Do you ever have one of those nights where you just toss and turn and turn and toss?  You feel about as restless as a bull in a rodeo, then finally you succumb to the urge to look at the clock….and then…you realize it is the exact same time you woke up the night before.   But how can that be?  I resisted the urge to look at the clock for at least fifteen minutes, so how can I possibly look at the clock at the exact same time?

Well, normally I would just pass this off to a whatever, but this time (literally) was a bit different.  Seeing 2:19am or 4:25 is no big deal, but two days in a row it was 3:33am.  So, perhaps there wouldn’t be quite as much meaning, if I hadn’t just been discussing the importance of God’s Word emphasizing important phrases numerous times during bible study yesterday.  But I still kinda played it off and forgot about it until an earlier meeting with a co-worker.

This co-worker and I were just randomly discussing work-related items, when I mentioned that I had woken up two days in a row at 3:33am to her.  She looked at me and said, “Oh my gosh, my son was born at 3:33am.”

We both just looked at each other in disbelief.  So, I quickly googled 333 thinking it maybe had a bad meaning since it is half of ya know.  Anyways, I was pretty shocked to find that all the research led to quite the opposite.

Ezekiel 33:3 says, “He sees the sword coming against the land and blows the trumpet to warn the people”.

 Jeremiah 33:3 says, “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know”.

John 33:3 Whoever accepts his testimony can affirm that God is true.

Now I have a choice to make.  Do I believe what God’s Word says, or do I just shrug it off as merely coincidence?  Well, I don’t know about you, but I have found that nothing happens by chance.  And what I have read from the Scriptures is that Now is the time to spread the gospel like never before.  We have to stand up and speak out.

So, I want to urge each and every one of you reading to spend each day spreading the gospel.  Don’t slink back in fear.  Speak out for your Lord and Savior.  Encourage those around you, pray, love and trust in Jesus.
