Question: Hello Brandon, I was reading your texts about Cain with great interest. (Sorry for the mistakes…I’m German.) My question is: How did the Kenites survive the flood? I mean Cain and Abel were the children of Adam and Eve. After the murdering Cain went off and built up a family with one of his sisters. But several generations later the flood of Noah came and wiped out all human beings on earth except Noah and his family, logically Cain and his descendants must have been wiped out too. How does this work together? Thanks in advance

Answer: Victoria thank you for the question and you are doing fine.
Before I answer your question let me clear up a few things. Cain was not the son of Adam. Cain was the son of Satan. If you are not aware of this then I would encourage you to read our study titled, “The Garden of Eden: The Origins of Satan’s Seed“. In this study we thoroughly document this right from the Word of God.
I do not believe Cain married one of his sisters. Genesis 4:16-17 states Cain went to the Land of Nod and knew his wife and she bare him a son named Enoch. It would seem there were already people living in the Land of Nod for it to have a name. I believe Cain’s wife was already in this land. It is very scriptural that Adam and Eve are not the first people on the earth. There was a sixth day creation where God created all of the races. We noted this in our study titled, “As in the Days of Noah and the End Times Flood of Lies“. The following is a quote from that study,
1 “And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,”
The word “men” used in verse one and two has the “article” in the ancient Hebrew language meaning specifically “the man Adam,” (Appendix 14 I) not “mankind“. We are talking about Adam’s offspring multiplying on the face of the earth.
We should note, Adam was not formed until Genesis 2:7 where the word “man” has the “article” and “particle” meaning “this very, this same” man Adam on what we will call the eighth day. While “mankind” itself which includes all of the races were created on the sixth day where “man” is used without the “article” and “particle” (Genesis 1:26).
I do not believe in a world wide flood during the time of Noah. We covered this in our study titled, “The World That Then Was, The First Earth Age“. Make sure to note from Genesis 6, Noah sent out a dove which returned to him with an olive branch. It would not be possible for an olive tree to grow in just 150 days if the floods had covered the earth.
Understanding this then you can see how the children of Satan would have survived the flood. There is another angle to this as well. God told Noah to take aboard the ark seven of every clean flesh (male and his female) and two of every unclean flesh (male and his female). Flesh men would naturally fall into this category and the kenites are flesh. God has used them since their creation to fulfill the negative part of His plan.
Question: Hybrid animals and plants etc. As we are studying God and all his glory when it comes to animals, a discussion with another brother in Christ came up. He believes that hybrid species are okay and that on Noah’s Ark there was one kind of Horse etc. And through that one kind we now have donkey’s, zebra’s etc. Which now we have the hybrid Zonkey.
This does not feel right to me nor do I believe that hybrid animals are okay with God. I just can’t find scripture to show my feelings are just…other than the thought of the nephelliem.
Are you able to help with this subject.

Answer: Stephanie thank you for the question.
I do not agree with your friend. One big reason is what we outlined in question 1, I do not believe the flood of Noah was global, but local instead. God did not need to flood the entire earth to get rid of the Giants. He only needed to flood the region. Aside from that each species of horse would have counted as one set of flesh, unclean in the horses case.
Are hybrids okay with God? Please turn your Bible with me to,
25 “And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.”
This is how God created it and this is how he wanted it to be. Animals themselves have no inclination to cross breed like that. You could pin a donkey and a horse together and not much action would happen there. God just did not wire them that way so it takes man to pull off such a feat and God is not impressed by it. God said they should be “after his kind“.
Question: So this is a theoretical question about what you truthfully believe in your heart and what you say with your mouth in certain situations. I foresee a day (its quite obvious with how things are progressing that this is a fairly certain future) where authorities, whoever they may be, will be rounding people up and asking them “Are you a Christian? What are your religious beliefs, etc, etc” So If I say to them “I’m an atheist or a muslim or agnostic” but believe in my heart of hearts “I’m a god fearing red hot Christian!!” How does God judge you for that ? Is it ok to dodge the bullet so to say to keep on living or do you doom yourself because maybe this is viewed as a cowardly , dishonest action? I think this is a situation most of us will find ourselves in soon enough.

Answer: Billy this is a very good question thank you for bringing it up.
For the record, I doubt in this country we are going to see those days. If this world drags on too long though it defiantly is a possibility. It is worth noting these scenarios are playing out all over the globe and have been for some time. Please turn your Bible with me to, Revelation 2 and listen to the Words of Christ.
10 “Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.”
Christ wants us to be faithful to Him. Faithful meaning do not turn away from Him. If we say we are another religion we are essentially denying Him. With that in mind I want you to recall Mark 14 where the so called high priests “began to spit on Him (Christ), and to cover his face, and to buffet him, and to say unto him, Prophesy: and the servants did strike him with the palms of their hands,” (Mark 14:65).
66 “And as Peter was beneath in the palace, there cometh one of the maids of the high priest:”
67 “And when she saw Peter warming himself, she looked upon him, and said, And thou also wast with Jesus of Nazareth.”
Here is your question Billy. What does Peter do…
68 “But he denied, saying, I know not, neither understand I what thou sayest. And he went out into the porch; and the cock crew.”
Remember what Christ told Peter in verse 30, “Verily I say unto thee, That this day, even in this night, before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice.”
69 “And a maid saw him again, and began to say to them that stood by, This is one of them.”
70 “And he denied it again. And a little after, they that stood by said again to Peter, Surely thou art one of them: for thou art a Galilaean, and thy speech agreeth thereto.”
The heat was really being turned up on ol’ Peter. He is alone among a bunch of the high priests maids and no doubt sympathizers.
71 “But he began to curse and to swear, saying, I know not this man of whom ye speak.”
At this point Peter is adamantly denying Jesus Christ. So much so that he uses vulgar language to do so.
72 “And the second time the cock crew. And Peter called to mind the word that Jesus said unto him, Before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. And when he thought thereon, he wept.”
Imagine how this made Peter feel. To deny the Lord Jesus Christ was an earth shattering moment for him.
This is only my opinion, but I personally believe God put it in Peter’s heart to deny Christ so it could be an example to us in these end times (1 Corinthians 10:11). To be an example of the hour of temptation that awaits us in the future (The Tribulation of Satan).
I do not believe Peter was a coward. After all, when the high priests came to take away Christ he sliced off the ear of one of the high priests servants with his sword which means he was an excellent swordsman (John 18:10). Why would Peter only hours later deny Christ when there was less pressure on him? I will leave that for you to ponder.
Remember in verses 40-41 Christ came back from praying to our Father and “findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour? Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak,” (Mark 13:40-41).
We do not want to be like those who fell asleep at that last hour. We want to be wide awake making a stand for Christ during the Tribulation which is the Hour of Temptation. We want our Lamps to be fully illuminated.
In closing I would like for you to recall the account of the three in the fiery furnace. I want you to recall the courage they displayed before King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon and all of his men. Can you imagine standing before the King of the most powerful nation on earth? What did the three say, “be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.” They told him to go take a hike. They stood by our Father and He delivered them even though they were cast into the fire.
We must all remember to stand by our Father no matter what the outcome or cost maybe. “Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life,“ (Revelation 2:10).
We would like to thank our Father for giving us this platform in order to spread His most precious Word. We would also like to thank our readers for submitting their questions and giving us the opportunity to share them with the audience.
