The missing books

Updated on December 12, 2010

The missing books!

People say all works and no play makes Jack a dull boy. In the light of this, I would love you guys to relax a bit with this Bible Teaser which I got from my son and then added to it, rearranged and conclusively make sense out of it.

There are eighteen missing books of the bible in the following story; can you find them out as you read through? Enjoy it!

The last of the synoptic brothers once remark about the hidden books of the Bible. It was a lulu, kept people looking so hard for the facts and for others, it was a revelation. Some were in the jam, especially since the names of the books are not capitalized nor punctuation regarded. But the truth finally struck home to a numbers of people trying it, to others it was a real job.

I want it to be a most fascinating moment for you. Yes, there will be some really easy ones to spot; others may request experienced judges to help them. I will quickly admit it usually takes a minister to find one of them and there may be lamentations when it is found.

A lady says she brews a cup of tea so she can concentrate better. See how well you too can compete. Relax, for there really are eighteen names of the books in the Bible in this story. One Preacher found seventeen books in twenty minutes, but it took him three weeks to find the eighteenth book; when he did, he finally got a mat, the winning prize!

Here is the statement from this little teaser:

I went down into the garden of nuts to see the fruits of the valley, and to see whether the vine flourished, and the pomegranates budded.’ – Songs of Solomon 6:11(KJV)

As nuts can not be eaten until shells are cracked and broken, so it is with the Word of God. God spoke to Israel in parables; Jesus talked to people in parables. Parables are shells that contain the nuts. The nuts are the lessons, the substance, and the essence in the parables. The entire Bible is a garden of nuts; we all need the Holy Spirit to crack and break open the shells for us before we can eat the nuts of the Word, and be prosperous.

‘The Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and make you remember all that I have told you.’ – John 14:26

Today, our Teacher and our Comforter is everywhere, patiently waiting for us to turn to Him for help in all directions. He is the only Lamp in the Holy place that shows us the Bread (of life).

Unless we turn to the Holy Spirit, the written words are hidden words! Take heed!!

Preparing the Bride,

      Hello Pastor. Loved it and right on. I 'get' the words you write am I Missing something. Is the point that without the Holy Spirit it is impossible to understand the 'Living Word' or to 'get' scripture. The Holy Spirit our teacher comforter guide is like the wind and hovers around to touch hearts and open hearts for the Love of Christ. When born again the Holy Spirit then moves in us and on us to show and teach us and help us to understand the Living Word which is ALIVE and truth and well.

      Non Believers do not understand this and so presume many things about the 'Christian' many question where do you come from? I think you know what I share. 'We will know them by their fruits' We have much work to do for our Gracious awesome God.

      Your writing is awesome. Is this what link you were speaking of? Did I miss something here?

      I relate I know because I too was lost at one time, searching for truth. I found a temporary fix in idols money, drugs, sex, me self and I. It was a miserable search. I am so grateful for the works of the Holy Spirit. The movement is on brother.

      When I was born again into the Family of GOD the Bible opened up to the Living Word. LIVING GOD is alive the same yesterday today and forever. I do not need to seek anything but His face. Off with the blinders Praise GOD. I heard the word with a fire. I Love the Lord with a fire.

      Comment back is invited. Thank You May GOD make His face to smile and keep shining in that loving heart of yours. In His name your sister in Christ Jesus.
