Super Faith Sunday Challenge- Who is She??

Hey Neighbor! 

It’s Super Faith Sunday, where we feature Our ‘Female of the Week’ from the Bible. 

Although We didn’t share a Super Faith Challenge Last Sunday, We did feature the stories of two Young Ladies from the Book of Genesis; Dinah and Tamar

Their stories were tragic and they quickly disappeared from the story, but God had placed them there on the pages, so that their names would never disappear from our hearts. Bible readers throughout history and time have read and will continue to read their stories and Remember the names: Dinah and Tamar!!

We’re still in the Book of Genesis, with a few more ladies to acknowledge.  Again we want to give them their flowers, while we’re here with them, in their Book and Chapter. 

Remember Our Super Faith Female may not have possessed extraordinary physical strength, but she could pin you to the mat in a round of Faith!! 

She refused to give up!!  

She tightly grasped onto God’s Promises and Pressed on to the very end!!

She Fought the Good Fight of Faith!! 

Here is Our Super Faith Female- Who is She??

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

She had been barren for 20 years of their marriage, but after much prayer, God blessed her with not 1 but 2 sons who contended with one another. She brought her issues before God and believed His message – that her weaker son would champion the stronger.  She refused to accept anything less for him- pressing forward on his behalf until the very last day that she saw her beloved son.

Grab Your Bibles and Have Fun!! 

I will post Answers for You on Tuesday.

Solution Saturday Answer and ’A Snake in the Camp!!’

And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel (Gen 3:15)

Hey Neighbor! 

Today is the unveiling of our Trivia Thursday Answer to: ‘The King’s Daughter.’ 

Beverley from the Blog, ’Becoming the Oil and the Wine’ submitted her correct Answer this week.

She also commented on this sad story, reminding Us that there are many lessons that can be learned through both Tamar’s tragedy, as well as Dinah’s.

Thanks Beverley👏👏👏

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

Today’s featured daughter was named Tamar– not Judah’s Daughter-in-law – Tamar.

Yes! These two women share the same name.

Yes! She may even be a ’namesake,’ but she is no Canaanite.

She is born of the Tribe of Judah, a son of Jacob, and she is the baby girl to King David of Israel.

Now Very Much like Jacob, David had several wives and concubines (secondary wives) and therefore he had many children with multiple mothers. 

Amongst them were, Tamar and her older (full) brother, Absalom. They were both children born to David, and their mother was named Maaccah. 

Now the eldest brother, who was heir to the throne, and the first born son of David was Amnon.  His mother was named, Ahinoam. 

There are several more wives and children of David’s to list from 1 Chronicles 3:1-9, but these are the most critical names that we will need to recognize, as we look into this tragic and incestuous tale. 

Now prince Amnon had fallen ‘lovesick’ for his half-sister Tamar. So we know pretty early on that this young man already has some serious ‘issues.’ 

But he kept his feelings toward Tamar hidden.  The only person Amnon shared his secret with was the ‘very subtil,’ Jonadab. 

Subtil- Sly;cunning; crafty; deceitful; treacherous.

Have We Seen This Word Before in the Bible??

Sure We Have!! 

-Now the serpent was more ‘subtil’ than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?  (Gen 3:1)

Keep that in Mind!! 🧐

Now Jonadab is actually Amnon’s first cousin- The son of David’s brother- but here, he is described as a friend to Amnon, which reminds us, We should be very careful who We call ‘friend!’

But Jonadab is no friend, He is All foe, and the voice of the serpent speaks through him!!

Yes! It’s the serpent, now raising his ugly head from within King David’s household. He had previously slithered into the garden to beguile Eve and now he has slithered into Amnon’s house to beguile and defile Tamar. 

Jonadab uses his crafty words, expressing false concern for Amnon, inquiring about his loss of appetite and his leanness, reminding him that he is the heir to the throne- Why should he be denied anything or anyone??

-including his sister, Tamar.

Satan had already prepared the ground, feeding Amnon’s incestuous lust for his sister, now he plants the seed of deception, advising him to use trickery to draw Tamar into his bedroom, all alone

The seed takes root and Amnon feigns illness,  using his leanness to appear sickly.  David of course, becomes concerned about Amon’s health and appearance and unwittingly sends to him Tamar- at Amnon’s request. 

We know that this story does not end well for Tamar- nor does it end well for Amnon, but satan, once again has prevailed in the King’s Home!!

He had slithered into the House of David, biting his children, and thus resulting in terrible desolation and death amongst his children and the women in his home.

Now this woman, Young Tamar was satan’s original target here- as was Eve in the garden. He had slithered in to isolate, deceive, and to victimize the weaker sex. He also used this same strategy or M.O.- modus operandi against Dinah. 

Remember, Dinah was ‘all alone’ when she was violated by Shechem.

Eve was ‘all alone’ when she was beguiled by satan.

And Tamar was ‘all alone’ when she was defiled by Amnon, which resulted in a lifetime of despair and desolation for this virtuous daughter of King David. 

Unfortunately, the serpent is still loosed within David’s house, and we will soon witness the treacherous bite and the fall of the King’s younger son, Absalom. 

Absalom will go on to seek his brother’s blood in vengeance. He will wait for David to administer justice for his sister Tamar, but when David fails to act, Absalom will take matters into his own hands and thus fall captive to satan’s trickery as well. 

We Praise God for Jesus, Our King and Savior who came to Save the Sinner and Set the Captives of Satan Free!! 

Remember Neighbor, there were also serpents in the wilderness, biting God’s people resulting in death and despair, but God told Moses to make a serpent of brass, and place it upon a pole, and those who were bitten could look upon the brazen serpent and live!! (Numbers 21:8-9)

That’s the representation of our Lord and Savior, Jesus upon the Cross!! 

Unfortunately today, the fiery serpents still slither within our camp, as sin is still ever present in our flesh, but when We look to Jesus, Receiving Him as Our Saviour, and Repenting of Our Sins, Our bounds are loosed and the chains are broken!!

Don’t Forget Neighbor, We Still Have the Victory in Jesus!! 

Revelation 20:12 tells Us that Jesus has already prevailed against that serpent of old and in the end- We Win!! 

-And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years (Revelation 20:2)

Amen And Amen!!

‘Oldie-but a-Goodie’ Friday- Driver’s Permit!!

Hey Neighbor!

It’s March 11, 2022 and Today is Oldie-but a-Goodie Friday, where we resurrect an older CareBibleStudy Blog post and give it life!!

Today I have a Short and Sweet Treat for You. We originally posted this one in January of 2015.

It’s Pretty Funny- especially for Parents with Teens!!

Enjoy!!

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

Here’s a little light humor between a Christian Father and His Son!!

I found this on Bible.org

Here’s the story…

A young boy had just gotten his driving permit. He asked his father, who was a minister, if they could discuss the use of the car. His father took him to his study and said to him, “I’ll make a deal with you. You bring your grades up, study your Bible a little and get your hair cut and we’ll talk about it.”

After about a month the boy came back and again asked his father if they could discuss the use of the car. They again went to the father’s study where his father said, “Son, I’ve been real proud of you. You have brought your grades up, you’ve studied your Bible diligently, but you didn’t get your hair cut!” The young man waited a moment and replied, “You know Dad, I’ve been thinking about that. You know, Samson had long hair, Moses had long hair, Noah had long hair, and even Jesus had long hair….” To which his father replied, “Yes, and they walked every where they went!”

********************************
Cute- Huh??😉

Reminder: Tomorrow is Solution Saturday!!

I Will Solve the Riddle and Release the name for Our Trivia Thursday: ‘The King’s Daughter’

Bible Trivia Thursday- The King’s Daughter!!

HeyNeighbor!

It’s Trivia Thursday!! 

But first I have Your Answer to Our, impromptu Tuesday’s Trivia Question-Who’s That Lady?? 

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

She was the new girl in town, a new face in the land of Canaan. She was a chaste daughter of Jacob- a young virgin, who appeared to be traveling all alone when Shechem, the Hivite prince in the land, pounced upon the opportunity to come near to her, as there was no male with her to protect her, nor defend her. 

Her brothers were with the livestock in the fields. We’re not told of the whereabouts of her father, nor her mother Leah at the time. We only know that the young girl ventured out alone, probably without her parent’s permission, and at some point, Shechem, being stronger than young Dinah, forced himself upon her and defiled her. 

Yes! Rape did occur in the Bible. This was the first occurrence we learn of here in Genesis 34, but unfortunately it was not the last. 

A slightly similar ‘defiling’ moment would later affect Dinah’s distant niece- a descendant ‘daughter’ of Dinah’s brother, Judah- and a daughter to a king in Israel in 2 Samuel. 

Oddly, in this next story, it was not a stranger who raped the king’s daughter, but it was her brother, Amnon- who afterwards showed great disdain for his sister. After he had tricked her to come to his bedroom, he forced her to lay with him, then Amnon ‘hated’ her and threw her out! 

Now in contrast to Amnon, scripture tells Us in Genesis 34:3, that afterwards Shechem’s ‘soul longed for and clung to Dinah.’ He had fallen in love with this young girl, and wanted her to stay with him, as his princess and bride. 

Now this is by no means some fairy-tale love story!!

But it is a story of repentance! 

Shechem felt great sorrow and regret for the dreadful thing that he had done to Dinah. He was sorely ashamed and wanted to make things right because he truly loved this girl and now wanted to appeal to her wishes.  Scripture says, Shechem spoke to Dinah comfortingly, trying to calm her heart and mind because he knew that he had violated her and had caused her shame before her father and had made her a reproach before her brothers in the land. 

But What Must Be Done Now?? 

Shechem makes confession to his father, Hamor and asks his father to speak with Jacob and to beg for Dinah’s hand in marriage. When Jacob arrives to confront Hamor about the matter, scripture says that ‘Jacob held his peace’ until his sons had come. 

We can only assume that Jacob stood there, listening intently to Shechem and Hamor, while he pondered what can be done to right the wrongs at this point.  After all, Schechem, who had previously dishonored his daughter was now willing to do the most honorable thing by marrying Dinah, in attempts to make things right amongst the two families in the land. 

But unfortunately, Jacob stood silent for far too long-before his bloodthirsty sons arrived on the scene- already filled with anger and hatred; ready for war and vengeance! 

I will spill more tea on Jacob and his sons later- but for today-since it’s Thursday…..

Who was this King’s Daughter (mentioned above) who Amon (her brother) tricked and defiled and afterwards hated??

Grab Your Bible’s and get comfortable, because the book of Samuel reads better than any novel You can possibly buy!!

Bible Trivia Tuesday-Who’s That Lady??

Hey Neighbor! 

Did You Miss Our Super Faith Sunday Challenge?? 

The Good News is, No!! – You did Not!! 

Instead I posted, ‘A Little Sunday School Humor- Lol!’ 

This was actually a pretty cute story-and very short….if you want to backtrack and check it out- I think you will enjoy a nice chuckle!! 

But for Today, I have a Tuesday Trivia Question for You!!

We’re still in the book of Genesis, where we’re highlighting the lives of the ladies in the Bible, and re-discovering some of the tests and trials of the ‘lesser’ known females in the Book of Genesis.

Last week we featured Tamar in our Super Faith Sunday Challenge. She was Our ‘Woman of the Week,’ and we learned how she stubbornly refused to accept ‘No!’ for an answer- from the men in her life. 

This week we find that in contrast, it was the obstinate young man in _____________’s life, who refused to accept ‘No!!’ for an answer. 

Here are Your Hints*****

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

  • __________________was an Israelite girl- born to the union of a man with a ‘great name’ and to his ‘lesser loved’ wife. 
  • __________________was her father’s first baby girl, amongst his 13 children; and she was her mother’s 7th child- and the last of her mother’s children, after she had given her husband 6 sons. 
  • __________________walks onto the pages of the Bible as a teenager, traveling to visit her new girl-friends, in her new town. 
  • Unfortunately, _________________was traveling alone and suffered a most undeserved fate, before her name eventually disappears from the pages of the Bible.

Who is This Lady??
