From Sherly's Desk...

Little Johnny was so frightened that his heart beat was very high.  He was unable to understand what was going on.  He ran to his parents room but they were not there.  His little mind was trying to grasp things quickly.  He could recall his mother telling very often that one day Jesus will come on the clouds.  And take people into heaven with Him.  Did my parents go with Jesus... and am I left behind?  He could not think anymore.  Tears welled up on his eyes. 

He had hard time thinking what happened to his parents.  Suddenly he remembered about his elder sister Nicky and ran to her room, she wasn't there either.  Oh, he thought, all are gone with Jesus but why I alone am left behind?  Why Jesus did not take me home with Him?  His heart sank, he felt very bad.  He started remembering Nicky's words, "Jesus will not take you heaven if you speak lies... if you steal pencil of other kids in school... if you... if you... Those words seemed echoing in his ears and making fun of him.  He ran next door neighbor's home.. and the most shocking thing was he could not see anybody there.  He thought oh, all my friends are gone.. why I alone am left here?  Why?

He could not bear anymore. He fell on his knees and started sobbing and praying, Lord Jesus, Please forgive me, please, please take me home with you, please...  He woke up with the voice of her mother asking, "What happened Johnny, why are you crying?"  Still sobbing, he asked, "Where we are, in heaven?"  His mother smiled and said, no we are in this world.  Johnny told all the dream he had few moments back and promised his mother to please God so that he will not be left behind.

My dear little friends, do you know that Jesus is going to come anytime?  Are you ready to go with Him?  If not ask Jesus to come into your heart.  Walk in His ways and He will never let you down.


Science and Bible II

Why Bible Prohibits Eating Few Things?

Leviticus 11:7,  'and the swine, though it divides the hoof, having cloven hooves, yet does not chew the cud, is unclean to you.

God gave laws to Moses in which He prohibited few things not to eat.  What was the reason of it?  Pig or swine lives in filth and eats filth.  Because he lives in filth and eats filth his body contains worms.  If half cooked meat was eaten it can be very dangerous or life threatening.  Tapeworm and other worms can be transmitted through pork flesh to human body.  His body contains poison in the shape of trichina or pork worms which gradually destroy humans.  These worms starts breeding in the walls of the stomach and intestine.  It spreads to spine and brain and there is no cure for it.

Bible says in Leviticus 11:9-11, 'These you may eat of all that are in the water: whatever in the water has fins and scales, whether in the seas or in the rivers; that you may eat. But all in the seas or in the rivers that do not have fins and scales, all that move in the water or any living thing which is in the water, they are an abomination to you.  They shall be an abomination to you; you shall not eat their flesh, but you shall regard their carcasses as an abomination.

Finfish's cholesterol level is quite low.  Finfish are good for health.  Our body need nine amino acids which our body does not produce so we need it from foods.  Finfish have all the nine amino acids and the best part is the its protein  is highly digestible.  Not only that finfish are low in fat, less than 5%, and, in many cases, less than 1% fat.  While the cholesterol in shrimp varies considerably by specie, it generally is 1-1/2 to 2 times higher than in the dark meat of chicken.

Isn't it amazing that Moses who might have never studied biology, medical science etc. wrote in detail what is prohibited and what is not!

But those who followed these laws they were so cautious about their religious duties that they forgot that there is a God and we must give first place to God not to the rituals.  They followed the rules very minutely but could not follow God or walk in the holy ways of God.  Jesus said to them in Matthew 15:17-20, "Do you not yet understand that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and is eliminated? But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man.  For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies. These are the things which defile a man, but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile a man."

And our evil thoughts and evil deeds can only be eliminated by the blood of Jesus which was shed on the cruel cross.
