Jezebel and 32 Signs of The Jezebel Spirit

Jezebel and 32 Signs of The Jezebel Spirit

[table id=6 /] [table id=1 /] The traditional Christian crowd sometimes make reference to "the Jezebel spirit", but what is it and why? The name Jezebel is mentioned 22 times in scripture (21 in the OT and 1 in the NT), but the teaching of "the Jezebel spirit" is based on the 1 mention in the New Testament. If you believe in the Jezebel spirit or know someone that does, you're going to want to read this entire study. If you find something worth sharing, please do so. Jezebel In The Old Testament The story of old Testament Jezebel can…

Hagar: Abraham’s Egyptian Wife and The Mother of Ishmael

Hagar: Abraham’s Egyptian Wife and The Mother of Ishmael

[table id=6 /] [table id=1 /] Hagar was Abraham's black Egyptian concubine that overcame her status as a servant to become the mother to  of the largest nations to ever exist. When Sarah failed to get pregnant, as God promised her she would, she decided to take things into her own hands, and give her Egyptian handmaid Hagar to Abraham, so that he could get her pregnant. "And Sarai Abram's wife took Hagar her maid the Egyptian, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife. And…

Bathsheba: King Solomon’s Canaanite Mother

Bathsheba: King Solomon’s Canaanite Mother

[table id=6 /] [table id=1 /] Was Solomon's mother a descendant of Ham? This might be hard for many to accept, but the evidence points to the very fact that Bathsheba was not a Hebrew. If you've already read my previous article, Uriah: Bathsheba's African Husband and David's Mighty Man, then you know that Bathsheba was originally married to a black man from the line of Ham. Tracing Bathsheba's Lineage Although we are not told directly that Bathsheba is a Hamite, we can actually trace her heritage through her grandfather Ahithophel (David's African counselor). In 2 Samuel 11:3 we are…

The Queen of Sheba: King Solomon’s Ethiopian Mistress

The Queen of Sheba: King Solomon’s Ethiopian Mistress

[table id=6 /] [table id=1 /] The Queen of Sheba is one of the people that stands out in scripture, even though there isn't a lot that is said about her. According to the Bible, she made a special trip from Ethiopia to Israel just to meet Solomon, based only on hearing rumors of his wisdom. To understand the significance of this meeting, we must understand how political ties were made in the ancient world. In order to form alliances, royalty would often marry each other or have their children marry each other. We'll come back to this meeting further…

Ham: The Origin of Black Africans and Black Arabs In The Bible

Ham: The Origin of Black Africans and Black Arabs In The Bible

[table id=6 /] [table id=1 /] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jE0u1RYEYXE Ham: Son of Noah Noah had three sons: Shem, Ham (Cham), and Japheth, but it is Ham and his lineage that settled Africa and various parts of Arabia. Although that is the case, there is lots of evidence that Ham was not the only black son, but may have had black skin in common with Shem. According to scripture, the brothers were born when Noah was 500 years old. "And Noah was five hundred years old: and Noah begat Shem, Ham, and Japheth." - Genesis 5:32 According to the Strong's Concordance #2526 (Cham)…

Nimrod: The Grandson of Ham, The First World Leader, and The Builder of Babel

Nimrod: The Grandson of Ham, The First World Leader, and The Builder of Babel

[table id=6 /] [table id=1 /] Who Was King Nimrod In The Bible? Nimrod is arguably one of the most important people in the early parts of the Old Testament, but there is very little said about him in scripture overall. However, what is said changes the entire course of human history, mostly because of where he was from. Nimrod was the son of Cush, the grandson of Ham, and the great grandson of Noah. Nimrod: The Son of Cush Being a son of Cush, Nimrod himself would be classified as a Cushite. According to both scripture and history, Cushites…

Uriah The Hittite: Bathsheba’s Canaanite Husband and David’s Mighty Man

Uriah The Hittite: Bathsheba’s Canaanite Husband and David’s Mighty Man

[table id=6 /] [table id=1 /] David suffered a shattered kingdom, two dead sons, and his wives were raped in front of everyone... all because of the death of one Canaanite man... Uriah The Hittite. We've all heard the story of David stealing Bathsheba from Uriah, but how big of a role did Uriah's betrayal and death play in the life of David? In most Bible studies, Uriah is sort of a side note, and that's only because of what David did to him: David got Bathsheba (Uriah's wife) pregnant. David then set up Uriah to be killed in battle.…

Cush: The Hamite Founder of Sudan

Cush: The Hamite Founder of Sudan

[table id=6 /] [table id=1 /] While we don't know how long after the flood that the grandchildren were born, but we know who they were. Cush is the son of Ham, and grandson of Noah. "And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan." - Genesis 10:6 As the sons of Ham began to spread out from "the land of Ham", it is Cush that settles the area currently known as Sudan. It is here that Cush begins to have sons that will also eventually spread out to other areas. The Sons of Cush (Genesis 10:7-8)…

Tamar: The Canaanite Mother of Judah’s Son Pharez

Tamar: The Canaanite Mother of Judah’s Son Pharez

[table id=6 /] [table id=1 /] The story of Tamar the Canaanite is brief, but important in the grand scheme of scripture. She first appears in the Bible after Judah moves to Canaan and takes the Canaanite Shuah's daughter as a wife for himself (Genesis 38:2). Shuah's daughter bears Judah three half Canaanite sons: Er Onan Shelah After the birth of his third son Shelah, Judah chooses Tamar, a Canaanite woman, as the wife for his oldest son Er. "And Judah took a wife for Er his firstborn, whose name was Tamar." - Genesis 38:6 The Canaanites were descendants of…

Asenath: Joseph’s Egyptian Wife

Asenath: Joseph’s Egyptian Wife

[table id=6 /] [table id=1 /] The Bible doesn't have much to say about Asenath, but in the three verses in which she is mentioned by name, we learn a few things. She was married to Joseph (Genesis 41:45) Her father was Potipherah, Priest of On (Genesis 41:50) Her sons were Ephraim and Manasseh (Genesis 46:20) Her sons Ephraim and Manasseh would eventually be adopted by Jacob and receive the birthright.
