"REPLENISH" the earth.....

The context is referring to all the angels of God - which may refer to before the earth was created altogether (as some believe) or specifically before day three when the earth and the water were separated. See verse 4. (This is what I believe.)

Job 38:4-7 Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding. Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it? Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof; When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

Whenever that was**, none of the angels had fallen yet - only righteous or innocent beings are called sons of God. (Adam in Luke 3 because he was directly created by God, the angels who were individually created by God and before they fell, Jesus Christ the sinless son of God, and born again believers, who are individually recreated spiritually when they trust trust for salvation.)

**Like I stated above though, I believe this was just before day three, and none of the angels had fallen yet; therefore no sin anywhere in the universe during or prior to the creation week.

No, I am not a Calvinist in any way, shape or form - and how does that relate to anything being discussed here? I am sure that there are some Calvinists that do and some that do not believe in some form of the Gap theory.

 I do not know when the angels fell. And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Jud 1:6 and you have the angels or sons of God in Gen.6 ( and no they are not the sons of Seth). That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they [were] fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. Gen 6:2 This along with the giants is a wild study. seeing that angels are not sexless but are always spoken of as male. This makes better entertainment than TV. enjoy

Sorry, I disagree. Either way, whatever happened in Genesis 6 was AFTER the events of creation week - so even if that passage was referring to some things fallen angels did after the fall of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden, that has no bearing on Genesis 1-5, and especially not on Genesis one and its use of the word replenish.

      Havent been on for years, but have been studying with Jews for Jesus weekly Bible Study which has been wonderful.  Not sure any of your views on that group, but if you are from a Jewish background a great place to be grounded in the word and to learn.

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.
