    I've been watching this ewe with anticipation for the past few weeks. Her first lambing was twins and the second and third time was twins too. Last year she had triplets but last night she had four. As I watched from a distance two were born then I noticed the third never lifted his head.. I didn't want to disturb her as she cleaned him up but after some time, when I saw he wasn't moving I rushed over there, checked for obstructions, and noticed his heart was beating as his little chest was visibly thumping but still no breathing. I quickly picked him up by his hind legs and swung him upside down, then gently "dropped" him on his side. I saw him take a few breaths but then he stopped again. It was disheartening. As i walked away carrying him, she dropped the fourth lamb and in a few minutes, it was up walking. This morning I caught and checked them; all three are girls. That made me feel much better. She had three girls last year too. I will be keeping all six girls hoping that maybe some of Dottie's extra fertile genes were passed on to at least one or two of them. As of this morning the flock numbered 155, but they are lambing about every day now. Last Saturday, 8 lambs were born in one day; three sets of twins and two singles. There are only about 3 and 3/4 more rolls of hay left of the 15 to 20 tons we had. At the rate they're going, they will only last another two weeks at most.  It will be time to go buy more because there won't be any spring grass for several more weeks..

    Are you trying to say that the "extra digits" deformity was caused by angel DNA? I suppose this one-eyed kitten's great, great, great.........................granddaddy was a Cyclops.  https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/564x/8a/5b/88/8a5b88814d17f41551e685e547e7c0f0.jpg Seriously, deformities are caused by the curse; the curse because of sin. It's not because of angel "hybridization"

    Just a deformity.   It's called "polydactaly" https://www.google.com/search?q=polydactyly&biw=1536&bih=764&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwigtPPZ5fDKAhXCwiYKHa45A3gQ_AUIBigB

    Brother Scott, I agree with you that the giants were not the offspring of the sons of God and that there were no angel/human hybrids. But I would point out that a semicolon, between the two independent clauses does relate the second to the first; likewise, so does the conjunction "and". If it were not related, there would be a period instead of the semicolon. But if there were a period, then the first sentence would be out of place. The phrase "after that" cannot mean "at a later time" because the whole story takes place "in those days" and "those days" are "when men began to multiply.....", namely the whole of Genesis chapters 4. 5 and 6 until verse 7. Scroll down to the second synonym in the left hand column and click on it.  http://www.thesaurus.com/browse/after+that . The phrase "after that" contains a preposition and a pronoun: the preposition "after" also can mean "because of" , "according to", "consequent to", "subsequent to", "in imitation of"http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/after .  The pronoun "that" refers directly to the sentence "there were giants in the earth in those days". “There were giants in the earth in those days; and also (according to that) or ((in imitation of that) or (subsequent to that), when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.”

    No problem. It was just interesting: I had never noticed the mention of "renting" in the Bible before. I'm sure it was mentioned for some good reason though.
  6. The Kingdom

        Agreed. Interesting. Word Origin and History for hire v. Old English hyrian "pay for service, employ for wages, engage," from Proto-Germanic *hurjan (cf. Danish hyre, Old Frisian hera, Dutch huren, German heuern "to hire, rent"). Reflexively, "to agree to work for wages" from mid-13c. Related: Hired ; hiring.

    Is a "hired house" a rented one? Just curious.
  8. Gehazi was healed and restored?

    Hey, I have to admit again: I liked the story very much, So much that I HOPED it was true. But I had to verify and much to my dismay I'm just not seeing it. Then during Bible study when we came across the Luke 4:27 verse it pretty much confirmed it for me. But what's even more of a letdown, is when someone just turns a blind eye to what's staring them right in the face, seemingly just to follow a personality....and I LIKE Tony Evans too, I really do.
  9. Gehazi was healed and restored?

    I passed that verse on to Tony Evans' correspondent and got this response....       It was Elijah who told Namaan to dip 7 times in the Jordan? Huh? Is he trying to mess with my head? Is that what people with a ThM behind their name are trained to do? I need a nap, y'all.

    Actually, the Lord Jesus, Israel, the Church/believers, and angels are "elect".

    We had a pastor once, who when teaching this stuff, would say that this only counted for the angels "In heaven". But as he would say, the ones which came to earth "cohabited with women" even though the Bible says "took them wives".  I guess maybe it makes the story more fascinating for some people.

    Are you sure extraterrestrials didn't reproduce with humans?

    The sons of God did not produce the giants; they were contemporaries with them. The only recorded height of a giant, in the Word of God is "six cubits and a span". A cubit is distance from your elbow to the tip of your finger, which is an average of about 18" and a "span" is the width of your open-stretched hand, which is about 8" I think.. This would make Goliath around 9' 8" tall. The only other person in recorded history which compared to that was Robert Wadlow, who stood 8' 11" and was still growing when .he died at age 22. So the height of 9" 8" is not far-fetched, but 15 definitely is.
