10 FAB FACTS - 3 .
FAB FACT 21) "Who hath divided........ a way for the lightning of thunder?" Job 38:25 .
Here God seems to be showing us that people at that time, did not understand that lightning travels down the path of least resistance. If Job and his friends were unaware even of the basic laws of physics, who were they to challenge his almighty power and authority?
note: The man who helped start the Reformation in Europe, Martin Luther, is said to have been struck by lightning, and that it was this that caused him to become a monk, and study the bible. He was very inquisitive and this led to the Reformation. Was this bolt of lightning used by God to single him out to use him to teach salvation by Grace through Faith alone?
FAB FACT 22) The bible seems to predict that a volcano will go through a giant eruption near the end of the Age, and the debris falls into the sea. perhaps polluting the sea?. "And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;" Revelation 8:8 .
FAB FACT 23) Samson was the strongest man who ever lived! He was literally supernaturally strong! He was so strong he could lift up the gates of a city on his own! And he killed 1,000 men, with only the jawbone of an ass as his sword.
Samson said his strength lay in his 7 locks of hair. Seven is the number of completion. Some believe the 7 locks of hair represented holiness, which was the secret source of his strength. When Delilah cut off his hair, Samson lost his strength. The Philistines therefore captured him, put out his eyes, and Samson was as weak as any other man. But the Philistines did not realise Samson's hair grew back, and Samson prayed to God, and brought down the temple of idols, by pushing apart two giant columns holding the temple roof up.
But that is not all! Notice how when Samson pushed apart the columns in the temple of idols, he looked similar to Jesus on the cross! Jesus was the strongest spiritual man to ever have lived! He pushed away from us sin and hell when he died and rose again! So Samson was what is called "a type of Christ".
FAB FACT 24) Where does the Pope's Miter (hat) come from?
In the book "The Two Babylons" 1853 - by Alexander Hislop theories are put forward about the origins of many Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox practices. One of his theories was that a hat or miter similar to the one the Pope wears was worn by the priests of Dagon, the fish "god" worshippers. But also look at these amazing pictures of the reptile called a Chameleon. They look just like a pope wearing his religious hat. Could this be God himself in nature warning you about the pope, that he can disguise himself like a chameleon, and look religious, but really underneath it all he is as cold blooded as a reptile, and cares only for his own glory, and not at all about your soul!
FAB FACT 25) Did you know that Satan is so afraid of the story of the Pool of Bethsaida, he decided to take things out of the bible it? All the words in red are missing:
5:2 Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.
5:3 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.
5:4 For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.
Is Satan trying to hide the possibility that other angels in heaven have the power to heal people? Was the detail of the troubling of the water something that would make people thank God? What is your explanation?
