The stone of stumbling

   
לכן יתן אדני הוא לכם אות הנה העלמה הרה וילדת בן וקראת שׁמו עמנו אל


Isa 7:14  Therefore H3651 the Lord H136 himself H1931 shall give H5414 you a sign; H226 Behold, H2009 a virgin H5959 shall conceive ,H2029 and bear H3205 a son, H1121 and shall call H7121 his name H8034 Immanuel. H6005


This word for virgin means...H5959

עלמה
‛almâh
al-maw'
Feminine of H5958; a lass (as veiled or private): - damsel, maid, virgin.

it is closely related to ...      עםל
H5956

עלם
‛âlam
aw-lam'
A primitive root; to veil from sight, that is, conceal (literally or figuratively): -  X any ways, blind, dissembler, hide (self), secret (thing). 

The Jewish people who are against Yeshua love to bring out how this word for virgin means maid and not virgin. They dismiss it as if you don't know the language so therefore you don't know what your talking about.They are being deceitful and are in error. This word is used to describe the young lad who was used by David  to retrieve the arrows when he was hiding from Saul. A virgin is a secret maid, and that is why this word is used .

Living in a van

Ok so I havent been writting much because ive been preparing to move yet once again. But I thought to share on some of the things we have been doing. We bought a camper van a few years back shortly after getting married.  It has been very helpful at times but mostly sits around because its so costly to drive. We have been wanting to fix it up for awhile and use it more for traviling and preaching, but have needed to wait. Ok so now we got the green light and have been upgrading it to live in while crossing the country ! Here are a few pictures if some of the things we have been doing.

If I be a master, where is my fear ?

....taken from a tract on malachi 1:6.

Another way to pose the question is hypothetically: if everything which directly pertained to the gospel in our life were removed, what would remain? for a true disciple the answer would be, “ virtually nothing.” when Jesus is the master, ones life becomes centered around the witness, and seeking and promoting the kingdom of God. all other activities are arranged to maximize time spent in sewing to the spirit.( galatians 6:8) However, the answer of typical evangelicals would be quite different. after the removal of church attendance, daily devotions, and certain other activities and characteristics, the bulk of their life would remain essentially intact. in many cases, it could even be said that their lives are basically the lives of unbelievers, with some decorations placed on top which can, to greater or lesser degrees, be characterized as Christian.
        The reason these observations are the case is that mammon is the master of most people's lives, including most of those professing to be Christians. it is undoubtedly of the highest importance to them: the issues which largely direct their lives decisions are things that pertain to their career, or to their material situation; even where they will live, and when they will move, is often  directed by the sorts of considerations. Serving mammon has become the norm; and this has greatly affected how people think, without their even noticing it. Covetousness has become so normal, in fact, that though people are dedicating the vast majority of their waking hours to attaining material things, despite their tendency to shape and direct their life buy material considerations, and although their conversation and thoughts are all too often centered around material possessions; indeed, in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, they fail to see that they are serving mammon. Rather, many continue to maintain that their Master is Jesus.

Think it not strange.

*[[1Pe 4:4]] KJV* Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:

Beloved, think it not strange !
