  1. I'm can't believe I'm contributing to the insanity of the fun and games forum BUT, here goes anyway! This is easy; in alphabetical order post one thing that is in your pantry. This includes any general food/kitchen item no matter where it is at the moment. For example, if you keep apples in a bowl on the counter, you can still say "apples". This also includes any other thing besides food if it is in your pantry or other food storage cabinet/shelf/compartment. If you keep your crock pot in your pantry, you can use it. If you keep your crock pot in a cabinet with other dishes you c
  2. The grammatical problem I see is that the verses plainly say that Messiah will be cut off after the 62 weeks which comes after the 7 weeks. It does not say that Messiah will be cut off in the middle of the 70th week. Nowhere in the O.T. is the church referenced. That's why Paul called it a mystery. The Jews did not know nor foresee it.
  3. You haven't fully explained all of verses 26 and 27... There is no way Christ is the fulfillment of every prophecy contained therein. Daniel 9:26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. 27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abomin
  4. You said that Christ fulfilled all the 70 weeks. Daniel 9 says the last week has someone making a deal for "one week", breaking the deal midway, stopping sacrifices, etc. for the PURPOSE of spreading abominations. How can you say this is fulfilled in Christ?
  5. dblev, There is no Scripture or even common sense that tells me that Revelation MUST be taken symbolically. I'm sure some people thought that many of the O.T. prophecies were "symbolic" too but they came to pass anyway. I'm happy to take God at His Word and fully believe these things will come to pass.
  6. But it doesn't say that. That idea is someone's attempt to explain away what they think can't be literal. There is no Scripture to support this idea.
  7. So without this "world view" no one will be able to buy and sell? I don't think so. The language is specific: He causes all to receive a mark in their right hand or forehead. No one can buy or sell without it. Why would you allegorize this? Rev. 13:16-And he causeth all, both small and great
  8. orvals, thanks for pointing out those conjunctions. I've often wondered about young children and mentally impaired people who aren't able to make an informed decision and who really wouldn't understand what they will be required to do. Maybe God will have mercy on them. Who knows, they might be the ones who go into the Millennium just like those who were 20 and under were allowed to live to enter Canaan.
  9. I can see how this could be the forerunner of The Mark but let's not forget that technology itself is not the mark. Someone could implant one in their child today and not be giving that child the mark. The mark is given en masse during the time of the anti-Christ and an allegiance will go along with it. Those who refuse will be executed.
  10. Ah, I see the gingerbread didn't make it to tomorrow's church lunch. :lol:
  11. Technology And American Society I'm reading it along with hubby for one of his college classes and yes, it is as dry as it sounds. Not really; it has some interesting stuff.
  12. Oh, BTW, our supper was eating out at Pizza Hut followed by ice cream for the kids and a mocha for the adults at McDonald's.
  13. Yes, my siggy is about the law firm called Dewey, Cheatum and Howe. (Do we cheat them and HOW!) It isn't as funny when you have to explain the joke. :frog
  14. :tip: I felt a little comic relief was in order. :frog (Which also explains my siggy that no one has commented on...)
  15. Baked fish, baked mac 'n cheese and lima beans.
  16. Wow, that sounds like heartburn for sure. :Green
  17. Yesterday's main meal (which happened to be lunch) was roast beef in the crock pot, noodles and corn.
  18. I stopped watching after the first one. :frog I started the 2nd one and couldn't finish it and started the 3rd one and couldn't finish it. Compared to the books, they were sooooo stooooooooooooooopid! But that's just me. :Green When I heard they killed off Willie, I completely gave up on them. :roll Sheesh! They make Missie out to be some kind of ERA woman or something. Hehe, sorry for the rant. :Bleh
  19. Yes, that is refreshing indeed! I had wondered about that...
  20. Ditto. I generally can't stand any movie that is unlike a book I've already read. If I see the movie first, it generally doesn't bother me as much.
  21. Erk...I can't stand the Love Comes Softly movies. They are hardly anything at all like the books. The books became popular for a reason and I hate it when screenplay writers take a good thing and rewrite it to suit their own purposes.
