In Jesus' genealogy in Matthew 1:5, it mentions Rahab, but spells it (and Boaz) differently: " and Salmon begat Booz of Rachab ; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse;" ------------------ It was actually the raven that left the ark first, before the dove. Genesis 8: 6-7 - " And it came to pass at the end of forty days, that Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made: and he sent forth a raven , which went forth to and fro, until the waters were dried up from off the earth." ------------- Elhanan killed Lahmi - I Chronicles 20:5 " And there was war again with the Philistines; and Elhanan the son of Jair slew Lahmi the brother of Goliath the Gittite, whose spear staff was like a weaver’s beam." ________________________________________
I have heard sermons that were pretty graphic concerning the crucifixion, but I doubt they were like what you're describing. But what has made the most impact on me, personally, was when they describe Jesus, who knew no sin, having all the sin of the world poured on Him...and God turning His back.... I doubt we will ever truly comprehend the emotional and spiritual agony Jesus was in, in the moment He uttered the words "My God, My God..." The physical torment was nothing compared to God turning His back. The sermons on the crucifixion where the focal point is my sins caused Jesus agony and God turning His back on Jesus because of my sins , have made an impact on me more than the physical descriptions ever have or ever will.
The rules for this game are simple: Person A posts a question using the Bible. Person B responds, if they are correct they then ask a question. If they get it wrong, it continues until someone answers correctly. The question can be as easy or as difficult as you would like. Example: Person A: Who did Queen Esther invite to the banquet? Person B: The king and Haman! " And Esther answered, If it seem good unto the king, let the king and Haman come this day unto the banquet that I have prepared for him." Esther 5:4 Person A: Correct! Person B: What was Peter's other name? And....that's the question, should be simple Make sure you post the scripture verse with your answer.
King Solomon? The current Queen of England, Elizabeth II? Those are two that I can think of off the top of my head that might be what the verse is talking about. Highly respected heads of state who weren't rebelled against or attacked by an invading army. I'm sure there have been many others. I doubt very much it's talking about dictators who are hated by their people, because they are rising against him, if only in their imaginations or in secret gatherings. Comely: to be good, be pleasing, be joyful, be beneficial, be pleasant, be favourable, be happy, be right
There are many differences that show it is two different events, and not a reiteration of the same event. Chapter 19:11-16 - Jesus arrives on a white horse to the site of the battle 19:20- The Beast and False Prophet are cast into the Lake of Fire (These are separate individuals, they are not Satan and they are not in the bottomless pit) 19:21 - Jesus, from His horse, destroys the remaining army with His words. Chapter 20:2-3 - Satan is chained up into the bottomless pit. (He wasn't imprisoned or cast into the Lake of Fire in chapter 19, so how can this be a reiteration? It's not - t his is a continuation of events.) And here we wait for the next installment of lessons. However, to show the differences I'll jump ahead: 20:7 - Satan is loosed from the bottomless pit 20:9 - God (not Jesus) sends fire from Heaven (not while sitting on a horse at the site of the battle) to destroy the remaining armies. 20:10 - The Devil/Satan is cast into the Lake of Fire where he joins the Beast and False Prophet (who had not been released as Satan had) and this time there will be no release for him: "...and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever."
Thank you for these lessons on Revelation. I have always been fascinated by this book, but have had difficulty understanding events and the timelines and such. Your lessons have been very helpful for me in these areas.
I'm pretty sure he was asking for the link of the video you said you posted, not a link to youtube itself. There are so many versions of this song out there, that by just typing 'Hallelujah Chorus' into the youtube search box would bring up thousands of videos. We'd like to hear yours, so a link would be appreciated.
A few years ago I read a "re-telling" of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet updated with the modern day teenage vocabulary. The first few paragraphs were humorous with all the "likes", "yeahs", and "dudes" and other such un-needed words inserted where they didn't belong. However, I couldn't finish it, it was just too difficult annoying to read. I have a few pet peeves, but I've already aired them on a dog forum....
Thank you, Rosie. I am the one on the right, in the brown shirt. My name is Rebecca Young, the name I use for OB is Li Bai Jia, which is my name in Chinese. If any of you ladies are on facebook, you can look at my ministry page if you are interested. I don't post on there often (because I forget, haha!), but I do try to keep it updated. I just started the page in January. https://www.facebook.com/groups/336899026514101/
