That judge is a wicked person and doesn't deserve to be called an American.




#398656 Lambs......two More Weeks

Posted by heartstrings on 09 January 2015 - 12:41 PM

This is our winter/spring forage for the sheep. Clockwise: ryegrass mixed with arrowleaf clover and turnips in the foreground, wheat mixed with Austrian winter peas to the left (light green). oats in the far distance(dark green), and newly planted ryegrass to the right (light tannish) The sheep are eating the oats now, which are a fall and early to mid winter crop. The wheat and Austrian Winter Peas will be grazed about late winter and the ryegrass will be ready for early to mid Spring. The sheep have big bellies and are due to begin lambing in two weeks. Can't wait to see the new babies! :)

Looks like the Jihadist Islamofascists, the totalitarian liberals, environmentalists, and sodomites have about taken this place over: is there somewhere else I can move until the Lord comes back?

#398543 Thou Shalt Not Grow A Beard.......

Posted by heartstrings on 07 January 2015 - 01:40 PM

Lev 21:5

They shall not make baldness upon their head, neither shall they shave off the corner of their beard, nor make any cuttings in their flesh.

 

Psa 133:1-3
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;

As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.

 

1Ch 19:5
Then there went certain, and told David how the men were served. And he sent to meet them: for the men were greatly ashamed. And the king said, Tarry at Jericho until your beards be grown, and then return.

 

So, my 'sweet' mother inllaw, guest in my home, is sitting at my table and blurts out "I don't like Wayne's Beard" Well. I was already aware of that since the last two times she told me. 

 The only command I can find in the Word of God concerning "beards" is that God Himself forbid the priests to "shave off the corners" of theirs. Then there is Psalm 133 with it's Holy and beautiful words comparing "unity" of "brethren" to the precious ointment running down Aaron's beard,, and then in I Chronicles we find the account of some manly Jewish men being ashamed because their beards were cut off. So why does my IFB mother in law chide me for having a goatee? And why have I heard  IFB preachers stand up and say things like "BLESS GOD, I think you need to shave the hair off here, here. and here, glory to God, that won't const youi a thing" (pointing to his lower jaw). Tell me, someone: since God made facial hair on men, not women (well most anyway :) ) and since Jesus had a beard too (Isaiah 50:6) why the fuss? For those who don't want a beard, shave it off, but how can you judge some else's spirituality for having something that God designed in the first place? And remember, those clean-shaven busts and statues from around the first century, were of  the ungodly .https://www.google.c...ved=0CAYQ_AUoAQ I would tell all this (again) to my mother in law, but, you know.......      I'm glad the holidays are over.  :clapping:




#398486 Graveyard Humour

Posted by heartstrings on 06 January 2015 - 12:39 AM

A baby was born and his parents named him Odd. He went through school being teased mercilessly. Even when he went to college, people couldn't leave it alone; they had to comment on his weird name. He was so very sick of it, but knew there was nothing he could do.

The last straw came, when, well into a successful career, he was presented with an award by the chamber of commerce. The presenter apparently believed he was funny, and proceeded to embarrass Odd with a roast-like monologue. Odd seethed, but again could do nothing. But finally, finally he had had enough.

That night, he told his wife that he wanted to be buried with a blank gravestone. Nothing on it, no dates, no sentiments and most of all he did not want his name on the gravestone. He didn't want people making fun of him when he was gone.

Time passed and so did Odd. Now, when people walk through that cemetery and see the blank gravestone, they wonder at it for a bit, and then say, "Hmm. That's odd . . . "




#397894 "archaic" Word Useage

Posted by heartstrings on 25 December 2014 - 02:10 AM

Exodus 4:11 And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man's mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD?

 

The change of this word is so established in our society as meaning "stupid", that it is offensive to call someone "deaf and dumb". But in the King James Bible it simply meant "unable to speak".




#397893 "archaic" Word Useage

Posted by heartstrings on 25 December 2014 - 01:54 AM

Jhn 12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.

 

http://dictionary.re...browse/corn?s=t

6.(archaic or dialect) any hard particle or grain

 

What we in the U.S. call "corn", today, was only native to the Americas and would not have been known in the Middle East until the late 15th century. The word "corn",  in the King James Bible, referred to wheat, as in John 12:24, and possibly referred to other domesticated cereal grains.




#397875 "archaic" Word Useage

Posted by heartstrings on 24 December 2014 - 09:34 PM

For a long time, I have wanted to make a list of Bible words which are used very differently today. When reading the King James Bible, I believe it is imperative that we know these as it greatly increases our understanding, especially in passages which are frequently debated. Understand that these were the original meanings, in the English language, before they were subjected to "Linguistic drift". Perhaps some of you could participate and it will be helpful to all of us. I will do the first one.

 

 

 

1Th 4:15

For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

 

Prevent

1375-1425; late Middle English < Latin praeventus (past participle of praevenīre to anticipate), equivalent to prae- pre- + ven- (stem of venīre to come) + -tus past participle suffix

also: C15: from Latin praevenīre, from prae before + venīre to come

 

In 1 Thessalonians 4: 15 it meant basically to "precede" or "come before" unlike the common use today which means to "hinder" or "stop". Therefore, in 1 Thessalonians, the Bible is saying that those still alive will not precede the dead in Christ, which is clarified in the next two verses.....

 

1 Th 4:16

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

1Th 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord

 

Next?

Nothing new, those "profane babblings" were around in the first century too.

 

 

2Ti 2:16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.

2Ti 2:17 And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus;

2Ti 2:18 Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.




#397777 Sheep, Shepherd, Or Wolf?

Posted by heartstrings on 24 December 2014 - 12:59 AM

Luke 2:4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) 5To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with Fetus

 

Luke 1:41 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the fetus leaped in her womb;...

 

Umm, My Bible don't say that. That's what the WORLD says.

Hey Y'all; This subject shouldn't cause any division whatsoever among real Christians. If any man, who claims to be a King James defender, had the understanding he so desperately needs, he would consider every unborn child to be exactly what the Bible calls it; "Babe" and "Child"
