From Gary... Beyond the pineapple

This is a picture of the flower of a pineapple plant.  Its symmetry and delicate beauty are a wonder to behold. Some may look at this and say:"big deal" or "so what", but others will look and marvel!!!  That's the way people are- some get it and some never will!!!  But the words of that great teacher Solomon echo the following...

Genesis, Chapter 1
31  God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. 

and Solomon said...

Ecclesiastes, Chapter 3

 9  What profit has he who works in that in which he labors?  10 I have seen the burden which God has given to the sons of men to be afflicted with.  11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in their hearts, yet so that man can’t find out the work that God has done from the beginning even to the end.  12 I know that there is nothing better for them than to rejoice, and to do good as long as they live.  13 Also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy good in all his labor, is the gift of God.  14 I know that whatever God does, it shall be forever. Nothing can be added to it, nor anything taken from it; and God has done it, that men should fear before him.  15 That which is has been long ago, and that which is to be has been long ago: and God seeks again that which is passed away. 

Spirituality is innate,  but it can be nurtured!!!  Before that can occur, you have to WANT to think and feel in Spiritual way.  I was blessed with circumstances so severe in my childhood, that I was almost forced to reflect on my situation or fall apart completely.  I wonder, what will it take for you to consider things other than just survival or the mundane operations of daily existence?  Look at flowers as they bud- you may never see one again.  Consider a sunset- it is fleeting. Think about the future AFTER this life and consider God before it is too late.  Beauty has a deeper significance than just its mere beauty- it is a reflection of something else and that something is DIVINE. Consider that little pineapple flower one more time- are you wondering yet?????

From Jim McGuiggan... WHO ARE WE? WHO AM I?

WHO ARE WE? WHO AM I?

Exodus 24:1-11 tells us of the confirmation of the covenant God made with Israel. 


Moses returns from God with the concrete applications of the Decalogue and the people give their covenanted word: "Everything the Lord has said we will do" (24:3). They weren't promising to be sinless, they were offering heartfelt covenant loyalty, which, while it would fall short of sinlessness, would always be a genuine effort to please and honour Yahweh. That's what they promised but they didn't give it. Moses committed the laws to writing, either personally or by the hand of someone else (24:4).


Next morning he built an altar, which signified the presence of and access to Yahweh through sacrifice, and he set up twelve stone pillars that spoke of the tribes of Israel who covenanted themselves to Yahweh (24:4). Since the special priesthood had not yet been set up, young men were appointed to offer the sacrifices as peace offerings (24:5). Half of the blood Moses dashed against the altar which related the covenant toward God, who graciously received it as atoning blood; but it was also a token that he was bringing himself under the vow of covenantal loyalty (see Genesis 15:9-18 with Jeremiah 34:18). Moses reads all the words of the Law and formally declares the words of covenant enactment as he scatters the rest of the blood on the people (see Heb 9:19-20). To this covenant the people formally commit themselves.


In fulfillment of the instructions in vv. 1-2 Moses, Aaron, his two sons and seventy elders of Israel climb the mountain.


It's hardly surprising that 24:11 tells us, "But God did not raise his hand against these leaders of the Israelites" since he had invited them there to meet him. Still, this was the Lord who buried Egypt; this was the Lord who dwelled up a mountain in the midst of quaking, fire, smoke and deafening trumpet sounds; this was the God whose voice melted their spines and who threatened with death any man or animal that so much as touched the mountain (19:16-24). Would it surprise us if they had gone up with smiles on their faces? The only God they knew had (so to speak) hidden grace behind judgment.


This time they were seeing a different face of God. They went up the mountain and into his presence and, wonder of wonders, he didn't kill them. In fact, they ate in his presence (24:11).


The meal may have been part of the covenant enactment or it may have been a meal that celebrated the fact that the nation was already in covenant relationship with Yahweh (cf. Genesis 31:54; Exodus 18:12). One thing's sure, they were up the mountain at God's invitation so they knew they were doing right and they saw another side of God. He isn't forever judging or condemning. God wishes us well! If judgment falls, it must be a severe mercy and although he may not satisfy us with a long list of reasons for the severity of his judgment, we are assured by his record on our behalf that he doesn't afflict without cause.


Once when Ezekiel was aghast at what God was doing to the people he protested against the severity of the judgment. God tells him to hold his peace while he showed him what they were doing (Ezekiel 8—11, esp. 11:13). Later, he repeats that he will judge them severely but assures the tormented prophet (14:22-23), "They will come to you, and when you see their conduct and their actions, you will be consoled regarding the disaster I have brought upon Jerusalem every disaster I have brought upon it. You will be consoled when you see their conduct and their actions, for you will know that I have done nothing in it without cause, declares the Sovereign Lord."


But here in Exodus 24 they see another side of God. They see a God who seeks peace with the offenders, a God who seeks friendship and fellowship with sinners. The glory of what they did see was all they could take (and all God was willing to give) but it was enough to underscore the fact that not only did they not die, they feasted in the presence of the awesome Lord. Seeing God this way enabled them to see his judgments in a new light—they were a means to an end.


They had a chance to see each other in a new and fresh way. A few days ago they were just seventy more men, all with ordinary names, having grown up together, learned their alphabet and sums together, played together, got married and lived in one another's daily sight. All that would tend to make them "good ole Jacob" to one another. But today, as they looked around at each other, they saw someone who had been invited by the sovereign Lord to eat with him. The White House? Ten Downing Street? The Kremlin? No, this was an invitation into the presence of Yahweh. Had they the eyes to see, their fellow-feasters would never be the same. A long look at each other in this setting of privilege and blessing and glory could make a profound and lifelong difference to how they would view each other. They didn't cease to be humans with all the failings that attach to humans but God who knew each of them better than he knew himself invested them with dignity and worth. In our stupidity and moral weakness we might do it, but when people have been called into God's presence we can no longer look at them as if they hadn't been.


And they had a chance to see themselves in fresh light. There's the need for balance in how we view ourselves as well as others. It's possible, of course, to think too highly of ourselves but on reflection, the sensitive people I know find it hard to think well of themselves. It wouldn't surprise me if the seventy men who climbed that mountain to meet Yahweh were thinking about their shortcomings. What they needed to think of also was the fact that he who knew them better than they knew themselves and who saw their shortcomings more clearly than they—that one was the one who had invited them in friendship into his awesome presence. Later, as the days became weeks and the weeks months and the months years they had the chance to think of that wonderful day when God's invitation came for them to eat in his presence. (And Christians can relate all that to the Christ of the cross and resurrection.)


For sensitive Christians who tend to dwell too much on their guilt there is a difficult but needed lesson to learn. If the one who needs the cup of cold water for thirst, the warm clothes for a naked body, the word of forgiveness for sins committed if that one happens to be yourself, you must not withhold these things. You are no more your own Lord than you are mine. Whoever needs the kindness and the arm around the shoulder should be given it even if it's yourself. Do take heed to GK Chesterton's poem that asks for new eyes to see himself as he should: 

SUNDER ME FROM MY BONES, O SWORD OF GOD 

TILL THEY STAND STARK AND STRANGE AS DO THE TREES 
THAT I WHOSE HEART GOES UP WITH THE SOARING WOODS 
MAY MARVEL AS MUCH AT THESE. 

SUNDER ME FROM MY BLOOD THAT IN THE DARK

I HEAR THAT ANCESTRAL RIVER RUN 
LIKE BRANCHING BURIED FLOODS THAT FIND THE SEA 
BUT NEVER SEE THE SUN. 

GIVE ME MIRACULOUS EYES TO SEE MY EYES

THOSE ROLLING MIRRORS MADE ALIVE IN ME 
TERRIBLE CRYSTALS MORE INCREDIBLE 
THAN ALL THE THINGS THEY SEE.   

   SUNDER ME FROM MY SOUL, THAT I MAY SEE 

THE SINS LIKE STREAMIING WOUNDS, THE LIFE’S BRAVE BEAT 
TILL I SHALL SAVE MYSELF AS I WOULD SAVE 
   A STRANGER IN THE STREET.



But there were seventy of them up that mountain at dinner with God (24:9) and that means they represented the entire people (see Ezekiel 8:11, Matthew 18:21-22 and note that 7 and 10 and their multiples speaks of completeness and wholeness.) What God was extending to this representative group, he was extending to the entire nation. What God extended to Israel he was extending to all the nations. What he has offered to disciples of Jesus the Messiah, he offers to all people everywhere. And that's good news. 


Can such people live just any way they want? Should they?

From Mark Copeland... The Mystery Of The Resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:50-53)

"THE FIRST EPISTLE TO THE CORINTHIANS"
The Mystery Of The Resurrection (15:50-53)
INTRODUCTION 1. In his epistle to the Corinthians, Paul argued strongly for the resurrection of the dead... a. He wondered how some could say there is no resurrection of the dead - 1Co 15:12 b. Indeed, if there is no resurrection, then even Christ is not risen! - 1Co 15:13 2. Paul proceeded to reveal much about the resurrection of the dead... a. When and how it would happen b. What kind of resurrected body there would be 3. Toward the end of his discourse on the resurrection (1Co 15:50-53), he called it a "mystery"... a. Not that it was hidden or unintelligible b. But that what was revealed was previously unknown
   c. Which is how the term "mystery" is often used in the NT - cf. 
      Ro 16:25-26; Ep 3:3-4

[What is "The Mystery Of The Resurrection"?  What has been revealed by
Christ and His apostles about the resurrection, though it may have been
hidden in times past?  They certainly asserted...]

I. THE FACT OF THE RESURRECTION

   A. JESUS TAUGHT THERE WILL BE A RESURRECTION...
      1. In which both those good and evil will come forth from the
         grave - Jn 5:28-29
      2. Jesus promised that those who believe in Him will be raised
         - Jn 6:39-40,44,54

   B. HIS APOSTLES PROCLAIMED A RESURRECTION...
      1. Peter and John "preached in Jesus the resurrection from the
         dead" - Ac 4:1-2
      2. Paul confessed his hope in the resurrection - Ac 23:6; 24:15
      3. Paul asserted the necessity of the resurrection - 1Co 15:12-23
      4. He taught the doctrine of the resurrection as a source of
         comfort - 1Th 4:16-18

[While there was a hope for the resurrection among the Jews (cf. Ac 23:8), 
that hope was made stronger by the teaching of Christ and His
apostles.  They also made clear...]

II. THE AGENT OF THE RESURRECTION

   A. JESUS ATTRIBUTED IT TO "THE POWER OF GOD"...
      1. As He reminded the Sadducees, who denied the resurrection - Mt 22:29
      2. For of course, "with God nothing will be impossible" - cf. Lk 1:37

   B. PAUL ALSO EMPHASIZED "THE POWER OF GOD"...
      1. The same power that raised Jesus from the dead - 1Co 6:14
      2. He who raised Jesus from the dead can certainly raise us up
         - 2Co 4:14

[It may be difficult for us to comprehend how the dead can be raised,
but it is not difficult for God to do it (unless your God is too
small!).  Also taught by Christ and his apostles is...]

III. THE UNIVERSALITY OF THE RESURRECTION

   A. AS TAUGHT BY JESUS...
      1. "All who are in the graves will...come forth" - Jn 5:28-29
      2. Both "those who have done good" and "those who have done evil"
         - ibid.
         a. One to experience "a resurrection of life"
         b. The other "a resurrection of condemnation"

   B. PAUL TAUGHT ALL WOULD BE RAISED...
      1. "both of the just and the unjust" - Ac 24:15
      2. "for as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made
         alive" - 1Co 15:21-22

[The fact, agent, and universality of the resurrection had been taught
in some measure by prophets of God prior to Christ and His apostles (cf.
Job 19:25-26; Dan 12:1-3).  But what had been a mystery and now more
clearly revealed included...]

IV. THE TIME OF THE RESURRECTION

   A. AT THE LAST DAY, WHEN THE LORD COMES AGAIN...
      1. Jesus spoke again and again of raising the dead at "the last
         day" - Jn 6:39-40,44,54
      2. Paul wrote of it occurring when Jesus comes again, to deliver
         the kingdom to the Father, having destroyed the last enemy,
         death itself - 1Co 15:22-26
      3. He later says that it will occur at "the last trumpet" - 1Co 15:52

   B. WHAT ABOUT THE DOCTRINE OF SEPARATE RESURRECTIONS...?
      1. Premillennialists (and perhaps others) teach there will be more
         than just one resurrection
         a. All premillennialists teach at least two resurrections:
            1) The resurrection of believers at the beginning of the
               millennium
            2) The resurrection of unbelievers at the end of the
               millennium
         b. Dispensational premillennialists add two more:
            1) The resurrection of tribulation saints at the end of the
               seven-year tribulation
            2) The resurrection of millennial saints at the end of the
               millennium
      2. Yet the doctrine of several resurrections is found wanting for
         several reasons
         a. The Bible presents the resurrection of believers and
            unbelievers as occurring together - Dan 12:2; Jn 5:28-29;
            Ac 24:14-15; Re 20:11-15
         b. The Bible teaches that believers will be raised at "the last
            day", not several times (and therefore several days, years,
            or a millennium) before the last day! - Jn 6:39-40,44,54
         c. Passages offered in support of several resurrections do not
            necessarily teach what premillennialists say they do
            1) E.g., 1Th 4:13-16 concerns itself with the resurrection
               of the righteous, but that does not demand that the
               wicked are not being raised at the same time
            2) E.g., Re 20:4-6 describes a resurrection of souls, not
               bodies, and the reigning with Christ is likely occurring
               in heaven, not on earth - cf. Re 2:26-27; 3:21

[Finally, what was truly a mystery concerning the resurrection but made
clearer by Paul in our text is...]

V. THE BODY OF THE RESURRECTION

   A. OUR BODY, GLORIOUSLY CHANGED AND DIFFERENT...!
      1. Our physical body will serve as the "kernel" from which comes
         an incorruptible and immortal body in which to house the soul
         - 1Co 15:35-37
      2. Our physical body...
         a. Sown in corruption, raised in incorruption! - 1Co 15:42
         b. Sown in dishonor, raised in glory! - 1Co 15:43a
         c. Sown in weakness, raised in power! - 1Co 15:43b
         d. Sown as a natural body, raised as a spiritual body! - 1Co 15:44-49
      3. Those alive at Christ's coming will undergo this change
         instantly
         a. For flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God - 1Co 15:50
         b. So a change will take place in one instantaneous moment
            - 1Co 15:51-52
         c. In which that which is corruptible and mortal will put on
            incorruption and immortality - 1Co 15:53-54

   B. OUR BODY, GLORIOUSLY TRANSFORMED AND CONFORMED...!
      1. That which is lowly (the body) will be transformed - Php 3:20-21
      2. It (the body) will be conformed to His glorious body (His
         resurrected body) - ibid.
      3. How is possible?
         a. "according to the working by which He is able even to subdue
            all things to Himself"
         b. In other words, by the power of God! - cf. Mt 22:29

CONCLUSION

1. There is probably much more about the resurrection that we would like
   to know...

2. But enough of "The Mystery Of The Resurrection" has been revealed...
   a. To take away the sting of death, and the victory of Hades
   b. To give us a victorious hope for the future
   c. To motivate us to serve the Lord until He comes at the last day

   "'O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?'
   The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law.
   But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord
   Jesus Christ." - 1Co 15:55-57

   "Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always
   abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not
   in vain in the Lord." - 1Co 15:58

Are you making it your aim to be ready for the glorious resurrection to
come...?

The Composite Bible
The World English Bible
Darby's Translation
Young's Literal Translation

The Composite Bible is a effort to understand the Bible by considering it from different perspectives and different levels of literalcy. First, read the World English Bible (the least literal-black text) for comprehension of the text. Next, read both the World English Bible with the Darby Translation (more literal-blue text)to make comparisons and lastly, read all three versions (Young's is the most literal translation- red text) at one time to obtain an overview of the text. Doing this will make you think about what the Scriptures are actually saying and avoid reading in a superficial manner.
