Discussion for Genesis 8

    "And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar." That which separated the sons of God from the sons of men from the beginning was being of the truth, and the faith in the Anointed coming into the world to make reconciliation to God for him by breaking the serpent's head. In the new world it was to be first!
