    • Absolutely...which is why the study started with "First and foremost, Know who you serve" and ended with ...Submit to God!!! [James 4:7a]  Be imitators of God! [Ephesians 5:1]  Walk in Christ [Colossians 2:6-9] and by the Spirit [Galatians 5:1,16,22-25]; abide in Christ [John 15:1-7].   Know Your Enemy.doc
    • No argument here brother; Scripture doesn't say one way or the other.  Unlike when Phillip was sent to the exact place at the exact time to witness to the Ethiopean (Acts 8:26), there is no mention of the viper being anything other than a chance happening.  Could it have been as you say?  Sure...but the Word just isn't clear on it.  It is clear that Paul testified to his shipmates that an angel of the Lord spoke to him during the storm at sea and told him to not fear, that there would be no loss of life and that he would stand before Caesar (Acts 27:23,24). So yes...Paul was on a divine mission and a viper would not stand in the way.  My approach to understanding Scripture is to keep it in context (as you have) to the culture and events before and after and look for the deeper, spiritual meaning but I am careful to not base any conclusions on perception or assumption.  I do believe that God is sovereign in all things, omniscient and omnipresent, and that His Holy Spirit dwells in every believer, bringing us comfort, understanding and directing our steps.  We just need to listen and not let our flesh filter His truth.    
    • I think that I should go a little further and give some reason why I made this suggestion. That was not the first time for these Islanders to have come to the aid of shipwreck people, and perhaps not the first time to have Roman Soldier among them.  But this time it was deferent from any other time. In the past the was never any rowment among the survivors, without been absolute in all situations, but at list in this one, the rowmen were convicts, and all the time the rowith  are chain to the ship and go down with it. As a result we must see that the Islanders must have been consern for their safety, and that was a threat for the Surviving prisoners and Paul was one of them. In this story it was the Lord that had appear to Paul and told him to interven on behave of the prisoners and ask the Roman captain to unchained them and it was the Lord who guarantee the safety of everyone.  Saying that we should expect to see how the Lord took them from there and how through the events that took place stopped the Islanders from harming the prisoners and Paul, and how this event with the snake change the Islanders thinking and it was the spring board for the Gospel to be preach in this Island .  What I am suggesting is that Paul follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit to put wood in the fire. Just think for a moment what would have happen if the snake had bitten someone else. For I think that not only that the Lord knew that the snake was there, but the Lord may have guided the snake to be there and that it was not just an accident .  Divine Providence .

      I believe in God, and that there are pieces of him, called love and goodness, in everyone. I also believe in prayer, not the memorized type mumbled in church but the spontaneous kind spoken, ironically, in the last breath of the day, when the lamp has been dimmed and the bedspread drawn down, and it's just you and those pieces of God in you, alone.... I suspect that when a man grows too big to kneel, then he is destined to fall.
