    Does anybody know what the good fruit is? I can give ya a hint,What was MARYS GOOD FRUIT ? The good fruit is a baby Christ,the child is spirit, thats y he is saying that which is born of the spirit is SPIRIT WHICH IS THE H.G.Thats y he refers to himself as the SON OF MAN,His word is his seed, Our hearts is the womb where that good seed will be sown, THEY DON'T CALL HIM THE BRIDEGROOM FOR NOTHING.

    Vicki; No, haven't read or heard about that book you mentioned. As to you question about the angels possibly inhabiting the earth before men; I'm not completely convinced that that is in the Scriptures. Howbeit there is a long time teaching out there in a few circles, that there are some coded messages in a handful of verses; which "they" suppose suggests that very thing, and a cataclysmic event.

    Vicki.. I just made a comment.. and now I don't see it. Young earth creation is what we see in Genesis. The age of the earth is about 6000 to 7000 years old according to the biblical timeline.
  • Rebecca
    Vicki.. I totally believe that the earth is young and definitely believe it's only about 6000 or 7000 years old, according to the biblical record and timeline. He also gave us plants for meat (food) so I fully believe that every single edible plant/herb is put here to use for nutrition and healing purposes as necessary. Everything else is hogwash. (And yes, I do also eat meat.)
