Good music is to the soul as a good bath is to the body. We should try to take a good music bath regularly. Here are three very beautiful pieces of instrumental music:
The Biblical book of Genesis Ch. 6 verse 4 records: "There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown." The skeletons of many giants have been discovered over the years, ranging in size from 8.5 feet to 36 feet tall!
For many years sincere Christians worldwide have held the belief that Christ did not have long hair. The reason for that was the biblical statement found in 1 Cor. 11:14 “Does not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame to him?” Well, new research has discovered that Christ may actually have worn his hair a lot longer than we may have thought!
Our modern idea of ‘short hair’ and that of Our Lord’s days are vastly different. Back then hair to the collar or shoulder was not considered ‘long’, but in fact short; a man’s hair was only considered ‘long’ when it passed the centre of his back down to his buttocks. On this information, Christ did not have long hair at all… In fact our modern haircuts of shaved heads and near shaved heads would have been considered a shame in those days by the Christians, as only the pagan religions had shaved heads in their priesthoods (eg: Ancient Egypt and Babylon).Absalom, the son of David the King of Israel, used to poll/cut his hair only once per year, and only then because it was heavy on him because he had very thick hair. The average man therefore, would have cut his hair even less often than Absalom. (II Samuel 14:25-26).
