Revelation 9:6 ->evidence here that death is allowed or denied at the will of God, not man.
Revelation 9:5 and Revelation 9:15 ->establishment of a warning time, long enough, yet fixed.
Galatians 1:6 ->Paul does not do anything to "happy up" his readers or break the ice or use any rhetorical or literary devices before he his straight at the point. Don't assume you always have to go around to get to your point. Hit it direct.

Quote: "Managers and executives are not necessarily leaders. The real leaders in an organization may not have titles on their doors." -Phillip B. Crosby
Thought #1 ->Many organizations strive to force people to accept leadership from titles, rather than find leaders and force titles on them!
Thought #2 -> Wise managers and executives connect to real leaders.
Thought #3 ->Yet this post is true of the business world, and the Christian world, we'll spend fortunes on the people with titles, and next to nothing on the 'ordinary' people. Encourage, train, develop all through the organization, you don't know who is making the real impacts!
