Warning! "The Land Will Vomit You Out!!"
Suffering 'natural' disasters? Do the Hebrew Scriptures have any information on extreme weather, earthquakes, fires, droughts, floods, devastating winds, tsunamis?
In the third book of Moses (which the ancient Greeks renamed as "Leviticus"), there is a warning, found nowhere else in the Holy Bible. It is a warning that the land where the Hebrews were heading would vomit them out if they indulged in certain practices of the previous inhabitants. There is no time limit specified, so the same warning would apply today. In this document, that warning is explored. Read it online or download from Google Docs or from an alternate site.
The Translator's Dilemma shows why "sons of God" is misleading when applied to angels in the Old Testament. Readers will be surprised by the wide range of meaning of the hebrew word "ben", which is often well rendered as "thing made by" but English does not read well with a literal translation of a phrase such as "ben Elohim" as "thing made by God". Translators know the problem but should they use an inaccurate simple poetic word like "son" or write a correct but lengthy in-line explanation? Unfortunately some people have been misled by the simple translation "son" and have established foundational doctrines of their churches on it. Read the warnings of risks of mistranslating text from another time and another culture to contemporary society.

Was the creation at the time of Adam the first and only time life was created on this planet? For many years, some Bible students have pointed out that there is evidence of an earlier creation of a vibrant global ecosystem (without humans), totally wiped out for millions of years by a global disaster, and later followed by a re-creation of an extended global ecosystem, almost six thousand years ago, which saw the appearance of the first humans. The story and references are provided in A Huge Time Gap in the Creation on Genesis? ( alternate site )
Many people are aware that the ancient Hebrew theocratic nation sacrificed animals for various reasons, including atoning for sins. However, the document Only Female Animals Were Acceptable For Personal Sin Offerings will surprise many in that it lists the Levitical priesthood laws that forbad the use of young male animals for sin offerings for the common people. Only female animals were permitted. ( alternate site )
The ancient sacrifice of the first Passover lambs in ancient Egypt protected only a select small group of people, as shown by scriptures in Passover: Only the First Born Were Ever At Risk. No one else was threatened. ( alternate site )
All Nations Shall Glorify the Sacred Name in Jerusalem. These are quotes from Psalm 86, alleged to have been written by King David, ruler of the House of Judah and the House of Israel,thousands of years ago. This psalm has not yet been fulfilled, so there is a Biblical prophecy that All Nations Shall Glorify the Sacred Name, in Jerusalem, not in some other city. ( alternate site )
Malachi 1:11 The Sacred Name Will Be Used Worldwide reviews a prophecy in the writings of the prophet Malachi concerning the proper name of the Hebrew God. Note: It's about His NAME, not about any TITLE. ( alternate site )
Glorify the Sacred Name, Not Ignore or Reject It is inspired by the verses in Psalms and Chronicles which instruct genuine believers to do just that. It also points out a warning in The Book of Malachi that those who refuse to give glory to the Sacred Name will have a curse laid on them. ( alternate site )
