Q u e s t i o n s..A b o u t..S c r i p t u r e s
p a g e..3 4

-Where did Cain.(Adam and Eve's first child).get his wife?

Either his sister or a relative or the devil, also from where Eve got Cain?.Genesis 4:1; 5:4.

If a sister or relative, this was before the advice in Leviticus 18:1-20.
 


-Genesis 19:30-38 Wasn't this incest?

God had not yet given the laws that He later did in the Old Testament against this:.Leviticus 18:1-20; 20th chapter; Deuteronomy 27:20-23. Note also the Old Testament law is now defunct.


-What are.(or represent).the seven Spirits mentioned in Revelation 1:4?

The seven Spirits are represented at the Throne of God, a description of which is in Chapter 4; Revelation 1:20.

These have authority over all the Earth, directed by Christ:.Revelation 5:6. These great and no doubt incredibly powerful spirit beings assist Christ. He is the Lamb.
 


-Revelation 2:26 What are the works we are enjoined to keep as mentioned here?

Notice in the scripture above that it says it's His works. What were His works? What was the work Emmanuel finished?.Luke 19:10; John 4:34; 6:28,29; 9:4; 17:4; 19:30; Hebrews 1:2,3; 3:6; 4:3.
   When Timothy was aged and ready to die he said:.2Timothy 4:7.


-Exodus 34:6,7.Here the verses say God is mercy and then proceeds with an example of no mercy by stating that the sins of the fathers carry on to the third and forth generation of his children? Huh?

Sounds like the Creator is saying He is able to be merciful to people and that He forgives all sin and that really doesn't clear anyone in his sight at all, so like, why then forgive? Like hello! What? It's like the second statement in verse 7 of the scripture negates the first, isn't it?

Then the third statement adds to the second statement, saying He'll make sure that up to and including the fourth generation will suffer. Well, such as some of the ancient religious translators thought.

Verse 7 as translated in the.King James Version:."Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin and that will by no means clear the guilty.(because under the ancient, now done away Mosaic Law, it was required to offer a sin offering and then offerings of thanks such as a burnt offering and a peace offering, these offerings done after one had sinned, thus puttng forth to the forgiveness which was to come with Christ when all sin for all time would be looked after); visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation."

The law, being still in effect meant that this was for a people who had agreed.(Exodus 24:3).to be under the government of it.

Also.Jeremiah 32:18 "You show lovingkindness unto thousands and recompense the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them. The Great, the Mighty God, the LORD of hosts is his name."

Jeremiah 32:18 word for word from the original:."Thou.(word 'thou' not in original but implied from previous verse).shewest.(original 'fashion', 'accomplish', 'make', 'bring about'). lovingkindness.(original 'show yourself kind', 'merciful').unto thousands.(corroborates with original).and recompensest.(means 'to be in a covenant of peace', 'make peace with', 'be finished', 'be ended', 'to be repaid', 'requited', 'to make an end of', 'complete', 'perform', 'pay' {made provision for paying it forward to the time of Christ and His sacrifice for all sin for all time}).the (word 'the' not in original).iniquity.(corroborates with original).of the.(words 'of the' not in original).fathers.('families', 'chief').into the.(words 'into the' not in original).bosom.(corroborates with original).of their.(words 'of their' not in original).children.(corroborates with original).after.(corroborates with original).them.(word 'them' not in original). The Great, the Mighty God, the LORD of hosts is his name.(last line corroborates with original except for the 'the's' and the words 'of' and 'is his')."

And so, word for word from the original of.Exodus 34:7."Keeping mercy for thousands.(original is."keeping mercy thousand{s}"), forgiving.("bearing, carrying, taking away, lifting up").iniquity and transgression and sin.(words."iniquity, transgression, sin".corroborate with original) and that will by no means clear.(means."to be cleaned out, purged, to be empty, to be free, acquit, unpunished, guiltless, innocent").the.(word."the".not in the original, but implied).guilty.(word 'guilty' not in the original); visiting.(means to."commit for care, deposited, to be sought, be needed, be lacking, number, visit, pay attention to, observe, punish, appoint, commit, miss").the iniquity.(corroborates with original).of the fathers.(or the."families, chief").upon the.(words."upon the".not in original).children.(corroborates with original).and upon the.(words."and upon the".not in original).children's.(corroborates with original and can also be plural).children, unto the.(words."children, unto the".not in original).third.(corroborates with original).and to the.(words."and to the".not in original).fourth.(corroborates with original).generation.(word."generation".not in original)."
   So, to put it as close to the original as I think it should be:."Keeping mercy, thousands forgiven iniquity, transgression, sin, free, unpunished, guiltless, paying attention in this regard especially to the iniquity of family heads with children and their children's children.".That is, the Creator is very concerned with showing mercy and kindness to grandfathers and grandmothers as they for the most part have moved on from the sins of youth and need not any longer be burdened with guilt for sins they would not now likely do:.Psalms 25:7. Are we as forgiving as that? So, then, the children and children's children we thought were to be under some sort of a curse, were also covered by the love and forgiveness of Creator-God.

This previous verse sets the tone for the one we just dissected:.Exodus 34:6 "And the LORD passed by before him and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering and abundant in goodness and truth."

And this all fits with the Creator being kind to the unthankful and to the evil:.Luke 6:35; 9:54-56; Psalms 145:9. It's not kindness to curse your children and in turn their children, for sins one has committed. The scripture in Exodus 34:7 as translated makes the Creator out to be a being looking to impose retributive judgment on sinners' children and even their children. The verse contradicts the loving nature of the Creator shown toward all who want forgiveness for sin. In the Old Testament people showed this by sacrifices and offerings. In the New Testament, Emmanuel was our sacrifice and His offering was once for all.

Creator-God's nature is one of justice, requiring something to pay for sin and He made provision for that in ancient times by sin, burnt and peace offerings which put those sins away from the men and women committing them, putting them instead toward the future sacrifice of Emmanuel to get rid of all sin for all time for everyone. Shame on the translators for allowing such gross.improprieties to be in the Holy Bible.

Psalms 86:15 "But thou O Lord, are a God full of compassion and gracious, longsuffering and plenteous in mercy and truth."
Psalms 66:20 "Blessed be God, which has not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me."
Romans 4:8 "Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin." (*)
1Samuel 12:22 "For the LORD will not forsake his people for his great name's sake, because it has pleased the LORD to make you his people."

Ok, but what about God's directions to be cruel as in the Old Testament writings?

"Be grateful for all the good that currently exists in your life. If all things are an
energetic vibration.(which they are).and energy flows where attention goes
(which it does), then to place your consistent attention upon the things for which
you're grateful is one of the most powerful things you can do. Unlike the message of
"I don't have it", when you place your attention with gratitude on all the goodness that
currently exists.(whether you have it yet or not), it's like stating "Thank you for this. Send me more.
When you get grateful, the universe sends you more to be grateful for."
...James Arthur Ray
