In Vegas, a UNC student walks up to a Coke machine and

puts in a coin. Out pops a coke. The student looks amazed
and runs away to get some more coins.

She returns and starts feeding the machine madly, and
of course the machine keeps popping out the drinks.

Another person walks up behind the student and watches
her antics for a few minutes before stopping her and asking
if someone else could have a go.

The UNC student spins around and shouts in her face:
"Can't you see I'm winning??"

You erred in putting quiz answers at the end where
reference was difficult.

Your NC humor was puerile and self-serving.

There was wat too much to wade through.

And religion and humor do not mix.

Howdy Howdy,

I did not ask to be unsubscribed. While the humor is often childish and the
Christain message unchanging (New material needed), your letters always
cheer me up, and the messages of irritation from the Godless give me a chuckle.

Here's a story for you. A very rich man learned he was about to die. He was
distraught at having to leave all his great wealth behind. That night he
prayed earnestly to the LORD that he might take something. An angel appeared
in a dream. "There are no pockets in a shroud, you must come with empty hands."

The following night he prayed even more vehemently and the angel reappeared.
"OK the LORD has relented. You may bring one suitcase."

The next day he called his broker and liquidated everything, had it turned
into gold ingots, which he put in a suitcase under his bed. That night his
soul was required of him. Hw lugged this heavy suitcase up to them pearly gates.

Peter stopped him on the gate. "You cannot bring that suitcase in here.
Haven't you heard, 'Nothing in my hands I bring'?"

"The LORD has given me special dispensation, I may bring one suitcase."

Peter sends an angel to check with the LORD if he's telling the truth and
the angel hurries back, "He's right, but you have to inspect the bag to check
for contraband"

Peter opens the case and looks inside.

"Paving stones? You brought paving stones?"

Please reinstate me.

Best wishes,

They're usually some of the most exciting moments in sports. The
touchdown or field goal that wins the game with no time left on the clock.
That game-winning basket as the final buzzer sounds. The game-winning home
run with two out in the bottom of the ninth inning. Whatever the sport,
there is nothing like a sudden victory when victory seems out of reach to
make the fans go ballistic.

It can be really nerve-wracking when you're behind and time is running
out. But it's really thrilling when a hero pulls it out at the last minute.
The longer I walk with this God of ours, the more I've come to appreciate
Him as the God of the last-second victory, the God of the eleventh hour, as
I've called Him so often.

The Bible reveals many names by which God wants us to know Him. One
that has meant so much to so many for so long is the name Jehovah-jireh. It
means, "The Lord will provide." You may be facing a need or situation right
now where that is literally your only hope - that the Lord will provide - a
job, a friend, the funds you need, the person you need, the answer you need,
the house, the healing, the breakthrough you need.

We have His rock-solid promise in Philippians 4:19 that "my God will
meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus." Now,
God's supply has nothing to do with what's happening in the economy, in the
news, at work, in what your resources can do. It's all about His unlimited
"Jesus-account" in heaven - which transcends every limitation earth has.

To be honest, God often waits a while to meet that need. And that's
when we tend to panic, to come up with some desperate way to meet the need
on our own, to abandon our trust in God because, well, He's taking too long.
Which takes us right out of the will of God and aborts what God was going to
do. It's in Genesis 22, where we find our word for today from the Word of
God, that God is known as Jehovah-jireh for the very first time. We can
learn a lot from how He worked that day for Abraham. Abraham had, by faith,
obeyed God's direction to take the son God had once promised to him, climb
Mt. Moriah with him, and sacrifice his son there - as God Himself would do
one day when Jesus died on the cross.

Believing that God will somehow provide something he can't imagine,
Abraham promises his servants that both he and his son Isaac will return
from the mountain. Genesis 22:10 says his faith and obedience went so far
that "he reached out his hand and took the knife to slay his son." At that
very last moment, God stopped him - and showed Abraham a ram, stuck in a
thicket, who would be sacrificed instead of his son. And the Bible says, "So
Abraham called that place, 'The Lord Will Provide.'" Jehovah-jireh - making
His move when there was no time left.

Now, about your need. God loves to come through for us when there is
absolutely no place else that answer could come from. And there's no time
left on the clock. It's 11:59. The buzzer is about to sound. And God shows
up with His provision at a time and in a way that will blow you away, that
will give Him all the glory ... that will show the people around you the
greatness of your God and take you to a whole new level of faith and
worship. God's last-minute victories are some of the most awesome
moments of your life. So don't lose faith now. The greater the need, the
later the hour, the more amazing God's work on your behalf is going to be.
Hang in there until the end of the game, because that is when God really
does His stuff!

Verse of the Day

* * * Four Important Things To KNOW: #1) For ALL (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) have sinned & fall short of the glory of God. #2) For the wages of above (see #1) are DEATH (Hell, eternal separation from God, & damnation) but the Gift (free & at no charge to you) of God (Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is Eternal Life (Heaven) through (in union with) Jesus Christ (God, Lord, 2nd Person of The Trinity, Messiah, Prince of Peace & Savior of the World). #3) For God so greatly loved & dearly prized the world (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) that He even gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone, anywhere, anytime - while still living) believes (trust in, relies on, clings to, depends completely on) Him shall have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven). #4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIFE. No one (male/female - American, Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist, Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc. ) comes (arrives) to the Father (with GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through) ME (no other name). *** This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - - (Rev. 3:20) {Please note that church membership, baptism, doing good things, etc. are not requirements for becoming a Christian - however they are great afterwards!!!} *** Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction (Hell, damnation, eternal punishment), and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness, forever with God), and only a few find it.

But these are written so that you may
believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the
Son of God, and that by believing in
Him you will have life. Jn 20:31

Seek the Lord while He may be found;
call on Him while He is near. Let the
wicked forsake his way and the evil
man his thoughts. Let him turn to the
Lord, and He will have mercy on him,
and to our God, for He will freely
pardon. "For My thoughts are not
your thoughts, neither are your ways
My ways," declares the Lord. "As the
heavens are higher than the earth, so
are My ways higher than your ways
and My thoughts than your thoughts.
As the rain and the snow come down
from heaven, and do not return to it
without watering the earth and making
it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed
for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is My word that goes out from My
mouth: It will not return to Me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire and
achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
You will go out in joy and be led forth
in peace; the mountains and hills will
burst into song before you, and all the
trees of the field will clap their hands.
Instead of the thornbush will grow the
pine tree, and instead of briers the myrtle
will grow. This will be for the Lord's
renown, for an everlasting sign, which
will not be destroyed." Is 55

O Lord, you have searched me and you
know me. You know when I sit and when
I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying
down; you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue you know
it completely, O Lord. You hem me in -
behind and before; you have laid your
hand upon me. Such knowledge is too
wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where
can I flee from your presence? If I go up
to the heavens, you are there; if I make
my bed in the depths, you are there.

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.

If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide
me and the light become night around
me," even the darkness will not be dark
to you; the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you. For you
created my inmost being; you knit me
together in my mother's womb. I praise
you because I am fearfully and wonderfully
made; your works are wonderful, I know
that full well. My frame was not hidden
from you when I was made in the secret
place. When I was woven together in the
depths of the earth, your eyes saw my
unformed body. All the days ordained
for me were written in your book before
one of them came to be.

How precious to me are your thoughts,
O God! How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them, they would
outnumber the grains of sand. When
I awake, I am still with you. Search me,
O God, and know my heart; test me
and know my anxious thoughts. See
if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
Ps 139

But indeed for this purpose I have raised you up,
that I may show My power in you, and that My
Name may be declared in all the earth. Ex 9:16

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small:
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.
- - Isaac Watts
