OLD TESTAMENT BIBE: NOTES 3

In this segment, we are going to talk about the second command that God gave to Adam and Eve after they disobeyed his first command.

  1. God told Adam and Eve that they would be forgiven for their sin if they make children and populate the Earth.
  2. Adam and Eve listened to God’s command and created their first two children named Cain and Abel.
  3. After Cain and Abel, Adam and Eve continued to make more children who then had children of their own.

Now the beginning of this story (Cain and Abel) suggests that blood relatives initially populated the world. Brothers were marrying and procreating with their sisters etc. I believe that at the time when this was happening it was safe because it was God’s will. It was the only way to populate the Earth and fulfill God’s second command.

Moving forward, the Bible suggests that Satan will murder the seed of the woman in an attempt to dominate. This tells us that evil will always exist; we will never be able to rid the entire world of evil and injustice. However, God has regenerating power. If Satan murders the first seed of a woman, then God will continue the seed with other children. This sends a positive message, and it means that good will always overcome evil.

The last thing that I want to say in this post is that I firmly believe that God takes evil and turns it into good. So that’s all for today, until next time.

OLD TESTAMENT BIBLE: NOTES 2

在本章中,我们将讨论上帝给亚当和夏娃发布的第二道指令,这发生在他们违背了第一个指令之后。

上帝告诉亚当和夏娃,只要他们肯生儿育女,繁衍生息,他们的罪孽就会得到宽恕。

亚当与夏娃听从了上帝的吩咐,生育了他们的前两个孩子,分别起名叫该隐和亚伯。

继该隐和亚伯后,亚当和夏娃又陆续生养了更多孩子。

所以这个故事最开始(该隐和亚伯)说明最初世界上的人都是血亲,兄弟娶了姐妹然后结婚生子。我相信这一切发生的时候是非常安全的,因为这是上帝的旨意,这是唯一能让地球充满生机并履行上帝的第二个旨意的办法。

接着说,圣经提到过撒旦会扼杀女人的孩子,企图以此来通知女人继而统治世界。这表示邪恶将永远存在,我们永远无法是整个世界拜托罪恶和不公。然而,神有再生的能力。若撒旦杀了一个妇女的第一个孩子,那么上帝就会赐给这个妇女第二个孩子。这意味着善也是不灭的,并总会战胜恶。

在这篇文章中我最后想说的是,我坚信上帝会化恶为善。今天就讲到这里,下次再见我的朋友们。
