For more than a week I was without work that is until Friday or should I say Thursday for that is when I received phone call requests? Anyway it meant that I had three places to visit and three jobs to do, the last one the biggest. The old guy who had moved in to the house in January had been trying to get someone to separate two lights both operating on the one switch. The strange thing was the lights were in adjacent rooms! Evidently the previous owner had a wall built to make two separate rooms. There had been a large archway in the original set up. However they hadn’t got as far as to put an extra switch in to allow independent control of the lights. Furthermore the now two rooms had their ceilings lowered or rather a false ceiling had been constructed beneath the original ceilings. My job was to disconnect one light from the existing circuit and then re-feed it from another source. It all sounds easy but doing it wasn’t! Anyhow by the time I’d gotten home I didn’t much feel like doing anything else so I didn’t. Nevertheless I got more calls in the evening but refused them all except for one which I promised I would look at on Saturday morning. The other requests were too large for me to tackle but this one was very simple, not really a job at all in the real sense. The lady on the phone explained her predicament in that her lights had fused whilst at the same time indicating that she knew what the problem was, a faulty lamp had caused the fuse to blow. She wanted to know how to replace the fuse. These particular fuses are of the cartridge type and are easy to replace once the fuse carrier could be removed. She was having difficulty in doing that so I explained to her what she had to do and how to replace the fuse as she had some in stock. As long as she didn’t use the faulty light all would be OK and I would pop in on my way to my supplier in the morning to check everything. I had planned to go to the supplier anyway. So I arrived at nine o’clock as promised and she welcomed me in. Everything was in order so I didn’t even need to get out my tools. Instead she offered me a drink of tea and we chatted for a half-hour. When she had opened the door to me I recognised her immediately but said nothing. She is a Christian lady who once went to the same church as myself but she didn’t recognise me, why would she? She had been a member there for seven years and I for ten though perhaps I wasn’t there for the whole period that she had been or vice-versa. In any case she didn’t remember me. I told her that I knew she was a Christian and that I was also and she asked how I knew and which church had I attended. I told her which church, the same one as herself but still the penny hadn’t dropped. I think she assumed our paths had not crossed during our time at the same church. I said I had seen her on several occasions at church venues and functions and she understood. Naturally we talked about the faith and she asked if I was attending a church at present. I am not and I told her so. We talked about prophecy and she showed me some things concerning the subject. It appears we are both interested in such things. I had to leave and she had to get ready for a friend who was calling. They were off to some church event in Liverpool for the day and I was invited along. I declined the offer for I had other plans. She presented me with a sealed DVD labelled ‘The Daniel Project’ for me to view and then pass on to someone else. The material concerns biblical prophecy and takes the form of an hour and a half’s length documentary, a separate half-hour interview and a short three and a half-minute summary of the presentation. It is produced by Studio Scotland Ltd. I had planned to do some gardening after lunch but decided to watch the two-hour presentation instead. I was glad I did for I found it fascinating and well worth the viewing. For myself it was more of an edifying experience but for those who do not believe in God, Jesus and The Bible it would prove to be a real eye-opener. There are many prophecies in Scripture, well over three hundred, and many have been fulfilled. Some have yet to be as I have mentioned in many of my previous posts. The presentation is not out to win souls and it leaves the viewer to ponder the facts for themselves. The real challenge to anyone is presented in the interview following where the facts are presented logically. If you get the chance to view the DVD or wish to purchase a copy I would strongly recommend it as being worthwhile. Incidentally the narrative is presented by a self-confessed atheist who himself had questions to ask in the interview. They were answered.
Here is the link to the site where you may purchase the DVD http://www.thedanielprojectmovie.com/index.htm
A film called The Daniel Connection based on the documentary has been produced and if I get the chance I will certainly go and see it.
I got to do some gardening later in the afternoon.
