It will be a unique day--a day known only to the LORD--with no distinction between day and night. When evening comes, there will be light.

You may want to consider that season can be interpreted as feast of God...ie. you can determine what is to take place per the convocation of the Feasts of Jehovah. If people are under a strong delusion, which is an end time sign, they will not understand the Feasts... the information which Jehovah has appointed. You may also want to study the Menorah and ...

Horses represent warfighting strength; oxen represent productivity strength. God's Word is a deep ocean and seldom does a Proverb have one simple application. While they speak of earthly affairs, they also speak of spiritual affairs. We benefit from understanding them either way (or both ways). Oxen are submissive animals used for their great physical ...

thanks for the many answers. In the end, I found a small Bible store on my trip and gave a few of them a quick read, and went with the "Elberfelder" (2006) translation because it was in the exact size format (travel size, 5 inches x 4 inches) I was looking for, and it seemed to not have any obvious translation problems. I had not heard of this version, so I ...

Same reason we don't believe Jesus is literally a lamb, a lion, a piece of bread, a door, a vine, etc... These are all word ...

I don't think we can determine the truth about one of Voltaire's houses being used to print Bibles, only what sort of website considers it a fact. Here is a reference that quotes wiki and explains that there was a second house -- actually in Geneva. Feel free to believe or disbelieve this version, as you prefer, since this site doesn't have any references. ...

This is a partial answer, and I don't speak with authority on these matters. There is an difficulty in condemning homosexuality and a truth.
