Today was predicted to be Judgment Day by Harold Camping; a controversy even within those who believe in Judgment Day. Harold is an evangelist from California who says that God was returning today to judge the just and the unjust…those who would go to Heaven and those who would go to hell. Many have joked and many have mocked. It has gotten a lot of attention.
The problem is that IF today is not the day (most Christians have dismissed it as THE day because scripture says no man knows the day or the hour…not even Jesus Christ…only God the Father knows); many people will continue to think of Judgment Day as merely the title of a movie or a theory of religious zealots. The majority of Christians have stepped away from, not only this prediction of day and time, but those of others who have predicted Judgment day in the past.
I have heard that Jesus is coming soon most of my life…however, soon is a matter of opinion. I DO believe that Jesus is the son of God and that he is returning for those who believe in him and those who are serving him on a daily basis…living their lives according to what the scriptures tell them to do to be Holy. Already the news people are moving the story to the back of the page. The story mentions that are appearing now in reports and articles, are that the Rapture has not happened on the other side of Earth where it is already May 22, 2011.
You need to read the Bible if you are truly interested in the End Times. There are people who don’t know what the signs to look for are. Wars and rumors of wars, natural disasters, politcal unrest around the world…these things are happening now. There are other signs as well. Our world is going to end and there WILL be a new Heaven and a new Earth…but, you must read the Bible or consult with a Bible Believing counselor, pastor or advisor who is learned about the subject.
The Bible says be not fooled by false teachers and prophets, or those who promise peace…many will want to believe because the world is so troubled; but that is when the anti-Christ will appear and seem so able to handle things promising and doing things that people will be fooled by. Read the word and be informed.
It is no joke…one day..again…no one knows the day or the time…God is coming back for those who have confessed that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of all who believe. Are you ready? If you have sins in your life…or your life has areas that need dealing with and cleaning up…talk to God. Got problems that feel too big to handle, or a feeling of emptiness that just can’t get filled up with all the things that the world has to offer? Been abused, abandoned, hurt or been the one doing those things? God can fix it all, if you give him a chance. Get your heart right…open the doors of communication through prayer and tell God that you are ready for him to come into your heart and make it right.

I know people who are struggling, people who have cut back in every conceivable way to save money just to stay afloat. I also know people who are living very comfortably in nice homes, with fancy vehicles, going out to eat regularily and have no worries when it comes to bills or their health. The world definately has classes of people who are in the haves and the have nots. There is also a large population of people who are somewhere in the middle. The thing is…we all have things that we could share. Blessings come in many packages.
Everyone of us has gifts, talents, finances, possessions, strengths, knowledge or time that we could share with others. What I love to celebrate and learn about are those who share those blessings with others without thought or expectation of getting something back from that experience of sharing.
Our society is going through some amazingly challenging times…people are struggling. We need to be aware of others around us who are in need…those who could use a little pick me up. It could be a kind word, a nice deed, financial gift, or it could be a sharing of knowledge that could bring a positive change to another. There is a spiritual attitude that I love, it says this: “Those to whom much is given, much is expected in return”. I call that an attitude of gratitude; being thankful for all that you have been blessed with and a willingness to share it with others! I challenge you to find some way to bless others in your daily life. Consider this a compassionate call to action…what can you give to others with no strings attached?

This weekend was certainly an eye-opener for me regarding teen activities when parents aren’t around. I work with youth all of the time, I am the parent of 6 children-three of which are adults and three are under the age of 18. I took my younger three children, plus 3 ten year old girls to the movies with my husband to celebrate the 10th birthday of my youngest child. I took them to a family movie-a PG movie. It should have been safe right? Wrong!
The movie was fine…don’t get me wrong here…the problem was a couple of audience members. We were seated in the back of the small theater because of the size of our group…there were 8 of us. We were spread out because the teens didnt want to sit with mom and dad (of course) and the girls didn’t want to sit with the teen boys (of course) and so we took up the end seats of three rows. A group of three teens approached my teen boys, who happened to be in the last row in the back, and asked them if they would mind moving down to the end the line. They did move with no fuss. There were two girls and a boy; no parental guidance, I might add.
As the movie began, so did the engines of one of those girls and the boy. Right from the get go, it was obvious why they wanted my sons to move farther down the line and to the inside wall of the theater. They were not interested in the movie shall we say. They were there for one reason only…even though they had a chaperone…a female of about the same age. What age is that, you may ask? Well, they appeared to be all of about 12 or 13…at the most 14 years of age. Understand what I am saying here…they were approximately two to four years older than the birthday girl and her friends.
