    The Body 'No One Deserves Happiness'

the dawning of the eschatologically restored Israel-the church

It is now in the flow 1:41 PM Thursday afternoon. It is a cold sunny day here in West Michigan. I should be outside enjoying the sunshine, but I am too tired to go anywhere today.

I have had thus far a normal day. I got up this morning around 7 o'clock AM. I did all the things I do each morning. There was no break in my morning routine this morning. My wife got home from work around 10 o'clock AM. I was in my study reading "Paris Vagabond" when she got home.

Today I have been basically wandering the house and messing with our main computer. I read some more of the memoir "Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal? by Jeanette Winterson this afternoon.

This morning I read for morning worship "The Presence of God Its Place In The Storyline of Scripture And The Story Of Our Lives" by J. Ryan Lister.

Yesterday I made three videos for my YouTube channel. I do not remember much about last night. I went to bed around 11 o'clock PM. The last book I attempted to read last night was "Paris Vagabond" by Jean-Paul Clebert.

My wife is off from work the next four nights. She has a full schedule the next four days. I doubt if I will see much of her the next four days. My wife is always on the go! I do not like to be on the go. I like doing nothing.

Well I will close to read my books and watch the birds. Existence keeps decaying.

"[10] Rejoice ye with Jerusalem, and be glad with her, all ye that love her: rejoice for joy with her, all ye that mourn for her:
[11] That ye may suck, and be satisfied with the breasts of her consolations; that ye may milk out, and be delighted with the abundance of her glory.
[12] For thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream: then shall ye suck, ye shall be borne upon her sides, and be dandled upon her knees.
[13] As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem.
[14] And when ye see this, your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like an herb: and the hand of the LORD shall be known toward his servants, and his indignation toward his enemies.
[15] For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.
[16] For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many.
[17] They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the LORD.
[18] For I know their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory.
[19] And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those that escape of them unto the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal, and Javan, to the isles afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the Gentiles.
[20] And they shall bring all your brethren for an offering unto the LORD out of all nations upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts, to my holy mountain Jerusalem, saith the LORD, as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of the LORD.
[21] And I will also take of them for priests and for Levites, saith the LORD.
[22] For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.
[23] And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.
[24] And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh." Isaiah 66:10-24
