Top 100 Questions 21-30

Question: If you are not a denominational church what teachings do you follow?

We follow the teachings of Christ. Being a non-denominational independent church, we are not bound by traditions of men and church doctrine. All of our teachings come from the Word of God in the original "King James" bible and the bible only. We use the Greek and Hebrew manuscripts to confirm our teachings and give us a deeper meaning of the truth.

Question: What verse says that God is the Word?

You will find that the Word and God are the same in the book of John. (John 1:1). In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Question: Was the old law and ordinances done away with in the new testament?

The ordinances and blood rituals were nailed to the cross with the crucifixion of Christ so that we are no longer under them. Christ became the sacrificial lamb for all our sins upon repentance. But, the old law of the ten commandments still stands. Christ did not come to destroy the law, but to fulfill the law. (Colossians 2:14). Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross. (Matthew 5:17-18). Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled.

Question: Who has the Key of David? Is it Jesus? What is the Key?

You are on the right track. The Key of David opens up the genealogy line as well as the Levitical and King-ship of Melchizedek, (a Priest-King of Jerusalem) who is our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We have a study topic titled "The Key of David" that should help you.

Question: Was it ever stated whether James was the actual brother of Jesus or Joseph's son from a previous marriage? I once read that brother was used for cousins. Also, (this is a big topic jump) but was there a white race created on the sixth day? I know about "et-ahadam" (the man Adam that translated means to show color i.e. white), I am just a little confused.

For your answer on James, check out appendix #182 The Lord's Brethren and this will help you. As for the second question on creation, the bible tells us that all the races were created on the sixth day. (Genesis 1:24-31). In (Genesis 2:5-7), there was not a man to till the ground, so God formed man "et-ahadam" from the dust of the ground. Keep in mind that this is a very controversial subject about the 6th day races and 8th day creation of Adam. But it would only make sense that all the races were created on the sixth day, including the white race. Appendix #14, Synonymous Words Used For Man may help you out a little.

Question: I don't understand how Cain is different from the Gibbor. Isn't Satan a fallen angel also? Why would Satan's offspring the "Kenites" be any different from the Nephilim's offspring?

Cain and Abel were twins conceived by Eve. First she conceived Cain, thinking he was from the Lord, but continued in labor and conceived Abel. (Genesis 4:1-2). Then we find out that Abel was of the Lord and the Lord respected him, but Cain was of the devil and the Lord did not respect him. Cain killing Abel made him the first murderer. Cain was banished from the presence of the Lord and dwelt in the land of Nod. The Kenites are the sons of Cain, or sons of the devil. As for the fallen angels, they left their habitation coming down to earth and physically seduced the daughters of Adam. The fallen angels refusing to be born of woman had seduced them instead. This is why their offspring produced the Gibbor or giants. Go to Appendix #20 Posterity of Cain, and Appendix #25 The Nephilim, and this should help you.

Question: I am aware of Eve's sin in the garden and the birth of Cain and his offspring the Kenites. What was Adam's sin in the garden?

Lets start with what had happened to Eve by Satan. It is believed by many scholars that Eve was sexually seduced by Satan. Now lets go over a few words in Genesis 3. Take the word "touch" in Genesis 3:3 back to the Hebrew. Strong's #5060 (lay hands upon or to lie with a woman). Now take the word "good" in Genesis 3:6, Strong's #2896 (pleasant, + pleaseth, pleasure). Now the word "desired" Strong's #2530 (covet, delight, desire, lust). Finally lets take the word "beguiled" in Genesis 3:13, Strong's #5377 (to delude, "morally" seduced). Paul would also use the word "beguiled" in 2 Corinthians 11:3, Strong's 1818 (Exapatao), to seduce wholly. Eve was "wholly seduced" by Satan; that was her sin. Adam also partook in the same act and was seduced by Satan; that was his sin. They were both seduced by Satan, and that was the reason they were naked and ashamed. Remember that Satan is supernatural, and may be able to appear in many different forms.

Question: What verse in the bible says we bring nothing into this world and we will bring nothing out of this world when we die?

You will find the verse in 1 Timothy 6:7. However, the only thing that goes with you when you die is your works. (Revelation 14:13).

Question: Is the famine in the end time for food or God's Word?

The famine in the end time is for hearing the "truth" in God's Word. The reason I emphasize "truth" is that there is a lot of false teachings that many believe is God's Word. Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD. (Amos 8:11).

Question: Where does it say that when we die we return to God?

Our soul and spirit return to God, the body returns to dust. (2 Corinthians 5:8), We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. (Ecclesiastes 12:7), Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.
