    Verse 4 and 5 spoke to me long ago and made me be prudent .

    They say , but do not follow Christ and have no fruit , that's how we will notice the difference. Lip service sounds good , but is only deception . Jesus will reward us for our works , not our beliefs. Be a doer not a hearer only ! But get His spirits leading or it will not work or last .

    Just reread Matthew 1,2; and when all the generations had passed Joseph met Mary and they traveled to Bethlehem and Jesus our Messiah was born. Thank you Father for your son; Yeshua Hamashiach-Jesus our Lord.
  • May on Matthew 24:38
    Just reread Genesis 1 and 2. For all we see is a gift from God; the sea, sky, birds, grass in the fields.

    Forgive me Lord for taking everything for granted sometimes. You are good and gracious and loving.
  • D.J. on Matthew 24:38
    If Cain and Abel are the first two sons born to Adam, then why does Adam's genealogy begin with Seth? Last I checked, a person is not blotted out of his or her genealogy for being a murderer or for being murdered.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 24:38
    Actually in Genesis 4 is the account of Cain killing Abel. Cain was cursed and marked for death.

    When Seth was born, the genealogy restarted again. His was the seed that Jesus would be born through.

    All genealogy follows the bloodline of Jesus.

    Mary and Joseph were remote cousins from the bloodline of King David.

    Daughters were only included in the genealogy of the bloodline of Jesus if they were in that line.

    What does all this mean to us? God keeps record of all humans and children conceived to them. We're on His radar so-to-speak.

    Definition of Another by Merriam-Webster --- Another definition is - different or distinct from the one first considered.

    John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you ANOTHER Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

    John 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
  • April on Matthew 24:38
    Genesis 3;6 I just noticed that the scripture says Eve gave to Her husband who was with her.

    Because the serpent was talking to Eve , what does the scripture mean when it says , Adam was with her when she gave him the fruit?

    Thank you
  • Mary Jane Humes - in Reply on Matthew 24:38
    April, Adam, I believe, was not with Eve when the serpent was talking with her. The serpent was talking to Even when she was alone. Adam was somewhere else in the Garden. But Eve took the fruit and then then gave the fruit to her husband who possibly just walked up to her after she took the fruit. The Bible indicates that Adam knew what he was doing, in 1 Timothy 2:14 "And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression." Adam knew that Eve had sinned and because he loved her he decided to join her in whatever punishment she incurred.

    I know Iv read that their is a calling away of the church before tribulations starts but having trouble finding it or did I just imagine it
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Matthew 24:38
    James I can not find the pre trib rapture either though many others say they do.

    When did Jesus say the dead in Christ would be resurrected?

    John 6:39-40: Jesus said, "This is the will of Him who sent Me, that of all that He has given Me I lose nothing, but raise it up ON THE LAST DAY.

    John 6:44: Jesus said, "No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up ON THE LAST DAY."

    Is the LAST DAY the thousand year reign of Christ?

    I believe so....then it is eternity and time is counted no more

    So if Jesus himself said the dead in Christ will be raised on the LAST DAY, and Paul said we who are alive and remain will not be caught up (raptured) until AFTER the dead are raised, then where does secret pre-trib rapture fit in?

    Paul in 1 Corinthians 15:52 - In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

    We are changed at the LAST TRUMP and where is this found?

    In REVELATION, the LAST BOOK of the Bible there are 7 trumps and the 7th trump is the LAST ONE and is at the end of the tribulation. there is not a 7th last trump prior to the tribulation.
