Verse 4 and 5 spoke to me long ago and made me be prudent .

They say , but do not follow Christ and have no fruit , that's how we will notice the difference. Lip service sounds good , but is only deception . Jesus will reward us for our works , not our beliefs. Be a doer not a hearer only ! But get His spirits leading or it will not work or last .

Just reread Matthew 1,2; and when all the generations had passed Joseph met Mary and they traveled to Bethlehem and Jesus our Messiah was born. Thank you Father for your son; Yeshua Hamashiach-Jesus our Lord.

Just reread Genesis 1 and 2. For all we see is a gift from God; the sea, sky, birds, grass in the fields.

Forgive me Lord for taking everything for granted sometimes. You are good and gracious and loving.


Mishael's comment on 2020-05-26 13:50:26:

Actually in Genesis 4 is the account of Cain killing Abel. Cain was cursed and marked for death.

When Seth was born, the genealogy restarted again. His was the seed that Jesus would be born through.

All genealogy follows the bloodline of Jesus.

Mary and Joseph were remote cousins from the bloodline of King David.

Daughters were only included in the genealogy of the bloodline of Jesus if they were in that line.

What does all this mean to us? God keeps record of all humans and children conceived to them. We're on His radar so-to-speak.


D.J.'s comment on 2020-05-26 09:56:37:

If Cain and Abel are the first two sons born to Adam, then why does Adam's genealogy begin with Seth? Last I checked, a person is not blotted out of his or her genealogy for being a murderer or for being murdered.

Definition of Another by Merriam-Webster --- Another definition is - different or distinct from the one first considered.

John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you ANOTHER Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

John 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.

April, Adam, I believe, was not with Eve when the serpent was talking with her. The serpent was talking to Even when she was alone. Adam was somewhere else in the Garden. But Eve took the fruit and then then gave the fruit to her husband who possibly just walked up to her after she took the fruit. The Bible indicates that Adam knew what he was doing, in 1 Timothy 2:14 "And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression." Adam knew that Eve had sinned and because he loved her he decided to join her in whatever punishment she incurred.


bob Hilt's comment on 2020-05-21 21:07:11:

James I can not find the pre trib rapture either though many others say they do.

When did Jesus say the dead in Christ would be resurrected?

John 6:39-40: Jesus said, "This is the will of Him who sent Me, that of all that He has given Me I lose nothing, but raise it up ON THE LAST DAY.

John 6:44: Jesus said, "No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up ON THE LAST DAY."

Is the LAST DAY the thousand year reign of Christ?

I believe so....then it is eternity and time is counted no more

So if Jesus himself said the dead in Christ will be raised on the LAST DAY, and Paul said we who are alive and remain will not be caught up (raptured) until AFTER the dead are raised, then where does secret pre-trib rapture fit in?

Paul in 1 Corinthians 15:52 - In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

We are changed at the LAST TRUMP and where is this found?

In REVELATION, the LAST BOOK of the Bible there are 7 trumps and the 7th trump is the LAST ONE and is at the end of the tribulation. there is not a 7th last trump prior to the tribulation.

Genesis 3;6 I just noticed that the scripture says Eve gave to Her husband who was with her.

Because the serpent was talking to Eve , what does the scripture mean when it says , Adam was with her when she gave him the fruit?

Thank you

Alex's comment on 2020-05-21 06:40:40:

comments by Alex, Christ didn't come thru the seed of any man thats y it had to be a virgin birth,Jesus was simply the Word ( GOD ) made flesh and blood NOT the written word made flesh and blood but the living word made flesh and blood.Mary was not impregnated by the written word but by the living WORD, GOD ALMIGHTY WAS HIS ABSOLUTE FATHER, Thats y David said its the LORD DOING and is precious in our eyes,Had jesus come thru some mans seed he wd have to be bornagain of an incorruptible seed. But he was not defiled by any mans seed as he said outta of the hearts of MAN proceeds all manner of Evil. And its the things that come from the hearts that defiles a MAN . What think ye of Christ whos Seed is he, they replied Davids seed, But Jesus replied if David calls him Lord how can he be his seed ( his son ). The REASON he always refers to himself as the SON OF MAN IS MANKIND will have to birth a Baby Christ which is the H.G. Mankind has to bring forth fruit unto God which is the H.G. THAT WHICH IS BORN OF THE WORD/SPIRIT IS SPIRIT. TH H.G. is a Living being,our new innerman, that new creature that has to be born in us via his seed th word which is spirit. THATS th only way the kingdom can come is via his seed th word We are gonna birth a baby Christ th H.G. THAT CHILD OF Promise Unless ya receive the kingdom as a lil child etc.Thats y the scrip is saying My lil children of whom i travail in birth till Christ is formed in you thus he is truly the son of man,mankinds fruit unto to God via that good seed. Zech. calls him our 1st born our only son, Smite the shephard and the sheep will be scattered then i will turn my hand to the lil ones his offspring th babes and sucklings, spirits. Th Israel of God that are gonna be born in us via his seed. Thats y he loved that Son of Man title, Th Church is gonna have a baby Christ,Unless ya receive the kingdom as a lil Child.She brought forth a man Child. Kings shall be your nursing fathers n Queens shall be your nursing mothers, ppls

Marie, the only angel I know is my precious love who shares my life & home - and she is beautiful!

But of the other angelic beings, we are not told about their looks, except that sometimes they appear in radiant white, shining, or in human form for a specific purpose. I'm sure they look 'perfect' as God's creations & the fact that outer beauty is of no consequence in heavenly terms. God always looks at the real person (the "heart" as we call it) when he sees us & not like how people generally look at us, at our physical appearance.


Chris's comment on 2020-05-21 02:41:05:

Debra, no, snakes are just part of the animal kingdom created by God. I think you might be referring to Genesis chapter 3, the temptation of Adam & Eve. Satan came to tempt man & woman to sin, and he did so, by indwelling a serpent & speaking to them through it. Obviously, they seemed to accept that this talk coming from an animal was nothing unusual. However, we don't know what form this serpent took; it may well have been a taller animal with legs or such like, but we see that after God cursed Satan for doing this, the serpent was confined to slither on the ground & lick the dust (3:14).

So even though the serpent, as an animal, was cursed, it was so because of Satan's influence through it. It still is an animal that survives today as any other creature, but the evil spirit (Satan) that took it over for the temptation, is the one in question. Then verse 15, gives us the first prophecy about Jesus' Sacrifice: "And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel." This means that Satan will not just attack (be enemies) to the seed of the woman (all of us), but that Jesus (as the pure Holy Seed from woman) will have victory over him at the Cross ("bruise thy head"), as Satan would "bruise His Heel" by filling the Jewish priests with evil accusations against Jesus to crucify Him. So the snake is not evil at all; but Satan is.

Did I miss something?Why everything in reply on Matthew 24:38?But Carlos,thank GOD for the Word that was given for and to us to pay a sin debt that we we could never pay.Jesus redeemed us because we were incapable us redeem ourselves.Thank GOD that He does all the work.Just think for a moment-----GOD.GOD,redeeming us back to GOD(JESUS)He came to bring us eternal life,those who believe in HIM.The law convicts,the Word frees.The law was given as a substitute teacher until the Home room teacher took over.I say this with all joy.Yes Carlos,JESUS said ;My SHEEP hear my voice,and I know them and they follow me.JESUS knows His Sheep by name and when He calls them by name they come forth.James,Carlos,Chris and on and on until there is a number that no man can count.GOD Bless.

CARLOS RAMIREZ TREVINO's comment on 2020-05-20 10:45:16:

James Brooks. You bring up a good point on Predestination, Election and spreading the Word. It brings to mind that the Law was given to stress that all men have sinned. The Word was given to convict us of that sin. The Law condemns us. The Word gives us life. John 3 and Romans 5.

The Law of Moses placed all mankind under sin, even those that followed that were not directly disobedient to God. The Law cannot reconcile us to God. Only Jesus can do that. Therefore, it is essential that people hear about Jesus. See also Romans 8:29-30: "For those God foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brothers. And those He predestined He also called; those He called He also justified; those He justified He also glorified."

Ephesians 1 and John 10 are clear. God has given Jesus a flock and He will not lose a single one. So, the Call goes out for the Sheep.
