Give Him a Stone!

Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? I found out, in my disappointment that asking for, bread, fish or even an egg, was harder than I realized. I found many a church more interested in building on instead of building up. I found that there was a mighty famine in that land, that many ofrepparttar Family of God had wasted their substance with riotous living. Waisted part of their inhearentance with buildings and sidewalks and fountains that served no one, that feed no one, that supplied no one, inrepparttar 137150 Family of God. I found out that there were those that took advantage ofrepparttar 137151 giving of some churches, I found out that this world had gotten a foot hold into many peoples lives. I found out that there were too many giving out serpents, scorpions and stones. I looked and found a mighty famine inrepparttar 137152 land for Bibles, thats correct, I said Bibles. When many were building on, many were suffering forrepparttar 137153 word of God. They were having a hard time in just obtaining a Bible, a preacher, a teacher, an evangelist, and all of this I found out was Bible Prophecy, coming to life in vivid full color. Amos, 8:12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and fromrepparttar 137154 north even torepparttar 137155 east, they shall run to and fro to seekrepparttar 137156 word ofrepparttar 137157 LORD, and shall not find it. Why I asked myself, why are these brothers inrepparttar 137158 family so destitute forrepparttar 137159 basics of Christianity? And then one scripture came to mind fromrepparttar 137160 Lord, Pro 21:6 The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek death. What did this mean, what was I to say? As I watchedrepparttar 137161 news and readrepparttar 137162 articles, I noticed that this man was saying, Donate $1,000,000 to me for if you don’t, God said that He will take my Life. Donate to me, for we need a sidewalk to a fountain, well even put your name in wood, donate to me and I will build you a stone monument with your name on it, that will last forever. Donate to me and I will userepparttar 137163 money to send ministers that are in trouble withrepparttar 137164 law to other countries to preach.” Donate,Donate,Donate. But not one was saying, ”Donate to me, so I can buy a bible for some brother without one, Donate to me so I can send out fliers and Bible tracts to those who don’t know Jesus, donate to me so I can send out evangelist to preachrepparttar 137165 word of God.” “Give Him a Stone, we need to build on, give him a serpent we need to spread out, give him a scorpion ,no one will knowrepparttar 137166 difference.” Many were and still are preaching, Matthew 25:13, Watch therefore, for ye know neitherrepparttar 137167 day norrepparttar 137168 hour whereinrepparttar 137169 Son of man cometh. But then they fool people into donating for, sidewalks, fountains, buildings, libraries and monuments, just to have their name carved into history. These arerepparttar 137170 blind leadingrepparttar 137171 blind, and there is coming a time that they both will fall intorepparttar 137172 ditch. These were just a few thoughts I wanted to share with you. Luke 15:32 It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found. Can we all just stop and remember what Jesus had to say? For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father giverepparttar 137173 Holy Spirit to them that ask him? Can we just stop and quit building on and start building up. Don’t be one of those who say “Give Him A Stone!”

Abaris (Rabbi) the Druid

He almost certainly helped arrange for Pythagoras to take his studies or visit Zoroaster, and spend much time learningrepparttar few secrets he unlocked atrepparttar 137074 Great Pyramid. Those secrets includerepparttar 137075 healing attributed torepparttar 137076 Therapeutae that modern Dead Sea Scrolls and other research indicates was taught at Qumran. I believe Commariusrepparttar 137077 tutor of Cleopatra may also have taught Jesus some of this art along with Simon Magus and other Gaedhils who had a long tradition of studies sincerepparttar 137078 time of Isis in Egypt. Abaris is translated as ‘Rabbi’ amongstrepparttar 137079 people who developedrepparttar 137080 sacerdotal code called Hebrew.

I have dealt with these healing and other arts inrepparttar 137081 other volumes, but I would also suggest it is possible Abaris was in charge ofrepparttar 137082 whole Keltoi education system. I suggest this because he arrived to meet Pythagoras onrepparttar 137083 recorded instance, when Pythagoras had already done much of his work. That would make Abaris a truly amazing character becauserepparttar 137084 Keltoi were still a major influence inrepparttar 137085 whole world and had what we might call universities or Ashrams throughout it. Hecateus was born in a position to take a prominent priesthood ofrepparttar 137086 Basilidae. He turnedrepparttar 137087 honor over to someone who needed it but his knowledge seems very Druidic as well. I continue to researchrepparttar 137088 Basilian Father’s origins and suspect they (likerepparttar 137089 Nestorians) are part ofrepparttar 137090 Judaeo/ Christian/Islamic elite working together to keeprepparttar 137091 majority in a state they are able to use to their own benefit. Who needs states or nations when you have corporate entities that work behindrepparttar 137092 scenes as well as religions?
