New YL Net


What is a YL you ask?  And what is a Net?

Well, those of you who are Amateur Radio Operators (Hams) probably know.

A YL is a "Young Lady" in CW (Morse Code) parlance (though this Net does NOT use Morse Code -- they just talk normally -- so not to worry about Morse Code. )

Also "Young Lady" includes females of all ages from very young, to young, old, older, and oldest.  Once a Licensed Ham a female is a Young Lady forever !

A Net is comprised of a group of Ham people who get together on the Radio for various reasons --

Sometimes the Net is weather related --  Or it might be for Emergency activities --Other times it is a group in a Ham Club who are chatting -- a net can be for any of a number of reasons --

In this instance -- the net is for Licensed YLs of all ages and all levels of Ham experience from Novice to Extra and everything in between.

If you are in the Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA area, you can hop onto this net using the 442.650 repeater which is located on Signal Mountain in Chattanooga.

It has a + 5000 offset and a tone of 100.

But, if you are far far away and can't 'hit' that repeater -- you can also access it using the EchoLink Node #9058  or the AllStar Node 46077.

This YL Net meets every Monday night at 8 PM  EST

If you are a Licensed Lady Amateur Radio Operator, regardless of where you are located -- please check into the Net and meet other YLs. 

And if /when you check in because you discovered this YL Net through this DIT, please let them know. Thanks.      73 and 33

Hymn: Softly and Tenderly Jesus is calling

This well known and beloved Hymn used to be sung frequently in Churches as a 'Hymn of Invitation'.

And the invitation still goes out today.

What is that invitation?

Is is to come to salvation in Jesus -
-

which then allows that person to 'come home' and live forever in Heaven with God The Father, Jesus the Son, the Holy Spirit and everyone who has accepted God's free gift of salvation.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosover believes in Him (Jesus) shall not perish but have everlasting life."

Jesus said: "I am the way, the truth, and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through Me."

Sing along with this 4 minute 31 second hymn. The words will be on the screen.

Confess your sins, Trust in Jesus to forgive your sins and accept His free gift of salvation. Give Him your life. Let Him be your God and Lord.

If you do, then when you die you will "come home" to live with Him in His Kingdom forever.

Why isn't the word Dinosaur in the Bible?

Many have asked this question.

Perhaps you have also wondered about this.

And, yes, it is true -- the word "Dinosaur" is NOT in the Bible.

Alas since dinosaurs are not mentioned in the Bible, many people think this is ‘proof’ of an ‘old earth’ of millions and millions of years.

But is that an accurate conclusion?

Actually, there is a simple reason why the term ‘dinosaur’ is not in the Bible.

So what is this simple reason? you ask.

Ok, here it is ---

Dinosaurs are not mentioned in the Bible because the name ‘Dinosaur’ was not coined until 1841.

Richard Owen was the one who originated this name.

Prior to that time they were probably called “dragons.”

To read more about this,

Why Did Jesus weep?

John 11:35 is known as the shortest verse in the Bible.

What does it say?

It says "Jesus wept."

But this is not the only place where the Bible records Jesus weeping, crying, or lamenting certain situations.

So the question is -- WHY did Jesus weep -- in the instance of the shortest verse in the Bible as well as on numerous other occasions.

For an answer to this question

A thought for the day

This was a tweet we received from a friend of DIT

We don't know if the friend wrote it or if he just posted it from another source but it is definitely worth pondering.

Here it is:

is the one sin 

that can nail the door of Hell shut behind you 

for eternity"

Language Families

In Genesis Chapter 10, the Table of Nations lists about 70 different families that were dispersed at the Tower of Babel event.

Interestingly today, even though there are almost 7000 languages, science is suggesting that there were about 70 original languages from which the current number has been derived.

Hmmmm.  Interesting.

You mean the Bible might really be true?

Hymn: All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name

Did the Climate Change after Noah's Flood

If you listen to the secular media, you are constantly told that there were many ice ages in the millions and millions of years that earth supposedly existed.

But is this correct?

Were there many ice ages?

And is the earth millions and millions or billions of years old?

Or is the earth young and was there only 1 ice age?

And if so, how did an ice age develop after Noah's Flood?

Today's DIT will explain.

Surtsey Iceland and a very young island

You have heard repeatedly that it takes millions of years to form an island

or to carve a canyon such as the Grand Canyon.

But is this true?

Does it really take that long?

Well, actually no.

You already have seen the massive changes in topography produced in 1980 during the eruption of Mount St. Helens -- this was an example of how rapidly canyons, such as the Grand Canyon, can be formed.

Today's link will dispel the myth that it takes millions of years to form an island.

How to get to Heaven and the Heavenly City

Yesterday's DIT was a sermon about Heaven and the Heavenly City.

Also yesterday a well known and famous overnight radio program interviewed a Physician who had written a book about NDEs.

NDEs?  What are they? you ask.

Well NDEs are "Near Death Experiences" in which folks have died (according to physical symptoms during operations, car accidents, etc) but subsequently returned to life.

Many times these people afterwards relate an experience they had while 'dead'.

The radio program to which we mentioned detailed many such NDEs but interestingly no one mentioned in his book reported a death experience in hell -- only wonderful Heaven experiences were related.

These experiences were then analyzed by the host and the person / author  -- and  affirmed  (or so they said) that EVERYONE goes to haven at death and there is NO judgment.

Also, they said, persons of all beliefs and faiths were in heaven.

They also touched briefly on reincarnation and other esoteric topics.

And there was more -- sigh -- but

Hmmmm.

These thoughts of universal salvation with no judgement or punishment plus the possibility of  reincarnation and etc. ALL definitely contradicts the Bible.

So -- What does the Bible say about WHO can go to heaven and HOW?

It says a lot -- but here are a few passages that you should ponder:

Who can be saved / admitted into heaven?
Jesus said: "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father (ie. can enter heaven), but by me (Jesus)."
John 14:6

And How is this possible?   Jesus Himself explained:
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son (Jesus), that whosoever believeth in him (Jesus) should not perish, but have everlasting life. (In Heaven)
John:3:16

So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many;  …
Hebrews 9: 28

And also -- Re Reincarnation -- it does NOT happen!  Why?  Because
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: Hebrews 9:27

What is the City in Heaven like?

Last week, instead of music, we viewed a sermon by Dr. Lee.

This week, let's view another sermon.

This one is shorter (about 39 minutes) and is on a topic about which everyone wants to know more.

The topic is The Heavenly City.

It describes it in great detail.

You will definitely want to go there when you die.

This sermon by Dr. David Jeremiah will describe the City

and tell you who can and not go there

and what to do to be able to have your special place in the Heavenly City.

Goat Canyon Trestle

A friend of DIT found today's interesting link.

Seems there is a really old all wood trestle/bridge that is no longer functioning but for years it was a viable railroad trestle.

It is 'out west' in the USA and the article to which we are linking today tells about it but doesn't tell you how to get to it.

But not to worry about the location because

the region is so hot and dry and 'out in nowhere' that you probably don't want to walk to it anyway.

Instead, take a vicarious hike to this amazing structure.

6,000 years or 10,000 years or billions of years -- does it matter

Today's culture has 2 main views.

One view is that the earth and universe is billions of years old --

The other view is that the earth is young -- in the thousands of years instead of millions or billions.

Even among those who believe in the young earth -- there are some that debate between 6,000 vs. 10,000 years.

So what is the real story?

And why is it important?

R.G. Lee Payday Someday

It is Sunday and usually on Sunday we worship with a Hymn

but today instead of a Hymn let's listen to a sermon.

A Sermon? Why?

Well, recently several of us were visiting in a Sunday School Class and the teacher mentioned that he and his wife had been married 50 years ago by Pastor R. G. Lee.

Now that name might be familiar to some of you.

For those for whom it doesn't ring a bell, well

R G Lee was pastor of Bellevue Baptist Church in Memphis, Tn. USA for many many years.

One of his sermons was so famous that he preached it over 1200 times at various pulpits around the world.

The sermon is based on 1 Kings 21 and reveals the sins committed by Ahab and Jezebel -- and God's judgment on all sin.

The message in this sermon makes it clear that all sin has consequences.

Dr. Lee died in 1978 but that sermon lives on and is available on YouTube.

This is such an important sermon and a true classic that we are linking to it today.

So pull up a chair and if you can cast it to your smart TV all the better--

And now with that said
