the pure language

language is what you and I have to communicate, when we can’t communicate nothing is accomplished not even understanding, peace, friendship or spiritural or technological or medical or progress in sciences and innovation that benefits us all. when we can’t communicate and wish to we need a interperter, so if I want to learn about spanish I ask someone who speaks it and can speak english too so they can teach me. wouldn’t you?

so if you want to understand the bible you must understand it’s language otherwise your lost and will not benefit from the bible. I have found understanding it’s language to be exciting because then you can see the physical manifestation of it’s words prophecies and fruitages of its counsel.I have found in my ministry that people are confused by alot of the defintions of words in the bible, and understanding the prophecies and symbolisms.

I want to share some terms and defintions of what we as Jehovah’s wintesses have learned through heavy research and some serious prayer.  it is important if you can to have more than one version of the bible, like king james or new world translation or new standard or some other bible you have confidence in to reference.

I found there is confusion due to the word “coming” which many are saying they are waiting for Jesus second coming. some translations interpret the word “parasia” not sure of the exact spelling as coming, which actually means of the age or presence, matt 24:3 which conveys the idea of a long period of time not a coming and quick departure. He gave us a long list of things to look for and part of this included him casting satan to the earth before armegeddon which means he has to stay in heaven to do this. if you read this list you will see that much work has to be done before Christs millianium reign can begin.

What is a Kingdom? anyone going to look up this word in a dictionary and not take my word for it? a kingdom is a government, and a government has subjects, a ruler, and administrator of the kingdoms purposes. So I ask you how can you have a government in your heart? Paul spoke about being part of this government as he said he ran successfully and was looking forward to going to heaven to be a coruler with christ. Rather Jesus referred himself as in their midst he was future king and was in the people’s midst at that time not that a kingdom is in our hearts. REvelation 14:1-3. Dan 2:1-44, Revelation 21:3-4 matthew 6:9-10

I will keep the rest brief, here are some interesting terms and defintions to help you get more out of your bible reading.

waters: people in general, information or facts or lack there of, rebellious humans, isaiah 57:20, jude 4-13. Ephesians 5:26 Revelation 17:1,15

I know there is confusion too about the scripture at 2 peter 3:10-13 which describes the heavens and earth being made new and the old being destroyed. now remember if you read something in the bible it must not conflict with other scriptural references somewhere else in the bible, because if you read ecclesiates 1:4 it says the earth will remain forever, and psalms 46 talks about the earth changing and the mountains toppling into the sea (now i ask you do you think the literal mountains toppled into the sea?) one part says he raised his voice and the earth melted, so i ask you again did the earth go anywhere did it melt? also genesis 11:1 spoke of hte earth as having one language and one set of words,does the earth have a language? don’t people have a language and sets of words? this new earth is rightous people, earth that is destroyed is wicked people. Remember the scritpure in revelation about the sea being no more? they used this phrase in the movie the titanic when they were all hanging onto the priest guy and he was quoting the scriptures in a prayer,he said the sea is no more, remember isaiah said in 57:20 the wicked are like the sea that is unable to calm down, it is this sea the scripture is talking about. AWWW dont you just love bible language.

there is alot more like rocks, caves, ships, burning mountain, water turned to blood, and serpents seed, new jerusalum (most of these are found in revelation. Plagues is another. I would go over them now but I do not want to overwhelm everyone and I am tired, fighting off a stupid sinus infection and it is taking antibiotics a few days to really get it cleared up. right now suffering a terrible headache to go with it. but hopfully for those who love the bible this will be interesting reading the sited scriptures you all can go to jw.org too for more.

 

awww outer banks vacation gone bust

unfortnantly we cut our vacation short, I was just so bored, my hubby couldn’t get to any fishing spots, even the private piers were closed due to federal consessions, whatever that means,  we had no access to refuges, swimming holes, beach access was by some parking on side of road or private access which we had permission to use, we couldn’t do anything we had planned and on top of that my monthly decided to pay a visit, could’t of been a worst time for it. no hiking swimming or fishing or bird watching I was only able to get a few pictures, I spent most of the time sitting around the hotel room trying to figure out where to go and what to do. so we just left.

big bummer, frankly I don’t know what the people in governments’ problem is, they simply do not understand who really owns nature.  taxpayers paid for the access roads yet they forget it is not their money. but I guess that is the nature of power, you lose touch with reality and live in a world of delusions. I do have a few pictures to show.

milky way galaxy

 

I had watched an animation of how our solar system is situated in the milky way galaxy, and how the sun moves at incredible speed (132 miles per second) dragging us along, and how our sun revolves around it’s own sun which then revolves around its own sun, and how long that takes solar system to go complely around the galaxy about 122 billion years, (wow, talk about a long time!!!!!)can you imagine if you were on a space ship going 11 millions miles a day? wow, you could really cover some distance in no time, but really with regard to the galaxy and universe that is like going down the street in real time and distance. The producer of the video likened our sun to a comet with our planets revolving around in a vortex like sprial rather then circle.

And when I looked at the milky way galaxy and where our solar system was I was flabergasted at how tiny we were in relation to sirus, the center sun, and to the milky way galaxy itself. WOW!!!! And it is amazing that there are millions of other galaxies out there that are even bigger so I have been told. why do I bring this up? Well I have been watching and reading so much stuff from everyone to economists, scientists, to political anaylstes, to enviromental “experst”, to free will thinkers and philosphers you name it I have watched or read it. And I got to thinking after all the stuff I disagreed and agreed, I realized something that really puts it all into perspective.

We are incredily tiny, I mean really tiny, we have no idea how tiny we are in relation to all these forces in our world. The sun, sirus, the galaxy, the suns speed thorugh the universe, the distances we can’t even imagine, the powerful forces we can’t see like magnetism, gravity and proton belts and the whole works.

So when I think about all the stuff I have learned, mans attempts to solve the big problems of the world thorugh their ideas, some even using the power of the state (it’s military, police, lawmaking etc) and money I am taken aback at the arrogance we have, some without knowing it, to think we can solve big problems of wars, death, poverty, climate changes, desertification, forest management, water management, injustice, simply by giving power to another group calling themselves government, and using a few tools designed by scientists and researchers like cloud seeding, changing the amount of a trace gas like co2, or controling the weather in ways to avert perceived disasters or population control, increasing buaracracies, and forcing policy and rules on people for the sake of some problem when they don’t even understand the problem, the physics and how everything was designed, and cant even see beyond our own surroundings or know the difference between a truth and a lie, between justice and injustice, or between moral rights and wrongs and are on this planet a short time, and unable to even control our own thoughts very well, how in the name of anything sensible can we think we can do anything to alter these forces when we can’t even keep ourselves from dying or getting sick?

what has possessed even scientists and researchers who can see alot more about the forces of nature then us who can see the design, complexity, and the minimal impact we have on controling them, to even think they can control even the most rudimentary physical laws, let alone a complex system like the earth’s climate, land and water use, and massive problems humans have faced for thousands of years? wouldnt it be prudent to recognize our limitations and the need for something greater than ourselves? wouldnt it be good to humble ourselves and ask for help? Should we not now see the importance of jesus words when he said pray this way (our father in the heavens may your name be santified (hallowed) let your kingdom come, let your will take place as in heaven also upon the earth.)?

what say you?
