Its been said we will enter heaven @ the time of judgment i we are found to be worthy by God and are in the Lamb's book of Life.
But first, before that, God sets up His kingdom here on earth for 1,000 years. It states that 1 of our days equals 1,000 years to God. So, that might mean God takes 1,000 years to judge a person and make a decision.
If it takes 1,000 years for each person, then. for a person to die and to see a white light at the end of that tunnel it could mean the entrance to the Waiting Room of Judgment. Here our loved ones and friends are waiting for their turn to be judged.
After all, we need something to do while waiting. How many people have died since the world began? Gots to be over 1 billion. And 1,000 years of judgment for each of those 1 billion people [soul and/or spirit], well it would be one heck of a long wait!

"Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean" [Psalm 51:7]. Hyssop is an expectorant. It dispels from the chest that which is unclean or congesting. With thujone and phenol in its green leaves, hyssop removes all the septic, all the poison that gets stuck in our lives. They used to use hyssop on the graves of the dead.
Perhaps if hyssop pulled out the poison for the living, hyssop might pull up our loved ones who have died too. Perhaps they might be lifed up, expelled from the ground, and given one last, clear resurrecting breath. What if hyssop were used on a person just after they died, would they rise again to a new life?

While all analogies ultimately break down, there are striking parallels between Superman and the Son of God. HERE ARE 10 PARALLELS:
1. Both were only sent to earth by their heavenly Father.
2. Both had dual natures-celestial and earthly.
3. Both did not fit into society and were misunderstood by people.
4. Both were imbued with tremendous, supernatural powers.
5. Both had a strong moral code and an unselfish heroic character.
6. Both were raised with strong values by simple & upright paren ts.
7. Both were strong, masculine men.
8. Both had a sense of purpose and destiny that started to be fulfilled around age 30.
9. Both went through a period of training and maturity before they started their heroic careers.
10. Both were saviors or messianic figures-symbols o hope for the people of earth.

As a rule of thumb, when a name ends in "man." the bearer is Jewish!
Superman doesn't look Jewish. Not with that pug nose, electric blue eyes and a boyish spit curl that suggested Anglo as well as Saxon.
The superheroes of the American comic book industry were/are created by Jews. Superman's real name on earth is Clark Joseph Kent On his home planet Krypton, his was Kal-El which means strong, beautiful, merciful, and crowned one. El in the Bible means God!

1. If a kid refuses to sleep during nap time, is he guilty of resisting a rest?
2. Why doesn't McDonald's sell hot dogs?
3. What is Satan's last name?
4. Do animals commit suicide?
5. A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes.
6. If a baby's leg pops out at 11:58 pm but his head doesn't come out until 12:01, which day was he born on?
7. Do Jewish vampires avoid crosses or Stars of David?
8, If money doesn't grow on trees, why do banks have branches?

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Why is it that before 9/11 they always showed the Emergency Broadcast Syetem test, and on 9/11 they never used it????

COULD A WOMAN ENDURE A CRUCIFIXION ?
I'm not suggesting that the woman would have spikes in her wrists and ankels like Jesus did. Mainly as the above picture depicts. But...would she be stripped of all her clothing as Roman law required for the purpose of more humiliation for her crime whatever that crime might be?
Back in Biblical times, were women ever executed this way? Can you imagine what it might have been like being naked upon a cross for all to see? People looking at a guy and suddenly he urinates on them as he can't make it to the bathroom...for obvious reasons. And, having a bowel movement as well, imagine the humilation of having to do that with or without people watching. Its bound to be a stinky situation after awhile.

I came across this on the internet on an archaeology website that say they have facts to prove that Jesus was a girl and not a man. I believe its rubbish, Jesus was a man!
A team of archarologists discovered artifacts near the wall in Jerusalem's ancient city of David that proves Jesus existed but that "he" was a female. Carbon dating puts the artifacts at around 30 A.D. Zahi Mazar, head of the Institute of Biblical Archaeology at the Shlem Center in Jerusalem and the leader of the dig.
The painting [see above photo] he found depicted "Jesus with flowers in her hair, wearing a pearl necklace and a beaded anklet [ankle bracelet]."
Jesus has always been portrayed wearing a flowing gown and having long hair. The Bible forbids men to wear long hair [1 Cor. 11:14; Mark 14:51-52]. In [Mark 6:8] Jesus commanded his disciples to carry nothing in their purse. Since only women carry purses, this might suggest that the disciples were women too! It is also thought that the disciples referred to Jesus as "Christy" not as Christ, as the tradition goes because Jesus wore a purple gown at one time or another [Mark 15:17; John 14:5].
There's more but its mainly too graphic for me to mention. I believe Jesus was a man not a woman. Thought this might be interesting to note how far someone would go to discredit Jesus.

Throughout both the OT and the NT, whenever reference is made to God [or for that matter, to the Godhead] a male pronoun [He, Him, His, etc.] is employed. Why is this the case? Does God indeed possess gender comparable to that of humans? Is God male?

I'M TALKING ABOUT PGD ?
PGD means...Pre-Implanation Genetic Diagnosis.
Will any doctors use PGD even though it was never meant for this purpose? From a Christian point of view would it mean playing God? God already planned that child's life. You should be thankful God gave you what He thought would fit in with you and your mate [husband and wife].
What are your thoughts and opinions?
