Linda and Deirdre came over for a swim yesterday, and drinks (soft) and nibbles. We had a wonderful talk at the Kingdom Hall in the morning - all about where we are in the stream of time and what is going to happen next. Look for the UN being given teeth - it has a job to do.
A question: "What is "Babylon the Great" of Revelation, and why do we urgently need to get out of it and stand clear?
What the UN will not do though is bring about peace on earth - whatever it may be going to claim. Only the incoming Kingdom of God, which is a heavenly government, a rulership from the heavens, will bring about real peace on earth.
The warning in the Hebrew Scriptures that "it does not belong to man who is walking even to direct his step" still stands. And the last 6,000 years of human history go to prove the truth of the warning. We are busy commemorating the outbreak of the first World War, while a new war goes in the Crimea, the Middle East is in flames, etc.
Jackie cooked us and Tom a roast lamb supper, followed by cheese and a lemon cheesecake. A lovely evening, as ever. We have booked her up for next Friday. I might do a curry.
Today looks like being a housework day - two lots of washing already done and dusted.
