attitude God Joan Winifred time trust

“And they took no note until the flood came and swept them all away,

So the presence of the son of man will be.” (Matthew 24:39)

Note to Self… how will i do just so (like Noah)… when people (scoffingly) tell me no?!

Ahhh…Keeping On the watch for Prophetic Patterns…:)

Compared to God, man in powerless to peer into the future. “Do not make your boast about the next day,” wrote wise King Solomon, “for you do not know what a day will give birth to.” (Proverbs 27:1) That observation is still true. No human can foresee even his own future. What makes God different? He completely understands everything he has created, including the nature and inclination of man. When he chooses to do so, God can foresee exactly how individuals and entire nations will act. Further, he has unlimited ability to control the outcome of events. When he foretells through his prophets that something will occur, he becomes “the One making the word of his servant come true, and the One that carries out completely the counsel of his own messengers.” (Isaiah 44:26) Only Jehovah God can truthfully make that statement.

Isaiah lived more than 700 years before Jesus, the Messiah. Yet, Isaiah prophesied about the coming of the Messiah. Particularly from the 18th century on, however, critics of the Bible have attacked the authenticity of the book of Isaiah. They have claimed that Isaiah’s prophecies were not truly predictive but were written after the fact, a later writer merely recording what had already happened. Is that true? In 1947 a copy of the book of Isaiah was discovered, along with other ancient scrolls, in a cave near the Dead Sea. Scholars determined that this copy was made more than a hundred years before the birth of the foretold Messiah, or Christ. Yes, the Bible revealed the future!

Isaiah and other Bible writers could not have foretold future events based solely on their own insight. Rather, they “spoke from God as they were borne along by holy spirit.” (2 Peter 1:21)
[excertped: Who Can Know the Future? w ’08]

Noting…IF we cannot fully understand/know our past, how can we predict the future??
Man can remember, recall or recant his own past or human’s history in debatable varying degrees of accuracy…however, when it comes to the future…i put trust in God.:)…(“who cannot lie.”)

(Those who have lied about the past…i do NOT trust to tell the truth about the future.)

The END of Framework (Part 1)

Joan Winifred time world

Today is Tuesday, September ooopps…duh, sorry, am sleepy/slightly stressed;  mean, O-c-t-o-b-e-r 3, 2017. 🙂

October 5, 6, and 7th…have special significance to me (as fellow-fragile-life, as a woman and as a Bible student, etc. insert whatever description that specifies me, joanie w, aka boney, freckled-face learner.)

I have special events coming up. So, my priorities have shifted.

We all do that… have priorities at certain times and then we jumble, juggle, shift them/things around accordingly.

What I want/hope to accomplish at the beginning of the week or day is definitely different by the end of the week or day, eh??

{(My priorities as a teen or in my twenties/thirties have changed approaching 50. Though, spiritual things/my spirituality–must admit– has always been a Top priority for me since childhood. Go figure? Yep, i am a weirdo-lol;) and hopefully, a compassionate/lovable/likable one…contributing something useful to the planet and fellow-fragile-life.}

When a particular dead-line is fast approaching sometimes we kick it, kick into HIGHER gear to get whatever done/finished in time…before it gets too late. Most of us like to have things to look forward to which serve as an intermediary incentive/reward/i.e. piece of  YUMMY chocolate… persuading/pressuring our time usage.  After writing this blog, I will want to get some late breakfast or early lunch, huh?

When the end of the day is fast approaching what do You do??
When the end of the work-week is approaching what do You do??

When the end…(insert whatever here) is approaching what do You do??
Depends, huh?? On what is ending… is it a serious something?! Or a silly something?!;)

When the end of your fleeting youth or the end of your entire life…

When the end…. of the world… is approaching what do You do??…” End of the World” ??? “Kosmos”

Stay Calm & (Check it out please)… (then act with accurate knowledge as your prod.)

To know when the end of the world will happen, it is necessary to understand how the Bible uses the term “world.” The Greek word koʹsmos, usually translated “world,” most often refers to the world of humankind, especially the part that is out of harmony with God and his will. (John 15:18, 19 “If the world hates you, you know that it has hated me before it hated you. 19 If you were part of the world, the world would be fond of what is its own. Now because you are no part of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, for this reason the world hates you.” ; 2 Peter 2:5 “And he did not refrain from punishing an ancient world, but kept Noah, a preacher of righteousness, safe with seven others when he brought a flood upon a world of ungodly people.”) At times, koʹsmos refers to the framework of human society.—1 Corinthians 7:31 “and those making use of the world as those not using it to the full; for the scene of this world is changing.” ; 1 John 2:15, 16 15 “Do not love either the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him; 16 because everything in the world—the desire of the flesh and the desire of the eyes and the showy display of one’s means of life*(bragging about one’s possessions)—does not originate with the Father, but originates with the world.”

The phrase “the end of the world,” which appears in many Bible translations, can also be rendered as “the conclusion of the system of things,” or “the close of the age.” (Matthew 24:3; English Standard Version) It refers, not to the destruction of the earth or of all humanity, but to the end of the framework of human society.—1 John 2:17. [excerpted reading article: When Will The World End? (my colored highlights)]

All of us-fellow-fragile-life are directly or indirectly affected by the framework of human society.

What will the end of this framework (of human society) mean for me??
