Sun Of Righteousness

Today's "Days of Praise" article from ICR was originally published on Aug 18, 1998 by its founder, Dr. Henry Morris. Here's a direct link to it on their website, but I'd like to cite interesting portions of it here:

[Malachi 4:2] is the very last of the numerous Messianic prophecies of the Old Testament. ... The Sun of righteousness clearly refers to the coming Savior, for He will come "with healing in His wings." The sun does not have wings, of course, so many commentators think this word refers to the rays of the sun, with their life-sustaining energy. However, the Hebrew word means "wings," and nothing else. It is as though the sun is rising rapidly on great wings, dispelling the world’s darkness with its light, dispensing healing to its sin-sick soul. The Sun of righteousness, of course, can be none other than God Himself...

The 2-winged icon on LMLK seals easily resolves this dispute since it has both wings AND rays!

Mr. 484

On this day in history (actually as of yesterday, March 18th, 2010), my post office box number is "484", my social security number contains "484", & now my eBay feedback rating is (temporarily) "484"!

Royal Riddle

I can't resist posting this "inside joke" for those of you who know about the big, king-related event in my life this week:

"well some thirty one well
it has a kind of question that recently by concerning the
on Friday he fears that Al sabah said
Susan contributions to candidates running for the house of lords
we've had enough to eat with plenty left over
the lord is thy people and is required is not over
it has a kind of an agenda the rules of the house of lords think you have
the holy father and the contributions and heights
and the consecrated things
and I I I mean that was the officer in charge
and his brothers in the US senate"

There are no typos in that paragraph! If you can guess the riddle, you're really knowledgeable about state-of-the-art web services!
