Interesting...that I got today in a E-mail.

DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS?

I SURE DIDN'T TILL NOW


Death is certain but the Bible speaks about untimely death!

Make a personal reflection about this.....


Very interesting, read until the end.....


It is written in the Bible (Galatians 6:7):


"Be not deceived; God is not mocked:

As a man sow,
that shall he also reap.


Here are some men and women who mocked God :



John Lennon (Singer):


Some years before, during his interview with an American Magazine, he said:

"Christianity will end, it will disappear.

I do not have to argue about
that. I am certain.


Jesus was ok, but his subjects were too simple, today we are more famous than Him" (1966).


Lennon, after saying that the Beatles were more famous than Jesus Christ, was shot six times.



Tancredo Neves (President of Brazil ):


During the Presidential campaign, he said if he got 500,000 votes from his party, not even God would remove him from Presidency.

Sure he got the votes, but he got sick a day before being made President, then he died.


Cazuza (Bi-sexual Brazilian composer, singer and poet):


During A show in Canecio ( Rio de Janeiro ),

while smoking his cigarette, he puffed out some smoke into the air and said:"God, that's for you."


He died at the age of 32 of LUNG CANCER in a horrible manner.


The man who built the Titanic

After the construction of Titanic, a reporter asked him how safe the Titanic would be. With an ironic tone he said:
"Not even God can sink it"


The result: I think you all know what happened to the Titanic

Marilyn Monroe (Actress)


She was visited by Billy Graham during a presentation of a show.


He said the Spirit of God had sent him to preach to her.


After hearing what the Preacher had to say, she said:
"I don't need your Jesus".

A week later, she was found dead in her apartment





Bon Scott (Singer)




The ex-vocalist of the AC/DC. On one of his 1979 songs he sang:



"Don't stop me; I'm going down all the way, down the highway to hell".



On the 19th of February 1980, Bon Scott was found dead, he had been choked by his own vomit.


Campinas (IN 2005)



In Campinas , Brazil a group of friends, drunk, went to pick up a friend......


The mother accompanied her to the car and was so worried about the drunkenness of her friends and she said to the daughter holding her hand, who was already seated in the car:

"My Daughter, Go With God And May He Protect You."

She responded: "Only If He (God) Travels In The Trunk, Cause Inside Here.....It's Already Full "

Hours later, news came by that they had been involved in a fatal accident, everyone had died, the car could not be recognized what type of car it had been, but surprisingly, the trunk was intact.
The police said there was no way the trunk could have remained intact. To their surprise, inside the trunk was a crate of eggs, none was broken

Christine Hewitt (Jamaican Journalist and entertainer)
said the Bible (Word of God) was the worst book ever written.

In June 2006 she was found burnt beyond recognition in her motor vehicle.


Many more important people have forgotten that there is no other name that was given so much authority as the name of Jesus.

Many have died, but only Jesus died and rose again, and he is still alive.

"Jesus"



PS: If it was a joke, you would have sent it to everyone.
So are you going to have courage to send this?.


I have done my part, Jesus said


"If you are embarrassed about me, I will also be embarrassed about you before my father."


You are my 8 in 8 seconds. I am not breaking this. No way!


I'M TOLD THIS WORKS!!!!! Bishop T.D. Jakes "8 Second Prayer." Just repeat this prayer and see how God moves!!




"Lord, I love you and I need you, come into my heart, and bless me, my family, my home, and my friends, in Jesus' name. Amen."

"Perhaps our role on this planet is not to worship God - but to create Him."
-Arthur C. Clark
The guy was knighted and lived to be 90. Doesn't sound bad to me.

"The idea of God is the sole wrong for which I cannot forgive mankind."
-Marquis de Sade
Died in an insane asylum, but didn't die a horribly painful death.

Seems like martyrs die the ridiculously horrid deaths, eh?

While it's true that God will not be mocked, the humorous thing I find about this e-mail is the way it ends.

1) God is not a formulaic, cosmic Coke machine that you pray a repetitious prayer to, pull a lever and get your goodies. He is Almighty God, the Holy One.

2) It reduces God to fit into the American Christianity mold of "Me, me, me!" and "Get, get, get!" It's not about us, it's about Him.

3) TD Jakes is a false prophet whose pimping God out for wealth and riches. Jesus did not die so we could become rich.

4) It plays to superstition, which is a form of witchcraft. Send this out to 8 people in 8 seconds and say an 8 second prayer and be blessed! Where does the Bible say this is true?

There is a huge lack of respect and fear of the Lord in our culture today. Ben & Jerry's ice cream and the newest movie release are not "awesome," God alone is.

Salvation doesn't come by saying a "sinner's prayer."

No one will ever be saved by chain-mail or spam, that's for sure. I just delete all that crap, if it's forwarded to me from somewhere else, it's not worth my time. Type up some biblical quotes on your own, without the superstitious bullcrap, and I'll read it. This was a waste of time, you didn't have to post it in the forum you could have just forwarded it to all your friends.
