I’m at the Philly Airport!

This is going to be very short as I am both exhausted, from not sleeping and worn down by this stinking cold. It’s going to be a long day….
I will get to Los Angeles around 1:30 in the afternoon and then it’s right into bed! Sorry not much of a BLOG today…. To cranky! LOL! But seriously folks. Two Rabbis and a Minister walk into a bar…

  1. awwww, if there is a cough and chest congestion, you must find Buckley’s cough mixture. Tastes terrible but gives immediate relief. I never even need a full teaspoon full and I am prone to pneumonia. Get well!
    One Rabbi says to the other one, “Life is a joke” and the other Rabbi says “It is still good if it makes God smile” and the minister says, “I know the punch line!!!!”

    • I once had a terrible cold/flu and a friend mixed whiskey or bourbon w/ lemons that she had boiled for about 5 minutes w/ a little water, drained them, added the liquor and then added honey. I was very apprehensive to drink it as I don’t drink alcohol. I did drink it finally, went to bed shortly thereafter, slept like a baby, woke up and felt wonderful.

    • I shd clarify that she added the liquor to the liquid she drained off the lemons then added some honey to that mixture. Tasted really good, too.

  2. Make yourself a Hot Toddy when you get home. This is brandy and or with a Cinnamon stick, warmed up on the stove….Not boiled.

    Take a nap, and the “infection” will be sweated out.

  3. L.A. I’d use the old timers medicine the Brandy Hot tottie and start taking D3 (2000mg!!) and C(some call for dose 2x a day as leaves in body fluid). I use to get very ill ev. Oct./Nov. when the snowbirds brought their germs. I’d be sick 2mo. like croup!! Dr. on Fox said we are under prescribed with D3. Since I upped to 2000mg I have fought away these germs and if one bites (2x) it eaves before infecting me! My body can fight it off. Oh and Airborn & the other like it are a great vit. boost to fight back. Get well & rest!!! Those airpanes are horrific germ breeders!

  4. Vitamin c and zinc will shorten the cold duration. Elderberry syrup slows down the ability of virus to replicate. You should keep these on hand always to nip virus in the bud. Tea is great and so is homemade chicken soup for comfort. Sleep is paramount! But….we are all praying for you and thats even better! We all love you LA and are eternally thankful for you! And the cold…this too shall pass!

  5. Get well soon, L.A.

    I personally find, that sort of waiting for it to go away and complaining in the meantime, gets rid of every single illness. Sounds wacky, but.

    Laughter (or even smirking slightly at silly comments) helps too.

  6. Two rabbis and a minister walk into a bar and they discuss how they divide their tithes and offerings. The minister says he draws a circle on the sanctuary floor, throws the money up in the air, and whatever lands inside the circle he gives to God.
    The Reform Rabbis says he does similar, but whatver lands OUTSIDE the circle he gies to God.

    The Orthodox Rabi says “Oy gevelt. This I do. I throw the money up in the air, and whatever God wants, he keeps”

  7. Hi LA and everyone:

    I’m glad to hear that you are on your way home LA. Hope you get the rest you need and are up and at em real soon. I had a question regarding scripture for anyone that wants to weigh in. I was reading through I Corinthians chap. 11 last night and I noticed a verse that stuck out to me. The whole context was referring to head coverings and how God is the head of man and man the head of woman, etc. But in Chap. 11 verse 10 it said that the woman needed the covering of authority over them because of the angels. Hmmmmm, what could this mean? Could this have something to do with the Genesis 6 issue? Does anyone have any ideas to discuss? Thanks. Amen!

    • Yes. This is where the apostle Paul alludes to the Genesis 6 issue when the fallen angels looked upon the daughters of men and found them beautiful, lusted after them, took who they willed, had sexual relations with them, etc. The head covering the apostle Paul told the women to wear signified authority or protection from their husband (if they were married) or father (if they were single), but ultimately the protection would be from the Lord (a hedge of protection much like what is discussed in the beginning of the book of Job.) The Jews of the first century were very familiar with the book of Enoch among others. Josephus even wrote about the skeleton of a giant being on display in Jerusalem.

    • I don’t see 1 Cor. 11 as a man over woman issue. It’s about leadership and rebellion.

      We accept that a house divided against itself can not stand, and that satan is the author of confusion. The rebel angels also exemplify the chaos that results from uncertain leadership.

      In disasters, accidents, and battle, often there’s no time to work things out getting everyone’s input. Extreme times also come to families and church groups. It helps o have a strategy that all churches generally grasp, to keep out confusion and division.

      That said, there are times where a husband/father can’t function and the wife has to take the lead. Those situations may be long term, such as due to chronic illness in the family. It’s hard sometimes to follow the leading when it looks wrong or there’s a better way, but we learned in boot camp while marching, that when the leader gives a wrong order, it’s still best for everyone to follow, because it’s quicker to get everyone back on track when they’re not all doing different things. (Illegal orders are different matter.)

      Eve was deceived. Adam wasn’t, but he sinned willingly to be with Eve. Remember it’s quicker to get everyone back on track when they’re all doing the same thing wrong.

      We see how well satan and the rebels run things considering the amount of division they have in their forces.

      When Moses didn’t follow orders, it cost him going into the promised land. When Saul didn’t follow instruction, it cost him the kingship. When David didn’t follow standing orders given to kings, it cost him through a punishment levied against his people, which he had to select. And later trouble in his family, not in the least with Absalom — who had long hair! The rebels always want to get in their 2 cents. If we don’t listen to God, they’ll offer up evil counsel like Job’s sorry “friends” or worse.

      So whoever is leading needs to be followed — if you’re going to remain part of that assembly, house, or family. When there are no emergencies, then there’s time to get more input, or even let others lead, to practice in case they need to, whether that’s a spouse or mature children, especially when they need the training for their own lives later.

      In the Kingdom of Heaven, there is neither greek nor jew, male nor female, bond nor free…. As citizens in subject to the Lord of lords and King of kings, leadership is not a man – woman issue. It’s not even a parent – child issue. HIs sheep know His voice and follow Him. Not the pope. Not the preacher. Not even our own opinions. When we try, we end up with Hagars and Ishmaels, which then impact nations and generations.

      The place to celebrate our differences is in the family and churches — during normal times. Not in public though, nor during emergencies.

      As a rule, we need to have a standard — since we learn all this from very young — the exceptions should be rare but allowed without conflict when they occur. When the warriors are off defending the community, who’s left? Whoever is left better be ready to step into leadership, and have the confidence that they will be followed, since they’ve set that good example. The standard is God over Christ, Christ over man, man over woman. Wars and tumults and emergencies are going to come which throw diverse groups of people together in extremes. The standard takes some of the guess work out in chaotic and time sensitive situations.

      A woman shorn is no shame when she has no covering (leaders off to war, man chronically ill or incapacitated, etc). Long hair symbolizes being under a covering. One thing about a woman being shorn, it’s a definite communication, even to the young, that she’s willing to lead. Not unlike the situation with shaving the head as part of a vow, (cp. Acts 18:18) . Determination is part of leadership. (cp. Nazarite vow, Samson, etc. for cultural differences)

      For those that hold there are no exceptions. That’s a limit you place on youselves, beyond what’s allowed in the Word. If you believe it’s sin, you should follow the constraint.

      1 Corinthians 11
      1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.
      2 Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you.
      3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.
      [Which is a really flat organizational structure, no popes, saints, priests, preachers, apostles or other intermediaries involved]

      14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?
      15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.
      16 But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.

      1 Cor. 12
      31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.

      1 Corinthians 13

      1 Corinthians 14
      37 If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.
      38 But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant.
      39 Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.
      40 Let all things be done decently and in order.

    • Hello Nom, it has been suggested that if Adam hadn’t sinned he would have been able to be offered up as the sinless sacrifice that Jesus had to become.

    • okay, I’d like to see more on that theory…..if Adam (and Eve?) had not sinned then why would we need the sacrifice?

    • Hello Elaine ,as far as I understand it, it goes like this. Adam and Eve both sinned ,fell from Grace, and so humanity needed a perfect sinless sacrifice to be redeemed i.e. Jesus. Before the Fall both Adam and Eve were sinless. Eve sinned but if Adam hadn’t sinned he would have been a perfect sinless man . Adam instead of Jesus could have been offered up as the perfect sacrifice acceptable to God.

  8. Let’s see, pop some D3 and C, gargle with heated Dr. Pepper, take a shot of hot-toddie with whisky, honey, and lemon, plus tea as a chaser, followed by chicken soup for comfort. And Buckleys for cough and congestion 15 minutes before sleep. And compare jokes with the Lord about tithes and offerings along with prayers.

    Yep that oughta ’bout do the trick. His sense of humor is disarming with hidden surprises.

    I told him once, “Lord, I’m trying” … He said, “Yes, very trying.” 😉

    • And don’t forget water! Lots and lots of water. But Dr Pepper…heated? I’d try the liquor first…lol.
      I almost always get sick after I fly, but when I took volumes of Vitamin C before I boarded the plane, it helped fight off those nasty colds I’d get.
      I’m praying for you too, LA. Listened to your conference last weekend live and it was first-rate. You and Randy are a good team and your humor is fabulous. “I don’t want to be Robin!” Now that was just brilliant.

  9. do every single thing suggested here and by the time you finish you will be cured……or maybe just have run its course

  10. Aye, I hope you get better asap. I read your blogs daily. I do listen to each and every one of your interviews via youtube. I must say I have always looked into and studied the prophecy. I have never heard any one hitting each and every mind boggling event on target like you do. Its gettin scary. Let me know how I can donate to your work

  11. In world news, Obama apologizes for mistaken burning of qurans….

    Here’s how to burn a quran without apology…

    Or just do what we used to do with crypto key cards — mulch them in a blender to completely obscure the text.

    For really big thick stacks of paper or books, the most effective incinerator I’ve seen was a system that looked like a metal top hat that clamped to the top of a 55 gallon drum. There was a blower assembly on back of the drum roller rack, which attached to the top hat with two 2 inch flexible metal tubes. The top hat would direct the air in a vortex into the drum, and exhaust out openings at the top of the top hat. There were actually 2 blowers. With both turned on, the system worked and sounded like a jet. And would definitely make short work of a full drum of paper while minimizing left over ash. It definitely got hot.

    Of course, the better alternative would be for the prophets of baal to stack up bibles to burn, while we stack up quorans. And encourage the prophets to saturate the quorans with water, as part of a challenge to see which burn and which are truly holy. The followers of “the prophet” might want to consult history about Elijah for a potential outcome. (1st Kings 18)

    Also note:

    Acts 19
    17 And this was known to all the Jews and Greeks also dwelling at Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified.
    18 And many that believed came, and confessed, and shewed their deeds.
    19 Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them,
    and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver. 20 So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed.

  12. Two rabbi’s and a minister walk into a bar. The minister ask if they know Jesus. one Rabbi ask the other Rabbi, “who is this Jesus?” The other Rabbi says’ “you should only know”
