Hi Carol.

Black, White, Red, Brown, and sometimes blue if you mess with the wrong guy is the color of this tent we live in.

We in our carnal state identify sadly rank one another that way.

But when we are born again we should Identify one another as equal Brothers.

God bless.

God made all nations of one blood and divided the nations as He willed for His reasons. There is no sin or shame in belonging to one nation over another or one color over another. All men have the same color blood and are all descendants of the same two human parents dating back to Noah and his wife.

Acts 17:26

And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

 

Mishael on Part 2 of why race colors's comment on 2022-04-27 16:01:40:

I did not mean it to say color is a disease. I meant that the blending of the man with the woman, would select color, hair type, eye color, etc. From all the way back to Genesis, the DNA THAT GOD CREATED, is passing through bloodlines. It picks up and Carrie's everything in it.

That's why I think Adams and Eves blood originated ALL elements in every human beings DNA.

I don't think Egyptians are blacker than others because of sun exposure; as scientists preach today. Who knows.

I'm relying totally on what God created and what he used to mold it. Through science we are discovering that DNA is the carrier God Chose.

I look like my ancestors: all of them. They all migrated all over the world, from the lands of Israel. Scientists cannot find the Garden of Eden, even now.

It was in Nineveh, where people were "classed."

Working class, Elite class, Slave, Masters, etc.

God put it in us to carve out our own paths.

Cain killed Abel. Cain left and took the evil with him. Seth carried the DNA of Jesus Christ. God oversaw Jesus's bloodline thousands of years until Book of Luke.

What a Mighty God we serve!!

 

WHY GOD CREATED HUMANS AS HE DID__WHY COLORS's comment on 2022-04-27 15:34:29:

Everybody has different answers for that. I turn to Genesis where God created man. What material was He using?

Genesis 1:26, Genesis 2:7

God FORMED (meaning molded) man from DUST. He made a clay with water. Scientists say our bodies are 50% water.

Then God breathed through Adams nose the breath of Gods life. Man became a living SOUL.

People get confused over Gen. 1:27 because here it says God created Adam "male & female". See Malachi 2:15 "ONE. A Pair.

Genesis 3:18 God purposes to make Adam a help, meet, for Adam.

Gen. 3:21 God opens Adam and takes a rib. God MADE a woman for Adam. They are "married" in verses 23-25

One=a man and a woman. But by the Books Leviticus and Deuteronomy, we see "perversions of the Plan of God". Which still persists in Romans chapter 1. Today it's different; people are having surgery. GOOD NEWS, They can still repent and be saved. God can't fix their bodies, but He will save their souls IF they repent.

Moses's writing of Genesis seems to skip around, but God told him how to write it down.

God planned that children would be born of one man and a woman. A pair. Married in covenant to each other.

Why different colors? God used dust because dust contains ALL colors. I'm an artist, and we use all mediums to make paint different colors and consistencies.

Eve came out of Adam, so her color was his color. Blending their DNA in a child, could produce a child of the color in that DNA. Colors, diseases, etc can happen if DNA is damaged somehow.

One color is not more precious to God. He wanted all colors, or he would've use just limestone or charcoal. He CHOSE DUST.

Satan was still around. He is the ACCUSER; creator of chaos. To hurt Gods creation, he preached Prejudice. We see in Nineveh when they built the Tower of Babel.

One day, Satan will be in the Lake of Fire, eternally.

DNA is not a curse. It has a purpose. Love yourself and love God. Grace is unmerited favor. Ask God for more.

I love you

The sole is clearly visible; the inner line of the "bad" shoe is messy, there is a clear gap between the sole and the upper, and the holes in the sole are circular.

Here God makes everything good and he blesses.God's word is so powerful it creates. God's spoken word was disobeyed. The Word became flesh to save us.

King James Bible

Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. You have to be born again and be a doer of the word to bless our offenders and love the law to not be offended.

Disobedience brought down the human race. Obedience brought man back to God and in the name of Jesus you can come to God. Being a doer of the word is powerful.

Satan comes to take our eyes off the word of God and go by our carnal eyes. We need to hunger and thirst for righteousness. Matthew 22:36-40

King James Version

36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Love is powerful. God is love.

 

Chris's comment on 2020-04-23 05:37:26:

If I could use some of your Scripture references: 1 Tim 3:16 speaks of the mystery of Godliness. What was it? That God came in the flesh. Who was He/What was His Name? You know the answer. And indeed it was Jesus Who was preached unto the Gentiles. Isa 43:10: "..before Me there was no god formed, neither shall there be after me. Amen to that, that our God is from Eternity to Eternity & beside Him there is no-one else. Jesus is certainly not another god formed, He IS God's Word come in the flesh (Jn 1:1-14). Rev 1:13: "..like unto the Son of Man". Left with this description, we could be wondering, but v18 qualifies the Man: "I am He that liveth & WAS DEAD.." Likewise with Isa 43:11: "beside Me there is no Saviour", Yahweh was Israel's Saviour. Heb 1:2: "..His Son..heir of all things, by Whom He made the worlds": the Word's creative work. Not 3 gods.

 

Albert's comment on 2020-04-21 09:30:31:

I agree with you, Juphil. God is not three in one. He has always been and will always be One. Throughout the Bible, God has presented himself as One. (I Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 43:10; Revelation 1:13; Revelation Chapter 5,etc) In fact, He has said if there was another God--He did not him(Isaiah 43:11) When God created man, there was only one other being that possessed His image and likeness--angels. While the Bible says that God counsels Himself, There was no Trinity Present in Creation. In the beginning, was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. God cannot be separated from his Word--the same way we cannot be separated from our words. Our words define who we are. God gave dominion to mankind. Therefore, man is responsible for the mess that man has created. Perhaps one of the greatest commandments was "Hear o Israel the Lord our God is one Lord. Jesus is God in human form. Jesus said "I have manifested thy name (John 17:6) Jesus is not God Jr; He is exclusively God.

God was talking to God, so if God did not talk to him self and reason to himself me and you, would never experience the existence

 

MockingBird's comment on 2015-09-05 12:11:40:

I believe God is talking about He and Jesus : I am made after the image of God : I am not really smart enough to figure that out , So I will take God's word at face value : So therefore God has given to me to have dominion : Authority over all that He created : It does not have authority over me : For example : I go fishing and I command those fish to come to me . As also over all alse : I still have a way to go to be able to get this established in my heart !!!! I have dominion over all : God did not say over man : God doesn't have authority over man : He gave me the ability to make decisions : I choose to make those decisions with Holy Spirit help : That way , I know I made the right choice : I have God's word to be able to discern between that which is Good and evil !!!

 

I love God and Jesus's comment on 2015-07-24 01:07:04:

Jesus says to John, do not worship me: worship God. revelations 22:8-16. He states he is a fellowservant and a Brethren to prophets. Jesus clearly says he is not God, mark 16:19 he sits on the right hand of God. Jesus is the son of God, and says I am the root and offspring of David and the bright and morning star. Authorized King James Bible 1611 Rev 22:16 also in Authorized Wycliffe bible1382

 

Adedayo Mercy's comment on 2015-07-03 08:38:42:

Reading John 1:1-5, we will find out that The Word was with God in the beginning. Verse 1 says 'lInux the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God and God was the word ' '. So if you agree with the Bible, you will know that The word became flesh Jesus . And the Same John 1 says that by the Word was everything made and without Him there was nothing made that was made. That means God was using the Word Jesus to create everything and that means the consent of the Word Jesus , which is also God according to John 1:1 was needed in the creation process. If so, who was God now speaking to that ' 'Let us make man in our own image and likeness? ' ' If not Jesus. Now that said, if you believe in the Word in John 4:24 ' 'God is a spirit: and they that worship Him must Worship Him in truth and in Spirit ' ', then there is no reason for you now not to know that God is Jesus and God is the Spirit. The reason why He is called the HolySpirit is because there can be evil spirit but His own Spirit is Holy. I pray that God explains it to you Himself the Same way He did to me so that no indoctrination will be a veil on your face. Amen!!!

PETER IN THE SAME GENESIS 1:26 YOU ASKED A QUESTION.DOES THAT MEANS THERE 3 GODS.THERE ARE NO 3 GODS BUT THERE ARE 3 PERSONS IN ONE GOD WHICH ARE GOO THE FATHER GOD THE SON AND GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT MEANING THE TRINITY

 

Rev 10:7's comment on 2015-02-22 23:31:11:

John 1:1-2 "in the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God " This word "Logos " that was with God at the beginning was the Theophany before manifested in a Physical body. So God is talking to his Theophany. For example: there 's a body that 's waiting for us as soon as we leave this one, so in there we enter into that body and that 's the kind of body that God was when He said "Let us make man in our own image and in our likeness ". Lastly: According to John 1:1-2,,,that Theophany came down and was made flesh and dwelt among us, to redeem the man.He 's not talking to the Angels nor Trinity, He 's talking to his Theophany.
