for theirs is the kingdom of heaven

Posted 04-28-09 at 10:14 AM by Song of Mercy
No joke, this section of scripture gave me a work out this morning. I have been chasing down parts of speech, similar uses of words, and themes that are similar with the words ‘is’ ‘kingdom’ and ‘heaven.’ I found one thing out, even in reference tools; no one really cares to make a decisive statement about this passage.

There is a false doctrine that some of you may be familiar with; the doctrine of the ‘kingdom now.’ This doctrine teaches that we are now in heaven and that there is...

Day 3 (a)

Posted 04-28-09 at 03:00 AM by knowledgelover (Trying polyphasic sleep...)
Slept from 03:45-7:15. Quite a success.

Went out to lend some books and felt miserable - nervous, sweating and shivering.
Was "lucky" at first because I thought I finally had some sleep deprivation "symptoms".
But, as it turned out, it was only a low blood sugar (didn't measured it, but eating sugar helped within minutes).

Day 2 (d) - Summary

Posted 04-27-09 at 07:10 PM by knowledgelover (Trying polyphasic sleep...)
dozed: 22:00-22:20

Altogether, I am amazed how much I'm not tired.
I avoided caffeine as much as possible, so there was no increase compared to a normal day.
Same goes for my ADHD med (Dexamphetamin) - I didn't take more, since I "extended" the time between some doses. Normally, I take it every ~ 4h, but I have to be careful not to "overdose" myself - on the other hand, waiting too long may lead to an efficiency "hole" between two doses......

Day 2 (c) "SNAFU"

Posted 04-27-09 at 01:00 PM by knowledgelover (Trying polyphasic sleep...)
I was REALLY tired in my afternoon class. BUT that is nothing new, I normally doze (off) in classes from this prof

Back home, I tried to sleep at ~ 17:20 and I was even(!) sleeping some minutes. Yay!

I was laying in my bed for about 30 minutes, maybe 5-10 minutes were some "light sleep".
BUT it helped a lot / felt great afterwards.

Who are the poor in spirit?

Posted 04-27-09 at 08:52 AM by Song of Mercy
The poor in spirit are those souls who do not believe they are sufficient in themselves apart from God. They see themselves in a position of need. They are beggers. This humble position of begging God for a greater understanding of Him positions them for the blessing or congratulations of God himself.


So far we have looked at the beginning section of Matthew 5:3. "Blessed are the poor in spirit." My understanding of this portion of scripture is:
