Well  I think the good news for today is that Abu Hamza has received a life sentence in the USA.  We should have done it 10 years ago.

So the Paris sieges are over.

 

After murdering 10 journalists and two police guards, the terrorists were heard to say "We have killed Charlie Hebdo."  But have they?

 

The paper which was struggling financially on 60,000 copies per week, plans a 1,000,000 print run next week with all proceeds going to the families of those killed.  The govt will try and free 1 million Euros to support the magazine and a number of papers have either reprinted the offending cartoons or plan to do so. The slogan "je suis Charlie" "I am Charlie" has been taken upthroughout France and indeed the word.

 

A number of cartoons which appeared on social media after the outrage were shown on TV.  One  I liked was

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?

Thanks for your prayers, folks.  Although not at all good, I am feeling a lot better today.  Kay said she won't be able to eat anything again today.  

 

Why did they remove the microphone, Ian?

 

Good News.  Our (foster)son Graham and his wife Leanne have just had a daughter, Amber, 7lb 11ox.  Mother and daughter doing well.

A main consideration is what operating system they run.  Most apps are only available tor Apple and Android.  That includes bank accounts, hotel booking. bible study and nearly everything else.  In fact I have only seen one app that was not the those two and that was for a Blackberry

 

That is the situation over here anyway.




#397969 Whats for Supper...

Posted by Invicta on 25 December 2014 - 07:38 PM

Today we went to my youngest daughter.  For lunch we had Baked Salmon, roast potatoes,roast parsnips, sprouts, carrots and homemade sage and onion and chestnut stuffing.   I took a lentil savoury for the four vegetarians, but we all had a bit.

 

Before we left we had a buffet of cheese, paté, French sausage, dips and salad, and I took a French Buche de Noel, a chocolate log for desert.




#397963 "archaic" Word Useage

Posted by Invicta on 25 December 2014 - 07:20 PM

Ass in US.  But not in England where the original meaning is used.  It is not a rude word in English except if you use it to describe someone when you are called them a donkey.




#397958 "archaic" Word Useage

Posted by Invicta on 25 December 2014 - 07:07 PM

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.

 

Here in the UK corn is usually wheat.  The is also a word, " barleycorn", but it can I believe mean any similar grain.We call maize "Sweetcorn"  But when I was young I think it was just called Maize.  

 

I France there are two main types of flour (Farine)  1.Farine de blé  2. Farine de froment.  My dictionary gives these translations: 1. Blé.  Corn, U.S. Wheat.  2:  Froment.  Wheat.   They also give Blé de Espagne as Maize (Spanish corn.)

 

Just togive different usages of the word "Corn"

#397725 Where Is The New 'temple' Going To Be Built? Inside The Walls Or Out?

Posted by Invicta on 23 December 2014 - 06:30 PM

Sir, 

 

All that is saying is that the walls had changed and the city had grown. The temple mount was then...where it is now. It's hard to dismiss those HUGE foundation stones that Herod put in place under the Temple Mount.

 

No, just the fulfilment of Jesus Christ's prophecy that not one stone of the temple (that they could see) would be left standing on another; they would be thrown down.

 

Yes, That was fulfilled.  "Zion was ploughed like a field."

 

I'm thinking that Encyclopedia Brittanica's definition of desolate might differ from God's.

 

We have to ask ourselves, "Who is the HE that shall confirm the covenant?" Is it Christ, or is it someone else? If we look at the previous verse, we will see who the "he" is...

 

Dan 9:26-27
26  And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
27  And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

 

Messiah has been cut off, and another person is mentioned..."the prince" of the people who will destroy the city and the sanctuary. He (the prince of the people that shall destroy the city and the sanctuary) is the one who will confirm the covenant.

 

The view has been brought forward that "he" is the Lord Jesus Christ. The view has also been brought forth that the "he" was General Titus. However, verse 27 flows out of verse 26, and the last person mentioned in verse 26 is "the prince"; therefore, the "he" of verse 27 is continuing with that person...the prince of the people who shall destroy the city and the sanctuary.

 

That leaves us two options...since Jesus Christ wasn't the prince of the Romans.

 

1. "The prince" was General Titus. If so, what covenant did he confirm, and when did he perform the abomination of desolation in the temple?

2. "The prince" is unknown; however, other portions of scripture teach us who this "prince" is...the Antichrist...and this is a still future event that will happen in the rebuilt temple which will be located on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

The prince was not the subject of the sentence,  his people were,  The Last person who was the subject was Messiah.

 

But in the bible you will find examples of the "he"   referring back some way.  When we look at the whole prophecy it is of the Messiah, so apart from any other explanation, the "he" must refer to Him.

 

It is a very serious thing to apply prophecies regarding the Lord, to the Antichrist.  Very serious.

#397521 The Cross And How Jews Perceive It: Sharing Messiah With The Jewish People

Posted by Invicta on 21 December 2014 - 05:59 PM

In the London newspaper where I used to work we had a Christian Union group.  At one of our meetings, anew young lady came.  She said she was a Christian and a Jew.  One member shouted "Praise the Lord!"  She replied "I am no different from any other Christian, I heard the Gospel and responded.  

 

Today our preacher was Mike Moore from Christian Witness to Israel.  One thing he said was that there is a meeting in Israel every October with Jewish Christians who want Israel as a state and Arab Christians who want a Palestinian  state, but they all meet in Jesus' name.




#397298 Paul Craig Roberts Interview

Posted by Invicta on 18 December 2014 - 03:59 PM

Yeah. The Cubans are real thrilled about that "talking."

 

So should the Americans be.  If they had talked year ago they may not have communism there today. After all you not only talk to China, we make all our goods there, despite the fact that the ruin the peasants, pollute the atmosphere, and ruin our economies.  In five minutes time there is a Panorama programme about Apple factories in chine it purports to show workers falling asleep a their desks because of the long hours they work.  I intend to watch it.

 

Sanctions only make those countries more bitter and anti those who impose them.  The only time I can remember sanctions working was in Southern Rhodesia, and what happened?  We got Mugabe.
