  • Joseph Whittle for verse 3
    Why isn't this verse being associated with Israel's rebirth Mathew 24:34, along with Jesus' comment regarding "as in the days of Noah" in Mathew 24:37. Additionally, Daniel 12:4 says "knowledge will increase" and Daniel 12:10 says "the wise shall understand." Modern Biological, medical, and Nutritional experts say human body can live 120 years when taken care ofproperly.
  • Jacqueline walker for verse 8
    DON'T GET GOD AND Jesus TWISTED UP TOGETHER. GOD ruled this earth for years, and in some Bible the Bible start with the Almighty God. and his work is done then Lord God go to the garden. Those are two separate gods. Plus when Moses saw God - God had Moses put his hand in his shirt and when Moses pulled it out his hand was white. And God also repented to Moses for the doing of the people. And to get deeper- remember the king that went to the top of hill before that; another king ask that king who these people that look like dirt? And that king said while on top of the mountain as far as you see that's how far they go. So stop rewriting the Bible. And leaving such verses out. And stop erasing the color off the statues of Africa..

    Read John 1:1

    were there giants on earth before Adam and Eve?
  • S
    No.Adam and Eve were the first humans. Adam called Eve the mother of all living.
  • Bob Hilt
    This is a very interesting chapter of the bible concerning Adam and Eve being the only ones in the Garden.

    Ezekiel 31:3 Behold, the Assyrian was a cedar in Lebanon with fair branches, and with a shadowing shroud, and of an high stature; and his top was among the thick boughs.

    4 The waters made him great, the deep set him up on high with her rivers running round about his plants, and sent out her little rivers unto all the trees of the field.

    5 Therefore his height was exalted above all the trees of the field, and his boughs were multiplied, and his branches became long because of the multitude of waters, when he shot forth.

    6 All the fowls of heaven made their nests in his boughs, and under his branches did all the beasts of the field bring forth their young, and under his shadow dwelt all great nations.

    7 Thus was he fair in his greatness, in the length of his branches: for his root was by great waters.

    8 The cedars in the garden of God could not hide him: the fir trees were not like his boughs, and the chesnut trees were not like his branches; nor any tree in the garden of God was like unto him in his beauty.

    9 I have made him fair by the multitude of his branches: so that all the trees of Eden, that were in the garden of God, envied him. (Family trees? Trees have emotions, like envy?)
  • S
    Thank you. I like that. I listened to Ezekiel this Sunday. I want listen to it again. Someone left a comment on Ezekiel in Genesis 1 that i also like.
  • Bob Hilt
    Gordon The bible does not indicate there were angels prior to Genesis 6. So my answer would be no.

    But there were giants after the flood think David and Goliath and the philistines.
  • S
    Wasn't the devil the one that used the serpent.

    Wasn't the devil an angel before he sinned?
  • Bob Hilt
    S yes Satan was an angel and then he sinned

    Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that OLD SERPENT old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
  • Mickey for verse 6
    Mickey on Isaiah 14:12-16

    One of satans other names is: DESTROYER. He is the ACCUSER of the brethren. He is a murderer, a liar. Revelation 12:10, Job chapter 1-2; Zechariah

    Actually in Isaiah chapter 14:12-16, satan says I WILL 5 times!

    One of satans other names is: DESTROYER.

    There is the Will Of God. God gave FREE WILL to Adam and Eve.

    But there is another will operating that is not a part of Gods purpose for earth or mankind. I think when satan was kicked out of Heaven, he retained his WILL.

    Don't blame God for the bad things that happen to you and others. We have Jesus now. I look at Job and he was a righteous man. Keep yourself & family soaked in prayer! Be alert
  • There is no discrepancy in God's Word. In regard to God's repenting because He created man in earth was not because of God sinning as man does. God cannot sin. Repentance is being sorrowful in your heart for human sin (disobeying God). God was sorrowful for His creation, not GOD sinning. Thank God, Jesus paid the price for OUR sin...He was without sin....God loved us (creation) enough to make way to be with Him through the Cross and Blood of His pure Son. Today repent for your sin, ask Jesus to save you, believe in your heart He died and rose again and confess Him as your Lord and Savior. Saved by grace..a gift from God...God with us..Thank You Lord Jesus!!!
  • Bob Hilt for verse 6
    RC that is the best explanation I have ever heard of repentance.
    well done. Mark 1:15 - .... Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,......And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
    Mark 6:12 - And they 12 apostles went out, and preached that men should repent.
    Jesus speaking in Luke 13:3 - I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
    Genesis 6 verse 5 ,It shows the eyes of God and descibes Human nature

    Chapter1:23 verse 26 I believe God made man like him self spirit body knowing good and evil.turn to chapter 3 verse 22 God announces behold the man has become one of us, to know good and evil now chapter 6 verse 2 that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and took them wives of all which they chose.
  • Linda Templet
    If one cannot understand the beginning of the story how can one understand the ending? we believe that every person is a child of God. Now this story is about men took them wives of all that they CHOSE. I see several angles. Gay men marry men instead of women. Slave trafficking little children. Sexual Wicked things are being done to little children by their fathers at home. THINK!Understand
  • Janice Hinty
    "Genesis 6:2 tells us who fathered the daughters...."The sons of God (angels) saw that the daughters of men were fair, and they took wives of all they desired and chose". Jude 1:6 tells us what God did to these angels, "And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day"."

    No, every person is the the "Sons of God", only those who repent of their sins and ask Christ to come into their lives and follows His commandments are "Sons and Daughters of God". The angels are also referred to as Sons of God.
  • S
    Luke 3:38 Adam is called a son of God but he sinned then sin separated Adam and his wife and offspring from God. By Jesus only can you become a son of God.
  • Comfused
    we believe that every person is a child of God. Don't include me in that we. I have known lots of people that are more like kids of the devil.
  • Nicole Martin
    Linda, you are so right. Any person who votes for a man who is married (not God's Law) to a man is sin. Many Americans, especially Democrats who vote for a certain individual (man) married to a man is in violation of God's Law. You can't go to certain communities who worship God and tell them to violate their belief to vote for a man married to a man because of your political beliefs. Which is the most important your life?
  • Chiyenda sabiano
    ithink that marrying non believer is not good since God does not feel good as the sons of God saw the daughters of Man and they took themselves wives, and God said 'Iwill destroy man whom icreated'
  • Linda Templet
    TOOK them wives does not mean married. You must Understand THEY TOOK THEM WIVES of ALL that they CHOSE. This is where learning begins. The same thing was happening in Noah's time. that is happening in our time--right now. What they were doing was WICKED read v. 5 again. The thoughts of the HEART not their minds were wicked continuously. Sex trafficking--human trafficking that's wicked thoughts.
  • Linda Templet
    People Who Is GOD? The Bible tells us that God is a Spirit. It tells us that God is Love and Good is God. I read these comments and I can see that people are not understanding what they are reading. If one looks at God as being a physical being you will never understand what you are reading. If God is a Spirit What is a Spirit? The thinking, feeling, motivating part of man.God is a Spiritual Being
  • Luke
    As it was in days of Noah....some people believe that these fake aliens/UFO's experimenting on human's sex organs are trying to create human/Nephilim hybrids. UFO's are fallen angels impersonating UFO's or aliens to weaken belief in God. Genetic manipulation happened in the past and its happening today.
  • Luke
    Part 2: Of course angels don't get married (in general) BUT these fallen angels were clearly breaking that law. Every ancient culture across the globe mentions this only in the context of their false gods. Zeus, Hercules, Odin, Thor, Shiva, Quetzalcoatl etc. were all fallen angels FAKING that they were gods. It's not until they were rounded up and put in the Abyss to be released later that they were stopped. That's where all the false faiths come from.
    As far as angels becoming human, why not? Jacob wrestled an angel. Lucifer can change his form, why couldn't these fallen angels? The Sodomites who tried to rape the angels who were Lot's guests thought that they were human men.
  • Luke
    You are mostly the one misunderstanding scripture and what people are saying. YES, the sons of god in Genesis are fallen angels sinning and breaking God's law and mating with human women and the offspring was evil giants, far larger and more powerful than Goliath who was about 10-12 ft. But skeletons have been found up to 36 ft! When Moses' spies saw giants in Canaan, they specifically compared themselves to grasshoppers next to them and these giants came after the Flood, meaning that they were even smaller than the 36 footers. If sons of god only meant 'line of Seth' or "daughters of men" meant cain's daughters, then how did the offspring become evil, deformed giants??
  • Comfused
    I don't know. If he is all powerful, why does He let these terrible things happen?
  • Vendall
    Because he gave us free will. Even though he gave us his perfect instructions, we make our own decisions and must accept the consequences be they good or bad. Free will! He did not want love that was not freely given...who does?
