    im not saying this to condone or encourage drinking alcohol but this chapter 9 is proof that wine has always been wine. and not grape juice as many insist it was indeed alcaholic wine that noah got drunk on

    Despite what everyone else says, Ham saw his dad, and laughed and pointed at Noah.

    The other 2 brothers shielded their eyes and covered their Dads nakedness, and did not make fun like Ham did.

    How many of us have enjoyed a shower after a hot, sticky, hard day of work (like building an Ark);

    Laid down on the bed naked and fell asleep instantly? ANYONE??

    Genesis 9:20-23 KJV

    [20] And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard: [21] And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent. [22] And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without. [23] And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness.

    Ham invaded his father's privacy just like when a child opens their parents door without knocking or introducing themselves . That is the wrong that Ham did. It's against Gods law for a child to uncover their parents nakedness even in the time of Noah, it was given to be written down by Moses, but during the time of Noah, this rule was already known.

    Genesis 9:24

    "And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him."

    What is it that Noah's younger son had done?

    Sons of Noah: Shem, Ham and Japheth

    The Genesis flood narrative tells how Noah and his three sons Shem, Ham, and Japheth, together with their wives, were saved from the Deluge to repopulate the Earth. ... In chapter 11 verses 10-26 a second list of descendants of Shem names Abraham and thus the Israelites.

    In the Book of Jubilees (160-150 BC) the names of the wives of Noah, Shem, Ham and Japheth are as follows:

    * Wife of Noah - Emzara.

    * Wife of Shem - Sedeqetelebab.

    * Wife of Ham - Na'eltama'uk.

    * Wife of Japheth - 'Adataneses.

    In the Biblical view, the listed children of Japheth, Shem and Ham correspond to various historic nations and peoples. In the typical interpretation, these sons of Noah correspond to three races: European, Semitic, and African. Alternate divisions claim Euro-Asian Japhet, Semitic Shem, and Afro-Asian Ham.

    The Genesis Rabba midrash lists Naamah, the daughter of Lamech and sister of Tubal-Cain, as the wife of Noah, as does the 11th-century Jewish commentator Rashi in his commentary on Genesis 4:22.

    In the medieval midrash Parry, J. H. (ed.). "5:15". Book of Jasher. Translated by Moses, Samuel., the name of Noah's wife is said to be Naamah, daughter of Enoch.

    Since the 17th century a number of suggestions have been made that relate the name Ham to a Hebrew word for "burnt", "black" or "hot", to the Egyptian word m for "servant" or the word m for "majesty" or the Egyptian word kmt for "Egypt".[4] A 2004 review of David Goldenberg's The Curse of Ham: Race and Slavery in Early Judaism, Christianity and Islam (2003) states that Goldenberg "argues persuasively that the biblical name Ham bears no relationship at all to the notion of blackness and as of now is of UNKNOWN (color) etymology.

    Hello Richard. I'm unsure whether you're thinking of the time when the plans & the building of the Tabernacle & all its furniture & accoutrements were put forward, or to some other instance. If you can let us know of a particular instance that you're thinking of.

    Otherwise, of the Tabernacle, we can read in Exodus chapters 25 to 40, all that was required for its construction. And particularly chapters 31 onwards are interspersed with the work done by the various folk. So, it will take a good bit of reading & identifying on your part.

    Hi GiGi.

    Thanks for your comments! I have read them all and enjoyed them.

    continue with us and God bless you.

    This chapter is referred to as the Table of Nations, as it shows the genealogy of Noah through his three sons, by whom all of the nations were "seeded". They were not yet scattered al over the earth if this chapter is chronologically before Chapter 11. But Chapter 11 will precipitate the dispersal of these peoples farther apart outside of the Mesopotamia area.

    This genealogy also shows the lineage of Shem - Peleg at which time the nations were scattered at Babel, or, another theory is this is the time that the one major continent broke apart and began to separate into two hemispheres. Both could have happened at this time. Whether the drift of the continents was slow or rapid, perhaps the answer lies with geologists. I happen to think that it was slow and that facilitated to habitation of all of all areas of the earth. I don't think it was fast and abrupt. The major geological and climatic events of a rapid division would have been noteworthy and I believe it would have been recorded in the Bible.

    In the Jewish year 3303 Josiah hid the ark (God hid his face), it would be needed no more. 2Kings 23:3. The new covenant put the law written in stone in the hart of flesh. This was done on Pentecost in the Jewish year 3793. This is the same year of the cross of Jesus. 7 weeks after Josiah restored the covenant of the fathers Ezekiel prophesied of the new Jerusalem. This gave hope to captive Israel and signaled that God had rested his fury, and they only had to endure until the end of the 70 years of captivity. Eze. 21:17 After 62 weeks in the Jewish year 3787 John the Baptist came announcing that the Messiah was walking among them. The total length of the prophesy was 490 years. 3303 - 3793 = 490 years. Jesus continued to confirm the covenant after the cross. The end of the confirmation would have been Cornelius as the Gentiles as promised. The law to the Jews first and then to the Gentiles.

    The restoring of the covenant in 3303 was the " restore" that Daniel knew about and was a part of. Everything done after 3303 was unto the Messiah.

    The 144,000 were of the tribes of Israel ( Rev 7:4). The number of people to be saved is innumerable ( Rev 7:9).
  • Pat Rutledge on Genesis 10
    In Revelations it talks about the 144000.Is that the total amounts of christians that will be excepted into heaven?

    The Old Testament saints were saved the same as New Testament saints, by faith. Although they did not know who or how they were to be saved as we do on this side of Calvary, they put their faith in God to save them. They had faith in the savior to come as we have faith in the savior that came, Jesus Christ. Just read Hebrews 11 to see many of the Old Testament saints that are mentioned as having faith.

    Before Christ rose from the grave, Old Testament saints were held in Abraham's bosom as mentioned in Luke 16:22 as their sins had not yet been paid for. After Christ's resurrection, the saints were taken to heaven with Christ. Their sins paid for the same as ours, by the sacrifice of Jesus.
  • Earl Bowman - in Reply on Genesis 10
    Jannelle, may CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

    Galatians 3:8 And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith (CHRIST IS OUR FAITH), preached before the GOSPEL unto Abraham, saying in thee shall all these nations be blessed.

    Hebrews 4:2 For unto us was the gospel preached, AS WELL AS UNTO THEM: but the word (CHRIST) preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them (CHRIST IN THEM) that heard it.

    The GOSPEL IS:

    2 Timothy 1:10 But is now made manifest (Christ in the flesh) by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath ABOLISHED DEATH, and hath brought LIFE and IMMORTALITY to light through the gospel.

    1 John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil (alive to the flesh), for the devil sinneth from the beginning, For this purpose (gospel) the Son of Man was MANIFESTED, that he might destroy THE WORKS OF THE DEVIL.

    This is the GOSPEL: You (seed of flesh) died on the cross with Christ and you (seed of Spirit) was RAISED with HIM.

    The saints of old received this promise also at HIS RESURRECTION

    Hebrews 11:39 And these all, having received a good report through faith, received not the promise (victory over sin and death) (CHRIST IN US):

    Hebrews 11:49 God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect (accomplished at Christ death and 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 at HIS RESURRECTION, and went into the holy city (new Jerusalem), and appeared to many.

    I think the reason for this is found in the last verse 32: "These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood."

    From Noah & his sons, all the Earth was repopulated after the Flood, which wiped out everyone. Even though most of those names might not mean much to us, it was important to Israel in understanding their roots & to historians who would be able to follow the generations which came from those names.
  • Raphael on Genesis 10
    In Genesis chapter 10, what is the importance of the bible listing all these sons and daughters? So many sons and daughters were listed and I am wondering why?
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Genesis 10
    No. no, no no.
  • Stephen - in Reply on Genesis 10
    ED, you notice how Stanjett put edible. the exact verse is genesis 1:29. It says THE GIVING OF FOOD..... i know pot is made in edibles now, My advice is not to fall for this trap. I am 40 and the holy spirit recently convinced me of this sin. i had been smoking since i was 14. Here is my reference: Isaiah 5: 12, And the harp and the viol the tabret and PIPE and wine are in their feasts but they regard not the work of the LORD neither consider the operation of his hands. WE are to be of SOBER MIND. i used to think i was even while smoking pot... im afraid its just not the case though.

    sounds good Chris. be safe brother.

    also, I have a hard time finding your correspondence from the previous comment. I'm not very good with blogs I guess. I thought when you hit "reply" it would bring you to the last comment.
  • Chris - in Reply on Genesis 10
    Thank you once again for your comments Robert - they are appreciated. I'm away for a month in rural areas with intermittent internet, so am unable to respond adequately. I hope to resume once again on my return. However, your comments are very informative & enlightening & require further consideration.
