Re: Nephilim -Mark 12:25

I agree that the Prince of Persia in Daniel is referring to an angelic being, but not a "son of God" because the Prince of Persia appears to be a fallen angel . I agree that the being called the Prince of Persia was a fallen angel ( rebelling against God's messenger Gabriel) BUT that he is referred...

Re: Yanny or Laurel Debate?

I don't know what this means, but I've actually heard both. Most of the time I've heard Laurel... listening to the radio, watching TV, and on my PC. However I did hear Yanny once, and that intrigued me because I've heard Laurel every other time. The time I heard Yanny was when I was in the living ro...

Re: Nephilim -Mark 12:25

Moses wrote Deuteronomy after the children of Israel came out of Egypt right before he died. So the dividing of the nations in Genesis 10 according to the seventy sons of Noah and the seventy children of Jacob/Israel going into Egypt (Exodus 1:1-5) were both history when Moses wrote Deuteronomy. Th...

Re: Nephilim -Mark 12:25

Let me take a shot at some of these... Please explain, from the bible, what specific sin the angles that were imprisoned were guilt of? According to Jude 1:6 the angels are imprisoned because: - they did not keep their proper domain - they left their own abode Please show me were and when, in the bi...

Re: What is His name?

I get confused between YHWH, Jesus, Christ, Lord, God, Father, Son. Is Jesus our Lord God YHWH? Yes, there are a number of times in the NT where Jesus is identified with YHWH from the OT. Can we say "Jesus is Lord God who raised Himself from the dead"? I think we can Scripturally say that God the S...

Re: What is His name?

How do I "call on the name of the Lord" (Romans 10:13) ? What is His name? Romans 10:13 is quoting Joel 2:32 which is part of a prophecy in Joel 2:28-32 about the future (at the time of Joel) "Day of the Lord" In Joel 2:32 "the name of the Lord" refers to God's covenant name (YHWH/Yahweh/Jehovah) w...

Re: Nephilim -Mark 12:25

Not until Hosea 1:10 is there any clue that sons of men becoming sons of God as that would be impossible before Jesus came. The following two verses from Scripture directly contradict your assertion. - Deut 14:1-2 (which was written by Moses before the time of Hosea) refers to God's covenant people...

in fact one must twist scriptures to prove sons of gods are all human:
You are playing with strawmen again...
No one is claiming that "sons of God" always refers to humans.
I think it is clear that Job does refer to angels in service to God as "sons of God"

Re: Nephilim -Mark 12:25

One would think that with the intranet webz nowadays, it would be fairly easy to find a list of the times that angels appeared in human form, in scripture. I just can't find any such list. Here is a list of the times that angels are mentioned in Genesis - Genesis 16:7 - Genesis 18:2 - Genesis 19:6 ...

Re: Cain, Noah and Agriculture

So, DB - as an enormous amount of study, research and wide-ranging and often contentious opinions have raged over this question, why do you think the text wasn't given in a way so as to have made it crystal clear - to the point the issue would have no reasonable debate? Because there is no way God ...

Re: Cain, Noah and Agriculture

DB, have you ever read Rich Deem's article on the telescoping of the Bible genealogies? http://www.godandscience.org/youngearth/genesis_genealogies.html Yes, I have... and to be honest, that used to be my position. And with other genealogies in Scripture we can observe telescoping. Matthew 1 is a g...

Re: Cain, Noah and Agriculture

My understanding is that genetically speaking we date our last common ancestors long before 15k BC, and we can not date Noah or Adam after our MRCA. So on a larger time scale where do we place them, especially if we hold that Adam truly is an ancestor to all humans today Again you are asking precis...
