Revelation 3:20

JOKE OF THE WEEK, 12 Nov 2012

TMS editor

A new pastor moved into town and went out one Saturday to visit his parishioners.

All went well until he came to one house. It was obvious that someone was home, but no one came to the door even after he had knocked several times.

Finally, he took out his card and wrote on the back: Revelation 3:20 and stuck it in the door.

The next day, as he was counting the offering he found his card in the collection plate. Below his message was the notation Genesis 3:10.

Revelation 3:20 reads: “Behold I stand at the door and knock. If any man hear my voice, and opens the door, I will come in to him, and will dine with him, and he with me.”

Genesis 3:10 reads: “And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked.”

One Response to “Revelation 3:20”

    Isaiah, chapter 58, has some good lines, too. Want drought? Floods? No?! Then read that chapter and consider its point. We are generating endless cheap labor on the planet at a startling clip – a 40% increase in the number of people on the planet in twenty-five years! (1986 – 2011). The strain that this places on the natural resources of the planet is reaching the breaking point. We are creating human thralls at a godless pace. We are consuming 90 million barrels of petroleum every day, worldwide, and hardly a soul inquires regarding the effect that this increasing consumption (up from 85 million, recently) has on the crust of the earth. If fracking causes earthquakes, then what might this enormous extraction of oil from the crust of the planet, everyday, generate? One more step towards Doomsday might just see us there. Let’s get our eyes on seeking knowledge of God – through revelations (signs) – in order to solve the problems that our stewardship involves. We have to teach people to cease from “excluding God from human history.”
