This is a weekly series that will include a brief summary of the latest articles that have been published on The Tribulation Times Herald-Exhorter. Hopefully, this will encourage you to go check out some truly outstanding articles that have been published by a number of truly outstanding authors. Moreover, I hope this will also encourage you to want to become a contributing member/author, as well. The “Hear Ye! Hear Ye!” site explanation near the top of the side-bar should answer many of your questions. Yes, this series also included an “SOS! (Spam On Saturdays)” segment before, but it just wasn’t working for me. Therefore, that will be replaced by a republishing of one of the Trib articles.

An old joke has flood waters creeping closer to where a man sits on the roof of his house. In a loud voice, he prays, “Lord, please come to my rescue in my hour of great need!” A few minutes later, a neighbor paddles his canoe up next to the man and invites him to come join him in the canoe. “No,” the man answers, I have prayed to the Lord, and I must remain where I am until He sees fit to deliver me out of this peril.” As the neighbor was paddling away while shaking his head in disbelief over the man’s refusal to be rescued by him, he noticed that the flood waters were now almost up the man’s waist as he clung to the chimney sticking out of the roof of his house. In an even louder voice, the man prayed again, “Lord, please come to my rescue in my hour of great need!!” A few minutes later, a large rubber raft, with several members of the Navy onboard, floated right up next to him, and a Naval officer told him to reach out his hand in order to make it easier to be brought into the raft. Again, the man answered the call for him to accept help, “No, I have prayed to the Lord, and I must remain where I am until He sees fit to deliver me out of this peril.” The Naval personnel all had looks of great shock on their faces as they speed off to go help someone else, and after they had went a fair piece away, one of them told the commanding officer that he had seen through a pair of binoculars that the man was now hanging from the top of his chimney, with his head barely above the water line. In a voice that now sounded more like a scream than a prayer, the man cried out, “Lord, please come to my rescue in my hour of great need!!!” A few minutes later, a Coast Guard helicopter eased over his position, and a rescue diver dove into the water to help him get into the basket that was being lowered from the helicopter. Again, the man answered the call for him to accept help, “No, I have prayed to the Lord, and I must remain where I am until He sees fit to deliver me out of this peril.” The helicopter was not quite out of sight before the flood waters rose above his head, and the man drowned. When the man stood before the Lord on Judgment Day, he asked Him, “Why did you not come to my rescue?” With great sadness in His voice, the Lord answered him, “My son, I sent two different types of watercraft and a helicopter, but refused to see my hand at work.”
The absolute truth of the matter truly is that far too many in the Christian community fail to see our Heavenly Father’s hand at work because of the situation at hand not fitting in with their beliefs. Alas, who can truly see without looking at things through His eyes, but who is so blind as the one who refuses to see?
