Todaynatoday: No, they were specifically told to increase in number.

Genesis 9:1
King James Version
(KJV)
9 And God blessed Noah and his
sons, and said unto them, Be
fruitful, and multiply, and replenish
the earth.

replenish means to fill something up again after it has depleted. In this case they were told to fill up the earth again with people.
REPLENISH THE EARTH WITH RIGHTEOUSNESS AND LIFE ( SPIRITUAL LIFE ). THE EARTH WAS FILLED WITH DEAD SOULS AND WICKEDNESS

You said Jesus spoke in parables and hidden words and I agree but in John 2:1-11, Jesus was not speaking rather John was the one reporting what He saw Jesus do. Hope you get it now..

obadiah777: YOU DO ERR. ADAM IS A NATION OF PEOPLE FORMED FROM THE GROUND. ADAM IS NOT A MANS NAME. ADAM IS A DESCRIPTION OF THE FORMATION OF MAN, MEANING 'FROM THE GROUND', FROM THE HEBREW WORD 'ADAMAH'. YALL NEED TO STUDY THE ETYMOLOGY OF WORDS. JUST AS JACOB IS A NATION OF PEOPLE AND ESAU IS A NATION OF PEOPLE
Okay, use your approach of who Adam is to explain Romans 5:12-21

SO BASICALLY BECAUSE OF ADAMS SIN ( WHICH IS WHY THE LAND WAS SPLIT SO THE LORD CAN DISPERSE THE PEOPLE ) CAME SEPERATE NATIONS OF HEATHEN-SINNERS. THE NATIONS TO EMERGE AS A RESULT OF ADAMS SINS, ARE, FROM THE LAND OF HAM >>> CANAAN, PHUT, CUSH. FROM THE LAND OF SHEM >>> AMMONITES, MOABITES, ISHMAELITES, EDOMITES. AND FROM THE LAND OF JAPETH IS THE PERSIANS AND GOG AND MAGOG. SO THIS IS WHAT IT MEANS BY, BY ONE MAN ( ADAM ), SIN ENTERED THE WORLD ( THE CREATED NATIONS AS A RESULT OF ADAMS SIN ).

Really, it's a straightforward story. They both went to a wedding, the wine for the wedding was no more available, Mary knowing who Jesus really is went to Him and told Him to salvage the situation. Jesus tells her not to involve Him for it was not time yet for Him to start his ministry which included miraculous signs but she pestered Him and told the servants to obey Him. They did just that and Jesus performed a miracle thus revealing Himself as the Christ to His disciples and they in turn put their faith in Him.

HIS GENEALOGY WILL GO DOWN TO INCLUDE TRIBES OF MEN AND NATIONS CLASSIFIED AS SINGLE PEOPLE. FOR EXAMPLE IF YOU LOOK AT THE GENEALOGY OF ESAU IN GENESIS 36 VS 8. HIS GRANDCHILD IS AMALEK. AMALEK IS NOT SOMEONES NAME. IT IS THE NAME OF A TRIBE CALLED THE AMALEKITES. IF YOU LOOK AT THE GENEALOGY OF THOSE FROM THE LAND OF HAM, IT MENTIONS CUSH AND CANAAN AS CHILDREN. CUSH OBVIOUSLY IS A NATION CALLED ETHIOPIA TODAY. ARE YOU STARTING TO SEE YOUR FOLLY ? JUST CUZ NAMES ARE MENTIONED IN GENEALOGY DOES NOT MEAN THEY ARE PEOPLES NAMES. THEY ARE THE NAMES OF THE TRIBES AND NATIONS THAT SPRUNG OUT OF THAT INITIAL NATION
Re: How Do 8 People Repopulate 7 Billion People In 6000 Years ? by Todaynatoday: 11:11am On Dec 19, 2012
THE GENEALOGY OF ADAM
Genesis 5:1-32
King James Version
(KJV)
1 This is the book of the

The genealogy of Adam to Noah.

The genealogy of Adam to Noah.
THOSE ARE TRIBES INTERSPERSED WITH GREAT MEN. IF YOU LOOK AT THE GENEALOGY FROM THE LAND OF HAM. IT SAYS AND HAM BEGET CUSH ( A NATION OF PEOPLE ) AND CUSH BEGET NIMROD ( A GREAT MAN OUT OF CUSH ). PEOPLE ARE MARRIED TO LAND MASSES. NATIONS ARE MARRIED TO LAND MASSES.

There must first be an Amalek before there can be Amalekites, there must first be an Esau before there can be Edomites, there must first be an Israel before there can be Israelites. They all existed as one person and their descendants continued their lineage.

LOL BRUV. THE BIBLE IS NOT A FAMILY BOOK OF THE LIFE AND TIMES OF PARTICULAR FAMILIES ON EARTH. THIS IS NOT SOMEONES JOURNAL OF THEIR FAMILY TREE. THIS IS THE FAMILY TREE OF MANKIND. THESE ARE NATIONS REPRESENTED AS PEOPLE SO AS TO CREATE A FAMILY TREE FOR MANKIND. NOT SINGLE PEOPLE FAMILY TREE. YOU DO ERR

^^^^ How do you know all these? So you mean everything in the bible is just allegory. How would you explain Genesis 9:18-29 where Noah became drunk and lay nake.d, Ham saw his father's nake.dness and did nothing but his brothers took a garment and covered their father. Is this literal or an allegory?

YOU DO ERR. FIRST OFF ALL LETS ADDRESS THAT ISSUE OF FATHERS unclothedness. WHAT IS YOUR FATHERS unclothedness ?

LEVITICUS 20 VS 11 And the man that lieth with his father's wife hath uncovered his father's unclothedness: both of them shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. <<< SO NOW THAT WE HAVE ESTABLISHED THAT IT IS NOT ACTUAL unclothedness BUT SLEEPING WITH YOUR FATHERS WIFE WHICH MEANS UNCOVERING YOUR FATHERS unclothedness. THIS MEANS HAM SLEPT WITH NOAHS WIFE. HOW DID THE LAND OF HAM UNCOVER THE LORDS unclothedness ? OUT OF THE LAND OF HAM CAME FORTH THE FIRST GENTILE EMPIRE ON EARTH. OUT OF THE LAND OF HAM CAME FORTH THE GROUNDWORK FOR ALL THE PAGAN AND HEATHEN TRADITIONS YOU SEE IN THE WORLD TODAY. MORE SPECIFICALLY UNDER NIMROD THE CUSHITE, WHO IS FROM THE LAND OF HAM. OTHER DOCTRINES ARE CALLED WOMEN IN THE BIBLE. SO AS YOU KNOW EVERYTHING COMES FROM THE LORD, ALL POWERS AND PRINCIPALITIES

COLOSIANS 1 VS 16 For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.
SO BASICALLY BY HAM LAYING DOWN THE FOUNDATION FOR PAGANISM IN THE WORLD, HE HAS SLEPT WITH A WOMAN THAT BELONGS TO THE FATHER AND HENCE HAS UNCOVERED HIS FATHERS unclothedness. AND THATS WHAT THAT IS
Re: How Do 8 People Repopulate 7 Billion People In 6000 Years ? by Todaynatoday: 12:18pm On Dec 19, 2012
^^^^ it seems that you conveniently skipped the part where it says that Noah was drunk with wine which intoxicated him to the point that he laid uncovered in his tent. Ham went inside the tent, saw his father's unclothedness and told his two brothers outside but the two brothers found a garment and covered their father. Simple and straightforward story. Nothing about Ham sleeping with his mother.

First off, uncovering unclothedness here means dishonouring your father and It is not stated that Ham uncovered his father's unclothedness. He only saw his father's unclothedness.

LET ME ASK YOU A QUESTION. IF THE BIBLE WAS STRAIGHTFORWARD READ AND EVERYONE WHO PICKED IT UP CAN UNDERSTAND IT EASILY, WILL THERE BE ANY NEED FOR PEOPLE TO SEEK DEEPER AND SEARCH AND SEARCH AND IN THE INTENSITY OF SEARCHING THE REAL SEEKERS OF THE LORD PERSEVERE WHILE THE FAKE ONES FALL OFF AND GIVE UP. THATS WHY IT IS WRITTEN LIKE IT IS. IT CANT BE TOO OBVIOUS OR ELSE EFFORT WILL NOT BE NEEDED TO SEEK THE LORD. THIS IS TO SEPERATE THE WHEAT FROM THE CHAFF. <<<< SEEK AND YOU SHALL FIND. AS SUCH ALMOST ALL OF IT IS WRITTEN IN HIDDEN CODES SYMBOLS AND ALLEGORIES. ONLY THOSE WHO REALLY WANT IT WILL GET TO THE CORE.

The Bible is best understood by the help of God's Holy Spirit, not by formulating ridiculous theories in the name of getting deep. The Bible was written for all mankind, a majority of which are simple people. It's not an esoteric book.

I AM NOT FORMULATING THEORIES AND NEITHER AM I TRYING TO GET DEEP. 2 THINGS YOU HAVE TO KNOW FOR YOU TO BE ABLE TO GET THE ALLEGORIES AND SYMBOLS

1-YOU HAVE TO BE A GREAT STUDENT OF WORLD HISTORY. THE BIBLE IS THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD, HOWEVER YOU NEED TO BE CONVERSANT WITH ALL THE EMPIRES THAT RULED THE EARTH FROM BABYLONIAN TO MEDIOPERSIAN AND GREEK ETC ETC. YOU HAVE TO BE FAMILIAR WITH THE KINGS OF THESE EMPIRES BECAUSE IN THE BOOK OF DANIEL, THESE EMPIRES AND KINGS ARE REFERED TO AS 'HORNS' AND 'BEASTS'. SO YOU HAVE TO KNOW WHICH HORN IT IS REFERING TO. LIKE FOR EXAMPLE IN THE BOOK OF DANIEL CHAPTER 8, THE GOAT IN DANIELS 8 VS 5 IS ALEXANDER THE GREAT OF THE GREEK EMPIRE CONQUERING THE RAM WITH TWO HORNS ( MEDIOPERSIAN EMPIRE ). AND THE LITTLE HORN IN THE BOOK OF DANIEL 11 IS ANTIOCHUS EPIPHANES AND THE BELLIGERENT LITTLE HORN IN DANIEL CHAPTER 7 THAT KNOCKS OFF THREE HORNS IS AMERICA. ETC ETC ETC. ALL WORLD HISTORY BUT CODED. YOU NEED A STRONG KNOWLEDGE OF WORLD HISTORY TO UNDERSTAND THE BOOK OF DANIELS AND REVELATION. THATS THE FOUNDATION YOU NEED. ALSO YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND WHAT BIBLICAL WORDS MEAN FOR EXAMPLE

HEAVEN = RULERSHIP
WATERS = NATIONS OF PEOPLE
MILK = THE WORD
WINE = THE WORD
MEAT = THE WORD
MOUNTAIN = COUNTRY
HORN = STRENGTH ETC ETC ETC ETC

THOSE ARE TWO STARTING POINTS
Re: How Do 8 People Repopulate 7 Billion People In 6000 Years ? by Nobody: 1:54am On Dec 20, 2012
LIKE FOR EXAMPLE. IF I SAY, 'THE HORN OF THE MOUNTAIN IS THEIR WINE'. THAT MEANS ' THE STRENGTH OF THE COUNTRY IS THEIR PHILOSOPHY AND DOCTRINE. YOU SEE THIS A LOT IN THE BIBLE. ETC ETC ETC ETC. SO TO UNDERSTAND THE BIBLE IS A PROCESS.

IF YOU READ THE BIBLE JUST FOR THE LAWS COMMANDS AND STORY, THEN YOU DONT NEED TO KNOW WORLD HISTORY. HOWEVER IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN PROPHESYS ? THEN YOU WILL NEED A KNOWLEDGE OF WORLD HISTORY.
