LIKE A THIEF IN THE NIGHT !!



WHEN  DAVID  WAS  YOUNG  HE  FOUGHT  WITH  A  SLING,
BUT  WHEN  HE  GREW  UP  THE  LORD  GOD  ANOINTED  HIM
TO  BE  A  KING.
IN  THE  BOOK  THATS  CALLED  PSALMS,
WRITING  OF  JESUS  DAVID  FORETOLD  THAT  THE  MESSIAH  WOULD  BE  PIERCED
IN  HIS  FEET  AND  HIS  PALMS.
OUR  LORDS  BETRAYAL  WAS  PRECISELY  FORETOLD  IN  PSALM  41:9,
AS  JOHNS  GOSPEL  SAYS  JESUS  CHRIST  DIED  FOR  YOUR  SINS  AND  MINE.
IT  GETS  ME  EXCITED  EACH  TIME  I  WRITE,
WHAT  THE  SCRIPTURES  FORETELL  THAT  JESUS  IS  COMING  LIKE  A  THIEF  IN
THE  NIGHT.
