SIGNS OF THE APOCALYPSE: Cheesus to Mac n Cheetos 

Scripture tells us when the end times come, the Lord will appear to save all who are eagerly awaiting him! (Hebrews 9:28) Cheesus has arrived, for who doesn’t like Cheetos and Jesus both?

Mac and cheese, a comfort food for these uncertain times, now comes wrapped in ground Cheetos dust and deep fried. Brought to you by the good folks at Burger King, purveyors of the hot dog, it must be the end times because the Lord himself said, “Listen! I’m standing at the door, knocking; if you hear my voice and open the door, I’ll come in to you and eat with you and you with me.” (Revelation 3:20)

When Jesus was with his disciples, he broke bread and gave it to them saying, “This is my body that is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” (1 Corinthians 11:24) 

So, while it may be a long shot, or it may be a contemporary miracle of transubstantiation in which the ordinary elements of grain, water, yeast, milk, and enzymes actually become the divine body and blog of the Lord Jesus Christ, the signs are all pointing to the arrival of the return of the long awaited lord and savior. 

If indeed we are what we eat, would then a mere taste of this sign would be sufficient for holiness? Or would we have to masticate mass quantities? Does Cheesus require faith or works? Would we have to be extremely corpulent to show our devotion to this God of fried cheese? Would homemade mac and cheese be as effective as Cheetos Mac and Cheese? If we were to pound or ground our own Cheetos, or top the casserole with the crunchy sticks (only the best), would this recipe taste the same?

Or is our comfort in the shared meal itself? Even if we eat alone, do our memories of family and friends attend our table and entertain us with their laughter and their stories. I know I lose my appetite when I’m alone, but when I remember my friends and family who’ve gone on before me, and I tell my daily stories to them, I feel connected to the ones I’ll someday join. Then I remember the stories of their lives, so they still live in my heart and mind, until I join them in the life beyond. 

In the meantime, I’ll laugh about the Cheeto Jesus and trust in the actual Jesus day by day. 

Will Burger King’s new Mac ‘n Cheetos be a fast food game-changer?
