THE FALL OF JUDAH

 

  Zedekiah was the last king of Judah. He was set up as a puppet king for Babylon`s king Nebuchadnezzar. He refused to pay tribute money to Nebuchadnezzar, and Jerusalem was besieged.
      The prophet Jerimiah was the prophet who prophesied Jerusalem would be destroyed. Jerimiah was called the weeping prophet because of his book: Laminations. He wrote in his book how Judah fell.
After Nebuchadnezzar sieged Jerusalem and took over Judah, he deported most of the Judeans to Babylon. the exact number is 46,000 Judeans. There were two prophets among them, Ezekiel, and Daniel.
     Ezekiel was a priest before he was a prophet. While the fake prophets said there was still hope for Jerusalem, Ezekiel said that things would be worse for the second group of people being brought to Babylon. He also acted out his prophesies, and God called him “Son of Man.”
     Daniel was brought to Babylon with three friends, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. They are different from the Babylonian youths, because they chose to obey God and not eat the king’s food but ate vegetables and drank water. God had given Daniel the ability to interrupt dreams, because of this he was quickly promoted in the king`s court.

What happens to people who don’t do what God tell them to?

The book of the Bible, Jonah, can answer this question pretty easily. In Jonah, Jonah is called directly from God and runs away. In case you don’t know the story, I will tell you the story.

          The Lord came to Jonah and said “go to the great city of Nineveh and preach to it, because its wickedness has come up before me.” But Jonah ran and he found a boat that would take him far far away from Nineveh.

          While he was on the boat the weather changed. It started to rain and before he knew what happened, it was thundering. The crewmen and Jonah drew lots to see who God was mad at. Jonah was the one who lost and he was thrown overboard.

          But Jonah didn’t drown. God sent a whale to swallow him. For a few days Jonah lived in the whale’s stomach and prayed. Then God told him that he could repent against his sin. He told Jonah to do that he would need to go to Nineveh and preach. Jonah understood he was wrong and went to Nineveh.

He ran from Nineveh because he was scared of the people there. But he went back knowing God would help him. That is God’s power and if we don’t listen to him we won’t reach heaven. And every time we sin we walk away from heaven. But if we believe that he is with us and will help us we will go to heaven

my favorite fruit

 

My favorite fruit is the Gala Apple. It is sweet and hard. The gala apple is in the apple family in the pome family. Its scientific name is Malus domestica ‘Gala’ meaning (surprise) Gala Apple. Its genus is the Malus family.

More about Gala

 

In April, light pink buds turn into white and pink flowers. In August, the fruit start to ripen and firm, crisp, and sweet fruit is what is to come, all fall. The gala apple is one of the most popular apples. It can be stored for six months. It is very easy to grow as well as very adaptable.

I like the gala apple because, well it is the best apple we have here……. and it rhymes with my name! it is sweet but hard. I LOVE APPLES

God’s Sovereignty

When he was with his father, Jacob he was favored beyond his brothers. While they were tending sheep, Joseph was learning how to read, speak, and write Egyptian, and other languages. His brothers grew jealous of Joseph and plotted to kill him. But Ruben told them they should put him in a hole, Ruben was going to save Joseph while their brothers went home. Not knowing of these other intentions his brothers agreed, after they had trapped him, they sold him, their own brother, to Egyptian slave traders and painted the cloak their father had given Joseph with lamb’s blood.

Joseph was treated very cruelly by the slave traders, being forced to walk by the camels. When they got to Egypt Joseph was sold to Potiphar, the pharaohs general. He was quickly the head servant in Potiphar`s house.

Potiphar`s wife lied to Potiphar about Joseph. And Potiphar had Joseph thrown into prison. But Joseph stayed strong in prison. While he was in prison, pharaoh`s discharged cup-bearer and baker both had a dream. The cub-bearer told Joseph his dream “In my dream I saw a vine in front of me, and on the vine were three branches. As soon as it budded it blossomed, and its clusters ripened into grapes. Pharaoh`s cup was in my hand, and I took the grapes, squeezed them into pharaoh`s cup and put the cup in his hand.”

Joseph interrupted this dream to mean the cup-bearer would be reinstated in the pharaohs house. The baker, hearing favored results told Joseph his dream “I too had a dream: On my head there were three baskets of bread. In the top basket there were all kinds of baked goods for Pharaoh, but the birds were eating them out of the basket out of my head.” Joseph interrupted this dream to mean the baker would be hanged and the birds would eat his flesh.

Just as he predicted the cup-bearer was reinstated and the baker was hanged. Two years later the pharaoh had two dreams and called Joseph from prison to interrupt his dreams. Joseph interrupted his dreams to mean that there would be 7 years of good crops and 7 years of famine. He told Pharaoh that a part of the crops should be put aside for the years of famine. Pharaoh put him in charge of collecting and giving out some of the crops. His brothers went to get food during the famine years, they did not recognize Joseph, but Joseph recognized them and gave them food, and told them they could not come back for more, till they brought their younger brother, Benjamin with them. They brought Benjamin with them and Joseph locked him in prison. He was seeing if his brothers had changed since he had last seen them. They said to put them in prison but not Benjamin. Joseph revealed himself to his brother they were frightened he would take revenge for what they did. But he said “you meant it for evil, but God meant it for good.”

He meant that God fits and does everything for our good. That’s not how Joseph planned his life. He never would have planned to be a slave or go to prison but with god he rose to the second most powerful man in Egypt.

God’s Revelation

I see God`s general revelation everywhere, I don’t know how the ancient civilizations could not, would not, look around and realize that there is a god who made the world, and them. God made this world wonderfully, and those who cannot tell that are blind!

In the earth I see it in the way that God made it perfect for us to live in. In the sun how God put us just close enough to get sun light and not get over heated. In the moon how God put it close so we have a light at night. In the stars how God made them so beautifully and perfect and made them companions for the moon. In the trees how God made them strong and useful. In the volcanos, how God made them so they could make islands, and how they show His power. In the clouds how God made them white and variable in size and shape. In the flowers how God shows his beauty in them and varies their looks and colors.

I think the ancient civilizations went wrong because they didn’t want to do what God told them to do. I know I respond differently from the ancient civilizations who ignored God. Because if God told me to do something I would try to my best ability to do it.

when I was on the Tower of Babel

 

I was working on the on the fifty-sixth floor of the tower of Babel. Most people think that there were only twenty-three floors, but we got to sixty-four.  It was just me and this kid called “Tom”. after a while I got thirsty and I took a sip of water.

I asked him if he wanted some water, He looked at me like I had just asked if he had a Dragon I could borrow. I asked again, he replied, but in a foreign tongue. I was confused and ran down the stairs there was a guy who was speaking fast in another language, one different from what I understood and the tongue that Tom was speaking. I pointed to a lady who spoke the same tongue and went outside.

There were people speaking my normal language, calling for people who spoke my language I went over to them we talked for a while and then headed north-east and came to a land called Russia. Russia was beautiful and cold. The snow fell and we built castles out of ice. We ice skated and built snow men. It was amazing!

Railway Children: A Book Report

When the book starts Roberta, Peter, and Phyllis are very rich but then they have to move to the countryside. Their new house, The Three Chimneys, is a new and quite remarkable place for the children. They had only lived where they had everything that they would want but they would meet more adventure at The 3 Chimneys. As they have more adventures on the railway side they meet more people. This leads to Roberta finally figuring out why their father was missing.

They are called the railway children because they spend most of their time at the railway. When Roberta figures out that their father was put in prison for a crime that he did not commit she decides to tell her mother that she knows where their father was put. When her mother tells her what happed Roberta promises to not tell her siblings.

I liked the book because it had a lot of adventures and excitement. A few parts that I liked are when Peter gets hit with a rake. I think that I would have done that to my brother Jack.

Greece

My favorite part of the history world tour was the Ancient Greek part because, I like Ancient Greek mythology the stories are really well made though they are myths. There architecture was advanced and complex for that time group. What I don’t like about the Greeks is that girls and women could not vote or be taught and were considered to be dumb and the Greek god of wisdom was a GODDESS.

The Greeks worshiped many gods but the three major gods were Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades. I find it weird that the Greek god of the dead was called Hades and in Hell according to the Bible that there is a place called Hades. To Greeks who were usually at war had 2 war gods Ares and Athena. And in my mind I think that maybe they lost the war to Rome is because they worshiped false gods but the Romans weren’t much better.
