Come the 8th of August, 2008, there will be more than one historical event in China, as some estimated 9,000 couples have will be married on the same day to celebrate the opening of the Olympic Games. The Chinese government had planned the Olympics to kick off on 8/8/08, due to the number “8″ being very lucky and sounding like part of the phrase “to get rich” in Mandarin. http:www.weirdasianews.com/2008/07/31/9000-couples-to-marry-on-lucky-8808/
In Moscow Newly-weds are calling it the day of triple infinity and believe a wedding on this day will bring luck according to the Kommersant newspaper
According to Biblical Numeric’s the number 8 in Hebrew represents New Beginnings and 888 represents the Holy Spirit; the sum of the tree of life http://www.asis.com/users/stag/godcount.html The Bible tells us in (2Co 5:17) So that if any one is in Christ, that one is a new creature; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. In Revelations we find these words
(Rev 21:5) And He sitting on the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And He said to me, Write, for these words are true and faithful. Why not make today your day for a fresh start, God is able to help you start afresh. Today can be the day you truly forgive that friend or loved one that hurt you so badly. Today could be the day that you let God through the Holy Spirit free you from whatever has you bound and keeping you from experiencing all that he has planned for you. Today can be the day that you take that first step towards realizing your dreams. It can be the day that you make an about face and change direction. It is all up to you !!! David said
(Psa 51:10) Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Things can change for you today because with God all things are possible.
Let us pray Father in heaven we Thank You for the opportunity to start anew. We are so blessed that you have provided us with grace and mercy. That you have patiently waited on us, not dealing with us as you could or should have. Lord help everyone who receives this e-mail to start anew no matter on what day they read it. Help them to realize that you are there and have always been there for them, through the best and worst of times. Help them right now as only you can in Jesus name we pray Amen. I hope and pray that you allow God to help you with whatever you are facing right now and that you allow him through his Holy Spirit to make all things in your life right now today. Be Encouraged and Blessed.
