Just glance around..:)
Ha ha, in a TV docu series, Star Wars actor Ewan McGregor and his mates were motorcycling through Tunisia and stopped over at a small Star Wars museum there, walking round minus his helmet and leathers, looking just like the other shirts-and-shorts tourists milling around.
But nobody recognised him, despite there being posters of him on the walls among the memorabilia and stuff, and if they'd just glanced around they'd have seen him standing next to them.
As he left he said to camera with a smile "I was expecting to get mobbed"..:)
The moral?- Same with Jesus; there was the Son of God himself walking around Israel large as life, yet he remained unrecognised by the snooty Jewish priests and many ordinary people.
No wonder he had to tell them to get their noses out of the small print of their heavyweight theological volumes and simply glance up to see him standing right in front of them-
"You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life." (John 5:39)

Hello Wayfarer and thank-you for the similitude,
5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
2 Peter 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
3:11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 3:12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? 3:13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
Revelation 3:3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.
16:13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
16:14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
16:15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.
16:16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
I just thought to add to your morale.
What would Christ take and when would a person know that He had come?
Hey Wayfarer, how come you understand what snooty looks like so well?
I sure would not want to make the same mistake that they made, all arrogant and condemning the Son of God himself, all because He did not fulfill their understanding of the scriptures and they did not want to listen to the Truth.His Faithful Servant

I was never able to find a church that wasn't snooty or just plain bad in one way or another.
For example there's a big modern church near me but it's full of arm-waving Charismatics and tongue-jabbering Pentecostals, it's more like the monkey house at London Zoo than a church.
We don't need churches anyway, Jesus said so.(Matt 6:6)
In fact we're told to avoid the bad ones altogether-
"Bad company corrupts good character" (1 Cor 15:33)
They can't get under Jesus's radar..:)
"Not all who call me "Lord,Lord" will enter the kingdom of heaven. Then I'll tell them plainly, I never knew you, get away from me" (Matt 7:21-23)

A closer examination of the "Casting out demons into pigs" miracle (Matt ch 8)-
DEMONS IN MAN - "Leave us alone!"
JESUS - "On yer bikes, get into them pigs!"
(pigs go bananas and charge over cliff)
SWINEHERD - "Hey! what you done to me pigs?"
JESUS (to Peter) - "Come on mate let's do a runner!"
SWINEHERD - "That's it run off you yob, I know where you live! I'll tell your mam about you"..
(Later at home): MARY - "What you bin doing today?"
JESUS - "Nowt"
MARY - "I heard you done summat to some pigs"..
JESUS - "You heard wrong"
(Police arrive) SERGEANT - "Jesus of Nazareth alias the Messiah, the Christ and the Son of God, I have a warrant for your arrest on charges of animal cruelty, you have the right to remain silent"..
JESUS - "It weren't me, Peter done it!"
SERGEANT - "Wrong sunshine, we've got witnesses"..
JESUS - "Who grassed me up? I bet it was Judas!"..

Hello Mick and thank-you for being the Court jester,
The last laugh is God's when he shows you just how much of a jester you have been but I do have to thank-you Mick for keeping us all entertained, I still can not wait to see the rerun of you and Grandma Tucker that has us all in stitches, wish I could play it for all to see.
Is it ok if I just tell everyone about it?His Faithful Servant

Hello Mick and thank-you for your shortness of memory,
I do not want to post the details as it could be embarrassing and that is not my intention, my intention is to remind you of who you are and what Christ has done to cleanse you from your past to make you clean, so that you could enter the Kingdom of God.
When you adjust your own perspective and know that God wants to do the same for others, then you can afford the same mercy to them that God has shown to you.
Think about the two words "Grandma" and "Tucker" it will come to you.His Faithful Servant

And once I went out with an iron bar to brain the leader of a local street gang and his mates (I had a temper in those days ha ha), but they heard I was after them and wisely lay low, but I honestly can't find any Grandma Tucker in the dark recesses of my memory, can you give me a clue?

You're no fool mate, the Earth itself is the only church we need, the earth is its floor and the sky is its roof..:)
"God, who made the world and everything in it..does not dwell in temples made with hands" (Acts 17:24)
God says- "Heaven is my throne,earth is my footstool,how can you build a house for me?" (Isa 66:1)
"Can anyone hide in secret places so that I cannot see him?" declares the Lord . "Do not I fill heaven and earth?" (Jer 23:24)

Hello Mick and thank-you for your confusion,
You are my best buddy in the time that I am in, which really is no time because there is no time where I am with you, we have opened a door in your memory and the things that you have been hiding will all start rushing back and while now you do not remember, you will remember shortly.
In your future you have such a wonderful presence about you that all enjoy your company and so much more so those that at present you have rejected, the major reason for this is from dealing with the past that I have been talking about with you and coming to a much fuller understanding of how much Love that God had for you and once you understand this you light up like a Christmas Tree in a very darkroom and will do anything to share this love.

Hello Mick and thank-you for your silence,
You just asked me to write you another note, to help continue the process, it seems that your inner child has been locked up for too long and wants to be let out so that is can use it's wings and fly and show forth it's beauty.
Can little Mickie come out to play?

Sorry mate, you're just talking in riddles, I don't know what the demonic voices have been telling you, but remember one thing-
Jesus said of Satan-"When he lies, he speaks his native language, he is a liar and the father of lies" (John 8:44)
Nov 2nd, 2010 8:38 AM #20
Hello Mick and thank-you for your disbelief,
I suggest that you ask me a question that only you know the answer to and I will prove to you beyond a shadow of a doubt that I am speaking the truth to you.
You are suggesting it not be anything that would be embarrassing to you but something totally innocent.
We believe that you are going to enjoy the humour of this when you make your choice for it is your own private joke.

Mate,you put me in mind of Shakespeare's Macbeth, one of the greatest studies of the supernatural ever written.
He consults the 3 witches, and at first they string him along to get him hooked into believing them, then as the play progresses they lead him further down the garden path and drop him right in it.
Too late, he realises they've made a mug of him-"They win us with trifles...And be these juggling fiends no more believed, that palter with us in a double sense.."
In short, it appears demons have got you hooked by feeding you little morsels of what you want to hear (based on your hatred of me that they've planted in your mind).
Remember, you call yourself a Bahai, so be careful you don't give people a wrong impression of Bahaism..;)
You can play your little games with your demonic pals if you like, but I'd just be bored joining in.
In fact me and the readers of this thread are already bored wondering who this "Granny Tucker" is who you keep on about..(yawn)..

Hello Mick and thank-you for your continued skepticism,
The joke is on me!
Your Bestest Buddy,His Faithful Servant
Nov 2nd, 2010 10:03 AM #23
Whoa mate, you implied there was something nasty and shameful lurking in my past concerning somebody called "Granny Tucker" (who I've never heard of), so why don't you tell me and my devoted fans straight out what it was, or they might think you were trying to soil my character with false allegations.
You know "false witness" is a sin don't you?
Be very careful, Jesus said -"Every careless word you speak will be judged" (Matt 12:36)
But if you care to admit you were mistaken, I'm quite prepared to put it down to a "misunderstanding" and forget all about it..;)

Ha ha, you're still implying you have some 'psychic' knowledge that reveals there's some connection between me and the term 'Bestest Buddy' from my childhood and that you have a "vision" of him in me.
If you're fishing for clues, I'm sorry to disappoint you mate,but that means absolutely nothing to me.
You remind me of one of those stage mediums who fish for clues among the audience by saying- "Is there a Charles here?...does the name Charles mean anything to anybody?...Does the letter 'K' means something to anyone here..?
If you dabble in the occult mate that's a big no-no in Gods eyes-
STARGATES by Mick
The Bible forbids "contacting the dead" outright:- "Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritualists, for you will be defiled by them, I am the Lord your God."(Lev 19:31)
This is because seances and spiritualist church meetings,ouija boards etc are "Stargates" through which demons gain entry into our world.
For example the entity that passes itself off as dear departed "Uncle Albert" is simply a demon in disguise.
After all,it's not going to admit "I'm a demon that incites men to murder little girls" is it?
"Satan and his servants can masquerade as angels of light" (2 Cor 11:13)"..
Over the years,innocent dupes who dabble in the occult must have unleashed countless demons into our world, and because they've ignored God's order not to do it, they'll be joining their demon chums in hell..
