Bless you brother Staff! The way some post tribbers act reminds me of 2 incidents the Lord mentioned in the gospels. I will list them.
Matthew 20:8 So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first.
9 And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny.
10 But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny.
11 And when they had received it, they murmured against the goodman of the house,
12 Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day.
13 But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny?
14 Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee.
15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good?
16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.
John 21:18 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.
19 This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me.
20 Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee?
21 Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do?
22 Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me.
23 Then went this saying abroad among the brethren, that that disciple should not die: yet Jesus said not unto him, He shall not die; but, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?
Isnt the Lord awesome, I tell you I just want to follow Him and Love him with all my being? Oh I want to try and get as close as I can to Him and be filled with His fullness and to love Him supremely, believing He is a good God and delights to give good things to His children who walk uprightly before Him. He is so awesome, so mighty and so lovely. We should be praising him for his goodness all the time. Expecting good things from the Lord all the time even in the valley God is good. He is so good we just dont know how good but we cant praise him enough. Thank God we can get His grace instead of what we deserve for all the times we didnt see how good He really is, and when we are afraid lets flee to the Lords great love for us and trust in Him.
Blessings to all!
