Just an image I am preparing to write a paper on Psalm 2. I've read the psalm several times and have yet to nail down a thesis for my paper. I know that the psalter had the kingdom of Israel in mind when he penned the psalm. He did not have the benefit of history to read a messianic meaning into the words. We can interpret the psalm and see that in many ways it defines the birth and kingship of Jesus.

The psalter who penned the psalm, however, did not know Jesus. He obviously had a different meaning in mind. Is it possible he was thinking patriotically? Could he have been saying essentially "Israel rules!"?

I just finished a course on Biblical hermeneutics, which is Biblical interpretation. One of the first things we were taught in the class is to read the text by finding the author's original meaning or "locution" in mind. The author of the psalms may have thought that the Messiah was going to come and rule the entire earth in a 1,000-year millennial reign as is often taught but I seriously doubt this was the case. In my opinion, the author of Psalms 2 was talking about Israel and the throne of Israel. The author was expressing his patriotism and loyalty to Jehovah by telling the surrounding nations to listen up because Israel's God was going to make Israel the capital of the entire world. Essentially, I think he was serving notice and I firmly believe that He believed God would do just that. After all, God had established Israel as a nation by conquering the inhabitants of Canaan. I believe the author of Psalms 2 expected world conquest.

For my blog I lost track of my days with all the busyness of the week. I forgot to send the prompt!

A hike in the woods brings a young woman into contact with an alien race.
#2238955 by Homer J Simpson

.
What do you think it would be like to encounter an alien race?

I think it would be cool to encounter an alien race, although I feel certain that humans are alone in the universe. I know Jesus did not die on any planet but earth, and any sentient being is subject to sin. However, if I were to meet an alien I think that would be pretty cool. I have no idea what they might look like. There would be so many factors affecting that. If they were to come I doubt it would be in peace though.

Image for BCOF members to put in their blogs "Do you think artists should be more or less transparent when it comes to their political affiliation? Like for instance, the flack Garth Brooks received from his fan base because of his choice to participate in the inauguration even though he's Republican."

I think the media and artists should keep their political opinions to themselves. Facebook has made it very clear that they are politically very left. They will post a "fact-check" on any opinion that disagrees with their opinion.

I got a really late start today. I woke up at 4:00 AM this morning nauseous, shaking, and dizzy. My diabetes medication had caused my sugar to drop drastically. I spent most of the morning recuperating from that. Then I had an assignment that I had to write and they gave us all COVID-19 shots today. So I haven't had much time to do my blogging although I am fully committed to doing so each day.

Just an image Prompt: "Proverbs 13:8 says "The rich can pay a ransom for their lives, but the poor won't even be threatened."

What does this mean?"

I think this Proverb has both a literal and a spiritual application. The literal application is just as it reads. The spiritual application is that the rich will face many temptations and problems due to the love of money. Poor people avoid these traps and God has a soft spot for the poor.

What are your values and what do you believe?"

I am a Christian so my values are Christian values. I am also a soldier in the Salvation Army and as such signed a covenant between myself and the Army that I would support Christian values. I believe marriage is an institute of God and that it is between one man and one woman. I do not believe in violating the marriage covenant nor will I be found doing so. I do not believe in gay marriage simply because God does not support it. Gay marriages cannot naturally produce children and God commanded man to replenish the earth.

I believe in taking care of human beings including myself because this is what God believes in. I believe in love, freedom to choose, and equality. If you want to know my values just ask God and He will tell you. In fact, He has already told you in His word.

Just an image I was preparing a Sunday school lesson today. It posed a question that I am going to ask you and then we'll probably return to Proverbs with the next prompt. Today's question is:

What would it mean for us to be agents of God's transforming grace, going where Jesus would go, touching those Jesus would touch, and worrying less about who is clean and unclean?

Note: I know that social distancing rules still apply. This is getting out of our comfort zones.

I know that it is currently not kosher to touch anybody. This prompt though is referring to when we can. If we become willing to step outside of the boxes that we put ourselves in, we would not only find the kingdom of God growing but we would find ourselves richly blessed. All too often we are unwilling to associate with people we consider different from us. At times it is not safe to do so. However, if we take a chance we are more likely to find ourselves blessed than harmed. Instead of walking to the other side of the street to avoid the homeless person we bypass every morning how about we walk up to them and buy them a cup of coffee and a hot meal? We don't have to preach to them. All we would have to do is buy them the meal. When they ask why we are being kind to them tell them that we have been down and out and somebody helped us. Avoid religion and preaching. Just show love. The preaching will come in time. For now, we just prepare the soil.

If it isn't the homeless person let's choose another population we typically don't associate with. Find a way to touch the untouchables and in so doing spread the gospel.

Waves of Grief  (13+)
Emotional Oddquain format poem
#2159456 by 🌸 pwheeler ~ love joy peace


Let's focus on grief. What are your thoughts?"

I deal with grief and grieving people all the time. Grief is an often misunderstood emotion. Many people think that grief is something one experiences only when a loved one dies. It is not. Grief can occur at the loss of anything. It can be the loss of a job, the loss of a relationship, the loss of anything we cherish. Grief is the most natural thing in the world. There is no improper way to grieve, no limit on how long we can grieve, or no particular way we should grieve.

Image for BCOF members to put in their blogs "Prompt: If you had a choice, what would you dream about tonight?"

If I had a choice of what I was going to dream about, I would dream about heaven. Then when it became a reality for me I could realize just how far off base my concepts and preconceived notions really are.

Blog City image small "Prompt: The very act of writing, what does it feel like to you? A wandering or wondering, walking away from immediate world like the internet, etc., a meditation in loneliness, protecting your heart or mind, the comforting happy feeling of following through the thing that inspires you at the moment, the hope of being published or republished down the line or what?"

To me, writing is all of the above and more. It is working for a grade, doing the research, learning new things, and being my best.

Image #2235060 over display limit. -?- This week we will be in Proverbs 13. Prompt: "Proverbs 13:3 says "Those who guard their mouths preserve their lives: those who open wide their lips come to ruin."

Do you think Solomon is talking about gluttony here? What exactly is he saying?"

This is a passage that I would have to do a deep dive to properly interpret. I could do the research if I had the time but most people do not have the resources to research it thoroughly. By that I mean to say that most people do not have access to concordances, Lexicons, university library research databases, and so forth. I believe God would have kept it simple.

On first reading this could be interpreted as saying basically that those who keep their tongues under control may well save their own life while those with big mouths may get the stuffing beaten out of them. I think the passage does mean that. It also means that the person who keeps his words under control will not end up saying something he/she will later regret. Believe me, I have eaten crow a thousand different ways and there is no good way to do so! It's all a humbling experience. We all need a little crow and a serving of humble pie but indulge sparingly!

Image #2235060 over display limit. -?- Proverbs 12:11 says "He tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread: but he that followeth vain persons is void of understanding."

What does this mean?"

It means don't be lazy. I was lazy most of my life. I wasn't really lazy I guess. Just too trusting and too gullible. I was always taught to believe what people say and not to have my own opinions. I believed that garbage for a long time. Teachers in school called me "slow" because I had a head injury that prevented me from understanding complex concepts right away. I believed them as well. Then when I was 15 I was diagnosed with bi-polar disorder and told I would never hold a job. So I never really tried. I am 59 with no work history but have outgrown all the voices that I believed. I have two bachelor degrees, two associate degrees, and I'm working on my first Master's degree. I will likely be in school the rest of my life as I plan to pursue a post-doctorate degree. I will also be doing mental health counseling along the way to teach others not to believe anybody who says a disability will hold them back. I will also work with addicts as I believe many addicts believe those voices. Solomon calls those voices "fools" in this passage.

"The author talks about inspiration. Where does your inspiration come from?"

To be honest, I don't do much creative writing these days. I am a college student so most of my creative energy goes into writing scholarly papers. My inspiration comes from wanting good grades.

Image #1971183 over display limit. -?- Prompt: "Superman was a daily newspaper comic strip which began on January 16, 1939, and a separate Sunday strip was added on November 5, 1939. These strips ran continuously until May 1966. In 1941, the McClure Syndicate had placed the strip in hundreds of newspapers. At its peak, the strip, featuring Superman, was in over 300 daily newspapers and 90 Sunday papers, with a readership of over 20 million. My grandfather had a s scrapbook with his favorite comic strips all carefully preserved.

Do you read cartoon strips in the newspaper? Comic strip books? Graphic Novels? Or do you prefer watching them in the movies?"

No. I don't. Once in a great while I will read Hagar, Beetle Baily, and such. Very rarely.

Image #2235060 over display limit. -?- Prompt: "I just spent the entire day researching and writing a research paper about Ruth 4. I think I will ask a question based on Ruth today. Then we'll go back to Proverbs.

Why do you think the unnamed next-of-kin refused to redeem the land when he found out Ruth came with the land? After all, she was a foreign widow and basically a slave. She would have added value to his estate in that respect."

I spent the entire day yesterday writing a 1500 word paper about Ruth 4:1-10 and listening to some seminars playing in the background that I have to have for my licensure. I have a good skeleton now. Today I have to rip the paper apart and rewrite it. If you really want to learn about the Bible try writing exegesis papers about passages of it. Exegesis is when you take a passage of scripture and do a deep dive to research its meaning. You read scholarly papers about it and search the various aspects of the background.It can take hours to do a good exegesis but you learn tons about the culture and the Bible.

Today's prompt is about Ruth and Boaz. It asks why the unnamed next-of-kin refused to redeem the land when he found out that Ruth came with the land. Ruth was a foreigner living in Israel. Worse yet she was a widow. For all intents and purposes, she was Naomi's servant or slave. If the unnamed next-of-kin had redeemed the land he would have bought Ruth with the land. He did not have to marry her as many assume because she was not a citizen. The right of levir or the Jewish law stating that the next-of-kin of a deceased man had to marry the deceased man's wife and have a child with her in the deceased man's place did not apply. Ruth was essentially a slave. No. I believe there was another reason for the next-of-kin's strange behavior. I am going to postulate in my paper today that the next-of-kin turned it down because he knew that Boaz was either married to Ruth or wanted to marry her. The next-of-kin in the city gate would have been well aware of the flames between Boaz and Ruth. He backed out because he respected Boaz and was not about to interfere in Boaz's personal affairs. I believe that is exactly why he backed out. Ruth was a slave. She would have added to the value of his estate. Yet he stated that he did not want to jeopardize his inheritance. Incurring the wrath or the jealousy of a wealthy, powerful man like Boaz is the only logical explanation for this statement. If Boaz got jealous over Ruth the next-of-kin's estate could well have been threatened. My paper will reflect this position and subject it to scholarly review. We'll see how it goes over.

Food is something I need to slide away from a little bit. I am 275 pounds and I should weigh 180 pounds. I am way over weight.

My favorite food is lasagna. We have it around here periodically. I could eat my weight in it or their baked sphaghetti, which reminds of my mom's. They make it the same way.

I don't think the politicians are the problem with our nation. I think the problem is the media. They report only what meets their agenda and pushes their agenda. Objectivity is gone the wayside. The media will actually delete posts that do not agree with their agenda and block people who speak their hearts. It is disgusting to watch.

Image #2235060 over display limit. -?- Prompt: "Proverbs 12:9 says "He that is despised, and hath a servant, is better than he that honoureth himself, and lacketh bread."

What do you suppose the author means by this?"

I believe Solomon was eluding to the fact that even though God favors poor people over the rich, it is better to be a rich person than it is to be an arrogant, proud person. The problem is not money. The problem is what the money does to us. If it makes us forget God then having money is a problem. If it makes us greedy then it is a problem. Pride and arrogance are always a problem. So it is better to be rich enough to have a servant and to be hated by others because of jealousy than it is to be proud.

What will the diligent rule? What is a tribute and why are the slothful under it?"

God inspired Solomon to essentially tell us here that those who are diligent and on the ball will rule their own lives. Of course God is always the first person in charge of our lives, but if we are hard-working and on the ball, we will be second in command. Yes, we will always have bosses. No matter who we are we have other humans that we answer to. This proverb is not saying we will be independent and answer to nobody. It is saying that we will be in charge of our own lives. Nobody will tell us when to come and go. We will have a level of independence. The slothful on the other hand find themselves dependent on others. The tribute they pay is their self-worth. They surrender it because others tell them when to come and go when to eat when to sleep. They lose their sense of self. They become tributaries paying others for protection and care.

 A Time For Respect  (E)
Shadows and Light Poetry Contest
#2239288 by Anna Marie Carlson


What are your views about this poem?"

I agree with the author of this poem that times are definitely changing. These days gender roles are becoming blurred and people often don't know right from wrong. Chivalry as this young lady wants has long since died in the world. I used to open doors for ladies and offer to help if I thought they were distressed. I did so until a woman chewed me out for offering. She said I was a chauvanist pig. I told her "No. I am not a chauvanist. I simply saw you trying to change a flat tire and doing it in a way that would have torn the bumper off of your car and gotten you hurt. I thought I would prevent that but you go right on and hurt yourself."

She apologized and said she certainly did not want to damage her car or hurt herself and asked me to go ahead and change the tire for her. I did so but have not offered to help anybody like that since. I'm always afraid I will offend somebody and that is certainly not my intention.

Another problem is that people take things the wrong way. I say hello to nearly everybody I meet except for teen aged girls or younger women. I don't speak to them because I had a young woman call me a perverted old fool for speaking to her. She apparently thought she was God's gift to men and I was flirting with her. I was simply acknowledging that she existed.

Yes. Times are changing and they have not changed for the better. The Apostle Paul particularly told us that all of this was going to happen and prophecy is being fulfilled. It will only get worse.

Your thoughts,"

Aristotle was a brilliant thinker. His problem was that He did not know Jesus Christ so his thoughts were the vain philosophies of men. Aristotle had no hope of being truly blessed because He did not know the Holy Spirit.

Image #1971183 over display limit. -?- "Prompt: What things do you hate paying for?"

I hate paying for services I will never use just to get something I actually need. For example, I have needed programs for my computer but to get the program I had to buy a "membership" in some site that I would probably never use again. Then the membership is a one-month plan that bills to your debit card and then overdraws your bank account when you neglect to deduct it the following month or fail to find the miniature "cancel membership" link which is so small you either can't see it or completely non-existent. If I ripped people off that way I'd be locked up for fraud. When they do it they say it is "good business practices."

Solomon is saying here that a person should be honest. When they say they are going to do something they should do so. Jesus said we would be judged according to every idle word we speak. In other words, we should guard our mouths because we will be judged according to what comes out of them!

Write about the mountains.

I love the prompt! What is the unicorn's name? Is it a stallion or a mare?

I live in the Mountain State of West Virginia but the fact of the matter is that there is not a single mountain in our state. A mountain has to be at least 5,000 feet high to be called a mountain. Our highest peak is Spruce Knob in Raleigh County, which tops out at 4,280 feet, 180 feet short of being a real mountain. Ironic huh?

What do you think?"

I agree. I prefer it though when everything happens at once because then I am not bored. I'm one of those people who has to be active. That is why I go to school and work.

I hate voicemail. I want to talk. I have questions the voicemail can't answer or I wouldn't have called.

Image #2235060 over display limit. -?- This week we are moving to Proverbs 12. If you all grow weary of Proverbs let me know. Proverbs 12:3 says "No one finds security by wickedness, but the root of the righteous will never be moved."

Solomon is not referring to material security here. We all know some very wicked people who are financially very secure. What Solomon is talking about here is the security of heaven and oneness with God. He is also talking about peace of mind and contentment. Wicked people are often paranoid and guilt-ridden. Believers are usually calm in the face of adversity. I have had people ask me how I could be so calm when I was in danger. When my kidney was on the verge of rupturing due to a blockage I remained calm. The doctor scratched his head in amazement for he knew I was in a great deal of pain. He asked me about it. I told him that nothing on earth was permanent and that if I was to die Jesus was in control.

What are your views about this?"

I have to agree with this sentiment. If we simply open our eyes and look we will find that life has a lot to offer. Jesus offers us even more. Jesus said that He came that we "might have life and have it more abundantly."

The good news is that no matter who is in the white house, Jesus is still on the throne.

Joe Biden being impeached or dying scares me because Kamala Harris would be president. The event that would make me happiest is the return of Jesus.
