YHWH Manifest in Abraham Isaac & Jacob

The three patriarchs are mentioned throughout the bible.
 ” And God heard their groaning (in Egypt), and God remembered His Covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob (Ex.2.24)
and
“The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified His Son Jesus.” (Acts 3:13).
There are many examples how YHWH manifested or “revealed” Himself through these men, here are a few…

ABRAHAM

Abraham translates in Hebrew “Father of a Multitude”
YHWH revealed Himself through this man by His Promise

” I will make of thee a great nation… and IN THEE shall all FAMILIES of the earth be blessed” (Gen.12:2-3).

Abraham most notably manifested YHWH as a Father on Mt. Moriah when he was ready to offer his son (like YHWH did)

” By Myself have I sworn, saith YHWH , for because thou (Abraham) hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son: That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply THY SEED as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and THY SEED shall possess the gate of his enemies; And in THY SEED shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice”. (Gen.22:16-18)

ISAAC
YHWH manifests or “reveals” Himself through a son saying

” in Isaac (the son) shall thy seed be called” (Gen.21:12)

” Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac” (Gen.22:2)

Isaac was not a young child when ready to be offered up at Mt. Moriah. most believe he would have been around 33 yr old, the same age as our Lord at the time of his death. This shows Isaac, like Christ, willingly allowed his father to offer him as a burnt offering.
  • “And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering? And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so THEY went BOTH of them together” (Gen.22:7-8).

This is an excellent example or “type” of YHWH going up WITH HIS SON for “an offering for sin” (Isa.53:10).
They went up together, as YHWH was with Jesus, except YHWH had to let His son die…
  • ” they shall look upon ME whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son:” (Zech.12:10)

Jesus is NOT YHWH but YHWH ,as a Father, did manifest himself through His Son.
 JACOB
YHWH repeated the promises to Abraham through Jacob by saying
  • ” in thy seed shall all the NATIONS of the earth be blessed” (Gen.26:4)

YHWH told Abraham all the “families” shall be blessed and here with Jacob all the “nations” shall be blessed. This is for a reason.
Jacob , whose later name was changed to Israel or “Prince of El” , begat 12 sons who became the 12 Tribes of Israel.
This became the Nation of Israel and the First Kingdom of God on earth.
Jacob reminded Joseph of this at the end of his life what YHWH promised to him
  • ” I will make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, and I will make of thee a MULTITUDE of people; and will give this land to thy seed after thee for an everlasting possession” (Gen.48:4).

This is how YHWH will manifest or “reveal” Himself through a Multitude

We can be a part of that MULTITUDE seed!

  • ” For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all ONE in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, THEN ARE YE ABRAHAM’S SEED, and HEIRS according to the PROMISE” (Gal.3:27-29).

YHWH Plan from the Beginning – To make man in His Image and His Likeness

YHWH or Yahweh = “He will be”

from “hayah asher hayah” = ” I will be whom I will be” (Ex.3:14)
or
HE WILL BE WHOM HE WILL BE
His Name , YHWH , teaches GOD MANIFISTATION
Example:
Yahweh Elohim Israel
“He will be” + “Mighty Ones (plural) + “Prince/to Rule with El”
This is our High and Holy calling! To be equal to the Elohim (LK.20:36)
YHWH purpose for man from the Beginning
  • “Elohim said Let us make man in OUR image, after OUR likeness” (Gen.2:26)

This is “perfect tense” meaning has not happened yet, but since YHWH’s Word does “not come back void” (Isa.55:11), it will be accomplished after the Resurrection!
like Jesus prayed to YHWH
  • “And the GLORY which Thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be ONE, even as we are ONE” (John 17:22)

And Paul explains:
  • “That in the dispensation of the fulness of times He might gather together in ONE all things IN CHRIST, both things which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him, which is the earnest of OUR INHERITANCE” (Eph.1:10-11)

and

“When HE shall come TO BE GLORIFIED IN HIS SAINTS, and to be admired in all them that believe” (1 Thess.1:10)

 

“And all the people of the earth shall see that THOU art called by The Name YAHWEH” (DT.28:10)

YHWH “HE WILL BE”

Genesis 6 – Who are the Sons of God

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinrssyoutubevimeotumblrinstagramFacebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinrssyoutubevimeotumblrinstagram

1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,

2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were beautiful; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

3 And Yahweh said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

4 There were Nephilim in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men of the age, men of renown.

5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

6 And it repented Yahweh that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart.

~Genesis 6:1-6

 

Who are the Sons of God?

We know they are NOT immortal angels because they were marrying. Jesus said that angels do NOT marry (Matthew 22:30)
Answer:

Back in Genesis 4, we are told after Seth was born, that men began to Call upon The Name Yahweh.

Literally in the Hebrew: they “Called themselves by The Name Yahweh”.

These men knew and worshiped the True and Living God. We find throughout scripture, men such as Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David and the prophets all “Called upon the Name Yahweh”.

 

The “Sons of God” is a Title given to those of the “seed of the woman” (Gen.3:15), that is, those who are following after Godly things of the Spirit.

 

How do we prove this?

Answer: With the bible

 

Here’s a few examples:

“That YOU may be blameless and harmless, the SONS OF GOD, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world..” (Philipians 2:15)

“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the SONS OF GOD.” (Romans 8:14)

and

Behold, what manner of Love has the Father bestowed upon us, that WE should be called the SONS OF GOD: therefore the world knows us not, because it knew him not.

Beloved, now are WE the SONS OF GOD, and it does not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he (Christ) shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is”. (1 John 3:1-2)

The Sons of God is just a Title, it can actually be MEN & WOMEN

Who are the Daughters of Men?

This also is a Title given to those of the line of Cain named in Gen.4, that went away from God.

These are the people, MEN & WOMEN, who follow after the mind of the flesh; the seed of the serpent.

In the book of Malachi, we are told that “Judah dealt treacherously” and they have “profaned the Holiness of Yahweh” by marrying “THE DAUGHTER of a strange god.” ~(Malachi 2:11)

This means in Malachi’s Day, long after the flood, Judah who were supposed to be Holy (“separate”) were MARRYING people of other religions.

This same thing was happening in Noah’s day. The Sons of God were falling away from the True and Living God to intermarrying with the daughters of men, and the whole earth became corrupt, because of this God brought the Great Flood. (Genesis 6:7)

We are told in scripture that the Eklessia (the church) is the bride of Christ. This principle is explained in Ephesians 5:23-32. The Eklessia is obviously not only women but men too, but this is it’s title.

In the same manner there is also a woman described in scripture, an anti-type of the eklessia, who went astray. She is a woman who sits on many waters and is called the “Mother of all Harlots” who is “drunk with the blood of the saints.” (Revelation 17:1-6)

This is not an actual woman but refers to a political/religious system composed of by people.

 

There are 2 classes of people in the world

The Seed of the Woman = those that follow God’s Ways of the Spirit (Sons of God)

The seed of the serpent = those who follow the ways of the Flesh (Daughters of men)

In Noah’s day these 2 classes of people were intermarrying and corrupting the whole earth, till the point where God destroyed everyone except eight people in the Ark.

Likewise, Paul warns us today:

14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath Righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion has Light with darkness?15 And what concord has Christ with Belial? or what part has he that Believeth with an unbeliever?16 And what agreement has the Temple of God with idols? for you are the Temple of the Living God; as God has said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate….

~2 Cor.6:14-17

 

Nimrod and his Kingdom

Follow........
Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinrssyoutubevimeotumblrinstagramFacebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinrssyoutubevimeotumblrinstagram

Nimrod is the founder of Babel aka Babylon (Gen.10:8-10, 11:1-9).

Nimrod is the 13th generation from Adam.

The name “Nimrod”  נמרד  comes from the Hebrew word  מרד  “marad” (H4775) which means “to be rebellious” or “to revolt”.  This word is used many times throughout scripture but here’s a few, Gen.14:4 , Josh.22:29 , Job.24:13 .

The letter  נ (nun) is added to “marad” to makes Nimrod =  “He will rebel”

Once in 1 Chron.1:10  his name is spelled  נמרוד  which may mean “we shall rebel” or “let us rebel”

Nimrod was a “mighty hunter” (Gen.10:9) .   It is said that at this time, there may have only been a few hundred people in the earth but the number of wild animals was growing at a much faster rate.  These wild animals caused much terror in the land because they were outnumbering and killing the people.  But Nimrod, the Mighty Hunter, was the man who was able to subdue them.  So people admired him and looked to him for protection.

Nimrod not only was a hunter of wild animals, but also became a Hunter of Men.  And he was able to take men away from God and unite them unto himself.

Gen.10:10

 And the beginning of his kingdom was BABEL, and Erech (Iraq), and Accad, and Calneh, IN THE LAND OF SHINAR

This is the first “kingdom” mentioned in the bible!  It is a rival system to God’s Kingdom.

Gen.10:11-12

Out of that land went forth Asshur (Assyria), and builded Nineveh, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah, And Resen between Nineveh and Calah: the same is a great city.

Gen.11:2

…they found a plain in the land of SHINAR; and they dwelt there.

The record says:

” the whole earth was of one language, and of one SPEECH“.  (Gen.11:1)

The word “speech” here is the Hebrew word “dabar” (H1697)

The word “dabar” is a very important word in the bible and this is the first time it is used in the bible. The word “dabar” is not restrained to only mean “word” but also a “thing” or “matter” In essence the “plan or purpose” of something.

In the Septuagint, the Greek word “logos” (G3056) is used for the word ‘dabar’.

Thayers Lexicon expresses it is an “INWARD THOUGHT of an outward action.”  It designates “reason, purpose”. To give “account” in Mt.12:36, Rom.14:12.  It is a “conception, idea, gathered in the Mind, not only expressed in words.

Here, in the days of Nimrod, they INTENDED to make a name for themselves, not YHWH.

Gen.11:4

And they said, Come, let us build OURSELVES a city and a TOWER, whose top may reach unto heaven; and LET US MAKE US A NAME, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

After the Flood, God had commanded they “be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth”  (Gen.9:1)

But they did not want to do this.

Instead of dwelling in the Tabernacle of the God of Shem (Gen.9:26-27)  they would build their own place of worship, a rival temple and the “Tower whose top would reach to heaven” (Gen.11:4),  not only to protect them from another flood,  but as a REBELLION against God.

God destroyed this temple and scattered the people by confusing their language  (Gen.11:5-9),  but the ideology from Babylon has not changed.

Nimrod’s government, the first “kingdom” recorded in scripture, is the first of the kingdoms of men.  Interestingly,  even the architecture of the European Union Parliament building in Strasbourg, France was modeled after the artist Brueghel’s depiction of the Tower of Babel.

But Nimrod’s kingdom was a Political and Religious system. He was a king priest Imposter.   Nimrod himself claimed to be a god and he made heros/gods of men.

Nimrod was a real man and is recorded throughout ancient Near East literature by name and also by other names throughout Mesopotamia from Sumeria, Babylon, Assyria and Hittites.  Even in Palestine tablets have been found with this man’s name on it.

Archaelogists have found relics providing evidence that the Sumerians (from Sumer see map above) were a “Religio-Politico state”.  The Sumerians are believed to be the oldest civilization on earth.  They were advanced in areas of mathematics and communication.  They built levees and irrigation canals, advanced cultivation and harvesting techniques, skilled craftsmen, carpenters, metalworkers, sculptors, merchants, boatman, military, even doctors and PRIESTS.

The name Sumer actually comes from the name of Nimrod’s wife, Sumeramis or Semeramis.  This system influenced the Ancient Near East for over 3000 years.  Other cultures that followed the Sumerian system were Accad, Babylon, Assyria and Persia which became the basis of the Greek and Roman systems of rule.  The Sumerians were very important historically and biblically.

The Sumerian religion centered around worshipping the forces of nature.  This is where all the  FALSE DOCTRINES of a countless number of gods and goddesses, demons, fallen angels, making heroes of men, trinity, mother worship, going to heaven (Gen.11:4), immortal soul etc. originated.

These false teaching have spread through every generation, culture and religion around the world , CORRUPTING The Truth and making them fables, from very early until this day.

The Great Ziggurats, built in the days of Nimrod , were still in use up to the days of Nebuchadnezzar II and the remnants can still be seen today.

Most recently in March 2015, the terror group ISIS destroyed city of Nimrud.

This angered many people in the world who vow to rebuild and repair the damage.

But they shouldn’t work too hard,  because the prophet Micah says that he “that is to be Ruler in Israel” (Micah 5:2)   and he “shall waste the land of Assyria with the sword, and THE LAND OF NIMROD in the entrances thereof…” (Micah 5:6).

The record goes on:

10 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith Yahweh, that I will cut off thy horses out of the midst of thee, and I will destroy thy chariots:

11 And I will cut off the cities of thy land, and throw down all thy strong holds:

12 And I will cut off WITCHCRAFTS out of thine hand; and thou shalt have no more SORCERERS:

13 Thy GRAVEN IMAGES also will I cut off, and thy STANDING IMAGES out of the midst of thee; and thou shalt NO MORE worship the work of thine hands.

~Micah 5

 This presentation demonstrates with many examples that the book of Genesis is a foundation on which Jesus’ teaching is based.  It follows therefore that Genesis must also be fundamental to the belief and discipleship of any true follower of Jesus.

LIFE IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD

There a number of indications in the Scriptures that life in the Millennial age will, in some respects, be very much like life in the Garden of Eden.  The animals will all be vegetarian  – just as they were when created:– “The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.  And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.  And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice’ den” (Is.11v6-8 – see also Is.65v25).

Men will live to great ages, as they did before the flood – compare Gen.5 with Is.65v20-23 – “as the days of a tree are the days of my people”.  Just as before the curse there were no thorns and thistles (Gen.3v18), so, in the kingdom there will be fir trees and myrtle trees instead of thorns and briers, Is.55v13.  As in the mountain which was the Garden of Eden[1]: “They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain (Is.11v9) – so, just as there were no carnivorous or venomous creatures “in the beginning” there will not be any in the Millennium either.  A river will flow out of the temple and the city, divide & go east and west (Eze.47v1-12, Joel 3v18, Zech.14v8).  “The mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills,” (Mic.4v1) – just as the Garden of Eden was.

 

GENESIS AND THE BOOK OF REVELATION

Nowhere is this parallelism more clearly seen than at the end of the Book of Revelation.  The language of the last two chapters of Revelation has a number of remarkable echoes from the language of the first three chapters of the book of Genesis.  Genesis 1-3 describes “the beginning” Revelation 21-22 “the end” – but the two are intimately connected.  God’s purpose, begun in the creation of the physical world reaches its fulfilment in a spiritual world which is directly related to the physical.

When Adam broke God’s commandment in Eden his action did not cause God to introduce a new plan to deal with the situation.  Jesus said: “thou lovest me before the foundation of the world” (Jn.17v24).  An examination of the other nine occurrences of the phrase “the foundation of the world” will show that this terminology refers to the creation described in Gen.1-2.  God knew the Saviour and the way of salvation before he even created the first man[2].  It is logical therefore that the purpose, begun in the creative work of the six days should find its completion in the Sabbath of rest described in the final chapters of the Bible.

 

THE NEW CREATION

Gen.1v1 and Rev.21v1 both contain the phrase “heaven(s) and earth”.  In the latter there is “no more sea” – the seas not being gathered and named by God until Gen.1v10.  In Eden, Adam and Eve “heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day” (Gen.3v8); now “the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them and be their God” (Rev.21v3).

“All things” in Rev.21v5 are made new – as were all things in the original physical creation.  Light was created in Gen.1v3 before the formation of the sun, moon and stars[3].  Rev.21v23 & 22v5 state that the glory of God gives light to the city described in the previous verses.  It might be argued that these are spiritual depictions – but in Is.60v19-20 there is a description of the LORD being an everlasting light to Israel in the Millennium – which in turn echoes back to the time when he lit their path through the wilderness with a pillar of fire.

 

EDEN RESTORED

The city described from Rev.21v10 had “a wall great and high” (v.12).  I believe that the Garden of Eden was also surrounded by a wall, since once Adam had been expelled from it and the Cherubim placed at the east of the garden, there was no way in which he could get access from any other direction to the tree of life.  “The tree of life” was, of course, in the midst of the Garden of Eden (Gen.2v9), now in Rev.22v2 it has expanded into the wood of life, constantly fruitful and able to provide healing for the nations.  A river went out of Eden (Gen.2v10-14) to water the earth – it would have been a pure river (no pollution!) and would have sustained life wherever it flowed.  Now in Rev.22v1 “…a pure river of water of life [proceeded] out of the throne of God and of the Lamb”.  Again, it may be argued that this is a vision of spiritual things, but in Eze.47, Joel 3v18 & Zech.14v8 we are told of a literal river that will flow out of Jerusalem, divide (just like the river in Gen.2) and even heal the Dead Sea.  Truly Eden restored!

 

THE REMOVAL OF THE CURSE

The sin of man brought much evil into the world.  As a result of it both Eve and Adam would experience sorrow in their respective spheres of activity – Gen.3v16-17.  Death would also be the end result of their transgression – Gen.3v19.  Now in Rev.21v4 the glorious announcement is made that: “God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.  Death has finally been swallowed up in victory, the earth is now populated only by immortals and the consequences of Adam’s sin are finally removed.

In Gen.3v24 God caused the cherubim to dwell (placed = shakan) at the east of the Garden.  Adam and Eve could not walk in the way of the tree of life, they could only have limited fellowship with the cherubic manifestation.  Now, in Rev.22v3 John hears a great voice …saying: “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God”.  The curse of Gen.3v17 is finally removed – Rev.22v3 “And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it.”

 

ACCESS TO THE TREE OF LIFE

In Gen.3v22-23 God said: “Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden…”.  The contrasting picture is drawn in Rev.22v14 “Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city”.  In Eden there was a man who had been disobedient, who had not done God’s commandment – he was debarred from entering through the gate into the garden and had no right to the tree of life.  Now here are obedient people who have kept his word and to them is granted the right to go through the gate and partake of the tree of life.  Symbolic language yes – but Oh what glories it symbolises!  Let us strive to “do his commandments” that we may be granted the right of access to the tree of life in that day.

 

Bernard Burt

[1] See the previous article in this series “Behold the man is become as one of us” – p.XXX

[2] It is not of course being suggested that Jesus had any physical existence “before the foundation of the world” – Eph.1v4 shows that, in a similar way, every saint in Christ was chosen by God “before the foundation of the world”.  “Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world” (Acts 15v18.

[3] Light before the sun should not be an issue to those who know that “God is light, and in him is no darkness at all” (1 Jn.1v5).  It is however interesting to note that the latest NASA diagram of what is thought to have happened after “The Big Bang” http://www.nasa.gov/vision/universe/starsgalaxies/wmap_pol.html has light appearing 400 million years before the first stars!

A DIFFERENT WORLD

The world which God created “in the beginning” was a very different world to that in which we live today.  All things have not “continue(d) as they were from the beginning of creation” (2 Pet.3v4).  The purpose of this article is to draw attention to some of those differences, the changes which took place as a result of Adam’s sin and the moral lessons & implications for us today in all of these things.

 

THE WORLD BEFORE THE FIRST MAN

The first thing to notice is that God’s work was a complete creation: “and the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good” (Gen.1v12).  “The works were finished from the foundation of the world” (Heb.4v3).  Today, a tree bought from a nursery may take two or three years before it yields a useful crop of fruit.  In the beginning, everything was created fully-grown, mature – the trees “yielding fruit” – which Adam & Eve were commanded to eat – Gen.1v29 & 2v16.  So also with the living creatures which God created.  God did not make baby birds in nests but birds able to fly “in the open firmament of heaven” (Gen.1v20).  He created “great whales” and many other aquatic creatures able to swim & survive in the seas.

A very significant difference is described in v.30: “…to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth…I have given every green herb for meat…”.  All animals and birds, as created, were vegetarian.  This should not surprise us for, as will be shown in the next article in this series, in the kingdom they will revert to this state.  The kingdom of God, when established on the earth under the rule of the Lord Jesus Christ, will be Eden restored.

However, there was a serpent in Eden, a creature unlike modern snakes.  He was a beast of the field, he was made by Yahweh Elohim & he was more subtil than any other beast (all Gen.3v1).  The Hebrew word for “subtil” aruwm occurs eight times in the Book of Proverbs and there it is always translated “prudent”.  Jesus taught his disciples that they should be “wise as serpents” (Mt.10v16).  After the transgression the appearance of the serpent was changed “upon thy belly shalt thou go” (Gen.3v14) and he was deprived of the power of speech.

Another significant difference between the world as created and the world of today is stated in Gen.2v5-6: “…the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth…but there went up a mist from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground”.  We are not told when the first rain fell.  We know that the Flood was caused in part by intense rain, whether this was the first rain which fell on the earth we know not – except that in Gen.8 God speaks of setting his bow in the clouds as an assurance that he would not flood the earth again.  If there had been rain before the flood then from time to time the rainbow should have been seen on the earth but Gen.8v12-17 indicates that it had not been seen before.

Certainly there was no rain in Eden.  There was, however, a river: “And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted and became four heads…Pison…Gihon…Hiddekel…and Euphrates” (Gen.2v10-14).  This was indeed a remarkable river – but it has a parallel in Eze.47v1-10 – a river which dramatically increased in volume as it flowed away from its source.  Natural rivers don’t do this, their volume is augmented by tributaries flowing into them – the river which flowed out of Eden was the source water for four great rivers which watered the then land mass of the earth.  This, incidentally is further additional information, telling us that the geography of the earth then was very different from what it is now.

Another indication of how different the newly created world was, is that; since water flows downhill, and the river watered a vast area, the Garden of Eden must have been the highest point on at least that part of the earth!  This too foreshadows the Millennium when “the mountain of the LORD’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it” (Is.2v2).  Jerusalem, particularly the Temple Mount, will be the highest point on the earth!

Scripture indicates that the high mountain ranges of this present world (Alps, Andes, Himalayas, Rockies, etc. were formed after the flood: “Thou coverest [the earth] with the deep as with a garment, the waters stood above the mountains” (Ps.104v6) is an inspired commentary on the Flood – but note the next verses which describes what happened at the end of the deluge: “At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away.  The mountains ascend, the valleys descend unto the place which thou hast founded for them” (v.7-8AVm).  Thus the high mountain ranges of the present constitution of things – with their fossil bearing sedimentary rocks – were formed immediately after the flood – so the flood waters did not have to be deep enough to cover the present mountain systems of the earth.

There were no thorns or thistles in the world as created – Gen.3v18 tells us that these came into existence as part of the curse which God brought upon the ground (v.17) as a result of Adam’s sin.  Man’s toil was evidently greater after the curse: “in the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread…” (Gen.3v19); “This same shall comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands because of the ground which the LORD hath cursed” (Gen.5v29); “I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake…” (Gen.8v21) – does this imply an alleviation of the curse after the flood?

 

ADAM & EVE IN THE GARDEN

Just as with the rest of the creation, when it came to the making of man “in the image of God”; Adam & Eve were formed as adults, able to “multiply” and capable of responsible obedience to their Creator.  They were able to hear his word and were expected to obey it – they were “very good”.  They were commanded to eat “every herb bearing seed” (so there were no poisonous plants in the original creation) and “every tree in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed” (Gen.1v29).  So man, as created, was vegetarian.  Before Adam was formed of the dust of the ground “there was not a man to till the ground” 2v5 – so Adam was truly “the first man” (1 Cor.15v45).  Before Eve was “builded” from the side of Adam “there was not found an help meet for him’” 2v20.  Eve was therefore “the mother of all living” 3v20.  These verses completely rule out the possibility of any other humanoid race existing on the earth at that time.

Gen.2v25 tells us that Adam and Eve in their “very good” state were naked and not ashamed.  By implication from Gen.3v8 they were not afraid of angels who “walked in the garden in the cool of the day” – why should they be?  Here is another situation which, as the next article will show, foreshadows the kingdom age.

 

THE CONSEQUENCES OF EATING THE FRUIT

God had commanded: “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die (Gen.2v17).  Adam and Eve did eat of the fruit of this tree and certain consequences followed.  For the first time in their lives they experienced shame: “And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons” (Gen.3v7).  They covered the nakedness they had now become aware of – but they still felt naked when “they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden…” (v.8).  Although Adam was now adequately clothed in fig leaves he said “I was afraid, because I was naked” (v.10) i.e. his nakedness was more than just physical – it was a moral nakedness in the presence of God.  Here was a big change from the Adam of Gen.2v25 – and that change was transmitted to his descendants – Gen.32v30, Ex.3v6, Dt.5v26, Jud.6v22-23, & 13v22-23 are a few examples of men displaying fear when confronted by an angel.  Similarly nakedness and shame are associated together in the rest of Scripture in contrast to Gen.2v25, e.g. Ex.32v25, Is.20v4, 47v3, Jer.13v26, Phil.3v19, Rev.3v18 & 16v15.

There is no indication that Adam or Eve experienced sorrow before they ate of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.  Why should they?  Everything that God had made was “very good” (Gen.1v31).  Yet after their transgression we read: “…in sorrow shalt thou bring forth children…in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life” (Gen.3v16-17).  Again, the experience of sorrow has been the lot of mankind ever since Adam and Eve were expelled from the garden – this was a change – and it was passed on to their posterity: “And Adam…begat a son in his own likeness after his image…” (Gen.5v3).  Yet, as will be seen, sorrow will eventually be removed.

Another change which came as a result of their eating the fruit is stated by God himself: “Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil” (3v22).  In this state, God would not allow the man to eat of the tree of life and life forever – therefore he was sent out of the garden and the way to the tree of life was barred by the Cherubim (v.23-24).  Again, this change was transmitted to Adam’s descendants, so that the apostle concludes “all have sinned and come short of the glory of God” (Rom.3v23).  As a result of Adam’s sin death came into the world (Rom.5v12).  God said, “because thou hast hearkend unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree…unto dust shalt thou return” (Gen.3v17/19).  There is no escaping the implications of these words in Rom.5 & Gen.3.  Death is in the world as a result of Adam’s sin.  Everything that God had created was viewed by him as being “very good”; death, however, is an enemy – “the last enemy” – which will be destroyed at the end of the Millennium – 1 Cor.15v26, Rev.20v14 & 21v4. The effect of these transmitted changes is clearly seen when Gen.1v31 is compared with Gen.6v5: “And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good” – “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually”.  This latter state of mankind is the direct result of the consequences of the sin in Eden being transmitted throughout the posterity of Adam.

The great contrast in Rom.5v12-21 is that the disobedience of the first man brought sin & its consequence death into the world and the obedience of the “last Adam” (1 Cor.15v45) brought justification (righteousness) and life.

 

THE AGES OF THE PATRIARCHS

Another significant change which is recorded in the book of Genesis is in the lifespan of mankind.  Gen.5 records that Adam lived 930 years, Jared 962 & Methuselah 969.  Gen.11 states that Shem lived to 600 years, Eber 464, Serug 230 and Terah 205.  Subsequently the records show the lifespans of the patriarchs diminishing until, at the close of the book of Genesis, Joseph dies at 110.  This is perfectly reasonable in the light of the statement in Ch.1 that man, as created, was “very good” and that, unless he ate of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, there was no death sentence hanging over him.  The human organism was initially “very good’ but deteriorated as the effects of sin marred successive generations.  This will all be reversed for the mortal population in the millennium when men and women will again live to great ages.

The fact of men living to great ages before the flood has been disputed on the grounds that the three chronological accounts (The Hebrew Massoretic text, the Samaritan Pentateuch & the Septuagint) do not agree and therefore we cannot be certain of the chronology of the time.  This assertion is not valid however because the Septuagint chronology (which differs in many places from the Hebrew) has Methuselah living fourteen years beyond the flood and is therefore incorrect.  As long ago as 1815 Gesenius concluded that the Samaritan Pentateuch was a vulgar text with many corruptions and far inferior to the Hebrew[1].  However, whatever one’s views on these three texts may be, it is a fact that all of them have Adam living 930 years, Seth 912, Enos 905, Cainan 910, Mahaleel 895 & Noah 950 – so one cannot simply dismiss these great ages on the grounds of textual differences between manuscripts.  The correct thing to do is establish which manuscript is correct (the Hebrew) and then use the information it contains to construct a chronology.

 

CONCLUSIONS

The Bible teaches catastrophism, particularly in the Creation and the Flood.  God’s creative and destructive power was manifest in these early times.  All things have not “continue(d) as they were from the beginning of creation” (2 Pet.3v4).  The same power of God is about to be manifest again in the earth, first to overthrow and destroy the kingdom of men and then to create new heavens and a new earth wherein dwelleth righteousness (v.13).  Since the whole system in the midst of which we live is to be overthrown with all the thinking of men which underpins it, what manner of persons ought we to be in all holy conversation and godliness as we wait for that day? (v.11).

GENESIS – A BOOK IN WHICH JESUS AND THE APOSTLES BELIEVED AN INSPIRED RECORD?

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinrssyoutubevimeotumblrinstagramFacebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinrssyoutubevimeotumblrinstagram

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” (2 Tim.3v16).  This is one of our most fundamental beliefs, but we live in a world where the inspiration of the Scriptures is either denied or regarded as irrelevant.  A recent newspaper article posed the following question: Why is it that when a film is made which is critical of Mohammed there is outrage in the Muslim world – but when a fragment of papyrus is alleged to teach that Jesus was married no one in Christendom seems to be concerned?[1]  The answer, given by the author of the article, was that Muslims regard the Koran and its writer as inspired, whereas ‘Christians’ no longer believe the Bible to be the inspired word of God.  In view of such prevailing attitudes in the world around us, this article asks the question: “How did Jesus and his apostles regard the Old Testament Scriptures – particularly the book of Genesis?”

 

THE ACCOUNT OF THE CREATION

The first point to notice about the way that Jesus and his apostles quote Genesis is that there is a disproportionate emphasis on the early chapters.  Out of 110 quotations / allusions in the New Testament to Genesis almost a third refer to the first three chapters of Genesis, but only 2 of them (Rev.5v5 & 7v14) link to the last three chapters.  Almost two thirds of the quotations / allusions are to the first eleven chapters of Genesis!  It is as if God is going out of His way to confirm the truth of those parts of his Word which have been the most derided by modern man!

The entire work of the creation described in Genesis 1 is referred to at least eight times in the New Testament – e.g. “…the living God, which made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all things that are therein” (Acts 14v15); “…the angel…sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein” (Rev.10v5-6).  The everlasting gospel, which will be preached at the beginning of the Millennium, begins with an endorsement of creation: “Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters” (Rev.14v7) [2].  While the New Testament does not specifically endorse the creation as having taken place in six days, it does quote Gen.2v2 “For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works” (Heb.4v4).  These very precise references to the work of creation leave absolutely no room at all for the concept of “Theistic Evolution” – that God in some way started things off and then left the various diverse life forms to ‘develop / evolve’ over a very long period of time.  Everything in the heavens, the earth and the sea were specifically “made” by God – who then rested on the seventh day.

 

THE PRINCIPLE CHARACTERS IN THE BOOK OF GENESIS

Again, it is a significant fact that Jesus and the apostles speak / write about almost every important character mentioned in the Genesis record:  Adam (9 times), Eve, the serpent, Cain, Abel (4 times), Seth, Enoch, Methuselah, Noah (8 times), Shem, Terah, Abraham (74 times), Sarah, Isaac (20 times), Jacob (27 times), Judah, Tamar, Pharez & Joseph are all spoken of and many of the incidents which occurred in their lives are referred to.  It is clear that Jesus and his apostles accepted the Genesis record as a factual, literal, historical account of real events in the lives of real people.

 

THE GARDEN OF EDEN

Jesus, in Mt.19v4 & Mk.10v6 specifically quotes Gen.1v27 concerning the creation of male and female by God, including in his quotation the word “beginning” from Gen.1v1, thus showing that, to him, “the beginning” encompassed all the work of the six days as described in Gen.1, culminating in the creation of the first man and the first woman.  The man was created from the earth (1 Cor.15v47), and made a living soul (1 Cor.15v45).  He was created before the woman (1 Tim.2v13-14), the woman was created from him (1 Cor.11v8) and for him (1 Cor.11v9).  Also, God instructed them concerning their relationship (Mt.19v5, Mk.10v7-8, 1 Cor.6v16 & Eph.5v31).  Rev.2v7 speaks of “the tree of life which is in the midst of the paradise of God” – a clear allusion to the Garden of Eden as a type of conditions in the kingdom.  The serpent, who was subtil, beguiled Eve (2 Cor.11v3) and, as a result of Adam’s sin, death came into the world (Rom.5v12-21 & 1 Cor.15v21-22).

 

THE TIME BEFORE ABRAHAM

There are seven references in the New Testament to the events recorded in Genesis 4[3].  The genealogies of Jesus in Mt.1 & Lk.3 confirm the genealogical records in Gen.5, Gen.10 and the details of the family of the patriarchs down to Judah, Tamar & Pharez.

The building of the ark by Noah (and the purpose of it) are confirmed in Heb.11v7, the worldliness of his times in Lk.17v26-27, Noah’s entering into the ark in Mt.24v38, the salvation of eight in the ark in 1 Pet.3v20 and the flood in 2 Pet.3v5-6.

 

THE PATRIARCHS AND THE PROMISES

The apostle Paul in Gal.3v8 not only confirms the giving to Abram of the first promise (Gen.12v1-3) but adds the information that Abram had these promises as a written scripture in his own lifetime!  Similarly Paul in Rom.4v22-23 and James in Jas.2v23 confirm that Abram also had Gen.15v6 as a written scripture – and fulfilled it when he offered Isaac!  The priesthood of Melchizedek and his encounter with Abraham are extensively confirmed in Hebrews 5 to 7.  God’s covenant of circumcision was spoken of by Jesus (Jn.7v22) and alluded to by Paul in Phil.3v5.  There are ten references in the New Testament to Sodom, Lot, his wife and the fiery destruction of the cities of the plain[4].

Stephen in Acts 7 not only endorses the history of the patriarchs from Abraham to Joseph but adds (by the Spirit) a number of details that are not found in the Genesis record.  Similarly, the apostle in writing of the faithful in Hebrews 11 confirms many of the details of the historical account in Genesis.

 

THE PURPOSE OF THE QUOTATIONS

These quotations and allusions in the New Testament are not just passing & incidental references, they are used by Jesus and his apostles as the basis of and the authority for fundamental teachings.  Thus in the passages referred to above, the work of creation is cited to demonstrate that there is only one true and living God and all men should obey him.  The characters in the book of Genesis are set before us in the New Testament as examples of faith and works which were pleasing to God – or as warnings against evil behaviour which we should avoid – e.g. Esau in Heb.12v16-17.  The doctrines of sin & death, the atonement, faith towards God, baptism, the imputation of righteousness, the relationship between the male and the female, resurrection, judgment, the future blessings of the kingdom – all of these are expounded in the New Testament on the basis of principles which were taught, events which happened and the lives of people who existed in the time period covered by the book of Genesis.  Take Genesis away, or cast doubt upon its literal accuracy and the facts of its history and much of the teaching of Jesus and his apostles ceases to have any real meaning.  Uphold Genesis as the inspired word of the living creator God and the rest of the Bible coheres together upon its sure foundation.

Imagine a 24 hour clock, that is, one that takes a whole day for the hour hand to make one rotation. We will use the time scale of 24 hours, or one day, to represent the alleged time from the big bang to today. The advantage of this scale is that the event of the Big Bang would have happened when the hands were at 00.00 and here we are with the hands back at 00.00 some 13,798,000,000 years later! So, on this scale, when were Homo sapiens – you and me – first supposed to appear? That event allegedly took place 200,000 years ago (y.a.) – on this time scale, a mere 1.3 seconds ago. As for 6,000 years ago it would be 0.04 seconds before midnight. The chart shows other alleged evolutionary

That event allegedly took place 200,000 years ago (y.a.) – on this time scale, a mere 1.3 seconds ago. As for 6,000 years ago it would be 0.04 seconds before midnight. The chart shows other alleged evolutionary land-marks on the same scale. [Chart to be done]

Here’s another way of looking at it. In the UK we think of extreme distances as being between Land’s End and John O’Groats –from the bottom to the top of the UK. At John O’Groats there is a signpost showing the distance to Land’s End – 874 miles or 1,406km. The arm of the signpost is about 0.6m/2ft long. If we made the length of that signpost represent 6,000 years, then the length of a signpost arm to represent when Homo Sapiens alledged put in an appearance would be require a signpost arm just over 7ft/2.2m long. However, the length of the signpost arm to represent when the Big Bang is supposed to have taken place would need to be 1,400km long, stretching all the way to Land’s End!

Part 7: CREATION – A CLOSER LOOK AT GENESIS – The role of faith. – Don Pearce

Whether we like it or not it takes faith to believe that God brought the world into being some 6,000 years ago. JOHN OGROATSWe have not witnessed that divine display of power which formed and shaped the earth and brought forth life. Yes it demands faith. BUT we see the evidence for a Master craftsman, a Divine planner, where-ever we turn in the world of nature. We also see proof of the existence of God though the outworking of His prophetic word. So it is not a blind faith, but a reasoned faith. Consider now the faith of the evolutionist – not that he would use that term because of its religious connotations, but it is the correct term to use. To believe in mind-numbing stretches of time with random changes, ending up with our ordered world, with its Laws of mathematics, physics, and chemistry is a real leap of faith, especially to an enquiring mind that discovers the paucity of the evidence that is trumpeted to support these ideas. As Duane Gish has been quoted as saying, “Isn’t it unbelievable what the unbeliever has to believe in order to be an unbeliever! It’s simply unbelievable!”

Once again we are warned from God’s Word that men would prefer to believe a lie rather than the Truth.

And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 2 Thess 2:10-12

So when presented with the latest “evidence” for the long ages of the earth, remember that people do believe lies with whole-hearted conviction, but that does not make them true. When we have to choose between God’s Word and man’s word, we have good reason to trust the former and reject the latter.
