“Seek ye the LORD while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.” – Isaiah 55:6-7
G’day! Byron the Quokka here, reminding you that we have a comment contest going–and there aren’t any bloomin’ comments yet today!
Only 984 comments to go, to get to No. 47,000, and the reader who posts it wins… oh, one of those autographed books he’s always giving out. Anyone can play, as many times as you like, and all comments are eligible, except [riffles through rulebook; clears throat]–
“Comments abusive to anyone else on this site; comments containing blasphemy or profanity; commercials thinly disguised as comments; comments simply too inane to bother with.”
My cousin Lucy likes inane comments, but she’s the only one.
So let’s see how fast we can get to 47,000! And later today I’ll run up Question No. 4 in the Bell Mountain Trivia Contest.
(I hope these generate some excitement soon! This is my first job ever, and I don’t want to…
There is no other God than God. He is the Great God. He is ruler of the heavens, creator of all things and the high judge. He is all-merciful, kind to the brokenhearted and always forgiving. His love is greater than all the love we could ever have for anyone. His joy is endless.
“Clap your hands, all peoples! Shout to God with loud songs of joy! For the Lord, the Most High, is to be feared, a great king over all the earth.” (Psalms 47:1-2)
The greatness of His grace is beyond measure, for He gave His son Jesus as a sacrifice to pay for all our sins. As true as the sun rises and the sun sets, so is God’s love for His children. His love for us never fails. From age to age, His deeds are witness to His greatness. The oceans came together by His…
G’day, mates! Byron the Quokka here, with some clarification about our Bell Mountain Trivia Contest.
I don’t know how the rumor got started, or who started it, but there are not going to be any essay questions in this contest. My cousin Bengay is crazy about essay questions. He turns everything into an essay question. Ask him what’s the bloomin’ time, and he gives you an essay.
We don’t need that in the contest, do we? Short answers are the best. And by the way, here are the answers to the first two questions:
One, the best wine in Obann comes from Durmurot; and two, Martis’ horse is named Dulayl. Question No. 3–who called himself the king of Lintum Forest?–is still in play, and Question No. 4 will come up by and by. There will be 20 questions. The reader with the most right answers gets a gold watch with…
My allergies are killing me again, and somehow I just can’t get up for covering any more nooze. So it’s time to hand over to Byron the Quokka…
G’day, mates! Byron the Quokka here, with Bell Mountain trivia question No. 3. I hope some more of you will play–nothing quite so blah as a game that nobody plays. And remember, the winner gets a bicycle–oops! I mean an autographed book.
Let me hit you with a question that’s only a little bit hard.
Question: Who was the outlaw who called himself “the king of Lintum Forest”?
I’ve never met another quokka who couldn’t answer this one, but the contest’s only open to you humans. Don’t ask me why. I guess we just like to see you folks enjoy yourselves. And we’re tryin’ to help Lee sell some books.
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. 2 Corinthians 5:17
What does it mean to be Born Again? (John 3:3) This is a concept that a lot of Christians seem to have trouble understanding. You are not saved by your religious affiliations, you are not saved by the amount of money you put into the offering plate, and your not saved by doing community service, you are saved by faith through Jesus Christ only!
Now when you truly accept Jesus as your Lord, something begins to happen, you become Born Again. You are baptized with the Holy Spirit and the sanctification process starts to begin. This is how you become a New Creature through Christ
The old things pass away, meaning your old sinful lifestyle. No longer are you a slave to the sins that trap…
Nominate at least 5 bloggers and inform them of their nomination.
Give them 10 new questions to answer.
And here are the questions given to me by Lydia Potter:
What is the first thing you notice about a person? The first thing I notice is that person’s face. Then I try to remember that face so that I will recognize that person when we meet again.
What are some challenges you think the next generation will face? The next generation might have a hard time finding jobs since artificial intelligence is getting so high-tech that it’s taking the jobs away from humans. There are many other problems in the world, but God is in sovereign control, and we need not worry.
What is your favorite season and why? I like winter. Well, I think the atmosphere of the season is nice, and it gets nice and cozy in the house with the heater going and the coffee brewing. When it’s cold, we can adjust our body temperature by putting more layers on, but in summer, we can’t do that, and centipedes come out of hiding, so I don’t like summer. And also it feels comfortable in my heavy blankets when I sleep in winter.
If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? Definitely not fried centipedes, but probably my choice would be taco rice. Once you start eating that it’s unstoppable.
What’s the number one item you would save from your burning house? I would save my translation work. I can’t afford to have all that hard work burned in the flames.
What makes you laugh the most? These fabulous funny videos, listed in Top-3 order!!!
#3 – I Like Orange Juice(Warning: it’s rather ridiculous)
For we know that if the earthly tent which is our house is torn down, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 2 Corinthians 5:1
Our Earthly Tent which is our bodies is being torn down. Everyday regardless of what you believe, our physical bodies are dying. Some of us suffer disabilities or diseases, for many our daily lives are not easy. However there is hope through Jesus Christ. When our temporary bodies pass away we will be given a Building from God which is our eternal resurrected bodies
For indeed in this house we groan, longing to be clothed with our dwelling from heaven, inasmuch as we, having put it on, will not be found naked. 2 Corinthians 5:2-3 Some people cling on to this world while other suffer and groan waiting for the day to be called home. To…
