February 07, 2016, 04:07:44 pm 1st Peter 2:11-12 says: Psalm 41:1  To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble.
Psa 41:2  The LORD will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies.


Psalm 48:9  We have thought of thy lovingkindness, O God, in the midst of thy temple.
Psa 48:10  According to thy name, O God, so is thy praise unto the ends of the earth: thy right hand is full of righteousness.

February 01, 2016, 10:19:47 am 1st Peter 2:11-12 says: In every Christianís heart there is a cross and a throne, and the Christian is on the throne till he puts himself on the cross; if he refuses the cross he remains on the throne. Perhaps this is at the bottom of the backsliding and worldliness among gospel believers today. We want to be saved but we insist that Christ do all the dying. No cross for us, no dethronement, no dying. We remain king within the little kingdom of Mansoul and wear our tinsel crown with all the pride of a Caesar; but we doom ourselves to shadows and weakness and spiritual sterility. ‪#‎Tozer‬-The Radical Cross
February 01, 2016, 10:17:25 am 1st Peter 2:11-12 says: To find our way out of the shadows and into the cheerful sunlight we need only to know that there are two kinds of love: the love of feeling and the love of willing. The one lies in the emotions, the other in the will. Over the one we may have little control. It comes and goes, rises and falls, flares up and disappears as it chooses, and changes from hot to warm to cool and back to warm again very much as does the weather. Such love was not in the mind of Christ when He told His people to love God and each other. As well command a butterfly to light on our shoulder as to attempt to command this whimsical kind of affection to visit our hearts.

The love the Bible enjoins is not the love of feeling; it is the love of willing, the willed tendency of the heart. (For these two happy phrases I am indebted to another, a master of the inner life whose pen was only a short time ago stilled by death.)

January 25, 2016, 09:17:36 pm 1st Peter 2:11-12 says: 1 Peter 2:11  Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;
1Pe 2:12  Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.

January 21, 2016, 09:32:35 pm Christian40 says: Romans 12:16 Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.
January 08, 2016, 09:31:28 pm 1st Peter 2:11-12 says: 1 Thes 3:12  And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we do toward you:
1Th 3:13  To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.

Mar 9:43  And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
Mar 9:44  Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

So-called "worms from hell" have been unearthed, and they have raised the possibility of extraterrestrial life. Is ET in these crazy, long organisms? They were found deep below the surface of the Earth, and now they have scientists thinking about the possibilities of this type of life form elsewhere.

The reason for the name "worms from hell" is because these creatures lived more than a mile below the Earth's surface, which must be fairly close to Hell at least by some estimations. They are actually called nematodes, or roundworms, and they were found in South African gold mines.

Tullis Onstott, lead researcher on the project, said, "This is telling us something brand new. For a relatively complex creature like a nematode to penetrate that deep is simply remarkable." The worms have nervous, digestive, and reproductive systems, which is what makes them complex.

Before this dramatic discovery, many researchers believed that such lifeforms could not live in an environment like that found so far under the Earth. Could this discovery mean that there is life on Mars or the Moon or on other planets throughout the Solar System? It certainly opens up the possibility, which is pretty amazing.

Of course, the name "worms from hell" may need a little work, but there is time for that. For now, science gets to imagine the possibilities of this extraordinary discovery, and that is what it is all about.

I imagined God removing arms and legs of those cast into the lake of fire; a human without limbs would look like a worm.
And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off; would it be a stretch to think God would cut off arms and legs?

"The giant Gippsland earthworm, Megascolides australis, is one of Australia's 1,000 native earthworm species. These Giant earthworms average 100 cm long and 2 cm in diameter and can reach 3 m in length. They have a dark purple head and a blue-grey body.

They live in the subsoil of blue, grey or red clay soils along stream banks and some south or west facing hills of their remaining habitat which is in Gippsland in Victoria, Australia.

These worms live in deep burrow systems and require water in their environment to respire. These worms rarely leave their moist burrows. They have relatively long life spans for invertebrates and can take 5 years to reach maturity. They breed in the warmer months and produce large egg cocoons which are laid in their burrows. When these worms hatch in 12 months they are already 20 cm long.

They can sometimes be heard in their habitat making gurgling sounds as they move underground.

Located near the town of Bass is the Giant Earthworm Museum. This building allows tourists to crawl through a magnified replica of a worm burrow and a simulated worm's stomach. Displays and educational material on the Giant Gippsland earthworm and other natural history of Gippsland are featured.

As with many of Australiaís native species, European colonisation has resulted in the decline of the Giant Gippsland earthworm and they are now a protected species. Some farmers in the area have stopped raising cattle and have begun planting crops. When the farmers till the ground many of the worms are severed, and some scientists believe that worms are killed as a result of the tilling. Thus, the giant earthworm is in danger of becoming extinct."

"I was looking through google trends today and noticed that their was a lot of buzz on the internet over Giant South African Earthworms. What so special about Giant South African Earthworms?

The Microchaetus rappi more commonly know as the Giant South African Earthworm can grow to over 20 feet long! In 1967 a world record setting specimen 22 feet long was found beside a road in Williamís Town, South Africa.

Although I wasnít able to find any pictures of this 22 foot monster. I did find this smaller version above."

Gen 3:14  And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
Mat_13:38  ... but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
1Jn_3:10  In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil:
