Jesus is both God and man. /-/-/ He is God, who came to earth to live with us, as one of us, in the form of His only begotten Son, (in a terrestrial body) as a flesh and blood man, for a short while. /-/-/ Only someone who is both God and man could do what Christ did, and could affect what He did. When He shed His precious sin-free blood on that cross at Calvary to cover mankind's sins. /-/-/ If He was not man. He could not have died on the cross, for the sins of humanity. /-/-/ If He was not God, it wouldn't have mattered that He did; But, He did sacrifice His (human, terrestrial) life, shedding His sin free blood and HE IS BOTH GOD and man! AND ROSE AGAIN FROM THE DEAD /-/-/ DEFEATING DEATH /-/-/ Jesus told us that there will be no excuses when He returns. /-/-/ Why? /-/-/ Because he has told you everything that will happen in His Word, (your Bible). It is written there and given in many different witnesses. /-/-/ If you have refused to study His Word, you have chosen to reject Him. /-/-/ It simply doesn't matter what your preacher says; But, what matters is what Christ said, as put down in "His Word" (not only the words He spoke as a human); But as He spoke, through the many prophets and recorded in your WHOLE Bible. -/-/- Does the preacher in the church you attend teach the WHOLE Bible book by book, chapter by chapter, and verse by verse? Rightly dividing the "Word of Truth"? If not, WHY do you continue to attend and support that church? (You are not learning what Christ taught) -/-/- Have you read His Word (your Bible) with understanding? Pray that He gives you eyes to see and ears to hear and correctly divide the word of truth. II Timothy 2:15 "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." /-/-/ Jesus is indeed God the Son, (The second Individual Personality of the Triune God) who came from Heaven, sent by God the Father, (The first Individual Personality of the Triune God) to identify with our suffering and sacrifice His human life, shedding His perfect SIN FREE BLOOD as a covering for the sins of mankind (yours and mine, if only we will believe in Him, and invite Him into our heart). He preached that His Kingdom is not a human (flesh and blood) kingdom but the Kingdom of God Himself. After His death on the cross and His resurrection He returned to heaven (to live in His celestial body) sending His Holy Spirit (The third Individual Personality of the Triune God) to guide and comfort we Christians who believe on Him, have repented of our sins, and have invited Him into our heart. /-/-/ Jesus preached not religion but a personal relationship that God desires to have with His originally created children. /-/-/ But please remember, Jesus told us that Satan will come to earth (at the sixth trump) five months prior to His own return claiming he (Satan) is God so don't be fooled into worshiping him. /-/-/ If you are still in your flesh and blood body; That super-natural being, claiming to be God, isn't Christ Jesus!!! /-/-/ Paul told us that at Christ's actual return (at the seventh trump), WE Will All Be CHANGED INTO OUR SPIRITUAL (celestial) BODIES, IN AN INSTANT!, IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE. /-/-/ Wait for the real Christ Jesus to return!!! /-/-/ DO not have Christ return and find you have already been bowing down and worshiping Satan as your God!!! It doesn't matter how much good he does to convince you he is God; Remember Satan is the tree of the knowledge of BOTH GOOD and EVIL. /-/-/ Those of us who endure until the end will be saved!!! /-/-/ Mark13:13....; but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. /-/-/ read all of Mark chapter 13 /-/-/ WAIT FOR THE REAL CHRIST'S RETURN /-/-/ Don't let Christ return, to find YOU HAVE ALREADY SPIRITUALLY HOPPED IN BED WITH AND ARE WORSHIPING SATAN!!!

The Bible is the continual story of God's plan to send a Messiah to earth, to pay the price for sin and the fall of man.  It is through this individual man "eth-ha adham",  with the Heb. 'eth-'Ha'adam (with Art. and Particle "eth-ha" = "this same man Adam", translated man and called Adam, along with his help meet Eve, formed by God, as described in Genesis chapter 2. It is this man's and woman's uncontaminated bloodline (of Pure Pedigree) that Jesus Christ was to be born, and those in that family knew what it was all about, even though heathen, non-Adamic men did not. This individual man "eth-ha adham" is not the same person as the  creation of mankind (the races) "adham"  without the  Heb. 'adam (no Art) and Particle eth-ha" =mankind  as described in Genesis chapter 1 who we also, erroneously, in our mind's eye, think of as being, this same man, Adam.  
With the particle ('eth) in addition to the article the Hebrew is very emphatic, and means self, very, this same, this very,. See Genesis 2:7 (first occurrence), 8,15  See note in your Companion Bible.                        It is a shame "adham" was not translated mankind in chapter 1.



Let's take a fresh look at Genesis Chapters 1 & 2
By John Rhine

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
  This verse does not say how long ago this happened.
          It does say God created both heaven and earth in the beginning.
          Isaiah 45:18 says that he created earth perfect to be inhabited.

1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. "was" in verse two, is exactly the same Hebrew word translated "became" in Gen. 2:7 "and man 'became' a living soul".
See the NIV translation, they suggest "or became" in place of "was"I personally believe the Hebrew word should be translated (became) because of God's Divine Judgment.  If other then Divine Judgment when did Satan fall? He was already a fallen a angel, when he appeared, in the "Garden of Eden".

American Wisdom Series studies note:
#1. Our commentary is not God's Word. It is only our interpretation or understanding of "His Word" and even though we try our best to be accurate we may or may not be correct. #2. The King James translation, or any other translation, of the original Hebrew text has some words which were given different translations at different places probably because of the interpreters preconceived ideas of what they think God meant to say.

For example: According to the notes in the "Dake's Annotated Reference Bible" the Hebrew word hayah in the KJV is Trans. (became) 67 times, (becamest or came to pass) 505 times, (become) 66 times, and (come to pass) 131 times, but for some reason in Genesis 1:2 it is translated (was) just this 1 time! 
(the King James Bible, translator's preconceived idea of what God meant to say, is my guess)

That sure changes the way a person perceives the original creation of the earth, doesn't it?
 
Gen. 1:2 And the earth was (became) without form, ... Having said that, let us continue with our "study". This study contain knowledge, we believe, you must have to fully and accurately unlock and understand the Word of God.
 

May the Holy Spirit be your only guiding light. Sincerely, John Rhine

Satan was already fallen in the Garden of  Eden Read of Satan's fall as described in Ezekiel 28:12-19 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. Tyrus means "rock", the false rock, Satan. [13] Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, (Note: This is a description of the stones on a priest's breastplate, Satan was a priest!) the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. [14] Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Satan was one of the two archangels given charge to protect, i.e. cover, the throne of God. But he wanted to sit on the throne and be the one in charge, i.e. be like God. [15] Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. [16] By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. [17] Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. [18] Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee. [19] All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.

You can see evidence of it everywhere, in the geological layers of the earth's crust, in the fossils pressed between the rocks, in the bones of the dinosaurs, in the tilt of the earth's axis, etc., etc., etc.

2 Peter 3:5-7&13 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the Word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: [6] Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: Isn't this passage talking about the flood of Noah? No, it is not. The flood of Noah belongs to the next verse, the heaven and earth age which are NOW, the age of flesh man. Noah's flood occurred about 2348 B.C. and did not have any effect on heaven as this one did? [7] But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.  And there will yet be another heaven and earth age, the third and final one. [13] Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
Peter declares that there are three heaven and earth ages: 1) The world that then was, which perished, 2) the heaven and earth which is now, and 3) the new heaven and new earth age to come.

Paul was taken to this yet future third heaven in  2 Cor. 12:2 ...caught up to the third heaven. Yes, there are three heaven ages just as there are three earth ages.

Another American Wisdom Series studies note:
John was taken to the third heaven in Rev. 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

   
"first" used here is the same word translated "former" in verse 4.  I believe it should also be translated "former" here in verse 1 also.

So the heaven and earth that pass away in this verse is the one prior to the "new" one which comes into existence "after" the lake of fire, i.e. the present earth age that we are in now, the 2nd earth age. We know from 2 Pet. 3 that there are three heaven and earth ages. It is the same earth but three different "ages" because the earth itself "abideth forever" (Eccles. 1:4). The "world that then was" (Gen 1:2), prior to the foundation of this earth age, was totally destroyed. It perished at the overthrow of Satan. This one will perish at his destruction!

I believe that at the time of Satan's rebellion God chose to destroy the "earth age that then was" and create a new heaven and a new earth, which are now, just as Peter explained. The Creator shook this old planet (or perhaps smote it with a meteor) and knocked it off of its true axis and out of its true orbit. That is why there's a magnetic declination where magnetic north and true north are as much as 80 km apart. And since the earth now "wobbles" it produces the "jet stream" which determines patterns of weather and storms. In the "world that then was" the entire earth was as a tropical garden. That is evidenced by the  discovery of Mastodons in the arctic regions, frozen solid in their tracks, with buttercups still in their mouths. That global destruction, that "tohu va bohu" of Gen. 1:2, wiped out all living things, and destroyed to utter ruin all the cities and habitable places of that earth age.  It is the age to which all "Fossils" and "Remains" belong. The geological evidence of a worldwide catastrophe are everywhere, and then some. Listen to our Father describe the destruction Himself through Jeremiah the prophet.

Jeremiah 4:22-27
For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge.  [23] I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light. Here it is, the same "without form, and void", "tohu va bohu".  And even the heavens had no light, which is why he later commanded "let there be light". There was light in the days of Noah, but not at this destruction. [24] I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly. [25] I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled. This couldn't possibly be the flood of Noah, for there were at least 8 people alive then. This says there was NO MAN and NO BIRDS. [26] I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, and by his fierce anger. That's right! There were cities in the world that then was, and they certainly became "lost". And you and I and all of God's children were there in that "world that then was". Do you remember the mysteries that Paul taught, how in Ephesians 1:4 he tells us that God's elect were chosen before the "katabole", the overthrow of Satan, before the foundation of this earth age?
I believe that the reason scientists find no evidence of man being present during the first earth age is because we were here, not in flesh and blood (terrestrial/animal/flesh&blood) bodies, but rather in our spiritual (celestial/heavenly) bodies.
So, what have we learned so far in the study?
We began in Gen. 1:1 with the creation, in the beginning, of a beautiful, inhabitable earth, and we end verse 2 with a dark and desolated world, destroyed by God's fierce anger to a state of tohu va bohu.

And then, out of the total darkness now covering the earth:

Genesis 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. Genesis 1:4 And God saw the light,
                 that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. [5] And God called the light
                 Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
[6] And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. [7] And 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. [8] And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
[9] And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. [10] And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. [11] And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. [12] 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. [13] And the evening and the morning were the third day.
[14] And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: [15] And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. [16] And 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. [17] And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, [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. [19] And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

[20] And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. [21] And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. [22] And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. [23] And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

[24] And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. [25] And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good. [26] And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth [27] So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. [28] And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. [29] And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. [30] And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. [31] And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Some observations:

Did you notice how each new day of this creation starts "And God said". [Verses 3, 6, 9, 14, 20, and 24, but not verses 1 or 2]

One of the preliminary requirements for understanding the Bible is that we learn to read what is written, as it is written, and not assume that it aligns or conforms with "tradition", i.e. what we think it says. Did you catch the word "replenish" when you read verse 28? I know I missed it for many years and my mind read "plenish". To replenish the earth is to populate it once again, for it had been populated in the world that was. Now that too makes sense!

And so God said, let "us" make mankind in "our" image. The words "us" and "our" refer back to Elohim, which is to say God and the host of heaven, or God and the angels. It does not say that man just looks like God, does it?  Keep that in mind as we continue.

Remember in the "world that then was", that Satan rebelled and drew one third of God's children away from Him (Rev 12). God sentenced Satan to death at that time, but rather than sentence everyone else, He destroyed that earth age and instituted the plan of salvation, for this earth age. He did not destroy His children.

Now I ask, where did we come from? Where were we before we entered our mother's womb? I believe we came from God because we were with God!  And when our flesh body dies, it gets buried six feet underground, or cremated (ashes to ashes or dust to dust, it doesn't matter, we're done with it) and we "return" to Him. This is simple. Ecclesiastes tells us what happens when we die, when the silver cord is severed:

Eccles. 12:6-7
Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern.
In other words, when you die.
[7] Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.
And so we return from "whence we cometh".

How simple and easy many scriptures and passages would be to explain if those who taught weren't "willingly ignorant" of the "world that was" and the events that transpired there?  Knowing what we've just learned, could you now explain how it is that God named the prophet Jeremiah before he entered his mother's womb? Of course, he was with Him. God knew him. He says so.

Jeremiah 1:5
Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
Can you understand how our Father could say He hated Esau and loved Jacob, while they were still in their mother's belly (Rom 9:13)?  He knew how disrespectful Esau was from before.

Can you now understand what the apostle Paul means in Ephesians 1:4 when he says that God's elect were chosen before the foundation of this world, meaning the "katabole" or "overthrow"? I believe they stood against Satan and earned the right to have God interfere in their lives and use them as He will in this earth age. Our Father knows all of His children, the good and the rebellious.

So let's go back just before God creates mankind. To whom is He speaking?  He says, "Let us make man in our image", "after our likeness", to look just like us.

Now think hard. Do you suppose that you look like yourself? As you did before you were born in the flesh? I'll bet you do!

On the sixth day God created mankind, the different races, the ethnos. And He created them male and female! The Hebrew word translated "man" is "adham". In the manuscripts it is not preceded by the definite article 'eth and so it does not refer to a specific person, i.e. the word adam means human being or mankind, and no gender is implied. This is an extremely important point to understand in order that you may fully comprehend the events in the next few chapters.

And so God said, let "us" make "mankind" in "our" image. The words "us" and "our" refer back to Elohim, which is to say God and the host of heaven, or God and the angels/us. It does not say that man just looks like God, does it?  Keep that in mind as we continue.

Was this before "eth-ha adham" and his wife Eve were formed? Yes it was! This was the sixth day. I believe the man we call Adam was formed on a latter day and we haven't gotten to that day yet.  That would the answer to a question, "When Cain was sent forth into the land of Nod, it says he took a wife. Where in the world did she come from?"  She was of the sixth day creation.

Notice also, that God gave the sixth day man dominion over the fish of the sea, the fowl of the air,  and the entire wild kingdom. And so they became hunters and fishers. However, conspicuously absent from this account is any mention of farming and/or tilling the ground. Why?

Next we will see God resting for a day (How long would that be anyway?). In so far as the sun and moon are not placed until the fourth day of creation (verse 16), it would hardly seem that the current status of a day would apply, at least to days 1-3, would it? Peter told us in his second book not to be ignorant about this, especially about this one thing, because God does not reckon time as we do. 2 Peter 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. God's days are not the same as man's. Are the days of creation in Genesis God's, or are they man's?  Well, Who is present and who isn't?   Also, keep in mind that the Lord's Day, that Sabbath of rest, is that period of time we call the Millennium, which means 1000 years. So the last "day" of this earth age will be 1000 years. There is nothing new under the sun.

Then on a later day, following the seventh day, which I'll call the eighth day, only because it came latter than the seventh day, we shall meet the great, great, great..... grandparents of Jesus Christ.

The sixth day, when flesh man was brought into being, finally came to an end. And so it is now, one "week" later, that this sixth day of man's reign (6000 years), after which flesh man will be no longer, is about to come to an end. We approach the eve of the seventh day, the Lord's Day, which is the Millennium.

Now back to Genesis.

Genesis 2:1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
The heavens and the earth "which are now" (2 Pet. 3:7) were finished, and all the "host" of them. Look up the word "host" in your Strong's concordance.  The Hebrew word is tsaba and it means a "mass of people, in waiting", i.e. the newly created heavens and earth are finished and the sons of God await their turn to "pass through this earth age", in a flesh body, born of woman.

What a joyous occasion that must have been. We read in the Book of Job how the sons of God shouted for joy at our Father's handiwork.

Job 38:1
Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said, [2] Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge? [3] Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me. [4] Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding. Job doesn't remember after being born innocent in the flesh. [without remembrance of his previous spiritual existence] [5] Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it? [6] Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof; [7] When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
I believe we all were spirit beings created before the foundation of the world.

Genesis 2:2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
[3] And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made. I believe mankind (all the different races of people who were created on the sixth day) went forth and replenishing the earth during this seventh day, this millennium of rest. [4] These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,

We now come to the eighth day, the seventh having passed away.

You will find that in just about every commentary of the Bible that the creation which follows is presented as a parenthetical insertion, a more detailed account of the creation of man which we read of in chapter 1 beginning in verse 26. I believe this is a false assumption and leads to great difficulty in explaining how it is that in chapter one the animals are created first, then man, while here in chapter two man is formed first and then the animals. Which is it?

I believe there are two separate happenings We begin to "see" in the next verse.

[5] And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
Do you recall that there was no mention in chapter one, whatsoever, of a farmer, a man to till the ground and plant seeds? The sixth day man was given dominion over the fowl of the air and the fish of the sea. There were only hunters and fishers. And so here on the eighth day, following God's day of rest (Sabbath), God says that He has "no man to till the ground".
[6] But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground. [7] And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
There are several important things to notice in this verse:

First, the Hebrew word for "formed" is yatsar, meaning to "mould" or "form" as a potter. It is not the same word as "created" in Gen. 1:26, which is bara.

Secondly (and this is crucial to our understanding), the word "man" used here, in the original manuscripts, is " 'eth-ha adham ", with the article and particle, and means "this same man Adam".  It means a specific man, not mankind in general. The Companion Bible documents this. (it is what the Massorah shows). The word "man" used in chapter one is' 'adham " without the article and particle, and means mankind in general. (not a specific person)

Lastly, we see God "breathed" into Adam's nostrils the "breath of life". The word translated "breathed" is naphach, which means to "inflate", as in He inflated Adam's lungs. But the word translated "breath" is neshamah, which means "divine inspiration", "intellect", "soul" or "spirit".

So God not only inflated Adam's lungs with "air", but also placed in him his "breath of life body", i.e. his spiritual body. The apostle Paul makes it very clear in 1 Cor. 15 that we have both a flesh body and a spiritual body, and so did Adam when God was finished forming him.

[8] And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
God did not tell this "man" to go forth and replenish the earth. Instead, He prepared a special garden and in it placed this "same man Adam", whom He had formed.
[9] And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. [10] And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads. [11] The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;  [12] And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.  [13] And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia. [14] And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates. [15] And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
Our Father now has a man to till the ground, an husbandman, a gardener. His name is Adam and he is given charge to dress and maintain Eden.
[16] And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: [17] 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.
But, there is a "tree" in the midst of the garden, which has the knowledge of good and evil, that Adam better stay away from, or it will cost him his life. As you may already know, he falls short and disobeys God, and dies at age 930, just 70 years short of one day.

We are on the eighth day. God has just formed (not created as in chapter one) a special man to "till the ground" and has placed him in the garden of Eden to dress it and keep it. Why this special creation? Because it would be through this man," 'eth ha adham " (Adam), and his soon to be formed wife, Eve, that the Messiah, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, would be born. It was God's plan from the beginning.

And so, we better be prepared to expect that Satan will try his best to thwart this plan of God and to destroy this woman and her offspring! If we keep this objective (to destroy the seed line of Christ) in mind throughout the Old Testament, as we read it, we will better understand the events that took place, like when king Abimelech took Sarah, after Abraham told him that she was his sister, and when Judah took "foreign" wives, and produced "non-qualified" offspring, the influx of Satan's angels in chapter six and again after the Noah's flood, the reason God told the Israelites they must kill everyone in Palestine (men, women and children),  etc.

Let's now look in on Adam and see how he is doing.

Genesis 2:18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. This man Adam needed a women who was also not from among the sixth day creation. I believe the spirits placed in this Adam and Eve were spirits of beings who had been proven faithful to God in the first earth age, because it is from this man's and women's descendants, of pure pedigree, that Christ would be born in the flesh. [19] And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.
These are the domestic animals, or better said, the "farm animals" that were created to compliment the "man to till the ground" whom our Father had just formed.

You will find, if you care to check it out, that in chapter 1 verse 24, God brought forth the beasts of the "earth", erets in Hebrew, meaning the "earth at large" or "wilderness", i.e. the wild animals. But here in chapter 2 verse 19 he formed every beast of the "field", sadeh in Hebrew, meaning "country" or "field", i.e. field animals or farm animals. Notice that these animals were formed AFTER the man was created whereas in chapter one the wild animals were created BEFORE mankind. These were separate creations.

[20] And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. [21] And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; [22] And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. [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. [24] Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. [25] And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
I believe that we existed with God as created spirit beings before the foundation of the world.  Are we the angels referred to in the Bible? Revelations 22:8-9 suggests that we are. John has just return to the Isle of Patmos and the realization of what has just happened suddenly overcomes him.
Rev. 22:8 And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things. We can only imagine the overwhelming impact it must have had on John when the reality of being taken to heaven, to the very throne of God, and witnessing the awesome events described in this book, finally "hit home". And so he fell down to worship before the feet of the angel. That's a no no!  "Welcome back to the flesh and humanity", John!  [9] Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.    Did you hear what the angel just said?   "...for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets,..."  He's our brother!
This is a very revealing verse. The angel makes it perfectly clear that he is "one of us" who has lived in the flesh, from among our brethren the prophets. He is a fellowservant and he lets us know that he is living testimony to keeping the sayings of this book, to being a "doer" of what Christ just said in verse 7, "...blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book."  However, the main point being emphasized by the angel is this: We are never to worship angels!  And now that you know who they are.  The angel is saying "We are never to worship each other", whether we are in our flesh bodies or whether we are in our spiritual bodies, i.e. angels. Worship only God.

Another observetion to think about - The fact that the angels (sons of God) left their first estate implys that they were to, at some time, go to a second estate. Jude 1:6.  If they are not us prior to being born in the flesh, then what is the second estate that they should have waited for?  Genesis 6:1-4, & 1 Corinthians 11:10. -  Also what does John 3:13 mean?

John 3:13And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.

"The Salvation Plan of God"

Volumes and volumes of books have been written in an attempt to answer these questions by philosophers, theologians, scientists, and theorists who suppose they are philosophers, theologians, or scientists. Of course no matter how brilliant man thinks he is, these are all questions that cannot be answered using the scientific method, because the answers lie beyond the veil which separates the flesh dimension from the spiritual dimension. And flesh man, without the help of God, cannot step into that spiritual dimension and retrieve the answers. So just as man will never be able to place "love" or an "attitude" under a microscope and see either one, he cannot answer the spiritual questions above by any physical means available to him "under the sun", apart from God, though he keeps on trying.

That means if one is inclined to mentally and spiritually stay on this side of the veil and deny even the possibility of a creator who lies beyond the boundary of the physical realm, then he or she will never reach an understanding of any of the opening four questions.

Furthermore, those predisposed to that position will remain void of wisdom and common sense and go through life either admitting they are agnostics, meaning they are "ag - knowledge", i.e. "know nothings", or they will be so ignorant as to believe without any credible evidence that they are the end result of organic slime which after billions and billions of years spontaneously and miraculously aligned enough atoms at the same time in order to form enough molecules at the same time in order to form enough amino acids at the same time in order to form enough proteins at the same time in order to form a single cell of life. This astronomically improbable event must then occur enough times for one of the cells to survive and figure out how to reproduce itself and repeat that process until it can figure out what it would like to evolve into. From this point on the story becomes ridiculous.

You see, if evolution were true, then it would be an ongoing process, right? Therefore we should be able to see creatures and animals between stages of development. So where is there an almost man alive today? Where is there a fish whose fins are almost legs, or legs that are almost wings? Show me an almost Rose!

Where is there an almost anything? There is none! And there never was, i.e. there are no intermediary creatures to be found in the fossil records either. It is pretty difficult to claim you have a chain when ALL the links are missing.

Now suppose one has at least enough wits about him to recognize that order and complexity do not happen accidentally and that a creator is required in order to have a creation and a law giver is required in order to have a law.

Note: You can easily test a person's ability to acknowledge a creator by showing them a horse and car side by side. Try explaining that the car is the result of nuts and bolts and wires and glass and rubber and leather (forget where they all came from) all spontaneously and miraculously aligning themselves in a big bin (given enough time). Of course, they won't believe your explanation. They will readily admit that a car requires a car manufacturer and that it is astronomically improbable (make them say the word "impossible" if you can) for such a thing to occur. Now try the same explanation of the horse, which is a much more complex machine than the car. Believe it or not, many will say that the horse does not require a horse manufacture, just billions and billions of years of happenstance. Go figure!

But even if a person believes in a Creator, he or she is not "out of the woods" yet in being able to answer our four questions, anymore than just knowing the car was manufactured tells you where or when or how it was made. For that you must inquire of the correct manufacturer. However, since this is a Bible Study we will presuppose that you believe in a Creator, and not just any Creator, but the Creator God of the Bible which claims to be His Word, the information directly from the correct manufacturer. Now the problem is, can you read and understand the manual?

You may be asking yourself by now, "What's the purpose of this lengthy introduction?" It is simply to prepare your mind to think and understand that Jesus Christ informed you and me that the number one SIGN of this final generation is the GREAT probability that you and I have been deceived by Christian ministers and preachers.

So before we begin with our study of the Plan of God from His Word and His works, which will conclusively answer the four questions, we must pause and consider for a moment that we might be deceived. Ask the question, "If a person is deceived, would he (or she) know it?" The answer is NO HE WOULD NOT! No one who is deceived knows or believes he is deceived, for that is the very definition of deception. Here's the word "deceive" as defined in Webster's Dictionary:

deceive; "to cause to accept as true or valid what is false or invalid".

Have you ever heard anyone say, "Hi John! Guess what? I'm deceived." What would you say in response, "How do you know?" And he or she answers, "Because what I believe to be true is actually false." You say, "Well, if you know it's false then you can't believe it is true, can you? So you are not deceived."

The point is, you cannot KNOW that you are deceived. The information and knowledge that you possess may indeed be false, but you do not know it to be false, nor believe it to be so. BUT, based on what Jesus told His disciples on the mount of Olives, you can (and should) assume that you are or might be deceived

Here are the first warning words of Jesus Christ concerning our day:
Matthew 24:3 And as He sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? [4] And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. [5] For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
Do you believe Jesus Christ? He said many shall come in "His name"! His name is Jesus Christ and they come representing Him, as His ministers, saying, "Yep, Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah", and people then believe the rest of what they say as if their authority comes from God.

Just how wide spread is this deception? Well, when Satan shows up as the false messiah (Rev. 12:7-9) the whole world will believe he is Jesus, which in reality means they must already be mentally and spiritually prepared to accept him, i.e. they are already deceived. In fact, if a person is still trying to figure out what the "Mark of the Beast" is, they already have it and don't know it. (We will learn more about that "mark" later on and how it relates to God's Plan.)
Rev. 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Note: Verse 9 above says, "...and Satan which deceiveth the whole world:..."It does not say he will deceive the whole world"
This deception started long ago with Satan spiritually leading  "our Christian churches and their ministers down a desolate road"!
Where they no longer teach the Bible 
book by book, chapter by chapter, and verse by verse; Correctly dividing the "Word of Truth", but now have their pulpits manned by "ONE VERSE REVS."
Deceived? YES,
Most all of Christianity has already been deceived!

Most all of our so-called Christian churches , under Satan's leadership, through his Kenite grand-children, have become Social Clubs with a very little true CHRISTIANITY mixed in!

So in view of these scriptures, "What is the probability that you are deceived*?" You should consider the chance that you are NOT deceived in this final generation to be about the same as your chance of winning the million dollar lottery today. The odds are not good in your favor. Would you stake your eternal salvation on your chance of winning the lottery today? Then "take heed" as Jesus warned!

Note: The phrase "the whole world" is a generalization and means "the majority of the whole", which leaves room for some exception. It is written that God's very elect, a minority of people indeed, will not be deceived even for a moment.

Finally, there are two more important aspects of deception to be considered. The first is that even if one is able to educate people to see and understand what deception is, most really don't think it applies individually to them and they still believe that what they believe is true! It is a little like telling people they are going to die, especially younger people. They intellectually know that is true, but individually they don't think or sense that it applies to them, at least not for today. The same holds true when tomorrow becomes today!

The final aspect to consider about deception is that if a person has believed something erroneous for a long time, perhaps a lifetime, when he hears something that contradicts that belief, though it may be the "gospel truth" as they say, he usually dismisses it as being odd or cultist or whacko, even when given irrefutable documentation along with it. The higher critics and the main stream media will aid him in his rejection of truth as being controversial. Then too, it takes a man or woman of courage to seek the truth and even greater courage to accept that truth, especially if it is not the majority or even a popular view. After all, who wants to be alone and take a stand like Noah or Elijah or David or Daniel or Jesus Christ?

Let's now begin to think and study about the Plan of God.

Consider the following foundation scripture:

Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
God made His creation the way He made it with great purpose, so that we can understand the INVISIBLE things from the CREATION of the world, even His power and Godhead, even His marvelous Plan and the answer to our four questions. If you understand the depth of this verse, Romans 1:20, you then know that we can actually SEE in "Physical type" that which is Spiritual, beyond the veil. The physical type then becomes a second witness that documents the Word of God and vice versa.

There is a REASON WHY a human being begins his or her flesh experience from an act of love whereby an egg is begotten by a seed, which forms an embryo that attaches to the mother's womb, and is then incubated for 40 weeks in a water world of its own, until it is born into the world as a newborn baby, completely helpless and unable to care for itself, totally dependent on its mother and father to care for it and sustain its life.

There is a REASON WHY human beings grow to become male or female and a reason why the two are designed to become one, whereby a family is created with a Father and a Mother and children. God could have made things any way He so chose, but He made them for our understanding as Rom. 1:20 declares so that the Word of God and the Creation of God harmonize together.

So let's now consider another question. Suppose you were all alone in the world. I mean look at the advantages; there wouldn't be any people problems, there wouldn't be any crime, there wouldn't be any bills to pay or bosses to answer to, and you would be rich because you could claim everything as your own. Would you be happy and content? But would you be happy for very long? You know you wouldn't be!

You know it would be much more wonderful and pleasurable to have someone to love and to share everything with and better yet, to have someone who loved you too! Well, our Father is no different.  In the eternity past, as we will document,  He was all alone and He desired a Family to share everything with and to love and who would love Him in return!

Most people suppose that the Plan of God starts with Genesis 1:1, but it does not! The creation of the heavens and the earth start there (for they had a beginning), but the Family Plan itself began before Gen. 1:1 happened, yes, before the beginning, in what we call the eternity past. We find it recorded in the book of wisdom, in the Proverbs of Wisdom, chapter 8. Before there ever was an earth our Father existed and wisdom was with Him. We read concerning wisdom:

Proverbs 8:22 The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.
We will see in this chapter and in 2 Pet. 3 that Gen. 1:1 were His works of old. This is before that time.
[23] I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.
Again for emphasis, this is before the earth came into being.
[24] When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water. [25] Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth: [26] While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world. [27] When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth: When He did create the heavens and the earth, wisdom remained with Him. [28] When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep: [29] When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth: [30] Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him; [31] Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.
Though wisdom was with God from the eternity past, His hearts desire (his delight) was to have sons, i.e. a family. So He created the souls of all His children for His pleasure, the pleasure of companionship and love. That is WHY you were created! (We will show later that He gave us free will and explain what that is.)
Rev. 4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
NOW we come to the beginning and we will see that God prepares a magnificent and beautiful, perfect HOME for His family. He will call it "Earth" and His children will shout for joy! We learned that God's plan began even before Genesis 1:1, which was His creation of the heaven and the earth. It began in the eternity past with our Father's desire to have a happy, loving family, with whom He could share all of eternity future and all of His creation, which He has made especially for them!

Perhaps we should pause and look ahead to the future where we find written in Rev. 21 that when the salvation plan of the Plan of God is completed at the end of the Millennium, He shall come and dwell with His children/us and they/we shall inherit all things.
Rev. 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. [3] And I heard a great voice out of heaven 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.
Rev. 21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
We all look forward to that time which, incredible as it may seem, is now drawing nearer and nearer.

But we must now return to the time before the beginning, before Gen. 1:1, when God brought into being all of His many children, including you and me, who are "sons of God", even as we are called in the Bible. That's right, you were, and you are, a son (read child at this point if you like) of the living God, and you and I are literally "older than the hills".
Oh, you never heard of such a thing, you say! Now remember what we said in the opening of our study... you can either stick around and allow us to completely and thoroughly document this from His Word OR you can reject it because you never heard it before and because it sounds a little strange to you. It is your choice.

So once all souls, His children, were brought into being, our loving Father then proceeded to build for His family the most beautiful Home in all of the Universe and He called it Earth. (Those of you who have studied Ezekiel with us know that in chapter 16 of that book God eventually chose a favorite location of His own on earth where He will reside forever.)

Then, when our Father had finished building, i.e. creating the earth, His children were so thrilled and so excited that they literally shouted for joy! Yes, you were there and shouted too! 

Here's your documentation:

Job 38:1 Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said, [2] Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?
To give you some background here: Job has been listening for 36 chapters to his mainstream preacher buddies, Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite (pronounced "shoe-height", which I believe qualifies him as the shortest man in the Bible, heh, heh), and Zophar the Naamathite, give him really bad advice and counsel about God, who is not too happy about it! We find written a few chapters later in Job 42:7: "And it was so, that after the LORD had spoken these words unto Job, the LORD said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends: for ye have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job hath.

Unfortunately, todays preachers just as preachers in the past, often don't speak of God or His Word the things that are right! The point is, we now have the written Word of God and we are to listen to Him through that Word. If what man tells you is written therein, then hold fast to that which is good. If what man tells you, even this man, ever contradicts what is written therein, then pitch it. However, make sure you do your homework before you accept or reject it. Your own opinion doesn't count as far as God is concerned!

But be sure you are studying from a unaltered Bible! (Live Link to->Remember the Famine has Started)
[3] Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me.
When you answer to your Father, your preacher won't be there to answer for you. What will you say when He asks why you haven't read and studied His Word?
[4] Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.
If you don't have understanding, which comes from studying His Word, then don't answer because your chances of being right are pretty slim. And as we just read, when you give out unknowledgeable and incorrect information about Him, He becomes angry with you (which is not a good thing). So let's just wait and let our Father tell us the answer. That is how we acquire understanding.
[5] Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it? [6] Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;
Now that's a good question! How in the world did He hang this planet in the midst of space? What holds it there?
[7] When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
ALL of the sons of God, including you and me and Job, etc., shouted for joy when God created this beautiful earth. He said so! You just read it! And we loved it, else we wouldn't have shouted for joy! It must have been stunning to say the least, for we will see that it was quite different back then than it is now. Nevertheless, we have come to Genesis 1:1 where God first created the heaven and the earth for His children:
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Why did He create the earth?
Isaiah 45:18 For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, He created it not in vain, He formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.
He created the earth to BE INHABITED! By whom? By ALL of His sons, His family that He created which was you and me and Job and Moses and Sarah and Adam and David and Deborah and Paul and Judy and Eve and John, etc.

So the earth was very beautiful back then when the Behemoth of Job 40:15, the dinosaur, roamed the earth. There was a water canopy that enveloped the entire globe which made it a virtual greenhouse with lush vegetation from the Arctic to the Antarctic. That is why the Mastodons and Mammoths that have been discovered in the tundra and in Northeast Siberia, which were instantly  frozen at a time we are going to soon read about (the Bible tells us exactly what caused the extinction of dinosaurs and mammoths) had grass in their bellies and buttercups in their mouths. You can read about them on this Discovery Channel's website. 

Here is an excerpt: 

GREAT MAMMOTH DISCOVERIES

In Northeast Siberia, a villager showed a Cossack named Yaklovski a tusk he'd hacked from "one of those great hairy devils up on the under-cliff of the Beresovka River." The Cossack, in turn, told a local police official, who notified the Imperial Academy of Sciences. In September 1901, zoologist Otto F. Herz was sent to retrieve the mammoth carcass before it was devoured by wild animals. Herz and his crew spent nearly a month meticulously removing the giant's still largely intact body from the ice. Its stomach was found to contain more than 33 pounds of grass. The mammoth's remains were stuffed, with about one-third of the animal's body, including its tail, made up of its actual, preserved skin. The rest of the specimen in Leningrad's Zoological Museum is covered with restored skin. 
There is something else in Isa. 45:18 which is extremely important to our understanding of the Plan of God. Notice that it says "the LORD that created the heaven and the earth", so that we know we are talking about the same Creator and creation of Gen. 1:1, created it NOT IN VAIN!

We must now interrupt the story flow and do a short, simple, but scholarly word study because we MUST understand what this word "vain" means. It is the Hebrew word "tohuw" and here is its definition from Strong's Concordance*:

tohuw, to'-hoo, Hebrew 8414; from an unused root meaning to lie waste; a desolation (of surface), i.e. desert; figurative a worthless thing; adverbial in vain :- confusion, empty place, without form, nothing, (thing of) nought, vain, vanity, waste, wilderness.
In other words, Isaiah 45:18 declares that God DID NOT create the earth in the condition of "tohuw", a desolate wasteland, which is the condition in which we find the earth in Gen. 1:2, and it reads:
Genesis 1:2
And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
The two words translated "without form" in this verse come from a single Hebrew word which is exactly the same word "tohuw" we read of in Isa. 45:18 that was translated "vain". Here in Gen. 1:2 it SEEMS to say that God created the heavens and the earth (vs. 1) and it WAS "tohuw" when He made it, meaning it was a desolate wasteland without form. So which is it? Isaiah said specifically that He DID NOT make it that way.
It is truly amazing how just one word either mistranslated or translated poorly can have such a tremendous influence on the world of Christianity, and right from the beginning, the very second verse in the Bible. We will not allow poor scholarship to obscure the truth of His Word. Here is the definition of the word "was" in Gen. 1:2:
hayah, haw-yaw', Hebrew 1961; a primitive root [compare Hebrew 1933 (hava')]; to exist, i.e. be or become, come to pass (always emphatic, and not a mere copula or auxiliary) :- beacon, altogether, be (-come, accomplished, committed, like), break, cause, come (to pass), do, faint, fall, + follow, happen, have, last, pertain, quit (one-) self, require, use.
This is EXACTLY the same word translated BECAME in Genesis 2:7 "And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

God did not create the earth in a state of utter waste and desolation. It BECAME that way! See live link to->>>>pamphlet #1003 (If you have an NIV Bible it will note the word "was" in Gen 1:2 as "or became".) The question is "How" and "When" and "Why" did the earth become such a desolation?  We will read the "specific" answers to all three shortly. Don't miss them, because the fascinating answers to these questions lay the very foundation for understanding why we are now in flesh bodies that will someday perish! Wouldn't you like to know? You can!

* A Strong's Concordance is a book containing an index of all the words in the King James Bible and all the verses in which they are contained, with a numeric link to the dictionaries in the back of the concordance of the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek words and their definitions. It is really quite simple to use and if you don't understand Hebrew or Greek (which most Christians do not) then you should have one if you are serious about studying God's Word. With this valuable study tool you can "check out" the information contained in this study. You can obtain one at most any bookstore.

Caution to students of God's Word - Please remember two things when using our studies: #1. Our commentary is not God's Word. It is only our interpretation or understanding of "His Word" and even though we try our best to be accurate we may or may not be correct. #2. The King James translation, or any other translation, of the original Hebrew text has some words which were given different translations at different places probably because of the interpreters preconceived ideas of what they think God meant to say. For example: According to the notes in the "Dake's Annotated Reference Bible" the Hebrew word hayah in the KJV is Trans. (became) 67 times, (becamest or came to pass) 505 times, (become) 66 times, and (come to pass) 131 times, but for some reason in Genesis 1:2 it is translated (was)! That sure changes the way a person perceives the original creation of the earth, doesn't it?  Gen. 1:2 And the earth was (became) without form, ... 

Have you ever been to a museum and walked through a display of life size replicas of dinosaurs? What awesome creatures they must have been.  As you wonder and wander through the display you cannot help feel like you are in another world, a world age of long, long ago, when the earth was quite different. Then you realize they are all gone, extinct! What really happened to them?

Remember, we learned that God created all of His sons, including you and me, even before the creation of Gen. 1:1? Well, we are given a detailed account of the description and the activities of one of those sons. His name was Lucifer, which means "morning star", a title of great honor as we shall see. Remember also we read from Job 38:7 that at the creation of this beautiful earth, the "morning stars" formed the chorus as they sang together while all the rest of the sons of God cheered for great joy. Lucifer was among those morning stars who sang. (Job 38:7 "When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?") You can be sure there was great ceremony and rejoicing for we read of great heavenly ceremonies in the Book of Revelation and we all look forward to the Great Wedding and the ceremonial feast.

Let's read about this "morning star", Lucifer, in the Book of Ezekiel.

Ezekiel 28:12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.
Tyrus means "rock" with a small "r" and refers to Satan who we will see wanted to be like The Rock, (always with a large "R" when used in our 1611 King James Bible) who is Jesus Christ. But as it is written in Deuteronomy chapter 32, which is the Song of Moses referred to in Rev. 15 that the overcomers will be singing at the return of Christ, he is NOT our Rock: Deut. 32:31 "For their rock is not as our Rock..."

However, this "rock" was once a very honorable and esteemed individual by our Father and all of His children too! (Of course now we can put "rock" & "morning star" together and realize he is nothing more important to God's children than a "rock star". Ok, he's not even that important. I was just having a little fun.)

[13] Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God;
This verse documents that we are not talking about the literal human king of Tyre. This is all about Satan. This next part of the verse is very insightful if you have eyes to see and are familiar with God's Word.
[13 ... continued] every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.
First we see that Satan was created just like everyone else. But, we see that a "workmanship" was also prepared for him. What in the world is that?

Here's the definition of the Hebrew word "workmanship". See if you can figure it out.
mela'kah, mel-aw-kaw', Hebrew 4399; from the same as Hebrew 4397 (mal'ak); properly deputyship, i.e. ministry; generally employment (never servile) or work (abstract or concrete); also property (as the result of labor) :- business, + cattle, + industrious, occupation, (+ -pied), + officer, thing (made), use, (manner of) work ([-man], -manship).
Lucifer was given a very important DUTY or POSITION. Do you know what it was? It may surprise you! Notice in verse 13 that "every precious stone" adorned him. This simply means that Satan WORE the "Breastplate of a Priest of God", a very high position indeed! That's right, and verse 14 will show he was "anointed" to this position by our Father. You see, these stones listed in verse 13 are EXACTLY the same as the stones that the Levitical priests will wear. Let's read the description of the priest's breastplate so we know for sure. (You can compare stone for stone if you like.)
Exodus 28:17-21 And thou shalt set in it settings of stones, even four rows of stones: the first row shall be a sardius, a topaz, and a carbuncle: this shall be the first row. [18] And the second row shall be an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond. [19] And the third row a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst.
Note to the deeper scholar: This entire third row is missing from Ezekiel 28:13 in Hebrew, but it is supplied in the Septuagint.
[20] And the fourth row a beryl, and an onyx, and a jasper: they shall be set in gold in their inclosings.
So what do these stones represent?
[21] And the stones shall be with the names of the children of Israel, twelve, according to their names, like the engravings of a signet; every one with his name shall they be according to the twelve tribes.
So we now understand that this "morning star", Lucifer, was a high priest of God even over the children of God. Think about it! Let's return to Ezekiel 28 and read more about him.
Ezekiel 28:14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
God anointed Lucifer as a "protector of the mercy seat", which is where Christ sits (there are only two cherubs that cover the Ark of the Covenant), and set him high upon the holy mountain, which is the seat of authority of the kingdom of God, i.e. he also had a very high governmental position. There is no separation of "church" and "state" in the kingdom of God, for all men who execute duties are righteous men. So the civil and the religious in that sense are united which is why we read that Jesus returns as King of kings and Lord of lords. AND Satan walked up and down in the midst of Children of God, who are those "stones of fire" we just read of in the last verse, i.e. God's children. You see, our Father is a consuming fire (spiritually). That's why these stones are called stones (small "r') of fire (God) for they are His children. Your documentation is found in Hebrews 12:29 "For our God is a consuming fire."

So Satan really had it made at one time, didn't he? He had it ALL, as we say. Now read this next verse about him.

[15] Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.
Uh oh! Something has gone haywire! God created this son, Lucifer, "perfect", which if you take the time to look up this word in your Strong's Concordance you will find it means "without blemish", "undefiled", i.e. He created him not only to be beautiful, but also morally upright, and so at one time he did have integrity.

However, God ALSO gave all of His children FREE WILL, which we will discuss in more depth at a later time. So Lucifer, once a beautiful morning star, lost his brightness, his light, and now became Satan, the dark one, the evil one.

Here are the Hebrew words for "perfect" and "iniquity", respectively.

tamiym, taw-meem', Hebrew 8549; from Hebrew 8552 (tamam); entire (literal, figurative or moral); also (as noun) integrity, truth :- without blemish, complete, full, perfect, sincerely (-ity), sound, without spot, undefiled, upright (-ly), whole.

`evel, eh'-vel, Hebrew 5766; or avel, aw'-vel; and (feminine) avlah, av-law'; or owlah, o-law'; or olah, o-law'; from Hebrew 5765 (`aval); (moral) evil :- iniquity, perverseness, unjust (-ly), unrighteousness (-ly), wicked (-ness).

When he was created, Satan was tamiym but he became 'evel. Here's what caused him to become that way:
Ezekiel 28:16
By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence,...
The NIV reads: "Your great wealth filled you with internal turmoil and you sinned." Hey, he loved THINGS and MONEY! Well now there's a surprise! I've never seen a priest or minister or government official corrupted by money before, have you?
and thou hast sinned:...
This Hebrew word for "sinned" is "chata'" and it is extremely important to understand its meaning, for contained in this word is what Satan DID that was so EVIL.
chat*a', khaw-taw', Hebrew 2398; a primitive root; properly to miss; hence (figurative and general) to sin; by inference to forfeit, lack, expiate, repent, (causative) lead astray, condemn :- bear the blame, cleanse, commit [sin], by fault, harm he hath done, loss, miss, (make) offend (-er), offer for sin, purge, purify (self), make reconciliation, (cause, make) sin (-ful, -ness), trespass.
The proper meaning here is (CAUSATIVE) LEAD ASTRAY. "Causative" as defined by Webster is: (1.) effective or operating as a cause or agent (2.) expressing causation; specif.: being a linguistic form that indicates that the subject causes an act to performed or a condition to come into being.

You see, Rev. 12:4 declares that Satan drew the third part of God's children away from God, and CAUSED them to fall to the earth, which is a figure of speech meaning he caused them to "fall" from "tamiym", perfection, from the good graces of our Father and from listening to and following Him! Satan "sinned". He LED GOD'S CHILDREN ASTRAY!

Rev. 12:4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven (we.us! We are the stars of heaven), and did cast them to the earth:
That, my friends, is the GROSS SIN that Satan committed. It wasn't so bad that he himself became corrupted, for He could have been removed from the scene and life would have continued on as "rosy" as it was in the very beginning when Gen. 1:1 came to pass and God created this beautiful earth and His sons were happy and delighted and joyful.

We will soon read that our Father was VERY angry about all of this, VERY angry!  Let's finish Ezekiel 28:16.

Ezekiel 28:16 [..continued]  therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.
Satan was REMOVED from office and the "Breastplate of the 12 Stones" was stripped from his vesture as the FIRST JUDGMENT takes place (we are reading it now) and he is to be found GUILTY by virtue of the overwhelming preponderance of the EVIDENCE and his DEATH SENTENCE is about to be announced!

Here is more of what the Judge has to say to Satan. God already said in the last verse that because of his wealth and financial dealings he HAS BEEN FILLED with VIOLENCE, which doesn't mean what we normally think of as violence. It is the Hebrew word "chamac" and it means "corruption":

chamac*, khaw-mawce', Hebrew 2555; from Hebrew 2554 (chamac*); violence; by implication wrong; by meton. unjust gain :- cruel (-ty), damage, false, injustice, oppressor, unrighteous, violence (against, done), violent (dealing), wrong.
So Satan became very CORRUPT and was fired from all his high positions. What else did he do?
Ezekiel 28:17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness:
Oh, he become an egomaniac too! He just thinks he's the greatest and people can't do without him. As they say, "Well there's another surprise!" Satan is Mr. Ego.
[17 ..continued] I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.
Check out this sentencing! Satan is going to get a great big lesson in HUMILITY, though not for his sake, but for the benefit of the other children (us), to serve as an Example and a Reminder to them! When will this sentence be carried out? During the Millennium when he is cast into the pit and everyone who walks by will "narrowly" look upon him, meaning they will "look down" on him and see him as the "slime ball" he really is. This will be embarrassing and very traumatic for Mr. Ego who was once a big man. Here is your documentation from Isaiah:
Isaiah 14:12-16 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
Yes, there were nations back then, and there are nations now, and there will be nations in the eternity (Rev. 21).

As you read this scripture in light of what we have learned in this study, the phrase "The Bigger they are the Harder they Fall" might come to mind. This Lucifer was great in power and authority and he took a Big, Big Fall! But worse yet, He WEAKENED the nations with his holier-than-thou, with his "I know what's right and wrong (the knowledge of good and evil) better than God's Word" attitude. In other words, he thinks he knows what is best for the people, which is nothing more than a bunch of his LIBERAL, EGOTISTICAL, SOCIALISTIC CRAP! It weakens nations! Look around you! Hello!

[13] For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
He wanted to completely take over! He wanted to be God! I look around and see many just like him in lofty positions of power who also think they are God.
[14] I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
I don't think so, Satan!
[15] Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
You're goin' DOWN, Satan!
[16] They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;
Yes, folks will marvel that they allowed this good-for-nothing, egotistical, idolatrous, corrupt liberal to cause such problems for all of us.

These next two verses contain Satan's FINAL SENTENCE of judgment pronounced by our Father. It is the ONLY ONE of its kind to this point in all of eternity!

Ezekiel 28:18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.
Satan has profaned the holy places, the HIGH OFFICES, by the MULTITUDE of his INIQUITIES, by one perverse scandal after another!

Maybe you would like to see the Hebrew word for "iniquities"?
`avon, aw-vone', Hebrew 5771; or avown, aw-vone'; (2 Kings 7:9; Psa. 51:5 [77]), from Hebrew 5753 (`avah); perversity, i.e. (moral) evil :- fault, iniquity,mischief, punishment (of iniquity), sin.
You know what our Father did about it? You are reading it now! He sentenced Satan to die, to PERISH. That's right, He sentenced one of his own children, who he at one time was very fond and proud of, to eternal DEATH. And so the once beautiful high ranking Lucifer, now the lowly fallen Satan, will henceforth be called the "son of Perdition", the one son of God (so far) who definitely WILL PERISH in the lake of fire!
[19] All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.
Yes, Satan will be a terror for a little while, even as God will use him in His Plan, and people WILL BE astonished at him when he is allowed to show up in this final generation and assume his former lofty position (even loftier, for he will claim to be Jesus Christ). But his sentence has already been passed and it is FINAL, and there is no appeal to a higher authority, for there is no higher authority than our Father.

Hey, what about all of the other children who Satan caused to fall? We didn't read anything about them being judged! Were any other sons judged back then?

Yes, actually there were some who were also judged (though they were not fallen ones) and even justified.  We will read all about them soon enough! You might even be one of them! But the good news is that the next court date set for FINAL JUDGMENT has been postponed until AFTER the Millennium, because our Father has a Plan to save as many of His children who will turn back to Him. It is called the Plan of Salvation, and it is a Plan of Love for His children!
You are about to find out why you are here, this time(during this earth age), in a flesh and blood(terrestrial body)!

Notice to Parents: The information contained next reveals what happened to the dinosaurs and other living creatures of prehistoric times. However, please be advised that this knowledge comes directly from the Creator of the Universe who is NOT recognized as an authoritative source by the government-run public school systems in the United States ever since the wisdom of our Founding Fathers was replaced by the folly of our, present day, Floundering Fathers.

At least everybody acknowledges that there was a time long ago when Dinosaurs once roamed this earth. Science calls that age of long ago "prehistoric times" while the Bible calls that age "the world that then was" (2 Pet. 3:6). Also, there is one other obvious fact that everyone agrees with, and that is there are NO MORE dinosaurs! They are ALL gone, extinct! A person would do well to take some time and perform a search on "dinosaurs" on the internet and discover all of the many theories man has devised about "how" and "why" they all became extinct.

The majority consensus is that the demise of the dinosaurs was quick and sudden and although some of man's theories as to "how" that sudden destruction took place, such as a comet or a large meteor or an asteroid striking the earth, are plausible and perhaps even likely, without the Word of God man will NEVER be able to determine "why" it happened. He can only guess. We don't have to. The Word of God tells us "why" they perished.

Let's recap what we have learned so far:

This is Before GEN. 1:1

1.) Wisdom was with God before He ever had sons and before He ever created the heaven and earth. (Prov. 8:23-25)

2.) God created all souls, including you and me, because His desire was to have sons, i.e. children. (Prov. 8:31) His sons (we) were NOT created in flesh (terrestrial) bodies but rather in what we will call angelic (celestial) bodies, just like His son Lucifer who he anointed to be one of the prestigious "morning stars", which is what his name means.

This is GEN. 1:1

3.) God then created the heaven and the earth to be inhabited by His sons (Isa. 45:18, Gen. 1:1) and they all shouted for joy when He finished it. (Job 38:7) This is the "world that then was" which science calls the prehistoric age of long, long ago, the age of the great dinosaurs. His sons/we did begin inhabiting the earth, which again is the reason our Father made it for us. We will soon document from the Word that there were cities and birds, etc., but remember, the sons of God[we] were not made out of flesh and blood at that time, which is why human bones and remains are NOT found along with those of the dinosaurs. Now you know why. Please be aware; We were not in these terrestrial, animal bodies, bodies during the first earth age. We had celestial bodies, angelic bodies. 

After GEN. 1:1 and Before GEN 1:2

4.) Everything was perfect and harmonious in those prehistoric times, in that world that then was, until the very great and high-ranking Lucifer "sinned" greatly (Ezek. 28:16) by drawing 1/3 of the sons of God away from Him (Rev. 12:4) and caused them to be cast down, i.e. to fall away from their Father.

5.) God then judged Lucifer [Satan] for his evil deeds and sentenced him, without appeal or provision for repentance, to die, to perish, to be no more (Ezek. 28:18). This will happen in the lake of fire (Rev. 20:10) at the end of the Millennium.

So you ask again, "where is flesh man in all of this?" The answer again is: "There is no flesh man yet. Up to this time God's children still have bodies which are not made out of flesh and blood". But there is a big, big problem! That problem is that fully 1/3 of God's family has fallen away and followed after Satan and his One World Order, during that first earth age, the structure of which you can read about in Rev. 12:3. (The political and religious system Satan had back then is almost identical to the New World Order found in Rev. 13:1, in this earth age, that he will have when he is soon cast out of heaven to this earth in Rev. 12:7-9.)

What should our Father do about those who followed Satan? He is not too happy, to put it mildly. Actually, we will read He is quite angry.

Well, He could bring everyone into accountability and judge them also, but too many of His children would end up with the same death sentence as their leader Lucifer. That is a very unpleasant thought for any loving parent to think about. 

Fortunately, in His infinite wisdom which He possessed from before the beginning of "the world that then was", He had a loving and ingenious plan to "save" as many of His sons as possible from the sentence of death already imposed on Satan.

So instead, God postponed everyone else's judgment, after He judged Satan, and He overthrew him and his World Order and He COMPLETELY DESTROYED the "world that then was", the prehistoric age, and the earth became a complete and utterly dark and desolate wasteland, and the water canopy that surrounded the earth was brought down and now covered (flooded) the entire earth's surface, i.e. Lucifer's Flood.

We have now come to the second verse in the Bible. The prehistoric age of Gen. 1:1 is over and the earth has now become a desolation.

Genesis 1:2 And the earth was (became) without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
So the entire earth became in the Hebrew tongue, "tohu va bohu", translated "without form" [tohu] and "void" [bohu] in the King James Bible. Here are their definitions from Strong's:
tohuw, to'-hoo, Hebrew 8414; from an unused root meaning to lie waste; a desolation (of surface), i.e. desert; figurative a worthless thing; adverbial in vain :- confusion, empty place, without form, nothing, (thing of) nought, vain, vanity, waste, wilderness.

bohuw, bo'-hoo, Hebrew 922; from an unused root (meaning to be empty); a vacuity, i.e. (superficially) an undistinguishable ruin :- emptiness, void.

We are given the details of this destruction of the prehistoric age in the Book of Jeremiah, chapter 4:
Jeremiah 4:19 My bowels, my bowels! I am pained at my very heart; my heart maketh a noise in me; I cannot hold my peace, because thou hast heard, O my soul, the sound of the trump, the alarm of war.
"My bowels", if you care to look it up in Strong's, is figurative for "my heart". Our Father is very pained that He must do this to His children and His beautiful creation.

Here's how Dr. Moffat translates verse 19:

[19] "O my heart, my heart! it writhes! On how it throbs! My soul is moaning! I cannot hold my peace..."
He anguished at the very thought of having to do the following:
Jeremiah 4:20 Destruction upon destruction is cried; for the whole land is spoiled: suddenly are my tents spoiled, and my curtains in a moment.
Ruin upon ruin, for the whole earth is ruined. SUDDENLY are my dwelling places ruined, and in an INSTANT all my shelters are torn down!
[21] How long shall I see the standard, and hear the sound of the trumpet?
God hated to do it!
[22] For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge.
The word "sottish" means "stupid". Remember, this is our Father speaking! This is what He has to say about His children. Here is the N.A.S. version:
[22] For my people are foolish, they know Me not; they are stupid children, and they have no understanding. They are shrewd to do evil, but to do good they do not know.
Note: If you do have understanding then you will understand that this verse is also descriptive of His children in this final generation who have once again allowed Satan to establish his corrupt New World Order. More on this later.

This next verse will document that the destruction God is referring to here in Jeremiah is the destruction of the entire earth, reduced to the EXACT same condition of "tohu va bohu" and "darkness" that we read of in Gen. 1:2, which we will parallel for emphasis.

Jeremiah 4:23 I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was (became) without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light.

Genesis 1:2 And the earth was (became) without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.

We now continue to read the description of how the earth became "tohu va bohu".
Jeremiah 4:24 I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly.
The great earthquake shook the mountains and the hills were moved with ease.
[25] I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled.
Everyone was GONE, He took His sons away from their beautiful home, and everything else was turned upside down and completely destroyed. You can witness the remains of the prehistoric world, the world that then was, in the layers of the earths crust.
Question? Have you ever read about or seen TV specials which speculate about a "Lost City of Atlantis"? Well, if you believe God's Word, then speculation is over for you. There WERE cities in the prehistoric age and the next verse documents it.
[26] I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the LORD, and by his fierce anger.
Who destroyed the prehistoric age and the dinosaurs and the cities and reduced the beautiful fruitful place to a wilderness? The LORD GOD destroyed it! Our Father wiped it all out and took it all away from us! And He destroyed it because of His fierce anger. He was very ANGRY with the evil caused by the Satan and his rebellion and the fact that 1/3 of His children (we/us) in our STUPIDITY followed after that corrupt clown, Satan.

Look around you today and you will see exactly the same thing happening. God's children are once again STUPILY following after EXACTLY the same "dung*" (Ezek. 4:12) from EXACTLY the same "man", Satan, the one who has been judged already to perish, i.e. the son of perdition. And most of them are SO STUPID (as God calls them) that they don't even know it! 

But THIS TIME they are going to LEARN so great a lesson, that hopefully will save their soul at the time of their judgment (and they will ALL be judged) from the same sentencing decreed upon Satan, which is to perish in the lake of fire and to be no more!

The fact is if you don't eventually come to "believe in", which means to do and follow the Lord Jesus Christ, and His ways (not this religious "dung*", which fills up churchianity and breeds Biblically ignorant Christians (which is what stupidity is) and allows liberalism to flourish and bring about a New World Order, then you will perish as it is written in John 3:16.

* I used the word "crap" in a earlier study which some folks don't think is a nice way for a Christian man to talk. So in this study I used the Biblical word "dung", which is a mild translation of the Hebrew word "tsowah". However, it seems to me that somehow, no matter what you call the stuff, it doesn't make it any prettier or make it smell any better! Besides, I've come a long way baby, as they say. I now say, "I don't give a crap" instead of how I used to say it.

So just how swift and sudden was the destruction of the prehistoric age, the "world that then was"?  It is evident that God literally knocked this earth off of its axis and out of its perfect orbit, because He created it perfect and we know it was a lush green "fruitful place" from the Arctic to the Antarctic (as evidenced by the mammoth discoveries we discussed earlier), but now it tilts and it wobbles as it spins which is why magnetic north and true north do not perfectly align and we are left with a Magnetic Declination, as anyone who knows how to use a compass will tell you. Do a search on the internet on "magnetic declination". 

MAGNETIC DECLINATION

The axis of the dipole is offset from the axis of the Earth's rotation by approximately 11 degrees. This means that the north and south geographic poles and the north and south magnetic poles are not located in the same place.

Declination is simply the difference in degrees from Magnetic north and True relative north to your position. True NORTH (north & south poles) are the axis of the earth. The north and south poles are the starting and ending point of longitudinal lines that segment the earth.

Because of this declination we also have what is called the "jet stream" which produces weather patterns and storms upon the earth that were not present in the once peaceful "world that then was". But our Father has also promised us that the earth will someday be restored and there will be a new heaven and a new earth age not be compared to this present, second one. You see, there are Three Earth Ages; 1.) the prehistoric age of the world that then was, 2.) the present one that we are in now, and 3.) the one to come following the Millennium.

The apostle Peter explains the three world ages to us and how people are "willingly" ignorant (stupid) about how the "world that then was" perished. 

God Destroyed the first earth and also the first heaven.

Scripture:   2 Peter 3:3  Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
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 the creation.

1st heaven and 1st earth.
5  For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:

2nd heaven and 2nd earth.
7  But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
8  But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
9  The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
10  But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
11  Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
12  Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

3rd heaven and 3rd earth.
13  Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.



 Verses 6 and 7 cerrtainly aren't descriptions of Noah's flood; the heavens did not perish in Noah's flood! Neither did the earth, only some men and animals on earth perished, and some men, at least eight, were saved!
Please log unto and read Live Link to->> #1003 for further information about Lucifer's flood, compared to Noah's flood.

Now we will go to Gen 1:3 and learn about the beginning of this current flesh age (and why we are  now created in flesh and blood bodies for this second appearance on earth) and how it applies to the glorious Plan of Salvation our Father has given to His children. 

How exciting the Word of God is. It is too bad it is not allowed in our public schools. We, His children really are STUPID, aren't we, when we expelled God and truth from our children's schools and now, instead, bring in Satan's crap to destroy them!

It reminds me of the recent e-mail I received which showed a letter that a little girl wrote to God:

Dear God,

"Why didn't you save those kids at the Columbine school?"

To which God replied:
My dear child,

"I am not allowed in school."

Next we are going to learn "WHY" we are in flesh bodies, and "WHY" it is a necessary part of the Plan of Salvation as outlined by Jesus Christ Himself in John chapter 3, which we will analyze. (Don't miss it!)
Unfortunately, because most Christians have been kept totally ignorant of God's Word by church systems* who have substituted religion and man's traditions for truth, they do NOT understand the first part of the plan that Jesus Christ told Nicodemus. Actually, most don't even understand John 3:16. Their religious beliefs which they acquired growing up prevent them from reading and understanding even plain English. And the blind shepherds (preachers) can't and don't help them.

* If you haven't read the "Letter to the Reader" which the translators of the 1611 King Jemes Bible wrote to the English speaking peoples, like you and me, then by all means log unto Live Link to->>> LetterToTheReader

It will thoroughly document, among other things, how churches PURPOSELY keep Christians CAPTIVE and IN THE DARK by withholding the light of the Word of God. You must read this letter. It is so revealing that the "systems" have had it removed from the King James Bibles you buy today! So chances are you don't even know about it! Do you?

We have already seen and documented from the Word of God what happened in the first earth age, the world that then was, and how Satan long ago caused 1/3 of God's children to fall away and turn from Him. We learned that it was this "sin" of Satan that was "why" God, in His fierce anger, destroyed that earth age, that beautiful prehistoric age when dinosaurs roamed the earth. At the same time He postponed the FINAL JUDGMENT of His sons, us, until after the Millennium and so ONLY Satan at this point has been sentenced to PERISH in the lake of fire. All others AWAIT judgment! That is why Satan is called "Death" and why he is called "the son of perdition", the "son who will perish". Again, the rest of, us, God's children will NOT be judged until AFTER the Millennium. (That of course is with the exception of the ones of us who escape that final judgment by accepting Jesus Christ as our savior so that we might receive eternal life during the "First Resurrection", at Christ's return, and not perish, as John 3:16 so plainly states.)

But before we go to the Gospel of John, let's read, again, what Peter has to say about the "Three Earth Ages" beginning with "the world that then was", a phrase attributed to him.

2 Peter 3:1 This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance: [2] That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:
This verse says that the words Peter is writing, including the knowledge of the first, second, and third earth ages, do not contain any new revelations because they were spoken of by the holy prophets. We have already read about the first earth age, etc., from Genesis, Proverbs, Jeremiah, Isaiah, etc. It has been written there all this time and yet few people have ever read it, much less studied it and taught it. Here is what Peter has to say about the last days, the days we are living in now!
2 Peter 3:3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
Just substitute the words "left wing liberals" for the word "scoffers" and re-read the verse. Here is the Greek word for "scoffers":
empaiktes, emp-aheek-tace', Greek 1703; from Greek 1702 (empaizo); a derider, i.e. (by implication) a false teacher :- mocker, scoffer.
False teachers aren't just false religious teachers, of which there are many in these last days just as Jesus said there would be. Many of those who educate others about past and current events, i.e. newscasters and reporters, are falsely teaching when they "spin" the truth, aren't they?
[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 the creation.
"There have been 'doomsday' prophets for millennia", they say. They do not believe that the sand WILL RUN OUT of the hour glass. (You might call it the "hour of temptation glass".) They either believe in evolution and that that process continues on, or they believe that this earth was created in Gen. 1:1 and continues as it was from that beginning creation. NOT SO! God wiped it out ONCE and it became "tohu va bohu".

 Peter explains it: in verses 6, 7, and 13
[5] For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: [6] Whereby the world that then was, (#1 EARTH AGE) being overflowed with water, perished:
 They are willingly ignorant of the fact that the Word of God declares that the prehistoric age of the "world that then was" PERISHED at the angry hand of Almighty God at the judgment of the Wicked One.
[7] But the heavens and the earth, which are now, (#2 EARTH AGE) by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
And this earth age, the heavens and the earth which we are now living in, AWAIT the same fate of judgment and sentencing to PERISH of those who will not repent and turn to their Father. That "day" of judgment is the Great White Throne Judgment.

So the Word of God says that He destroyed this earth before (the 1st heaven and earth age of Gen. 1:1) and He'll do it again. 

Scoffers are totally ignorant of this fact. 

Even most Christians are blind to it, but the Word of God declares it.

2 Pet. 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
One day to us is as a thousand years to the Lord, so things seem to happen rather slowly as we perceive things. However...
[9] The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
Our Father is very patient because He does not want any of His children to suffer the same judgment as Satan. It is His desire that all come to repentance, but unfortunately there will still be some who will refuse.
[10] But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
The word "elements" means "rudiments", not physical elements. The day of the Lord will come as a surprise to all the willingly ignorant and spiritually blind! And you know what? Since there is "nothing new under the sun" you can be sure that many in that first earth age didn't think our Father would actually destroy everything then either. History repeats itself, even from that first earth age! This heaven and earth age will PASS AWAY! Guaranteed!
[11] Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, [12] Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
This earth age, this SECOND earth age, the heavens and the earth which are NOW, are going to pass away with the coming of the Consuming Fire, who is our Father! Hebrews 12:29 "For our God is a consuming fire."

And the THIRD heaven and earth age, the time of eternal peace that we all look forward to, will be ushered in just as He promised!

[13] Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, (#3 EARTH AGE) wherein dwelleth righteousness.
Pause for reflection: We all realize that much of what has been presented so far in this study is not commonly taught by most churches, but as we discussed, it is up to each of us to check things out in His Word for ourselves. We are accountable for our own beliefs. Start by "checking out" the following scriptures which say "check things out for yourself".
1 Thes. 5:21
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.

John 5:39
Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

2 Tim. 2:15
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

So what is the Plan of God? We now know all about the first earth age and what happened, and so we now have enough background to learn and understand "WHY" man is "BORN" in the flesh. (In A Animal (terrestrial) Body!) We are not going to take the time to quote the verses in Genesis that most everyone is familiar with.  Moses records in Genesis 2 that God made Adam's flesh body and breathed the "Breath of Life" into it. That "Breath of life" was not the physical atmospheric air that Adam was to inhale and exhale. It was the soul of His son Adam! It was Adam's "breath of life" body, his spiritual body, which the eye cannot see. In other words, Adam was placed in a flesh body and he became a living soul, he began to tabernacle (to temporarily dwell) in a flesh body, which by the way, looked just like Adam before he was placed in it, because He made the flesh bodies in the image of the Elohim, God and the angels, i.e. He and His sons/we/us!

You see, when you are placed in the flesh body, you are bound by that flesh, i.e. you are stuck in there, until as Eccles. 12:7 says, the silver cord is parted and YOU, your soul, your spirit, goes back to the Father from whence it came and that flesh body you have been caged in goes back to the elements of the earth and decays, never ever to be used again. It's gone! It is even written in the Old Testament.

Eccles. 12:6 Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern.
These are all figures of speech meaning when a person dies, just like we say, "When a person kicks the bucket"!
[7] Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.
God put that spirit in that flesh body! The reason He did is so that SOUL could EXPERIENCE THE DEATH OF THEIR FLESH BODY and Then return home!
WHY? To LEARN, from this flesh and blood experience, what it will be like if they are JUDGED to DIE the second death, which is the death of their soul, as Satan has been!

Because you see, in flesh bodies the sons of God can experience DEATH without losing their souls! By seeing a loved one die "The Shadow Death" which is the death of their flesh and blood body, after which they can no longer communicate with that loved one, they experience what it will be like to PERISH (the death of their soul) so maybe they will shape up! 

Before the final judgment, everyone will come down from heaven, from our "first habitation" (one at a time, in our turn) and dwell in a flesh body and DIE in the flesh, ONE TIME, and ONE TIME ONLY!  (You may call it a real education in life and death, if you like)

Check it out:

Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
The judgment occurs AFTER EVERYONE has experienced the death of their flesh, and NOT UNTIL then! It is written. Here is the Greek word for "appointed":
apokeimai, ap-ok'-i-mahee, Greek 606; from Greek 575 (apo) and Greek 2749 (keimai); to be reserved; figurative to await :- be appointed, (be) laid up.
Did you know Jesus Christ said don't even worry about people who can kill your little old flesh body, you are going to lose it anyway! It is written! Be concerned about loving our Father who has the POWER to JUDGE YOUR SOUL TO PERISH in the lake of fire along with Satan!
Matthew 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear [means to "revere"] Him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
But NO! Men and women get all worried about their pretty flesh bodies and preachers scare them with lies into believing antichrist is going to physically zap people, and so the false preachers deceive them more and "sell them" a bigger lie that they are going to fly away in some Rapturemobile and be spared physical harm to their little old flesh. BIG DEAL! John the Baptist was beheaded. Peter was crucified upside down! Many, many Christians have been martyred. Are you a "chicken" or are you a Christian Soldier in the army of the living God. Your flesh is temporary and the sooner you deal with that reality, the sooner you can stop being afraid and do some fighting for the good of the rest of the sons of God who could be in big trouble at the judgment! The Rapture theory is a selfish, unscriptural lie perpetuated by Biblical ignorance.
Remember, we will read Christ's own words concerning the fact that all of the sons of God are to be born of flesh, birthed from the bag of water, and then be born back into their spiritual bodies through death or changed instantly to their spiritual bodies at Christ's return, before literally entering His kingdom! NO ONE can be "saved" until they at LEAST do that. Then when everyone has completed the appointed COMMAND to die in the flesh or be changed instantly at Christ's return, and only then will the judgment occur! Either reward of eternal life at Christ's return, (the first resurrection) or if not already saved, to live through the Millennium (still liable to die the second death) and be then judged by their works, at the great white throne of judgment after the Millennium. Even then, that judgment won't occur for 1000+ years.
 
You see, at the end of the Millennium, Satan will be released for a short season to see HOW MANY "STARS", sons of God, he can still draw away from God, AFTER everyone has experienced the end of his flesh life and AFTER ALL those who have not repented and accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior by that time, have been taught SELF DISCIPLINE by Jesus Christ Himself and His saints for 1000 YEARS, without Satan's evil influence and without the lustful desires of the flesh!

That, my fellow Christian, is the Plan of Salvation in a nutshell. Those who still follow after Satan at that point, BY THEIR OWN FREE WILL, will have chosen DEATH for all eternity! 

Here's the "checking out" of Satan's release following the Millennium:

Rev. 20:3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
It is worth repeating that you MUST go through the PROCESS of being born in the flesh. Believe it or not there were some sons of God who refused to be born of woman and they came right here and took to wife the daughters of Adam. We read of them in Genesis chapter 6. (Log unto Live Link>>> Genesis, Part 1, for further study.) The resulting union produced GIANTS* and God brought about the flood of Noah to wipe them all out (though there was another influx of them after the flood, which is where the giants came from that Israel faced when they crossed the Jordan). God then rounded up those disobedient sons of God who came here and locked them in jail, which lies across the great gulf in heaven (Luke 16) . They have completely BLOWN their chance to see the kingdom of God, as we will read in Christ's own words in John 3.

 There is much evidence on earth of the existence of giants (Goliath was 13 feet tall). You can begin learning of that evidence by doing a search on Easter Island and Bashan.

Also, read all of the Book of Jude, for he documents what these fallen angels [sons of God] did. They left heaven, their own habitation, where everyone awaits their "appointed" time to be born in a flesh body, and they DISOBEYED Hebrews 9:27 and John chapter 3 and they came to earth without passing through the womb. 

Here's verse 6 of Jude:

Jude 1:6 And the angels [sons of God] which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, He hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
These guys are history, archive material, clean out your locker! They weren't even judged yet they have CHOSEN DEATH by their abominable decision to disobey and leave heaven and come to earth and they WILL perish! You MUST be born of the bag of water, from the womb of flesh!
Note: The womb (meaning born in the flesh) temporarily wipes out all "memory" of the world that then was, which leaves one innocent and free from prior influence to choose to love God or follow Satan. That is what being "born innocent" means.

We will read our Lord's simple explanation to Nicodemus of those things we have learned. We will look at some "hard" scriptures and you will BE AMAZED at how easy they now are to understand, whereas before no one could explain them to you! In fact, you will know what they mean without explanation from someone else because through His Word you are no longer ignorant of the "World That Then Was" and what happened there!

There are a multitude of people who call themselves "Spirit Filled" or "Born Again" Christians. What they mean by "Born Again" is that they have put off, i.e. buried, the old sinful man, symbolized by the immersion at baptism, and have been "begotten by", i.e. received the Holy Spirit giving them new life, a rebirth of the spirit, creating a new inner man, or woman (as Paul calls it).

Such is certainly a true description of one who comes to repentance and accepts the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and now "believes" on Him. This conversion, this changing of one's heart and mind and conduct, is very eloquently described by the Apostle Paul in Ephesians chapter 4:

Ephes. 4:20 But ye have not so learned Christ; [21] If so be that ye have heard Him, and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: [22] That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; [23] And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; [24] And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
So if Christians want to go around saying they are "Born Again" because they have been begotten by the Holy Spirit and have been renewed in the spirit of their mind, that's fine, we understand what they mean. BUT, the description of the conversion process and the term "Born Again" are erroneously taken from the first part of the third chapter of the Gospel of John.

Let's read the conversation between Nicodemus and Jesus where the Lord is actually going to explain to Nicodemus the process of how our Father intends for us to enter into this world and then return to Him.

Note: We know there are some who won't "see" or understand this section of scripture because they have been so ingrained with the traditional "Born Again" terminology, that it overpowers their ability and blinds them to the simplicity of what Christ is teaching. If you are a new person studying with us and have grown up with these verses being interpreted as begettal by the Holy Spirit, then place this study in a separate file folder and let it rest in a digital state for a while and revisit it sometime in the future.
John 3:1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
The name "Nicodemus" means "victorious among the people" and for a Pharisee and a ruler of the Jews to believe in Jesus as he did, was a victory indeed! We begin by seeing Nicodemus come to Jesus by night, because he was cautious and wise man.
[2] The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto Him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
Nicodemus had NO DOUBT that Jesus was from God. In fact Nicodemus believed in Jesus and he, along with Joseph of Arimathaea, defended Jesus Christ at the trial of the Sanhedrin the night before the crucifixion, and won too!

The subject that Jesus is now going to talk to Nicodemus about is "Birth", i.e. being 'Born", not "Conception" or "Begettal"! We will see that Nicodemus clearly understands that Jesus is talking about "birth" as the context of his reply will verify.

[3] Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
This is where the phrase "Born Again" comes from. However, for the word "again" the manuscripts use the Greek word "anothen" which means "from above". Here's the definition of "anothen":
anothen, an'-o-then, Greek 509; from Greek 507 (ano); from above; by analogy from the first; by implication anew :- from above, again, from the beginning (very first), the top.
A number of translations such as Moffat and Phillips correctly read "born from above" instead of "born again", while many others such as the NIV and the RSV have marginal notes which read "or from above".

And what is the "kingdom of God" Jesus said you cannot see, unless you are "born from above" and then of spirit. A kingdom is made up of a "king" and his "dominion". The kingdom of God that Jesus is referring to is the SAME kingdom of God that FLESH AND BLOOD cannot enter into. He is not talking about spiritually discerning the kingdom in your heart, as people say, but the defacto Kingdom of God that the disciples wanted Jesus to SET UP THEN, with Him as King. That kingdom of God is established when Jesus Christ returns as King of kings and Lord of lords to RULE the dominion, the nations, with a rod of iron. If you aren't born from above you won't see it, by which He means you cannot ENTER INTO, as verse 5 clearly documents. (Not  spiritually discerning the kingdom in your heart, but actually (literally) being born back into your spirit body(Celestial body)!)

John 3:4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
Notice that Nicodemus does NOT interpret what Jesus says as begettal but clearly as actual birth. Jesus is NOT talking about spirit ENTERING into a man's mind. However, Nicodemus is looking at this from purely a flesh perspective, meaning only physically, i.e. that which he can see and touch and feel! His mind is thinking of two FLESH BIRTHS. Of course he wasn't stupid and he knew it was not possible for a grown man to re-enter the womb, so he asks the obvious question, "How can a grown man be Birthed Again".
[5] Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
"I assure you, " said Jesus, "that unless a man is born from water and from spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. Flesh gives birth to flesh and spirit gives birth to spirit;" (Phillips)

Again, it is written in 1 Cor. 15:50 that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Jesus is talking about LITERALLY, ENTERING INTO the kingdom of God. Be patient. Verse 13 will summarize this all for us.

Also, no where in this conversation does Jesus talk about the spirit entering a man! He is talking about a man being BORN first of "water" AND then of being born of "spirit".

Note to advanced students: This verse actually contains all three earth ages if one has eyes to see and are not, as Peter wrote, ignorant of the first earth age and the fact that God destroyed it. If you have followed along from the beginning of our study to this point then you know when man, the sons of God, was created. It was "before the earth ever was made" (Prov. 8), i.e. even before Gen. 1:1.

Reminder, after He created us, His children, God then created the heaven and earth of Gen. 1:1, to be inhabited by us Isa. 45:18. Then at the rebellion of Lucifer, He destroyed that prehistoric earth age and brought us, His children, back to our "first habitation" where we were before God created the earth for us to live on.

Then we read that after God placed mankind ('adam (with no Art) ="mankind"male and female) here on earth in flesh and blood bodies, certain of those sons of God (our brothers/fellow angels, also His children) left that first habitation and came here without being BORN of water! That is a NO NO! Therefore, they WILL NOT see the kingdom of God. That is what Jesus is talking about here.

WHAT WE TALKED ABOUT JUST ABOVE IS THE CREATION OF MANKIND AS DESCRIBED IN GENESIS CHAPTER ONE. NOT THE FORMING OF ADAM 'eth-'Ha'adam AND HIS HELP MEET EVE (the great grandparents of Jesus) AS DESCRIBED IN GENESIS CHAPTER TWO.
 man in Genesis 1:28 is Heb. 'adam (with no Art) ="mankind", including the races.
man in Genesis 2:7 is Heb. 'eth-'Ha'adam (with Art. and Particle) ="this same individual man, Adam".

 'eth-'Ha'adam (Adam) and his help meet Eve, who God forned using a rib from 'eth-'Ha'adam.    These two individuals were formed by God, as described in Genesis chapter 2; to be the ancestors of Jesus, the Christ child, when God decided He as His only begotten Son, was to come to earth to live amongst us for a short while as a human being. Then, being both man and God, He would qualify to sacrifice His life, shedding his precious sin free blood to cover the sins of the world; For all who would believe in Him and invite Him into their heart. God's plan was that this individual man, Adam's and his help meet Eve's descendants were to remain of pure pedigree for 75 generations until the birth of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ through the pure pedigree lineage from Eve to the Virgin Mary.

Since Nicodemus is struggling with the concept of these two births, because he can only see two FLESH births in his mind's eye, Jesus will now explain that the two births He is describing are of two different substances; one is of flesh and the other is spirit!

John 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh(into a, flesh and blood terrestrial body) ; and that which is born of the Spirit (into a, celestial body) is spirit.
Again, Jesus is simply describing the PROCESS through which "man" must go in order to LITERALLY, ENTER INTO the kingdom of GOD. A son of God, having a celestial body (a man), must come down "anothen", from above (flesh and blood conception), and be born of woman, from the bag of water (into a, flesh and blood terrestrial body), AND later be born (back) into his spiritual/celestial body, (not just have a change of heart), although that is necessary to be awarded eternal life.

Nicodemus' eyes are fully dilated and he must have a look of incredulity on his face. Jesus notices his look of wonderment and says:

[7] Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
Let's read it correctly as Dr. Moffat has it:
[7] Do not wonder at me telling you, 'You must be born from above'. (Moffat)
This next verse is a detailed explanation of one who has ALREADY been born of water, i.e. of the flesh, and is NOW born of the spirit.
John 3:8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
Now you can try to spin this verse any way you like, but Jesus is simply saying you cannot visibly see someone who is born of the spirit. They are just like the wind. You cannot SEE THEM WHEN THEY COME (are conceived by humans) nor can you SEE THEM WHEN THEY GO (return to the Lord, as in die, the shadow death, or are changed in a instant back into a celestial body).

So the analogy of the invisible wind is that you cannot SEE a man who comes down from above and is placed in the bag of water (the womb) and you cannot SEE the man when he departs from the flesh, i.e. is born into spirit, and ascends back into heaven (vs. 13).

[9] Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?
Nicodemus was a teacher of God's Word and yet he didn't understand these two births. So what else is new. There are many who claim to be teachers of His Word today and they don't understand either.
Oh, man John, you don't understand. Nicodemus was a teacher of the Old Testament and we are talking about being begotten by the Holy Spirit." WRONG! Jesus told Nicodemus he should have known exactly what He was talking about, because it is recorded in the Old Testament!
[10] Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?
What is it that Nicodemus should have known? We covered it earlier. Nicodemus should have known what happens at the separation of the water (flesh) and the spirit.

Here it is again:
Eccles. 12:6 Or ever the silver cord be loosed...
 This is a figure of speech meaning when a person dies. Since it is figurative,
 I like to read it as, "when that itty bitty silver cord which our tender loving Father uses to tie the soul of one of His sons into an embryo is cut loose"...
[7] Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.
Upon "the first death", the death of the flesh, the one that everyone must experience (Heb. 9:27), the body itself decays back to the dust it was made from and the person who came down from above and dwelled in that flesh GOES BACK HOME! You can't see it happening, but it does!

Again, Nicodemus was a teacher of the Book of Ecclesiastes and Jesus said he should have known this!

John 3:11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.
We speak using concrete visible examples (like birth and wind, etc.) and you still don't get it!
Question: If Jesus was talking about "begetting" instead of "birth" do you not think He would have used more visible and understandable example to illustrate it?
[12] If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?
If you don't understand what happens here on earth, how am I going to explain what happens in heaven.

The next verse gives a summary of what Jesus has been talking about, the process of coming down from heaven and being born of woman and then dying, which is when your spirit, YOU, return to God who sent you, as we read even in the Old Testament. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord (2 Cor. 5:8).

[13] And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
This is such a simple recap of what Jesus has just told Nicodemus. All He is saying is that NO ONE has ASCENDED (back) to heaven except those who have DESCENDED from heaven (from above and have been born of water and then, later back to spirit). The sons of God in Gen. 6 who came here and did not go through this process are now in jail and will NOT enter into the kingdom.

He goes on to explain in the last part of verse 13 that EVEN JESUS CHRIST came down from heaven and WAS BORN OF WATER, of flesh. He will go on in this chapter to explain WHY He came to this earth and WENT THROUGH THE SAME PROCESS that everyone else (all of us) must go through! It is because God loves His children, ALL OF THEM! NOW we get to the salvation message!

The short version of God's plan: You/we were first created as spirit beings with celestial bodies, millions, possibly even billions of years ago. Then after that God created this earth (the first earth age) for you/us to live on. Our brother Lucifer, who is also a angelic being, just like you/we were, was our priest and spiritual leader in that first earth age (The AGE of the DINOSAURS); But he sinned by enticing 1/3 of us to join him in his rebellion against God (he wanted to replace and be God)That's when God, in His fierce anger, destroyed that first earth age, sentencing Lucifer/Satan to death. God, because He loves us, pulled you/us off of the earth and back into heaven(at some places in the Bible, we are now being called "The Heavenly Host" or "The Host of Heaven"),  to await our turn to be born into a terrestrial body (animal body) after a restructured earth (this second earth age), for a short while (summer school, I call it to learn about both LIFE AND DEATH). God wanted to give you/us, those who followed Lucifer in his rebellion, a opportunity to still salvage our soul/s (not to loose them like Lucifer/Satan will, TO DIE AND BE NO MORE, loosing his soul forever, to permanent death). God loves you/us so much that He even came to earth Himself in the form of His only begotten son, to live amongst us for a short time, approximately 30+ years, as a fellow human man; then sacrificed his human life on a cross at Calvary, shedding His perfect, sin free blood to cover the sins of all mankind, for all of us who will believe on Him (Jesus Christ) and invite Him into our heart, to change our heart and make us acceptable to Him. He could do this (FORGIVE AND ALSO FORGET SIN, BECAUSE HE IS BOTH GOD AND MAN). All of you/us who do believe in Him and invite Him into your/our heart to change it and make it acceptable, will be granted eternal life at His (Jesus Christ's) return (The First Resurrection). The remainder of you/us who do not accept His offer of salvation by grace (do not believe on Him and invite Him into our heart, to change it and make it acceptable, during this earth age) will go through "The Millennium", the 1000 years after Christ's return in celestial bodies just like those of us who did, but in bodies still liable to die the second death, which is the death of your/our soul. Satan's death sentence will be carried out after the Millennium, after you/we have all been through this flesh and blood experience and you/we will have learned all about human life and death and how to equate it to the permanency of the death of our soul). The reason God is still allowing Lucifer/Satan to live is because God will release him/Satan for a short while, at the end of "The Millennium" to give each of us, with a still liable to die soul, a final test as to who will be faithful to (God Himself, or will we still follow Lucifer/Satan). If you/we remain faithful to God you/we will also be granted eternal life, based on your/our works during the 1000 years. (No longer by faith, as prior to Christ's return, because JESUS CHRIST will be with us for the whole 1000 years. It won't take any faith, on our part, because we will be able to see him.) So it will be based on your works; STILL COVERED BY HIS SHED BLOOD, BUT BY WORKS, NOT FAITH. If you/we still choose to follow Satan, you/we will also receive the same punishment as Satan; The loss of your/our soul (TO BE NO MORE). If you now remain faithful to God you will also be granted eternal life, (The second Resurrection).

The reason is stated in John 3:16; so that we might believe in Him and live eternally and escape the same "death sentence" Satan received at his judgment, which is to PERISH in the lake of fire, and be no more. That is the second and final death (Rev. 21:8). Remember we read in 2 Peter 3:9 that it is God's will that no one should perish, but that all should come to repentance?

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
God appointed, ordained, decreed, ordered, commanded, any way you wish to state it, that ALL of his sons should be born in the flesh and die in the flesh being born back into their spiritual bodies, or if still alive in the flesh, at His return, instantly be changed back into their spiritual bodies and return to Him before the Millennium,  after which He conducts the final judgment. Remember we read that in Hebrews 9:27 "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment."

They must come down from above and be born of water (into a terrestrial body) and then through death, or instant change be born back into their spiritual (celestial) bodies and return to Him. In His love for His children, God Himself also went through the same process. He didn't ask us to do anything He wasn't willing to do also. So Jesus came down from heaven and experienced DEATH! He died too! But he arose again, in a spiritual (celestial) body, defeating death. Remember the room Jesus entered, to meet with His disciples, without first opening the door.
Yes, in His spiritual (celestial) body!

John 20:19 "Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, "Peace be unto you."

Hebrews 2:9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. [10] For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
Jesus, as the captain of our salvation, led the way for us.

Now think carefully about this next question. Must you accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and accept His sacrifice for your sins while here in the flesh?

What about the people born before He paid the price on the cross? They couldn't very well do that, now could they? Jesus hadn't paid the price while they dwelt here on earth in the flesh. That of course is why He went to those spirits (1 Pet. 3:19) while His body lay in the tomb and many washed their robes in the blood of the Lamb at that time! So reconsider that idea. You can still be saved after Christ's return if during the 1000 years of the Millennium you learn the difference between "What is Holy (Jesus) and what is profane (Satan)"; But it will not be by faith, it will be by your works after learning this. 

Now, as promised here are some scriptures that should be very easy to understand now that you know what happened in the first earth age, the "world that then was".

Here is what the Lord said regarding the prophet Jeremiah:

Jeremiah 1:4 Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, [5] Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
Of course God knew Jeremiah before He placed him in his mother's belly. He knew you too, as we will see!

How about this passage concerning Jacob and Esau:

Romans 9:11 (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;) [12] It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger. [13] As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.
The word "hated" means to "love less" by comparison. In other words, God had less respect for one little baby in Rebecca's womb than the other little baby. How can this be? They weren't even BORN YET! The natural question which follows is:
[14] What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid.
Of course there is no unrighteousness with our Father. He is always completely fair, for it is written that God is no respecter of persons (Rom. 2:11, Col. 3:25). He KNEW how disrespectful Esau was in the "world that then was"! He knows all of us, His children, very well.

What about you? As we just read in verse 11, this has to do with "election". You see, not everybody followed Satan in the prehistoric age of the "world that then was". Some stood against that Old Dragon in that world and stood by our Father, and so He chose them, and predestined them according to His good pleasure, to use as He sees fit in this flesh dispensation of His Plan of Salvation to restore and bring back His sons to Him. Those he chose are called the remnant and God's elect.

As it is written, even before the foundation of this earth (age) God chose His elect. The Apostle Paul explains:

Ephes. 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: [4] According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
The word "foundation" used here is "katabole" in Greek which comes from kataballo. Here's Strong's definition. Notice it means to "throw down" or "cast down".
kataballo, kat-ab-al'-lo, Greek 2598; from Greek 2596 (kata) and Greek 906 (ballo); to throw down :- cast down, lay.
The Greek word for "world" is kosmos which is where we get our English word "cosmos", which means world in the sense of "system" or "world age".
kosmos, kos'-mos, Greek 2889; probably from the base of Greek 2865 (komizo); orderly arrangement, i.e. decoration; by implication the world (in a wide or narrow sense, including its inhabitant, literal or figurative [moral]) :- adorning, world.
Paul is saying that God's elect were chosen before the overthrow attempt of Lucifer, now called Satan, before the casting down of the kosmos, the world that then was, which means God's elect were chosen before Genesis 1:2 when the world became "tohu va bohu". It sure makes a lot of sense now, doesn't it?
[5] Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, [6] To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
Jeremiah was just one example showing us how God chooses His elect, even names some of them, before they are ever placed in their mother's belly, to do the job God already "predetermined" for them to do! Paul was another one, and he was struck down and placed in service when God was ready to use him.

The question is, "Are you one of God's elect?" If you are, you have a DESTINY, a predetermined JOB TO DO! If you haven't discovered it yet, don't worry, YOU WILL!

So keep studying His Word until He is ready for you!

There are many wonderful truths we can learn from the very Creator of the universe and the Father of our souls, if we will just take the time to seek Him and study the wealth of information He has written to us in His letter. You see, the Bible isn’t merely some religious work written by man, though men were used to lay down the words on its pages, many of which they didn’t even understand. The Bible is truly the Word of God and in it our Father reveals the “Whys” and “Wherefores” of the existence of His creation and life itself. He also reveals that there is a great Plan being worked out here on earth which is unfolding according to the precise timeline He set forth from before the beginning of this earth age.

In the opening paragraph of this study on The Plan of God we asked four questions: “Why are you here? How did you get here? Where did you come from? What happens to you when you die?” We learned the exciting answers to all four of them.

Science, however, cannot answer ANY of the above questions with their scientific methods. Yet many “so-called” scientists  attempt to do so apart from the explanations revealed by the one who is responsible for creation and life in the first place. So man comes up with “Big Bang” theories about how the universe began, and spontaneous combustion theories about how life began, and even sillier evolution theories to explain the different varieties of plants and animals. And then get this! They give themselves “degrees” like Bachelor of Science and Masters Degrees and big lofty titles like PhD, as if alphabet soup following their name somehow gives credibility to stupidity and the lack of common sense. They do deceive themselves in their own egos. Solomon was so right as he opened his discourse on the ways of flesh man:

Eccles. 1:2 Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.
On the other hand, we the so-called “un-enlightened”, have learned the answers to the four questions simply by reading the Basic Information By Loving El (the BIBLE). And look what else we have learned along the way. We have discovered why the dinosaurs became extinct and we learned that in prehistoric times, the era that the apostle Peter calls the “World That Then Was”, there were cities much like the famed “Lost City of Atlantis”. We even learned how those cities became “lost” when our Father turned that world upside down and destroyed everything in His fierce anger at the rebellion of Satan and his corrupt influencing and trafficking of goods and services and drawing away of God's children. Our Father didn't like it then and He doesn't like it now!
 
And while most all of Christendom awaits the kingdom of God and the return of Jesus Christ when He will usher in what is called the Millennium, a term which simply means one thousand years, we have learned that before that happens EVERY son of God (angel) must come down from heaven, from above, from the first inhabitable place wherein we dwelled before He created this beautiful earth for us, and be born of woman. So by the time of the Millennium, which is the Day of the Lord, the 7th Day of the Week, the Day of Rest, all of God's children will have experienced flesh and blood life and will have either died that first death, in which case they are already in their spiritual bodies, or they will be changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, into their spiritual bodies when Christ returns, as Paul explains so well in 1 Cor. chapter 15. Either way, the flesh age is OVER at the sound of the 7th Trump and the return of the King of kings. Satan will then be bound during the 1000 year reign of Christ and His saints only to be released for a short season at the end to see if any will still follow after him. After that, THE JUDGMENT and the lake of fire. Then the New Heaven and the New Earth will begin and last for all of eternity!
You know, it is hard to imagine that after what happened in the first earth age, which God destroyed, and the thousands of years track record of the pain and suffering and death of flesh man caused by disobedience to God, followed by the contrasting peace and harmony for 1000 years produced by the strict adherence to God's ways, enforced by the "rod of iron" rule of Jesus Christ and His saints during that Millennium, that anyone could possibly still follow after liberalism and Satan's ways. Yet apparently some will! But it will be by their own FREE WILL decision that they have chosen to die the second death, which is to perish (to be no more) in the lake of fire following the Great White Throne Judgment.
Because you see, it is not our loving Father's WILL that any of His children should perish, but that they all repent and turn to Him and love Him. And so He is not only very patient with us but He is longsuffering toward us, meaning His plan to restore His children to Him, to salvage them from the sentencing of death, spans many thousands of years before He finally holds judgment.
Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
And to show just how much our Father loves His children and longs for them to love Him, He was willing, in the person of His only begotten Son, Jesus the Christ, to descend from above and be born of the bag of water and suffer the temptations and pulls of the flesh just like us. However, He did it perfectly and without sin and so upon His death, as the perfect,  unblemished sacrificial Lamb, He PAID THE PRICE for our sins and transgressions so that we who love and believe in Him can receive eternal life and escape the penalty of death, ourselves, for our sins (the second death which is the death of your soul), which is that same sentencing to perish that Satan has already been given. Again, He came from above because He loves us:
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
We have an opportunity to accept Jesus Christ as our personal savior while here in these flesh vessels and be granted eternal life, i.e. raised to the level of immortality, when He returns at the second advent. But all of the sons of God who are not part of that first resurrection will face the final judgment at the end of the Millennium, some of whom will receive everlasting life (the second and final time eternal life is given, which is the second resurrection, i.e. the second raising to immortality) and some to everlasting death!
So go for it now! Your Father loves you more than you can ever know! If you do, you will be with Jesus Christ and His saints and be part of the administration of the Royal Kingdom of God during the Millennium and will not face the final judgment, since you have already been granted immortality and the second death judgment does not apply. Here is your documentation.
Rev. 20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
So where are we now in the overall Plan of God? We are nearing the VERY END of the 6 days (6000 years) since the individual man,
 " 'eth-ha adham " Adam and his help meet Eve were formed. They being the grandparents of Jesus, by 74 generations from Adam and Eve until the birth of Jesus to Mary).

The Companion Bible contains notes directly from the Massorah text, pointing out any discrepancies from the original manuscripts.
The Companion Bible (KJV) The text is that of the Authorized Version of 1611  as published by the Revisers in their "Parallel Bible" in 1886. It is the absolute BEST Study Bible that I know of. Each Book of the Bible is introduced, outlined and it's structure is shown. Every page of the text has a parallel column jammed packed with explanatory notes. Many of the Old Testament notes are based upon Ginzberg's collection of the Massorah (small writings in the margins of the original Hebrew texts to prevent errors and bring attention to corruption during copying). E. W. Bullinger, the Editor of The Companion Bible, was the only Christian Ginzberg allowed to help him with his collection of the Masoretic Notes or even to see them. This is the ONLY place I know where an English reader has access to this extremely enlightening material. Plus, the New Testament marginal notes are a great help to any Bible student, as well! Not to mention the virtual treasure trove of Bible knowledge available in the 198 appendices in the back of the book.

BUT before we go further into the overall Plan of God, to salvage mankind, let's make sure you understand that chapters one and two of Genesis are describing two different creations or forming of FLESH MAN!

Sixth day man's {mankind's, including the races} creation is described in Genesis chapter one!

Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man ("adam") in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
The Hebrew word translated "man" is 'adham.

Here in chapter one in the manuscripts it is not preceded by the definite article 'eth and so it does not refer to a specific person, i.e. the word adam means human being or mankind, and no gender is implied.

This is an extremely important point to understand in order that you may fully comprehend the events in the next few chapters.

Let "us" make mankind in "our" image, i.e. all the races of mankind except for one particular race.

The creation of man as described in chapter two is that of the one particular race of which our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is to descend from. For lack of a better description we'll call the forming of this particular race, the eighth day creation, only because we know it happened after the SEVENTH day of rest!.

Eighth day man (the individual man named Adam) is formed as described in Genesis chapter two!

Genesis 2:7
And the LORD God formed man (" 'eth-ha adham") of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Here in chapter two, in the manuscripts, The Hebrew word "man" used here is " 'eth-ha adham ", with the article and particle, and means "this same man Adam". It means a specific man, not mankind in general.


If you are fortunate to have a Companion Bible, it will document this for you.

Since the individual man (Adam) and his wife (Eve) were formed, and the 7th Day (1000 years), the Day of the Lord, the Sabbath of Rest, is fast approaching. Is it possible therefore, for Jesus Christ to return today? There are many, many Christian preachers and ministers who will tell you YES, So wear clean underwear! The CORRECT Biblical answer is ABSOLUTELY NOT! While it is true that no man knows the precise moment when He WILL return, He has foretold ALL THINGS that MUST transpire BEFORE He comes!  Mark 13:23, "But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things." Therefore we know when He WILL NOT return, and He will NOT return 'till all these things be fulfilled. Matthew 24:34, "Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled."
In fact, the Apostle Paul even made it quite clear in 2 Thes. 2 that we WILL NOT gather back to the Lord, i.e. He will not return, until the son of perdition (you know who he is, the only son so far sentenced to perish) sits in the temple and claims to be God.
2 Thes. 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
The subject is our gathering back to Jesus, i.e. His second advent.
[2] That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
This is not something you ever have to wonder about or be anxious about, or loose any sleep over. And don't let anyone deceive you, because MOST WILL, because most are Biblically illiterate in these last days of the great famine (Amos 8:11) and Jesus warned that MANY would come as Christian ministers and deceive MANY! Don't be one who is deceived by them.
The following MUST take place BEFORE we gather back to Christ at the 7th Trump. The following happens at the 6th Trump. (So it is really quite simple. Just always remember that 6 comes before 7.)
[3] Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
That great falling away is when the world, including the majority of Christianity, believe that Satan is in fact Jesus Christ and they worship him as such. It is written that he will do wonderful things and even perform miracles in the sight of men. After all, he is a supernatural archangel.
[4] Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
The Great Apostasy (falling away) is when Christians worship this abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel the prophet, as the Messiah. How disgusting indeed! But many alive today followed him in the first earth age, and they will do so again in this one! So again, where are we in the overall Plan of God? Well, it is a Biblical fact that History repeats itself, which is another way of saying that History is Prophecy.

Here's how king Solomon said it:
Eccles. 1:9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
"Under the sun" is a figurative expression which means "in the flesh", even "in this flesh age".
[10] Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.
"Old time" refers to the age past the vanishing point, even to the beginning of the world, the first earth age, the time which was before us!
"old time" = `owlam, o-lawm', Hebrew 5769; or olam, o-lawm'; from Hebrew 5956 (`alam); properly concealed, i.e. the vanishing point; generally time out of mind (past or future), i.e. (practical) eternity; frequent adverb (especially with prepositional prefix) always :- alway (-s), ancient (time), any more, continuance, eternal, (for, [n-]) ever (-lasting, -more, of old), lasting, long (time), (of) old (time), perpetual, at any time, (beginning of the) world (+ without end). Compare Hebrew 5331 (netsach), Hebrew 5703 (`ad).
What happened in the first earth age is about to happen again. We read in Rev. 12:4 that Satan drew 1/3* of God's children away from Him, and as Ezek. 28 documents, it was to his own form of religious worship and his own corrupt political/religious system.

Here is the structure of that First World Order:
* Population experts tell us that 1/2 of all the people who have ever lived are alive today. If what they tell us is correct; Since there are about 6 billion people on earth now, that means there are 12 Billion sons of God (by the way, 12 is the number of governmental perfection). So 1/3 of 12 billion would be 4 billion, right? So if the 1/3 who followed after Satan in the world that then was are alive during this final generation, they make up 2/3 of the earth's present population.
Rev. 12:3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
That is the "HISTORY" of how it was: there were 7 dominions (meaning the whole world, like our 7 continents) and 10 kings and 7 of them wore Priestly titles too (that's what crowns symbolize). Compare that to the "repeat", i.e. "PROPHECY", of how it will be in the VERY NEAR future when he comes again and takes over the high power and authority as the false King of kings and Lord of lords:
Rev. 13:1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
Though all ten of his kings will have "crowns" (religious crowns as well as being kings) under his authority this time, the coming New World Order is the same as it was in the First Earth Age, in the First World Order! And the whole world, all 7 dominions, will be deceived by this false messiah, this supernatural archangel posing as Jesus Christ and his 10 world ruling religious priests. Again, we read in 2 Thes. 2:4 concerning Satan, "Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God."
Here is your documentation that the 10 horns are 10 kings who reign with Satan during that "hour of temptation". You will also find it recorded in Dan. 7:24.
Rev. 17:12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
Again, it is written in Rev. 12:9 that when Satan comes he will deceive the whole world with the exception of God's elect.  Why won't they be deceived? Because they have the seal of God in their foreheads. The "seal" is His Word.
Rev. 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
If you do not have the seal of God in your forehead, then you are "marked" for Satan and his angels and the rest of his "locust army" to spiritually devour. The "mark of the beast" in your forehead is just the opposite of the "seal of God" in your forehead. You either have one or the other.

Which do you have?
 

If you do not know God's Word and the 7 seals and the 7 Trumps, which give us the chronological order of events that are transpiring even as you read this study, then you WILL believe that the first messiah to appear is Jesus Christ, when in fact he is Satan himself.

In conclusion, we ask you this final question? What are you now going to do?  The decision that lies before each child of God is very, very simple. One can either choose to believe in and follow Jesus Christ, which means to study and absorb His Word to the point he or she is "sealed" as one of His, or one can remain in the dark and follow the ways which "seem" right to man, the result of which is death.
Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
We as a nation have failed to keep God's laws of liberty and have failed to hold our politicians and preachers and teachers accountable to His Word for what they say and do to us and our children. One has to be BLIND to NOT see that our nation is decaying and dying from within and that those liberal politicians and theologians who reign high above us civilly and religiously have become our oppressors, and we have become more captive than our forefathers in the land of Egypt under Pharaoh, for we are also spiritually imprisoned as well as enslaved to a debt system economy controlled by Satan's own children of disobedience, the kenites. Even many of those who do see the moral and social diseases do nothing but whine and fail to realize the ROOT CAUSE of our ills. Satan and his ways, which our nation is adopting at an alarming pace, caused the destruction of the "world that then was" and Satan and his ways will be the downfall of this earth age too!
What must it take before the children will wise up and listen to their Father who loves them?

All that causes pain and suffering and death is written in the Word of God. The good news is, the answers to all of our problems and how to achieve eternal happiness are also written in the Word of God.

Please keep in mind as you read these accounts in Revelation that our Lord took John spiritually into the future (this is prophecy) and many of these events that he describes haven't happened, as yet, in real time even though John has seen them. 

Now we are going to read The seven SEALS of Christ's Revelation and "see" what He showed John is/will be happening in HEAVEN at this same time.
We are going to actually see the throne of Almighty God and what is transpiring beyond the veil that separates the two dimensions, flesh and spirit, "behind the scenes" so to speak.

Live Link to- Revelation chapter 12
God has allowed and is allowing Satan, through his children, the Kenites, to make alterations in our Bibles. When I compare some of our most popular new versions of the Bible to the original 1611 King James Bible it is shocking what I've found. Many of them published since the 1970s
Joel1:3 Tell ye your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation.

And because of this, Chapter 13 of the Book of Revelation is to many folks one of the scariest and most misunderstood chapters in all the Bible
By the way, if your father or one of your forefathers has broken this commandment of God in Joel 1:3 to tell your children His words contained herein, then YOU get busy studying His Word and learn the truth and restart the process with your children. John 14:15 "If ye love me, keep my commandments."

In Revelation chapter 14 we get to see what will be happening on earth when Jesus Christ returns. Good old John is still in heaven and once again he looks on and has already seen it..
Live Link to- Revelation chapter 14
In chapter 14 we saw what will be happening on earth at Christ's return. Now in chapter 15 we are going to see what will be happening from the vantage point of heaven at that same time. In chapter 16 we see the 7 Vials containing the wrath of God pours out upon those who had/will have the mark of the beast in their foreheads (minds) and who worshipped Satan, the false messiah, as Jesus Christ. 
Live Link to- Revelation chapters 15 & 16
In chapter 16 we saw the 7 Vials containing the wrath of God to be poured out upon those who had the mark of the beast in their foreheads (minds) and who worshipped Satan, the false messiah, as Jesus Christ.
We will now see one of those 7 angels who poured out the vials come and give us a "close up" view of the judgment of the "Great Whore". Maybe we should update the terminology a little and call her the "Great Slut" because the Holy Spirit wants us to get a real good PICTURE of exactly how He looks upon the false religious system  that spews forth from of our churches, that great city where the "son of perdition" will sit claiming that he is God (2 Thes. 2).  Also, be it known that our Father deals in reality, so if the terminology used here is offensive then one can always go to a church where they only teach nice things like cute little bunny rabbits and Ishtar eggs, real Biblical gems.
Live Link to- Revelation chapters 17, 18 and 19
We come now to the 20th chapter of Revelation at which point the 7th Trump has sounded and the true Jesus Christ has returned with great power and glory, bringing with Him His army of saints. Babylon the Great, i.e. the one world political system and the great whore along with Satan's role as the false-christ, the spurious messiah, has been destroyed forever and ever. And as we learned in our chapter 19, ALL flesh has been "changed" and everyone, both the good and the bad are in their spiritual bodies.
So it is the first day of the Millennium and John, who remember in Rev. 1:16 was taken there for an eye witness account, gives us another advanced news report, this time concerning the fate of Satan during the Millennium. Can't you just visualize the headlines?

"SATAN IMPRISONED, BEGINS SERVING 1000 YEAR SENTENCE"

John, the disciple whom Jesus loved, was present today as Michael came down from heaven and appeared on Satan's doorstep with a warrant from the King of kings for his arrest. Satan has been residing in the temple for the last 5 months (ever since Michael cast him from heaven) where he has been impersonating Jesus Christ and claiming he is the Messiah come. He also is being held responsible for orchestrating the murder of God's two witnesses, a despicable crime, which he has been actually celebrating with his cronies for the last 3 1/2 days
Live Link to- Revelation chapters 20, 21 and 22

In the beginning of this study we made the following statement about God creating us the way he did, with free will to either love or reject Him:
You know it would be much more wonderful and pleasurable to have someone to love and to share everything with and better yet, to have someone who loved you too! Well, our Father is no different.  In the eternity past, as we will document,  He was all alone and He desired a Family to share everything with and to love and who would love Him in return!
So, this plan He put together for us, is a long drawn out process; But you know what?
In the end God will have billions of children who not only love Him, but do so by their own free will. And all of us who didn't love Him, but loved evil, instead!  "WILL BE NO MORE" just like Satan.
And God will have created a universe full of people
who truly love Him, as He loves them;
And it will be
a universe with out EVIL
!


Someday, each one of us will stand before our Father, GOD, in heaven and try to explain our actions!!!
Unless they have claimed, the sin-free perfect blood, Christ shed on the cross at Calvary to cover the sins of mankind!!!
INCLUDING YOURS and MINE!!!
God has told us in His Word, that he will not only forgive your sins but will also forget you ever commited them!!
But you have to believe in Him(JESUS CHRIST, the Son of God, for He is God and became a human man also, and defeated death on the cross, therefore, He qualifies to forgive sin!!!) and invite Him(Jesus) into your heart, to cleanse it.
Do this and He will send "His Holy Spirit" to dwell in your heart, and He will do the job of cleansing it!!!

The angel is one of us!

John's Note Oct. 18, 2016: I'm now 76 years old and I've been a Christian for over 65 years, I have studied the Bible often, have read the Bible cover to cover at least a half dozen or more times and thought I knew it pretty well; But, recently the Holy Spirit has opened my eyes to something I had never thought too much about in the past. 

One of the most controversial subjects for Bible students is, the history of the earth and when human, upright walking man, first appeared. Scientist's opinion versus Biblical scholar's opinion.  Creation, as I believe, or evolution as most scientists believe. What have I learned recently? According to scientists the earth is many millions of years old. I have also believed that for the past 20, maybe 30 years (ever since I learned that there was a previous/first earth age). They also claim the bones of upright walking man have been found that are over 200 thousand years old. Because I'm a creation believer, I have been very skeptical of their claim, in the past. Recently I have reconsidered my thoughts on 200 thousand years versus 6000 years since Adam and Eve first appeared.

My position is:
God did create all of us, our souls, before He created the earth many millions, even billions of years ago; But we had angelic, celestial bodies back then; Not the flesh and blood, terrestrial (animal) bodies our soul is now housed in, so even though it happened a long, long time ago that doesn't explain how scientists found human bones that old.

 See Live Link to->>>  We were first created spirit beings.

In the past when I consider these two opposing findings; The scientific findings, against what I thought was Biblical, I being a creationist, concluded that the scientists must be all wet! But, after further study, with the Holy Spirit's help, I now believe that we may both be correct. Well, the scientists, at least in some things (for some, the non-believers, they will always be looking for ways to prove what they think the Bible says, to be wrong)!

The earth is indeed many millions of years old; But even that was after the very beginning. In the beginning there was no earth! If I read Genesis 1:1, putting aside my previous assumptions, the Bible tells me that God created the heaven first; And then the earth. I once thought, and probably most people think those two creations happened very close to one another or at the same time, but the Bible doesn't say that; It may have been millions, even billions of years between those two creations.

At first glance Genesis 1:2 seems to say,  God created the earth without form and void (Which according to the Hebrew dictionary means, 'in total ruin'); But does that short description tell it, the way it actually happened, or did God just skip over the details with out making them clear to our understanding? Why, Because the real human story, He wants to tell us, starts in verse three. Think, for a minute, 'Did you ever in your life hear about any one building anything in total ruin?' Well, I doubt if God would, either!

Or is it the Bible translators doing?
see below caution:

Caution to students of God's Word - Please remember two things when using our American Wisdom Series studies: 
#1. Our commentary is not God's Word. It is only our interpretation or understanding of "His Word" and even though we try our best to be accurate we may or may not be correct. #2. The King James translation, or any other translation, of the original Hebrew text has some words which were given different translations at different places probably because of the interpreters preconceived ideas of what they think God meant to say. For example: According to the notes in the "Dake's Annotated Reference Bible" the Hebrew word hayah in the KJV is Trans. (became) 67 times, (becamest or came to pass) 505 times, (become) 66 times, and (come to pass) 131 times, but for some reason in Genesis 1:2 it is translated (was)! That sure changes the way a person perceives the original creation of the earth, doesn't it?  Gen. 1:2 And the earth was (became) without form, ... Having said that, let us continue with our "studies". These studies contain knowledge, we believe, you must have to fully and accurately unlock and understand the Word of God.  
May the Holy Spirit be your guiding light. Sincerely, John Rhine


See Live Link to->>>  The Age of the Dinosaurs  
See Live Link to->>>  The Bible declares that there are 3 World Ages.
See Live Link to->>>   Is the earth only 6,000 years old as many Christians have been led to believe by 'willingly ignorant' ministers and teachers of God's word?

Now, back to  My position:

That first earth age may have been millions, even billions, of years long. We were here, after God created us, He created the earth for us to live on, except He now wipes our memory clean before placing us back here on earth, into our mother's womb, during this earth age. And we had celestial bodies during the first earth age, therefore, no bones were left behind, when God, in His fierce anger destroyed that earth age because of Lucifer's/Satan's sin of drawing one third of us (4 billion of us) to follow him when he rebelled and tried to overthrow God. So that doesn't explain 200 thousand year old human bones!

See Live Link to->>>  Lucifer's Flood
See Live Link to->>>  The Pre-Adamic World

Now we get to the Nitty, Gritty, of it all and why I now think the scientists may indeed have found 200 thousand year old human bones.

Genesis 1:3-2:1 tells us about God's remaking the earth to be livable again (it doesn't say, livable again, in these verses, but that is what he was doing), after the destruction of the first earth age; And how he placed and is placing us, as flesh and blood human beings, back on it after the other creatures (wild animals) that He had created. In verse 26 & 27 of chapter one He tells us He created mankind, in His own image. He created them male and female and told them to go out and reproduce and fill the earth with their like kind.

See Live Link to->>>   Flesh bodies similar to animal bodies
See Live Link to->>>   So, Who are we? Are we just people living here on earth in a animal type (terrestrial) body, although with greater intelligence than animals?   Are we hoping to, in our eternal life, live forever in a new and better animal (terrestrial) body, without pain or suffering of any kind?

The Bible, as I, and I dare say most people always read it, seems to say, in Genesis that Man, as in upright walking human being (Adam and Eve) was created a little over 6000 years ago. But, Were Adam and Eve, who you are thinking of, the first flesh and blood humans? The Bible records show them, Adam and his help meet Eve to have been created, or should I say formed, as recorded in Genesis chapter two verse seven, 6000 years ago. But, are they the same people talked about in chapter one? They are not!

 See Live Link to->>>  This message is for those people who seem to think Adam and Eve talked about  in Genesis chapter 2 were the male and female God created on day six as described in Genesis chapter 1.

Mankind, (the races), as created in Genesis chapter one may well have happened more than 200 thousand years before the individual man Adam and his help meet Eve (the grandparents of our Lord Jesus as a human man), were formed, as recorded in chapter two:  So the scientists, in this case, may be correct.

Let me explain my assertion.

The Hebrew word translated man, in chapter one is "adham", it means "mankind in general".

Concerning the individual man, Adam; the Hebrew word translated "man" in Genesis chapter 2 verse 7 is "'eth-ha adham", with the article and particle ('eth-ha), and it means "this same man, Adam". It means a specific man, not mankind in general. (formed on what I call the eighth day, I call it eighth day only because it happened after God's seventh day of rest.) The creation of mankind in general is recorded in Genesis chapter 1 verse 26; the Hebrew word translated "man" in Genesis 1:26 and 27 is "adham", without the article and particle. It means mankind in general. (They were created on the sixth day).

So, if  there was a long period of time between these two events, that would explain the 200 thousand  year age of the human bones the scientists say they've found. The Bible says 2 days but is that "a figure of speech"?  II Peter 3:8 indicates that it might be!  II Peter 3:8 "But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day."

Providing all I assert above is true and I believe it is; What does that mean?

I'll try to think this through based only on what the Lord has told us in chapters one and two of Genesis. Forgive me if I get off of the
chapters one and two topic. I have a habit of doing that sometimes.

First of all it means that the people created on the sixth day, when the animals were created  before them (that would be the 'beasts of the earth', wild animals, tigers, lions, bears, snakes, alligators and such) were the races, mankind in general. These people were told to be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth (actually refill the earth, since it was populated earlier during the first earth age, just not with men in animal bodies). God said in verse 26 that mankind would have dominion over these animals. He also told them to be fruitful, and multiply and fill the earth, and subdue all of these wild creatures. (verse28) All this happened on the sixth day; But how long was that day? (Was it over 200 thousand years long? And did God create all of mankind at one time or was it spread out over the 200 thousand years?) That would help us explain how humans first appeared in Africa and later in other parts of the old world (Asia and China, for example). These people were hunters and fishers, and gatherers, but did God teach them any kind of use of tools and weaponry? I don't know, He does not tell us He did. If not, It must have been a very hard and dangerous life they lived.

Now let's talk a little bit about what we are told in chapter two. This special man "'eth-ha adham", (Adam and his help meet Eve, the great, great grand parents of the virgin Mary, who gave birth to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We are told they were formed, not created as were "adham", mankind, in chapter one. God planted a garden (verse 8) for these two people to live in, they were not told to go forth and fill the earth with like kind. These two people, for what ever the reason, must have been thought of as special in the the eyes of God, probably because of some event in the first earth age, because He gave them living souls and He wanted them to stay on the farm (not roaming around through out the earth reproducing with mankind). They were to stay of the farm, (verse 15) so to speak, and remain of pure pedigree (Certainly, until Christ was born). These people were farmers, and were formed before the farm animals were formed (beasts of the field, not beasts of the  earth as in chapter one. In verse 16 He commanded them to not 'eat of' (a figure of speech meaning to fall for anything evil, said by) the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (Satan), or they shall surely die. (loose their "living souls").

But alas! They screwed up and fell for Satan's lie which must have been his wanting to 'touch'  Eve, because, EVE EVEN SAID TO HIM, IN CHAPTER 3 VERSE 3,  THAT GOD SAID, YE SHALL NOT EAT OF IT, NEITHER SHALL YE TOUCH IT, LEST YE DIE. God had not mentioned 'touch', so Satan must have planted that in her mind.  The Hebrew word (nâga‛ naw-gah') Which translated to English is 'touch' and means to lay the hand upon (for any purpose; euphemistically, to lie with a woman);

Anyway, after Adam and Eve had their orgy with Satan, God kicked them out of His garden and they lost their 'living souls'Then they became like all of mankind, having a soul, still liable to die, the second death. And you guessed it! Eve conceived and later had twin sons. Cain, fathered by Satan and Abel, fathered by Adam.

Satan, after he had Cain kill Abel, thought he accomplished what he set out to do, i.e. destroy Adam's and Eve's pure blood line; Except Eve had another son and at least one daughter who Adam fathered, making Seth's and the daughter's descendants of pure pedigree. The goal being to remain of pure pedigree until Christ would be born to that line of humans. That's when Satan had his fallen angels came to earth impregnating daughters of Eve to attempt to contaminate the complete blood line. It was working too, except for Noah's flood which God brought on that part of the earth when there were only 8 souls left of pure Adam and Eve pedigree. BUT THAT"S ANOTHER STORY!

See Live Link to->>>  Noah's Flood

From the Hebrew dictionary - nâga‛ naw-gah' A primitive root; properly to touch, that is, lay the hand upon (for any purpose; euphemistically, to lie with a woman); by implication to reach (figuratively to arrive, acquire); violently, to strike (punish, defeat, destroy, etc.): - beat, (X be able to) bring (down), cast, come (nigh), draw near (nigh), get up, happen, join, near, plague, reach (up), smite, strike, touch

The above notes about the original manuscripts for Genesis chapter 1:26 and chapter 2:7 are taken from margin of The Companion Bible. See Massorah protection of original manuscripts below.

The Massorah. (The Massorah is called "A Fence to the Scriptures" because it locked all the words and letters in their places.
This Is Appendix 30 From The Companion Bible.
All the oldest and best manuscripts of the Hebrew Bible contain
on every page, beside the Text (which is arranged in two or more
columns), a varying number of lines of smaller writing, distributed
between the upper and lower margins. This smaller writing is called
the Massorah Magna or Great Massorah, while that in the side
margins and between the columns is called the Massorah Parva or
Small Massorah.
The illustration given below is a reduced facsimile of a Hebrew
Manuscript (16.25 x 12.375), written in a German hand, about the
year A.D. 1120.

The small writing in the margins in this particular Manuscript is
seen to occupy seven lines in the lower margin, and four lines in the
upper; while in the outer margins and between the three columns is
the Massorah Para.
The word Massorah is from the root masar, to devliver something
into the hand of another, so as to commit it to his trust. Hence the
name is given to the small writing referred to, because it contains
information necessary to those into whose trust the Sacred Text was
committed, so that they might transcribe it, and hand it down
correctly.
The Text itself had been fixed before the Massorites were put in
charge of it. This had been the work of the Sopherim (from saphar,
to count, or number). Their work, under Ezra and Nehemiah, was to
set the Text in order after the return from Babylon; and we read of it
in Nehemiah 8:8 1 (compare Ezra 7:6,11). The men of "the Great
Synagogue" completed the work. This work lasted about 110 years,
from Nehemiah to Simon the first, 410-300 B.C.
The Sopherim were the authorised revisers of the Sacred Text;
and, their work being completed, the Massorites were the authorised
custodians of it. Their work was to preserve it. The Massorah is
called "A Fence to the Scriptures," because it locked all words and
letters in their places. It does not contain notes or comments as such,
but facts and phenomena. It records the number of times the several
letters occur in the various books of the Bible; the number of words,
and the middle word; the number of verses, and the middle verse;
the number of expressions and combinations of words, etc. All this,
not from a perverted ingenuity, but for the set purpose of
safeguarding the Sacred Text, and preventing the loss or
misplacement of a single letter or word.
This Massorah is not contained in the margins of any one
Manuscript. No Manuscript contains the whole, or even the same
part. It is spread over many Manuscripts, and Dr. C.D. Ginsburg has
been the first and only scholar who has set himself to collect and
collate the whole, copying it from every available Manuscript in the
libraries of many countries. He has published it in three large folio
volumes, and only a small number of copies has been printed. These
are obtainable only by the original subscribers
When the Hebrew Text was printed, only the large type in the
columns was regarded, and small type of the Massorah was left,
unheeded, in the Manuscripts from which the Text was taken.
When translators came to the printed Hebrew Text, they were
necessarily destitute of the information contained in the Massorah;
so that the Revisers as well as the Translators of the Authorised
Version carried out their work without any idea of the treasures
contained in the Massorah; and therefore, without giving a hint of it
to their readers
This is the first time an edition of the Authorised Version has been
given containing any of these treasures of the Massorah, that affect
so seriouly the understanding of the Text. A vast number of the
Massoretic notes concern only the orthography, and matters that
pertain to the Concordance. But many of those which affect the
sense, or throw any additional light on the Sacred Text, are noted in
the margin of The Companion Bible.
Some of the important lists of words which are contained in the
Massorah are also given, videlicet, those that have the
"extraordinary points" (Appendix 31); the "eighteen emendations"
of the Sopherim (see Appendix 33); the 134 passages where they
substituted Adonai for Jehovah (see Appendix 32); and the Various
Readings called Severin (see Appendix 34). These are given in
separate Appendixes; but other words of any importance are
preserved in our marginal notes.
Readers of The Companion Bible are put in possession of
information denied to former generations of translators,
commentators, critics, and general Bible students.
For futher information on the Massorah see Dr. Ginsburg's
Introduction to the Hebrew Bible, of which only a limited edition
was printed; also a small pamphlet on The Massorah published by
King's Printers.
1 The Talmud explains that "the book" meant the original text;
"distinctly" means explaining it by giving the Chaldee paraphrase;
"gave the sense" means the division of words, etc. according to the
sense; and "caused them to understand the reading" means to give
the traditional pronuciation of the words (which were then without
vowel points).

I hope and pray that nothing of what I said above Contradicts  any thing I posted earlier on this web site; But, I must admit I've learned many new things over the twelve or more years since first placed  this web site on line, and am not very good at keeping track of what's there. I do have over 6000 studies in my americanwisdomseries file.  If I have contradicted any thing I said earlier, I'm awfully sorry.new belief of my; Although these happenings are not a new belief for me: It's only the long period of time between the creation of mankind and the forming of Adam and Eve that is new to me. This is what I now conclude after further study, as of October 2017!
Live Link to->>>  What I Believe


If we humans were only taught the whole Bible,
book by book, chapter by chapter, and verse by verse,
rightly dividing the "Word of Truth", in our churches,
more people would understand their need for Christ in their life
 and
invite Him to dwell in their heart!


I believe we humans would more readily see the need to invite Christ into our hearts and lives, if we knew who we really were and are
. That we were really spirit beings who lived since being created, millions even billions of years ago, in celestial bodies (angelic bodies).  Before God, in His fierce anger, because of Lucifer's/Satan's sin, destroyed that first earth age He had created for us to live on/in and removed us from it. 
Live Link to->>> The First Earth Age
It is only in the past 6000 or so years, that God has started placing us back here on this newly, again made livable earth, in these terrestrial (animal bodies), one at a time, in our turn, born from the womb of a woman, after wiping the memory of our past clean, as a way for us to experience the life and death of our animal body, in order to see and understand what the permanency of  the death of our soul would be like, without actually having our soul perish as Lucifer's/Satan's is destined for.
Live Link to->>> The Pre-Adamic World
It is a shame that our Christian churches have been hiding much of what the Bible tells us for so long (many generations), that we now have pastors, teachers, bishops, and lay people, who should know better, but don't know what the Bible really says.
I believe there are two reasons for that:
(1) It started as a way to protect our children, who with still tender ears, from having to deal with what really happened in the Garden of Eden.
and
(2) To protect the felt lined plate, by not teaching anything too controversial and thereby, guaranteeing salaries are always met.


"The Blind Man From Bethsaida"

Christian, if you are going to get any benefit from reading your Bible, you had better have Christ spit on your eyes like the blind man from Bethsaida!

If Jesus Christ is your Teacher then you are never alone and you will always be able to "clearly see" the correct path to follow. It is by going to Christ and allowing the Word of God to anoint your eyes that you come to know the difference between the Holy and the profane, between the Tree of Life who bears good fruit and leads to life and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil whose fruit leads to death!

Make sure you can see both miracles Christ performed for the blind man from Bethsaida in Mark 8:22-25? Can you see men as trees walking? Or do you believe the seminary professor, who having tender ears, growing up in church, where he was taught that Eve's sin was disobeying God when she physically ate a apple in the garden that God told her not to eat, and still believes that; And therefore, never learned the truth, so he now teaches that Jesus messed up in his first attempt to cure the blind man's vision problem, but did accomplish it on his second attempt.
Be sure you can see both miracles!

The narrative at the bottom of the picture reads:
"Adam and Eve were told by God not to eat apples from a certain tree in the garden. An evil serpent tempted Eve and she and Adam both ate the forbidden fruit. Because they disobeyed God, they were forced to leave the Garden of Eden."
What is said in the narrative and illustrated in this picture is as far from the truth of what happened in the garden as night is from day, for it is the very twisted "interpretation" of God's Word by the prince of darkness himself, i.e. Satan.

It is an image created by "that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan,
which deceiveth the whole world (Rev. 12:9)" to keep you in darkness, from learning the truth.

We intend to shed the "light" on this "snake" and expose him as the liar and fraud that he is.

Yes, you need to see "Men as Trees Walking
NOT
"SNAKES IN THE GARDEN PASSING OUT APPLES!"
For until you do, you will never understand your Bible!
Eve didn't Touch a SNAKE;
She Touched (had sex with) a MAN (Satan)
! and bore twin sons, Cain and Abel.
Cain was Satan's son, Abel was Adam's son!

Yes, Cain's descendants are the Kenites talked about in Scripture! The Kenite Pharisees who had taken over the duties of the scribes Jesus addresses in John chapter 8, Is any wonder then that scripture was and is being altered and corrupted today. 
It is best that you to use and study "The Companion Bible" which is protected by the "Massorah"
The Massorah is called "A Fence to the Scriptures"
 See below for instructions on how to receive one free.

If you don't believe Satan would nor could do that to Eve tell me how his angels did it to her daughters in Genesis 6:1-4 (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 fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. (3)  And the LORD 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 giants 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 which were of old, men of renown.

And who Christ is talking to and about in
John 8:44 
"Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it."

And where did the tares came from that Christ told us about in the Parable of the Tares?

Live Link to->>>  The Parable of the Tares
Matthew 13:27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
The "servants" of the house knew there were tares,
toxic look-alike false wheat plants, in the field!

You could call them anti-wheats!

[28] He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
Hmmm, it seems the sowing of the tares was the deliberate covert activity of the enemy.

Should we go round those suckers up?

[29] But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
Let the tares alone! That's an order!
[30] Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

The Companion Bible (KJV) The text is that of the Authorized Version of 1611  as published by the Revisers in their "Parallel Bible" in 1886. It is the absolute BEST Study Bible that I know of. Each Book of the Bible is introduced, outlined and it's structure is shown. Every page of the text has a parallel column jammed packed with explanatory notes. Many of the Old Testament notes are based upon Ginzberg's collection of the Massorah (small writings in the margins of the original Hebrew texts to prevent errors and bring attention to corruption during copying). E. W. Bullinger, the Editor of The Companion Bible, was the only Christian Ginzberg allowed to help him with his collection of the Masoretic Notes or even to see them. This is the ONLY place I know where an English reader has access to this extremely enlightening material. Plus, the New Testament marginal notes are a great help to any Bible student, as well! Not to mention the virtual treasure trove of Bible knowledge available in the 198 appendices in the back of the book.     See Live links below:

Revelation 12:4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven (we/us), and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon (Satan) stood before the woman (Mother Israel, i.e. who today are the Christian nations of western Europe and the Americas) which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

What say ye?

    John's note: LET'S STOP AND THINK FOR A FEW MOMENTS ABOUT WHAT ALL THIS MEANS.  
If there are currently more than 7 billion people living on earth and the experts tell us that half of the people who were ever born are alive and living here right now. (I don't know if that's true or not, but if it is, that's allot of people. 14 billion people!) If it is true that means 1/3 of 14 billion people followed Satan, during his rebellion, in the first earth age. That's over 4 1/2 billion people who followed Satan. Is it any wonder God did not want to sentence all those His children/us to die, the second death (the death of our soul), along with Satan, when He/God in His fierce anger destroyed the first earth age and the death sentence is carried out.

I made my living as a printer for 50 years, so I know this, and I'll speculate a bit here; Think about this. It wasn't until 1454 A.D. that Johanes Gutenberg, in Germany invented movable printing type. Until that invention the printing of the Bible was not impossible but since each page, up until that time had to be carved from a block of wood it wasn't practical to try to do. Can you imagine the frustration if when you were carving the last letter of the last word on a page, you sneezed and the whole carved page, weeks worth of work, was wasted. 

Or when you put that block of wood into your printing press and started printing, you had a paper jam up, and smashed the block of wood making it's print illegible, and it had to again be carved. But with individually molded, re-usable metal letters, all of a sudden the printing of a Bible was possible and practical and by 1456 Bibles were being printed.  God certainly knew that and maybe He had something to do with the invention, and the timing of Gutenberg's invention. (It did happen in Germany, a Christian nation founded by descendants of one of the Israelite tribes who migrated west after the Assyrian invasion of the ancient "House of Israel") Also, is it only coincidence that the Bible was first translated to English by the King of another of the tribes of ancient Israelites, King James of England (the 1611 King James Version of our Bible)? 

My point is God knew all this and it is only speculation on my part but, do you think, since God's plan is to salvage the soul of as many of His children as possible, do you think God would have placed many of his unfaithful first earth age children in the womb of earth women, to be born into this earth age in the years prior to the printing of His Word in the Bible, when their conversion to Christianity would have been much less likely if their only knowledge of it came from hand copied scrolls, and than not very likely that the common man would have access to them. I don't believe he would have or did. That means that a very large (out of proportion) percentage of our current world population are people who were followers of Satan in the first earth age. (20th and 21st century population for it wasn't until the 20th century that Bibles were mass produced on high speed printing presses and available to the common man at a affordable price.) 

And even then Satan has been at work within our so-called  Christian church (as he is to this day) to prevent the masses from reading the newly translated Bible. See Live links to-  Letter To The Reader   and   Letter to Readers by translators of 1611 KJB

No wonder the world, especially we Americas have been turning our backs on our Christian heritage in the last 1/2 century. I can name dozens of ways! So can you if you think about it for a minute! And no wonder the city "Mystery Babylon" is now being built. Live Link to- Mystery Babylon  And no wonder Jesus told us, through the prophet Amos in  Amos 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:  Those days of famine are here and only going to get worst in the near future! There are more people living in today's world who followed Satan in the first earth age, and still do, (many of them KENITES) than there are people following Christ.  Live Link to- The famine is coming 

Since there are most likely more people living on earth today, in this 21st century, who followed Satan in the first earth age than the number of those of us who remained true to our Lord, the odds that you may be one of those 4 1/2 billion people who were followers of Satan in the first earth age are high.  Therefore; I recommend that you get a hold of your Bible and learn to tell the difference between what is Holy (Christ) and what is profane (Satan) before Satan shows up here on earth claiming he is God. You don't have allot of time to waste unless it doesn't matter to you, if Christ returns only to find you worshiping Satan, again!

This Is Appendix 30 From The Companion Bible.
All the oldest and best manuscripts of the Hebrew Bible contain
on every page, beside the Text (which is arranged in two or more
columns), a varying number of lines of smaller writing, distributed
between the upper and lower margins. This smaller writing is called
the Massorah Magna or Great Massorah, while that in the side
margins and between the columns is called the Massorah Parva or
Small Massorah.
The illustration given below is a reduced facsimile of a Hebrew
Manuscript (16.25 x 12.375), written in a German hand, about the
year A.D. 1120.

file:///C:/Users/Dell/Documents/AWSfiles/massorahsample.bmp

file:///C:/Users/Dell/Documents/AWSfiles/massorahsample.bmp

The small writing in the margins in this particular Manuscript is
seen to occupy seven lines in the lower margin, and four lines in the
upper; while in the outer margins and between the three columns is
the Massorah Para.
The word Massorah is from the root masar, to devliver something
into the hand of another, so as to commit it to his trust. Hence the
name is given to the small writing referred to, because it contains
information necessary to those into whose trust the Sacred Text was
committed, so that they might transcribe it, and hand it down
correctly.
The Text itself had been fixed before the Massorites were put in
charge of it. This had been the work of the Sopherim (from saphar,
to count, or number). Their work, under Ezra and Nehemiah, was to
set the Text in order after the return from Babylon; and we read of it
in Nehemiah 8:8 1 (compare Ezra 7:6,11). The men of "the Great
Synagogue" completed the work. This work lasted about 110 years,
from Nehemiah to Simon the first, 410-300 B.C.
The Sopherim were the authorised revisers of the Sacred Text;
and, their work being completed, the Massorites were the authorised
custodians of it. Their work was to preserve it. The Massorah is
called "A Fence to the Scriptures," because it locked all words and
letters in their places. It does not contain notes or comments as such,
but facts and phenomena. It records the number of times the several
letters occur in the various books of the Bible; the number of words,
and the middle word; the number of verses, and the middle verse;
the number of expressions and combinations of words, etc. All this,
not from a perverted ingenuity, but for the set purpose of
safeguarding the Sacred Text, and preventing the loss or
misplacement of a single letter or word.
This Massorah is not contained in the margins of any one
Manuscript. No Manuscript contains the whole, or even the same
part. It is spread over many Manuscripts, and Dr. C.D. Ginsburg has
been the first and only scholar who has set himself to collect and
collate the whole, copying it from every available Manuscript in the
libraries of many countries. He has published it in three large folio
volumes, and only a small number of copies has been printed. These
are obtainable only by the original subscribers
When the Hebrew Text was printed, only the large type in the
columns was regarded, and small type of the Massorah was left,
unheeded, in the Manuscripts from which the Text was taken.
When translators came to the printed Hebrew Text, they were
necessarily destitute of the information contained in the Massorah;
so that the Revisers as well as the Translators of the Authorised
Version carried out their work without any idea of the treasures
contained in the Massorah; and therefore, without giving a hint of it
to their readers
This is the first time an edition of the Authorised Version has been
given containing any of these treasures of the Massorah, that affect
so seriouly the understanding of the Text. A vast number of the
Massoretic notes concern only the orthography, and matters that
pertain to the Concordance. But many of those which affect the
sense, or throw any additional light on the Sacred Text, are noted in
the margin of The Companion Bible.
Some of the important lists of words which are contained in the
Massorah are also given, videlicet, those that have the
"extraordinary points" (Appendix 31); the "eighteen emendations"
of the Sopherim (see Appendix 33); the 134 passages where they
substituted Adonai for Jehovah (see Appendix 32); and the Various
Readings called Severin (see Appendix 34). These are given in
separate Appendixes; but other words of any importance are
preserved in our marginal notes.
Readers of The Companion Bible are put in possession of
information denied to former generations of translators,
commentators, critics, and general Bible students.
For futher information on the Massorah see Dr. Ginsburg's
Introduction to the Hebrew Bible, of which only a limited edition
was printed; also a small pamphlet on The Massorah published by
King's Printers.
NOTE
1 The Talmud explains that "the book" meant the original text;
"distinctly" means explaining it by giving the Chaldee paraphrase;
"gave the sense" means the division of words, etc. according to the
sense; and "caused them to understand the reading" means to give
the traditional pronuciation of the words (which were then without
vowel points).

We've seen the two great signs in heaven. One was a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars. The sun "solar" represents the "sun of righteousness", Jesus Christ, and the moon "lunar, having no light of it's own" represents the "lunatic", Satan. So you could say that the woman, mother Israel, was clothed or covered, even protected by the LORD, wrapped in His arms. And of course the moon is under her feet where the footstool belongs.

Then we saw a great red dragon with seven crowned heads and ten horns. This is Satan and his power structure in the "world that then was" (2 Pet. 3:6), before this flesh age, where his tail drew, i.e. dragged down, a third of us, to rebel against our Father and follow after him.

And we saw the dragon, Satan, standing before the woman, which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was to be born. It was to be born at the appointed time, at the first advent in this earth age. So we now jump ahead closer to that time.

When we read that "all living came from mother Eve", it means that "Messiah came from, or through mother Eve". He came through the offspring of mothers Eve, and Mary (who was of pure eighth day creation pedigree).
And it is through the Messiah, Christ is offering eternal life to all mankind. For acceptance of God's gift, all mankind must pass from death to eternal life through the blood of Jesus Christ. So we see this refers to spiritual life, and not physical life.

Rev. 12:5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.
The "man child" that was brought forth in the little town of Bethlehem when Jesus the Christ child was born. There are only two events that sit upon this throne, and the only one to do this was a child. Get it? That child is Jesus Christ.
This verse covers two advents [comings]; the first is Christ's birth as a child, and His second coming will be at the seventh trumpet. And then He will come to rule all nations with a rod of iron. Jesus Christ will come as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

This brings us to Mary, who gave actual birth to Christ, but as you know, to get to this point and bring forth the promised Messiah (Gen. 3:15) from mother Eve on, was no small task as that great red dragon, that old serpent, tried to devour the "seed" from the beginning.

And this "man child" was to rule all nations with a rod of iron, which didn't happen when He walked this earth and hasn't happened yet. He was born an innocent babe and died to pay the price for our sins. It is when Christ returns, at His second advent, that He takes command of all nations with the rod of iron. (Don't allow this to scare you! If you love the Lord and are one of His, you are on His side! You will endure until the end and NOT WORSHIP SATAN WHEN HE COMES TO EARTH FIRST CLAIMING TO BE GOD!)

Rev. 19:15
And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
What a day the sounding of that 7th Trump, announcing the Day of the Lord, that Day of Vengeance, will be. Meanwhile "her child was caught up unto God, and to His throne" where He now sits at the right hand of the Father, and He will remain there until all His enemies are His footstool.
Hebrews 10:12-13
But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; [13] From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.
Neither Jesus nor Satan are present on earth, in person, at this time. And we have documented time and again that they both are returning, in person, soon. Satan comes at the 6th Trump and Christ comes at the 7th Trump. Let no man deceive or confuse you by any means. Of course, both the Holy Spirit and Satan's evil spirit, as the prince and power of the air, are present now.

Rev. 12:6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.
This time is when God's protection is given for the woman "Israel". Following the resurrection, and transposing these days into years, it would bring us up to the early 1800's A.D., when the house of Israel nations became superpowers. (Great Britain and America)

From the parting of the Red Sea and the earthquake that split the ground asunder and swallowed all those who followed Korah, throughout the Bible, we can read how God has used nature and natural forces to protect His own and even defeat their enemies. It then should seem no great thing if the woman is protected by our Father, and she will be. We already read in Rev. 9 that Satan cannot harm in any way those with the seal of God in their foreheads.

But the wilderness is our place among the people, prepared of God, where He wants us to be. (This is why Jesus always taught in parables! But that is another story) It is not a physical place in the desert, like Petra, where we fly in a 747 Jumbo Jet to save our hides from some blood and guts battle espoused by Biblically illiterate preachers. We're foot soldiers of the Most High, and we can always be found on the front lines.   

You may remember that John the Baptist was a voice crying in the wilderness, and common sense tells you he wasn't preaching to the animals. He was preaching to us!

Matthew 3:3
For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
So where are we now? In the whole scheme of things?

This was a direct quote from the prophet Isaiah:
Isaiah 40:3
The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
There's not much food in the desert, is there? (Not much of the Word of God actually taught in most of our Christian churches, by our one verse Revs., is there?) What did it say the woman would be doing in the wilderness? Feeding for 1260 days. And so it is that the woman will be fed during the worldwide famine of Amos 8:11, even as we now can feast on the Word of God. (Most of what we now get in our Christian churches comes from a Sunday school quarterly written by "man", probably even a Kenite man!) So, if you are one of God's elect, it is up to you to feed our people, The Word,  directly from it's source "The Bible!

 The reason God chose to place us back here, on earth, for this short stay (120 years maximum), probably more like 70 or 80, for some only 20, or 30, maybe much less!, in this animal body is so that we can learn to appreciate the finality of death. As we experience seeing our loved ones die "the shadow of death", the death of their flesh, while we are still living here on earth in our own flesh and blood body and can no longer communicate with that loved one who has died. Seeing as how 1/3 of us (over 4 1/2 billion of us, God's originally created children) followed Satan, turning our backs on God in the first earth age (of course we were all in celestial bodies, our angelic bodies, back then), God is counting on this teaching those of us who still see no need to accept His offer of grace, in this earth age, to be saved by accepting the blood of Christ for our salvation, a lesson about the real death, ( by faith in Him, but only during this FLESH AGE) The death of our soul and how permanent that will be, which we will not forget during the Millennium, during which time we will be given a chance to still save our souls by being judged by our works. No longer by faith in Christ, but by our works during the Millennium,  He is counting on us, after seeing this, not wanting to experience the death of our soul, realizing it is forever, and so will live accordingly during the Millennium. (by His will and not Satan's)

Jeremiah 23:6 "In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS."
Editor's Note: This verse disproves the theory the many preachers in our Christian churches today promote, claiming that "The House of Israel" and "The House of Judah" have already been joined back together, when the "House of Judah" was allowed to return to Jerusalem, from Babylon, in the 5th century B.C. These preachers claim that the remnant, very small percentage, of peoples from those 10 tribes that made up the northern kingdom "House of Israel" returning with the returnies from "The House of Judah" fulfilled the prophecy of Ezekiel's joining of the two sticks, in Ezekiel chapter 37, and are now part of the group of people, referred to today, as the "Jews", even part of those people now living in the little country in the middle east which is called Israel today. How wrong they are! This verse shows that the joining wouldn't (will not) happen until Christ's return for His second advent, to set up His earthly Kingdom.

Live Link to-   Ezekiel's (two sticks) the dry dead bones.

Actually it is the opposite of what our pastor's assert that is true. Most of the ancient "House of Judah" (the two tribes of the southern kingdom) were carried away by Assyria back in 735 B.C. and migrated north and west into Europe and now on into the Americas along with "The House of Israel" (the ten tribes of the northern kingdom). They were no longer living in the middle east when Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon carried away "The House of Judah" in  586 B.C.

Dates of captivities:

The northern kingdom, "House of Israel", along with many from the southern kingdom, "House of Judah" were taken by Assyria, in 721 BC well over eight hundred thousand Israelite men  2 Samuel 24:1 - 9 and their families from ten different tribes (2 Kings 17, 18, and 19.)  In 2 Kings 19:32-34 we learn that only Jerusalem was spared.

Then, from the southern kingdom, "House of Judah" one hundred and thirty five years later, in 586 B.C,,  Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon carried more than one half million Israelite men 2 Samuel 24:1 - 9 and their families from the other two tribes, of Benjamin and Judah (the Jews), away to Babylon. 2 Kings 25:1 - 21.

(All total approximately 1,300,000 men plus their wives and children were carried away)

Since these so called Christian pastors believe and teach this falsehood they don't know how to account for the converted Christians since our Lord's first advent, so they call the Christian church of today "Spiritual Israel". I guess there is some truth to the "Spiritual Israel" part of their assertion but, not because they, we, for the most part are converted gentiles; but we are majority Israelites from the ancient "Houses of Israel and Judah", the northern kingdom and some from the southern kingdom.

"In the days" of the Branch, the Savior. This day is the day of His second coming. The word "our" is very special because it is a gift from God to ourselves. This is the only righteousness that you will ever have, because our deeds to him are as filthy rags. In the Hebrew tongue it is; "Yehovah Zidkenu".

Jeremiah 23:7 "Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that they shall no more say, The LORD liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;"

In that day they will not be talking about the delivery from the bondage from Egypt.

Jeremiah 23:8 "But, The LORD liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land."

Notice that that the two houses are separate here, the House of Israel, which were the ten tribes to the north of the House of Judah. The House of Judah comprised the two tribes of Judah and Benjamin. Today some of Judah has returned to Jerusalem, and the tiny nation called Israel. However the House of Israel has not returned to Palestine, nor will they until Christ has come and we have changed from our flesh bodies to our spiritual incorruptible bodies.

This delivery is new and to this day it shall not come to pass until the Millennium age. In that time all evil rudiments will be removed from us, and the nations and peoples will dwell in their own lands. Today part of the remnant of the House of Judah has returned and we refer to this time as the generation of the fig tree.

Read  all of Jeremiah 23

The Jews in that little country in middle east call themselves Israelis; They are a mixed lot. Some are indeed descendant of Judah, many are Kenites (Jesus addresses them in John chapter 8 verse 44).

Jesus is now going to identify exactly who these Kenite Pharisees are.

John 8:44 "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth because there is no truth in him, When he spaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it."

Do you know who the devil is? The devil is Satan, and he goes by many names. In Revelation12:9; "And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world;" In the Garden of Eden Satan was called the "old serpent, and the tree of good and evil"

Jesus is telling these Kenites that there father is the devil, who is also called Satan, the dragon, or any of his other names that Satan has because of the roles he has played. Jesus is telling these Kenites that the lust, and murder in your heart is inborn from your father Satan, and you are driven in your spirit to do murder because Satan is your father.

This is how we know Jesus could not be speaking to the brethren of the house of Judah, for their lineage is not of Satan, this is what the plan of God is all about. Keeping the lineage pure that the coming Messiah would be born from. That is why Noah was saved from the flood, as we are told in Genesis 6:9 "THESE ARE THE GENERATIONS OF NOAH; Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations,..." In the Hebrew text the word for "perfect" is "tamim", which means "without blemish, as to breed or pedigree". Noah's blood line was pure.

Jesus is making it simple, now who was the murderer from the beginning? Most small children could answer that, it was Cain. Genesis 4:8; "And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, And slew him." Cain was a murderer from, or in the beginning.

Jesus is telling it just as it is, The "Kenites" are the children [offspring by lineage] of the devil, through Cain. Jesus identified both Satan, and Cain as being their father. So why is it any secret that they would try to murder Christ, they are just like their fathers Cain and Satan.

I Chronicles 2:55; "And the families of the scribes which dwelt at Jabez [Jerusalem]; the Tirathites, the Shimeathites, and Suchathites. These are the Kenites that came of Hemath,the father of the house of Rechab.

The lineage of Rechab is not of Israel, and those men (Pharisees) standing before Jesus here are the offspring of the Rechab not Jacob or Judah. The duties of the scribes and the priests had been taken over in Babylon, some five centuries prior to Christ's birth.

This then gets into what happened in the Garden of Eden between Eve and Satan. For what came out of that sexual relationship union was a child, and not apple seeds and apples. The leaves were fig leaves, and not apple tree leaves, and Eve covered her private parts, and not a mask to cover her mouth. As Paul said, Satan wholly seduced Eve in the garden, and from that union came Cain.

Genesis 3:15 "And I [God] will put enmity between thee [Satan] and the woman [Eve]. and between thy seed [the Kenites] and her Seed [Jesus Christ]; It [Christ] shall bruise thy [Satan's] head, and thou [Satan] shalt bruise His [Christ's] heel."

Most learned "men of God" acknowledge that Genesis 3:15 is talking about the death of Jesus Christ, when He was nailed to the cross for our sins. They recognize that "seed" is referring to the children of the woman "Eve", yet somehow they just want to spiritualize everything else that happened in the Garden of Eden between Eve and the two men [Satan and Adam]. The"seed" in the Hebrew is called "Zirmah", and in the Greek it is "sperma". In the English we call it "sperm", and Strong's Hebrew Dictionary # 2233; "Posterity, carnally, child, fruitful". Friend, it simply can not be any clearer. The seed of Satan's "posterity" are the Kenites through Cain, while Adam's posterity is in Christ who is of the pure bloodline through Seth.

In Strong's Hebrew dictionary, numbered to the King James Bible; # 7014, and the word is"Kenite": "Qayan, Kah'-yin; The name of the first child, of an oriental tribe:-Cain, Kenite." Now lets take the name "Kenites" [the family], # 7017, "Qeyniy, kay-nee', a Kenite or member of the tribe of Kajin:-Kenite."

The books of Ezra and Nehemiah detail how the duties of the Levitical priests had been taken over by these Kenites [Nethinims-foreigners] from top to bottom, and their plot existed then to kill Nemehiah. It was not sucessful, for Nemehiah finally figured out who was setting the trap for Him.

When Jesus was warning our Generation of what to look out for in the end times, He compelled us to "learn the parable of the fig tree", so we would not be deceived in the later days [Matthew 24:32]. The roots of the parable are in the Garden of Eden, and they deal with the sexual affair between Eve and Satan, and out of it came a son named Cain. Cain's offspring have tried to attach themselves to the lineage of Adam, and Abraham all through the years. When you understand who these people of Hamath are, and that they are not of Abraham, Jacob, Judah or any part of Israel, then you are starting to understand the "parable of the fig tree".

If this disturbs you too much, then put this study down, for you are not intended to understand, and just go back to Buddha, Ishtar, or where ever you were that makes you feel good or gives you an emotional high. However if you desire to study deeper into this, Matthew 13 gives several parables relating to the parable of the fig tree, or [tares] and then from verses 36 to 43 Jesus explains the parables to His disciples. This is the key to understanding much of the Scriptures.

Jesus disciples came to him in private and asked Jesus to explain the parables to them, for they just didn't understand them. Lets start here with Matthew 13:35; "That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, saying, "I will open my mouth in parable; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world." These parables reveal things that are secrets that have been kept from the very foundation of the world. The explaining of the parables starts in verse 36. It is explaining the meaning of each part of His parables, that will apply to all of the parables here.

Matthew 13:36: "Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto Him, saying, "Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field."

Live Link to- The Parables of the Sower and The Tares 

Jesus declared that to us; remember that truth is what sets you free.

Matthew 13:37; "He answered and said unto them, "He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man:"

This is not a parable, but Jesus is explaining one to the disciples. 

Matthew 13:38; "The field is the world; and the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;"

Jesus is talking about this world age of the flesh. Don't spiritualize this away. We are talking about people here, the children of God's kingdom, and the children of the wicked one [Satan]. The tares are the Kenites, the children of the wicked one.

Matthew 13:39; "The enemy that soweth them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels."

When you check out what the devil soweth in Strong's Greek dictionary, it is "sperma"; the devil who is Satan deposited male sperma into mother Eve. If this is hard to take and understand that an angel, which Satan is, had sperm; go back in Genesis 6 where many angels violated God's orders and these angels [sons of God] "came to earth to take the daughters of men to be their wives." From those marriages came some form of life that the translators called "children" [Nephilim]. How do you think that those women became pregnant if the sperm was not there?

The first two sons of Eve, Cain and Abel were twins, but not of the same father. Genesis 4:2 "And she again bare his brother Abel,..." "Again" in the Hebrew text is "yacaph", in the Strong's Hebrew Dictionary, # 3254; "(to continue to do a thing)". If Eve just gave birth to Cain, and she continues on giving birth, then she is having twins. Jesus told it rightly in John 8:44 where the lust and murder in the hearts of these Kenites came from.

Matthew 13:40 "As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world."

Matthew 13:41 "The son of man shall send forth His angels, and they shall gather out of His kingdom all things the offend, and them which do iniquity:"

Matthew 13:42 "And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth."

Matthew 13:43 "Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear."

This chapter of John is the only place in God's Word that Christ taught us of these Kenites, and made it this simple. So as we discussed above, Cain was the offspring of Satan, not Adam, and Cain's offspring are called "Kenites", and we are warned to be aware of them throughout the word of God.

Are we to destroy them? Definitely not, but they are part of all the Parables, especially dealing with the end times. Truth will set you free, and you are to become wiser then the serpent, and his people. Then you will not have the problems that you would otherwise have, because you have power over them. The spiritual battle is real, and we have the victory. The Kenites are part of God's overall plan, and we are to leave them alone, until the end when He will send angels to gather them up.

Not only had the Kenites mixed with Judah when Jesus walked this earth in the flesh; But their has been some further mixing going on since then.

 You will find that: 

Much of the Bible is the story of God's plan to bring His Son Jesus Christ into this world to save our souls from His necessary destruction because we have all sinned. -/-/- To do that He needed to preserve one female descendant, of pure flesh and blood pedigree from His eighth day forming of the individual man, Adam, and his wife Eve, to eventually give human birth to His Son who would be named Jesus, who would provide the way for all of us, His children, to salvage our soul. -/-/- Concerning the individual man, Adam; the Hebrew word translated "man" in Genesis chapter 2 verse 7 is "'eth-ha adham", with the article and particle ('eth-ha), and it means "this same man, Adam". It means a specific man, not mankind in general. The creation of mankind in general is recorded in Genesis chapter 1 verse 26; the Hebrew word translated "man" in Genesis 1:26 is "adham", without the article and particle. It means mankind in general; They were created on the sixth day. -/-/- I call "'eth-ha adham", eighth day man, only because it happened after the sixth day when God created mankind, including the races and God's day of rest which was on the seventh day, as recorded in Genesis chapter 1. -/-/- This forming of this individual man, "'eth-ha adham", is recorded in Genesis chapter 2. -/-/- This is not the creation of all flesh and blood mankind as recorded in Genesis chapter 1, the Hebrew word "man" used in verse 26 is "adham", without the article and particle. -/-/- But, the story really starts millions, even billions of years before this, when God first created the souls of all of us, His children, as spirit beings with celestial bodies. He then, sometime later, created the earth for us to live on, i.e. the first earth age (the age of the dinosaurs). -/-/- Tragically 1/3 of us (our brothers) were led astray (approximately 4 1/2 billion of us), by our very charismatic religious leader, Lucifer who was a priest at that time. Lucifer, since his rebellion in that first earth age, is now called Satan. -/-/- God did, after Lucifer/Satan rebelled destroy that earth age in His fierce anger and sentenced Lucifer/Satan to die in "The Lake of Fire", i.e. TO BE NO MORE!!! (the death sentence to be carried out at the close of the Millennium, after God has used Satan to test our love for "What is Holy" (Jesus) verses "What is Profane (Satan) -/-/- God completely destroyed that first earth age with a devastating flood i.e. "Lucifer's Flood"; The ice age, the end of dinosaurs on earth, which happened during the (un)recorded gap in your Bible between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2 and Peter tell us about in 2 Peter 3:5-7. (It was a complete destruction of earth's elements, but not of the earth itself, and is described by Jeremiah in Jeremiah 4:23-26 and also in Psalms 104) This flood is not to be confused with "Noah's Flood" which happened later. -/-/- God did choose not to sentence those 4 1/2 billion of us who followed Lucifer/Satan during his rebellion, to death at that time. -/-/- Instead He devised this plan whereby our souls might still be salvaged. -/-/- He restructured the earth and decided to place us all back on it; But this time He would place us here, one at a time, in our turn, in the order of His choosing, without memory of our previous existence, in animal type (Terrestrial) bodies. His plan is to save many of our souls from spiritual death, WHICH ALSO IS TO BE NO MORE; The same punishment as Satan will receive. -/-/- God is hoping that by the example of our witnessing the permanence of the physical death of our loved ones who we can then no longer communicate with will teach each us a lesson about the permanence of death and we will therefore, see the reason why we should be anxious to accept His offer of salvation by His grace during this earth age. (Physical death is only the shadow of the real death. Real death being the destruction of our soul!!!) -/-/- The purpose of this eighth day forming of "'eth-ha adham" was to produce a female descendant of pure pedigree to give flesh and blood life (birth) to His only begotten Son Jesus the Christ who, being both "man" and "God", would, therefore qualify, through His shed blood on the cross, to become the savior of the world (the savior of the soul of, us, if we will only accept His Son Jesus, by faith, and claim His shed blood to cover our sins; If we will only have faith to believe in Him and invite Him into our heart to change it to become perfect, like Him). -/-/- God did, with His creation of mankind, as described in Genesis chapter 1 (day 6), start placing the soul of each of us back here on earth born to a flesh and blood women. That part of the story is now history; It has been accomplished; Jesus was born to a pure eighth day formed man, "'eth-ha adham" and his also formed wife Eve who are ancestors of the virgin, Mary who was born of pure "'eth-ha adham" pedigree. -/-/- Although it did require that God flood that part of the world again (Noah's Flood in the middle east) in this second earth age when only eight souls still remained, from the eighth day creation, who were of pure pedigree. (those 8 being Noah and his family) -/-/- All other souls in that part of the world, even descendants of "'eth-ha adham", were contaminated by the sexual union with and having children to Satan's fellow fallen angels (another of Satan's attempts to ruin the pure pedigree of descendants of "'eth-ha adham") and prevent God's plan to bring His Son into the world born to a descendant of pure pedigree. Satan's fallen angel's (who came to earth directly, bypassing the womb of woman), and the hybrid daughters of Eve's offspring needed to be destroyed to protect that pure eighth day creation pedigree. -/-/- Now for the second part of the story. -/-/- While all of this re-population of the earth is taking place God has had Satan locked up in heaven ever since he seduced Eve in the Garden of Eden, when she bore Cain, the father of the Kenites, (Satan's first attempt to contaminate the "'eth-ha adham" line of humans. Satan is not allowed to come to earth in person right now,(although he can still influence us spiritually). -/-/- God will in the very near future allow Satan to return to earth again, in person (passing himself off as, and claiming to be be Jesus), five months prior to the return of the real Jesus Christ, which will shortly happen and will end this flesh and blood second earth age. -/-/- God is using Satan to test those souls of all self-proclaiming Christians, to see if they really have faith in Jesus and have learned to tell the difference between, what is holy (Jesus) and what is profane (Satan) before granting any souls eternal life when this earth age ends based on their faith and trust in Jesus. -/-/- This is "The First Resurrection to Eternal Life" or if not granted then, another opportunity, during "The Millennium" when we will all, both the saved and those still liable to die (the death of our soul), be reborn back into our previous celestial bodies (you might call it 1000 years of summer school, 1000 years which will include special instruction and discipline by Jesus and those of us who have already been granted eternal life (God's Elect) ). -/-/- After "THE MILLENNIUM", those not already saved, at Christ's return, will be judged at the "Great White Throne of Judgment" based on their works during those 1000 years. If found worthy they also will be granted eternal life. This is "The Second Resurrection" to eternal life. Or if they are still found not worthy, sentenced to eternal death in "The Lake of Fire". (The death of their soul, to perish just like Satan's soul will perish, and BE NO MORE! -/-/- God, in the Bible, calls this the second death!) -/-/- Read and study your Bible! -/-/- YOU NEED TO KNOW THESE THINGS!!!; THIS STORY WHICH GOD TOLD US ALL ABOUT THROUGH HIS PROPHETS and had recorded for our study and understanding in both TESTAMENTS, THE OLD and THE NEW! -/-/- The time frame when this will all happen and the details about the two resurrections to eternal life and "The Great White Throne of Judgment" and the basis for those decisions!

Jeremiah vision 
If we look at Jeremiah's vision of the earth (Jer. 4:23-26) it was without form and void; and had no light and the mountains trembled and the hills moved. And there were no men and all the birds were gone. He said the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities were broken down because of the Lord's anger. He must have seen the earth as it is described in Gen. 1:2  and as Peter described it in 2 Peter 3: 6  because the earth has never been empty and waste and dark since the six days of God's activity as described in Gen. 1:3 to 2:25. The only time the sun and stars were not allowed to give light was the period before the six days. They have been giving light ever since. There never has been a time or will be a time when there were no men on earth since then. Yet Jeremiah said all the cities were gone and no men were there.
How can this be? 
What was happening on earth between (Gen. 1:1), Isaiah's vision of the inhabited earth or (2 Peter 3:5 Peter's description of the earth standing out of the water and; (Gen. 1:2) Jeremiah's vision of the flooded, empty and void earth or (2 Peter 3:6) Peter's overflowed earth?

 Pastor,
I challenge you to prepare and preach a sermon on two verses of the Bible. "Acts 26: 6-7."    You pray.  A voice in your mind says,  ‘Do not fear.  Put on my armor.  Feed my sheep.  Tell my people the truth.’
 
Live Link to- Acts 26:6-7 
Then slowly and  reluctantly, but with courageous resolve, you prepare a sermon on verses six and seven of the twenty-sixth chapter of the Book of Acts. 

It is only a remnant of the ancient "House of Judah", Judahiats and Benjaminites, that were left out af all twelve tribes of ancient Israelites, for Nebuchadnezzar to take to Babylon in 586BC.
These are
the "Good Figs" who along with the "Bad Figs", (descendants of Cain). "The Strangers",  the Bible calls them, who have mixed in with them, that today make up the population of the little country in the middle east we today call Israel..

Ref. Scripture 2 Kings 19:4 ..., lift up thy prayer for the remnant who are left.  

2
Kings 19:4  It may be the LORD thy God will hear all the words of Rabshakeh, whom the king of Assyria his master hath sent to reproach the living God; and will reprove the words which the LORD thy God hath heard: wherefore lift up thy prayer for the remnant that are left.

Question - Where are the bulk of the people from the ancient House of Judah?
Answer - Most of the Judahiats and Banjaminites from the House of Judah are scattered throughout Europe and the Americas, along with the House of Israel which Assyria carried away 150 years earlier.

Remember: These are all Israelites, descendants of Jacob/Israel from the eighth day forming of the individual man 'eth-'Ha'adam Adam and  his help meet Eve; They are not Jews!

 
 This is John:
 
What I call "EIGHTH DAY MAN" is the forming of the individual person named Adam, and his help meet Eve,  as described in Genesis 2:7. In Heb. 'eth-'Ha'adam   (with Art. and Particle) ="this same individual man, Adam" (the human grandparents of Jesus Christ).

What I call "SIXTH DAY MAN" is the creation of mankind, man and wife, as described in Genesis 1:28. In Heb. 'adam   (with no Art) ="mankind" (including the races).
The Israelites referred to above are the ancestors of  the people who today make up the Christian nations of Europe and the Americas in our 21st. century world (they are the Israelites from the ancient kingdom of the "House of Israel" plus most of the people, also Israelites, from the ancient "House of Judah" who were taken captive by the Assyrians and removed from their lands during the 7th and 8th centuries B.C.).  While that small remnant of Judahiats and Banjaminites from the ancient "House of Judah" (from Jerusalem proper) who remained in Jerusalem, only to 135 years later be carried off in to Babylon by Nebuchadnezzor, returned to Jerusalem at the end of their Babylonian captivity, after having mixed with Kenites (descendants of Cain), are the people we today call Jews. This all happened before any one in the Bible was referred to as a Jew! In fact Jesus made it clear in John chapter eight verse forty four, that the grand-father of those Kenite Pharisees, who mixed with those Judahiats and Banjaminites, then claiming to be Jews, descendants of Judah, (but are not, as we are told in Revelation 2:9 and 3:9) was Satan, from his sexual encounter with Eve in the "Garden of Eden", whereby she bore Cain, her first son, the twin brother of Abel, whose father was Adam. 


Additional relevant scripture. 2 Kings 18:9-13 2 Kings 18:9  And it came to pass in the fourth year of king Hezekiah, which was the seventh year of Hoshea son of Elah king of Israel, that Shalmaneser king of Assyria came up against Samaria, and besieged it.
10  And at the end of three years they took it: even in the sixth year of Hezekiah, that is the ninth year of Hoshea king of Israel, Samaria was taken.
11  And the king of Assyria did carry away Israel unto Assyria, and put them in Halah and in Habor by the river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes:
12  Because they obeyed not the voice of the LORD their God, but transgressed his covenant, and all that Moses the servant of the LORD commanded, and would not hear them, nor do them.
13  Now in the fourteenth year of king Hezekiah did Sennacherib king of Assyria come up against all the fenced cities of Judah, and took them.

Note: The majority of the Judahaits and Benjaminites were taken away by Sennacherib of the Assyrians not the Babylonians(see verse 13 above) It wasn't until 140 years later that the remaining residents of the ancient House of Judah, a remnant, were taken captive by the Babylonians.  It was this remnant of the House of Judah and their descendants (although by this time mixed with Kenites)  who were preserved to set the stage in the Holy Land for the coming of Christ the Messiah; But, Christ was born to a descendant who remained of pure Judahait pedigree. (Mary)

Note: James addresses his epistle to all twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, verifying the dispersion of much of the two tribes "The House of Judah" along with the 10 tribes of the "The House of Israel".

James 1:1  James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.

See pamphlets #1064 and #1020. From 745-721 B.C., all ten tribes of the House of Israel along with most of the House of Judah were taken captive and driven by the Assyrians into the Caucasus region between the Black and Caspian Seas. The remnant that was left in Judea of the "House of Judah" was then taken to Babylon during the conquering of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzor in 586BC, 135 years after their brothern of the House of Israel and the House of Judah were captured by their Assyrian conquerors!

My advice to you is to read them over carefully, with a open mind.  Then check everything you read against Scripture, prayerfully with the guidance of the Holy Spirit.  Check Scripture against Scripture. If it checks out, even though it is not what you have previously been taught or believe, accept it as truth and discard what you previously believed. Remember, Scripture never contradicts Scripture.

First, however, we must make sure we study His Word and know the difference between that which is holy and that which is profane in order that we can discern between the clean and the unclean Or else, how can we teach others?

#13. That, Christ later revealed to John, the disciple Jesus loved, what will happen in the future. John then wrote the book of Revelation, the name of which means to "Disclose", to "Unveil", to "Reveal", i.e. to make known. The Greek word for "revelation" is apokalupsi (Strong's #602) which comes from apokalupto (#601) and more specifically means to "Take the Cover Off". John wrote these words that Jesus revealed to him from the isles of Patmos, where he was imprisoned for teaching the Word of God in approximately 96 A.D. But as we will find in verse 10 of Revelation chapter 1, John was taken to, and wrote from, the perspective of the time of the end, and even beyond into the millennium. The reason John writes, that these things must "shortly come to pass" is because he is not writing from the perspective of 96 A.D. He was spiritually taken to the future and wrote from there.

Jesus reveals 'these beasts" to John in the book of Revelation:

In chapters 2 and 3 Jesus Christ has something to say to the seven churches which is to to all the churches of TODAY, not 96 A.D., and some of it isn't very pretty. Remember we read in chapter one verse three that this is prophecy, it's for today.Again, John was taken to the future when he writes about our churches in the 2000s. They are present and accounted for. They are described by that which they teach and only two of the seven are found to be in good standing. If you find you are aligned with one of the other five, then it is time to switch churches, don't you think? When you read what Jesus had to say in 2;9 and 3:9 keep the following file in mind.

In chapter 6  John, when taken to heaven in the spirit, was witness to the "unsealing" of the scroll, the written (vs. 5:1) Word of God, by the only One found worthy in both heaven and earth, the One who prevailed at Calvary, the Lamb of God, the Living Word Himself, Jesus the Christ. John writes what he saw and heard when Jesus broke the seals of the scroll. Remember, Jesus' disciples came unto Him in Matthew 24 and Mark 13 and ASKED Him to REVEAL to them the signs when all these prophecies would come to pass and He would return to establish His kingdom (the Day of the Lord). The seals reveal and are signs of what it's to be like just prior to the Lord's second advent.

The detail which He gives us sometimes seems overwhelming, but it is greatly appreciated by those who seek to know all the things that He has foretold us, and He has foretold us all things. But not so fast, we haven't seen the seventh seal yet! Be patient, it's right here in Revelation chapter 8, just ahead of the Trumpets.
#13. The first beast has risen continued
In chapter 8 as John writes his account of Jesus' revelation, the signs have been given, the angels are ready, everything is set to go with the famous 7 Trumpets of Revelation. What are trumpets and how are they used anyway? Well, trumpets are loud horns and militarily speaking, when the trumpets blow, the troops begin to move into position to do battle, and then the final charge is sounded by the final Trump. If you are a student of God's Word, and if you understand the 7 Seals which we've just covered, then these trumpets will make a lot of sense. If not, I hope you like scary movies!
#13. The first beast has risen continued
I suppose we could "sum up" the Seals in just a few words: They are to understand the powers and dark forces of the Four Hidden Dynasties (the 1st 4 Seals), what happen(s)(ed) to those who teach the true Word of God and confront the rider of the horses and the worldwide testimony of God's elect soon to be delivered up (5th), to understand the Two Tribulations and the work (sealing) that must take place before the four winds blow (6th), and to understand the parable of the fig tree and the season when all these things come to pass (7th).

If you understand those 7 Seals, revealed to you by Jesus Christ, then you have eyes to see and ears to hear, and the scroll, His Word, will unroll before your eyes and you can read with understanding the marvelous mysteries of our God. There is nothing like it in the entire universe! It will turn your heart to Him with such love that you cannot contain it. Live Link to-

In chapter 14 we saw what was happening on earth at Christ's return. Now In chapter 15 we are going to see what is happening from the vantage point of heaven. John now looks and sees yet another PICTURE, a sign, a supernatural wonder in heaven. He SEES seven angels who have the seven last plagues containing the wrath of God to be poured out upon the earth on that Day of Vengeance by the King of kings and Lord of lords.

#13. The first beast has risen continued
In chapter 16 we also find the 7 Vials which contain the "wrath of God". If you have studied with us through the 7 Seals and the 7 Trumpets then you will have no difficulty whatsoever with the 7 Vials, for you will see that they are exactly the same as the 7 Trumpets and are exactly in the same order. The Vials are simply the effect of what the events of the 7 Trumpets will have on those who (in the end) had the mark of the beast and "are worshipping" his image, i.e. those who are deceived and worship Satan as Jesus. Many professing Christians of today, the early 2000s, I'm afraid, are included in this group! [Why? Read on!]

#13. The first beast has risen continued
In chapter 16 we saw the 7 Vials containing the wrath of God poured out upon those who had the mark of the beast in their foreheads (minds) and who worshipped Satan, the false messiah, as Jesus Christ. We will now see one of those 7 angels who poured out the vials come and give us a "close up" view of the judgment of the "Great Whore". Maybe we should update the terminology a little and call her the "Great Slut" because the Holy Spirit wants us to get a real good PICTURE of exactly how He looks upon the false religious system that spews forth from that great city where the "son of perdition" will sit claiming that he is God (2 Thes. 2). Also, be it known that our Father deals in reality, so if the terminology used here is offensive then one can always go to a church where they only teach nice things like cute little bunny rabbits and Ishtar eggs, real Biblical gems. As the apostle Paul documents in 2 Thes. 2:3, there's a Great Apostasy about to be born and this Great Whore in Rev. chapter 17 will be its mother and give it birth.

And so it is that we are reading, in chapter 18 of Revelation, the advanced news report about the fall of Babylon the great. We read of the lament of her lovers over her demise. There will be no more flickering light trying to imitate the real light of truth. It's over. We have studied in this Book of Revelation that the beast, Satan, "sets up" his image, i.e. that he is Jesus, and the people who go to church will hear the sound of the music and sing praises to the one sitting in the temple claiming to be God. (They know not that he is the son of perdition). Yes, they will kneel to and worship Satan, who will appear in the image of Christ.

#13. The first beast has risen continued
If you've studied, i.e. read with understanding, the entire Bible from the beginning, from Genesis on, line by line then you will completely understand this chapter 19, for as we said earlier, there is nothing really new in the Book of Revelation that hasn't been discussed before in God's Word. It's just that in this Book of the Unveiling, this PICTURE BOOK, prophecy is all tied together and simplified for our understanding.

Therefore the rest of the words and phrases in this study, such as Lamb, Word of God, Kings of kings and Lord of lords, etc., are found previously in God's Word.
#13. The first beast has risen continued
The point is that if a person were to pick up the book of Revelation and try to read and understand it without the foundation from the Word, you just can't imagine what kind of scenarios they would come up with. On second thought, you've probably seen some of the wild and crazy interpretations of this book. I actually heard one nationally televised preacher tell the viewers that there are going to come "huge locusts, down out of the sky, the size of horses, with stingers in their tails, and when they sting you it will hurt for 5 months".
#13. The first beast has risen continued
Confusion, confusion! And it all comes from not studying the Word of God!  And so it is written that the time is fast approaching when the whole world will be confused about who the true Christ is. Will you? Not if you are sealed with His Word in your forehead.
#13. The first beast has risen continued
After seeing the fall of "Babylon the great" John hears much rejoicing in heaven. "Alleluia" is the Greek word for the Hebrew word "Hallelujah" which means "Praise ye Jah" or "Praise the Lord". "Jah" or "Yah" is God's name. So now when someone asks you if you speak any Hebrew say "Yes, Hallelujah".
#13. The first beast has risen continued
Man's Religion is the Temple, Jesus Christ will destroy when He returns.
Matthew 24:1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. [2] And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. [3] And as He sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
Jesus will take the entire remainder of chapter 24 and give a precise, detailed answer to this compound question about the signs and the end. Here is His first response:
Matthew 24:4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. [5] For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
Yes! Many Christian ministers will come and say, "Jesus, is the Christ: then turn right around and teach you traditions that promote the church instead of God's Word!

Let's "measure the temple of God" like John was ask to do in Rev.11:1!
Rev. 11:1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship in it.
Remember when John was told to do this he was first taken spiritually into the future (Rev. 1:10)  to "The Lord's Day", i.e. the Millennium which in this year of our Lord, 2011, is very close a hand.We'll explore what many churches and their leaders teach compared to what the Bible really says.

#14. That, at the sixth trump Satan will return to earth claiming he is Christ. Make Sure You Know He's Not Christ. Then Christ will return at the seventh trump. Many of us will believe Satan is indeed Christ and worship him as if he is Christ.Woe to us!

Matthew 24:27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

This is the 7th and last Trump.So, if you wait until you hear the thunders, it's too late, it's all over, including the shouting!
Rev. 10:4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.
Actually, why bother writing them down? If the lighting has already struck then the thunders are simply the history of what has already happened. We've already been given the prophecies of all that will occur to this final generation BEFORE it happens, and if we aren't prepared for the lighting to strike, if we don't have the lightning rod of truth firmly grounded in our minds, by the time we hear the thunder our house will be GONE!
[5] And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
He's about to give the final benediction of this flesh age.
[6] And 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,that there should be time no longer:

We come now to the 20th chapter of Revelation at which point the 7th Trump has sounded and the true Jesus Christ has returned with great power and glory, bringing with Him His army of saints. Babylon the Great, i.e. the one world political system and the great whore along with Satan's role as the false-christ, the spurious messiah, has been destroyed forever and ever. And as we learned in our chapter 19, ALL flesh has been "changed" and everyone, both the good and the bad are in their spiritual bodies.

The American Wisdom Series 

Presents  A GOOD HOME COMMUNION SERVICE:  

I Corinthians 11:23 "For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which He was betrayed took bread;"

This then is the Passover service, for Christ became our "Passover". Communion is the Passover, and it is done in remembrance of our Lord's sacrifice on the Cross. Jesus Christ paid the price for one and all times so that you and I could partake of the Holy Communion. This is the most reverent moment in all Christianity, and it is done so that all Christians will take of the cup and the bread for the sake of keeping focused on the shed blood and stripes that Jesus took for our sins. It is the most precious moment of our worship.

Keep yourself covered because of the angels. If you are part of the bride of Christ then this is directed to you. Our veil is Jesus Christ. You will be held accountable as to how you treat the Lord's table and those precious things that are part of our Lord's table.

When you take on the blood of Christ you take on the veil, which causes the death angel Satan to pass over you. Satan will pass over you, your house, and over your family members if they too trust in Christ. When we have the veil of Christ over us we then receive the blessings of Almighty God.

I Corinthians 11:24 "And when He had given thanks, He brake it, and said, "Take, eat, this is My body, which is broken for you:  this do in remembrance of Me."

Jesus Christ's body received the stripes, and we receive the healing. If you ever want to take Communion at home, this is the chapter that we are to remember, and read for this important time. Read these Scriptures from the twenty third verse on, and partake of the bread and the cup in Jesus name. This makes a good home Communion. That healing is just as sure today as it was in Jesus day, and we do it all "in remembrance of Him".

I Corinthians 11:25 "After the same manner also He took the cup, when He had supped, saying, "This cup is the new testament in My blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of Me."

Jesus took the wine cup and stated exactly what the purpose the Communion cup was for. The purpose of taking the wine cup and drinking it, was to remember the shed blood of Christ that was given at the cross of Calvary. We do it as a symbol, that in remembrance of that wine reminds us of the blood, and when we repent it brings forgiveness for our sins, for we are sinners. But we are to take the cup with our mind focused reverently and honestly set upon Christ the only perfect blood that ever walked the earth in the flesh.

It is our Father's love toward us that He himself paid the price for us, so that we would have forgiveness for our sins. So that we ourselves could enter back into the realm of God's perfection. We take on Christ's perfection, when our sins are laid on Him at our repentance. That is why it is absolutely required that our prayers are offered in "Jesus' name", for there is no other name under heaven whereby we can be saved and approach the throne of God.

I Corinthians 11:26 "For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do show the Lord's death till He come.""

Every time that you take the cup and eat of the bread from the Communion table you are showing both God and man that you believe that Jesus Christ accomplished this at the cross. He paid the price for our sins. He took the stripes and we receive the healing and his perfect blood was shed in sacrifice for our sins. He did it all for us and he had not one complaint. He shed the blood to bring forgiveness for our sins.

This is the only reason that you take the Communion, and the Communion is the Passover, for Christ became our Passover when His blood was shed. That precious blood of Christ must be placed over the door posts of our hearts or minds, and the death angel Satan will pass over you. It is the veil, that you place over your head, which is your mind for your protection. It will protect us even in our generation after Satan and his angels are here on earth in person.

Satan is called the death angel, not because he has any power to put you to death, but only because if you worship him, instead of waiting for Christ, when he comes to earth claiming he is Christ, it may well result in the death of your soul on judgment day. In that respect he may cause the death of your soul because after the "Millennium", if you haven't learned, by then to tell the difference between what is HOLY (Christ Jesus) and what is PROFANE (Satan), God will judge you guilty at "The Great White Throne of Judgment" and God will put your soul to death just as He does Satan's soul in the "Lake of Fire". (TO BE NO MORE!) You won't even be remembered by anyone throughout eternity. 

Remember back in Daniel 9:27 where Daniel wrote, "and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease,..."? The "sacrifice and the oblation" that will end in most church houses is the Communion, and it will end because they will think that the True Christ has come. In ignorance their traditions and their church systems will tell them that Jesus Christ is here, and that the Communion is no longer necessary.

They will have bought Satan's lie, and they will follow Satan when he commits the "abomination of desolation", by this desolator, and calls himself God.

If you have bought into Satan's lie you will also stop the Communion at that time. Remember, and this is important, you will not see the True Christ while you are still in your flesh body, so if someone tells you to stop taking Communion, and you are still in your flesh, then be aware. Keep right on taking of the table of the Lord as long as you are in this flesh and blood body Why?. Because when the real Jesus Christ returns you will instantly, in the blink of an eye be changed into a spirit being with a perfect spiritual body, No more flesh and blood! 

So Paul is warning us that we should not partake of the table of the Lord in a irresponsible manner, for we take it to remember the Lord's death. To remember the "crucifixion" which includes the when, what, where and why for the death of our Lord. Each of these points are important to our knowledge. For to teach Christ crucified, all four of these things must come forth, or you have not given the full story.

The Kenites, descendants of Cain,  who have mixed in with Judah/Jews brought about Christ's crucifixion, and it happened in Jerusalem, where it was prophesied many years prior.

Genesis 3:15 "And I [God} will put enmity between thee [Satan] and the woman [Eve], and between thy seed [the Kenites] and her Seed [Jesus Christ]; It [Christ] shall bruise thy [Satan's] head, and thou [Satan] shalt bruise His [Christ's] heel."

Eve's Seed is Jesus Christ, while Satan's seed are the children, to the last generation, called the "Kenites. When we take the word "seed back to the Strong's Hebrew dictionary it is # 2233; "zirmah" and in the Greek that is called "sperma". We call that in the English "sperm" and it is the "Posterity, carnally, child, fruitful." We know from Luke 3:23 to 38 that Jesus was of the lineage or blood line of Eve. Adams posterity is through Seth, and Satan's posterity is through "Cain". The Kenites are of the seed of Cain, who is the physical son of Satan.

John 8:44 "Ye [the Jewish Kenites] are of your father the devil, and the lust of your father ye will do. He [Cain] was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he [Satan] speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he [Satan] is a liar, and the father of lies."

Two things to point out here about this verse, #1. is that Satan the devil is the father of lies, and #2. is that the first Murderer is Cain, who is the offspring or seed of Satan through Eve. It is the offspring of Cain which are the Kenites that "bruised Christ's heel" on the cross, and not the offspring of Israel through his son Judah [the real Jews]. In the Kenites own ignorance they sealed their own destruction when they crucified Jesus. Had they not murdered Christ on the cross, the price for sin would not have been paid, and it is all in the perfect plan of God.

The death took place on the exact moment that God prophesied it would from the book of Daniel. Seventy times seven weeks of years, minus one week, to the exact day; four hundred and ninety years minus seven, from the time of Nehemiah's return to build the streets and walls of Jerusalem, the price was paid.

The "why" is the most important part of the crucifixion, for we all know that we fall short of God's standards because we are weak within our selves. But when by the Holy Spirit we take Christ into ourselves, we become strong. Through the shed blood of Christ we have that way to salvation, back to fellowship with the Father. When we are part of the body of Christ, we become royalty of the very throne of God. Then God takes our life and molds us all over again into an active and helpful child of the living God. This is what the real meaning of Passover is. A renewing of our mind in remembrance of Christ.

Our remembrance of the nails being driven into his hands and feet as he was nailed  to the cross, as they placed that crown of thorns on Jesus' head and the blood flowed down his head. You can see the scorn that the Kenite/Jews shouted at Him as he hung on that cross. Then while He hung there he taught the twenty second Psalm to those around watching, and the Roman guard approached and ran that spear through His side and into his heart. My fellow Christian, this is what our remembrance is all about. It is our thoughts, of the life that was drained from Christ physical body, and those scars on Jesus' Body were taken for our sins, and this is what we are to focus on when we take of the bread at Communion. When we draw that cup of wine to our mouth, it is in remembrance of His precious blood that flowed from the crown of thorns on His head, and blood that dripped from His side when that spear pierced through Him. 

 It is the sacrifice that Christ gave that we are to remember at the table of the Lord, and any other use of The Lord's table is to take of that table "unworthily".

I Corinthians 11:27 "Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord UNWORTHILY shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord."

The bread is the bread that is set aside for Communion, and the cup is the wine that is to be taken at the table of the Lord. It is the cup that signifies the blood of the Lord, we are to drink only at the table of the Lord. That cup brings forgiveness for your sins and makes you a new creature.

Most churches  misinterpret this and say that "you have to examine yourself to see if you are worthy of taking of the table of the Lord", and they are on very dangerous ground. If you or any man waits until you/they are perfect to receive the bread and cup of the Lord, then no one would ever take of that table, for there is no one worthy. The word here is "UNWORTHILY", and it is the condition of your mind; You are not the subject nor the object of the taking of the Communion.

Christ is the one that is perfect and it is to examine His perfection that makes you worthy of taking of the cup. Why would anyone that did not believe in the crucifixion want to take of the cup anyway?

I Corinthians 11:28 "But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup."

Paul is asking you personally, what are you thinking about when you are partaking of the cup and eating of the bread of the Lord's table? 

Examine yourself and see what your motives are when you take that cup to your lips. If your remembrance does not go back to the cross and the price that was paid there, then don't partake of the Holy Communion. If you can't remember those events that surround the crucifixion, then examine yourself for what is in your mind. If your mind is not completely on the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ, than don't take that cup. That is the only thing that matters.

I Corinthians 11:29 "For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body."

If your mind is not in that remembrance mode, then you are drinking to your own damnation. Did you get what the subject here is "not discerning the Lord's body". You had better not be thinking about those sins that you have committed; Your entire focus better be on the Lord's Body which was crucified for your sins. 

It is Jesus Christ that was able to make the sacrifice for the sins of those that would repent. Get your mind off those traditions of men, that most churches like to draw you to when you partake of the table of the Lord, and onto the only place that God says is worth of consideration at this time. Examine yourself!  What is in your mind and thoughts before you go to the table of the Lord.

I Corinthians 11:30 "For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep."

To "Sleep" is to be spiritually dead, and many are spiritually weak and sickly because they do not partake of the True Bread, which is Jesus Christ. It is through His stripes that we are healed; they play church instead of concentrating on the one focal point, Jesus, the One who was pure. It is through Christ that God's love will pour into your soul, and fill your being. This is the one time to realize, that you don't play Christian, for you either are, or you are not.

Those that do not understand the covering of the head that Paul is talking about, are spiritually dead. Jesus Christ is our covering.

I Corinthians 11:31 "For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged."

Can you truly judge yourself? The problem is that we always tend to show leniency towards ourselves when it comes time to judge ourselves. We let a lot of things that God hates fall through the cracks, and overlook many of our shortcomings. A man simply can't judge himself. If you are wanting to judge yourself perfect before you take communion, then forget it. You will never be ready, because there will always be something that will hinder your perfection. But, when you consider the body of Christ, you had better know that Christ was worthy!, if you take of the cup.

Only God can judge man and he knows your heart and what is in your mind. This is why we must repent, and then focus on the cross of Christ. Then you are forgiven of your sins, and you are ready to take of the table of the Lord.

I Corinthians 11:32 "But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world."

When we are in Christ and we do wrong, then expect that God will make the corrections in our life. When God does the correcting it is just, and not as the justice that this world gives. If you are a servant of God, expect to be tested by God, for in the testing we get our strength. God loves His children and He does not want his children to be destroyed when the rest of the world is destroyed. 

I Corinthians 11:33 "Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another."

Paul is urging the Corinthians and you and me, that when we come together to partake of the table of the Lord, do it right.


Having covered all of that, lets now take communion.

Let's pray giving thanks to our Lord for becoming our passover when He shed His perfect blood at the cross, paying the price for our sins.

I Corinthians 11:24 "And when He had given thanks, He brake it, and said, "Take, eat, this is My body, which is broken for you:  this do in remembrance of Me."

I Corinthians 11:25 "After the same manner also He took the cup, when He had supped, saying, "This cup is the new testament in My blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of Me."

I Corinthians 11:26 "For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do show the Lord's death till He come.""

Thank you Lord. We'll remember to be watching for the spurious messiah who will first come to earth claiming to be you. We will endure until the end, waiting patiently for your return and we will not be deceived into worshiping Satan in ignorance, for we know that at your return we will instantly be changed from our flesh and blood bodies into our spiritual bodies.


Live Link to->>"The Hand of Hope" And we here in American murder approximately one million of these little human beings each year before they are born. The little human beings God placed in the womb at conception. We, the same people who put a young girl in prison for life if she does any thing, we think, caused the death of her baby after it's birth; But have decided, by law (Roe V. Wade), it is OK, as long as it is done before it is born. Oh! We argue about first, second, or third trimesters.  What difference does that make? When your human life is ended, it's over!!!!!!
