Parenting… Paul Beverly

Of all the jobs I’ve had, the one constant is being a parent. It’s the one I’m most proud of & strive be better at. It’s the one that’s most important to me. It’s the one I feel I probably fail at the most, but I truly hope & pray I get better at & my children respect, appreciate, & love me for. I know there are some that for whatever reason, will not have kids, but believe me when I say there are kids that look up to you. You have a job with them too. It truly takes a village. Have a heart for children & be an example…

Psalm 103:13 Just as a father has compassion on his children, So the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him.

Hebrews 12:7 It is for discipline that you endure; God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom his father does not discipline?

Have a great week my friends!!!

What good comes from bitterness & anger? It not only affects the people you are showing these acts towards, but it holds you back & keeps you from peace & God’s blessings. Being angry & bitter won’t fix anything, but love & forgiveness will. Let go & let God!

Hebrews 12:14-15 Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no “root of bitterness” springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled.

Romans 12:18 If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.

Proverbs 3:30 Do not contend with a man for no reason, when he has done you no harm.

Have a grace filled week my friends!!!

Trend Update: Cloning Jesus, 2017

Posted in Gospel, Resurrection, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 5, 2017 by paulthepoke

An Oxford geneticist and a theologian are teaming up to find the DNA of Jesus Christ. The Oxford University geneticist is George Busby. The theologian is Pastor Joe Basile. The History Channel has completed a special on the topic called “The Jesus Strand”.

The team has looked at the Shroud of Turin, the Sudarium of Oviedo, and potentially the bones of John the Baptist. A goal is to obtain DNA from each of these samples to determine the DNA of Christ. The ultimate goal of scientists would be to clone Jesus Christ. And they are trying.

Separately from this project, other scientists are working on extracting DNA from the James Ossuary and the bones found.

With all of these projects, there is a series of tremendous assumptions. One, the Shroud of Turin and the Sudarium of Oviedo belong to the actual person who is the Jesus Christ. On the surface, it appears the Shroud and Sudarium are likely to belong to the same person. Blood stains correspond with both pieces of linen. Wounds are consistent with flogging and crucifixion. A specific pollen is found on both items which is indigenous to ancient Israel.

A rare blood type AB from a male is noted on both artifacts. As a side note, a person with blood type AB is a universal recipient. He can take any blood type into his body.

Other significant assumptions include the accurate identification of John the Baptist and James. Do the bones actually belong to the historical persons in the Bible?

So why Jesus, John the Baptist, and James? Specifically, scientists are looking at the family tree of the Virgin Mary. She is one half of the equation of Jesus.

John the Baptist is the cousin of Jesus. The mother of John the Baptist is Elizabeth. She is related to Mary. Luke 1:36 “And behold, even your relative Elizabeth has also conceived a son in her old age; and she who was called barren is now in her sixth month.” –Angel

See Luke 1 for complete details of Mary, Elizabeth, John the Baptist, and Jesus.

James is the half-brother of Jesus. Galatians 1:19 But I did not see any other of the apostles except James, the Lord’s brother.

 

As for the other half of Jesus’ genetic code, good luck with that. Matthew 1:20 But when he had considered this, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife; for the Child who has been conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.”

This is the fulfillment of the prophecy written at least 700 years before Mary from Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel.

There is only one Earthly example of DNA from the Father’s lineage, Jesus Himself. And He is not around. He is alive at the right of the Father in Heaven. There are no buried bones here on Earth, only His shed blood.

Hebrews 12:2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
