It told how an archaeologist had discovered a site which fitted into the Biblical narrative. The site was said to be the altar which Joshua had directed to be built on Mount Ebal.
Joshua 8:30 Then Joshua built an altar unto the Lord God of Israel in mount Ebal,
The majority of archaeologists do not like any findings which fit into the Biblical narrative or which remind them of the God of the Bible.
All the findings which show the veracity of the Bible are quickly explained away, sidelined and ignored, the majority of archaeologists do not like to retain God in their knowledge, exactly as it is stated in Romans 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Have a happy 12th day everyone.
Here is some recommended reading for the holidays.
Below is the closing paragraphs from the History of Protestantism, celebrating Williams ascent to the throne.
The throne being thus vacated, a Convention was held, and the crown was settled on the Prince and Princess of Orange. William ascended the throne as the representative of Protestantism. That throne, destined to become the greatest in the world, we behold won for the Reformation.
This was the triumph, not of English Protestantism only, it was the triumph of the Protestantism of all Christendom. It was the resurrection of the cause of the French Huguenots, and through them that of Calvin and the Church of Geneva. It was the revival not less of the cause of the Scots Covenanters, whose torn and blood-stained flag, upheld at the latter end of their struggle by only a few laymen, was soon to be crowned with victory. William the Silent lives once more in his great descendant, and in William III fights over again his great battle, and achieves a success more glorious and dazzling than any that was destined to cheer him in his mortal life.
Protestantism planting herself at the center of an empire whose circuit goes round the globe, and whose scepter is stretched over men of all kindreds, languages, and nations on the earth, with letters, science, colonies, and organized churches round her as her ministers and propagators, sees in this glorious outcome and issue the harvest of the toils and blood of the hundreds of thousands of heroes, confessors, and martyrs whom she has reared. One sowed, another reaped, and now in the accession of William III both rejoice together.
We found Protestantism at the bar of the hierarchy in St. Paul’s in the person of John Wicliffe, we leave it on the throne of England in the person of William III. While the throne of England continues to be Protestant, Great Britain will stand; when it ceases to be Protestant, Britain will fall.
Hebrews 10:38 Now the just shall live by faith:
Given the past machinations of the Duppers since approx 2006, nothing can be ruled out.
It would be most fortunate for them if they can say, “We voted against it BUT Westmonster went over our heads.”
Ezek 22:30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.
John 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
It will be a major embarrassment to the BBC if they fail to take up the challenge. I have not seen the Spotlight programme, so I have no idea whether their claims are accurate or not.
This latest instalment comes at the end of a bad new week for the Duppers, the week started badly with a story about the singing lounge lizard David Lundy Simpson MP. He is a prolific texter by all accounts.
Will the DUP scandals ever end? Rich men are in great peril but most of them never realise it until they have lost their soul.
Mark 8:36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
The divinely inspired words of the 23rd Psalm are among the most well known pieces of literature in world history.
The most important word in the 23rd Psalm is the word “MY” as it is found in the first verse. “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.”
It emphasises the importance of having a personal intimate knowledge of God, this is the most important fact in life especially when it comes to facing the possibility of death.
Little phrases and words from God`s scriptures are of great comfort to the families and friends, of loved ones facing death or serious illness, like the family of Willie Frazer at this present time, when the shadow of the valley of death hovers near.
It is well known that Willie Frazer is a true believer and is known to the Good Sheperd.
1 ¶ « A Psalm of David. » The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
