Let’s Take It Personally

StopAndPrayTV

Lord, thou wilt ordain peace for us: for thou also hast wrought all our works in us. (Isaiah 26:12)

What a difference it makes when we humans cease being general and become pointed and personal in our approach to God! We then come to see that all that God did was for each of us.

It was for me that holy men spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. For me Christ died—and when He arose on the third day it was for me. When the promised Holy Spirit came it was to continue in me the work He had been doing for me, since the morning of the Creation!

So, I have every right to claim all of the riches of the Godhead in mercy given. What a blessed thought—that an infinite God can give all of Himself to each of His children!

He does not distribute…

His Really Amazing Grace

StopAndPrayTV

“Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians which is in God the Father and in the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 1:1) 

These are the very first of Paul’s divinely inspired words, and in this first of his inspired greetings, he set a pattern which he would later follow in all his other epistles. He would always begin with an implicit prayer that both grace and peace, sent from God the Father and His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, would be received and experienced by the ones to whom he was writing. Furthermore, “grace” always precedes “peace” in these salutations, because one must receive the grace of God before he can experience the peace of God.

By this strong emphasis on grace—preceding anything else he might write to the church or…

The Everlasting Light

Has not the Scripture said that the Christ comes from the seed of David and from the town of Bethlehem, where David was? John 7:42

Bethlehem is mentioned more than 35 times in the Old Testament. It was the birthplace of David and became known as the City of David. It’s also the birthplace of the Son of David, Jesus. Through Bethlehem flows the lineage and descent of the Savior, as the prophet Micah predicted: “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth to Me the One to be Ruler in Israel, whose goings forth are from of old, from everlasting” (Micah 5:2).

When Jesus was born, there were three major continents known to scholars—Europe, Asia, and Africa. Asia was chosen, but Asia has many countries. Micah selected one country, Israel, with three districts—Judea, Galilee…

Denmark to Isolate Returning Jihadists, Criminal Migrants on Deserted Island

While the right-wing Danish People’s Party vigorously celebrated the decision, it was also reported that the island off Copenhagen’s coast will first have to the cleared of swine fever and other dangerous diseases before the new inhabitants are sent there.

Criminal immigrants whom Denmark is unable to expel from the country will be placed on a deserted island in Stege Bay south of the Danish capital, the tabloid newspaper BT reported. The decision came after budget negotiations with the right-wing Danish People’s Party, who wholeheartedly welcomed the message.

According to Danish Finance Minister Kristian Jensen of the liberal-conservative Venstre party, criminal foreigners slated to be expelled from Denmark will in the future be placed on the uninhabited island of Lindholm, located in the south-eastern part of the country, about 80 kilometres south of Copenhagen, where staff from the Prison and Probation Service also will be stationed.

Among others, the decision will apply to rejected asylum seekers who have a criminal…

The drunken pen (Version 1)

Eatgrueldog

Why do you lie

While I sleep?

Telling things

That I should keep

Oh, Drunken pen

Trailing ink

Telling stories while I drink

Where are you

When I wake?

Gone, gone

But the ink

Just the ink

On paper traced

nothing left

But stories, Stories,

To be told

In the dark

Never, ever to be shown

in the light of day

But drunken pen

Why do you,

Yet sober stay

So far and  far away?

Adam and Eve: Genetic Science Confirms Bible Again

StopAndPrayTV

The Bible and its account of origins is treated with utter contempt by cultural elites, those who look down their long noses at the rubes and hayseeds (like me) who place great confidence in the Book.

Well, the elites better hope their snobbish peers don’t get their hands on the report about the latest in genetic science. The reason: genetic scientists are telling us now that there is powerful and virtually irrefutable scientific evidence that every human being on earth has descended from a single pair of parents. The Bible, of course, goes science one better, and even gives us the names of our original ancestors, “Adam” and “Eve.”

Note this headline from the Daily Mail, one of the UK’s largest circulation newspapers:

“All humans are descended from just TWO people…” (Emphasis theirs.) And it happened virtually yesterday in evolutionary time, somewhere around 100,000 years ago.

VIDEO When Believers Prefer Spiritual Fantasy to Biblical Truth

StopAndPrayTV

Earlier this year, I spent a considerable amount of time with my team producing a video titled, “The Real Truth About the Paleo Hebrew Script.” The video, using lots of illustrations and quotes, makes one simple point: The ancient Hebrew script (called Paleo Hebrew) which was used in writing the earliest books of the Bible is simply an alphabet and has no pictographic meaning.

That was it.

Yet the reaction to this video from critics – and I mean professing Bible-believers – has been almost hysterical. They are wedded to the notion that the letters of the Hebrew Bible still retain a pictographic meaning, hence allowing them to read all kinds of extravagant (and totally unwarranted) meanings into the biblical text.

From a scholarly viewpoint, our video says absolutely nothing controversial or debatable. Any linguist familiar with the material knows that by the time a written language develops…
