Long before there was a King in Israel, Edom boasted mighty monarchs! It would be well for the present rulers of the world to consider, "Where are they now?"

The evil influence of Mizraim/Egypt upon the Ludim is full of practical lessons. Let us spend our time with those that help us most in our spiritual pilgrimage.

Mizraim was the father of many peoples and nations, something that he and his offspring no doubt valued. Everywhere in the Scripture, God characterizes children as a blessing, but does our culture value children?

Where did the ancient myths come from? Euhemerus answered, that the myths were grounded in real history. Christian Euhemerists, from the first spread of Christianity into the world, asserted that the Bible provided the root history, but that the history was perverted by idolatry and linguistically at Babel. Can this idea be sustained? What are its implications?
