Who Gets Wake Up calls?

OK, skip all the pleasantries and let’s get down to business, baby.  Can you say 50 BABY!!!!!  Inside joke.  Ok, but for real I came across a video I would like yalls to take a look at and tell me what you think.  First, I’m going to say a little something about the video and the meaning I THINK it has.  The video is from Malice of the Clipse and it’s called “Wake Up Calls” and in this video, mini movie where he is going through the motions of everyday life until one day he has to start making all kind of decisions about his life.  Long story short you can take a lot from this piece because it has so many underlying meanings and blunt force trauma meanings as well.

Check it out here:  Wake Up Calls

Now to the questions for today, who gets wake up calls?  I believe we all do, hold up at least the ones who believe.  Everyone gets warnings, some stronger than others depending on  who you are and how your releationship is with the Lord.  In the video Malice quotes Hebrews 12:5 and when ever someone quotes anything from the Bible I search it for myself on my cell (technology, isn’t it great)  and sure enough it’s right there in black and white.

Hebrews 12:5-11 (New King James Version)

5 And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons:
“ My son, do not despise the chastening of the LORD,
Nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him;
6 For whom the LORD loves He chastens,
And scourges every son whom He receives.”[a]
7 If[b] you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? 8 But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons. 9 Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live? 10 For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness. 11 Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.

Can you comprehend what was just said?  Let me know and we will continue this convo later on.  DEEP!!!!!!!

BTW, the Clipse latest album “Til The Caskets Drops” is an instant classic.  Go cop that and enjoy for your listening pleasures.
