Crushing Snakes

Reactions: 
I love this song so much, every word can be found in the Word of God, I took the time to search the lyrics and match verses, this is the result...
"Crushing Snakes" by Crowder

We're not afraid - Psalm 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me
Terrors of night
Arrows that fly by day Psalms 91:Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
Ten thousand may fall but we
We will remain Psalm 91:7A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
We're not afraid
A promise of God
Can never be torn away Psalms 89:34 - My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.
Walking on hands of angels - Psalm 91:11-12 "He will give his angels charge of you to guard you in all your ways. On their hands they will bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone"
Crushing snakes Luke 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
Safe under the shadow of His wings - Psalm 91:4 He will cover you with His pinions, And under His wings you may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark.
Our fortress and our strength
Our fortress Psalm 18:2 The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

We're taking back our freedom Isaiah 42:6-7 "I am the LORD, I have called You in righteousness, I will also hold You by the hand and watch over You, And I will appoint You as a covenant to the people, As a light to the nations, To open blind eyes, To bring out prisoners from the dungeon And those who dwell in darkness from the prison.
Our battle has been won John 16:33 ESV I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
We have been liberated John 8:36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
Our battle has been won 2 Chronicles 20:17 Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the LORD with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the LORD will be with you.
We have been liberated Romans 6:22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
Back from the dead, we've come Ephesians 1:20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,

We're not afraid
A promise of God
Can never be torn away
Walking on hands of angels
Crushing snakes
Safe under the shadow of His wings
Our fortress and our strength
Our fortress

We're taking back our freedom
Our battle has been won
We have been liberated
Back from the dead, we've come

Do you see Him Revelation 1:7 - Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they [also] which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.
King of Heaven Matthew 25:31-34 - When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
Champion of all creation Colossians 1:16 For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities--all things have been created through Him and for Him.
Eyes of fire Revelation 19:12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
Voice of thunder Job 26:14 "Behold, these are the fringes of His ways; And how faint a word we hear of Him! But His mighty thunder, who can understand?"
Tearing through the sky in wonder Matthew 24:29-30 "But immediately after the tribulation of those days THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED, AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT, AND THE STARS WILL FALL from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. "And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the SON OF MAN COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF THE SKY with power and great glory.
Dressed in light we Psalm 104:2 Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain:
See Him coming
On a horse that's white like lightning Revelation 6:2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
Do you see Him 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 - For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

Do you see Him
King of Heaven
Champion of all creation
Eyes of fire
Voice of thunder
Tearing through the sky in wonder
Dressed in light we
See Him coming
On a horse that's white like lightning
Do you see Him
Do you see Him

Do you see Him
King of Heaven
Champion of all creation
Eyes of fire
Voice of thunder
Tearing through the sky in wonder
Dressed in light we (Piercing through the sky)
See Him coming (Breaking through the darkness)
On a horse that's white like lightning
Do you see Him
Do you see Him

We're taking back our freedom
Our battle has been won
We have been liberated
Back from the dead, we've come

We're taking back our freedom
Our battle has been won
We have been liberated
Back from the dead, we've come

Back from the dead, we've come
Back from the dead, we've come

Reactions: 
I am still around orbiting Sol... just not transmitting much... I guess I can relate to Telstar1...

"On the morning of July 10, 1962, a NASA Thor Delta rocket launched into the upper atmosphere with the delicate Telstar satellite held in its nose and deposited it in an elliptical orbit at just under 6,000km (3,700mi) from earth (still 22,300 miles short of the as-yet-unnamed Clarke Belt)."

"Despite its fried transistors, Telstar still orbits the earth today, and it will continue to do so for the next 200 years when its orbit will decay as it succumbs to earth’s gravity."

Boerewors mince Terrinne.

Reactions: 


Terrine as described by Wiki: 

So onward with the recipe... 
1. Around 500g boerewors mince. 
2. Packet bacon bits. 
3. Packet of streaky bacon or more if you want. 
4. Diced onion to taste, I use about a cup. 
5. Diced sweet pepper, green, yellow, red, whatever is at hand. 
6. The crust slice from a loaf of brown bread, crumbed. 
7. One crushed clove of garlic. 
8. Garlic and herb seasoning, add later too taste. 
9. 2 lare eggs 
10. Fresh chopped coriander and basil, as much as you like. 
Preheat oven to 180C. 
Assemble ingredients as follows. Grease a pie pan (I used a 170x170cm cake pan) Line pie pan with streaky bacon by dangling half of each peace over the side, so you can fold it back over the filling. 

Add the rest of the ingredients and crack the eggs over the mix, use hour hands to thouroughly blend the ingredients. Start filling the bacon coverd pan with the filling, make sure to fill the corners. Fold the bacon over the filling in a basket weave pattern if you like. 
Pop the lot into the oven and bake for -+ 60 minutes till the top bacon turns crusty. Use a knife to cut portions, serve with a salad and bun in the company of your favourite person.

Hate is a horse best left unsaddled.

Reactions: 
I see a lot of people claiming to be christian (lower case for a reason) that seem to have unbridled hate for the situation they find themselves in the country. Yes crime is bad and it seems to be targeting farmers, but the murders in townships are not as newsworthy are they? As a Christian I cannot hate another person, no matter the colour of their skin. The simple reason being thatb God so loved the world that he sent his Son to die on a Cross for us all, who am I to hate another in the light of this amazing love? So I say to them "Hate is a horse best left unsaddled!" if you do get on it's back you will suffer more than you can imagine, hate breeds dark thoughts that cloud your judgement and make a person bitter, this bitterness will litterally kill you and steal all your joy. Leave that horse to mind it's own business, God himself will use it one day in Judgement... only he can saddle up the horse of righteous judgement, when we try it becomes hate. Maranatha!

Time flies...

Reactions: 
When you are busy...
Amazing, already more than a month into 2014 and it feels like I need a holiday... This song is pretty apt for how things have been the last few weeks. If this keeps up 2014 will pass in a twinkling of an eye...

"Time Flies"


I was born in '67
The year of Sgt. Pepper
And Are You Experienced?

Into a suburb of heaven
Yeah, it should've been forever
It all seems to make so much sense

But after a while
You realize time flies
And the best thing that you can do
Is take whatever comes to you
'Cause time flies

She said luck is all you make it
You just reach out and take it
Now let's dance a while

She said nothing ever happens
If you don't make it happen
And if you can't laugh then smile

But after a while
You realize time flies
And the best thing that you can do
Is take whatever comes to you
'Cause time flies

And laughing under summer showers
Is still the way I see you now

How does time break down
With no marker, things slow down.
A conference of the strange
And your family is deranged

I could tell you what I'm thinking
While we sit here drinking
But I'm not sure where to start

You see there's something wrong here
I'm sorry if I'm not clear,
Can you stop smoking your cigar?

But after a while
You realize time flies
And the best thing that you can do
Is take whatever comes to you
'Cause time flies

And the coat your wore to Alton Towers
It's still the way I see you now
So remember... 
“Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana.” Anthony G. Oettinger

Hidden in the lyrics... hidden in the life...

Reactions: 

I'm listening to music as I ponder the passing of Nelson Mandela, reflecting on his life and how he lived, a man just like me, with foibles and faults but also a man that from what I have read pondered on the word of God and on his release acted on this. For this we are grateful. Let us cherish the best of his life as a country.

Now it struck me that often a song that I like has hidden in the lyrics words from God... this is one such. By the way the singer is from what I have read also a Christian.

In a world of desire,
oh who would come and catch you when you fall
in the wind and the fire?
oh who would come to save you?


High above any danger…
Locked inside the tower of your mind,
dreams are veiled; passion blinded.
Safe from fear and fire.

Oh who will find me?
In your midnight eyes, I see a summer sunrise.
Fly far beyond these silver winter skies.
I see a beautiful life. Oh, come and get away.

Do you see the horizon?
Walk upon the water, you will find
all is still and yet alive
in the morning light.

Oh who will find me?
In your midnight eyes, I see a summer sunrise.
Fly far beyond these silver winter skies.
I see a beautiful life. Oh, come and get away.

Dance dance in the morning light.
Open your darkened eyes.
Hey, hey, it’s a beautiful day.
It’ll be ok. It’ll be ok.

Take a look, spin around, this is where I find you… where the roses bloom.
Leave your cares, leave your fears, leave them all behind you… yeayah.
It’s a beautiful day in the city of shining light.
It’s a beautiful day. This is where I find you… yeayah


Jesus walked on water and he is the Light and he promises that we will be with him in the City of Light one day.
Just as Jesus gives us hope for a life everlasting we pray that Madiba's life wil inspire others too.


So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal. 
2 Corinthians 4:16-18

Euphoria

Reactions: 

Euphoria - Loreen (Eurovision 2012)

Why, why cant this moment last forevermore?
Tonight, tonight eternity's an open door
No, don't ever stop doing the things you do.
Dont go, in every breath I take I'm breathing you
Euphoria
Forever, till the end of time
From now on, only you and I
We're going up-up-up-up-up-up-up
Euphoria
An everlasting piece of art
A beating love within my heart
We're going up-up-up-up-up-up-up
We are here, were all alone in our own Universe,
We are free, where everything's allowed and love comes first,
Forever and ever together, we sail into infinity,
We're higher and higher and higher, we're reaching for divinity.
Euphoria
Forever, till the end of time
From now on, only you and I
We're going up-up-up-up-up-up-up
Euphoria
An everlasting piece of art
A beating love within my heart
We're going up-up-up-up-up-up-up
Forever we sail into infinity,
Were higher, were reaching for divinity
Euphoria, euphoria
We're going up-up-up-up-up-up-up
Euphoria.
An everlasting piece of art
A beating love within my heart
We're going up-up-up-up-up-up-up
Euphoria, euphoria
We're going up-up-up-up-up-up-up

We remember today...

Reactions: 
Let us always keep doing so. What happened that day was one of those turning points in history.
As I mentioned in another post on this same day.
The day the world changed and we all knew the face of evil... and the face of Love.

Taken, blessed, broken, given

Reactions: 
Watch it all...
 
Lord let me also be like the bread of communion. 
"And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body." Matthew 26:26
