We can go on and on…but we have ‘ergonomic’ builders. Intent on ‘creating’ a Masterpiece, no matter the hours or days it takes. Did I say ‘Days’? Years!

LEGO has been around for more than 80 years, and in that time, there have been thousands of building sets released. From Scooby Doo to Star Wars, their sets have millions of tiny little pieces to assemble.
While building LEGO sets may seem easy enough, especially with the instructions they provide in each box, the labor it takes to build some of their sets can take hours – even days.
Here are what we consider to be the most challenging LEGO sets to build. When defining what is the most “challenging,” we took what the set is, how many pieces it has and its level of difficulty into consideration.

1. Star Wars Millennium Falcon (5,195 pieces)
This themed set is one of the biggest LEGO model ever made, containing over 5,000 pieces. It comes with a retractable boarding ramp, a removable cockpit top and rotating guns.
2. Star Wars Super Star Destroyer (3,152 pieces)
Keeping on the Star Wars theme, this destroyer includes mini figures of Darth Vader, Admiral Piett and more. This model, when built, weighs nearly 8 pounds and is over 4 feet long.

3. The Taj Mahal (5,922 pieces)
With over 5,000 pieces, this geographical model is currently the biggest set ever made. It’s recommended only for the most advanced LEGO builders.

4. Tower Bridge (4,295 pieces)
Another geographical model makes our list, as this set represents the Tower Bridge seen in London. It comes with 4 different vehicles popular in the city, such as a red double-decker bus.

5. Grand Carousal (3,263 pieces)
This carousal actually spins and plays music when it’s completed while the horses spin and move up and down. This interactive set includes 9 mini figures.

6. Star Wars Sandcrawler (3,296 pieces)
This Sandcrawler is another Star Wars LEGO set on the list, and it also won’t be the last. In addition to the pieces needed, it includes mini figures of major characters and droids from Episode IV: A New Hope.

7. Eiffel Tower (3,428 pieces)
Create the iconic French landmark that when completed, stands over 4 feet tall. With its pieces being almost all grey, this proves to be a challenging set to build.

8. Star Wars Death Star (3,803 pieces)
Since this set is an open circle, it is different from your typical LEGO models, making it more difficult to build. With all of the mini figures the set contains, you can build several scenes from the iconic movie all on one model.

9. Star Wars Death Star II (3,417 pieces)
This set can be built as a sequel to the original Death Star set. It’s over 2 feet high and comes with a display stand.

10. Sydney Opera House (2,989 pieces)
This Australian landmark might not have as many pieces as the rest of the sets on this list, but with the pieces mainly only being two colors, it can get complicated.

For The Creator “A day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years but a day.” 2 Peter 3:8
‘Time’ has no inkling on creation, Amen. To ‘Create’ is ALL that matters. We have a God Who never fails, Amen.
As I was meditating on The Word, something came to me, and it has for so long.

LEGO

We look at Lego, each ‘segment’ is known, adjusted for perfection. In God’s image, we were made, Amen.
To look at the same concept, things we have experienced in our ‘walk’/existence; even in our imagination – real or fiction, as ‘builders’ we tend to make.
IF we consider an artist, ALL thier ‘work’ is in their heads. Would it be a far reach for me to say, in their hearts? Perfection is key!

We see our lives, we are ‘kind of’ aware what came first. In Science, we have ages Species precisely.

Here, we are told ‘pre-historic.’
It is ALL His-story, to be more precise, it is ALL as it was meant to be.
Here it gets ‘complicated.’ Man was made to live forever! In the garden of Eden was the fruit of always. The tree of life:
“In the Book of Genesis, the tree of life is first described in chapter 2, verse 9 as being planted with the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (Hebrew: עֵץ הַדַּעַת‬) “in the midst of the Garden of Eden” by God. In Genesis 3:24 cherubim guard the way to the tree of life at the east end of the Garden.”

We have briefly discussed the ‘age’ of Angel’s. There is no ‘age’ beyond life. The best description is timelessness. For us to understand this better:
time is “the stuff life is made of.” Our earthly existence is marked by time. We “waste” it and “spend” it and “save” it; we have “time on our hands,” or we “make up for lost time”; we speak of those who have “all the time in the world,” while others are “running out of time”; and, then, “when our time is up,” we exit this world. What about in heaven? Will we still experience time as we do now? The short answer is we really don’t know.

First, let’s be clear that, when we say “heaven,” we are referring to the dwelling place of God. Revelation 21:3–4 says, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” The chapter goes on to describe the New Jerusalem, where believers will dwell for eternity.

We can read even further, existence is based solely on your decisions here, when we have choice.
https://www.biblestudytools.com/topical-verses/bible-verses-about-free-will/

That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.”
Ephesians 1:12
God has given us the power of choice, but once we have made the choice, it has power over us.
The Bible is filled with illustrations of decisions with which people were faced and the result of the choices they made. Joseph chose to forgive those who had cruelly mistreated him rather than harbor bitterness. Samson chose to follow lustful desires rather than God’s plan for his life. Abraham chose to trust God and demonstrate that trust by being willing to offer his son as a sacrifice. Judas chose to betray Christ for financial gain. Of the two thieves crucified on either side of Jesus, one chose to mock Him while the other chose to trust Him.
The choices of Joseph, Abraham, and the thief who trusted Christ brought unbelievably wonderful results. God honored Joseph’s faithfulness and forgiveness by raising him from the prison to the palace and reuniting him with his father and brothers. God honored Abraham’s faith by providing a substitute sacrifice and blessing his ensuing generations with strength and multiplication. God honored the thief’s choice by promising him a home in Heaven (just as He promises to anyone who will trust Him for salvation).
On the other hand, the choices of Samson, Judas, and the mocking thief brought consequences that they did not foresee when they made their decisions. Both Samson and Judas ended their lives by suicide. Samson lost the delivering power of God and ended his life a slave-his eyes gouged out and doing the job of an animal while being mocked by God’s enemies. The unbearable guilt Judas felt after betraying Christ brought him to the end of a noose where he hanged himself. The mocking thief will forever be regretting his decision to reject Christ as he spends eternity in Hell.
God has given each of us the power of choice, but once we have made our choice, we have no power to choose the consequences. Consider Eve’s choice in the Garden of Eden. Even after God gave Adam and Eve every good thing in the Garden of Eden, when Satan tempted Eve to take of the one tree God had forbidden, she yielded.
Satan suggested to Eve that she could be her own god, making her own decisions based on her own reasoning: “And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil” (Genesis 3:4-5). This temptation to be ones own god appeals to many Christians today. They want to be the one in control.
God does give us a free will-power to choose who we will obey-just as He gave to Adam and Eve. But notice that once Adam and Eve made their choice, they had no control of the consequences. “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned” (Romans 5:12).
When you are faced with temptation, remember the power of choice. You can choose to yield to temptation, but once you have made that choice, you cannot choose the consequences. On the other hand, as a Christian, you can choose to yield to the Holy Spirit (Romans 6:13). Once you have made that choice, you will find the consequences are the unabated blessings of God (Romans 6:22). Choose today, through the power of grace, to yield to the Holy Spirit.

We started this off with what I was led to share, Amen In terms of what we as artists build. Our desire to have things work to gather for good.
“And we know that all things work together for good to those who Love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28
This goes hand in hand with ”
“Delight thyself also in the LORD: and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
Commit thy way unto The LORD; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass.”
Psalm 37:4-5
Hold up, hold up! Each promise has conditions applied. We cannot read The Promises and look forward to their coming to be IF we are not meeting the pre-requisits:
So Moses told the people, ‘You must be careful to obey all the commands of the Lord your God, following his instructions in every detail. Stay on the path that the Lord your God has commanded you to follow. Then you will live long and prosperous lives in the land you are about to enter and occupy.’” -Deuteronomy 5:32, 33
What do we have to do to receive God’s blessing? Is God’s blessing ensured for ‘special’ people? What does God’s blessing look like, and how can we set ourselves up to receive His blessings?
In Exodus and Deuteronomy, God describes a series of “do’s” and “don’ts” that the Israelites are to follow. They relate back to the 10 Commandments, from Exodus 20:1-17, in which God gave the Israelites boundaries to abide by for their protection. Many governmental systems today are based on the 10 Commandments (see “X”, pg. 11 by J. John). They are, 1) not to have any gods before our one true God, 2) not to make any graven image to worship, 3) not to take God’s name in vain, 4) to remember the Sabbath, and to rest on that day, 5) to honor our parents, 6) not to murder, 7) not to commit adultery, 8) not to steal, 9) not to lie, 10) and not to covet (be jealous of) other people’s things.
God set up these boundaries for the Israelites for their protection. God knew that we humans need specific guidelines so that we would not get ourselves into trouble! He knew we needed Him to be #1 in our lives. (Matt 22:37) But, even though these commandments are what we should follow, God is most concerned about the state of our hearts. Our actions are often the fruit of what’s in our hearts. But, God wants to have our hearts and for us to know His love – not be separated from Him by religious ritual!
Going to church every single Sunday won’t ensure God’s blessing on our lives. But, it will provide accountability for the boundaries above. In tithing, we shouldn’t give with a motivation to get, but it is a good indicator of whether or not we put God first in our hearts. “Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.” (Malachi 3:10) God is most concerned with the state of our hearts.
Are you creating a fertile ground in your heart for God’s blessing in your life? Ask Him if there are any areas you may need to work on. God wants to bless His children with blessings so great “that there will not be room enough to store it”!
