the Church is not Israel

It is in the death flow 10:18 AM Wednesday morning. It is another hot day so our A/C is running full steam. I like a cold dark cell in this world filled with madness.

I got up this morning around 6:13 AM. I drank coffee made last night and a bowl of cereal for breakfast. After breakfast I messed with our main computer and then wrote in my paper diary.

I have not really read anything this morning, but only looked at these books-

"The Epistle to the Romans" [The New International Greek Testament Commentary] by Richard N. Longenecker

"1-2 Samuel, 1-2 Kings, 1-2 Chronicles" Old Testament V [Reformation Commentary On Scripture] Edited By Derek Cooper & Martin J. Lohrmann

"The Letter To The Hebrews" [The Pillar New Testament Commentary] by Peter T. O'Brien

"God has Spoken in his Son: A biblical theology of Hebrews" [New Studies In Biblical Theology] by Peter T. O'Brien

Carol has come home from work and gone to bed for the day. She is off from work the next two nights.

I have no plans for the day ahead of me. I am not sure if I am in the right state of being to leave my cell this morning. This afternoon the fellow we hired to paint our lower level new bathroom is coming by to paint so I have to be here. I will be here because I have to guard our homestead from being attacked by wild gangs of barbarians.

The last book I read last night before going to bed was a book titled, "The Glory Of The Empire A Novel, A History" by Jean D'Ormesson.

Last night I also made a Bible Rant video for my BookTube channel. I do not like making Bible Rant videos because I am sure I come off as being an old Bible thumper.

I will close to look at my books.

"[8] For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
[9] Not of works, lest any man should boast.
[10] For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
[11] Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;
[12] That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
[13] But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
[14] For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
[15] Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;
[16] And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
[17] And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.
[18] For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
[19] Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
[20] And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
[21] In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
[22] In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit." Ephesians 2:8-22
