Seriously, something is wrong with me. I am doing a modified “7” program where you go a little easy on the excess in your life.
I made a vow to only use re-usable bags at the grocery store. I told myself if I made it to the cash register without my re-usable bags I would have to REFUSE the plastic bags and figure something else out. Well, I go to the grocery store once a week and for the past few weeks I have forgotten my bags. My groceries (yes I am keeping to my dairy and fruit and vegetables only) are on the belt to get checked out and WHAM I remember my bags – still sticking out of the side door of my car like spider legs, brushing against my arms as I drive, and literally HITTING ME IN THE FACE as I step out of the car and STILL I can’t seem to get it into my brain that they are NOT for decoration.
I bought an easter bag the first week.
I bought a reusable “keep foot hot and cold for up to 3 hours” bag the next because I DON’T NEED ANYMORE CLOTH BAGS. (I may have broken my “don’t buy anything for a month” rule. You decide.)
What I really want to talk about is this hot and cold bag. It says, “Saving the Planet One Bag At A Time.”
Well, I might not be saving the planet (don’t believe that jazz) but I am respecting it before the angry FIRE BALL from heaven comes down and zaps it back to “without form and void” like it says in Genesis. Yes, you got me right. The planet is going back to being null and void. Zippo. Nada. Bye bye all you Planet Saving Bags.
I am doing a little research on Genesis, which is why I am mentioning this null and void thing. I have finished writing my Revelation Bible Study. Currently, I’m trying to get it published. Now, my bright idea is “creation.” I am real sick of the evolution/creation debate. I have my opinion on what happened, not that I was there, but based on scritpure. What really gripes me is the people who don’t want to look at the other side. I want to study what the evolutionist say, I want to study what the creationists say, and quite frankly everywhere in between, including intelligent design and the “gap” theory. One side shouln’t be afraid the other side will “prove them wrong” because the truth is the truth. If you are scared of the truth you are scared of Jesus – because He is the truth. Amen.
So, here I go, up to my neck in Gap Theory jazz and I ran across Jeremiah 4:23-29. Highly interesting. See what you think. . .
“I looked on the earth and behold it was formless and void; and to the heavens, and they had no light. I looked on the mountains, and behold, they were quaking. And all the hills moved to and fro. I looked and behold there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens had fled. I looked and behold the fruitful land was a wilderness, and all its cities were pulled down before the Lord, before His fierce anger. For thus says the Lord, the whole land shall be a desolation, yet I will not execute a complete destruction. For this the earth shall mourn and the heavens above be dark, because I have spoken, I have purposed, and I will not change My mind, nor will I turn from it. At the sound of the horseman and bowman every city flees; they go into thickets and climb among the rocks; every city is forsaken, and no man dwells in them.”
This is talking about the second coming of Christ, when the FIRE BALL is coming down from heaven. It is going to be SO bad that the earth will be “formless and void.” But guess what? The last time God called the world “formless and void” a few days later, Adam and Eve were walking into Eden.
“And the land is like the garden of Eden before them.” Joel 2:3
“And her wilderness He will make like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the Lord.” Isaiah 51:3
After the destructive FIRE BALL, we will be walking into EDEN. Sorry all you “save the earth” people. You don’t have a chance of saving the earth. The FIRE BALL is a-comin’. But Daddy? Daddy has a plan. He wants to send that FIRE BALL down to purify the world and to turn it back into Eden.
Can you imagine walking into Eden? WOW-SERS!
And have no fear, we arn’t here for the FIRE BALL. But those planet saving bags will be.
Kinda makes me giggle.
