  1. Reading your post brought something to remembrance I never even thought about. It's wonderful seeing my children and grandchildren scattered all over the place for Thanksgiving. Stuffing our faces, all the leftovers, undoing 2-3 belt notches, napping, playing with the grand kids, etc. At our church we have several elderly widows whom are basically shut-ins and normally someone with a debilitating illness or injury, they don't live far from me. Why haven't I thought about them and called and asked what they were doing for Thanksgiving? And at a minimum stopping by and delivering a meal to them? As a Christian, doesn't that make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
  2. Thank you for your post. Something in your post hit me like a brick, and makes me think how selfish and self centered I've been every Thanksgiving. Lord willing, starting this Thanksgiving I'd like to change that.
  3. Genesis 2:4 (KJV) These are the generations [the history] of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens, [emphasis added] These verses are a further detailed explanation of the creation week, an addendum or parenthetical insertion. I have questions myself about Genesis chapters 1 & 2. There are no contradictions anywhere in the Bible, it's our perception or understanding in the way. Some claim the Hebrew words 'asah' and 'bara' are synonymous. There's a long discussion on these words in a recent thread so won't get into it again. If these two words 'made' and 'created' are taken literally by most Hebrew translations, and are not synonymous, it personally makes more sense to me. But anyway, I take Gen. 2: as filling in some blanks.
  4. This is one end-time indicator that generally generates little attention watching end-time events unfold. All nations will come against Israel here in the near future, and all means all. All Jew's are eventually going to return to their homeland; is antisemitism and persecution going to be the cause? I was watching a recent Billy Crone video just last night on the subject [what a knowledgeable, bright and well spoken man]. You'll seldom see it reported in the major media, the antisemitism escalating against the Jew's nationally and globally. Obama and his administration were the most hostile US administration to Israel since its founding. Not even to mention the hostility of the United Nations toward Israel; I was shocked and unaware of the number of organizations nationally and globally that have popped up their ugly heads against Israel. Everywhere from so called 'Christian Churches' and their boycotts, to American universities, politicians and the public at large. The Jew's are the problem to the worlds ills, and it's catching on big time. Trump has somewhat squelched our national policy toward Israel and it a good friend; but behind the scenes and including the State Department, it's still building hatred. Should Trump not see a second term, there's no doubt in my mind the US will completely turn against Israel and its policies in a hostile manner. God is on the throne and is in control; He raises and removes leaders according to His will, purpose and pleasure. With that said; I strongly suspect the 2020 US presidential election, is going to determine our short term fate as a nation. With the US not being an obstacle to Israel and the one world government with a Democrats in control, we'll be on the bullet train. Our legislators and representatives represent the attitudes and will of their constituents. Look at all the "OPEN" liberal, socialist, communist, America haters and Muslim sympathizers front and center in the news trying to destroy our founding ideals, laws, freedoms and our nation. Time is close and it won't be long now.
  5. In my lifetime, I couldn't have imagined how quick the world changed and the evil that is waxing worse and worse.
  6. And if you were a biblical statistician, what would you perceive the odds as
  7. I'm glad you see the wisdom and foresight of our founding fathers creating our 2nd Amendment; to combat tyranny and preserve our other rights. We see globally [China, Russia, Germany, N. Korea, Muslim nations] what happens when people amass to protest their treatment, with mass slaughter and a harsher regime. People that allowed their countries to confiscate [Canada, England, Australia, etc.] their weapons for self defense and government tyranny, are sheep awaiting the slaughter when the government turns against them, as always happens.
  8. It is, and pertaining to this topic, the particular Hebrew words "hayah" and "asah". The correct meaning and translation of these two words, will give the verses of creation a different understanding. Again, I'm just looking at this right now from the gap theory perspective, looking at both sides of the debate.
  9. To dove tail some on what Willa said above: I hear credible reports Christianity is spreading rapidly in repressed nations; such as N. Korea, Iran and many other Muslim nations [all under the threat of death]. All polls I've seen show "claimed" Christianity declining in the United States, down to 75%, the last poll I've seen. But like Willa stated and to paraphrase, "the details are in the parameters and how the question is asked". Polls I've seen with the breakdowns of what these Christians believe, 60% of the respondents do not hold to the core tenets and beliefs of the faith for Salvation. If the poll's I'm seeing reflect 75% of Americans claim to be Christian... Why are we in the shape morally and spiritually we're in? How are laws getting enacted calling good evil, and evil good? Why are 75% claiming the name of Christian, allowing society and government to kick God out of everywhere?
  10. Sounds like you're a Berean Acts 17:11 (KJV) These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. Glad you're here and a big welcome to Worthy!
  11. Greetings and a big welcome to Worthy!
  12. That doesn't seem to be the half of it. These Pagans and pagan idols and practices are coming out of the woodwork all over. Just a few that come to mind on the top of my head: The actual alter of Zeus in Berlin, Germany; the gate of Baal in New York City; Shiva the destroyer at CERN.
