  1. CHRIST THE CENTRE OF THE BIBLE. Foreshadowing Christ.

    hello Marilyn Its interesting to see the inter-conectiveness how it all pulls together
  2. CHRIST THE CENTRE OF THE BIBLE. Overview of the Old Testament.

    hello Marilyn I find it very helpful to emphasize the body of Christ along with the Israeli account. As of course we don’t have the same History as the Israelites. The land is as part of the people as the people are of the land. Yes foreshadowing and types that are in the old testament and into the new testament I am busy studying to see if I can find them! many thanks mabel
  3. CHRIST THE CENTRE OF THE BIBLE. Overview of the Bible.

    hello Marilyn have been looking forward to this blogg I have never really given it much thought who the authors were of the bible other than thinking gee how many years from the event to the recorded word. How can this be authentic so I guess I have to take it as gospel! As you know I am going through the bible started again and now I am at Deutronomy . Its good that there is a mix as life is a mixed bag. The Psalms are very helpful and I have used them when things are bleak. Ah and did you know that Pilgrims progress by John Bunyan is the second most selling book after the bible so I am told. Quite mind boggling that the Jews rejected their Messiah. I can only imagine this was so because of all the legality that seemed to be the primary focus and of course they wrere expecting a warrior to deliver them from the Romans I like the diagram it saves a lot of reading! Ah but much more than that it helps to Place things in my minds eye so to speak in a way that words just d0nt. many thanks for these bloggs i do find them interesting and helpful
  4. Appoloyn And Buddha

    i guess .....what i would like to remind folk is that in spite of all these things coming together in the all inclusiveness. the only real deal is Jesus. i had a friend who got so lost researching about aliens (and they were christian !) that she was moving away from Jesus. and what was worse she tried to encourage me to do the same.
  5. Appoloyn And Buddha

    Hi 1 to 3 yeah thanks. I was just posting this thread to raise awareness. Having gone down the all things s/newage for a wee while. I can see it now without watching. Its drawing all these threads together as one big 'happy new,' religion
  6. Appoloyn And Buddha

    while i was listening to this service on the radio the preacher talked about mindfulness meditation being a good thing but they didnt clarify the christian aspect of this and so a new christian would assume that mindfulness meditation is a christian practice. this is where it gets blurred for me i mean as a christian a similar but not the same thing is contemplation. so i can only take from that that the church fully endorse buddhist mindfulness practice. oh yeah we tweak it in the west to make it more user friendly but its still a pagan practice and that is what i was waiting for this preacher to spell out but didnt.
  7. Appoloyn And Buddha

    what struck me today is immediately after the christian service you have this pagan stuff and it makes me realise that the dawn of the civilisation was tarred from the very beginning. the tree of knowledge takes us away and down the rabbit hole of counterfeit that has lots of bells and whistles to hide the dark, oh yeah and distracted of course.
  8. Appoloyn And Buddha

    3. http://www.ancient-origins.net/human-origins-religions/what-does-alexander-great-have-do-buddhist-imagery-005293 Seeing Buddha The innovative anthropomorphic Buddha appearance was obviously inspired by the style of Hellenistic artists, and it immediately reached a very high level of sculptural sophistication. The monuments and sculptures of Buddha from this period influenced Buddhist art and transformed it forever. The Buddha of this time looked much like the Belvedere Apollo (330 AD), beautiful and dressed in Hellenistic style. He is shown in a light toga, with a halo, the contrapposto stance of the upright figures, classical Mediterranean curly hair, and the top-knot. Some of the Buddha statues were also made using the Greek technique ================================================================== 4. https://encyclopedia2.thefreedictionary.com/Appolyon Apollyon (əpŏl`yən) [Gr.,=Destroyer], in the Book of Revelation, name of the angel of the bottomless pit. ========================================================================================== 5. http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/pilgrims/character/apollyon/ Apollyon wants to thwart Christian. Like Giant Despair, also bent on thwarting Christian, Apollyon has a physical irregularity that displays his evil. Apollyon is a hybrid being, part dragon, bear, human, and fish. These symbolic combinations convey his immense power, suggesting that he draws energy from all corners of the universe Apollyon signifies subjection to worldly forces. He represents the opposite of the spiritual freedom that Christian expresses in leaving behind his worldly existence. Apollyon’s name evokes the Greek god Apollo, lord of the beauty and form that dominates worldly values. Apollo was a pagan deity, far removed from the Christian God that the pilgrim strives toward. ====================================================================== Isn’t that strange as I was studying this I have the radio on for the weather and road report and the radio presenter started to talk about Appolloyn! And his attributes to medicine- Can only happen to me lol eeeeek think the Lord is taking me on a journey this morning! …………………………………………………………….............................................................................................. 6. https://www.livescience.com/33104-why-is-the-medical-symbol-a-snake-on-a-stick.html There are actually two versions of the symbol. The winged version is known as a caduceus, and the stick is actually a staff that was carried by the Olympian god Hermes. In Greek mythology, Hermes was a messenger between the gods and humans (which explains the wings) and a guide to the underworld (which explains the staff). ==================================================================== 7. https://www.greekmythology.com/Olympians/Apollo/apollo.html the god of healing, giving the science of medicine to man; the god of light; and the god of truth. One of Apollo's most important daily tasks was to harness his four-horse chariot, in order to move the Sun across the sky. ................................................................................................................................................................................. Gee and now its time for a mug o tea." I think therefore I am," eeek that’s enough on my plato..zip
  9. Appoloyn And Buddha

    i wanted to put this in general discussion but i dont want to ask a question! so the only other place is here so feel free to move it to a more appropriate place Ah another round of the beast from the east and what else is there left to do than a thread! …………………………………………………………….......................................................................................................................... 1. https://carm.org/questions/about-demons/was-lucifer-originally-angel-worship This is why some people suspect that Lucifer (name means ‘light bearer’) was involved with music and therefore worship before God. But because of Lucifer’s exceeding beauty and greatness, some suspect he became prideful and rebelled against God. ================================================================== 2. https://www.eurotravelogue.com/2012/05/artsmart-roundtable-study-of-apollo.html Apollo Belvedere statue housed in the Vatican Museum. As you probably know, Apollo is the god of light and music not to mention a skilled archer as well. Often identified with the sun in many a classical myth, Apollo was son to Zeus and Leto—daughter to one of the mighty Titans of ancient Greek mythology. ………………………………………………………………................................................................................................................................................ There is comparison of a sculpture of David ah yes the counterfeit along with the real stuff rather like this morning which set me off looking into this subject again the radio …I thought gee the radio has actually got a Christian church service on and then afterwards the program that followed talked about the Greek beginnings and how the statute of Buddha resembled the statute of Appollo and I thought hello that’s interesting had never considered the connection. ………………………………………………………………...................................................................................
  10. TV

    the media imo have from the very start been slowly eroding moral decency. no one seems to bat an eye about much if anything these days. i dread to think what children will turn out like being slowly programmed to accept immoral things. i see it in society and gee the radio has to be heard to believe the absolute filthy rags it is churning out as 'entertainment'
  11. TV

    well its a repeat or as the bbc say now another chance to see
  12. TV

    why would a christian want to watch a program like this the very title of this show its certainly not edifying. these days even so called edifying stuff is tainted as i witnessed a couple of weeks ago. i was watching songs of praise a BBC religious program that is getting more secular each week and when some one said that Adam instructed his son to plant a tree i thought what the ...so now they seem to be inserting misinformation as well
  13. THE MILLENNIUM - God`s Glory through Israel.

    now is this what kicks off Armageddon the new temple being built as the mosque would be in the way....apologies ..dont have much of an understanding of events at the mo
  14. THE MILLENNIUM - Judgment.

    i find that such a hard concept that people are taken off ....to everlasting punishment...maybe a sort of quarantine but everlasting ....i mean a lot of folk who are decieved and have been for a long time and dont even realise because of all the distractions of vanity fayre from their youngest days. i mean its a miracle that my life has changed as i was one of those folk until a few years ago i had no idea that i was being decieved it took a vicar and his wife to gradually get through to me. i mean the church was so austere and was irrelvent to me then and i do struggle with it still today. i at times feel very let down by the church as they dont teach you about things like spiritual warfare just to name one thing.. and therefore i am solo on my journey for the biggest part.
  15. Your Study Plan?

    hey what a brilliant question! for me i keep going through the bible start to finish and along the way i go off on different trails which makes it very informative- being mindful and to the best that i can be sure to get facts and not a rabbit hole! each time i go through i think of a different focus i.e initially it was the geneology and then listing the Kings those are just two areas i really enjoy doing this. i have had no formal study background. i dont adhere to any study tools as these slow me down. maybe in the future i might but not at the mo. i am also tying scriptures together to give me an overview which makes it very interesting loving the computer for this. doing the bible on line has opened things up for me dunno if it makes it easier for the dyslexia as before i found it hard to read a few verses now i can read many chapters! who knows i might even start a house group one day.
