Help: If you can assist two obedient-to-God Sisters in Christ, known personally to TSaS, please send an email to unicornhaven.Earthlink.net and we will reply with their names and mailing addresses: we do not want that info herein due to the Oils circulating the globe. It would be wonderful if these two Sisters could share a place; alas, they live on opposite ends of the United States: Tampa and Sacramento, respectively.
——Sister #1 desperately needs her own place due to an untenable living arrangement with her abusive daughter and boyfriend: Sister provides her own food but is having to pay daughter over $400 a month just to sleep on their sofa yet they keep her up until dawn, then they sleep all day. Sister is considered the store's best employee but works at poverty wages thus has no move-in fees and not one stick of furniture.
——Sister #2 has 2 sons just now in college and still at home but do work part time to cover their own expenses; however, Sister's disability income was decreased due to her sons' ages. This has caused delinquent rent, utilities and inability to buy needed meds. It would be unconscionable for either sister to end up on the streets: we as their brethren in Christ must help with our tithes and even more as each of us can spare.
PET RAPTURE INSURANCE: "Business Week" magazine article by Mike D Paola of Bloomberg News, wrote about Bart Centre, 61, an avowed atheist and retired executive in New Hampshire, who set up a new company, Eternal Earthbound Pets promoted on the Web as "the next best thing to pet salvation in a Post Rapture World." The link imbeded in his company name will take you to the magazine article.
The cost for the first pet is $110 plus $15 for each additional pet; Mr. Centre will sign a 10-year contract with Christians who believe they will be taken up in the rapture, which must occur within 10 years of signing the contract. This means the contract is rendered null and void if said rapture occurs later than the 10 years: no refunds.
Centre said pets do not have souls and will not go to heaven, thus his company of atheists will care for the owners' pets by contract adoption, which implies no provision for those same Christians reclaiming their pet upon return to earth. The contract also states that the person's pet will be picked up within 18 to 24 hours after the owner is raptured.
"I was trying to figure out how to cash in on this hysteria to supplement my income." He said further, "If people believe in a seven year rapture, which you have to understand we atheists do not, then I figured why not cash in on it." He added, "If we thought the Rapture was really going to happen," Centre says, "obviously our rate structure would be much higher."
Sadly, Centre already has 100 people on contract, having conned them out of a minimum $11,000 up front: presuming each own one pet. Hypothecate that 25 own 1 pet, 25 own 2, 25 own 3 and 25 own 4: his pocket is now lined with $12,750 of the owners' hard-earned money— FOR A LIE! One company member, a woman with one pet, said she would take up to four pets if the event happens: dogs or cats. It appears the contract makes no provision for domestic breeds other than cats and dogs: i.e. birds, hamsters, etc.
Assume it costs $2 a day, often much more, to feed one cat or dog: amounts to $730 a year, not including vet bills. For one pet the contract is $110, two pets $125 and so on. The minimum cost to care for one pet for 7 years would be a minimum $5,110 or $511,000 for the 100 already on contract. Centre estimates at least 80K people believe in the rapture and have pets. If he gets only 20K people with one pet each on contract, he will have made a cool $2,200,000. The math equals S—C—A—M. There are far too many people already paying for this diabolical plan. Why?
The following facts say RIPE FOR SCAMING: Christians buying into this con do not know God's Word; do not know there is no 7-year rapture; do not know that all humans left behind will be dead from the "brightness of Christ's coming;" do not know God said animals have both soul and spirit and will go the way of man, "From dust to dust, but the spirit sleeps until Jesus arrives, then each spirit returns with Christ from whence it came." That means all spirits, human and animal, return to heaven with Jesus for 1000 years.
Animals will go to heaven along with true believers. The typical retort to this statement, if a person does believe animals have souls and spirits: "Animals will not go to heaven because they don't have Jesus!" Who says they do not have Jesus? We do not know for certain; BUT, what we do know is that animals always have behaved as God intended: in short, they obey God 'til their deaths.
Only man needed Jesus because he has not behaved as God intended and instructed in His Doctrine. Proof lies in the fact that, when Eve sinned and Adam agreed, God exiled them from Eden rather than destroy them and start all over, which He did consider; yet, mankind continued to sin worse and worse. A Saviour was needed to cleanse them of their "past" sins then teach them righteous behaviour. Had there never been Christ, only animals would go to heaven. Think on the strength of that truth! In the meantime, see Will My Beloved Pet Go to Heaven?
Federal Grants: Recently, TSaS heard an author talking about grants his current book reveals; what he calls "free money." He tested the system by filing for three of them and, in a very short time, he received $125, $250, and $1500 respectively. Since he does not need financial assistance, he donated the funds to others in real need. By the way, we have told our two Sisters in need about this; but, by the time they find the right grants and wait for the money, it might be way too late. So, please remember: "all things equal."
Millions of US citizens are suffering today's economy: job loss, home foreclosure, auto repossession, hungry, living on streets, unpaid medical/dental expenses or need money for one or the other or both; unpaid personal bills; need help with business expenses to prevent more job losses. The needs go on and on in the long list of available grants.
There are about 4000 myriad federal grants available for the asking that are meant to help the general US populace. Anyone needing financial aid should go to the US Government website, search for its Grant pages, then search for specific aid or aids needed: one at a time. Key words: help buy food, help pay rent, help pay personal bills, help repair home or make it green, help buy car, help repair car, help pay medical/dental bills, help get medical/dental treatment, help get medical supplies/equipment (diabetic needs, walkers, hospital bed, etc), help start a business, help pay business bills, help pay student loan, and any other specific needs not mentioned herein.
These grants are not government advertised but, for most people, are easily obtained for the asking. A qualifying person can file for more than one grant as needed. Most grant applications are brief, can be filled out/submitted online and others mailed to you upon request. Dollar amounts can range from $100 to at least $10,000, possibly more, and never have to be repaid. Approval is usually quick and a check is cut/mailed almost immediately. IF you need help, get online and go to our Federal Government's website! It was our money in the first place: it is truly not "free money," rather a small payback made available by persons you elected into either State or Federal positions of power.
Bob of Oregon Humor! "WALKING THE DOG" – author unknown
A man was flying from Seattle to San Francisco. Unexpectedly, the plane was diverted to Sacramento along the way. The flight attendant explained that there would be a delay, and if the passengers wanted to get off the aircraft the plane would re-board in 50-min.
Everybody got off the plane except one lady who was blind. The man had noticed her as he walked by and could tell she was blind because her Seeing Eye dog lay quietly underneath the seats in front of her throughout the entire flight.
He could also tell she had flown this very flight before because the pilot approached her and said, 'Kathy, we are in Sacramento for almost an hour. Would you like to get off and stretch your legs?' The blind lady replied, 'No thanks, but maybe Buddy would like to stretch his legs. He might even need to pee.'
Picture this: All the people in the gate area came to a complete standstill when they looked up and saw the pilot walk off the plane with a Seeing Eye dog! The pilot was even wearing sunglasses. People scattered. They not only tried to change planes, but they were even trying to change airlines!
True story... Have a great day and remember, THINGS AREN'T ALWAYS AS THEY APPEAR. A DAY WITHOUT LAUGHTER IS A DAY WASTED!!!
