Dark Skies – Part 3

“Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.”  Hebrew 4:13

MISSING TIME

One of the central elements to stories such as Travis Walton in the 1970’s and Barney and Betty Hill in the early 1960’s is the element of missing time.  A period of time that simply cannot be accounted for.  For some reason the conscious mind shuts off or shut’s down memories that are either to terrible to be recalled or are not intended to be revealed.

It was not until several years later, the early 1980’s that the second piece of the puzzle that was May 1975 fell into place with the emergence of a stunning and previously forgotten memory.

BREAKTHROUGH

The memory of this strange and disturbing night in 1975 lay dormant for a long time. It didn’t make any sense and for a Christian it was almost impossible to know where to categorize it. It was during the early 1980’s that I came across a book authored by Ray Fowler titled “Casebook of a UFO Investigator” in which he documents UFO encounters that include missing time.  There it was again …. missing time.  And, while it was unknown at the time whether the night in 1975 was UFO related or not it certainly seemed that it could be. A phone call to Mr. Fowler confirmed my suspicion.

*For those of you who have surmised from the story so far that the experience is mine, it is not. Yet, it is. This is the experience of someone close to me, someone I love. And, while the experience itself is not mine, the story and the aftermath that surround it are. And, with the permission of the one to whom it initially occurred, it is mine for the telling.

Following the phone call to Mr. Fowler, a new and even more disturbing piece of the puzzle fell in to place. And, when this shoe dropped, it became almost certain that there was much more to this story than we had ever expected.

“I can’t believe what had just happened. This is crazy. How could I have possibly heard my name, my full name – not once but twice. I need to regain my composure. I’m going to pull my car to the side of the road and rest for a few minutes”.

Once the car was stopped and then re-started, one would only need to pull directly back on to the highway to continue the direction you had been traveling.

Why, then does your memory tell you that instead of pulling directly back on to the road  as you normally would do – you first had to drive across a via duct coming from the opposite direction to get back to the side of the road to where you had previously been.  Which begs the question –

How in God’s good name did you get from one side of the road to the other without remembering it and where had you been in order to get there?

This became then the haunting and driving question that just had to be answered.. But, the answer when revealed was more than expected.  More terrifying and unsettling – (and perhaps farther reaching in scope) than we could ever have imagined.

Dark Skies – Part 2

 
From July 12, 1952 through July 29th of that same year, a series of UO’s were seen, documented and photographed over Washington DC in what is often referred to now as “the Washington flap”.  A coincidence perhaps, but on that same day in 1952 a baby  was born far across the continental US who would have his own encounter with this peculiar and yet unexplained phenomenon.  But this time it would not be an encounter of the first kind -as the Washington sightings were –  but of the third - an idea that was popularized two years later  by Steven Spielberg in his 1977  movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
 
Close encounters of the first, second and third kinds.
 
     For those of you who may not be familiar – close encounters are broken down in this way:
  1 –   A close encounter of the first kind is described as :  Visual sightings of an unidentified flying object seemingly less than 500 feet away that show an appreciable angular extension and considerable detail.

2-  A close encounter of the second kind is described as:

A UFO event in which a physical effect is alleged. This can be interference in the functioning of a vehicle or electronic device; animals reacting; a physiological effect such as paralysis or heat and discomfort in the witness; or some physical trace like impressions in the ground, scorched or otherwise affected vegetation, or a chemical trace.

3- A close encounter of the third kind  is described as:

UFO encounters in which an animated creature is present. These include humanoids, robots, and humans who seem to be occupants or pilots of a UFO.

 
      Over the past 50 or so years, sightings of the first, second and third kind have been on the rise.  But, why? Who are these alien beings, if indeed that’s who they are?  And, why  if they are so interested in us have they not been forthright in disclosing their identity – declaring their intentions?
 
 
HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT
 
First of all, I would like to say that I believe there are those who know. They’re just not saying.  As for the rest of us, we are left to speculate. But, with a bit of deductive reasoning, I think we can get a pretty good idea of who they are and what they are about.  For their cover, their identity and their agenda – their dark agenda are as they say hidden in plain sight if we know what to look for.
 
 
   A CLOSE ENCOUNTER OF THE THIRD AND UNWANTED KIND – MAY 1975
 
Imagine yourself driving late at night down the interstate through the long lonely stretches of the Utah and Colorado desert. Its near midnight.  Not many cars on the road at this time of night. Every now and then a big rig will pass with a rumble and a whoosh; their taillights fading in to the still of the darkness like the last dying embers of a lonely camp fire.
 
 On coming headlights are few and far between and the desert landscape stretches out around you in ghostly isolation. The moon is dim ….. its pale light shrouding the landscape around you in varying shades of gray …. and you are completely alone…. the radio and your thoughts, your only companion.   It’s ok, you’ve made this drive before and you know now that you are not far off from your destination – maybe another 30-40 miles at most.
 
Suddenly, the sound of static fills the car but, its not coming from the radio …. and you hear your name called – first, middle and last. Loud and clearly audible in the midst of the static – your name, not once but twice. The sound unexplainably does not seem to be coming from outside the car, nor in the car – and it is definitely not in your head.  How can this be?  The hair on the back of your neck stands on end – as if responding to the static,,,,,, or perhaps the fear that is settling in your stomach like a sour and putrid pit. And, you are frightened beyond imagination.  And, still as far as you can see …you are  completely and utterly alone. . No lights, nothing …. just the dark and endless desert ….. silent …. so silent.
 
You can’t believe what you just heard. Not once, but twice and wonder “am I losing it?”  Maybe I’m more tired than I thought. And in spite of intense fear and the hair still that is still standing at attention on your neck, you pull off to the side of the road to rest and regain your composure.  After resting your eyes for a few minutes you pull back on to the highway to continue your journey and arrive at your destination as planned. And, it is not until the next day that you realize that you reached your destination much later than you should have. A good two to three hours had passed the night before that simply could not be explained …. could not be accounted for  … and the sour that had been your  stomach the night before rises up once again at the realization that something is terribly, terribly wrong.
 
to be continued ….. 
 
“The coming of the lawless one will be accompanied by the power of Satan. He will use every kind of power including miraculous signs, lying wonders and every type of evil to deceive those who are dying, those who refused to love the truth that would save them.”  2 Thessalonians 2: 9-10

Dark Skies – Part 1

 If the night had eyes what would it see?
On the night of November 5, 1975, a man by the name of Travis Walton went missing after he and a crew of men he was logging with spotted a large silvery disc hovering above a clearing in the mountains of Arizona. Stopping their truck to investigate, Walton got out for a closer look, where according to witnesses, he was struck by a beam of light emanating from the craft, which levitated his body in to the air before dropping it back to the ground. Terrified, the men fled the scene to notify authorities who on investigation were unable to find any trace of Walton until five days later when he turned up claiming that he had been abducted by aliens aboard the silver craft he had left his truck to investigate.  The story generated a good deal of publicity and was later made in to a movie titled “Fire in the Sky” which many of you may have seen.
It was in this same year – 1975 – that someone close to me had an encounter that would rival the Travis Walton story.  It’s a story I know well. And, one that has had a direct impact on myself and my family in the years that followed. A story that is both riveting in content and disturbing in detail.  A story (like that of Travis Walton) of such magnitude, if true – that the world in which we live will never be viewed the same by those who hear it.
For  many, the idea of E.T. is completely laughable. But, in the last 20-30 years following a movie by the same name, there has been a growing acceptance of the idea that we are indeed “not alone”.  But, who are these space brothers?  And, if they are visiting us, what is their agenda?  Questions I ask in a rhetorical sense only as most readers of this blog would agree they are anything but what they would have us believe.  And, are in fact much more of the spiritual realm than of the astral –  a detail given away by their behavior and a careful study of the Bible.
That being said, I believe there are pieces of the puzzle yet to be uncovered and it is my goal in writing this series to try to understand (and bring to light) what happened under dark skies in May of 1975 in the hope and prayer that those affected would be freed from their long reaching tentacles and that they would be exposed for what they really are.
I like how LA Marzulli puts it (regarding the alien presence and their agenda) -
                    “it’s real, it’s burgeoning and it’s not going away” 
And, folks I’m here to tell you – he’s right.  It’s not going away – but, it will be exposed and brought to light just as Jesus said, in Luke 8:17 -
  “There is nothing hidden that won’t be revealed, and there is nothing secret that won’t become known and come in to light”.

Two Towers, Two Flags – Surrendering to the New World Order

      On the morning of July 22, 2014, New Yorker’s awoke to the sight of white flags fluttering in the breeze atop the twin towers that serve as brackets for the iconic Brooklyn Bridge in New York City.  As of this writing, it is still a mystery as to who placed the flags atop these extremely difficult to reach towers and why.  Adding insult to injury, the bridge is under heavy video surveillance and police protection leaving one to wonder how a “stunt” or” a prank” (as it has been called by the NYC authorities) could have been carried out without a hint of detection.  But, is this all it was – a stunt or a prank?  If  you buy that story  then all I can say is this – “ I have a bridge in Brooklyn, I would like to sell you!”
    In the early hours of the morning, (3:30 a.m. to be exact) –  the lights to one of the towers above the bridge flickered out followed 13 minutes later by the light to the other tower. The next morning,  lo, and behold – the American flags that normally grace these towers had been replaced by bleached American flags – the source of the snuffed out lights – aluminum foil baking pans of the type turkey’s are basted in used to cover the lights that normally illuminate the towers.
    As I started to investigate this story I was initially convinced that the bridge which spans the East River was the focal point of the story,  but have since changed my mind. I now believe that the focal point is the towers themselves and not the bridge. Take a look at the photo above.  In the background to one of the bridge towers, the One World Tower can plainly be seen standing where the other twin towers once stood. The date of the bridge  incident (July 22) – 51 days short of the 13th anniversary of the fallen 9/11  towers.  Which leads me to believe that these two events are somehow connected.  The date of July 22 possible chosen to represent a doubling of the number 11 – the two towers of 9/11 and the two towers of the bridge.  But, if this is so – why?
I think it would be safe to say that the America we knew pre 9/11 has faded from its former glory – much like the faded colors on the white flags.  Not erased, but barely visible. The powerful red, white and blue that stood watch over a nation now faded to but a ghost of its former glorious self.  A once valiant young man, now aged and decrepit – impotent of strength and purpose – now more dead than alive.
*****
High towers in the Bible are often symbols of pride. And, on 9/11 – a nation proud and arrogant in its own strength was brought to its knees.  But, instead of being humbled –  it was determined – yes, even vowed,  – that we would come back better and stronger than before.  But, has that been the case?  Realistically, we know it has not.  The nation has steadily been in decline and seems to be even now in the throes of death – the faded white flags a possible acknowledgement of that fact.
     The use of white flags as a symbol of surrender (or truce)  date back many centuries and  is universally understood by just about everyone. But, these flags weren’t just white – they were American flags deliberately bleached to fade the colors. This I believe was done as a statement.  In other words, the nation represented by “Old Glory” is set to fade from history – the goal of the One World Order has been realized at last and is  coming in to view.  The bleached white flags on the twin towers of the bridge may be an acknowledgement of the realization of these goals.
     As a side note it is interesting that the aluminum pans used in this incident were turkey basting pans of the type used in almost every American home on Thanksgiving.  Thanksgiving, pilgrims, founding of the nation etc.  A holiday that commemorates blessing and thanking God for all he has done for the people of this nation.  In this incident – the aluminum foil pans were used to block rather than illuminate light – which, I find to be interesting given the current state of the nation and its attitude towards God.
     Most will view the switching of the flags on the Brooklyn Bridge as nothing more than a prank. I suppose only time will tell.  If nothing else, it serves as a reminder that in spite of our high-tech precautions and often intrusive procedures put in place after 9/11 – we remain as vulnerable as ever.  There is no safety outside the protection of God – if you think otherwise, dear friend, you are sincerely deluded.  I encourage you now, if you have not done so already – make God your hiding place – there is no other.

Who Does God Hate?

We’re all familiar with this image, the cowardly lion from the Wizard of Oz. The lion who joined Dorothy and her friends in a trip to see the wizard in search of that which they lacked; a heart, a home, a brain – and courage. Yes, courage. I came across an article on Raiders News Up-date recently regarding a HUFFPOST article by Pastor  Derek Penwell regarding a recent statement by Franklin Graham speaking at the Family Research Council Watchman on the Wall, where he ask this question of his audience. Who does God hate?

“Cowards” he said, “God hates cowards”.

A statement Pastor Penwell apparently takes great issue as demonstrated by his remarks on a recent blog.

But what does the Bible say about cowards?

But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murders, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, idolaters and all liars – they will be consigned to the lake of burning sulphur – this is the second death”. Revelation 21:18

According to Penwell statements like these make it hard to convince anyone that God is a loving God.

From his article, Penwell is quoted as saying:

S

peaking as a Christian pastor, I attest that following Jesus is difficult enough without having to live down the advanced billing from folks like Franklin Graham, who are convinced that God has nothing better to do than to figure out new categories of people to despise. 

 

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/derek-penwell/franklin-graham-is-the-wo_b_5392373.html?ncid=txtlnkusaolp00000592

Really? New people to despise?  This in my opinion this rates up there with one of the most ludicrous statements I have ever heard, and from a Christian Pastor no less.

What planet is Pastor Penwell living on anyway? Or rather, what Bible has he been reading? Because it sure doesn’t sound like mine.

What startles me more than anything is the small view that Pastor Penwell obviously has of God. Small view and lack of understanding of character.

Yes, Pastor Penwell, God hates cowards.  And, so should we.  And, if we find it in ourselves, we need to do some serious thinking about what it means to be a Christian.

God hates because he loves. Did you get that —– GOD HATES BECAUSE HE LOVES!!

And, it is because the things he hates, are the very things that destroy those that he loves.

Pastor Penwell believes that we will have a hard time selling the love of God by condemning what God despises.  But, I have news for you Pastor,  It’s not my job to sell the world on God’s love. Its only my job to tell the world of God’s love. And, to defend it ….. something a coward will not do.

I don’t know about you but I think I have spent a big part of my Christian life in cowardice.  What will people think, what will they say, if they know I believe xyz.

I came face to face with this a couple of years ago, when I was confronted with a decision to make at my job.  My new position required making referrals for women for abortions. All I had to do what make a phone call, fax some papers etc ….. that’s it. Not like I was actively involved in the procedure. But, because of my beliefs I could not do it. I went to my supervisor knowing full well I could be fired and told her I would not do it. I trusted the Lord knowing that her response could go either way. As it turned out, they found someone else to do that job and I was out of the loop on that. But, what I did do was amass information for the local pregnancy center, which, I gave out to the girls when they came in in the hope that one of them would call the center and save their babies. If anyone had turned me I for this, again, I could have been fired.

We’re living in a time folks, when, we are going to be called on to be brave. The days ahead are no days for cowards.  In order to love what God loves, we must hate what he hates. And, be willing to take a stand for it.

I’m sorry Pastor Penwell, cowardice convinces no one of God’s love.

Making the Impossible, Possible

   It’s been refreshing to see the number of faith based movies that have been making their way in to the theatres lately and none could be more heart warming and hopeful than the latest “Heaven is for Real”.  I saw it a couple of weeks ago and like most who have seen the movie was completely taken by the portrayal of the young boy who had the experience and his description of what heaven is like.  But, as much as I enjoyed the movie, I would be remiss not to say that in my opinion, it missed the mark and missed it badly.
   It’s been amazing to see the popularity of this movie (and book) and why not – everyone wants to know – is heaven for real?  But that question was answered a long time ago by someone who could answer it with certainty and that someone is Jesus.  Yes, heaven is for real – and, so is hell.  Uh oh – not sure how many movie tickets that would sell!  For Jesus spoke equally about hell as he did heaven, if not more so.  I cringed in the movie when the woman ask the Pastor if her son was in heaven and instead of answering the woman from the words of Jesus, he gave her a generic answer that played more to her emotion than the truth of scripture. Think about it. How would Jesus have answered that question?  Not to be unkind –  Jesus was never unkind, but, he was always truthful.  And, the Pastor should have answered her the same.  Jesus made it plain that the way to heaven was through him – saying himself  –  “I am the way, the truth and the life – no one comes to the Father except through me”. John 14:6
   Yes, according to Jesus there is one way and only one.  And, it is him. Why? Because he is the only one who paid the price for sin and conquered death.  Therefore it is impossible for any other road to lead to heaven.  Simply impossible. In spite of what other religions, philosophies and good works promise, they can never deliver –  for none of them lead to God  but rather away from God and ultimately to a place of permanent separation which the Bible describes as hell.  A place where there is nothing of  light, love, kindness, beauty or goodness – for these are all aspects of God.  Instead there is pain, loneliness, darkness, desperation and hopelessness.- all aspects of separation from God.
   Friend, if you are reading this today and you are not yet convinced that Jesus is the only way. I would beg you to reconsider. For Jesus cannot be a good man, a good teacher or anything else if his words cannot be trusted. The Bible is clear on this. God himself put on flesh to dwell among us. He died for our sins and rose from the grave on the third day – making the impossible, possible - by closing the gap of separation  that keeps us from God.  But, it is a road you must choose.  You don’t get on it by default.  It is a choice.  Repent of your sin, ask forgiveness and receive God’s good gift today – for heaven is for real!
  “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever (believes, trusts. puts their faith) in him shall not perish but have everlasting life”  John 3:16
   If you have never done this – take that step today – and, let me know, I would love to rejoice with you and pray with you – just note it in the comments section. It captures your e-mail address and I will get back with you.
   “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem they shall prosper who love thee” Psalm 122;6
   Watching and waiting with YOU for the soon return of Jesus!  Cindy

Caught in the Current

The weather is finally warming up here in Northern New Mexico and I had the opportunity to go out walking along the river yesterday afternoon. How different things looked from the last time I was down there just a few weeks ago. Tangled barren branches now sporting new green leaves.  Grass growing thick and wild along the river bank. People out walking, jogging, riding bikes and pushing baby prams.

I have a favorite spot where the water spills over some rocks creating a mini rapids of sorts. I sat for a while yesterday watching a trio of ducks and a piece of wood that was caught up in the fast-moving water. It made an interesting contrast and brought several thoughts to mind as I watched.  The wood  circling round and round in a never-ending cycle –  bobbing into the current and back out again – unable to release itself permanently from the currents strong grasp – this in contrast to the ducks, who smart enough to stay out of the faster moving water paddled freely and placidly about.

It occurred to me as I watched from my position along the  bank how like that piece of  wood I often am. They don’t call it drift wood for nothing. Without arms to swim or feet to paddle, the wood is completely at the mercy of the current. And without a change in water speed or depth, the wood would continue in that same cycle perhaps forever – or until the summer runoff subsides and the water level drops leaving the wood exactly where it was but this time stuck – stuck in the mud and going nowhere.

As I was doing my Bible reading this morning, I thought of these words from the apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 3:17  -

 “…. where the spirit of the Lord is there is freedom”. 

Yes, freedom!  And, as trite as that may sound it is exactly true.  For in and of ourselves, we are powerless to change much about our lives and the situations we find ourselves in. We can try this and try that but, it is only by God that we will find permanent release and change that will last. A thought I hope that will stay with me the next time I find my self “caught in the current” of life.  Less reliance on me and more on the one who has the power to effect a permanent change – after all, it is he who controls the water does he not?

I love how God speaks to us through the simple things, don’t you? It has made a difference in my day today – I hope it has in yours.

Disappointment with God

After seeing the movie “God is Not Dead” yesterday, I was reminded by the quote or rather misquote by Mark Twain, “rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated”. And, so it is with God. No, God is not dead as some would have us believe. Nor is he away on vacation, napping on a cloud or backlogged on prayer requests that he just can’t seem to get to.

Funny the concept people have about God. Most of it a combination of wishful thinking and mythological lore. Kind of like the current Noah movie, more fantasy than fact. Ask a dozen people randomly about God and I am guessing you would get just about as many different answers. Even from Christians. The sad fact is that very little is being taught today about the nature and character of God; which leaves people grasping for an understanding of God that comes not from the Bible, but from their own imagination.  In the aforementioned movie, God Is Not Dead, the college Professor who challenged the Christian student turned out to be less of an atheist than he was a God hater. A man whose disappointment with God at a young age, soon became bitterness and bitterness; hate –  because bitterness left unchecked – like a river running downhill – will always turn to hate for it has no where else to go.

It’s important that we look to the Bible for the true nature and character of God. For God in his true nature will never disappoint. That is not to say that we will always understand why God allows some things. But, this we know. God is good and God is good all of the time.  Not some of the time, but all of the time. And, as his children he always has our best interests at heart. This is the nature of our  heavenly Father; the one our earthly Fathers are patterned after.  And,  while our earthly Father’s may sometimes fail us, our heavenly Father never will.  It is completely impossible and contrary to his nature and to his will to do so.

When we look at things like the horrific mudslide in Washington state, the missing Malaysian plane and the countless numbers of children abused and even murdered on a daily basis, we often wonder where God is. Does God see and does God care?  And, while we sometimes want instant answers, it is the Bible that emphatically assures us that yes; yes, he does. God not only cares, but, cares enough to have intervened on our behalf.

Where you say; where did he intervene?

Think about this. The Bible says that God is light. In him there is no darkness at all.  Before a single candle in a darkened room can even be lit, as soon as the first match is struck, the darkness is dispelled – for darkness can never over power light.  Light will always prevail.

We may not understand all the dynamics but, the Bible is clear.  Jesus, the light of the world has overcome sin and death. And, while God may intervene in specific ways in specific cases, the reality is that he already has. We can never accuse God of doing nothing.

We must understand that God has already accomplished what was needed most. When Jesus said, “It is finished” – he meant exactly that.  It is finished!  No longer would sin and death and evil and trouble have any power over us.  For Christ has triumphed on our behalf.  Do you not see – in Christ, whether we live or die – it’s all the same. Wherever we are, whatever our circumstances found in Him, we are safe. And, that can never disappoint.

All Right, Good Night

Can there be any more normal words than the ones above?  The last recorded words spoken by the pilot of MH370, the missing Malaysian jet.  Without a doubt, these four words have added as much to the mystery of the disappearance of the ill-fated jet liner as anything else.  With hearts broken for the families of the missing passengers and crew, we have all watched the news reports as the experts have speculated from every angle as to what may or may not have happened aboard that aircraft.

Just today, the families of the missing passengers were notified first by text message and then by official announcement that the airliner is most likely lost in the far reaches of the southern Indian ocean. An area so remote that it is astonishing to think that the airliner could have flown so far off course.  Add to that the difficulty of searching some of the most rough, turbulent and deep waters of the world have only added to the frustration.

It is looking likely that the plane did indeed crash in to the sea, perhaps flying until it could fly no more.; running out of fuel until it plummeted in to the watery depths of the remote waters below.  I had thought perhaps (as many others did) that the plane may have been routed to Pakistan or some other hostile country where it was being weaponized for future use. That scenario is looking doubtful now but, given the times we live in anything is possible and I think we can expect to be surprised.  In other words, expect the unexpected.

 A TIME WHEN NO MAN CAN WORK

Jesus had said there was a time coming when no one could work. What did he mean by that?  In John 9:4 it says:

“As long as it is day we must do the work of him who sent me. Night is coming when no one can work.”

There is a time coming when spiritually speaking no one can work.  A time of darkness and no light.  A time when day has passed away in to night just as the missing  plane with it passengers and crew  disappeared in to the early morning hours of the  night following these oh, so normal words –  “All right, good night”.

If you have never trusted Jesus as your Savior, I urge you to do so now. The times in which we live are unprecedented. Bible prophecy is being fulfilled at an alarming rate indicating that there is not much time left – everything is about to change in a dramatic way.  The rapture of the church is on the near horizon and the world is close to being thrust in to darkness. Are you ready?

Take Warning, Take Warning!

Red sky at morning, sailor take warning, red sky at night, sailor’s delight

I’m not sure where this particular saying originated but, it has been long understood that the weather for sailors and just about everyone else, could be predicted with more than a little reliability by just a look at the skies.  When storm clouds gather it is most likely going to rain. We don’t need the weather channel to tell us that.  And, when it comes to prophetic understanding of the word,  the same could be true.  For Jesus himself said, “When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near” Luke 21:28  In other words, be on alert, pay attention. The time for sleeping is past. Be watching and be ready!

This Friday March 28th, the Noah movie will debut in theatres across the country. And, from what I have read it is a disgrace to the Biblical account. Not worth the paper the script was written on.  But, what I do find interesting is the timing of the film. For Jesus has said that in the days just prior to his return it would be as in the days of Noah; people eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage and basically living life to the hilt with little thought to anything beyond their own personal indulgences. Just as it is today. A point the film makes (I believe)  just by being there.  Why NOAH and why now?  To me it is like a big billboard – a gigantic sign saying – pay attention – red sky at morning – take warning, take warning.  A warning that most will not heed.  People like comedian Bill Maher who called God (in reference to the Biblical account of the flood)  a “psychotic mass murderer, who kills babies” – and, this from the mouth of someone who almost certainly support abortion rights – a statement as hypocritical as it is blasphemous.  No surprise, they didn’t listen then and most will not listen now.

How curious and delightful those first rain drops must have felt.  People stopping in the middle of what they were doing to look up.  One drop on the top of the head, another on the tip of the nose – little puddles forming,  splash, splash, splash,   …… plink, plink plink  …. until one drop becomes a million, then a hundred million and more … another and another  until suddenly its a deluge and what was once delightful becomes the worst nightmare one can imagine as everyone and everything is suddenly swept away.

It cannot be by accident that Jesus said, ” When you see these things, stand up and look up, your redemption draws nigh”.  For by the time, the people of Noah’s day began to look up, the rain had already begun to fall -and,  by that time, it was already to late.

Where are you today?  Are you looking up? I hope so. The sky has been red now for a while – take warning, take warning. Be ready, be ready for  Jesus is coming soon!
