"I beg to differ.  It's all there.  Sometimes in code and sometimes in plain sight.  Check out Revelations 12 and then google Sept. 23/Revelations 12.  You'll love it.   The Late Great Planet Earth was the…"

"I do like that story but ending up in prison is pretty common for God's prophets.  Unfortunately for some like John the Baptist it doesn't end there."

"Couple things about that story in Kings: Differing political loyalties divide the two prophets involved. They are not apolitical; they are fully human beings with a strong disagreement between them. The prophet who tells his opponent that (contrary…"

"Jay: Knowing the prophet and his history helps.  The problem is the gift or call can rest on anyone.  The Old Testament Prophets, even Jesus himself, were not pleasing to the natural eye.  They were not big on dressing in the latest…"

My devotional reading today was from John’s gospel.  Chapter four starts with Jesus meeting a woman at a well in a town in Samaria.  I actually read the notes in my study Bible this time.  They led me to this history of how the Jews came to disrespect Samaritans:
