How can we know anything about anything? That's the real question

 Where did all the people in the land of Nod come from?



If you have not read Stories Versus Truth, you may want to read that before reading this.

Someone may ask you the following: "Where did all the people in the land of Nod come from?"

This question is connected to a whole bunch of questions that could be asked if we were to assume several things about the following verse:

"And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden. And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bore Enoch: and he built a city, and he called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch."

These assumptions are based in ignorance and a desire to see something in the text that is not there.

Assumption #1: There were people in the land of Nod.  (The Bible does not say that there are people there.)
Assumption #2: Cain got a wife from the land of Nod.  (The Bible does not say that he did get his wife from the land of Nod.)
Assumption #3: The city is translated correctly.  (In the original Hebrew before translation the literal meaning is, "encampment.")
Assumption #4: The period between the birth of Cain and the death of Able was less than 130 years.  (The likelyhood is that there would have been many generations of people at that time, and given their superior intellect and physical ability, families would have been large since God had commanded them to fill the earth.)

From these assumptions mixed with a little ignorance, some people try to manufacture a conflict between the history in the Bible and what could have been possible.  Of course, since their thinking is all fabrication, their argument falls flat.

We were always right to believe what God has told us.  The Bible is His Utterance and He speaks to us through it.

There is so much more for you. This is what you have been missing. Don't let anyone deceptively keep you from fulfilling your destiny and God's purpose for your life.

God has established the pattern of Scripture, for life and for the Church.

You can feel free to use the Contact Form further down on this page to ask any question regarding this pattern of Scripture. The Church, the Body of Christ, and discernment of this Body, is the method that God is using to finish the work in His Body. The Body of Christ, God's Temple, is built up by that which every joint supplies, building each other up in love, and the Temple must be built according to the pattern of Scripture.



We believe the Holy Scriptures teach:
  • The 5 apostolic ministries (Ephesians 4:11)
  • The nine gifts of the Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:8-10)
  • Local congregations overseen by elders and deacons (Titus 1:5)
  • Every member having and being a ministry in the Body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:11)
  • Being led by the Spirit of God (Romans 8:14)
  • The gathering together of the Body of Christ (Genesis 49:10, John 17:21)

End

If you seek God, you will find Him through His Son, Jesus.

Revelation 22:19 And if anyone takes away from the Words of the Book of this prophecy, God will take away his part out of the Book of Life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which have been written in this Book.

John 10:35b the Scripture cannot be broken,

Human theology and reasoning is not necessarily correct, but the Bible is without error. The Bible can only be understood by revelation, and revelation is given by the Spirit of God. God does reveal in His own way. But we only know in part. If we think we know any thing, we do not know it as we ought. We are instructed, by God, to keep seeking Him. The Holy Spirit will lead us into all truth. The truth sets us free. Lies bind us. Whoever seeks Jesus does find Him. Jesus is the truth.
