#Future

“This verse, quoted to countless individuals who are struggling with vocation or discerning God’s will, is not written to individuals at all. This passage is written to a whole group of people—an entire nation. For all the grammarians out there, the “you” in Jeremiah 29:11 isn’t singular, it’s plural. And you don’t have to be a Hebrew scholar to realize that “one” versus “many” is a big difference,”  according to Thom Turner, program manager at International Justice Mission. He is a graduate of Rutgers University (MA in English) and Cairn University (BS English Ed., BS Bible), and blogs at THIS LINK.

Turner further adds: “And the verse just before it is perhaps even scarier. For in Jeremiah 29:10, God lays down the specifics on this promise: that He will fulfill it after seventy years are completed for Babylon. In other words, yes, God says, I will redeem you—after 70 years in exile. This is certainly a far cry from our expectation of this verse in what God’s plans to prosper us really mean. He did have a future and a hope for them—but it would look far different than the Israelites ever expected.”

Despite this admonition and prompt to clarity on the now amplified verse, millions of Bible followers still take much solace from the verse for their personal lives while reading into this text the Lord's hope for a brighter future.  If you are among those who would like to capture that sentiment in a larger than life way, you may wish to visit our AMAZONE LINK.

Condo owner curations

Around the community where we have lived since November 2011, a condominium, or condo, is not hard to define, even if the 170 condo units represent a small number compared to the total of 1317 homeowners in our entire HOA. Condos are the form of housing tenure and other real property where a specified part of a piece of real estate is collectively (in common) owned. Use of land access to common facilities in the community such as the exterior of buildings, roadways, green belts, pathways, and other non-residential structures are executed under legal rights associated with the common ownership. These rights are controlled by the association of owners that jointly represent ownership of the whole piece.
