The Strange Romance of Jacob and Rachel

Poor Leah. She really didn’t have much of a choice with things. But, we’ll get to that. After Jacob stole his brother’s blessing, Isaac commanded him to leave Canaan and search for a wife. The reasoning was the same as Abraham’s. It’s just interesting that Isaac didn’t send a servant to find his son a…

The story of Isaac and Rebekah Continues

Before we get to the romance of Jacob and Rachel… and Leah, we need to understand the situation that set all of this up. From my last post, it appears that Isaac and Rebekah are destined to live happily ever after. Well, the fairy tale part of their marriage is about to be over. Chapter…

The Romance of Isaac and Rebekah

Genesis 24: Now Abraham was old, well advanced in years. And the Lord had blessed Abraham in all things. 2 And Abraham said to his servant, the oldest of his household, who had charge of all that he had, “Put your hand under my thigh, 3 that I may make you swear by the Lord,…

The “Romance” of Abraham and Sarah

As we explore the romantic relationships of the bible I want you to keep this in mind: What are the little foxes (Song of Solomon 2:15) or problems in their marriage? Did they respond by resting or trusting in the Lord? (Spoiler alert… no) How did God respond to their sins of mistrust? Adam and…

The Romance in the Beginning

The first romance was very perfect, very elegant, very simple, and very practical. It made since. Genesis 2 18 Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.” 19 Now out of the ground the Lord God had formed every…

Love Practical

The story of Troy is high in drama and excitement. Imagine a war fought over the love of a man and a woman! What passion! What wonder! What stupidity! It is a fun tale to say over the campfire. Who knows the real story behind it all. Maybe Helen had a role to play but…

Personality Tests vs Freedom

Putting yourself under the thumb of any type of personality test is limiting. You have to view life under those confines. If you are a peacemaker according to your Enneagram, well, what if a situation arises that calls for you to fight for something? Peacemakers, by their very nature, don’t push any personal agendas. They…

Myers Briggs vs Faith

Personality tests give you answers to a whole lot of questions in life. They tell you of yourself and those around you. The problem is, most of those answers are only kind of true. What’s Your Sign? Horoscopes and the like do the same thing.  Myers Briggs or MBTI claims to have all of the…

Duality and Myers Briggs

I went to a small college. So, my friends were sort of chosen for me. They just so happened to be people who had the same classes in the same building as I. We were all music majors.  This is how I met an ex-Catholic who was a witch into the Wicca occult. One of…

The Bibleperson Personality Test

In a previous post I talk about the ungodly effects of Myers Briggs and the Enneagram. We must use the bible to discern ourselves and others, not the knowledge of this world. The Enneagram is demonic as this short video demonstrates. Automatic writing means freeing the mind and allowing a demon to write what it…
