I don't find what you do on Bible Hub. I find several commentaries that state it is animal skin, none that say it is human skin. (https://biblehub.com/commentaries/genesis/3-21.htm) As you mentioned, the word is used as both. Strong's definition says "Skin, hide, leather" The verses it is used in talk of human skin, goat's skin, the skin of the sacrifice, etc. So, interpretation could go either way, but... context...what keeps me from agreeing that He gave them human skin is that it says "garment" which means coat or tunic. We don't wear our human skin like a coat.
from Biblehub: from Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges: The present verse gives the traditional explanation of the origin of clothes. The word “coats” hardly represents the Hebrew so well as LXX χιτῶνας, and Lat. “tunicas,” cf. 2 Kings 1:8, Hebrews 11:37. The Heb. k’thôneth (= χιτῶν) was a kind of shirt without sleeves, reaching down to the knees.
To Mike's point, there had to be a time where God instructed them to give sacrifices. It makes sense that it was from the beginning. For without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sin. The wages of sin are death, but it wasn't to be the death of Adam and Eve. There could be a substitute, just like there is for us.
Is 26:3 You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.
I love Genesis BSG! It is the history of man kind as we relate to the Almighty God!
Is there any wonder all of the truth contained within is under attack in our times.
Isa 46:10 I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, 'My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.' (I like the way the NIV says it, hover the verse above to compare)
Our entire history has been under attack in the last days. Completely opposing and trying to eradicate God's creation replacing it with the ideas of man. 1Cor 1:25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
And what are those who wish to resist the Almighty doing in their wisdom (reading the below I had to post the whole thing, read and watch the news)
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
Jude (ESV) - 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life. 22 And have mercy on those who doubt; 23 save others by snatching them out of the fire; to others show mercy with fear, hating even the garment stained by the flesh.
I've heard the idea before that Adam and Eve could have been clothed in light and then the light went out when they sinned which led them to realizing they were naked.
I believe they were originally clothed in God's glory which would be "light"
Here is what I find interesting:
or: a light Original Word: אוֹר Part of Speech: Noun Feminine Transliteration: or Phonetic Spelling: (ore) Definition: a light
or: a skin Original Word: עוֹר Part of Speech: Noun Masculine Transliteration: or Phonetic Spelling: (ore) Definition: a skin
The difference between the the 2 words is the (א) & the (ע)
The Aleph represents God
The Meaning of Ayin (ע) The word Ayin means "eye," "to see," and by extension, to understand and obey (see Jer. 5:21, Isa. 6:10, Matt. 13:15, etc.). Ayin further represents the primeval light, that is, the spiritual light of God mentioned in Gen. 1:3 (in distinction to celestial lights mentioned in Gen. 1:14-18). According to Jewish midrash, this divine light is far greater than the light that emanates from the sun and stars. Though concealed in the Torah, the spiritual eye can behold the presence of this radiance, but only by means of inner eye given by the Ruach HaKodesh.
I did not know where to place this posting and I hope this location is okay.
A few weeks ago I saw a circle burned into the top of a hand and inside the circle was the star of David. The branding rose up perhaps a quarter of an inch and then settled back down and was no longer visible. So I awoke from the dream and wondered if that was the mark of the beast which will be soon upon the world.
Today I walked into a cell phone store and guess what was on top of the hand of the young man (20) helping me. Yes!!! That satanic mark. It was a tattoo with bright red; and the lines of the star extended beyond the circle in a haphazardly constructed manner. In fact, as I looked at the star it was not a perfect rendition but somewhat sloppy constructed. Nevertheless, the satanic tattoo covered the entire top of his hand. Additionally, there were some type of Roman like numbers on the top of his fingers. This was the left hand.
On the right hand was some other symbol but different covering the top of his hand with an assortment of colors and sloppily done. Although, I did not think it was sloppy done but done to represent a tattoo in rebellion. You know; there were not clear sharp lines but demonically un-sharp lines to show rebellion.
Wow! So I continued with my conversation for a replacement phone for my daughter. The young man was quite nice so at a comfortable moment I inquired about the tattoos. He said it was a stupid thing to do and he would not discuss it.
To which I said that I was somewhat religious and understood if it was some type of religious thing. He became a little frigidity and uncomfortable so the conversation went another direction.
Then after I finished with the phone business I again called his attention to the right hand tattoo. Again, instantly, he said that he would not discuss it.
After I left I realized that he was in fact possessed with demons and it was they who got the tattoos placed upon his hands showing their allegiance to the devil.
I will pray for his release.

visit-r: You have to wonder about Purim. It is an "appointed time" according to Esther 9:27, but it is not a "moedim" appointed feast day. As such, it is usually ignored in end times. Maybe it has some kind of "hidden" significance? Curious, that is the theme.

visit-r: Interesting too EnochWalked. Maybe what the "tomb" represents makes them feel nervous and uneasy?

bernie: Gary, I agree with EW, an update would be awesome. I had a question as well from the same article. You mentioned the 2018-2028 time frame as an interesting possible window for all of it, and I was wondering if that date range has changed for you? Thanks!
Feb 17, 2020 17:41:08 GMT -6
Servant: FYI, the article said April - May 2019 is the time frame to watch out for.
Feb 17, 2020 20:12:48 GMT -6
mike: interesting info Servant. The world is watching for certain. Some looking in wrong places, nonetheless watching
Feb 18, 2020 8:56:13 GMT -6
Servant: Mike: we are due for a contraction. Final contraction?
Feb 18, 2020 11:59:25 GMT -6
Servant: The revealing of 'messiah' in Israel. I cant imagine the reaction.
Feb 18, 2020 12:04:03 GMT -6
EnochWalked: Servant: Wow. I don't know if these rabbis have made such claims bold predictions before. I look forward to seeing what happens with the election next month, and Netanyahu's trial. Also "There is a Messiah in potential in every generation" sounds familiar.
Feb 18, 2020 16:49:22 GMT -6
Servant: I suggest to take it with a grain of salt. After all, there are many potential candidates for 'messiah'. Still, it's making me . . . uneasy.
Feb 18, 2020 18:06:36 GMT -6
Servant: Reminds me of the warning. "If anyone says to you then, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it." And "So if they say to you, ‘He is in the desert,’ do not go out there; if they say, ‘He is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it"
Feb 18, 2020 18:12:13 GMT -6
Servant: I am guessing that they will anoint him or ceremony to establish that he is 'messiah' . Anyway, happening so soon to Peace Deal makes one wonder. . .
Feb 18, 2020 18:15:06 GMT -6
Natalie: I so look forward to when Israel accepts the true Messiah.
Feb 18, 2020 18:35:27 GMT -6
EnochWalked: Thank you for your words of wisdom, Servant and Natalie.
Feb 18, 2020 19:36:18 GMT -6
Servant: Natalie: That would be one of the greatest days ever. I look forward to it.
Feb 18, 2020 20:31:26 GMT -6
Servant: EnochWalked: You are welcome. And I thank everyone here who have been contributing and I hope more people will be attending and grow the community bigger. In time, this site will be useful for those left behind.
