LORD = YHVH
Updated: Aug 31, 2019
I had a wonderful time and was blessed by our overview of Revelation, just as I am whenever I am privileged to share God's word with my beloved brothers and sisters in Christ.
The audio and video both came out pretty terrible, but I will soon post the PowerPoint with narration so all the info will be here.
Meanwhile, I have been asked about the short video on the message hidden under all the thousands of instances where the upper case LORD is used on the bible in place of the ancient Hebrew letters represented by the English letters YHVH (or YHWH) in your bible.
I got this some time ago from Rock Island Beacon (rockislandbeacon.org) but I can't find it on the site anymore. You might want to sign up for their mailing list as they do send out devotionals which is how I got this. So, here it is:
Remember that the black characters he is drawing are the ancient Sumerian roots for the Hebrew characters, and the relationship between these is fuzzy. I cannot vouch for the accuracy of the interpretation rendered here but it does fit my understanding.

Physically, "You ARE what you EAT" as our bodies are built from the food we have assimilated, If you eat healthy food, you will build a healthy body. If you eat poison ...

Google is an excellent tool, but you MUST test what receive against the full counsel of God's word because if you consume the spiritual poison that Satan has covered with sweet chocolate ...
An organizational note: Jeremy had asked us to have a sign-in sheet, which I totally forgot. I also don't have the phone number and email addresses of everyone that was there. If I have your email, you will get a notice of when something is posted here. All of the notes and PowerPoints from the study will be posted here, maybe even video an audio if I ever get the gadgets to work correctly. The surest way is to make sure you get notified is to click the signup link below.
Thank you all for celebrating God's word with me and partaking of the promised blessing. I will post the narrated PowerPoint from last night's Revelation Overview as soon as possible. I look forward to seeing you again next Thursday in room 204. Teaching starts promptly at 7:30 PM. I will be there at 7:00 PM and will start worship as soon as I am set up.
See you then! (As long as we're not in the middle of a hurricane!)
