Shane Missler may only be 20, but he’s already made history. He just won a $450 million jackpot, the fourth-largest in Mega Millions’ history. And he’s already becoming a social media legend just by leaving his Facebook account up for people to comment. People from across the country are flooding his page to leave well wishes (or to plug their products.) The young man often posted online about persevering and not giving up, and now it looks like he was foreshadowing his own big win.


1. He Won the Mega Millions with a Quick Pick Ticket That He Bought with Scratch-Off Winnings

20-year-old Shane Missler won the fourth-largest jackpot in Mega Millions’ 21-year history. He chose to take the lump payout, which totals $281.2 million.

He won the ticket using the Quick Pick option, which lets the computer randomly choose numbers for you. He bought five tickets this way, and one of them ended up winning it all. Missler purchased the ticket at a 7-Eleven in Pasco County, Florida, using the winnings from a scratch-off lottery ticket.

He said that he had a feeling he would win, WFLA reported, and the first thing he did after winning was call his brother. The next person he told was his father while they had coffee the next morning.


2. When He Won, He Simply Posted on Facebook: “Oh.My.God.”

FacebookHis post when he won, and all the responses today.

This is by far his most popular social media comment. He posted this the night he won, on January 5 at 11:33 p.m., and the comment already has more than 400 reactions and 33 shares, as of the time of publication. Comments appear to be adding to this pretty much non-stop.

Since Missler won the Mega Millions, people are flooding his Facebook page with comments (and jokes about being related to him.) He hasn’t posted anything about his big win, but that’s not stopping anyone. On January 7, he shared a wrestling video that’s quickly accruing non-stop comments and “helpful” advice. One person advised him to never give the power of attorney to anyone, Another person wrote, “I hope he doesn’t fall for the wrong Women, and id like to advice him to spend every penny befre he dies as you cant take it with you bro.” Another person told him that he needed to make everything on his page private. Here are some of the comments left on his top Facebook post:

Another person left this helpful comment: “Please allow me to leave my ecommerce health and wellness Plexus products website in this comment. You don’t have to be overweight to benefit from these products and we have a special sale going on now… ” Someone responded, “I honestly don’t think he gives a s***.”

But in all honesty, viewing his Facebook is a trip down a road of serious positivity and encouragement. He shares happy videos and notes about pushing forward no matter what obstacle is being faced.

3. His Dad Is a Veteran, and Shane’s Proud of Him

In November, Missler shared a touching post on Facebook in honor of his dad, a veteran. He wrote to his dad: “Happy Veterans Day and thank you for your service  I am grateful to have a Father who has enstilled me with some values he accumulated while serving our amazing country! It may be hard to say that sometimes, with all that goes on in America on a day to day basis…but this country truly is AMAZING! Thank you to all that served and are currently serving. I don’t care if you were a janitor in the forces or bleeding on the front lines, grateful for each and every one of you who work towards the collective goal to project and serve this country!”


4. Missler Hopes to Use His Winnings to Help His Family & ‘Do Some Good for Humanity’

In a statement after winning the Mega Millions, Missler wrote: I’m only 20, but I hope to use it to pursue a variety of passions, help my family and do some good for humanity.” He continued: “I intend to take care of my family, have some fun along the way and cement a path for financial success so that I can leave a legacy far into the future.”

Missler was a Verifications Specialist at Universal Background Screening, Daily Mail reported, and he attended community college in Massachusetts after graduating from high school in 2015. He’s originally from Maine, but has been living in Port Richey, Florida. He’s a big New England Patriots and Boston Celtics fan.


5. His Facebook Posts Now Make Great Foreshadowing

Facebook

Facebook posts like the one above, from January 17, 2017, make perfect foreshadowing. This was posted nearly a year before he won the Mega Millions jackpot, and he reshared it on January 1 with the note: “2017 was a year filled with downsides but more importantly MASSIVE self improvement. I am excited to see how 2018 will play out and I look forward to improving myself even more. I am still just a kid trying to find his way who encourages everyone in his path to follow their dreams, because there are truly NO LIMITS to this thing we call life. Let’s get it.”

People are already commenting on this. “Seems the money you used for the scratch was just the surface. Congrats!” one person wrote.

Then in June 2016, he shared a meme that read: “Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.” Seems pretty appropriate. And of course, there’s this post:

ATTENTION MS. KP!:…
.
Hey, hey, hey, Ms. Fabergéain’t (a.k.a., Ms. Babyain’t!)!… girl of my dreams (well… girl in my dreams!), and Godly co-star in my pipedream!… before you go and behead your delimited/ delimiting with limits, I’ve just one thought!…
.
“I” don’t care about your “minted cha-ching” and “chubby little wallet”!… and so, I don’t “secretly love it”!… and yea, don’t “secretly f*cking love it”! And apparently, neither does Jessie J!… and another co-star, with you, in my pipedream…
.

.
Ms. Fabergéain’t!… Ms. Babyain’t!… Jesus declares in Matthew Chapter 5:…
.
5) Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. [Berean Study Bible]
.
Hebrews Chapter 1, vs 1-3, give a revealing description of Jesus Christ: He is “upholding all things by the word of his power.” That is, exceeding great power!… and power beyond our comprehension! Yet Christ completely controls that unlimited power!… always to use it as His Father desires!
.
As Christ said of His Father: “I do always those things that please him.” [John 8:29]
.
How does Christ do that? What character trait in His perfect character enables Christ to so totally submit to the Father’s will?
.
That trait is Christ’s meekness! It enables Him to control and always properly use His great power! Since we are to let His mind be in us (i.e., Christians!… see, Philippians 2:5), we must be striving to attain the same level of meekness! We must develop that character trait so we can qualify to rule forever with Christ!
.
Of the nine “beatitudes” Jesus listed in what is commonly referred to as His Sermon on the Mount, the third is meekness! And once again: “Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.” [Matthew 5:5] Here we learn that meekness is a quality or state of mind that results in bliss—in blessings!
.
But what did Jesus mean by the word “meek”? He certainly did not mean that we are to be weak, spineless, timid or cowardly!… which is the world’s concept of a meek person! How could we do God’s Work if we had no strength, no courage?
.
The Greek word, PRAUS, is translated as “meek”! Vine’s Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words defines PRAUS as, “gentle, mild, meek; for its significance see the corresponding noun.” The noun for PRAUS, is PRAUTES, and is described as follows:… “Denotes meekness. In its use in Scripture… the exercises of it are first, and chiefly, toward God. It is that temper of spirit in which we accept His dealings with us as good!… and therefore, without disputing, or resisting.”
.
That forcefully reminds us of Romans 8:28: “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
.
Ms. Fabergéain’t!… do you fully believe that scripture? If so, you already have the foundation on which to build meekness!… and strength!… and so, you need not rely on a “minted cha-ching” and “chubby little wallet” defense/ offense, in your response to the delimited/ delimiting limits of your detractors!
.
And because… Ms. Babyain’t!… as Romans 6:16 declares: Do you not know that when you offer yourselves as obedient slaves, you are slaves to the one you obey, whether you are slaves to sin leading to death, or to obedience leading to righteousness? [Berean Study Bible]
.
Continuing the quotation from Vine’s: “The meaning of prautes is not readily expressed in English, for the terms meekness, mildness, commonly used, suggest weakness and pusillanimity to a greater or less extent, whereas prautes does nothing of the kind. … It must be clearly understood, therefore, that the meekness manifested by the Lord and commended to the believer is the fruit of power. The common assumption is that when a man is meek it is because he cannot help himself; but the Lord was ‘meek’ because he had the infinite resources of God at His command.”
.
New Testament Words, by William Barclay, states: “Now herein lies the secret of the meaning of praus [meek]. There is gentleness in prautes [meekness] but behind the gentleness there is the strength of steel, for the supreme characteristic of the man who is praus [meek] is that he is the man who is under perfect control. It is not a spineless gentleness, a sentimental fondness, a passive quietism. It is a strength under control. … He is perfectly God-controlled, for only God can give him that perfect mastery. … Prautes [meekness] is strength under control, but it would be wrong to say that the man who is praus is perfectly self-controlled. He is perfectly God-controlled ….”
.
The Greek word PRAUS refers to one who is totally controlled by God, who has surrendered the self to do God’s will! A meek person accepts God’s dealings with him as good, and therefore does not dispute or resist.
.
In 2 Corinthians Chapter 12… Ms. Christian Babyain’t!… we find the account of Paul’s Vision and HIS “Thorn”!…
.
1) I must go on boasting. Although there is nothing to be gained, I will go on to visions and revelations from the Lord. 2) I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven. Whether it was in the body or out of the body I do not know—God knows. 3) And I know that this man—whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, but God knows— 4) was caught up to paradise and heard inexpressible things, things that no one is permitted to tell. 5) I will boast about a man like that, but I will not boast about myself, except about my weaknesses. 6) Even if I should choose to boast, I would not be a fool, because I would be speaking the truth. But I refrain, so no one will think more of me than is warranted by what I do or say, 7) or because of these surpassingly great revelations. Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. 8) Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. 9) But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10) That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. [NIV]
.
And so, Babyain’t!… No-o-o-o-oh, no way, “Karate-girl”/ “chop-chick”!… we’re not to resist “egg-shell attacks”! And certainly not by flashing a “minted cha-ching”, or “chubby little wallet”!
.
KP!… I need your strength for my pipedream of the greatest movie ever made!… and that means, I need your meekness, and your CONTINUED obedience to GOD’S WAY of doing things! Bye bye sweetheart!… and let GOD protect your “egg-shell”! In other words, “get cracking”!
.
Please!… no emails!… Jesus is Lord!

John Mayor Thinks he's The Superior Almighty GOD

You are pretty damn ridiculous. Do you really think anyone reads your crap?

Matthew Chapter 16 declares:…
.
26) What will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul? 27) For the Son of Man will come in His Father’s glory with His angels, and then He will repay each one according to what he has done. [Berean Study Bible]
