  • Ferdinand A. Oreas
    Beasts and creeping beings included. To think of it, what God was really saying here is that He intends to wipe out LIFE in the surface of the earth. ALL LIVING THINGS THAT IS except for plants maybe. Things brings us to realization there is also an end of limit on how far we can push GOD's temper. Its like realizing BEWARE... GOD temper s not anything we can be kidding about. LIFE beware!
  • Ferdinand A. Oreas
    Nowhere in the entire Book will we see God's temper other than this reference. Known as the GOD OF LOVE, we are introduced here with the idea of God after all capable of HATE. God that He is, we should realize our feeling of HATE is nothing compared to ours. Let us note here what God intends here. He don't just intent to wipe out men in the face of the earth. That extends to all creatures

    God said that the span of man's life is a hundreth and towent years is it true.

    Psalms 90:10 The days of our years are threescore years and ten and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow for it is soon cut off, and we fly away. The verse in Psalms says 70 years, 80 if you're strong, and I think that fits today. I think at that point in time, that David wrote the Psalm, man's lifespan was limited to these averages.
  • Faustino Wilson
    Yes, it is true,
  • Vincent
    how many years passed from the creation of Adam to the Lords Commandment of Noah to build the Ark?
  • Brian
    Approximately 1650 years
  • Stanjett
    Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive. Noah didn't have to round them up. They came to him.
  • Adam
    Anyone have a challenge wondering how all the animals fit on the ark? Assume 1 million animal species- pairs of them some 7 of them- how would they fit. We also assume all sea animals didn't go on board, like whales, but it doesn't specifically they weren't invited on either- 'every living thing'? Things like coral reefs, muscles, barnacles, sponges are living things so did they go on the ark?
  • Heather Smith
    Only land and air animals boarded the ark. Water creatures will survive the flood. You are right, it does seem like a lot compared to the size of the Ark. I never thought about it
  • Melki
    Yahuwah is greater than our minds and imaginations.
  • Adam
    Who do you think the giants were? Are we just talking about a 6' tall large man like a Russian or someone or do you think this means a 10' giant- taller than goliath? Or an angel?
  • Melki
    They were the children of the fallen angels who laid with women.

    The sons of God are not fallen angels, Romans 8:14-For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God..In Genesis 6:1-2 says that V1 daughters were born of men and V2 The sons of God those who were led by God took them wives of all. Genesis 6:4 when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men..meaning Godly men took themselves wives who were heathen.
  • Aleksa foster
    2That the sons of God saw the DAUGHTERS OF MEN that they were fair, and they took them wives of all which they chose. It clearly says that the sons of God were not sons of men as the women were.
    thanks got it
  • Seventh day is sabbath
    Aleska foster: Isaiah 28:13 The bible is interpreted precept upon precept,line upon line here a little there a little. In Romans 8:14 it tells us who the Sons of God are, they are those who are led by the Spirit of God, they are Godly men..In Genesis 6:1-2 Godly men married worldly heathen women. In 2 Corinthians 6:14 we are told to not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers.
  • Aleksa foster
    If they were just normal people, then why were there children giants?? V4
  • Seventh day is sabbath
    Genesis 6:4 says There were giants in the earth in those days and also after that. Look at some people today in 2019 they are big, tall and strong,standing next to most people they could be called "giants".Here is the definition of giant: an abnormally tall or large person, animal, or plant. a very large company or organization. a person of exceptional talent or qualities. Blessings!

    he could have just let it all go but he chose to reseed the earth, God is great, the word shows us what he expects from us, and yet some still corrupt his word to make their sin justified , seek the Lord let him into your heart and let him guide your path, we are Blessed because of Christ taking our sins, cleansing us from Crimson, to snow white the word is truth God Bless,and Glory be to God
  • Vanessa
    once Adam and Eve ate from the tree of good and evil they were cast out of Eden there were 2 Cherubims and a flaming wall, Angels do not bare children, God created others as well after Adam and Eve that is obvious but they became so corrupted and Noah stayed true to God , he spared him, his wife, children and their wives . plus a male and female of every thing that lived to replenish the earth
  • JP
    Laurie, we must remember that from Adam to Noah people lived to be 400 to 900 years old and that is a lot of time to have a lot of children living in a near perfect envirement.

    Laurie L. Lee, In Genesis 4:14 "Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me." That includes Adam, Eve, and daughters that they had (Genesis 5:4)
  • Laurie L. Lee
    In Genesis 1: 26-28 I'm taking these verses as God made these people knowing what was going to happen in the Garden of Eden. These people that God made never knew about the Garden of Eden either. Cain said that he would be killed by everyone. So if it's just Adam, Eve and Cain how could everyone kill him? The Garden of Eden was just for Adam and his family.

    Verse 6~Man had become so bad on the earth that they pained Jehovah God and He regretted creating man.
  • I Am that Michael Isaac Dale
    Your answers are no, not GOD'S. Thus, you continue speaking against yourself by contradicting the Scriptures; revealing your own wickedness. For it is written, Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differs nothing from a servant, though he be Lord of all; And my temptation which was in my flesh ye despised not, nor rejected; but received me as an Angel of God, even as Christ Jesus.
  • Paul Smith
    If the sons of God are fallen angels then what do you do with Heb 1:5? Unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? The answer is at no time. Are angels heirs of God and joint heirs of Jesus Christ? Do they inherit Heaven? No. The sons of God are men. But where did they come from or at least, when did they come?
  • Joshua Epraim
    You have to keep to reading, it's speaking about Christ being the ONLY BEGOTTEN. Christ created everything after HE was created by the Father. ONLY BEGOTTEN means that Christ was the ONLY creation of the FATHER! Christ created everything else. Colossians 1:13-17. Through HIM Christ ALL things CONSIST be composed or made up of .
  • Paul Smith
    Begot- procreated generated John 1, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Just as the Father, the Word has always been there. Eph 3:9 God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: God, by the Holy Spirit, begat the Son. John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us. Don't confuse the birth of God in flesh as just coming onto the scene.
  • Erik
    The sons of God were the fallen angels.
