September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”
September 20, 2017, 04:32:32 am Christian40 says: "The most popular Hepatitis B vaccine is nothing short of a witch’s brew including aluminum, formaldehyde, yeast, amino acids, and soy. Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

September 11, 2017, 06:59:33 am Psalm 51:17 says: The law of reaping and sowing. It's amazing how God's mercy and longsuffering has hovered over America so long. (ie, the infrastructure is very bad here b/c for many years, they were grossly underspent on. 1st Tim 6:10, the god of materialism has its roots firmly in the West) And remember once upon a time ago when shacking up b/w straight couples drew shock awe?

Exodus 20:5  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

Archaeologists Discover Jonah-Era Wall



Israel Antiquities Authority archaeologists uncovered three-feet wide foundation walls dating to the First Temple period in the late 8th and early 7th centuries BC, when the prophet Jonah lived.

The team uncovered the massive walls during a construction excavation, a prerequisite to building under Israeli law to preserve Israel's national antiquities.

Archaeologists discovered the wall at Givat Yonah (Jonah's hill) in the coastal city of Ashdod, which some scholars believe could be the burial place of the prophet, who lived during the 8th century.

IAA archaeologist Dmitri Egorov, director of the excavation, said the walls were probably at the base of a large building, some type of stronghold or fortress.

An nearby excavation in the 1960s, led by Department of Antiquities archaeologist Magen Broshi prior to construction of the Ashdod lighthouse, uncovered similar walls dating to the First Temple and Persian periods.

IAA Ashkelon District archaeologist Sa'ar Ganor described Givat Yonah as the "highest hill" in Ashdod.

"Due to its strategic location, it is not surprising to find there remains of a fortress that overlooked the region in the First Temple period," Ganor said.

"There are two possibilities regarding who inhabited the fortress at that time: one possibility is that it was controlled by the Assyrians who were the regional rulers in the Iron Agem," he said.

"Another possibility is that Josiah, king of Judah, occupied the fort at the time, who we know conquered territory from the Assyrians and controlled Ashdod-Yam in the seventh century BCE," he said.

Finds from the 1960 excavation and the recent one verify that people lived in the area during Jonah's time.
