One of my favourite kings in history is the great king Nebuchadnezzar. He was very, very powerful, he made his name in history and even has a very large bottle of wine named after him. But he lived, and died.
Then there was the lovely great king Darius, he was a Persian ruler. He did a lot of good, he too, lived and died.
I also loved the great Persian king called Xerxes I, wow what a powerful man! He too made his mark in history, and he also lived a good live and then he died!
Hitler, as powerful as he was, he’s not here now! He sadly made his mark in history. So far, none of the above named lived to be over one hundred years old. History is more than a lifetime, Powerful people, whoever they were, or whoever they are now, they won’t be a ruler forever. Us humans, our time to do good or bad or nothing at all, is short, it might be some who are here on this Earth, make a difference age just five, or like the great, to me she is great, the awesome Christina Noble OBE. She is still with us. Her books they are inspirational.
But I digress, with powerful rulers, there has always been wars, there is a least ten major wars happening right now around the world, and has been going on for years and years, where children, women, men they are all been murdered!
So, who is the latest ruler in history, Putin? His war will come and go. I believe, God who has the world in His hands, knows the beginning and the end, He knows Kings or Rulers, we are so tiny in His vast universe. I love that video that shows Earth, then it pulls back and shows the next bigger planet, dwarfing the Magnificent Earth that we live on, then the video pulls back again and the Earth isn’t even a dot next to it! WOW we are all part of a bigger picture. There are lots of videos like this but one of them is called, Planet Earth compared to others, but as clever as mankind is, they cannot stop themselves from dying, or from fighting each other!
I try to avoid watching the news, but I can’t escape it, for at work there is a television in the office and one worker always have it on the BBC and it replays constantly every hour. It is a worrying time, for us all, if we bury our heads in the sand or not, wars around the world, they are still happening and life is still happening in our own little corner of the world and death. My Lovely, hardworking Mummy is going for her dementia assessment on Thursday, and my lovely Auntie has breast cancer. So, despite the wars, around the world, there is still sadness, near and far.
I have read the last book in the Bible, the Revelations, so I know how it all ends and I reading now, again, about a great, kind, and highly respected man called Job. He went through hell and back! He ended up a Winner!
So, if you haven’t read The Bible lately, now would be a good time, first watch the video I mentioned, it is not a religious video, but it is absolutely fabulous! My favourite translation is The Living Bible, it is easy to read and understand, or the Good News Bible.
