    Hi Jesse I noted that you state Enoch did not die but according to hebrews 11: 13 in the context it says these all died in in faith and that includes Enoch. Just an observation.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Daniel 5
    Hello Ralph,

    Are you looking for the meaning of the word translated? If so, it literally means transferred. By faith, Enoch was transferred that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had transferred him: for before he was transferred he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

    This is a perfect example of the application of these two types of faith, human, and spiritual. I have yet to hear any of the "human faith" teachers, which are numerous and many, say "You know, if you had enough faith, you wouldn't have to die, you'd just get transferred up into heaven. Nobody'd done that one yet!

    It was by faith that Enoch was transferred because God transferred him. Faith is the name of the entire process in which Enoch was taken up into heaven. It is a word that describes what God did to Enoch. It wasn't that Enoch was here on the earth, and reached a point in his relationship with God that he had so much faith that he believed that he could be transferred up into heaven and not die, that God says "I'm pleased with that, so I think I will bring you up here." It's a word that describes what God did. The principle of faith is given in Hebrews 11:6.

    I think the scripture reference used is Hebrews 12:1

    In context Hebrews 10:35-39, Hebrews 11:1-40, continues = Hebrews 12:1-11
  • Women Making a Difference - in Reply on Isaiah 3
    Thank God for your faith.

    You may be edified by viewing some of Iverna Tompkins videos on YouTube.

    We are all people of these difficult times and days. Women need encouragement to evangelize the women who are needing it. I am not saying: revolution. We can all see of women in Jesus's life on earth, and all through the New Testament, who helped as they could and made a difference. Were written of, in the Bible. Hebrews 11

    It's just as important to raise our children with confidence in Jesus, to walk with them too.

    We're not orphans. We're adopted by the "spirit of adoption", and legal children of our Savior and King.

    I woke up this morning with Exodus 2 : 2 on my mind, Pharoah's Daughter came to the Nile to wash but she found a Child in the River and it was hid in an ark . Thats US we come to the River of life to wash ( The living Word ) Repentence, My Words are spirit and life but there is a Child hid in the Word which is the Good seed that is gonna form Christ in us . These things are hid from the wise and prudent but revealed unto Babes ,Unless you receive the Kingdom of God as a lil CHILD you will in no wise enter there in . B/C i have spoken these words sorrows have filled your hearts a spritual pregnancy Real Faith is a spritual pregnancy Thats y its the substance of things hoped for ( th Child ) the evidence of things not seen a baby Christ the H.G. the Child of Promise that has been fomed in US . Hebrews 11 : 1 Even in the natural when a woman is expecting she has the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen which is her Baby Thats y Hebrews 11: 1 is telling us that Faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen , its telling us there is a Child a Baby Christ in the River of life which is H.G BAPTISM. The Child of PROMISE . She brought forth a Child that is gonna rule all nations simply b/c he is gona be born in the Hearts of every man Rev. 12 : 5 KJV

    Let's start with scripture.

    2 Esdras 6:47-52 your reference

    Genesis 1:20-22 * one translation of the Bible I recently read: instead of "whales" says "Monster/s" , Jerusalem Bible translation says"great serpents", NIV says "great creatures " , Jubilee Bible 2000 translation says "And GOD created the great dragons" several other translations say "great sea creatures". = (Huge water creatures.)

    My 1st thought is the " dinosaur" namely "Brachiosaurus" & "Brontosaurus" [quotes- for names today?]

    Job 40:15 , Job 40:15-24,

    Job 41:1-10 Leviathan

    Bel and the Dragon 1:23-28

    Genesis 5:24, Jude 1:14, Hebrews 11:5,

    Linage to CHRIST Luke 3:37

    Opinion : Is Enoch symbolism for Huge in The Faith?

    You are blessed. It takes very great faith to leave the results in Gods capable hands.

    Your prayers are powerful.

    Hebrews 11:13

    These all died in faith, not having received the promises, BUT HAVING SEEN THEM FROM AFAR, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.

    Ephesians 6:13

    Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and HAVING DONE ALL, TO STAND.

    This is what we do for our unsaved loved ones. We pray and keep them lifted up, before Gods throne. We ask that laborers in the Harvest, to be sent to them, in their every day lives. We WAR against Satan from blinding and stopping up their ears to hear.

    Then just open your arms to freely love this person and bless with kindness.

    Yes Mary was his Mother but he spoke of another mother as them that hears the Word that good Seed and keeps it which is gonna result in a spritual pregnancy, b/c i have spoken these Words ( his seeds ) sorrows has filled your hearts .when a woman is in travail she has sorrows b/c her hour is come but after the Child is come her sorrows are turned into JOY. The Child is the H.G the child of Promise as that which is born of the spirit is spirit, thats the H.G the Child of Promise.When he breathe on them that was his words his seeds of God the H.G. To whom his words came it made them Gods ( the H.G. ) THEY WERE FILLED WITH THE H.G. ) the very kingdom of God was within them but he had to give them up till the woman is in travail etc as Micah 5 says. And Hosea 6 : 2 after 2 days will he raise us up. And on the 3 rd day shall we live in his sight.. Real Faith is a spritual pregnancy thats y its the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen which is the H.G THAT CHILD OF Promise ( our new birth ) Even in the natural when a woman is PREGNANT she has the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen the HER Child.

  • WHAT PLEASES GOD? - in Reply on Matthew 6
    Romans 8:6-9

    6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

    7 Because the CARNAL mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

    8 So then they that are in the FLESH cannot please God.

    9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

    Hebrews 11:6 (View whole chapter)

    But without faith it is impossible to PLEASE him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

    Mishael: the 11th Chapter of Hebrews is known as "THE BOOK OF HEROES OF FAITH".

    We all walk by faith and not by sight.

    And God tests us in little things first. Tithing is a total work of faith. On Christmas Eve, I and my son were sitting at a traffic light. We saw an old man cross in front of us; head down in the freezing rain. All the money I had was 20 dollars for Christmas dinner. I asked my 8 yr old son if we should, and he shouted YES. I jumped out and gave the old man a hug and said Blessed Christmas and gave him the 20. We both thought upon him the next day. He was our Christmas blessing! Friends called and said to come over and eat with their family.

    It doesn't take great faith. Just simple obedience to the Holy Spirit; who IS God. He never asks us to do impossible feats of faith: just ordinary things.

    What will we do if the Holy Spirit taps us on the shoulder and asks us for a small act of faith?

    The right answer to your question of what pleases God, is to be a person of faith. Like Jesus.
  • Jorge Castillo on Malachi 4
    Hebrews 11:5

    "By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God."

    Ecclesiasticus 44:16

    "Enoch pleased the Lord, and was translated, being an example of repentance to all generations."

    Genesis 5:24

    "And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him."

    SO WAS ELIJAH: 2nd Kings Chapter 2:11 And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. 2nd Kings 2:12 And Elisha saw it, and he cried, My father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof. And he saw him no more: and he took hold of his own clothes, and rent them in two pieces. (ELISHA was witness of it.)

    Those 2 words are not in the King James Bible. You can verify by using THE SEARCH BOX.

    The word you will find in the Bible is COVENANT. It's stronger than the other two words.

    John Chapter 16:7

    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.

    8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

    9 Of sin, because they believe not on me;

    10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;

    11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

    Hebrews 11:1 - Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

    Examples of COVENANT

    Ezekiel 16:60

    Nevertheless I will remember my covenant with thee in the days of thy youth, and I will establish unto thee an everlasting covenant.

    Genesis 17:13

    He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant.

    Leviticus 26:42

    Then will I remember my covenant with Jacob, and also my covenant with Isaac, and also my covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the land.

    2 Kings 23:3

    And the king stood by a pillar, and made a covenant before the LORD, to walk after the LORD, and to keep his commandments and his testimonies and his statutes with all their heart and all their soul, to perform the words of this covenant that were written in this book. And all the people stood to the covenant.

    Hi Adam,

    I understand your frustration and I feel the same way. In this world, nothing saddens me more than unbelievers and how it makes God feel.

    Ephesians 4:18

    They are darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, due to their hardness of heart.

    2 Corinthians 4:4 important

    In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

    People's Bible Notes for 2 Co 4:4

    The god of this world. See Joh 12:31,40 Php 3:19. Satan is called the prince of this world, and the god of this world. Hath blinded the minds of them which believe not. By his devices he blinds the eyes of men so they should not see the light of gospel. The image of God. He who would see God may see him in the face of Christ. See Joh 14:9.

    Revelation 21:8

    But as for the cowardly, the "faithless", the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death."

    2 Corinthians 6:14

    Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?

    Hebrews 3:12

    Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God.

    Hebrews 12:14

    Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord.

    John 3:18

    Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.

    Hebrews 11:6

    And without faith it is impossible to please him for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.
  • D W L
    Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let US (not me) make man in OUR image, after OUR likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

    Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

    Matthew 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

    Sometimes people spend their time trying to prove someone else is wrong (must be worried) not leading others to believe in being (born again - new creature), (repentance - turn), faith - hope - charity. Heaven is real, (Hell - lake of fire is real Luke 16:23) Eternity is never ending. Mark 9:44, Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

    Mark 3:29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:

    Hi Richard.

    Part 1.

    I personal believe they are, I believe they're saved by the same means as everyone else. Faith in the sacrificial lamb our Lord Jesus Christ. I believe the skins provided by the Lord himself speaks of that. The Lord speaks to us by Allegories, similitudes, ect.. And we know they brought sacrifices to the lord and all these sacrifices pointed to the Lord .

    Genesis 4:4. And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering: " This was asked of them" As I will attempt to bring forward with more scripture.

    Hebrews 11:4. ( BY FAITH ) Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh. "We know faith comes by hearing". Romans 10-17. So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

    Christ was foreordained to come into the world to make remission for sins before the world begun.

    And before Adam and Eve sinned.

    Ephesians 1:4.

    1 Peter 1:20.

    Titus 1:1-3.

    While we are on this topic conjectural view I have.

    Look what happens immediately after they have bitten of the tree of knowledge.

    Genesis 3:7. And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

    "It seems them knowing they were naked was the main reason to keep them from eating on the tree of knowledge."

    The tree of knowledge was the focal point before they ate, Them knowing they were naked is the focal point afterwards.

    And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?

    And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was "naked;" and I hid myself.

    And he said, Who told thee that thou wast "naked?" Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?

    Part 2.

    Consequences of knowing.

    GOD BLESS.
  • Earl Bowman - in Reply on Genesis 1
    Brother S Spencer, I don't disagree with one single word you wrote. God is so far above our understanding it's mind boggling. He gives us his written word to study with out literal eyes and the living word LIVING IN US to barely glimpse and understand the next world, when we will live in the same glory with Christ as he had with the Father before the foundations of the world.

    The literal sun cannot exist and burn as literal fire without Christ (by him all things consist)(our God is a consuming fire). Yet; on the other hand, this same literal fire can LIVE IN US as spiritual fire, mind boggling.

    The literal sun (Christ) gives literal light the same literal sun (Christ) LIVES IN US and gives us spiritual light, mind boggling.

    Hebrews 11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so the things which are seen (literal things) were not made with things which do appear (can be seen, but by SPIRIT which can't be seen). All things are Spirit, some appear as literal.

    Hebrews 13:2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers (can be seen): for thereby some have entertained angels (can't be seen) unawares.

    Spirit can manifest as literal. Christ is SPIRIT but can stand in the literal.

    How great the MYSTERIES OF GOD.

    Revelation 6:9 And when he had opened the sixth seal....

    Jesus is telling (not literally) the saints in the Old testament (those described in Hebrews 11) to wait a while longer and they would be glorified at his resurrection.

    Revelation 6:12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

    This fulfils the prophecy in:

    Joel 2:31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible DAY OF THE LORD come.

    The DAY OF THE LORD came when Christ was crucified and resurrected.

    Matthew 27:45 Now from the sixth hour was there darkness over all the land until the ninth hour.

    Matthew 27:51 ...And the earth did quake ....

    John 19:34 ....And forthwith came there out blood...

    Matthew 27:52 And the graves were opened, and many bodies of the (old Testament) saints which slept AROSE,

    Matthew 27:53 And came out of the grave after HIS RESURRECTION, and went into the holy city (new Jerusalem), and appeared to many.

    This is the one hundred and forty four thousand that are sealed in Revelation 7.

    Revelation 8:1 And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.

    This fulfils the prophecy in:

    Daniel 12:11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away (Christ replaced it with his death) and the abomination that maketh DESOLATE (Jesus had to become your life) set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days (42 months, Christ ministry on earth).

    Daniel 12:12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.

    There was 45 days of silence between Christ Resurrection and Pentecost then the Holy Spirit was poured out on man (Christ second coming).

    Salvation in the Bible is as simple as to belief in God and that he sent his son to die for your sins, "True repentance" and this is the message that John the Baptist was preaching, is repentance from false beliefs and turn to the true God, repent of sin for salvation is never taught or mentioned in the Bible, that would be works and not by faith alone. John 3:16

    There is nothing we can do to save us, Rom. 3:28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.

    Rom. 4:3 For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.

    Did Abraham repent of his sins?

    Rom. 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

    2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

    And these examples are just in the beginning of Romans

    Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

    Hebrews 11 "the faith chapter" verse 6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. etc. etc. So.....

    After salvation we should strive to live as God want us to live , and to show his love, die each day to ourselves and allow the Spirit of God to lead us but once saved always saved you cannot loose your salvation.

    Dawn, may CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

    The people in the Old Testament couldn't have eternal life upon the death of their flesh; they had to lay in the grave and wait for Christ resurrection.

    The gospel was preached to them of that coming PROMISE (Christ in you, perfection, eternal life).

    Those that DIED IN FAITH was rewarded with that promise when Christ was resurrected.

    Hebrews 11:39 And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the PROMISE.

    Hebrews 11:40 God having provided some better thing for us (we would made perfect never seeing death), that they without should be made perfect.

    Matthew 27:52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,

    Matthew 27:53 And came out of the graves AFTER HIS RESURRECTION, and went into the Holy city (New Jerusalem), and were seen by many.

    I would like to help Christ's Children understand 'color and Light' are synonymous. KJV- John 8:12 GOD declares 'He' is Light. I had dinner with a physicist who told me 'to this day no one knows where Light comes from'. The deep space Light of the novas, of the cosmos ect. Now consider how Christians are told the Source/as Christ (are the same word friends) that we accept Him, He lives in us as our Neighbor, closer than a brother. We in Him, He in us= are Children of Light. The many contrived color narratives that want to steal the id of this Light? Yes as 'black'(lives matter),'white'(supremacy) and the 'rainbow' covenant of GOD (LGBTQIA) and this misguided phrase 'People of Color'. Do you see the narratives are theft? A tearing away of John 8:12 'I AM LIGHT'. Today there is an all out identity war on Christ to try and strip His/Light of His color! This is a real 'id' attack friends. Why? Because KJV Hebrews 11:1 says 'substance' (is faith)and as Light=all colors=substance) So by substance in the world the unbelieving sees proof of what we call the LORD's Glory in nature: is Jesus. To strip the LIGHT of its rainbow? Jesus colors parted out leaves invisibility and the confused will not connect LIGHT and COLOR as defined as indivisible. In physics (what is 'indivisible') cannot be separated from itself is 'true substance' science. Christ says He is Truth. Christ says He is Light. In His brilliance friends (our image is Him)-the logic is to admit Jesus Christ is 'COLOR TOO'. I AM THAT I AM. Sir Isaac Newton in 1700's wrote the Laws of Color Science:"Out of Black or Out of White"(from black or white)ALL colors come forth. Friends with this truth? This is the reason of 'law' of color = Color science. It is lawful that all Police Cars are 'black and white'. The reason the Bible pages are 'black and white' and the reason the USA Supreme Court Justice Robes 'law' are black and white. Fundamental science friends: Starting with our first set of CRAYONS/GOD= JOHN 8:12

    Hi brother Norman. God has never stopped revealing Himself to mankind - it's just the manner of His revelations.

    In the Old Testament days, God spoke & showed Himself in more visible ways: in choosing certain people to fulfil His Will & Program, in choosing a people (Israel) to be called His very Own, & to declare His Word to His people through the prophets He sent.

    And then in these "last days" (when God's Promises to His people (under the Old Covenant) would end (= fulfilled) by the introduction of the New Covenant, through His Son: Hebrews 11:1,2), God has chosen to reveal Himself & of Kingdom living in new way. No longer is the requirement of the physical Mercy Seat in the Tabernacle or the Altar for burnt sacrifices. No longer is the need for God's audible Voice to His prophets. All this has been fully met in the Person of His Son: He is the reason for God's continuing Mercy on us, a miserable, unregenerate, sinful people. Jesus is the Living Word to bring God's final Word of warning to us, indeed, to ultimately lay down His Life so that we might still have this Age of Grace to live in & live for Him.

    So, to all who would believe on Jesus for their salvation, repenting of their sins & confessing His Name, God's Testimony & Word has not diminished. He sent forth His Spirit into our hearts, crying "Abba, Father" ( Galatians 4:6). The same God Who hid His Face from His Son in the agony of the crucifixion, did so, so that His Face might now be fully revealed to us His sons & daughters by His Spirit. The Word that the prophets & saints of old heard audibly, we do also now by His Spirit. His manifestations seen in the powers of Heaven & on Earth in those days, are now seen in His Power in us & in the miracles He does for each of us, some seen, some unseen. Nothing has changed - God's revelation to His people (both to the saved Jew & Gentile) are still the same, & I would say, even of greater magnitude as His Spirit reveals more, does more, says more, to us now.

    I too believe that scripture plainly says Jesus is God in John 1:1. However, we are expressing our opinions and if that was banned then our opinions would be silenced also. Usually when someone wants censorship they usually just mean the opinions they disagree with, and don't want to be silenced themselves.

    God wants to be sought. This involves effort. I think some things are meant to not be clear or understood immediately, and some things never. In Job, he questioned God why He did that to him, and instead of a direct answer he got an earful of how He was God and Job wasn't. The way I interpret it is like: how dare you question me with your tiny limited brain.

    There are other places basically suggesting our capacity to comprehend everything is currently limited. There are mysteries and maybe more will be revealed in the afterlife.

    Hebrews 11:3

    Mark 4:11

    Matt 13:11

    Isaiah 40:4-5 - glory of the Lord will be revealed (in the future)

    Norman.

    You asked: "How can the Lord Jesus at the end of times judge billions of people to see where they will go?"

    Most of what we Know we Know by faith.

    and we don't question what we know by faith.

    Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

    Hebrews 11:1.

    Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

    Hebrews 11:3.

    We don't know how he did it, but we know he did it because we believe his word and God can't lie.

    Gods Glory is in what has done, What he is doing, and What he's going to do. If you can know and comprehend it, It wouldn't be Glorious. " You say you don't doubt it, Question is, Do you believe it?

    Faith (belief in God) and Obedience to God's WORD is the basic requirement for fellowship with Father,Son through Holy Spirit which inturn is brought by His grace and mercy.

    Faith and Obedience essential for His rest to us-salvation

    Hebrews 11:6 KJV - But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

    Romans 11:30 KJV - For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:

    Hebrews 3:12 KJV - Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.

    Hebrews 4:2 KJV - For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.

    Hebrews 4:3 KJV - For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.

    Hebrews 4:6 KJV - Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief:

    Romans 16:26 KJV - But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:

    2 Corinthians 10:5 KJV - Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

    1 Peter 1:2 KJV - Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.

    2 Peter 2:5, declares Noah to be a "preacher of righteousness". However, we're not told how he communicated God's Message to the people, whether during the building of the Ark ( Hebrews 11:7) or at other times. His soul would have been vexed by the wickedness around him, as Lot's was with the Sodomites ( 2 Peter 2:7,8).

    Genesis 5:32 shows Noah's age as 500 years old & then when he was 600 years old ( Genesis 7:6), the flood waters came upon the Earth. And somewhere between that time ( Genesis 6:3) God declared that man's days "shall be a hundred & twenty years". I guess that's how the understanding arose about God's time limit for man to take stock of his remaining days.

    The passages that reference this occasion ( Genesis 4:2-5 & Hebrews 11:4) don't explicitly state what caused God to reject Cain's offering. We could assume that it was because of the type of offering made by them or the state of heart from which it was given. Or even a combination of the two.

    So, whether Cain's offering was not a blood offering (which they may have known about) or Cain made his offering as one of compulsion or necessity, whereas Abel's offering was both of a blood sacrifice & with contrition of heart, we can't be certain. If the LORD "showed preference to Abel", it would have been justified based upon what those brothers knew was the right thing to do.

    Hi Reginald.

    Here's another possibility.

    Genesis 22:14. And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovah-jireh: as it is said to this day, IN THE MOUNT OF THE LORD IT SHALL BE SEEN.

    Jesus was crucified on the same mountain Abraham offered Issac. "His only begotten Son. And you also see faith in the resurrection as well.

    Hebrews 11:17-19. By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,

    Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called:

    Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.

    God bless.

    Brother Judge, may CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

    Revelation 6:12 And I beheld when he had open the SIXTH SEAL, and , lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon turned to blood;

    This was fulfilled at CHRIST death and resurrection. This prophecy is in:

    Joel 2:3 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, BEFORE the great and terrible DAY OF THE LORD COME.

    The one hundred forty four thousand in Revelation 7 are the Old Testament saints that were raised with Christ at his resurrection.

    Matthew 27:52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints WHICH SLEPT AROSE,

    Matthew 27:53 And came out of the graves after HIS RESURRECTION, and went into the HOLY CITY (New Jerusalem) and appeared to many.

    These Old Testament saints all died in FAITH; but, was never able to receive the promise of eternal life until Christ resurrection. This is shown in:

    Hebrews 11:39 And all these, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise (eternal life).

    Hebrews 11:40 God having provided some BETTER THING FOR US (eternal life), that THEY without US should not BE MADE PERFECT (accomplished by the death and resurrection of Christ).

    YES, thy along with John and all other saints now IN CHRIST are MINISTERING SPIRITS; to us, HERE and NOW.

    Hebrews 1:14 Are they not all ministering spirits, SENT FORTH to minister FOR THEM WHO SHALL BE HEIRS OF SALVATION.

    This is the role of ALL IN CHRIST at the time they are GLORIFIED.
