My Personal Christian Blog

Thanks for sliding into my blog site. This blog bog is a spin-off from my website at Call me a Night Owl, as my full-time mission and hobby are jabbering from midnight until 8 a.m.ish with chatter bugs across the world. Hoot, hoot! Being a retired newspaper guy and a Curious George, I've written and assembled a whack of stuff that I hope you'll find interesting and thought-provoking. Check out the Stories bar on the right side, below, for all my articles - from my web site and this blog.

The "Left and Right" in the Bible

There’s nothing wrong with being left handed, a political leftist, a left-fielder in baseball, or to be accused of having two left feet.

The “left” word, however, does have spiritual implications that most are not aware.

The Bible always links God and His ways with the “right hand.”

The term “left hand path” is an occultism term used mainly by Wiccans and Satanists. They worship false gods and goddesses. I suggest it is correct to say that both of these belief systems were birthed by Satan, the cunning anti-God.

According to Wikipedia, the popular internet encyclopedia, “People who follow the Left Hand Path in the West are not interested in giving up pleasure or the world in order to be spiritual.

“They are not interested in worshiping God or following rules made up by others. They seek to gain power and freedom by breaking through taboos, fears, and restrictions.”

The Bible always uplifts the “right.”

1. Matthew 25:33 - Remember what Jesus said: “Goats on the left, sheep on the right.”

2. Jesus also told Peter that if he wanted to catch fish do it from the right side of the boat. They did and filled the boat with fish.

3. John 21:6 - “Jesus said, ‘Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.’ When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish."

4. Ecclesiastes 10:2 - "The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left."  
5. 1Peter 3:22 – “Who (Jesus) is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto Him.”

6. Acts 5:31 – “Him hath God exalted with his right hand [to be] a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.”

7. Luke 22:69 – “Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God.”

8. Mark 16:19 – “So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.”

9. Hebrews 12:2 – “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of [our] faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

10. Hebrews 10:12 – “But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;”

11. Hebrews 8:1 – “Now of the things which we have spoken [this is] the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens;”

12. Hebrews 1:13 – “But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?”

13. Colossians 3:1 – “If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.”

14. Ephesians 1:20 – “Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set [him] at his own right hand in the heavenly[places].” 

15. Matthew 22:44 – “The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool?”

16. Psalms 110:1 - (A Psalm of David.) The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.      

17. Hebrews 1:3 - Who being the brightness of [His] glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high.
