I Sure Wouldn't Want To Be In HIS Shoes!

In these last days, the workings of Satan are just prolific all around us. There has been a palpable change in the atmosphere. Even unbelievers are noticing it. A certain dread in the air as "natural" disasters are occuring all around us.

When I read the following, it was as though I could see the scrunched up face of Satan as he hurled yet another insult at his archenemy, the Messiah of Israel. Well ....I sure wouldn't want to be in the shoes of the man whose lips spoke these words:

Saeb Erekat, senior spokesman for PLO chief Mahmoud Abbas, asserted on Thursday that the "successful" outcome of the land-for-peace process would make a greater impact on the Middle East than that made by Jesus Christ. Erekat, speaking at a conference in Tel Aviv said, "The Israeli and Palestinian leaders who reach an agreement will be more important to the region's history than Jesus."

This reminded me of the following people who are now in their graves:

John Lennon of "The Beatles"
"Christianity will end, it will disappear ....We're more popular than Jesus now. I don't know which will go first, rock 'n' roll or Christianity."
John Lennon was shot six times.

Marilyn Monroe, actress
After hearing what Billy Graham had to say, she said to him:
"I don't need your Jesus."
One week later, she was found dead in her apartment.

Cazuza, bi-sexual Brazilian composer and singer
During a show in Rio de Janeiro, he puffed out some cigarette smoke into the air and said, "God, that's for you."
He died a horrible death at the age of 32 -of LUNG CANCER.

Bon Scott, singer
In one of his songs he sang:
"Don't stop me; I'm going down all the way, down the highway to hell."
Bon Scott was found dead, he had been choked by his own vomit.

Christine Hewitt, Jamaican journalist
She said the Bible (the Word of God) was the worst book ever written.
She was found burnt beyond recognition in her motor vehicle.

Tancredo Neves, President of Brazil
He said if he got 500,000 votes from his party, not even God would remove him from Presidency.
He got the votes, but a day before being made President he got sick and then he died.

William Pirrie, president of the company that built the Titanic
After the construction, a reporter asked him how safe the Titanic would be. With an ironic tone he said: "Not even God can sink it."
We all know what happened to the Titanic on its MAIDEN voyage.

I wouldn't want to be in his shoes either, girlfriend! Will these people never learn? It certainly doesn't look like it, does it?

Nothing will ever eclipse the impact Jesus had on our world... absolutely nothing other than Jesus Himself!

So true, Gayle, nothing eclipses Jesus. Soon we'll see that manifest.

Yes, Leo, I'm a Christian. I've been walking with my Lord more than 30 years now. It has made all the difference in the world in my life. He has changed everything. He rebuilt my shattered world and gave me new life.
