GINOLJC, to all
Sorry, my friend. That would be the "days" plural.
first, I truly thank you for the reply. 101G like you, because at least you try, and speak sometimes intelligently. but her no cigar. listen and learn.
scripture, Genesis 2:4 "These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day
that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens
," did you see that? " in the day
", in the day
", NOT DAY(S), but "DAY". question, "is day in the verse plural?" no, because in the six days
of creation consist of a "day" when he, God made something, do you understand now. God didn't make everything in a single "DAY" but each "DAY" in the six combined "days" he did. so you're reproved there. but thanks for the effort.
It doesn't say either or, it doesn't say multiple days.
day one, day two day three....... to day six. 1-6 is a multiple. the term multiple means, "having or involving several parts, elements, or members". now if you have a different explanation, please put it on table for discussion.
If there arises among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and gives you a sign or a wonder,And the sign or the wonder, comes to pass, of which he spoke to you, saying, Let us go after other gods, which you have not known, and let us serve them;You shall not listen to the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams; for the Lord your God tests you, to know whether you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
Let's put that together: ... the sign or wonder comes to pass ... for the Lord your God tests you.
The fruit is a test.
you gave the answer in the response. listen, "he spoke to you, saying, Let us go after other gods," THE FRUIT OF THE LIPS" you know them by the fruit, and hear is what he said, "go after other gods" now my friend, are you going to eat the FRUIT of a false prophet, no matter the signs and wonders done, when God all ready said, Exodus 20:3 "Thou shalt have no other gods before me
.", and he said it again, PLAINLY. Deuteronomy 5:7 "Thou shalt have none other gods before me." see, it was in your response. "You shall not listen to the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams; for the Lord your God tests you, to know whether you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
". ,.,............ Hello, anyone home?
understand, fruit is not just in signs or wonders, listen. Hebrews 13:15 "By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.
" God "CREATED" the FRUIT of the LIPS, Isaiah 57:19 "I create the fruit of the lips
; Peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near, saith the LORD; and I will heal him." WHICH MEANS TRUTH, hello?
now think, the FRUIT in the Garden was it PHYSICAL.... Fruit? no. see, just like with false prophets, they LIE.... now watch the FRUIT, Hosea 10:13 "Ye have plowed wickedness, ye have reaped iniquity; ye have eaten the fruit of lies:
because thou didst trust in thy way, in the multitude of thy mighty men."
see, false prophets are know by their FRUIT/LIES, the signs and wonder are a smoke screen to try and cover their LIE. don't go after because of the signs or wonder, WATCH what they SAY. and you will KNOW THEM.
when the prophet said, "go after other gods", 101G could care less if he jumped out of a airplane without a parachute and landed on his feet. 101G IS NOT, I REPETE, 101G IS NOT GOING AFTER OTHER gods.
YES, YOU GOT IT RIGHT, "Let's put that together: ... the sign or wonder comes to pass ... for the Lord your God tests you.
The fruit is a test
".BINGO, come to the head of the class. see God test for RIGHTEOUSNESS
now one thing dybmh, why did you not say that at the beginning, had me to write all that...... I goanna get you...... but IN LOVE .....
well, I guess 101G better read all of the post first ...... lol, lol, lol.
Good, our natural eyes. That is exacty what I was talking about when I objected to judging based on appearances. Do we still disagree on this?
correct, 101G is going to let you in on a little secret god gave unto me. 101G see with his ears. yes, hearing is the key, but one must HEAR intelligently, (that is with UNDERSTANDING). that's why 101G broke with his traditional beliefs, we MUST "HEAR" in order to "KNOW" God.
and one of the BIGGEST mistakes we all have made is Deuteronomy 6:4 "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD
:" we still, (some of us) have not hear what this one verse is saying. understand, when 101G read the bible with the Holy ONE, 101G read with his EARS. that's why 101G understand scripture, he "hear" the Wiord of God instead of just LOOKING at it. for 101G walk by FAITH, and NOT by sight.
now, is 101G perfect? no, but trying with God help.
I say the desire was the problem. The desire to be like a god.
101G agree with you, it was not just the FRUIT problem it was a Eve problem, in not being fully developed in the brain to make a TRUTHFUL, not a LOGICAL "CHOICE", but a "TRUTFUL" CHOICE. intelligent vs spirituality, and this choice is still going on now, even as we speak. man has made leaps and bounds in the intelligent arena, but we still cannot get along with one another.
I've asked myself that question many times. Honestly I'm not sure how that works.
me too.... (smile)
Woh. That doesn't sound right. The fruit came from the tree, the tree was off limits.
וַיְצַו יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהִים עַל־הָֽאָדָם לֵאמֹר מִכֹּל עֵץ־הַגָּן אָכֹל תֹּאכֵֽל׃
And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat;
וּמֵעֵץ הַדַּעַת טוֹב וָרָע לֹא תֹאכַל מִמֶּנּוּ כִּי בְּיוֹם אֲכָלְךָ מִמֶּנּוּ מוֹת תָּמֽוּת׃
But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you shall not eat from it; for in the day that you eat from it you shall surely die.
From it, מִמֶּ֫נּוּ. H4480.
question, as you said above, the command was not to EAT of one TREE only, he said nothing of its fruit. listen to the LIE of the devil carefully. Genesis 3:1 "Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
" now compare to what God actually said. Genesis 2:16 "And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat
:" Genesis 2:17 "But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it:
for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die."
did you see the "LIE" in what the devil said, " Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
the LIE was to TEMP/with EVIL the TRUTH, or CHANGE the TRUTH to a LIE. God said you may FREELY EAT of "EVERY" Tree, except one. but the probation to that tree was for adam and eve.... themselves to eat of it themselves, or by themselves. see, the probation was for them not to EAT. not that they could NEVER eat of the tree, but that they was not to eat of it.
as said, "the mistake was not in the EATING of the FRUIT", but how they ate. ...... by themselves, WITHOUT SUPERVISION, OR PERMISSION. here is my reasoning behind this. why put a tree before you if you will never have anything to do with it. the tree was there .... NOT for a test. if so, God would have run the testing. no, I cannot believe that. because all thing was made GOOD. well children are to be taught and trained in the right way. one cannot teach a child calculus first before learning basic mathematics, it's called "progression" which means the process of developing or moving gradually towards a more advanced state. and eve jumped the gun so to say. Genesis 3:6 "And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise
, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat."
that's the key, "she" desired to become wise in her OWN MIND, which was not yet fully developed. because WISDOM COME OUT OF GOD MOUTH scripture, Proverbs 2:6 "For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth
cometh knowledge and understanding."
and KNOWLEDGE and UNDERSTANDING is a Spiritual Gift. supportive scripture, 1 Corinthians 12:7 "But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal." 1 Corinthians 12:8 "For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom
; to another the word of knowledge
by the same Spirit;" a word of WISDOM spoken, out of the MOUTH, come UNDERSTANDING. and by the Spirit, (and God is a Spirit, John 4:24a), gives KNOWLEDGE.
see, one must allow God to you. as roverbs 2:6 states,"For the LORD giveth wisdom
: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
God who is a Spirit Gives Wisdom how? .... out of his mouth. so eve at the FRUIT of LIES.
brother dybmh, you have made me now to go back and study this some more where as I had put it of many times, now you're making me by God to research this out fully now I cannot put this off any longer. so thanks.
I got to go now because there is some studying/food to be eaten.
