In Genesis 1:27, God said “Let us make man in our image…” God was talking to the Logos (Jesus’ name before he became a human) and the angelic family. God is the great architect of His plan and He used the Logos and the angels to [...]
The Bible does not directly answer your question, so we will reason on this topic using scriptural principles. We may certainly rest assured that God made us through wisdom and love. Ecclesiastes 3:11, “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also [...]
In reference to Genesis 2 verses 10-14, where are the Pishon, Gihon, Tigris and Euphrates today and which countries are Havilah, Cush and Assyria?
The scholarly community is divided as to where these ancient rivers and countries are located. The following answer presents one view: There are more than one land of Havilah and of Cush respectively mentioned in the Bible, wherein lies the confusion. However, the verses [...]
The Genesis 2:1-25 account of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden omits any reference to other cavemen or species of humans. The oneness of the human family is reaffirmed by the Apostle Paul when speaking in Athens; “And [God] hath made of [...]
While some worship idols, images created by human hands, Paul declares, “…no idol is anything in the world…there is no God but one.” (1Corinthians 8:4 ASV). In 1 Corinthians 8:6, he continues by proclaiming that there is one God (chief, supreme being), the Father [...]
Genesis records that Adam had only one wife, Eve. Some confuse the two accounts of the creation of man (Genesis 1 and Genesis 2) as different creations of different people. However, Genesis 1 simply gives a general overview of man’s creation. Genesis 2 offers [...]
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” Genesis 1:1 The word “God” in this verse is the Hebrew word, ‘elohim. The greatly respected Bible translator Jospeh Bryant Rotherham has the following comment in The Emphasized Bible: “It should be carefully observed [...]
Isaiah 43:1, 7, “But now, thus says the LORD, who created you, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel: ‘Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine’… ‘Everyone who is called by My [...]
The Bible talks about the earth being flat not round. I take the scripture literally. Could NASA and the world be lying?
Some scriptures are not meant to be understood as literal. For example the Israelites wandered in the wilderness for forty years. However Hebrews 3:8-9 reads, "do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, on the day of testing in the wilderness, where your [...]
God did not create sin; Lucifer did. The Bible traces the origin of sin back to the Garden of Eden. Genesis 1:26,27 “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion…over all the earth…So God [...]
Yes, Adam was the first man. Genesis 2:7,8, "And the LORD God formed man (the Hebrew word is Adam) of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. And the LORD God planted a garden [...]
Did or didn't Satan fall in Genesis1:2 when "the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep"?
The darkness upon the earth in Genesis 1:2 is not referring to evilness. This verse provides a simple, accurate description of the forming of planet earth. In the beginning, the earth’s surface was dark covered with thick clouds. Light could not penetrate the thick [...]
There are a couple of Scriptures which allude to the answer. First, when God created Adam and Eve, He told them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth." (Genesis 1:28) Again, He told Jacob to "be fruitful and multiply; A nation and a [...]
You are correct that God knew "the world was going to be like this". With that knowledge He could have created man as a robot programmed not to sin, but instead He gave Adam a conscience (a moral sense), told him the rules and gave [...]
God is the Creator of Everything!!! So why did he create Lucifer? Even though Lucifer was created to worship God. Did not God know that Lucifer would turn against him
Rev. 19:6, "...Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!" Yes, our Father is omnipotent, all powerful, all seeing. But, He is a Father, not a robot-builder. His creation was given the power of choice, along with all other powers and privileges attached to their [...]
This question may be on the minds of a lot of people these days. Looking at the trouble that is happening around the world makes people ask “if God exists, why would he let this happen? If God exists, why is he so quiet?” [...]
If there was an answer to “who made God”, your next question would be “who made him”? This could be a never ending cycle. We, as thinking intelligent creatures, believe that everything has a beginning and has an end. The scriptures speak of beginnings, [...]
God did create a perfect earth and a perfect human family to enjoy it! In Genesis, we are told that after God created Adam, He pronounced His creation “very good.” Adam was indeed a perfect man living in a perfect home. But Adam’s free [...]
Eden – Here is the description of Eden that appears in Genesis 2:10-14, “And a river went out of Eden giving water to the garden; and from there it was parted and became four streams. The name of the first is Pison, which goes [...]
In the book of Genesis, we read that in the beginning God created first a man (Adam) to exercise dominion over his creation and subsequently a woman (Eve) as the man's "suitable helper" (Genesis 2:18, 20). Then Genesis goes on to say: "Therefore a [...]
