I wonder...
« on: February 15, 2014, 07:13:01 AM »
I wonder how Adam felt, seeing most of his offspring denying God and living lives of corruption? Adam lived 930 years, and then it was only about 600 until the flood, where everyone but Noah had turned their back on God. Don't you think it was pretty much headed in that direction before Adam died? I would say it vexed his very soul to see his progeny denying the very one that Adam had walked and had fellowship with.

Yes, that thought crossed my mind too i.e. how did Adam feel? I also speculate that Adam and Eve made it into heaven because God slew an animal to make clothes (coverings) for them in lieu of a fig leaf covering. The sacrificial animal pointed to the sacrifice of the future Messiah (now past).

Adam was also present to see the birth of the Nephellim.  :o
"So then, stand firm and hold to the traditions :o which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter" (2 Thessalonians 2:15).

It was Noah who was 600 years of age when the flood took pace, according to Gen:7:6.  Which was 1,656 years after Adam was created.  Methuselah lived 969 years right up to the year oif the flood, when he died.

Religious Lie: "God only paid for sins until the next time you sin."
Forgiveness is available until we get to eternity and then our eternal fate is sealed. Right now, people are free to sin and repent; but there is no forgiveness of sin for the damned in hell.

JUST A THINK ABOUT IT: Will you embrace the full meaning of Christmas? Jesus didn't die just so you could go to heaven. He came to give you life - His life; an abundant life free from guilt, condemnation, and slavery to both sins and religion. He came to bring a grace revolution to the world and tha
