1993: Shucks, I Must Have Missed The Second Coming
What ever happened to the return of Jesus Christ in 1993? Did I miss it? After all, I kept hearing that prophecy over and over and over again when I was in TF in the 70s: "The Last Seven Years" I even remember a song we sang about it at TSC to the tune of "SittinÂ´On The Dock Of The Bay". Anyway, those of you that witnessed it, if you donÂ´t mind, please tell me about it. Well, the Spirit moves in mysterious ways, doesnÂ´t it? I guess God decided to make a few last-minute changes, and I wasnÂ´t paying attention. Yeah, I know, D.B. finally covered his backside by saying that he never said Jesus was coming back in 1993 -- he just allowed that to be spread throughout the movement for years, with charts, etc., in full knowledge that it was being said, and remaining silent about it for years.
And now I think I can almost hear the distant proverbial voice of the "older brother/sister" from the past saying, "MmmmBrother, did you PRAY about that? Are you sure you werenÂ´t -- `in the fleshÂ´? God is not mocked!"
I would add another verse to that one: Human beings should not be mocked, despised, and deceived -- and learn to not let themselves be mocked, despised, and deceived.
Have a nice day, former "older brothers and sisters". :wink:
yes, we missed the "second coming". And now we are all in hell on earth!
Only Kidding!! :wink:
The country I live in, Spain, is the only one I know of that named a street after the band that did "Highway To Hell": AC-DC. IÂ´ll have to visit AC-DC street one of these days -- they say itÂ´s in a village called LeganÃ©s: http://www.ac-dc.galeon.com/leganes.html
Come to think of it, didnÂ´t that come out some time around "The Beginning of The Week"? --
You know, I always kinda liked that old poem, "Gunga Din": "Â´heÂ´ll be sittÃnÂ´on the coals, givinÂ´drinks to poor damned souls, and IÂ´ll get a swig in `ell, from Gunga Din..."
I wonder if Gunga Din will serve malt whiskey in `ell? Although IÂ´d settle for a cold beer... :wink:
Gunga Din was a Char-wallah! A Tea-Boy. Only thing you'd get off him would have been a nice cuppa! (Tea to you colonials).
