#387498 Whats for Supper...

Posted by Invicta on 14 September 2014 - 05:48 PM

Lunch didn't go too well today.  I put the oven on the timer to finish when we got home from church, or so I thought, but when we arrived home the food had been cooked and the oven cooled down. I must have set the timer incorrectly.


It was edible, though.


When we arrived home I did a baked Bramley apple and Kay and I shared it,  It was delicious.


Baked apple. For each person.


Wash and core a large cooking apple such as Bramley (the best) or Newton Wonder.  Place in an ovenproof dish such as a gratin dish.  Fill the cavity with brown sugar.  I prefer dark brown but today used Demerara as that is all I had. Pour a tablespoonful of water over the sugar.  It will go down so add more sugar.  Add some raisins to the dish and a few chopped semi dried apricots,By this time the sugar in the cavity will have gone down a bit so top it up again  Drizzle some runny honey aver the apple, I used acacia.  Bake in the oven till it is done to your taste. About 180-200C or 375-400F   When serving pour the syrup and fruit over the apple.

With wave of the magic wand of "figurative speech" you dismiss what the Bible describes in great detail, and therefore can ignore any problems you might have.
Then you say the binding took place after the death of Christ, and again ignore the facts of Satan working against Paul and others by saying the Jews are Satan.

So you solve your other problems by assigning a totally different meaning to a term that causes you problems.

You can explain anything you like. It is easy if you just ignore the words used, or change the meanings to suit yourself, or use the magic word "figurative" to make it mean something else entirely.

why can you not just read the passage and understand what it says?


Mark 3:27  No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.
Did Jesus enter the strong man's house and spoil his goods?

Today I did sea bass fillet, baked with olive oil and lemon juice and topped with kumquat slices, served with crinkle cut fries and salad.

The only time I have had fried cabbage is in a Chinese, and they call it Crispy Seaweed.  I can't think why.


Today I did vegetable soup made from leftovers from our seniors lunch with extra vegetables from our freezer, with Crème fraîche, served with wholewheat bread.

Who doesn't know the Ducks?

I don't, but I used to keep ducks.  I saw in the TV listings that Dr Who was going to meet Robin Hood in Sherwood Forest this evening.  (Didn't watch it.)


Tonight I did ham and cheese omelette with salad.

A couple of questions for the jalepeño experts.


1.  I had one a couple of days ago which was very hot.  I had one today that was not hot at all.  They were from the same plant and picked at the same time.  Any idea why?

2.  Do you save the seeds for next year?

3.  Do you keep the plants from one year to the next?

#386033 Eternal Security Taught In Hebrews 6

A couple of observations on early posts:
They were already in the last days.
Heb 1:2  Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
Acts 2:38. 
38  Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Is followed by Acts 2:39.
39  For the promise is unto you, (those who he was addressing) and to your children, and to all that are afar off, (that is you and I) even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

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!

As the Scots would say "There's a moose loose aboot the hoose"

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.
