    Does 1 Corinthians 13:8-12 teach the sign gifts have ceased?

    Pentecostalism did not start in the early twentieth century,. There was a "gifts" movement in England and Scotland in the early 19th century under the ministry of Edward Irving. Although Irving died in about 1833, the movement continued well into the 20th century. My dad said one of his sisters attended one of their meetings in the 1920's. Of course the Irvingites were not the first to claim that. In the late 1600's there were the Camisards, or French Prophets. When they made war with the state, they were more or less wiped out, but some came here to England. Charles Wesley wrote in his journal that he shared a room with one of the French Prophets who "gobbled like turkey cock all night." There is I have copies some books written about the time of Irving. One is Modern Claims to the Extraordinary Gifts of the Holy Spirit. by Rev Wm Goode 2nd edition, 1834 (That is the short title, the Evangelical Library in London has it under a shorter title, Goode's Modern Claims. This was republished several years ago with modern updates under the title of Charismatic Confusion. The first edition of Goode's book is available online somewhere. Brother Scott. That is what I believed, I always understood it to mean "If I were to speak" etc,

    The beauty of creation

    A few miles from here there was a cornfield on a slope that was covered in these poppies. At the top of the hill they were all red and as it went down the slope, they changed to purple until at the bottom they were all purple.

    A question on the above Brother Scott.. 1 ΒΆ Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling Cymbal, Is Paul actually saying he speaks with the tongues of angels?

    Oil all gone in 30 years, what next?

    When God created the earth, he also created and provided all the means for life and commerce. Soil to provide crops. Clay to provide bricks. Chalk to supply concrete. Metals to provide tools. Gold and precious stones to provide currency. Wood, coal and oil to provide power. What makes you think God's providence will run out?

    The former secretary of Day One, John Roberts (He is a Yorkshireman) comes to speak at our church from time to time and always brings some of their publications. He said that the British Museum Bookshop asked them to come and see them and said they had heard of Through the British Museum with the Bible.and would like to order 900. They also said they had heard of Evidence for the Bible. and would like to order 250. Since then they have ordered many more and the last I heard, they had a monthly order of 50 of Evidence for the Bible.

    Day one publications also do a book by the same authors as the above called Evidence for the Bible. This is described as a coffee table book. It is also sod in the British Museum Library. https://www.dayone.co.uk/products/evidence-for-the-bible

    We have pigs in blankets or piggies in blankets. They are chipolatas or sometimes cocktail sausages wrapped in bacon, often accompanying Turkey for Christmas lunch. When will you be in London? I know. But it is easier to get some from the freezer and pop them in the oven for four or five minutes. I have not made them for years. I will have to make them again. We usually serve them with roast beef, but some people serve them with any roast meal.

    Most people I know these days buy frozen Yorkshires. I guess I am guilty of that as well. Shame on me.

    Whats for Supper...

    I have known people from Yorkshire who say that Yorkshires or Yorkies, are served as a separate course served with Jam (Conserve) My wife who comes from Yorkshire, Sheffield, says she has never heard of that. When we were children we had Toad in the Hole, sausages in a Yorkshire Pudding. We also had Chop Toad, Lamb chops in a Yorkshire pudding. I am doing roast chicken tonight. I intended to have it at lunch time but it didn't defrost in time. I will probably just have it with bread and butter. I had the roast veggies at lunch time. Potatoes, carrot, parsnip, celeriiac, onion. courgette. All sprinkled with herbes de Provence, powdered garlic and a little olive oil. The flavours all mingle and we find it quite delicious. Served with steamed green beans. I did fennel with the roast vegetables for the last week but my wife said she hadn't noticed, then yesterday she noticed it as there was some green on it, and said she didn't like it. I like to do a good selection of vegetables for us to get a selection of vitamins.

    Today, for lunch, I did Salmon for lunch with baked potato, roast carrot, red onion, and Fennel. For supper I did a frozen puff pastry sheet with a sort of ratatouille with black Greek style olives on top. Very tasty.

    Omer of Manna

    I had never noticed that before. Also 2 Chronicles 5:10. 1 and 2 Kings do not mention the ark after the time of Solomon and it is only mentioned once in 2 Chronicles 35:3
