Update, I have recently had an accident in which my memory has left me. As things change I will keep you informed.
Can you find the names of sixteen (16) books of
the Bible hidden in the paragraph below?
I once made a remark about the hidden books of
the Bible (merely by a fluke). It kept people
looking so hard for the facts and for others it
was a revelation. Some were in a jam, especially
since the name of the books were not
capitalized, but the truth finally struck home to
numbers of readers. To others it was a real job.
We want it to be a most fascinating few
moments for you. Yes, there will be some really
easy ones to spot. Others may require judges to
help them. I will quickly admit it usually takes a
minister to find one of them, and there will be
loud lamentations when it is found. A little lady
says she brews a cup of tea so she can
concentrate better. See how well you can
compete. Relax now.
Acts, Amos, Esther, Hebrews, James, Job,
Judges, Kings, Lamentations, Luke, Mark,
Numbers, Peter, Revelation, Ruth, and Titus.
You have a doctor, a lawyer, A gardener and an architect having lunch together to discuss what is the oldest profession in the bible.
Doctor, of course says it is medicine. God put Adam to sleep, preformed an in-cession took out a rib and made woman, that makes medicine the oldest profession in the Bible.
The gardener smiled. That’s pretty good but God planted a garden and then put man in it and told him to tend to it That makes gardening the oldest profession in the Bible
The architect said yes but God created the heavens and the earth an engineering marvelty that has never been or never will be duplicated. That makes engineering the oldest profession in the Bible.
The lawyer chuckled, that is the problem with Americans you read it in the English and you think it is gospel. If you read it in the original text you would see that it was created out of chaos that means we were there first.
Welcome and I hope you enjoy yourself here. I have been study the Bible for over 25 years and through out those years I have had the pleasure to write studies on eight books of the bible. The studies are done in question format so everyone can study at their own pace. Again enjoy. Feel free to ask a question or make a comment.

1 Corinthians 6:19&20 – Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
God knows that we are but little children so He has made it possible for us to always be in contact with Him. He did this by making the Holy Spirit part of us and us in Him. this way we can always be in direct communication with Him. In John 15:26 Jesus tells us that when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me.
God Loves us so much that His Spirit is always with His children.
