(CLV) Mt 23:1
Then Jesus speaks to the throngs and to His disciples,
(CLV) Mt 23:2
saying, "On Moses' seat are seated the scribes and the Pharisees.
(CLV) Mt 23:3
All, then, whatever they should be saying to you, do and keep it. Yet according to their acts do not be doing, for they are saying and not doing.
The Torah was read from the Moses Seat.
(CLV) Jn 7:16
Jesus, then, answered them and said, "My teaching is not Mine, but His Who sends Me.
(CLV) Jn 14:15
If you should be loving Me, you will be keeping My precepts.
(CLV) 1Jn 5:3
For this is the love of God, that we may be keeping His precepts. And His precepts are not heavy,

I manifest Thy name to the men whom Thou givest Me out of the world. Thine they were, and...
My family came from Germany, helped with the revolutionary war, and then settled what would become Merrimac Mines, Va. The people were well to do, but were what most would consider poor. When I came along I would help plant potatoes and onions this time of year with the rest of the garden going in in April, hoping we would not get the late frost. Putting up hay for the cattle was also a summer job.
Another thing was that most people raised hogs. When they were done with the swine there was little left to waste. I can remember my mother saving pork grease in coffee cans where she would fry French fries using the grease. Not to mention the finer meats such as bacon, sausage, pork chops, and ham. I have heard many say that the pig was...
Listening to Boris Johnson was a bit like sitting in the headmaster's office, but his speech this evening will radically transform the way we live our everyday lives.
- We are to stay at home, unless our work is essential.
- We are only to go out to buy essential goods. Shops selling non-essential goods will be closed.
- No visiting friends or family.
- No public gatherings of more than two people, and the two people must be those who are living together in the same house
- Police have powers to disperse gatherings and fine those who do not comply.
These drastic measures will be with us for some time and I hope they are effective in combatting the spread of Covid-19.
What are the signs of the EOA ? Can we know or better should we know
Jesus took exception to the Pharisees and Sadducees for not knowing , Matthew 16 -’ You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times.
They should have known from Daniel’s seventy week prophecy that his was coming was near , as Daniel knew from Jeremiah’s writing that the 70 years of captivity was near the end.
When the disciples asked , Jesus answered this question with clear signs.Matthew 24 - False Christs , wars , famines , and earthquakes.
These are all the beginning of the birth pains. Can we say we are seeing this “beginning” now ?
Jesus follows this with martyrdom and a falling away Matthew 24 -...
Some of you will jump down my throat for saying that. But I wish to share.
I pray often, and quite often think things trough and pray to God based upon His word. Be that to seek healing for the sick, or to see God's will promoted in the earth.
Before the Corona Virus came into the earth, I would often pray to God,and my mind would be directed to the constant push of the world toward homosexuality, and them trying to silence the church. This angered me. And I believe that God also would have shared to a degree my anger.
But thoughts would come to me, and I did not know whether it was God, or not, but thoughts revolving around, what could be done by God to solve the issue of homosexual promotion. I would have thoughts that may be the...
I already know my thinking is wrong; there is no need to tell me that much. I'd like to know, please, exactly where the errors are and how to correct them with Scripture.
I have it in my head that people's lives are written out beforehand, sort of like a book. Events and outcomes are already decided. This is going to happen on page 16, and that will happen on page 300. There is nothing the character in the book can do to change it. In fact, it really doesn't matter what the character wants. If she wants with all her heart to be a ballerina, but the author has written a story about a character who never gets to be a ballerina, then something will always happen to stop her from becoming a ballerina, because that's the plot.
"From all eternity God decreed everything that occurs, without reference to anything outside himself. He did this by the perfectly wise and holy counsel of his own will, freely and unchangeably. Yet God did this in such a way that he is neither the author of sin nor has fellowship with any in their sin. This decree does not violate the will of the creature or take away the free working or contingency of second causes. On the contrary, these are established by God’s decree. In this decree God’s wisdom is displayed in directing all things, and his power and faithfulness are demonstrated in accomplishing his decree."
- Chapter 3, Section 1, Second London Baptist Confession of 1689
