What is biblical meaning of the phrase thy kingdom come?
It means His power, authority, will. Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. 14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: 15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Matt 6:9-15 (KJV) FURTHER The word kingdom means king's domain and it is a type of government with a king as it's head. Jesus was teaching us to pray for God's Kingdom to "come," that is, excercise authority over the earth, as it is in heaven, so that God's will, or purpose, will be accomplished here on the earth, as it is in heaven. In Daniel chapter 2, the Bible prophesied about that kingdom. Daniel had a dream about an immense image that pictured world rulers and governments. Then in verse 44 it says, "And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be brought to ruin. And the kingdom itself will not be passed on to any other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it itself will stand to times indefinite." So God's Kingdom, a real government, will "crush and put an end" to all other kingdoms that stand in opposition to his kingdom. Isaiah 9:6,7 tells us that Jesus Christ is appointed to rule that kingdom. He is the now-reigning king over God's Kingdom, and soon that kingdom will "come" and bring about God's will for the earth, as Jesus has taught us to pray for. When will that be? Jesus gave us a composite sign in Matthew 24, beginning with the 3rd verse, that includes warfare, famine, sickness, crime, a general lack of love in the world, and other things. In 2 Timothy 3: starting with the 1st verse, Paul wrote that the last days before God's Kingdom will "come" will be marked by critical times and people would have no natural affection, would be dissobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, lovers of themselves, haughty, puffed up with pride, and many other things. These indicators and more from the Bible tells us that we are now living in the time period when soon God's Kingdom will "come" as Jesus taught us to pray for. Nobody on earth knows exactly the day nor hour, but we can discern that it is close from fullfilled Bible prophecy. The gospels refer to two kingdoms (1) the kingdom of God the Son, Jesus Christ which we enter through baptism and where we remain until the Last Day when "He will deliver the kingdom to God the Father after destroying every rule, every authority and power" (2) The kingdom of God the Father "Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the Kingdom of their Father" As it appears that the Kingdom of God the Father will not be open to us until the Last Day I presume that this is the reason for saying "Thy kingdom come"

I believe the expression 'to get your goat' has it's origins in horse racing. Race horses are very high-strung animals. Goats are often used as companion animals, to keep a …horse calm. Someone wanting to fix a race would slip into the barn the night before the race, steal the goat, then an upset, distracted horse would run a bad race. Hence, if you are upset and not at your best, it is said that 'someone has gotten your goat.' Further, this cliche has been replaced by the modern slang idiom, " push your buttons ", meaning successfully annoying you or even angering you. Not as colourful imagery as the original expression, but much easier to understand for people in a modern technological society. Other Opinions: I disagree. I think this expression comes from the use of a goat as bait for big game hunters. For instance, if the tiger" gets your goat", and you don't bag a tiger, you've got one ticked off hunter on your hands. Most horse people I know keep a donkey as a stablemate for skittish horses. The racehorse story is correct. It's possible that there are two separate origins for the same term, but in the USA, where there are no tigers, the goat was used as a companion for the high-strung racehorse, and if someone got his goat, the horse would run a bad race. Or it might backfire and the horse runs faster than ever. But that's the American origin of "get your goat," and Brewers Origins of Phrase and Fable classifies this as an "Americanism," so that casts the tiger story into great doubt.
if you say that something can be done if push comes to shove, you mean that it can be done if the situation becomes so bad that you have to do it. Example: Look, if push c…omes to shove we'll just have to sell the car.

The King James word "thy" means "your." ("Thy thy" wouldn't mean anything. I assume it's a typo.)
'I understand your point of view' It does not indicate agreement, just comprehension

Honor thy father and thy mother in the Bible means; to love your father and mother. To love your father and mother is to obey and respect them. Additionally: It also means to… conduct yourself outside of the home in such a way that it brings no shame on your parents. "Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first Commandment with Promise;) that it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth." (Eph.6:2-3) Almost everyone wants to live a long time. And it would be a strange person indeed who doesn't want his life to go well for him. The Bible says a man will leave his father and mother, and that home one day for marriage -- at which time he and his wife become a father and mother. This expands on the Commandment [as since almost all people become parents eventually] to "honor and respect one another" [fathers and mothers and people] wherever you go. This is the big lesson that the Ten Commandments would get across to man, if he were receptive to them. The sum total of them is to LOVE and RESPECT our Creator with every fiber of your being... and LOVE others as much as we love ourselves. If mankind is to Live Eternally with one another in the universe [which man is to inherit]... he first needs to learn to get along with his brothers and sisters here on earth. It begins in the home with the children "honoring and obeying" their parents. But that puts the burden on the parents to conduct themselves in such a loving and honorable way as to be an example for the children to emulate. The Commandment is not a one-way road.

This phrase is recorded by Ezekiel, a Jewish priest and prophet recently exiled to Babylon. God's throne is shown to have wheels etc. the point seems to be that God is not bac…k in Palestine, his throne is mobile, he is God of everywhere and he is with his people even in their exile. The wheel was a perfect wheel of vapor born from a vortex [whirlwind like] riding from within a nimbus cloud. The Cherubin ride inside of this wheel and move downwards within their light. The Glory of the Lord came from within the wheel and this caused a Rainbow like aura as describerd by Ezekiel to spin on the outside of the wheel producing a wheel spinning around a wheel,spinning not in the direction it went over the heads of those who were there.These are Gods Chariots and have been described in ancient text as Ophanin.This is the wheel within a wheel, it is NOT symbolic.

When God created mankind, he made them from earth, and placed them on earth to 'cultivate and take care of it'. (Genesis 2:7)(Genesis 2:15) They had the hope of living forev…er in a paradise earth, unless they disobeyed God.(Genesis 2:16) They had everything they could ever need (Genesis 2:16-25), but chose to turn against God.(Genesis 3:1-13) Because of this, all Adam's descendants were subject to sin and death (Romans 5:12), but God's purpose for the earth and humankind had never changed.(Proverbs 2:20-22)(Psalms 115:16) He sent Jesus to buy us back from sin and death (1 John 2:1&2)(1 John 4:9&10), and open the way for faithful mankind to once again, live forever on a peaceful paradise earth, as God had originally intended.(Isaiah 55:10&11) (John 3:16)In the 'model prayer' that Jesus demonstrated above, he reminded his followers to continue praying for 'God's Kingdom to come, and for his will, once again, to be done on earth, as it is in the peaceful heavens, (Matthew 6:9&10), when he brings about those paradise conditions promised so many years ago, (Psalms 37:10,11,29)(Matthew 5:5)(Revelation 21:3&4) under God's Kingdom government. (Daniel 2:44)
It's from the US Appalachian Mountains -- it means "just a little way." Think of the distance you can spit and that you can "holler" or yell. A "holler" also means a small val…ley, so it could mean "just the next valley" as well.
