Who will give us meat to eat?

    To the Household of God, Israel... and all those who go with... may you all have peace!

    Man, it's pretty tough out here in this "wilderness", isn't it? Hot, dry, dusty... no meat... only the wretched manna and lukewarm water. And all this WANDERING about! In circles, even! What is up with THAT?

    True, the "cucumbers, watermelons, leeks, onions, and garlic" were "tasty" to our flesh. But are they really more desirable than the "manna"... the daily bread from heaven? And the fermented wines of the nations around surely seem appetizing, even making the mouth water. But are they truly more desirable... than the 'water' from the rock-mass?

    Did the Most Holy One of Israel really call His Household out of "slavery"... only to leave it to perish in the "wilderness"? Or will He not keep His promise and lead that House... by HIS Light... all the way to the "promised land"?

    One only knows as to himself or herself what ones level of faith is/will be.

    I get it that you are tired. HE understands you are tired. Which is why you MUST eat... and drink: to keep your strength up.

    I bid you peace, one and all!

    Servant to the Household of God, Israel, and all those who go with... and a slave of Christ,

    Vegetarianism is much healthier than eating meat...

    I'm not supposed to be posting her until December, and I've been limiting my posts, and have done absolutey no threads, but tonight...........all bets are off. It's Friday, I don't have to go to work, I aint goin out in field service, and guess what? I absolutely massacred a half slab of Jack Daniels Ribs and Cajun Fried Shrimp. I'm not trying to hear any of that vegetarian nonsense tonight. Shelby, The Lawd has given me a premonition, and it says this written all over it.............................. This is the meat I want in due season.

    Shelby, thank you! That was wonderful. You know how sometimes you can read something (or think, or receive something) and calm just comes over you. That's what this did for me.

    Peae and great love to you,

    I tried going meatless, but every time I encountered red, juicy meat, my fangs popped out.

    I tried, I really did.

    LOL at No Room For George and White Dove!!

    Now, would somebody PLEASE explain this saying that the Watchtower is SO fond of:

    "Meat in due season".... IF that is a correct quote...

    WHat? Were they growing steaks like vegetables? Did the wildebeast herds only thunder by in the spring - or autumn???

    Uh, never mind....

    I think I just figured it out, all by myself. As a daughter of a former rancher and granddaughter of TWO sets of ranching couples, I should have seen it earlier...

    But when the Watchtower uses it, I'll bet that THEY have no clue!!
