CLARITY – 7-20-18 Lost…and Restored


A Biblical Response to Current Events – 7-20-18


Lost…and Restored


What’s Happening:  “Sure, the Russian warship was found (by search teams of the Shinil Group), but 50% of the over $100 Billion in gold is going to be ‘restored’ to the Russian government. The ship was sunk (and found) about a mile off the coast of South Korea at about 1,400 feet of depth. It was sunk by the Japanese in 1905 during the Russo-Japanese War . Its cargo was Russian pay (   ‘The body of the ship was severely damaged by shelling, with its stern almost broken, and yet the ship’s deck and sides are well preserved,’ reported the Shinil Group, who plans to raise it.”


Knee-Jerk Response:  “Found or Restored, it’s a lot of money!”


Biblical Response:  “It is…and I’m glad that a portion is going to some worthwhile projects (though I’m not sure the Ruskies will do anything with the money we might approve). As to whether it should be considered ‘found’ or ‘restored,’ I guess it depends on to whom you talk.”


“Christians? Milton wrote ‘Paradise Lost’ (talking about all that was lost in the ‘Fall’). David Chilton wrote ‘Paradise Restored’ (talking about all that is restored in Jesus). We believe in giving back to the original owner (God) 100% of what was lost…of course, that doesn’t give a search company much incentive. Still, we are the main beneficiaries…and we suffered the brunt of the loss; so I guess the incentive is with us…where it should be.”


Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to realize all that was lost in the ‘Fall’ and strive to give everything back to its Original Owner; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
