The First, 5 W's and an H Women of the Bible study


Hi Everyone! Well, I am finally able to start the study! :D I will do as many women of the Bible as I can, in order of appearance, so, Eve is first. The way I shall study it is using the 5 W's and an H. :) Please, study along.

WHO: Eve. The first woman mentioned in the Bible. The first woman to walk the face of the earth. The wife of Adam. The first mother. The first wife. The mother of Cain, Abel, Seth, and many other children. The "mother of all living."

WHAT: What is she? O.k. LOL. She is a woman. But more specifically, what did she do? Why is she mentioned in the Bible? First of all, Eve is the first woman, the first wife, the first mother, and the first sinner...Satan, in the form of a snake/serpent tempted her to eat the forbidden fruit and disobey God. He lied to her, and deceived her. Here is the story, as told in Genesis 3.

Genesis 3:1-7

Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden. And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

WHERE: In the garden of Eden. No one knows exactly where it is, but because of the description given in Genesis, some people think that it was near present day Kuwait, which is the tiny country right under Iraq. Around the area of the two rivers. Here is the scripture for it:

Genesis 2:8-15---8 Now the LORD God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed. 9 And the LORD God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
10 A river watering the garden flowed from Eden; from there it was separated into four headwaters. 11 The name of the first is the Pishon; it winds through the entire land of Havilah, where there is gold. 12 (The gold of that land is good; aromatic resin [a] and onyx are also there.) 13 The name of the second river is the Gihon; it winds through the entire land of Cush. [b] 14 The name of the third river is the Tigris; it runs along the east side of Asshur. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.
15 The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.

WHEN: In the beginning.

WHY: God created woman (Eve in particular) to be a help meet for man (Adam in particular), and a companion.

1. Genesis 2:20And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.Genesis 2:19-21 (in Context) Genesis 2 (Whole Chapter)

2. Genesis 2:21And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; Genesis 2:20-22 (in Context) Genesis 2 (Whole Chapter)

3. Genesis 2:22And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.Genesis 2:21-23 (in Context) Genesis 2 (Whole Chapter)

4. Genesis 2:23And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.Genesis 2:22-24 (in Context) Genesis 2 (Whole Chapter)

HOW: God took one of Adam's ribs, and POOF! made a woman! :D

1. Genesis 2:22And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. Genesis 2:21-23 (in Context) Genesis 2 (Whole Chapter)

2. Genesis 2:23And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Genesis 2:22-24 (in Context) Genesis 2 (Whole Chapter)

How did y'all like it? I hope it was enjoyable, and helpful. Also, I have two blogger friends that are also doing this study on their blogs. Libby and Anna. They started a few days before me, but now we've all done Eve, and Anna's done Sarah too. Please go look at their blogs, they are good friends, and fellow believers. :)

In Christ,

Deck of Cards

I got this in an email forward this morning. It was too good not to share with y'all. If available, get a deck of cards before you read. :)

It was quiet that day, the guns and the mortars, and land mines for some reason hadn't been heard.

The young soldier knew it was Sunday, the holiest day of the week. As he was sitting there, he got out an old deck of cards and laid them out across his bunk.

Just then an army sergeant came in and asked, 'Why aren't you with the rest of the platoon?'

The soldier replied, 'I thought I would stay behind and spend some time with the Lord.'

The sergeant said, 'Looks to me like you're playing cards.'

The soldier said, 'No, sir .. You see, since we are not allowed to have Bibles or other spiritual books in this country, I've decided to talk to the Lord by studying this deck of cards.'

The sergeant asked in disbelief, 'How will you do that?'

'You see the Ace, Sergeant? It reminds me that there is only one God..

The Two represents the two parts of the Bible, Old and New Testaments

The Three represents the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.

The Four stands for the Four Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John .

The Five is for the five virgins. There were ten but only five of them were glorified.

The Six is for the six days it took God to create the Heavens and Earth.

The Seven is for the day God rested after making His Creation.

The Eight is for the family of Noah and his wife, their three sons and their wives -- the eight people God spared from the flood that destroyed the Earth.

The Nine is for the lepers that Jesus cleansed of leprosy. He cleansed ten, but nine never thanked Him.

The Ten represents the Ten Commandments that God handed down to Moses on tablets made of stone.

The Jack is a reminder of Satan, one of God's first angels, but he got kicked out of heaven for his sly and wicked ways and is now the joker of eternal hell.

The Queen stands for the Virgin Mary.

The King stands for Jesus, for he is the King of all kings.

When I count the dots on all the cards, I come up with 365 total, one for every day of the year.

There are a total of 52 cards in a deck; each is a week - 52 weeks in a year.

The four suits represent the four seasons: Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter.

Each suit has thirteen cards -- there are exactly thirteen weeks in a quarter.

So when I want to talk to God and thank Him, I just pull out this old deck of cards and they remind me of all that I have to be thankful for.'

The sergeant just stood there. After a minute, with tears in his eyes and pain in his heart. Finally he said, "Soldier, can I borrow that deck of cards?"

Temptations, a guest post

Every one of us has things that we are tempted with, struggles that are hard to face. They can vary from lying to your parents about cleaning your room to doing something that can endanger your well-being, like drugs. But what do you do when you are faced with those temptations? What can you do to stop them?

When tempted, no one should say, "God is tempting me." For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; 14but each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed. 15Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death. -James 1:13-15

What does that verse mean? Well when you feel the desire, the little voice in your head tempting you to do something wrong, you have to stop it right then. Because once you have given in to that desire and let it resonate in your mind for a little bit, it doesn't sound so bad. It is so hard to stop that temptation once you have been persuaded a little bit.

So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. 17For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you do not do what you want. -Galatians 5:16-17

Don't gratify those desires! When you are living by the Spirit, being renewed everyday by reading your Bible, it is easier to stop those desires. Why? Because you know it's wrong! The easiest way to combat your temptations is through the Word.

One way you can let your sinful desires grow is with guys. Maybe you are good friends with a guy and everything is fine. You are "just friends." But maybe that relationship grows a little bit you start thinking, well maybe it is okay to hold his hand. Nothing will happen. But something will happen. And before you know it you have kissed him. What happened? You let your desire grow, and then it became sin!

So I encourage you to try to stop that desire, that temptation, to sin right when it starts! If you are having issues with lying, look up Bible verses about that and put them on note cards all around your room. You can do it! You can combat those temptations.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to email us at If you would like us to pray for you with something you are struggling with, we promise to keep it confidential and pray for you. :)

In Christ,
Jessica ♫

P.S. Thanks so much Buttercup for letting us do a guest post on your blog! :)

Thank you, Jessica! What a great topic! Please visit their blog, and get to know the girls who make up IHeart. Thanks again!

Why the name?

Hi Y'all! I have thought about doing this for a long time. Why the name? Why Soaring on Wings Like Eagles? Why SoaringButtercup? I will answer these questions, now. :D

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31 (KJV)

Why Soaring On Wings Like Eagles? #1: that's one of my favorite verses. #2: I like the analogy of the verse.

Why Soaring Buttercup? #1: Soaring on wings like eagles was already taken. :P #2: my "name" is Buttercup. #3: (I thought of this after I had picked the name :P) I want to soar. I am Buttercup. I want to "Soar on Wings Like Eagles, just like the verse says.

What does it mean? "But they that wait upon the Lord..." That is the subject, they that wait upon the Lord is the people talked about. defines Wait as, "to remain inactive or in a state of repose, as until something expected happens." (note that I underlined "expected" for we as Christians "expect"/ know that Christ is coming. )But applying it to this verse, it's kinda wrong. For, we are not to remain "inactive" we are supposed to remain active, be witnessing, studying, praying, etc. The Greek word qāwâ is translated not only into 'wait,' but also into 'look,' 'wait for,' 'look for,' and 'gathered.' And means, "to bind together (perhaps by twisting), i.e. collect; (figurtaive) to expect :- gather (together), look, patiently, tarry, wait." But we are supposed to wait in the sense that we shouldn't try to make it come faster.

"...shall renew their strength..." That is what will happen to them, they will renew their strength, they will be stronger. They will pray, read God's word, meditate on it, witness, etc. to be stronger in the faith. The Holy Spirit helps us, helps us renew our strength.

"..they shall mount up with wings as eagles..." What does that mean? Well, I think that it means that they will have, not only new strength, but, they will have something that those who do not wait upon the Lord have. They will be strong, in mind and body, ready for anything. Eagles are a symbol of power, of authority. Compare that with us as Christians. Birds have wings so that they can fly, wings give the bird a means of tranportation. With the exception of birds like the ostrich. :P But the wings do not hold up the eagle alone. The wind/air supports the wings. God didn't just give birds wings, he gave them the wind they need to support them; and not only that, but God gave them the ability to know how to use the wings, as well as the desire/need to fly! Compare that with Christians; God gave us the desire to learn His word, the desire to fly; He gave us the knowledge/resource to learn how to be able to do it, the Bible; He gave us the air needed to support us, the Bible and fellow believers who encourage and lift us up; and finally, He gave us the wings, our bodies, that we can use to move us from place to place, to witness to others, etc, etc. Also, compare the wind that holds up the eagle, to the Holy Spirit. It holds up/supports the bird in flight. The Holy Spirit holds us up/supports us in our flight, so that we are not weary! What does Genesis one say? It says that God breathed into his (Adam's) nostrils the breath of life. The Holy Spirit is that breath, God gave us the Holy Spirit to help and support us.

"...they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint..." Another symbol of how we shall be different, 'cause, people of the world, do not have the strength given us by God, the encouragement from the Bible and other believers, they will be weary and faint, for we have the help of the Holy Spirit.

What's the name of your blog? Why did you name it what you did? I would love to hear from you! :D

Love in Christ,

Hopefully that made sense. :P If you have any questions don't hesitate to comment! :D

The Price of Peace

Did you cry? I almost did. If my dad was still deployed, I would have. I had to share it with you.

Story of Salvation, GFA

Hi y'all!

I get emails from Gospel For Asia. Today, I received a email with a link to a story on their site, here it is: (I'm so happy!!! It copied the pics!!! LOL)

Ministering to a Militant

October 20, 2009

Bharti Holam was a militant before he met GFA-supported missionary Kuman Mahindra. Now, just like this young student, Bharti is preparing to be a missionary.

Gospel for Asia-supported missionary Kuman Mahindra reached out to Bharti Holam even though everyone else was afraid of him.

Bharti had been a high-ranking member of a volatile militant group in Assam, India. Bharti's group was just one of dozens of armed rebel organizations in this region. Each one has a different agenda, but most use the same tactics of intimidation and brutal violence.

When Bharti joined the militants, he thought he'd finally found a place to belong. As a young man Bharti had been an exceptional student—until he got heavily involved in sports. As he spent more time on the soccer field and less time on his academic work, his grades slipped and he failed his last year of school. Bharti found himself very discouraged and worried about the future.

It was at this time that he met some men from the militant group. The men convinced Bharti that he could make a good life for himself in the group, so he joined them. Bharti was very focused, and pushed himself during the training. Upon graduation, he was awarded a coveted spot in the highest cadre of the group. He became fearless and followed orders to the letter, which pleased his leaders.

During training, Bharti was taught that the group only killed people for a good cause, so it was justified. He never questioned this practice until the day it hit very close to home. Bharti learned that his close friend had been killed upon orders from their boss. Bharti suddenly realized that the same thing could happen to him if he ever made one mistake that displeased his leaders.

GFA-supported missionaries take time to reach out to individuals, meeting them at their point of greatest need. That's what happened when Kuman Mahindra ministered to Bharti Holam, a former militant.

Gripped with fear, Bharti sneaked out of the insurgent camp one night. Although Bharti was not a Christian he had learned enough about Jesus to know He would answer prayer. So Bharti fervently prayed, asking God to spare his life. He promised to serve Him wholeheartedly in return.

Bharti returned to his home village, but his reputation had preceded him and everyone was afraid, except Kuman, who allowed Bharti to come and live in his house. During the first week he was there, Kuman told Bharti more about Jesus and how much He loved him. He told him about the Savior who would forgive even his greatest sins. Bharti spent three days fasting and praying. During this time, the Lord spoke to Bharti's heart and he chose to follow Christ.

Kuman discipled the former rebel and eventually helped him enroll in a Bible college. Bharti is now a second year student in the college and, just like before, he is one of the most sincere and hard-working students in the school.

Kuman shared the following prayer requests for Bharti:

  • Pray that the Lord would protect Bharti's life and keep his enemies far away from him.
  • Pray for Bharti's mother and siblings. His father died, and his mother is working hard to care for the family all by herself.
  • Pray that Bharti would be an effective minister of the Gospel when he graduates. His practical ministry internship will start next summer.
So, there you have it. To read the story on their site, click here. GFA is a really cool ministry, I encourage you to look into it. God bless!

Love in Christ,

Btw, I will be starting the study as soon as possible. I've been a bit busy. :)

A New Study!!!

Hi Everyone!!!

Are you ready for me to announce the next study????

Okay, well, here we go!!!

I am going to try to....

do a study on....

drum roll please....

Women of the Bible!!!

I thought it would be a cool thing to study, me being a girl, and almost all of my readers are girls. :D Even if you are a guy reading this, it would still be something cool for you too!

I will be talking about women of the Bible, both in the Old and New Testament. I will be talking about what they did, great and small, good and bad. And YOU can participate! I would love to discuss things with you!

Each post will also have a challenge! As we study the women of the Bible, we will see what they did right, and what they did wrong. We can learn from their example!

I hope to do it more than once a week, but, we'll see. :) I might just do it on Fridays or something.

Libby posted a comment, a question, for me to answer, and, I promise, I will look into that more! And, most likely, post what I find out! Especially since it has to do with girls! :P

Well, I think that's it for now! I hope y'all will enjoy it. :) Please tell me what you think! Maybe I'll put a poll up...

Love in Christ,
Buttercup :)

P.s. Hopefully, I will have a grab box for this button soon. :D
