WE WON’T GET ANOTHER NOAH


Its half past midnight, August 3rd present day.  Unbelievably, pleasantly mild outside for summer in Missouri.  There is evidence of an active skunk nearby, hopefully it has not sprayed my Siberian Husky.  I call her Sky, Blackhawk’s Gray Sky is her registered name.

I have many thoughts bouncing around in my head, none related to the other, not directly anyway.   I don’t recall my parents ever giving much thought and concern about the kind of world their children and grandchildren would live.

I have two adult sons and a daughter.  After next month, all will be married. I have  three wonderful grandsons, the youngest born seven months ago, an eight and ten-year old.

With all that is bad and wrong with the world, what will their lives be like?   I know when my parents were growing up and while raising me, the world wasn’t perfect then either.   My father fought in Korea.   It was a violent world long before the present day; just seems like more of it spreading around.   Then again, there were 2 wars that were world-wide.  I guess it’s not much different now than the past after all.

I watched the movie NOAH this evening.   You know the story, a corrupt world being destroyed by our Creator.  God as He is known to me.  Noah’s family was spared to give mankind a fresh, 2nd chance Thanks Noah but we haven’t done so well.  Maybe my children and grandchildren (hoping for a granddaughter some day) along with yours will figure it out.  I’ll pray they do.

  1. Arlin, you have a gift for writing. I felt like I was right there with you as I read your words. I feel the same anguish that you do for my own children and grandchildren, as you well know.

    I selfishly pray that I die before all of this takes place. I know that is selfish. But I don’t think I could stand by and watch my grandchildren abducted and tortured and then killed.

    I feel that when POTUS embraced the Muslim Brotherhood, he opened the door to Jihad terrorists into this country.

    I know what the Bible says and I know what we will have to endure and I am not strong enough to endure. I know that my children are and they have taught my grandchildren about it.

    But my prayer, each night is for Him to just take me now. I am a burden on my family being disabled and I don’t want to be here for what is most definitely coming. We just don’t know when, but it sure looks much sooner than later.

    Sorry to spout off, Arlin. I really do feel that you have a true talent at writing. Thank you for sharing your feelings with the rest of us.

    May God bless you and yours and may
    America bless God!

  2. I can relate to what you are saying here. I have 5 grown children, 11 grand children ages 11 months to 21 years and 1 great grandchild on the way. When my own kids were young I really didn’t worry about what kind of world they would live in. Everyone seemed to have a pattern in life back then. You went to school, got a job, raised your own families, but things aren’t like that anymore.
    My dad was in the Navy in WWII. There are still wars, we just seem to fight them differantly and for differant reasons these days.
    There are no clear patterns of life anymore. I think mainly because this country has lost it’s moral cumpass which leaves our next generations just flapping in the wind on what is right and wrong. I worry for their futures, but even more for their souls.
    We are in days now that are like the days of Noah, corrupt and contaminated, but not hopeless.

  3. ARLIN, THERE IS SO MUCH HOPE AND LIFE THAT OUR MINDS CAN NOT COMPREHEND AT THIS TIME, WE HAVE HOPE AND LIFE BEYOND COMPARE, NOTHING CAN COMPARE. YES THIS WORLD SHALL END AS WE KNOW IT, BUT LOOK AHEAD INTO ANOTHER HORIZON, WHEN YESHUAH HO MESSIAH(JESUS CHRIST) RETURNS, HE SHALL SET UP A KINGDOM OF YAHVEH(GOD) THAT CAN NOT ETERNALLY EVER BE PUT TO RUIN, THERE SHALL NEVER BE ANY MORE CEMETERIES, HOSPITALS, DEATH, NOR EVIL OF ANY KIND. THERE IS THIS FUTURE TO LOOK FORWARD TO, AND THOSE CHILDREN AND PEOPLE WHO ARE DEAD, SHALL INDEED MAKE A COME BACK THROUGH THE RESURRECTION, AND THE CEMETERIES SHALL FOREVER BE EMPTY. WE ARE GOING TO BE ACTIVE IN TAKING PART TO REBUILD THE EARTH AND AS DESIGNATED BY HIM PARTS OF THE UNIVERSE, AS THERE SHALL BE A NEW HEAVENS AND A NEW EARTH, AND ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN. WE ARE NOT GOING TO BE BUMPS ON LOGS IN THE NEXT WORLD EITHER, JESUS CHRIST IS GOING TO GIVE US THINGS TO DO, AND IN A WORLD WHERE THERE IS IMMORTALITY AND NO EVIL. NO LONGER WILL WE HAVE TO KEEP DYING AND REINCARNATING FOR IT SHALL BE A THING OF THE PREVIOUS WORLD. WE DO NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT OVER POPULATION, AS GOD CREATED AN INFINITE AMOUNT OF UNIVERSES AND CAN ALWAYS EXPAND. JUST LET US GET THROUGH THIS WORLD UNTO THE NEXT. KEEP YOUR CHIN UP ARLIN, THERE IS MUCH TO LOOK FORWARD TO AND MUCH TO DO, AS THERE SHALL BE TRUE, GENUINE IMMORTALITY WITHOUT SIN.

    1. What you have to say is hard to read in all caps. I agree that there will be a day when Christ will come but it will be a very bad day for those who don’t name the Name of Christ. The Word of God says the blood will be as high as his horse’s leg as He slaughters all those who have mocked Him and have not accepted His offering of everlasting life. And the host of Hosts will be with Him. That will be those of us who have passed away prior to His return.

      Until then, we have to live in the here and now. Arlin and I both have adult children and grandchildren that we fear for what will they have for an America? It isn’t the same America that we grew up in. It isn’t the same America we raised our children in.

      The Bible says there will be wars and rumors of wars. Well we have had both. We are in the birth pangs of the end times; of this there is no doubt. But the time between the Anti-Christ and the Holy Christ will be hell on earth and it looks so much like it will be radical Islamist terrorists that will take over, and Obama opened the door. He embrace the Muslim Brotherhood which was opening the door.

      All we can say now is Come Lord Jesus!

      2. You think you get your point across but in Internet terms ALL CAPS is yelling and then people just pass by those kind of posts. You are free to do what you want, I just wanted you to be heard because I actually read your hard to read post. Do as you feel is right.
