"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matthew 6:19-21 ______
I was listening to John Haller's Prophecy Update this week, and he brought up an interesting side note. There are 70 nations Meeting in Paris on the 15th to discuss the 2 state solution, and according to Genesis, chapters 10 and 11, there are 70 nations listed in "The Table of Nations." A quote from the following link explains "in Jewish tradition there were 70 original nations after the Flood, corresponding to the 70 names in this chapter."
The Henry Morris study Bible has an appendix titled "internal designs of the Bible". He gives caution to spiritualizing and interpreting the Bible based on numerology and typology, but he also says, "One cannot overlook the fact that some numbers in the Bible are used in a way as to indicate that the writer did regard these numbers themselves as being of special significance."
Of course we know the entire Bible was inspired by the Creator.
He goes on for several pages about certain numbers as seen in Scripture. One of them is 70.
Here are a few interesting things about that number:
-70 seems to be used in relation to judgment in a special sense as it affects Isreal among all the nations of the world.
-the original number of the children of Isreal as they left Canaan to go into Egypt was 70 souls.
-there were 70 original nations established by God, as indicated by adding up the names in Genesis 10 "the table of Nations".
-Isreal had 70 original elders to judge the people.
-70 scholars to translate the Scriptures into Greek.
-70 men on the Council of the Sanhedrin
-Christ sent 70 disciples to the "lost sheep of the house of Isreal"
And there's more, but I'll leave it at that.
It might mean nothing that there are 70 countries meeting on the 15th that may try to divide Isreal, or it could mean something. Either way I'm excited!
Luke 12:27 Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
I just read this article by Matt Ward
It was really good!
This one too. http://www.raptureready.com/soap2/nettles15.html
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me....

Well let's add to the crazy as the House of USA condemns the UN through a vote.
I would end up quoting whole article so others could interpret themselves. So I'll keep thread space minimal.
That isn't crazy. That is the first sensible thing I have seen come out of Washington in years. Of course, there is a new Congress, and that may have something to do with it.Lawmakers voted 342-80 in favor of the bipartisan non-binding resolution, which declares unwavering support for Israel and insists that the United States reject any future U.N. actions that are similarly "one-sided and anti-Israel."
A visibly angry House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis. opened debate on the resolution by saying that the Obama administration "abandoned our ally Israel when she needed us the most."
"Do not be fooled," Ryan said. "This U.N. Security Council resolution ... was about one thing and one thing only. Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish, democratic state.
"These types of one-sided efforts are designed to isolate and delegitimize Israel. They do not advance peace, they make it more elusive."
Or did you mean stuff like this is crazy:
"The point of the measure seems to be to bash Obama on the way out," said Rep. Gerry Connolly, D-Va., who along with many other Democrats still voiced strong support for Israel. They said Obama deserved credit for engineering last year's new, long-term security agreement
“It is unreasonable for Israel to fund bodies that operate against us at the UN,” Israel’s UN ambassador, Danny Danon, said. “The UN must end the absurd reality in which it supports bodies whose sole intent is to spread incitement and anti-Israel propaganda.”
