From Gary... Timing is EVERYTHING


When I worked for Degussa, a group of us used to meet in the biocides lab in the morning for the "unveiling". One of the chemists there had a daily calendar from Gary Larson's "Far Side" and made a production out of ripping off a page to read the latest cartoon.  And, sometimes they were VERY FUNNY!!!  One of the members of this little group was a field technical service representative, whose name escapes me for the moment (I will probably remember it before I go to bed tonight).  He had a saying:"Timing is EVERYTHING".  And, to a certain extent this is true. Positively true for the person who took this picture. But, hey, sometimes you are just in the right place at the right time.  The other day, Jay Whalen, who was my next door neighbor when we lived in Jamesburg, NJ, made a comment about one of my posts.  It seemed like "old times" to hear from him and so this morning when I looked at this picture, I was reminded that on Friday evenings about 7 p.m. the planes headed North (to New York City?) would fly over head.  So, we could have possibly taken a shot like the one above - who knows?  Sometimes, the impossible becomes reality and it God's case he can do ANYTHING THAT DOES NOT VIOLATE HIS NATURE!!!  This includes predicting the future and working in ways that are beyond our feeble capability to understand.  Admittedly, some of this is difficult to take in, but read on anyway...

Daniel, Chapter 9
 24 Seventy weeks are decreed on your people and on your holy city, to finish disobedience, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most holy.  25 Know therefore and discern, that from the going out of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem to the Anointed One, the prince, shall be seven weeks, and sixty-two weeks: it shall be built again, with street and moat, even in troubled times. 26 After the sixty-two weeks the Anointed One shall be cut off, and shall have nothing: and the people of the prince who shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and its end shall be with a flood, and even to the end shall be war; desolations are determined.  27 He shall make a firm covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the offering to cease; and on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate; and even to the full end, and that determined, shall wrath be poured out on the desolate. 

Acts, Chapter 1

 1 The first book I wrote, Theophilus, concerned all that Jesus began both to do and to teach,  2 until the day in which he was received up, after he had given commandment through the Holy Spirit to the apostles whom he had chosen.  3 To these he also showed himself alive after he suffered, by many proofs, appearing to them over a period of forty days, and speaking about God’s Kingdom.  4 Being assembled together with them, he commanded them, “Don’t depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which you heard from me.   5  For John indeed baptized in water, but you will be baptized in the Holy Spirit not many days from now.” 


  6  Therefore when they had come together, they asked him, “Lord, are you now restoring the kingdom to Israel?” 



  7  He said to them, “It isn’t for you to know times or seasons which the Father has set within his own authority.   8  But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you. You will be witnesses to me in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the uttermost parts of the earth.” 



  9  When he had said these things, as they were looking, he was taken up, and a cloud received him out of their sight.  10 While they were looking steadfastly into the sky as he went, behold, two men stood by them in white clothing,  11 who also said, “You men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into the sky? This Jesus, who was received up from you into the sky will come back in the same way as you saw him going into the sky.” 


Galatians, Chapter 4
 1 But I say that so long as the heir is a child, he is no different from a bondservant, though he is lord of all;  2 but is under guardians and stewards until the day appointed by the father.  3 So we also, when we were children, were held in bondage under the elemental principles of the world.  4 But when the fullness of the time came, God sent out his Son, born to a woman, born under the law, 5 that he might redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of children.  6 And because you are children, God sent out the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, “Abba, Father!”  7 So you are no longer a bondservant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

Hebrews, Chapter 1
  1 God, having in the past spoken to the fathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways,  2 has at the end of these days spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, through whom also he made the worlds.  3 His Son is the radiance of his glory, the very image of his substance, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purified us of our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;  4 having become so much better than the angels, as he has inherited a more excellent name than they have.  5 For to which of the angels did he say at any time, 

“You are my Son.
Today have I become your father?”

and again, 
“I will be to him a Father,
and he will be to me a Son?”



Bottom line, God said the Messiah would come and HE DID.  Not as an Earthly king as the Jews envisioned, but rather in a very humble way.  I have heard people rail against the Jews of Jesus' day because of the hardness of their hearts, but please try to be a bit forgiving; they just understood incorrectly.  For those who did (and will) correctly  understand, heaven awaits and when we are in heaven, I am sure God will explain everything to us.  But, for now, just realize that God has everything under control and will work things out - in his own time!!!

Young's Literal Translation

The Composite Bible is a effort to understand the Bible by considering it from different perspectives and different levels of literalcy. First, read the World English Bible (the least literal-black text) for comprehension of the text. Next, read both the World English Bible with the Darby Translation (more literal-blue text)to make comparisons and lastly, read all three versions (Young's is the most literal translation- red text) at one time to obtain an overview of the text. Doing this will make you think about what the Scriptures are actually saying and avoid reading in a superficial manner.

1 Corinthians 3

1Co 3:1 Brothers, I couldn't speak to you as to spiritual, but as to fleshly, as to babies in Christ.
1Co 3:2 I fed you with milk, not with meat; for you weren't yet ready. Indeed, not even now are you ready,
1Co 3:3 for you are still fleshly. For insofar as there is jealousy, strife, and factions among you, aren't you fleshly, and don't you walk in the ways of men?
1Co 3:4 For when one says, "I follow Paul," and another, "I follow Apollos," aren't you fleshly?
1Co 3:5 Who then is Apollos, and who is Paul, but servants through whom you believed; and each as the Lord gave to him?
1Co 3:6 I planted. Apollos watered. But God gave the increase.
1Co 3:7 So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase.
1Co 3:8 Now he who plants and he who waters are the same, but each will receive his own reward according to his own labor.
1Co 3:9 For we are God's fellow workers. You are God's farming, God's building.
1Co 3:10 According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I laid a foundation, and another builds on it. But let each man be careful how he builds on it.
1Co 3:11 For no one can lay any other foundation than that which has been laid, which is Jesus Christ.
1Co 3:12 But if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay, or stubble;
1Co 3:13 each man's work will be revealed. For the Day will declare it, because it is revealed in fire; and the fire itself will test what sort of work each man's work is.
1Co 3:14 If any man's work remains which he built on it, he will receive a reward.
1Co 3:15 If any man's work is burned, he will suffer loss, but he himself will be saved, but as through fire.
1Co 3:16 Don't you know that you are a temple of God, and that God's Spirit lives in you?
1Co 3:17 If anyone destroys the temple of God, God will destroy him; for God's temple is holy, which you are.
1Co 3:18 Let no one deceive himself. If anyone thinks that he is wise among you in this world, let him become a fool, that he may become wise.
1Co 3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, "He has taken the wise in their craftiness."
1Co 3:20 And again, "The Lord knows the reasoning of the wise, that it is worthless."
1Co 3:21 Therefore let no one boast in men. For all things are yours,
1Co 3:22 whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come. All are yours,
1Co 3:23 and you are Christ's, and Christ is God's.

hay, straw --

each man`s work will be revealed. For the Day will declare it, because it is revealed in fire; and
the fire itself will test what sort of work each man`s work is.
the work of each shall be made manifest; for the day shall declare [it], because it is
revealed in fire; and the fire shall try the work of each what it is.
of each the work shall become manifest, for the day shall declare [it], because in
fire it is revealed, and the work of each, what kind it is, the fire shall prove;

If any man`s work remains which he built on it, he will receive a reward.
If the work of any one which he has built upon [the foundation] shall abide, he shall
receive a reward.
if of any one the work doth remain that he built on [it], a wage he shall receive;

so as through [the] fire.
