On the Patio - Numb Skulls

Though the term “numb skull” sounds like an insult that Moe would sling at Curly of the Three Stooges, I use the expression today to summarize the effect of psychological warfare that has been and is is being waged on our minds by the satanic global elites. While it goes back to ancient governmental manipulation of humanity, the modern form of psy ops has its origins in Nazi Germany and was imported to the US by the OSS, predecessor to the CIA.




 


Article - Fiery Serpents

A study of serpents in the Bible reveals some very interesting types. From the serpent in the garden to the vipers who opposed Jesus in Judea, aka the Pharisees, there is both a genetic and symbolic truth the Lord shows us in Scripture. Perhaps there’s more to dragons than myth and legend!

Brother Scott Answers Your Questions


(Via email)

Scott,

I’ve been listening to your podcast for about 18 months! I love hearing a new perspective on otherwise shallow understanding and acceptance of Bible history.


Christmas Questions ..


Where were the wise men from, and how did they know to follow the star to Bethlehem?


Most of the details of the birth story of Jesus as are commonly accepted are not in the Bible, but are in the apocryphal gospels. For example, The Protevangelium of James.


How should we consider these non-canonized texts? At the beginning of your podcast you discussed a lot from the book of Enoch, what are your opinions on some of the non-canon New Testament writings?


Thanks,

Luke


Hi, Luke.


Thanks for listening! We appreciate you searching the Scriptures with us.


As you may know, I also have a Sunday morning message ministry where I speak on topics more focused to Bible students. I have addressed the issue of the wise men and the star here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3FIOH5NAOM&list=PLOty3zX7iltlsBmAhCS7TTmir9TujjBOz&index=91


Hopefully you will find helpful answers there.


I only approach the apocryphal books from a standpoint of historical significance, not as unerring Scripture. If God had wanted them preserved like the Bible, the Holy Spirit would have included them in the formation of the Canon. I place stronger evidence on those books that are actually cited in Scripture, such as the book of Enoch, but I still don’t hold them as truth.


Yours in Christ,

Bro. Scott

Dear Pastor Scott,


First of all I just want to say that I absolutely LOVE your Bible Mysteries Podcast/YouTube show. You and Xena do an amazing job and I am so grateful. It has strengthened my faith and encouraged me to get more into the Bible myself. My friend introduced it to me a little while ago and I am currently on Episode 77-The Mystery of the Rapture, so I have quite a bit of catching up to do.


My question is regarding children. I am aware that there is not a specific Bible verse that states there is an “age of accountability”, but I was wondering if, with your knowledge of The Bible, you can infer when God considers someone to be an adult or at the very least accountable.


I whole heartedly believe that we are indeed nearing the end times and I worry about the rapture as it pertains to children and whether they will be taken up or left behind. I can’t imagine that our caring, just, and graceful God would unleash his wrath on little ones, but when does He consider them old enough and no longer a child? My children are 8 and 6 at the moment and we talk about God and go to church, but I’m not sure if they fully understand the concept of Jesus dying for our sins and redeeming us from what is to come.


I would love to hear back from you and in the mean time I will continue to catch up on the series! Tell Xena that I said hi and she’s doing a great job!! I love watching and listening to you both!


Thank you,

Your sister in Christ

Jennifer S



Hi, Jennifer.


Thank you so much for listening to the podcast! We love to hear people are being edified by the Scriptures.


As you may know, I also do Sunday morning messages for those who like to dig deeper into God’s Word. I addressed this very subject here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_CIWIhJ2S8&list=PLOty3zX7iltlsBmAhCS7TTmir9TujjBOz&index=41


Hopefully you can find a deeper answer here than I can write in a reply. Enjoy, and I’ll let Xena know you send her greetings!


Yours in Christ,

Bro. Scott

My question is this: is it bad to cremate someone? My brother was cremated and it bothers me. I can't help it. It just bothers me and I can't seem to get peace about that. My thought was always that Jesus was buried not cremated, so I've never been a fan of it. I never thought I would have to cremate anyone in my family, my immediate family that is, but I did have to with my dad and my brother. “From ashes to ashes and dust to dust,” and I get that, and I know that some people who are saved have died tragic deaths. They've been burned and worse things have happened. I just wish I had a Scripture to make me have peace about this, and if there is one, I would love to read it.

Thank you,

Gina



Hi, Gina.


I’ve been asked to speak on cremation versus burial quite a number of times over the years. I do not know of any Scripture that mandates the methodology by which a burial should be carried out, though I know the Hebrews and early Christians buried their dead. What methods of embalming they used, I am not fully aware, though I know Mary and the other women were going to wrap Christ in spices prior to His resurrection.


It would be difficult to demand of believers that a type of body disposal method be followed, since many Christians, and even saints before Christ, may have died at sea, in battle, were burned at the stake, thrown to lions, etc. It would be hard to conceive a righteous God would deny a reward or some eternal future due to not conforming to a particular burial method by a faithful believer whose corpse was abused by his persecutors. If God is able to resurrect a saint who was burned at the stake against his or her will, then He can certainly resurrect a saint who was cremated voluntarily. There is no passage I know of admonishing believers to be buried only.


While the vast majority of verses referencing burning are negative, outside of the burning of sacrifices, there are passages that refer to burning as refining something to purify it. We likely gather the negative connotation of burning as it’s associated with God’s coming wrath. However, Paul referenced giving his body to be burned as an act of selflessness in 1 Corinthians 13:3, "and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.” Obviously, the point is that we need charity or our sacrifices are worthless. I don’t know what giving a body to be burned means exactly, but I assume it’s a reference to being persecuted for Christ’s sake, not an actual cremation by choice of burial. Regardless, even burnt ashes can be buried.


What I do know is that cremation is not strictly a heathen practice, and that burial is not exclusively Judeo-Christian. Both Christians, Jews and pagans have buried their dead. I do not personally believe God requires either option. No saint I can conceive of who died ages ago and was buried would today have anything remaining of their body but dust, and this would be a natural result of oxidation over time. Cremation is the combustion, vaporization, and oxidation of cadavers to basic chemical compounds, therefore it is simply a way to speed up the oxidation process. The Bible says we return to dust in Genesis 3:19, "for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return."


Naturally buried believers, which would have been the vast majority over the centuries, would have decomposed to their basic elements long, long ago. Thus God is clearly able to bring bone and sinew back together from dust as easily as he formed the first man from dust. In any event, I know there is no legal requirement by this government or the Lord to do this one way or another. It’s purely your discretion and a decision to be made with your family.


I pray this gives you some insight and peace!


Sincerely,

Bro. Scott

I have been listening to the Bible Mysteries Podcast since December 2022. At this point I've listened to every episode, some multiple times, and look forward to each new one released on Mondays. It's pushed me to begin a more intense study of scripture that I really should have been doing my entire life.

- Matt A.



Brother Scott, Thank you so much for your Bible Study "All Scripture". Through the scriptures you help us to see the truth, simplify the issues and somewhat relax in these trying times. Just as I'm grateful for grace I'm grateful for your teachings and clarification. I pray for you regularly asking that the Lord will encourage you and continue to give you wisdom which you so so lovingly share with all. Looking forward to the next Bible study.
