15 YEARS --- LOOKING OUT THE WINDOW---9/11/2001
By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com
WHAT IS A WINDOW? TO ME THE WINDOW OF HOPE?
THERE IS A WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY BEFORE US....
1 Corinthians 13:12 (KJV) For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face:
now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
1 Corinthians 13:12 (NLT) Now we see things imperfectly as in a cloudy mirror, but then
we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but
then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.
I have been a full time pastor 35+ years and before that I was involved in the ministry in music
I find my self --- PEERING OUT THE WINDOW --- the glass doors at church often.
I go to church to pray and often I find myself looking through the glass doors praying.
Every Wednesday night, I am at church one hour early and after tuning the guitars and setting
things up, I find myself going to the glass doors and looking out and praying.
I am at church one hour early on Sunday morning and Sunday night, in my 27 years here as
pastor of a small rural church
I find my self standing longingly watching the traffic going up and down 101, praying, dreaming,
hoping, EXPECTING people to come. I really peer out the windows hoping God's son, Jesus
will dwell with us and we welcome the Holy Spirit's presence to help us worship and praise.
THE WINDOW HAS MEANING TO ME.
Sometimes I listen as my wife and grandchildren as they are giggling and playing.
I will leave my office and stand at the sliding glass doors an so enjoy watching them playing
in pool. THE WINDOW HAS MEANING TO ME.
At home in my study, I often turn my chair to the window and ponder God's word and search
my heart and motives. We keep a 50 pound salt block for the deer to lick and I stand and watch
the deer run and play. THE WINDOW HAS MEANING TO ME.
Other times I stand at a SPIRITUAL WINDOW... I think of hurting people? I think of heaven?
I think about POTENTIAL and REAL CHANGE!
PLEASE HEAR MY HEART TODAY ---
I BELIEVE THE DARKER THE NIGHT THE GREATER THE LIIGHT.
I STAND AT NIGHT AND LOOK WITH MY HEART --- MY GOD CAN HANDLE THIS SITUATION.
I SEE THE HISTORY OF PEOPLE'S PAIN, HURT, BITTERNESS AND HOPELESSNESS AND
I FEEL A SERMON I COULD NEVER PREACH... I LOOK THROUGH THE WINDOW OF TIME...
LET US DISCUSS WHY ON 9/11/ 2001 THE TARGET WAS THE WORLD TRADE CENTER?
THERE WERE 7 BUILDINGS THAT COMPOSED THE WORLD TRADE CENTER PLAZA,
THE FREEDOM CENTER!
Matthew 12:25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against
itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:
UNITED WE STAND...
THE 7 BUILDINGS OF THE THE WORLD TRADE CENTER BECAME A SYMBOL TO THE
WHOLE WORLD... ESPECIALLY THE TWIN TOWERS... THE WAS 12 MILLION SQUARE
FEET IN THE TOWERS.
1. WTC #2 --- NORTH TOWER ---- 2. WTC #2 --- THE SOUTH TOWER...
BOTH HAD 110 STORIES, AT THE TIME OF BUILDING THEY BECAME THE TALLEST
BUILDINGS IN THE WORLD.
THIS COMPLEX SPOKE TO THE WHOLE WORLD OF PEACE, UNITY AND CO-OPERATION
AND IT BECAME A GLOBAL FINANCIAL DISTRICT.
THIS WAS AN IN YOUR FACE TESTIMONY OF MAN'S DEDICATION TO WORLD PEACE
AND THE GLOBAL MARKET PLACE... IT WAS A LIVING SYMBOL OF UNITY, PROSPERITY,
HOPE, PEACE AND FREEDOM.
THE WTC WAS ALSO KNOW AS THE FREEDOM CENTER...
The TWIN TOWERS had thick external walls of support, with the remainder of the support system
being in the center of the buildings which also housed the elevator systems of the tall structure.
The building had a 408 feet tall antenna on the top.
THE TOWER WAS MEASURED 1776 FEET TALL... THE YEAR OF THE USA.
I BELIEVE THAT ON 9/11/2001 THERE WERE MANY PEERING OUT THE WINDOW
THAT QUICKLY LEARNED GOD TAKESOUR HURT AND PAIN AND REVEALS HIS
LOVE TO THE HOPELESS.
Matthew 24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all
these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and
kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers
places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and
shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
