Here I am retired and trying to occupy my time.I decided to buy used books on construction, eventually hoping to build a vacation house in the Philippines.
Then Typhoon Haiyan or Yolanda struck and we saw the devastation.But then I thought maybe the construction books will help in design of rebuilding houses. Then in Luzon ( the major island of the Philippines) our family have a small parcel of land, where I thought I can build a small house. Then I learned that that land will be in the area of expansion of road or the road will pass over that land. Then I realized the population of the world has been growing, farm land area diminishing etc, etc. and then it further dawn on me, we are exhausting the earth.
At this moment I realize this is a grim picture of things to come. But before you and i will get depressed, I saw hope . What hope you may ask ? Maybe Jesus' coming is soon. The Bible promised there will be new heaven and new earth. Jesus might come in an event called the rapture , where Christians are changed from mortality to immortality. That while Christians are taken to heaven, earth will be rebuilt or renewed.
Fantasy or reality ? Reality I believe, soon and very soon, we are going to see the King.
