1768 Parchment

Here is a photo of a parchment from 1768. It was produced by Jekuthiel Sofer, a prolific Jewish scribe in Amsterdam of the 18th century. The photo depicts what is called the "Decalogue". The "Decalogue" is a name meaning "10" to refer to the ten commandments found in the Torah(for Jewish people) or Old Testament(for Christians).




The ten commandments are found two places in the these early writings, Exodus and Deuteronomy. The First Commandment reads: Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Exodus chapter 20 verse 3 or "Thou shalt have none other gods before me." Deuteronomy chapter 5 verse 7.

If I say in my heart that I have found god within myself independent of God I have created a god in my own image and have broken the first commandment. I have lifted myself up in the place of the God who created the heavens and the earth as well as all of the people, animals and plants.

When I have broken one or more of the 10 commandments of Almighty God I show my need for a savior to pay the price for my sin or sins.

According to Christian tradition, sins were covered in two ways. Prior to the birth of the Messiah, Jesus Christ sins were covered mostly by sacrifices of animals. Blood, being the source of life of the animal was used as the means of payment.

After the birth of Christ and his death and subsequent resurrection from the dead, his blood was the price of the payment for the sins of mankind. God provided a free gift to all men, women and children of all nations of the world. This is the good news of the Gospel.

"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Romans chapter 10 verse 13

History's Greatest Valentine



History’s greatest love story
Wasn’t between woman and man
But God for humanity
In fulfilling an ancient plan.

Jesus, our God, surrendering royal Deity
To become the Holy Lamb,
Sought a bride yet unworthy
And graciously outstretched His hands.

Christ’s blood was love and mercy
Cleansing this sinner damned.
Her dirty veil traded for crown of gold and rubies,
She freely lays it where He stands,
Thankful for eternal liberty
Bought by the Son of Man.

There’s never been a Valentine as lovely
In any time or land,
Than when My Savior so tenderly, so sweetly,
Took me by His nail-scarred hand
To forgive and set me free,
Then told me: “Forever by My side you’ll stand.”

Happy Valentine’s Day
2010

Prince of Peace


"And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be." Rev 22:12

This nativity was a live performance by participants of the Church of God in Sequim Washington in 2008. There was even snow on the ground.

Falling Away

Recent news within organized churches of America this summer may indicate that Bible prophesy is being partly fulfilled in this day and hour. Statements made by the leader of the American Episcopal Church in July and now the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America(ELCA) the nation's largest arm of the Lutheran Church indicate a total disregard for the Bible relating to core issues of the Christian faith.

The bold statement made by the leader of the American Episcopal church at the opening of their national summer convention claiming personal salvation through Jesus Christ to be "the great Western heresy" is a prime example. This contradicts the very foundation of the New Testament which is embodied in the scripture of John 3:16. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."kjv

This denomination had previously led the nation in a direction away from the Bible regarding gays.

The Bible clearly states that gay activity along with heterosexual sexual activity outside of marriage is simply sin. This is illustrated concisely in Romans chapter 1.

Now the ELCA has joined the American Episcopal denomination in this opposing position to the Bible at their national convention in Minneapolis on August 22, 2009.

In terms of Bible prophesy, these organizations appear to be ignorant of the fact that they are helping to pave the way for the appearance of the anti-Christ and the return of Jesus Christ. The Bible states that these events will not occur until there is a general falling away from the faith taught by Jesus Christ and the apostles. This is stated in the second letter to the Thessalonians chapter two.

1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

So this "man of sin, son of perdition" will be the anti-Christ establishing himself as god in place of the God of the Bible. The anti-Christ will also establish a one world government which he will lead. This is further described in the book of Revelation chapter 13.

This one world government will emerge according to the prophecy of the book of the Bible Daniel(chapter7-9) from the revived Roman empire. The European Union appears to fit the bill for this aspect of the prophecy.

The good news is that God, his Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit will triumph over these feeble attempts to usurp his authority and reign. The book of Revelation describes the unfolding of these events.

The question for us as individuals is whether we will choose to live with the true God or face eternity in separation from God in hell with the devil and those who oppose God. The choice is ours.
