For what can war but endless war still breed?

FRIDAY MORNING MANNA  

 Biblical Numerology: NUMBER FIVE Part VI

 ‘For what can war but endless war still breed?’

JOHN MILTON, Sonnets: To Lord Fairfax

 

THE NEW TESTAMENT SAYS:

      “Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desires for pleasure that war in your members? You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war.  Yet you do not have because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures. Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. James 4: 1-4, N.K.J.V. Read 1 John 2: 15-17 also!

What a time to be alive today being a part and participants in what the ancient prophets were mere vicarious participants and spectators of in visions of earth’s frenzied activities in the last days! Read more

Strong men believe in cause and effect.

Most, if not all Catholics as well as other mainstream Christians will abstain from eating meat, but not fish, today, Good Friday of the Lenten Season.  If you still eat fish at this time of earth’s polluted history, check on the internet “Top 12 Contaminated Fish You Shouldn’t Be Eating.”www.manukafeed.com./contaminated-fish/?utm_source=yahoo8utm-campaign=yahoo-fish-us&utm-medium=cpc&utm_content=fishl. (Note: there are cookies on this site)

The Bible clearly distinguishes unclean and clean animals for eating purposes, including fish; the clean have fins and scales. All other sea and fresh water creatures are unclean, that is, according to the Creator’s love and wisdom, not man’s reasoning. See Leviticus 11: 1-47, etc. This divine classification was not only given to and for the Israelites but in the time of Noah!  See Gen. 6: 6: 17-22; 7: 1-24. Read more

Additions were made to their number, until there were assembled five thousand men besides women and children . .   Read more

St. Columba of Ireland was a Sabbath-keeper

 

QUOTE OF THE WEEK:

When religion is good, it will take care of itself; when it is not able to take care of itself, and God does not see fit to take care of it, so that it has to appeal to the civil power for support, it is evidence to my mind that its cause is a bad one.” –

          ‘Having continues his labors in Scotland thirty-four years, he clearly and openly foretold his death, and on Saturday, the ninth of June, said to his disciple Diermit: ‘This day is called the Sabbath, that is, the rest day, and such will it truly be to me; for it will put an end to my labors.’ —‘Butler’s Lives of the Saints,’ Vol. I, A.D. 597, art. ‘St. Columba,’ p. 762.
