The Bible is the life and tree of knowledge which contains:

* 66 books

* The shortest verse is John 11:35; “Jesus wept”.
* Ezra 7:21 contains all the letters of the alphabet except 2.
* Ezra the scribe was the first to preach from a pulpit.
* The words “boy” and “girl” “chapel” “coffin” “eternity” and “reverend” are only mentioned once – read on until you find them.
* The finest piece of reading is said to be in Acts 26.
* The name of God is not once mentioned in Esther, although it contains so much holiness, knowledge, love, and wisdom.

Read the Bible diligently in preference to the trash of the present day. All who may doubt these words and figures, count them for yourselves.
The above wonderful calculations occupied much time, devotion, study and perseverance to complete the work, and it is said to have originated from either an afflicted invalid lady or from a convict long confined in prison, thus enabling him to help pass away the solitary hours, and who must have been blessed with the patience of Job to complete the task.

The above was taken from a print over 250 years old. The Friendly Companion, Vol CXIV November 1989

  1. I’m requesting for myself, mom and family. I’m also asking for a breakthrough in my prayers regarding school, study, using all of my gifts, continue my journey with the lord. Also all the spritualism that’s being used around me terminated. I’ve been dealing with spritualism for a many years now and Mom and I are exhausted. I’m praying for these people that are involved with spritualism and it’s dealings. All part of families in some form. Howard, Mary, Dalisa, Shera, Lloyd, Eleanor, Clarice, Joseph, Ms. Neal, New Spritual leader that’s Jamaican that Eleanor is dealing with and Gloria that’s in the neighborhood. I’m asking God that he will post a Angel on our property to stop the theft of Howard and anyone else that continues to steal from us constantly. Please pray for me. I’m really in need of a breakthrough and I know that we shouldn’t question God. I’m getting to the point where I don’t want to study. Please pray for me so that I can continue in school and study more and don’t backslide from the truth. God will intercede on whomever is trying to stop my Mom and I to get help on our property!! Please Please Pray for us.

    Thank YOu
