No. All races were created on the sixth day as we read in Genesis 1:26-27. Adam and Eve were not created until the eighth day (Genesis 2). This is one of the biggest misinterpreted topics throughout the entire Bible because many so called "teachers" will have you believe that all people came from Adam and Eve and that Adam and Eve were the first people alive, which is not true at all. This is why it is extremely important to understand the beginning because if you cannot understand the beginning, how can you understand the rest of our Father's Word? For more information, please visit are new in-depth, Bible Study "Did we all come from Adam and Eve".
Why is Eve called the mother of all living if she was not the first woman?
Eve is called the mother of all living because it was through her offspring that Christ would be born in years to come and we can only have eternal life through Him (John 3:16); to all who believe and trust in Him. Not because we are all decedents of Adam and Eve.
What was the sin in the Garden of Eden?
One of the most well known stories is the Garden of Eden. What many people don't know, is what really happened. Growing up, many children are taught that Eve ate an apple, but what they don't know is that apples have nothing to do with the sin committed at all nor any fruit in which we think of today. Find out what really happened in the Garden of Eden in are new in-depth, Bible Study "What was the sin committed in the Garden of Eden?".
Where did Cain get his wife from?
Cain's wife came from the 6th day creation. Genesis 4 describes where Cain dwelt (Nod). For more information about the 6th day creation, please visit are new in-depth Bible Study, "Did We All Come From Adam and Eve". As we see in Genesis 1:27 (All races were created) (Mankind) (plural). But in Genesis 2:7 (the 8th day creation), we see that God formed man from the dust (Eth-Ha-Adam) (the special man) (Adam).
Was Cain Adam's son?
No. Cain was the son of Satan, while Abel (Cain's brother) was the son of Adam. Both were brothers but they were fraternal twins which means they had different fathers. Also Cain is not even mentioned in Adam's genealogy (Genesis 5), instead Cain's genealogy is mentioned in Genesis 4. For more information about this question, please read are new in-depth Bible Study "What was the sin committed in the Garden of Eden?".
Was JESUS CHRIST born on December 25th?
December 25th is a day that many people get confused about. December 25th was actually the conception of JESUS CHRIST, not His birth. So should CHRISTians still celebrate CHRISTmas? Absolutely because it is the day in which CHRIST began to dwell with mankind. So if CHRIST was not born on December 25th, when is His birthday? 15th Tisri which is the Jewish calendar for September 29th. So happy birthday JESUS. :) In-depth Bible Study coming soon.
Is there going to be a rapture?
Absolutely not. JESUS will return on the 7th trump but before He returns, Satan will come back on the 6th trump, claiming to be JESUS. So do not be deceived. Satan will come back peacefully. So how do we know when the true CHRIST returns? We will automatically be transformed into our spiritual bodies but until then, CHRIST has not yet returned. For more information, please read are new in-depth Bible Study "Is there going to be a rapture". We all will gather back with CHRIST one day, but just remember, there is no rapture. The rapture is a lie from Satan. DO NOT be deceived.
Do pets go to heaven?
Absolutely. :) GOD loves His animals that He created. Isaiah 11 even goes into further detail about how there are no carnivores in heaven. It talks about how animals will get along. So for example, a lion, bear, snake, etc. will not have the desire to bite or kill other animals, instead they will get along.
What is the mark of the beast?
The mark of the beast is not a microchip or a tattoo on your skin as many might think. Instead, the mark of the beast is what is in your brain. It is nothing that you can see. Do not let anyone deceive you. Do you love the Lord or do you love satan? That's what the mark of the beast is. Are you one of GOD's people or satan's people? Those who are not living for JESUS, already have the mark of the beast. They must turn away from their wicked ways, if they want to receive the FREE gift of eternal life.
Does everyone go to heaven?
Everyone* goes to heaven when they die in the flesh; the good and the bad. The moment we die in the flesh, we are automatically transformed into our spiritual bodies and our soul returns to almighty GOD (Ecclesiastes 12:6-7). JESUS made it very clear that even the wicked will return instantly back to heaven when they die in their flesh bodies but there is a gulf in the middle, that separates the good from the bad. For all are going to be judged after the millennium and who is going to judge them? GOD is. Face to face in heaven. Some are going to be judged straight to hell though. So don't think that everyone has eternal life. Everyone will be judged but only a few will receive eternal life. Wherever GOD is, that's heaven. If GOD comes to earth, then heaven is on earth.
Did JESUS CHRIST suffer in hell?
No. He went into the opposite side of paradise (heaven) on the other side of the gulf (the bad side) and He preached to the people. 1 Peter 3:18-19 describes this and if you continue into chapter 4, you will see that He was very successful too. A lot of people believed Him and followed Him, to the point they overcame the bad side of the gulf and moved to the other side of the gulf (the good side) in paradise (heaven). This is how the people who died before CHRIST, all the way back into Noah's days, were able to have the same opportunity as we do today, to know and accept JESUS as their Lord and Savior. Feel free to read are new In-depth Bible Study "is there going to be a rapture", for more information about this gulf in paradise (heaven).
Is it a sin to wear a cross necklace?
No because it shows that you are letting others know that you are a believer in almighty GOD. Some CHRISTians wear it because it symbolizes what JESUS did for them. He died on a cross for their sins.
Is it a sin to put up a CHRISTmas tree?
No. Many people who do consider it a sin though, like to refer to the book of Jeremiah but what they don't realize is that Jeremiah is not even talking about a CHRISTmas tree at all. The object was an idol formed by idol worshipers. So if you have ever put up a CHRISTmas tree or plan on doing one in the future, just know that it is perfectly fine to do so. After all, evergreen stands for eternal life. Read Hosea 14 for more information. GOD even describes Himself as a green fir tree. :)
Do I have to be baptized in order to spend eternity in heaven?
Baptism is not required* as we can read in Luke 23:39-43. JESUS CHRIST was being crucified in between two malefactors when one of them said "Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom." and then JESUS said "Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise." As you can see from these verses written here in Luke 23, it is not required that you have to be baptized in order to spend eternity in heaven, just as the man who said that, had never been baptized either. With that being said though, JESUS CHRIST is our ultimate example of how we are to live and because He was baptized as we can see in Mark 1, therefore we should want to follow His ways and also baptized. Now some people say "what about John 3:5 where it says " Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God."? This is a figure of speech known as Hendiadys or two for one. That means that two words are used but with only one meaning. So what this verse is talking about is Spiritual water and who is that Spiritual water? JESUS (John 4:13-14). So if we want to spend eternity in heaven, we must have the spirit of JESUS CHRIST in us (John 14:6) and how do we do that? By asking for forgiveness and accepting Him (JESUS CHRIST) into our lives and living for Him (CHRISTian). So if someone ever tells you or someone else that they cannot spend eternity in heaven without being baptized, you will know that is not true.
Is there reincarnation of the flesh body?
No. Once a person dies, they immediately are present with the Lord (2 Corinthians 5:8). They are either on the good side of the gulf in heaven or the bad side of the gulf, depending on how they have lived in their previous life. Hebrews 9:27 even says And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
Were all souls created at the same time?
GOD created all souls at the same time. If you've ever heard wisdom speaks as mentioned in Proverbs 8, then you'll know that GOD created all the sons* at the same time. That is to say GOD's children. There is no specific gender intended there. All souls were created before we were born in the flesh.
What is the Lord's Prayer?
Many people mistake Matthew 6:9-13 as the Lord's prayer, when really the Lord's prayer is John 17. Matthew 6:9-13 is just telling us how we should pray.
Are JESUS and GOD the same?
Yes. In Isaiah 7:14 it says ...a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. Immanuel means GOD with us. JESUS even said in John 14:9 ...he that hath seen me hath seen the Father... Now you want to be very careful in your beliefs, that you do not let someone talk you into having more than one GOD. That would be sacrilegious, which is a very serious thing. There is only one Father and HE is the Father of all.
How should we plant seeds?
Planting seeds is a wonderful thing, especially with so many lost people in the world and false teachings. Just remember to plant seeds gently. You can sometimes drive people away with too much information. For example, when you fish, you toss a little bait out there and jiggle it around, and then once you get a hit, that's when you sink the hook. Don't sink the hook until you get it on there though.
What is the real Sabbath?
Many people are taught that Sunday is the Sabbath. Some even Saturday but what really is the TRUE Sabbath? First of all we are not to do away with the law but instead do away with blood ordinances. 1 Corinthians 5:7-8 tells us that CHRIST became our Passover. Our Passover as CHRISTians and high Sabbath is not a specific day of the week. It is CHRIST. Sabbath means rest, and if you're not in the TRUE Sabbath which is to say CHRIST's rest (peace of mind), then you're never going to have peace of mind. Hebrews 4 makes it very clear that CHRIST became our Sabbath. You can even read Colossians 2. It tells us not to worship a day because it was nailed to the cross with CHRIST. We are children of the light, not darkness. It is one solid day all the way to the end. Worship CHRIST everyday. You can worship CHRIST on any day you choose to, but worship CHRIST everyday. HE is our TRUE Sabbath, not some day of the week.
