The Peace of Fleece

Have a lot of questions in your life? Got a very hard decision to make in the near future? Who to marry? Which job to take? Should you sell that stock? What about some less important decisions? Which route to take to work? How much money to give to church? Which church to attend? Which socks to wear? Which dishwasher to buy?

Why base your decision on random chance? How would you like a solid peace about your decision?

Well, you deserve a real peace from something very powerful, yet very soft. At the same time, your decision should be based on the scripture. But why spend hours and hours in Biblical study that can leave you with severe eye strain? Why spend days and days in prayer? Why bother the spiritually mature counselors in your life with your tedious questions that they answer so quickly, leaving you embarrassed for your lack of maturity?

What you need is a Peace of Fleece®. “My Peace of Fleece® surpasses anything I’ve ever understood before,” said Nicky Miles from Tuscaloosa, Alabama. “The peace I feel is indescribable. The peace from knowing my decisions are scriptural, without a lot of time consuming painful soul searching… is so… is so… well… it’s wonderful.”

Everyone can rest assured that any decision based upon using the Peace of Fleece® is 100% scriptural. “In the Bible, Gideon wanted to make a decision. What did he do? He used a fleece,” said Lesley Sabene, Peace of Fleece® creator from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, answering her own question. “Since the Bible reports that Gideon used a fleece, it should be something we all do before making decisions. Using a Peace of Fleece® guarantees the correct Biblical path for your life without any additional prayer, Bible evaluation, or counselor interrogation.

There are endless ways to use the Peace of Fleece® for peaceful, scriptural decision making. Here are some ideas.

* Top or Bottom: Let the sides of the Peace of Fleece® represent “yes” and “no”. Ask a question. Throw the Peace of Fleece® high in the air. See which side faces up.

* Quick Coffee House Advice Fleece: Set the Fleece in a high traffic area near your table. Wait for the first person who comments on the fleece. Ask the person your question. Give him/her 20 seconds to answer the first thing on his/her mind. A blank stare should be taken as a “no.”

* Two Fleece Toss: Buy two. Let each Peace of Fleece® represent an outcome. Determine a starting line. Toss both Peace of Fleece® as far as you can over the line. See which fleece goes the greatest distance.

* Fall Leaf Fleece: Buy any number Peace of Fleece®-- one for each possible outcome (e.g., buy 5 fleece for 5 different refrigerator brands; 4 for 4 sets of relatives to visit on Christmas; 3 for 3 potential husbands, etc.) Place the Peace of Fleece® around a tree one evening during the Fall. The next day, see which Peace of Fleece® has accumulated the most leaves.

I feel better just knowing that this product is available! I have just one question, what if I want to ask my question multiple times like Gideon did, is there any kind of guarantee for the same answer, just for certainty?

Stefan said...

Haha, an excellent example of bad application of Scripture! Wasn't Gideon displaying a lack of trust of God by asking for the sign of the fleece (and not once, but twice!)?

Cristy,

From a Biblical perspective, your question is flawed. Since God's will for our lives is time dependent, one minute, the Peace of Fleece may give one answer, while the next minute, a different answer.

The question is not whether the Peace of Fleece will give the SAME answer. The question is whether the Peace of Fleece will give the CORRECT answer for the moment.

When we get out of God's soveriegn will with a bad decision one day, we can rest assured that the Peace of Fleece will get us back in His will.

For example, if you use the Peace of Fleece to determine your route to work at 6:30 am, it may very well give you a differnet answer than if you use it at 6:31 am.

This reasoning can be expanded to questions concerning whether to change jobs or marry a person. They are all time dependent.

Bottom line is that "no" it will not always give the SAME answer, but the Peace of Fleece will always give the CORRECT answer.

Hope this helps you in your journey.

Stefan,

You also need to study your Bible more. Gideon is obviously one of the "good" characters in the Bible. When you find a "good" character such as Gideon, then all of his actions must be an example of how to properly live.

Glad to see that your tongue has been placed back firmly in your cheek, Brother Slawson!

Praise the Lord that he chooses to use us sinners to work out His plan of redemption, in spite of our flaws and blemishes. May the Holy Spirit continue to sanctify us day after day, and conform us to the image of God.

Sounds like it may be a great product, but I'm just not sure if I should purchase it. Hmmm. Maybe I oughta put out a fleece....

Piece of fleece? Why pay good money for it? Can't I just rip up an old wool sweater and use that to get the same providential results? Maybe the sweater can tell me where to find a job. That'll be quite a testimonial to my non-believing friends...

Can I get rush shipping? I'm not sure which tie to wear to church. . . .
