Even though you were created by God, that does not automatically make you his child. The phrase “child of God” or “son of God” (in this sense, “son” means child) originates from Scripture , yet Scripture does not create an environment where anyone can claim to be God’s child.

This is the first and experimental blogpost I am doing on my observations about Scripture. More and more I have a desire not to just to document facts about the Bible, but talk about my personal thoughts about Scripture and how the Word of God can impact our life.

He then went on to tell his Apostles not to be like the government officials of Galilee, who exerted their authority on their subjects.

Another “archaeological” discovery has been found within recent days; a find that is consistent, if not confirming Biblical record. A recent DNA test has confirmed and traced the existence of Canaanite genes in the city of Sidon and across modern Lebanon.The findings have been published in an American scientific journal with a focus on genes.

Note: This blogpost does not account for the "destroyers" mentioned in the text; however the general position of an "Angel of Death" remains the same
Around Passover many begin to recount Exodus' account of the Passover: how the Hebrew Israelites put a lamb’s blood on their door and how an “Angel” killed the firstborn of every Egyptian household. This Angel is often renowned as “the Angel of Death”, but upon searching for this Angel in more detail many ask “Where is the Angel of Death found in the Bible?”
Actually, the so-called “Angel of Death” is not found in the Bible. In fact, the scenario of the Passover it is not entailed that the “killer” was even an Angel, but God Himself not agents of wrath.
