Default Casting Lots: How to Discern God’s Will - 02-23-2014, 11:10 AM

When my wife told me someone had been stealing from the cookie jar, I called my four children into the living room and asked the thief to come forward. No one fessed up, so I cast lots and found out it was my youngest son, Peter. He was dealt with accordingly – with the rod. Casting lots to determine guilt is a thoroughly Biblical practice. Take the story of Jonah.

Jon1:3 But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD, and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish: so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD.
Jon1:4 But the LORD sent out a great wind into the sea, and there was a mighty tempest in the sea, so that the ship was like to be broken.
[. . .]
Jon1:7 And they said every one to his fellow, Come, and let us cast lots, that we may know for whose cause this evil is upon us. So they cast lots, and the lot fell upon Jonah.


Jonah disobeyed God by trying to sail away to Tarshish, so He sent a storm. To find out who had brought the storm on, the crew cast lots and found that Jonah was responsible. Johnathan was also found guilty by lot (1 Sam 14:42) and Achan probably was as well (Jos 7).

This has tremendous implications for our court system. We don’t need judges and juries. A truly theocratic society would determine guilt or innocence and settle civil disputes through casting lots.

Prov 18:18 The lot causeth contentions to cease, and parteth between the mighty.

The skeptic may object that we are relying on chance, but nothing could be further from the truth. Each roll of the dice reveals God’s will.

Prov 16:33 The lot is cast into the lap; but the whole disposing thereof is of the LORD.

The casting of lots is non-random. It is 100% reliable and accurate. It gives me great confidence to know that so many important decisions made in the Bible were determined by casting lots.

A new Apostle was appointed by lot.

Acts 1:23-26
And they appointed two, Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias.
24 And they prayed, and said, Thou, Lord, which knowest the hearts of all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chosen,
25 That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place.
26 And they gave forth their lots; and the lot fell upon Matthias; and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.


The annual scapegoat was determined by lot.

Lev 16:8 And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for the LORD, and the other lot for the scapegoat.

The division of the land of Canaan was determined by lot.

Jos 18:6 Ye shall therefore describe the land into seven parts, and bring the description hither to me, that I may cast lots for you here before the LORD our God.

Haman cast lots to determine on which day he would destroy the Jews. He didn’t succeed, of course, but at least he determined the day on which the Jews would celebrate Purim (Est 3:7; cf 9:26-28).

I feel sorry for all those poor deluded lost souls who read tea leaves or tarot cards to determine their fate. The Hebrew word for lot is gorawl (pebble). The ancient Hebrews cast stones to determine the will of God. Simple as that. The Bible warns against divination.

Deut 18:10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.

Lev 19:26 Ye shall not eat any thing with the blood: neither shall ye use enchantment, nor observe times.


Next time you need to solve a problem in the home or in the church, don’t rely on random investigative work – cast lots!


Mt 21:42, 44 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes . . . ? And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

They will clearly burn in Hell for witchcraft (Exodus 22:18). Satan no doubt introduced tea as tea is not in the Bible. Atheists will point to Ezekiel 47:12, but that's about the medicinal use of leaves. Medicinal use of leaves is always allowed but actually enjoying it is Satanic and will buy you a one way ticket to Hell.


CANCER is a state of mind! Time to stop ALL healthcare!!!
Follow me on Twitter or burn in Hell for all eternity!

To most "Christians" The Bible is like a license agreement. They just scroll to the bottom and click "I agree". All those "Christians" will burn in Hell!
James 2:10 "For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all."

It's so obvious God listens to prayers said over the casting of lots. We can be assured He guides the results.

Reading tara cards and tea leaves are practices from the Pagans, enemies of God. It is inconceiviable God would have any role in the outcomes of tara cards and tea leaves.


Isaiah 24:1-3 Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty (2)...as the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him. (3) The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD hath spoken his word.

Most interesting, Brother Dr Pendergast. I think (after reading it through several times) that I understand most of it, but I am a bit puzzled by this part.

This made me think of the beautiful story of Our and the woman taken in adultery, specifically of John 8:7

So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

Is Jesus talking about stoning the woman for adultery (as I had always understood it)? Or is he suggesting that a True Christian™ in the group should cast lots, using a stone, in order to judge her innocence or guilt, so as to decide whether or not she should be stoned?

I am sure this is a foolish question, but you know how I have come to rely on your explanations in matters of theology.

There was no need to cast lots. This woman had been caught in the very act of adultery -- or so the Pharisees said (Jn 8:4). You only need to cast lots if there were no witnesses. God knows what really happened, and He controls the decision of the lot.

I would be careful about using methods not prescribed in the Bible. Casting stones is okay, but if you change the method just a little, you might end up committing divination.


Mt 21:42, 44 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes . . . ?

Of course! I am a fool of a woman! (But you knew that.) Thank you for correcting me with such kindness.

Quote:

Well, there is that too. Perhaps the fact that this testimony came from an unreliable source was the reason why seemed so unwilling to condone her being stoned, in this particular case?

Thank you again - I can see how easily one might cross the line there. I am not absolutely sure of the correct method for casting stones, but will do my best.

I cast lots and determined that George Zimmerman was innocent of any wrong doing. I didn't do it right the first couple of times but when I finally figured it out I learned the truth.

How, exactly, do I cast lots? Does this involve dice?

Well that's what I thought, and that's why I got rid of all my dice and playing cards when I got saved, but you'll recall I did fill in as Pastor Zeke's personal valet during his last fundraising junket to Las Vegas, and I got the impression from that experience that gambling is not always frowned upon.

I told you, we were checking the dice and slot machines for demons. Casinos make huge Love Offerings for that service!

Psalm 119:34

Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law;
Yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart.






2 Timothy 3:16

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

I once cast lots to determine if a 5 dollar bill missing from my wallet was taken by my youngest daughter. Sure enough, the stones proved her guilty. She balked when I explained what she must do to spare herself an eternity in hellfire (Matthew 18:8), so I, with much love, put her in restraints and removed the offending hand with a hack saw. I still have yet to recieve thanks from her, but I am a patient man. I feel slight guilt for providing her future husband with an inefficient dishwasher, though. Maybe I will offer him 20% off on the purchase price when the time comes.

After I saved my daughter's soul (if she has one, only God knows), I discovered that satan had sneakily placed the $5 back in my wallet, hidden behind one of my credit cards, so as to try and shake my faith in Christ's divine method of ferreting out sinners. He is a sly one, that devil, but not to be taken seriously.

Quote:
Dice and their forerunners are the oldest gaming implements known to man. Sophocle reported that dice were invented by the legendary Greek Palamedes during the siege of Troy, whereas Herodotus maintained that they were invented by the Lydians in the days of King Atys. Both “inventions” have been discredited by numerous archaeological finds demonstrating that dice were used in many earlier societies.
The precursors of dice were magical devices that (people of Biblical times) used for the casting of lots ... The probable immediate forerunners of dice were knucklebones (astragals: the anklebones of sheep, buffalo, or other animals), sometimes with markings on the four faces. Such objects are still used in some parts of the world.
(Encyclopaedia Britannica).


I think the answer is to use knucklebones. Invented to cast lots, Satan no doubt interfered and decided to use them for gambling. So provided you never use your knucklebones for gambling, you should be able to safely use them for casting lots. Once they're used for gambling, they're contaminated by Satan, and will not give you the answer you seek.
