Eating, Drinking and Making Merry


Our meeting to pray over our city was cancelled for this Wednesday due to the Flood warnings and evacuation with the upset of so many households. 
This is not a time to stop praying but a time to intercede for our City, our County, our State and our Nation.
May we be watchful over our personal lives, our household and encourage all those we are in contact with to make Jesus first in their lives.   

The concern and fear about our Lake Oroville and the failed Dam Spillway - -  is not over but people are returning home to pack and prepare if another evacuation is called for.  

Eating Drinking and Partying: Our world just finished rejoicing over a Super Bowl Game and the Entertainment Industry with their awards - - but how many are preparing their spiritual suitcase to be ready when Jesus returns to catch away His beloved.

Matthew 24:37-44 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.
“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.

Jesus instructs us to "watch and pray".
Wise words, Hazel.
We don't know when He's returning but He will return.

As usual, you have written and shared and written and shared. I've been very happy re: Noah! I have a song and other things re: him. Made me smile again! Thank you and bless you.
