Frodo My Bad Boy Went Home To Heaven. See you Soon Modie!!!
The Senior Member of the Peanut Gallery is ready to go HOME NOW!!!
...we attended a very small country church...just down the alley from our house...for years.
Once during alter call...with every head bowed...and every eye closed.....
In walked "Dinky" our dog...
The church always kept the side door open...for natural "air conditioning"..
I happened to glance up...and there he went...right to the front...
EVERYONE ...collapsed in laughter...and I had to slink to the front and grab him...
we walked up the alley...and he DID seem to be a changed dog...
I don't hold out much hope of meeting up with him in Heaven...
a terrific old dog...but not created in the image of GOD.....
This would actually be funny if it weren't true...they want to even declare personhood to peas.
Mods please delete the link if the dailycaller isn't allowed.
Proverbs 20:12. But here's the catch. We can't have this unless we place all our heart, trust to Yeshua, the Lion of Judah.
I certainly believe God can remake our beloved animals. They may not have worth to some people but I believe they do to God. Look at how He said they were to be treated in the OT, so many laws to ensure their good and our kindness to them. Reading that long ago is one thing that showed me His heart and made me fall in love with Him.
We'll see soon enough!
"...earnestly contend for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints." Jude 1:3b
Jesus + something = nothing
Jesus + nothing = Everything
I thought Christians will be gone in the Rapture and therefore, hearing the Trumpet will be for those that were left behind. We will be coming back with the Lord when the Trumpet sounds... am I wrong?
I talk to my pets all the time about Jesus. Jesus said to "preach the gospel to every creature" (Mark 16:15). The Bible also says that "the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly awaits the revealing of the sons of God" (Romans 8:19) I know that animals don't have the Holy Spirit but they do seem to be aware. Look at Balaam's donkey.
I liked the idea that right after the Rapture, God gently puts our pets to sleep. Who knows?
If Biblical precident means anything, I think our beloved pets will hear the trumpet and come with us in the rapture. Israel's animals traveled in the desert everywhere the Israelites went for 40 years.
Numbers 10:2 Make thee two trumpets of silver; of a whole piece shalt thou make them: that thou mayest use them for the calling of the assembly, and for the journeying of the camps.
Exodus 19:13 ...when the trumpet soundeth long, they shall come up to the mount.
If I may wax philosophical, Israel wandered the desert 40 years waiting to go into the promised land. The church is currently wandering the planet earth, which is becoming more and more like a harsh desert to us. It is only by the power of the Living God that the church continues to survive against great odds and temptations. When it was time for Israel to assemble to move on, a trumpet was sounded. The church is the assembly of believers. At the sound of the trumpet, we are going to gather together with our Lord in the sky. We will assemble in the sky.
Paul doesn't mention a second trumpet that will be the signal for us to move out, to go up to the mount which in our case will be the Father's Kingdom, but I won't be surprised to hear a second trumpet. The sounds of trumpets and shofars were too important in the Bible to deny the possibility that a second trumpet will announce that it's time to move out of this world of trouble and confusion, and onto heaven.
Israel expected to hear the trumpet, they knew what it meant. It was no surprise when they heard it, they knew they would be moving on. I wouldn't be at all surprised if at the time we hear the trumpet call we are waiting for, if rather than be scared by it, the Holy Spirit in us leaps for joy, because for us, that will be one of the most joyous moments I can imagine.
My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.
For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; the flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; the fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.
Baruch haba b'Shem Adonai!
Don't panic! Just be Rapture Ready.
I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.
I don't see why animals wouldn't hear the trumpet. BTW, I firmly believe our favorite animals will be in Heaven. Here are some verses to encourage those who are worried about whether their pets will go to Heaven.
Gen 1:24 And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind.” And it was so. God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. [see Ps 84:11]
Ps 84:11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.
Ps 36:5-6 Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies. Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the great deep. O LORD, you preserve both man and beast.
Psalm 37:4 Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
Ps 50:10-11 for every animal of the forest is mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills. I know every bird in the mountains, and the creatures of the field are mine.
Ps 84:1-3 For the director of music. According to gittith. Of the Sons of Korah. A psalm. How lovely is your dwelling place, O LORD Almighty! My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young-- a place near your altar, O LORD Almighty, my King and my God.
Ps 104:27-28 These all look to you to give them their food at the proper time. When you give it to them, they gather it up; when you open your hand, they are satisfied with good things.
Is 11:6 The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them.
Matt 6:10 your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Luke 12:6 Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God.
Rev 5:13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.
Rev 19:14 The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean.
"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matthew 6:19-21 ______
Do you guys remember all of those sounds that the world was hearing in the skies back in Jan of this year? This thread reminded me of those. There's a whole bunch of Youtube videos. What was all of that about?
John 13:34-35 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.Matthew 5:23-24 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.
