Numbers 22:28

And the LORD opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times?

 

Balaam the Donkey and the Angel

God came unto Balaam at night, and said unto him,

If the men come to call thee, rise up, and go with them;

However, Balaam did not listen to Him.

 Balaam saddled his donkey and went with the princes of Moab instead,

And he brought the wrath of the Lord upon his head.

 The angel of the Lord stood in the way,

The anger of the Lord was against Balaam this day.

 The donkey saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way, 

And his sword drawn,

The donkey stopped and did not continue straight on.

To the angel of the Lord the donkey did yield,

  The donkey turned aside out of the way, and went into a field.

Balaam struck the donkey, to turn her back the other way.

But the angel still stood in the way,

Therefore, Balaam, the donkey did not obey.

Balaam struck the donkey again with his staff,

Then the Lord made the donkey speak on her own behalf.

The donkey said. “What have I done to make you strike me?

I have never done a thing to hurt thee.”

Then the Lord opened Balaam’s eyes and he saw the angel,

And he bowed down his head, and flat on his face he fell.

And the angel of the LORD said,

“Why did you strike your donkey? Behold, I went out to withstand thee,

And the donkey saw me, and turned from me

 Unless she had turned from me, I would have  slain thee, “

And Balaam said,  “Lord, I have committed a sin; I will get me back again. “

 And the angel of the LORD said unto Balaam,  “Go with the men:”

And then Balaam did go with the Men.

(Genesis 22:1-2

Abraham’s Faith Confirmed

 “And it came to pass after these things, that God did test Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am. And he said,

Take now thy son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.”

 

Abraham’s Faith Confirmed

Now Abraham’s obedience God decided to test.

To see if Abraham would obey him was God’s quest.

God told him to go to a place where he was told.

At this place, Abraham would have to do something that was bold.

God told Abraham to make a brunt offering of Isaac his son.

Certainly, this was a deed that Abraham would shun.

However, Abraham obeyed God, as he knew he should.

Therefore, he laid Isaac on an alter with some wood.

Then Abraham stretched out his hand with his knife.

As an offering to God, he was about to take his son’s life.

However, the angel of God told Abraham not to slay his son.

God now knew that Abraham feared him above everyone.

For Abraham feared God in such a great way,

That his only son Isaac, he was willing to slay.

 

 

 

 

 

 

(1 Kings 3:24 AV)

 “And the king said, Bring me a sword.

And they brought a sword before the king.

And the king said, Divide the living child in two, and give half to the one, and half to the other.

 

Solomon’s Wise Judgment

Once two women were brought before King Solomon.

They both claimed that a child was their son.

One woman’s child was dead.

She did not accept it but took the other woman’s child instead.

However, a wise man was this king Solomon.

He told them he would cut the child and give half to each one.

With this decision, one woman agreed.

However, the other woman did not indeed.

With compassion for the child, her heart was filled.

She pleaded with Solomon that the child should not be killed.

Because she wanted the child to live;

She told Solomon that to the other woman the child he should give.

However, Solomon gave the child to the woman who wanted it to live.

To the other woman the child he did not give.

Solomon knew that she was the child’s real mother.

He knew that he could give the child to no other.

 

 

 

Genesis 32:29

Jacob Wrestling With God

And He said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou struggled with God and with men, and has prevailed.

 

Jacob Wrestles With God

Once Jacob wrestled with a man,

To receive a blessing from this man was Jacob’s plan.

This proved to be thing that was fine,

The man he wrestled with was divine.

Against Jacob, the man did not prevail,

To get the best of Jacob the man did fail.

The man realized he was beaten at this point,

He touched the hip of Jacob, which was out of joint.

The man asked Jacob to let Him go,

Jacob said, “I will let you go if you bless me.”

The blessing soon came to be.

The man said unto him, “What is thy name?” “And he said, Jacob. “

The man said, “Your name shall be Jacob no more,

It shall now be Israel for sure,

For as a prince has thou struggled with God

and with men, and did prevail,”

To get his blessing Jacob did not fail.

To some this may seen unbelievable and odd,

Jacob actually wrestled with God

Black People and in the Bible

Out of all the races and nationalities on the earth the Bible describes Jesus to have the appearance of a Black man, Why? This tells me that the Black race must be a very important race. Therefore, I am featuring the Black characters who are written about in the Bible on the following pages.

The First Christians

 

As we have shown in other pages, the ancient Hebrews were Black people. Consequently Jesus and his disciples were also Black, as were the early Prophets and Saints. The following Christian icons are mainly from the Orthodox Christian Church, which unlike the Catholic and Protestant Church's, seems to have resisted the urge to make everyone White, (the Catholic conversion is so complete, that of the six known Black Popes, not even a Whitenized image of any of them is known to exist). The Orthodox Christians seemingly being content with just giving the subjects exaggerated White features (notice the noses are even more narrow than the White Saints - White people are funny!). Yes of course, there are many Blacks who have narrow noses and thin lips - but we suspect that is not what they had in mind. Of course these Black Christians did not really look as depicted here, their iconic images were likely created long after they were dead. One should also not be fooled by the Coptic (descendents of the ancient Greeks of Egypt) image of a Black Jesus, that is a rarity, hidden away in their museum. All of their modern icons have been converted to White 

Tirhakah king of Ethiopia, Protecter Of Jerusalem

 

King Hezekiah of Judah sought to destroy Jerusalem.

However, God used Tirhakah king of Ethiopia, to protect the jews.

 

2Kings 19:9

And when he heard say of  Tirhakah king of Ethiopia, Behold, he is come out to fight against thee: he sent messengers again unto Hezekiah, saying,

2Kings 19:10

Thus shall ye speak to Hezekiah king of Judah, saying, Let not thy God in whom thou trustest deceive thee, saying, Jerusalem shall not be delivered into the hand of the king of Assyria.

Isaiah 37:9

And he heard say concerning Tirhakah king of Ethiopia, He is come forth to make war with thee. And when he heard it, he sent messengers to Hezekiah, saying,

Isaiah 37:10

Thus shall ye speak to Hezekiah king of Judah, saying, Let not thy God, in whom thou trustest, deceive thee, saying, Jerusalem shall not be given into the hand of the king of Assyria

Ham

The Father of the Black Race

Genesis 10:1

Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.

Genesis 10:6

And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut

The Black Race

From Noah’s sons the forming of nations took place,

His son Ham is the father of the Black race.

The Black race is great in deed,

They did great things in the world when there was a need,

All of Ham’s descendants are considered Black,

Fame in the Bible they did not lack.
