Taking a Closer Look

Sometimes an answer to a question seems to avoid us as if to learn the truth would be a violation of some cosmic decree and there it lays, in cheque for too long a time. Have you ever had such a question that floats there, quietly, unassumingly at the back of your consciousness until something clicks and there it is again? The question can nag at you for a time and, if you’re lucky one of two things will happen. Either you will find the answer, or the questions will fall asleep again at the back of your mind until they are stirred again. If it is an inane question, like most of mine are, and you are very blessed, it will lie dormant until Morpheus himself gets strapped with the question as you finally abandon such thoughts, replacing them with more important memories.

That is where we are today. Something awakened a question within me and there it was, destined to poke at me in the smallest hours of the night. And then, it came. The answer was so obvious. Just for the fun of it, let’s make it into a quiz. I started to say ‘trivia quiz’ but I don’t put the word ‘trivia’ with anything from the Bible. It is not, however, any revelation of such a weight that religions will crumble, or renowned pastors will write books on the answer’s cataclysmic effect on faith! The answer truly means absolutely nothing to the truths you likely already know of faith and the Gospel.

Here goes: When was the very first time, authenticated by the biblical text, Moses was in the Promised Land? Be careful how you answer it, this may seem like a trick question.

If you have the answer, or think you do, message me or send me an email. First one to get it correct (that is, correct by the way I have determined ‘correct’ to mean) will win an amazing prize that will render you speechless, overwhelmed and completely amazed at the ability we have to find such rare and unique treasures (yeah right!) Okay, there is really no prize, but you will feel so good knowing you had the answer first!
