Good morning bus riders!
We are now at the sixth Sunday after Pentecost, with the Day of Pentecost reflecting when one is divinely ordained to serve Yahweh as His Son reborn.
Here, it is vital to realize that this in no way is based on intellect, desire, or from any place where one enters ministry in order to save oneself.
While there is a great need to have absorbed the education that comes from Scripture, all of that which has been processed by one’s brain becomes a distraction, rather than an assistant.
You see, the education of spiritual matters is what proves to Yahweh that one’s soul is sincere and in love with serving His completely. The more one studies, the more one received spiritual insight that goes far beyond what the written words appear to be saying.
This means that one’s brain is too small to retain all the knowledge shared with a soul – processed for understanding by a brain – meaning one’s soul as the Big Brain that controls its flesh has to die of self first, in order to become where the soul of Jesus resurrects.
That resurrection is the symbolism of Pentecost. Fifty days is symbolic of the time spent learning the truth … much more than one’s brain can remember off hand. This means Pentecost is the end of that learning period (which might be fifty years, rather than fifty days), reflecting as the death of self, so that the Big Brain gives way to the soul of Jesus.
The ordinary season after Pentecost is then when one is sent out into ministry as a pair – the soul of Jesus as one’s Lord, joined with the soul born into a body of flesh, who does nothing more than say, “Yessir!” whenever told by the soul of Jesus to do something.
The sixth Sunday after Pentecost is then symbolic of the meaning behind the number six. Six was when the Creation was completed; but it was before the seventh day, when Yahweh told the elohim who completed His Creation, “Take a rest. Your role has been completed.”
The sixth day then reflects upon the creation of man – males and females elohim made them … in their image – prior to Yahweh creating His Son, the Yahweh elohim stated eleven times in Genesis 2, who we all know as “Adam.”
This means the number six is a number that says there are two kinds of elohim – the good angels and the bad angels.
This is then at the core of all the lessons today, where there is this duality of good versus evil.
As for Amos, Last Sunday we saw him confront the evil priest Amaziah, after having been shown a vision of a wall with a plumb line. Yahweh told him to go prophesy of coming destruction to those who pretended to serve Yahweh, while serving self-interests.
Today, Amos again is shown a vision by his “adonay Yahweh,” where an “adonay” is a “Yahweh elohim” that has become the “Lord” of Amos’ soul-flesh.
Ordinary people do not have divine visions and then told to go prophesy. That commitment to serve Yahweh demands a divine marriage [Baptism by His Spirit, made a Messiah or Christ], followed by a divine possession [the resurrection of Yahweh’s Son within one’s soul – the “adonay” that is Adam-Jesus].
Today we read of a vision of “summer fruit in a basket.” This needs to be seen in terms of the ‘omer of first fruits,’ which are gathered and taken to the Tabernacle-Temple at the onset of the Passover, with those ‘first fruits’ deemed ripe and fit to eat on Pentecost.
The “summer fruit” must be seen as synonymous with the Fall festival of Sukkot.
According to a Jewish website I found, the symbolism of Sukkot reflects “an essential change of values. By changing our values—from individualistic and egoistic to connective and altruistic—we will be able to create a safe, harmonious and happy world.”
That is the duality of good versus evil.
In the song sung by Amos, which we read today, the strong impression I receive is the “summer fruit” are seedless. Instead of being a reflection of Amos singing about the people of the Northern Kingdom being “connective and altruistic,” they were selfish, as “individualistic and egotistic.”
Yahweh told Amos He saw the end of his people of Israel, where He would not “pass by them again.” That is a direct reference to the Passover, which says Yahweh would no longer be sparing the lives of the firstborn, because none of them would be protected by the blood of the Paschal lamb.
We then read Yahweh ask Amos: “When will the new moon be over so that we may sell grain; and the sabbath, so that we may offer wheat for sale?” That sings of Passover [Nisan], where the first month of the ecclesial year begins when the “new moon” begins that month.
This prophetic vision shown Amos then shows how a spiritual commitment of divine marriage was known by Yahweh to only lip service, for festival days and Sabbaths only.
We then read a verse that is vital to grasp today, as the same prophecy speaks loud and clear for all times. We read, “says adonay Yahweh , I will send a famine on the land ; not a famine of bread nor a thirst for water , but for a hearing of the words of Yahweh.”
The translation services used by all the English-speaking churches of Christianity are amid a long “famine … for hearing of the words of Yahweh.”
The point of seedless fruit says there are no elders who can pass along the necessity of self-sacrifice, where one’s soul marries Yahweh and is resurrected – each and every soul in flesh so taught – as the soul of His Son being one with each devoted soul.
Being seedless means being selfish; so, there is nothing passed on for the future. If each soul is not married to Yahweh and able to hear His voice through the Son … each possessed by His adonay … then no souls will find the salvation that promises eternal life.
Amos was one of a few souls that served Yahweh totally. He was not of priestly pedigree, being just an ordinary guy. He never attended any seminaries and he never was given papers of ordination to go to Amaziah and tell him what Yahweh told him to go say.
That means Amos reflects one who studied to impress Yahweh with his commitment, while the majority of the people did nothing of the such.
Amos must be seen as a creation on the sixth day, just like all the other people; but Amos was ordained by Yahweh, when Yahweh sent Amos His Son’s soul to be Amos’ “adonay.”
Can you see how his story projects there are many sinners, while there are few Saints?
<Look for nodding heads.>
Now the accompanying Psalm 52 places clear focus on wickedness. This way of life is what Yahweh sent Amos to confront.
Wickedness comes to those who reject marriage to Yahweh.
Unwritten for today’s reading pleasure is the setup in verse one that says this psalm was written as an “instruction of David,” which focused on “Doeg the Edomite going to Saul, telling him that David had found safety in the house of Ahimelech.”
While there is great depth that comes from those names stated (which I will leave for you to read what I posted on my website about Psalm 52), the simple importance to find from that setup is Saul was trying to kill David, and Doeg was helping Saul in that endeavor of evil.
That sets up the duality of good versus evil; but then David wrote in verse three: “you love evil more than good ; falseness ׀ rather than speaking righteousness .”
When one contemplates the spirituality of this psalm, going beyond the meaning of a physical story, to hear “you love evil more than good,” this speaks of a spiritual relationship. The element of “love” goes beyond an emotional attraction of the flesh and speaks of the desire to please that is the bond of spiritual marriage between a soul and a deity.
In this psalm are found two uses of “el,” which is the singular form of “elohim.” Rather than be stating Yahweh, it is stating the root spirit that becomes a soul’s “lord.”
It is the singular “el” that reflects one’s inner “god” of divine possession – like the adonay of Amos. However, one “el” does not make that statement, if not connected in divine text to “Yahweh.”
That means the “el” David sang of is one of the ‘elohim” of Genesis 1, who were the spirits, angels, and physical laws of the universe, from which the Creation was carried out. Because of the fall after Yahweh made Adam and instructed His elohim to serve mankind, rather than abuse it, a singular “el” can be for good or for evil.
An evil “el” – as painted in this Psalm 52 – is one that reflects a demonic possession.
It makes a man “boast of self-strength.” It tries to bring “destruction” to those souls (like David), using lies and deceit.
It is their “love” of “evil more than good” that makes them speak the evil of their demonic “lord,” so material rewards can be received.
The price a soul pays for such service to Satan will come when their souls leave their flesh and they face the Judgment of Yahweh – when Yahweh “will pluck out of dwelling place and uproot from the flesh of the living.”
To differentiate between one “el” and the divine presence and possession of Yahweh (and His Son reborn), David wrote the word “elohim” three times, in verses seven and eight.
Verse seven sings: “behold! the man , not set elohim , his strength and his trust in abundance of his riches .” That not only sings of Doeg and Saul, but of all souls who would try to defeat Yahweh by bringing “destruction” upon His servants.
By not marrying one’s soul to Yahweh and receiving His elohim, then one’s soul can only find strength in the material realm, which is fleeting. There is no eternal value to be found from rejecting Yahweh.
In verse eight David wrote “elohim” twice, singing : “but I like an olive tree green in the house elohim ; I trust in the goodness elohim forever and ever .” That speaks of eternal life beyond the physical realm.
To align this companion psalm to the vision shown Amos by his “adonay Yahweh,” David sang of the “fruit that feeds and reproduces.” That says a soul alone in its body of flesh (or one demonically possessed and led to try and destroy good) is like “summer fruit.” It is seedless.
The presence of a divine “elohim” is the seed that feeds the future generations. Without leaving that seed behind, one’s selfishness “loves evil more than good” and turns to useless rot.
Can you see this in David’s Psalm 52?
<Look for nodding heads.>
That brings us to the Track 2 Old Testament reading from Genesis 18, which tells of Abraham being visited by three men.”
This, as with all divine Scripture, needs to be read as a Spiritual encounter, much more than as the literal projection coming from the English translations that show the imagery of a physical encounter between Abraham and three “angels.”
This reading selection must be read in the same light as Amos, where his writing, “adonay Yahweh showed me a basket of summer fruit.” Here, Abraham was shown the Trinity entering his “dwelling,” for the purpose of telling him what Yahweh had to say.
By opening one’s eyes to this reading like that, one sees everything written speaks about a vision Abraham had while dreaming. Everything about this dream presents an aspect of Abraham’s soul, projected as others within his sphere of influence.
The oak tree [or turpentine tree] reflects the branches of souls in flesh that had sacrificed unto Yahweh in divine marriage, such that Abraham was one of the divine lineage of Adam – possessed so strength from an adonay within.
The haste that Abraham tried to please his divine visitor [one adonay in three shapes of Abraham – a man] shows how devoted Abraham was to serve Yahweh. It says Abraham projects the great pleasure that Amos must have also felt within his soul, whenever “adonay” appeared to show his soul something new.
To prepare a meal that involved the sacrifice of a young bull, along with freshly made bread, speaks of the Abraham trying to demonstrate to Yahweh how much he had recalled the divine guidance given to him over the years.
It is important to see the haste of Abraham as being very similar to the business of Martha, when Jesus came to her “dwelling.”
Within the “tent” is said to be Sarah. Sarah is a soul Abraham is responsible for, as one who shares what Yahweh tells him. Sarah then is a reflection of the bread fed to Abraham having been shared with Sarah. As a dream projection of Abraham’s soul, Sarah represents one who shared the making of spiritual bread through their dutiful response to Yahweh.
Sarah reflects Abraham as a wife soul to Yahweh. Within the soul of Abraham is hidden away the soul of a Saint, who (like Amos going to confront Ahimelech) eagerly does what Yahweh tells him to do.
This should be seen as a reflection of the relationship between Martha and Mary, as sisters. In the same way, Martha served Jesus, with Mary an extension of her soul that reflected an urgency that served Jesus as a wife of Yahweh.
When the Spirit (three men now projected as one) asked Abraham, “Where is Sarah your wife?” Sarah was a reflection of Abraham’s servitude to Yahweh as His wife-soul. It was that servitude that made Abraham’s soul be responsible for another soul, which his soul sheltered.
This means the promise that Sarah would experience “a return to you in due time of living , a son Sarah your wife .” That says she would have her own adonay returned to her soul, because she had believed in Yahweh through her husband.
In addition to a physical son for both Abraham and Sarah to raise, Sarah would become like Abraham when that birth came. The soul of Isaac would be under her soul’s “tent” of responsibility, in the same way her soul had been under Abraham’s “dwelling.”
Can you see this Spiritual meaning rising from this reading?
<Look for nodding heads.>
Keeping in mind this sixth Sunday after Pentecost is heavily placing focus on this failure to marry one’s soul to Yahweh and receive His Son within one’s soul, as one’s “adonay” or “Lord,” this reading from Genesis shows what it is like to be like Amos, Abraham and David … even Saran and Isaac … while it understood that this most holy branch of Saints (“the oaks of Mamre,” where “Mamre” means “From Seeing,” amid “Adversity”) stands out as not like the vast majority.
The sixth Sunday places much focus on the “wicked;” and, Psalm 15 should be seen as the compliment to the total subjection of Abraham as those who totally reject Yahweh.
David begins by singing out questions, the first of which asks, “Who can dwell in Yahweh’s tabernacle?”
Before we get into that, let me ask everyone her, “Who has heard pastors, priests or ministers give the impression that there can only be one “Jesus Christ,” such that Christians are little more than believers in that singularity as the only “Son of God”?
<Look for everyone’s hand raised.>
That is false teaching; and, that is how one should read this question posed by David. It is not David – a soul made a Messiah by the outpouring of Yahweh’s Spirit upon his soul, forever Baptized of that Spirit – asking a question that idiotically rejects the reality that “Most everyone rejects being a tabernacle to Yahweh.
Those souls who attempt to justify their rejection of Yahweh asks such a question, as if saying, “No human beings can possibly live as righteous as Yahweh.”
The follow-up question – “Who it will dwell in mountain your sacredness?” – likewise says, “Nobody can truly be a Saint that lives forever.”
This questions how anyone can ever truly believe in an “adonay Yahweh” as being anything more than an English translation service says: “Lord God” (NRSV & KJV) or “Sovereign Lord” (NIV).
Who can explain what adonay and elohim mean, so it makes souls be moved to have faith in being Saints?
The questions posed in verse one must be read spiritually, not as if David was asking a question that could physically be answered. That means his soul was led by the Spirit of Yahweh [his adonay] to ask questions of self-importance.
Remember, in Psalm 52 David was led to give “instructions” about the dangers of being those who were so self-important that they plotted to “destroy” those souls married to doing “good,” as opposed to being married to evil.
In verse two, David sang the truth of all who never were so bold as to question their divine possession by Yahweh, led by His adonay placed within their souls.
David sang, “he walking complete and acting righteousness ; and speaking faithfulness from his (or her) inner man .” The Hebrew word meaning “inner man” also means “mind” and “heart;” but for all intent and purposes it means “adonay Yahweh.”
The word translated as “walking complete” becomes a statement that anyone who does not dwell with Yahweh, as a tabernacle unto Him, is one soul “walking incomplete.”
This is the truth of Jesus whispering to his disciples, saying, “Peace.” The word translated as “Peace” means “Peace of Mind, Quietness, and Rest,” but it properly means, “wholeness, i.e. when all essential parts are joined together.”
That means “walking complete” is a soul rejoined to Yahweh, so His Son’s soul possessing such a wife-soul becomes that “Peace” leading one’s soul-flesh in “acting righteousness.”
Without this complete commitment to serving Yahweh (versus serving self or an evil el), verse three says one walking incomplete uses his or her tongue to badmouth others. It is like Doeg and Saul trying to kill one whose “love of good” had one “acting righteousness.”
In verse five, David placed focus on “his money” or “his silver.” This says souls are routinely sold for thirty pieces of silver, just as Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus … in the same way Doeg reported to Saul where David was hiding out.
This song sings of those who reject Yahweh in marriage and do evil deeds. This says only the select few will be able to dwell with an adonay leading their souls to eternal life.
Can you see this view of Psalm 15?
<Look for nodding heads.>
That takes us to the reading selection fro Colossians 1, which is most profound. To go into the depth that Paul wrote – as a soul divinely inspired by his adonay Jesus – is impossible to present as a bus stop sermon.
I welcome everyone to read what I wrote and posted on my website, with the prior warning that I only interpreted verses 15 through 24. To read that mush demands one not be questioning, “Yahweh, who will dwell as a tabernacle unto you?”
Those who reject divine marriage to Yahweh reject giving up one iota of their self-importance; so, they usually do not have enough time for all that “You must be the resurrection of Jesus in your own soul to be Saved” stuff.
Still, the profound meaning of this reading selection is just that: Becoming Jesus resurrected.
Just to ‘skim over’ some of the depth presented:
Verse fifteen says: “He exists likeness of this of God of this of unseen , firstborn of all of creation”. “He” is Jesus, who was made by the hand of Yahweh (in Genesis 2), thus the “firstborn of this of God.” “He” is then within the “likeness” of a human form, such that flesh again walks righteously in the world as Jesus reborn. The soul of Jesus is “unseen,” because it is spiritual … like Yahweh and like one of His souls.
This verse says Jesus exists within one’s soul, resurrected as Yahweh elohim – Adam’s soul reborn into flesh.
Verse seventeen then says: “Kai his soul [himself] he exists in front of [before or ahead of] of all (possessed souls) , kai these all within to his soul [to himself] he stands near [he is composed of, in union, together with] .” This means one’s flesh wears the “face” of Yahweh, which fulfills the First Commandment: Thou shall wear no other gods before my face.”
That means the first rule for a wife-soul of Yahweh is to wear His “face before” one’s fleshy face, which is the Spiritual mask of divine union – Baptism as a Christ, resurrected as His Son’s soul possessing one from within. Because the soul of Yahweh elohim takes possession of one’s soul-flesh, one is then led by adonay Yahweh.
Verse eighteen then says: “kai his soul it exists this head [or ruler, lord] of this of flesh [or of body] , of this of assembly [or of congregation, of church] , which he exists (this) beginning , firstborn from out of of these of dead [or that subjected to death] in order that he might be born [or he might come into being] within to all (souls) his soul [or himself] to have the first place [or hold preeminence] .”
This says Jesus becomes one’s inner “Master” or “Lord.” This is the meaning of adonay written in Amos and David, while also the “elohim” of David.
To translate “sōmatos” as only meaning “of body” and “ekklēsias” only as “of church” misses the point of an individual soul in a body of flesh being exactly the same as all other individuals in bodies of flesh that equally submit completely to Yahweh. This makes the “head” of all be the Mind of Jesus, where all are equally Christs. This defines “Christian” as all whose “head” – or adonay – is Jesus, because they have been Baptized by the Spirit of Yahweh.
The word “body” says “flesh,” as this is a statement of a soul sacrificing its rule over its body of flesh to the adonay that is Jesus. To translate “church” confuses pew-dwellers (those refusing to submit their souls to Yahweh and become His Son resurrected), as they all think the “church” is where they lay their butts. Each body of “flesh” becomes a “church,” with the totality of all who are alike being a great “assembly” or “congregation” that answers the question, “Yahweh who can dwell as a tabernacle unto you?
The use of “beginning” says no one is saved until they have married Yahweh and received the outpouring of His Spirit upon their souls, which makes each soul then become a Messiah or a Christ. That means “Anointed” by Yahweh. This is the “beginning in which he exists” within a wife-soul.
The “firstborn” is the soul of Adam, which is also the soul of Jesus. To become Jesus reborn means to be taken “from out of” souls possessed “of these of dead,” which means souls unmarried to Yahweh, or soul demonically wed to Satan. Those souls are set upon a path of “death,” not eternal life.
To read, “that he might be born within … to all his soul … to have first place” says the “beginning” is when one is “reborn as Jesus.” It says a soul has received his soul within, with every such soul exactly duplicated. Yahweh can resurrect the soul of His Son countless times, all at the same time. In every soul where Jesus is reborn, he will become the Lord and Master of that soul-flesh, as his will comes “first.”
Verse twenty then says: “kai on account of of his soul [of himself] to reconcile these all into his soul [himself]”. This says divine possession by the Son of Yahweh means “reconciliation” for all past sins, thereby the promise of eternal life is gained. Reconciliation comes from the Baptism by Yahweh’s Spirit, which purifies one’s soul to a virgin state, so it can become the womb in which the soul of Adam-Jesus is resurrected.
Verse twenty then is found continuing, saying: “having reconciled on account of of this of blood of this of upright stake [or cross] of his soul [or of himself] , on account of of his soul [“or of himself] , if these upon of this of flesh [or of earth] , if these within to these to divine spirits [or to heavens] .”
This says the “cross” is Spiritual and within a soul, “staking it upright,” so it walks a path of righteousness while in the flesh on earth. It cannot be mistaken for the ole rugged crucifix of death. The only value in that is it was the release of Jesus’ soul so it could be resurrected countless times in the soul of Yahweh’s wife-souls.
The “blood” is the outpouring of Yahweh’s Spirit that then makes one a ‘blood-relative’ of Yahweh via being reborn as the Son.
Verse twenty-one then says: “formerly existing estranged kai hostile to this to understanding within to these to works to these to evil .” This says the future life walked on earth will be in the name of Jesus (as a Christ of Yahweh), as his soul reborn into a physical form. There will be no return to the “works of evil.”
It also states the duality of those whose love of good is compared to those whose love is for evil. There is no salvation for those who retain more love of evil than good.
Again, Paul is filled by the soul of Jesus when he writes; and, to even begin to understand its great depth of meaning, one’s soul must likewise be reborn as Jesus. Rather than ask if everyone understands this deeper meaning in Colossians 1, I will simply move on to the Gospel reading from Luke 10.
Again, to read this short selection in physical terms, one sees Jesus visit Martha and Mary and hears Martha complain about Mary.
There is much more meaning coming from reading this in spiritual terms, where we did the same with Abraham meeting the “three men” in Genesis 18.
This reading begins with a divinely elevated statement about what is “Within” those who traveled with Jesus, which is known because verse thirty-eight begins with a capitalized “En.” That which is “Within” those “traveling with his soul” is the soul of Jesus.
It is then this possessing soul spirit that “entered into a village certain,” which means it is a place where known Jews had “welcomed” the soul of Jesus.
This is a similar statement to Abraham resting under an oak tree, when he “looked up” [divinely saw] divine visitors. Likewise, we are told “a certain woman named Martha welcomed Jesus into her dwelling.
Now, not presented by the NRSV translation is the parentheses that surround “into her dwelling.” The parentheses is a signal that we are no longer talking about a physical building, but Martha ‘welcomes Jesus into her tabernacle of dwelling,” which is her own soul.
This is the same welcoming all souls are to make to Yahweh, which becomes the ‘school of learning’ that proves one’s soul is seriously in love with Him and desires to marry Him Spiritually.
While I was writing about the meaning of the written words, I was led to see how the meaning here related to the parable Jesus told about the Ten Bridesmaids and the Sheep and Goats.
Both of those parables place focus on the duality of those who are good and those who are evil, when ALL of the pools are those who say they believe in Yahweh. Both good and bad bridesmaids are engaged to marry Yahweh and both good (sheep) and bad (goats) souls are thought to serve as Jesus reborn.
It is the duality of contenders versus pretenders. Can you see this as a reflection of Martha and Mary?
<Look for nodding heads.>
Well, just like we saw Abraham run inside his “tent” to find Sarah, to tell her divine guests were present, so do wifely chores, this story reflects on Martha doing the same. She began running around within her dwelling, so her soul could prove how much she loved a visit from Jesus.
This means that – just like Sarah was an extension of Abraham’s soul in the Old Testament selection – Mary is an extension of the soul of Martha. This needs to be grasped.
Now, while it gives the impression that Martha was busy trying to do everything to serve Jesus a meal and Mary was just lounging lazily at the feet of Jesus, that is the wrong impression to get. Both Martha and her soul’s extension as her sister Mary were souls “having sat down at the feet of the Lord.”
That capitalized word “Lord” is the same as saying both Martha and Mary recognized Jesus’ soul “Within” as their adonay Yahweh.
The point of focus in this lesson today is then the part of Martha’s soul that wanted to please Jesus was “too busy” trying to please Jesus, when her soul should find “Peace” and “Wholeness” “sitting at the feet of Jesus,” where her soul could listen to the words” Jesus spoke.
The divine angel that visited Abraham came with a divine message. The appearance of the adonay Yahweh came to Amos with divine message. Every Psalm written by David was Yahweh’s Spirit coming to his soul with a divine message. Likewise, Jesus came to the soul of Martha with a divine message … but she was “too busy” to “sit at his feet and listen” to what that message was.
As bad as that is, Martha then “stood up,” which is a symbolic statement that says her soul pretended to be an equal (if not a superior soul) to Jesus’ soul. She then begins to made “commands” to Jesus, telling his soul to release the soul of her sister, so Mary could listen to Marth, rather than Jesus.
This is Marth acting like a goat, not a sheep. It is Marth having a lamp that has run out of the oil of truth, because she became to busy to listen to that oil of truth, when it naturally came to fill her lamp.
This makes Marth be a female parallel character to Peter, who often “stood up” to Jesus and tried to tell Jesus what to do. Both become models of what not to become in today’s world, which is self-important and too busy to pay attention to the details of Scripture.
When Martha began telling Jesus what to do to please her will, Jesus’ soul told her soul it had become “distracted,” as her soul was “concerned with too much.” This is how today’s modern world becomes a “distraction” to souls, where all the illusions shown as ‘visions of sugar plums dancing in the heads” of those seeking material profits, instead of eternal salvation of a soul, keep one’s soul from “sitting down beside the feet of Jesus and listening to what his soul says Scripture really means.”
Jesus then told Martha’s soul that not being like Mary – in love with pleasing Yahweh through His Son – meant not choosing to follow the “good part” can mean the “good part will be taken away from her soul.”
That means to keep on being “distracted concerning much” will become the reality of a Judgment where one thought one served Jesus – as a sheep – only to be sorted into the goat group. Those get thrown into the outer darkness where there is a gnashing of teeth.
As Homer Simpson would say, “Doh!”
Well, I see the bus has come and gone; but there will be another coming shortly.
Thank you all for staying and listening. I pray you will take this message to heart and ponder on the meaning I have spoke; and, I hope you will do more study on your own.
I wish you all well as today goes by; and, I look forward to seeing your again next Sunday.
