Oh, I had worser dreams than are in that demonically channeled book, "A Divine Revelation of Hell" by Mary Whatever her name is.  The dreams I used to have of it made her stuff look like something out of a Bugs Bunny cartoon!  And it wasn't just the emotional intensity of it either.

By the way, please tell Mr. Priddy that we're praying for him over in Fort Worth, Texas.  I believe that the "bible truths" website and that wonderfully obnoxious brother over there had already devoted a webpage 3 or 4 years ago to mentioning Mr. Priddy's relationship to one of your favorite authors.  :happygrin:

During the 90s, I kept pressing the Lord that I wanted to know what all believers would know a thousand years from now.  Kinda hoping most of my writing over the last 6 years isn't what'll only be understood ten centuries from now, but I do have a feeling that stumbling into UR for me was a partial answer to that prayer.  I was deeply disturbed by a statement that was going around in the Charismatic movement at the time, from either Myles Monroe or Rick Godwin that went something like, "You were born an original, don't die a copy!"  So that was what kept motivating that prayer to a large degree.

I told him you were praying for him and gave him your e-mail addy in case he wants to write you.

Just because God says He will save all mankind
does not necessarily mean He won't.

Was there a time when Yahweh did not have wisdom and had to acquire it?

I think it's more like God deciding that now would be a good time in human history to take a course of action. That's my thought, anyway.

That's an interesting thought, Redkora. Can you expand on your thought?

Tony

Personally, I believe that God lets humanity go a certain way and intervenes when he sees fit. Seeing how the course of human history was going a certain way, God decided to bring a new revelation.

It's hard to describe...humans have no free will, yet they can still choose. God pretty much knows what is going to happen, but sometimes watches for what will happen. It's a paradox. Spiritual things are strange like that from what I know so far.

I could just be rambling, though. I haven't been feeling well and I would probably have to write three pages worth of stuff to get everything out of my head to explain it to the best of my ability.

If you read the rest of the chapter, you'll see that it basically describes this present creation. In the poetic language of Proverbs (it was pritten poetically in the original in order that it could be sung or chanted) it appears to me to say that "the beginnining of His way" refers to the the thing the Lord first got or acquired for His creation, not for Himself.

Quote
Pro 8:22 The Lord formed and brought me [Wisdom] forth at the beginning of His way, before His acts of old.
Pro 8:23 I [Wisdom] was inaugurated and ordained from everlasting, from the beginning, before ever the earth existed.
Pro 8:24 When there were no deeps, I was brought forth, when there were no fountains laden with water.
Pro 8:25 Before the mountains were settled, before the hills, I was brought forth,
Pro 8:26 While as yet He had not made the land or the fields or the first of the dust of the earth.
Pro 8:27 When He prepared the heavens, I [Wisdom] was there; when He drew a circle upon the face of the deep and stretched out the firmament over it,
Pro 8:28 When He made firm the skies above, when He established the fountains of the deep,
Pro 8:29 When He gave to the sea its limit and His decree that the waters should not transgress [across the boundaries set by] His command, when He appointed the foundations of the earth--
Pro 8:30 Then I [Wisdom] was beside Him as a master and director of the work; and I was daily His delight, rejoicing before Him always,

Tell me that ain't poetic! Anyway, it's from the Amplified version, and I think you see what I mean.

  :ty:  I tried emailing him about a week or so ago and couldn't find either an email address or a contact form on the website.  It was like 3:30am or something like that, so there's no telling if I yawned right past the link or looked right at it and it didn't click.  I had to take a couple of my contact forms down because I was getting slammed pretty hard with spam via the contact form, so don't know if he was going through something similar or if I just honestly missed the link.  When contact forms start getting all of the mortage emails and links to sexual websites, spam's just getting ridiculous.

They're so eager to use an ax for crimes in the Muslim world, that I'm genuinely curious if they have any of the spam issues we've had in the U.S. or if it's at the very least greatly reduced.   Hmmmm.... might be an additional reason to go over there to preach the Gospel.  Assuming I lived a few weeks instead of a few hours, it might be a more enjoyable email account  :2c:
