Bible Trivia Thursday- Life Beyond 120!!

Hey Neighbor! 

I was talking with a friend just the other day about how Moses had lived a full life and even though Moses never got the chance to step his foot onto the Promised Land, his eyesight was still sharp and he still had a spring in his step at 120 years old. 

Moses maxed out his livelihood at 120, according to Genesis 6:3, where God tells us that He was done putting up with humans for hundreds and hundreds of years.

Prior to that, Adams descendants- all the way up to Noah lived extremely long lives. Like Seth who lived to be 912 years old, or even Lamech who lived for 782 years.  

Did you know that Lamech also had a son named, Methuselah, who is on record for having lived the longest life ever??

Can you guess how old Methuselah was when he gave up the ghost??

***********************************

Now What about these Patriarchs and their sons??

  • Abraham
  • Ishmael
  • Isaac
  • Jacob
  • Joseph

How old were they when they gave up their ghosts??  And Can you Place them in Chronological order according to the length of their lifespans??

For Example: 

1. Methuselah(969) 2. Seth(912) 3. Lamech (782)

**********************************

Super-Faith Sunday Answer – ‘Faith-full’ Sarah

Hey Neighbor! 

It’s Tuesday, and Today I have your Super-Faith Sunday Answer!!

*****************************

Now what kind of answer do you give your husband when he wakes you up at the crack of dawn and then ushers you to quickly pack a bag and says, “Let’s go!! 

As she wipes the sleep from her barely opened eyes, she says, “Abe, Where are we going??”

We know that his Answer could have only been – “I don’t know yet, baby…but come on…let’s go!”

Now this is a really good wife right here – This Sarai!!

She could have rolled right on over and told this man to lay his crazy tail down, but instead she ‘faith-fully’ and dutifully grabs her most essential things and follows her husband. 

In Hindsight, we know that Sarai and Abram were headed to the land of Canaan, but at that time, they were leaving Haran, with no destination in mind, merely following the command of a voice that they did not recognize.

This was a new kind of ‘god’ to them- not one of their voiceless and sedentary images that they were accustomed to worshipping

This one spoke- and quite powerfully too, but not in a scary or spooky sort of way, but most emphatically!! 

God had called Abram, awakening Him with the Words, “Go!”

  • NOW [in Haran] the Lord said to Abram, Go for yourself [for your own advantage] away from your country, from your relatives and your father“s house, to the land that I will show you. (Genesis 12:1)

Now – I’m pretty sure I just heard Him say Go, but He didn’t really say- Where?? 

That’s Right!! God was doing what I call His, ‘walk by faith thing.’ In other words…

Trust My Words for now- and I will fill in the gaps later!! 

Now, These ‘Words’ were spoken to Abram- not Sarai. Of course we know Lot is just along for the ride- Now that’s another story for another day-🫖 Because Today, I am suppose to be telling You about Sarah!! 

So this ‘faith-full’ wife follows her husband…

Who is following an unknown voice…

and Lot is following them!!

Wow!!

But Seriously Now- Abraham has heard the voice of The One True and Living God- The God Who produced and formed the world and all things in it -The Lord of heaven and earth!!

Abraham has heard God and has believed- and because Sarah is a loving , patient, and ‘faith-full’ wife, She will follow this Man wherever His God leads him!! 

Whether it be to Egypt – Where Abe Gives her away to Pharaoh, saying “She is my sister!”

Or Whether it be to Gerar- Where once again, Abe Gives her to another king, Abimilech, saying, “She is my sister!”

Sounds like a Story we would hear about on Divorce Court- huh??

But let’s have a little Patience with Old Abe, after all- He is still following God!! 

In fact, Abe has established a relationship with God and the Two of them are bonding- although Abe makes a mess from time to time!! 

Now Sarah, is still following her husband and during those 25 years at his heels, 

She has gone along with the ‘She’s my Sister’, act!! (partially true) 

She has gone along with the name change thing!! Sarai vs Sarah!!

She has heard all the Promises!! (second-hand)

But Sarai still has had no visit from God, nor a son- as promised!!

She grew impatient, angry, disappointed, and extremely jealous because of Abe and Hagar and their son, Ishmael!!

You see…All the riches that she received in Egypt and in Gerar were not enough to fill her empty womb…Until God Shows Up for Sarah!!

Yes!! Finally! A One-on-One visit with God!! 

No!! Not with Abraham as a ‘go-between!’

God shows up in Sarah’s life and gives her His Personal Promise!! 

And unlike Abe, When God makes a Promise, He Keeps It!! 

God Gave Sarah a Son and Called Him Laughter!! 

Why Laughter??

You see when God showed up the year prior, visiting Abe, and promising him a child through Sarah…Sarah heard all these things and Laughed!! 

 -And the Lord asked Abraham, Why did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I really bear a child when I am so old? (Genesis 18:13)

Well, Sarah denied that she Laughed!! 

After all, She was 89 years old!! 

But just one year later, God Showed and Proved Himself in Sarah’s life – breaking through her stubborn unbelief!! 

God showed Sarah that nothing is impossible with Him, and that nothing is too hard or too wonderful for the Lord!!

Sarah, like Abraham, was now a firm, and righteous believer in The Almighty God!! 

He was no longer ‘Abraham’s God,’ but He was now Sarah’s God- And That Same God called Sarah, ‘Faith-Full!!’

God’s ‘Faith-Full’ Daughter – Rebekah!!

I have loved you, says the Lord. Yet you say, How and in what way have You loved us? Was not Esau Jacob“s brother? says the Lord; yet I loved Jacob (Israel), But [in comparison with the degree of love I have for Jacob] I have hated Esau [Edom] and have laid waste his mountains, and his heritage I have given to the jackals of the wilderness (Malachi 1:2)

Hey Neighbor! 

Yesterday, We unveiled our ‘Faith-Full’ Female of the Week, Rebekah- Who learned during her ultrasound with God 😂🤣 that she was pregnant with twin boys.

But Rebekah could not understand why the babies struggled so, and fought with one another in her womb. God told her that the two boys were fighting for the rights of the firstborn son- and contrary to the ordinary expectation-God had chosen her second born son, Jacob!!

You see…God Loved Jacob, but He had rejected Esau!! 

Rebekah believed These Words and Gladly Received them in her Heart!! 

Now for those of you familiar with this story, You may have a few questions about Rebekah – such as….

Did She really believe God’s Words??

If Rebekah had really believed, why did she grow so impatient with God, taking matters into her hands??

Why did she intervene herself into God’s work, and attempt to usurp His timing?? 

Good Questions!!

I also had some of my own questions while reading this…I wondered; 

Was it Rebekah’s intention all along for Jacob to obtain the rights of the firstborn son, by outwitting an older, stronger Esau – instead of waiting on God??

Is this why Rebekah named and called her second born son (Jacob) Trickster/Supplanter??

Who Knows?? 

But Let’s Be Real About This!!

Which of Us believers, in our flesh, has not at some point decided that we were hired in by God, as His Personal Assistant- with a Job Description that read:

Candidate must be active and alert to assist God to meet His Project Deadlines!!

Abraham and Sarah had done this when they hired in the housemaid, Hagar to have a son (Ishmael) for them- instead of waiting on God!!

You see, as God’s assistant 🤣😂 Sarah was convinced that God was running late!! And in her old age, she feared that she and Abraham were running out of time!!

Well Rebekah also believed that Jacob’s time was running short for him to acquire Isaac’s blessing, because Isaac was now about 100 years old and had gone blind. 

Jacob had already successfully manipulated the birthright from Esau’s hands, but without Isaac’s blessing, Jacob still could not inherit the promised covenant, which was previously established between God and Abraham in Genesis 17.

  • And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee. And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.  (Genesis 17:6-7)

You see…Abraham, upon his deathbed blessed Issac, passing on this covenant to his son of ‘the promise,’ Isaac- and not to Ishmael-Abraham’s son of the flesh!!

And now Isaac, possessing the established covenant, will now pass it forward, blessing only one of his two sons. 

Now God had promised Rebekah that the blessing was pre-established for Jacob, But her husband, Isaac would have it so that the blessing would be passed on to, and be established through Esau instead.

But Rebekah was not having it!! 

You see Rebekah overheard Isaac call for Esau, requesting deer meat for his last meal,’ presuming that he, Isaac would soon be exiting from this world- and passing on to be with his own father, Abraham.

Isaac’s Words to Esau:

  • Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison; And make me savory meat, such as I love, and bring it to me, that I may eat; that my soul may bless thee before I die (Genesis 27:3)

Can You See Rebekah Fuming 😡, in response, saying underneath her breath:

satan!! You are a Liar and the Father of All Lies!! 

But Not today – and Not in this Tent!! 

So this is where an overzealous Rebekah takes matters into her own hand!! 

What will Rebekah Do?? 

Well Neighbor, I will have to brew a whole new Pot of Tea for Us to finish this story…

So come on by again this Friday- because tomorrow is Trivia Thursday and I have some really good questions prepared for you- plus a Bonus!!

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Until Next Time, Remember…
