Wicked Giants Rebelling Against God Almighty-www.imust.cn

UnCategorized My journey throughout the Bible has been spiritually rich and very rewarding when it comes to being able to tap into the vastness of God’s wisdom. To be able to see how God created everything that the eye can see and beyond, I must say was very overwhelming and yet refreshing. When I saw how God took the extra time to create the human, starting with Adam and blessed him with a companion that went by the name of Eve… reminded me of how much love and greatness the Lord has bestowed on the human race. To witness how God spared that same couple after they disobeyed the laws of perhaps the greatest stretch of land that had ever been created, which was known as the Garden of Eden. This would lead us to the first time we are able to see God’s grace and mercy when it comes to the human race. I must say, the journey I’ve traveled between the pages of this great book has been nothing short of amazing. Wait a minute… what is this? It would seem that I’m now entering into the time when mankind had totally rebelled against their Maker. But this time their rebellion would cause God to perhaps – second guess His creation? "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. The Lord saw how great man’s wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time. And it repented the Lord that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at His heart." Genesis 6:4-6 As I looked on in total dismay, all I could is wonder why and how humanity had reached such a low point; at this stage in history? "When men began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born unto them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful, and they married any of them that they chose, then the Lord said, ‘My Spirit will not contend with man forever, for he is mortal; his days will be a hundred and twenty years.’" Genesis 6: 1-3 So according to the scriptures, the sons of God had found themselves to be very attracted to the daughters of men. Now, the daughters of men were the daughters who came from the men who were considered giants in the earth. The term "giants in the earth" doesn’t mean literally that they were actually giants, as we would know of them in today’s time. This simply meant that these giants were a term that people used back during those times, in reference to men of power and influence who held the positions of high stature. The son’s of God had decided to marry and raise families with the daughters of these powerful men. This would be a huge mistake on their part, being that these powerful and wealthy men also practiced in the ways of the world. This meant that they would use their positions, money and power to oppress tyrannize and influence others to follow behind them and to do the same. Understand, that before the son’s of God had decided to marry into the families of these powerful men, they had followed the ways of the Lord. But now that they are no longer set apart, they would soon find that they too, had been influenced and lead astray by their new powerful and wealthy father-in-laws. We would later learn, that soon after — and with now clear indicator of what was now considered acceptable and unacceptable by the Lord – mankind would eventually fall into a state of corruption and wickedness. The human race had become so corrupt that the thoughts of men had become a continuous evil, and their thoughts and minds were constantly focused on things of a wicked nature. Now we find that the human race was on a path that was driving them further away from the ways of the Lord, and closer towards a total abyss of pain, affliction and wickedness. This is not what God wanted for the crown jewel of His creation, and He was grieved by the way that mankind had chosen to go. God’s love is so strong for the human race, that He decided that He would not stand by and allow mankind to destroy themselves; and now He was going to do something about it: "And the Lord said, ‘I will wipe mankind, whom I have created, from the face of the earth – men and animals, and creatures that move along the ground, and birds of the air for I am grieved that I have made them.’" Genesis 6:7 This would start the one hundred and twenty year count down, and after that time expires — the Lord announced that He will wipe away the filth of the human race and undo all that man had done. Wow, what a powerful scene that I’ve just witness. I wonder who will God chose to save the human race through now? I’ll write to you all later, I need to stay close and continue to track God through this awesome period that I’m now exploring. Although this historic account is sad during this stage of humanity, I’m still excited to be able to see how God moved. I’ll let you all know where I’m tracking Him to next. In the meantime, take care and may God be a blessing to you all. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
