Thank you Bob for a wonderful, TRUE way of telling us of our real problems.
As I grew up, I always worked hard and as perfect as I could. I kept many jobs even in HS that the VP of the Bank did the janitor work in the summer while I worked on a ranch, so I could come back and do the janitor job again when school started. I did that job from the middle of 8th grade all through HS. I worked on the ranch in the summer time all those years plus the summer after one year of college. I was always so proud of keeping my job because of my work. I was always proud of my accomplishments.
Then at age 50, 32 years ago, I gave myself to Christ. And now if I tell someone of what I did, I always tell them how Blessed I have been by Christ giving be so many abilities to do so many things. I give Him ALL the credit and I now know where all comes from.
I have been through some tough times but only for Him to show my why. As when we were moving from working at a mission with the Navajo to Colorado Springs, our moving van crashed and totally burned. I mean totally. But as we found out later, the other families stuff was all satanic. The driver was driving 10mph down a curvy highway and yet the truck flew through the air for over 60ft. The driver lived but we had an instant yard sale. Peretti's books of "This present Darkness" and the follow up, showed us that Angels and demons were having a fight and the Angels destroyed the truck with ALL in it.
BUT the VP of Allied Van Lines came to the Lord. The owner of the trailer, who owned more than a 100 trailers, came to the Lord as well as his wife and four daughters.
Then in 2001, I lost my wife of many years but the Lord spoke to me and showed me that she had finished her race, finished well, now she is enjoying the fruit she had laid up in heaven, and I am to finish my race, and He then gave me peace from that day forward. And He just keeps Blessing me, over and over.
Yes, He even Blessed me with another wonderful wife and we have been married for about 15 years and He gives us Blessings each and every day.
Again, Thank You Bob for ALL you do. DFW
Reply from Watchman Bob: Good testimony, but please, don't thank me. If anything I have written is true, it is from Yahuah ("God"). You mentioned your past life as a proud person. But pride - the most subtle sin, an abomination to the Creator (Proverbs 16:5), is the downfall of many "Christians." We must constantly be on guard against it. "Apart from me you can do nothing" (Yahushua - John 15:5).
