where will you be on Sunday?

Earlier today I posted this on Facebook : 4 weeks until I am jobless, move back to Miami, find a new job, 6 weeks to find a place to live… unless that dude in Cali is right… then the point is moot… dundundunnn… I was trying to be funny. In my mind it sounded funny. Some people took me seriously.

The reference to the dude in Cali is about Harold Camping. He’s calculated that tomorrow at 6pm Jesus will return, the rapture will take place. In my cynicism, I got caught up in the snarky jokes. He said the same thing in 1994. And still people believe him. I am confident the world is not ending tomorrow because I study the Word of God and believe it is true. I have to apologize for getting in on the joke because the judgement is no joke.

My heart is sad for the people who have believed Harold Camping. I am sincerely hoping and praying when the hour comes and goes their faith in God won’t be destroyed. My heart is also breaking for some old highschool friends who all day long have been making jokes about us crazy Christians. They are not believers. They have no desire to seek God. They don’t think He’s real. They don’t understand that whether by rapture or simply dropping dead, we will all stand before God and be judged. I hope and pray they will hear the truth and be set free.

The world is ending one day at a time, one person at a time. We joke because we can’t face the end. Better to pretend it’s not true. In the famous words of that great rock duo Sonny and Cher, “the beat goes on.”

On a brighter note,the bit about being jobless in 4 weeks and homeless in 6 weeks is true to be sure. But, what’s even truer would be to say in 4 weeks I will be able to take some time off and find a job. In 6 weeks, if I haven’t found a permanent residence, I’ll basically be on vacation in a motel. I confess I am nervous about not knowing where I will work or live next. But I am so excited to be nervous because I am really trusting God to come through. I’m walking by faith this time.

Have a great weekend!

  1. It is sad that people who predict things like this give Christianity a bad name. So many people can’t separate the crazies from the true believers. Not saying those who believe the rapture will be tomorrow are not true believers but they are definitely deceived according to the Bible and according to previous predictions.
    I’m praying about your situation. I know God has it all planned out and just hasn’t let you in on the details yet. Satan will probably try to derail the plans but he is no match for our God.

    p.s. I fixed your link.

  2. The guy in California should read the Bible a bit more closely…”However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows.”
    Keep walking by faith, Micey. And I will pray for you.

    • apparently, he’s gotten around that scripture by saying it is not really for us believers, it is only for those who are not believers. I say, what? it’s crazy how people can just twist the Word of God to mean what they want it to mean.

  3. It is sad that people actually gave away or used up their savings thinking this day was their last. Amazing…. Hope you are able to find a job and place to live with ease!

  4. May God equip you with things above, wisdom, power and authority….
    “He who has God Finds he lacks nothing :God alone suffices.”
    Sweet Blessings…

  5. Yes,it’s sad that people believed this man over the word of God.I will be praying for you.

  6. I’m praying this time will be a time of refreshing for you and rejoicing when God shows you the new chapter in your life.

    Blessings,

  7. Yesterday did come and go… and here we are. What exactly does it mean that ‘He will come like a thief in the night’?
    I’ve never heard tell of a thief that announces his arrival ahead of time. And if the Lord didn’t want us to know the exact time, he’s not going to allow someone to figure it out in the last hour. If Scripture is true, scripture is true…

    What an exciting time. I’m looking forward to hearing what the Lord has in store for you!

    Blessings, Debbie

  8. I thought I’d take this moment to point out that I just bestowed on you a double blessing!

    And since I’m back I’m going to ask you something I’ve been wondering… Is micey a clever nickname? Is there a story behind it?

    (I already double blessed you), Debbie
