Genesis Two

“The Great Flood”
Part 1

And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, (Genesis:6:1)

That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. (Genesis:6:2)

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. (Genesis:6:3)

I need you to get that picture you have in your head of a human being, whether it’s a male figure or a female figure out of your head!

I should have made this clear in the beginning. I will make it clear in the beginning when I do the rewrite for the book, but for now I need you to understand, when the “Author” writes the words “Man,” “Woman,” “Son” or “Daughter” in Genesis chapters one through ten, a literary device called Anthropomorphism is being used.

An anthropomorphism is a literary device that can be defined as a technique in which a writer ascribes human traits, ambitions, emotions, or entire behaviors to animals, non-human beings, natural phenomena, or objects.

Think of God as an “Army” of microorganisms working together to create, build and control things.

When necessary these microorganisms join together and become things. They are both male and female, so they reproduce continually.

Think of these microorganisms as being “Oxygen” which is “Air” which is “Wind.”

Think of the LORD as their Commander and Chief, the mind of these microorganisms, which, with just a thought can change the “Wind” into a “Tornado!”

Think of “Man,” created in the image and likenesses of God, as a far less “Powerful” version of that “Army” of microorganisms whose “Commander and Chief ” is God.

Think of “Man,” formed of the dust of the ground as “Man,” created in the image and likenesses of God encapsulated inside a body made of the dust of the ground; a “Seed,” that will develop and grow over time into a human being; with behavior issues.

The first living, breathing “Seed” (man formed of the dust of the ground) is named Adam.

Then came Eve and so on, until after generations of developing, the seed became a “Plant,” the plant became a “Tree” and the tree became a “Human Being.”

Something like that…

In Genesis chapter six verses one through three, the “Sons” of God and the “Daughters” of Man are microorganisms.

In verse three:

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. (Genesis:6:3)

The LORD is speaking of “Future Man.” That is, “Man” in human form; like me and you.
We know this because, the characters being written about in chapter six are still living hundreds of years.

The word Flesh in this instance, has two meanings:

(1) flesh (from its freshness); by extension {body} person;
(2) to {stray} that {is} (figuratively) sin (with more or less apology): – X also for {that} {deceived} {err} go {astray} sin ignorantly.

I’m going to say the second definition associated with the word flesh is the reason God destroyed everything on Earth.

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. (Genesis:6:4)

Giant means; a {feller} that {is} a bully or tyrant: – giant.

And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. (Genesis:6:5)

And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. (Genesis:6:6)

And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. (Genesis:6:7)

But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. (Genesis:6:8)

The name Noah means; rest; quiet: – rest ({-ed} -ing place). to {rest} that {is} settle down; to dwell.

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

And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. (Genesis:6:10)

Noah’s Ark may seem unbelievable to a lot of people, but Noah and his three sons; Shem, Ham and Japheth are taken very serious.

In addition to the Book of Genesis, Noah is mentioned in the Old Testament in the First Book of Chronicles, and the books of Tobit, Wisdom, Sirach, Isaiah, Ezekiel, 2 Esdras, 4 Maccabees; in the New Testament, he is mentioned in the gospels of Matthew, and Luke, the Epistle to the Hebrews, 1st Peter and 2nd Peter. Noah was the subject of much elaboration in the literature of later Abrahamic religions, including the Quran.

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

And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. (Genesis:6:12)

Corrupt – to {decay} that {is} (causatively) ruin (literally or figuratively).

Way – road (as trodden); figuratively a course of life or mode of {action}.

And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth. (Genesis:6:13)

Violence – by implication wrong; by metonymy unjust gain: – cruel ({-ty}) {damage} {false} {injustice} X {oppressor} {unrighteous} violence ({against} {done}) violent ({dealing}) wrong.

I believe the story of Noah’s Ark to be a metaphor. The “Author” loaded the building of the ark with seemingly, great detail to create a sense of reality in the mind of the reader.

At the same time, instructing Noah to bring:

And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female. (Genesis:6:19)

Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive. (Genesis:6:20)

And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them. (Genesis:6:21)

It is hard enough for some people to believe that the ark could have held two of every living thing and food for them, then in Genesis chapter seven verses two and three:

Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female. (Genesis:7:2)

Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth. (Genesis:7:3)

But then to throw in seven of every clean beast and seven of every fowl? The male and the female?

Knowing the “Author” like I do, there’s got to be something up with that!

I f*%king knew it!!!

In Genesis chapter six verse nineteen where the LORD instructed Noah, “And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female.” (Genesis:6:19)

The words, “Male and Female” are the same, “Male and Female” that the “Author” used in Genesis chapter one verse twenty seven:

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. (Genesis:1:27)

Male – {remembered} that {is} a male (of man or {animals} as being the most noteworthy sex).

Female – to {puncture} literally (to {perforate} with more or less violence) or figuratively (to {specify} {designate } female (from the sexual form).

That being the case, just like the “Man” created in the image and likenesses of God, every living thing of all flesh is “Pure Consciousness,” in the form of microorganisms.

Then in Genesis chapter seven verse two:

Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female. (Genesis:7:2)

The words “Male and Female” are the same “Male and Female” that the “Author” used in Genesis chapter two verse twenty three:

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. (Genesis:2:23)

Male (same as “Man”) – an unused root meaning to be extant.

Female (same as “Woman”) – The first form is the feminine of the “Male” definition: to be extant.

Wow, that just confirmed, at least in my mind, that God is still with me…

I was worried that the “Author” had stopped writing or maybe just stopped communicating with me.

I’m thinking, the first five or six chapters which are loaded with literary devices, are the “Key” to how to read the rest of the “Holy Bible.”

Anyway, I take back what I said about the story of Noah’s Ark being a metaphor.

According to this information gleaned from the scriptures of “The Holy Bible” and the definitions taken from the Strong’s Concordance; God, Man and “every living thing of all flesh on Noah’s Ark are entities of “Pure Consciousness,” both male and female (Hermaphrodite); microorganisms.

A hermaphrodite is an organism that has both male and female reproductive organs and can perform both the male and female parts of reproduction. In some hermaphrodites, the animal starts out as one sex and switches to the other sex later in its life.

Therefore, Noah’s family, every living thing of all flesh and food for them could’ve and did fit on Noah’s Ark.

And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood. (Genesis:7:7)

Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth, (Genesis:7:8)

There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah. (Genesis:7:9)

And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth. (Genesis:7:17)

And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters. (Genesis:7:18)

And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered. (Genesis:7:19)

Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered. (Genesis:7:20)

I have a problem with Genesis chapter seven verse twenty, so I looked it up in the Strong’s Concordance.

Prevail – be strong; by implication to {prevail} act insolently: – {exceed} {confirm} be {great} be {mighty} {prevail} put to more {[strength]} {strengthen} be {stronger} be valiant.

No help there.

I’m looking for anything to explain to me, why in Genesis chapter six verse fifteen it reads:

And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits. (Genesis:6:15)

Then in Genesis chapter seven verse twenty it reads:

Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered. (Genesis:7:20)

If the Ark was thirty cubits tall and the waters prevailed fifteen cubits upward, wouldn’t that be like putting a yacht in a pond?

I know, I’m just like that. I question everything.

So I went to Google to see what everyone else was saying. Here are two comments:

Fifteen cubits upward.—This apparently was the draught – Special sailing lingo – the depth for a boat to be able to float) of the ark, computed after it had settled.

The phrase “fifteen cubits” in 7:20 must refer to how deep the Ark sank into the water when it was fully laden.

Pick one!

I’m going to say the story of Noah’s Ark, seeing that every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and whatsoever creepeth upon the earth was in the form of pure consciousness/microorganisms encapsulated in bodies formed of the dust of the ground, is written from a “Pure Consciousness, other “Realm” point of view.

Therefore, it makes little difference how many cubits upward the waters prevailed.

Of course if I discover otherwise I will post a correction.

The Relevance of the Holy Bible Today

“The Two Families”
Part 4
And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. (Genesis:4:25)
This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him; (Genesis:5:1)
Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created. (Genesis:5:2)
And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, and after his image; and called his name Seth: (Genesis:5:3)
The Adam in Genesis chapter four verse twenty five is the “Man” created in the image and likenesses of God.
The Adam in Genesis chapter five verse one is the “Man” formed of the dust of the ground.
The Author repeated the phrase:
“In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him; male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam,” to make the reader believe or assume, your choice, that the Adam in Genesis chapter five verse one is the “Man” created in the image and likenesses of God.
To be clear, this is the book of the generations of Adam, the “Man” formed of the dust of the ground.
And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, and after his image; and called his name Seth: (Genesis:5:3)
Adam, the “Man” formed of the dust of the ground lived a hundred and thirty years and begat a son in his own likeness, not the likeness of God and after his image; not the image of God and called his name Seth, not the Seth that Adam’s wife said, “God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.”
Notice, Adam begat a son. No mention of his wife, no mention of Eve, just another reason that I believe God and the “Man” created in the image and likenesses of God are both Male and Female.
Two entities named Seth, one a mortal, son of God and the other a mortal, son of the “Man” formed of the dust of the ground, Adam.
Don’t get it twisted!
And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters: (Genesis:5:4)
And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died. (Genesis:5:5)
And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died.
Until you started reading my posts, I’ll bet you and everyone else thought there was only one Adam and that that, one Adam lived nine hundred and thirty years then died.
The “Author” carefully constructed sentences, phrases and whole stories to place information that only someone seriously looking for the “Truth” would find.
That’s why there is so much confusion in the world today. Nobody knows what to believe!
Everyone has decided to “Run With” the Pastor or Priest who says what they  themselves are “Willing to Except.”
That’s not how it works people!
This is how it works.
You believe what you want to believe, but when you hear the “Truth” you need to stop that old way of behaving and start behaving in that way that align perfectly with your new belief.
That’s what it is all about.  God has a message for you that was written thousands of years ago.
That message has been waiting in HIS word to be realized.
The bible has not been more relevant then it is today.
Until now, “Wheat has been Growing with the Tares.”
Tares –  (darnel or false grain: – tares.)
Darnel is a “mimic weed,” neither entirely tame or quite wild, that looks and behaves so much like wheat that it can’t live without human assistance.
Another parable put he (Jesus) forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: (Matthew:13:24)
But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. (Matthew:13:25)
But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. (Matthew:13:26)
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 (Matthew:13:27)
He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? (Matthew:13:28)
But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. (Matthew:13:29)
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. (Matthew:13:30)
Wheat and weed is one thing, okay, two things, but we’re talking human beings here!
How could you tell the difference between a “Good “ human being and a “Bad” human being?
Who should be gathered up together first and bound into bundles to burn and who should be gathered into the barn?
And Seth lived an hundred and five years, and begat Enos: (Genesis:5:6)
And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD. (Genesis:4:26)
Yes, two entities named Enos. One born to Seth, the son of Eve; the mortal, son of God and one born to Seth, the son of Adam; the “Man” formed of the dust of the ground.
Although the Author is twisting everything around, don’t you get it twisted!
This little transition separates the God like family from the “Man” formed of the dust of the ground like family.
One half of the God like family is extant.  The other half of the God like family is mortal, which means they can die.
All the members of the “Man” formed of the dust of the ground like family, are mortal and die.
Here is where the Author performs a “Master Stroke” of literary genius.
The Author “Seamlessly” went from talking about God like, eternal entities, (Realm #1) to talking about the mortal  descendants of Adam, the “Man” formed of the dust of the ground, (Realm  #2) by simply giving members of each group the same name.
Anyone reading the Holy Bible without the aid of a Strong’s Concordance wouldn’t have a “Clue!”
For example; without the aid of the Strong’s Concordance, the reader wouldn’t realize that Adam, the “Man” created in the image and likenesses of God, Eve, the “Woman” taken from the man created in the image and likenesses of God, Cain, who Eve said , “I have gotten a man from the LORD and Seth, the son of Eve who she said, “For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew, just “fall off the map!” (Genesis:4:25))
In other words, there is nothing written about when they died or was killed, nothing.
Genesis chapter five verses six through twenty-six is a list of the names of the descendants of Adam, the “Man” formed of the dust of the ground; their births and deaths.
I will add the meanings of the names to the list instead of writing all the scriptures just to emphasize the importance of names.
And Seth lived an hundred and five years, and begat Enos: (Genesis:5:6)
Seth – put} that {is} substituted.
Enos – a mortal (singly or collectively).
And Enos lived ninety years, and begat Cainan: (Genesis:5:9)
Caiman – fixed. a nest;  figuratively a chamber or dwelling: – {nest} room.
And Cainan lived seventy years and begat Mahalaleel: (Genesis:5:12)
Mahalaleel – praise of God.
And Mahalaleel lived sixty and five years, and begat Jared: (Genesis:5:15)
Jared – a descent. to descend (literally to go downwards; figuratively to fall); causatively to bring down (in all the above applications)
And Jared lived an hundred sixty and two years, and he begat Enoch: (Genesis:5:18)
Enoch – initiated; figuratively to initiate or discipline: – {dedicate} train up.
And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah: (Genesis:5:21)
Methuselah – man of a dart; missile of {attack} that {is} spear; also (figuratively) a shoot of {growth} that {is} branch: – {dart}
And Methuselah lived an hundred eighty and seven years, and begat Lamech:
Lamech – an unused root of uncertain meaning.
And Lamech lived an hundred eighty and two years, and begat a son: (Genesis:5:28)
And he called his name Noah, saying, This same shall comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground which the LORD hath cursed. (Genesis:5:29)
Noah – rest; quiet: – rest ({-ed} -ing place); to {rest} that {is} settle down.
And Noah was five hundred years old: and Noah begat Shem, Ham, and Japheth. (Genesis:5:32)
Shem – name; an {appellation} as a mark or memorial of individuality; by implication {honor} {authority } character.
Ham – hot (from the tropical habitat); hot} warm.
Japheth – expansion; to {open} that {is} be (causatively make) roomy; usually figuratively (in a mental or moral sense) to be (causatively make) simple or (in a sinister way) delude: – {allure} {deceive}.
These are the members of the second of the “Two Families.”
These are the descendants of Adam, the “Man” formed of the dust of the ground.

“The Two Families”
Part 3

And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD. (Genesis:4:1)

Genesis chapter four verse one is loaded with what can only be described as the Author’s “Finest Work!”

When you read that verse, what do you understand it to mean?

I’ve been taught that, “Adam knew Eve his wife,” meant, Adam and Eve made love.

I’ve been taught that, “And she conceived, and bare Cain,” meant, Eve got pregnant and gave birth to Cain.

I’ve been taught that, “And said, I have gotten a man from the LORD,” meant, “Thanks to the LORD.”

Is that about right?

Imagine my surprise when I looked up the meanings of the words in Genesis chapter four verse one.

Adam is the “Man” created in the image and likenesses of God.

Knew is defined as; to know (properly to ascertain by seeing).

And,

properly to {come} that {is} (impliedly) to assent: – consent.
a signal (literally or {figuratively}) as a {flag} beacon in the demonstrative sense of entity; properly self.

Eve is the “Woman” who was taken out of “Man;” the eternal element of the Man who was created in the image and likenesses of God. Who’s name means; life giver.

Wife means; the feminine of “Man;” To be extant; a man as an individual or a male person or “Man;” a mortal; (Individual or collectively).

Conceived means; to be (or become) {pregnant} conceive (literally of figuratively): – {been} be with {child}.

Bare means; to bear young,

And,

properly to {come} that {is} (impliedly) to assent: – consent.
a signal (literally or {figuratively}) as a {flag} beacon in the demonstrative sense of entity; properly self.

Cain, who’s name means; in the original sense of fixity; a lance (as striking fast): – spear.

And,

To strike a musical {note} that {is} chant or wail (at a funeral): – {lament} mourning woman.

“Man” means; to be extant; a man as an individual or a male person.

LORD means; (the) self Existent or eternal; {exist} that {is} be or {become} come to pass; to breathe; to be (in the sense of existence).

The “Adam” in Genesis chapter four verse one is the “Man” created in the image and likenesses of God.

He “Knew” his “Wife” like you and I know our feet.

Lol!

In other words, Adam knew Eve like we know a friend:

But, he also knew Eve in a way that I can only describe as, “In the same way God created the heaven and the earth.”

I believe that Adam knew Eve in a “Pure Consciousness” totally “Mental,” different “Realm” kind of way.

At least that’s what the Strong’s Concordance say about the second definition associated with this word “Knew.”

Eve conceived; became pregnant.

Because “Know” has two meanings associated with it in the Strong’s Concordance and we know a woman cannot get pregnant just because she is known by someone, we will use the second definition associated with “Knew” and say Eve conceived by assent: – consent.

According to her, “I have gotten a “Man” from the LORD.” (Genesis:4:1)

She bare Cain in exactly the same way God created the heaven and the earth: In the same way Adam “Knew” her.

The words created (in the case of God creating the heaven and the earth), knew and bare (in Cain’s case) all have the same meaning.

The best way to understand is to think of the events as being “Miracles.”

A surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore considered to be the work of a divine agency.

And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground. (Genesis:4:2)

She again bare his brother Abel. She bare Abel in the same way every woman bare children. The “Author” made it seem like, “Not a big deal.”
At least that’s the impression I got.

Cain slew Abel which was a big deal.

It was a big deal because, how else could the “Author” dazzle us with more of his extraordinary talent?

Here is where the Author reveals the importance of “Names.”

I know I mentioned in an earlier post that the Author takes the meanings of names and weaves a story around those meanings.

What I didn’t mention is, whoever wrote the Holy Bible used this same technique throughout the entire book.

As a matter of fact, the titles of each book play an important role in each and every story in that book.

This technique of writing starts in the book of Genesis and continue through the four Gospels.

Abel means; emptiness or vanity; figuratively something transitory and unsatisfactory.

Which is probably why the Author made his being born seem unimportant.

Abel’s death however, is huge!

There is a word in the definition of the name Cain, “Fixity.”

Fixity means; the state of being unchanging or permanent.

As far as I can tell, I will post a correction if I discover otherwise, the names or the meanings of the names as well as the actions of the characters with the names, constitute what we experience as reality here on Earth, today.

What has happened in the “Realm of the gods,” continue to happen here on Earth!

Cain murdered Abel so, murder continues to happen here on Earth.

Cain slew Abel. God cursed Cain. Cain complained that the punishment was too great, so

God said and did this:
And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him. (Genesis:4:15)

By writing those words, the “Author” or the LORD made Cain “Immortal.”

And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch. (Genesis:4:17)

Enoch – properly to narrow; figuratively to initiate or discipline.

And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech. (Genesis:4:18)

Irad – fugitive
Mehujael – smitten of God;
Methusael – man who (is) of God;
Lamech – From an unused root of uncertain meaning.

And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah. (Genesis:4:19)

Adah – ornament
Zillah – shade} whether literally or figuratively: – {defense} shade (-ow).

And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle. (Genesis:4:20)

Jabal – stream: – [water-] {course} stream.

And his brother’s name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ. (Genesis:4:21)

Jubal – to flow; causatively to bring (especially with pomp): – bring ({forth}) {carry} lead (forth). Stream.

And Zillah, she also bare Tubalcain, an instructor of every artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubalcain was Naamah. (Genesis:4:22)

Tubalcain – produce that {is} a crop or (figuratively) wealth: – {fruit} increase.
Naamah – pleasure; pleasantness

And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my voice; ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: for I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt. (Genesis:4:23)

If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold. (Genesis:4:24)

Here in Genesis chapter four verse twenty-four the Author is letting us know that Cain’s descendants are immortal; eternal.

And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. (Genesis:4:25)

Adam knew his wife again. This time there is no properly to {come} that {is} (impliedly) to assent: – consent, in the sense of appearing.

Or

A signal (literally or {figuratively}) as a {flag} beacon; {monument} omen {prodigy}.

Or

Evidence etc.: – {mark} {miracle} (end-) {sign} token.

Or

Sense of entity; properly self.

There is just; Adam knew his wife like you and I know our feet.

Eve bare a son like any other “Woman” bare a son, with one exception!

Eve having been taken from the extant, eternal part of the “Man” created in the image and likenesses of God and then made into a “Woman,” gave her an unique ability.

Eve gave birth to an immortal being (Cain) and two mortal beings. (Abel and Seth)

Wow!

And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living. (Genesis:3:20)

Eve conceived and bare Cain who is a “Man.” (to be extant; a man as an individual or a male person).

A son of God or as Eve put it, “I have gotten a man from the LORD.”

And,

Eve conceived and bare Abel, who was a “Man; properly a mortal (and thus differing from the more dignified “Man” created in the image and likenesses of God; hence a man in general {singly or collectively}), who Cain slew.

And,

Since Cain “Murdered” Abel, Eve bare Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. (Genesis:4:25)

The name Seth means; put that {is} substituted.

Substituted for Abel, just like Eve said.

And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD. (Genesis:4:26)

I have been taught that calling on the name of the LORD is a good thing.

Not according to the Strong’s Concordance.

Began – properly to be rubbed or worn; hence (figuratively) to be {weak} sick.
properly to twist or whirl (in a circular or spiral {manner}) that {is} (specifically) to {dance} to writhe in pain.

properly to {bore} that {is} (by implication) to {wound} to dissolve; figuratively to

profane (a {person} place or {thing}) to break (one´ s {word}) to begin (as if by an opening-wedge).

Does any of the above sound like a good thing?

It’s important to note that these men born to Seth were sons of God, but they were “Mortal,” where as Cain’s sons are immortal, which explains why Seth’s sons began “Calling on the name of the LORD!”

These are the members of one of the “Two Families.”

They are “Adam’s” the one created in the image and likenesses of God or the “LORD’s,” according to Eve.

Whichever they are, they are not “Adam’s,” the “Man” formed of the dust of the ground’s.

“The Two Families”
Part 2

Genesis:2:25

And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

The “Man” in this verse is the man created in the image and likeness of God. The “Wife” is that part which, when the “Man” left his father and mother he cleaved to his wife and they became one flesh. (Genesis:2:24)

The “Author” does this thing at the end of chapters that I find interesting.

For instance, at the end of chapter one the Author is talking to the “Species” called “Man.” The Author is instructing “Man” on what to eat and what-not.

Then:

In the beginning of chapter two the “Author” says, “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.” (Genesis:2:5)

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

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. (Genesis:2:7)

Wasn’t plants and herbs and beasts and creeping things and “Man”on the Earth in chapter one?

This seemingly contradiction has made a lot of scholars come up with some incredible theories about when and what was being said about “Man,” like:

Chapter 1 may be understood as creation from God’s perspective; it is ‘the big picture’, an overview of the whole. Chapter 2 views the more important aspects from man’s perspective.

Wrong!

We are talking Realms here folks.

Two different realms of reality.

The “Man” created in the image and likenesses of God In chapter one of Genesis as well as that “World” is a product of “Pure Consciousness.” (Realm #1)

Create: Bring (something) into existence.

The “Man” formed of the dust of the ground, who eventually becomes one of us; a living, breathing, bleeding human being, is what we human beings today experience as reality. ( Realm #2)

Here in chapter two, the “Man” is only “Dust.” The phrase, “Bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh,” is just a “Figure of Speech.”

Make: Form (something) by putting parts together or combining substances; construct; create.

Make: Alter something so that it forms or constitutes (something else).

Like changing the dust of the ground into a “Living Soul.”

And again at the end of chapter two verses twenty-two through twenty-five, the “Author” is talking about the “Man” created in the image and likenesses of God and his “Wife.”

In chapter three verse one the serpent is talking to the “Man” formed of the dust of the ground’s “Wife.”

Genesis:3:1
Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

Genesis:3:2
And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

Genesis:3:3
But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

Genesis:3:4
And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

Genesis:3:5
For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

Genesis:3:6
And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

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

The “Woman” in Genesis chapter three verses one through seven is the “Wife” of the “Man” formed of the dust of the ground.

As is the Author’s literary style of writing, the use of Homographs and Symptoms in chapter three is exceptional and mysterious.

Woman, wife, one, married and female all have the same meaning!

“Woman” is also the name of a “Species.”

If not for the technology of today, one would find it very difficult to figure out; who said what; who did what, etc, etc, etc…

Why is this important?

The first thing that comes to my mind is, “Why in the world would Adam eat from the “Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil” just because the woman ate from it?!

Genesis:3:12
And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.

Genesis:3:13
And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.

Genesis:3:14
And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:

Genesis:3:15
And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Genesis:3:16
Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

The “Woman” in Genesis chapter three verses twelve through sixteen is the woman who was taken out of “Man.”

The one whom 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.” (Genesis:2:23)

The “Adam” here in Genesis chapter two verse twenty three is the “Man” created in the image and likenesses of God.

If the words Woman, wife, one, married and female all have the same meaning, and Woman is also the name of a Species,

And,

The word “Man” is the name of a “Species, an individual: One “Created in the image and likenesses of God and another one is formed of the dust of the ground, how can you tell who, what, when, how, why and where?

The only answer I can give is this:

You have to do the research.
You have to get to know the Author’s style of writing.
You have to pay close attention to detail.

Most important, “You have to QUESTION every single word and phrase!

For example:

The two women can be distinguished by using the verses before and after the verse that mention a “Woman.”

The same way you use the words and paragraphs surrounding a word to define or get the meaning of some unfamiliar word in English.

Like the “Woman” being written about at the end of chapter two in verse twenty-five, is there any question that the woman is the wife taken out of the “Adam” created in the image and likenesses of God?

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. (Genesis:2:23)

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

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

Pretty obvious, right?

What about chapter three of Genesis verses one through seven?

How do we know the “Woman” there is the “Wife” of the “Man” formed from the dust of the ground?

What about chapter three of Genesis verses twelve through sixteen?

How do we know the “Woman” there is the “Wife” of the “Man” created in the image and likenesses of God?

Let’s take a look at Genesis chapter three verses one through seven first.

The serpent asks the “Woman” a question, “Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” (Genesis:3:1)

The “Woman” answered, “We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: (Genesis:3:2)

But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.” (Genesis:3:3)

The “Woman” answered correctly.

And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: (Genesis:2:16)

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. (Genesis:2:17)

I want to make two points:
• This “Woman” was there with the “Man” when God commanded him not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and Evil.
• The “Woman” who was taken out of “Man,” the “Wife” of Adam, the “Man created in the image and likenesses of God,” wasn’t taken out of “Man” until Genesis chapter two verse twenty three.

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. (Genesis:2:23)

Remember when I said that there are other reasons why I believe God created “Man” with two sexes, both male and female?

Here is another reason.

Genesis:3:6
And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

Genesis:3:12

And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.

The ‘Woman” in Genesis chapter three verse six took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

I wrestled with this one for a while. I kept asking myself, “and gave also unto her husband with her?

What the f*%k does that mean?

I got stuck, for months! I couldn’t figure it out. I couldn’t get it out of my head, so I said,

“F*%k it, I ‘ll come back to it later!

Two years later, ten chapters written which I was unhappy with, so I started over, I finally got the answer.

In Genesis chapter three verses eleven and twelve:

And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? (Genesis:3:11)

And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. (Genesis:3:12)

The Author of Genesis phrased the words in such a way as to make the reader believe or assume, you choose, that the “Woman” in Genesis chapter three verse six and the “Woman” in Genesis chapter three verse twelve is the same “Woman!”

For “CENTURIES” the preachers and teachers of the Holy Bible have been mistaken.

One “Woman” was “WITH” her “Man,” as in, “Together,” as in “One Flesh!”

The other “Woman” was “GIVEN” to her “Man” as in, “Separate,” as in “Two Persons!”

Two “Adams:” Two “Women:” Two “Families,” if only it was that simple…

The Relevance of The Holy Bible Today

“The Two Families”
Part 1
The book of Genesis is written metaphorically.
Nothing is as it seems!
Eve is not Adam’s wife.
I know Adam called his wife’s name Eve because she was the mother of all living.
I know what you have been taught.
Adam and Eve was this happy couple living care free in a wonderful garden, eating till their hearts content of the delicious fruit of the trees.
I’m telling you, it’s just not true, at least not in the way that most people on this planet think.
The Adam and Eve story was written by an entity of far greater intelligence than any human being on Earth.
The truly amazing thing is that, thousands of years after its writing, with the help of modern technology, the book  of Genesis when reverse translated tell the story of two worlds!
I’m not one to take different scriptures from different books or letters of the bible and put them together to make my own interpretation of the bible appear “Inspired.”
I will point out different scriptures in the same book, keeping in mind that the words and story line are meant to follow one another in a logical manner.
They have to make sense on there own!
The book of Genesis is a “Literary Masterpiece.”
Take these next eight scriptures for example.
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.
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.
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.
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;
2:22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
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.
2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
2:25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
Whenever the Author of Genesis repeats a phrase it’s the same as saying, “Pay Special Attention To This!
In Genesis chapter two verse eighteen it reads:
And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
In Genesis chapter two verse twenty it reads:
“But for Adam there was not found a help meet for him.”
Notice that the Author wrote, “I will make him an help meet for him” and “But for Adam there was not found a help meet for him,” that means help meet is important.
In Genesis chapter two verse twenty one it reads:
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;
The Adam in Genesis chapter two verse twenty one is an individual formed from the dust of the ground.
This Adam is the father of every human being living today.
The Author made a “Help Meet” seem like something that came out of Adam the individual formed from the dust of the ground, didn’t it?
I wrote “didn’t it” because I don’t believe the book of Genesis was written by a human being!
A “Help Meet,” according to the Strong’s Concordance is an “Aid.” It means: To surround or protect. – aid.
The Adam in verse twenty is the man created in God’s image and likenesses.
The Author used Homographs to make you think that Genesis chapter two verses eighteen through twenty-five are talking about the same man, Adam.
The Author is writing about the “Adam created in God’s image in verses twenty two and twenty three.
In verses twenty four and twenty five of Genesis chapter two, the Man is a totally new character.
It is neither Adam who was created in the image and likeness of God or Adam who was formed of the dust of the ground, but an extant element of the Adam created in the image and likenesses of God.
On the surface it looks like the help meet, the rib and the woman are one and the same.
On the surface it looks like the rib that was taken out of Adam the individual who was formed of the dust of the ground was made into a woman and bought to Adam the individual formed of the dust of the ground who then said, “This is now bone if my bone and flesh of my flesh.”
Wrong!
Remember when I said that the man created in the image and likenesses of God as well as the man formed from the dust of the ground  in the beginning, didn’t look anything like we humans look today?
That’s because of this “Help Meet.”
In Genesis chapter one verse twenty six and twenty seven it reads:
1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…
1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
The “Man” in both of these verses is the man created in the image and likenesses of God.
What is being said about the “Man” created in the image and likenesses of God can be taken one of two ways.
Either God had “company” and is telling that someone, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness,” and then in verse twenty seven changed his mind and made man in his image, only,
or
God was talking to himself, aware of his female side, created “Man” with a male and female side like himself.
I choose the latter.
“Man” in chapter one is “Pure Consciousness:”
Male means “Remembered” and “Female” (from the sexual form):- {female} woman.
Of course there are  other reasons I believe that in the beginning “Man” was both male and female and those reasons will become clear soon.
Pay very close attention to what Adam says here in Genesis chapter two verse twenty three.
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.
Here is another shining example of the Author’s literary “genius!”
The word bone means: a bone (as strong); by extension the body; figuratively the {substance} that {is} (as pronoun) selfsame.
The word flesh means: Flesh (from its freshness); by extension {body} person; also (by euphemism) the pudenda of a man.
On the surface the Author describes what a flesh and blood human being looks like now.
The Author also made it sound and look like Adam the individual formed from the dust of the ground is the one talking when in fact, it’s Adam the man created in God’s image and likenesses who is talking.
The Author then makes it look and sound like the “Man” that the Woman was taken out of is Adam the individual formed from the dust of the ground, but it’s really the Adam created in God’s image and likenesses.
The “Man” who the “Woman” was actually taken out of is a completely different “Man!”
Where did this “Man” come from?
The “Man” that the “Woman” was taken from is not a “man” like either the “Man” created in the image and likenesses of God or the “Man” formed of the dust of the ground.
This “Man” is half of whatever the man created in the image and likenesses of God is made of.
Since God made them male and female, this “Man” must be male.
The meaning of this “Man” is to be extant; a man as an individual or male person.
Since this “Man” is not a whole man, but half of “Man” created in the image and likenesses of God, it must be the first part of the definition: to be “Extant.”
Extant means: still in existence; surviving.
If the “Man” that the Woman was taken out of is only half of the “Man” in the image and likenesses of God, then the other half or female half must be that “Help Meet.”
Remember “Help Meet,” according to the Strong’s Concordance is an “Aid.” It means: To surround or protect. – aid.
The “Man” created in the image and likenesses of God is extant which in my mind means, like God he’s eternal.
When I read 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.
I get a picture in my mind of an Amoeba.
An extant, eternal middle with a “Help Meet,” protective outer barrier.
When I read something that I find hard to believe, my first inclination is to prove it wrong.
When I read in Genesis chapter one, “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them,” I thought, “I must be reading this incorrectly!”
Metaphorically speaking, Genesis chapter two verse twenty four spells it out.
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.
God and the Man created in God’s image and likenesses are both Male and Female!
Here are the Hebrew definitions of the words in this scripture:
Father – a father in a literal and {immediate} or figurative and remote application:- chief.
Mother – a mother (as the bond of the family); in a wide sense (both literally and figuratively).
Cleave – A primitive root; properly to {impinge} that {is} cling or adhere; figuratively to catch by pursuit.
Wife – The first form is the feminine of “Man” (extant individual or male person)
 or “man;” a mortal (and thus differing from the more dignified “man:”  ruddy} that {is} a human being (an individual or the {species} {mankind } etc.): hence a man in general (singly or collectively).
One – {united} that {is} one.
Flesh – flesh (from its freshness); by extension {body} person.
Let’s just say that everything described is true.
Imagine this:  A “Man” leaves his father, who is the center and his mother, who is the outer protective barrier and cleaves to his wife, who is some of his mother’s protective barrier and the “Man” and his wife, protective barrier, become one flesh, body or person.
I’m just saying.
So, we have two Adams:
Adam created in the image and likenesses of God and Adam formed of the dust of the ground.
Genesis: 2:22
And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
The “Man here is the one created in the image and likenesses of God.
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.
The rib was taken out of the “extant;” God like, eternal element of the Man who was created in the image and likenesses of God.
The rib was then, “made into a Woman.”
To have taken the “eternal element” of “Man” and then make it into a Woman is huge!
God is both male and female: Man is both male and female: The Woman is “Man,” or the essence of “Man” made into “Female” and female?
Very interesting…

“Why We (Humans) Do What We Do”

I know what you must be thinking, “So… What? The world is filled with murder because Cain killed Abel?”

The answer is yes, and, not really.

It would be strange, even for a son of God, to just up and murder someone for no good reason. Especially, if that someone is a relative.

Well, not really. Let’s just say there was a reason.

I’m aware of what you’ve been taught. You’ve been taught, “Cain killed Abel because he was jealous.”

Why on earth or even in heaven would Cain be jealous of Abel?

Cain’s the son of God! The son of God is going to be jealous of a Shepherd?

I don’t think so!

Then, what was it? Was it something that he ate?

It wasn’t something that Cain ate, it was something that his Mother ate.

That’s not much of a legal defense I’ll admit.

“What my mother ate when she was carrying me made me do it!”

There was somewhat of a motive, but before we get to the motive for Cain killing Abel, we have to go back a bit.

We have to go back to Adam and Eve.

If you haven’t figured it out yet, the Adam and Eve story that you were taught by the “Want to Be Called by God” preachers, is not the story I’m going to tell.

This story is about at least two Adams and at least two Women, one of those women is named Eve and a Serpent.

You might want to re-read chapters two and three of Genesis before going on.

What I’m about to tell you is going to challenge your belief system.

“Don’t shoot the messenger!”

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.

1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

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.

The “Man” in Genesis chapter one verses twenty six through twenty eight is referring to the “Species;” Man.

The species man is made in God’s image, after God’s likeness.

The species man is “pure consciousness.”

The species man consists of two elements; a female element and a male element.

The species man has dominion over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

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.

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

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 species “man” was put into a body of “Dust.”

The species “man” consists of two elements; one female element and one male element.

“Man” is now “pure consciousness” in a body made of dust.

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

2:16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

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.

The species “man” in his body of dust was put into the garden of Eden and instructed NOT to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, “For in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die!”

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;

Remember, I said that this story of Adam and Eve was about at least two Adams? Well, the Adam in Genesis chapter two verse twenty one is the second Adam.

The name Adam means: ‘adam aw-dam’ to show blood (in the face), i.e. flush or turn rosy: ruddy i.e. a human being (an individual or the species, mankind, etc.)

Noticed anything? Homograph? Not really, but close!

The word Adam is a homograph because it means an individual or the species. It’s also the name of a species and the name of an individual!

Man is a homograph because it can mean an individual or the species.

What do you call two words that mean the same thing, but spelled different?

Synonyms!

“Adam” and “Man” are synonyms, which the Author of Genesis use so well that if you are not very careful, you will totally misinterpret the text as well as the subject of the text.

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.

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.

The “Adam” in Genesis chapter two verses nineteen through twenty is the species man: “Pure consciousness” in a body formed of the dust of the ground.

This “Adam” is the first Adam: “The Species named Adam.”

2:22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

So, Genesis chapter two verse twenty two should be read: And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from (the species) man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the “species” man.

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.

The Adam in Genesis chapter two verse twenty three is also the “species.” He says, “This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: She shall be called Woman, because she was taken from “Man.”

This “Man” that “Woman” was taken out of is another “Man!”

A homograph, but not a synonym.

This “Man” means: To be extant; a man as an individual or a male person.

This “Man” is not a species.

This “Man” can only be “One” Man.

This “Man” is an example of every individual in the species, who consists of a “female” element and a “male” element.

This “Man” is the MALE ELEMENT.

When 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.”

He was speaking about the male half of himself.

I keep saying the same thing over and over because I want you to remember. In the beginning, the “Species” man as well as the “Individual” man looked nothing like we human beings look today. Okay?

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

Genesis chapter two verse twenty four should be read:

“Therefore shall an extant male element (Man) leave God (its father and mother and cleave unto its female element: and they shall be one: like God: A god.6

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

I had to take you through all of that in order to get your mind in the right place.

The Adam and Eve story is much more than what is realized on the surface. It explains in detail why we humans do what we do.

It’s not just about disobedience, which has been the sermon for CENTURIES. It’s about our psychological and physiological history.

Before we were “mortal” we were gods.

Adam and Eve are still gods.

Anyway:

3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

3:2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

3:3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die

3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

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

In Genesis chapter three verses one through seven there is a lot going on.

I don’t know what you’ve been told, yes I do. You’ve been told that the serpent in this story is the original Satan.

I imagine that some preacher thought by telling you that the serpent was the original Satan would be better than trying to explain to you, “How is it possible for a serpent to talk?”

Well, in this story; in Hebrew and in English; in whatever language you choose, the serpent is talking.

When I looked up the word serpent in the Strong’s Concordance I was totally surprised to find out, not only was a serpent talking, it was, “Prognosticating!”

The meaning of serpent is from a word that means; to {hiss} that {is} whisper a (magic) spell; generally to prognosticate: A snake (from its hiss).

Prognosticate means: to forecast or predict (something future) from present indications or signs; prophecy .

The serpent wasn’t Satan. The serpent was a Prophet?!

Shocking, isn’t it!

Now, you have to ask yourself several questions, Didn’t God say to the man in Genesis chapter two verses sixteen and seventeen:

2:16 “And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

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?”

“If God said, “For in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die, why didn’t they die?”

Why would Adam eat from the tree that God commanded him not to eat from, knowing he would die?

Where was the woman when God told the “Man” not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil?

I could go on and on, but this post is about, “Why We (Humans Do What We Do).

In a “Nut Shell,” we do what we do because like the serpent said:

“For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”

Regardless of what you believe about the Bible, the stories in the bible are designed to impart “Truths” about humanity.

The fact that the stories in the bible have been told for thousands of years to generation after generation speaks to our psychology (conscious and subconscious minds) and physiology (physical and spiritual worlds) in ways we are more than likely, unaware of.

Whether the “Knowledge of Good and Evil” came from a tree, a bush or a bubbling brook, being in possession of it created something inside us that our creators tried to warn our ancient ancestors about.

Why do we humans do “ALL” of what we do? It’s because of “Emotions!”

As to why Cain killed Abel, it could have been jealously. I mean his father (God) showed favor to a mere mortal over his own son.

But, if you want to stick to the theory that the Author of Genesis took the names of the characters and weaved a story around the meanings of those names, I’d decern that Abel (which means; emptiness or vanity; figuratively something transitory and unsatisfactory) teased Cain. (which means; a lance (as striking fast))

Since Cain’s mother (Eve) ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and Evil and was full of emotions while carrying her son, Cain was also full of emotions.

Cain killed Abel because he simply got angry. Since we know that anger is a secondary emotion, Cain was probably hurt by his father’s rejection.

If “Man” or anyone else was a “kid” of mine, and I knew of something that was harmful, like the knowledge of Good and Evil, I would have “Child Proofed” the tree!

First time parents, you got to love them…

The Relevance of the Holy Bible Today

“Why We (Humans) Do What We Do”

I will get into how God, Eve, Cain and Abel are all related later, but for now I want to talk about the sons of God or the children of God and how even today, they are responsible for, “The Way the World Is.”

The Author of Genesis uses a lot of literary devices, (miraculously so) to tell stories that are meant to teach.

One device used throughout the bible is to give a character a name with a meaning and then use that meaning to “Weave” a story around it.

Another device, which is used in the “Book of Genesis” extensively, is called a Homograph. Homographs are words that are used in such a manner as to give two or more different meanings, where the words have the same spelling, but different meanings, and sometimes different pronunciations.

A good example of homographs are the names ‘Adam and Eve.”

Adam means; ruddy or to show blood (in the {face}); is the name of an individual and is the name of a species called Man.

Eve is the name of a Woman.

The word Eve means to live and it also means; “Life Giver.”

With that in mind, let’s get back to, “Why We (humans) Do What We Do.”

God has “Sons.” The word son means; (a builder of the family {name}) in the widest sense (of literal and figurative {relationship} including {grandson}.

Cain is God’s first born.

When Eve said, “I have gotten a man from the LORD.” She meant, she had gotten a MAN from the LORD.

We’ll talk about that later.

If you need to refresh your memory about the Cain and Abel story open your bible to Genesis, chapter four.

The Author of Genesis took the meanings of Cain’s and Abel’s names and “weaved” a story around them.

The name Cain means; to strike a musical {note} that {is} chant or wail (at a funeral): – {lament}. And, in the original sense of fixity; a lance (as striking fast): – spear.

The name Abel means; emptiness or vanity; figuratively something transitory and unsatisfactory.

I don’t know what to call it, but the Author of Genesis uses yet another literary device which tells one story on the surface, but a different story beneath the surface.

He does this masterfully by using words from the Hebrew language that when translated make perfect sense in the English language! (Amazing)

And so, the story goes like this:

Eve conceived and bare Cain. She said, “I have gotten a man from the LORD.”

Notice that the word LORD is in all capital letters.

She again bare his brother Abel.

When Eve bare Cain, the word “bare” has two meanings. When she “bare” Abel, the word “bare” only has one meaning.

Both Cain and Abel have the “bare” that means; to bear young; beget.

Cain’s extra “bare” has the “SAME” meaning as when God “CREATED” the heaven and the earth!

(In the sense of appearing; a signal (literally or figuratively); miracle.)

Remember, I said that heaven and the earth could be considered “Children of God?” This is why.

Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain a tiller of the ground. And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD.

And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering:

But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, (intensely angry, highly incensed, wrathful) and his countenance (facial expression) fell.

Here, on the surface this is a story of two brothers with two different occupations. Their father (The LORD) is showing favor to Abel, creating the first-ever, “Sibling Rivalry!”

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.

Murder, murder, murder, what we have here is the first murder!

Worst parenting ever, wouldn’t you say?

The LORD proceeds to prescribe a punishment for Cain for killing his step brother Abel.

Cain whines about how too harsh a punishment he was being given, so the LORD does this:

And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.

We are going to stop here. Here is where the point to this post is.

For CENTURIES, whenever this story has been told the “assumption” has been that the LORD merely stopped anyone from killing Cain.

The “TRUTH” is, like God, Cain and all his descendants are eternal. That’s right, they live forever.

This life form, like God, is “Pure Consciousness.”

Consciousness that permeates our world.

Murder and vanity as is the case with Cain and Abel, are only two of the many toxic “pure conscious” elements floating around up there in the Heavens as well as down here on the Earth.

Our attitudes and behaviors today have their origins from the attitudes and behaviors of life forms from the distant pass.

We as humans do what we do because God, “Pure Consciousness” and the sons of God, “Pure Consciousness” did what they did.

You ever heard the expression, “You are what you eat?  We didn’t eat the god’s bad attitudes and behaviors, we weren’t even there!

But, someone ate something!
