A parody of 1 Peter 4:7-11 that reflects Christian culture

1 Peter 4:7-11
7The end of all things is near. Therefore be clear minded and self-controlled so that you can pray. 8Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. 9Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. 10Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms. 11If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.


1 Pecker 4:7-11
The end of all things will never come. Therefore, blindly adhere to what you know nothing about, and be zealous so that you can influence. Above all, have an intense and unfailing criticism of those who need it, for "concern" regards and exposes the offenses of others. Practice excommunication of others, and do so cordially. None of you have special gifts or spiritual talents, to offer anyone. So, if anyone speaks, he shouldn't think that God is relevant to in the choosing of words. You know what everyone needs, so serve it up with your own human strength, so that if whatever you try happens to work-out, you can "give God the glory."

Pecker Head. I loved the passage reference: 1 Pecker 4 7-11
You know this is a very serious warning about the end. It is asking us to invite the Holy Spirit in and have divine communion with our brothers and sisters during a stressful time in the World. I mean the paragraph starts with, "The end of all things is near".

That is a pretty clear warning to serve and love those around you. Be ready for calamity, within what knowledge you receive from the HS, but also give and serve each other. This would seem to be the message of the entire New Testament… to love your God and to love your neighbor as yourself, however, the statement: "The end of all things is near" is clearly for those of us who are looking for the return of YahShua (Jesus).

We take for granted that the authors are speaking during their time about His return, and therefore, people have always been waiting on His return. I see it as the Holy Spirit leaving messages for the future Church. When you see and hear: “rumors of war” and see the land of Israel given back to the Jews…all signs of His return, know that the END is truly near. I could be overstepping.

We need to serve one another. Love and respect each other. Be gracious to the one beside you who has a different thought or two on life and disagrees. When calamity comes, can you step outside of your house and help a neighbor with food or water or clothing.
In Christ,

There is a rich history of believers that communicated that they thought of the end as very near even within their lifetime. Paul and Peter are two prominent examples that few could deny. Both of them taught and spoke as though we shouldn't be lulled to sleep and plan ahead as if we had all the time in the world.

1 Cor. 7:29-31 But this I say, brethren, the time is short: it remaineth, that both they that have wives be as though they had none; And they that weep, as though they wept not; and they that rejoice, as though they rejoiced not; and they that buy, as though they possessed not; And they that use this world, as not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth away.

Now, however, the "bride" appears to have lost this focus. I've heard people ridicule believers that have been laid to rest, saying that they were wrong to expect the Lord in their lifetime. Was it really wrong? Was Paul wrong and Peter? Is that a great error deserving disdain?

Consider that you, Jim, and myself are familiar with the same taunt and jeer. But this is ne less than we should expect, right? I know you and I have a conviction that "this generation" is it ... we see the coming. And why not, when Jesus said it would be this generation ... the generation that watches what has unfolded before our eyes in Jerusalem.

If we are in error seeking the Lord, I guess that might be the case ... nobody can eb too sure. But what is the great sin? Excommunication and jeering of scoffing slumberers, orthe enthusiasm that you and I have about His return that may (or may not) be error?

If I am in error I would rather answer for that, than answer for mean-spirited taunts toward people you "think" are wrong.

A classic and quotable thought, Trent. very true.

Given THE FACT of Israel since 1948 & 1967, PLUS all *the very real* "signs of the times" [including the amazing hexagram sign at the north pole of Saturn!] ... there are VERY GOOD REASONS to believe we are in the concluding hours of human history.

Here, as always, is my response:

M A R A N A T H A !!!
