And now it is even worse, now the world has been remodeled. There are earthquakes, and there are animals afraid of and willing to kill man. Life is getting shorter, no more 900 year life spans, now it's going to be 200 and less. And the fools say we are evolving into something better. I would call them idiots, but I like the way the Apostle Peter put it better: "For this they willingly are ignorant ..." (2 Peter 3:5 ACP/KVJ)
Genesis Chapter Ten
1 Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.
2 The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras. We see Gomer in Ezekiel 38 and we see Gog and Magog in Revelation 20. There is nothing good about these guys.
3 And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah. 4 And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim. 5 By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.
6 And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan. Remember Ham? He was the son who went into Noah's tent when Noah was drunk and saw his father naked, resulting in Noah cursing him.
7 And the sons of Cush; Seba, and Havilah, and Sabtah, and Raamah, and Sabtecha: and the sons of Raamah; Sheba, and Dedan. 8 And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth. 9 He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD.
10 And the beginning of his (Nimrod's) kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. 11 Out of that land went forth Asshur, and builded Nineveh, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah, 12 And Resen between Nineveh and Calah: the same is a great city. Nimrod and Babel - we will read more about this man and his city Wednesday.
13 And Mizraim begat Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and Naphtuhim, 14 and Pathrusim, and Casluhim, (out of whom came Philistim,) and Caphtorim.
15 And Canaan begat Sidon his firstborn, and Heth. 16 And the Jebusite, and the Amorite, and the Girgasite, 17 And the Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite, 18 And the Arvadite, and the Zemarite, and the Hamathite: and afterward were the families of the Canaanites spread abroad. 19 And the border of the Canaanites was from Sidon, as thou comest to Gerar, unto Gaza; as thou goest, unto Sodom, and Gomorrah, and Admah, and Zeboim, even unto Lasha. 20 These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their tongues, in their countries, and in their nations.
21 Unto Shem also, the father of all the children of Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder, even to him were children born. Shem was the middle son,and he is the son whose line we would prefer to be in. Luke 3: verses 36, 37, & 38: Which was the son of Cainan, which was the son of Arphaxad, which was the son of Shem, which was the son of Noah, which was the son of Lamech, which was the son of Methuselah, which was the son of Enoch, which was the son of Jared, which was the son of Maleleel, which was the son of Cainan, which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God. Pretty good family tree, huh.
22 The children of Shem; Elam, and Asshur, and Arphaxad, and Lud, and Aram.
23 And the children of Aram; Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash.
24 And Arphaxad begat Salah; and Salah begat Eber.
25 And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan.
26 And Joktan begat Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth, and Jerah, 27 And Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah, 28 And Obal, and Abimael, and Sheba, 29 And Ophir, and Havilah, and Jobab: all these were the sons of Joktan. 30 And their dwelling was from Mesha, as thou goest unto Sephar a mount of the east.
31 These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their tongues, in their lands, after their nations.
32 These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood. (Genesis 10:1-32 ACP/KJV)
Now I can hear some of you yawning, saying "Boring." I have to disagree with you, because, you see, one of the most important things in the Bible is the genealogies. Why you ask. Because it is thru the begats, the genealogy that Jesus is without a question, the Christ.
You see, if you read the old Testament, you have to come to understand that one of the things one had to do to be the Christ was to trace his lineage back to David the King. Today and ever since 70 A.D., this has been impossible for anyone to do, for the official records were in the Temple when it was totally destroyed in 70 A.D. by Titus. The record we have is 100% accurate, but it is not the official record. That official record was burned, completely and emphatically burned.
As you study the names of the sons of Noah you see some that ring a bell, such as in verse 11 we see Out of that land went forth Asshur, and builded Nineveh, Ninevah that great city where Daniel prophesied, to the day, the coming of the Messiah.
In verses 15 and 16 we see And Canaan begat Sidon his firstborn, and Heth. And the Jebusite, and the Amorite, and the Girgasite, .. Canaan the founder of the Canaanites and the land of Canaan, still a thorn in the side of Israel.
And would one really care to forget the Amorites? Thorns in the side of all who should believe in the true and living God even today. So you see, the begats are not boring , they are not dull, they are the true and accurate record of God telling us who our friends are and who our enemies are.
Lord God of Creation we give You thanks for your providing us a list of those we can smile at and those we need to shy away from. We thank You Lord for giving us the exact, true and honest account of where we came from, who we are, and what we are here for. We thank You Lord for making it impossible for any other than You to be the Christ, the Messiah, the true and absolute Saviour of man.

Lord this cancer of Mac's is starting to get in the way, this ministry needs him whole, just a thought Lord, is all it will take, just a thought on Your part.
There is a young man, a veteran who suffers from some kind of chemical weapon exposure, in a Veterans hospital in Colorado, he is young, and he is Saved, yet his wife just abandoned him. Please pray for him, Lord, help him and deal with her and those who hurt him, we ask this of the Father in Your name Lord Jesus, amen.
The Lord our God, Christ Jesus, be with and bless you all, amen.
The difference between a true preacher and a false preacher comes down to this. The true preacher uses God's word to convict of sin, the false preacher twist God's word to justify sin. The Lord our God, Christ Jesus be with you always, amen.
The Lord our God, Christ Jesus, be with you all and please keep your pastor and me in your prayers. Amen. My prayer daily is "Lord please bless those tenfold who bless me."
Pray for the President, pray for Attorney General John Ashcroft, pray for me, pray for all those who open their mouths or take pen in hand in an effort to sway public opinion.
The Lord God of the Universe, Messiah Y'shua be with you all, amen.
It is better to be a horse fly in the stables of the Lord Jesus than the CEO of hell.
All Scripture quoted, in both sermons and daily thoughts, except when done by a guest, is from the ACP/authorized 1611 King James Version. The words in red are those quotes of God the Son, the Lord Jesus and the words in purple are those qoutes spoken directly by God the Father and the words in this sickly greenish color are of satan. But all of the Bible is spoken by God and should be viewed as God's handbook for us to run our lives by 2 Timothy 3:16.
