God’s Grace with Gary 4/5/21

    Hello, this is pastor gary from first baptist church of laplata. While we were celebrating life this past weekend, the Egyptians were celebrating death. A new museum in Cairo that was built to house the mummified remains of 18 kings and 4 queens, received their shipment from across town via a “Golden Parade.” Each mummy was transported on its own specially designed, nitrogen filled, individually titled golden barge on wheels. Marchers in period clothing were part of the procession which included fireworks, honorary gunfire, and fanfares. Based on an inscription discovered in King Tut’s tomb, many fear the “Curse of the Pharaohs” for disturbing their rest by moving them; in fact, a train crash and the blocked Suez canal had already been blamed on the curse—even though the mummies had not yet been moved. The preserved remains are over 3000 years old, which is quite remarkable; however, that’s all they are: remains. The souls of these kings and queens will spend eternity in either heaven or hell—and probably hell since the ancient Egyptians were polytheistic pagans. Regardless of where they will spend eternity, these Pharaohs are powerless to cause a curse on earth, and they will one day be resurrected to give an account to God and be judged along with every one else. Their status in life and their fanfare in death will be irrelevant as Romans 2:11 reminds us, “For there is no respect of persons with God.”
