Bible Question and Answer
Welcome to our bi-weekly post Bible Question, Answer and Discussion where we provide Bible verses, answers and advice to the questions and concerns you have. During the course of the last two weeks readers have submitted their questions and today we are going to answer one of them. So please join us and feel free to chime in on the discussion in the comments section below this post.

Before we get into this week’s questions we would like to point out that you are helping to spread the Word of God by your continued submission of questions. Because of your ongoing participation these Q&A posts have been read thousands of times. Without your participation this section of our site would not exist. So if you have a Biblical or non-Biblical question you would like to ask, submit it now for our next edition of “Bible: Question, Answer and Discussion“.

Question 1:

Name: Kaye
Question: I don’t know how to reconcile passages in scripture like Psalm 91:3 with what I see happening to our brothers and sisters (even children) in Christ today, where they are being tortured and beheaded. Can you help me understand?

Answer:

Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: This is a very good question Kaye, one I can see a lot of people having difficulty grasping.

It is important to understand what we see today on TV is nothing new. Christians have been suffering and dying for our Father since the dawn of this age of flesh though I do believe there has been an escalation. Please turn your Bible with me to,

Revelation 6:9
9 “And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:”

What were they slain for? The Word of our Father and it will continue until the return of Christ.

The age of flesh we currently find ourselves in was brought about due to the fall of Satan in The First Earth Age. This age of flesh is necessary for our Father to see who will stand with Him and who will stand with Satan. With that, we should understand this age also provides us with free will where we are born innocent with no recollection from The World That Was. It is because of this that terrible things happen in this world. Our Father allows Satan and his children to fulfill the negative aspects of our Father’s Letter and unfortunately this means good people suffer.

While there are plenty of verses like Psalms 91:3 that tell us God will protect us, there are also a lot of verses documenting we will suffer for Christ sake as well. Listen to the Word’s of Christ,

John 15:18-19
18If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.”

19 “If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.”

Jesus Christ was perfect and they hated Him, beat Him and then killed Him. Can we really expect not to suffer a little as well? There is something else we need to understand. Our Father has an Election who has what I will call limited free will. They have free will for the most part, however our Father can intervene into their life to lead, guide and direct them to accomplish His will if He deems. I believe a lot of the verses in the Bible about God’s protection are primarily, but not only directed at His Election.

To be quite blunt, there are a lot of people who say they are Christians, but they really do not follow what the Bible says or they listen to traditions of men which essentially attempts to void God’s Word. Having said that, who do you think our Father is more likely to protect?

God’s Word is very real, it is not make-believe or about fluff that makes us feel good. We need to take the good and understand there is bad as well.

No matter what we endure in this life whether it is good or bad we need to really grasp the idea this age is a blink of an eye compared to our Father’s Eternal time clock. While some Christians will unfortunately suffer what does His Word say about that? Please turn your Bible with me one more time and read the Word’s of Christ.

Matthew 5:10-12
10Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

11 “Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

12Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.”

Question 2:

Name: Anthony
Question: Does the Bible speak on race relationships?

Answer:

Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Thank you for the question Anthony.

I do not believe we can document this subject in God’s Word which leads me to believe if God was against it He would have declared it. God did tell Solomon and the Israelites not to take wives that were foreign to them. Why? Please turn your Bible with me to,

1 Kings 11:2
2 “Of the nations concerning which the LORD said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon clave unto these in love.”

God’s reasoning was not because they were of another race, instead our Father knew the Israelites would end up accepting the gods of these foreign woman and of course He was right and they did.

 

 

Question 3:

Name: Amandio
Question: Hi. We are told that the beast system will get a deadly wound. In your opinion do you think that with what is going on right now Russia, China not going along with “western” powers as far as policies go is the beginning stages or the characters involved with the breaking of the new world order (beast system) the Kenites want? Thank you.

Answer:

Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Amandio thank you for the question.

We do not have the one world government that will receive a deadly wound just yet. We need Syria to fall and Iran to be attacked as well. Additionally, we do not have ten clay kings which are the ten kings of the earth in power just yet (Revelation 17).

Russia and China are not bucking any trends. They do seem to stand against the West at times and I am sure many will recall China saying if the U.S. attacks Syria it would result in world war 3. Well the U.S. has attacked Syria not only through their proxy ISIS, but the U.S. itself has been dropping bombs on Syria as well. Russia who claims to be the good guy in all of this is doing the same thing the United States is… Dropping bombs on Syria.

The West, Russia and China all have banks controlled by the international banking system which is a part of the global structure. With that said, they are already controlled opposition. The children of Satan only have a few nations left to conquer and those are the nations we see being attacked.

Remember, by their fruits, not their words you will know them. This goes for all aspects of life. While we hear rumors of world war 3 between the U.S., Russia and China we instead see them all working together to remove leaders of nations who will not go along with the globalist agenda.

Amandio we brought more information along these lines forward in the following studies. We discussed how world leaders are calling for a global government including those nations who claim to be against the West. The three links below will really help you and one is a video. Take your time with them and I think they will offer some more perspective for you.

  1. God chose Noah because he had a perfect blood line, or pedigree…Gen 6:9

    And the fact that Adam had no ‘help meet’ (Genesis 2:18) further spells it out. Since the races had been created prior. Had ‘kind after kind’ not been purposed, Adam could have found a ‘help meet’ among the races.

    • God chose Noah because his “pedigree” was perfect that is correct. Noah and his children did not intermix with the fallen angels or the offspring of Cain. That is the point as we discussed in, “As in the Days of Noah and the End Times Flood of Lies“. As we study the Word we need to ensure we are taking everything in context. While no doubt Noah and his family were pure Adamic since The Age of Flesh was new the point was they did not allow Satan or his angels to enter their bloodline.

      I am seeing people say “kind after kind” where God did not say it. You are trying to place your own belief on the scriptures which is very dangerous. God did not say “kind after kind”. You did and once again we are all mankind. Different races of people are not different kinds. Read what Hooper wrote if you have difficulty grasping that.

      God did say Adam needed a “help meet”, God also said in that verse “It is not good that the man should be alone” implying there was no one else around. The other races were obviously somewhere else since they were created on the sixth day so we need to ensure we are rightly dividing the Word.

      If we are going to quote Genesis 2:18 let us not forget,

      Genesis 2:5
      5 “And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.”

      Does this mean that no one else existed at this time? Of course not, we know about the creation of man on the sixth day. God was simply saying there was no one to till the ground in Eden.

      • Cain found a mate among the races…must have been within traveling distance.

        • Tim, Cain was banished from Eden. In the verses we just discussed God was talking about Eden.

          Genesis 4:16
          16 “And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.”

          • That is not quite right, Cain was not banished from Eden, Adam and Eve were banished from Eden long before Cain slew Able and was banished for it. Cain was banished from where ever they were living when he killed Able, it is not written where they lived but it was not Eden, then Cain went to Nod which was east of Eden.

          • Thanks Hope you are correct.

        • Scriptures do not indicate how long Cain traveled to reach the land of Nod. It could have been decades or longer; man lived longer lives back then. Try to think reasonably. Eve was to be called the mother of all living because Christ would come through her womb umbilical cord to umbilical cord. That was God’s plan. Amen.

        • Very possible…and Cain may not have had to travel any great distance to find them either.

          Cain was already away from the Garden of Eden, when he committed the sin of murder…his mother, Eve had been thrown out of Eden along with Adam by that time. He must have had some contact, have seen or have knowledge of the 6th day creation during that period.
          Point being…the 6th day creation were already spread throughout the earth…they’ve had an approx 2000 yr. head start. Probably the reason *why*…Cain made the following statement to God>>>>

          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.”
          *WHO*…is the “every one that findeth me shall slay me.????

          *****It was only Adam, Eve and Cain at the time of that statement to God…so those who can possibly “findeth” him…can only be those of the 6th day Creation.

        • That was Cain…who is *not*…a descendant of Adam…for he was a seed of Satan. However, Brandon gave a perfect explanation, which I’ll again share below in quote marks….as to who and why…through which pedigree Christ would come. That’s how GOD willed it…Christ was to be pedigree, totally *WITHOUT* blemish or sin in His role as SAVIOR for us sinners, for one and all times…and so it was done! Simple! Here is where Christ’s genealogy started…>>>>from God, through Adam and Seth, as evident in Luke 3 which gives Mary’s, Christ’s mother genealogy….we should all know Who His Father is!
          Luke 3:38 “…….. SETH, which was the son of ADAM, which was the son of GOD.”
          Brandon shared:
          “Christ was of the Tribe of Levi and Judah and it was clear from the
          beginning He would come from the Israelites alone. The Israelites were
          the only ones who had the real Word of God in those days and God told
          them to share it with the world. That is the very purpose of Him
          choosing the Israelites to being with and why we have an Election. All other peoples would have been “heathen” at that time as they did not know the Father.”
          *****That’s our Father’s Will, Tim….His Divine Order as to Christ / Emmanuel…God with us, in the flesh! Matthew 1:23.
          I’m forever grateful for our Savior!

      • Fantastic scripture reference on Gen. 2:5! and thank you Brandon! I’m always looking for more of God’s evidence/proof in the scriptures that points to the fact that God first created man on the sixth day. Somehow I missed that one! And it will help me in the future, for so many people just cannot see the 6th day creation of man and only believe in that all races came from Adam and Eve. Again, thank you; for every little thing learned “helps” when teaching the Word of truth.

      • And, why wasn’t Christ of mixed race, if there were no prohibition against the mixing of races?

        • As I said in my other comment to you Tim in another post, provide the source in the scriptures. There is no prohibition in the scriptures, this is something you believe, but that does not make it scriptural.

          Christ was of the Tribe of Levi and Judah and it was clear from the beginning He would come from the Israelites alone. The Israelites were the only ones who had the real Word of God in those days and God told them to share it with the world. That is the very purpose of Him choosing the Israelites to being with and why we have an Election. All other peoples would have been “heathen” at that time as they did not know the Father. Let’s ensure we use some common sense here and understand the time frames we are dealing with. Do not make more out of this than there is.

          I have provided an abundance of Biblical evidence by now and you seem to look past that each time and bring something else forward. We all wish to learn here Tim so please provide some proof to your claims otherwise you are leading people astray and that will never be tolerated on this site.

      • Not only in “Eden”…was there “no one to till the ground”….but upon the whole earth as well…is how I’ve read those Scriptures. The field, plant, herb were created, but “God had not caused it to rain upon the earth”…until…Adam the farmer / tiller came along. Before the rain came, the mist /dew was used to water them. The 6th day creation mankind, were hunters and fishermen…no tillers / farmers! They must have just enjoyed the ready done mist-moist plants and herbs until the rain fell…I believe.
        There’s nothing that state any differently in God’s Word.
        Just my opinion. Could be wrong.

    • Adam had to keep his bloodline pure so Christ could be born of it, that was the purpose. After Christ, God did not say to change things or that it was okay to change things, so nothing has changed. Does that apply to all the races? I don’t know, the bible is not about all the other races, it is about the man Adam, his offspring and all the people who came into contact with them. God never said whether or not it was ok for the other races to mix, (other than not mixing with kenites, never do that). God at no time said they cannot, so if a non-Adamic person falls in love with another non-Adamic person they should probably go for it, true love is hard to find, get it if you can. As for the Adamic race, the purpose of keeping the bloodline pure was achieved. What does that mean? I don’t know.

      • I do agree that the purpose was to keep Christ’s ancestry purely Adamic to fulfill prophecy. Since that time, I don’t know either, other than to observe there hasn’t been all that much mixing of the races. It seems to be a natural thing that people keep to their own ‘kind’.

        I do know that the ethnos still exist in the 3rd age.

        Rev 21:24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.

        • “I do know that the ethnos still exist in the 3rd age.”

          By the “3rd age”…the “ethnos” will again look exactly the same as God created them in the First Earth Age… *ALL* souls would be in their spiritual bodies then.

          These…”ethnos”… are included in the following Scriptures:

          Revelation 7:9 “After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of *ALL* NATIONS, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;”

          Revelation 21:24 “And the NATIONS of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the KINGS OF THE EARTH do bring their glory and honour into it.”

          *****All peoples of every *ETHNIC* background which were saved in this Earth Age or the Millennium, shall be in that Great City of God. They
          will all know why they are there, and give our Lord the praise. All those who do not, simply will not exist… not even the memory of them…totally blotted out of existence forever and ever!
          But until then…as far as intermixing goes…there are Christians believers, who came to the Truth…after…inter-marriage with unbelievers of other races…we have Paul’s advice in 1 Corinthians 7:12 – 17 as a guide to steer them in the right direction, should they have any concerns about that situation in God’s eyes, I believe.

  2. Regarding Anthony’s question, my opinion, and its only my opinion, is that our Father very much prefers “kind after kind”. That’s not a very popular thing to say nowadays, but I’m not accustomed to being very popular. I think God made all the races the way he wanted them, and he intended them to stay that way. I certainly don’t think He intended for the races to hate each other…and I think were it not for the divide and conquer tactics of the Kenites, there’d be a LOT less race hatred now and in the past as well. I think Father is most happy with kind after kind. I’d direct anyone who’s curious to read Deuteronomy 23:2 and then look at what the word “bastard” means…it doesn’t mean a child born out of wedlock. And God doesn’t change. Men do. Just my 2 cents, not looking to stir the pot. If anyone disagrees, that’s certainly your right.

    • I tend to agree with you on the “kind after kind” jack. I’ve shared a bit on that, in my original comment below.
      There would *not* be *RACISM*…if only folks would understand…that there’s good, bad and evil ugly, in…*all*… races!
      It is written:

      Genesis 1:31“And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was VERY GOOD. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.”

      *****That was inclusive of *mankind*…it is us…who fall short of His Glory.

      We should believe God / Christ as He inspired the following Scripture on that>>>>>

      Romans 3:10 “As it is written, There is NONE righteous, NO, NOT ONE:”
      *****It takes the Blood of the Sacrificial Lamb, Christ Yeshua, unblemished / without sin…to *ATONE* for our sins upon belief in Him, and our earnest repentance.
      Thank God for His Tender Mercies!

      • Amen! Some of the finest people I know, some of the best Christians, are people not of my race. And some of my race is downright godless. And I know we all agree that the blood of Christ was shed for all.

    • Jack thank you for the comment and please read my reply to EyeonGod on this subject in addition to the following.

      If you are referring to Deuteronomy 23:2 to mean a child from parents of two different races is a “bastard” or “mamzar” you are really mistaken. I know you understand we are all born innocent from above in order to decide who we will follow God or Satan. So then you understand the parents of a child cannot damn him to some lower degree. Hopefully I am misunderstanding you, but I have heard something like this a few times before. Please turn your Bible with me to,

      Deuteronomy 23:2
      2 “A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the LORD.”

      Now let us look at this word “bastard” as you suggested in our Strong’s Concordance.

      H4464

      מַמְזֵר
      mamzêr
      mam-zare’
      From an unused root mian. to alienate; a mongrel, that is, born of a Jewish father and a heathen mother: – bastard.

      We have two conditions here. We know scholars often insert “jew” for those who are of the tribe of Judah and the Israelites in general and that is what we are talking about here. A “bastard” would be the child born from a man of Judah and a woman that is “heathen”. What is a “heathen”, someone of a different race? No, a “heathen” or “Gentile” is a worshiper of false gods. This would be exactly what our Father told Solomon and the Israelites as we documented in 1 Kings 11:2 and nothing more. Our Father did not want His sanctuary polluted and that is the point here.

      God does not damn or place individuals to a lower degree based on the color of their skin or their ethnicity. But our Father does judge by the soul and He places them into each individual. Our Father is no “no respect of persons” and I believe that with all my heart (Romans 2:11).

      • H4464

        מַמְזֵר
        mamzêr
        mam-zare’
        From an unused root mian. to alienate; a mongrel, that is, born of a Jewish father and a heathen mother: – bastard.
        Jew is a convoluted word, it changes to mean many different things. Their is nothing wrong with marrying a person from the true Judah bloodline, they are Adamic, why would that be a sin? It is not.
        In this case the word jew was inserted in place of another word. The world bastard should be translated KENITE. a kenite is not a regular person created on the sixth day or formed on the eighth day but a race that began in the garden of eden, separate from all the other races, the second half of the key of David, they have the blood of satan in them. God does not want any race mixing with the kenites, if they do their children are kenites, to the tenth generation and even longer if they set their minds to it. Ten generations, that’s at least 200 years to thin out the blood line enough the blood of satan can be overcome. The will of their father they will do. I believe God places a soul into the body of whoever He wants, and I’m sure he places the souls of the people who followed satan in the first age into the body of a kenite and he does most definitely discriminates against them, they start off with a mark right from birth, the mark of Cain. Not that they are condemned from birth, they have the same chance to follow God as everyone else, but most likely they will not. And they are not all evil in that they intend to harm others and are not capable of love, but they generally do not follow God and they deny Christ, once again, the will of their father they will do. That is what a mamzer is and why we are not to mix with them. That is permanent and goes to the end of this age after which there will be no more mixing or kenties.
        God spoke about a mamzer only, He did not include the other races, He said exactly what He meant, do not join Satan’s family, that goes for all the races. I hope everyone can see the kenites are separate from all the other races. We cannot kill them and we cannot marry them.
        All the other races are in fact kind after kind, mankind is not a donkey mixed with a horse or a chicken mixed with a rat, mankind is kind after kind. You have different colored horses and dogs and everything else and man is no different. Kind after kind. The problem with mixing with other races is as Brandon stated, they tend to lead the Adamic people away from God. If you marry another race and turn them to God I am sure God is pleased about that, but if you go the other way God warned you about that.
        Excluding the kenites, all of mankind is kind after kind. Do not intermix with anyone and get pulled away from God, that goes for marrying other races and your own race. Do you really want to marry an atheist and have your children raised as atheists? God does not want you to. The world is already a mixed place, it would not be that way if God did not intend it that way. Rule number 1. God wants his children to love Him, don’t do anything that puts you in satan’s camp. If you follow that rule, In my opinion of course, God does not care who you fall in love with (assuming it is not gay, that is another issue), with one exception, do not mix with a kenite.

        • Good job Hooper. You explained that well.

        • “In this case the word jew was inserted in place of another word. The world bastard should be translated KENITE.”????
          It may *include* them…but I do not believe that “jew” means…ONLY…a “KENITE” there.
          Many folks believe that *all* the tribes of Jacob are called Jews! A HUGE misconception!

          A “jew” in times past….before the meaning was *conveniently* tampered with…meant: a descendant of the Tribe of JUDAH or a resident of JUDAEA. And YES! KENITES were also *residents* of Judaea…a *CUNNING* way to hide among JUDAH and be called “Jews”…isn’t it? For more info on KENITES being in JUDAEA, reference Jeremiah 35 on the house of the Rechabites and Jonadab who were KENITES …who wittingly and connivingly attached themselves to JUDAH to this day. These Kenites were the *SCRIBES* for the tribe of JUDAH. 1 Chronicles 2:55. God has inserted Jeremiah 35…to identify who we are to be on guard against in these end times. We are not to bother them or even hate them, but to be on guard against what they teach and stand for. It is the *NEGATIVE* side of the KEY of DAVID.
          The following verse in Jeremiah, tells us…*WHY* the KENITES went to Jerusalem and became *residents* among JUDAH…they sought *PROTECTION* in JUDAEA, as you would see>>>
          Jeremiah 35:11 “But it came to pass, when Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon came up into the land, that we said, come, and let us go to JERUSALEM for FEAR of the ARMY of the Chaldeans, and for FEAR of the ARMY of the Syrians:’ so we DWELL at JERUSALEM.”
          Strong’s definition for Jew: H3064 -Yᵉhûwdîy, yeh-hoo-dee’; patronymically from H3063; a Jehudite (i.e. Judaite or Jew), or descendant of Jehudah (i.e. Judah):—Jew.
          Neither *ALL* the tribes of Jacob lived in Judaea…nor are *ALL* 12 tribes descendants of that *ONE* tribe JUDAH. Think about that!
          So…”jew” there…should really be translated: born of a JACOB’ITE father and a heathen (not a descendant of the tribes of Jacob, one who did not worship God YHVH, which may include a Kenite) mother.
          Truly appreciated your contribution though.

        • I’ll add two thumbs for ya Hooper, makes perfect sense, never heard it explained like that.
          I know GOD made those laws to make sure that the LAMB slain would have NO SPOT OR BLEMISH, he had to be the perfect sacrifice and he was, thank GOD. Well done11

        • ” I believe God places a soul into the body of whoever He wants, and I’m
          sure he places the souls of the people who followed satan in the first
          age into the body of a kenite and he does most definitely discriminates
          against them, they start off with a mark right from birth, the mark of
          Cain.” (Within context)

          “I’m sure he places the souls of the people who followed satan in the first age into the body of a kenite”??????
          *****But…God “hated” ESAU (Malachi 1:3; Romans 9:13-18)…because of what he had done in the First Earth Age…I’m sure whatever he did…was certainly *TERRIBLE* for God to “hate” him…but…ESAU was *not* a KENITE.
          The Scriptures that I’ve referenced above, can *disprove* what you’ve stated in that part of your comment.
          Only God…is *sure* of which souls went into whomever …being the point!
          Just sharing my thoughts on that.

          • Yeah, I agree with you Eye. We as Christians can only speculate on how God might go about His business in deciding which soul goes where. If it is not written and backed up with at least a second witness, then it is just conjecture on our part. It does seem “reasonable”; though, that God had most likely put the souls of Satan followers into the corrupted flesh of the fallen angel offspring; i.e. nephilim/geber. For we know it is written that these giant abominations were “mighty men which were of *old*,…” Gen. 6:4.
            OF OLD meaning they retained their memories of what happened in the first earth age; i.e. before the katabole; i.e. the overthrow of Satan.

          • Appreciate your comment DFG!
            Though it may “seem reasonable”…”that God had most likely put the souls of Satan followers into the corrupted flesh of the fallen angel offspring; i.e. nephilim/geber.”
            It’s possible! But I lean more towards the position, that a “third” of the stars (angels) that followed Satan…are actually living with us today!
            WHY…do I believe so? Just read or listen to the News…and look around us and the world today…apostasy, “waxed cold” hearts in high gear, wickedness of all sorts, including homosexuality / SSM…if it feels good…just do it EXPLOSION…in this generation of the Fig Tree!!! We know that there is nothing new under the sun, so we can’t deny that we have now come to a *repeat* of some of the most unGodly acts in Biblical history!
            In part, why I came to that position of the Satan following “third” living with us today…is because of the following Scriptures, which I’m sure you know only too well by now, DFG >>>>>
            Luke 13:30 “And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there
            are first which shall be last.”” Ref. also…Matthew 19:30; Matthew 20:16.

            *****Those elect were chosen / selected *FIRST*… they would, for the most part…live in
            the *LAST* generation of this Earth Age, to serve a purpose for the
            Lord…they stood against Satan and his angels and earned
            the privilege / the right to be chosen to labor *LAST* in the vineyard. That purpose in part, is to allow the Holy Spirit to speak through
            them, in this generation of the Fig Tree…bearing in mind also, that God will use some of them, to come in His Army.

            Well…by the same token…I believe that the *THIRD* of the stars (angels) which were the *FIRST* to follow Satan at his rebellion in the First Earth Age…Revelation 12:4…would *ALSO* live in this *LAST* generation, just in time for the CASTING / KICKING OUT of Satan and his *fallen angels* to earth. Here’s their chance and test…with their memories wiped clean of what they had done against our Heavenly Father in the First Earth Age ….. to *CHOOSE* between FAKE god Satan…or…the Real Deal…GOD YHVH!
            Let’s see how they do, after having an opportunity for *REDEMPTION* in our SAVIOR…for *all* flesh sinners, in Christ Yeshua…this time around…when *supernatural* Satan is here with *his* 7000 FAKE ministers of light army!
            Thanks for sharing DFG!
            God Bless.

          • I’ll throw this correction out there.

            “…”that God had most likely put the souls of Satan followers into the corrupted flesh of the fallen angel offspring; i.e. nephilim/geber.”….
            The offspring of the fallen angels what we call the nephillim/geber are all dead now. The only offspring of a fallen angel left are the offspring of satan himself. Satan is somewhat separated from the fallen angels since he never had the chance to be born in the flesh, so I don’t know if you would really call him a fallen angel, but he is fallen and he did have a child with a flesh woman same as the fallen angels.

          • I stand by my position in comment to “Driving for God”…as to the THIRD that followed Satan in the First Earth Age, hooper…but I do appreciate your contribution!
            Thanks so much for sharing!
            We share because we care! A great attribute in Christians.
            God Bless.

          • satan isn’t an fallen angel, he’s a cherub. Created in the ‘full pattern’, and created to protect the mercy seat. Ezekiel 28.

          • ok, let me clarify. I suppose most or many of the souls that followed satan in the 1st age are placed into kenties. kenties are not the only bad people in the world. Pharaoh was not a kenite either. The point I was trying to make is 1st, do not to mix with a kenite, 2nd, I still stand behind every kenite is someone who followed satan in the 1st age, I was not trying to account for all the souls that followed satan, I was only accounting for the kenites.

      • Just chiming in here a bit, Brandon and jack!
        You’ve stated, Brandon:
        “What is a “heathen”, someone of a different race? No, a “heathen” or “Gentile” is a worshiper of false gods.”
        *****Well…they are…*usually*…worshipers “of false gods”…BUT…are of “a different race” also…discerning from God’s / Christ’s Truths. It is to my understanding, that a “heathen”…most times when used, means “FOREIGN nation”….the 6th day creation, formed *their own NATIONS*.
        They are “FOREIGN” to…*WHICH*…Nation?
        To those of the 8th day Creation…from which the Tribes of JACOB aka ISRAEL, are descended….namely from…*SHEM*..,who was descended from Adam, through whom CHRIST would come. Those *FOREIGN NATIONS* were *HEATHENS or better put, *FOREIGN NATIONS* that were *not* yet given the Word of God…His Laws, Statutes or Ordinances.

        The following shows the meaning and some of the Scripture usage for the interchangeable “Nation” / “Heathen” in context when used>>>>

        Heathen:Strong’s H1471 – gowy go’-ee; rarely (shortened) גֹּי gôy; apparently from the same root as H1465
        (in the sense of massing); a FOREIGN nation; hence, a Gentile; also
        (figuratively) a troop of animals, or a flight of locusts:—Gentile,
        heathen, NATION, people.
        *****We would see below…that “nations”…is the same Strong’s word H1471 as “heathen” at times…in the following Scriptures>>>>
        Lev 25:44 Both thy bondmen, and thy bondmaids, which thou shalt have, shall be of the heathen H1471 that are round about you; of them shall ye buy bondmen and bondmaids

        Lev 26:33 And I will scatter you among the heathen, H1471 and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste.

        *****Other Scripture references and usage for H1471 throughout the following books: Gen 10:32; Exo 9:24; Lev 18:24; Numb 14:12; Deut 4:6

        As for the word “Gentile”….the Strong’s G1672 – Hellēn… hel’-lane; from G1671; a Hellen (Grecian) or inhabitant of Hellas; by extension a
        Greek-speaking person, especially a non-Jew:—Gentile, Greek.

        *****These Strong’s definitions, help us to *rightly* divide God’s Word, to the end that there is no doubt…that we may be of *one* mind, in God’s Truths, I believe.

        • First let me say Hooper did a really good job of explaining this below. This is something I do recall understanding many years ago and managed to lose sight of.

          Please make sure you read my original response to you in this comment section EyeonGod.

          I cannot make out exactly what your point is in your comment other than you mentioned it is your understanding “Gentile” means foreign nation. It can mean that most definitely, but it also means several other things. Let’s look at the word “heathen” which is Strong’s word 1471 where you got Gentile from.

          H1471
          גֹּי
          גּוֹי
          gôy gôy
          go’ee, go’-ee

          Apparently from the same root as H1465 (in the sense of massing); a
          foreign nation; hence a Gentile; also (figuratively) a troop
          of animals, or a flight of locusts: – Gentile, heathen, nation,
          people
          .

          It also can mean “nation” and “people”. Notice in those instances it left the description blank of any discernible trait. This is why I caution people so much when they use a Concordance. We cannot simply pick and choose which words we want to insert. We need to use everything we understand about the scriptures and ensure we have not taken a word and inserted it out of context. This is very, very serious. Please turn your Bible with me to,

          Genesis 17:5
          5 “Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.”

          This word “nations” is 1471 in the Strong’s and the same word referenced above which can mean “heathen”, “foreign nation,” etc. God was not calling Abraham to become “heathen” or to become “foreign nations”. God was simply telling Abraham his offspring would become many “nations”. So we need to be very careful with how we interpret a word.

          Further, God does not identify people by the nation they are from, men do. He identifies them by what is in their heart, what they believe. If they believe in our Father they are grafted in and are counted one of our Father’s children.

          The United States while they consist of the Tribes of Israel primarily have become a “heathen nation” by their practices and policies. Does this make you or I a “heathen”? Of course not.

          Please turn your Bible with me to,

          Galatians 3:26-28
          26 “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.”

          27 “For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.”

          28 “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.”

          Christ breaks down any barriers we may think exist.

          Galatians 3:29
          29 “And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”

          In closing I will leave everyone with,

          Ephesians 2:19
          19 “Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;”

          Amen.

          • “I cannot make out exactly what your point is in your comment other than you mentioned it is your understanding “Gentile” means foreign nation.”

            I’m sorry if I was not clear on that, Brandon…

            You’ve stated that: “What is a “heathen”, someone of a different race?”
            a “heathen” or “Gentile” is a worshiper of false gods.”
            *****Those words are mostly used for the 6th day creation, who *are* of different races / pedigree, that did not yet have God’s Word…whenever the word “heathen” is used, it usually refers to the *FOREIGN NATIONS / NATIONS* aside from the Israelites who were given God’s Word, and through which Christ would come. I’ve been taught over the years…that whenever the word ”heathen” is used…the *better* translation would have been “Nation”…as in *Foreign Nation* to the Israelites.
            As for the word “Gentile”….it was also used for those of the 6th day creation…who had formed NATIONS, that were not yet given God’s Word, as the Israelites were.
            I was taught…whenever we see the word “Gentile” used…it usually refers to *NATIONS*…as in all Nations other than the Jacob’ites / Israel’ites.
            I was just trying to illustrate that…but I see that my thoughts may not have conveyed or flowed well enough on that.
            I’m a bit distracted today, so may be a bit off…I’ll re-read my comments later on, and try to edit for better flow as best I can.

      • Brandon, you know I respect your opinion…no, let me put that differently…I value your opinion. And that won’t change. You’ve done so very much with this site to spread the truth and I know you’ll continue to…and I’ll continue following this site everyday. We just don’t agree on this topic. I think it’s made pretty clear in the law in many places that Israelites were to not inter-marry with non-Israelites. And there was never any taking back of that fact. The ordinances were done away with, but we know the law wasn’t. With that said, that’s my opinion. That’s how I have interpreted the scriptures. I may be right, may be wrong (won’t be the first time, lemme tell ya). It doesn’t affect my admiration for you and for the work you’ve done here on this site. We all can’t possibly agree all the time. And I hope no one gets the idea that I’m “racist” or a hater of anyone. You are correct in that God is not a respecter of persons. Many millions of non-Israelites will be present in the final earth age, we know that from Revelation 21:24. And I do believe there will be some Israelites who’ll suffer the Lake of Fire. But in this present earth age, I just believe He made His creation the way he wanted it, and that we shouldn’t tamper with it. Just my opinion.

        • Thank you for the comment and notes Jack. There is certainly nothing wrong with disagreement and I would agree no one has it all right and we will never agree on everything.

          However, no one has documented anywhere in the Word that God was against inter-racial marriages. He never said it so do not state it as fact when it is not. God told Solomon not to take a wife of the nations because their gods would corrupt His people as we pointed out and God was correct. Aside from that there is no evidence for what you just stated. With that I think I have said everything I can say on this subject. Have a good evening.

          • Well, He was certainly against inter-racial blood in the lineage of Christ. And He is our example of the perfect man.

          • King of kings = Judah
            Lord of lords = Levi

            Nothing else would suffice, not even the other Israelite tribes. Thank you.

          • Yes, to legitimately be a King and a Priest. A subset (that’s not the best description, but gets the point across), if you will, of the Adamic people who were, themselves, to be an example.

            The believing ethnos are grafted in (Romans 11) A graft doesn’t change the natural makeup of the parent tree. Nor does the parent tree change the natural makeup of the graft.

            We can say that only has a spiritual meaning, but God’s Word is true in more than one level of meaning.

          • What “inter-racial blood in the lineage of Christ.” kind of statement is that, Tim?
            CHRIST WAS TO BE “UNBLEMISHED”…FOR THE ATONING OF OUR SINS…THAT SACRIFICIAL LAMB…WITHOUT SIN…GOD WILLED IT…AND SO IT WAS DONE! NOTHING ELSE REALLY MATTERS! PRAISES BE TO OUR LORD GOD…”EMMANUEL”…GOD WITH US!
            Let’s enjoy the Lineage together, and be thankful! We have a debt to pay! CHRIST YESHUA paid ours in *FULL*…on the cross!
            *****Judah and Levi are both ADAMIC people…and are 2 of the 12 Tribes of Jacob aka Israel!
            We look to the “lineage” of Mary…both her parents in Luke chapter 3 for the Key!
            I suggest you start reading at>>>>
            Luke 3:23 “And Jesus Himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as it was supposed) the Son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli,”

            As you read these names, the term “Which was”, in the Hebrew text is what we use today as “which was supposed or reckoned by law”, or
            better know as “in-laws; father in law etc.”. This is recording the in-laws of Joseph, or the bloodline of Mary’s father. We know Mary’s mother is of the lineage of Aaron, or *LEVI*…THE PRIEST-LINE…
            as Mary and Elisabeth were cousins. Mary’s mother and Elisabeth’s
            mother were sisters, giving Jesus the lineage of *BOTH* Priest and
            KING…a Title best described as….KING of kings and LORD of lords!

            *****The lineage of Christ came through SETH, the second son of ADAM because Cain murdered his half brother Abel. As you go through these many names, remember that each of them played a part in the stories of
            the entire Old Testament. The Bible is a story of *ONE*man…ADAM… and his family….and *all* those who came in contact with them. All the other nations of the earth that are part of our Bible enter by what they did to this family either for good or bad. There are no cover-ups in the Scripture text, for if there are, it is by the hand of a Kenite Scribe trying to hide themselves as they came into control, and took over the duties of the scribes following the captivity of JUDAH in Babylon.

            ******Genealogy *ENDS* in Luke at>>>>>
            Luke 3:38 “Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of SETH, which was the son of ADAM, which was the son of GOD.”
            ******but this is where it really *BEGINS*…just read the names in *REVERSE* back up to Luke 3:23 to get a clearer picture.

            *****It is important to notice that last birth, “Which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.” Adam was created by God, the son of God. God was the father of Christ, the only begotten child of the Father. He became the Savior to the world.

          • What “inter-racial blood in the lineage of Christ.” kind of statement is that, Tim?
            CHRIST WAS TO BE “UNBLEMISHED”

            Exactly what I was pointing out. And He is our example.

          • Do not forget, that Christ was our *SAVIOR / SACRIFICIAL LAMB* for us sinners…no one else can *Atone* for us or take His place, we are *not* worthy…far from it! It is He that was totally *UNBLEMISHED* for that role! We are all sinners in the flesh, none of us are “righteous”…God Himself said so through His inspired Word! 1 John 1:8-10; Roman 3:10.
            However, God provided a Way for us sinners to be *UNBLEMISHED* as well…as evident in the following Scriptures>>>>
            Ephesians 5:25-27 “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave Himself for it; That He might SANCTIFY and CLEANSE it with the washing of water by the WORD, That He might present it to Himself a glorious church, NOT having spot, or wrinkle, or ANY such thing; BUT that it should be HOLY and *WITHOUT* BLEMISH.”

            *****Upon *REPENTANCE* we become spotless and *WITHOUT* blemish. That is why Jesus Christ paid the price; so all of our sins would be placed on Him, and our souls would become holy and without blemish.
            So YES!
            Christ is certainly our example, Tim! As believers, we should also pay attention to *ALL* of His inspired Word…including the ones through His Apostles (sent forth ones). We seek to absorb…*all*…of God’s inspired Word.
            Paul, was such an Apostle, sent forth by Christ and God the Father Himself….Paul had the *FULL GODHEAD HOLY SPIRIT* Power behind him, as evident in the following Scriptures showing his credentials>>>>
            Galatians 1:1 “Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;)”
            Romans 1:1 Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God,
            With that being stated…regarding Christian believers who are already espoused / married to an unbeliever, and may also be involved in an inter-racial relationship and are concerned about offending our Heavenly Father…I strongly suggest that you earnestly put your heart into reading Paul’s advice in 1 Corinthians 7:12 – 17.
            I can only hope…that it helps put your mind at peace!
            Christ, The Prince of Peace… gave His Life…to set us *FREE*…so that we can have…*PEACE* of mind!

    • I certainly understand your feelings on this this topic Jack. We definitely seek to please our heavenly Father whenever possible; and one way that we see that might possibly bring Him some pleasure is by keeping our race as close as possible to the way He created it. I see nothing wrong with this; and I’m sure our heavenly Father always appreciates our efforts that we go through whenever we show a commitment to His Word and try to bring Him some pleasure. And as you know, this is what He wanted from us when He created us! That and our love.
      God Bless you my Brother,
      Peace.

  3. I always look forward to WEB’S Q & A Brandon…It’s a great time to learn things anew and/or refresh our memories time! So greatly appreciated!

    Just adding a bit more as to Anthony’s question 2…regarding “race relationships”…particularly God’s *NATURAL* Order as to that…and a bit more as to…*why*…so ordered.

    Genesis 1:24-27 “And God said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind:” and it was so. 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. And God said, Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.

    *****It was on this sixth day that both man and woman of all races…EXCEPT…for the *ADAMIC* race, which were “FORMED” on the 8th Day of Creation….were “CREATED” also…and *EACH AFTER THEIR KIND*….GOD’S *NATURAL* ORDER FOR *BEASTS, LIVING CREATURES, INCLUDING…MANKIND. YET….all forms of *MANKIND*…red, yellow, brown, black or white…are *CREATED / FORMED* in the image of GOD. Each race has been created by God to it’s own glory, and has the Glory of God…all animal forms of life reproduced after its kind…God did not want the mixing…for He is all for>>>*NATURAL* order.

    Brandon has already shared one of the *major* reasons as to…why…God did *not* want mankind to break this *NATURAL* Order, as is further supported in the Book of Ezra, Chapter 9…among other Scriptures throughout God’s Word. * LOSS OF INHERITANCE* is another, as we would see for the *House of Judah…which goes for the *House of Israel* also….in the following Scriptures>>>>

    Ezra 9:12 “Now therefore give not your daughters unto their sons, neither take their daughters unto your sons, nor seek their peace or their wealth for ever: *THAT* ye may be strong, and eat the good of the land, and *LEAVE* it for an *INHERITANCE* to your children *FOR EVER*.”

    *****This verse addresses the risk of >>>>Loss of inheritance….which could be passed to the spouse and her / his family…GOD DECIDED ON THE ALLOTMENTS OF LAND FOR THE TRIBES…which *all* belong to our Heavenly Father to begin with…He created *ALL* things….He decided the *PORTIONS OF INHERITANCE*…like in Joshua 11:23 and Leviticus 25:23 – “The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land [is] mine; for ye [are] strangers and sojourners with me.”

    Ezra 9:14 “Should we again break Thy commandments, and *JOIN IN AFFINITY* with the people of these abominations? wouldest not Thou be angry with us till thou hadst consumed us, so that there should be no remnant nor escaping?”

    *****The phrase “join in affinity”, comes from the root expression of the Hebrew idiom, “To give a daughter by contract”…
    Strong’s H2859 – chathan khaw-than’; a primitive root; to give (a daughter) away in marriage;
    hence (generally) to contract affinity by marriage:—join in affinity, father in law, make marriages, mother in law, son in law.

    However…We as *CHRISTIAN* believers, should be guided by God’s / Christ’s inspired Word of the New Testament, regarding “relationships” as well….1 Corinthians 7:1-40 instructs well on that…I’ll share a few verses>>>>

    1 Corinthians 7:12 – 17 “But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife that
    believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away. 13 And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him. 14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy. 15 But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such [cases]: but God hath called us to peace. 16 For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save [thy] husband? or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save [thy] wife? 17 But as God hath distributed to every man, as the Lord hath called every one, so let him walk. And so ordain I in all churches.”

    *****I would take that to mean, in other words…*IF* a Christian believer is in such a relationship, as in already married to an *unbelieving spouse*>>>>>
    BLOOM WHERE YOU ARE PLANTED!
    Just some Food for thought!

    God Bless.

    • Thank you for the comment EyeonGod and you are very welcome.

      However, you have added a bit more here than what God actually said. God did not say “kind after kind” with respect to man. You added that yourself. Genesis 1:26-31 discusses the creation of man on the sixth day and nowhere did He say “kind after kind”. Why do you think that is? We are all one kind, that being mankind. However, we are different by our race, but we all share the same physical characteristics and the same size body structure in general. I think we all need to be extremely careful when we teach and discuss the Word. Let us all be honest as we can be, but let us not place words into God’s mouth. I know you mean well Eye and I am sure it was an oversight.

      People have attraction to people of all shapes, sizes and colors. Does this mean it is a wicked thing or against God or breaks a “natural order”? Of course not and someone will need to document that for me and everyone else if they believe it is.

      I believe our Father is wise enough to know that people are attracted to people no matter what race they are. With that He would understand there was the high possibility that the people would join together with another race in marriage. Had our Father had issue with that I believe He would state so in His Word. After all, God has even told us what we should eat, but He left out who we should marry? I do not believe that.

      Think back to the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11. The people were all of one speech and they consisted of many different peoples. God confounded their language and then spread the people around the earth. Why? Because they were trying to find salvation other than through our Father. Notice, God never said anything about people taking spouses from other races. I think this is very important, because essentially we have this huge melting pot and it only makes sense to me that some people took spouses that were different than their own race. Of course I cannot document that, but it is worth thinking about. It is also worth noting that the races have already mixed to a large degree and many believe the children of Satan purposely mixed their seed with the races as well in order to pollute them.

      I believe God did not give us instruction here because He knew the people would join together to a degree. Further, He created our being in The First Earth Age and it is in that likeness that we will return when Christ appears I believe.

      While the mixing of the races is something some of us may perceive God did not want and while it may seem to some that this is His preference, His Word does not say that. God made it a point to tell the Israelites not to take wives of those who had different gods. That was His concern, not the joining of different peoples nor did He ever mention it. If that was the concern He would have spelled that out for us if He had issue with it, especially to the people He chose to spread His Word to the world.

      • Brandon, I knew instinctively after reading Antony’s question that this topic would touch upon the sensitivity of many “waters”. I have heard PAM try and answer these questions touching upon the intermixing of the 8th day man with 6th day man. And most of his answers have been brought out in the above posts. I have also heard arguments that if God wanted the races mixed, He would have made us mixed; but He didn’t make us mixed; but instead, made us different and deemed [judged] it very good. However, it is written that we are all of the same flesh; 1cor. 15:39, “:…but there is one kind of flesh of men,…”; so, if we are of all one flesh, why would God have issue with what color our flesh is? He doesn’t see us as flesh but of spirit and soul. But, what he definitely did have issue with is when the terrestrial man mixed with celestial man. That is why God said about Noah in Genesis 6:9 “…: Noah was a just man and *perfect* in his generations,…”. This perfect means without blemish; i.e. “bodily and physical perfection.” (Bullinger, Companion Bible, Ap. 26.). This means his “flesh” was not mixed with the fallen angels; and not that Noah’s seed line had mixed with other nations’. However, l do believe (at this time) that Noah’s seed line was pure 8th day man from “The Adam”–but I digress!
        So, the point here is that until it can be documented by scripture, I have to concur that God doesn’t have a problem with marrying between different races and having children; as long as, both parents are of Christian faith; otherwise, as has been already stated, you risk idolatry entering into your house ,and thus, separating you from our heavenly Father. That would be very bad!! So, to avoid adultery/idolatry, I believe God recommends that we marry other Christians and to avoid inter-marriage between other religions — just a word to the wise.
        Peace.

        • Well said and documented Driving for God.

        • I can agree with most of what you said Driving for God , except the last part, if a Christian man or woman falls in love with a none christian then what?? or they get married have children does that mean trouble is coming, I guess Salomon would be one example, but then nobody should have that many wives ( drives a man to idolatry that’s my take on it ) I believe Paul had an opinion on this

          1Co 7:12 But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away.
          1Co 7:13 And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him.
          1Co 7:14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.
          1Co 7:15 But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace.
          1Co 7:16 For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife?

          I know when that love Bug Bites, NOTHING ELSE MATTERS, be any race any religion, any color, we see it every day some good some not so good, Who knows, whether thou shalt save thy ??

          anyway something meditate on. Peace

      • Thank you Brandon, for your response and caution as to… “the need to be extremely careful when we teach and discuss the Word.”… I totally agree, understood and appreciated! Let me try to clarify a couple of things.

        You’ve stated: “However, you have added a bit more here than what God actually said. God did not say “kind after kind” with respect to man.”

        It was not my intention to confuse or mislead anyone in so doing…I merely included the Scriptures with…”kind after kind”…which would have been better stated…*pedigree after pedigree* with regards to *mankind*…to show that God *does* have a…*Natural Order* to His Creation and Divine Plan in general. And His decision to put man in the flesh…was definitely not exempt from being included in that *Natural Order*…I believe.

        God created / formed…flesh mankind in the…Natural Order / pedigree… of the *main* races (approx 4 of them) that we see in this world…all those from the 6th and 8th day creation…but it was mankind…who decided to intermix through marriages or sexual relationships…that brought about the inter-racial masses we have with us today. Many did not remain pedigree, as they were originally created.

        Now…with that being said…

        Did God intend for us to remain pedigree…or…was He mainly concerned about the Jacobites / Israelites, through which Christ would come… following other nations into idolatry?

        You’ve stated: “God made it a point to tell the Israelites not to take wives of those who had different gods.”

        Well, what you’ve shared there, partly answers that question…for that is written! Throughout God’s Word, we’ll see that God *neither* wanted the Seed-line of Christ to be *POLLUTED* in any way, shape or form, for our Savior was to be totally unblemished / pedigree before His birth…nor did He want the Israelites to follow other nations into Idolatry.

        Now…for the sake of clarity…may it be known…that we are pretty much on the same page as to your response to me…and that’s precisely why I’ve ended my first comment the way I did. CHRISTIAN believers, who are unsure about inter-racial relationships, in which they are already involved, but concerned about doing right in the eyes of the Lord…should reference 1 Corinthians 7:1-40…and I went on to share a few verses from 1 Corinthians 7:12 – 17 to that effect.
        Point being my dear *CHRISTIAN* brothers and sisters >>>>>>>
        “BLOOM WHERE YOU ARE PLANTED!”
        In any event…what truly matters, is that …not being pedigree…. is certainly…*not*… the unforgivable sin…if…one believes that to be a sin. (Not referring to the perverted gibbor / giants here now, God is also their Judge)

        Thanks for all that you do on WEB in God’s Service, Brandon.

        • I have no idea how many races God originally created though the number is supposed to be low from my general understanding. With that said no one on the face of the earth could possibly have a solid “pedigree” would be my opinion. I find it interesting that even though the nations have been separated for the most part until modern times they still managed to mingle over the years.

          I hope in your closing remark you were not implying a person of two different races has committed any sort of sin because that is how it reads and that is not Biblical.

          • For the record, Brandon…I am not “implying a person of two races has committed any sort of sin”…
            I base my position on…1 Corinthians 7:12 – 17.
            It is certainly *not* my place to judge anyone…but God’s.

          • Food for thought regarding God’s Divine Plan for His created souls….
            We would all look *exactly* the way God created us originally in the First Earth Age…when we are back in our spiritual bodies!
            For lack of a better term…perfect *pedigree*…in the Third Earth Age.
            As for now…we do our best…to cross the finish line…the true Promise Land…His Eternal Kingdom, and let God be the Judge of the non-pedigree! He is *the* Righteous Judge. More importantly…
            2 Corinthians 6:14 – Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
            *Unrepentant* God-hating swines, we should really steer clear of! Don’t marry them!
            Meanwhile, we should keep the focus on staying in God’s Word, repenting of our sins…and keeping the*FULL* Armor of God, on and in place to stand against the “fiery darts” of the soon to be cast out / kicked out Antichrist and his unGodly 7000!
            Peace.
