Presents the Tell it like it is! series of studies:


This is Pamphlet #9002, Study #2 in our series. Much of it taken from otgenesis2, 
The truth about:

"The creation of eighth day man, the grandparents of Jesus Christ."
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 "Drake'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 only guiding light. Sincerely, John Rhine

Revelation 2:17  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

John 15:26
But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

John 16:13-14
[13] Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. [14] He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

Without the leading by the Holy Spirit, there is no understanding of the truths, for all the truth of the Scriptures are revealed to us by God's Spirit.

 Now here is our revised study of: Christopherson's Genesis 2.

"The creation of eighth day man, the grandparents of Jesus Christ."

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

 The "hosts" are the masses of people, in waiting to be to be re-created in flesh and blood bodies, whether it was on the sixth day (the races), and their offspring, as each race multiplied "after their kind"; or not until the eighth day (the race Christ will be born into). "Hosts" in the Hebrew text, is given as "tsaba", which shows a binding unity within each group or race, such as organizing for war. In the Strong's Hebrew dictionary it is # 6635, it comes from the root meaning "to assemble to perform".

Each of these souls or people (us), having been created, God only knows how long ago, as spirit beings with celestial bodies, now stood ready, and many still do, to pass through this earth age in animal like terrestrial bodies. 

Each soul having the free will to choose light, or darkness (some of us made that choice in the first earth age, some of us in this earth age). But, all of us will make a choice, one way or another.

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."

When God rested on the seventh day, all forms of plant and animal life were in existence, and mankind was the last in the sixth day creative process of God.

Editor's Note: I do not believe the above statement is 100% correct. I don't think all plant life placed in the garden for eighth day man (Adam) was in existence at that time and I know God created farm animals for Adam after He created him on the eighth day.

In ancient writings from the second century A.D., translated from [Sanhedrin viii, 7]; "Why was man created last? That the heretics might not say there was a companion with Him in the work, i.e., that man should not have claim to share with Him."

  American Wisdom Series Editor's Note: i don't buy that. What about verse 26 in chapter 1? God was working with at least one of us in our former angelic form! Genesis 1:26 "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." I personally don't think it makes a difference what man might claim. He made us to look like ourselves and obviously He ask us to help Him. And God said, "Let Us make man"... He ask us to, and we did help! (NOT FLESH MAN, BUT RATHER MAN AS WE EXISTED IN THE FIRST EARTH AGE!
John again: All sixth day mankind was doing what God ask them to do, in Genesis 1:28, during this 1000 year seventh day while God rested. We were replenishing the earth's population.  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, ad over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth."
The work was finished on the sixth day, and all activity of God's creative efforts stopped on the seventh day. God rested from all the work involving the universe.

Genesis 2:3 "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."

Special note from the author: All the rejuvenation that took place was finished. Though the so-called "higher critics" say there is a change in authorship from the "P" to the "J" manuscripts, because we are using our commentary from Ezra and Nehemiah's "Massoretic text" manuscripts of Dr C. D. Ginsburg, there should be no conflict in the continuation of thought between the first and second chapters of Genesis. Both chapters come from the same source, and not separate authorships written years apart.

Genesis 2:4 "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,"

Genesis 2:5 "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."

It is clearly understood that the fish, the fowl, all the wild animals of every kind are created, and living on earth. All races of mankind have also been created, and multiplying also, except the Adamic [white] race. With all this life, God is stating that there still is "no man to till the ground"; to be a farmer.

Genesis 2:6 "But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground."

This "mist" is the morning dew that watered the earth.

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."

The word "formed" is used [molded as clay] to describe the making of Adam. When man was formed he became a living creature. In the Hebrew it is "eth-ha-adham", which refers to the particular person "Adam", (not a generic form for man)

The "Ha-Adham" [Adam] is the man that Christ will come forth through.

Matthew 1:1-17, and Luke 3:23-38 both give us our documentation that this is true and did come to pass. Paul states in I Corinthians 15:21-23 that sin came into the world by the first Adam, but by the second Adam [Christ} all shall be made alive. Christ is the first fruits [to come out of the grave to everlasting life], and then "they that are Christ's at His coming". There was death by the first Adam, and salvation by Christ Himself.

Genesis 2:8 "(And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there He put the man whom He had formed."

In this "Eden" which God had formed, He put "eth-ha adham" [not any man, but "the Adam"]. This is the man "Adam" formed from clay in Genesis 2:7, and not the "male and female" of the races of the sixth day creation of Genesis 1:27-28. Eden is a special place that God made, following the seventh day of rest, for a special man called Adam.

God first created the wilderness, then the creatures, followed by male and female of all races; 

and then He rested.

This Adam is of the eighth day creation,
when God formed the individual man Adam.

Note: I call this  Eighth day creation only because it happened after God's seventh day of rest.

 and we will see that when Cain went to the wilderness, he married into the sixth day creation's offspring.

Genesis 2:9 "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."

This "Garden of Eden" is a special place other then the
 fields and plant life of the six days of creation.

It may have been a special planting, and when sin entered into the garden of Eden, the plant life as well as Adam were lost.

There are two trees mentioned here in the midst of the garden. They were the "Tree of Life", which is Christ, and the "tree of the knowledge of good and evil", which is Satan. The "Tree of Life" was taken away from man when he was cast from the garden, and that "Tree of Life" is Christ in His saving role. In Revelation 22:2-4 we see when He shall be given back to man, in that eternal city.

The 'tree of the knowledge of good and evil" is addressed in Ezekiel 31, this is where it identifies this tree in Eden as Satan. Are we talking about trees or men? The trees are symbols used for men throughout the Bible.

See Live Link to- Pamphlet #7027    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 so you can also "See Men as Trees Walking"

Genesis 2:10 "And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads."

Genesis 2:11 "The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;"

"Pison" is a river west of the Euphrates, called "Pallukat", in the region of Nabonidos, or the Pallakopas Canal". The river Pallukat [or Pison] encircled the northern borders of the great Sandy desert, which stretched westward to the Mountain chain of Midian and the Siani.

"Havilah" then is the region of the sand, as recorded in Genesis 25:18. "Shur" would be the border on the east end of "Havilah".

Genesis 2:12 "And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone."

Genesis 2:13 "And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia."

"Gihon" is a river east of the Tigris. The supplier to the river is the modern "Kerkhah", and in ancient times, "Khoases"; rising in the Mountains of Kassi. "Kas" has long been confused in the Hebrew with "Cush". It is not in the land of Cush, or Ethiopia of Aftica, but the acadian "Kas".

Genesis 2:14 "And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goes toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates."

The "Hiddekel" is the accadian name for the "Tigrus" river, which was called "Idiqla", and means "encircling". The Assyria of this verse is not the country of Assyria that overthrew the old "House of Israel, but comes from the Hebrew name "Hashshur" [Asshur], a primative city destroyed centuries prior to Abraham's time."

The river "Euphrates" gets its name from the Greeks, during the reign of Alexander the Great, in the fourth century before Christ. It's original name was "Ufratu", from the old Persians. This is why most people fix the original garden of Eden in Iraq.

Genesis 2:15 "And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.)"

Notice that God didn't"t take just any of His creation's, but "Ha-Adham", the man Adam, to take care of the garden of Eden.

Genesis 2:16 "And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, "of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:"

  American Wisdom Series Editor's Note: All of Christianity seems to believe their were only two trees, as in spirit beings, in the Garden. One being Christ the other being Satan. No, I'll take that back. Christianity today teaches that the tree of the knowledge of good and evil was actually a snake. How silly can you get! Satan must be chuckling over that one, as he says to one of his fellow fallen angels, "They actually believe that. I didn't think I could pull that one off."  But back to my original observation, I believe their were other spirit beings, there in the garden. I don't think God switched from, trees = people, to trees = food, as in nourishment in mid thought. Although I believe all of the other trees in the garden were faithful to Christ; Non were fallen angels faithful to Satan. Remember, God told Adam to eat of every tree except Satan. 
See Gen. 2:17 below.

God supplied all the trees for the enjoyment and nourishment of Adam. There were no limits placed on Adam, except for one.

Genesis 2:17 "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."

Verse seventeen is an extension to verse sixteen, and sets the only conditional limit to what Adam could do.

The" tree of the knowledge of good and evil" is Satan, 
and he represents that evil tree today,
just as he did in the garden of Eden
.

Tradition has so distorted this verse that most Christians today believe it was an actual tree spoken of, and in fact they will even tell you it was an apple tree.
They do this in ignorance because they have not studied God's Word.

The "trees" are symbols for people, and the Bible has identified them. The three trees talked about in verses sixteen and seventeen are
the "Tree of Knowledge of good and evil" [Satan], which was man's ruin;
The "cross" in which I Peter 2:24 sets the way for man's redemption;
and "The Tree of Life" which is Christ, and offers man's regeneration.

"In the day that thou eatest" gives us the key to understand man's physical span of life. For Peter gives us the key to this understanding in 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." No man has ever exceeded the thousand year period, not even "Methuselah" who lived "nine hundred sixty and nine years: and he died." [Genesis 5:27

Why? Because Adam didn't listen and ate from the Tree in the midst of the garden (Satan). And Adam lived 930 years; 70 years short of one of God's days as Peter told us. See "in the day" in verse 17 below.
Genesis 2:17 "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." 
 

This is the verse that Satan misquotes to Eve, and when questioned by God, and Eve likewise misquotes it back to God. [Genesis 3:3] God told Adam that the day he touches Satan, "thou shalt surely die". And later, after the fact, Eve is repeating it back to God; "God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die." Just a little half truth. However Satan takes it one step beyond in verse four; "And the serpent said unto the woman, "Ye shall not surely die:" Then Eve believed Satan's lie. We will get deeper into this in the next chapter.

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."

"That the man" refers to a particular man; Adam (eth-ha-adham). This sets Adam apart from the other races created on the sixth day creation. The term "help meet" in the Hebrew text, should be translated "as his counterpart".

Genesis 2:19 "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 creatures that God created and brought to Adam, are what we would call domestic animals, or farm animals.

God does things in a natural way, and the nature and reason for Adam's [Ha-adham's] existence was to till the soil [farming], so we see the need for why these animals existed.

So let's review the order of the creation physical life on earth to this point: 

In chapter one;

First came the trees, grass, and plant life; followed by the fish and the fowl [birds] on the fourth day.

Second in the order God, created the beasts of the earth in Genesis 1:25 (not beasts of the field as in Genesis 2:20), or the wild animals on the fifth day.

Third came male and female, all the races except for Adam {eth-Ha-Adham}, and this was done on the sixth day.

Fourth in the order of God's creation was the time on the seventh day for rest.

Fifth in the order of God's creation, on the eighth day [or a time beyond] God formed Adam, [eth-Ha-adham] to till the soil.

The last order of the creation to this point is the creation of all domestic animals, for the use by Adam, and his naming of them.

Genesis 2:20 "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."

Beasts of the field here not beasts of the earth as stated in Genesis 1:25

Genesis 1:25 "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."

So though the races had their male and female counterparts

 God has given only the domestic animals, 

and no wife to Adam.

 Remember, God's order for His creation was "kind after kind". In the term; "..there was not found an help meet for him", indicates that God never intended for the mixing of the races. 

This is why "there was not found" a wife for Adam.

  John's Note: I believe, and this is only speculation, that this was true at that time. But remember, this special man and women were formed for the purpose of having a pure bred descendant of theirs sire our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Since Jesus has already been born to a pure bred descendant, I am not sure the statement ("God never intended for the mixing of the races".) the author made above, applies today. I could be wrong.  I've been wrong in the past.  Just ask my wife!

There is no documentation which spells out the method of God's creation for the other races, and whatever is said is pure speculation

 However, all the races are God's children, and God loves all his children.
 Genesis 2:21 "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;"

Adam was made in the image of God, and the angels, however, Adam is about to have surgery to change something." Does this mean that man is one rib short? Of course not. The word "rib" in the Hebrew text is "Tsela", and Strong's Dictionary numbers it # 6763, from the prime root, # 6760; "to curve".

What that surgery was, has as many answers as there is people guessing. However, we know that Eve was formed from Adam by the use of surgery. Enough said!

Genesis 2:22 "And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made He a woman, and brought her unto the man."

We know the man in this verse is Adam, because verse twenty two is part of verse twenty one. God set this woman apart from all other women living then, that were formed through the sixth day creation. It will be through this woman that the Christ child would come [be born], and from her daughters.

Live Link to- Eve was not just any women, was she? She had a special purpose, as  did Adam.  By: John Rhine

The documentation connecting Eve [this woman] and the Christ child is given in Luke 3:23-38. The only way your soul will obtain eternal life is through that Christ child, and through His shed blood on the cross, and our repentance and acceptance of Him .

Luke 3:23 "And Jesus Himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as it was supposed) the Son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli,"

As you go through these many names, remember that each of them played a part in the stories of the entire Old Testament. The Bible is a story of one man, Adam, and His family. All the other nations of the earth that are part of our Bible enter by what they did to this family either for good or bad. There is no cover-up in the Scripture text, for if there are, it is by the hand of a Kenite Scribe trying to hide themselves as they came into control, and took over the duties of the scribes following the captivity of Judah in Babylon.

Ezra warned us of this fact in Ezra 8:15; when he stopped to take account of who and what was going back to Jerusalem to build the temple, and set up worship there. "And I gathered them together to the river that runneth to Ahava; and there abode we in tents three days: and I viewed the People, and the priests, and found there none of the sons of Levi." The Levitical priesthood was completely taken over from top to bottom by these foreign men brought in for service

They are called "Nethinims"; these oriental sons of Cain called "Kenites" in I Chronicles 2:55; "And the families of the scribes which dwelt at Jabez; the Tirathites, the Shimeathites, and Suchathites. These are the Kenites that came of Hamath, the father of the house of Rechab." 

 Did your pastor teach you that these descendants of Cain survived Noah's flood? I'll wager he didn't! In fact I'LL WAGER HE TOLD YOU NOAH'S FLOOD WAS UNIVERSAL. Yep, world wide and everyone in the world drown except those eight people on the ark.  Well I Chronicles 2:55 was written many years after Noah's flood. So ask your pastor how did the Kenites survive the flood? He has Noah's Flood and Lucifer's Flood mixed up or worse yet balled into one flood! Tell him, he ought to read his Bible. 

Live Link to-  Noah's Flood

Live Link to- Lucifer's flood

This is why we must be diligent in our studies, for there were many changes by these Kenites, to make the Word of God conform to their traditions.

So from the time of the birth of David, to the time of the birth of Christ was just over one thousand years. The time under the kings of Israel and Judah ran for about five hundred years until Nebuchadnezzar took Jerusalem captive about 500 B. C. David is of the king line of Judah, for this would be Mary father's blood line.

As you read these names, the term "Which was", in the Hebrew text is what we use today as "which was supposed or reckoned by law", or better know as "in-laws; father in law etc.". This is recording the in-laws of Joseph, or the bloodline of Mary's father. We know Mary's mother is of the lineage of Aaron, or Levi, as Mary and Elisabeth were cousins. Mary's mother and Elisabeth's mother were sisters, giving Jesus the lineage of both priest and king.

Luke 3:24 "Which was the son of Matthat, which was the son of Levi, which was the son of Melchi, which was the son of Janna, which was the son of Joseph,"

As you read through the rest of this chapter, notice that there is nothing noting that a begat took place, or these men being blood relatives of Joseph. As stated before, these men are of the lineage of Mary's father, and not Joseph's. They are relatives as by law, in-laws. It was common by law at this time, if there was no son in the family, which was the case here, the lineage passed off to the husband of the wife. So this is the reason that it states that Joseph was of Heli, when by blood Joseph was the son of Jacob. That was given to us in Matthew 1:16.

This is why Jesus became the King of kings and Lord of Lords by birth. The throne is His, and at the seventh trump He will return to take it. Revelation 19:12-19 tells us so.

Luke 3:25 "Which was the son of Mattathias, which was the son of Amos, which was the son of Naum, which was the son of Esli, which was the son of Nagge,"

Luke 3:26 "Which was the son of Maath, which was the son of Mattathias, which was the son of Semei, which was the son of Joseph, which was the son of Juda,"

Luke 3:27 "Which was the son of Joanna, which was the son of Rhesa, which was the son of Zorobabel, which was the son of Salathiel, which was the son of Neri,"

Luke 3:28 "Which was the son of Melchi, which was the son of addi, which was the son of Cosam, which was the son of Elmodam, which was the son of Er,"

Luke 3:29 "Which was the son of Jose, which was the son of Eliezer, which was the son of Jorim, which was the son of Matthat, which was the son of Levi,"

Luke 3:30 "Which was the son of Simeon, which was the son of Juda, which was the son of Joseph, which was the son of Jonan, which was the son of Eliakim,"

Luke 3:31 "Which was the son of Melea, which was the son of Menan, which was the son of Mattatha, which was the son of Nathan, which was the son of David,"

Notice that the lineage of Christ through David was not through Solomon, but through Nathan. When we compare this lineage with Joseph's in Matthew 1 we see that Joseph's lineage came through Solomon, the son of David.

Luke 3:32 "Which was the son of Jesse, which was the son of Obed, which was the son of Booz, which was the son of Salmon, which was the son of Naason,"

The book of Ruth is a study of this beautiful Moabitess woman and her commitment to Naomi, her mother in law. She left her homeland to return to Bethlehem-Judah, and marry the just man Booz [Boaz]. Boaz was the great grandfather of David.

Luke 3:33 "Which was the son of Aminadab, which was the son of Aram, which was the son of Esrom, which was the son of Phares, which was the son of Juda,"

Luke 3:34 "Which was the son of Jacob, which was the son of Isaac, which was the son of Abraham, which was the son of Thara, which was the son of Nachor,"

The blood line of Jesus Christ from Noah to Abraham is given in Genesis 10:21-30. This is the time period following the flood, to the time Abraham left the land of Ur in the land of Chaldees.

There is an listing of the time periods in the Companion Bible, appendix 50. This chart lists this period of time from the flood to Abraham as from 2348 to 1996 B.C., a period of 452 years.

Luke 3:35 "Which was the son of Saruch, which was the son of Ragau, which was the son of Phalec, which was the son of Heber, which was the son of Sala,"

Luke 3:36 "Which was the son of Cainan, which was the son of Arphaxad, which was the son of Sem, which was the son of Noe, which was the son of Lamech,"

The tenth chapter of Genesis gives us the lineage from Noah through his three sons; while the lineage, or blood line of Shem is given from Genesis 11:10-32. These names given are in the Hebrew, while Luke is giving us the Greek for of the same name. In verse twenty four we read; "And Arphaxad begat Salah; and Salah begat Eber." The second witness to this is in Genesis 11:12; "And Arphaxad lived five and thirty years, and begat Salah:" Sure there was a Cainan who was the son of Enos, but a Kenite scribe entered an extra Cainan into the lineage of Jesus here in Luke 3:36. So if your trying to fit biblical numerics to the lineage of Christ, pay attention to your number count between Luke and Genesis.

Luke 3:37 "Which was the son of Mathusala, which was the son of Enoch, which was the son of Jared, which was the son of Maleleel, which was the son of Cainan,"

Luke 3:38 "Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God."

It is important to notice that last birth, "Which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God." Adam was created by God, the son of God. God was the father of Christ, the only begotten child of the Father. He became the Savior to the world. The time period from the forming of Adam 4004 B.C., on the eight day of the creation period, to the flood of Noah's time in 1996 B.C as two thousand eight years. Notice that the ages of mankind 700 years to Methuselah at 969 years of age. Genesis 5:27 "And all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred sixty and nine years: and he died."

During these two thousand years, Satan attacked the lineage of mankind by having his fallen angels come down to earth, entering this dimension of flesh man to marry the human daughters of man, and having children. This went against God's plan for this age of flesh man, born innocent, and having the right to choose God's way or Satan's path to destruction for themselves. The point to draw attention to here in the lineage Jesus Christ is in Genesis 6:9.

Genesis 6:9 "These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God."

"Generations" as given in the Hebrew text is "toledoth", meaning "family history". And the word "perfect" as referenced to "his generations"; in the Hebrew text the word is "tamim", and today we call it "as to breed or pedigree." "Tamin" was important in the use of animal sacrifices. Those people raising animals know exactly what is meant by pedigree and breeding, it is keeping the unwanted strains out of the blood line of the animal. The reason for the flood in the first place was that the entire population of the earth by the end of that two thousand year period was completely contaminated with the blood of those fallen angels, and mankind was full of all sorts of wickedness. God sent the flood on the earth to destroy those corrupted people of the earth. To protect the future blood line of our Lord and Savior that we are reading of here in Luke. This is why it become important to notice when Kenite Scribes try to taint the lineage of Christ, by adding to it or taking away from that lineage.

The progeny of the fallen angels with the daughters of Adam brought about the "Nephilim", also referred to as "Giants". "Nephilim" in the Hebrew means "fallen ones", coming from "naphal" or "to fall". These offspring of the Nephilim became know as "gibbor" meaning "heroes". Jesus warned us in Matthew 24:37-39 that it would be exactly as it was in the days of Noah at the time the flood came, at the time of our Lord's return. We know this to be true, for shortly Michael will boot Satan and his fallen angels to the earth for that final time before our Lords Return at the seventh trump.

Luke has given us the exact birth of John the Baptist, as well as Christ. He has allowed us to determine the exact time of both John the Baptist and Jesus' birth dates, which gives us fixed dates. Using both the first and the third chapters of Luke we can determine that the conception of the virgin Mary took place on December 25, and the birth of Christ on the feast of the tabernacles, nine months later. Jesus was circumcised on the eighth day, the day of atonement. This is recorded day by day in detail in Appendix 179 in the Companion Bible. This makes December 25 very special, as it is the time that God came to dwell with man. This proves the time of life within the soul of an unborn baby starts at conception. It said that the Babe within Elisabeth's womb leaped with joy. Joy is fixed to the human thinking process, and requires a soul and spirit. It is not a physical reaction but a spiritual reaction.

Its time to wake up, for most of the events of the end times are past history. The one world system is here and controlling the nations of the earth. the Jews have gone back to Jerusalem in 1948.

Live Link to- The Parable of the Fig Tree

Genesis 2:23 "And Adam said, "This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man."

There were no women in the world that was [the first earth age], for all souls were the same in the first earth age. The same angelic body form that the angels have in this earth age, is the form that our souls had in the first earth age. There were no females, for all souls of that age are referred to as "sons", or in the masculine sense, by God.

  So what did the term "son of God" mean? It must have meant offspring but not a reference to gender if there was no such thing as gender.

My personal opinion is that God took the stronger souls and put them in the female bodies, because the can take a lot more pain then men, through childbirth.

Genesis 2:24 "Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh."

When a man and woman replenishes the earth, they both become one flesh through their offspring. Spiritually they are one flesh anyway, for "what God has brought together, let no man put asunder". The greatest gift that God gave to man, was a woman to be his helpmate.

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

Why were they not ashamed? They had not met the snake yet. They had not yet partaken of the person known as "the tree of the knowledge of good and evil", and the world knows him as Satan.

To continue into Genesis and get the full understanding of what happened in the garden of Eden, you have to go into the Hebrew Text

Live Link to-  What happened in the garden

That understanding has had a bearing on all mankind, and even effects prophecy in these final days.

It requires a concordance which is numbered to the Hebrew dictionary. This will allow you to take the Hebrew words, and concepts back to the prime root meaning. Strong's Exhaustive concordance with Hebrew and Greek dictionary is probably the best study tool on the market today.

The Companion Bible, which follows the King James 1611 edition, combined with the Massorah text, compiled by Dr. C. D. Ginsburg from the ancient Massorah manuscripts, is by far the most superior and accurate of all versions on the market today. The Companion Bible is not a New Translation, and it is not an amended translation; it is not even a commentary. By using the original text, it is giving you exactly what the words of the original text mean, the Bible itself becomes the interpreter of God's Word, and His Will.

It is by the use of the Companion Bible, by Kregel publications that we will continue our studies into these Scriptures.

 American Wisdom Series Editor's Note: We are going to stop here in our "In the Beginning Study" to review some commentary from chapter 2 in an earlier study we published on the the first 11 chapters of Genesis.  I don't believe you will find much difference in the general opinion of these 2 authors, but to read another person's perspective of events that took place at the start of God's creation of our universe may prove helpful in your understanding of the beginning of both the first and the second earth ages Because if you don't understand what happened in the beginning you will not understand the remainder of Scriptural teaching

Genesis
Chapter 2

And so it was that 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.

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 if you have one (and you should). 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.

Host H6635
צבאה    צבא
tsa?ba?'  tseba?'a?h
tsaw-baw', tseb-aw-aw'
From H6633; a mass of persons (or figurative things), especially regularly organized for war (an army); by implication a campaign, literally or figuratively (specifically hardship, worship): - appointed time, (+) army, (+) battle, company, host, service, soldiers, waiting upon, war (-fare).

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?  Same "whirlwind" we find in Ezekiel (Live Links)to- chapter 1 and chapter 10
This statement by our Father to Job follows 34 chapters of "bologna", man's preaching, by Job's three friends Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite (he has to be the shortest man in the Bible if he's only a shuhite), and Zophar the Naamathite.
[3] Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me.
Stand up and act like a man, Job!
[4] Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast 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;
[7] When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
It was a joyous occasion!
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.

Mankind would be going 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.

Now, you will find that in just about every commentary of the Bible extant, 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. This false assumption will lead 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 created first and then the animals. Which is it?

The answer is BOTH. There are two separate creations. 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 we noticed 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. They 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". It is significant that eight, in Biblical numerics, means "new beginnings", because God is about to form a new man for a very, very special purpose.

[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 is " 'eth-ha adham", with the article and particle, and means "this same man Adam".  It means a specific man, not mankind in general. Again, if you are fortunate to have a Companion Bible, it will document this for you.

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 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, did He? 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.
Do you see that there were two specific trees present in the midst of the garden? Do you know what or who they were? We will find out soon. (Note: throughout the Bible trees symbolically represent people)

Verses 10 through 14 describe the geographical location of Eden which we shall discuss in more detail when we get to chapter 6 in Genesis.

[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:
Adam was told that he could eat of every tree that is good for food, i.e. bears fruit and nuts, etc. But, take note there is also spiritual food we are to eat daily, i.e. the bread of life; Adam also had a spirit that needed nourishment.
[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 may 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 will discover and document who the tree of the knowledge of good and evil really is, and in doing so, we will shatter one of Satan's biggest and most prolific lies.  For some, it may well be one of most interesting Bible studies they have ever read.

But first, 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 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, 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.
Oh, the poor boy is lonely.

This particular verse should easily be understood by all those who have gone through puberty, i.e. Adam needed a woman. The fundamental things of life remain, "As Time Goes By".

[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, i.e. Old McAdam, the farmer.

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 (wild kingdom I like to call it).

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. Once again, 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.
This verse reveals that dog is not really man's best friend! So don't let anyone fool you into believing that line.
[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;
Adam was the first human being to under surgery. The Hebrew word translated "rib" is tsela, and it is derived from the root word tsala, which means "curve", not rib. And so it is that women are more "curvy" than men.
[22] And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
Some would speculate that the "curve" taken from Adam was in fact his DNA, which it may well have been. Although DNA is very "curvy" (if you've ever seen a model of it), not much in the way anesthesia and surgery would be necessary to acquire it.

I truly love this aspect about God's Word, when not much in the way of details is supplied to an event or occurrence, and we are left free to speculate and use good common sense.

[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.
While we are on the subject of speculation, do you suppose Adam witnessed the formation of some of the domestic animals that his Father formed and brought to him? It would certainly make the reality of this verse profoundly more impressive to Adam, knowing that this time God used material and substance taken directly from his own body. Think about it!
[24] Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
Ephesians chapter five will document the spiritual aspect of being one flesh, and that husbands and wives should love each other as much as our own flesh.

But even so, it is true that when a man and a woman "cleave" together, their combined flesh becomes "one flesh" in their child.

[25] And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
They had no reason to be ashamed for they had committed no sin. Neither would any husband and wife, standing before each other naked, be ashamed, unless perhaps one of them had been unfaithful!

                

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.
