  1. Where is your crown?

    Yesterday, we talked about "tashlich" -- the traditional Jewish ceremony occurring between Rosh ha Shana and Yom Kippur, which involves casting bread crumbs into a river while confessing our sins and watching them be swept downstream. In this passage, however, we read about the importance of casting our crowns. These elders fell down before the Lord, casted their golden crowns and gave God the glory and honor He deserves. How much more should we do the same today? The post Where is your crown? appeared first on Worthy Christian Devotional - Daily Devotions. Read the entire devotional.
  2. One of the more beautiful ceremonies of the Jewish faith is called "Tashlich". Tashlich means to cast away. Every year between Rosh haShana and Yom Kippur, Jewish people around the world journey to a nearby river or stream and cast in bread crumbs as they confess their sins. As the bread crumbs are swept downstream soon to be out of sight, so they believe God will sweep away their sins.

  3. Happy Birthday, Mr. George!! Praying for HIS blessings and favor to always be upon you! :)

  4. One of the major themes of Rosh Hashana is called Akedat Yitzchak, which means the Binding of Isaac. According to Jewish tradition, God told Abraham that the ram's horn – otherwise known as a shofar – should be blown on Rosh Hashana to remind people of the sacrifice that God provided Himself when Abraham was about to offer Isaac on Mount Moriah.

    From the beginning of creation, God's purposes were always good ... and the end result is for good. In the beginning, God saw -- and it was good. Gen 1:31 And God saw everything that He had made, and behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. Now trying to twart God's plans and purposes, was the great deceiver -- and from the beginning was trying to get mankind to disobey God -- and it continues even until now. As the serpent deceived Eve -- and continues now -- with the same phraseology -- Has God really said? Did Jesus really say that He is the "way, the truth and the life; and no man comes by me"? Is the Bible true? You see, even from the beginning until now -- is the same question from the beginning - did God really say? And we see the end result of rejection of what God gives us -- Rev 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the Lake of Fire. This is the second death. Rev 20:15 And if anyone was not found having been written in the Book of Life, he was cast into the Lake of Fire. So you see that the vast multitudes of the world will be judged ... just as God said ... and thus we will find out -- Did God really mean what He said? Now throughout time, the great deceiver has been trying to destroy the people of God, by destroying the "lineage" of the promised One -- the Messiah -- Jesus. And so throughout the Old Testament, you will see God in His mercy to preserve the lineage of the Messiah -- as he allowed the peoples of the world to die in one fashion or another. But soon enough, the result after hell and death -- we see once again God's purpose -- in creating what He always wanted to establish. Rev 21:1 I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth have passed away, and the sea is no more. Rev 21:2 I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared like a bride adorned for her husband. Rev 21:3 I heard a loud voice out of heaven saying, “Behold, God’s dwelling is with people, and he will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. Rev 21:4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; neither will there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain,any more. The first things have passed away.” Rev 22:1 And he showed me a pure river of Water of Life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. Rev 22:2 In the midst of its street, and of the river, from here and from there, was the Tree of Life, which bore twelve fruits, each yielding its fruit according to one month. And the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. Rev 22:3 And every curse will no longer be; but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His servants will serve Him. Rev 22:4 And they will see His face, and His name will be in their foreheads. Rev 22:5 And there will be no night there. And they need no lamp, or light of the sun; for the Lord God gives them light. And they will reign forever and ever. So while some may look at the judgment of God in dealing with the nations as some sort of "evil", His thoughts are higher than our thoughts, and His ways are higher than our ways -- and the result of all He has done -- was to preserve a people for Himself. He would go to any length to do so ... and did what was necessary to preserve the lineage of His Messiah. In the end, we see that His plan was to send His Son to die for mankind ... to pay a debt that we could not pay for ourselves. So while we cannot fully comprehend all that God has done or is doing, we do know that God is working out His plan ...
  6. Christians will occupy the holy Land

    These kind of personal attacks will not be tolerated. Next time, you'll be banned from this topic.
  7. When Nations turn against Israel

    This is questioning someone's salvation and surely a personal attack. Please don't do it again. Next time, you'll be removed from this discussion. God bless, George
  8. Shana tova oo-metukah!

    Tonight begins one of the highest holy days of all the feasts of the Bible, Rosh ha Shana (Head of the Year). According to Jewish tradition, Rosh haShana is the Day of Judgment, the day when the righteous have their names inscribed in the Book of Life and the wicked are judged for their transgressions. It is a day to commemorate the creation of the world, the creation of mankind, and the Akeida, the binding of Isaac to the altar. On this day only the ram’s horn (or the shofar) is blown in synagogues all over the world to commemorate the ram that was provided in lieu of Isaac’s life and call us to repentance.

  9. Last night began the feast of Rosh Ha Shannah, or Yom Teruah -- the Feast of Trumpets. At the end of the summer the Hebrews are commanded to blow the shofar -- the ram’s horn, all day long. The sound of the shofar was a sound of alarm -- it told the people to get ready. It marked in the calendar that the summer harvest was over and the day of atonement was near and it was time to stand before God.

  10. I find that walking away ... losing a battle ... is sometimes necessary to win a war.
  11. You see, that's what I would call a personal attack and it really doesn't help. Degratory insults aren't what the Bible teaches us how to teach. 2 Ti 2:23 Have nothing to do with foolish, ignorant controversies; you know that they breed quarrels. 2 Ti 2:24 And the Lord's servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, 2 Ti 2:25 correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth, 2 Ti 2:26 and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will. We correct in love and kindness -- patiently enduring the evil insults toward us -- and if it so happens -- God will allow them to see the truth! I trust that's how to deal with those in "opposition" to themselves. It's Biblical.
  12. I appreciate it. I find that I've learned more from those I disagree with -- than those I agree with -- as it sharpens my arguments -- redefines my positions. I love a good discussion in love.
  13. Honestly, you just need to report them and let the moderators deal with them. We just like to sharpen one another in love. There's no place for personal attacks on the forums. The goals of the forums are not to see who wins a debate -- but sharpening one another in love. Pro 27:17 Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another. When you have personal attacks, then it's no longer sharpening one another -- it's the opposite effect. Pro 18:19 A brother offended is more unyielding than a strong city, and quarreling is like the bars of a castle. So we're trying to grow from one another -- not bash one another.
  14. This is another instance of a personal attack. Let's not do this any longer. Thanks! If you see any personal attacks ... please report it. I didn't have time to read through this thread ... but there's a couple that has been reported and I'm not going to spend my time reading through this thread.
