Bobby Follows Suit with Dreadlocks!

bobby-dreadlocks.jpgNot to be outdone by his younger brother Johnny, Bobby has paid a visit to the beauty parlor and now has an outrageous “do”  to rival that of Johnny.  How can I be seen in public with my two brothers?  What should I do?  Maybe Dr. Laura or Dear Abby can help me.  Any suggestions?

Johnny’s Dreadlocks

Several months ago, I had a very disturbing dream.  I dreamt that my youngest brother Johnny had a new hairdo.  Johnny was wearing dreadlocks!  And he was proud of it and had an attitude to match his “do”.  In my family, whenever we have a weird dream, we usually e-mail all the siblings to see what kind of interpretation they will send back.  So naturally, I e-mailed all five of my dear siblings to hear their responses.  I think that all of their replies bordered on humorous, but I’m here to tell you that this dream came true!  It really did!  It happened when Johnny was out here visiting us in September along with my brother Bobby.  We were in the midst of a great family reunion, when all of a sudden, out walks Johnny with the “dreaded dreadlocks”!  They even were dyed orange, of all colors!  We were appalled and rendered speechless!  Johnny posed proudly for the camera, and here is the picture for all to see!  We don’t know where he got those awful dreadlocks from, but all I know is that my little one-year-old niece, Abby is missing her Hawaiian grass skirt!

Prophecy and Probability

nativity2.jpg  I was reading in my devotional this morning, and it said that Isaiah, Micah, and many of the other prophets foretold many details of Jesus’ birth, life and death hundreds of years before they were fulfilled.  The likelihood of these events occurring exactly as they were prophesied is too remote to explain away the phenomenon by calling it coincidence.

In Science Speaks, Peter Stoner applies the modern science of probability to just eight prophecies.  He said, “The chance that any man might have . . . fulfilled all eight prophecies is one in ten to the seventh degree.  That would be 1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000.”  Stoner said that if we took that many silver dollars and laid them across Texas, they would cover the state two feet deep!

Since Christ’s first coming was the exact fulfillment of many prophecies, we can expect the same of His second coming.  ¾ D.J.D.

Bethlehem Ephrathah, . . . out of you shall come forth to Me the One to be Ruler in Israel.  Micah 5:2

Prophecy is history written ahead of time.
