Legendary artist’s from TDK, TMF, TWS, BSK just to name a few. did a FAT production on the 23rd yard out in Oakland, CA. Some pieces were a tribute to the fallen Mike Dream. It seems to me tho, no matter who paints in the 23rd yard, they always give respect to Mike. That shows how much Mike has been a big influence to the bay area graff scene. And he will always be a part of my foundation in writing.
It’s probably a couple years old but you can see the different styles that we have here in the bay area. The art form of graffiti or aerosol art, as Mike Dream would say,has progressed within the last couple decades. I love to see how art has been getting better and better.
The day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night. (II Peter 3:10)
Now we all kno that Jesus is coming back. The question is, when? Well if we knew, wouldnt we all act different? Wouldnt we be living the way we were suppose to be living? Most of us if not all, would try to get it right so we can be taken up with him when He comes back. No one wants to get left behind. If you dont know what im talking about then read about the rapture in the book of revelation after Jesus’ message to the 7 churches. I would explain it but thats a whole another story later.
Well in this scripture, it talks about when He will come back. It says He will come like a thief in the night. Its a metaphor for like most thiefs, you dont know when they will come to make their move. Sometimes they rob in the day sometimes they rob at night. Theres never knowing when they will come. And when they do, its a disappointment.
That goes the same with Jesus. We will not know when He is coming back for His children. So if we dont know, how are you with your walk? Are you still living in sin? Are you still playing with fire? If you are, i suggest you stop. Not every Christian is perfect. Im not perfect. I still have flaws but im working on it. And with the Holy Spirit, He can help you! All you have to do is surrender and lift it up to God. Tell Him what you need work on. He’ll tell you what you need to do. Just OBEY!
You dont want to wake up knowing that your loved ones is in heaven while you’re stuck here on earth trying to defeat the beast. Trust me, it wont be easy. Jesus said it himself that He will let the beast rule for a thousand years.
So where am I getting at? We should live like saved people. Start workin on our flaws. And be READY! Live as if Jesus is coming tomorrow because we will not know when He is coming. And if your not saved, i suggest you should be. God has given me the greatest gift ever! And thats salvation. And its free! I got a ticket to Heaven but i have to keep improving my walk. Be on top of my toes or how some of us say it, be on top of my GAME! Plain and simple, keep living holy and expect Him to come back tomorrow, or even tonight. Continue to share the love that He has given you and stop being bench warmers. Get out there save these lost souls! May you have a blessed day in Jesus name. Amen
