    "To divination and casting of lots, they pay attention beyond any other people. Their method of casting lots is a simple one: they cut a branch from a fruit-bearing tree and divide it into small pieces which they mark with certain distinctive signs and scatter at random onto a white cloth. Then, the priest of the community if the lots are consulted publicly, or the father of the family if it is done privately, after invoking the gods and with eyes raised to heaven, picks up three pieces, one at a time, and interprets them according to the signs previously marked upon them.

    Divination is OCCULT and carries a death sentence.

    Look at Matthew 5, and 1 Corinthians 7

    Jesus called him the son of perdition. What do you think.

    Reading the Commentary on verses is often very helpful.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Habakkuk 2
    Abel was killed. Eve had another son named Seth. It's in the genealogies; which I find interesting reading.

    As a rule, female names were not recorded unless they were involved in Jesus's story.

    Nothing wrong with that. Some may think its wrong. But a cross is not an idol unless you worship it which Im sure you don't.
  • Stanjett on Psalms 73:4
    Come on people. Most of you are commenting on other parts of the bible, not Gen. Go to those places to put in your comments.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Habakkuk 2
    Adam and Eve had more kids than Cain and Abel. They went to other parts of Eden and beyond. And these had kids also. Most likely Cain married one of these. Most likely one of his cousins. You got to remember there was hundreds of years past by this time. Also people back then they lived long lives.

    Adam was the first man. All those deformed skeletons has been proved to be fake. Like they out an ape jaw bone to a human skull.

    Judas committed suicide, where do you think he went.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Proverbs 16:25
    If you sin after you are saved, you can ask God to forgive you and He will But there's a limit to His forgiveness.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Additions to Esther 10
    You must have added wrong.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Mark 3
    Very clear to me. Do it and you will go to hell. NO repenting of that. The only unforgivable sin.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Proverbs 26
    Dogs do. They did'nt sin.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on 2 Thessalonians 2:3
    When the antichrist comes he will sit in the temple of God saying that he is God. Seems to me that he will be very well known.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Psalms 72
    Some never repent. In some churchs they shun those type people.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on 1 Timothy 2:2
    Good ? I don't know who appoints these judges. Maybe the king?
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Matthew 26
    True. And they got on to him for healing on the Sabbath day. And He replied: I am the Lord even on the Sabbath. Jesus don't take no time off from God's work. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day. Work, work, work but He don't care about rest. He got to do His Fathers work while He is here.

    Matthew 5:48

    "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect." It requires salvation from sin first.

    2 Timothy 3:17

    "That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works." This word perfect is in reference to spiritual perfection through Jesus Christ. It is not to be confused with physical perfection, which is not possible.

    Galatians 6:7

    "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap." Those that remain in sin will be judged as lost and their reward is eternity in Hell. Those that live sinless after repentance and salvation are going to Heaven. Children under the age of accountability are innocent before God our Judge and will make Heaven their home as well.

    Titus 2:11,12

    "For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,

    Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;" Salvation from sin can be obtained here on Earth in this life. Without salvation from sin, you are still lost, and have just gained religion and are not righteous before God.

    Hebrews 4:12

    "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." God sees your heart's hidden intents to hold onto sin, to be deceived and to deceive others that freedom from sin is not possible. May He have mercy on you that you should see the truth before you die lost, forever to be tormented in Hell.

    Great that you have come to the Lord at only 8. Most kids are not held accountable until they are 12.

    circumcised? Most babies now days are circumcised at birth unless the doctor is told not to.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Ecclesiastes 3:3
    If someone came to murder me for some reason, I would blow them away. And I don't think God would blame me.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 26
    As a rule, I don't comment on any Passover discussions. I believe Jesus is the Son of Man and he doesn't make mistakes. I leave it at that.

    What I commented on, is scriptures show that Jesus was recorded as healing the sick and lame on Sabbath at times, which caused anger from the Pharisees & Sadducees.

    I have no more comment on this.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Jonah 1
    Not sure but I think it goes like this: 10 sticks with only one differant color than the others, hold all in one hand with the colored stick in the middle, let go and the colored stick points to the person in a circle. He is chosen for what purpose, I dont know. for something they agreed to , I would guess.
  • Mishael - in Reply on 1 Peter 4:12
    If you will check the entire thread, you will see I did not make any comment about you, or Judy May.

    Dorothy, I'm thinking about your question...and thousands of years ago medicine was super simple. You can look up what are the humors of medicine. It's four colors of fluid that told what a person had. That's how they identified disease. So, no microscopes or labwork. If, you go back and read the Old Testament, about leprosy and how a person was to leave the camp and then be inspected by the Priest, it seems to be that medicine and faith and sin were all together. So, like barbers that cut our hair now, a hundred or so years ago, they were the dentist and did a whole multitude of services. In JOB, when he's stricken, his friends visit and ask what sins did he commit. He kept saying none. But, they said why else would he be stricken with the sufferings he did. In the New Testament, the man that was born blind, and was healed, the disciples asked who had sinned, him or his parents. Jesus said neither, he was born blind so God could be glorified. He was born blind so Jesus would be able to so his healing ability. Like that was the blind man's purpose. So, I'm suggesting, that in the Old Testament if a person was sick, it was believed they had sinned. So, they had to leave the camp for a week until they were clean again. Or, in some cases be unclean till evening, depending on what was done. The Priest was the healer by directing the different sacrifices. If, you were a non-believer you were kicked out of the temple. Which you see examples of in the New Testament. Jesus, had to teach and show a whole new way of thought. That's what is meant by new cloth and old cloth and new wine into old wine bottles. The Leviathan and Behemoth in JOB explained by God, tells how things (sickensses) happen, it's not because of sin as the Jewish Priest seem to teach. Non-believers were kicked out of camp, or killed. Like when Moses came down from Mt Sinai and the people had the golden calf and were worshipping that.

    A Pastor recently commented on the Lord's Prayer....that when we say, " Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven, " that "kingdom come" is referring to the second coming of Jesus. All my life I said that phrase, believing the "kingdom coming" in the prayer was referring to our hope that it will be so now, in our lives now. That with His help, our living will be a peaceful existence today. Of course much will happen later, but for now, we pray that our lives will be full of happiness, kindness and love.
