A football free hat trick

Part 1. Snow joke
TLF was torn. On the one hand, TLF is a big fan of snow. On the other, rather like King Lear, TLF was ready to rage at the weather Gods. Mr TLF all signed up for a stint on the beer stall (with or without his knowledge I don’t think is particularly relevant to my line of defence m’lud) and then the game is called off. A real ale retail opportunity denied and brownie points earned by default. He expressed his significant disappointment, but methinks Mr TLF protesteth too much.
An unplanned spare Satday? How do we cope? TLF seeks respite in baking while Mr TLF goes a bit weird in M&S and is suckered into a very odd beverage purchase. A G&T tea, with ‘edible gold leaf. Tasted as bad as it sounds.

Never leave a man unattended in M&S. He will purchase nonsense

Part 2. The joy of text?
At least this Satday was planned. Lesta’s home game moved for the footballing TV Gods and a previously agreed eschewing (BOOM!) of an away game. Lunch, further progress through the Sopranos box set (YES, alright…but when we come late to ‘a thing’ we like to come really late) and regular text updates from designated text monitors at both games were the agenda of the day.

You’d think it would be the latter that was to be the cause of most angst. But the DVD player did its best to get in on the act; having a minor breakdown in the middle of an attempted hit on our eponymous hero (Tony Soprano, not Mr TLF). TLF was of course tempted to ‘hit’ the DVD player but went for the more usual repair technique Chez TLF – swearing at the inanimate object. More swearing at inanimate objects was to follow as my phone informed me that the Mighty Saints had conceded FIVE and Lesta THREE. The DVD player did at least start working again, I wasn’t so reassured about my football teams.

Part 3. Up for the Cup
In a spectacularly barren footballing spell, TLF finds herself going for a hat-trick of football free Satdays, eschewing (BOOM!) an away trip to Wealdstone in the interests of accumulating brownie points that can be converted into a long distance awayday (well at least further than Ruislip). There was not even a Lesta game to consider, Lesta having absented themselves from the FA Cup, following defeat by the mighty (ahem) Newport. Not that I have anything against Newport, who did the decent thing on this particularly Satday by scoring in the 88th minute against Manchester City to secure the TLF’s joint bet of a City win with both teams to score. “Diolch,” as they say in Wales.

If there is no football, there has to be a boozy lunch, which was preceded by a trip to the St Albans Museum to see their Board Games exhibition. Turns out there is a way Lesta might one day win the FA Cup after all…

    Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.
