8/21/2020, 11:29am by "Donna Williams": Joseph, as it pertains to whether or not the land of Nod was inhabited/uninhabited, in my opinion we cannot draw a conclusion one way or another. However, I believe that we can only go by what has been revealed to us in the written word of God. As Christians, we must believe and receive the word of God by faith. Hebrews 11:3 says, " 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." We will never be able to fully comprehend the word of God by our own human reasoning or intellect. 1Corinthains 2:14, "But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him, neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned." (Understood) We must allow the Holy Spirit to teach us and give us wisdom, knowledge, and understanding of Scripture to avoid erroneous beliefs which ultimately leads to erroneous doctrine. In regards to the creation of Adam, again we must adhere to what is written. It is evident in Genesis 2:7, that Adam became a "living soul", he was human. We were created in the image and likeness of God, in that we are triune beings: spirit, soul and body, as God who is a Spirit, is the Father, the Word, (that was made flesh, John 1:14), and the Holy Spirit. (1John 5:7) Adam was the first man who was created from the dust of the ground or the earth by God. But Christ who is called the second Adam, is the one who is, and the giver of life. He is the firstborn of the New Creation of God. Finally, I would like to express the danger of leaning to our own understanding. It is my sincere prayer and desire that you have a personal encounter with the Holy Spirit of God who will lead you and guide you into all truth!

8/20/2020, 11:17pm by "Joseph Burger": Thanks Donna for your honest reply about Genesis 2v20. But unfortunately i'm still in the dark about the answer (Gen.2v20): The land Nod was mensioned during proses of Creation. Can Nod be identified as (land) without inhabitants (citizens). Secondly, the operation done on Adam could have been SPIRITUALLY, meaning preaching the Gospel to mankind, the intention to bring forth Spiritual BIRTH.Reason being that Genesis introduced to us God as a SPIRIT. My views are supported by [Malecki 3]. That chapter identifies (God) as a Spirit therefore the SPIRITUAL BEING was supposed to be in the IMAGE of the CREATOR (GOD). In the beginning His Spirit was dwelling upon the waters/the deep. Does that indicates that identifying Adam one should imagine a Spiritual Rehabilitated Being that was formed out of humankind. [Gen.1v27-28]. NB. Adam as described in Genesis was called by Jesus Christ as the 1st Adam without (the life giving Spirit). Lastly, to imagine a Spirit (God) physically performing an operation on a body, unless God was in the likeness of human. Spiritual "operation", to rehabilitate the soul of humankind, that sounds more acceptable. The above are my honest personal views, unless otherwise convinced.
