Fun Bible Riddles

by Steve Ray on September 26, 2019

Many gave so I could rise.
I was almighty in their eyes.
Many died when I was crushed.
They were forced to drink my dust.

What am I?

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

Born once, die twice;
Born twice; die once.

What does it mean?

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

Three times I have been divided
doing what God had decided.
Twice a garment was the tool
that led me to obey God’s rule.
Once God’s son I did embrace.
Once the ark stood in my place.
Never have I walked the ground,
nor in the heavens was I found.

What am I?

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

The hunter was killed, the prey were set free, the water was the lock and the rod was the key.

Who was the hunter?

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

It walked on earth,
It talked on earth,
on earth it knew no sin.
Its not in hell,
Its not on earth
And heaven won’t let it in.

Hint for the last two: Psalm 136:10-15 and 3) Numbers 22:28)

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

From where God placed me I did fall,
I knew the Christ and knew of Paul.
They showed great power, this is true,
But I would never flee from you.
For though your number was complete,
I was not one you could defeat.
When you told me to go my way
I thought I’d have the final say.
When the time came you did flee
With wounds exposed for all to see.
For in your clothes you could not hide
You left without a show of pride.
I was a demon, this is true
All I asked was “Who are you?”

After you give up, if in fact you do :-)
Read Acts 19.

Cardinal Arinze: “If Protestants want to receive Communion, they should become Catholic“

July 13, 2018

“It is very important to look at the doctrine,” he added. “The Eucharistic celebration of the Mass is not an ecumenical service. It is not a gathering of those who believe in Christ and who invent a prayer for the occasion. It is a celebration of the mysteries of Christ who died for us on […]
