Searching the Scriptures #36: The Sons of God

“Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Declare, if you have understanding. Who determined its measures, if you know? Or who stretched the line on it? Whereupon were its foundations fastened? Or who laid its cornerstone, when the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?" (Job 38:4-7) The Book of Job is not the only biblical text featuring these mysteries sons of God. In this episode, Terry and I point out some of the most pivotal scriptures about God's sons and the divine council, and we explain why being monotheistic does not mean disregarding the existence of divine principalities. This week's listener Q&A topics: Is it wrong to smoke a cigar? What about cigarettes? Is eating (certified) kosher a form of idolatry? What is the "gift for the common good?" --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/watchmanalexander/support

Searching the Scriptures #36: The Sons of God

Searching the Scriptures #35: The Genesis 6 Incursion

Ancient Hebrew scriptures teach that some of the Sons of God mated with mortal women and produced children called Nephiliym. These children were not only hybrids, but giants, huge both in stature and infamy. This episode is an introduction to the giants and a refutation of the Sethite theory, which robs the Genesis 6 account of its supernatural component. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/watchmanalexander/support

Searching the Scriptures #34: Timeline Conundrum

Not every biblical genealogy presents the same timeline. The discrepancies may have been purposefully brought about by God's providence to prevent us from making exact calculations. Also in this episode: Why the pattern of human innovation and technological progress may have begun in the ungodly line of Cain How the names of the antediluvian (pre-Flood) patriarchs compose a prophetic message --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/watchmanalexander/support

Searching the Scriptures #34: Timeline Conundrum

Searching the Scriptures #33: The Jubilee Cycle Enigma

Most of this episode is dedicated to answering the question, Are Jubilee cycles 49 or 50 years? Along the way, the Watchman contemplates whether the Jubilee year begins in the spring or the fall. Don't miss the addendum at the end of the episode! Also in the episode: Who was Cain's wife? Did men in the days of Enosh begin the call upon YHVH, or did they begin to profane his name? Here's the link to the Hanukkah greeting cards mentioned during the preamble: https://www.zazzle.com/hanukkah_words_messianic_greeting_card-256872097042605807 --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/watchmanalexander/support

Searching the Scriptures #33: The Jubilee Cycle Enigma

Searching the Scriptures #32: The Bright Side of Death

Death is a mighty enemy (1 Cor. 15:25-26) and the last that will be defeated (Rev. 20:14), but did you realize that God uses death to benefit us? As with every negative thing, the Almighty can bring good out of bad. That's exactly what he did by removing mankind's access to the Tree of Life. Our Q&A this week is from Richard Jenkins, who asks whether the Jubilee cycle is 49 years or 50 years. Our answer will be split into two episodes in order to do the question justice. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/watchmanalexander/support

Searching the Scriptures #31: Serpent Seed Theory

EIt would be remiss of us not to address proponents of Serpent Seed (a.k.a. Dual Seed) theory while we're hanging out in Genesis 3. If some bloodlines today originated with the mixing of Eve's seed with Satan's seed, that would have far-reaching implications. Is it something worry about? --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/watchmanalexander/support

Searching the Scriptures #30: Subjection

This one could be called "The Curse: Part Two." We discuss both the subjection of women to their husbands, and what it means that the earth brought forth thorns and thistles. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/watchmanalexander/support

Searching the Scriptures #29: The Curse

Terry and I spent most of this episode discussing the curses leveled against mankind and the nachash (serpent). We also discuss the meaning of the two "seeds" mentioned within the curses. Our listener question involves the relationship between salvation and following God's precepts, and also how we handle divine commands that cannot currently be upheld to the letter. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/watchmanalexander/support

Searching the Scriptures #28: Nakedness and the Nachash

Were Adam and Eve clothed in light before the Fall? Was the serpent in the Garden of Eden a talking snake or a serpentine spirit, or both?
