Question: 1 How did Adam Name Everything? When it is well Known that He Knew Not Of All Things?

Genesis 2:19 And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

Answer: In Hebrew (Adam-lit) “one formed from the ground” and “man” – Therefore man (Adam) named Everything (Atom), and Everything that man knows of to Exist was named Atom…By pronounciation Everything was named Atom by Adam, Abott and Costello tell them Atom is on first base, Who is on first base…Adam! No I said Atom…Oh!

Question: Daniel said: I was astonished at the vision, but none understood it?
If Daniel couldn’t understand his visions, then how could anyone else? Dan 8:27

Answer: But I say, Daniel’s prophecy is shown again in Matthew and Mark.

Matthew 24
15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation,
spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place,
(whoso readeth, let him understand:)

Mark 13
14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation,
spoken of by Daniel the prophet,
standing where it ought not,
(let him that readeth understand,)
then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:

The parenthesis was the prophecy, if you do a -count of them in the scriptures they add up to 220,
which was the floors to the Twin Towers, -and when the Towers fell, there was nothing left,
there was nothing that understood the framing of the towers.

Question: How did Abraham have six more sons? Gen 25:1,2

Abraham was barely able to have a son at the age of 100 years…

Answer: Abraham had one son before and several after,

Question: 386 Where did Moses get water from a rock?

The wilderness of Sin in Rephidim

The desert of Zin in Kadesh

Exodus 17:1-7 And all the congregation of the children of Israel journeyed from the wilderness of Sin, … and pitched in Rephidim: and there was no water for the people to drink. Wherefore the people did chide with Moses, and said, Give us water that we may drink. … And the Lord said unto Moses … I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel. …

And he called the name of the place Massah, and Meribah.

Numbers 20:1-8 Then came the children of Israel … into the desert of Zin in the first month: and the people abode in Kadesh; and Miriam died there, and was buried there. And there was no water for the congregation: and they gathered themselves together against Moses and against Aaron. … And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Take the rod … and speak ye unto the rock before their eyes; and it shall give forth his water…. Moses lifted up his hand, and with his rod he smote the rock twice: and the water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their beasts also.

Numbers 27:14 For ye rebelled against my commandment in the desert of Zin, in the strife of the congregation, to sanctify me at the water before their eyes: that is the water of Meribah in Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin.

That “the wilderness of Sin” and “the desert of Zin” are two different places is evident from Numbers 33:11 and 36).

Answer: The two different places of Sin and of Zin are actually very close together wherefore Rephidim and Kadesh are actually very close together and the listing in Numbers 33: And this is a list of a complete and isolated area which you could compare to as a Large Suburb Community.

The wilderness of Sin in Rephidim The desert of Zin in Kadesh

Notice this span that is the wilderness of Sin in Rephidim

11 And they removed from the Red sea, and encamped in the wilderness of Sin.
12 And they took their journey out of the wilderness of Sin, and encamped in Dophkah.
13 And they departed from Dophkah, and encamped in Alush.
14 And they removed from Alush, and encamped at Rephidim, where was no water for the people to drink.

That span is one place of the community and has six locations within it.

Then in the chart of locations notice Kibroth-Hattaavah is the same as Massah which is also named Meribah, so from Kibroth-Hattaavah to Kadesh there are 19 locations which would make one assume that it is 3 times as large as the community of the span of the wilderness of Sin in Rephidim which is one in the same. And this community is an isolated area in which the names of the locations are not found any where else in the scriptures for the most part…

Numbers 33 2, 15, 36…

REPHIDIM, and pitched in the wilderness of Sinai.
16 And they removed from the desert of Sinai, and pitched at Kibroth-Hattaavah.
17 And they departed from Kibroth-hattaavah, and encamped at Hazeroth.
18 And they departed from Hazeroth, and pitched in Rithmah.
19 And they departed from Rithmah, and pitched at Rimmon-parez.
20 And they departed from Rimmon-parez, and pitched in Libnah.
21 And they removed from Libnah, and pitched at Rissah.
22 And they journeyed from Rissah, and pitched in Kehelathah.
23 And they went from Kehelathah, and pitched in mount Shapher.
24 And they removed from mount Shapher, and encamped in Haradah.
25 And they removed from Haradah, and pitched in Makheloth.
26 And they removed from Makheloth, and encamped at Tahath.
27 And they departed from Tahath, and pitched at Tarah.
28 And they removed from Tarah, and pitched in Mithcah.
29 And they went from Mithcah, and pitched in Hashmonah.
30 And they departed from Hashmonah, and encamped at Moseroth.
31 And they departed from Moseroth, and pitched in Bene-jaakan.
32 And they removed from Bene-jaakan, and encamped at Hor-hagidgad.
33 And they went from Hor-hagidgad, and pitched in Jotbathah.
34 And they removed from Jotbathah, and encamped at Ebronah.
35 And they departed from Ebronah, and encamped at Ezion-gaber.
36 And they removed from Ezion-gaber, and pitched in the wilderness of Zin, which is
KADESH.

All the movements and encampings are not from everyone getting up and leaving all at once. It is the entire group that is factioned off to settle in the area, and notice it was done in a step by step compaign, where they all settled first, then some would remove forward, and then some would remove forward, etc…

2 Samuel 8:4 And David took from him a thousand chariots and seven hundred horsemen.

1 Chronicles 18:4 And David took from him a thousand chariots and seven thousand horsemen.

Answer: Key in the prior Questions, helps here also, look close at this puzzle…

2 Samuel 8:
4 And David took from him a
thousand chariots, and
700 horsemen, and
twenty thousand footmen:
and David houghed all the chariot horses,
but reserved of them
[for] an

-This is [for] the lead horsemen, 1 per chariot battle group…

1 Chronicles 18:
4 And David took from him a
thousand chariots, and
7000 horsemen, and
twenty thousand footmen:
David also houghed all the chariot horses,
but reserved of them an

Question: 356 How many soldiers?

2 Samuel 24:9 The number of fighting men of Israel was 800,000; and of Judah 500,000.

1 Chronicles 21:5 The number of fighting men of Israel was 1,100,000; and of Judah 470,000.

Answer: The amazing thing about this puzzle is how did God keep men from changing these numbers,
after a good while of studying these scriptures you would assume that these are gross errors…

2 Samuel 24:9
And Joab gave up the sum of the number of the people unto the king:
and there were in Israel
800,000 valiant men that drew the sword;
and the men of Judah were
500,000 men.

1 Chronicles 21:5
And Joab gave the sum of the number of the people unto David.
And all they of Israel were
1,100,000 men that drew sword:
and Judah was
470,000 men that drew sword.

Now, let’s put together the scriptures of Israel, and the scriptures of Judah together,
and let’s put the large numbers first and then look at the puzzle like that…

And all they of Israel were
1,100,000 men that drew sword:
and there were in Israel
800,000 valiant men that drew the sword;

and the men of Judah were
500,000 men.
and Judah was
470,000 men that drew sword.

Now we can see the Puzzle open up so we can see it, puzzle solved…

And [all] they of Israel were a
1,100,000 men that drew sword of which were
800,000 [valiant men] that drew the sword…

and the men of Judah were
500,000 men of which

Question: 227 Will there be many Jews Yes? No?

Genesis 26:4 And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven,
and will give unto thy seed all these countries;
and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed.

Deuteronomy 4:27 And the Lord shall scatter you among the nations,
and ye shall be left few in number among the heathen, whither the Lord shall lead you.

Answer: The Jews aren’t even mentioned until II Kings, and it says in
John 8:33 it says the Jews were never in bondage to any man,
This refers to the Hebrews with the stars, and then they were as pilgrims,
and also The Jews were destroyed among the heathens in Germany.

Question: 282 How old was Abraham when he left Haran 75? 135?

Acts 7:4 says that Abram didn’t leave Haran until after his father died.
Gen.11:26 says that Abram’s father was 70 years old when Abram was born,
and Abram’s father lived to be 205 (11:32).
Clearly, then, Abram was at least 135 when he left Haran. Yet
Gen.12:4 says he left Haran when he was only 75.

Acts 7:2-4 Our father Abraham … dwelt in Haran: and from thence,
when his father was dead, he removed [himself] into this land.

Answer: They say Acts 7:4 says, himself, but it says him…

It simply states that he followed the order of God and departed into the
land of Charron and then when it was reported to him that his father,
still back in Babylon, had died, he went and got
his father’s body and brought it for burial in Charron. Now at 75 again!

Question: Fourth generation they shall come hither again. did they?

But, if we count Abraham, then their return occurred after seven generations:

Abraham,
Isaac (Gen.21:1-3),
Jacob (Gen.25:19-26),
Levi (Gen.35:22-23),
Kohath (Ex.6:16),
Amramn (Ex.6:18), and
Moses (Ex.6:20). 15:16

Answer: This explains the confusion

15:3 And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed:
and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir.
15:5 So shall thy seed be.

Here the seed was defined again as it was all through Genesis…

Exodus 33 1 And the LORD said unto Moses, Depart, and go up hence,
thou and the people which thou hast brought up out of the land of Egypt,
unto the land which I sware unto
Abraham, to
Isaac, and to
Jacob, saying, Unto thy seed will I give it:

So as you can see the seed began at Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob,

Abraham,
Isaac (Gen.21:1-3),
Jacob (Gen.25:19-26) …The Promise of his Seed

Levi (Gen.35:22-23) …1

Answer: But the Abraham that is in Hebrews was for a
group of people that were at a far off country like the pilgrims
This promise to Abraham was for a far of Country of the Pilgrims
It was Abraham The tenth President to bring forth land of the promise…

Question: 144 How many years of famine?

Seven years of famine

Three years of famine

2 Samuel 24:13 So Gad came to David and told him, Shall seven years of famine come unto thee in thy land?

1 Chronicles 21:11-12 So Gad came to David and said unto him, Thus saith the Lord, choose thee either three years of famine.

Answer: In 2 Samuel 21:1, it is written, “…
there was a famine in the days of David three years,
year after year; and David enquired of the Lord.
And the Lord answered, It is for Saul, and for his bloody house,
because he slew the Gibeonites.” Three years of famine had
already occurred. Add to this the current year
(the time which passed from 2 Samuel 21:1 to 2 Samuel 24:13),
and then the three years of famine as recorded in
1 Chronicles 21:11, and you have seven years of famine.

Question: 150 When did the cursed fig tree die?

It died immediately.

It [didn’t]? die until the next morning.

Matthew 21:19-20 And when he saw a fig tree in the way,
he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only,
and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever.

And presently the fig tree withered away.
And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled,
saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away!

Mark 11:13-14, 20-21 And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves,
he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon:
and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves;
for the time of figs was not yet. And Jesus answered and said unto it,
No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it. …

And in the morning, as they passed by,
they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.
And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him,
Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.

Answer: Here is the major gaff, In Matthew 21:19
Many say that this means immediately

Let no [fruit] grow on thee henceforward for ever

Question: 76 How long was the Egyptian Captivity? 400. 430.

Genesis 15:13 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety
that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs,
and shall serve them, and they shall afflict them four hundred years.

Exodus 12:40 Now the sojourning of the children of Israel,
who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years.

Galatians 3:17 The law, which was four hundred and thirty years after.

Answer: Here they say it is not possible that
Genesis 15:13 gave the minimum of 400 years and it is still a truth
that they did afflict them for 400 years, because it was 430 years
does not diminish that it was 400 years.
If the time was only 300 years then they would have a point,
whereas the former 400 in Gen. then would not be a true quote.

Question: 77 Is casting out devils a sign of a true Christian?

Yes, it is a sign of a true believer.

No, some who don’t follow Jesus can cast out devils too.

Mark 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils.

Mark 9:38 And John answered him, saying,

Luke 9:49 And John answered and said,
Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name;

Question: 78 Is it OK to take a census??

Yes. Solomon had a census (like his father David’s) and God didn’t mind at all.

No. God killed 70,000 men because of David’s census.

2 Chronicles 2:17 And Solomon numbered all the
[strangers] that were in the land of Israel,
after the numbering wherewith David his father had numbered them….

2 Samuel 24:1 And again the anger of the Lord was kindled against Israel,
and he moved David against them to say, Go, number Israel and Judah. …
And David’s heart smote him after that he had numbered the people.
And David said unto the Lord, I have sinned greatly in that I have done. …
So the Lord sent a pestilence upon Israel … and there died of the people .. seventy thousand men.

1 Chronicles 21:2 And David said to Joab and to the rulers of the people,
Go, number Israel from Beersheba even to Dan; and bring the number of
them to me, that I may know it. … And God was displeased with this thing;
therefore he smote Israel. … So the LORD sent pestilence upon Israel:
and there fell of Israel seventy thousand men.

Answer: Here the difference is the numbering of the

of the [strangers] is what Solomon did and God approved that.

Question: 88 Did the cock crow before or after Peter’s denial?

Peter denied Jesus three times before the cock crowed.

The cock crowed after Peter’s first denial.

Matthew 26:70, 72, 74 But he denied before them all….
And again he denied with an oath.
Then began he to curse and to swear, saying,
I know not the man. And immediately the cock crew.

Luke 22:57-60 And he denied him, saying,
Woman, I know him not. And after a little while another saw him,
and said, Thou art also of them. And Peter said, Man, I am not.
And about the space of one hour after … Peter said, Man,
I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew.

John 18:17, 25-27 Then saith the damsel that kept the door unto Peter,
Art not thou also one of this man’s disciples? He saith, I am not.
And Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. They said therefore unto him,
Art not thou also one of his disciples? He denied it, and said, I am not.
One of the servants of the high priest, being his kinsman whose ear Peter cut off,
saith, Did not I see thee in the garden with him?
Peter then denied again: and immediately the cock crew.

Mark 14:67-72 And when she saw Peter warming himself,
she looked upon him, and said, And thou also wast with Jesus of Nazareth.
But he denied…. And the cock crew. And a maid saw him again,
and began to say to them that stood by, This is one of them.
And he denied it again. And a little after, they that stood by said again to Peter,
Surely thou art one of them…. But he began to curse and to swear, saying,
I know not this man of whom ye speak. And the second time the cock crew.

Answer: Here is the prophecy that they do not include! Wonder why? (snicker)

Matthew 26 34 Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee,
That this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.
And Immediately, while he yet spake the
3rd time, the cock crew

Here they say that the prophecy says that Peter had to deny Jesus
3 times before the cock could crow
[Once], but, there was not a burden of the cock not crowing but
[Once], but it says the cock would crow when Peter denied Jesus
3 times which happened, Furthermore now I show you the cock crows twice

Mark 14 30 And Jesus saith unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this day,
even in this night,

Answer: before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice.
The cock did crow twice and Peter denied Jesus three times just as Jesus said 🙂
