Bible Study

Thursday, November 04, 2010

So, I'm doing a Bible Study at church on Thursday's with some other ladies... We're doing a Beth Moore study on the book of Daniel. I'm really learning alot, it's been very interesting and Beth Moore is a WONERFULING AMAZING FUN teacher.

We were looking at chapter 10 today and it was just ... I don't know... WOW. How have I gone to church my whole life and not known about this? Did you know that Daniel is the first book of the bible to name Angel's? If you didn't, there you go. You learned something new today. So, anyways the chapter is about Gabriel appearing to Daniel... But when Gabe first shows up, and Dan's done all his fainting and passing out, Gabe says, Sorry man, I was supposed to be here three weeks ago, but got held up. Had to get Mike to come help me.... WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT? That's heavily pharaphrased mind you, but that's what it said. Can you imagine, an ANGEL getting held up fighting the battle? Crazy. We're so consumed with what's going on in our world and we can't even begin to fathome what's going on in the spiritual world... MAN!

Alright, I'm going to go ponder this further, while I go to the gym and try to do some cardio.

Peppermint Out!

    Don't know what kind of books you like. I read all sorts. One author who's an easy read is....Frank Peretti. In his books some of the main characters are angels...good ones and fallen ones. They really get into some serious rumbles. You can start to imagine them battling all around us. Try might like him. I think his first one was called...THIS PRESENT DANGER. Love your translation by the way. lol

    I was always glad Gabriel didn't show up to me personally, because in the New Testament it was always to announce an unexpected pregnancy! emoticon emoticon LOL
    What did you think of Daniel and his buddies saying,
    "Just give us veggies and water" and they were healthier than their counterparts?
    I was telling a friend today about when Samuel met Saul and had already told the chef to make a special steak for him - and what it will be like when we get to the banquet God is planning when we get to heaven! emoticon

    I'm pretty sure the Archangel Gabriel doesn't say 'sorry man' emoticon
    Great job on taking the initiative to complete a bible study. It always amazes me how many people can claim a religion they know nothing about!

    I always loved bible study. I loved the paraphrasing, BTW. One of my favorite teachers was great at breaking it all down and putting things into modern day jargon. I'm glad you are enjoying it!
