Baruch 3 (KJV)

Baruch 3 (KJV)

1O Lord Almighty, God of Israel, the soul in anguish the troubled spirit, crieth unto thee. 2Hear, O Lord, and have mercy; for thou art merciful: and have pity upon us, because we have sinned before thee. 3For thou endurest for ever, and we perish utterly. 4O Lord Almighty, thou God of Israel, hear now the prayers of the dead Israelites, and of their children, which have sinned before thee, and not hearkened unto the voice of thee their God: for the which cause these plagues cleave unto us. 5Remember not the iniquities of our forefathers: but think upon thy…

Wisdom of Solomon 14 (KJV)

Wisdom of Solomon 14 (KJV)

1Again, one preparing himself to sail, and about to pass through the raging waves, calleth upon a piece of wood more rotten than the vessel that carrieth him. 2For verily desire of gain devised that, and the workman built it by his skill. 3But thy providence, O Father, governeth it: for thou hast made a way in the sea, and a safe path in the waves; 4Shewing that thou canst save from all danger: yea, though a man went to sea without art. 5Nevertheless thou wouldest not that the works of thy wisdom should be idle, and therefore do men…

Psalm 28 (KJV)

Psalm 28 (KJV)

A Prayer for Help, and Praise for Its Answer. 28 Unto thee will I cry, O Lord my rock; be not silent to me: lest, if thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit. 2 Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee, when I lift up my hands toward thy holy oracle. 3 Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbours, but mischief is in their hearts. 4 Give them according to their deeds, and according to the wickedness of their endeavours: give them…

Ruddy Skin Color In Scripture: It Doesn’t Mean What You Think It Means

Ruddy Skin Color In Scripture: It Doesn’t Mean What You Think It Means

[table id=6 /] [table id=1 /] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7_eFJqoS3o Ruddy Complexion In The Bible If you've ever wondered what the Bible means when it referred to Esau, David, and other Hebrews as ruddy, then you've come to the right place. This is a very in depth study on the word, because this page will be used as a resource page for other studies. For that reason, it is very important to have a full understanding of the word, and the context in which it is used in scripture. All I ask is that you look at the evidence presented and based solely…

Finding Edom: Who Are The Edomites Today? – Part 2

Finding Edom: Who Are The Edomites Today? – Part 2

[table id=6 /] [table id=1 /] In Part 1 we looked at the fact that Esau is described as reddish-brown (ruddy) and hairy. We also looked at the fact that he took wives from the line of Ishmael, which were a mix of Hebrew and Egyptian, and known to be dark skinned people. At least up to this point in scripture, we have to acknowledge that Edomites were black people. But the main issue is whether or not Edom became white and if some white people alive today are descendants of Edom. To further explore this journey, let's look at…

Apollos: African Born Jew and Apostle

Apollos: African Born Jew and Apostle

[table id=6 /] [table id=1 /] Apollos is only mentioned ten times in the New Testament, and it is from one of those mentions that we learn that he was born in Africa. This doesn't mean that his lineage was African, because scripture also says that he was definitely a Jew. "And a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man, and mighty in the scriptures, came to Ephesus." - Acts 18:24 Although mainstream Christianity loves to present a Eurocentric view of the Bible, Apollos was just one of many apostles that was either described as having black…

Ishmael: Abraham’s Half Egyptian Son With Hagar

Ishmael: Abraham’s Half Egyptian Son With Hagar

[table id=6 /] [table id=1 /] We are use to hearing the story of Abraham and Isaac, but we often forget about Abraham's oldest son Ishmael. Throughout the Bible, the Ishmaelites (Ishmeelites) play an important role in many of the events that take place. Let's start by taking  a look at the circumstances surrounding the birth of Ishmael. Different People Named Ishmael In Scripture In order to keep everything in context, we must first acknowledge that there are several different people named Ishmael in scripture, but two stand out over the others: Ishmael: son of Abraham (Genesis 28:9) Ishmael: son…

[table id=1 /] The Song of Moses 1 Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the Lord, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the Lord, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea. 2 The Lord is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father's God, and I will exalt him. 3 The Lord is a man of war: the Lord is his name. 4 Pharaoh's chariots and his host hath he cast into the…

Finding Edom: Who Are The Edomites Today?

[table id=6 /] [table id=1 /] Esau was the father of the Edomites, his sons and grandsons were the Dukes of Edom, but where did they go and are they really today's white people as some groups believe? Ever since I heard the belief that the Edomites are today's white people, I've had plenty of questions for many reasons. In an effort to find answers to those questions, I've decided to share that journey each step of the way. Important: I use the word "black" as an all inclusive description of people with dark skin. Those skin tones range from…
