Harvest, a place for people to meet God

Posted in Blogroll on August 18, 2008 by activeinspiration

Saturday Night at the Harvest was great!  I haven’t seen it that packed out in several years.  What I am referring to is the Harvest with Greg Laurie, if you didn’t know.  This is where we So. Cal. Christians take over the Angel Stadium and bring a whole bunch of people searching for meaning in their lives and introduce them to God. 

They have a great lineup of Christian Music Artists who perform their latest hits and share what God is doing in there lives and just celebrate Jesus, the Lamb of God, who came and took away all or our sins if we just believe in Him.   Then Pastor Greg shares a message from the Bible and invites those who desire to meet God to come down to the playing field and receive Jesus as their Savor and they are given a Bible and prayer for there needs and salvation.

So we just party and celebrate not only our own salvation, but all who come to meet our Savior Jesus the Christ.  Its a time when this huge number of Christians can come together and just celebrate the Love that God loves us with, with each other.  If you haven’t been to Harvest before, or if you aren’t a Christian and you don’t know Jesus, and you would like to see thousands of people loving each other with care and respect.  Loving each other with that same Love that God Loves each one of us with well, I suggest you check this out.  You won’t leave the same as when you came.

The impact that this experience has on the believer and nonbeliever is something that you won’t forget very soon if ever.  It is just amazing to see so many human beings in one place with a common purpose and reason for being there.  There are elderly, babies, middle aged, teens, youth, college age, every race, color, size, shape, with tats, no tats, long hair, no hair, and every hair in between. a full representation of humanity.  All believing in God and His Son Jesus the Christ. 

You can go to http://www.harvest.org and find the town nearest you in which Harvest will be coming to, and go and see for your self.  I promise you that if you go with honesty, sincerely intending to see this phenomenon for yourself, you will be impressed.  It is a good way to see the proof that God does really exist.  You can’t argue with these huge numbers of people who are convinced by relationship with the Creator that God truly exists.

Three 9,000-Year-Old Skulls Found in Galilee – Inside Israel – Israel News – Arutz Sheva

Posted in Blogroll on August 13, 2008 by activeinspiration

moz-screenshot  There are so many variables in understanding this article, the only thing for sure is that they found three skulls.  What about the possibilities of all the information in this article being correct?  I mean after all we are talking 9000 years ago, some information here could be considered at least speculation or opinion, depending on your personal beliefs.

Take for example the time frame, I understand that some of the best scientific considerations have been made and that this finding is based on that.  For me, it even fits with the time frame that I can except, but, is it accurate and could it be fabricated to argue a position or belief?  Would a room full of archaeologists concur?  From a biblical time frame how dose this fit in, or dose it?

Then the whole thing about how the skulls were used in the household, is this spring boarding off another’s assertions?  Could there be another explanation, or interpretation on how these skulls were used?  I’m sure there is other evidence that would indicate this possibility of use, but is this the only possibility.  I understand some of the considerations, for example what the Bible says about this area some 9000 years ago.    Yes I have lots of questions.

Now for me, and I need to say I am not that knowledgeable in archeology, not really even to state anything as fact on this subject but, as a reader I am entitled to form my own opinions on what I read and see.  I would think that these skulls might of been kept and the plaster substance applied to them to capture the individuals likeness as sort of a keepsake or maybe a 9000 year old photo kind of thing.  Again of the civilization that probably occupied this region at this time it is said they were quite wicked, even I have heard they worshiped murder.  Or maybe their enemies dug up their ancestors graves and used the skulls as a trophy or a form of harassment toward their enemies.   

I understand the rich and awesome history of the Jewish people in this region and their devotion to God.  I also understand that everyone worships someone or something whether they will admit it or not, but to worship the dead, or their ancestors or murder?  I would have to believe this surely predates Abraham’s migration to this region.  Maybe If God treated these people like He did Nineveh, having the same chance to repent and they didn’t.  Well God sure demonstrated His patients in dealing with a wicked people.

Did God Create other worlds on this planet before the current creation that exists?  Well to say that in my opinion is to deny Scripture or to say Moses is wrong.  I would refer you to the first chapter of Genesis in the Word of God, the Bible and beyond in continuing chapters as God has communicated quit thoroughly His intention with this present creation, or if you will, world:

Gen 1:1  In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Gen 1:2  The earth was unformed and void, darkness was on the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God hovered over the surface of the water.
Gen 1:3  Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light.
Gen 1:4  God saw that the light was good, and God divided the light from the darkness.
Gen 1:5  God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. So there was evening, and there was morning, one day.
Gen 1:6  God said, "Let there be a dome in the middle of the water; let it divide the water from the water."
Gen 1:7  God made the dome and divided the water under the dome from the water above the dome; that is how it was,
Gen 1:8  and God called the dome Sky. So there was evening, and there was morning, a second day.
Gen 1:9  God said, "Let the water under the sky be gathered together into one place, and let dry land appear," and that is how it was.  (The Complete Jewish Bible translation)
