Present your case.' says the Lord 'set forth your arguments' says Jacobs King

Tell us you idols, what is going to happen. Tell us what the former things were.

So that we may consider them and know their final outcome. Or declare to us the things to come,

Tell us what the future holds, so that we may know you are Gods. Do something whether good or bad,

So that we will be dismayed and filled with fear. but you are less than nothing and your words are utterly worthless, whoever chooses you is detestable. who hath wrought and done it, calling forth the generations from the beginning? I, the Lord, am the first, and with the last I am He.

In this year 2016 the 1st week in August, I had occasion to speak with a Christian headmaster, the spiritual aspect dominated the conversation, I expounded many things 'that I believe only the Lord had put in my consciousness.' my understanding of the force and the 'reason' ( if that's the best description?) behind the Dunblane shootings contained in the earlier poem was one of the subjects discussed, obviously the person being a headmaster would have aroused my memory, so much so ;I raised the question as to whether there were any former students of the school showing promise in life, and if so a positive approach to help them may be a good thing, the headmaster replied he had links 'i believe with the school, or if not with someone, who would be able to contact former pupils, as I write the headmaster is still on holiday which was about to commence a day or two from the time of our conversation,anyway instead of just waiting for the headmaster to act after a few days passed I put this search into a computer myself..' ( people doing well in life after being in Dunblane school shooting ) Andrew Murray's name appeared, It was a strange feeling to realise that among others he was who I was praying for.' I also realised he had just led out team G B..' Therefore It seems to me God is already moving him into position, this leads me by what I know of the events in his life and God, to say that he should be moved even further, into the position of leader of the U K.' It would be a change from a career politician, and I believe would raise the stature of the Nation.'

Dear poet... you have incited mine sinews! I have emphatically been moved by your prose here sir... What I have to say I pray does not offend you. I have become callous to death... I smile when death occurs... I only pray with grief for those who mourn the loss of the Dead... I pray to Jehovah with Joy thanking him for the free of those who have passed onto better mansions. Well I prayed to outlive many on this Earth... yet dear poet I look forward to death on This Bitter Earth. Much love, jame

It is interesting to see 1996 to 2016. God's time table is often many years beyond our perspective. It is always interesting to look back and see how our live hav been directed.

Yes Richard, it's almost as if I was writing about someone else here, It's most strange how things pan out, I can remember the direction I was heading that day, although I had switched to a country lane, so I don't think I could find the spot I parked up at.' Thank you for your comment.!
