Okay, first of all, the odds of your existence is something like 10 to the power of 2, 685,000 to one. That is a ten followed by 2, 685,000 zeros. The odds of my having the experience with Angels that I claim to have is actually astronomical, not that your odds of existing aren't. In fact, the odds of the reality of my actually having an experience with Angels really are incredibly more rare than your existence. I don't say this to boast. In fact, I say this because really, if you think about it, what are the odds of your reading what I am writing right now? Probably about as rare. You might not see it that way, but I do. In fact, I think of most anything in my life as a very rare occurrence. What are the odds I would have met my wife? I can write about this since this is the night of the end of Valentine's Day, but the fact is, the odds of my wife and I getting together are reproducing two kids are even greater than you can imagine. In fact, my life is against all odds. The fact that I am alive tonight is against many more odds than my existence. I almost died twice in the past five years. And that I am alive tonight to write this really are incredible odds, made even more incredible by my very existence in the first place.
I say this, because in a way, I think of the odds in which people do anything in life, including surviving a lightning strike, with those very rare people who have survived two. Now, if you think about the odds of which I am writing tonight, there are all kinds of odds on anything you want to know. In fact, you can go to Las Vegas and find odds on most anything. There were odds on President Trump surviving his first term as president. There are odds makers who sit around and try to figure the odds of his being impeached in the first six months of his presidency. And really, if you want to talk about odds, you can find odds on most any sport or any event you can imagine. There are people in Vegas who do nothing but sit around and take odds on anything you want to make a bed on.
Now, when I say that the Messiah can come most any day now, what are the odds He will be here tomorrow? Further, what are the odds I am correct when I say I KNOW how He will judge the world once He comes? And further, what are the odds that I am correct when I say that God will forgive ANY sin other than the sins of murder and suicide? I know those odds. I would say the odds of my being WRONG are greater than the odds of your existence! How is that when it comes to confidence? There are some 7.5 billion people in this world, each person with his or her own belief. There are leaders of religions that try to keep their believers all believing the same things. I understand this. In fact, I understand that I really AM WAY out there when it comes to conventional theology. But the fact is, the odds of one person having the right beliefs probably is greater than the odds of your existence. I say the odds of my Angels being right much less than the odds of your being wrong. How can I say this with such confidence? Easy. I say God told me. What are the odds of that??? I am Brother Ralphie writing for my Angels from The Angels of Life Institute. Peace. Brother Ralphie works from his study for the promotion of Peaceful living and inner Peace with God. He calls this the “Sanctity of Human Life Movement.”
