  1. Through The Bible One Verse At A Time

    Exodus 9:22 And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch forth thine hand toward heaven, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, upon man, and upon beast, and upon every herb of the field, throughout the land of Egypt.

    Exodus 9:19 Send therefore now, and gather thy cattle, and all that thou hast in the field; for upon every man and beast which shall be found in the field, and shall not be brought home, the hail shall come down upon them, and they shall die.
  3. Worse, much of this stuff is downright cultish teaching and totally contrary to Scripture.

    Exodus 9:16 And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth.
  5. This, in part, speaks to our motivation: Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. 1 Corinthians 13:1-3

    Exodus 9:14 For I will at this time send all my plagues upon thine heart, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people; that thou mayest know that there is none like me in all the earth.

    Very glad to hear you are safe and well Alan. Things such as this serve, or should serve, as a stark reminder just how unpredictable life is and how quickly anyone can enter eternity for better or worse.

    Exodus 9:12 And the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he hearkened not unto them; as the Lord had spoken unto Moses.

    Exodus 9:10 And they took ashes of the furnace, and stood before Pharaoh; and Moses sprinkled it up toward heaven; and it became a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast.

    Exodus 9:8 And the Lord said unto Moses and unto Aaron, Take to you handfuls of ashes of the furnace, and let Moses sprinkle it toward the heaven in the sight of Pharaoh.

    Exodus 9:6 And the Lord did that thing on the morrow, and all the cattle of Egypt died: but of the cattle of the children of Israel died not one.

    Exodus 9:4 And the Lord shall sever between the cattle of Israel and the cattle of Egypt: and there shall nothing die of all that is the children's of Israel.
  13. I agree with the stated assessments of #1 and #2. As to #3, that would also fall into the same category as #2. Any work we do for self rather than for God is the wrong motivation. If the "sole motivation" is to earn a reward that is indeed a selfish motivation and would be burned up.

  15. Most sinful/Least sinful American cities

    Regarding the debates and election season it's clear many are trying to gain the "evangelical" (they lump us into this category) vote by speaking certain things to itching ears. Those running for election also know most of the "evangelical" voters have little depth in their faith and their political leanings are more shaped by the culture and media than the Bible. This is why so many candidates are talking about more war, promoting "gender equality" in the military, and saying things many modern neo-con Republicans want to hear. The more I have checked into each candidates claims of Christianity the more I've found what they say and what they actually believe and practice are not the same. Trump claims to love the Bible but couldn't even name a favorite book of the Bible or speak to anything specific regarding the Bible. Cruz claims to be a fully committed Christian yet over a period of years it was found he only gave 1% of his income to any charity and none to a church. He claims he was building up his family and couldn't give more. Caron is touted as a strong Christian but he's actually a Seventh Day Adventist. Hillary claims to be an old time Methodist but she's clearly a secular, big government, social justice Methodist. On and on we could go for each candidate. Our only hope is in Christ. Not the schemes of men and especially not in the schemes of men who profess to be true, conservative Christians when they rely more upon the ways of the world than upon the Lord. Our elections are proving the biblical words of reaping what we sow.
