Transquotation: Genesis 10:8-9

13 Dec

Hello again!

This is what God gave me today in His word:


Cush fathered Nimrod; he was the first on earth to be a mighty man. He was a mighty hunter before the LORD. Therefore it is said, “Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before the LORD.” (Genesis 10:8-9)


God fathered Christ; he was the first on earth to be a righteous man. He was a righteous and holy sacrifice before the LORD. Therefore it is said, “Christ the final sacrifice before the LORD.”

Explanation of the transquote:

There can’t really be any doubt that Christ was the only righteous man (from birth) to ever live on the face of the Earth. Any and everyone else can try; they can make an honest go of it; yet inevitably will fail. I will refer to this as, try-as-hard-as-you-can syndrome. It is highly contagious and equally dangerous. People who have it often find they have unaccountable urges to infect others with the syndrome as well as bouts of extreme despair, hopelessness and general turmoil. There is only one known cure, and that is this:

It is proven that if people with the syndrome will realize they cannot stop the symptoms of the syndrome (working as hard as they can to get to Heaven) and accept Christ did everything that’s required for us to get to Heaven, have been cured. Now if you would, let me explain this cure:

Jesus has done everything required for us to get to Heaven; He has died and risen again to save us. He, the only righteous man ever born, died for us. When we accept this; when we confess Jesus as Lord, we are saved. This however does not mean we can now live in sin. To quote myself (once again):

“We’re covered in Jesus’ blood, meaning that now nothing will, as Paul puts it in Corinthians, ”master” us. But because we still live in a body of flesh, we will fall. Paul’s point of view on the subject is clear:”

2 By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? 3 Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. (Romans 6:2-4)

— And for the record, yes, yes I am starting to like this whole, “search for something random on my blog and find what I said on the subject in the past” thing. It’s actually quite fun.

Once again, now that we’ve explained the transquote, let’s get to the confirming it bit:

New Testament confirmation:

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith — and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God — not by works, so that no one can boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)

Context confirmation:

The sons of Ham: Cush, Egypt, Put, and Canaan. The sons of Cush: Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabteca. The sons of Raamah: Sheba and Dedan.
(Genesis 10:6-7)

The beginning of his kingdom was Babel, Erech, Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. From that land he went into Assyria and built Nineveh, Rehoboth-Ir, Calah, and Resen between Nineveh and Calah; that is the great city.
(Genesis 10:10-12)

These verses simply support that, without Christ, people will also be divided. When we try to work for our salvation, divisions will pop up among us (meaning believers in general).

You are Loved!
