Page Five: Thought Sherds 21-25
a play on words, you
the little Earthenware fragments that Archaeologists find, with
scriptures, notes, and things written on them,.... well if you have
to explain it...... it's not so funny anymore)
[thot '- surdz ] too small to be an article, but maybe big
enough to make a difference.
Learned Obedience through the things he Suffered -(Heb
all familiar with this passage, but really, what were the things he
suffered that he learned Obedience from ? And what kind of Obedience
did he learn ?
let's put on our little "thinking caps" (make sure you make
the little propeller spin on top. Thinking Caps always have
propellers, ev'rbody knows that) and let's do some thinking.........
Jesus's mother and brothers and sisters are mentioned as living
during the time of his ministry, his father Joseph is not. So, it's
not unreasonable to conclude that Joseph died before Jesus began his
ministry. If that is true, then Jesus had to suffer through watching
his father die at a time when he could not use his "super-powers"
(Holy Spirit) to save Joseph.
would have suffered as any child would in watching his father die.
is no question that God provided an exceptionally warm and loving
human father for Jesus. You must know that Mary was a wonderful
mom, why wouldn't Joseph be a wonderful dad ?
what specific lesson in obedience would
Jesus have learned through this specific suffering ?
knew his destiny, ministry, and abilities he would have later in
life, Jesus knew the Scriptures.
it is not hard to imagine Jesus begging God for
the ability to heal his human dad...... prematurely....
would be impossible for Jesus not to !
Jesus had not yet received holy spirit (baptism).
would Jesus learn to obediently respect the Timing of God's
arrangements ? Would Jesus learn that you always have
to do the right thing, even when it hurts like hell? (oops,
did I say hell ? sorry)
when He had to endure/suffer the presence of Judas for
years and never show contempt, He learned to always obey
the principle of 'principled love'. And never show by his
attitude or actions even the desire to wish Judas or anyone ill.
careful look at Jesus and his life will reveal many such "sufferings"
and what he "obediently" learned.
you think of some ?
not a Dress-Rehearsal, this is our real life. This is the life
we will be judged on.
Makes it a
little more serious, huh ?
Satan allowed to do genetic engineering on Humans ?
already has; the hybrid offspring of humans and angels before the
NOT the Nephilim.
is just the Biblical term for Giant Humans. Period.
carefully what the Bible says in Gen 6:4:
were giants [Nephilim]in the earth in those days; and
when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and
they bare [children] to them, the same [became] mighty men which
[were] of old, men of renown. "
When you use the terms in a sentence "and" "also"
and "after that", you
are referring to two separate groups,
it is triply
In fact, Nephilim are mentioned long
after the flood.
see Num 13:33. The promised land was LOADED with giants, yah
couldn't swing a dead cat without hittin' one, see also Deut 2:10,
Deut 3:11 (thats a stinking 13
Foot-long Bed !!)
Ahem..... So, who were the hybrid
Angel/Human offspring ?
Today we call them Neanderthals, now, hear
me out before you have a cow.
Scientists are very puzzled, very
puzzled I say, by the DNA of Neanderthals, it ain't like nuttin'
else. See here,
Isn't that what you would expect from a hybridized offspring from
Humans and Angels ?
And now the bad news: by studying the
fossil remains of Neanderthal teeth it appears that they
reached full adult maturity in anywhere from
7 to fourteen years,
and were MUCH stronger than humans, yikes ! here
it make sense that there would be fossil remains of the Angel/Human
hybrid offspring ?
Just a note; their appearance was similar
to the Character "Shrek"; normal height, thick-set, large
cranium, very powerful. Not giants height-wise but very
thus "men of
Nature reveal the Nature of God ?
If it is true that Satan can do Genetic Engineering
on Humans, how much more so on animals ?
And as "The God of
this World" (2 Cor 4:4) it would come as no surprise that he
would modify this world to reflect his values.
So, when you see a
gentle animal being ravaged by a predator, you are not seeing "The
Nature of God" reflected in nature.
Romans 8:22 say 'All
is groaning together'?)
fact Genesis tells us of a much different "Nature of Nature":
I have given every
green plant as food
the wild animals,
the birds in the sky, and the small animals that scurry along the
ground—everything that has life."-NLT
where can you See and find the Nature of God ?
In the Bible
and from his Spirit. Everything else is
whole world lies in the power of the evil one".
authorities are God's servants, sent for your good. But if you are
doing wrong, of course you should be afraid, for they have the power
to punish you. They are God's servants, sent for the very purpose of
punishing those who do what is wrong."
like a contradiction to me.
As unpleasant as it
sounds, Satan and God have Shared Custody of Mankind and the Earth.
(creepy huh ?)
After Man was rejected by God in the Garden, Satan
did some 'Dumpster Diving', and harvested what God had thrown out:
i.e. Adam, Eve, Their Children, Dominion of Animals etc. etc.
were things that were the property of Adam.
Got did not throw out His Own property
i.e. His Kingship, His Government, Some property rights, etc. etc.,
thus He retained a degree of Governmental control and limited
property rights. Hence we see otherwise inexplicable conundrums such
as Kings sometimes doing Satan's bidding, and sometimes God's
Examples: Nebuchadnezzar, Cyrus, Darius, etc.
it's all about the perfection of God's Law, and hence, like any legal
battle, it can be messy and have irregular boundaries.
about the Earth and Walking about in it.
roaming about on the earth and walking around on it."
Job 1:7 NASB KJV and others.
Why Roaming AND Walking about in it ?
Well "roaming" (Strong's H7751) refers more to travel but
H1980 can refer literally to walking. So, not only did Satan "Patrol"
(NLT) the earth, but apparently he materialized and literally walked
about in it . It would seem quite likely that his recommendation
to fellow Angels to come to earth and have sex with women was based
on personal experience (reasonable speculation here). And so when
their hybrid offspring died at the flood a perpetual mourning
celebration honouring their dead wives and children was instituted on
the anniversary of the Flood of Noah's day, i.e. Cheshvan
17. (Gen 7:11)
