BIBLE STUDY FOR MAY, 1994 - Genesis
by Ella Rose Mast
GENESIS 1....Let us take a closer look at Genesis 1., remembering what we have learned from the Swift Ministry and other sources, and with the help of the Companion Bible.
Verse 1., "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth."
Turn to II Peter 3:5-7...
"For they are willingly ignorant of (this fact) that by the word of God the heavens were of old and the earth standing out of the water, and in the w after..whereby the World that then was, being overflowed with water perished. But the heavens and the earth which are now, by the same WORD are kept in store, reserved unto Fire (Shekinah Light) against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men."
Now; Moses tells us as did the Apostle Peter that there was a world before this that perished in the great flood which the next verse tells us....
Vs. 2...."And the earth was without form and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters."
Now; the earth was without form, there was nothing visible, and even the waters were showing no life, then what happened? Here according to the Companion Bible, and with which I agree...we now see that YAHWEH and ELOHIM were connected here with this recreation or restoration, thus when you see the Word GOD here then consider all the definition in this title. For this is inserted in the whole introduction of your story this fact that we are now dealing with YAHWEH and His Household as this is thus a new creation or a restoration of the earth for a definite purpose.
Vs. 3...."And God said, let there be light and there was light."
I Peter 1;25., tells us..."But the WORD of YAHWEH endureth forever. And this is the WORD (Christ) by which the Gospel is preached unto you."
Here in the symbolism of this verse we also find that LIGHT was to come in the new creation, but this light was not to be found until the 4th., day. And you will remember that Light is knowledge, and no. 4., as you have learned is the symbol of the kingdom of YAHWEH when it is in earth, thus tying Light and knowledge of the Kingdom together.
HIS WORD (Christ) enters and gives LIGHT to this whole new creation, as this restoration takes place of the world destroyed by the flood. Psalm 119;130., is witness to this:..."The entrance of thy WORD giveth LIGHT. It giveth understanding to the simple, or to those who are not even students of knowledge."
The second witness:.."For God who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined into out hearts, to give the LIGHT of the knowledge of the Glory of God (YAHWEH and the ELOHIM) in the face of The Christ."
Vs. 4...."And God saw the light and it was good, and God divided the light from the darkness."
Now; what was the difference between the darkness and light besides that of literal day and night? He divided thru His work as Messiah-Christ the darkness as put out and the Light or knowledge of Christ and His kingdom. And as you noticed there is still to be 'darkness' or lack of knowledge, even in this new restoration. And Satan represents darkness or wrong thinking, thus that situation will still be here in this new creation, or restoration.
Also Jeremiah in his record says in chapter 4:23-27., talks of how he remembers when he was still in spirit..the destruction of the former world by water. In verse 27., he also tells us that YAHWEH SAID THAT HE WOULD MAKE A FULL END.
Vs.5..."And God called the light day and the darkness he called night. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day."
Now; this introduction to the Bible..Genesis I., ascribes everything to the LIVING GOD, there is no room here for..evolution without a flat denial of Divine Revelation. One must be true and one false. All God's works were pronounced Good. (see Appendix 5..and notice 7 times. Then see how this GOOD is described in Appendix 10., using the spiritual significance of numbers. Remember also the significance of numbers we found in the Hebrew Tabernacle in the wilderness.
Here in Appendix 10:
1. Denotes unity and commencement
2. Denotes differences. (between light and darkness)
3. Denotes Completeness.
4. Denotes creative works 1+3=4...the kingdom
5. Denotes Divine Grace.
6. Denotes The human number..male and female restored.
7. Denotes spiritual perfection
8. Denotes Resurrection and Regeneration.
9. Denotes the finality of Judgment.
10.Denotes ordained perfection or completion.
11.Denotes disorder, disorganization because it is one short of the #12.
12.Denotes Governmental perfection, both in the heavens and the earth, thus
the Kingdom Administration finally in earth.
13.Denotes rebellion, apostasy, revolution (however it is also the no. of the
U.S. and of Manasseh. And this is the 6th., prime number.
17.Denotes a combination of spirit (no.10) and order restored (no. 7-the
kingdom administration) and it is the 7th., prime no. (10+7)
The four perfect numbers have been listed here as 3-7-10-12 and the product of these numbers is 2,520..which you will remember was the time of the establishing of the U.S. nation after the captivity..7 times punishment times 360 years=2,520 yrs. Which is also the no. of chronological perfection.
Vs. 6., And God said: let there be a firmament, in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters."
A firmament is something spread out..and this word 'firmament' occurs 7 times. In appendix 5., then all God's works are good 7 times, and then you will remember that 7 is also Adam's number. Then you are also referred back to Appendix 10., which again we remind you as to the spiritual significance of numbers.
Vs.8., "And God called the firmament Heaven and the evening and the morning were the second day." Days are eras of time..a period of time.
Vs.9., "And God said: Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together unto one place, and let dry land appear, and it was so."
Vs.10., And God called the dry land earth, and the gathering together of the waters, he called seas; and God saw that it was good."
Now; the land and the oceans and the waters above to furnish rain are in place, and this restored earth is now ready once more for growing things.
Vs.11., "And God said, let the earth bring forth grass, and the herb yielding seed, after its own kind, and the fruit trees yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself after his kind, and God saw that it was good."
Now; once again the reference is to Appendix no. 10., which stresses the spiritual significance of numbers and we are told that this phrase "after his kind" occurs in the scripture 10 times, in verses 11-12-12-21-21-24-24-25-25-25. Evolution has no answer to this
Now; 'seed in itself'., first the herb and then the seed, first the Tree and then the fruit. All these years you have heard this question..'which came first, the chicken or the egg?' Here is your answer..FIRST THE CHICKEN..the creation, and then the egg from the creation. He did not create a seed and from that wait to grow a tree did He?
Vs.12., "And the earth brought forth grass and herb, yielding seed after his kind and the tree yielding fruit whose seed was in itself, and God saw that it was good."
Vs.13., "And the evening and the morning was the 3rd., day." (or the 3rd., era)
Vs.14., "And God said, let there be lights in the firmaments of the heavens to divide the day from the night and let them be for "signs" and for "seasons" and for "days and years". Lights for illumination, and to mark the seasons, and things to come."
Vs.15., "Let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light upon the earth and it was so."
Vs.16., "And God made two great lights, the (sun) greater light to rule the day and the lesser light (moon) to rule the night, and he made the stars also."
Now; what are the SIGNS? They are for marking something or someone to come. The reference is to Appendix 6., which is..that you are to understand these figures of speech. The stars are numbered and named, and there are 12 signs of the Zodiac, and 11 of those bowed down to Joseph in Genesis 37., and Joseph then made the 12th. Here in Genesis 1., using these references we find that Moses is giving you a preview of what is to come. As well as a picture of the Old Star Bible.
The word 'Zodiac' means the degrees or steps which mark the stages of the Sun's path thru the heavens corresponding with the 12 months of the year, and the 12 tribes of Israel, and the 12 stars above the Woman's head in Revelation 1-2.
Now; Josephus, the Judean Historian who was an Israelite, not a Jew, assures us that Biblical Astronomy was invented by Adam, Seth, and Enoch. Therefore the Almighty places the stars in their positions to be named by these men at the beginning of the Adamic race. This was as we have told you.. The Star Bible of old.
Also the Tower of Babel had the Zodiac pictured at the top of the tower, as did the Temple of Zendera in Egypt.
The stars of the Zodiac and their constellations were thus placed in the heavens, and then the pictures were drawn round them, by these men of the Adamic race, thus telling the story of their coming to earth and the why of this, as well as the coming of the Redeemer and the WHY of His coming, and why it was necessary that He do this coming..as Redeemer. This was then placed in the heavens where no human hand could touch it. When Israel ;then came into the possession of the written Scriptures, then the Old Star Bible was no longer necessary to carry this story. The heathens retained some of the story over the years and evolved their of the Star Map.
In Psalm 19., this is not talking about creation, but about the eloquence of its teaching and revelation. They declare in Psalm 71:15., "They utter speech", or show forth, and in Psalm 97;6., they prophecy day by day, and by night. So what do these star pictures prophecy? What is the knowledge they do bring forth? What Glory do they tell us of? Turn to Genesis 3:15 and you find the one great central truth of all prophecy...this is the coming of ONE who shall in due time, crush the head of that old Serpent.
But where were we to open this book, of this story in the heavens? Where do we break into this circle of Zodiacal signs?
Now; the 'procession' of the Equinoxes, then the sun gradually shifts its position a little each year, till in about every 2000 years it begins the year in a different sign. This was a foreknown fact; it begins the year in a different sign. This was a foreknown fact; and it was also foreknown that future generations would not know where to open this Book of the Star Bible, thus in preparation for this the Sphinx was built in Egypt by these early Adamic people, it was built as a Memorial, as to the knowledge known by them as they came into earth, and they thus renewed this knowledge as they came into earth, and they thus renewed this knowledge as they spread out over the earth, in building these great memorials of remembrance.
This Sphinx was built with the Head of the Woman, and the body and tail of a Lion, telling us that this Book of the Star Bible was to begin with the Sign of the Woman 'Virgo' in the heavens, and end with the Sign of 'Leo' the Lion of Judah or Jesus the Christ. The word Sphinx is from the Greek meaning to join, thus it binds together the two ends of the circle in the heavens. The number of these signs then is 12., the governmental perfection or rule of His Kingdom in earth. (Appendix 10) 'They are thus divided into three books of 4 chapters or signs each, and 12 is the product in symbolic numbers of 3X4=12., or Divine Truth working in the heavens and in the earth as the Spiritual significance of numbers tells you.
Now; this first book tells of the Redeemer: Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius.
The second book is Capricorns, Aquarius, Pisces, and Aries.
The third book is Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, and Leo.
Now; I have given you the review of the Ancient Star Bible much earlier and if anyone does not have it then ask for it. Since it is extensive I won't quote it here. However it is a review of books written in the 1800's when more knowledge was still retained by men of the race. Here also in Appendix 12., they have a good outline and with those two there is no more need for me to remind you of this message. But here in the heavens this message had gone out to the ends of the earth, and not to heed it leaves you in darkness as even to the understanding of your scriptures.
Not only are the stars for signs but also for seasons, and these are not just the 4 seasons of the year, but also 4 cycles..the figure Polysyndeton (Appendix 6) of Genesis 1:14., emphasizes this: they are "for season and for days and for years". Thus the word means.."for appointed times"
There are 10 of these cycles..all different..and yet all coinciding at the creation, but never since, this is showing they must have had a given simultaneous start:
1. The cycle of 24 hours for the day and the evening.
2. The revolution of the moon around the earth.
3. The Lunar cycle which began at the same time as the Solar cycle.
4. The daily revolution of the sun, which places him on the meridian at noon
5. The Solar cycle coinciding with the first of the 7 years of Lunar motion
and repeating itself every 365 days.
6. The beginning of the week of 7 days, on the first day of the week, of
the first month of the year, and of the first Solar cycle.
7. The first eclipse of a cycle of 18 years and 11 days, to which the
Ancient Astronomers gave the name of Saros, each Saros containing an
average of 70 eclipses, divided into 2 portions of 594 years and 666
years, making a total of 1260 years.
8. Besides these there is the period of the Helical (spiral shaped) rising
of Sirius, in the cycle of 162 years.
9. The transits of Venus.
10. The grand cycle known as the procession of the Equinoxes.
This proves that the inflated Chronology of modern historians and theologians is unscientific, being the hypothesis of men who dabble in things outside their own sphere, and which they were incompetent to form a correct judgment.
The chronology of 4004., years in your Bible was as Dr. Swift said done to please the Jews who removed at least 1400 years out of the King lines so they could say when Jesus came that He was not the Messiah.
Vs.17., "And God set them in the Firmament of the heavens to give light upon the earth."
Vs.18., "And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness, and God saw that it was good."
Vs.19., "And the evening and the morning were the 4th day," or era.
Vs.20., "And God said let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creatures that hath life and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of the heavens."
As you see the waters were to bring forth all that had life in it so the fishes and so forth had not died in that time, nor had some birds that could ride on the top of the waters.
Vs.21.,"And God created great whales and every living creature that moved which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind and every winged fowl after his kind and God saw that it was good."
Here the Hebrew word 'Nephesh' is used for the lower animals only.
Vs.22., "And God blessed them saying be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let the fowl multiply in the earth."
Vs.23., "And the evening and the morning were the 5th., day", or era.
Vs.24., "And God said, let the earth bring forth the living creatures after his kind, cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth, after his own kind, and it was so." This explains itself.
Vs.25.,"And God made the beasts of the earth, after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and everything that creepeth upon the earth after his kind, and God saw that it was good."
Vs.26., "And God said, (remember YAHWEH said to the ELOHIM) let us make man in our image after our likeness, and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth."
Now; Dr. Swift said that this 26th., verse is out of place, it should be in Chapter 2., at the end of verse 6, and I think you will see that it does belong there. Here in the Companion Bible in trying to explain this they say that the Divine purpose is stated here but the Divine act is not describedd until Chapter 2:7., and 21-24., or until the bringing forth of Audaum, and then dividing Adam and Eve. In the Hebrew they tell us that it is Adam, in the likeness of the Elohim, and then refers to John 1:14., where He took human form in order to redeem. And saying that there is no indication even tho Adam fell that this 'likeness' was ever lost. Not also that this is for a Divine purpose, this bringing forth of Adam and Eve. Thus I believe that that verse is out of sequence as Dr. Swift said for notice the next verse which makes this #26 not necessary here.
Vs.27., "So God created man in his own image, in the image of the Elohim created he..male and female." Here the people to repopulate the earth. But Genesis 2:7 and 21-24., is an historical act, with the purpose, or for a purpose thus was Adam and Eve...and the word is 'formed'.
Vs.28.,"And God blessed them and said unto them to be fruitful and to multiply and replenish the earth, and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowls of the air and over every living thing that moved upon the earth." And here were the people both male and female to replenish the earth which had been destroyed by the flood.
Vs.29., "And God said; behold I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of the earth, and every tree in which is the fruit of the tree, yielding seed; to you and it shall be to you for meat." (food)
Vs.30., "And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat (food) and it was so."
Now; He has brought forth the beginning of the people, and restocked the earth with the animals and all the things for food, and these people and the animals and all such were to multiply and repopulate the earth, but you noticed there is still no talk of them having the knowledge of agriculture. Here the phrase is used of 'the beasts of the earth', speaking of the four legged beasts and so forth. Later you will notice the phrase "Beast of the field"..but remember it is a second chance for these people to resist darkness or Lucifers darkness which is wrong thinking.
Vs.31., "And God saw everything he had made and it was good. And the evening and the morning were the 6th., day." or the sixth era of time.
6., is the number of earth man, or created man in the sixth era, but still you have not come to Adam and Eve..but you now have the restoration off what was once before the flood all over the earth. Six is the number with many meanings as you will see later. Again you are referred to Appendix #10., the spiritual significance of numbers. For even these people were to work 6 days and rest 1., And to worship. And to worship YAHWEH and this they would do until overcome by the influence of Satan, which would call for the rest of this significance of #6. And then call for more of the Divine plan to unfold.
Now; this is but a summary of what Moses told us before we get into the main meat of the Scripture as to the coming of the Kingdom into earth.
BIBLE STUDY....GENESIS ll
In Genesis I., we learned that there was a great flood all over the earth and that the "World that was" undoubtedly was destroyed by water. Then a restoration of the earth occurred, and everything again restored, even people..both male and female were put back and then we see that everything restored once more looked good.
We also learned that the title "God" includes both YAHWEH and His household, the Elohim as this restoration was performed. Then there must have been a long, long period of time, and the Darkness of Satan and his household came into earth after being run out of the heavens, and we have to go to the real old books and traditions as well as the Bible to get a glimpse of the catastrophies which occurred as Satan used the Negroes in a mongrealization program to try to set himself up as master of this world. Confined here in earth we see lots of catastrophies took place such as continents sank, and mountains rose, all this over 11,000 years ago where there is still no trace of Adam until much later.
The Bible does carry some of the stoory as to the oppressors plans and archaeology discloses what must have taken place, but as to how many thousands of years between the first chapter of Genesis, where we find that Moses was just giving us bare statistics, and the second chapter of Genesis we do not know.
Now; you realize just why we say the Bible is not just to be read, it is a library of books for study.
Vs:1---"Thus the heavens and the earth were finished and all the hosts of them." The conformation of this is in the New Testament: II Peter 3:7-8..."But the heavens and the earth which are now, by the same WORD are kept in store (or treasured up) reserved unto Fire (Shekinah Glory) against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. But Beloved be not ignorant of this one thing, (or do not let this thing be hidden from you) that one day is with the LORD as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day."
Vs:2---"And on the 7th., day (or in the 7th era) God (YAHWEH and the Elohim) ended their work which they had done and rested on the 7th., day from all the work of recreation, or restoration."
Vs:3---"And God (YAHWEH-Elohim) blessed the 7th., day and sanctified it; because in it they had rested from their work, which they had made and created."
Vs:4---"These are the generations (family history) of the heavens and the earth when they were created in the day when the Lord God made the heavens and the earth."
Vs:5---"And every plant of the field before it grew in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew (remember the chicken came before the egg?) for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth and there was not a man to till the ground."
There was not at that time then a man as yet with the knowledge of Agriculture, or who knew how to till the ground and make it produce and feed himself and his family. Now; since the other people had been created and restored after the earth was put back in place then who would come to fulfill this job? It would only be Adam of course, and later Christ is called the second Adam so how do you explain that?
Vs:6---"But there went up a mist from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground."
Vs:7---"And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostril's the breath of life, and man became a living soul." This is the first use of the Hebrew Adam for man, and Enosh for others. See Appendix 14. Ishah is feminine or woman, and Ish is male or husband. And this is a gret man in contrast with ordinary men, and in speaking of this then YAHWEH-YAHSHUA is the greater for He is married to Israel. He was the husband, or the Great One in contrast to Adamic men, and when God is thus spoken, the word is Ish. The children of Adam are called the children of Ish, whereas the Enosh are spoken of as in a bad sense, like physically weak, no light, and morally bad and so forth. There is always a marked difference between the two. Now; in Appendix 16., we read of this 'Breath of Life' and this is the first time this is spoken of, it was only male and female in Genesis I., but from on in Scripture when referring to Adam-man you will see this phrase 'breath of life'.
The word 'Soul'...see Appendix 13...the Hebrew word for soul in the Old Testament is used in many different places and meaning different degrees of mental ability, from the lower animals to this Adam-man who is termed A LIVING SOUL. That is the key here...making Adam-man different, for Adam became a 'living soul'. The word 'living' is the key showing he had a different beginning, since God breathed into this form prepared for Adam. Remember that there was also a body prepared for YAHSHUA so that He could come into the flesh.
Vs:8---"And God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man He had formed."
Now; Eden...in the Hebrew, and in the Septugant this place is Paradise, and this Companion Bible says this may have been a special planting and was lost track of when Eden became lost. There are three gardens in the Bible: Eden where habitation was lost because of sin (breaking of the law not to mix with another race) and Gethsemane where death was the price for sin, and then the sepulchre which signified Death to Sin.
Eastward in Eden in the early cuniform texts showed Eden as 'a fertile plain' which you would expect for a garden. And if Eden was Paradise then it was eastward of this Paradise where this garden was planted into which Adam was placed.
Now; I can tell you this from the Swift Ministry and the old books that high in the Himalayan Mountains in Asia to the west, northwest of the Tarim Basin are the Tien Shin Mountains, and in the old books they were called the Celestial Mountains because those people bearing knowledge from God were said to have come out of those mountains and into the Tarim Basin. They were called Manu-- Hu-man, or spirit man. It is said in tradition that this couple could come and go from the Garden out thru the opening into inner earth and that they were covered with a brilliant light.
Lucifer and his people were interested in these people but this light was a great distress to them. Lucifer, remember, was once a Great Archangel before his rebellion but still retained a great knowledge even tho he was confined now this Solar system. But here on this earth YAHWEH would make this the theatre of the universe for here YAHWEH as YAHSHUA would crush the head of the Serpent and once and for all times bring this rebellion to an end.
You have noticed in Genesis I., that the "World that was" had to be destroyed..by water, and still after that restoration the Serpent had not learned that he would not be allowed to take YAHWEH'S place here in earth. He was jealous of the children of spirit and would therefore not serve YAHWEH and His household as he had done in the beginning. In otherwords, Lucifer was now in deep rebellion, nothing would stop him now but the coming into flesh of YAHWEH asYAHSHUA...Savior to rescue His children also here in the flesh.
In his rebellion then Lucifer would try to to change everything that YAHWEH had placed on this earth, and he would do this by mongrelizing everything that had been created and made.
Then into this picture comes the Adami Race to try to show their power and try to stop what they had watched happen from the heavens.
Vs:9---"And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food, and 'THE TREE OF LIFE' and the 'TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL.'
Alright, have any of you been interested in tracing your family tree? Here we have two family trees. Remember that Adam and Eve received the Living Soul (mind consciousness of YAHWEH). Thus here is the 'Tree of Life' in the Garden but also here is this other tree of 'the knowledge of good and evil'. What can it be but the Tree or Household of Satan? And as you noticed this tree, or family, is also right there in the Garden, with this start of the Adamic Race. Remember also that all the other races created on earth had fallen under the wrong teaching of the Satanic household. Now we are to see if Yahweh's children now out from under their supervision of the Holy Spirit, can stand against this rebellious Archangel as they thought they could before they started this trip into earth.
This Tree (race) which will be supporting and continuing the LIFE which had been imparted having been told they will fall, and will later have to be redeemed are now on their own here in the garden, here also with this tree (race) which has the knowledge (perception) of both good and evil.
Vs:10---"And a river went out of Eden to water the Garden and from thense it was parted and became 4 heads."
What are you talking about here? People have been looking for these 4 rivers on the map of the world, but remember we are dealing with symbolism here. And these rivers went out from Eden, and rivers are also in symbolism people, streams of people, thus the race of this "Tree of Life" comes out of Eden with the program of YAHWEH and they are to make the garden grow, and later they will be parted into four heads. We tell you that these are people after the son of Adam and Eve named Seth is born. They will go out as sons of Seth and as they leave this ancient area they will go down into the Mespotamia areas and they will thus make this race from the Garden grow.
Vs:11---"The name of the first river is Pison, that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havelan, where there is gold."
Vs:12---"And the gold of that land is goodd, there is bdellium and the Onyx stone."
Here you have symbolism that is to help you figure out just where these people went and who they are.
Vs:13---"And the name of the second river is Gihon, the same is that which compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia."
Here you are told that this is the Accadian land of Cush, not the African Cush or Ethiopian Cush. And it is true that there was an Arcadian Cush, but Ethiopia also figures in the land which is another story of the Queen of Sheba and King Solomon.
Vs:14---"And the name of the 3rd., river is Hiddekel, that is it which goest toward the east of Assyria, and the 4th., river is Euphrates."
The Euphrates is termed the Great River, and there was a river in this story called the Euphrates which is a certain area which saw this ' Stream of Life ' people come into and pass thru more than once. Remember here also your symbolism of numbers...1-2-3-4---and you realize this is just a description of the coming of this 'Stream of Life' out of the 'Tree of LIfe' as they multiplied and came out of that high mountain on their march of Destiny. We think these verses are here out of sequence, perhaps so that you would not realize the drift of this story. But going back to the placing of Au-daum (Adam) in the Garden we then read:...
Vs:15---"And the Lord God took the man and put him into the Garden of Eden to dress it, and to keep it."
Vs:16---"And the LORD GOD (remember this is YAHWEH and the Elohim) commanded the man saying, of every tree of the Garden (fruit trees) thou mayest eat freely."
Vs:17---"but of the 'Tree of the knowledge of good and evil' thou shalt not eat (partake) of it; for in the day that thou eatest thereof; thou shalt surely die."
Now; this was the warning given to Adam the man who was to keep everything in the garden safe. Eve had not come on the scene as yet, but the apostles would tell you much later, that the 'Woman was deceived', but the man (Adam) knew better because he 'walked with God'. Thus the warning was that the day Adam did this (mixed with this Satanic race that, he would surely die. And you will notice later that Adam died before the 1000 years were up, for with YAHWEH..a thousand years were as a day. And we also remember that Adam was told that this would happen, long before it did come to pass.
Here also you now know that the mixing with this 'Tree of the knowledge of good and evil' would bring on the work of the CROSS for Adam's redemption and thus showing the difference between the program of YAHWEH as Savior and Satan's program for the earth.
Vs:18---"And the Lord God said, It is not good for the man to be alone, I will make a helpmate (his counterpart) for him."
Vs:19---"And out of the ground the LORD God had formed every beast of the field, and fowl of the air and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them; and whatsoever Adam called every living creature that was there a name thereof.'
Vs:20---"And Adam gave names to all cattle and to all the fowls of the air, and to every 'Beast of the field', but for Adam there was no helpmate. (female)
Vs:21---"And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to come upon Adam and he slept; and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh thereof."
Vs:22---"And the rib which the LORD God had taken from the man made He a woman and brought her to the man. (Adam)
Vs:23---"And Adam said; This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called woman, because she was taken out of man."
Now; you understand that this body (Audaum) formed for the entrance of the 'spirit children' into earth was both male and female, and it is explained this way in symbolism so later you will understand that you also as spirit children came from YAHWEH, and in earth were also called...'Bone of his bone, and flesh of his flesh.' Adam and Eve were by this process, and explanation, were thus One Race, same type of spirit to start with, and will thus be able to produce the Kingdom of God in the earth. The instruction to Adam goes on:.....
Vs:24---"Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother and shall cleave unto his wife; and they shall be one flesh." ( Always the idea, they were to be one flesh, one race, to build this kingdom.)
Vs:25---"And they were both naked, the man and his wife. And they were not ashamed.'
Here this word 'naked' means that they had not as yet sinned, they still retained this Light of Spirit on the outside of the body, which was a covering for the body. But it was this Light which bothered Satan's Household, which was also there in the garden.
Now this Light is like an aura around the body, a soft covering which is just like clothing, and they neededd no other covering, but as sin occurred you will see that this Light covering will disappear, it goes inside the body, so it is still there but no longer visible to other people, and even to themselves.
Now; we do not know how long this situation in the Garden existed with this 'Tree of Life' and the 'Tree of the knowledge of good and evil' here side by side, we from old books get a glimpse of this story here but always it is a story of temptation that was to stop beginning of the Kingdom of God in earth. After all, if this program is not stopped, then Satan will lose his control here on earth and people will not follow him any longer.
GENESIS III.......BIBLE STUDY
Vs:1---"The serpent was more subtil than any Beast of the field, that the LORD God had also made."
The Serpent is a symbol of Lucifer the fallen Angel now known as the Serpent, the Devil, or Satan. The word 'subtil' means wise, and here also you find this phrase 'Beast of the Field'. The field in symbolism is the World Order, and this Beast is referred to as a living creature or being. An example is called up to memory as in Revelation 4:6., where there are 4 beasts around the throne, and this is symbolism of the marching orders of the Children of Israel. Thus the 'Beasts of the field' and the field is the World (order), thus here is found this reference to some living creature, but someone also besides the Adamic Race, and the race from the Tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
"And he (the serpent) said unto the woman (Eve), Yea hath God said ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?"
Since Satan knew the knowledge which he used to proclaim, as the teaching of YAHWEH of the Heavens, and now of course his knowledge learned in rebellion, then he was here questioning just what Adam had heard from YAHWEH, and what Adam told Eve.
Turn to the New Testament, in II Corinthians 11:3., Paul is here speaking:.."But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve thru his subtility (craftiness), so your minds be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ."
"And no marbel for Satan himself is transformed into an Angel of light."
Paul is telling you that this one called the Serpent is also Satan, who did transform himself and now comes to tempt Eve as an Angel (celestial being) of Light.
The Serpent is thus wise, knowing both good and evil and now he comes to Eve...and I have always wondered if Adam was asleep?? (ha) But the Serpent said to Eve:.."Did God really say that if you eat of this certain tree that ye will die?"
Vs:2---"And the woman (Eve) said to the serpent, We (our race) may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden,
Vs:3---But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, ye shall not eat of it, neither shall thou touch it, lest ye die."
Vs:4---"And the Serpent said unto the woman (Eve), ye shall surely not die, " (for here Satan is contradicting YAHWEH'S word, but then it is opposition to YAHWEH which is Satan's sphere of influence.)
Vs5---"For YAHWEH doth know that in the day ye eat thereof your eyes shall be opened and ye shall be as gods, knowing both good and evil."
Vs:6---"And when the woman saw that the Tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eye, and a Tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof and did eat, and then gave of it to her husband and he did eat."
Now; here is this shinning Celestial hunk of manhood, and from other sources we find he was dressed in a shinning armour or tunic made of gold and silver leaves, and he was thus tempting Eve by saying...come with me and see my Empire, my kingdom or headquarters, which was also in the garden, then you remember.....
I Timothy 2:14., "Adam was not deceived"---remember he had been shown all the animals of the world, all the races of the world, so he knew there was no race like himself, so he surely saw the headquarters of Satan's kingdom, for he knew there was no wife for him of his kind...remember? "But the woman (Eve) being deceived was in transgression", or being deceived she was breaking the law of YAHWEH, then Adam knowing this would separate him from Eve, who had now been seduced by Satan, then he decided he would break the law also and this he did by going with Lilith, who was the Consort of Lucifer.
Vs:7---Now; the eyes of both Adam and Eve were opened, for they lost their covering of Light, this shinning light of Spirit which had covered them, and now they knew they were naked. This shinning light of spirit is comparet to that which the Elohim had, in fact their light had now retreated inside their bodies and:...
"they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves aprons."
Now; here Adam and Eve are admitting that they have sinned with the Fig Leaf People, for the leaves on Satan's tunic were symbols of the fig tree leaves. Thus their religion was of the fig tree type. And now seeing the results as their Light of Spirit faded then Adam and Eve are so sorry, and they are sort of scared as to what YAHWEH may do, for He had told Adam not to do this. They have learned that the 'lust of the flesh' was not so much fun after all if it meant separation from their own kind and from YAHWEH.
Vs:8---"Then they heard the voice of YAHWEH as He was walking in the garden in the cool of the day (the eventide), and Adam and Eve hid themselves from the presence of YAHWEH among the trees of the garden."
Now; YAHWEH of course knew where they were but it says here:....
Vs:9---"And the Lord God called unto Adam and said unto him.....Where art thou?"
Vs:10---"And Adam said, I heard thy voice in the garden and I was afraid because I was naked, and I hid myself."
Vs:11---"And YAHWEH said, Who told you that thou wast naked: Hast thou partaken of that Tree whereof I commanded thee that thou should not eat?"
Vs:12---"And the man (Adam) said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the Tree, and I did eat."
Adam was telling the truth, and yes he did transgress, or broke the law.
Vs:13---"And the Lord God said to the woman (Eve), whaat is this that thou hast done? And the woman (Eve) said, the Serpent beguiled me, and I did eat."
Now; this serpent in Genesis 3., is explained in Appendix 19., and if you still believe that old nonsense that Eve ate an Apple and broke the law, and then gave the apple to Adam and he also broke the law, then this will put the idea to rest.
Vs:14---"And the Lord God said unto the serpent, because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every 'Beast of the field'; and upon they belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life. How do you translate that?? Read the next verse......
Vs:15---"And I will put enmity between thee and the woman (Eve) and between thy SEED, and her SEED; and it shall bruise thy head and thou shalt bruise his heel."
Much of the confusion about what Adam and Eve did to fall from Grace is because here in Genesis II., you have facts set forth emphasized by the use of certain figures of speech, which we have learned is used to call your attention to certain events.
Now; YAHWEH puts enmity between the Serpent and between the woman; in otherwords between Satan and Israel, for Eve is the symbol of YAHWEH'S kingdom, the first mother of this kingdom, and there is to be Seed (children) of that kingdom, and you notice that there is also SEED from Satan, thus he has children, and these two races will always be against each other the rest of Satan's days.
We also find out later that it is this same old Satan, or Serpent, which was tempting Christ as He came to deliver His household. and Christ was called THE SECOND ADAM....or the second one for whom a body was formed for His work here in earth.
Various passages even in the Scriptures tell us that Satan possessed a glorious appearance when he wanted such, and the term is used...as fascinating, and glorious Celestial being, so you see how Satan was allowed to appear so as to fool Eve. But then think;...if Adam and Eve had not fallen and become physical beings then this program for the redemption of earth would not have progressed to where it now is.
Now; Satan is happy with this idea that he is a snake and Eve ate an Apple, because this hides the truth of the Scriptures and makes the weak stumble in their Faith.
You will notice in verse 15., that YAHWEH put enmity between the Seed of the woman (Eve-or his kingdom) and:
"And it shall bruise the head of the serpent and Satan shall bruise his heel." In otherwords, this is talking about the enmity between the Children of the Kingdom and Satan, and about the suffering of the children of the kingdom, and then the complete destruction of Satan and his works, for it is Christ that does the work here, and He is the head of His kingdom. Satan will only be allowed to bruise the heel of the leader of this Kingdom in earth represented here by Adam and Eve.
"For as much then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He YAHWEH as YAHSHUA, himself likewise took part of the same: that thru death He might destroy him that hath the power of death (Hebrews 2:14). Then read John 3:8.."He that committeth sin is of the devil for the devil sinneth from the beginning." (talking of his rebellion). "For this purpose then YAHWEH as YAHSHUA was manifested that He might destroy the works of the Devil."
Vs:16---"And unto the woman (Eve) He said:..I will greatly multiply thy sorrow, and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children and thy desires shall not be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee."
Now; remember I Timothy 2:14-15...that Eve was deceived but here..'Thru child bearing she shall be saved out of her transgression". Thus Eve is forgiven for she was the mother of this race who would produce the kingdom. Her physical desire would now be toward her husband, thus this would make the race to grow.
Vs:17---"Unto Adam he said, because thou hast harkened to the voice of thy wife, and hath eaten of this Tree of which I commanded thee saying, thou shalt not eat of it, cursed is the ground for thy sake, in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life." (cursed means effected by nature, this is not more a paradise which Adam and Eve will live in)
Vs:18---"thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; thou shalt eat the herb of the field."
Vs:19---"in the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it was thou taken, for dust thou art and to dust thou shalt return."
Dust is the elements of earth out of which Adam's body to live here in earth was formed, and to which it would return, for the spirit child goes back to He who gave it life.
Vs:20---"Adam called his wife Eve because she was the mother of all living."
Eve was the mother of all living...of all that had the spirit of YAHWEH, known later as Living Stones, for the Stone Kingdom. Eve was the mother of the beginning of this spirit born race of children for the kingdom.
Vs:21---To Adam and to his wife, did the Lord God make coats of skin and clothed them."
Here again is symbolism, notice the clothing was of skins and the children of Israel are called sheep all the way thru the Bible. They will be known from now on as Sheep, whereas Satan's family are identified by the Fig Tree, and fig leaves.
Vs:22---"And the Lord God said, Behold! (pay attention) the man (Adam) is become as one of us and he now knows good and evil. and now lest he put forth his hand and take also of the 'Tree of Life', and eat and live forever;
Vs:23--therefoore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he came."
Now; since Adam fell, and now knows both good and evil, then they must not let him again take of 'The Tree of Life" and live forever in this fallen state or the program could not go forward.
Vs:24---"So he drove out the man (Adam), and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden, Cherubims and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the 'Tree of Life'.
You notice here that Adam and Eve went east of the garden of Eden to dwell, and this according to the old books was the Celestial mountains then on into the Tarim Basin, and this start of this race begins in their battle to fulfill destiny.
Cherubims are Celestial spirit beings, and they are connected with Israeal and the kingdom as symbols of them were on the Mercy Seat and on the veil of the Temple, thus closely connected with YAHWEH and His household. Adam and Eve must therefore be set back on their path to the building of the kingdom, and to accomplish this they must live in the physical world for here is where they build the kingdom for YAHWEH.
The flaming sword whith turns every way is thought to be the Swastica, and this is the first use of this symbol that we see in this story. Turning it real fast leaves the idea of a flame which was to protect the 'Tree of Life'.
BIBLE STUDY....GENESIS 4
Vs:1---"Adam knew Eve his wife and she conceived and bare Cain and said I have gotten a man from the Lord."
Here we have translation that is not clear, the old books and the Scripture of the New Testament tell you that Cain was of the wicked one...I John 3:12.
"Not as Cain who was of the wicked one, and slew his brother."
In the old books then when Cain was born then Adam asked:..'where did that one come from? And Eve answered:..'I have gotten a man from the Lord." She did not say Lord God, as it is written before. They have here in scripture used many names for YAHEH...first Lord, then Lord God, and other titles. Was this done to confuse? There were on the earth at that time, and still today, many men called Lord, for this is a title. Another thought...if Eve did not have a child from Satan, then she did not transgress, did she?
Vs:2---"And she again after bare his 1/2 brother Abel, and Abel was a keeper of the sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground."
Here in symbolism thus Abel would be of the sheep nation, and Cain would be of the World Order under Satan. Abel being from Adam and Eve would honor his father and mother, and they could teach him of his heritage, whereas they were symbolized of the great shepherd of the Star Bible. He was a good child and obeyed his father and mother, but cain was of a different nature. He was interested in the World Order now around them and he would not obey Adam and his mother Eve. It was necessary for the boys to bring an offering unto YAHWEH as they reached a certain age, this signified that they believedd in the program of the Kingdom, and its fulfillment under YAHWEH.
Vs:3---"Cain brought fruit of the ground (or earth), as an offering unto YAHWEH."
Vs:4---"And Abel, he brought of the firstling of his flock and of the fat thereof, and YAHWEH had respect unto Abel and to his offering."
Now; Cain would show his begatting by what he offered to YAHWEH, and it showed that his thinking was of the World Order. Whereas Abel would do the customary sacrifice of Israel which was the firstling of his sheep. And this would indicate that he had taken the teaching of his parents to heart.
Vs:5---"But unto Cain and to his offering, YAHWEH did not accept and Cain was angry and his countenance fell."
Vs:6---"And the Lord said to Cain, why art thou wrath? And why has thy countenance fallen?
Vs:7---"If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? And if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door, and then unto thee shall be his desire and thou shalt rule over him."
In otherwords if Cain would do well, then he would be accepted, but if not then sin lieth at the door, and this will be used as a temptation to Abel, and then if he falls Cain could rule over him.
Now; these two boys were growing up in this same household, but according to the old books, Cain was always doing things which caused Adam and Eve to grieve, and now he was running with the wrong crowd so to speak. People had been coming into that area of the Tarim Basin and the history of the area says there was gambling here, horseracing, and everything that went with a world that would tempt children and parents as well. Adam and Eve were very disturbed for their children, for they of course had more children.
Vs:8---"Cain talked with his 1/2 brother and it came to pass when they were in the field that Cain rose up against Abel his 1/2 brother and slew him."
What aactually took place was that Cain said to Abel, 'let us go out into the field (world) and Abel did not want to go with him, so Cain killed him. And as I John 3:12 said:...'Cain did this because his own works were evil and his brother's righteous.
Thus this is just listing the difference between these two boys, Cain was of his father the devil, and Abel was of his father Adam, even tho they had the same mother. This is also a lesson for today, you cannot mix the races in your family circle unless you expect much trouble. They do not think alike, they do not have the same type of spirit.
Vs:9---"And the LORD said unto Cain, where is your brother? And Cain said, I know not, am I my brothers keeper?'
Vs:10---"And he said: What hast thou done? The voice of thy brothers blood crieth unto me from the ground."
The posterity of Abel was of course capable of carrying forward the Spirit which is necessary for the building of this kingdom. For Abel came from an unclean womb, and it would take seven gestations before Eve would bring forth a child from Adam which would carry this seed forward.
Vs:11---"And now art thou cursed from the earth which opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood."
Vs:12---:When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth."
This was the sentence pronounced upon Cain, he does not fit in the Adamic picture and will be driven out from that family unit. His strength will come from what he can make the earth (world order) produce for himself. (Appendix 6)
Vs:13---"Cain said, but my punishment is geater than I can bear." (actually he said,..'Is my iniquity to great to be forgiven)
Vs:14---"Behold! Thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth, and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugative and a vagabond in the earth, and it shall come to pass everyone that findeth me shall slay mw."
Vs:15---"But the LORD said to him, therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him seven fold. And the Lord set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him."
Now; the mark or sign for Cain, it is an identification mark, and it was not quite this same way in the older books.
"Igave them my statutes and showed them my judgments, which is a man do, he shall live in them." (Ezra 20:12) "And if they don't then there is trouble for them." And this is what he told Cain, but since Cain decided to do otherwise thus he faced the judgments to come.
Vs:16---"And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod on the east of Eden."
Vs:17---"And Cain knew his wife and she conceived and bare Enoch and he builded a city and he called the name of his city after his son."
Now; then Cain went out into the land east of Eden and there he found a wife in this land of Nod. That word mmeans the land of the Nomads. So who were these people, to the east of Eden, but the Asiatics... left over from the ancient Turanians at that time, later they would be known as the Mongolians of the Steppes of Asia, and from that area later would come the Hoards of Genghis Kahn..come agaisnt the Christian west of Europe. The name of his son "Enoch" in the english Bible's is the same as Enoch from the generations of Adam, but this was not true in the old books....the name was simply 'Enosh.'
Vs:18---"And unto Enosh was born Irad and Irad begat Mehajael, and Methusael begat Metjisae, and he begat Lamech.
Vs:19---"And Lamech took unto himself two wives, and the name of one was Adah, and the name of the other was Zillah. And Adah bare Jabel, and he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle."
Vs:21---"And his brother's name was Jubal, he was the father of all such as handle the harp and the organ."
Now; you have sited here Cain's posterity which comes in the posterity of the 'Generations of the heavens, and the earth' (Gen.1), and is not in the Book of Generations of Adam which we shall show you later. (Appendix 20)
With Cain having posterity then remember that Adam and Eve were also having other children. It would however take seven gestations of the womb of Eve to be cleansed after the birth of Cain before Adam and Eve could have other children to carry on the Adamic line. These other children of Adam and Eve would live in the Tarium Basin and their lives would end here. It would be the son called 'Seth' that would be able to carry forward that seed of spirit.
You have been given here the lineage of Cain for a purpose, to show that he had children and being outside the Tarium Basin would also continue as would the Adamites as they left that area. The 'Mark of Cain' was thus an identification mark for you hear his name much later, in fact Jesus tied the Jews in Judea back to Cain.
Vs:22---"And Zillah, she also bore Tubal-Cain, an instructor of every artificer in brass and iron, and the sister of Tubal-Cain was Naamah." (Tubal-Cain also had sons who carried on his name)
Vs:23---"And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, hear my voice ye wives of Lamech, harken unto my speech for I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt."
Vs:24---"If Cain be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold." (the name Lamech means... shall be avenged)
From the Swift Ministry and the old books, I have read the story that as Lamech became old he became almost blind and by mistake one day he killed a man, and this one was Cain.
You are once again back to the Adamic lineage but for a purpose showing you that he and his seed continue then the lineage of Cain, the son of Satan, is included in your Bible.
Vs:25---"And Adam knew his wife again and she bare a son, and called his name Seth, for God said she hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel whom Cain slew."
Now; the title God here is Elohim, and the name of Seth means substituted or appointed, and the word 'seed' in this case is son.
Vs:26---"Then in time Seth also saw a son born to him, and he called his name Enos, and then we are told that 'Men (Adamites) became to call upon the name of YAHWEH."
In the old books it is said that Seth and his family began to call themselvess children of YAH, signaling that the womb of Eve was cleansed and now from Seth on the Adamic race once more could pass on the inherited spirit from YAHWEH, like as the Elohim carried.
Now; I think that the Appendix 21., has been inserted here for a purpose, and you will notice by whom, but this does not occur in the old records. It is just one of these insertions whereas you are to recognize who is doing the inserting.
BIBLE STUDY Genesis Chapter 5.--------------by E.M.
Verse 1:--THIS IS THE BOOK OF THE GENERATIONS OF Adam, In the day God created man in the likeness of God made he him.
Verse 2:--Male and female created he them also, and blessed them and called their name Adam and Eve in the day that they were formed.
Here we find that this Bible then is the Book of the Race of Adam. In the first four chapters of Genesis you have had the story of what you needed to know to understand this Bible. You have now had the two main opponents of this story--Lucifer as the old Serpent, the devil or Satan, and his family in their drive to stop the building in earth by this Adamic Race, the KINGDOM OF YAHWEH. We see how the Adamic family was picked up and set in place in the physical, cleansed and started on their path in their destiny. Always they would have to contend with Lucifer and his family and especially the children of the lineage of Cain. Thus you have here a listing of Cain's posterity so that you would understand this.
The old books then pick up the story as the migration came out of that High area, and Chapter 5 is just an outline as to the lineage of Adam to bring you to Noah. Then on down to Abraham later, but remember these men also begat other children. Thus here were many more Adamites than those listed in the Bible.
Adam was the son of God (Luke 3:38) and although he fell and in the process he became totally physical, still he lived 930 years, but he was 130 years before everything was straightened out so that he became the father of a son whom he called Seth, and this son would inherit the spirit of YAHWEH AND BE ABLE TO PASS THAT SEED FORWARD THUS THE RACE COULD BE BUILT. We do not have to much record of the other children of Adam and Eve who were born, except that there had to be others between Cain and Seth, because Seth would have to be after the seventh gestation so that the womb was cleansed. Then after Seth there were others and daughters as well, for Seth would marry a sister to start the race forward. This would be allowed to start the race and perhaps other brothers would do the same, but now the race would be started and soon there were many Adamites, and cousins would also marry.
In the old books Adam had many sons and daughters, and the race grew fast.
Verse 4:--And all the day of Adam after he begat Seth were 800 years and he begat sons and daughters.
Verse 5:--And all the days that Adam lived were 930 years and he died. As you noticed none of these particulars were given in the Cain line, only that he had sons and daughters to perpetuate his line.
Verse 6:--And Seth lived 105 years and he begat Enos."
Verse 7:--And Seth lived after he begat Enos 807 years and he begat sons and daughters.
Verse 8:--And all the days of Seth were 912 years and he died.
Verse 9:--And Enos lived 90 years and begat Cainan.
Verse 10:--And Enos lived after he begat Cainan 815 years and begat sons and daughters.
Verse 11:--And all the day of Enos were 905 years and he died.
Verse 12:--And Cainan lived 70 years and begat Mahalaleel:
Verse 13:--And Cainan lived after he begat Mahalaleel 840 years and begat sons and daughters.
Verse 14:--And the days of Cainan were 910 years and he died.
Verse 15:--And Mahalaleel lived 65 years and he begat Jared.
Verse 16-17-& all the day of Mahalaleel were 895 years and he died.
Verse 18:--And Jared lived an hundred 62 years and begat Enoch.
Verse 19:--And Jared lived after he begat Enoch 800 years and begat sons and daughters.
Verse 20:--And all the days of Jared were 962 years and he died.
Verse 21:--And Enoch lived 65 years and begat Methuselah. The meaning of the name Enoch is teaching.
Verse 22:--and Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah 300 years and begat sons and daughters.
Verse 23:--All the Days of Enoch were 365 years.
Verse 24:--And Enoch walked with God and he was not; for God took him. Enoch walked with God almost literally as did Adam before the fall, and he did not die as Elijah did not die. Enoch was also the 7th, from Adam--and seven was in the symbolism of numbers. The number of the Adamites for the kingdom.
Verse 25:--And Methuselah lived 65 years and begat Lamech.
Verse 26:--And Methuselah lived after he begat Lamech 830 years and begat sons and daughters.
Verse 27:--And all the days of Methuselah were 895 years.
Verse 28:--And Lamech lives 182 years and begat a son.
Verse 29:--And called his name Noah, saying, this same shall comfort us concerning our work and the toil of our hands because of the ground which the LORD hath cursed.
Verse 30:--And Lamech lived after he begat Noah 595 years and begat sons and daughters.
Verse 31:--And all the days of Lamech were 777 years, and he died. The number 777 means an Adamic perfect man.
Verse 32:--And Noah was 500 years old and begat Shem, Ham and Japhet. This does not mean that he begat them all at the same time, for the old books say that the daughter of Enoch also 500 years old was the mother of Japhet and Shem. Does this mean that women who also lived so much longer also had children for many more years than today? Japhet was supposed to be the oldest son and then Shem, and it does not list the mother of Ham who was younger.
This chapter is just giving you the list of Adamic men picked for a definite purpose in this lineage of Adam. But there were many more of them not listed which were also considered Adamic men and God's Israel.
This listing is to bring you down to Noah and another great event in the story of the Adamic race. From Noah then on down to Abraham for the story of One Man's Destiny.
Bible Study--Genesis Chapter 6---------------------------------E.M.
Now, you are up to the time of Noah's day, and here in this chapter and history takes you back, and then forward and we read:
Vs: 1--And it came to pass, when men (Adamites) began to multiply on the face of the earth and daughters were born to them.
Vs:2--Then the 'sons of God' saw the daughters of men (Adamites), and that they were --FAIR--, and they took wives of all which they chose.
Here these are not Adamites called 'sons of God'. In places they are called Angels, but remember --it is only by a Divine Specific Act that one can be called 'sons of God' such as what happened to the Adamic race.
Now; Angels are spirits and were created by God and there was some of those Angelic hosts who fell. Now;--"And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved unto the judgment of the great day. " (Jude 6) Now; they left their own habitation, or kept not their first estate, and the time of their fall is given as in the days of Noah.
"Which sometimes were disobedient, when once the long suffering of God waited in the days of Noah while the Ark was being prepared."
These fallen Angels had taken bodies as did Lucifer and they were seizing the women in the high Tarim Basin and their offspring were giants. They were normal size as they took bodies but their genes were of their first habitation and their offspring were giants and they even became cannibals there in the High Tarum Basin. These were not 'sons of God'. They were Nephilim--or fallen Angels who kept not their first estate. This was again a tactic put forward by Lucifer to try to stop this kingdom of God in its beginning. (Ap:25 and 23)
A little later on you will see these Nephilim again, for there were others also in the world, besides these in the Tarim Basin, and they would try always to stop the growth of the Kingdom of YAHWEH. They are to be found among the Cainanites, the rephaim and the Hittites and so forth.
Vs: 3--And the Lord said--"My spirit shall not always strive with these men who are now flesh, but their days shall be 120 years."
See how YAHWEH EVEN GAVE THESE Nephelin the chance to change, before he destroyed them.
Vs: 4--There were giants in the earth in those days, and also after that when the Nephilim fathered children, or as it is written--"Came in unto daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
Now; history does tell us that at one time there were those giants in the earth, and archaeology also confirms this.
Vs: 5--And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thought of his heart was evil continually.
Vs: 6--And it repented the LORD that he made man in the earth, and it grieved him in his heart .
Well, remember that this version of scripture also saw the Jews working on translation. They had no capacity to understand the purpose and plan of YAHWEH. They only knew to try to change doctrines. YAHWEH did not repent--putting his Adamic race in earth to build his kingdom. But no doubt he grieved to see these rebellious Angels now in bodies of flesh, doing as they were in the High Tarim Basin and he decides to:--
Vs: 7--And the LORD said:--I will destroy --or wipe out.-- Who?--these whom I created --from the face of the earth, both man and beast and creeping thing, and fowls of the air, for it repenteth me that I have made them.
Vs:8--But Noah found Grace in the eyes of the LORD.
Now;--according to the old books, Noah and his family lived down in Northern India in the great civilization the Aryans built as they first came out of the High Tarim Basin.
Vs: 9--These are the generations of Noah.
Noah was a just man, remember, and perfect in his generation because he walked with YAHWEH (God). He was perfect because he had kept his lineage pure. After all the instruction to the Adamic race was very specific. They were not to mix their seed with another race, and especially, were they warned about this race of Lucifer--Those knowing good and evil.
Vs: 10--and Noah begat three sons--Shem, Ham and Japheth.
The work earth then becomes that word--eret--meaning all that area of the Tarim Basin, was corrupt before God and the earth (in that area) was filled with violence.
Vs: 12--And YAHWEH looked upon the earth (there in the Tarim Basin) and behold it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth (in that area).
Vs: 13--Therefore YAHWEH said to Noah:--"There shall be an end of all flesh in that area, so I will destroy them from off the earth (in that area).
You now can see from this translation that people might get the idea that YAHWEH was going to destroy everyone on earth but Noah and his family. This is because they do not understand the history of this time, or this translation and who was causing the catastrophe or the words of old describing this event, here at the time of Noah. But Noah was given a job to do. YAHWEH sent Noah back to that area with his family to build an ARK of gopher wood, and put rooms in this ark and cover it with pitch so it would float and not leak, for there would be a great lot of water in this area when those 120 years were up.
Now;-- why destroy the animals there in that area also? You are told that everything had been corrupted in that area--the cup of iniquity was full. Therefore the time had come for judgement to be meted out. As we have said the offspring of these fallen angels being giants were eating everything in sight and people also. And remember YAHWEH could have just destroyed the whole thing, but he sent Noah and family back to build the Ark for a great purpose. To show again, not only the difference in these two kingdoms, but to show his deliverance of HIS KINGDOM PEOPLE, always, as well as HIS GRACE for he deals even with those who are evil with Grace.
Thus Noah and his family came to the Tarim Basin and they made the Ark--
Vs: 15--The length of the Ark shall be 300 Cubits, the breadth of it 50 Cubits.
Even the Ark was built in symbolism.
Vs: 16--A window was to be put in the ARK and the door was in the side, and this Ark was 3 stories high..---
Vs: 17--And now YAHWEH was to bring a flood upon this area and all would be destroyed by water..
Vs: 18--But with Thee (Noah) I will establish my covenant, and thou shall come into the Ark with thy sons and thy wife, and thy sons wives.
Vs: 19--And YAHWEH would then bring 2 of every sort into the ARK , of all living things in the area--thus he would not destroy all the animals and fowls and so forth of the creeping things.
Vs:20 --Fowls after kind, cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing ,every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive,
Vs:--21--And take thou unto thee of all the food that is eaten, and you shall gather , and it
shall be for food for you and those with you.
Verse: 22---Thus did Noah; according to all that God told him to do, so did he.
Thus Noah did all that God told him to do, and He and his family went back to the basin and built the Ark over those 120 years and he was a minister to the people as well, altho they did not pay any attention for after all they like Sodom and Gomorrah were ready for judgment.
And when he was ready then the Almighty would bring the animals to the Ark and would load them for Noah and his family.
Bible Study--Genesis Chapter 7-----------------------------------------------E.M.
The time came at last, Noah had preached for the 120 years as he built the Ark, and had been laughed at, by the people in that area who could not see that their cup of iniquity was full--but just the same the time came and:--
Verse 1:--And YAHWEH said unto Noah, come all your household into the Ark, for thee I have seen righteous before me in this generation (family history).
Verse 2:--"Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and the female, and of beasts that are not clean (not for food) take two--male and female (for reproduction).
The clean beasts for food, or for sacrifice when they come out of the Ark, and here you see the number 7 which means spiritual perfection, and Adam's race number is 7.
Verse 3:--"Of the fowls also of the air, take by sevens, the male and the female to keep seed alive upon the face of the earth (or in this area).
Verse 4:--And yet 7 days and then I will cause it to rain upon the earth 40 days and 40 nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the earth--(from this area).
The word earth is here again--(eret) meaning all that area. This is for a reason for the number 7 is Adams number, and he starts the kingdom in earth, and number 4 is the number of the Kingdom, and 40 is 4 times 10 a completion number. Thus the number 40 in Divine order applied to earthly things is the number of probation (or the act of proving).
Verse 5:--"And Noah did according to all that the LORD commanded him".
Verse 6:--"And Noah was 600 years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth (in that area).
Verse 7:--"And Noah went in, and his sons and his wife and his son's wives with him--into the Ark, because of the waters of the flood."
Notice here the number of the verse is also 7--thus Adamites would go into the Ark, and the use of the word--And--is used for emphatic purposes (App: 6) calling your attention to what is spoken of every time it is used. Also notice here the different titles for YAHWEH--meaning YAHWEH-Elohim and then The LORD God, and just LORD--was this the work of the translator to make you think there were many Gods?
Verse 8:--"Of the clean Beasts and beasts that were not clean, and of fowls, and of everything that creepest upon the earth."
Verse 9:--They went in--two by two, unto Noah, into the Ark, the male and the female as God (now it is YAHWEH AND Elohim) had commanded Noah."
Now; the animals are in the Ark with Noah and his family, did you ever stop to think that if this flood were all over the whole earth, how big a navy would it take just to haul all the animals of the earth, and their food? Besides YAHWEH would have to bring 2 elephants from Africa and other places up to the high mountains of Asia to put them on the Ark, or many Arks that it would have taken to haul them, but there was just Noah and his sons to do all this feeding?
Verse 10:--"And it came to pass after 7 days that the waters of the flood were upon the earth."
Now; why 7 days instead of 6? Again this is symbolism for this is the story of the deliverance of number 7 or The Adamic race for they are the Kingdom of YAHWEH in earth.
Verse 11:--"In the 600th., year of Noah's life in the second month, and on the 17th., day of the month, the same day, were all the fountains of the deep broken up, and the window's of heaven opened."
Now; Noah had been in physical body in earth 600 years--thus the symbolism for earth man, and here your symbolism consists of the numbers--6-2-and 17.
The fountains of the deep refer to the fact that under that land in that Great Basin was an inland sea; thus the land also sank as the rain fell from the heavens, but it was the sinking of the land to suddenly which caused the catastrophe, and caught the people unawares.
Now; I would suggest that you read the booklet by Dr. Swift telling of his research into what that area was liked entitled "--Were all of the people of the earth drowned in the Flood."
Verse 12:--"And the rain was upon the earth 40 days and 40 nights." Again you have your symbolism of numbers 10 X 4=40---- 10 is completion and 4 the kingdom.
These next verses are almost a repeat:--
Verse 13:--"In the self same day entered Noah, and Shem, Ham and Japhet, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the 3 wives of his sons with them unto the Ark."
Thus again symbolism 8 persons entered the Ark and you turn to the New Testament for confirmation:--I Peter 3:20---"8 souls were saved by water" so again the symbolism number 8.
Verse 14-16:--"Every animal after his kind, male and female and every fowl, and bird of every sort, and creeping things, each after its own kind as God commanded, went into the Ark and the Lord God shut them in."
Here the title God is to mean the Almighty Creator shutting them into the Ark, so we are sure he did the job of moving those animals into the Ark and into their rightful places in the Ark which Noah and sons had prepared for them.
Verse 18:--And the waters prevailed and were greatly increased upon the earth and the Ark now is moving upon the face of the waters.
Verse 19:--"The waters continued and all the high hills in that area are now covered."
Remember that this basin was ringed by high mountains, it was about the size of the state of Kansas, and there were level spots, but also some high hills but the mountains around it were very high, and they increased to this height by degrees.
Verse 20:--15 cubits did the water prevail and the mountains were covered'---alright the mountains in that area but not the high mountains around this plateau.
Verse 21:--And everything in the valley, or plateau that was confined to earth of that area died.
Again you are reminded to notice the word -- 'And' to emphasize that there was a complete extinction here of life. This is signifying a break and a fresh beginning.
Verse 22:--"All those in whose nostrils was the breath of life of all that was in this dry land, died."
Now; the words, breath of life here is not Hebrew which is 'Ruach'---instead it is n'Shamah meaning non-Hebrew. The word Shamah we will see later at the time of Christ---as false Pharisee.
Verse 23:--"And every living substance was destroyed (in that land) both man, and cattle, and the creeping things and the fowls of the heavens, and they were destroyed (or blotted out) Noah only remained and those that were with him in the Ark."
Verse 24:--And the waters prevailed over the earth (in that area) 150 days. And here again your symbolism for the numbers to connect are 10 and 5---Completion and the Work of YAHWEH.
GENESIS CHAPTER 8---Bible Study-----------------------------E.M.
Vs: 1 --And God remembered Noah and every living thing, and all the cattle, that was with him in the Ark, and God made a WIND to pass over the earth, and the waters ceased.:-----
Now,--God here in Hebrew is also Elohim---because here every living thing is included and it was YAHWEH and his family who set in place this program to build HIS kingdom, in earth, and here to be destroyed in this place of beginning was all those and everything which was used to try to hinder this kingdom.
Vs: 2---'The fountains of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped and the rain from heaven was restrained.'
Vs: 3---And the waters returned off the earth continually; and after the 150 days the waters were abated.'
Vs: 4---'And the Ark rested in the 7th month, and the 17th day of the month upon the mountains of Ararat."
So---the Ark came to rest on a Sabbath--Seventh day, of the month, and the17th day of the month upon the mountains of Ararat.'---
Now; 7th day is Adams number, and Sabbath means Spiritual perfection, and the number 17 denotes a combination of Spirit and order, for this is the 7th, prime number. Other numbers lide 25 and 27 and so forth, follow the laws of the smaller numbers---thus 24 would be 12 times 2--so 24 is just a higher form of 12.
Now; I should call your attention to this-------- there is always this fight between the Childred of Light and Childred of Darkness and they have their pattern of numbers and their meanings, and if 42 is the number of Anti-Christ in their numerology, then there is also the numerology of the Childred of Light and the higher numbers according to the Companion Bible---the higher numbers take on the meaning of the lower numbers as their most important feature.
An instance of this is----the Jews use the 9 candle Candalabra where the Israelites had 7 candles. The Seven signified that this number is Adam's number and in the other listing of numbers 9 is judgment and they do not seem to know that, or they think from their fathers line of thought that the judgment will be upon the Children of Light. But there is this two listing of numbers when you are studing this. Therefore their numbers are just totally opposite Adam's numbers.
So the Ark came to rest in the month of July on the 17th day, the last prime number in the symbolism lineup of July, on a Sabbath, upon the MOUNTAINS of Ararat. The work Ararat means a high mountain, --thus it rested upon a high mountain in the chain of mountains, but high as the flood went in that area of the Tarim Basin. We then think that the ARK rested upon the top of one of the high mountains in this mountain chain of the Himalayan mountains. We would also say at the south west corner of that basin, on the route of migration of the Adamic race as they left the area, for there are certain passes out of those mountains.
Vs: 5---'And the waters decreased continually until the 10th, month or September, and at the first of September then the tops of the mountains were seen'. Here this is not listed as a Sabbath. And here as Noah looked, the tops of the mountains were to be seen, so this was on the top of one of the high mountains within this basin that the Ark rested.
Vs: 6---"Then it came to pass at the end of 40 days that Noah opened the window of the Ark which he had made."
Vs: 7---"And he sent forth a raven, which went forth to and fro, until the waters were dried up from off the earth."
Now a raven is an unclean bird for it eats Carron and it did not come back to the earth.
Now; in this chapter also is another Key to understanding---- Remember that it says:---God sent forth a wind to dry up the earth.
Well, what was this WIND---According to history there was a great earthquake in that area and as the Ark was beginning to rest, when undoubtedly that earthquake took place and this rim of that big basin was opened at the east end and the west, and the waters rushed out, some going out on the south and east and down the Whang-ho river of China, and on the west, it went westward in the mountains until the Tigrus and Euphrates river beginning and then went down those rivers.
Archaeologist have found the facts of this in their digging along those rivers of Euphrates at the city of Ur, and the Chinese records show the other end of the flooding area.
So this wind came forth from the Spirit of YAHWEH, and look up the meaning of Wind in the Concordance and you get the impression of a meaning of great distress and disturbance connected with it.
Vs: 8---'Then Noah sent forth a Dove to see if the waters were abaited from off of that area of ground.'
The Dove--a clean bird, also the symbol of Spirit, and you will understand what the Dove was searching for.
Vs: 9---The Dove did not find a place to rest and returned to Noah and the Ark."
Thus the waters were still here, and the Dove did not fing what it was searching for--sumbolically. And Noah took the dove back into the Ark, for a little while, and the next verse tells you more.
Vs: 10---(No. 10) Then Noah waited another 7 days and again he sent forth the Dove.--
Vs: 11---And notice--this time the Dove came back with an Olive leaf in her mouth.---And now Noah would know that the waters were abated from off the earth where the migration path of the Adamites had been established.
Vs: 12---"And Noah reated yet 7 more days and sent the Dove out again, and she returned no more."
Thus the Dove had returned with an Olive leaf in her mouth signifying she had found the trail of the Adamites, for their symbol was the Olive tree, and Noah knew that prophecy---the deliverance of Israel was coming true.
Vs: 13---And it came to pass in the 601 years, in the 1st month, the first day of the month that the waters were dried up from off the earth, and now Noah removed the covering of the Ark and looked and behold the ground around the Ark was dry. Thus it was in the 601th year in the life of Noah, on the first day of the month---and you will remember that these first day of the month events were very important in the Bible--remember:------
1. The drying up of the waters here at the time of Noah. (Gen:13)
2. The setting up of the Tabernacle at the time of Moses. (EX:40:21)
3. The sanctification of the cleansed temple by Hezekiah. (IIChron:29:17)
4. The going up of Ezra to Jerusalem. (7:9)
5. The giving up of strange wives. (Ezra 10:17)
6. The offering up of a Bullock in Ezekiel's future Temple. (EZ:45:18)
Vs: 14----'And in the second month, on the 27th day of the month, the earth was dried up.'
This was also the completion of the solar year from Chapter 7:11
Vs: 15 ---And God spoke unto Noah saying:---
Vs: 16---'Go forth from the Ark, thou and thy wife and thy sons and thy sons wives with thee.'
Vs: 17---And bring forth, with thee every living thing that is with thee, so that they may breed abundantly on the earth and be fruitful and multiply upon the earth.'
Vs: 18---And Noah went forth, and his sons and his wife and his sons and their wives with him.
Vs: 19---And every other thing in the Ark also went forth. Thus the Ark had been unloaded.
Vs: 20---And Noah built an altar unto YAHWEH and took of every clean beast, and of the clean fowl, and offered burnt offering on the altar'- and the scent always moved upward from such an offering.
Vs:21---And YAHWEH smelled a sweet savor and HE said:--Never again will I curse the gound for man's sake.'
In other words never again will He destroy this way for Adam's sake thus:-Vs: 22---While the earth remaineth there will be seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.'
Now; this Covenant of YAHWEH -- with Noah was unconditional as in connection with the earth, as it was also with Abraham for he gave Abraham the land, as He gave David the throne.
Again here in this Chapter there are many---ANDS---these are to emphaize each promise.
Bible Study--Genesis Chapter 9--------------------------E. M.
Vs: 1---And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them:--"Be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth."
Now remember, up unto now Noah's sons and their wives had no children, so now they need to have children and replace some of the Adamic seed lost in earth in the beginning. The Ark remember was a symbol of the deliverance of Israel and Noah and family are also in this symbolism, as were all the Adamic race if they do not mix their race, but if this occurs then the Adamite is breaking the law, and punishment awaits, and the child is not an Adamite.
Vs: 2---"and the fear of you, and dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the ground, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand they are delivered."
This is the reaffirming of this old commitment to Israel.
Vs: 3---"Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you, even as the green herbs have I given you---all things."
Vs: 4---But flesh with the life therein which is the blood thereof ye shall not eat."
The word life is the Hebrew Nephesh (app:13)
The blood is symbolic of the doctrine of substitution and atonement. The Wages of sin being death--this required the shedding of blood for the atonement, and no other could make the atonement but YAHWEH AS YAHSHUA or Saviour. Therefore the Adamites were not to be cannibals as were these strange Nephilin of fallen Angels. They were not to eat animal flesh raw, as some of the pagans did. They were to remember that the burnt offering was what rose as a sweet savor to their God---thus cooked meat. Always the blood must be removed, and always the blood was to remind them of the coming atonement, the price paid for breaking the law.
Vs: 5---And surely your blood of your lives will I require at the hand of every Beast will I require it, and at the hand of man, and at the hand of every one's brother will I require the life of man..
---Every Beast (app:6)
Every beast here is--things represented as persons.--and notice these Beasts have hands. We think this is talking about those of the world order. They were not to kill an Adamite, and as Adamite was not to kill his brethren either.
Vs: 6--Whosoever shedeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed, for in the image of God made He man.'
Here the word man is Adam, and this is discussing Capital punishment, and always remember, it was Adaum (Adam and Eve) who were made in the image of God (YAHWEH AND THE ELOHIM) not the male and female of Genesis 1 restoration.
Vs: 7---'And you, be ye fruitful, multiply, bring forth abundantly in the earty, and multiply therein.'
Vs: 8---'And God spake unto Noah and unto his sons with him saying:---
Vs: 9---'And Behold I establish my covenant with thee, and thy seed after thee,'--And you are to remember that Noah and his family are but a representation of the race.
Vs: 10--'And with every living creature that is with thee, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of earth with you, from all that go out of the Ark, to every beast of the earth.
Vs: 11--'And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off anymore by the water of a flood; neither shall there anymore be a flood to destroy the earth.'
Vs: 12--And God said:--"This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you for a perpetual generation."
Vs: 13--"I do set my bow in the cloud and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth."
Vs: 14--And it shall come to pass when I bring a cloud over the earth that the bow shall be seen in the cloud.
Vs: 15--and I will remember my covenant which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.
Vs: 16--And the bow shall be in the cloud and I will look upon it, that----------
I may remember the everlasting covenant between me and every living creature of all flesh, that is upon the earth.
Vs: 17--And God said to Noah: "This is the token of the Covenant which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.'
Now; the word Everlasting Covenant occurs 14 times in the Scripture, 13 times in the Old Testament and 1 time in the New
Vs: 18--And the sons of Noah that went forth of the Ark were Shem, Ham and Japheth, and Ham is the father of Canaan.
Vs: 19--These are the three sons of Noah, and of them was the whole earth (area) overspread.-----Notice only 3 sons---symbolism for the sons of YAH.
Vs: 20--And Noah began to be a husbandman and he planted a vineyard.
Vs: 21--And he drank of the wine and was drunken; and he was uncovered in his tent.
Vs:22--And Ham, the father of Canaan saw the nakedness of his father and told his two brothers without.
Vs: 23--And Shem and Japhet took a garment and laid it upon both their shoulders and went backward and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward and they saw not their father's nakedness.
Vs: 24--And Noah awoke from his wine and knew what his younger son had done unto him.
Now; these verses are poor translations as tho some one did not know just what had taken place, but what is this all about?---"The nakedness of their father'? Here is one of those phrases again which means 'The nakedness of Noah's wife.--Here we are given the name of the child of this incest before the act, but in the old books this was Ham having intercourse with his own mother who had also drank too much of the wine, and this was family incest and forbidden, thus it would also be a shaming experience for Noah as well.
Vs: 25--And Noah said:--"Cursed be Canaan ( the child of incest) a servant of servantsshall he be unto his brethren."
Cursed--a child of Judgment for this was against the law--and this child altho still an Adamite would not be counted among the rulers of Israel, but would serve as servant to his brothers.
Vs: 26--And Noah Said:--Blessed be the LORD GOD of Shem, and Canaan shall be his servant.
Thus, Shem is now specified to lead this race forward, where as Canaan and his people would be servants of the sons of Shem.
Vs: 27--God shall enlarge Japheth and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem and Canaan shall also be his servant.
Vs: 28--And Noah lived after the flood 350 years.
Vs: 29--And all the days of Noah were 950 years and he died.
The old books seem to say that Ham had a different mother than did Seth
and Japhet whose mother was the daughter of Enoch. But do not swallow the theory that Ham was the father of the Negroes. Also, as for Noah, he was still alive when Abraham was born, and Terah sent Abram and his mother to live with Noah, and there he was trained in the Gospel of the Kingdom. Also remember that everybody on earth did not die in the flood at Noah's time.
The story goes that Ham went into the areas of Africa and then sired the Negro race, and that after the flood all the people on the earth came from the three sons of Noah.
In the first place, that is a Biological impossibility. In the second place the flood of Noah's time was not all over the earth. This was proved later, and if you are observant, then notice that Abraham, when grown, then came out on the plains of Shinar, as he followed YAHWEH'S instructions to leave Ur of the Chaldee and as he came out on the plains, there were all these men locked in battle. Where did they all come from? And where did Tidal King of the nations come from, but from the sunken continent of Atlantas, ---so he was no Adamite, was he???
Bible Study--Genesis Chapter 10-------------------------E.M.
Vs: 1--Now these are the generations (family history) of the sons of Noah:--Shem, Ham, and Japhet.
Now; we fing that Japhet is listed last here, but then the geneaology of Japhet is first. And as you search the history books you find the names of the sons and grandson of Japhet, especially do you find the names of Magog-- Gomer--and Tubal.
The name Japhet means enlargement, and according to history and to the Swift ministry, at least some of the Japhet people in their migration after coming out of the high country back into northern India, went to the east, and for a long time they held to their racial cleanliness, but further down the line of their geneaology, after the demine of Japhet, this line began to mix with the Asiatics, and there you find those names, and as always this mixture then comes against Christianity. Read the books of Harold Lamb and you will find these names, as you also find in Ezekiel 38.
Before they lost their identity Gomer according to Herodotus would begin the lineage of those known in Assyria as Kimmerians, the forerunners of the Celts. Thus, this grandson of Japhet did not mix the race, but some of the lineage would go on eastward and eventually be absorbed while some would go westward.
The sons of Magog are not mentioned here as these must have been absorbed first, where as the sons of Madai and Tubal also were absorbed in the east, and no longer listed in the generations (family history of Adam--Noal). The sons of Javan are listed and you find these names mostly in the west.
Noah and not doubt some of the children went on down the trail that other Adamites had taken, and Noah was living in Petra when Abraham and his mother came to live with Noah for protection.
Thus the sons and grandsons and daughters of each had a certain destiny to fulfill in this program of God, and no doubt it was carried out.
Verse 5--tells us that at least some of the children of Japhet's son Javan, went south and west, and we find traces of them on the isles of the Mediterranean.
The sons of Ham were Cush, and Mezraim, and Phut and Canaan, and you remember than Cush begat Nimrod.
Now, there was also a land called Cush in Africa, and perhaps that is what mixed up the translators, but there was a river Cush and a land of Cush there in the mid east Mizraim is associated with Africa, so the sons of Ham spread out and for a long, long time they held to their lineage.
Nimrod was the one who built the city of Ur of the Chaldeas and here Terah, a Shemite was his Prime Minister. Nimrod is quoted as being a 'Mighty hunter before the LORD.', and as Ham came into that area of the country, he learned how the Cainaanites had killed the ancient Adamites who came before him, and he set out to cleanse the area of these people.
Now; the son of Ham called Canaan, remember was the child of incest, but he was a white man and he established himself and his people were servants in the homes of the other Adamites, and they also developed a load for themselves as they increased, but they were not counted in the family history thereof.
Vs: 8--Cush begat Nimrod, he began to be a mighty one in the Earth.
Vs: 9--He was a mighty hunter before the LORD.
Vs: 10-The beginning of this kingdom of Nimrod was Babel, and Erech, Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.
Here we are seeing the work of Ham and his sons and grandsons as they spread out in their migrations.
Vs: 11--Out of this land of Shinar went a son--Asshur and he built the city of Nineveh, and the city of Rehoboth, and the city of Calah.
Vs: 12--And he also built Resin between Calah and Nineveh and it was a great city.
Vs: 13--And Mizraim begat Ludim, Anamim, and Lehabim and Naphtuhim.
Vs: 14--And Pathrusim, and Casluhim,
Vs: 15--And Canaan begat Sidon his first born and Heth.
Now;--Remember the son Heth------
Vs: 16--And then this lineage failed and they mixed with the Jebusites, the Amorites, and the Girgasites.
Vs: 17--And the Hivites and the Arkde, and the Sinite.
Vs: 18--And the Arvadite and the Zemarite and the Hamathite and afterwards the Canaanites, then spread out. This was the basis of the many people in that land.
Vs: 19--And the border of the Canaanites was from Sidon as thou comest to Gerar, unto Gaza as thou goest unto Sodom and Gomorrah, and Admah and Zeboim even unto Lasha.----Thus there were many people in this land of Palestine clear over to Lasha, and they were a mixed, mixed people and they would then absorb many of the Hamites as well, and of course the Cainites had been long in the land as well as Enoch and Job went into the land of Egypt, after their sojourn in Palestine where they built Oruseleum, the City of Peace. Then as Job and Enoch and that great company went down to Egypt to build the great monuments the Cainainites came in and destroyed these ancient peaceful people left in that area. thus this chapter 10 of Genesis covers a lot of history. Some of this will surface later.
Vs: 20--These then were the sons of Ham after their families, after their language, in their countries and their nations.
As you see the Ham line built many cities and nations before being absorbed. Some would also marry into the Shem line and be absorbed that way for they lived side by side for a long time.
Shem is now listed last of Noah's sons because of the fact that his generation (family history) now occupies the last of this book. Earlier as you noticed when mentioned with Ham and Japhet., he is listed first.
Vs: 21--Now unto Shem, the brother of Japhet, the elder, the father also of all the children of Eber (listed here so that you do not forget him when you find his name) to Shem thus were born children. His son's names were:--
Vs: 22--Elam, Asshur, Arphazad, and Lud, and Aram.
Elam is listed as the mountainous district east of Babylonia.
Vs: 23--The children of Aram, were Ux, Hul, and Gether and Mash.
Uz was the country of the Sabeans and the Chaldeans (Job 1:15-17--and Teman near Petra--Job 2:11--)
Vs: 24--And Arphaxad begat Salah, and Salah begat EBER (Heber from whom the word Hebrew came.)
Vs: 25--And to Eber were born two sons, the name of one was Peleg: for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan.
Now:--as we have told you before, here were two brothers , and the inheritance will now be split into two camps, the Shemites thru Peleg who carry on the story of the building of the Kingdom and the coming of YAHSHUA, and later Joktan will be merged with the Arabs, and at any time with the Shemites and that lineage will hold for a long time as you will later see.
Vs: 26--And Joktan begat Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth, and Jerah.
Vs: 27--And Hadoram and Uzal, and Diklah,
Vs: 28--And Obal and Abimael and Sheba.
Vs: 29--And Ophir and Havilah and Joab, all of these were the sons of Joktan.
Vs: 30--And their dwellings were from Mesha, as thou goest unto Sephar, a mount of the east.
Now:--the names--Sheba and Ophir especially help locate these children for remember the Queen of Sheba came much later to see Soloman and learn his wisdom.
But in the time of Abraham, you will see that there were great armies fighting on the plains of Shinas, fighting over the gold of Ophir.
We then believe that the children of Joktan went from the Persian Gulf area on along the coast and into what is now Arabia. Where as Peleg and his children would go into the area of Chaldea and the land wherein Abraham was born. This would bring the lineage of Shem on down to the time when YAHSUA would be born, and the other Adamites would play their part in this drama and then go to their rest.
Vs: 31--These are the families of the sons of Shem after their tongues, in their lands and after their nations.
Vs: 32--These are the familes of the sons of Noah after their generations in their nations, and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.
The word earth is here meaning an inhabited area.
Bible Study----Genesis Chapter 11-------------------------------E.M.
Vs: 1--And the whole earth was on language, and of one speech.
Now; this earth is again an inhabited area, and here were Adamites in large numbers.
Vs: 2--And it came to pass as they journeyed from the east that they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there. This plain of Shinar later became known as Babylonia.
Vs: 3--And they said one to another, "Go to, let us make brick and burn them thoroughly and they had brick for stone and slime had they for mortar.
Vs: 4--And they said:--"Let us build us a city, and a tower, whose top may reach unto the heavens, and let us make us a name lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
Now; these Adamites, here the Shemites and Hamites especially, did build a great city, and they set out to build a great tower and it was in those days called a Zuggernot, and on top of that tower was to be an observatory from which they could watch the heavens, for they knew that in the sky would come this sign signifying that the time of the Messiah was drawing nigh. They knew they were Adamites and they knew the promises, and they wanted to stay close together until their restoration, did they not?
But to build this great tower it would take lots of workmen, thus they were bringing in people from the surrounding areas to work on the tower. To protect himself and his people the king declared that only language of the land--Chaldean could be spoken by all these working on the tower so that no conspiracy could be planned.
Vs: 5--And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower these Adamites were building.
Vs: 6--and the LORD said: (to the Elohim) These people are as one, they all speak this one language, and nothing will be withheld from them, which they have imagined to do. Now; remember the Adamites were here to spread out over the earth and to build a kingdom, not just set in one place and wait to be rescued.
Vs: 7--"Go to, let us go down and confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech."
Now; according to Dr. Swift and the old books, there came a great earthquake and this tower which was almost built collapsed and everyone around there was scared and they began speaking in their own language, and then they remembered the kings orders, and they all scattered for their homes---
Vs: 8--so the LORD scattered them abroad from hence upon the face of the earth and they left off the building of the city which was called Babel, because of the confusion of speech.
Vs: 9--And the LORD did scatter them abroad upon the face of the earth.
Now; we will go back to the family history of Shem, this most important son of Noah.
Vs: 10--These are the generations of Shem (of his family history)., for Shem was 100 years old and he begat Asphaxad, this was two years after the flood. And here we are going back to the main purpose of this book--- the listing of the family history on down to Abraham, and beyond to YAHSHUA.
Vs: 11--And Shem lived after he begat Arphaxad 500 years and begat sons and daughters.
Vs: 12--And Arphaxad lived 35 years and begat Salah.
Vs: 13--And Arphaxad lived after he begat Salah 403 years and begat sons and daughters.
Vs: 14--and Salah lived 30 years and begat Eber (Heber).
Vs: 15--And Salah lived after he begat Eber 403 years and he begat sons and daughters.
Vs: 16--And Eber lived 34 years and begat Peleg.
Vs: 17--And Eber lived after he begat Peleg 430 years and begat sons and daughters.
Vs: 18--And Peleg lived 30 years and begat Reu.
Vs: 19--And Peleg lived after he begat Reu 209 years and begat sons and daughters.
Vs: 20--And Reu lived 32 years and begat Serug;
Vs: 21--And Reu lived 207 years after he begat Serug and begat sons and daughters.
Now: As you noticed the Adamites are having children at a younger age and not living as long.
Vs: 22--And Serug lived 30 years and begat Nahor;
Vs: 23--And Serug lived after he begat Nahor 200 years and begat sons and daughters.
Vs: 24--And Nahor lived 29 years and begat Terah.
And Terah, of course, was the father of Abraham and his name--Terah means Traveler.
Vs: 25--And Nahor lived after he begat Terah 119 years and begat sons and daughters.
Vs: 26--And Terah lived 70 years and begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran.
Vs: 27--These are the generations of Terah (or Terah's family history). Terah begat Abram, Nahor and Haran and Haran begat Lot.--
Vs: 28--And Haran died before his father, in the land where he was born. (in Ur of the Chaldees)
Vs: 29--And Abram and Nahor found themselves wives. The name of Abram's wife was Sarai; and the name of Nahor's wife, Milcah, the daughter of Haran, the father of Milcah, and the father of Iscah.
Vs: 30--But Sarai was barren; she had no child.
Vs: 31--And Terah took Abram his son and Lot the son of Haran, his son's son, and Sarai Abraham's wife and they went forth from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto the land of Haran and dwelt there.
Now; you are coming to the story of Abraham and the promise, and the blessing of seed, and his migrations out of the old land of Ur of the Chaldees. Terah was Prime Minister of Ur of the Chaldees under the Emporer Nimrod, a Hamite. Terah however was a Shemite. We have told you the story that the old books tell of how when Abram was born that there were signs in the sky, and to make it safe for Abram, then Terah sent Abram and his mother to the home of Noah at Petra for safety. Then when Abram came back to his fathers home he found all those gods of wood and stone, and broke them up, and this was one of the reasons they would then leave Ur of the Chaldees, because God had also decreed that they should do this for now Nimrod was beginning to bring strangers into Empire and to mix people of different races.
