‘I Don’t Think It Works the Way You Think It Works’


“That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand”
–Mark 4:12

ONE DAY, we shall know all.

But that day is NOT today.

And so, man stumbles around in his world, trapped, not only by the world’s many deceptions, but by man’s willingness to BELIEVE–while clinging to those superstitions–because man learned many of those deceptions at an early age from some authority figure.

But on that day when we will know all, we will KNOW that the number of deceptions believed and followed because the public was SURE those deceptions were the TRUTH will be MORE than the average person would now suspect.

“It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble.  It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so.”
Mark Twain

This leads to one of the most popular utterances around these parts.

“I don’t think it (whatever it happens to be at the moment) works the way you think it works.”

It matters little whether the topic of that observation is a microwave oven, a balky computer, faulty electrical matters, a popular medical procedure or device OR the latest story about some great societal change which has taken place, is going to take place or is going to take place in the near future.

“I don’t think it works the way you think it works.”

No doubt the reader may have already stumbled over some aspect of his everyday life which has caused him to mumble this–or some very similar–phrase.

Many already HAVE–and have taken note.

Many others HAVE–and provide a little comfort to themselves by insisting, “There has to be a perfectly good explanation.”

Many of this second group let the unexplained inconsistencies slide into that great pile of folders one keeps in one’s head marked “UNEXPLAINED.”

IF THE READER HAS NOT TAKEN NOTE: then he needs to increase his awareness of those things which go on around him.

IF one does not believe we live in the end times, the many inconsistencies between the stories one is told and what one sees with one’s own eyes will likely torment and afflict that person.


The perfect cure for this particular modern affliction is the same one Jesus advised almost 2000 years ago.

“And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.”
–Mark 13:37

HAS the reader noticed that what he is being told is NOT true?

DOES finding out the the reader is being LIED TO affect what he does in any way?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

DOES the reader believe he is saved?

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation


“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
