Feelin’ In My Bones? July 25, 2010Posted by stevekerp in Uncategorized.
I’ve been here before, so I don’t know why this is getting so difficult. I just can’t put words on paper, so to speak. (“Paper” – how quaint!)
But you know what I mean, I would hope. My ears are yearning to hear that trumpet blast; the voice of the archangel. “Behold! The Bridegroom cometh!” (that is, if archangels speak antiquated English).
The bills are more-or-less paid. The house is more-or-less clean and it’s a hot but lazy Sunday afternoon. As I write, it has been “officially” the 15th of Av for about an hour in Jerusalem, though I thought the official beginning was at sunset. Oh, well … that doesn’t seem to speed things up anyway.
So I’m puttering a bit with my web page, praying somewhat casually, and playing with Clyde, my cockatiel. For the rest of my family, it’s just another Sunday afternoon and the threshold of another week that will probably be indistinguishable (they now think) from almost every other week we’ve endured during this hot summer.
The moon will be “officially” full in just over 3 1/2 hours. I keep checking. Shouldn’t we expect Him at midnight? If that’s Jerusalem time, it’s gonna be another 23 hours.
I can’t stand it.
Got a note from Robert who noted that this is supposed to be like in the days of Noah when they were eating, drinking and giving in marriage. Isn’t Tu B’Av a really popular day for folks to get married? He thinks so, and points out that wedding receptions commonly involve lots of eating and drinking.
The moon will be full in 3 hours and 25 minutes.
I emailed out a link to the song “Abba, Father” which I think has particularly appropriate lyrics. I’ve littered songs like Easter eggs through the Homework page; not too hard to find.
I find it hard to imagine a day with more pointers that this one. EVERYTHING about the 15th of Av seems to line up. If we’re still here in 22 hours and 45 minutes, I will probably have a hard time getting excited about any other day. Even Trumpets seems a less-likely candidate.
But we will persevere. For some reason — perhaps just premature resignation — I’m expecting to do a program tomorrow. I have a couple people who want me to design web sites for them and, of course, the ongoing commitments to my loving mother-in-law and the somewhat odious demands of my “other life.”
But I’m certainly not complaining. The only problem with the other life is that I can’t leverage my efforts toward the kingdom. My employer wants MONEY … not any discussion of politics or religion, if you please. And since our Babylonian system sees Jesus as an intrusion to their pursuit of their REAL “god” …. well, we’ve all lived in Babylon long enough to know the last lines of that verse.
Ultraguy’s on this Four Horsemen thing (I think). The dead in Christ will rise first, and some think this will be accompanied by a great earthquake, or perhaps several. So batten down the hatches — just in case — and keep watching. In any event, we’re one day closer.
P.S. I’ve kinda got that Feelin’ In My Bones (lyrics here) and just got a copy of the “Crawford Perspectives” newsletter (thanks, Tom) that extrapolates current signs to an “ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE” series of events beginning at 1:04 PM Eastern time TODAY. So a 1:05 rapture event should work out nicely. Hope to see you then.
