Cat Eats With Fork! ¢



Is it strange to train your animal
to eat with utensils? The lady in
this clip doesn't think so. Watch
and see how she has trained her
cat not only to eat with a fork,
but with chopsticks, and a spoon.

The Voice of the Shepherd

At a recent exhibit of the Dead Sea Scrolls a visitor remarked of the tour,
"Just to look at it makes chills run down my spine. This Bible through the
ages still says the same thing."

Found in 1947 in several caves near the Dead Sea in Qumran, the Dead Sea
Scrolls, which include over six hundred scrolls and thousands of
fragments, contain portions or entire sections of every Old Testament book
except Esther. The discovery, which was made accidentally by a young boy
herding sheep, revealed the oldest copies of the Hebrew Scriptures
hitherto known to be in existence. For those who read them first, it must
have indeed been stirring, as this observer notes even years later, to see
the remarkable precision between the scrolls of Qumran and the text of
their own Bibles. To many the Dead Sea Scrolls are one more sign of the
care and detail with which God and God's Word have moved throughout

In fact, before Johannes Gutenberg invented the printing press in 1438,
there were only 30,000 books throughout all of Europe. Nearly all of
these works were Bibles or biblical commentary recorded meticulously at
the hands of monks with pen and ink. Even a small book took months to
complete, and a book the size of the Bible required several years to
produce. Fittingly, the first book printed on Gutenberg's press,
completed in 1455, was the Bible itself. Today it remains the most
printed and best selling book of all time. In the words of the prophet
Isaiah, quoted again centuries later by the apostle Peter, "All men are
like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the
grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands
forever" (1 Peter 1:24-26). God's voice is indeed among us, crying out to
all who will hear.

To a crowd of people, some willing, others unwilling to listen, Jesus once
proclaimed: "The one who enters by the gate is the shepherd of the sheep.
The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep hear his voice. He
calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out
all his own, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him because they
know his voice" (John 10:2-4). In this description of sheep and shepherd,
Jesus conveys the startling idea of self-disclosure and the compulsion of
recognition. As with any voice we recognize, it is much more than
acknowledging a string of inanimate, though recognizable sounds. We
recognize a person beyond the sounds, one who has chosen to speak in our
own language so that we might understand and in turn respond. How much
more so this is true of the shepherd's voice. In word, in revelation, in
covenant and relationship, the Father makes Himself known to us, the voice
of the Son leading us further into the care and presence of the Father.
Like a shepherd calling out to his sheep, God's word goes forth, leading
all who will listen, compelling into action those who recognize the voice
of one worth following. But more than this, the shepherd's voice is one
that moves us because it is our own names we hear called out.

In July of 2004, the people of Ranonga, a small, remote island in the
Solomon Islands, read the words of Christ for the first time in their own
language. The arrival of the New Testament in Lungga, the local language,
followed more than 20 years of fundraising efforts by the local people.
When the finished copies were finally available, a local pastor declared,
"Today God has arrived in Ranonga. He has arrived in our own culture and
is speaking to us in our own language."(2) Praise be to the God who
speaks, whose Word is living and active, and to Christ, the Word himself,
who comes to us like a shepherd and whose voice leads us home. This voice
continues to move throughout history, bringing light and life, bidding us
near, calling us by name, standing forever.

Verse of the Day

Thought &


* * * Four important things to KNOW: #1) For ALL (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) have sinned & fall short of the glory of God. #2) For the wages of above (see #1) are DEATH (Hell, eternal separation from God, & damnation) but the Gift (free & at no charge to you) of God (Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is Eternal Life (Heaven) through (in union with) Jesus Christ (God, Lord, 2nd Person of The Trinity, Messiah, Prince of Peace & Savior of the World). #3) For God so greatly loved & dearly prized the world (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) that He even gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone, anywhere, anytime - while still living) believes (trust in, relies on, clings to, depends completely on) Him shall have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven). #4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIFE. No one (male/female - American, Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist, Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc. ) comes (arrives) to the Father (with GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through) ME (no other name). *** This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - - (Rev. 3:20) {Please note that church membership, baptism, doing good things, etc. are not requirements for becoming a Christian - however they are great afterwards!!!} *** Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction (Hell, damnation, eternal punishment), and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness, forever with God), and only a few find it.

God loves you so much that He died for you!!!
