The Dove. Genesis 8:12 ( KJV ) 12 And he stayed yet other seven days; and sent forth the dove; which returned not again unto him any more. Who slew Lahmi, the brother of Goliath the Gittite? Oops..I guess I am supposed to wait to ask a questions until I am told I was right.
I can't find any reference to children by Rahab. Am I missing something? Help me out. That is why I made the assumption that Bathsheba was possibly a Hittite because of Uriah her husband and I know Bathsheba bore Solomon in the line of Christ.
This question "why did people live longer before the flood" can only be answered by conjecture and not by any direct scriptural reference. Can we have a question that can be answered directly by scriptural reference?
Ban Rosie for not following this scriptural command and thinking always.. Philippians 4:8 ( KJV ) 8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things .
In my church the Pastor will thoroughly vet which missionaries are invited to share their field with the congregation. Then if their ministry looks like something we could support the pastor will make a recommendation of support and a vote is brought to the church. We have not been able to approve every missionary that presents their field, or sometimes we support them as much as 2 years down the road as funds are made available. Note: Sadly we have also had to call for a church vote to pull support from a mission work because of doctrinal errors, disqualification of the missionary due to sin, or a change in focus. We require our missionaries primary focus be that of church planting with the purpose and ultimate goal of training up local nationals to take over that church and then the missionary moves on to establish another church. We once decided to pull support from a missionary who had stayed on as pastor of the work they started for over 15 years and had a congregation of 2,500 and was collecting a salary from that church that exceeded our entire monthly church offerings combined. We currently have a wonderful group of 20 missions fields our church supports faithfully at $50 per month plus special offering donations as needs are made known, for instance we recently paid for the air fare for a missionary family in China to travel back the U.S. after the death of the father of the missionaries wife. They had not been back home in many years. It was awesome to be able to see and entertain the Maricle family missionaries to China for a few weeks. Bro. Garry
Time to clean out my refrigerator...So who knows what mix and match meal I will have. I have found though that anything can be made edible if you put it in a tortilla and douse it with enough cheese and salsa. I think unlike last time, I am going to smell everything carefully and skip the fuzzy ones.
