“Why haven’t you read the Bible? How can you call yourself a master genealogist if you have not read Genesis? And all those Biblical symbols in cotes of arms? How do you ignore them? How do you know so much, and know so little?” Starfish leaned closer, to hear the good answer – that must be forthcoming.
“I am overwhelmed with all the information that is gathered in my brain that is like the Roach Motel. Everything checks in, and nothing checks out. I own a super memory. I am a living computer with arms and legs. And……I am not a believer, like you.”
It is my belief, Jesus kept God’s Promise about the coming of God’s Kingdom to Earth. I believe there were men and women walking about with halos and angel wings. This is how Satan Paul of Tarsus indemnified God’s Angels when he hunted them down. Paul was not converted. He took over the first church, and intercept everyone who tried to recover Adam’s Rib that is represented by the lance that was thrust between the ribs of Jesus. His Angel was cut from his side, his Holy Spirit. This spirit-angel flies away, and gathers with other angels at the Tomb of Kings. When Jesus dies, these Kings are Regenerated, and go into Jerusalem wearing the Crown of God, and with God’s Wings.
“Flesh of my flesh!”
Jesus said; ‘I have come for the sinner, and not the righteous.” Like today, the wrong people have risen to power by a false and jealous teaching, that produces no Kingdom, no Redemption, no Afterlife. It is for this reason I offer God’s Kingdom to the least in this Democracy, the LGBT community, and all Democrats, especially the Non-believers that have been targeted by these vile Republican demons, who keep forgetting that when Jesus walked the earth, there was only twelve believers. Then there were eleven. Let us not forget Doubting Thomas, who will the Saint of new Religion I found this day ‘Adam’s Angel’. All doubters and doubting is welcome! God can stand the questioning!
As a Nazarite Judge, I am appalled that a Man of Law slithers about like a snake, he driven out of the weeds that God has set aflame. He slithers amongst the sinners he hates, in hope he is not recognized, in hope he and his ilk can employ their Cloak of invisibility, forever.
Every dog has their day. Get behind me Satan!

Prior to death, the sustained rapid heartbeat caused by hypovolemic shock also causes fluid to gather in the sack around the heart and around the lungs. This gathering of fluid in the membrane around the heart is called pericardial effusion, and the fluid gathering around the lungs is called pleural effusion. This explains why, after Jesus died and a Roman soldier thrust a spear through Jesus’ side, piercing both the lungs and the heart, blood and water came from His side just as John recorded in his Gospel (John 19:34).
Why did God use Adam’s rib to create Eve?
Question: “Why did God use Adam’s rib to create Eve?”
Answer: The story of “Adam’s rib” is found in Genesis. Genesis 2:18–24 tells the well-known account of how God created the first woman, Eve, by removing a “rib” from Adam’s body and fashioning it into the woman. The creation account clearly indicates that God used Adam’s rib to create Eve instead of making her from the dust of the ground as He had done for Adam. The question also arises as to why God created woman out of Adam’s rib. God apparently had formed male and female animals separately, but the female human was originally part of man—Adam said, “She shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man” (Genesis 2:23).
God used Adam’s rib to form Eve to show that they were actually the same created being, two halves of a whole. The female was not created as a separate being, second to the male. She was formed as part of the initial man, in order to be a “helper suitable” for the male (Genesis 2:18). While Adam was in a divinely induced sleep, God “took one of the man’s ribs and . . . made a woman” (Genesis 2:21–22). Eve was brought into being to strengthen and powerfully help Adam; she was made from the same “stuff,” and she was every bit as perfect a creation as man and every bit as patterned after God’s image and likeness (Genesis 1:27).
The woman made of Adam’s rib was designed to be a “suitable helper” for Adam (Genesis 2:20). The Hebrew phrase is translated “help meet” in the KJV and “companion who corresponded” in the NET. It is not synonymous with assistant, servant, minion, or subordinate. The Hebrew phrase, ’ezer kenegdow, in all other instances in the Bible refers to powerful and extensive aid and support. In most cases, the phrase was used to depict dominant military forces or armed men. Other passages, including Deuteronomy 33:7, 29, and Exodus 18:4, use the same phrase to discuss the potent interventions and deliverances of God Himself. Woman, therefore, was created as a complement to man, as an integral part of man, and as a powerful and influential companion for man.
Furthermore, the Hebrew word translated “suitable,” kenegdow, carries much more meaning than simply “fit” or “appropriate.” This word also means “opposite or contrasting.” This implies that the two beings were designed to work and fit together perfectly, not just physically but in all ways. The strengths of each compensated for the weaknesses of the other. It was “not good” for the man to be alone (Genesis 2:18), but, together, Adam and Eve were something far stronger and more magnificent than either of them could have been alone. Adam had to lose a rib, but he gained so much more.
Why did God use Adam’s rib? A closer examination of the Hebrew also reveals another surprising element of the story. The Hebrew word translated “rib” in Genesis 2 is tsela. The only other instance of the English word rib in the Bible occurs in Daniel 7:5, but the Hebrew word used there is different. In other passages where tsela or its variants are used, the word is translated “side.” For example, in Exodus 25, 27, and 35, the words tselo (variant) and tselot (plural) are used to refer to the “sides” of the Ark of the Covenant or the “sides” of the altar. In 2 Samuel 16:13, David encounters a cursing Shimei moving along the side (tsela) of a hill. In these contexts, translating the word tsela as “rib” would not fit.
This raises the possibility that Eve could have been fashioned of more than just Adam’s rib. In the Genesis 2 passage, tsela could actually be translated as Adam’s “side,” rather than Adam’s “rib.” If the appropriate translation is that God removed Adam’s side, how much of his side did God remove? It is possible that Eve was constructed literally from half of Adam. This would bring added meaning to Adam’s declaration that Eve was “bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh” (Genesis 2:23).
Whether God created Eve from Adam’s rib or from his whole side, He accomplished the act in such a way that showed the woman was to complement and complete man in the integral union of marriage. Woman was created to be “beside” man, not beneath or above him. In salvation, man is no more “worthy” and woman is no less a citizen of God’s kingdom. “There is neither . . . male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:28). They stand side-by-side as fellow “heirs . . . of the gracious gift of life” (1 Peter 3:7).
