It looks like we have gone past the point of no return on several issues. I wrote an article "Christians against global warming" to stir things up. The more mankind misbehaves the closer we are from the hand of God being revealed. Those who do not want to belong to Christ will continue to deny even the existence of God and we have been warned that it would be so.
2010 will be more challenging than 2009 as we will have to learn to live by faith not by sight. Then again the end times may not take place in this generation's lifetime and so we have to bear a good witness and make every moment of our lives count.
Time magazine thinks F.Castro will die which is a pretty lameass prediction to make about a unwell older guy. They also predict that H.Chavez will be overthrown which is a less lameass prediction. I predict that the rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain.
Oh and Jesus told me to tell Texan, "a ball for ball". He said Mark would be justified to kick your ass if he felt inclined to do so. He also said consider yourself lucky that Mark doesn't believe in me...
Perhaps should explain. Have not invented a new expletive. Ooglies is a great stop-motion animation programme for kids (and big kids too) in which everyday objects come to life to do battle with each other. I can't stop watching it at the moment. Hope it will be finding its way over the Atlantic soon!
Reality insists I accept the high probability that 2010 will greatly resemble 2009 in terms of troubles, murders, drugs, hate, death, and mishaps. Evil is just as present today as it was yesterday. Satan is still the prince of this world. Even in 2010, man’s inhumanity to man will continue; we will treat each other badly and bring each other down. Even in 2010, we will be victims of racism, sexism, jealousy, envy, hatred, malice, oppression, and all kinds of abuse. Even in 2010, we will still have to cope with physical illness and handicaps; traffic accidents and freak accidents and accidents of nature.
For Christians, it really does not matter what lies ahead in the days ahead, we rest assured, El Shaddai knows and has it all under His divine control.
Atheists will (pray?) for the Rapture to take all the believers out so that the human race will finally be without hate, murder, intolerance, child abuse and every other "evil" they blame us for. But of course their "god" does not answer prayer, so it may or may not happen.
On a more serious note, I have to agree with RevLady. Business as usual, generally speaking. I do however expect better things in 10 that I had in 09, but I will take whatever He wills for me.
Merry belated Christmas to all, and a Happy and prosperous New Year too.
I predict my dream as a Travel Journalist will begin as early as February and I will meet a wonderful, creative artist that loves the Earth and can do with less material and is very much a gentleman...(really tired of standing by my car door only to watch my date walk to the drivers door and jump in) very sad.
I predict some will be born and some will die. Some will be banned and some will not. Winter will end and spring will begin. The weather forecasters will be wrong most of the time but will still get paid. We will have elections and someone will be unhappy about the outcome. The sun will shine and the rain will come. The flowers will bloom and the leaves will fall. We will be asking many of the same questions a year from now and I will be wishing everyone a Happy New Year! once again.
