- Jewish Publication Society Bible
6:3 My spirit shall not always strive with man - The spirit then strove by Noah's preaching, #1Pet 3:19|, and by inward checks, but 'twas in vain with the most of men; therefore saith God, he shall not always strive, for that he also is flesh - Incurably corrupt and sensual, so that 'tis labour lost to strive with him. He also, that is, all, one as well as another; they are all sunk into the mire of flesh. Yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years - So long will I defer the judgment they deserve, and give them space to prevent it by their repentance and reformation. Justice said, cut them down; but mercy interceded, Lord, let them alone this year also; and so far mercy prevailed, that a reprieve was obtained for six score years.

As a result of the fall, all of the creation is under the curse of sin or better explained in Romans 8:21, the bondage of corruption. Had the man been allowed to eat of the tree of life, corruption through decay, disease and sin would make us walking dead. In another act of mercy, The Almighty limits our time in these fleshly bodies. An even more interesting question is what bodies do we inhabit until we receive eternal bodies like Christ 's at the final judgement.

There is a time for judgement to those who rejects the truth. Just as Noah build the ark and the flood came. Jesus is coming back then after that the judgement

2 Thessalonians 2 7 12 is a good example of Genesis 6 3.

@Ronald Allen, . (regards to Jubilees), . I get 7000 years from the birth of Adam till judgement (by a different route I think) but it seems (since prophecy is foggy anyway) , That in the way I get there, we are in the last 1000 years, we are that generation.

I really would like to know the correct translation to the two separate ideals of "also is flesh", and or "man is flesh" . .

(the lord said my spirit will not always strive with man)I've been fortunate enough to have the presence of the spirit of god in me for many months and then not. what its means to me in my life is that god is showing me or reminding me that he's the light, not me
the light, not me
Evang. E, Williams's comment on 2013-09-12 09:24:05:
Since God is full of grace and mercy, he has lots of patience with mankind. He doesn't always send his wrath upon disobedience right way. He gives mankind time to repent. But eventually God says enough is enough.

Ronald Allen's comment make sense to me, I think maybe God is in the process of withdrawing his spirit from this world at this time, a day is as a thousand years, so we may be in the latter part of the last day. I think it is getting late for everyone.

the holyspirit does not abide in somebody whos carnal.
Ronald Allen's comment on 2012-03-15 03:07:40:
There is always a reason for everything God does, and giving a 120 yrs reprieve before judgement was passed upon man and all life destroyed, gave Noah time to build the ark, but could the 120 years also refer to time allocated until our final judgement? Let me explain, a jubalee is a time of renewal and forgiveness or a new beginning, and a jubalee is once every 50 years, so could it be that mans allotted time before Christ returns be 120 jubalees, or 6000 years? He said we don't know the day or the hour, only the Father knows but those who are Christians would know the time or season of his return, and we are actually in the 120th jubalee which ends 2023 on the feast of trumpets.
