  1. heartstrings added a post in a topic: Revelation chapter 19-22 Study.   

    Zechariah 14 
    Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.
    2  For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
    3  Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations , as when he fought in the day of battle.
    4  And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives , which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.....................
    9  And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord , and his name one.
    He ain't coming to New York, Bejing, or London and He sure ain't coming to Mecca or the Vatican... He's going to set His foot right smack in the middle of Israel. That's where it's at, bro.....Zion

    Has anyone ever noticed any similarities between Mark Chapter 6 and Psalm 23?
    33  And the people saw them departing, and many knew him, and ran afoot thither out of all cities, and outwent them, and came together unto him.
    34   And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.
    35  And when the day was now far spent, his disciples came unto him, and said, This is a desert place, and now the time is far passed:
    36  Send them away, that they may go into the country round about, and into the villages, and buy themselves bread: for they have nothing to eat.
    37  He answered and said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they say unto him, Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworth of bread, and give them to eat?
    38  He saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? go and see. And when they knew, they say, Five, and two fishes.
    39  And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the green grass.
    40  And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties.
    41  And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided he among them all.
    42  And they did all eat, and were filled.
    43  And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the fishes.
    44  And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.

    Nitwit + government grant = amazing discoveries and beneficial knowledge?
    Not all the ladies like beards, and our ''species'' propagates just fine with or without, Not only that, but some of the most aggressive and "powerful" men have been clean shaven. I'm sure that Adam had a beard though; God put it on us for some reason.
  5. heartstrings added a post in a topic: Holding wages overnight   

     I know a little about it.
    I run a small business which serves mostly other businesses. I couldn't tell you how many times I have worked like mad, for a much larger company, only to have them hold my money for a month or surprise me with a "net 45 days" policy....So they got to use my property for 45 days for free, usually thousands of dollars worth, after I was diligent enough to produce it and get it to them on time. If it hadn't been for credit cards, I really would have been in a fix.

    If anything liquefied, it's either of the Devil, or no miracle at all; most likely the latter.
  7. heartstrings added a post in a topic: Was This Really a Miracle? Pope Francis Turns Vial of Blood Into Liquid   

    I he's that 'miraculous' why isn't he healing the sick, curing cancers, paralytics, restoring sight to the blind...raising the dead. And why is there so much organized crime in his jurisdiction?
  8. heartstrings added an answer to a question: When a FBC decides to give to a new mission, should the members of the church have the opportunity to vote or should that just be up to the Pastors and clergy?   

    1 Corinthians16 
    Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye.
    2  Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.
    3  And when I come, whomsoever ye shall approve by your letters , them will I send to bring your liberality unto Jerusalem.
    "Ye" and "You" are plural pronouns in the KJB . The congregation was free to approve who received this particular money.
    It also seems to have been their prerogative in 1 Corinthians 9.

    Good question.
    I think it's because I began posting about my sheep, along with  a few scriptures pertaining to them. I suppose it became a habit of sorts so I posted another one about an animal.  Since it seems to be ''common knowledge'' that one of the most notable traits of sheep is their stupidity, I thought it would be pertinent to discuss the intelligence of another "biblical" or nearly biblical animal.  But here are a few scriptures...
    Llamas can cross with camels, so they are of the same ''kind''; "species" notwithstanding.  A camel would be an unclean animal, according to OT dietary law, and so would llama had it been available in the OT.
    Lev 11:4
    Nevertheless these shall ye not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the hoof: as the camel , because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you. My llama, similar to a camel, is a very aloof and unfriendly critter; she would never be a pet. Camels are mentioned 18 times in the story of Eleazar's journey to bring Rebecca to Isaac and I have been told, though I haven't studied it out, that Abraham was a picture of God the Father, Eleazar was a picture of the Holy Spirit, Rebecca was a picture of the Church or Bride of Christ, Isaac as a picture of Christ and the camels were a picture of the grace of God. What say ye?

     Being my Dad was a rancher, I've been around and worked with cattle most of my life.. We did have one cow which would nurse herself, So my Dad put a device on her nose which consisted of a ring in the nostrils with a flat piece of metal draped over the nose holding sharp spikes. It was designed for weaning calves. Anyway the cow would jerk her head up sharply, flipping the device upside down, throw one hind leg up and continue to nurse herself. Most cows are indeed pretty dumb but, I guess cows can have "geniuses" just like people do. https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10153116854314757&set=vb.35086most of my life6824756&type=2&theater

  12. heartstrings added a post in a topic: ...no rising up.   

    What do you think it is referring to?
  13. heartstrings added a post in a topic: ...no rising up.   

    Proverbs 30
    29 There be three things which go well, yea, four are comely in going:
    30 A lion which is strongest among beasts, and turneth not away for any;
    31 A greyhound; an he goat also; and a king, against whom there is no rising up.
    Wouldn't you say that this verse is speaking only of the King of Kings when He reigns in the millennium? And that the "rising up" means that no one will even want to TRY? I don't see how the "comeliness" could refer to earthly kings, because I'm pretty sure there are some North Koreans who would love to get the chance. What do you think?

    ... rock  llama

    You want to get to the other side of the fence, but there is no gate open, so you pace back and forth looking for an opening that wasn't there the last few moments you checked; maybe it's just short memory? I don't see the sheep doing this.

    They call it Easter Sunday at ours.
