Adam’s Death


Here is an interesting study regarding how long Adam lived. The Bible says in Genesis 2:17, speaking of eating from the forbidden tree of the knowledge of good and evil, “…in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” But Adam lived to be 930 years old.  Genesis 5:5 says, “And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died.”

The Bible is never in error.  Adam did die in the day he ate from the forbidden tree.
2 Peter 3:8 says, “…one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”
Adam lived 930 years, which is less than 1000 years.  930 years equals 22 hours, 19 min and 12 seconds in God’s time.
In God’s time he died at only 22 hours, 19 min and 12 seconds, which is less than a day (24 hours).

When a Christian Sins

I have a new video on YouTube title “When a Christian Sins.” Christians are perfect, but not sinless. This video is a short study on the basics of when a Christian sins.

Names of the Days

Have you noticed the Bible doesn’t use names for days? It uses phrases like “The third day of the week” or “The day following.” Have you ever wondered why? The Bible has been translated hundreds of years after the names of the days became popular, so why didn’t the translators just use Tuesday instead of “The third day of the week?” The main reason is because the manuscripts are translated exactly as they state, and they say “The third day of the week.” But another reason is that God will not honor false gods in His holy Bible, and the names of the days are based on false gods.

The Greeks named the days of the week after the gods Ares, Hermes, Zeus, Aphrodite, and Cronus. The Greeks called the days of the week the “days of the Gods”. The German peoples substituted similar gods for the Roman gods, Tiu (Twia), Woden, Thor, Freya (Fria). All languages follow the names of the false gods in naming the days. We will use the Spanish language as an example.

The word “Sunday” is based on the name of a pagan Roman holiday honoring the Sun god.
The Latin name dies solis, means “sun’s day”
It is also called Dominica, which is where the Spanish word for Sunday, domingo comes from.

The word “Monday” comes from the goddess of the Moon.
The Latin name dies lunae means “day of the moon”, which is where the Spanish word for Monday, lunes, comes from.

The word “Tuesday” is named after the Norse god Tyr (Tiu).
The Latin name, dies Martis “day of Mars”, which is also the Roman war god, Mars. That is where the Spanish word for Tuesday, martes, comes from.

Wednesday The word “Wednesday” comes from the Anglo-Saxon god Woden, who is identified with the Norse god Odin.
The Romans called it dies Mercurii, after their god Mercury, which is where the Spanish word for Wednesday, miércoles, comes from.

The word “Thursday” is named after the Norse god of thunder, Thor.
The Romans named this day dies Jovis (“Jove’s Day”), after Jove (Jupiter), which is where the Spanish word for Thursday, jueves, comes from.

The word “Friday” is named after the Norse/Teutonic goddess of love and beauty, Freya (Fria).
To the Romans, this day was sacred to the goddess Venus, which is where the Spanish word for Friday, viernes, comes from.

Saturday The word for “Saturday” comes from the Roman god Saturn.
The Romans called the day dies Saturni, “Saturn’s Day”, where the Spanish word for Saturday, sábádo, comes from.

So you can see that the names for the days of the week are based on false gods. Jesus came in the fullness of time, and as such, the Bible was written in the fullness of time, before naming the days after false gods became standard in the calendar.
