Subject: Bible Puzzle, help needed
#### Hi all, a few months ago, a friend sent the following to me. I took it to some friends who are more knowledgeable, than I am about the Bible. They in turn took it to others. So far, they have only been able to come up with 15. There are supposed to be 16. I sure would like to know the answers to this. I also hope someone out there will enjoy it too. bye, #----------*
Can you find sixteen books of the Bible?
I once made a remark about the hidden books of the Bible. It was a lulu, kept people looking so hard for facts and for others it was a revelation.
Some were in a jam, especially since the truth finally struck home to numbers of readers. To others, it was a real job.
We want it to be a most fascinating few moments for you.
Yes, there will be some really easy ones to spot.
Others may require judges to help them. I will quickly admit it usually takes a minister to find one of them, and there will be a loud lamentations when it is found.
A little lady says she brews a cup of tea, so she can concentrate.
Relax now for there are really sixteen names of the books in the Bible in this story (one preacher found fifteen books in 20 minutes...but it took him three weeks to find the sixteenth one.)

Subject: Bible Riddle **Thank You Sharon**
Adam, God made from dust,
But thought it best to make me first.
So I was made before the man,
A part of God's most holy plan.
A living "soul" I became,
But Adam failed to call my name.
I did my Maker's law obey,
Nor ever went from it astray.
Thousands of miles, I go in fear,
But seldom on earth do I appear.
For purpose wise, Which God did see,
He put a living "soul" in me.
A "soul" from me God did claim,
and took from me the "soul" again.
So when from me the "soul" had fled,
I was the same as when first made.
Without hands or feet I go,
I travel on from pole to pole.
>From my presence a rain does fly,
A cloud I form beneath the sky.
I labor hard by day, by night,
To fallen men I gave great light.
Thousands of people, young and old,
Did by my death great light behold.
No right or wrong can I conceive,
The scripture I cannot believe.
Although my name therein is found,
They are to me an empty sound.
Now when these lines you slowly read,
Go search your bible with all speed.
For that my name is written there,
I do honestly to you declare.

21 Books In The Bible Puzzle
I once made a remark about the hidden books of the Bible.
It was a lulu, kept people looking so hard for facts. For others it was a real revelation.
Some were in a jam, especially since the names of the books are not capitalized.
But the truth finally struck home to numbers of readers.
It should be a most fascinating few moments for you.
Yes, there are some books that will be a hard job to find, but those are the most fun.
Can a human being really find all twenty-one of them? At the worst, you should find fifteen.
No defect in the genes is required, although I will admit it usually takes a minister to find one of them and there will be loud lamentations when it is found.
What will keep you from answering this challenge? A little lady says she brews a cup of tea so she can concentrate better.
How long you keep working on it only you can judge, so long as you try to compete.
Remember, we've had fun seeking out 21 books of the Bible, but it is by far more important to "seek first his kingdom and his righteousness." It's always true, God loves you.
