Discussion for Genesis 3

  • Mista-B
    most wont agree with me but the tree of life is clearly "the law" and if the law then "the word" and if the word then "christ" and if christ then "God", and the tree of good and evil also, indicating sin already present in the world? how can this be when everything was very good on the day god rested from his works??

    Adam and Eve are resting in their graves waiting on the resurrection of the righteous.

    Fact God told Adam and Eve to NOT eat of the tree of Knowledge, or they SHALL SURELY die, I am certain they went to hell, GOD means what he says, LOT S wife he said DO NOT TURN BACK , she did and became a pillar of salt. Our life is like a vapor ,we are not promised anything, nor do we deserve anything, But if you are sincere about the Bible STUDY it not just read it, do not turn it into your own satisfaction,GOD made man for HIS purpose ,IF WE ARE sincere New Testament Christians we have an open line of parer 24 7 with GOD. People leave GOD he does not leave them, he will turn his back on you after you keep on doing the same thing over and over again on purpose, called willfully sinning.I have studied the Bible my entire life, I do not own a television ,there is nothing fit on there, I have lived in enough earthly hell I do not want to go there,Sorry this is not just on Genesis But this is where it starts,Love everyone no matter what as if they were the only one, If I can still LOVE my X spouse after 35 years of pure torture,and a dad that was a child molestor,and rapest. GOD states turn the other cheek , DO NOT get me wrong my dad is dead,my x- I do not associate with ,but I will never quit praying for anyone,GOD has held my hand all the way and I failed to even thank him, we expect,how often do we give praise and thanks to GOD for even our breath,I LOVE YOU ALL

    The Judge of all the earth always does right; and its counted for what a man knows; and not for what he doesn't know. He weighs our actions, and our spirits. God hides Himself from man for our good, because sin makes us "not fit for the presence of God." Christ coming into the world was to undo the ruin caused by Satan, so we can begin building up our character in His image and likeness by faith.

    Chapter 3 Verse 22 It say that man ate of the tree of good and evil, not the tree of life. It said God remove him before he could eat of it , so why do they r7n each line together as 1. R the Cherubims/sword still protecting the Garden of Eden.

    Chapter 3 Verse 22 It say that man ate of the tree of good and evil not the tree of life, God removed him before he could eat of it, so why do we run each line together as one.
