The Mathematical Case for the Flood

If evolutionists are correct and modern man evolved 500,000 years ago (some would go back as far as 2,000,000 BC), at a population growth rate of 0.01%, there would have been approximately 20,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (that is 2 with 43 zeroes) people on the Earth by the time Christ was born. Keep in mind that evolutionists would … Continue reading The Mathematical Case for the Flood

Sons of God: Angels or Sethites

Apparently this is quite the interesting argument in Christian circles. When reading Genesis 6, the KJV says in verses 2-4: “That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. 3 And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for … Continue reading Sons of God: Angels or Sethites

Notes on Genesis 48-50

As Jacob (Israel) was dying, he offered up many blessings and prophecies for his children and grandchildren. He begins by once again demonstrating that being firstborn is no guarantee that you will be blessed. Like Seth over Cain, Jacob over Esau, and Joseph and Judah over Reuben, Israel gives his blessing to Ephraim over Manasseh. … Continue reading Notes on Genesis 48-50

Notes on Genesis 46-47

Chapter 46 lists a number of descendants from the twelve tribes. All together, 70 souls from the house of Israel came to Egypt (v. 27). Verse 30 produces a beautiful moment when Jacob sees his son that he believed had been dead all these years. He says, "now let me die, since I have seen … Continue reading Notes on Genesis 46-47

Notes on Genesis 43-45

Ethnocentrism has existed since Cain killed Abel and was cursed by God. The children of Noah, the three main representatives of the original ethnicities, were also cursed and blessed accordingly. Their offspring have been at war with one another since Ham sodomized his drunken father. In Genesis 43:32 we see this trend continuing. The Egyptians … Continue reading Notes on Genesis 43-45

Notes on Genesis 41-42

I have heard the story of Joseph dozens of times in my life. The focus has always been on either Joseph being a type of Christ or as an example of how we never understand God’s plan. That when we think all is lost and our lives are worthless, God uses our suffering to bless … Continue reading Notes on Genesis 41-42

Notes on Genesis 38-40

Judah (the Messianic line) married a Canaanite woman (Hamitic) and had many sons. The firstborn, who married Tamar, was killed by God for being wicked. The second was killed by God for not being with Tamar. The Messianic line now passed through Pharez, the son of Judah and Tamar. The messy Messianic line is full … Continue reading Notes on Genesis 38-40

Notes on Genesis 35-37

Idols, images, and gods. Genesis 35:2 has Jacob (Israel) warning his family to put away their “strange gods.” This is in reference to the statues and trinkets that the family stole from Dinah’s rapists who were slaughtered in chapter 34, and the “images” (some translations say “idols”) stolen from Laban way back in chapter 31. … Continue reading Notes on Genesis 35-37

Notes on Genesis 32-34

We cannot escape our sin nature. Even after God blesses us and teaches us a strong lesson, we fall back into old habits. Several years had passed since Jacob lied and essentially stole Esau’s blessing when the two were reunited. We should note that Jacob (Israel) was in total fear of Esau (Rome) when Esau … Continue reading Notes on Genesis 32-34

Notes on Genesis 30-31

Of the twelve tribes of Israel, I have barely heard any discussion of Dan. However, the tribe of Dan may be the most interesting and important save for Judah. When the tribes of Israel are mentioned in Revelation 7, the tribes of Dan and Ephraim are not. Ephraim was blotted out because of their penchant … Continue reading Notes on Genesis 30-31
