FOREWORD

 

The Holy Bible is inspired by the Great God of creation, who has lived forever. Scripture cannot be broken, but it can only be properly understood when God reveals it. God the Father requires us to know Him and Jesus Christ, before He gives us eternal life. This does not mean that we are saved by knowledge alone, because God will not reveal the knowledge of Himself and Jesus Christ unless we are living our life as Jesus Christ lived His life on earth. This is according to bible morality. There is a dual requirement for eternal life; we must know, and obey God. We can have an incorrect zeal toward God, and we can worship God according to our way; which is incorrect. We must worship God according to His way.

 

Joh 17:3  "And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.


Rom 10:2
  For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge.

 

The correct knowledge of God's creation is part of the knowledge of the truth, and has been hidden from mankind. 

 

Ecc 3:11  He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.

 

Humans will have trouble believing the account of creation. They believe all the incorrect garbage about evolution. Humanity loves leaving God out of everything.

 

2Pe 3:5  For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water,

 

The creation we see about us is proof of the existence of God. Look up at the stars sometime, and ask yourself: how did they get there? We marvel about the construction of the pyramids, and no one would say that the pyramids just happened, but what about the construction of the universe?

 

Psa 14:1  The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, They have done abominable works, There is none who does good.

 

Psa 19:1  The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.

 

The true knowledge of God and Christ is a story of sadness, disappointment, and incredible zeal and determination: and ultimate happiness forever in the kingdom of God. There is an incredible power of evil in the universe, but good will ultimately triumph, thanks to God always being way ahead of the evil beings in thoughts, and actions. 

 

Psa 2:1  Why do the nations rage, And the people plot a vain thing?

Psa 2:2  The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying,

Psa 2:3  "Let us break Their bonds in pieces And cast away Their cords from us."

Psa 2:4  He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; The LORD shall hold them in derision.

 

Read the quoted verses carefully, and remember scripture cannot be broken, and God cannot lie. Notice that the bible is a stumbling block to those who will not hear. It is of vital importance to believe the bible. This requires us to get rid of the previous, incorrect beliefs that we have had. There is different knowledge for different eras of God's church, and the full truth of God and His love is revealed in this last era. 

 

The knowledge of God can only be revealed by God the Father, or Jesus Christ.

 

Mat 11:27  "All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.

 

No man can correctly write this book, but the truth will be written as God reveals it. 

 

Ecc 3:11  He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.

 

All things are to be restored. [The Elijah to come is a resurrected John the Baptist.]

 

Mat 17:11  Jesus answered and said to them, "Indeed, Elijah is coming first and will restore all things.

 

We need to be close to God to understand the things of God, so it’s a good idea to go before God in prayer, and ask Him to give understanding of the scriptures, and help us to believe the holy bible. 

 

To understand the truth of God's creation we must start at the beginning. Prepare for an incredible journey, but only believe the bible. Keep in mind that this knowledge is given in two stages. The knowledge that is missing in this book; will be given by God in the second book at a later stage. All this knowledge comes from the bible, as God reveals it. 

 

Eze 2:9  Now when I looked, there was a hand stretched out to me; and behold, a scroll of a book was in it.

Eze 2:10  Then He spread it before me; and there was writing on the inside and on the outside, and written on it were lamentations and mourning and woe.

 

Rev 10:2  He had a little book open in his hand. And he set his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land,

 

Rev 10:8  Then the voice which I heard from heaven spoke to me again and said, "Go, take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel who stands on the sea and on the earth."

 

The mystery of God is finished at the time of the second book. The book mentioned in Ezekiel gives the knowledge of creation to the present time, and the knowledge, and warning of the time of Jacob’s trouble.

 

Rev 10:7  but in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, the mystery of God would be finished, as He declared to His servants the prophets.

 

The bible is inspired by God. 

 

2Ti 3:16  All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,


 

CHAPTER 1

 

GOD THE FATHER

 

 

God the Father has inhabited eternity, He has always existed. The following verses show that there is one true God, one God who has lived forever. Jesus Christ is also God, but He is the Son of God prior to His human birth. Jesus Christ is not called a true God because He has not lived forever. 

 

There is one who has inhabited eternity. 

 

Isa 57:15  For thus says the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: "I dwell in the high and holy place, With him who has a contrite and humble spirit, To revive the spirit of the humble, And to revive the heart of the contrite ones

 

There is one Jehovah.

 

Psa 83:18  That they may know that You, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, Are the Most High over all the earth.

 

There is only one true God. Jesus Christ is God; but He is not regarded as a true God, because He has not always existed. 

 

Isa 44:8  Do not fear, nor be afraid; Have I not told you from that time, and declared it? You are My witnesses. Is there a God besides Me? Indeed there is no other Rock; I know not one.'"

 

Joh 17:3  "And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.

 

Jer 10:10  But the LORD is the true God; He is the living God and the everlasting King. At His wrath the earth will tremble, And the nations will not be able to endure His indignation.

 

Jesus gives the understanding of the true God. This verse is interpreted slightly incorrectly as other verses show that Jesus Christ is not the true God. ‘By’ instead of ‘in’ would make it correct. We may know the true God by Jesus Christ. 

 

1Jn 5:20  And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in[by] His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.

 

Humans believe all types of garbage about creation and eternity; but they will not believe in, or believe the Great God of creation. God does not mince words: If you do not believe that there is a God, you are a fool. 

 

Psa 14:1  The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, They have done abominable works, There is none who does good.

 

One of the easiest things to know is that God the Father has lived forever. There is no other alternative. There is no record of what God has been doing for all eternity, but God has planned for forever in the future, so it is reasonable to assume, in a simplified statement, that God has used forever in the past to plan for forever in the future. It may be a simplified statement, but it speaks of the Great God of creation; who is completely unlimited in mind, and strength. 

 

Psa 16:11  You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

 

Isa 9:7  Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

 

Evolutionists, [fools in God's eyes] are forced to admit that matter has always existed, and life has either always existed, or has started by electricity; or some such garbage. It is the Great God who has always existed. He made matter, and He made life.

 

Jer 32:27  "Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me?

 

God the Father is the YHVH [Jehovah] of the Old Testament. This name is 3068 in Strong's Concordance, and is almost always translated as ‘Lord’. Jehovah is mentioned over 5000 times in the Old Testament and always refers to God the Father, the God who has lived forever. [The pronunciation of YHVH is unsure.] 

 

God the Father is the true saviour. The following verses need to be understood as everyone knows that Jesus Christ is also our saviour. The answer is simple; it is God the Father who has planned for human beings to ultimately live forever in the kingdom of God. The death of Jesus Christ for our sins is part of God's plan for all mankind. In the overall plan of salvation: God the Father alone is our ultimate redeemer. There is no way to this salvation, but by Christ; so Christ is also our saviour in accordance with the plan of God. Christ’s crucifixion and cruel death is part of the overall plan of salvation for mankind. 

 

Isa 43:3  For I am the LORD your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I gave Egypt for your ransom, Ethiopia and Seba in your place.

 

Isa 43:11  I, even I, am the LORD, And besides Me there is no savior.

 

Hos 13:4  "Yet I am the LORD your God Ever since the land of Egypt, And you shall know no God but Me; For there is no Savior besides Me.

 

Jud 1:25  To God our Savior, Who alone is wise, Be glory and majesty, Dominion and power, Both now and forever. Amen.

 

The following verses prove that the Father is the overall saviour. Jesus’ death on the cross is absolutely essential for humans to attain eternal life; and His death is part of the plan of the overall salvation of mankind. 

 

Read this verse carefully; it is God the Father who has a plan of salvation for all mankind. That plan includes Christ’s cruel death, so that through Christ we might have salvation. It is the Father who gives us eternal life through the death of His Son.

 

1Jn 4:14  And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world.

 

1Jn 5:11  And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.

 

There is One True God that is the Father it is not Jesus Christ.

 

Joh 17:3  "And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.

 

God the Father's face cannot be looked upon by humans.

 

Exo 33:20  But He said, "You cannot see My face; for no man shall see Me, and live."

 

The Father appears in a vision, in a cloud, in a whirlwind, in a fire, in a dream, or invisible. Notice the following scriptures which show how the Father can appear to man.


In a vision:

 

Isa 1:1  The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah.

 

The following verse is a continuation of the vision in chapter one.

 

Isa 6:1  In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple.

 

In a cloud:

 

Exo 19:9  And the LORD said to Moses, "Behold, I come to you in the thick cloud, that the people may hear when I speak with you, and believe you forever." So Moses told the words of the people to the LORD.

 

In a whirlwind:

 

Job 38:1  Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said:

 

In a fire:

 

Deu 5:4  "The LORD talked with you face to face on the mountain from the midst of the fire.

 

In a dream:

 

1Ki 3:5  At Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night; and God said, "Ask! What shall I give you?"

 

Invisible:

 

1Ti 1:17  Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

 

God the Father alone has inhabited eternity; He has one Son who He gave to be born of a woman. God the Father is; all powerful, all knowing, and all loving. God is not mocked, and will eventually bring everyone to judgement. Humanity may appear to be prospering, by lying, and coveting, and committing adultery, and blaspheming, etc. but God will triumph at the appointed time. God the Father will show mercy, but He will not compromise His laws.

 

Deu 5:9  you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me,

Deu 5:10  but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.

 

Gal 6:7  Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.

 

As the true knowledge of God the Father is revealed: we will come to appreciate His great love, and patience, and forgiveness, and also His incredible zeal. 

 

The truth of God's creation begins with the knowledge that the Great God of creation [God the Father] has inhabited eternity alone.


 

CHAPTER 2
 

JESUS CHRIST

 

 

Jesus Christ is God, but He is not a true God in that He has not inhabited eternity. The scriptures are very clear that only one God has lived forever. Jesus Christ is from the beginning. Beginning means commencement, it does not mean forever.

 

1Jn 1:1  That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the Word of life;

1Jn 1:2  the life was manifested, and we have seen, and bear witness, and declare to you that eternal life which was with the Father and was manifested to us;

 

Joh 1:1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

 

Jesus Christ is the Son of God, from the beginning. Read these verses carefully, to see what they are actually saying. God made the worlds ‘by His Son’.

 

Heb 1:1  God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets,

Heb 1:2  has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds;

 

Christ was the first born of all creation. He was born to the Father before anything else existed.

 

Col 1:15  He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.

 

God sent His Son to be born of a woman.

 

Gal 4:4  But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law,

 

Christ was the Son of God before His physical birth.

 

Pro 30:4  Who has ascended into heaven, or descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in a garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son's name, If you know?

 

Every mention of Christ in the bible agrees that He was from the beginning, and is the Son of God. ‘Everlasting’ seems to mean forever, but the bible gives the meaning.

 

Mic 5:2  "But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, Though you are little among the thousands of Judah, Yet out of you shall come forth to Me The One to be Ruler in Israel, Whose goings forth are from of old, From everlasting."

 

Pro 8:23  I have been established from everlasting, From the beginning, before there was ever an earth.

 

‘Begotten’ should be ‘born’ they beheld His glory as the only born of the Father. 

 

Joh 1:14  And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

 

Jesus Christ was born ‘in the beginning’. This was a spiritual birth [Jesus Christ] from a spiritual parent [God the Father.] At the time of writing there is no knowledge of a woman mentioned in this birth. There is not the slightest hint in the bible that Christ has lived forever. 

 

Jesus said His Father is greater than Him.

 

Joh 14:28  "You have heard Me say to you, 'I am going away and coming back to you.' If you loved Me, you would rejoice because I said, 'I am going to the Father,' for My Father is greater than I.

 

Christ is equal to the Father in this way: He is equal as a Son is equal to a Father.

 

Php 2:6  who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God,

 

Joh 5:18  Therefore the Jews sought all the more to kill Him, because He not only broke the Sabbath, but also said that God was His Father, making Himself equal with God.

 

Jesus loved righteousness and hated sin. ‘Christ’ means ‘anointed’ God's Son has been anointed above every one because of His love for righteousness, and His willingness to suffer and die for all mankind, and to fulfil the plan of God the Father.

 

Heb 1:8  But to the Son He says: "Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your Kingdom.

Heb 1:9  You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of gladness more than Your companions."

 

Jesus Christ was a separate individual, and was capable of living righteously, or unrighteously. It was His choice to follow righteousness. Christ had to learn obedience. Christ never disobeyed God the Father, but He came to understand obedience through His physical suffering.

 

Heb 5:8  though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered.

 

Php 2:8  And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.

Php 2:9  Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name,

 

Jesus Christ is the Morning Star.

 

Rev 22:16  "I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star."

 

Jesus Christ qualified to be over all things: He also paid the penalty for our sins, so that we may have eternal life. 

 

The bible constantly affirms that there is one true God. The teaching, during the time of Mr. Armstrong was that one God meant two Gods. One scripture that was quoted was: 

 

Joh 10:30  "I and My Father are one."

 

This is, of course, a reference to the fact that Christ came to do His Father's will, and is completely united with His Father. They are totally in agreement. They have the same heart and mind. This does not say that ‘one God’ means ‘two Gods.’ 

 

Joh 17:3  "And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.

 

The above verse means exactly what it says, there is one true God; which means that Jesus Christ is not a true God: He is a born God. It also means that the knowledge of the true God and Jesus Christ is a requirement of eternal life. 

 

Jesus Christ is the Son of God from the beginning: there were more powerful beings than Christ prior to Him qualifying to be put over all things. This seems almost unbelievable but Daniel Chapter 10 explains.

 

DANIEL CHAPTER 10.
 

Daniel saw a man, and described him.

 

Dan 10:5  I lifted my eyes and looked, and behold, a certain man clothed in linen, whose waist was girded with gold of Uphaz!

Dan 10:6  His body was like beryl, his face like the appearance of lightning, his eyes like torches of fire, his arms and feet like burnished bronze in color, and the sound of his words like the voice of a multitude.

 

The following description shows that the man that Daniel saw was Jesus Christ.

 

Rev 2:18  "And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write, 'These things says the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet like fine brass:

 

Rev 1:13  and in the midst of the seven lampstands One like the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to the feet and girded about the chest with a golden band.

Rev 1:14  His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes like a flame of fire;

Rev 1:15  His feet were like fine brass, as if refined in a furnace, and His voice as the sound of many waters;

 

The following verse gives more insight to the knowledge of Jesus Christ: He was not as powerful as the prince of Persia, and needed help from Michael; who was obviously sent by the Father for that reason. 

 

This verse also shows that the prince of Persia is a devil, or a powerful created being, as no human could withstand the Son of God.

 

Dan 10:13  "But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia.

 

Jesus had come to Daniel to reveal end time events.

 

Dan 10:14  "Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision refers to many days yet to come."

 

It was Jesus Christ [God the Word] who brought down Persia, and established Greece.

 

Dan 10:20  Then he said, "Do you know why I have come to you? And now I must return to fight with the prince of Persia; and when I have gone forth, indeed the prince of Greece will come.

 

It was Christ who established the Medes. 

 

Dan 11:1  "Also in the first year of Darius the Mede, I, even I, stood up to confirm and strengthen him.)

 

The mystery of the writing on the wall is now understood. God the Father had prophesied many years previously that He would loose the loins of kings.

 

Isa 45:1  "Thus says the LORD to His anointed, To Cyrus, whose right hand I have held; To subdue nations before him And loose the armor of kings, To open before him the double doors, So that the gates will not be shut:

Isa 45:2  'I will go before you And make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze And cut the bars of iron.

 

The above verses were fulfilled at the time of Daniel.

 

Dan 5:6  Then the king's countenance changed, and his thoughts troubled him, so that the joints of his hips were loosened and his knees knocked against each other.

 

Dan 6:28  So this Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian.

 

It is obvious that to set up Darius and Cyrus; the Kingdom of the Medes: Christ had to bring down Babylon. It is God the Father who is in charge of the Kingdoms of this world.

 

Dan 4:17  'This decision is by the decree of the watchers, And the sentence by the word of the holy ones, In order that the living may know That the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, Gives it to whomever He will, And sets over it the lowest of men.'

 

Jesus Christ was extremely active prior to being born as a human. He was the tree of life in Eden, He was with the Father on Mt. Horeb when the Ten Commandments were given, He went with the Israelites through the wilderness, He set up and brought down the main kingdoms of this earth, sometimes with the help of the archangel Michael. Jesus Christ is the bright Morning Star: He has qualified to be in charge of everything, and everyone, except God the Father, for all eternity.

 

1Co 15:27  For "He has put all things under His feet." But when He says "all things are put under Him," it is evident that He who put all things under Him is excepted.

 

Luk 1:31  "And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name JESUS.

Luk 1:32  "He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David.

Luk 1:33  "And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end."

 

Jesus Christ had glory with the Father, prior to being born as a human.

 

Joh 17:5  "And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was.

 

He had glory and power after being resurrected.

 

Rom 1:3  concerning His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who was born of the seed of David according to the flesh,

Rom 1:4  and declared to be the Son of God with power according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead.

 

Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God; He loves righteousness, and willingly laid down His life for mankind. He has been given eminence above all things by God the Father.

 

Heb 2:8  You have put all things in subjection under his feet." For in that He put all in subjection under him, He left nothing that is not put under him. But now we do not yet see all things put under him.

 

Rev 22:16  "I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star."

 

Jesus Christ was born of God the Father in the beginning. God the Father is the true God, because He has inhabited eternity. 
Jesus Christ is God, but has not inhabited eternity, and therefore cannot be called the true God. This title belongs to God the Father alone.


 

CHAPTER 3

 

THE SONS OF GOD

 

 

By using the process of elimination, and simply believing the bible, it is easy to know who the sons of God are. 

 

The sons of God existed at the time of creation. 

 

Job 38:7  When the morning stars sang together, And all the sons of God shouted for joy?

 

In the following verse, notice the meaning of the words listed in the Strong's Concordance for God and Lord. The sons of God [Elohiym] came before the Lord [Jehovah]. 

 

Job 1:6  Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them.

 

Angels are not sons of God.

 

Heb 1:5  For to which of the angels did He ever say: "You are My Son, Today I have begotten You"? And again: "I will be to Him a Father, And He shall be to Me a Son"?

 

Heb 1:14  Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?

 

Angels in heaven do not marry. 

 

Mat 22:30  "For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels of God in heaven.

 

The sons of God do marry.

 

Gen 6:2  that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.

 

The above verses show simply and clearly that sons of God are not angels, and they are not human beings. 

The sons of ‘Elohiym’ presented themselves to ‘Jehovah’. 

 

Job 1:6  Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them.

 

Elohiym is a general name for God, and can include the Father; but it is very clear that the Father has only one Son. [Only begotten can mean only born.]

 

Joh 1:14  And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

 

1Jn 4:9  In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.

 

In Job 1 v 6 above: the word translated as Lord is Jehovah [Jhvh] and refers to God the Father only.  Jehovah can never mean the word or Christ.

 

Psa 83:18  That they may know that You, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, Are the Most High over all the earth.

 

The process of elimination proves that the sons of God are not humans, as they were in existence at creation. They are not angels, as angels do not marry. Angels are not sons of God.

 

They are not sons of the Father. 

 

The sons of God are the sons, or grandsons, or descendants of Jesus Christ; there is no other option. This also makes them the descendants of God the Father. ‘Children’ in the next verse includes near descendants and grandsons. 

 

Psa 82:6  I said, "You are gods, And all of you are children of the Most High.

 

The Morning Stars were also present at creation. 

 

Job 38:7  When the morning stars sang together, And all the sons of God shouted for joy?

 

Jesus Christ is a Morning star.

 

Rev 22:16  "I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star."

 

Lucifer is a Morning Star also. The correct translation for Lucifer is Morning Star. Morning Star, son of the Morning [Jesus Christ.] Lucifer is the son of Jesus Christ.

 

Isa 14:12  "How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, You who weakened the nations!

 

The sons of God have affected mankind greatly, and are responsible for most of the evil in the world. There is much more to learn of the sons of God, as we continue with the meaning of life. Most of the sons of God eventually die, even though they are Gods. 

 

Psa 82:1  God stands in the congregation of the mighty; He judges among the gods.

 

Psa 82:6  I said, "You are gods, And all of you are children of the Most High.

Psa 82:7  But you shall die like men, And fall like one of the princes."

 

Jer 10:11  Thus you shall say to them: "The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth shall perish from the earth and from under these heavens."

 

Isaiah 14 is about Lucifer: the son of Jesus Christ. He will suffer forever. Lucifer’s children will be destroyed.

 

Isa 14:20  You will not be joined with them in burial, Because you have destroyed your land And slain your people. The brood of evildoers shall never be named.

Isa 14:21  Prepare slaughter for his children Because of the iniquity of their fathers, Lest they rise up and possess the land, And fill the face of the world with cities."

 

The sons of God figure prominently in the history of mankind. They married the daughters of men, prior to Noah’s flood, and their children were evil.

 

Gen 6:2  that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.

Gen 6:3  And the LORD said, "My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years."

Gen 6:4  There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.

Gen 6:5  Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

 

Notice also that the serpent has seed or children.

 

Gen 3:15  And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel."

 

The truth about who the sons of God really are is disturbing to say the least and could be difficult for some to accept, but we must love believe and accept the knowledge of the truth to be firstfruits in God's kingdom.  If we pray about the new knowledge and ask God to guide us into all truth, He will do that for us, if we have the right attitude.



 
 

CHAPTER 4

 

ANGELS


 

Angels are created beings; they are not sons of God. Angels minister to the heirs of salvation.

 

Heb 1:5  For to which of the angels did He ever say: "You are My Son, Today I have begotten You"? And again: "I will be to Him a Father, And He shall be to Me a Son"?

Heb 1:6  But when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says: "Let all the angels of God worship Him."

Heb 1:7  And of the angels He says: "Who makes His angels spirits And His ministers a flame of fire."

 

Heb 1:13  But to which of the angels has He ever said: "Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool"?

Heb 1:14  Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?

 

Some angels sinned and are imprisoned in the bottomless pit or hell or Tartarus.

 

2Pe 2:4  For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment;

 

Jud 1:6  And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day;


Cherubs are created. 

 

Eze 28:14  "You were the anointed cherub who covers; I established you; You were on the holy mountain of God; You walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones.

Eze 28:15  You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, Till iniquity was found in you.

 

A cherub, known as the king or prince of Tyrus, was the greatest being that God has created. This cherub turned bad. His name may be ‘Tyrus.’

 

Eze 28:12  "Son of man, take up a lamentation for the king of Tyre, and say to him, 'Thus says the Lord GOD: "You were the seal of perfection, Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.

Eze 28:13  You were in Eden, the garden of God; Every precious stone was your covering: The sardius, topaz, and diamond, Beryl, onyx, and jasper, Sapphire, turquoise, and emerald with gold. The workmanship of your timbrels and pipes Was prepared for you on the day you were created.

Eze 28:14  "You were the anointed cherub who covers; I established you; You were on the holy mountain of God; You walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones.

Eze 28:15  You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, Till iniquity was found in you.

 

Cherubim have always been a bit of an enigma. We have thought that a cherub was one being with four heads. This is incorrect; a Cherubim is made up of four separate created beings. The cherubs on the Ark of the Covenant have their faces facing one another. There are two Cherubim with their faces looking at each other. This would be impossible if each one had four faces.

 

Exo 25:18  "And you shall make two cherubim of gold; of hammered work you shall make them at the two ends of the mercy seat.

 

Exo 25:20  "And the cherubim shall stretch out their wings above, covering the mercy seat with their wings, and they shall face one another; the faces of the cherubim shall be toward the mercy seat.

 

There are four cherubs each with four heads in Ezek. Ch. 1. Verse 6 can only be understood by comparing all scriptures on the subject. A cherub consists of four different beings, each being with four wings. 

 

Eze 1:5  Also from within it came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had the likeness of a man.

 

The following verse can be easily misunderstood. 

 

Eze 1:6  Each one had four faces, and each one had four wings.

 

The four beasts before God's throne; make up one cherub, and each one of the four had one face. Each one of the four separate Cherubim had four wings. Other scriptures verify this. 

 

The cherubs in Ezekiel had four wings each. The beasts before the throne have six wings around them. 

 

Rev 4:6  Before the throne there was a sea of glass, like crystal. And in the midst of the throne, and around the throne, were four living creatures full of eyes in front and in back.

Rev 4:7  The first living creature was like a lion, the second living creature like a calf, the third living creature had a face like a man, and the fourth living creature was like a flying eagle.

Rev 4:8  The four living creatures, each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within. And they do not rest day or night, saying: "Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!"

 

The Cherubs described in Revelation; are standing in the exact formation of the Cherubs in Ezek. Ch. 1. They are standing with their backs to each other, and their heads facing outwards. Each has a wing around the Cherub of either side of them: Thus they have six wings about them. 

 

Notice in the following verses; the Cherubs are described with two heads. Read carefully; the two cherubs each have a palm tree between them.

 

Eze 41:18  And it was made with cherubim and palm trees, a palm tree between cherub and cherub. Each cherub had two faces,

Eze 41:19  so that the face of a man was toward a palm tree on one side, and the face of a young lion toward a palm tree on the other side; thus it was made throughout the temple all around.

 

Herein unfolds the mystery of the Cherubim. A cherub in a group of four, as described by Ezekiel, and also described in Revelation, is called a Cherub. Two of the beings in a Cherub, as described above, are also called a Cherub; and one of the group on his own is also called a cherub. Each scripture on Cherubs has to be read in context. 

 

The Cherubs on the Ark of the Covenant consisted of one being on either end, with their respective faces toward each other. They are called two Cherubs.

 

Exo 37:8  one cherub at one end on this side, and the other cherub at the other end on that side. He made the cherubim at the two ends of one piece with the mercy seat.

Exo 37:9  The cherubim spread out their wings above, and covered the mercy seat with their wings. They faced one another; the faces of the cherubim were toward the mercy seat.

 

Ezekiel spent a lot of effort describing Cherubs in Ch. 1 and again in Ch.10. There is an extremely important reason for the next verse.

 

Eze 10:20  This is the living creature I saw under the God of Israel by the River Chebar, and I knew they were cherubim.

 

God's end time church will have to know what Cherubim look like; it is of vital importance. 

 

God the Father comes to earth riding on a Cherub.

 

Psa 18:10  And He rode upon a cherub, and flew; He flew upon the wings of the wind.

 

God the Father comes on a throne, carried by Cherubim. God cannot be directly looked upon. Ezekiel saw the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord.

 

Eze 9:3  Now the glory of the God of Israel had gone up from the cherub, where it had been, to the threshold of the temple. And He called to the man clothed with linen, who had the writer's inkhorn at his side;

 

Eze 1:26  And above the firmament over their heads was the likeness of a throne, in appearance like a sapphire stone; on the likeness of the throne was a likeness with the appearance of a man high above it.

Eze 1:27  Also from the appearance of His waist and upward I saw, as it were, the color of amber with the appearance of fire all around within it; and from the appearance of His waist and downward I saw, as it were, the appearance of fire with brightness all around.

Eze 1:28  Like the appearance of a rainbow in a cloud on a rainy day, so was the appearance of the brightness all around it. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. So when I saw it, I fell on my face, and I heard a voice of One speaking.

 

Cherubim have flames enfolding. 

 

Eze 1:4  Then I looked, and behold, a whirlwind was coming out of the north, a great cloud with raging fire engulfing itself; and brightness was all around it and radiating out of its midst like the color of amber, out of the midst of the fire.

 

Isa 66:15  For behold, the LORD will come with fire And with His chariots, like a whirlwind, To render His anger with fury, And His rebuke with flames of fire.

 

The false prophet brings down flames from heaven. People are deceived. God's genuine servants will not be deceived.

 

Rev 13:13  He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.

Rev 13:14  And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived.

 

God's people will know which is God the Father and which is the false prophet. One of the reasons will be that God's people will know what Cherubs look like. 

 

Michael is an Archangel [chief angel.]

 

Jud 1:9  Yet Michael the archangel, in contending with the devil, when he disputed about the body of Moses, dared not bring against him a reviling accusation, but said, "The Lord rebuke you!"

 

Michael is extremely powerful and stands up for Israel.

 

Dan 10:13  "But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia.

 

Dan 10:21  "But I will tell you what is noted in the Scripture of Truth. (No one upholds me against these, except Michael your prince.

 

Dan 12:1  "At that time Michael shall stand up, The great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people; And there shall be a time of trouble, Such as never was since there was a nation, Even to that time. And at that time your people shall be delivered, Every one who is found written in the book.

 

Gabriel is an angel who stands in the presence of God.

 

Luk 1:26  Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth,

 

Luk 1:19  And the angel answered and said to him, "I am Gabriel, who stands in the presence of God, and was sent to speak to you and bring you these glad tidings.


 

CHAPTER 5

 

THE ORIGINAL CREATION

 

 

We have heard for years; that remains of man, and animals dating over thousands and thousands of years old have been located. But we have thought that man is only 6000 years old.  So how is it that human bones have been found and dated to be a lot older than that? Let’s look at what the bible says on this subject. 

 

A careful study of Genesis, and other books, will show that there was an original creation of man dating back to the days of the dinosaurs.  This creation of man degenerated into sexual perversion and rebellion against God. They were destroyed along with the surface of the earth. 

 

Modern day man was created and the earth renewed some 6000 years ago. 

 

Let’s look at the Genesis accounts on the above and compare the differences. 

 

Gen 1 describes the creation of prehistoric man up to and including Gen 2 v 4. This is the original creation.

 

Gen 1:1  In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Gen 1:2  The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

Gen 1:3  Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light.

Gen 1:4  And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness.

Gen 1:5  God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.

Gen 1:6  Then God said, "Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters."

Gen 1:7  Thus God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so.

Gen 1:8  And God called the firmament Heaven. So the evening and the morning were the second day.

Gen 1:9  Then God said, "Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear"; and it was so.

Gen 1:10  And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters He called Seas. And God saw that it was good.

Gen 1:11  Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth"; and it was so.

Gen 1:12  And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

Gen 1:13  So the evening and the morning were the third day.

Gen 1:14  Then God said, "Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years;

Gen 1:15  "and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth"; and it was so.

Gen 1:16  Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also.

Gen 1:17  God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth,

Gen 1:18  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.

Gen 1:19  So the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

Gen 1:20  Then God said, "Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens."

Gen 1:21  So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

Gen 1:22  And God blessed them, saying, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth."

Gen 1:23  So the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

Gen 1:24  Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind"; and it was so.

Gen 1:25  And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

Gen 1:26  Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."

Gen 1:27  So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

Gen 1:28  Then God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth."

Gen 1:29  And God said, "See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food.

Gen 1:30  "Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food"; and it was so.

Gen 1:31  Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

 

The following four verses show clearly a winding up of God's original creation. 

 

Gen 2:1  Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished.

Gen 2:2  And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done.

Gen 2:3  Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.

Gen 2:4  This is the history of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,

 


THE RENEWAL AND RECREATION

 

Gen 2 v 5 to verse 15 is the renewing of the earth, and the re-creation of animals, and the creation of Adam and Eve. 

 

Comparing briefly the Adamic creation to the prehistoric. There is no record of sea creatures being created at the second creation. Perhaps they were not destroyed when God destroyed the face of the earth. This would explain why some creatures like crocodiles may have carried over from the destruction of the first creation. Also the Loch Ness monster, and some other mythological monsters, may have been dinosaur’s that somehow survived the catastrophe. 

 

A careful examination of the above verses will show the differences of the original creation and the re-creation. 

 

Notice also that in Gen 1v12 there was grass and herbs on the earth. A stark contrast to Gen 2 v 5 which states that there were no plants on the earth. 

 

Gen 1:12  And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

 

Notice there were no plants. 

 

Gen 2:5  before any plant of the field was in the earth and before any herb of the field had grown. For the LORD God had not caused it to rain on the earth, and there was no man to till the ground;

 

Gen 1 v 27 shows man and woman created, but in Gen 2 v 5 man has not been created. 

 

Gen 1:27  So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

 

Gen 2:5  before any plant of the field was in the earth and before any herb of the field had grown. For the LORD God had not caused it to rain on the earth, and there was no man to till the ground;

 

In Gen 1 v 27 male and female were created together in the image of God, female was not made from the male rib in the original creation.  In Gen 2 v 22 Eve is made from a rib from Adam. 

 

Gen 1:27  So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

 

Gen 2:21  And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place.

Gen 2:22  Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man.

 

Dinosaurs are mentioned in Gen.1 v 21. Great sea creatures should be translated [great land and sea monsters.] We know dinosaurs existed, and we know God created everything. We should expect to see them mentioned in the bible. 

 

Gen 1:21  So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

 

The next verse is a dual statement. All flesh, except those on the ark, was destroyed in Noah’s flood. The earth's surface was not destroyed at this time. Notice one flood destroyed all flesh, and one flood destroyed the earth. Other scriptures show that all flesh died with the destruction of the surface of the earth.  There are two floods mentioned in the next verse, the first flood is flesh being cut off and the second flood is the earth being destroyed.

 

Gen 9:11  "Thus I establish My covenant with you: Never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of the flood; never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth."

 

The following scripture is about the original creation which was destroyed because of disobedience with a flood. This flood also destroyed the earth. 

 

Job 22:15  Will you keep to the old way Which wicked men have trod,

Job 22:16  Who were cut down before their time, Whose foundations were swept away by a flood?

Job 22:17  They said to God, 'Depart from us! What can the Almighty do to them?'

 

The following verses are talking about the beginning of creation. Humans refuse to believe the knowledge of the first creation. 

 

2Pe 3:4  and saying, "Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation."

2Pe 3:5  For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water,

2Pe 3:6  by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water.

 

Psalm 104 gives an overview of the first creation, and destruction of the first creation. 

 

This is the original creation. This is not Noah’s flood. God did not do any creating after Noah’s flood. God did not renew the face of the earth after Noah’s flood. Leviathan is a large sea monster. God destroyed all animal and human life from the original creation. He then recreated mankind, [Adam and Eve] and modern day land animals, [without dinosaurs.]

 

Psa 104:26  There the ships sail about; There is that Leviathan Which You have made to play there.

Psa 104:27  These all wait for You, That You may give them their food in due season.

Psa 104:28  What You give them they gather in; You open Your hand, they are filled with good.

Psa 104:29  You hide Your face, they are troubled; You take away their breath, they die and return to their dust.

Psa 104:30  You send forth Your Spirit, they are created; And You renew the face of the earth.

 

The reason that God destroyed His original creation; is because men and women became sodomites and lesbians and accepted every evil that God forbids. 

 

Romans chapter 1 v 18 to 32 gives the account of humanity degenerating. Humans in the first creation degenerated to what we call cavemen, before God destroyed them. HUMANITY DID NOT EVOLVE FROM PREHISTORIC MAN. Humans in the first creation degenerated morally into what we call prehistoric man. 

 

The humans in the first creation became morally depraved. Modern day Israel, along with the rest of the world, are once again accepting every evil that God forbids. Homosexuality and lesbianism are well accepted, now same sex marriage is legal in most countries of the world, there is complete moral depravity. Adultery, incest, child sex, and bestiality are commonplace. Some tribes of the earth are well advanced in sexual perversions, and they even are starting to look like cavemen. Child sex with both boys and girls is common in these tribes. It is also common in the first world countries; with paedophile rings on the internet etc. 

 

GOD WILL PUNISH THIS WORLD, WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT, WITH ABSOLUTE DEVESTATION. 

 

Read carefully what happened to the first creation: We are heading in the same direction, and the following scripture proves it will happen.

 

Ecc 1:10  Is there anything of which it may be said, "See, this is new"? It has already been in ancient times before us.

 

This is the first creation.

 

Rom 1:18  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,

Rom 1:19  because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.

Rom 1:20  For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,

Rom 1:21  because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.

Rom 1:22  Professing to be wise, they became fools,

Rom 1:23  and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man; and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.

Rom 1:24  Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves,

Rom 1:25  who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

Rom 1:26  For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature.

Rom 1:27  Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

Rom 1:28  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;

Rom 1:29  being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers,

Rom 1:30  backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

Rom 1:31  undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful;

Rom 1:32  who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

 

Every thinking person who reads this article will know that most things are wrong in this world. The judges give minor sentences to major crimes. Prisoners are treated much better than old or poor people. Blasphemy is spoken in everyday language. Physical beauty is put far above morality, and obedience to God. Foul language is used on most radio stations, and television. 

 

False gods are now accepted freely in the English speaking countries. The sexual perversion of homosexuality is well accepted.  It is now legal for them to get married, and bring up children in this unnatural relationship, thus continuing the perversion. 

 

Every evil that God forbids: is accepted. God the Father has given humanity a free reign to live as they wish, but He will eventually step in and punish humanity, and then take control, before they destroy themselves.


 

CHAPTER 6

 

ADAM AND EVE

 

 

God had given mankind the knowledge of God in the first creation, which means that they had the Holy Spirit of life, and had eternal life inherent. They had to persevere to the end to obtain eternal life. 

 

Compare these two scriptures.

 

Joh 17:3  "And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.

 

Rom 1:21  because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.

 

They disregarded eternal life, and blasphemed God's Holy Spirit.

 

Rom 1:32  who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

 

Adam and Eve were created neutral, and were offered eternal life. They did not accept eternal life, and were not given the Holy Spirit of life. Adam and Eve could not blaspheme God's spirit, because they were not given it. Christ’s sacrifice for sins would eventually be available to them, and subsequently, all mankind since Adam. [This does not include devils who have already blasphemed God's spirit eons ago, and are not offered salvation.] 

 

Adam was forbidden to eat of the tree of good and evil. He could have chosen to eat of the tree of life, but did not. Adam died spiritually the moment he ate of the tree of good and evil. From that time: mankind’s only hope was the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

 

Gen 2:16  And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, "Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat;

Gen 2:17  "but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die."

 

If God had given mankind the spirit of life, as He did in the old creation; they would have degenerated into sexual perversion with no hope of salvation: just as humans did in the first creation. Modern day Israel is accepting every evil, but they are not blaspheming the spirit of God, as they do not have it, as the people in the first creation did. God will intervene before mankind, once again degenerates into complete perversion. 

 

Adam and Eve became husband and wife, and set a precedent for mankind.

 

Gen 2:24  Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

 

Adam and Eve were told to cleave to each other. Adultery and sodomy is punishable by death in God's law.

 

Exo 20:14  "You shall not commit adultery.

 

Lev 20:10  'The man who commits adultery with another man's wife, he who commits adultery with his neighbor's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress, shall surely be put to death.

 

Lev 20:13  'If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.

 

The tree of the knowledge of good and evil was the sons of God who have turned bad. They still have some good, but also have evil. To eat of these trees is to live as they live: to touch them is to have sex with them.

 

Gen 3:3  "but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, 'You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.'"

 

Adam and Eve were naked and unashamed before eating of the tree.

 

Gen 2:25  And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

 

After eating of the tree, they were ashamed.

 

Gen 3:7  Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings.

Gen 3:8  And they heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.

Gen 3:9  Then the LORD God called to Adam and said to him, "Where are you?"

Gen 3:10  So he said, "I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself."

 

‘Touch’ in the following verse can mean ‘to lie with a woman’. 

 

Gen 3:3  "but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, 'You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.'"

 

To eat Christ, is to live by Christ: to eat the devil, is to live by the devil.

 

Joh 6:57  "As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me.

 

‘Pleasing’ means desirable. ‘Desired’ means ‘lusted’. Eve lusted after the sons of God, and ate of them. Adam also followed suit.

 

Gen 3:6  So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate.

 

‘Deceived or beguiled’ means ‘seduce morally’.

 

Gen 3:13  And the LORD God said to the woman, "What is this you have done?" The woman said, "The serpent deceived me, and I ate."

 

The serpent is one of the sons of God, he has seed.

 

Gen 3:14  So the LORD God said to the serpent: "Because you have done this, You are cursed more than all cattle, And more than every beast of the field; On your belly you shall go, And you shall eat dust All the days of your life.

Gen 3:15  And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel."

 

In the following verse Jesus addressed the scribes and the Pharisees and told them they are of the devil's seed, this is not just an idle phrase this is actual fact, they were actually descendants of the devil. 

 

Joh 8:44  "You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.

 

Rev 12:9  So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

 

Read the above verses carefully: the children of the devil will be lustful. 

The enmity between the devils seed and the woman’s seed began with Cain killing Able. 

 

If Adam had chosen to eat of the tree of life, he would have chosen to live a righteous life, just as Christ would live in the future. To eat Christ is to live by Christ.

 

Joh 6:57  "As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me.

 

Adam and Eve chose to eat of the tree of good and evil, which means they chose to live their lives by the sons of God. This was immorality, and sexual perversion. They could have chosen to eat [live as He lived] the Tree of Life, which was Jesus Christ.


 

CHAPTER 7
 

THE TREE OF LIFE

 

 

The tree of life was in the Garden of Eden.

 

Gen 2:9  And out of the ground the LORD God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

 

To eat of the tree of life is the way to eternal life.

 

Gen 3:22  Then the LORD God said, "Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever";

 

Jesus Christ is the only way to eternal life.

 

Act 4:12  "Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved."

 

It’s a simple deduction to know that the tree of life is Jesus Christ. 

God made the tree of life unobtainable; which means He made eternal life unobtainable. [Every human will eventually be offered eternal life.]

 

Gen 3:24  So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.

 

Humanity since Adam and Eve has not had eternal life available; except for the few people who God calls and then chooses. 

 

Commandment keeping is required. By following the tree of life: which is Jesus Christ: We can obtain eternal life. We must enter into the city by the only way possible. God’s genuine people will not hear false teaching.

 

Rev 22:14  Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.

 

Joh 10:1  "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.

Joh 10:2  "But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.

Joh 10:3  "To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.

Joh 10:4  "And when he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them; and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice.

Joh 10:5  "Yet they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers."

 

The fruit of the righteous Jesus Christ is the way to eternal life.

 

Pro 11:30  The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, And he who wins souls is wise.

 

It’s very plain that the tree of life in Eden was Jesus Christ. Adam and Eve could have chosen eternal life by eating [which means living by] Jesus Christ. They rejected the tree of life, and eternal life was cut off from mankind, until God is ready to make it available. 

 

There is also an actual tree called the tree of life. This tree has healing leaves.

 

Rev 22:2  In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

 

The words ‘tree of life’ are also used in an uplifting manner.

 

Pro 15:4  A wholesome tongue is a tree of life, But perverseness in it breaks the spirit.

 

Pro 13:12  Hope deferred makes the heart sick, But when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.

 

Pro 11:30  The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, And he who wins souls is wise.

 


SUMMARY.

 

In the original creation, humanity was given eternal life in the form of God’s spirit. They were not given a choice, and blasphemed the spirit; and God destroyed them. 

 

In the re-creation: God gave Adam and Eve a choice. They chose not to accept eternal life, and the people since Adam have made their own laws, and rejected God. As they were not given the spirit of life, they cannot blaspheme God’s Holy Spirit. They will be offered eternal life sometime in the future. 

 

God calls some people, when they are chosen God gives them the spirit of life. Noah, Abraham, David, etc. are good examples, but they also had to prove to be faithful.

 

The tree of life [Jesus Christ] is the only way to eternal life, and will eventually be offered to every human being.


 

 

CHAPTER 8

 

THE TREE OF GOOD AND EVIL



God equates eternal life with knowing Him and Christ.

 

Joh 17:3  "And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.

 

A lot of the knowledge of God is to be revealed just prior to the time of the end, so it is well hidden in the scriptures. 

 

In the Garden of Eden, the sons of God were called trees, notice the following scriptures. God calls people trees.

 

Mar 8:24  And he looked up and said, "I see men like trees, walking."

 

Jesus Christ is the tree of life. 

 

The trees of good and evil are the sons of God. 

 

The following verses show some of the inhabitants of Eden. The Assyrian is likened to a cedar.

 

Eze 31:3  Indeed Assyria was a cedar in Lebanon, With fine branches that shaded the forest, And of high stature; And its top was among the thick boughs.

 

Trees don’t envy: The trees, which envied the Assyrian, were other spirit beings.

 

Eze 31:8  The cedars in the garden of God could not hide it; The fir trees were not like its boughs, And the chestnut trees were not like its branches; No tree in the garden of God was like it in beauty.

Eze 31:9  I made it beautiful with a multitude of branches, So that all the trees of Eden envied it, That were in the garden of God.'

 

The trees of Eden eventually go down to the pit, which is a place of imprisonment for evil spirits: angels, and sons of God. 

 

Eze 31:16  'I made the nations shake at the sound of its fall, when I cast it down to hell together with those who descend into the Pit; and all the trees of Eden, the choice and best of Lebanon, all that drink water, were comforted in the depths of the earth.

 

Ezekiel tells of some of the beings in Eden

 

The king of Tyrus is a created cherub. He was in Eden.

 

Eze 28:12  "Son of man, take up a lamentation for the king of Tyre, and say to him, 'Thus says the Lord GOD: "You were the seal of perfection, Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.

Eze 28:13  You were in Eden, the garden of God; Every precious stone was your covering: The sardius, topaz, and diamond, Beryl, onyx, and jasper, Sapphire, turquoise, and emerald with gold. The workmanship of your timbrels and pipes Was prepared for you on the day you were created.

Eze 28:14  "You were the anointed cherub who covers; I established you; You were on the holy mountain of God; You walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones.

Eze 28:15  You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, Till iniquity was found in you.

 

The serpent has seed, which means he is a son of God.

 

Gen 3:14  So the LORD God said to the serpent: "Because you have done this, You are cursed more than all cattle, And more than every beast of the field; On your belly you shall go, And you shall eat dust All the days of your life.

Gen 3:15  And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel."

 

The book of Jude is talking about end time beasts, or devils. They are likened to trees. These people are not offered eternal life.

 

Jud 1:12  These are spots in your love feasts, while they feast with you without fear, serving only themselves. They are clouds without water, carried about by the winds; late autumn trees without fruit, twice dead, pulled up by the roots;

 

Jud 1:10  But these speak evil of whatever they do not know; and whatever they know naturally, like brute beasts, in these things they corrupt themselves.

 

Adam and Eve set the world on a course of commandment breaking and sexual perversion. This includes lying, envying, murder, adultery etc. All these sins are now rife in our country and getting worse. 

 

The sins in Eden were: envy, lying, etc. The perversion of sex began in humanity as soon as Adam and Eve were created. The scriptures on the subject are well hidden and have to be carefully studied. 

 

When Adam and Eve were created, they were naked and unashamed. They were joined by God in marriage, and were told to replenish the earth, so sex between them was a natural, God given part of the marriage. This type of sex is part of God's creation.

 

Gen 2:23  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."

Gen 2:24  Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

Gen 2:25  And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

 

Notice what happened when they ate of the tree of good and evil. They knew they were naked. The tree appeared good and pleasant. The word “desired” can mean lusted”.

 

Gen 3:6  So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate.

Gen 3:7  Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings.

 

When God came to Eden: Adam and Eve hid because they were naked. Notice where they hid, amongst the trees, which were spirit beings, as we have clearly shown above. So they went running off to the evil spirit beings and hid from the Great Creator God.

 

Gen 3:8  And they heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.

Gen 3:9  Then the LORD God called to Adam and said to him, "Where are you?"

Gen 3:10  So he said, "I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself."

 

Adam and Eve were now ashamed of being naked. This is exactly how immoral sex or adultery works: it appears wonderful beforehand, but is something to be ashamed of afterward. This is true of all sin. The temporary pleasures of sin appear to make God's way seem mundane. Moses was one of a handful of humans who chose the way of God over the temporary pleasures of sin.

 

Heb 11:24  By faith Moses, when he became of age, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter,

Heb 11:25  choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin,

Heb 11:26  esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt; for he looked to the reward.

 

Back to Adam and Eve in the Garden.

 

God knew what had happened between Adam, Eve and the evil spirit beings. The word Beguiled or deceived in verse 13 can mean “morally seduced”.

 

Gen 3:11  And He said, "Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat?"

Gen 3:12  Then the man said, "The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate."

Gen 3:13  And the LORD God said to the woman, "What is this you have done?" The woman said, "The serpent deceived me, and I ate."

 

“Knowing” in the following verse is used for having sex. ‘Adam knew Eve and she conceived etc.’ Adam and Eve knew good and evil, this includes good and evil sex, as well as breaking and keeping all of God's laws. 

 

Gen 3:5  "For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."

 

God put enmity between the serpent's seed and the woman's seed. This started with Cain and Abel.

 

Gen 3:14  So the LORD God said to the serpent: "Because you have done this, You are cursed more than all cattle, And more than every beast of the field; On your belly you shall go, And you shall eat dust All the days of your life.

Gen 3:15  And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel."

 

Consider the clues for immoral sexual perversion in the Garden of Eden. 

 

[1] Adam and Eve were naked and unashamed. 
[2] After eating of the tree of good and evil, they were ashamed of being naked. 
[3] Desired can mean lusted. 
[4] Beguiled means seduced. 
[5] Know can mean have sex. 
[6] The devils seed was passed on to Eve. 
[7] Touch can mean lie with a woman. 

 

The devil wanted to do all he could to ruin God's plan for man, a great deal had happened before this point, we saw the original creation of man turn against God, we saw the spirit beings, angels and sons of God turn against God, now we have the second creation of man.  Satan did not want this plan to succeed so he did all he could to ruin it, by having sex with Adam and Eve the evil God seed could now infect humanity.

 

 

CHAPTER 9

 

THE DEVIL'S SEED

 

The devil gets the blame for most, if not all, sins in the bible. He sinned from the beginning [the beginning is the time of the original creation.] The devil is the cause of sexual immorality, murder, and lies. The devil instigated lawbreaking.

 

Joh 8:44  "You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.

 

The serpent was in Eden with Adam and Eve.

 

Gen 3:1  Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, "Has God indeed said, 'You shall not eat of every tree of the garden'?"

 

By reading Genesis Chapter 3 it’s easy to tell that the serpent is a sleazebag, just as Christ affirmed in John 8 v 44, quoted above. 

 

God made a prediction that would affect the whole course of mankind.

 

Gen 3:14  So the LORD God said to the serpent: "Because you have done this, You are cursed more than all cattle, And more than every beast of the field; On your belly you shall go, And you shall eat dust All the days of your life.

Gen 3:15  And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel."

 

God's descendants, [apart from Jesus Christ] had become Gods that were good and evil. The serpent was a descendant who was evil from the beginning. 

 

The following verse answers a difficult question, regarding why some people are evil. The devil's seed are born evil, and are liars.

 

Psa 58:3  The wicked are estranged from the womb; They go astray as soon as they are born, speaking lies.

 

The following verses have to be read carefully. Adam had sex with Eve, and Cain was born. Cain was ‘of that wicked one.’ Cain was ‘from the Lord.’ Cain was of the evil God seed {evil sons of God}, not from the good seed created in Adam and Eve.  Due to the fact that the sons of God had sex with Adam and Eve, it was possible for them to reproduce through mankind when ever it suited them.

 

Gen 4:1  Now Adam knew Eve his wife, and she conceived and bore Cain, and said, "I have acquired a man from the LORD."

 

1Jn 3:12  not as Cain who was of the wicked one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his works were evil and his brother's righteous.

 

Abel was not mentioned as being from the Lord. Abel’s works were good, which proves that he was of the good seed, which God created in Adam and Eve.

 

Gen 4:2  Then she bore again, this time his brother Abel. Now Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.

 

At the time of Seth and Enos; the good seed of Adam was prevailing, and men began to live God's way. Notice that God appointed Seth in place of righteous Abel. Seth was not of the evil God seed, he was appointed by God.

 

Gen 4:25  And Adam knew his wife again, and she bore a son and named him Seth, "For God has appointed another seed for me instead of Abel, whom Cain killed."

Gen 4:26  And as for Seth, to him also a son was born; and he named him Enosh. Then men began to call on the name of the LORD.

 

The truth of ancestry since creation is absolutely astounding. The seed, or sperm, created in Adam is good, and the seed emanating from God the Father has the ability to be good and evil.  Just as mankind has to choose between good and evil, so the sons of God had to choose between good and evil.  Christ Himself, had to make that choice, and He chose good over evil. 

 

Genesis Chapter 5 is genealogy, so at the time when men began to call on God; the sons of God came down and corrupted the good seed with their own seed.

 

Gen 6:1  Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them,

Gen 6:2  that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.

 

The above marriages turned mankind from obeying God to being only evil all the time. God’s plan was upset by the sons of God, as the evil seed affected everyone. God had not allowed for this to happen, and repented of creating mankind. [God’s sons were good and evil; and God gave them every chance to let the good triumph over the evil, but it seems that they always let Him down.] 

 

Gen 6:5  Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

Gen 6:6  And the LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.

 

The progeny of Sons of God and humans were only evil, just as the progeny of the serpent is evil. 

 

Notice below in verse 9 perfect in his generations Noah was unaffected by the evil seed. 

 

Gen 6:8  But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

Gen 6:9  This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God.

Gen 6:10  And Noah begot three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

Gen 6:11  The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.

Gen 6:12  So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth.

 

The ‘them’ in the next verse is mankind with the evil God seed: the devil's seed.

 

Gen 6:13  And God said to Noah, "The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth.


SO FAR

 

God had created Adam and Eve good. The devil had passed the evil seed to them. The good seed began to take over at the time of Seth, and the sons of God came and infected mankind with the evil God seed. God planned to take only the good seed the other side of the flood, but; once again the plan failed. The spirits in prison were obviously sons of God who passed the evil seed to Noah’s group; thereby ensuring that mankind after the flood would be good and evil.

 

1Pe 3:19  by whom also He went and preached to the spirits in prison,

1Pe 3:20  who formerly were disobedient, when once the Divine longsuffering waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water.

 

Evil came to the fore almost immediately after the flood as Canaan sodomised Noah.
In the next verse uncovered means stripped.

 

Gen 9:21  Then he drank of the wine and was drunk, and became uncovered in his tent.

Gen 9:22  And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside.

Gen 9:23  But Shem and Japheth took a garment, laid it on both their shoulders, and went backward and covered the nakedness of their father. Their faces were turned away, and they did not see their father's nakedness.

 
In the following verse younger son can mean grandson. 

 

Gen 9:24  So Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done to him.

 

Canaan was the grandson of Noah, and he was cursed for what he had done to Noah.

 

Gen 9:25  Then he said: "Cursed be Canaan; A servant of servants He shall be to his brethren."

 

There are two definite courses for living beings. Adam was created with the spirit of man in him. This spirit can unite with the two phases of the spirit of God, which is another spirit, and lead to eternal life.

 

Job 32:8  But there is a spirit in man, And the breath of the Almighty gives him understanding.

 

1Co 2:11  For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God.

 

Joh 14:16  "And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever;

Joh 14:17  "the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.

 

All mankind is affected by the devil’s seed; that is the reason why mankind is good and evil. It is impossible for humans to live without sinning. 

 

Rom 3:23  for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

 

1Jn 1:10  If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.

 

God created mankind good; it is the devil's seed, which is in all mankind, which causes us to be good and evil. 

 

Gen 1:31  Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

 

The bible calls evil beings ‘beasts.’ Salvation is not available to these beings. 

 

Rev 20:10  The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.

 

2Pe 2:12  But these, like natural brute beasts made to be caught and destroyed, speak evil of the things they do not understand, and will utterly perish in their own corruption,

 

Jud 1:10  But these speak evil of whatever they do not know; and whatever they know naturally, like brute beasts, in these things they corrupt themselves.

 

There is no difference between beasts [evil descendants of God, called devils] and humans at their death, except that at death their spirits go different ways. 

 

Ecc 3:18  I said in my heart, "Concerning the condition of the sons of men, God tests them, that they may see that they themselves are like animals."

Ecc 3:19  For what happens to the sons of men also happens to animals; one thing befalls them: as one dies, so dies the other. Surely, they all have one breath; man has no advantage over animals, for all is vanity.

Ecc 3:20  All go to one place: all are from the dust, and all return to dust.

Ecc 3:21  Who knows the spirit of the sons of men, which goes upward, and the spirit of the animal, which goes down to the earth?

 

Beasts, or those of the devil’s seed, are mentioned throughout the bible. 

Cain was ‘from the Lord’ and was ‘of that evil one.’ This means he was of the evil sons of God seed.

 

Gen 4:1  Now Adam knew Eve his wife, and she conceived and bore Cain, and said, "I have acquired a man from the LORD."

 

1Jn 3:12  not as Cain who was of the wicked one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his works were evil and his brother's righteous.

 

God does not acknowledge Ishmael as being Abraham’s son. Ishmael is obviously of the devil's seed.

 

Gen 25:8  Then Abraham breathed his last and died in a good old age, an old man and full of years, and was gathered to his people.

Gen 25:9  And his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah, which is before Mamre, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite,

 

At the time of the following verse Ishmael had been born, but God did not acknowledge him.

 

Gen 22:12  And He said, "Do not lay your hand on the lad, or do anything to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me."

 

Church leaders at the time of Christ were children of the devil. 

 

Joh 8:44  "You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.

 

Children of the devil hate the way of righteousness.

 

Act 13:8  But Elymas the sorcerer (for so his name is translated) withstood them, seeking to turn the proconsul away from the faith.

Act 13:9  Then Saul, who also is called Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, looked intently at him

Act 13:10  and said, "O full of all deceit and all fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease perverting the straight ways of the Lord?

 

Devils will increase in number at the time of the end. These evil beings are mentioned in the following scriptures.

 

2Ti 3:1  But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come:

2Ti 3:2  For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

2Ti 3:3  unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good,

2Ti 3:4  traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,

2Ti 3:5  having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!

 

2Pe 2:1  But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction.

2Pe 2:2  And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed.

 

Jud 1:4  For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

There are several things to consider. The ‘evil beasts’ in the following verse are beings who are of the devil’s seed.

 

Lev 26:6  I will give peace in the land, and you shall lie down, and none will make you afraid; I will rid the land of evil beasts, and the sword will not go through your land.

 

Look what disobedience brings on. The evil in the following verse is happening in our land at this very time. ‘Wild beasts’ can refer to actual beasts, or children of the devil.

 

Lev 26:22  I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall rob you of your children, destroy your livestock, and make you few in number; and your highways shall be desolate.

 

Child stealing, and murder, is common in our country at this time, and will get worse.

 

Eze 5:17  'So I will send against you famine and wild beasts, and they will bereave you. Pestilence and blood shall pass through you, and I will bring the sword against you. I, the LORD, have spoken.'"

 

The enmity has already happened in the world, as Jesus Christ was put to death because of the church leaders who were children of the devil. The devil seed is passed on through sexual intercourse. The following verse shows that the devil's seed is passed through the male sperm.

 

Gen 3:15  And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel."

 

All humanity have good and evil in them, but it seems that the devil can have his evil beasts born when God allows, as they increase the morals in our land decrease. 

 

These evil beings are sodomites, and they would bring the world to destruction, if not for the very few.

 

Rom 9:29  And as Isaiah said before: "Unless the LORD of Sabaoth had left us a seed, We would have become like Sodom, And we would have been made like Gomorrah."

 

These end time beasts cause our land to become like Sodom.

 

Jud 1:7  as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

Jud 1:8  Likewise also these dreamers defile the flesh, reject authority, and speak evil of dignitaries.

 

The parable of the sower also affirms the influx of beasts, [humans with the devil seed] at the time of the end.

 

Mat 13:24  Another parable He put forth to them, saying: "The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field;

 

Mat 13:37  He answered and said to them: "He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man.

 

Mat 13:25  "but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way.

 

Mat 13:38  "The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the kingdom, but the tares are the sons of the wicked one.

Mat 13:39  "The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels.

 

Mat 13:26  "But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared.

Mat 13:27  "So the servants of the owner came and said to him, 'Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?'

Mat 13:28  "He said to them, 'An enemy has done this.' The servants said to him, 'Do you want us then to go and gather them up?'

Mat 13:29  "But he said, 'No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them.

Mat 13:30  'Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, "First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn."

 

Mat 13:40  "Therefore as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age.

Mat 13:41  "The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness,

Mat 13:42  "and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Mat 13:43  "Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!

 

Humans with the devil seed will appear at the time of the end, and will be well entrenched in the Laodicean church. 

 

From the known scriptures: All mankind is affected by the devil's seed, but are not necessarily children of the devil. The devil seems to be able to have his children born when he wants. These children of the devil do not have the chance for eternal life, as they are overwhelmingly evil, and blasphemed God's Holy Spirit a long time ago. It appears certain that women do not have the devils seed, until they have sex with a male. [Unless they are actually children of the devil.] 

 

There is a massive increase in wickedness among the children. These are almost certainly children of the devil. The following prophecy is being fulfilled at this very time.

 

Isa 3:11  Woe to the wicked! It shall be ill with him, For the reward of his hands shall be given him.

Isa 3:12  As for My people, children are their oppressors, And women rule over them. O My people! Those who lead you cause you to err, And destroy the way of your paths."

 

Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil.

 

1Jn 3:8  He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.


 

CHAPTER 10

 

NOAH 

 


By the time of Noah, all flesh had become corrupt with the evil God seed. Only Noah, and Noah’s family, remained without being affected. Adam's seed had come through to Noah un-tainted by the devil’s seed.

 

Gen 6:8  But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

Gen 6:9  This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God.

 

Adam and Eve had eaten of the tree of good and evil, but all flesh, except Noah, had become evil, due to the marriages of the sons of God to the daughters of men. 

 

God worked out a plan to wipe out evil from the earth. Remember it was God's grandsons who were responsible for the wickedness. No wonder that God was feeling disappointed about the way things were panning out.

 

Gen 6:5  Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

Gen 6:6  And the LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.

Gen 6:7  So the LORD said, "I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them."

 

The ‘them’ in the next verse are the descendants of God the Father, who brought evil into the world at the time when men began to call on the Lord. God did not destroy the earth at Noah’s flood: ‘from’ is a correct translation.

 

Gen 6:13  And God said to Noah, "The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

 

The sons of God were not to be destroyed in the flood. Their human progeny were to be destroyed.

 

Gen 6:17  "And behold, I Myself am bringing floodwaters on the earth, to destroy from under heaven all flesh in which is the breath of life; everything that is on the earth shall die.

 

It is obvious that all of Noah’s family were free of the evil seed. God planned to establish His covenant with Noah after the flood.

 

Gen 6:18  "But I will establish My covenant with you; and you shall go into the ark; you, your sons, your wife, and your sons' wives with you.

 

Once again, God's plan is brought to nought. Remember that God the Father is in charge overall and even though He allows the evil seed to pollute mankind, He still has a purpose for this and the intervention of the evil Grandsons of God appears to ruin God's plan, but it does not. God uses this diversion to suit His overall purpose for mankind. 

 

The following verses show that the evil sons of God once again infected mankind with the evil seed.  The Grandsons of God infected one or more of the members of Noah's family during the time of the construction of the Ark.  Therefore the evil seed was once again able to be carried on to mankind through the infected ones on the other side of the flood. 

 

1Pe 3:19  by whom also He went and preached to the spirits in prison,

1Pe 3:20  who formerly were disobedient, when once the Divine longsuffering waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water.

 

Genesis 9 v 19 tells us that the sons of Noah populated the earth. The ‘afterward’ in Genesis 6v4 can only mean after the flood. There were giants such as Goliath after the flood. 

 

Gen 9:19  These three were the sons of Noah, and from these the whole earth was populated.

 

Gen 6:4  There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.

 

Noah was free from the devil's seed; so his sons would also be free from it, and the son's wives would not have the evil seed, because their husbands did not have it. The disobedient spirits ruined things, and their actions insured that the evil God seed was carried past the flood.


 

CHAPTER 11

GOD THE FATHER TO NOAH IN BRIEF

 

 

God the Father has always existed. He is the omnipotent, all knowing, all powerful, God. God the Father will not compromise with His laws or the punishment for breaking those laws. God the Father has alone inhabited eternity. God the Father is the supreme creator, the supreme saviour, and the supreme redeemer. God the Father is the one true God. 

 

In the beginning: a spiritual Son was born to God the Father. This was the bright and Morning Star, God the Word. The Morning Star loved righteousness, just as His Father loved righteousness. The Morning Star gave up His divinity to be born as a human being. He was born to the virgin Mary and named Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ lived a sinless life and died for the sins of mankind. There is no other way to eternal life, but by Christ. 

 

The Morning Star also had spiritual sons born to Him. Lucifer is a Morning Star and is the son of the Morning. The sons of God are the descendants of God the Father: It seems that the majority are the sons of Lucifer. 

 

The sons of God shouted for joy at the original creation of the heaven and the earth. It was after this time, but before Adam and Eve, that they sinned. The first humans became sexually perverted, and were eventually all destroyed by God. The sons of God would have had a big say in this perversion. 

 

Adam and Eve were created by God the Father, and given a choice of emulating Christ [tree of life] or the sons of God [tree of good and evil.] They chose the tree of good and evil, which is the way of eternal death. Christ’s crucifixion and cruel death for the sins of mankind was humanities only hope for salvation. 

 

Cain was of the devil's seed: he killed Abel, who was of the good seed created in Adam. Seth was of the good seed, and humans began to obey God as the good seed spread. The sons of God began marrying daughters of men, and turned mankind to evil. God destroyed the evil God seed, in the flood, with the intention of starting afresh with the good seed of Noah and his family. The spirits were disobedient, and infected one or more of Noah’s family who were saved in the flood. 

 

By the time of Noah’s flood: God had at least seven plans ruined, mainly by the sons of God. God has a plan for salvation for all mankind, if they choose to obey Him. 

 

[1] The sons of God became both good and evil some time before the creation of original man. 

 

[2] Some angels sinned.

 

[3] All mankind in the first creation became perverted and were destroyed completely by God. 

 

[4] Adam and Eve ate of the tree of good and evil. {This was living as the evil Sons of God lived}. 

 

[5] Cain was of the evil one, and killed Abel.

 

[6] The sons of God married daughters of men and turned men away from God at the time when men began calling on the Lord. 

 

[7] Disobedient spirits ruined God's plan to carry the good seed to the other side of the flood. 

 

Think how disappointed we humans are when our progeny turns bad. God loves more than we are capable of, but He will not compromise His perfect law: He forgives time and time again, always looking for true repentance. It appears that only Jesus Christ has loved righteousness. God's grandsons have continually let Him down, and will eventually be put to death; or suffer forever in the lake of fire. There is a possibility that some have bucked the trend, and are righteous.


 

CHAPTER 12

 

SHEM HAM JAPHETH 

 


After the flood, evil once again came to the fore, this was because of the disobedience of the spirits. [Jesus Christ preached to the spirits in hell after God resurrected Him in the tomb. He was with these evil spirits for three days and three nights.].....as the scriptures state He was three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

 

1Pe 3:19  by whom also He went and preached to the spirits in prison,

1Pe 3:20  who formerly were disobedient, when once the Divine longsuffering waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water.

 

Prior to the flood, mankind was capable of choosing to do good, even though good and evil was now with them. Seth started mankind on the road to doing good, but the sons of God ruined things by marrying the daughters of men, which brought all mankind to evil. God wiped out this evil, and kept Noah and his contingent alive: this would have allowed humans to follow the way of righteousness after the flood, but for the disobedience of the sons of God once again. 

 

God gave the same responsibility to Noah and his sons as He had given to Adam and Eve.

 

Gen 9:1  So God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them: "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth.

 

After the flood, mankind became predominately evil. Canaan sodomised Noah. 

 

Read the following verses carefully. Ham told his brothers as soon as he saw Noah naked.

 

Gen 9:20  And Noah began to be a farmer, and he planted a vineyard.

Gen 9:21  Then he drank of the wine and was drunk, and became uncovered in his tent.

Gen 9:22  And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside.

Gen 9:23  But Shem and Japheth took a garment, laid it on both their shoulders, and went backward and covered the nakedness of their father. Their faces were turned away, and they did not see their father's nakedness.

 

Noah knew what the younger son had done. Ham was possibly one of triplets, and was not the youngest.

Notice that at the age of 500 years Noah begot three sons, there is two possible explanations for this, firstly the sons were triplets, or one child was born and a set of twins born in the same year.

 

Gen 5:32  And Noah was five hundred years old, and Noah begot Shem, Ham, and Japheth.


However, there is also another scripture which shows that Japheth is the elder, this could be referring to age or status.


Gen 10:21
  And children were born also to Shem, the father of all the children of Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder.


The younger son can also refer to grandson. Noah knew what the grandson had done. 

 

Gen 9:24  So Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done to him.

 

It was Canaan who was cursed, because it was Canaan who had done the evil to Noah.

 

Gen 9:25  Then he said: "Cursed be Canaan; A servant of servants He shall be to his brethren."

Gen 9:26  And he said: "Blessed be the LORD, The God of Shem, And may Canaan be his servant.

Gen 9:27  May God enlarge Japheth, And may he dwell in the tents of Shem; And may Canaan be his servant."

 

Ham did nothing to Noah, he saw Noah naked and immediately told Shem and Japheth who then covered Noah. Canaan was the culprit: 
It is obvious that Canaan sodomised Noah. Canaan was cursed. The other sons of Ham did not receive that curse, nor did Ham. 

 

Shem is the father of the white people. Japheth is the father of eastern people. Ham is the father of the black people.


 

CHAPTER 13
 

ABRAHAM 

 


Nimrod had brought the people together where they began to build a tower to heaven.

 

Gen 11:4  And they said, "Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth."

 

God changed the language to divide the people, and then scattered them over all the earth.

 

Gen 11:6  And the LORD said, "Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.

Gen 11:7  "Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another's speech."

Gen 11:8  So the LORD scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they ceased building the city.

 

Abraham was born in the line of Shem. God called Abraham out of his country and promised him great blessings.

 

Gen 12:1  Now the LORD had said to Abram: "Get out of your country, From your family And from your father's house, To a land that I will show you.

Gen 12:2  I will make you a great nation; I will bless you And make your name great; And you shall be a blessing.

Gen 12:3  I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed."

 

It would appear that Abrahams father Terah was an idol worshipper, which is probably one of the reasons God wanted Abraham to leave his family.

 

Jos 24:2  And Joshua said to all the people, "Thus says the LORD God of Israel: 'Your fathers, including Terah, the father of Abraham and the father of Nahor, dwelt on the other side of the River in old times; and they served other gods.

 

Abraham obeyed God without question.

 

Gen 26:5  "because Abraham obeyed My voice and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My laws."

 

Heb 11:8  By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going.

 

Gen 12:4  So Abram departed as the LORD had spoken to him, and Lot went with him. And Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran.

 

Abraham’s descendants were promised the land of Canaan: [the general land of Israel]. 

 

Gen 12:5  Then Abram took Sarai his wife and Lot his brother's son, and all their possessions that they had gathered, and the people whom they had acquired in Haran, and they departed to go to the land of Canaan. So they came to the land of Canaan.

Gen 12:6  Abram passed through the land to the place of Shechem, as far as the terebinth tree of Moreh. And the Canaanites were then in the land.

Gen 12:7  Then the LORD appeared to Abram and said, "To your descendants I will give this land." And there he built an altar to the LORD, who had appeared to him.

 

The promise was forever.

 

Gen 13:15  "for all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever.

 

Abraham went to war to save Lot, and was successful. Melchizedek {also spelt Melchisedec} the priest of God brought food and a blessing. 

 

Gen 14:18  Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine; he was the priest of God Most High.

Gen 14:19  And he blessed him and said: "Blessed be Abram of God Most High, Possessor of heaven and earth;

Gen 14:20  And blessed be God Most High, Who has delivered your enemies into your hand." And he gave him a tithe of all.

 

Abraham’s character shows in the next verses; he would take no gain out of winning the battle. 

 

Gen 14:22  But Abram said to the king of Sodom, "I have raised my hand to the LORD, God Most High, the Possessor of heaven and earth,

Gen 14:23  "that I will take nothing, from a thread to a sandal strap, and that I will not take anything that is yours, lest you should say, 'I have made Abram rich';

 

God promises Abraham a child. 

 

Gen 15:1  After these things the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision, saying, "Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward."

Gen 15:2  But Abram said, "Lord GOD, what will You give me, seeing I go childless, and the heir of my house is Eliezer of Damascus?"

Gen 15:3  Then Abram said, "Look, You have given me no offspring; indeed one born in my house is my heir!"

Gen 15:4  And behold, the word of the LORD came to him, saying, "This one shall not be your heir, but one who will come from your own body shall be your heir."

 

Abraham believed God. [It is extremely rare for a person to believe God].

 

Gen 15:5  Then He brought him outside and said, "Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them." And He said to him, "So shall your descendants be."

Gen 15:6  And he believed in the LORD, and He accounted it to him for righteousness.

 

God told Abraham that his seed would be in captivity 400 years.

 

Gen 15:13  Then He said to Abram: "Know certainly that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them, and they will afflict them four hundred years.

 

The covenant promise is mentioned over and over.

 

Gen 15:18  On the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying: "To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates;

 

Sarah and Abraham had no child so they thought the only way for them to have a child was to give Hagar to Abraham to get a child.

 

Gen 16:4  So he went in to Hagar, and she conceived. And when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress became despised in her eyes.

 

Hagar was to have a child and name him Ishmael.

 

Gen 16:11  And the Angel of the LORD said to her: "Behold, you are with child, And you shall bear a son. You shall call his name Ishmael, Because the LORD has heard your affliction.

Gen 16:12  He shall be a wild man; His hand shall be against every man, And every man's hand against him. And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren."

 

It is important to note that God called Isaac: Abraham’s only begotten son. This is repeated four times in the bible to emphasize the fact. Isaac was of the good seed created in Adam and Eve. Ishmael was of the devil’s evil seed.

 

Heb 11:17  By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,

 

Gen 22:2  Then He said, "Take now your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you."

 

Gen 22:12  And He said, "Do not lay your hand on the lad, or do anything to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me."

 

Gen 22:16  and said: "By Myself I have sworn, says the LORD, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son;

 

Ishmael was a child of the devil. We have shown that a man has to have sex with his wife before a child of the devil can be born. The serpent can obviously decide when one of his progeny will be born. God the Father is always aware of what is happening, and remains in overall control. 

 

Gen 16:15  So Hagar bore Abram a son; and Abram named his son, whom Hagar bore, Ishmael.

 

Once again: God reinforced the covenant. 

 

Gen 17:1  When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him, "I am Almighty God; walk before Me and be blameless.

Gen 17:2  "And I will make My covenant between Me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly."

Gen 17:3  Then Abram fell on his face, and God talked with him, saying:

Gen 17:4  "As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations.

 

Circumcision was a token of the covenant.

 

Gen 17:10  "This is My covenant which you shall keep, between Me and you and your descendants after you: Every male child among you shall be circumcised;

Gen 17:11  "and you shall be circumcised in the flesh of your foreskins, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between Me and you.

 

God confirmed that Sarah would have a son.

 

Gen 17:19  Then God said: "No, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his descendants after him.

 

The covenant promise was passed on to Isaac.

 

Gen 17:21  "But My covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah shall bear to you at this set time next year."

 

What happened next is about the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. God the Father appeared to Abraham, and three men stood near. Remember the Lord cannot be looked upon, and Abraham saw three men. These were two angels and God the Word, the Father appeared in one of the ways in which He can appear before man.

 

Gen 18:1  Then the LORD appeared to him by the terebinth trees of Mamre, as he was sitting in the tent door in the heat of the day.

Gen 18:2  So he lifted his eyes and looked, and behold, three men were standing by him; and when he saw them, he ran from the tent door to meet them, and bowed himself to the ground,

 

Two angels went into Sodom. It is fairly obvious that the third man was God the word.

 

Gen 19:1  Now the two angels came to Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground.

 

The men of Sodom wanted to have sex with the angels.

 

Gen 19:4  Now before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both old and young, all the people from every quarter, surrounded the house.

Gen 19:5  And they called to Lot and said to him, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may know them carnally."

 

The men refused the offer of having sex with Lot's daughters.

 

Gen 19:8  "See now, I have two daughters who have not known a man; please, let me bring them out to you, and you may do to them as you wish; only do nothing to these men, since this is the reason they have come under the shadow of my roof."

Gen 19:9  And they said, "Stand back!" Then they said, "This one came in to stay here, and he keeps acting as a judge; now we will deal worse with you than with them." So they pressed hard against the man Lot, and came near to break down the door.

 

The angels protected Lot.

 

Gen 19:11  And they struck the men who were at the doorway of the house with blindness, both small and great, so that they became weary trying to find the door.

 

Lot warned his daughters’ fiancées of impending destruction, but they refused to listen.

 

Gen 19:13  "For we will destroy this place, because the outcry against them has grown great before the face of the LORD, and the LORD has sent us to destroy it."

Gen 19:14  So Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who had married his daughters, and said, "Get up, get out of this place; for the LORD will destroy this city!" But to his sons-in-law he seemed to be joking.

 

God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.

 

Gen 19:24  Then the LORD rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah, from the LORD out of the heavens.

Gen 19:25  So He overthrew those cities, all the plain, all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground.

 

Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed as an example of the lake of fire.

 

Jud 1:7  as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

 

Lots wife looked back and was turned to a pillar of salt.

 

Gen 19:26  But his wife looked back behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.

 

Lots daughters became pregnant by their father and started two nations. Moab and Ammon were started by incestuous sex.  However Lot was unaware of what his daughters had planned or what they did with him.

 

Gen 19:32  "Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve the lineage of our father."

Gen 19:33  So they made their father drink wine that night. And the firstborn went in and lay with her father, and he did not know when she lay down or when she arose.

 

Gen 19:37  The firstborn bore a son and called his name Moab; he is the father of the Moabites to this day.

Gen 19:38  And the younger, she also bore a son and called his name Ben-Ammi; he is the father of the people of Ammon to this day.

 

The early years of God's creation are full of perverted sex, mainly sodomy. This begins with the perversion of the devil, who was perverted from the beginning. 

 

Abraham had faults, as do all humans, he called Sarah his sister; which caused trouble. Gen. Ch. 20 tells the story. 

 

Isaac was born to Sarah when Abraham was 100 years old.

 

Gen 21:5  Now Abraham was one hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him.

 

God confirmed that Isaac would inherit the promises, not Ishmael.

 

Gen 21:12  But God said to Abraham, "Do not let it be displeasing in your sight because of the lad or because of your bondwoman. Whatever Sarah has said to you, listen to her voice; for in Isaac your seed shall be called.

 

God the Father was prepared to offer up His Son Jesus Christ: He now tested Abraham to see whether he would offer up his son.

 

Gen 22:2  Then He said, "Take now your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you."

 

Abraham was prepared to obey God, even to the point of sacrificing his son. God stopped him from killing Isaac, and the covenant now became unconditional. 

 

Gen 22:16  and said: "By Myself I have sworn, says the LORD, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son;

Gen 22:17  "blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies.

Gen 22:18  "In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice."

 

Abraham was a mighty man of God. God always came first with Abraham, and he became the father of the faithful.

 

Rom 4:16  Therefore it is of faith that it might be according to grace, so that the promise might be sure to all the seed, not only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all

 

It is obvious that the devil had Ishmael born first so he would inherit the promises made to Abraham, but God chose Isaac, and Isaac became the firstborn in God's eyes. The promises continued down through the line of Isaac.


 

CHAPTER 14

 

ISAAC 

 


Isaac is called the only begotten son of Abraham. 

 

Heb 11:17  By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,

 

Ishmael's father is Abraham, but he is of the evil one, the devil. That is the only explanation of the above verse. 

 

Isaac was the son who Abraham had been willing to sacrifice. Notice that Isaac is called Abraham’s only son.

 

Gen 22:2  Then He said, "Take now your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you."

 

The promise made to Abraham was passed on to Isaac.

 

Gen 21:12  But God said to Abraham, "Do not let it be displeasing in your sight because of the lad or because of your bondwoman. Whatever Sarah has said to you, listen to her voice; for in Isaac your seed shall be called.

 

Gen 17:19  Then God said: "No, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his descendants after him.

 

Gen 17:21  "But My covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah shall bear to you at this set time next year."

 

Isaac was used by God to test Abraham. 

 

God chose Rebekah to be Isaac’s wife.

 

Gen 24:50  Then Laban and Bethuel answered and said, "The thing comes from the LORD; we cannot speak to you either bad or good.

Gen 24:51  "Here is Rebekah before you; take her and go, and let her be your master's son's wife, as the LORD has spoken."

Gen 24:52  And it came to pass, when Abraham's servant heard their words, that he worshiped the LORD, bowing himself to the earth.

 

Gen 24:67  Then Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah's tent; and he took Rebekah and she became his wife, and he loved her. So Isaac was comforted after his mother's death.

 

Rebekah bore twins to Isaac; note that they were two different types of people. Esau was to serve Jacob.

 

Gen 25:23  And the LORD said to her: "Two nations are in your womb, Two peoples shall be separated from your body; One people shall be stronger than the other, And the older shall serve the younger."

 

Gen 25:25  And the first came out red. He was like a hairy garment all over; so they called his name Esau.

Gen 25:26  Afterward his brother came out, and his hand took hold of Esau's heel; so his name was called Jacob. Isaac was sixty years old when she bore them.

 

God loved Jacob. God hated Esau. Esau despised the beautiful birthright. It is obvious that God hated Esau because he was not a devil, as Ishmael was, but was of Adam's seed, and still despised the birthright.

 

Rom 9:13  As it is written, "Jacob I have loved, but Esau I have hated."

 

God blessed Isaac.

 

Gen 26:12  Then Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the LORD blessed him.

Gen 26:13  The man began to prosper, and continued prospering until he became very prosperous;

 

God loved Isaac, and passed the blessings on to him.

 

Gen 26:24  And the LORD appeared to him the same night and said, "I am the God of your father Abraham; do not fear, for I am with you. I will bless you and multiply your descendants for My servant Abraham's sake."

 

Isaac has qualified to be in God's kingdom.

 

Mat 8:11  "And I say to you that many will come from east and west, and sit down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.


 
 

CHAPTER 15

 

JACOB [ISRAEL]

 

 

Jacob was the second child of twins, born to Isaac.

 

1Ch 1:34  And Abraham begot Isaac. The sons of Isaac were Esau and Israel.

 

God loved Jacob over Esau. 

 

Mal 1:3  But Esau I have hated, And laid waste his mountains and his heritage For the jackals of the wilderness."

 

Rom 9:13  As it is written, "Jacob I have loved, but Esau I have hated."

 

Jacob resorted to devious means to obtain the birthright and blessing; which should have gone to the elder brother. 

 

Esau despised his birthright, and sold it for a meal.

 

Gen 25:31  But Jacob said, "Sell me your birthright as of this day."

Gen 25:32  And Esau said, "Look, I am about to die; so what is this birthright to me?"

Gen 25:33  Then Jacob said, "Swear to me as of this day." So he swore to him, and sold his birthright to Jacob.

Gen 25:34  And Jacob gave Esau bread and stew of lentils; then he ate and drank, arose, and went his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright.

 

Esau despised his birthright and sold it to Jacob. Jacob took Esau’s blessing by deceit. Physical riches were promised to Jacob by Isaac: who thought he was blessing Esau.

 

Gen 27:28  Therefore may God give you Of the dew of heaven, Of the fatness of the earth, And plenty of grain and wine.

Gen 27:29  Let peoples serve you, And nations bow down to you. Be master over your brethren, And let your mother's sons bow down to you. Cursed be everyone who curses you, And blessed be those who bless you!"

 

The promises to Abraham were carried down to Isaac and then Jacob. Jacob paid for being deceitful, as Laban tricked him into working seven years for Rachel; then gave him Leah instead. Jacob then had to work another seven years to marry Rachel, whom he loved. 

Jacob wrestled all night with God [Jesus Christ] and had his name changed to Israel.

 

Gen 32:28  And He said, "Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel; for you have struggled with God and with men, and have prevailed."

 

Israel had twelve sons; they are Joseph and the following eleven. 

 

Exo 1:1  Now these are the names of the children of Israel who came to Egypt; each man and his household came with Jacob:

Exo 1:2  Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah;

Exo 1:3  Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin;

Exo 1:4  Dan, Naphtali, Gad, and Asher.

Exo 1:5  All those who were descendants of Jacob were seventy persons (for Joseph was in Egypt already).

 

Joseph dreamed that his family would bow down to him. This caused his brothers to hate him.

 

Gen 37:5  Now Joseph had a dream, and he told it to his brothers; and they hated him even more.

Gen 37:6  So he said to them, "Please hear this dream which I have dreamed:

Gen 37:7  "There we were, binding sheaves in the field. Then behold, my sheaf arose and also stood upright; and indeed your sheaves stood all around and bowed down to my sheaf."

Gen 37:8  And his brothers said to him, "Shall you indeed reign over us? Or shall you indeed have dominion over us?" So they hated him even more for his dreams and for his words.

Gen 37:9  Then he dreamed still another dream and told it to his brothers, and said, "Look, I have dreamed another dream. And this time, the sun, the moon, and the eleven stars bowed down to me."

Gen 37:10  So he told it to his father and his brothers; and his father rebuked him and said to him, "What is this dream that you have dreamed? Shall your mother and I and your brothers indeed come to bow down to the earth before you?"

 

The sons of Israel sold Joseph into slavery. He was taken to Egypt where God prospered him. Joseph eventually brought his father and brothers to live in Egypt, because of a great famine. 

 

The promises which were originally given to Abraham, were passed on to Isaac, and then Jacob [Israel]. The promises were then passed on to Joseph’s sons Ephraim and Manasseh. All of the sons of Israel were given blessings, but the birthright blessing went to Ephraim and Manasseh. Gen. 49 gives the individual blessings.

 

Gen 49:1  And Jacob called his sons and said, "Gather together, that I may tell you what shall befall you in the last days:

 

Jacob adopted Ephraim and Manasseh. Jacob mentioned Ephraim first, and compared him to Reuben who was Jacob’s firstborn.

 

Gen 48:4  "and said to me, 'Behold, I will make you fruitful and multiply you, and I will make of you a multitude of people, and give this land to your descendants after you as an everlasting possession.'

Gen 48:5  "And now your two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, who were born to you in the land of Egypt before I came to you in Egypt, are mine; as Reuben and Simeon, they shall be mine.

 

Jacob deliberately gave the greater blessing to the younger son. 

 

Gen 48:14  Then Israel stretched out his right hand and laid it on Ephraim's head, who was the younger, and his left hand on Manasseh's head, guiding his hands knowingly, for Manasseh was the firstborn.

Gen 48:15  And he blessed Joseph, and said: "God, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac walked, The God who has fed me all my life long to this day,

Gen 48:16  The Angel who has redeemed me from all evil, Bless the lads; Let my name be named upon them, And the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; And let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth."

 

Joseph wanted the firstborn to get the main blessing.

 

Gen 48:17  Now when Joseph saw that his father laid his right hand on the head of Ephraim, it displeased him; so he took hold of his father's hand to remove it from Ephraim's head to Manasseh's head.

Gen 48:18  And Joseph said to his father, "Not so, my father, for this one is the firstborn; put your right hand on his head."

 

Jacob said “He, [Manasseh] also shall be great, but Ephraim shall be greater."

 

Gen 48:19  But his father refused and said, "I know, my son, I know. He also shall become a people, and he also shall be great; but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his descendants shall become a multitude of nations."

Gen 48:20  So he blessed them that day, saying, "By you Israel will bless, saying, 'May God make you as Ephraim and as Manasseh!' " And thus he set Ephraim before Manasseh.

 

God regards Ephraim as the firstborn. Manasseh was actually the firstborn, but when the blessings were given, Ephraim was put first. There is great interest in the blessings. Isaac was given firstborn status over Ishmael. Jacob was given the blessings over Esau. Reuben was Jacob’s firstborn, but was disqualified. {Gen 35 v 22 Reuben slept with his father's concubine} Manasseh was Joseph’s firstborn, but God chose Ephraim to be the firstborn. 

 

God put Ephraim as the firstborn to Jacob. 

 

Jer 31:9  They shall come with weeping, And with supplications I will lead them. I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters, In a straight way in which they shall not stumble; For I am a Father to Israel, And Ephraim is My firstborn.

 

The blessings were given to Joseph, which included Ephraim and Manasseh.

 

Gen 49:22  "Joseph is a fruitful bough, A fruitful bough by a well; His branches run over the wall.

 

Deu 33:13  And of Joseph he said: "Blessed of the LORD is his land, With the precious things of heaven, with the dew, And the deep lying beneath,

 

The blessing was passed from Abraham to Isaac so Ishmael would not get any of the birthright blessing. 

 

The blessing was passed from Isaac to Jacob, so Esau would not get any of it. 

 

Jacob's firstborn son Reuben was disqualified from receiving the firstborn blessing, but he still receives a blessing as a child of Jacob. 

 

Not one firstborn has received the blessing. This is because Satan has obviously tried to get the birthright for his own progeny, and some have disqualified themselves because of their actions.

 


 
 

CHAPTER 16

 

MOSES



Moses was not of the tribe of Judah or Joseph: He was a Levite.

 

1Ch 23:14  Now the sons of Moses the man of God were reckoned to the tribe of Levi.

 

Moses was destined from birth to do a great work for God. He was saved when all Israelite babies were ordered to be killed.

 

Exo 1:22  So Pharaoh commanded all his people, saying, "Every son who is born you shall cast into the river, and every daughter you shall save alive."

 

Exo 2:3  But when she could no longer hide him, she took an ark of bulrushes for him, daubed it with asphalt and pitch, put the child in it, and laid it in the reeds by the river's bank.

 

Moses was rescued by Pharaohs daughter, and given to Moses’ mother to nurse him.

 

Exo 2:8  And Pharaoh's daughter said to her, "Go." So the maiden went and called the child's mother.

Exo 2:9  Then Pharaoh's daughter said to her, "Take this child away and nurse him for me, and I will give you your wages." So the woman took the child and nursed him.

 

Moses was brought up in the household of Pharaoh, but eventually he chose God's way over the pleasures of sin.

 

Heb 11:24  By faith Moses, when he became of age, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter,

Heb 11:25  choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin,

 

Moses was chosen by God to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. The journey from Egypt to the Promised Land, with Moses the physical leader, is a type of our journey from the ways of this world to eternal life.

 

God had told Moses about his calling to lead the Israelites out of Egypt about 40 years before it happened.
When Moses killed the Egyptian God had already spoken to him.  Moses was 40 years old at this time.  Notice verse 25 in the following verses.

 

Act 7:23  "Now when he was forty years old, it came into his heart to visit his brethren, the children of Israel.

Act 7:24  "And seeing one of them suffer wrong, he defended and avenged him who was oppressed, and struck down the Egyptian.

Act 7:25  "For he supposed that his brethren would have understood that God would deliver them by his hand, but they did not understand.

 

Moses was 80 years old when he went to Pharaoh.

 

Exo 7:7  And Moses was eighty years old and Aaron eighty-three years old when they spoke to Pharaoh.

 

Moses was a man of great faith and patience, to have the knowledge of this tremendous calling for 40 years before it happened would have taken a great deal of faith, strength and patience.  He also waited on God, he did not try and deliver the Israelites when he thought it should happen he simply waited for God to show him when it would happen.

 

Heb 3:5  And Moses indeed was faithful in all His house as a servant, for a testimony of those things which would be spoken afterward,

 

The knowledge of the exodus, with Moses the physical leader; is given in the article ‘The Knowledge of the Truth.’ 

 

Moses was a great man of God, and talked the Almighty out of killing the Israelites. He led the Israelites to the banks of the Jordan, but was not permitted to go to the Promised Land.


 
 
 

CHAPTER 17

 

TWO GODS ON THE MOUNTAIN


 

God the Father and God the Word were on Mount Horeb, [Sinai] when the Ten Commandments were given. 

 

Exo 24:9  Then Moses went up, also Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel,

Exo 24:10  and they saw the God of Israel. And there was under His feet as it were a paved work of sapphire stone, and it was like the very heavens in its clarity.

Exo 24:11  But on the nobles of the children of Israel He did not lay His hand. So they saw God, and they ate and drank.

 

In the above scripture the God of Israel spoken of is Hebrew 430 {Strong's Concordance} which means Elohiym, This is God the word.  This is also understood because the elders saw Him and ate and drank with Him. 

 

You cannot look on God the Father {Hebrew 3068 in Strong's Concordance} and live. 

 

In Exodus 24 v 12 the God who called Moses up to the top of the mountain and gave him the Ten Commandments is Jehovah {H3068} 3068 can only refer to God the Father it cannot refer to Christ. It refers to the Father only.

 

Exo 24:12  Then the LORD said to Moses, "Come up to Me on the mountain and be there; and I will give you tablets of stone, and the law and commandments which I have written, that you may teach them."

 

The God who called Moses up to the top of the mountain and gave the Ten Commandments to him was H3068 Jehovah. 

 

This word Yhovah H3068 can only be used for the Father. 

 

The God who gave the Commandments cannot be looked upon.

 

Exo 33:17  So the LORD said to Moses, "I will also do this thing that you have spoken; for you have found grace in My sight, and I know you by name."

Exo 33:18  And he said, "Please, show me Your glory."

Exo 33:19  Then He said, "I will make all My goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before you. I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion."

Exo 33:20  But He said, "You cannot see My face; for no man shall see Me, and live."

 

The God who spoke to Moses face to face is also H3068: God the Father. 

 

Exo 33:11  So the LORD spoke to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend. And he would return to the camp, but his servant Joshua the son of Nun, a young man, did not depart from the tabernacle.

 

Now you are probably wondering how this is possible, God the Father said you can’t see me and live, and yet Moses spoke to Him face to face, the following scriptures explain quite clearly how this happened. 

 

Exo 33:9  And it came to pass, when Moses entered the tabernacle, that the pillar of cloud descended and stood at the door of the tabernacle, and the Lord talked with Moses.

 

There are six ways in which the Father appears to man without them being harmed, He appears in a cloud, in a vision, in a fire, in a dream, in a whirlwind, and He can be invisible.
In the above case the Father appeared in a cloud.

 

Psa 99:6  Moses and Aaron were among His priests, And Samuel was among those who called upon His name; They called upon the LORD, and He answered them.

Psa 99:7  He spoke to them in the cloudy pillar; They kept His testimonies and the ordinance He gave them.

 

Notice the following scriptures which show some of the ways the Father can appear to man.

 

Deu 5:4  "The LORD talked with you face to face on the mountain from the midst of the fire.

 

In some instances God the Father appears invisible.

 

1Ti 1:17  Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

 

He also appears in a vision.

 

Gen 15:1  After these things the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision, saying, "Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward."

 

At the time when the Father gave the Ten Commandments He appeared in a cloud. 

 

It is amazingly clear that the God spoken of in the above scriptures is God the Father. 

 

The scriptures are very plain: God the Father, who cannot be directly looked upon, gave the Ten Commandments. God the Word was on the mountain at the same time. The elders were able to look upon God the Word.

 

Exo 24:9  Then Moses went up, also Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel,

Exo 24:10  and they saw the God of Israel. And there was under His feet as it were a paved work of sapphire stone, and it was like the very heavens in its clarity.

Exo 24:11  But on the nobles of the children of Israel He did not lay His hand. So they saw God, and they ate and drank.

 

It is apparent that the angel mentioned in the next verse is God the Word [Christ] Christ is called an angel in the Old Testament. The lively oracles were obviously given to the elders when they saw God {Christ} on Mt. Horeb.

 

Act 7:38  "This is he who was in the congregation in the wilderness with the Angel who spoke to him on Mount Sinai, and with our fathers, the one who received the living oracles to give to us,

 

God the Father gave the Ten Commandments to Moses: He cannot be looked upon. 

 

God the Word [Jesus Christ] gave the oracles to the elders, including Joshua: He can be looked upon. 

 

They were both on the mountain at the same time.        


 

CHAPTER 18

 

JOSHUA

 

 

Moses led the children to the banks of the Jordan, but God would not let him go into the Promised Land. Joshua was given the responsibility of taking the Israelites into the Promised Land. The prophet that God raised up is Joshua. A lot of false ministers have claimed to be this prophet. The angel mentioned can be ‘messenger’ and refers to Christ. The oracles are utterances of God.

 

Act 7:37  "This is that Moses who said to the children of Israel, 'The LORD your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your brethren. Him you shall hear.'

Act 7:38  "This is he who was in the congregation in the wilderness with the Angel who spoke to him on Mount Sinai, and with our fathers, the one who received the living oracles to give to us,

 

The exodus from Egypt [sin] to the Promised Land [eternal life in God's Kingdom] gives the knowledge of eternal life. 

 

Mr. Armstrong, who was the physical leader of the Philadelphian era of God's church, took us to the banks of the Jordan, but was not given the knowledge of the truth, which is the knowledge of eternal life. He taught us the correct knowledge for that era, which made eternal life available. We must accept the knowledge of the Laodicean church, which is the knowledge of eternal life. This is different knowledge than we received in the Philadelphian church. 

 

Joshua took the Israelites into the Promised Land, and they obeyed God all the time that he and some righteous elders were in charge.

 

Jos 24:31  Israel served the LORD all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders who outlived Joshua, who had known all the works of the LORD which He had done for Israel.

 

Joshua was a man of God from when the Israelites left Egypt, until his death. He was in charge of Israel for the only time in history that they obeyed God. The prophecy given by Moses, referred to Joshua, and was fulfilled. 

 

Look at the following scripture Moses said God will raise up a prophet from your people {the people present at that time}, he is like me. {Same heart and mind as Moses}.  That was Joshua.

 

Act 7:37  "This is that Moses who said to the children of Israel, 'The LORD your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your brethren. Him you shall hear.'

 

The generation after Joshua rejected God.

 

Jdg 2:10  When all that generation had been gathered to their fathers, another generation arose after them who did not know the LORD nor the work which He had done for Israel.

Jdg 2:11  Then the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD, and served the Baals;

 

There were four hundred and fifty sorry years following the death of Joshua. Time and time again Israel went whoring after strange gods, and ended up in captivity. 

 

Act 13:20  "After that He gave them judges for about four hundred and fifty years, until Samuel the prophet.

 

Jdg 2:11  Then the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD, and served the Baals;

Jdg 2:12  and they forsook the LORD God of their fathers, who had brought them out of the land of Egypt; and they followed other gods from among the gods of the people who were all around them, and they bowed down to them; and they provoked the LORD to anger.

Jdg 2:13  They forsook the LORD and served Baal and the Ashtoreths.

Jdg 2:14  And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel. So He delivered them into the hands of plunderers who despoiled them; and He sold them into the hands of their enemies all around, so that they could no longer stand before their enemies.

 

Every time they repented, God raised up a judge to deliver them out of captivity. Some of the more notable ones were Gideon and Samson. The best way to understand this time is to read the book of Judges. 

 

The time of the judges was a cruel time in history with death a common thing. Every one rejected God and they did what was right in their own eyes.

 

Jdg 17:6  In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes.

 

Sexual perversion became rife during the time of the judges, just as it always has since the creation of man. The following account is about a woman who was sexually abused, and died from that abuse.

 

Jdg 19:22  As they were enjoying themselves, suddenly certain men of the city, perverted men, surrounded the house and beat on the door. They spoke to the master of the house, the old man, saying, "Bring out the man who came to your house, that we may know him carnally!"

Jdg 19:23  But the man, the master of the house, went out to them and said to them, "No, my brethren! I beg you, do not act so wickedly! Seeing this man has come into my house, do not commit this outrage.

Jdg 19:24  "Look, here is my virgin daughter and the man's concubine; let me bring them out now. Humble them, and do with them as you please; but to this man do not do such a vile thing!"

Jdg 19:25  But the men would not heed him. So the man took his concubine and brought her out to them. And they knew her and abused her all night until morning; and when the day began to break, they let her go.

Jdg 19:26  Then the woman came as the day was dawning, and fell down at the door of the man's house where her master was, till it was light.

Jdg 19:27  When her master arose in the morning, and opened the doors of the house and went out to go his way, there was his concubine, fallen at the door of the house with her hands on the threshold.

 

The time of the judges ended when the Israelites decided that they wanted a king.


 

CHAPTER 19
 

RUTH



The book of Ruth is an absolutely beautiful account of how gentiles should be accepted in Israel. It is the complete opposite of how Israelites normally take on pagan gods when they intermix with pagan nations. 

 

Ruth was a Moabite who had married an Israelite husband. Ruth’s husband died.

 

Rth 1:4  Now they took wives of the women of Moab: the name of the one was Orpah, and the name of the other Ruth. And they dwelt there about ten years.

Rth 1:5  Then both Mahlon and Chilion also died; so the woman survived her two sons and her husband.

 

Naomi was Ruth’s mother in law, and only wanted what was best for Ruth. Naomi did not try and force Ruth to become an Israelite. 

 

Rth 1:8  And Naomi said to her two daughters-in-law, "Go, return each to her mother's house. The LORD deal kindly with you, as you have dealt with the dead and with me.

 

Notice Ruth’s beautiful reply, ‘your God will be my God.’

 

Rth 1:14  Then they lifted up their voices and wept again; and Orpah kissed her mother-in-law, but Ruth clung to her.

Rth 1:15  And she said, "Look, your sister-in-law has gone back to her people and to her gods; return after your sister-in-law."

Rth 1:16  But Ruth said: "Entreat me not to leave you, Or to turn back from following after you; For wherever you go, I will go; And wherever you lodge, I will lodge; Your people shall be my people, And your God, my God.

Rth 1:17  Where you die, I will die, And there will I be buried. The LORD do so to me, and more also, If anything but death parts you and me."

 

What a stark contrast to the Israelites who went whoring after pagan gods.

 

Deu 31:16  And the LORD said to Moses: "Behold, you will rest with your fathers; and this people will rise and play the harlot with the gods of the foreigners of the land, where they go to be among them, and they will forsake Me and break My covenant which I have made with them.

 

The book of Ruth tells us how to treat strangers. We must look after strangers, those of the gentile nations: but we must not accept their pagan gods.

 

Exo 22:21  "You shall neither mistreat a stranger nor oppress him, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.

 

Exo 23:9  "Also you shall not oppress a stranger, for you know the heart of a stranger, because you were strangers in the land of Egypt.

 

Jer 7:6  "if you do not oppress the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and do not shed innocent blood in this place, or walk after other gods to your hurt,

 

Zec 7:10  Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, The alien or the poor. Let none of you plan evil in his heart Against his brother.'

 

Mal 3:5  And I will come near you for judgment; I will be a swift witness Against sorcerers, Against adulterers, Against perjurers, Against those who exploit wage earners and widows and orphans, And against those who turn away an alien; Because they do not fear Me," Says the LORD of hosts.

 

Israel must take care of strangers, but they must not serve their gods.

 

Jdg 3:5  Thus the children of Israel dwelt among the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites.

Jdg 3:6  And they took their daughters to be their wives, and gave their daughters to their sons; and they served their gods.

Jdg 3:7  So the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD. They forgot the LORD their God, and served the Baals and Asherahs.

 

It is very important to heed God's words on the immigration subject, at a time when Jacob is being inundated with Arabs, in the form of boat people entering Jacob illegally.  Most people do not want them to come to their countries because they bring all their customs, and worship with them.  Now it is common to see how Jacob has catered to these people with schools, churches, food preparation, clothing standards all geared for their worship of false gods. 

 

Even in jail we have Muslim prayer meetings, Halal foods it goes on and on.   WE CATER TO THEIR WORSHIP STANDARDS.............THIS SHOULD NOT BE IN ISRAEL.

 

GOD WARNS AGAINST THIS VERY THING IN ISRAEL

 

Ruth did not bring the gods of Moab to Israel. She rejected those gods for the God of Israel. Ruth married Boaz, and became part of the genealogy of Christ.

 

Mat 1:5  Salmon begot Boaz by Rahab, Boaz begot Obed by Ruth, Obed begot Jesse,

 

Modern day Israel does take care of the stranger, but we do it on their terms. The gentile people bring their pagan gods with them. They hate our way of life, and refuse to change to our standards, even though they are happy to take advantage of the blessings given to us. 

 

Our Nations show more respect to Budda, Allah, and other pagan gods, than they do to the God of Israel. God is blasphemed continually by Israel, but the pagan gods are given respect. 

 

What a contrast Ruth is to Israel during the time of the judges. She forsook her gods, and accepted the God of Israel. This is how gentiles must be accepted into Israel

 

If gentiles will not accept God and only want to serve their false gods, they should be sent back to their homeland.

 


CHAPTER 20

 

SAMUEL AND SAUL 

 


Samuel was a prophet who saw the end of the time of the judges, and the beginning of the time of the kings. He was born to Hannah who made a vow to God.

 

1Sa 1:11  Then she made a vow and said, "O LORD of hosts, if You will indeed look on the affliction of Your maidservant and remember me, and not forget Your maidservant, but will give Your maidservant a male child, then I will give him to the LORD all the days of his life, and no razor shall come upon his head."

 

God approved of the birth of Samuel.

 

1Sa 1:17  Then Eli answered and said, "Go in peace, and the God of Israel grant your petition which you have asked of Him."

 

1Sa 1:20  So it came to pass in the process of time that Hannah conceived and bore a son, and called his name Samuel, saying, "Because I have asked for him from the LORD."

 

Samuel was to be lent to the Lord all the days of his life.

 

1Sa 1:28  "Therefore I also have lent him to the LORD; as long as he lives he shall be lent to the LORD." So they worshiped the LORD there.

 

God called to Samuel.

 

1Sa 3:4  that the LORD called Samuel. And he answered, "Here I am!"

 

God spoke to Samuel.

 

1Sa 3:11  Then the LORD said to Samuel: "Behold, I will do something in Israel at which both ears of everyone who hears it will tingle.

1Sa 3:12  "In that day I will perform against Eli all that I have spoken concerning his house, from beginning to end.

1Sa 3:13  "For I have told him that I will judge his house forever for the iniquity which he knows, because his sons made themselves vile, and he did not restrain them.

1Sa 3:14  "And therefore I have sworn to the house of Eli that the iniquity of Eli's house shall not be atoned for by sacrifice or offering forever."

 

All Israel knew that Samuel was to be a prophet.

 

1Sa 3:20  And all Israel from Dan to Beersheba knew that Samuel had been established as a prophet of the LORD.

 

The Ark of the Lord was taken by the Philistines; and Eli and his sons died.

 

1Sa 4:17  So the messenger answered and said, "Israel has fled before the Philistines, and there has been a great slaughter among the people. Also your two sons, Hophni and Phinehas, are dead; and the ark of God has been captured."

1Sa 4:18  Then it happened, when he made mention of the ark of God, that Eli fell off the seat backward by the side of the gate; and his neck was broken and he died, for the man was old and heavy. And he had judged Israel forty years.

 

The ark of the Lord brought plagues and death to the Philistines, till they returned it to Israel.

 

1Sa 6:21  So they sent messengers to the inhabitants of Kirjath Jearim, saying, "The Philistines have brought back the ark of the LORD; come down and take it up with you."

 

Philistines were kept at bay during the time of Samuel.

 

1Sa 7:13  So the Philistines were subdued, and they did not come anymore into the territory of Israel. And the hand of the LORD was against the Philistines all the days of Samuel.

 

Israel wanted a king, instead of God. 

 

1Sa 8:6  But the thing displeased Samuel when they said, "Give us a king to judge us." So Samuel prayed to the LORD.

1Sa 8:7  And the LORD said to Samuel, "Heed the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them.

 

Samuel anointed Saul to be the first king of Israel.

 

1Sa 10:1  Then Samuel took a flask of oil and poured it on his head, and kissed him and said: "Is it not because the LORD has anointed you commander over His inheritance?

 

Saul was told to wait seven days.

 

1Sa 10:8  "You shall go down before me to Gilgal; and surely I will come down to you to offer burnt offerings and make sacrifices of peace offerings. Seven days you shall wait, till I come to you and show you what you should do."

 

Saul sacrificed the offering without waiting for Samuel.

 

1Sa 13:8  Then he waited seven days, according to the time set by Samuel. But Samuel did not come to Gilgal; and the people were scattered from him.

1Sa 13:9  So Saul said, "Bring a burnt offering and peace offerings here to me." And he offered the burnt offering.

 

Saul failed the test, and his dynasty was to be ended.

 

1Sa 13:13  And Samuel said to Saul, "You have done foolishly. You have not kept the commandment of the LORD your God, which He commanded you. For now the LORD would have established your kingdom over Israel forever.

1Sa 13:14  "But now your kingdom shall not continue. The LORD has sought for Himself a man after His own heart, and the LORD has commanded him to be commander over His people, because you have not kept what the LORD commanded you."

 

1Sa 15:10  Now the word of the LORD came to Samuel, saying,

1Sa 15:11  "I greatly regret that I have set up Saul as king, for he has turned back from following Me, and has not performed My commandments." And it grieved Samuel, and he cried out to the LORD all night.

 

When Samuel died: Saul went to a medium.


1Sa 28:7  Then Saul said to his servants, "Find me a woman who is a medium, that I may go to her and inquire of her." And his servants said to him, "In fact, there is a woman who is a medium at En Dor."


The medium saw a God come up from the ground, in the form of Samuel.


1Sa 28:13  And the king said to her, "Do not be afraid. What did you see?" And the woman said to Saul, "I saw a spirit ascending out of the earth."

1Sa 28:14  So he said to her, "What is his form?" And she said, "An old man is coming up, and he is covered with a mantle." And Saul perceived that it was Samuel, and he stooped with his face to the ground and bowed down.

 

A God had come up from the bottomless pit, imitating the deceased Samuel. This was one of the sons of God who are in the bottomless pit. 

 

The bogus Samuel predicted Saul’s death, and said he would be with him next day.


1Sa 28:19  "Moreover the LORD will also deliver Israel with you into the hand of the Philistines. And tomorrow you and your sons will be with me. The LORD will also deliver the army of Israel into the hand of the Philistines."

 

King Saul was chosen by God to be king, and, in the beginning, he had all the correct attributes. But later he disobeyed God and his dynasty was cut off.

 

1Sa 15:17  So Samuel said, "When you were little in your own eyes, were you not head of the tribes of Israel? And did not the LORD anoint you king over Israel?

1Sa 15:18  "Now the LORD sent you on a mission, and said, 'Go, and utterly destroy the sinners, the Amalekites, and fight against them until they are consumed.'

1Sa 15:19  "Why then did you not obey the voice of the LORD? Why did you swoop down on the spoil, and do evil in the sight of the LORD?"


 

CHAPTER 21


DAVID

 

 

Samuel anointed David to be king many years before he actually did become the king. 

 

1Sa 16:1  Now the LORD said to Samuel, "How long will you mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? Fill your horn with oil, and go; I am sending you to Jesse the Bethlehemite. For I have provided Myself a king among his sons."

 

1Sa 16:7  But the LORD said to Samuel, "Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have refused him. For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart."

 

1Sa 16:11  And Samuel said to Jesse, "Are all the young men here?" Then he said, "There remains yet the youngest, and there he is, keeping the sheep." And Samuel said to Jesse, "Send and bring him. For we will not sit down till he comes here."

 

Jesse had eight sons in the account of Samuel, and seven sons in the account of Chronicles. 

 

1Sa 16:10  Thus Jesse made seven of his sons pass before Samuel. And Samuel said to Jesse, "The LORD has not chosen these."

1Sa 16:11  And Samuel said to Jesse, "Are all the young men here?" Then he said, "There remains yet the youngest, and there he is, keeping the sheep." And Samuel said to Jesse, "Send and bring him. For we will not sit down till he comes here."

 

1Sa 17:12  Now David was the son of that Ephrathite of Bethlehem Judah, whose name was Jesse, and who had eight sons. And the man was old, advanced in years, in the days of Saul.

 

1Ch 2:13  Jesse begot Eliab his firstborn, Abinadab the second, Shimea the third,

1Ch 2:14  Nethanel the fourth, Raddai the fifth,

1Ch 2:15  Ozem the sixth, and David the seventh.

 

There are two Davids, both with a father called Jesse. One Jesse had eight sons, and one Jesse had seven sons. 

 

The David who played the harp was a man of war.

 

1Sa 16:18  Then one of the servants answered and said, "Look, I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite, who is skillful in playing, a mighty man of valor, a man of war, prudent in speech, and a handsome person; and the LORD is with him."

1Sa 16:19  Therefore Saul sent messengers to Jesse, and said, "Send me your son David, who is with the sheep."

 

The David who slew Goliath was a youth.

 

1Sa 17:33  And Saul said to David, "You are not able to go against this Philistine to fight with him; for you are a youth, and he a man of war from his youth."

 

Saul did not know the young David, but he loved the other David, who was his armour bearer.

 

1Sa 17:55  When Saul saw David going out against the Philistine, he said to Abner, the commander of the army, "Abner, whose son is this youth?" And Abner said, "As your soul lives, O king, I do not know."

1Sa 17:56  So the king said, "Inquire whose son this young man is."


Notice the following scripture this David was loved by Saul and was his armour bearer.


1Sa 16:21  So David came to Saul and stood before him. And he loved him greatly, and he became his armorbearer.


The differences between the two Davids become apparent, when you are convinced that God cannot lie. The genealogies are different, and there are differences in the times of their reign. They are both promised descendants forever.


The two different Davids are mentioned regarding forever: one a king, and one a prince.

 

Eze 37:24  "David My servant shall be king over them, and they shall all have one shepherd; they shall also walk in My judgments and observe My statutes, and do them.

Eze 37:25  "Then they shall dwell in the land that I have given to Jacob My servant, where your fathers dwelt; and they shall dwell there, they, their children, and their children's children, forever; and My servant David shall be their prince forever.


 

CHAPTER 22

 

GOD’S MAGNIFICENT CREATION



Psa 19:1
  The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.

 

At the time of the creation; everything was very good.

 

Gen 1:31  Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

 

God’s creation which was very good, is subject to depravity.

 

Rom 8:20  For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope;

 

Depravity entered the world from the time of the beginning; this was the original creation.

 

Joh 8:44  "You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.

 

God destroyed the original creation because of depravity.

 

Psa 104:29  You hide Your face, they are troubled; You take away their breath, they die and return to their dust.

Psa 104:30  You send forth Your Spirit, they are created; And You renew the face of the earth.

 

Note the dual promise from God. God had used a flood to destroy the original animal, and plant life, and all humanity. He then used a flood to destroy mankind at the time of Noah. The flood at the time of Noah did not destroy the earth; the flood which was before Adam and Eve destroyed the face of the earth, and it had to be renewed. 

 

Gen 9:11  "Thus I establish My covenant with you: Never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of the flood; never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth."

 

2Pe 3:6  by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water.

 

God used disasters of nature to destroy mankind, and the earth. He then destroyed mankind [apart from Noah and his family] by the same method. The land will continue to vomit out sinners. Natural disasters will continue, and increase as the end time nears.

 

Lev 18:25  'For the land is defiled; therefore I visit the punishment of its iniquity upon it, and the land vomits out its inhabitants.

Lev 18:26  'You shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations, either any of your own nation or any stranger who dwells among you

Lev 18:27  '(for all these abominations the men of the land have done, who were before you, and thus the land is defiled),

Lev 18:28  'lest the land vomit you out also when you defile it, as it vomited out the nations that were before you.

 

Job 38:12  "Have you commanded the morning since your days began, And caused the dawn to know its place,

Job 38:13  That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, And the wicked be shaken out of it?

 

Job 38:22  "Have you entered the treasury of snow, Or have you seen the treasury of hail,

Job 38:23  Which I have reserved for the time of trouble, For the day of battle and war?

 

2Pe 3:7  But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

 

God has made the vast universe, including planet earth, so that it cannot bear sin. The whole universe is barren, and in decay, because of the original sins of the devil, and the sins of created humans. God renewed the earth at the time He created Adam, and Eve. He has not yet renewed the universe. 

 

The land of Judah/ Israel is the Promised Land, and was a land of milk and honey; abounding in beauty, and fertility. Many years of sin have brought this part of the earth to be a land of desert, and decay. 

 

The depravity of the people of this earth is very great as the time of the end draws near. The earth is on the verge of vomiting out the sinners. The tsunami of 2004 killed 250,000 people, and is an example of the earth vomiting out sinners. 

 

Talk about the wickedness of sin, mankind just does not consider the ramifications of it. Because of sin, mankind’s future is eternal death. [Only Christ’s sacrifice gives us escape from that.] Because of sin, the universe is decaying, and waxing old.

 

Psa 102:25  Of old You laid the foundation of the earth, And the heavens are the work of Your hands.

Psa 102:26  They will perish, but You will endure; Yes, they will all grow old like a garment; Like a cloak You will change them, And they will be changed.

 

Creation, which is in pain, is waiting for the glorious liberty of the children of God.

 

Rom 8:19  For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.

 

Rom 8:21  because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

Rom 8:22  For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now.

 

The universe has perished since the original creation, and, so far, only the earth has been renewed. God is going to use fire to destroy the universe, and then He is going to change the perished universe into a new universe where righteousness dwells. The earth mentioned in the next verse is the soil on the planets, not the planet earth.

 

2Pe 3:10  But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.

2Pe 3:11  Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness,

2Pe 3:12  looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat?

2Pe 3:13  Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.

 

What a beautiful account of the great love of the great God. Mankind and the universe have a death sentence, because of sin. Mankind can inherit eternal life, because of Christ, and the universe will live again, because of those who have accepted Christ’s sacrifice, and have attained eternal life. [This scripture is well worth quoting twice.]

 

2Pe 3:13  Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.

 

This article is being finished with some of the verses, which apply to the earth after righteousness dwells in it; and also how it was at creation.

 

Psa 107:35  He turns a wilderness into pools of water, And dry land into watersprings.

Psa 107:36  There He makes the hungry dwell, That they may establish a city for a dwelling place,

Psa 107:37  And sow fields and plant vineyards, That they may yield a fruitful harvest.

Psa 107:38  He also blesses them, and they multiply greatly; And He does not let their cattle decrease.

 

Isa 35:1  The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them, And the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose;

Isa 35:2  It shall blossom abundantly and rejoice, Even with joy and singing. The glory of Lebanon shall be given to it, The excellence of Carmel and Sharon. They shall see the glory of the LORD, The excellency of our God.

 

Eze 11:20  "that they may walk in My statutes and keep My judgments and do them; and they shall be My people, and I will be their God.

 

Amo 9:13  "Behold, the days are coming," says the LORD, "When the plowman shall overtake the reaper, And the treader of grapes him who sows seed; The mountains shall drip with sweet wine, And all the hills shall flow with it.

 

Rev 21:1  Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea.

Rev 21:2  Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

Rev 21:3  And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God.

Rev 21:4  "And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away."

Rev 21:5  Then He who sat on the throne said, "Behold, I make all things new." And He said to me, "Write, for these words are true and faithful."

 

Isa 9:7  Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.


Job 38:1
  Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said:

Job 38:2  "Who is this who darkens counsel By words without knowledge?

Job 38:3  Now prepare yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer Me.

Job 38:4  "Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding.

Job 38:5  Who determined its measurements? Surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it?

Job 38:6  To what were its foundations fastened? Or who laid its cornerstone,

Job 38:7  When the morning stars sang together, And all the sons of God shouted for joy?

Job 38:8  "Or who shut in the sea with doors, When it burst forth and issued from the womb;

Job 38:9  When I made the clouds its garment, And thick darkness its swaddling band;

Job 38:10  When I fixed My limit for it, And set bars and doors;

Job 38:11  When I said, 'This far you may come, but no farther, And here your proud waves must stop!'

Job 38:12  "Have you commanded the morning since your days began, And caused the dawn to know its place,

Job 38:13  That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, And the wicked be shaken out of it?

Job 38:14  It takes on form like clay under a seal, And stands out like a garment.

Job 38:15  From the wicked their light is withheld, And the upraised arm is broken.

Job 38:16  "Have you entered the springs of the sea? Or have you walked in search of the depths?

Job 38:17  Have the gates of death been revealed to you? Or have you seen the doors of the shadow of death?

Job 38:18  Have you comprehended the breadth of the earth? Tell Me, if you know all this.

Job 38:19  "Where is the way to the dwelling of light? And darkness, where is its place,

Job 38:20  That you may take it to its territory, That you may know the paths to its home?

Job 38:21  Do you know it, because you were born then, Or because the number of your days is great?

Job 38:22  "Have you entered the treasury of snow, Or have you seen the treasury of hail,

Job 38:23  Which I have reserved for the time of trouble, For the day of battle and war?

Job 38:24  By what way is light diffused, Or the east wind scattered over the earth?

Job 38:25  "Who has divided a channel for the overflowing water, Or a path for the thunderbolt,

Job 38:26  To cause it to rain on a land where there is no one, A wilderness in which there is no man;

Job 38:27  To satisfy the desolate waste, And cause to spring forth the growth of tender grass?

Job 38:28  Has the rain a father? Or who has begotten the drops of dew?

Job 38:29  From whose womb comes the ice? And the frost of heaven, who gives it birth?

Job 38:30  The waters harden like stone, And the surface of the deep is frozen.

Job 38:31  "Can you bind the cluster of the Pleiades, Or loose the belt of Orion?

Job 38:32  Can you bring out Mazzaroth in its season? Or can you guide the Great Bear with its cubs?

Job 38:33  Do you know the ordinances of the heavens? Can you set their dominion over the earth?

Job 38:34  "Can you lift up your voice to the clouds, That an abundance of water may cover you?

Job 38:35  Can you send out lightnings, that they may go, And say to you, 'Here we are!'?

Job 38:36  Who has put wisdom in the mind? Or who has given understanding to the heart?

Job 38:37  Who can number the clouds by wisdom? Or who can pour out the bottles of heaven,

Job 38:38  When the dust hardens in clumps, And the clods cling together?

Job 38:39  "Can you hunt the prey for the lion, Or satisfy the appetite of the young lions,

Job 38:40  When they crouch in their dens, Or lurk in their lairs to lie in wait?

Job 38:41  Who provides food for the raven, When its young ones cry to God, And wander about for lack of food?

 

Rev 5:13  And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying: "Blessing and honor and glory and power Be to Him who sits on the throne, And to the Lamb, forever and ever!"

 

Psa 16:11  You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

 

When I read the above scriptures I tremble at the utter magnificence of the Great God of creation.
