Food for Thought


The World Cup is a phenomenon that has gripped the world like never before. I remember being young and having no interest in the game. That was until I met my good friend Tino (Juventino) who was an incredible soccer player. We attended HIgh School together but did not really know each other. He showed me the value of the game when I used to think that is was just a bunch of guys kicking the ball with no plan at all, I as totally wrong. That year (1981) I wrestled and our team won League Champions, that same time our Soccer team also won. Because Wrestling was a bigger sport, we got a lot of fame but our Soccer team won with little fan fare. But things have now all changed. It is amazing to see the World glued to the TV set and see countries here in Asia routing for their team with blazing frenzy. But let us not forget as Christians when the real “World Cup” will happen. It is kind of scary but the Bible tells us that the Bowl Judgments will take place during the second half of the Tribulation. It is when the Lord will “pour out “ His wrath upon the unbelieving world. We are still living in a time of Grace, man can still be saved. But there will come a time when that time of grace will be gone and God will bring judgment on the earth. “Let us work while it is still day, the night is coming when no man will work”.
