Things to Consider

It is so pleasant to be back in Texas. We have just returned from vacation in Destin, Florida. Had a wonderful time, first day there we had a wonderful time with our great grandchildren, the next morning went snorkeling, the second day suffered with muscle pain of 8 on a scale of 0 to 10, ten being the greatest. Third day tried to snorkeling again, almost drowned due to extreme weakness of all my muscles, my son and grandson helped me back to shore, setting down to enjoy the beautiful bluish green water and our great grandchildren play in the sand, I didn't notice that the sunblock rubbed off of my feet due to the fine sand that coated my feet as I put on my fins, after a few minutes my feet became the color of a ripe strawberry. Rested the next day while family organized a four-hour fishing boat trip for Thursday the toes were pink and the upper part above my sandal had a shape that looked like a large strawberry on top of each foot. That Thursday four of us boarded a small fishing boat. Off to fish we went, four hours later we headed back to shore with our four medium size mackerel, these fish cost about $200.00 each. The next day the pain of the sunburn was tolerable, so I rested up for the 500+ mile trek home the next day. All in all, this was my best vacation ever, because we thoroughly enjoyed our time with our children, grandchild and great grandchildren, Next time I think that I’m going to suggest buying the fish LOL. 

 Now to get to this week’s article.  Last week I mentioned that our moon turned out to be much older than originally thought to be. Now consider Genesis 1-1 that was penned about 1450 to 1400 BC. In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. We as man took this to mean that around 1400 years BC the earth was created, we didn't consider that the time of creation was in Gods time not mans. We have to understand that God does things in the order that He sees fit. Have you ever considered that the earth has three earth ages? The first earth age was any time before God inserted man onto the earth, “IE” the time of the dinosaurs. The second earth age is this present time where mankind inhabits the earth as the children of God. The third earth age is to come into existence whenever all prophecies have come to pass. This new earth age shall be entered into by mankind, not in our perishable bodies, rather our spiritual bodies, this third age will last 1000 years, known as the day of our Lord, coming at the end of that 1000 year period will be the Great White Throne Judgment as recorded in Revelations 20: 11-12, “And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God, and the books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged out of those things which written in the books, according to their works.”   This is written so we will know the “WORD OF GOD” IS true always study to show thyself approved. As always Roger and Donna Harding.
