Who Ate the Pizza?

Here’s a little mystery. Chris is given some information and he must decide who the perpetrator of a deed is based on information he is given. The story begins.

Joshua walks into a room with Chris. Joshua never lies and Chris knows that. Joshua says, “See those ten tables? They were filled with pizza. Jeru ate all the pizza on seven of the tables and he ate all of the pepperoni pizza.”

Joshua leaves the room and Jock comes in. Jock also never lies and Chris knows that. Jock says, “Man, Chris, a guy came in here awhile ago and ate every single pizza off all ten of those tables, including all the pepperoni ones.”

Chris scratches his head and says, “You know what? I bet that was Roman. I’ve seen him eat five pizzas myself and he’s a really big guy. Yeah, it must have been him.”

Is Chris’s reasoning correct? Does his knowledge of Roman cause him to come to a wrong conclusion? Well, the guy who ate all the pizza had to be Jeru. We know that.

We understand language in everyday life. But when it comes to the Bible we tend to check our brain at the door. Our denominational dogma and creeds keep us from understanding plain language in the Bible that we could understand in other books. It’s sad.

Matthew 23:35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar…
37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee…

Luke 13:33…for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem.

Revelation 18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of ALL THAT WERE SLAIN ON THE EARTH. (Emphasis added.)

“And Now Is”

What does “and now is” mean in these two verses? Does it mean one thing in the first one and something totally different in the second one?

John 4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

John 5:25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.
26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;
27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.
28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

From the Spiritual to the Physical?

Zechariah 14:8 And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be. 

John 7:37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
39 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)

Revelation 21:6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.

Revelation 22:1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

Revelation 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

Are these all talking about the same water or is it different waters? Is Jesus talking about physical water or spiritual water? We went from the physical (Law) to the spiritual (Christianity). Are we hoping someday at the “end of time” to go back to the physical again? Come on, people, put on your thinking cap.

Remember: Mat 5:18 For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished.

That means the living waters have already gone forth or the Law is still in effect. Which do you think it is?

My Rap Poem

A friend of mine on a women’s Bible study list challenged me to speak in rhyme. So I quickly wrote the following little poem and am sharing it with y’all just for fun.

That’s great, Sister.
Put me on the spot.
Make me write in rhyme
With every tittle and every jot.
Turn my crazy head
Into a mess of rhyming.
Make me think about
The meter and the timing.

Like it’s not enough,
When writing on the list,
To come up with good stuff
For which I won’t get dissed,
You put another burden,
That’s now going to linger,
That most wouldn’t touch
With their little finger.

Don’t think I will forget.
Oh yes, I will recall–
How you made me work,
How you had the gall.
But lest I shirk a challenge,
Lest I be that weak,
Here’s your little poem.
Another do not seek!
