Did you know that those of us who overcome in this world (meaning we run the good race and stay true to God, relying on His grace and our faith), God will give us hidden manna, and He will give us a white stone, with a new name written on the stone which no one will know but the one who receives it? (Revelation 2)
And then there's Noah. Talk about losing everything and starting over! It blows my mind just a little to realize that EVERY. THING. was gone except what they had on the boat when the door was opened and they stepped out on Mount Ararat.
It's Not in There:
Speaking of names, in the Book of Esther, God is not mentioned once by name.
The phrases "Cleanliness is next to Godliness," and "God helps those who help themselves" are not in the Bible, though we often hear, "You know what the Good Book says..." as a lead in to these quotes.
