September 11

Just now my company had a 9/11 tribute meeting. It was quite good and patriotic. As horrific as the scenes were 5 years ago, I have forgotten some already (or I might not have watched those close-ups, like when the second plane crashed right on the tower). We had sharings from many employees, but after all, I can only remember the last sharing from our company main line receptionist, a very dignified old lady, paraphrased here: "I am not the oldest employee here, but I have seen the days of WWII and Pearl Harbor, the war in Korea, and many others. Those were difficult days. There were politics back then. There were divisions in opinions. But America was united and will continue to be so. September 11 is no exception." What words of wisdom from gray hair. Her calmness was such a contrast to the cryings, tears, complaints from the younger folks shared before her who have never been through the assassination of Kennedy.

Our CEO shared that he was on floor 65 of the WTC Tower, meeting with the CEO of an investing company two weeks before the crash. That investing company CEO died due to 9/11. Who can know one’s future but God? If He wants to summon you home right now, what can you do to resist?

Come now, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit." Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away." 嗐!你們有話說:「今天明天我們要往某城裡去,在那裡住一年,作買賣得利。」其實明天如何,你們還不知道。你們的生命是什麼呢?你們原來是一片雲霧,出現少時就不見了。 (James 雅各書 4:13-14)

My friend, if by any chance you see this post and you don’t know Christ yet, you are not saved and are on the road to peril. The Bible says it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment. 按著定命,人人都有一死,死後且有審判。(Hebrews 希伯來書 9:27) If you want to avoid the future wrath from God on all the sinners against Him, do this: "Seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near. 當趁耶和華可尋找的時候尋找他,相近的時候求告他。" (Isaiah 以賽亞書 55:6) He is not far away. Salvation is not far away.

Let the wicked forsake his way And the unrighteous man his thoughts; And let him return to the LORD, And He will have compassion on him, And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon. 惡人當離棄自己的道路;不義的人當除掉自己的意念。歸向耶和華,耶和華就必憐恤他;當歸向我們的神,因為神必廣行赦免。(Isaiah 以賽亞書55:7)

Let me know if I can help you in anyway to be saved today. Jesus loves you.

    I switched on the TV when my aunt told me the first plane crashed into the WTC. I was shocked. After a few minutes, I saw the second plane crashed into another tower. My mind immediately went blank. I kept asking, "what\’s going on? What\’s the future?"
     
    Afterward, I saw the unity of Americans. At that moment, I know why the US can be the strongest country in the world. In some sense, they deserve their position.
     
    It makes thinking about a church. What makes a church "strong". We need the unity. It doesn\’t mean we must have the same opinion in every little item but at least, we have to unite together with prayers.
     
    Satan is just like Osama Bin Laden of every church. His destructive power is much much greater. But if we unite together with prayers, our church can be much much stronger than the US.
