So I hope my followers by now have heard about The Bible on the History Channel. If you have not its a 5 part series on of course, The Bible. It started last Sunday and Part 2 was last night. Check it out! Rediscovering the most heart-renching, stories of the bible.
This Sunday we went over the falling of Jericho, Samson, Saul, David and Goliath, and Davids reign as king.
The story of Jericho, made me miss how much I love the history and how I wrote a paper on Noah’s Ark (15 pages to be exact), and for the Ark of the Covenant, it has been lost in time with only the writing from the bible guessing on its location. No one knows where they truly are and many assume they have them. I think God will reveal them when the time comes and if it is necessary. God leads us in ways that we cannot see, so in some way, I believe if we stop looking for them, they will come to fruition.
Anyways, what I truly have loved about this so far, and I saw Oprah and T.D. Jakes talking about this on twitter, was Samson. Samson was a big ‘ol dude with dreads! And finally, black people being shown in the bible. After so long, we all know they were living back in the day, how could they not in that area of the world. Don’t act like Africans/blacks were non-existent in Jesus’ time, because they were. As someone has finally shown us that they were, I am so thankful for that. Amen to having some black people in there! But of course, Samson gets distracted by the woman, Delilah.
In David’s case, the chosen king after Saul falls, the man goes in sin. Even as a chosen one, we fall short and sin. The Devil is evil, but us as humans have to be just as strong and good willed to overcome the devil and his temptations.
