One of my notes I shared on facebook about how"When I HOPED I used to pray sometimes for God's will to be done but now I KNOW it is done and thank God that his will IS(and will be) done! When I used to HOPE for God's will to be done all the evil and suffering in this world was a senseless and unfortunate human mistake but now that I KNOW God's will is done evil is still a human mistake but I believe God will use it for good and I know ALL suffering has a good purpose! When I HOPED that God's will is done I would be hurting and depressed when all but the most honorable and christain people died I had heard that you HAD to accept Jesus as your savior in THIS (relatively)short earthly life and while others told me God would "understand" for some cases I suffered, worried, and wondered who would God make exceptions for? "Nice" people? Insanity(all evil is insanity I think)? I figured it was just wishful thinking and even if God made exceptions for some people it was still no comfort to me as long as even one single person would suffer with no end. Now that I KNOW God's will is done(it is God's will that ALL be saved and look it up if you don't believe that already) I do not suffer or fall into depression whenever someone dies or sins and am no longer tortured by hell but my new faith that God's will IS done has taken the "sting" out of death!(it has also given me appreciation of this verse 1 Corinthians 15:55 and others that would have seemed incomprehensible to the old me) KNOW and be thankful that God's will IS(has and will be) done! When has God's will been thwarted before? By sin? Did he not plan for sin? We live in a reality that is ruled by our perfectly wise, powerful, and loving God so why do so many christains think the truth is so terrible and that God's will(for all to be saved) won't be done? To think that our puny human wills could stand in the way of God's will is (to put it bluntly) arrogant and foolish!(I mean no offence to anyone but am I wrong to say that?)" I try to share stuff on facebook and when hell is brought up on or off the internet and try to dispel misconceptions about UR Feel free to share your own UR notes or posts here and offer constructive criticism if you want(I won't take it the wrong way). I may share some more of my notes on this topic.

Its a joint british/australian production. Has some of the understated British flavor to it but still one of the finest films I've seen, in terms of portraying the heart of Christ and how ultimate reconciliation will be achieved.

Just added it to my queue. I'd never heard of it before, but I do like the theme.

If you have an opportunity to see, "The Railway Man", starring Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman, You will never see a more poignant expression of redemption, kolassis, forgiveness and atonement.

It inspired me to write this poem.

The Railway Man

You traced the map of all my scars
Your fingers upon my back
And followed them to the place
Where lonely stars shine
Against the black of night

You walked with me as I found my way
As I rode the rails
Through my tunnel of pain
Through that deep crevasse
You held my hand
Until  we walked together into day

For we laid to rest all that laid us bare
As we buried the hurt with our enemies there
Staring down at us from their cliffs of stone
Sowing seeds of hope only we could share
In that blessed ground
Shame and death atoned.

You traced the map of all my scars
Lines of rage and sorrow
Upon a page stained with tears
That fell like gentle showers
Over the cliffs of stone
Where we wept together
Nevermore alone.

12 O our God, wilt thou not judge them? for we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee.

13 And all Judah stood before the Lord, with their little ones, their wives, and their children.

14 Then upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, a Levite of the sons of Asaph, came the Spirit of the Lord in the midst of the congregation;

15 And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the Lord unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God's.

16 To morrow go ye down against them: behold, they come up by the cliff of Ziz; and ye shall find them at the end of the brook, before the wilderness of Jeruel.

17 Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the Lord with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the Lord will be with you.....................................

20 And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.

21 And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the Lord, and that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the Lord; for his mercy endureth for ever.

22 And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.

23 For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them: and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another.

Very, very sad situation. Thy kingdom come.

I am reading a book titled "They must be stopped" by Brigitte Gabriel.  She describes the atrocities carried out by radical Islam around the world. She gives dire warning of what is coming (and is now spreading) to the western world. A must read for anyone who wants to know the root causes of this horror of radical Islam.

I just watched a video by a man who is involved in humanitarian aid to 350.000 Christians in Iraq and Syria, many of whose numbers have been butchered. Their children are being beheaded, the women. raped, the men, hung or crucified. This man's report was grim and heart breaking.

It was in my heart to pray for these poor souls. I don't want to be a messenger of gloom and doom, but there may come a time in the future when this might be us.

I ask for your prayers and anything you could do, please do. Also, I ask your prayers for Israel. The media have been manipulating the emotions of the masses right now to paint Israel in a very dark light.

Blessings

Shalom  :Peace2:

Jock.
