There is much confusion in linking the 3am hour to the bible. The truth of the matter is Yeshua (AKA Jesus) was put on the tree at the 6th hour (12–3pm) and he died when the last lamb was killed at the temple at 3pm, the 9th hour, which was also the hour of prayer in Yeshua’s time. He could not have died on a Friday because the last lamb had to been killed at 2pm in preparation for the weekly Sabbath. This was the high Sabbath- the feast of unleavened bread, the confusion comes because the Sanhedrin had combined both feasts into one, where as Yeshua, (not under the authority of the Pharisees) followed it as Moshe (Moses) had originally done. Yeshua had to been the the grave 3 nights and days according to Hebrew reckoning of time and Jonah’s prophecy. Therefore in order for Yeshua to fulfill this requirement he had to die on a Wednesday Passover, in the grave for 3 whole Jewish days and rise on the day of first fruits which would have been the Sabbath that year. Though this is an premise based on deductive reasoning, Yeshua would have been raised at 3am on the Sabbath. He gives a clue in Mt. 14:25–26: “During the fourth watch of the night Yeshua went out to them, walking on the lake (symbolizing resurrection). When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear.” Compare with after the resurrection when He appeared to them in Lk. 24:37–39: “They were startled and frightened, thinking they saw a ghost. He said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts rise in your minds? Look at my hands and my feet. It is I myself! Touch me and see; a ghost does not have flesh and bones, as you see I have.” So why is 3am called the devil’s hour? To make a mockery of Yeshua’s resurrection. Just like Satan hijacked the number 13. The word “Echad” which means “one” has a value of 13 in Hebrew Gematria. According to Yeshua, De. 6:4 5 is the greatest commandment: “YHVH our Elohim, YHVH is “one”. Honor and revere YHVH our Elohim with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.”

My Brewer’s has nothing on this so I assumed that it wasn’t much, then I started doing some on-line research. Good grief, the number of hits is staggering. Here are a few of them.

Wikipedia refers to the witching hour this way; “In European folklore, the Witching Hour is the time when supernatural creatures such as witches, demons and ghosts are thought to be at their most powerful, and black magic at its most effective. This hour is typically midnight, and the term may now be used to refer to midnight, or any late hour, even without having the associated superstitious beliefs. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wi…

The term ‘witching hour’ can also refer to the period from midnight to 3am, while ‘Devil’s Hour’ refers to the time around 3am.” Apparently, the Devil’s Hour is the exact opposite of the time Christ supposedly died at 3 p.m.
It’s been suggested that this is the time of extreme early morning when more firefighters and police are called. That’s true, but then it takes a whole night of drinking to get into trouble at 3 am. It’s also believed that we might be having access to our God figure in that state of mind in deep theta sleep and in between REM sleep. Others think that it’s the extreme darkness that occurs just before dawn that permits melatonin to adjust and create a sleep state that’s in the process of shifting, a time in which we could awaken. It’s also entirely possible that discomfort after hours in our beds is what jostles us awake at about that magical time (especially middle-agers). Whatever the reasoning, any time you’re under extreme stress, you’re likely to wake right around that 3 am hour and not be able to fall back asleep again. Obviously, our bodies are telling us that some sort of stimuli (earthly or unearthly) is creating a dark-of-night awakening.

But nighttime can also play on your senses in a negative or false manner. Since everything is quiet you tend to hear more of the subtle normal sounds of a home or the environment, the sounds that are typically present at all hours. Also, the night is usually cooler. The wood used in houses expands in the heat of the day and constricts at night, causing popping and creeking sounds. The sounds can lead a novice or rookie investigator to believe they are caused by the paranormal. The darkness can play “tricks” on your eyes, fooling you into thinking you see shadows or something that’s not really there; this is especially true if investigating in a wooded area.

There are other speculations about “Dead Time”. Some believe that 3am is actually the devil’s hour. They also believe that 3am is not the time when all spirits are more active, but rather when demons are active. Again, they believe that since Jesus died at 3pm then 3am is the polar opposite. Demons will do what they can to defy Christ and therefore being most active at the polar opposite 3am is what they enjoy. Also, more specifically, 3:33 am is widely believed to be the “Witching Hour”. Supposedly, 3:33am is the time when the veil between the two worlds is the thinnest, allowing the spirits to cross over easier.

In Dutch the hour of the wolf is the hour night turns into dawn, where the dream meets reality and anything is possible. Depending on the season 3 a.m. isn’t far off I guess.

This is from Barry Lopez’s Of Wolves and Men:

From classical times he [the wolf] had been a symbol of things in transit. He was a twilight hunter, seen at dawn and dusk. […] The link between the wolf and a period of halflight—either dawn or dusk, though dawn is more widely known as the hour of the wolf—suggests two apparently contradictory images. The first is the wolf as a creature of dawn, representing an emergence from darkness into enlightenment, intelligence, civilization. The second is a creature of dusk, representing a return to ignorance and bestiality, a passage back into the world of dark forces. Thus, in the Middle Ages, the wolf was a companion to saints and Devil alike. His howl in the morning elevated the spirit. Like the crow of the cock it signaled the dawn, the end of night and the hours of the wolf. His howl at night terrified the soul: the hours of the wolf (famine, witchery, carnage) were coming on. The association is old enough to have been the basis for the Latin idiom for dawn, inter lupum et canem, between the wolf and the dog. Darkness and savagery are symbolized in the wolf, while enlightenment and civilization are symbolized by the tame wolf, the dog.

The only thing useful I got was that vargtimmen (wolf time) seems to be the conventional Swedish term for the wee hours of the morning, and it starts at 3:00 am and runs till pre-dawn.

I’ll note that in pre-Christian Scandinavian mythology the sun and moon were discribed as chased through the sky by wolves. Wolf time precedes dawn. It makes sense and matches what Lopez was saying.

I’ll add that I live on the eastern edge of cayote range in North America. You can sometimes hear them howling in the morning before dawn. It seems appropriate.

Though there are Christians that believe it was at 3am that Jesus was betrayed and arrested, this time is not really in the biblical narrative.

‘Mar 13:33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. 34 For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. 35 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: 36 Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. 37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.’

A process of elimination can produce an answer that fits one of these times as when Jesus was betrayed.

Even (3pm) is the time set when the heat of the day starts to diminish. This would be the 9th hour as spoke of in the biblical narrative. This is the time when the Passover lamb was to be killed according to the law of Moses, thus, this is the time when Jesus gave up the ghost.

The cock crows about 3am. This is when it is written that Peter denied Jesus 3 times before the cock crowed twice.

Morning is the time when the women went to the grave and found that Jesus had risen.

This leaves midnight as the time when Jesus would have been praying on the Mount of Olives and came and found all the disciples sleeping.

“Luk 22:39 And he came out, and went, as he was wont, to the mount of Olives; and his disciples also followed him. 40 And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation. 41 And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed, 42 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done. 43 And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him. 44 And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground. 45 And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow,

With the testimony of the first group of verses of Jesus speaking of the master of the house coming and finding them sleeping places the betrayal and arrest of Jesus during the midnight hour.

Offered in the Love of Christ,

The idea that 3 a.m. is somehow satanic does not come from the bible, it comes from a medieval superstition that any use of the number 3 not associated with the trinity is a mockery of the Trinity.
Thus “three is a crowd” never recite the Lord’s prayer backwards three times, don’t chant a dead person’s name three times in to a mirror or a demon will appear, don’t light three candles of the same splint (which actually proved good advice in WW1 since the third light of a cigarette gave snipers time to find and shoot you) and three in the morning is the time for satanic mass etc.

There is no devil’s hour according to the Bible.

There are many references to those of evil character keeping their business in the dark, but a specific time isn’t mentioned.

That doesn’t mean that certain malevolent spiritual creatures don’t have their preferences for when they prefer to operate their dirty deeds. But no caution is required from us unless we happen to have one of them following us who happens to like three am.

There is no phrase in the Bible left linking a time of the day to the Devil.

The only times that hours of the day are in the Gospels. Those references are to the Roman times, not to our 24 hour clock.

Another pulpit myth, from Darkest Protestantia, I’m afraid.

A heart stopping moment,a cowboy disarmed a criminal with a gun(watch video)

This is the heart-stopping moment a have-a-go hero disarmed a gun wielding robber and then tackled him to the ground as he tried to escape.

The brave cowboy, who coolly removed his sunglasses before leaping into action, even managed to snatch a kitchen knife from the hands of the desperate criminal.

Captured on CCTV from inside a convenience store in Mexico, footage shows the young, armed robbed burst into the store waving a revolver pistol at the attendant.

The mugger then points the gun at the hero, who is wearing a beige cowboy hat with denim biker coat, before turning away to threaten the shoppers in the store.

But taking his eyes off the cowboy proves to be a costly mistake as the hero takes his chance, rushing the criminal and smashing the revolver out of his hand.

Panicked and realising he’s bitten off more than he can chew, the robber tries to sprint to escape but the cowboy grabs him in a chokehold while tries to flee.

In the meantime two store workers rush over to help, with one picking up the gun for safety.

The robber reappears on camera again, minus a shirt which has been ripped from his back by the hulking cowboy.

But desperately trying to flee, the robber then brandishes a long kitchen knife in a bid to escape.

Undeterred, the cowboy manhandles the robber again while the two store workers also step in to disarm the now defeated criminal.

The footage ends with the three men holding the robber down while the store worker is seen on the phone calling for the police.

The clip, which was shared on Reddit.com, appears to have been recorded on April 23 this year just after 11am local time.

Applauding the cowboy’s heroics, Reddit users were quick to praise the cowboy.

One said jokingly: ‘When you threaten an old man, and he takes his glasses off, you might want to reevaluate your life choices.’

Another quipped: ‘He didn’t even lose his hat – not his first rodeo.’

Mzansi celebrities who are queens of Bleaching.

Ohk so being a yellow bone is like a must to become proper BAE in South Africa apparently. It’s crazy to see what lengths people would go to just to appear lighter or have a lighter skin and be able to claim the title of being a yellow bone.

Who ever decided to come out and claim that darker skinned women are not beautiful has really ruined society. This is not only amongst the black society.

Mshoza
The biggest skin bleaching Faux Pas in South Africa was in 2011,when former kwaito star Mshoza, real name Nomasonto Mnisi, announced that she had begun skin bleaching treatments. Mshoza admitted to being unhappy with that fact that she has a darker skin and thought she could be similar to Micheal Jackson. Her unhappiness lead her to lightening her skin with a series of pills and cream treatments.

Kelly Khumalo
If she’s not in the papers enough, Kelly Khumalo has also made headlines for apparently bleaching her skin and becoming a few shades lighter than her normal complexion. It is said that Kelly has been using a cream called Carolight to become a few shades lighter for lord knows what. Drum magazine reported that Kelly and Her sister, Zandi, were allegedly buying the lightening lotion from street vendors.

Sorisha Naidoo
One then sits back and asks themselves, what are these celebrities trying to teach the kids that look up to them? That one should not be comfortable in their own skin and should look to getting a lighter complexion to be able to flourish in the industry?

“According to the University of Cape Town study, about 30% of black South African women are regular skin bleachers. In Nigeria, an estimated 77% of the female population use skin lighteners not with standing the fact that medical research has found that skin bleaching damages the skin, causing thinning, skin sensitivity and red blotches.” –Times Live

Is skin bleaching really the only solution to making women feel beautiful and comfortable in their own skins? So which side of the line do you stand? Are for skin bleaching or against it?
