THE STRUGGLE AND THE SAVIOUR

Hello again folks! We have just have a precious few hours visitation with our good friends Dave and Christine Hall of Living Waters Ministries Cyprus of: http://livingwatersministiescyprus.blogspot.com/

We've talked about various subjects [naturally!] but one recurring theme is the sense of humour of the LORD and the oft last minute timing of His interventions. This [naturally!] reminded this writer of this story; which has so very many levels and truths within it for all of us to consider:

A man was swimming in the sea and got into some difficulties. Folks gathered on the sea shore and several waded in and tried to reach him but - alas - without success. Some rang the Coastguard; but in no way were they going to be here in time. The man kicked and splashed desperately trying to keep his head above the water but the currents and rip tides were winning the battle for his very life. Just when all was lost; a Jewish guy appears and rows out to the forlorn fellow - at His own pace. And just as the man goes under for the last time; the Jewish guy pulls him up out of the water and into His boat. Later; safely back on shore; a bystander asks the Jewish guy why He waited so long to intervene. His answer was: "He was too busy struggling for Me to save him!"

DECEPTION is the name of the game in the Last Days. Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

God bless you and God bless Israel ... KJS ... 16-Aug-2011
