The Sun Began to Rain Larry Norman

A thief fell out of heaven with some loaded dice
But the lamb rolled a seven back to paradise.
The bread was finally leavened so I had a slice
And the sun began to rain.

Water swelled from fountains and then turned to wine,
Rocks fell from the mountains in a chorus line;
He came in tails and top hat and He looked so fine,
Yes the Son began to reign.

A fox snuck in to steal away the grapes,
But the man who ran the vineyard shut the gate,
So he could not escape.

And now we’ll live forever in another land,
Everything is ending like it first was planned.
Did you get your invitation to come play in the band
And let the Son begin to reign.

Song and singing by Larry Norman

Books of the Bible Puzzle

Here is a puzzle on the books of the Bible for you to try:

There are sixteen names of the books of the Bible hidden in the paragraph below. Try to find them all.

I once made a remark about the hidden books of the Bible. It was a lulu – kept people looking so hard for facts, but for others it was a revelation. Some were in a jam, especially since the names of the books were not capitalized. The truth finally struck home to numbers of people but for others it was a real job. I want it to be a most fascinating few moments for you. Yes, there will be some real easy ones for you to spot. Others may require judges to help them. I will quickly admit it usually takes a very smart person to find one of them, and there will be loud lamentations when it is found. One little lady says she brews a cup of tea to help her concentrate. See how well you can compete. Relax now, there really are 16 names of books of the Bible!

(I found this in a truck stop. Author was anonymous.)

Why the world hates you

“Do not marvel if the world hates you. It hated me, so it will hate you also.”

Why might the world hate us? Because we are not of the world. An example of how we are not of the world, is that we are not proud of our possessions, nor are we impressed by other people’s possessions. This really bothers people of the world. They really, really want you to be impressed with the girlfriend they have, or the husband they have, or the car they have, the job they have, etc. If you are not impressed, they really, literally, hate you.

They are “haters of the good people.” They hate you because you are good.

1 John 2:14-16: “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If someone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. Because all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of possessions, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passes away, along with the lust of it, but whoever who does the will of God abides for ever.”

1 Peter 4:4 “Wherein they think it strange that you do not join them in the same flood of debauchery, and they speak evil about you:”
