The Villager Voice ~ from Alan

A little light-hearted Bible study today, in light of the Civil High Holy Day of the Sub-Celestial World occurring this Sunday.

As you’ve heard me repeat on a number of occasions, there are times the Bible speaks perfectly clearly for itself; it has no need for commentators or sermonizers to interpret.  The following passage from the eighth chapter of the prophet Daniel is yet another case in point:

As I was watching, a male GOAT appeared… coming across the face of the whole earth without touching the ground. The GOAT had a horn between its eyes. It came towards the Ram with the two horns that I had seen standing beside the river, and it ran at it with savage force. I saw it approaching the Ram. It was enraged against it and struck the Ram, breaking its two horns. The Ram did not have power to withstand it; the GOAT threw the Ram down to the ground and trampled upon it, and there was no one who could rescue the Ram from the GOAT’s power.

As Jesus would say, “Let those who have ears to hear, hear.”

Go Pats.
