His Word Is My Sword. I believe Jesus is coming soon. Don't be as the handmaidens who's lamps ran out of oil. He is coming soon. I believe within the next five to eight years. Be ready and alway listening for the trump of God. And watch the clouds, for he is coming in the clouds.
I put my carry-on in the luggage compartment and sat down in my assigned seat. It was going to be a long flight. 'I'm glad I have a good book to read Perhaps I will get a short nap,' I thought. Just before take-off, a line of soldiers came down the aisle and filled all the vacant seats, totally surrounding me. I decided to start a conversation. 'Where are you headed?' I asked the soldier seated nearest to me. 'Petawawa. We'll be there for two weeks for special training, and then we're being deployed to Afghanistan. After flying for about an hour, an announcement was made that sack lunches were available for five dollars. It would be several hours before we reached the east, and I quickly decided a lunch would help pass the time.. As I reached for my wallet, I overheard soldier ask his buddy if he planned to buy lunch. 'No, that seems like a lot of money for just a sack lunch. Probably wouldn't be worth five bucks. I'll wait till we get to base. His friend agreed. I looked around at the other soldiers. None were buying lunch. I walked to the back of the plane and handed the flight attendant a fifty dollar bill. 'Take a lunch to all those soldiers.' She grabbed my arms and squeezed tightly. Her eyes wet with tears, she thanked me. 'My son was a soldier in Iraq ; it's almost like you are doing it for him.' Picking up ten sacks, she headed up the aisle to where the soldiers were seated. She stopped at my seat and asked, 'Which do you like best - beef or chicken?' 'Chicken,' I replied, wondering why she asked. She turned and went to the front of plane, returning a minute later with a dinner plate from first class. 'This is your thanks.' After we finished eating, I went again to the back of the plane, heading for the rest room. A man stopped me.. 'I saw what you did. I want to be part of it. Here, take this.' He handed me twenty-five dollars. Soon after I returned to my seat, I saw the Flight Captain coming down the aisle, looking at the aisle numbers as he walked, I hoped he was not looking for me, but noticed he was looking at the numbers only on my side of the plane. When he got to my row he stopped, smiled, held out his hand, an said, 'I want to shake your hand.' Quickly unfastening my seatbelt I stood and took the Captain's hand. With a booming voice he said, 'I was a soldier and I was a military pilot. Once, someone bought me a lunch. It was an act of kindness I never forgot.' I was embarrassed when applause was heard from all of the passengers. Later I walked to the front of the plane so I could stretch my legs. A man who was seated about six rows in front of me reached out his hand, wanting to shake mine. He left another twenty-five dollars in my palm. When we landed I gathered my belongings and started to deplane. Waiting just inside the airplane door was a man who stopped me, put something in my shirt pocket, turned, and walked away without saying a word. Another twenty-five dollars! Upon entering the terminal, I saw the soldiers gathering for their trip to the base. I walked over to them and handed them seventy-five dollars. 'It will take you some time to reach the base. It will be about time for a sandwich. God Bless You.'
Ten young men left that flight feeling the love and respect of their fellow travelers. As I walked briskly to my car, I whispered a prayer their safe return. These soldiers were giving their all for our
country. I could only give them a couple of meals.
It seemed so little...
A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check
made payable to "The United States of America" for an amount of up to and including my life.'
That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.'
WE CAN EITHER FIGHT THIS WAR ON OUR SOIL OR THEIRS. WHICH WOULD YOU PREFER?9 AnswersGovernment1 decade ago
I believe it is the right of Americans to have guns. I am a christian and own a gun, but would not use it against another human being. Yet, I wonder what I would do if I witnessed what happened in the below story.
I watched a news clip where a devorced man walked into his ex-wife's place of business and attacked her brutally with a large knife. He was going to kill her.
There happened to be a person in the place who had a permit to carry a gun. The man with the gun yelled for the man to stop stabbing the woman or he would shoot. The man did not so he was shot and killed.
If the man did not have a gun, the woman would have been dead instead of her attacker.9 AnswersCurrent Events1 decade ago
Is a person raised a catholic already a christian or what does he need to do to be christian?22 AnswersReligion & Spirituality1 decade ago
There is an estimated 70% of Americans who lay claim to being a Christian. Yet, when you are most what it is to be born again, few know the answer.
According to the Word of God, there is only one way into the kingdom of heaven and that is to be born again. John 3:5-7
Has most of the Christian faith, the mainstream denominations strayed so far that they cannot even discern what it is that joins all believers into the body of Christ?

Matthew 18:6 but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to stumble, it would be better for him that a huge millstone should be hung around his neck, and that he should be sunk in the depths of the sea.
I heard that the catholics, in hopes to appease the moslems, are contemplating changing the word God to Allah.
Is this true? Can anyone shed some light on the subject with proof?14 AnswersReligion & Spirituality1 decade ago
All those who save their lives will lose them. For all who take the mark of the beast will live until their assigned time to die, but because they ignored the warning in God's Word to not take the mark, their souls will be cast into eternal torment, forever and ever.

Why didn't the people in the days of Noah believe him when he said, water was going to fall from heaven?
Noah was ridicules because he was building an ark in the middle of the desert. He told men that if they did not repent from their sins, God was going to cause rain to fall from heaven and flood the earth.
Why did they refuse to believe him?
