God has no use for clocks, but He knows a good time to wake me. Two a.m. It happened
again a few nights ago, and He said, "Make a Bible Game." No details, except the word "numbers." Just
Of course you know what I mean by His "Telling me."
He just puts the idea in my head.
And so here it is. A game of significant numbers that can be used by both
children and adults, in varying fashions. You can ask for numbers and why they're notable, or you can give events and
ask for the number associated with them, or you can give a list of numbers and ask for their importance. Here are some I came
One: God; Two: God and Christ (Father and Son); Three; Father, Son
and Holy Ghost. Five: stones David chose when meeting Goliath; Six: Days for Creation; Seven: First week and also the five
loaves and two fishes Jesus used to feed 4,000.
Ten: Men cured of leprosy by
Jesus; Eleven; Apostles after Judas died and until Matthias was chosen; Twelve: Apostles, and their names on the gates of
the New Jerusalem, which had 12 foundations, and the 12 stones Joshua put in the River Jordan.
Twenty-four: Elders who sit before God; 1,000: Years in the Millennium, and the time satan will be held in
the bottomless put before release prior to going back forever; 1,500: the cubic miles size of the New Jerusalem; 4,000: Fed
by Jesus; and the 5,000 also fed by Jesus.
There are many more numbers in the
Bible, and if someone in the game gives one, have them look it up. You'd do well to have a thesaurus handy to help them
Frankly, I'm a guy, and most of us fellows aren't too much into
family games. But God gave me this, and as I said earlier, it can be used by almost all ages and in a variety of settings.
But I might remind that Judgment Day is not going to be games. Be ready for that.
in the meantime, God is pleased with our good, clean fun, so if there's a gift for the winner and refreshments for everyone,
"Game Night" will probably go over well. Remember, it was God who suggested it!
