Lord's good pleasure

Saturday August 24th, Luke 12:  54 He said to the crowd: "When you see a cloud rising in the west, immediately you say, 'It's going to rain,' and it does. 55 And when the south wind blows, you say, 'It's going to be hot,' and it is. 56 Hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and the sky. How is it that you don't know how to interpret this present time? Sometimes all those charts of the rapture enthusiasts just get in the way of seeing the big picture, it is the Lord’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom.  We so want to find a scriptural interpretation that supports our prejudice that we fail to see how it affects our brothers and sisters in this world.  In the end of time no one is raptured off this earth, but, as it says in Revelation, Christ the Lamb comes to live with us.  Perhaps instead of destroying it for fun and profit, we should start cleaning the place now.  God is far more impressed with pristine beauty than oil spills and big bank accounts.
