Did other races (people/nations) exist at the time of Cains exile in the land of Nod? Where did they come from? See below. See what you think. This is a KJV Bible study guide.
Genesis 1:26-31, 6th day creation, you can't deny this! Them [plural], male & female were created on the sixth day; they were not tillers of the ground, but hunters, gatherers, and fishermen. Beasts of the earth, [wild animals], etc. were created also [before man, Genesis 1:24-25]. And God saw everything and behold, it was very good! These folks show up before in scripture, compared to when Adam was “formed”. For further explanation, see Genesis 2:5 below. 2 Peter 3:8; Remember, one day with the Lord is as a thousand years.
In heaven we see the following in Revelation 7:9, 17:15 [explanation], 19:6; (multitude [G3739] multitudes, no man can number) = ethnos in Greek (which means nations, all races, peoples, tongues, etc.) Jesus Christ is telling us through John, there are peoples of many races in heaven right now. You can see all the different peoples, nations, and tongues that exist right to this day. Do you honestly believe all the races you see today came from Adam and Eve?
Created = to create (creator), select, feed, as formative processes. H1254 in Strong's Exhaustive Concordance.
Them, male and female, were “created” on the 6th day and the ones “formed” show up in scripture after the 7th day [6th or 8th day? Not specific], had different duties, such as hunters and fishermen [6th day] versus a tiller of the ground, a farmer [after the 7th day]! I and others would truly like to know which day.
Genesis 2:5; God tells us, there was not “a” man to till the ground yet, so the man Adam was not in existence yet, plain and simple! The male and female already existed, them [an unknown amount who were not tillers of the ground], [Genesis 1:27]. Remember, the “forming” of Adam occurs after the 6th and 7th days of creation in the verses of Genesis. [One reason God formed Adam was what? See Genesis 2:15]. Remember 2 Peter 3:8. Genesis 2:5 appears in scripture after the seventh day of creation is described; this is undeniable. And there was not a man [singular] to till the ground. If there was not a man to till the ground at this point, how could he have been created on the 6th day when we are past the 7th day in scripture? Doesn't make any sense! I fully realize scripture says God was finished, His work of creating was ended. He formed Adam and made Eve from Adam. There is a definite difference between the words created and “formed” as used here in scripture (original manuscripts to be exact).
This forming event appears in scripture after God rested on the 7th day in the following verses.
Genesis 2:7 [6th or 8th day? My KJV Bible is not specific about this].
God formed = H3335 = Adam, beasts of the field, [domestic animals] [after the man Adam, Genesis 2:19], etc.; God wanted a tiller of the ground; a farmer! This event appears after the seventh day in scripture, the day of rest for God.
He placed Adam in the Garden of Eden to do what? Genesis 2:15 explains.
Genesis 2:21-23 [making of Eve] [only 2 people formed in this event, Adam, then Eve from Adam. Do all the races present today come from these 2 people? Is that even possible?]
Formed = to mold in to shape as a potter does, fashion, form, earthen, make. H3335 in Strong's Exhaustive Concordance.
Please read the following: 1 Corinthians 15:45-49; 1 Timothy 2:13;
How long is a day with the Lord? 1,000 years! 2 Peter 3:8;
Please continue to study your bibles, rightly dividing the word, not just reading them [2 Timothy 2:15]. God's truth is what is important. Connect the dots and form your own opinions based on scriptures, not what someone else tells you to believe; verify it for yourself. Biblical illiteracy is rampant even among so called preachers as well as the general public.
