Israel is the apple of God’s eye. That is not a reference to a Cox’s Orange Pippin, but to the gry iris of the eye, which looks like an apple on end with the stalk in the middle and is the most sensitive part of the body. When anything – even a tiny speck of dust – touches that part of the eye, the eyelid clamps down to protect it. The word for ‘eyelid’ in Hebrew is usually translated in our Bibles as ‘keeper’. “The Lord is your keeper” for example, means “the Lord is your eyelid”. Anyone who touches the Lord’s people touches the most senitive part of Him and He will protect His people.

In 1921 James Bartlett was lost overboard from a whaler near the Falkland Islands. The next day the ship’s crew caught a whale, hauled it up on deck and were cutting it up with big knives when they saw something moving in the whale’s stomach. Quickly cutting the stomach open they found James Bartlett, deeply unconscious but alive! Two days later he regained consciousness. However the skin of his body that had been exposed to the whale’s digestive juices remained bleached white, whereas the clothed part of his boy retained their normal colour, and so for the rest of his life James Bartlett was pointed out because of the extraordinary appearance of his skin.

It is clear from the extracts of his (Winston Churchill) speeches that he uses very short, sharp words, “never was so much owed by so many to so few” or “I have nothing to offer you but blood, tears, toil and sweat”. now he could have said ” I have nothing to offer you but sacricfice, labour and perspiration.” “Perspiration” is the Latin word for Anglo-Saxon “sweat”. But it is clear which has the most power to touch feelings and evoke a gut reaction.

  |  0 Comments

Paul writing to the Philippians, says about his self-righteousness: “I count it but (he used a very crude Greek backstreet word, the Anglo Saxon equivalent of which is) shit.” That is what he thought of his self-righteousness. Like a little boy holding up his potty and saying, “look what I’ve done”.
