Race Relations In The Bible: Ishmael To Esau – Part 4

Race Relations In The Bible: Ishmael To Esau – Part 4

Race In The Bible
Who was Ishmael married to and where did she come from? What ethnicity was Rebekah? What ethnicity were Rachel and Leah? Why didn’t Isaac approve of Esau’s wife? We have lots of stuff to cover, so let’s get this party started. The Lineage of Ishmael After Hagar fled with teenage Ishmael, the Angel of the Lord found them and blessed Ishmael. This blessing is going to become very important down the line. Just as Abraham was given the promise to become a great nation, so was Ishmael. In fact, God promised that Ishmael would have 12 sons, similar to Jacob. According to scripture, Ishmael was raised in the wilderness of Paran (Genesis 21:20), and became an archer. Depending on the source, the wilderness of Paran was located on the Western most part of the Arabian Penins

Race Relations In The Bible: The Sons of Abraham – Part 3

Race In The Bible
Did the lines of Shem and Ham mix? Did God bless this mixture? Who was Keturah? We’re going to get into some great information in this study, so make sure you pull out a pen and take some notes. Before we get started, just know that I’m going to use the name Abraham when referring to Abraham and his previous name Abram. Just wanted to get that out of the way before the emails started. How Many Wives Did Abraham Have? When we think of “Father Abraham”, we usually think of Sarai/Sarah and sometimes Hagar gets a mention. Let’s look at the list of his wives. Sarah (Hebrew + ?) Hagar (Egyptian/African) Keturah (unknown ethnic origin) While we don’t know the complete ethnic origin Sarah and Keturah, we do know that Keturah’s name means, “thick smoke.” Most times
The Return of The Nephilim or “Business as Usual”?

The Return of The Nephilim or “Business as Usual”?

Nephilim Giants
I’ll just say it plainly, saying that Matthew 24 is referring to “business as usual” is just plain false, and I’m going to tell you exactly why that is. But first lets look at why Jesus said what he said. It all started with a simple yet complicated question. “And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?” – Matthew 24:3 In order to stay on topic, we’ll skip the debate about whether or not the text refers to the end of the age or the end of the world. What we want to focus on is the question itself, “what shall be the sign of thy coming…” Those that believe in the false teaching of “business as usual” are pushing the i
Rapha: Post Flood Nephilim Giants In The Old Testament

Rapha: Post Flood Nephilim Giants In The Old Testament

Nephilim Giants
Why did entire tribes of nephilim giants (Rapha) suddenly spring up after the flood? The very presence of giants in the Bible should make us take a second look at  what we refer to mythology, and a closer look at what we call history. Archaeology is rife with evidence that points to the reality of giants. According to scripture, there was a  concentration of Giants within the ancient borders of Israel, that had to be  dealt with before they could possess the  land. It was in part, due to these giants, that Moses didn’t take  the Promise Land when he had the chance, that Saul lost his throne, that David became king, and that David’s men became legendary warriors for Israel.

Would God Really Allow Nephilim Genes On The Ark?

Would God Really Allow Nephilim Genes On The Ark?

Nephilim Giants
Not a chance in hell! Especially if His goal was to rid the earth of the nephilim in the first place. Come with me and let me walk you through all of the reasons why God would never allow nephilim genes on the ark after sending a worldwide flood.

Did Nimrod Become A Nephilim Giant?

Did Nimrod Become A Nephilim Giant?

Nephilim Giants
There are some that believe that Nimrod may have somehow attempted to turn himself into or successfully turned himself into a nephilim, based on the phrase “began to be a mighty one”. There are several reasons I do not believe that this was what happened, but before we get into that, I want to share this email I received. “Minister Fortson, Thank you for the time and effort at informing the churched masses of these very controversial truths. I am curious about Nimrod, do you think that he somehow was attempting thru some sort of genetic “mysticism” to become a nephilim? I recently watched an excellent you tube series on the high-tech society before the flood which seems to indicate that mankind had become very high-tech prior to the flood which would certainly back t

Can Aliens, UFOs, Christianity, and The Bible Coexist?

Aliens & UFOs In The Bible
MSNBC seems to be spreading lies about what some Christians really believe. This is my rebuttal to the MSNBC article “If intelligent extraterrestrials exist, what about God?” You can read their original article at the following website (Thanks Kyle for sharing the link): Click Here To Read The Article There are many assumptions made in the article and the media’s refusal to talk to any Christians that are actually researching what is going on, is evidence that they are more interested in attacking and trying to discredit what we ACTUALLY believe vs. trying to understand what we ACTUALLY believe. “Experts say encountering E.T. would pose religious dilemmas, especially for Christians” – MSNBC Let me start by saying that these so called “experts” don’t know a

8 Ways Ancient Aliens Confuses Bible Believing Christians

Aliens & UFOs In The Bible
How does watching Ancient Aliens cause confusion for many Christians that aren’t well grounded in scripture? Very easily. That’s how. What many people seem not to understand is that Ancient Aliens takes many things out of context in an attempt to force scripture and other ancient texts to fit the Ancient Astronaut Theory. Today’s questions and comments come from a reader that seems to have fallen for this deception, or at the very minimum has been enticed by their deceptive presentation of the information. Reader Questions and Comments “I’m a Christian and I believe in the trinity. Many people forget that the Bible is a collection of writings by man much was handed down by word of mouth. The old testament is a history of faith and as stated in the Ancient Al
Do People Become Angels After Death?

Do People Become Angels After Death?

Angels & Demons
There are many that believe that people become angels after death, but that's not exactly a Biblical belief. Because of this, the issue is usually not addressed and people continue believe that angels are the spirits of dead people. While the Bible is unclear about exactly what angels are, here is what we learn in the Old Testament: “For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.” – Psalm 8:5 According to the Old Testament, while still in the flesh, people are just a little lower than the angels. The reason we know that this is true is because of a reference that the writer of Hebrews makes about Jesus. “But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glor

When Were Angels Created According To The Bible?

Angels & Demons
This is an interesting observation that I made while I was writing, Beyond Flesh and Blood: The Ultimate Guide To Angels and Demons. For those of you that haven’t read it, the following POSSIBILITY was covered in one section of the book. I could be wrong, but thought it might be worthy of further study. “But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.” – Daniel 10:13 The section in bold is the specific area of interest we are going to focus on. It was during my research into the different ranks of angels that I first really paid attention to the phrase. I decided to use the Strong’s to look up the word translated as “chief”, and here is wha
