Without the shedding of Blood there is no remission of Sins Hebrews 9:12. And it was a type and shadow of things to come being Jesus the spotless Lamb. Come on guys it's not rocket science.

I can only offer in form of an interpretation: Genesis 1:1—2:3 is a picture of God's purpose [which is to express Himself through man and to exercise His dominion with man (Gen 1:26)], and 2:4-25 is a portrait of the way to fulfill God's purpose. This is why we have the second record of creation in Genesis 2. Genesis 1 reveals God's purpose in creating ...

Yes, there are 2 creation accounts. According to commentator and foremost authority on Genesis Gordon J. Wenham in Story as Torah, this is because Genesis 1 is a response to the Enûma Eliš while Genesis 2 is a response to the Egyptian creation accounts. Wenham believes that the first account was added after the second account. Furthermore, it became common ...

In Chapter 2 of A.W. Tozer's "Knowledge of the Holy" he puts it this way: "When the Scripture states that man was made in the image of God, we dare not add to that statement an idea from our own head and make it mean "in the exact image." To do so is to make man a replica of God, and that is to lose the unicity of God and end with no God at all. It is to ...

Genesis Chapter 9 tells of God speaking to Noah about what happens after the flood. Chapter 10 Table of Nations is the lineage of Noah's sons that spread throughout the world after the flood. In Chapter 9 God told Noah that his seed would be spread throughout the world. So after the flood the decedents of Noah (Table of Nations) spread throughout the ...

I agreed with most of what LCIII said, so to add to the answer, I would suggest that the curse that Cain received doesn't matter anymore since all of his decendants are dead. They died in the Flood. I've had to explain that to a few people since they don't realize the flood killed everyone but Noah and his family. All of us are decendants of Noah. Canaan was ...

It could be that he was alive before the time was shortened, and as you can see if you read through the chronology, the shortening of the lifespan happened slowly, generation by generation. This is backed up by how it coincides with the flood, at which point the level of oxygen in the air depleted (perhaps to do with the increase in water for the flood, ...

Your question amounts to: "Why do the punishments of original sin remain after baptism?" The punishments are, as Gen. 3:16-19, says: For women: painful childbirth subjection to man For men: hard work, toil, etc. for bread-wining St. Thomas Aquinas addresses the question of "Whether Baptism should take away the penalties of sin that belong to this ...

A common Evangelical answer to your question would be that even though Christ's work on the cross was* to redeem mankind from the effects of the fall, there is a now-and-not-yet-ness in regard to the complete outworking of the victory won at Calvary (*ie 'was' is really 'was'/'is'/'will be') . In particular, the physical creation in general and our mortal ...

You are mistaken in stating that the pain of childbirth is in retribution for eating the fruit, That punishment was given by God as a punishment for the sin of disobeying his command not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. The reason that the punishment continues today is not because of Eve's original sin, but instead would appear to be ...

My understanding, is the "Day" refers to a certain period of time and not necessary 24 hrs or 1000 years. It could be 1,000,000 years, or it could be 1 hour, we'll never know. For God, time is irrelevant and time doesn't apply to Him the same way as it does to us here on earth. In fact, if you read the Bible carefully, each day (time period) of creation ...

Abraham's laugh was a laugh of joy, while Sarah's laugh was a laugh of contempt. God looks at the heart or that is to say he looks at the underlying cause. The heart in Christianity is believed to be the place where one's loyalty, belief, dedication, and so on is lodged. All Scripture is quoted from the King James translation. Matthew 12:35 A good ...

Abraham was called the father of many nations by God in Gen. 17. "17 When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to him and said, “I am God Almighty[a]; walk before me faithfully and be blameless. 2 Then I will make my covenant between me and you and will greatly increase your numbers." 3 Abram fell facedown, and God said to him, 4 “As for me, ...

Possibly God commanded us a His followers to procreate so that we will begin something here on earth, that will echo in eternity on the New Earth! Our believing children will populate the New Heaven and New Earth! Isn't that reason enough? What greater example of reaping and sowing throughout eternity than children to bask in the Glory of God forever?

As you can see; from this Patriarch lineage depiction taken from the book of Genesis, Abraham was indeed the father of many Nations. There are some Things worthy of notice which many are not aware of: Abram had a second wife named Keturah and had six sons by her, and possibly daughters. Rebecca was Isaac's cousin. Basemath/Mahalth was Esau's cousin. ...

Abraham was the progenitor of the following nations: Jews, Ishmaelites, Edomites, and Zimranites, Jokshanites, Medanites, Midianites, Ishbakites, and Shuahites

God was taking the "long view" in His prophetic word about the generations to follow that righteous man of faith, Abraham, whose name means father of nations. Remember, Abraham's former name, Abram, meant "exalted father"; after God's promise (or covenant) with him in Genesis 17, however, Abraham's status had changed. From his loins would come many people ...

As righteousness that was applied to Abraham goes, Christians who have a real and vital connection and relationship with God and who are growing in it, will have comparable traits to Abraham in circumspect living in faith and morals. Someone who becomes a Christian, a truly born again one, can come from a life of un-righteousness, however, a relationship ...

What kind of man is righteous in our times? Romans 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: Christians have the righteousness of Christ imputed to us. Philippians 3:9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by ...

I have found this discussed in a couple of places. It is compared to Romans 7:5-7. An excerpt from the third century father Methodius: Read a compendious interpretation of some apostolic words from the same discourse. Let us see, then, what it is that we have endeavoured to say respecting the apostle. For this saying of his, “I was alive without the law ...
