  1. Ok, I admit it... I dug up some of my garden seeds on Saturday because I was getting worried that they weren't growing. :lol Your turn... :Bleh
  2. Oh yummy! I love sauerkraut!!! We had spaghetti.
  3. Celebrating the 72 degree weather... :Bleh We grilled hot dogs and also had cheese puffs and ice cream cones! :Green
  4. Makes no sense to me either. It is an external holiness rule made so that the powers that be could say to themselves that they are "skirts only" which they aren't really because they did allow the pants, which were seen anyway... :bonK:
  5. Breeches, in the Bible, were commanded for the priests alone for the purpose of covering their nakedness. The reason for this is because they stood above the congregation at times and didn't need to be showing their nether regions. Ex. 28:42. They were to go from the loin to the thigh (not the ankle like pants do). Exodus 28:42 And thou shalt make them linen breeches to cover their nakedness; from the loins even unto the thighs they shall reach: They were to put them on to perform certain tasks. Lev. 6:10 and 11 show this. He was to put them on and then take them off. Lev. 6:10 A
  6. Even option A was "in style" at one point in time - just not this one. It is not wrong to purposely dress like that but it is not "more spiritual" either to dress like that in opposition to today's styles. There are plenty of modest modern styles. Most husbands don't want their wife to look like something the cat dragged in - at least mine doesn't. Plainness and drabness do not equal spirituality. If they did then nuns and Amish women are the most spiritual people on the planet.
  7. No disrespect or crudeness intended but underwear is a "crotched" garment. I sincerely hope you don't forbid your wife from wearing..... Also, I'm kinda confused as to where the KJV's literal interpretation speaks against "crotched" garments. :huh:
  8. Yup. Same story for T-shirts as well - originally formal underwear for soldiers. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T-shirt
  9. PastorJ, are you trying to stir the pot??? :stir: :lol:
  10. Savory chicken Mashed potatoes Broccoli Homemade bread
  11. Ham, baked mac 'n cheese, spinach, chocolate chips cookies
  12. We had baked chicken, mashed potatoes, spinach and rolls for supper (aka, dinner ).
  13. How much of the earth did the Roman Empire cover? It wasn't limited to Italy and Israel. Rome controlled all of the known world at the time. So all the world means all the world. I doubt North & South America will be exempt. "ge" can mean a region but it can also mean the entire globe and the inhabitants thereof. You are deducing that "earth" means Israel because you believe "world" to be referring only to the Roman Empire, meaning one section. All means all. :thumb
  14. 1) The woman is Israel, not the church. The place prepared is for Israel. 2) As you are so fond of pointing out, :Green to whom was the discourse given? Also the Lord mentioned Daniel's prophecy. This is given to the Jews and the messenger told Daniel that the prophecy was determined upon his people and upon the Holy City (Jerusalem). This time is also called, "The time of Jacob's trouble". These are all Jewish references and have nothing to do with the Bride of Christ. 3) When taken at face value, it says that during the rapture the believers will be caught up in the clouds to
  15. BTW, I believe the bows, arrows and horses are literal also. It will be interesting to see how that comes to pass.
  16. I always thought so too but then I wondered how it fit the "peace and safety" scenario.
  17. Ok, yes I can see the differences. There still seems to be a few similarities though. I guess I don't think of Israel as living in peace until anti-Christ makes a treaty with them. But in comparison, they are probably in a kind of "peace" right now with all their military might. And the cities don't have walls around them. It is just all interesting because recently a Jewish television station broadcast a political map showing Gog and Magog and the prophecy of Ezekiel 38 in light of the very real thread of Iran and Iran's allies, namely Russia and most of the Arab world. Slightly o
  18. I understand that Rev. 20 is the whole world and a different battle. I'm talking about Rev. 19 and Jesus' 2nd Coming. That passage seems to indicate that Israel is under attack and Jesus rescues them. Then the Millennium starts; to me that coincides with Ez. 39. I really don't know though which is why I am asking. Can you show me from Scripture why you believe the battle to be before the Trib.?
  19. How many prophecies are there concerning Gog and Magog? It is my understanding that Gog and Magog come against Israel twice: post trib and post mill. Today I read that some people believe there is a 3rd attempt (actually 1st in their minds) and it is pre trib. They believe this war will usher in the anti-Christ and tribulation period. Anyone else ever heard of this and know what Scriptures these ppl use to back this up?
