Rod's Corner

 

This is a story about four men named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody.  There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it, Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.  Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody's job.  Everybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when actually Nobody accused Anybody.

 

FOOD FOR THOUGHT...
1.Some minds are like concrete--thoroughly mixed up
and permanently set.
2.If the church wants a better pastor, it only needs to pray
for the one it has.
3. Quit gripping about your church, if it were perfect you
couldn't belong.
4. We were called to be witnesses not lawyers.
5.When you get to your wits end, you'll find God lives there.
6.Many people want to serve God ,but only as advisors.
7.Opportunity may knock once, but temptation bangs on your door for years.
8.The Will of God will never take you where the Grace of
God will not protect you.
9.We don't change the message, the message is supposed to change us.

 

My Mother fell one day before I was born. the Doctor told her I wasn't going to make it, my skull was crushed. My left ear almost rotted off. I was held on a pillow and cried until I was 2 years old. Herb Doctor mixed up some medicine, it was clear, he put 2 drops in my ear and rubbed around the ear, and i stopped crying and went to sleep. He told Mother I would get well now. Later Mother went back to get another bottle just in case I needed it. The place was empty and other people told her there never was a doctor in that building. Not long after that I had Scarlet Fever, and then Whooping Cough, and that left me with Bronchial Asthma and it got worse every year. I didn't get to go to school until a killing Frost. The Doctor kept telling I was living on borrowed time. He heard me trying to breathe when he got out of his car. Mother sent for the Preacher. He ANOINTED ME WITH OIL and Prayed for me and I started breathing good and slept all night. I took a shot every 2 days from 14-16 years old to get rid of asthma. God called me to preach when I was 15 and I ran from Him for 20 years. May 1972 I was Ordained, then I started having family problemís, then a nervous breakdown. The day before I got out of the Hospital, my House Burned Down. Then a divorce, we had 5 children. I told God I would go anywhere He sent me but N.C.or TN. After spending 3 years in N.C. the V.A. cut my check down to $104.00 a month and my wife was only working 1 day a week after insurance came out she got a check for $1.95 We had a 2 year old truck and new car repossessed. Our Credit ruined and lost everything we had. Yes, we had to move in with my mother in Kingsport TN. I put my $104.00 Check in the collection plate in N.C. 1 YEAR LATER the V.A. sent me a letter to tell me they made a mistake and owed me $5.000.00 and I liked $200.00 a month getting what I was supposed to be getting. Then God gave me 2 VISIONíS.

Some people don't believe in Vision's but I do. one morning got up after 9 hrs. sleep and I was not taking medication. I was talking to God all of a sudden the roof of the house parted, I saw a big ball traveling faster than anything I have ever seen heading toward me ,and I wasn't afraid ,when it god arms reach of me it exploded but it didn't make any noise it was loaded with thing's and I saw all of them I asked the Lord how that happened and He said, in a fraction of a second He gave me a photo static memory. I saw every thing that happened in my life until that moment. I went and asked my mother and she started crying and told me the same story. She told God if He would heal me she would see that I was a Preacher. The Lord said Satan would rather see me dead and in HEAVEN, than alive on earth. since then the Doctor's have told my wife 3 times I was dieing 6 month's ago the Doctor said he is already dead, my wife said don't you let him die. He said, Dealie I am not God, she said no you arenít, but I know God, she started praying in my ear. The ambulance crew the Doctor and others joined hand's and started praying .I died going down the steps at my apt. a good 20 minutes or more all of a sudden I started shouting and praising God. Then I started Praying. God is not through with me yet. but whatever He has for me to do sure makes the devil nervous. This is just a preview; I hope I can tell you the whole story some time. Neal.
