Ban Rosie for not seeing some of the treasures of darkness so that you may know God. Isaiah 45:3 (KJV) 3 And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.
After over 37 years saved, I have read the bible through well over 30 times and felt I was not getting as much out of it anymore. I wanted to do something that would get me to look much closer not only at the "word of God" but the WORDS of God. Now I hand write out the entire bible word for word, I am starting my second time through. This usually spawns multiple "word studies" as I come across curious words often "glossed over" in casual reading. I will then let the bible define its own terms when I do a word study by seeing how many times the word is used throughout the bible and the context in each incident. I am a big fan of studying the bible "horizontally" rather than "deeper". Bro. Garry
Welcome back! I am not nearly as active here as I once was because I am full time employed and taking 15 credit hours of college classes as well. On top of my ministry responsibilities I barely know my name. Bro. Garry
I can't believe you Palindrome lovers were silent during your week last week! All last weeks dates were Palindromes! 51015, 51115, 51215, 51315, 51415, 51515, 51615, 51715, 51815, and 51915. You guys have had your 9 days and were silent?!
They sure seem to discourage using cards here. A lot of places tack on a $.35 charge to every transaction using a card as payment. Cash is still free to use. I stop doing business with places that tack on the extra charge for using a card like Arco AM/PM and most fast food restaurants in town.
For some reason I can no longer post from my home PC or personal Laptop on this site anymore. I have no problems posting from my work PC as I am doing right now. My laptop using the my work ISP still can't post, so I know it is not local modem/router issue. I can fill in a title for a post and tags, but he text entry box for the messages is grayed out. Bro.

An Ebenezer is an item kept or placed as a memorial of a significant event. A pile of stones at the site such as the 12 stones from the middle of the Jordan river as a memorial of God providing a miraculous crossing on dry ground in the midst of the river would be an example of an Ebenezer.
I have been unable to view any of the debate at all. The page is blank. The only entry I see is Bro. Matt stating the debate has officially begun and asking for Pastor Markle to make his opening statements. Never mind..I finally took a few more sips of coffee and figured it out.
