Psalm 62

Psalm 62

Song of Trust in God Alone

To the leader: according to Jeduthun. A Psalm of David.
For God alone my soul waits in silence;

from him comes my salvation.

He alone is my rock and my salvation,

my fortress; I shall never be shaken.

How long will you assail a person,

will you batter your victim, all of you,

as you would a leaning wall, a tottering fence?

Their only plan is to bring down a person of prominence.

They take pleasure in falsehood;

they bless with their mouths,

but inwardly they curse. Selah

For God alone my soul waits in silence,

for my hope is from him.

He alone is my rock and my salvation,

my fortress; I shall not be shaken.

On God rests my deliverance and my honor;

my mighty rock, my refuge is in God.

Trust in him at all times, O people;

pour out your heart before him;

God is a refuge for us. Selah

Those of low estate are but a breath,

those of high estate are a delusion;

in the balances they go up;

they are together lighter than a breath.

Put no confidence in extortion,

and set no vain hopes on robbery;

if riches increase, do not set your heart on them.

Once God has spoken;

twice have I heard this:

that power belongs to God,

and steadfast love belongs to you, O Lord.

For you repay to all

according to their work.

Pecans In The Cemetery

Pecans in the Cemetery

On the outskirts of a small town, there was a big, old pecan tree
just inside the cemetery fence. One day, two boys filled up a
bucketful of nuts and sat down by the tree, out of sight, and began
dividing the nuts. “One for you, one for me. One for you, one for
me,” said one boy. Several dropped and rolled down toward the
fence.

Another boy came riding along the road on his bicycle. As he
passed, he thought he heard voices from inside the cemetery. He
slowed down to investigate. Sure enough, he heard, “One for you,
one for me. One for you, one for me.” He just knew what it was,
so he jumped back on his bike and rode off.

Now just around the bend he met an old man with a cane,
hobbling along. “Come here quick,” said the boy, “you won’t believe
what I heard! Satan and the Lord are down at the cemetery dividing
up the souls.”

The man said, “Beat it kid, can’t you see it’s hard for me to
walk.” When the boy insisted though, the man hobbled to the
cemetery. Standing by the fence they heard, “One for you, one for
me. One for you, one for me…” The old man whispered, “Boy,
you’ve been tellin’ the truth. Let’s see if we can see the Lord.”
Shaking with fear, they peered through the fence yet were still
unable to see anything.

The old man and the boy gripped the wrought iron bars of the
fence tighter and tighter as they tried to get a glimpse of the Lord.
At last they heard, “One for you, one for me. That’s all. Now let’s
go get those nuts by the fence and we’ll be done.”

They say the old man made it back to town a full 5 minutes
ahead of the boy on the bike!

Armaggedon: The Final Conflict

The town clock struck twelve noon. You could hear the church bell in the distance. Suddenly there was a blinding flash of white hot light. The sky turned deep purple. The cold wind began to fiercely blow. Then suddenly darkness was all there was to be seen. Silence fell upon the earth. A bone chilling ominous feel swept the land and covered all that inhabited the land. Both man and beast, no one was hidden from its hideous grasp. People stood in awe. They just stared into unimaginable disbelief. Everyone, everything was caught unaware. Like silent statues everyone, everything stood in petrified fear for they did not know what was about to happen. The mighty tiger crouched low to the ground and waited in fearful anticipation to pounce ion the unseen foe that stood before it. The fierce wolf bowed down and laid its head upon the ground awaiting orders from an unseen master.

Suddenly there was a deafening clap of thunder. The darkness lifted. All returned to as it had been. People continued in amazement, trying to comprehend what had happened. All returned to normal. Time passed by as though nothing had happened.

Soon the church bell rang. It was three O’clock. There was a loud thunderous noise that threatened to deafen all whose ears it touched. The sun turned from bight yellow to orange to red. Scorching heat beat down upon everyone and everything that was upon the earth.

Suddenly the earth shook violently as darkness covered the sky. The earth continued to violently move, threatening to swallow all that was upon it. There was another deafening thunderous noise. The moon was bight white. A bone chilling cold radiated from it. Slowly it turned yellow, then orange, then blue, then purple, and finally red. As the moon turned blood red, fiery heat radiated from it. Its fiery fingers touched everyone and everything that was upon the earth, threatening to singe all that was in its path.

The tiger slowly rose. It was quickly lifted toward the sky as if a hand had reached down and picked the creature up. The wolf stood still watching as fear made its entire being tremble at the awesome sight.

People stood in shocked amazement. They wanted to run. They wanted to scream. All they could do was stand still in silent paralyzed fear. Suddenly the moon was gone and total darkness was upon the earth. All was silent. A church bell rang four times. There was a blinding flash of light. The sun reappeared. All returned to as it had been. People continued to try to push the horrid scene from their mind. Many came to the conclusion it was only their imagination. No one dared to speak of it.

Life continued as it always had. Man and beast forgot the horrifying ordeal. For three days every man and every beast lived their normal lives.

On the fourth day the sun was shinning. The day was warm. Every being was going on with its life. The town clock struck two O’clock in the afternoon. Darkness fell upon the earth. A chill crept over all the land. All was silent as every living creature waited in terrified anticipation. None could imagine what was about to come to pass.

The tiger laid motionless under the willow tress. The wolf bowed down and laid its head upon the ground. Everything stared into the darkness hoping to find an answer as to what was happening. There was no answer to be found. Only darkness and deafening silence.

Suddenly there was a bright light in the sky. All eyes looked up to see the moon shining brightly. An ominous orange glow surrounded it. The wolf slowly raised its head. As the wolf sat there staring at the moon, drops of red blood began to fall upon its head. Every creature wanted to run and hide, but all that saw the sight were paralyzed. They had to remain and watch the hideous sight. As the wolf opened its mouth to howl purple blood ran out. The blood dripped dripped down the outside of the wolf’s throat to fall upon the ground. A howl did not come. Only a thunderous deafening roar, the likes that never had been heard before. Suddenly there was a blinding flash of light. All was silent once again. In the spot where the wolf had sat there was only a pool of purple blood. There was no other sign that the wolf had ever been there.

On the other side of town all became dark. The moon appeared for a few minutes. It was a bright yellow color. After a few minutes passed, the moon slowly faded away. Once again all was in the grip of darkness. The lamb laid its head upon the leopard and closed its eyes.

All was still. Everything was held captive in the grip of silent darkness. A chill crept over the earth. Blue rain began to fall upon the earth. Slowly the rain turned purple. Then the rain turned black. As the black rain fell upon the earth the oceans turned to red blood. There was a sudden fierce gust of wind that swept over and upon the oceans. The oceans violently heaved spiting out all the creatures within. The moon reappeared. It was white hot. All the creatures fell into a deep sleep.

In the middle of the field stood a young woman. She was short and heavy. She had long black hair. She wore an orange and yellow gown made of fine silk. There was a bright flash of light. In the middle of the field now stood an old woman. She was tall and slender. She had blond hair. She wore a black and gold gown made of wool. The young woman slowly walked through the field. The air was cool. A gentle breeze blew. As her gown softly touched the sleeping creatures one by one they began to rise. They awoke to a lush green field. In the middle of the field was a babbling brook. The creatures ravenously began to eat. Their lean undernourished bodies quickly became fat and healthy.

There was deafening thunder and blinding lightning. The young woman had vanished. In her place was the old woman. As she quickly walked through the field the field became barren. Gone was the lush green grass. In its place was dry arid ground. The brook quickly became dry. The breeze stopped. The coolness faded and was replaced by a scorching heat. The creatures became parched. They searched for water. Their bodies began to overheat. The creatures could not handle the intense heat from the sun’s rays. One by one they fell to the ground as their lives and souls were burned out of their beings.

The sun was very bright and very hot. All that could be seen was barren land. A wasteland of half eaten bones. There was no living creature to be found. It looked as though fire had swept over the earth and captured everything in its path. Suddenly the earth opened. It swallowed the bones. Slowly the earth closed over the bones.

The sun turned green. A bitter cold swept across the land. All was ominously silent. Suddenly there was a roar, like that of a lion. The sound came from the sky. The earth violently shook. The barren tree trunks tumbled to the ground. One by one, like match stick they fell. Suddenly the earth gave up its dead. Swarms of people and animals emerged from the ground. The people wore gray robes with red and purple stains on them. Their bodies were thin. Their bones could be seen through their skin. Soon the land looked like a sea of hideous beings. They were pale with hallow lifeless eyes. The people and animals wandered aimlessly about. They looked like hideous wind up toys going in circles with no special destination.

Suddenly the roar stopped. As silence filled the air the people and animals fell face first to the ground. The chill was replaced with a scorching heat. The bodies laid motionless upon the ground. When darkness fell upon the earth the moon and stars did not make an appearance. The earth was covered in total darkness.

The next morning the sun came out. It was bright red. The air was warm. There was a cool breeze. He entered the field. He walked slowly through the field. He touched the head of every being that laid upon the ground. The bodies slowly rose. Their eyes immediately looked upon him. He wore a snow white robe. His jet black hair was as shiny as silk. His emerald eyes radiantly sparkled. His smile was bright and warm like a ray of sun. Everyone who saw him fell down at his bare feet.

There was soft thunder and dim lightning. Drops of purple blood began to form on his white robe. Slowly the blood fell onto the heads of the people who wee bowed down at his feet. Suddenly his smile was gone. It was replaced with a hideous sneer. His emerald eyes turned to black stone. The people wanted to run, but were paralyzed. They were now caught in his evil grip. They were powerless to fight him. The sun blazed. It relentlessly beat down upon the people. They wanted to scream out in agony, but their voices were gone. For the next five days he held them motionless in his evil grip. For five days they had to bow at his feet and look into his black eyes.

Suddenly the sun vanished. Although the sun had disappeared the searing heat remained. In the distance a wolf could be heard. Its hideous howl pierced the ears of the people. Still they could not move or speak. There was a blinding flash of light. When the light subsided the people were no longer there. In their place was a wolf sitting at his feet. He stood there with the same evil sneer and stone black eyes. The wolf opened its mouth to howl. Suddenly the earth opened up. As the wolf gave one last bone chilling howl the earth swallowed it. The earth reopened and out came a tiger. The tiger opened its mouth to roar. Instead there was no sound. It closed its mouth. Then once again the tiger opened its mouth. Still no sound came out. Instead an orange ooze seeped out. Everything became very still and quiet. Suddenly there was an ear splitting thunderous sound followed by a blinding flash of light. the sky turned deep green. The tiger fell to its knees. Suddenly the earth violently shook. The tiger was thrown up into the air and disappeared. Everything became deathly still. Darkness consumed the earth. Suddenly there was a red glow in the sky. Fire rained down upon the earth. What little was left upon the earth was totally destroyed. When the fire ceased, it was as if the earth never existed.
