    Hello JRR

    When Abel was murdered, Cain was left. He went in a rebellious direction against God. When Seth was born, God blessed him and his descendants as God determined that it was through the lineage of Seth that the Savior of Gen. 3:15 would come. Although there is a short account of Cain's lineage. His lineage ended in the flood along with the lineage of any other sons born to Adam after Seth.

    The point of giving the lineages in the Bible is to document the Messianic lineage from Adam to Jesus. It is through the lineage of Seth that the Savior would be born. Noah was a descendant of Seth and only Noah and his family survived the flood to repopulate the earth.

    There are accounts of the lineages of Noah's three sons, Shem, Japheth, and Ham in Genesis 10, but after that, the Bible focuses on the lineage of Shem and then narrows down to the lineage of Abraham through Isaac, though Abraham had 7 other sons. The focus is then on Jacon, not Esau. And then on the 12 sons of Jacob.

    Then we come to the line of Judah, from which King David was born. David had many sons from many wives. But Solomon is singled out. So we have a narrow focus on genealogy in the Bible because it is to show the human lineage of Jesus to show that He is from the tribe of Abraham, through Judah, which qualifies Him to be the Messiah as an Israelite.

    Amen Brother Jesse.

    Thanks for the reply!

    I remember when I would answer everything when in a debate.

    Most was friendly but a few wasn't.

    I've learned to discern when a post is going to go south by the way the question or statement is given.

    Now I just don't read them because I know myself!!

    If I engage it's hard to disengage!

    If I read it and it's something I disagree with that has suddenly become personal to keep from being tempted to respond I just don't read it, Especially if it's been dealt with.

    When I'm contacted directly by a person I read the first line or two and when I see it's going right back down that road, I leave off there from reading.

    This is nothing new from me.

    Once you say you don't won't to discuss soteriology when asked, I don't have no interest in engaging.

    For that it was said I was being disrespectful.

    Brother Jesse this don't bother me at all.

    If nothing else it's a lesson in itself and clarity in what we talk about often. fruitfulness. Everything will manifest itself.

    It's not how busy you are, It's who's energizing the work. He that is energizing you will manifest himself through you whether it be God or Satan.

    By the way me and my wife is going out of the country on vacation tomorrow so I will be out of reach for a week.

    God bless you and all you do.

  • Elijer777
    Isiah 9:15 the ancient and honorable he is the head and the prophet that speaketh lies he is the TAIL. Rev 12:4 and his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven and did cast them to the earth. The tail IS the antichrist. Daniel 8:10 and it (antichrist) waxed great even to the host of heaven and it cast down some of the host and of the stars(1/3) to the ground and stamped(held prisoner) on them. DAN8:11 yea he magnified himself even to the prince (probably arch angel)of the host. Rev 12: 1-5 is giving the bonafides of God's son (Jesus) and Satan's son the antichrist. Rev 12:3 Satan enters and Rev12: 4 says, and his tail drew the 1/3 part of the stars of heaven and did cast them to the earth. Isaiah 9:15 tells you this is the antichrist ( prophet that speaks lies). Daniel 8:10 is talking about the same thing as Rev 12:4. Verse 4b and verse 5 go back in time and tells how Satan tried to kill Jesus but fails and Jesus ascends. Rev12: 6 goes forward in time to the tribulation and Israel fleeing.Heres is what's important Satan sees what his son accomplished by himself and decides to invade heaven with his few fallen angels and is summarily kicked out. Rev 12:10 Satan is kicked out and can't come back to accuse the brethren. Rev 12: 12 this is the 3rd WOE Satan can't get back into heaven and he knows it and he knows he doesn't have much time left. I must stop I am out of time but next time I will tell you why the antichrist was more powerful in heaven than Satan. I am a born again fundamental BAPTIST! I am a researcher and not afraid of the truth. Preachers are myopic and afraid of being ostracized if they were to teach any of this. There are a handful of preachers who know things like this . PRAY ABOUT THIS AND ASK THE LORD IS THIS TRUE!!!!!

    This confirms in John 8:32, we must walk in the truth as it revealed to us by the Holy Spirit of God the Father. Praise God for His Grace.
  • Lilsister1208
    Salah is used to convey a very specific (conventional) form of prayer that is the prayer that we Muslims do as part of the Sunnah of the Prophet that itself was derived from the Sunnah of Ibrahim. To convey this specific meaning of Salah, some times the expression "ritual prayer" is used.
  • Michael homan on John 4
    in the 1611 Jesus says in verse 10,'If you were to ask me for water i would give it to you'.(thats what he was/is doing)

    Beautiful story.Jacobs well was in Genesis,it was old, Jesus shows up there to get a is history..

    word of warning to anyone who reads this,Beware of believing Inaccurate teachings,homilys from a human.

    come on here or pick up the Bible and Confirm what they said is True,Called 'Trying the spirit'

    just experienced it over this chptr.

    when someone says about the Bible that isnt true,wether its intentional or not

    is the anti Christ spirit

    it will physically/spiritually infect a person just because they unknowingly believed something that wasn't True

    if something isnt True,then what is it

    Christ is the Truth,you can believe him 100%

  • Richard H Priday on Psalms 88
    Psalm 88. Probably the most depressing passage in all scripture as to a personal viewpoint of experience in this life. This certainly reminds us of the book of Job. (see Job 30:15 in particular).

    Verse 4 seems to indicate that this person is near unto death and is further supported by verse 6 where it seems the pit of Sheol is nigh. We see that those in that state are "cut off from thy hand" therefore there is no more mercy from God at that point. We are reminded of Isaiah 38:18 and many other passages which show that the dead will not praise God (verse 10). Furthermore; destruction and forgetfulness also describe the fate of those in hell (verse 11-12). Those things which affected our emotions and desires on earth ( Ecclesiastes 9:5) will not exist as the body returns to the dust. However; the soul lives on and for the unregenerate in conscious torment (see Lazarus and the unnamed rich man ( Luke 16:19-31).

    Nonetheless; we must seek His face while He can be found. Job's state wasn't hopeless; and neither is anyone in Christ who truly repents and seeks the Lord. The enemy certainly can have us ensnared in sin; or oppressing us with feelings of hopelessness. We need to confess sin and seek His face; as well as trusting His promises despite circumstances. That is good advice surely in war; famine and other horrendous circumstances that bring us near death as well as seeing death all around us. These passages should remind us to seek those who may be disfigured by disease and to demonstrate God's love through service wherever we can.

  • Larry B. on Revelation 11
    My bro.and sis.allow me to site something to you.Jerusalem is GOD'holy place and he allows no one to stay there first it was destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar then he authorized Cyrus to build the 2nd temple and allowed Israel to be his worshippers again inspite of their failure read Ezekiel 43 so that you can see how Israel do his part because of that he allowed the second temple be destroyed by the Romans and this time came the total destruction of the Jews. But allowed the men from the east to be his worshippers jesus also knew it John 4;20 24 the FATHER wanted worshippers that will worship him in spirit and truth. Many can't accept this including USA,BRITAIN AND THE present day Jews, and GOD THRU rev. 11 narrated what will happen. And today you can see clearly that the Jews are trampling al aqsa mosque.pretending it's not the temple.BUT UNFORTUNATELY IT IS THE TEMPLE,that's it's location is in the exact place of the temple. But all this thing in rev 13 .continuing of rev 9

    Son of god

    before jesus was ever born of the virgin mary: he was a son of god the right hand of the father, the angel of he lord.

    from the beginning he was the son of god.

    he laid down all that glory, to be born of a woman.

    he became son of man, just like we a the son of man.

    he came as one of us, son of man, to die like one of us.

    but his resurrection change everything, as we died with christ as a son of man; we also rose with christ, no longer a son of man: but a son of god, the exact same thing christ was from the beginning.

    believe o ye promised seed of israel.

    god bless you!

    Salvation; the gift, by god's grace

    being saved and being born again are two completely different things.

    romans 6:23 the wages of sin is death, the "gift" of god is eternal life through (the resurrection) of jesus christ.

    jesus and all mankind died on the cross of passover, because jesus was raise from the dead; by the spirit of his father, death has passed over all mankind.

    1 corinthians 15:22 as in adam all die, even so in christ (by his resurrection) shall all me made alive.

    this happen 2000 years ago, yet man want believe god's word; mankind was saved from death by christ's resurrection, 2000 years ago: god's "gift" by the resurrection of christ.

    salvation from death; has nothing to do with your works, it was given to you before your were even born: humble yourself before god.

    isaiah 52:5 name is continually ever day blasphemed.

    my people; by that resurrection, you and christ together were made one: you were bonded; married to christ, a new creation, your the body in the marriage, christ is the life of that marriage.

    philippians 2:13 for it is god "his life" that worketh in you "his body" both to will and to do his good pleasure.

    by that resurrection you were married to christ: you now bear his name.

    acts 2:38 "repent" ( of your false beliefs), and be ye baptised in the name of jesus.

    revelation 3:12 ...and i will write upon him (my wife) my name ....

    matthew 22:14 many "all" are called (to be save from death: the "gift" of god), few are chosen (to be judges) in the kingdom of god.

    those born again by the word's of god, will be judges; on the earth, when christ subdues all under him: the kingdom of god.

    1 peter 1:23 being born again, not of corruptible seed, but incorruptible seed, by the word of god, which liveth and abideth forever.

    god word is truth and life, a kingdom.

    god bless you!

    The body of Christ. ( Eph 1:22-23) And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the (church). (23) Which is his (body), the fulness of him that fitteth all and all. The word (church) is # 1577; it means a calling out, a popular meeting. The word (body) is #4954; it means of a joint body, a fellow member of the Christian community, of the same body, union, with or together, "safe" to save, deliver or protect. ( Rom 12:4-5) For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: (5) So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one (members) one of another. The word (members) is #3196; it means a limb or part of the body. ( Eph 3:6) That the Gentiles should be (fellowheirs), and of the same body, and (partakers) of the promise in Christ by the gospel. The word (fellowheirs) is #4789; it means a co-heir, participant in common, fellow (joint)-heir, heir together, heir with, union with or together. The word (partakers) is #4830; it means a coparticipant, union, with or together, by association, companionship, addition. ( Mt 20:16) For the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be (called) but few (chosen) The word (called) is #2822; it means invited, appointed, or specifically a saint, an invitation, calling. The word (chosen) is #1588; it means select, by implying favorite, (elect), to select, make choice, choose (out).

  • Richard H Priday on Psalms 87
    Psalm 87. When we compare God's foundation in the holy mountains (v. 1); we also see how Satan would want to establish a foothold there we are reminded of Daniel 11:45 and some other verses in that chapter auch as verse 19 discussing fortresses.

    Verse 2 discusses the gates which would protect the outskirts of the city and also the Temple.

    We see the east gate mentioned in Ezekiel 44:2 where Christ will return in the future. That history is intersting as to how it was shut in and kept from intrusion in the past during the Middle Ages. (see history of Saladin).

    The city of God will be where Christ rules in the Millennium and then in all eternity the Heavenly Jerusalem will come down to earth at that location. (v. 3).

    Verses 4 through 6 are indicative of Christ as well; as it is mentioned that a number of nations will recognize the importance of the birth of this unnamed famous person there. Verse 5 indicates further that he will "establish her" which again indicates the future reign there. Verse 6 seems to indicate God's role call; or perhaps the Book of Life or those physically dwelling in Israel in the Millennium (commentaries debate this). It is interesting that Christ is also counted as everyone else in that number.

    The last verse of course could refer to literal springs or it could be figurative. Such verses as Ezekiel 47 show a literal fulfillment. We see the praise of God of music which again would be a future event so that it finally can fulfill the prophecy of being a place of prayer for all nations ( Isaiah 56:7 quoted in Mark and Matthew's gospels).
  • Richard H Priday on Psalms 86
    Psalm 86 (part 2). Further study in the psalm leads us to verse 9; where there is the future plan of God to have ALL nations come before God in worship and praise. This would be an allusion to the many verses indicating the Millennial rule of Christ over the remaining surviving people on the earth as well as His glorified saints ruling and reigning with Christ.

    Vsrse 11 shows the importance of the fear of the Lord; and verse 12 shows how praise with all our hearts will glorify His name forever (also see Exodus 20:3; Deut. 6:5).

    Verse 13 shows how David was delivered from the "lowest hell". We certainly can't claim that hell wasn't referred to in the Old Testament with numerous references in Psalms; Deuteronomy; Proverbs and other scriptures. Once again verse 14 shows the type of "violent men" that pursued David; on and off throughout his lifetime; some cases of which later on were a chastisement due to David's transgressions; such as 2 Samuel 12:9-12). Perhaps verse 16 referring to the son of thy handmaid means that David's mother was still alive at the tie of this writing; I am not sure.

    The Psalm ends with David reflecting on God's mercy and longsuffering characteristics. The last verse reminds us of Psalm 23 where a table is presented before our enemies ( Psalm 23:5).
  • Richard H Priday on Psalms 86
    Psalm 86. Here; after a long succession of Psalms attributed to others; we once again find a Psalm of David. Perhaps the reader can do further investigation to determine the approximate time in David's life when this was written.

    We see in the inception of the Psalm in the first 4 verses characteristics of those which are of a "broken and contrite" spirit as Psalm 51 also describes. There is a "poor and needy" attitude (verse 2) and an attitude of submission as a servant (see verses 2 and 4). Finally; we see the characteristic of mercy in verse 3 as there apparently is a daily petition of crying to God.

    The concept of trust in verse 2 is something that should be pondered more frequently as our attitude there affects how confident we are to God being faithful to meet our needs as well as working all things to the good for those who love Him (see Romans 8:28).

    These characteristics allow us to converse and plead with God to attend to our requests (verse 6) and to answer in the day of trouble (verse 7). This is contrasted with such verses as Micah 3:4 and others which show the Lord will not hear the cry of the wicked in the day of their calamity because they are trying to avoid the consequences of their sins and sadly are too late for His saving Grace. Therefore; we must heed to not blowing God off; thinking that His patience will endure until we decide we are ready to "accept" Him. Salvation involves a relationship on HIS TERMS and according to His sovereign will and plans; of which we only can see a glimpse. These stipulations also are predicated on worshipping the true God (verse 8) and not the idols that other nations extol at their own peril ( Judges 16:29). In that story Sampson was shown in the end to know the Lord but reminds us of 1 Corinthians 3:12-15 of those who suffer loss of reward due to sinful living. The wicked there; nonetheless died in the midst of idol worship which should be a strong warning against any false religions today.
  • Crystalfaithe on Jeremiah 2:7
    Melody Williams, It has been 3 years since you asked your question if we think this virus is a plague. I can tell you after living through it for 3 years that yes, it is. We are living in the end times and Jesus will be returning soon. These are the times of Noah and Christians are being persecuted very strongly! These are times to get your heart right with God and pray for forgiveness for all your sins. Peace be with you and God bless
