Default What's your favourite HISTORICAL PERIOD of the Bible (and why?) - 05-31-2011, 10:09 PM

Well, I must admit I do enjoy the invasion, ..or rather...taking possession of the Land of Milf and Honey by the Israelites, the Battles, the slaughter of the unChosen, the wars of Judea and the might of the military rulers of the Old Testament but I must admit my favourite HISTORICAL PERIOD of the Bible is the times relate in the Acts of the Apostles and St Paul's Letters to all and sundry.

It was a time of civil unrest and was the immediate aftermath of Jesus's death/rising and Christians everywhere were under the kosh so to speak.

It was a formative period for ourselves today. It was the beginning of True Salvation.

I think maybe I'm biased towards Paul/Saul. My own conversion was similar in many ways. He persecuted Christians and fought against the Truthful Inner Voice that was God telling him to cut the crap and get Saved, which he did eventually.

I was the same, although far less worthy. I too had Christians as my victims from time to time, though not specifically them as I was walking through a haze of alcohol, resentment, guilt and anger, so just about anybody was a handy victim of some grievous bodily harm or harassment.

But one day that changed. I think it was my 7th or 8th time awaking in a hospital among strangers with a tearful angry wife and nurses attending to my wrecked face or other injuries from falls or picking 12 bikers to poke fun at or assault.

It was the 8th time I think. Long after the 'ewe'.

But I 'saw'. I 'came back' to the 'fold'. And al of this helps explain my username too. I even sign off sometimes with McU to remind me always of my shame. And my repentance. And His Mercy.

And so with Paul and his road to Damascus. And his letters. I bet he wishes now he'd had the internet back then. He could have admonished and converted the world by now. Even Finland.

Not only this, but it is actual historical testimony from eyewitnesses that proves beyond all doubt our Saviour's suffering, passion and resurrection. Where else can you get real historical evidence for events long past? Nowhere, that's where! Except the Bible.

Here's some.
9 And when hee had spoken these things, while they beheld, hee was taken vp, and a cloud receiued him out of their sight.

10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heauen, as he went vp, behold, two men stood by them in white apparell,

11 Which also said, Yee men of Galililee, why stand yee gazing vp into heauen? This same Iesus, which is taken vp from you into heauen, shall so come, in like maner as yee haue seene him goe into heauen.


Now Paul also told the Galatians of his redemption and of his sin and of the Divine nature of the Bible:

10 For doe I now perswade men, or God? or doe I seeke to please men? For if I yet pleased men, I should not bee the seruant of Christ.

11 But I certifie you, brethren, that the Gospel which was preached of me, is not after man.

12 For I neither receiued it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the reuelation of Iesus Christ.

13 For yee haue heard of my couuersation in time past, in the Iewes Religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the Church of God, and wasted it:

14 And profited in the Iewes Religion, aboue many my equals in mine owne nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers.

15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mothers wombe, and called me by his grace,


And I personally think that is beautiful. Nothing short of tear-jerking poetry. Only in the KJV1611 friends.

And I adore his summary of our purpose as laid out in Corinthians (The sequel).


5 For we preach not our selues, but Christ Iesus the Lord, and our selues your seruants for Iesus sake.

6 For God who commaunded the light to shine out of darkenes, hath shined in our hearts, to giue the light of the knowledge of the glory of God, in the face of Iesus Christ.

7 But we haue this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellencie of the power may be of God, and not of vs.

8 Wee are troubled on euery side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despaire,

9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast downe, but not destroyed.

10 Alwayes bearing about in the body, the dying of the Lord Iesus, that the life also of Iesus might bee made manifest in our body.

11 For we which liue, are always deliuered vnto death for Iesus sake, that the life also of Iesus might bee made manifest in our mortall flesh.

12 So then death worketh in vs, but life in you.


So I know my favourite HISTORICAL PERIOD of the Bible is perhaps not the most blockbustingly spectacular, but it is one close to my heart. The 1st Century A.D.

Shaer your own favourite HISTORICAL PERIOD of the bible friends!

Share and Praise Him. Hallelujah.

YIC, McU.

I'm torn between the pre-fall period in Eden (imagine being able to walk up to a herbivore tiger or t-rex and being able to pet them!) and the Flood when everyone in the world who provoked God's wrath, from the oldest sinner of a man to the youngest sinner of a baby, received their just punishment through drowning.

American History between 1780 and 1860, when a man's property rights mean something. After that the country has been nothing but a socialist hell hole.



Time to reclaim our FREEDOM from the “Mullah in Chief” and his growing activist voter hoards of socialists, communists, anti-Semites, anti-Christians, atheists, radical gays and lesbians, feminists, illegal immigrants, Muslims, anti-Anglo whites and others.

I'm going to say the first 6 days. Just knowing that God took nothing and then in just a few days made EVERYTHING: it just takes my breath away!

And then He kicked back for an ENTIRE DAY. That's the way it's done, people.

Genesis 22 has always touched my heart.

Quote:
1 And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am.

2 And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.

3 And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him.
What True Christian™ faith. To love God so much that you never question Him. We have so much to learn from this wise man in Abraham, praise Jesus.

Quote:
4 Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off.

5 And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you.

6 And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together.
Father and son on a camping trip, ready to serve God. Brings a tear to my eye.

Quote:
7 And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?

8 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.
Isaac seems a little scared, but trusts his father. And Abraham trusts God. As it should be.

Quote:
9 And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.

10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.

11 And the angel of the LORD called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I.

12 And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me.

13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.
It was just a test! Both Abraham and Isaac passed and pleased God. I can only imagine their glee at having their faith reinforced.

My brethren, if only God would test us in such remedial fashion as we walk with Him.

In Christ


Matthew 19:14 "But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven."
