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.

Mary Magdalene: The Woman Possessed By Seven Devils

Mary Magdalene: The Woman Possessed By Seven Devils

[table id=6 /] [table id=1 /] Who Was Mary Magdalene? Even though her popularity suggests otherwise, she is only mentioned in 12 verses in the Bible. Many of us think we know who she is and what her role was, but how much of it is based on scripture and how much is based on the Gnostic texts? It may surprise you to learn that many of the church teachings about Mary Magdalene come from outside of the Bible and have made their way into church doctrine as if it appeared in the Bible. The Exorcism of Mary Magdalene There…

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…

Miriam: The Older Sister of Moses and Israel’s First Prophetess

[table id=6 /] [table id=1 /] Miriam is only mentioned by name in 14 verses in the Bible, but she is one of the most important people found in the pages of scripture.

Miriam, Moses, and Aaron were all born to Jochebed while living in Egypt, Africa. We actually know less about their mother than we do about there father, and there is almost nothing said about him in the Bible. Who Was Miriam's Father? While the story…

Zipporah: The Midianite Wife of Moses

[table id=6 /] [table id=1 /] Zipporah was one of seven Midianite sisters that mistook Moses for an Egyptian after he saved them from the men at the well (Exodus 2:16-19). Her father Jethro was the priest of Midian, and it was he that gave Zipporah to Moses to marry. While she is introduced early in Exodus, very little is said about her. In fact, she's only mentioned three times in scripture. Zipporah: meaning bird or little bird. The First Wife of Moses What isn't immediately obvious in scripture is that Moses had two wives and Zipporah was the first.…

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.
