Like Ben Carson who thought he could help the country, there are scores of people who might like to be president, but as President Trump is finding out, it’s a thankless job.

In a nation made great by people who started and ran their own business, the idea of being a CEO is attractive. Why not consider an offer that takes it to a whole new level?

It’s for people who have discovered why the Bible is the #1 best-seller--it’s all that it claims to be--only God could predict that the Medes and Persians (now called Iraq & Iran) would be the focus of US conflict “at the time of the end,” Daniel 8:17,20. It’s half fulfilled; Saddam is gone.

The resurrection of Christ is documented by disciples who ran for their lives when he was taken, but after his resurrection they were willing to die for him--would we expect them to die for a lie? The Bible is trustworthy in spite of being badly misunderstood or poorly translated some places.

Christ gave two wedding parables the last week of his life that are not understood, but Luke’s wedding parable is like the Rosetta Stone that helps decode them. It includes the promise that “he will make [us] ruler over all that he has” if we meet the conditions that aren’t difficult. It’s better than two terms in the White House and it isn’t bought with money.

To show that Christ understood where we are, he ended his last six parables with links to 9-11, a number we all recognize as a huge event that makes us wonder about end-times. His six parables are different aspects of the same huge event “as the days of Noah” with widespread destruction and Passover timing, but in the 2nd spring month (Genesis 7:11), based on 9-11--Numbers 9:10,11

When five women missed the wedding, Christ told his disciples they didn’t understand, because it’s like a man traveling to a far country, Matt 25:14. If Israelites took a long trip in spring and they couldn’t get back for Passover, they kept it a month later; again it’s 9-11--Numbers 9:10,11.

We’ve just seen how those last two parables have timing in the 2nd spring month. “As the days of Noah” also was in the 2nd spring month, Gen 7:11. The next parable begins “Then...” Same time!

Suddenly the reward for watching and praying on the eve that he clued us becomes a possibility, rather than an open-ended situation when nobody knows. God said He won’t do anything without revealing it, Amos 3:7.

The sign for this to happen this spring is ‘when you see Jerusalem compassed with armies’ Lk 21 also seen in Zech 14:1,2 when ‘all nations’ are gathered against Jerusalem for the day of the Lord

If we see this at Passover/Easter a couple weeks from now, we should do all we can to tell others about it as Matthew 22 suggests. Giving God all we can is a wise investment toward His reward, “ruler over all that He has.” Lk 12:44,48.
