General Michael Flynn defense fund Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 


If we endure, We shall also reign with [Him].                                                              [2Ti 2:12(a) NKJV]

Blessed and holy [is] he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.  
[Rev 20:6 NKJV]

             Ever wonder why the same minority of church members always show up for corporate prayer, or work days at church, or any other event not featuring free food? I don’t like to think about it because it always lights up nerves better left asleep.

We have a workday scheduled this coming Saturday – carpet cleaning day at the church, and last night I wondered out loud who would show up for it. Then I began ticking off the probable excuses of those who would not (predictably) show up. I guess the point is, every church has its “remnant”, and sometimes it’s a lonely category to be in.

            I hate cleaning carpets. It’s just one of those jobs that I find very tedious, and while I was grousing in my mind, and with my mouth about the few who would probably show up to help, I found myself thinking about it this way: If all I have to do in order to please God is to clean carpets, why ruin it by complaining? And then it occurred to me that this tedium was simply preparing my resume for a job interview in heaven.

            I wonder why we think heaven will be a time of rest and relaxation? Whoever taught that apparently had no grasp of what the scriptures really say. Someone once said that on earth, we are ‘in training for reigning’, and I think that about sums it up, otherwise, why are we still here? This is our prep time for eternity, and wasting it on Monday Night Football or (un-)reality TV, must constitute some kind of criminal negligence. And while being in the remnant is usually a lonely place to be, it is also the only worthwhile place, if we care at all about our later heavenly duties and responsibilities.

            I’m remembering Jesus’ parable about the man who threw a supper party and invited many to attend, but all he was given was excuses why no one could attend, and stupid ones at that. The food was ready, but the guest list was vacant, so the man sent his servant into the byways of society to invite others.

I know the scriptures teach against coveting, but nowhere does it say we aren’t to covet the things of God. If five show up at a table set for ten, guess what? Each one gets twice as much! Without shame, I covet that. If I get there and you don’t, guess what? I’ll eat your food with a smile!

            I’m done with my complaints. Finis!! Saturday I’m serving God by cleaning carpets – I’m only giving up my day…

He gave up much more.

John

  1. You must have tapped into my mind. I often wonder what kind of jobs we’ll have in heaven. I guess I need to expand my work here so I have a better resume’. I’m really looking forward to that Banquet! You won’t get my share. 🙂
