Do not judge and you will not be judged.
Forgive and you will be forgiven.
Give and it will be given to you.

Kind words

Welcome to my blog, if you happen to read this post, may the Lord bless you richly and draw you closer to Him.
Today this was my short message: if somebody comes to you in the street and say something nasty to you, what should you do? 
Four types of answers come to mind,
1 - say something equally nasty to them,
2 - tell them to go away,
3 - walk away
4- take refuge in a shop or speak to a policeman
We won't go down the line of saying that one should punch or give a beating!
If I would suggest that you could say something nice instead, would you be surprised. It says in the Bible that 'Pleasant words are [as] a honeycomb, Sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.' Proverbs 16:24  Are you surprised ? then think about the qualities of honey. This is such a lovely picture. 
Let's consider the sacrificial love, the love that conquers all.
More to come. 
Have a blessed evening my friends. In the name of Jesus our saviour and redeemer.

The Ophel inscription: 10th century B.C.

A few characters on the side of a 3,000-year-old earthenware jug dating back to the time of King David have stumped archaeologists until now -- and a fresh translation may have profound ramifications for our understanding of the Bible.
Experts had suspected the fragmentary inscription was written in the language of the Canaanites, a biblical people who lived in the present-day Israel. Not so, says one expert who claims to have cracked the code: The mysterious language is actually the oldest form of written Hebrew, placing the ancient Israelites in Jerusalem earlier than previously believed.
"Hebrew speakers were controlling Jerusalem in the 10th century, which biblical chronology points to as the time of David and Solomon," ancient Near Eastern history and biblical studies expert Douglas Petrovich told
"Whoever they were, they were writing in Hebrew like they owned the place," he said.
"It is just the climate among scholars that they want to attribute as little as possible to the ancient Israelites."
- Doug Petrovich
First discovered near the Temple Mount in Jerusalem last year, the 10th century B.C. fragment has been labeled the Ophel Inscription. It likely bears the name of the jug's owners and its contents.
If Petrovich's analysis proves true, it would be evidence of the accuracy of Old Testament tales. If Hebrew as a written language existed in the 10th century, as he says, the ancient Israelites were recording their history in real time as opposed to writing it down several hundred years later. That would make the Old Testament an historical account of real-life events.
According to Petrovich, archaeologists are unwilling to call it Hebrew to avoid conflict.
"It's just the climate among scholars that they want to attribute as little as possible to the ancient Israelites," he said.

Prayer for broken hearts


Prayer for broken hearts.
Heavenly Father, we pray for all those whose hearts are broken today. You know the reason for their pain, their circumstances and we ask that you would be near them and wipe their tears. Draw them closer to you, bring them comfort and peace, strengthen them in these difficult times.
In Jesus' name, amen.
