32. Genesis 5:3 And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, after his image; and called his name Seth: The image was lost to Adamkind sin was passed on by Adam’s seed so every one born was born a sinner Total depraved and no long the Adam God had breathed life into. Those born of man were born in the likeness and the image of Adam not in the image of God. See Custance A. Man in Adam and in Christ Zondervan Publishing House 1975 Grand Rapids Mi.

34. Romans 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

35. 1 John 3:10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.  Matthew 13:38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;

36. Genesis 3:20 And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.

37. Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. KJV Custance, A Part VII: Light From Other Forms of Cultural Behavior on Some Incidents in Scripture Chapter 3 Illustrations from Other Cultures, In Genesis 3:15 the promise is given to Eve that one who should be her seed would finally undo the works of Satan. In the circumstances, it was very natural for Eve to suppose that this Promised Seed would appear at once; and there is some evidence that she supposed this to have happened when her first child was born. This event is recorded in Genesis 4:1 and 2, and the Hebrew of the original is in some respects a little odd. Our text reads: "And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord. And she again bare his brother Abel." In the original, Eve's statement "I have gotten a man from the Lord," may be translated in several different ways. She may have said, "I have gotten a man with the Lord," i.e., with the help of the Lord perhaps. But she may also have said, "I have gotten a man, even the Lord." In any case, the word "Lord" is "Jehovah" in the Hebrew, a circumstance to which we shall return in a moment. The phrase "And she again bare his brother Abel" is also a little strange. It could possibly be rendered, "And she bare also (at the same time) his brother Abel." This would be a birth of twins. The only justification for this translation lies in the fact that the adverb "again" is a verb in the original which means essentially "to do at the same time," or "to repeat."

38. Genesis 4:1 And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord. Gill, John Exposition of the Entire Bible Genesis 4:1 I have gotten a man from the Lord; as a gift and blessing from him, as children are; or by him, by his favour and good will; and through his blessing upon her, causing her to conceive and bear and bring forth a son: some render it, "I have gotten a man, the Lord" {x}; that promised seed that should break the serpents head; by which it would appear, that she took that seed to be a divine person, the true God, even Jehovah, that should become man; though she must have been ignorant of the mystery of his incarnation, or of his taking flesh of a virgin, since she conceived and bare Cain through her husband's knowledge of her: however, having imbibed this notion, it is no wonder she should call him Cain, a possession or inheritance; since had this been the case, she had got a goodly one indeed: but in this she was sadly mistaken, he proved not only to be a mere man, but to be a very bad man: the Targum of Jonathan favours this sense, rendering the words, "I have gotten a man, the angel of the Lord.''

39. 1 John 3:12.  Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous.

40. Many are of the opinion that this could not be angel since “Angels either good or bad, as many have thought, since they are incorporeal beings,’ but is this so. Angel have been said to have visited Abram at Sodom and Gomorrah. In the NT we are reminded “Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.” Hebrews 13.2 So angels have and can take on human form. Ben Adam has a book call “The Origin of Heathendom”Bethany Fellowship Minneapolis Minnesota 1963 in which he methodically shows the traditional way of  interpreting this passage. Chapter IV “The Sons of God in Genesis”

41. Genesis 6:5.  And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

42. Genesis 6:17 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.

43. The new dispensation begins after the Flood (Genesis 9) it is here that God sets forth man's new responsibilities. First notice the simple command to be fruitful and replenish the earth. The Hebrew word translated replenish literally means to fill. Hence God's first command was to multiply and spread abroad so as to populate the whole earth. The second command involves the most sacred of all responsibilities, the right and duty to avenge human life. This is commonly called capital punishment and is set forth in Genesis 9:5-6. Notice God says in verse five, I will require (i.e., man's blood), and in verse six, Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed.

The habitation of this mysterious thing called life is given: The life of the flesh is in the blood. If human lifeblood is sacred and not to be shed, then animal lifeblood is to be held in reverence and not be eaten (Genesis 9:4). At this time, God gives His sanction to the eating of meat (Genesis 9:3). It should be noted, in passing, that partaking of animal blood is not approved by the Law given by Moses (Leviticus 3).

45. Genesis 10:9.  He was a mighty hunter before the Lord: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the Lord.

46. Genesis 10:10.  And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.

47. Genesis 11:9.  Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth. God’s Plan of the Ages Step 2  Source of Light Ministries, International Page 16. ‘Some have taught that men were attempting to get to heaven via this tower (whose top may reach unto heaven), and others that men were attempting to avert another flood disaster by building such a tower. Such views seem to us a bit naive. If men wanted to escape a flood, why not a boat?  Why a tower on a flat plain? No, the answer seems to be in this: the tower was to be the universal office of the world government and (as Hislop shows in The Two Babylons) the universal religion, all in direct rebellion from God's revealed government and religion. It was, as we said earlier, simply the U.N. building at Babel.

48 Roman 4:16.  “Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all”   

49. Genesis 17:1-8 “And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect. And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly. And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying, As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee. And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee. And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee. And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.

50. Genesis 35:10-12  “And God said unto him, Thy name is Jacob: thy name shall not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name: and he called his name Israel. And God said unto him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins; And the land which I gave Abraham and Isaac, to thee I will give it, and to thy seed after thee will I give the land.”
