My parent's, as children lived in a really poor part of London. In the 1911 census, my mother aged 2, het 3 year old sister lived with their parents and grandmother in one room. My mum was saved at a nearby Baptist Church. My fatger lived about half a mile away in Bermondsey, in an apartment block built by the Guinness trust, as living accommodation for the poor. My dad was saved at a nearby mission which somebody had started as an outreach to the poor.

A Quid is slang for a pound. A pound is worth about 1.5 dollars or so. A penny, plural pence, is 100 th of a pound or about 1.5 cents, or so, although it depends on the exchange rate of the day, or even on the same day. For instance, I am in France at present, and paying in Euros. When I looked at my credit card statement for last at

Thursday, my our the exchange rate for our lunch was 1.24888888 Euros to the pound, but the next day it was 1.247

A mouse got in my Dad's house and ate a hole into his bag of potato chips. That mouse didn't last long!

I've never noticed that. The new bulbs screw into the fixtures, and they work in most of the old fixtures here, but there are two fixtures they will screw into but they won't light.

I think I'll just buy a few flood lights, that should brighten the house up!

I had some spotlights in my conservatory and the fitting for two of them burnt out very quickly. The electrician wanted £50 plus the cost of the fitting, so I bought a LED striplight from Amazon and fitted it my self. this was much cheaper and uses less electricity and gives more light. It uses about six and a half Watts.

#382390 Israel In Darkness

Posted by Invicta on 17 August 2014 - 06:45 PM

Before Armageddon the sun and moon will standstill over Israel. They will form a solar eclipse and go from site.


Habakkuk 3:11-13

11 The sun and moon stood still in their habitation: at the light of thine arrows they went, and at the shining of thy glittering spear.

12Thou didst march through the land in indignation, thou didst thresh the heathen in anger.

13Thou wentest forth for the salvation of thy people, even for salvation with thine anointed; thou woundedst the head out of the house of the wicked, by discovering the foundation unto the neck. Selah.


Did you notice that the whole of chapter 3 till verse 16 is in the past tense?

Going to have to fire up both barbecues' this time.  Chicken in one; corn on the cob, and vegie kabobs with squash, mushrooms, onions, and peppers in the other.  Sun tea is brewing.  Making homemade mud pie ice cream.  Put new sand in the horseshoe pits, filled the wading pool for the kiddies, and invited a friends family over for a relaxing summer afternoon of horse shoes, food, and water fights.  Gotta love August.


We have not had weather reliable to eat outside for a week or so.  Although it has been fairly hot, we have had sudden downpours of rain and thunderstorms.


Tonight I did Thai style stirfry with egg fried rice.  I wanted to do sticky jasmine rice but my wife doesn't like that.

#381718 Prayer

Posted by Invicta on 10 August 2014 - 06:50 PM

My wife and I regularly pray for all the persecuted saints around the world, although we only know of a few of them. We know there are many more, thousands or perhaps  millions, but we can only pray in general for persecuted believers, adding the names or the description, such as "That pastor we heard of in prison in Iran" if we don't know his name.

Hello Ian


Great news about that young Person,


Would that camp be at the CCIW camps?


Some of our members go to a later one at CCIW and this year they are going on the 17th August.  One coupl;e are in charge of all the catering for the camp and last year they catered for about 120 including helpers.  Our back hall is filled with cans of food, etc and the feeezer is full with meat.  The camp is somewhat remote and they have to take all the food with them.  They spent all last week cooking and they were continuing today.  Some of our younger members are also going as tent leaders.


My two eldest grandchildren were helping on a beach mission at Lyme Regis for the last two weeks.  The local council tried to stop them but after discussions have given them permission to continue for three years then they will review the situation.


Their mum, my daughter; has gone to Folkestone today to help with a camp at Grace Baptist Church, Folkestone.

I don't think they look alike at all.  The mouth is similar, but the eyes ears and nose are all different shapes.

When I was younger, gospel services often ended with "Jesus could come tonight, are you ready?"

Took my wife out to lunch today to celebrate her birthday, which was yesterday.  So this evening just had a fairly plain salad, lettuce, tomato, cucumber and red onion, all from the garden.

#380052 Blood Moon Tonight

Posted by Invicta on 27 July 2014 - 11:08 AM

Another Blood moon (also known as a very large moon in the early evening just after sundown) is coming up on August 9th  and again on Sept 8th


When I was at school,  over 60 years ago, we learnt that large red moons occurred when the moon was low on the horizon and caused by the  deflection and the dust of the atmosphere.

It is often said that Palestinians lost their lands and homes in 1948.  Yes nearly 1,000,000 did, most werer ordered to leave by the Arab Hihg Command to enable their forces free range to kill the Jews, promising that they would be able to return in 6 months,  They kept them in the refugee camps near the border and did not allow them citizenship.  At the same time over 1,000,000 Jews were evicted from Arab lands, many from before 1948.  None of these were able to return and were all given citizenship in Israel or left to settle in other countries.  


Many others nationalities were dispossessed of lands and homes throughout the centuries.  I remember a Jewish Christian saying to me that very few Jews throughout the centuries have been born in the same county where their grandfather was born. Many different nationalities were dispossessed during and after WW2 including the Germans from East Prussia,and the Poles in Eastern Poland and of course millions of Jews who lost lands, property and their lives.  Many Arabs supported the Nazis because they persecuted Jews.  That was before 1948. During the war, I cannot remember the date, but you can probably look it up, there was a pro Nazi coup in Iraq.


Do you ever ask yourself why Israel and now Egypt blockade Gaza?.  I can remember in the 60s and 70s, Israel had many workers from Gaza and the West Bank, they used to go daily to Israel by bus and return in the evening, but the Palestinians not only sent workers in the buses, but also bombers and gunmen to attack the Jews.


You know and I know that there will never be a two state solution.  The Arabs will not accept that, they could have had that under Arafat, but they only want to kill every Jew and "drive them into the sea." The Hamas leaders are quite happy to have their women and children killed by Israel,  because it makes they appear the injured party.

The Calvinists associate spiritual death with physical death. However, you have to hear the word of God in order to repent and believe. According to their logic, if spiritual death is physical death, how can anyone who is dead hear the word? Also, many unbelievers understand the Gospel but reject. How can they do so according to their theology that one who is dead cannot understand the Gospel?? They would have to take the view that someone hears the word and understands it after they are saved, spiritually alive.


Joh 5:25  Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.
