Grab Bag with keys

Time for the Grab Bag! It will be on time this time! Woo!

Who was the least of the apostles?

1 Corinthians 15:9
For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.

Paul, is talking here. He is the least of the apostles.

Who was given the keys of the kingdom of heaven?

Matthew 16:19
And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

In verse 18, it shows who this verse is being directed toward. He is talking to Peter. So the answer is Peter!

Who is all power given to in heaven and earth?

Matthew 28:18
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

Jesus is given all power in heaven and in earth. :D

Let God be magnified! And be ready for a podcast episode to be coming soon!

Grab Bag Sunday!

The Grab Bag is here, late, but here.

Is Patience a Virtue?

Luke 8: 43-46
43 And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any,
44 Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched.
45 And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?
46 And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me.

Here Virtue heals a woman.

Proverbs 12:4
A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.

Here it’s a woman who is pure and clean.

2 Peter 1:3-8
3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Here you add it to your faith.

So, to understand what patience is, you need to understand virtue. All of this explains virtue to be a “pureness” aspect. A woman was purified from touching Jesus’ clothes, and it healed her. A pure woman is a crown to her husband. So, what is patience? It’s an attribute. Virtue is also an attribute. Attribute’s of God. God is Holy. Then having holiness is having the attributes of God. Virtue and Patience are two attributes of God, listed among others.

What were the number of each animal, which went into the ark Noah built?

Genesis 7:2-3
2 Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.
3 Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.

So, seven of every clean beast an and two of every beast not clean.

Does Matthew 28:19 mean there is such thing as a Trinity?

Matthew 28:19
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

Trinity by definition means three persons. In this verse, it specifically says “name”, which is singular. The name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost would then be the same name. This means one name for all of the titles.

Isaiah 9:6
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Here, are a few of the other titles which describe the son which is born.

So the answer to the question here is, “No”. There is no such thing as Trinity.

I hope everyone has a good Sunday! Leave a comment or send in feedback for what you think!

Grab Bag, end with the rock.

Hello everyone! It’s time for the weekly Grab Bag!

Was Goliath a giant?

1 Samuel 17:4
And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span.

Short answer, No. Long answer, keep reading. :)

So, doing a little research on history six cubits and a span is between 8 and 12 feet tall. This varies because of how a cubit and span are measured. Cubits are measured from the elbow to the tip of the hand (mine is about 15 inches). Spans are measured from a stretched out hand from tip of the thumb to the tip of the little finger x3 (mine is about 8.5 inches). So, six of my cubits and one span is about 115.5 inches = to 9.625 feet. Sun Mingming here is a whole 7′ 9″ as a comparison.

Nowhere have I found it saying Goliath was a giant. All I have found was a description. There are other points in the bible which talk about the “sons of the giant”. Four of them in particular only two were named. Ishbibenob, which was of the sons of the giant. Saph, which was of the sons of the giant. The brother of Goliath the Gittite, which was of the sons of the giant. A man of great stature, six fingers on every hand, six toes on every foot, 24 in all, also was born to the giant. These four were born to the giant in Gath. It doesn’t give the height of these warriors of the Philistines. So we can’t really compare. We do know Goliath was one big boy. However, nothing says he was a giant.

Who buried Moses?

Deuteronomy 34:4-6
4 And the LORD said unto him, This is the land which I sware unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, saying, I will give it unto thy seed: I have caused thee to see it with thine eyes, but thou shalt not go over thither.

5 So Moses the servant of the LORD died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the LORD.

6 And he buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, over against Bethpeor: but no man knoweth of his sepulchre unto this day.

The Lord buried Moses :)

The Lord is the beginning and the end, right? If he was the beginning of the people of Israel as a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night, then how did he end the people?

1 Corinthians 10:2
And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

He ended them by following them, He was the rock!
