The Book of Life and seed of
Those will worship the antichrist «whose names are not written in the book of life» (Rev.13:8). Thus, all of those, whose names are written in the Book of life, will receive the Seal of God.
When the 7th seal will be removed from the Book of Life their names will be revealed to angels. Angels will be sent to all the sealed people: “There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways” (Ps.91:10-11). They will have a God's protection from all disasters: «and there shall be a time of trouble ...and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book» (Dan.12:1). Then they will live forever on the new earth: «And there shall in no wise enter into it (in New Jerusalem) ... but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life» (Rev.21:27). Therefore all people who will be sealed by God with Holy Spirit and belief of the truth would be the saved: saints and righteous, whose names are written in the Book of Life «from the foundation of the world» (Rev.17:8).
«God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation» (2Thes.2:13; 2Тim. 1:9,10)
«he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world» (Eph,1:4)
«For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son...Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.» (Rom 8:29-30).
From the beginning of the world the saved people already belong to God:
«thine they were, and thou gavest them me» (John 17:6,2,9);
«No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him» (John 6:44);
«As thou hast given him (to Jesus)... he should give eternal life» (John 17:2).
Luke said that names of apostles' co-workers already in the Book of life:
«Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven» (Luke10:20; Philip.4:3).
Thus, from the
beginning of the world all the names of the saved already are in the
Book of Life. Bible says that some names can be taken out of the Book,
but there is no place in the Bible where it's said that some names will
be included in the Book:
«And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this
prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life»
says, that there are only names of the saved in the Book of life
(Rev.3:5; Rev.13:8; Rev.17:8; Rev.20:15; Rev.21:27; Luke.10:20;
Phil.4:3) and probably their life span: «in
thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were
fashioned, when as yet there was none of them» (Ps.139:16).
Deeds of people are written in other books:
Everything what a person does: good and bad, wasn't written down into the Book from the creation of the world, but it's recording during his life time: «a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name» (Mal. 3:16); «You… record my wanderings (i.e. they were recorded after they had place)... are they not in thy book?» (Ps.56:8, AMP).
What that means? Why those people will worship the beast «whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world» (Rev.17:8)? That means that even names of some newborn babes, who didn't even have a chance to do good or bad, will be not in there, therefore they will not be saved, because «whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire» (Rev.20:15).
Why in the Ezekiel's vision when those who worshiped the only true God had received the seal of God (9:4), rest of the people, including babes (9:6), were killed? The babes couldn't make a decision to whom they have to serve.
2) a name can be blotted out of the book of life only if a person will choose to follow a sin;
3) names of those who will not be saved never were written down into the Book.
given statement is leading many to the wrong conclusion: that God is
controlling people lives by allowing to someone to be righteous and
preventing others from being such. If this conclusion would be correct,
what would stop God to write down into the Book all names of the saved
without taking names of some sinners out the Book later?
the same reason Noah for the sin committed against him by Canaan, had
cursed not only Canaan but all his descendants as well (9:26). Why such
a righteous and God-fearing Noah cursed his grandchildren, whom for 350
years of his life after the Flood he had seen in multitude?
Why while expelling many peoples from the promised land God commanded to Jews to kill every person, including babes (Deu.2:34; 3:3; 20:16,17; 1Sam.15:3; Ex.17:14), only who belonged to tribes of the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Hivites, the Girgashites, the Jebusites (Deu. 7:1)? If the reason for an elimination of those tribes was an idolatry, how would babes and little children teach Israel nation to idolatry?
Why did God severely act upon the cities of Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboim (Deu.29:23), literally wiping them out of the face of the earth? There also were little innocent children. Why for the same sin the tribe of Benjamin was not exterminated (Judg.ch.19-21)?
Is it a
coincidence that all of those tribes which God commended completely
eliminate, were descendants of Canaan (all tribes of Canaanites), or
descendants of his sons (Gen.10:15,17)?
Is it a coincidence that all those turned to ashes cities were
cities of Canaan (Deu.10:19)? Why while prophesying about a feast on the
new earth Zechariah said, that «in that day
there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of
hosts» (Zech.14:21)? Why all descendants of Canaan were so
severely punished when we do not even know what sin did Canaan commit?
Many Christian churches teach that in Gen.6:2 «That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose» it's talking about marriages between fallen angels and earthly women. Jude (6) told about them: «And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation (i.е. they left heaven and descended on the earth) , he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day».
Some people teach that in Gen.6:2 it's told about marriages of sons of Seth with daughters of Cain, and sons of Seth were called the sons of God. They are making this conclusion by basing on a single verse which we will analyze shortly. Even if we will imagine that they are right, how then can we answer the given above questions? What was the reason of total elimination of descendants of Canaan? Why their names were not written down in the Book of life from the beginning of the world (Remember? No a Canaanite will be in the temple on the new earth ...)? Why all of them will accept the antichrist?
Now, lets see what facts of the Bible will help us to understand the given dilemma.
First, in order for Cain's daughters turn Seth's sons away from God, they had to worship other gods, different from God, who Seth's sons had worshiped. However Bible doesn't tell that people of Cain's line at that time had worshiped other gods.
Second, if Seth's sons were so innocent they called sons of God, why there was only one righteous man -Noah- before the Flood? As we know, from creation of Adam to the Flood - 1656 years. God appealed to Noah as the only righteous man on the earth 100 years before the Flood. When Adam was 130 years of age he begat Seth. Seth begat Enos at 105. Enos had married about in the age of 90, that means that from marriage age of Seth’ sons until the Flood (1656-100-130-105-90=1231) is less than 1230 years. It is less than 1,5 lifetimes (if 900 years was an average lifetime for that time). That means that at the time of the Flood sons of Enos were still alive! If Bible called them «blameless and harmless, the sons of God» (Philip. 2:15) , how could that happened that in the end of their lives they all became so sinful, God decided to kill them all by waters of the Flood?
Third, there no
place in the Bible where it is said, that «the
daughters of men» were women of Gentile tribes. On another
hand Bible is talking about the sons of men (Eccl.1:13; 3:10;3:18; 9:3;
Dan. 5:21; Ps.115:16), and it is mean not «sons of gentiles», but just
«people». Jesus also called Himself Son of man.
Forth, there is no place in the Bible where it's said that son's of Seth were the sons of God. As you remember, sons of Jacob (Israel) God called His firstborn from the human world (Ex.4:22). The firstborn - means that no one tribe, which was before Jacob, was called the sons of God.
Fifth: there in Old Testament 5 times not people, but angels were called the sons of God:
«Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them» (Job 1:6; 2:1);
«when I laid the foundations of the earth....all the sons of God shouted for joy» (Job 38:4,7);
«I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God” (Dan.3:25);
«For who in the heaven can be compared unto the LORD? who among the sons of the Mighty can be likened unto the LORD? God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints» (Ps 89:6,7);
«God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the
gods...I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most
High. But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes»
despite of all Bible reasoning some people still insistent the sons of
God were sons of Seth and they offer a following saying of Jesus as the
proof of their point. When Pharisees asked Jesus: «thou,
being a man, makest thyself God. Jesus answered them, Is it not written
in your law, I said, Ye are gods? If he called them gods, unto whom the
word of God came...Say ye of him, whom the Father hath .. sent into the
world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?»
New Testament tells that through faith in Jesus a man can reach a spiritual perfection and become a child of God (John 1:12,13; Rom.8:14;Philip. 2:15). «they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead... Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection» (Luke 20:35,36). Thus, in our earthly life a man prepare himself to be a son of God and after the resurrection he will become a real son of God as angels, who can see their Father.
Those who can’t
accept the idea that angels could have their offspring say that angels
wouldn’t able to marry. They show the next verse: «For
in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but
are as the angels of God in heaven» (Mat.22:30, Mark 12:25).
It's necessary to mention that only in the beginning of the V-th century the catholic priest Aurelius Augustinus of Hippo (North Africa) introduced the idea about sons of God as the sons of Seth. Until V-th century most people believed in the mixed marriages between angels and women.
Josephus Flavius (Ist
century) in his famous book, "Antiquities of the Jews,"
revealed his acquaintance with the tradition of the fallen angels
consorting with women of Earth. He told us how the children of such
union possessed super human strength, and were known for their extreme
wickedness. (Josephus, The Work of Flavius Josephus; Antiquities of the
Jews (London: G. G. Rutledge), 1.3.1.)*.
And apostles believed in such unions also. Thus, Paul taught women to be modest and cover their hair in order do not tempt angels: «For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels» (1Cor.11:10). Jude quoted Enoch (Jude 14,15), whose book describes sins of fallen angels before the Flood. Peter (1Pet.3:19,20; 2Pet.2:4,5) emphasized that angels who sinned before the Flood are in the prison until the day of judgment. We know that rest of the angels who followed Satan were in heaven until the heavenly war, that is why the sin of the first fallen angels was different from their sins and was much more heavier.
Bible says (Gen.6:4): «There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown». Hence, at first there were giants on the earth, but they multiplied when women began to bore children to the angels. And children grow up into giant people. Here is clearly spoken about genetic intervention. There can not be any other explanation: from the union daughters of Cain and sons of Seth the giants could not be born.
What about giants which existed before such unions? The world mythology tells that at first there strange huge beings were on the earth, who were half humans and half animals, and people giants had appeared later.
very clear to track what had happened on the earth at that time. There
in Greece giant half-man half-animal received the name
"titans". They were the first generation of the gods –
results of genetic experimentations of fallen angels with genes of
animals. The second generation was humanlike gods (Olympic god in
Greece) – angel-human hybrids. Then there were secondary gods-heroes,
who were born from unions of gods with people. Myths told that titans
had children from people also. And if we will reject myths together with
evolution how else we can explain such phenomenon as atavism, when some
people are born with some animal attributes, such as horns, fangs,
tail, fur and ctr. Everyone knows that human genes
cannot mix with genes of animals. So where is that coming from?
Further in the Bible we again will see giants - Reubenites, Raphaites (for ex.- Deu. 2:11,20; 3:11, 9:2), who God commanded to kill all also. What they did wrong? They just were not people, they were some another kind humanlike beings, who had genes different from those God gave His creatures. They were hybrids.
It is possible that the reason why Noah had cursed Canaan so fast and surely was that Canaan had some external characteristics of hybrids, i.e. he was a giant or something else.
Bible says that Jews became God chosen people not by an accident: «Behold, the heaven ... is the LORD's thy God, the earth also, with all that therein is; Only the LORD had a delight in thy fathers to love them, and he chose their seed after them» (Deu.10:15). Why God did choose only Abraham -Issac - Jacob bloodline out of all nations? Because their genealogy comes up to the son of Noah - Sem (not to Ham) (Luke 3:38-34). Why God had chosen Noah before the Flood? Because his genealogy comes up to the son of Adam - Seth (no to Cain).
They were the holy seed on the planet earth (Isa. 6:13), pure from all alien genes. Later the holy seed had mixed with other nations (Ezra 9:2), and today, probably, in all of us there is a some part of genes of the fallen angels.
For many believers to accept the point that God was the killer of the babes is easier than the point that there are some people on the earth who are not completely humans. «What are you talking about?»- they are asking with an anger,- «God loves all people. God can not hate. The sun is shining by His will on all people. For Him all people are equal». Is that true? God loves those who are killing and torturing other people for a pleasure? Those who know about God but are destroying lives of others?
said: «I loved Jacob, and I hated Esau»
The reason is in
misunderstanding of Jesus' teaching about enemies. Jesus taught: «love
your enemies» (Mat.5:44).
However apostles taught: «A man that is an
heretic after the first and second admonition reject»
Like Most High out of mercy is pouring a rain on a field of a wicked one and on a field of a righteous, the same Jesus spoke about, He spoke about love-mercy to your enemies, love-compassion and charity as to all living creatures: «If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink: For thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and the LORD shall reward thee» (Prov.25:21,22, 24:17,29).
«Bible says that everyone is equal for Jesus!» - Adventists tell and quoting next verses: «Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference» (Rome 3:22-24); «Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one (i.e. through the faith in Jesus) the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life» (Rome 5:18). Is there spoken about all people or about all believers? All the Epistle to the Romans was addressed to the Roman Jews, and there Paul was explaining, that Jews and Gentiles are equal in Jesus. “All” here is – all the believers, not all people in general. Who said that people who have many alien genes really can believe in Jesus?
Bible says that Canaan's descendants (Rephaites. The right translation is Rephaims - see AMP Deu.3:11) will not be resurrected like all mortals will: "They are dead, they shall not live; they are deceased, they shall not rise"(Isa.26:14). The original Hebrew word which was translated "deceased" was the word "Rephaim". The verse actually reads: "Dead, they shall not live; Rephaim, they shall not rise" (see http://www.scripture4all.org/OnlineInterlinear/OTpdf/isa26.pdf ).
are not written in the Book of life and all of them will be eliminated
as worthless tares in the day of harvesting. As tares were left until
the harvesting by mercy of the owner (Mat.13:24-30), so and all the
wicked were left on the earth by God's grace until the end of the world,
in order all angels to see what kind of fruits they will produce.
we see Bible clearly tells about the generation of the wicked and
generation of God, about sons of God and sons of Satan (John.8:44),
cursed children (2Pet.2:14), the children of disobedience (Col. 3:6).
John had explained: «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.» (1John 3:10). Jesus called Pharisees sons of a devil (John 8:44), because "They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him" (Titus 1:16). They didn't have love for truth, nor mercy to a neighbor and without love there is no faith. That is why the verse (Rome 5:18; 3:22-24) «Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one ( i.e. through the faith in Jesus) the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life» can not be applied to all people, but to only sincere believers, which Satanic generation just can not be.
our time there are many priests who speak about God, have followers,
but they do not have love, mercy and sincere faith, because the
given qualities were swept off their genetic matrix when genes of
the fallen angels were added into genetic pool of the humanity. Today
such people have a medical diagnosis – sociopath – people without a
conscience, who are unable to love and forgive. To reveal a sociopath it
is very difficult like it’s difficult to separate tares from wheat
while they haven’t ripe yet.
descendants of Canaan were Kenites. Prophet Balaam called Kenites - Cain
(Num.24:21,22). That can be meant that the nephilim, who was the real
father of Canaan, had Cain’s genes. And those genes were transferred
to Canaan’s offsprings.
Cain a son of the perfect man - Adam or he was son of Satan?
- Because Cain was not a son of man: «Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother» (1John 3:12). Satan had seduced Eve and Cain was his son: «And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression» (1Tim.2:14). Paul said (2Cor.11:2,3): "I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ." "A chaste virgin" - means: a young woman who didn't have a sexual relationship. And if Eve was a chaste virgin until the moment when "the serpent beguiled Eve", that means the first human sin was not the eating of the forbidden fruit (ch.29). Later the angels had followed example of Satan. In order to conquer the world they needed their own descendants.
Cain was not the son of Adam, therefore despite of Hebrew tradition to place under a name of a father a name of his oldest son, who had some offspring, there in Adam's genealogy Cain's name wasn't even mention (Gen.5:1-3). Cain’s genealogy (Gen.4:17-22) is given separately from genealogy of Adam. As you remember from proverb about tares, Jesus let tares, i.e. sons of Satan and fallen angels, grow together with wheat, i.e. with sons of God, until the day of judgment. That is why God sealed Cain in order to save his offspring until the Judgment day. In the blood of Ham's wife He saved Satan's seed.
Thence, God had written down into the Book of life names of all people ever born on the planet earth. The names can be taken out of the Book only because of sins of the people. The names of people of hybrid origin God couldn't place in the Book, because He did not create them as Adam and his children were created. On the new earth there will be only people who have love and mercy, the people of hybrid origin cannot have that.
Those people do not believe in God and have no interest in the Bible. And if you are reading this chapter, your name is written down into the Book.---------------------------------
