive to overcome twisted turns, bumps, and rough roads,

Gaze towards sunshine and moon’s glow to see Sweet Jesus.

Rainbows of radiance will show bridge-ways of eternal love!

Dear Heavenly Father,


Please hear my prayer: So many in this world suffer daily from
domestic abuse. Please come to the aid of both the victims and
the abusers. Each is in need of Your loving care. It is not only
the victims that need Your love, assistance, and understanding
but the abusers as well. There are so many unseen & underlining
circumstances surrounding each situation. We cannot possibly
understand these acts of violence as You can. Please grant us the
any wisdom and understanding we will be needing so we too can
also help those ones in need. Amen
 

 

 

 

Be Blessed By God’s Love & Love One-n-All
 

 

"God Bless You All & Take Care,
Hugs-n-more hugs,

*I will journey the best I can to our Gracious God's Golden Gates*
