All About Clocks!

WOODS

Some more mature people are still concerned about the word "Veneer". They might have had some bad experiences with veneering several years ago because veneering used to have a tendency to delaminate or separate because of changing humidity conditions. But today, because of stronger glues and new construction methods, there is not any problem with separating or warping. Actually veneers are much stronger and more stable than solid woods and they allow the manufacturers to be much more creative. They are able to create beautiful looks and even matched grain effects that they would be unable to do otherwise, or at such a great cost that the finished product would be overly expensive. Veneering actually dates back to ancient Egypt and Rome but it was not until the 17th century that veneering begin to be practiced more extensively.

Currently, there are some photographic processes that can print or engrave a popular wood grain on rugged hardboard panels. They have the same attractive appearance of real wood veneer but are usually less expensive. Some clock companies are using this process now on the interior back side of clocks to make clocks even more attractive than before.

Other Things of Interest...

IS IT TIME?

BURLAP TO CASHMERE, a popular contemporary Christian Band came out with a song a couple of years ago entitled B.I.B.L.E. If you haven't heard the song, the abbreviation B.I.B.L.E. in the song was Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth.

Have you come to the TIME in your spiritual life where you know for certain if you were to die TODAY, that you would have eternal life? There is a sentence in the Bible that tells you the Purpose of the Bible,and that is 1 John 5:13...These words (the Bible) I have written to you...so that you may know you have eternal life.

IF it was your TIME to die TODAY and stand before GOD and He asked you,"Why should I let you into Heaven?" Would you have the right answer?? There is another short sentence in the Bible that tells you HOW you can have Eternal Life, and that can be found in John 6:47. If you have a MINUTE or two, we would like you to hear THE GOOD NEWS...

1. God loves you and wants you to have the FREE Gift of peace and eternal life. The Bible says..."I have come that you might have life, and have it more abundantly." John 10:10 But something stands in the way of receiving this FREE Gift however, and that is our SIN.

2. God created us in His own image to have an abundant life with Him. And He gave us a will and freedom of choice. However, all of us have sinned and have separated ourselves from God. The Bible says...to get into Heaven we must be perfect. We must be like Jesus, never to have sinned. The passing grade is 100. So if we look at it that way - there's no way we can get into Heaven. So what are we to do? God realizes the problem and wants to help us, because He loves us.

3. God is Loving. It says so in the Bible (1 John 4:9). But the Bible also tells us that God says "I will not let the guilty go unpunished." So God is Loving and God is Just. There is a story that actually happened about a man named Garcia. He was in a foreign country that was under a Dictatorship and Garcia was a Freedom Fighter, a General. Someone was stealing supplies from their camp, so Garcia ordered that whoever was stealing would be whipped in public. It turned out to be his own frail mother. Garcia had to enforce his order and had to order the whipping, knowing it could kill his mother. Just as the whipping was about to happen, Garcia took off his coat & shirt, put his body over his mothers and took the whipping for her. Do you see what happened here and the similarity to what God has done for us? YES, God solved the problem of our sins, ordered punishment, but then Jesus appeared on our behalf.

4. God came to earth to live among us for awhile in the person of Jesus. And Jesus died for us on the cross. It's through the person of Jesus Christ (like Garcia) who took the punishment, who died on the cross and rose from the grave so that we may have eternal life. The Bible says..."God is on one side and all the people on the other side, and Jesus, Himself man, is between them to bring them together". 1 Timothy 2:5 Does everyone receive this gift? NO! Then how do we get this gift?

5. Through FAITH. By just believing that Jesus died and rose again for US and for YOU. The Bible says..."For by grace we are saved by our faith, and not by our good works, it is a FREE gift of God." Ephesians 2:8 For this FREE gift we now should show God our Thanks by living a life more pleasing to Him. *** Is this the TIME where it is making sense to you? *** If it is the right TIME and you would like to receive the FREE gift of eternal life, then The Bible says..."If you confess with your mouth you Believe in the Lord Jesus and Believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9

If you are ready to receive this FREE gift then you just need to repeat this prayer: Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and need your forgiveness. I believe that you died for my sins. I want to turn from my old life. And I now invite you to come into my new life. I want to put my trust in you for my eternal life and not in my own works. I thank you for your gift. In Jesus name I pray. Amen

Earlier you were told there was a short sentence in the Bible that tells you HOW you can have eternal life. The Bible says..."Verily, Verily I say to you, he that believes in Me (Jesus) has eternal life." John 6:47 If TODAY, in this HOUR, in this MINUTE, you accepted Jesus into your life - WELCOME into the family of God. Now become involved. Check out the web site www.ALPHAcourse.org. Find a location and Church (now in over 200 countries) where you can take this short, exciting course and learn more about Jesus and the Bible. It is non-denominational and non-threatening. And also become involved... With a church. With Reading the Bible. In Prayer. In fellowship with other Christians. and In telling others about Jesus Christ.
