    Esau means red , a red ribbon was tied around his foot when he and Jacob were being born , to indicate that Esau came out first . Most Bible scholars believe that Esau is the progenitor of the Arab nations . I'm inclined to agree .

    Dear Sherry, same sex marriage Male or Female is a sin like any other. Anyone who consciously and willing continues in sin (any sin) demonstrates that he or she does not believe or perhaps care about what God says. Sadly, if anyone continues in sin, it sears the conscious and darkens the understanding resulting in hardening their heart. God cannot have fellowship with unrighteousness.

    As Spencer wrote, Romans 1 is a good reference.

    A long term sexual relationship (marriage) between a man and a woman is God's design. It is a physical example of Christ and the Church. Ephesians 5:31.. A same sex marriage is in defiance of God's design. How can God bless anything other than what He says is good?

    Please tell your friend that she is being deceived. God will give her understanding if She turn to the Lord.

    Hi Sherry.

    1 Corinthians 6:9. Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? ( Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor ""EFFEMINATE,"" nor abusers of themselves with mankind, )


    Also tell her to read Romans 1:18-28.

    and she will see why and how Homosexuality came into the world.

    Check back with us and God bless you.

    May i give ya my feelings on the Antichrist, no pun intended. We are all Born ANTICHRIST thats y we must be Bornagain, Of an incorruptible seed Even by the living words of God .God wanted to destroy the whole nation of ISRAEL at 1 time b/c of their AntiGod spirit,There was none righteous no not ONE . Thats y he Rebuked Peter calling him SATAN simply b/c Peter had not been converted just yet . Ya gota realize that mans carnal mind is in rank with Satans head. Remember Jesus said outta of the hearts of man proceeds all manner of Evil. Thats y God wanted to destroyed this whole earth @ 1 time b/c of mans evil nature . except for 8 souls via the ARK,A TYPE OF CHRIST . But all souls that has ever lived comes under the blood of Christ . Thats y Jesus said if i be lifted up ( the blood of the lamb ) I will DRAW ALL MEN UNTO ME that has ever lived. Ya gotta realize that the blood of the lamb is the very blood of God Almighty ACCORDING TO ACTS 20. Behold the lamb of God Almighty that is gonna take away the SINS OF THE WORLD NO EXCEPTIONS. That AntiChrist Spirit is still in the earth to day . Darkness has covered this earth and gross darkness the ppl ,Jesus said he was the light of the world but he says the night is coming when no man can work impling A time of spritual darkness when no man can work spritually. Churches on every corner but not a sign of Christ or Godliness anywhere . Its just as Jesus said your house is left unto you desolate . We see that great abomination of Desolation ever where. You will NOT see me till you say blessed is he that comes in the NAME OF THE LORD which is the manchild, the H.G. that is gonna rule all nations after that book is opened ,She brought forth A MANCHILD that is gonna rule ALL NATIONS. Then it says NOW is come salvation and the Kingdom of our GOD and the POWER of his CHRIST THE CHILD, MANS FRUIT UNTO GOD. K LEMME GO. Don't forget that NEW COVENANT the book in the right hand of the FATHER,After it was opened they sang a new song .

    How to prepare for the last days?
  • Rick Colombe - In Reply on 1 Chronicles 1 - 3 years ago
    Thanks Chris! Your comment on relating to the earth being divided seems to make sense. I appreciate your reply.
  • Chris - In Reply on 1 Chronicles 1 - 3 years ago
    The genealogy of Shem (Noah's son) is being recorded here amongst others; it divides between the sons of Eber: Peleg & Joktan. And from Peleg the genealogy goes on to Abraham. So a part of Shem's descendants end in Babylon & the other with Abraham.

    Therefore two lines of humanity diverge at this point: those who wanted to make a name for themselves and those to whom God would make a name, with the call of Abraham. Joktan's line went eastward where the Tower of Babel was built.

    So I understand 1 Chronicles 1:19 & Genesis 10:25 (similar accounts) to show that the "earth's division (in those days)" was because of the forced separation (or division) because of the Lord's confusing of their common language which bonded all the families/tribes to stay together. And this was not God's intention, which required their separation from each other (Genesis chap 11).

    Some might look at that verse as describing the separating of the land into various land masses & nations, but I don't follow that line of thinking in this instance.
  • Rick Colombe - In Reply on 1 Chronicles 1 - 3 years ago
    Another correction. the name of the one was Peleg; because in his days the earth was divided:
  • Rick Colombe - In Reply on 1 Chronicles 1 - 3 years ago
    Correcting myself. The name of the one was Pelegrn; because in his days the earth was divided: Again, anyone know what is meant here? Thanks.
  • Rick Colombe on 1 Chronicles 1 - 3 years ago
    I'm looking for understanding in verse 19 where it states " the earth was divided in those days ". Does anyone have an explanation?
  • Syirra on 1 Chronicles 1 - 3 years ago
    What does The Fist Book Of Chronicles Chapter One talk about?
  • Mickey - In Reply on 1 Chronicles 1:1 - 4 years ago
    Adams son Abel was murdered by son named Cain. Third son Seth was born later. The bloodline that would bring Jesus continued through Seth. All people that carried the bloodline are recorded in the Bible.
  • Adam on 1 Chronicles 1:1 - 4 years ago
    Is this the same Adam as the first man created? I didn't know he had a son Sheth, unless that's the same man as Seth?
  • Shuna Hoshi on 1 Chronicles 1 - 4 years ago
    Praying for the leading of the Lord before reading the Bible.It gives us the leading of His Holy Spirit.Leading us,directing us and giving Revelation of every word of God. Glory to Jesus !
  • Amimo D. on 1 Chronicles 1 - 4 years ago
    its amazing how it travels over time to link generations, this is so sweet to read
  • Thomas A Blair on 1 Chronicles 1 - 4 years ago
    Seeking the story in the Old Testament of the Authorized King James Version of 1611 when the Joshua or some of his "administration" made a contract with Canaanitish people in direct conflict of God's command and clear instruction to not enter into treaties with the peoples of Canaan. They were somewhere in there identified as Nethinim and became servants of the Children of Israel.
  • Cha on 1 Chronicles 1 - 5 years ago
    I must admit that reading chapters with names like these gives me such a headache, then I realized that I was being self-centered and selfish. Our God has given us the means to understand and prove to our own future generations where the authority comes from.
  • Chrissy on 1 Chronicles 1 - 5 years ago
    When people write in the word, they should add pronunciations to some words cuase I was reading it and I could of sworn I was about to pass out, the names were sooo hard that I felt like I was going on a whimb. that's all I want to say. bye.
  • Irene123 on 1 Chronicles 1 - 7 years ago
    To anyone on here, to get a good understanding of these 'tough' chapters, type in 'Matthew Henry's complete Bible commentary' on a search engine such as Ask.com, Scroll to the title I gave you; there is also always a 'concise' commentary, which is shorter for looking for just one or 2 verses. I read just the first 2 -3 pp of 1 chr. 2 - it was so good.
  • To M. Verrell on 1 Chronicles 1 - 7 years ago
    When you want to know about a book, go to the 'commentary' above 'comments'. It's always by Matthew Henry and he is GOOD. It's plain to see the Lord led him to do this. Matthew H. was an English preacher in the 1700's. England was one of the countries where the Reformation took hold and produced lot of men led of God. You can see God was with them in their writings.
  • In HIS name on 1 Chronicles 1 - 7 years ago
    Chronicles is a tough book, but it also is a great time line - when you really learn to study it.
    It's a calendar if you will...
  • Karl on 1 Chronicles 1 - 7 years ago
    to Delroy - I'm reading chronicles and I have to admit it can be hard to get through. Read through the books again, the message is "hidden" in the text. The lessons are not only in what is said, but how it is said. We will see the "lessons" reflected in the text when we learn to see ourselves through the text. The same for all the bible I reckon - hope that helps?
  • Delroy on 1 Chronicles 1 - 7 years ago
    If one does not study Chronicles is he or she neglecting to study the Bible? I know all the Bible is God's word and He has a reason why they are there so help me out here
  • Leonard on 1 Chronicles 1 - 7 years ago
    I know that I'm a year later here but to answer Carl,but here goes... Peleg was born in the time of genesis between Noah and Abraham... the division spoken of is when God confounded the people's language and scattered them abroad so that they would leave off from building the tower of babel
  • Tori on 1 Chronicles 1 - 7 years ago
    Mark V, .... I actually read each and every word/name. The sentiments of my flesh exacting yours. However, my spirit ate it up! Will my flesh recite back all those names? No. When I got to Noah I realized this chapter was somewhat of a fast forward sum up. But my soul and spirit rejoiced when I realized the "bloodline" of Jesus had been revealed. Just know that God makes no mistakes.
  • Mark verrell on 1 Chronicles 1 - 7 years ago
    it is too intense, from the very 1st verse, one needs to be well learned to get the depth of these two BOOKS, (the meaning of every name) who actually reads these books? I am pondering why did GOD put these two books in the BIBLE, I don't want to question GOD because GOD is who HE is GOD the Almighty ALL KNOWING AND ALL WISE so HIS REASONS DO NOT HAVE TO BE KNOWN ALL THE TIME.
  • Rick Taylor on 1 Chronicles 1 - 7 years ago
    perhaps not only the division, but also a key strategic reference to how the latter rain church will be constituted..just a thought though,as I only know the meaning of one name .earthquake..thanks for sharing that b.t.w
  • Carl on 1 Chronicles 1:19 - 9 years ago
    Peleg for in his days the earth was divided. Peleg 6389 Strong 's the same as 6388 earthquake 6388 Strong 's the same as 6385 palag, paw-lag ' a prim. root to split lit. or fig. :-divide The division of the Northern "tribes " from the Southern "tribes " may be the time this name is depicting. Was this in the time of Rehoboam and Jeroboam and the split of the two houses? Why would one make note of an "earthquake " in a name if there was only division amongst the "tribes "? And was this what it was or was there an actual earthquake in diverse places to have divided the people? One may believe it to be a simple thing such as the division of the houses of Israel, but again why would a father name one of his son 's a name meaning "earthquake " unless the land was actually physically divided?
