While I was making my sandwhich, someone knocked at the door. I answered it while restraining Barley and holding a butter knife covered with cream cheese and mustard. A man and lady about my age, dressed nicely asked if i would read a passage from Matthew 24.
And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come
Then the man asked if I had thought about what God’s Government should be doing regarding this passage. Whose government?!? Doing? I was confused, Barley wanted desparately to lick them, and there was now dog hair stuck to the mustard on my knife.
The wanted to read me some more, but I was making lunch. I thanked them for sharing and said goodbye. I wish they had mentioned who God’s Government was. I wonder how they interperate the lines before the one they read:
5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
