we have all grown up hearing the story of Noah’s Ark and many of us we were in say Sunday school always hurt and it was two by two by two with the animals what most people fail to realize as I wasn’t two by two if we go to Genesis chapter 7 we can clearly read in verse 2 of every clean beast thou shalt take by these sevens the male and his female on the beasts that are not clean by two and the male and his female many are familiar with the story of samson and delilah which is a very famous story from the old testament which ends rather badly for Samson Samson has long hair was the source of his strength the common misconception was that Delilah was the one to give him the haircut which is actually wrong as we can read in judges 1619 but in fact it was Delilah’s servant who gave the haircut although popular Christmas hymns and traditions tell us that three wise men visited Christ and the Bible does not give us the number of the wise men Matthew wrote the following concerning the Magi his visit we read this in Matthew 2 9 through 11 when they had heard the King and departed and behold a star which they had seen in the East went before them till it came and stood over where the young child was when they saw the star they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy when they had come into the house they saw the young child with Mary his mother and fell down and worshiped him and when they had opened their treasures they presented gifts to him gold and frankincense and myrrh the traditional view presented in films such as the Nativity story is that the wise men saw Jesus on the night of his birth but this is highly unlikely as we can read in Matthew 2:1 which reveals that the Magi came to Jerusalem has subsequently visited with Herod after Jesus had been born the angelic announcement of Christ’s birth to the shepherds was at night which means that Jesus was born at night in Luke 2 verse 11 the angel told the Shepherd’s for there is born to you this day in the City of David a savior who is Christ the Lord the Greek word translated as this day it means the same day as the day of discourse which would be like today since the Jewish day began at sundown roughly 6 p.m. and the angelic use of this word indicates that Christ was born at night since that day would have started at sundown so it is highly implausible that the wise men would arrive in Jerusalem at night and immediately obtain audience of Herod the King then gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people so he could determine where the Messiah was to be born the experts told Herod at the Messiah needed to be born in Bethlehem which was predicted in Micah 5:2 so the wise men departed and made their approximate six mile journey to Bethlehem if we assume that the wise men met with Herod during the day after Jesus was born then the earliest that could have visited Jesus would be the next night many people have heard the story of Adam and Eve and serpent in the garden when many people fail to realize is that all the artwork depictions and children’s books that we have always seemed to show the serpent as a regular snake in the tree speaking to Eve and this is not what the Bible says at all the serpent did not look like it did until after it attempted Eve God had placed a curse upon the serpent why we see these depictions something that puzzles even my own mind we read in Genesis 3:1 that the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made we can only take a guess as to what the serpent may have looked like it may have looked something like this but one thing we do know is if the serpent was not cursed until after it had tempted he as we read in Genesis 3 verse 14 and the Lord God said unto the serpent because thou hast done this thou art cursed above all cattle and above every beast of the field upon thy belly thou shalt go and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life god helps those who help themselves we’ve heard this many many times a wise and interesting quote that everyone knows thinks is from the Bible but in fact it isn’t there was a man not God who coined the well-known and overused proverb it was from Benjamin Franklin and was written in the Poor Richard’s Almanack Chavez Chavez is only mentioned in a few verses of Scripture and is known for his famous prayer of Jabez mentioned in first chronicles 4:10 Java’s called upon the God of Israel saying oh that he would bless me and enlarge my border and that your hand might be with me and that you would keep me from harm so that it might not bring me pain and God granted what he asked it is a simple yet powerful prayer trade in full faith and serves as a powerful example of answered prayer and receiving blessings from the Lord Ashima the thing that makes you Lucia interesting is not actually because he is interesting in fact we do not know a lot about Elijah mom who was a scribe or secretary mentioned my name briefly in the scriptures in Jeremiah 36 12 what makes this obscure Bible character interesting is in the extra biblical evidence that we have for him and in turn the historical reliability of the Scriptures in 1986 outside of Jerusalem a clay seal was found that says eli Shyama the servant of the king proving that he was indeed ascribed in the exact time setting and situation that the scripture describes this is true evidence that all of Scripture is god-breathed even down to the most tiny detail and the seemingly insignificant person
