Occasionally–VERY occasionally–an everyday NEED will cross over into the consideration of the theory of eternal life.
And so it was that while pondering the annoying streaks in the computer glass which one faced, the idea for this piece came rushing into one’s head.
“Those streaks are HARD to clean! I’ve tried almost EVERYTHING! And they still mock me whenever I look at the computer screen–which is often EVERY DAY.”
A number of different potential remedies were tried.
GREAT HOPES were placed on a common commercial window cleaner, when it was first used. After all, the product’s advertising PROMISED that the glass which was cleaned with this concoction would be SPOTLESS!
But, sadly, it was NOT as effective as had been promised.
The window cleaner only seemed to move the spots around to a different place on the screen.
MAYBE there was something lacking in the cleaning technique?
And so, a NUMBER of different publications were consulted, each which PROMISED to reveal to the reader the secrets of (a) clean glass (screen).
BUT, still the streaks and spots appeared (as if by magic) whenever any attention was directed to that computer screen–which was EVERY DAY.
This really was becoming quite the everyday annoyance.
One of the items which was PROMISED to deliver clean glass was the modern microfiber cloth.
Or rather, the utilization of USING A MICROFIBER CLOTH while cleaning dirty glass.
One had to admit: there was less residue and waste from paper towels whenever a microfiber cloth was used.
BUT, the microfiber cloth did not solve our streaked glass problem.
FINALLY, a solution presented itself.
What was the solution to the perplexing problem of a dirty computer screen?
FIRST, some quiet, reflective thought was applied to the situation.
SECOND, one made a trip to the local DOLLAR STORE.
THIRD, one made a trip inside the DOLLAR STORE and located the display they had for READING GLASSES.
LASTLY, one found a LENS CLEANING SOLUTION from this display and bought it for slightly over a dollar.
After transporting the precious cleaner home, it was sprayed onto the computer screen and wiped off with first, a paper towel and then, secondly, with a microfiber cloth.
NOW, we stare at a clean glass screen on our computer.
Is there a moral to this account?
As in, ‘continuing to press on even if further difficulties present themselves is a valuable end times lesson.’
It might begin with the lessons learned from cleaning glass. BUT THEN, it might involved something a little more substantial.
Hopefully, the reader does not have a dirty computer screen.
IF he does, it is genuinely hoped that the reader will PERSEVERE until this problem is solved…
…as it is hoped that the reader will persevere in the face of OTHER, more-daunting end times problems.
DOES the reader believe that dirty glass will be the biggest problem he will face during the end times?
It is not YET too late–although time is surely running out: there is still a LITTLE 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?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?
THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“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.”
