The answer is in the verses themselves: Gen 8:22 says that seasons would last, "As long as the earth endures". Further, Rev 22:5 is a description of the new heavens and a new earth. That is the old earth has been cleansed and replaced by a new earth. Further, it also describes condition INSIDE the new Jerusalem, the City of God, not the ...

Yes. You are taking descriptions from two completely different ages. Revelation 22 is after this … REV 21:1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. Where as your Genesis 8 description relates to … ”the first heaven and the first earth” … which in Revelation 22 … “had passed ...

Seeing to the other comments, I couldn't help myself, and decided it was necessary to write a detailed response to these claims. (1) Modern English speakers would naturally read the verse as indicating two individuals named Yahveh . . . [but] the way they wrote and understood Hebrew may have been different than the way we do today. (link) and (2) The ...

This is by no means an exhaustive list of scenarios where Scripture holds true, but there are many scenarios where if we assume the ark was exactly 45ft feet and the giraffes were 18ft, we can still cram them in. Case 1 The giraffes live in the transition space such as: the ladder shaft the sloped ramps between decks the pulley room (retro elevator shaft) ...

I would say it's because the term "angels" does not always refer to Holy or "Good" spiritual beings. Also there are specific scriptures that reference spiritual angels leaving their heavenly domain and doing evil things God had not ordained them to do. These beings essentially then became what we would call "fallen angels" or &...

Jehovah alone is the Almighty God and Creator. In regards to the promise made to Abraham in Genesis22:15-18 15 And the angel of the Lord called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time, 16 And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the Lord, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son: 17 That in blessing I will bless ...

When Jacob first met Rachel in Genesis 29: 18 Jacob was in love with Rachel and said, “I’ll work for you [Laban] seven years in return for your younger daughter Rachel.” Laban deceived Jacob at his wedding feast by giving Leah to him as his first wife in Genesis 29: 27 Finish this daughter’s [Leah] bridal week; then we will give you the younger one [...

First, what "the image of God" means in Genesis 1:26 - The Bible states that God made mankind in his image (Genesis 1:26-30). No other creation of his was so made. It is not said of any of the animals, birds or fish that God created. It is not said of angels that were created. It is not said of the Son of God who was never created. So, what does it ...

What Jesus said here seems to indicate that the angels don't have the capacity to reproduce. For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven. (Matt. 22:30, ESV) For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven. (Mark 12:25, ESV) The sons of ...

This is a question skeptics like to ask, but they usually do not consider that the very mountains by which they try to estimate the height of the waters were pushed up to such lofty altitudes by the techtonic plate movements that continued after the Flood. When the Flood occurred, Mt. Everest was not yet a mountain. The Biblical evidence of the techtonic ...

Your analysis is reasoned out. However, you need to consider scripture, not just reasoning… GEN 7:11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep burst forth, and the windows of the heavens were opened. This verse even in a simple reading reflects that at ...

Two things occurred after the flood: Gen 9:2 - The fear and dread of you will fall on every living creature on the earth, every bird of the air, every creature that crawls on the ground, and all the fish of the sea. Gen 9:3, 4 - Everything that lives and moves will be food for you; just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you all things. But you ...

Why do you suppose that any of the animals were full grown adults? Would it not be far better to take onto the ark creatures whose full adult life is still ahead of them? Younger animals would need less food and drink and be better able to fill the earth with offspring after the Flood.

LXX Genesis 15:1b: LXX has a verb-to-be έσται added in it. The verb-to-be (copula) is not in the original Hebrew. Brenton Septuagint Translation Genesis 15:1 And after these things the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram, I shield thee, thy reward shall be very great. New International Version does not add the copula: ...

And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. (Genesis 6:6, KJV) וַיִּנָּ֣חֶם יְהוָ֔ה כִּֽי־עָשָׂ֥ה אֶת־הָֽאָדָ֖ם בָּאָ֑רֶץ וַיִּתְעַצֵּ֖ב אֶל־לִבֹּֽו׃ (TR) This Hebrew word וַיִּנָּ֣חֶם (way·yin·nā·ḥem / H5162) is a difficult one to properly translate. It is in the Hebrew Niphal/Nifal form, which happens to ...

The number seven occurs 39 times in Genesis and is a running theme in the story of Noah. Genesis 7: 1The Lord then said to Noah, “Go into the ark, you and your whole family, because I have found you righteous in this generation. 2Take with you seven pairs of every kind of clean animal, a male and its mate, and one pair of every kind of unclean animal, a ...

1 Corinthians 15: 39 All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. I don't think Paul meant this as describing modern scientific biological taxonomy. Genesis 6: 12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon ...

“Could Genesis 6:12 be referring to a dramatic physical/biological change, violating God's 4 categories? Perhaps mixing or altering the physical traits of creation?” You ask an intriguing question. One that is difficult to verify scripturally. The reason it is difficult is because of the traditional interpretation of this period of time. Genesis 6:4 talks ...

Genesis 6 3 And the Lord said: My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. 7 And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. 11 ...

The number Six hundred, sixty, six, or 666 is one of the most intriguing numbers in the Bible because it supposedly holds the key to the identity of one of the most fearfully anticipated villains in human history. Theologians, futurologists, and many brilliant minds over the centuries have endeavored to crack the code of the number. Some Kabbalists have ...

There are many "6" numbers associated with mankind in the Bible. Sixth day of creation week Six days of the week belong to man (the seventh is the Lord's day) Six commandments of the Ten relate to dealings with mankind From biology, we might add a couple more. We have six primary senses (yes, six--most biologists miss one): sight, hearing, smell,...

New International Version Genesis 3: 17 To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’ “Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat food from it all the days of your life. This was a general curse on the ground. Adam himself was not the ...

We have very little in terms of records concerning pre-Flood conditions, and the little that we have was all written well after the Flood, largely by Moses. The only other pre-Flood evidences we have come to us via archeology and the fossil record. The Bible indicates, however, that God or His agents led a selection of animals to the ark. There went in two ...

Were animals not afraid of people before the flood? No, the Insight on the Scriptures offers two points to establish this. Under the topic "Animals", we see the following: Animals were so created that they would have a fear and dread of man as their superior. (Ge 9:2, 3) According to naturalists, wild creatures, such as the leopard and the king ...

English Standard Version Genesis 1: 28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” The relationship between humans and animals seemed to be friendlier at this stage, ...

New American Standard Bible Genesis 1: 26 Then God said, “Let Us make mankind in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the livestock and over all the earth, and over every crawling thing that crawls on the earth.” 27So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He ...

It appears that we need the trio of Christian virtues: 1 Cor 13:13 - And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love; but the greatest of these is love. These same three essential virtues are repeated elsewhere as well: Col 1:5 - the faith and love proceeding from the hope stored up for you in heaven, of which you have already heard in the word of truth,...

Genesis 8:22 vs Revelation 22:5 How do we interpret Genesis 8:22 with Revelation 22:5? Does Genesis 8:22 only apply to the old created order by contrast to the New Heavens & New Earth? Gen 8:22 - As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night shall never cease.” Verse Gen. 8:22 States that the ...

In Gen. 1, we learn that Elohim calls the firmament between the separated waters "Heaven"; and the dry land that Elohim made to appear Elohim called "Earth". So, Elohim doesn't need to replace the stars and other planets. Elohim just needs to rearrange the water. Elohim will do so with a huge fire while those who are alive and remain ...
