Sons of God and Sons of Men — 16 Comments

  1. This was a very good reading, as it applies to my own life personally. My 2 children were raised in the same household, both were expose to christianity their entire life, one embraced the Lord and the other made a different choice. The Bible story of Adam and Eve and Cain and Abel have brought me much comfort because Adam and Eve had the most intimate relationship with God, and they chose to go their own way. The lesson reiterates the fact that we have a personal choice to make regarding who we will serve. Will we decide to become the sons and daughters of God, or the sons and daughters of man. This is the most important decision we will make in our life, as it will affect our eternal destiny. I like the scriptures and the picture. keep up the good work.

  2. What is unfortunate is that even amongst those who have decided to be Sons of God, there are some who act like sons of men. Why so many denominations? Why tares among the wheat?

    • Hi Lameck
      Just went through your comment and there's one thing that went on in my mind, you know as much as some have decided to be Sons of God, God gives a choice for each and everyone of us He ltes us decide what we want, so our decisions are the ones that lead us astray. According to the explanation given in Genesis 4 on the sacrifice God made it clear that sacrifices have to be made with animals not crops or anything.So this just goes back to the type of worship we choose for ourselves and no wonder many denominations

      Amen!(1)
      • There are some who have decided to genuinely follow God (Sons of God) but because of the systems in which they find themselves in they are misled. These are the ones who will receive the mark of the beast on their foreheads. Your comment has brought something to my mind, even after being justified by Christ's merits, sanctification should go on if we are to be glorified. We ever need to be at Jesus' feet if our worship is to be acceptable.

        Amen!(2)
    • Lameck...cool name.

      To answer your question as to why tares among the wheat; remember for the harvest is to come the wheat and the tares have to grow together and when the Lord comes he will do the sifting. Even in the Church there are wheat and tares some of those tares will try to pull you to their side, but be strong and gain the victory over sin and when Christ comes you will be in his shadow forever. also, encourage those tares to seek the face of GOD. God commands us because he knows as human beings we are uncapable of doing those things on our own. Be blessed. SO many denominations came about before and after the flood (tower of babel) when man wanted to put their trust in idols and in a god that they carve and the same wood they use for fire to keep warm. How can we be so foolish. God reigns supreme and his glory and power is everlasting. When man dies God is still living.

      Amen!(1)
      • "Tares pulling wheat", that's a great thought, we need to be strong and prayerful. The danger is when tares are more than than wheat and the deeds of the tares seem to be normal. We need to be ever at Jesus' feet if we are to distinguish fruits of wheat from those of tares.

        Amen!(2)
  3. This post has an extremely important lesson for youth today. We live in a world that almost says "anything goes as long as your intentions are right." Our society rests on a post modernist ideology that believes truth is objective; however, this believe gets it's foundation in the mind of Cain when he believed that only his heart and intentions alone mattered, when in reality the fruits of his actions proved that his intentions were not fostered by his relationship with God. Our young people and old alike need to remember that we are a peculiar people. John 15:19 states, "The world would love you as one of its own if you belonged to it, but you are no longer part of the world. I chose you to come out of the world, so it hates you." We must return to God and be set a part and follow His ways and not our own.

    Amen!(1)
  4. Hi Lameck,
    Just to add the discussion why tares among the wheat- when a fisherman goes out to sea and cast his net, a wide variety of fish is caught. When he brings his catch to land he goes through that catch and separates, he makes a choice what to sell, to use as bait or what goes back into the sea. This can be applied to the many denominations out there. God has given us a choice and when we do He respects that choice and does not force us to live His way. But that great day of separation is coming when His angels as the reapers will chose as God instructs them (Matt 13:36-42).
    If we choose to live as children/Sons of God we will be willing to be led by His Spirit (Romans 8:14).

  5. EXCUSE ME BUT IS THEIR NOT A CONTINUAL SACRIFICE NEEDED ON OUR PART TO ENSURE WE BE SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD?

    Amen!(1)
    • Perhaps this will help: "Unlike the other high priests, he does not need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for his own sins, and then for the sins of the people. He sacrificed for their sins once for all when he offered himself." Hebrews 7:27, NIV

      Amen!(0)
  6. Too many times today we offer the correct offering required by the Lord, and it is not accepted. (1Sam.15:22)-(1Cor.13:1-3).
    Cain's problem was not only in his offering (Lev.5:11) it was also his attitude of unbelief. (2 Chron.25:2) the LORD will bless those who understand this comment. Amen.

    Amen!(0)
  7. When Cain did not offer the proper sacrifice, it was as if he was rejecting the entire plan of salvation.
    "Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin." James 4:17

    Amen!(0)
  8. Cain made a mistake by killing his brother,he cold have exchanged with his brother and did the right offering.Its not even easy to us today we kill our brothers and sisters in many ways,God have mercy on us, we are not thankful to what God is doing to us....we need to surrender our selves to God than we can rich us.

    Amen!(0)
  9. to say the fact, those who hear the words and do it "does of the words" are those who are called sons of God, even as parent loves much a son who cares, hear and do exactly what they need, but a son who don't mind what there parents wants can not be much loved.

    Amen!(1)
  10. What I have come to notice that when Adam gave birth to Seth, Adam bore a son in his own image and likeness and not of God so How can Seths lineage be of the sons of God when He was not born of God. only in the NT does it mention again the title Sons of God and the begotten Son of God. because through Christ are we spiritually reborn as the Sons of God. but sense Adam, Eve ,Cain, Abel and Seth and all others were spiritualy dead they could not be the sons of God. Gods first created creatures the Holy Angels.Angels are also His Children which were created Holy and Perfect. Angels consider us brethren in Rev 12 but also in Luke 20:34-36:
    And Jesus said to them, “The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage, but those who are considered worthy to attain to that age and to the resurrection from the dead neither marry nor are given in marriage, for they cannot die anymore, because they are equal to angels and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection. which is being reborn spiritually alive as a new creation. but also in Job explaining angels being the sons of God

    Job 2:1 Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came among them to present himself before the Lord

    Job 38:7 When the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy

    now Sense we know angels are male but sense they are immortal are not giving in to marriage there is no sense for them to have sexual organs nor could they reproduce as flesh and blood do but perhaps in another form maybe through supernatural power. but in the end God allows such things to take place for He has control over what happens in the womb. i can not see the transition between the holy and unholy lineage when the sons of God are only those that which are born from God and are spiritually alive. no one in the OT even mentioned to be the son or sons of God but only children of the Fathers Abram , Isac and Jacob, even though all of us are created by God only some will be His spiritual sons and daughters and will resemble Him in His Glory. just something to think about.

    Amen!(1)
  11. Now many Christians think it is better to worship in context of our cultural way of living. God wanted everybody to worship Him in context of any cultural background He wouldn't have called Abraham from his family. Abraham did not continued His cultural life be gradually God changed way of worship to Judaism, which is difference from the worship of the Mesopotamians'. We should do what God wants us to than thinking what we can do for God.

    Amen!(1)
