Pamphlet #6213 Genesis KC 4-3

Do you suppose that you look like yourself?
As you did before you were born in the flesh?
So let's go back just before God creates mankind.

To whom is God 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, while still in your  angelic form?

I'll bet you do!
Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. (Both boys and girls)

On the sixth day God created mankind "Adham", the different races,  the ethnos.
And He created them male and female!
Was this before "'eth ha Adham" and his wife Eve were formed?
Yes it was! This was only the sixth day.
The man we call Adam was formed on the eighth day and we haven't gotten there yet. (I call it the eighth day only because it is described in chapter 2 after God's day of rest.)
So hang in there!

However, you now know the answer to a question that often puzzles ministers and even scholars,

"When Cain was sent forth into the land of Nod, it says he took a wife.
Where in the world did she come from?"

The answer is simple, she was of the sixth day creation.

[Genesis 1:28] 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. 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 must align or conform 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! 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? We will find out in a few lessons. [Genesis 1:28] 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. All that which is necessary to sustain life has been provided by the Creator. Is He good to us, or what?  [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.
Now that we are reading the scriptures much more closely than we used to, we notice that this creation of mankind, of the races,
was not just pronounced "good", it was pronounced "very good". And so, we learn from God's Word that mankind did not evolve from organic slime pits, nor did one precious race evolve from the other. Our Father created them all, male and female, and loves them all very, very much. After all, they are His children.However, in this "politically correct" environment in which we now find common sense turned "tohu va bohu", you can be sure that God fits the liberal definitions of "racist" and "sexist", that is if you can find a liberal who admits that God is not dead. We will soon see God resting for a day (How long would that be anyway?). Then on another day, after the "Day of Rest" we shall meet the great, great, great, great, great, great,great, great great..... grandparents of Jesus Christ.

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
