Lilith Was Never Mentioned In The Bible But Is Described as a Demon and Adam's First Wife By Jews

Lilith is a female Demon of the night and Succubus who flies about searching for newborn children to kidnap or strangle and sleeping men to seduce in order to produce Demon children. At least this was what Hebrews believed and wrote down in some of their texts. Lilith is a major figure in Jewish Demonology, appearing as early as 700 B.C.E.

Wednesday Was Named After Odin, The God Of Wisdom, See The Origin Of All The Days Of The Week

Have you ever wondered why Monday is called Monday? And how every other days in the week got their names? Yes, No; read on to get more enlightened. The seven days week originates from the calendar of the Babylonians, modern day Iraqi people, which dated back to the 21st-century B.C. It takes the moon seven days to complete the passage of its four phases. The four phases are full, waning half, new and waxing half. What I mean is that, it takes seven days before the moon moves from full to waning half, then another

Was Lucifer A Seraph, A Cherub Or An Arch-Angel: Discussing The Ambiguity Around The Name, "Lucifer"

Was Lucifer A Seraph, A Cherub, Or An Archangel? Before I answer the question, I will like to address the ambiguity surrounding the issue of the name "Lucifer" and the fact that some believe that Satan isn't exactly an angel since the name Lucifer was used to describe a planet or a king in the ancient days. Some will tell us that Satan is not an angel since the name associated with him isn't exactly his and the idea of the anointed Cherub in the book of Ezekiel 28 was not satan. I must respectfully disagree

Expert Says Probable Third Temple of Jerusalem Could be Signaling End of World

Predictions surrounding world end have been around us for ages, and until now, nothing has happened to this blue planet where life thrives and evolves.

Now, a Bible expert has shockingly predicted that the rise of a third temple in the holy land of Jerusalem will be actually

This is the Babylonian map of the world you may have been hearing, see the material it is made of

You might have heard of the Babylonian map of the world. It is real and some information on it are still intact. Some part of it are broken before it was found. It is kept at the British Museum. You can go there to touch it and feel the weight. The map is very easy to read and understand even though it is written on such material. The map is in tablet form and shows the world as a disc surrounded by a ring of water called the "Bitter river". You can visit the British museum's site to know more about the map.

Do you still remember Local Wrestling and how it was fought?

Local Wrestling is one of the oldest forms of combat, referenced in the Iliad and depicted in 15,000-year-old cave drawings in France. Early Egyptian and Babylonian reliefs show moves still used today. Always popular in ancient Greece, local wrestling held a prominent place in the Olympic Games. The oldest sport with the possible exception of athletics, local wrestling is recognised as the world's oldest competitive sport. The widespread and general acceptance of local wrestling gave it a glitter spot in Africa.

Opinion: The Idea of Seven Heavens is not Biblical, Rather It Is a Myth Concorted By Babylonians

The phrase "in seventh heaven" is one that many believers are familiar with, and despite its popularity, there is a controversial sense to it. According to those who often describe their belief in this idea, the seventh Heaven is the highest of the heavens, the most talked about, famous parts of the clouds, where God, and his angels supposedly exists.

Opinion: Invoking the hand of the Lord upon our lives-Ezra’s example.                  The Bible is filled with stories of people who lived their lives under the influence of God. Through deep faith and a willingness to serve, God used them to fulfill His purposes. Ezra was one such example. When a person determines to seek God and allows the Lord to use him, God showcases such a one with His power. In 457 B.C., Ezra led a group of Jews from Babylonian captivity back to Jerusalem.

ASTROLOGY: What you need to know about Planets and the Days of the Week

There are seven days of the week, but did you know that seven planets serve as the ruler each day? This ancient tradition stems from Babylonian times and holds significant merit since Astrology's first organized roots are traced to this time period. Back then (as early as 2,000 B.C.) the outer planets, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto, were not yet discovered, since the telescope had not yet been invented. Astrologers and astronomers could only work with planets visible to the naked eye. The Babylonians organized

Oldest Countries In The World

Although human life began to form millions of years ago, the earliest signs of human civilizations appeared fairly recently in the human timeline. Some of the earliest civilizations developed around 6500 BCE, when people stopped living nomadic lives and began to settle in and develop one area. These early settlements soon gave rise to massive cities and the idea of separate countries and nations followed. Some of the earliest countries formed not long after civilization developed and all of the countries on

Godly Wisdom Guards Against the Influences of a Godless Society

From the beginning of human history Satan has tried to confuse and confound God’s purposes by corrupting man’s thinking. In the Garden of Eden he succeeded by calling God’s character into question and convincing Eve that her disobedience would have no consequences. To this day he continues to deceive entire civilizations by blinding “the minds of the unbelieving, that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ” (2 Cor. 4:4).

Hinduism Ancient Roots as a Religion

While Hinduism may not be as widespread as some other major religions, nevertheless, it commanded the loyalty of nearly 700million followers by 1990, or about 1 in 8(13%) of the world's population. However, most of these are found in Asia particularly India. So it's logical to ask, how and why did Hinduism become concentrated in India? Some historians say that Hinduism had it's roots over 3,500 years ago in a wave of migration that brought a pale-skinned, Aryan people down from the northwest into the Indus Valley,
