Doh! Sign of Jonah

It amazes me that I finally realized that the story, in Jonah, of the penitant Ninevites and their salvation from destruction is Lent preceeding Easter.40 days-doh! Ashes-duh! Fasting and penance-double-doh!

It is worth it to read the Bible daily. It pays to read it with the eyes of faith.

Please consider sharing these kind of insights so I can learn new things too.

We have been studying the book of revelation at church but my ideas about the book are far removed from our priests version and I feel tainted from the protestant shows I've seen.

I keep wondering if the Antichrist will mimic the true holy trinity with an unholy trinity and I wonder how or who will come as their version of the holy spirit. I wonder how they're gonna pull that off, but then maybe I shouldn't concern myself with such things and continue praying for real issues. I don't want to know things that I shouldn't know anyway.

I suppose the best rule of thumb would be to pray to the Holy Spirt to help me think - rather process the information I read and see correctly.
