Was There an 8th Day of Creation?

Posted in 02 : The Truth Is Out There... with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 03/12/2011 by timenolonger

For most who read and believe scripture, the account of creation in Genesis is understood to have taken place in six days, the seventh day being that one which was set apart as a day of rest from all that YHWH made.

There are, however, some who do not believe that creation ceased on day six, but proceeded to day eight on which Adam, who is normally thought of as the first man, was created.

Those who have this view do not consider Adam and Eve to have been the first humans on Earth, but rather believe that those who were made on day six were a separate creation of human/ humanoid beings.

Often it is explained in terms of these first ones having been all the various races minus that one which was chosen to bring forth Messiah, who was Adam, created on day eight.

It would not be wise to choose either view simply on how the information impresses one at first thought.

Neither adhering to the more well accepted sixth day creation because of tradition, nor adopting the eight day view because of its novelty are good foundations for a clear answer.

Perhaps many who choose either one, having encountered both, do so on the grounds of one of those two reasons, but all interpretation should be tested thoroughly.

Support for the belief in an eighth day creation for Adam are often the following:

1. There is a clear distinction in the telling of the sixth day “humans” and the later telling of the creation of Adam. (Genesis 1 and Genesis 2)

2. The first people were created “in His image” both male and female, rather than Adam who was created alone (and androgynous) and later had a wife made for him out of his own flesh.

3. The first people were created, while Adam was “formed” out of the ground

4. There is a correlation between the first people created and the “beast of the earth” created on the sixth day.

5. The creation of the “eighth day” is evident in the pattern for all of human history – 7,000 years followed by the “eighth day” of the new creation.

6. The “breath of life” breathed into Adam is synonymous with a soul or spirit which the first created people did not have. The first people had YHWH’s likeness, the second had His spirit.

7. Cain mentioned “everyone” who found him would kill him for his crime against Abel and the only explanation for those others is that there were people created prior to Adam and Eve.

8. Cain found a wife and this wife must have been one of those of the people who had been made before Adam and Eve.

Knowing whether or not these points are a good support for the theory means addressing each one in the context of scripture, demanding that scripture make a probable, not just possible case for it.

The same is true of the conventional understanding. His word is not given in a way that requires us to guess. In the end, all correct interpretations will be those which add up to the simplest and most comprehensible answer according to literal language.

One Act or Two?

In Genesis chapter 1 there is a chronological description of creation, describing each day and what was made on that day. The first day describes the creation of the Earth, light, day and night. On the second day was the creation of the firmament of heaven. On the third day, dry land was made to appear and created plant life. On day four were the luminaries of heaven made, the stars, sun and moon. On day five were made sea creatures and birds. On day six, land animals were made, reptiles, mammals and finally people.

“Then ‘Elohiym said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind. Cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth according to its kind,” and it was so.

And ‘Elohiym made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind, and ‘Elohiym saw that it was good.

Then ‘Elohiym said, “Let Us make mankind in Our image, according to Our likeness. Let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

So ‘Elohiym created the man in His image, in the image of ‘Elohiym He created him, male and female He created them.”

– Genesis 1:24-27

The seventh day is then set apart for rest from all these things YHWH made, but after the description of the seventh day comes another telling of the creation of humans.

“And Yahuwah ‘Elohiym formed the man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and the man became a living creature.

Yahuwah ‘Elohiym planted a garden eastward in ‘Eden and there He put the man whom He had formed”.

– Genesis 2:7, 8

Is this a continuation of the account proceeding in chronological order to the eighth day? There are two points which seriously hinder this being probable.

All other days described before this are done in such a precise way as to pointedly mention the beginning and ending of each “the evening and the morning” as in: “So the evening and the morning were Day One.”, also giving each day aclear number.

This is absent for an eighth day. There is no mention of an evening and a morning encompassing a certain day on which this occurred, nor is there any mention of “day eight”.

The second hindrance is an even more difficult one to justify. The proclamation of the end of the sixth day reads like this:

Thus the heavens and the earth and all (kol: whole, all, any every) the host of them were finished (kalah: end, to be finished, ceased). – Genesis 2:1

There is a clear statement that all things had been made at this point and that following this was cessation from the act of creation.

In His Image: Created or Formed?

Is there an indication that the first account describes a simultaneous “creation” of man and woman while the second describes a process of “forming” Adam alone from the clay?

The first account reads as follows:

“So ‘Elohiym created (bara: create) the man (adam) in His image, in the image of ‘Elohiym He created him, male and female He created (bara:create) them.”

– Genesis 1:27

Here there is the word “bara” which is pointed out as differing from the word used in the “forming” of Adam in Genesis 2:

“And Yahuwah ‘Elohiym formed (yatsar: mold, squeeze) the man (adam) of the dust of the ground”

– Genesis 2:7

If there is a point being made here referencing a different mode of creation employed between the first and second humans, it should by all means remain consistent. It is, however, not the case.

In Genesis 4 is the account of the birth of Seth, who is born in replacement of the slain Abel. We must be assured that Seth was the son of Adam and Eve, this being repeated throughout scripture many times, not the son of an earlier creation of humans.

Following this account is the use of the word “bara” (create) in reference to Adam and Eve as well as a reference to their creation “in His image”.

“And ‘Adam knew his wife again and she bare a son and called his name Sheth, “For ‘Elohiym,” she said, “has appointed me another seed instead of ‘Hebel whom Qayin slew.”

And to Sheth, to him also there was born a son and he called his name ‘Enowsh. Then men began to call upon the name of Yahuwah.

This is the book of the generations of man (adam) in the day that ‘Elohiym created mankind.

In the likeness of ‘Elohiym He made him, male and female He created (bara) them and blessed them and called their name ‘Adam in the day when they were created.”

– Genesis 4: 25, 26, Genesis 5:1, 2

Beast of the Earth connected to First Humans?

It is often believed among those who support an 8th day creation that the description of the creation of the “beast of the Earth” in Genesis is synonymous with those first humans created prior to Adam. This is also, many times, connected with the Beast of the Earth mentioned in Revelation.

Scripture gives the account of the creation of the “beast of the Earth” in Genesis like this:

“And ‘Elohiym made the beast (chay: life,living) of the earth according to its kind, cattle (behemah) according to its kind, and everything that creeps (remes:reptile) on the earth according to its kind, and ‘Elohiym saw that it was good. .”

– Genesis 1:25

There is perhaps little to be said of this as any connection to the creation of human or humanlike creatures. The word “chay” preceding a list of animals which were made on the sixth day could only logically be a collective statement before a more detailed list. It is not a word which is specific to any certain sort of living creature.

Where this connection is usually made, it is included within a doctrine that strongly supports the idea of a superior race and lesser peoples who are made fundamentally different by the manner of their creation.

It is often found in Christian identity and British Israelism cults and follows the ages old tradition of an idea which began in the rulership of nephilim over weaker humans.

Turned upside down, this idea is given a Christian face with which to tempt the pride of believers and alienate various ethnic groups from Christianity.

Is the Future New Heaven and Earth created on an “eighth day”?

It is said that one day is equal to a thousand years in the eyes of YHWH and though the precise days of creation are given in terms of 24 hour intervals, the whole of human history might be sensibly mapped out over a week of millennia.

It is completed, therefor, in the same time construct as the act of creation. It is theorized that if Adam was the new creation of the eighth day, his creation coincides with the new heaven and new earth to be created after the thousand year Sabbath of Messiah’s reign.

The difficulty with this idea is that the model we have been given to observe has no day eight. We are shown a seven day cycle, the last day of which is Sabbath and the following day is not day eight, but day one.

The concept of a day eight in the cycle is only applicable within an occult context where there is an emphasis on day eight being the day of the phoenix, the rebirth, the new age.

Sabbath, by it’s very nature, is special because it is the final touch on creation, it is the moment where the labors are enjoyed instead of toiled over, it is the sum reward of all things worked for.

When the millennial reign of Messiah ends, we should not expect and eternal rotation of the same patterns of time we now have. By being a new creation, even time itself will not be measurable by any present concept of it, that also, will be new. There can be no day eight in a new creation as eight proceeds from the prior series of numbers1-7 and is not, by definition, new.

Did Elohim impart His spirit to Adam but not to the first humans?

In Genesis 1:26 it is said that “man” is made in His image:

“Then ‘Elohiym said, “Let Us make mankind in Our image, according to Our likeness. Let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

– Genesis 1:26

The later account describes the formation of Adam and how he became a living being:

“And Yahuwah ‘Elohiym formed the man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and the man became a living creature.”

– Genesis 2:7

It is believed by many who see these as separate creations that this describes the difference between those first humans and Adam. While the first received the physical likeness of their maker, the second received His Spirit, indicated by the words “breath of life”.

The phrase “breath of life” and “living soul” is understood in this belief to refer to life in a spiritual or eternal sense. The words themselves, though, do not indicate a special or eternal sort of life which was exclusively given to Adam, but rather an animating force which is applicable to all things which live and breathe.

“And Yahuwah ‘Elohiym formed (yatsar: mold, squeeze) the man (adam) of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath (n’shamah: puff, wind, breath) of life (chay:life,living) and the man (adam) became a living (chay) soul (nephesh: breathing, living creature).

Yahuwah ‘Elohiym planted a garden eastward in ‘Eden and there He put the man (adam) whom He had formed (yatsar).”

– Genesis 2:7,8

Here “chay” is used, just as it is used earlier in Genesis to describe the sort of life which animals have. The word “nephesh”, which is often translated as “soul” cannot be understood in the sense of what people normally think of as a soul. It, also, is used to describe a creature, any creature, who is living and breathing as shown here:

“So ‘Elohiym created great sea creatures and every living thing (nephesh) that moves, with which the waters abounded according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind, and ‘Elohiym saw that it was good.”

– Genesis 1:21

Was the “everyone” Cain was afraid of an indication of multitudes of humans made before Adam?

Cain made this well known statement when he was cursed by YHWH to become a vagabond for the murder of his brother:

“And Qayin said to Yahuwah, “My punishment is greater than I can bear!
Surely You have driven me out this day from the face of the ground.

I shall be hidden from Your face. I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond on the earth and it will happen that anyone who finds me will kill me.”

– Genesis 4:13, 14

Anyone or “every one”, as it is given in the KJV, is seen as indicating a great number of people. That indication is not literally present, but thought to implied by the way it is often used in the context of the English language.

The word is translated from “kol” which properly means, any, all or every. It does not indicate a number, either few or many, but simply describes any or every of whatever certain group is in question. It would make as much sense if Adam and Eve were the only two others as much as it would if there were multitudes of others.

Jubilees is a helpful text in considering the theory of the eighth day creation as a whole and it gives a good idea of how many people were on earth as produced through Adam and Eve at the time of this event.

Without including possible grandchildren, there would have been approximately eleven children of Adam and Eve alive at the time conservatively. All of these would perhaps feel justified in seeking due vengeance for their brother’s murder.

“And in the third week in the second jubilee she gave birth to Cain, and in the fourth she gave birth to Abel, and in the fifth she gave birth to her daughter Âwân.

And in the first (year) of the third jubilee, Cain slew Abel because (God) accepted the sacrifice of Abel, and did not accept the offering of Cain”

– Jubilees 4:1, 2

Where did Cain find a wife?

It is often pointed out that Cain could not have gotten a wife anywhere if there had not been “other” humans present who were not of his own parents. There is no reason to assume this, however.

The command against incest had not yet been given, and for a good reason, all who were available for marriage in the beginnings were siblings. Jubilees also offers insight to Cain’s wife:

“And Cain took ’Âwân his sister to be his wife and she bare him Enoch at the close of the fourth jubilee. And in the first year of the first week of the fifth jubilee, houses were built on the earth, and Cain built a city, and called its name after the name of his son Enoch.”

– Jubilees 4:9

The introduction of the theory of two creations of mankind is an important indicator of the motive, reasoning and philosophy behind it.

If it were intended as the interpretation we should receive from His word, its teaching should bear the fruit of that and be identifiable in both ancient Judaism (before Babylon) as well as the early Christian church.

Where it has sprung up, though is not in either of these places, but in the mind of a Jewish man who lived in Alexandria and who was much more a student of Greek pagan philosophy than Judaism.

Philo of Alexandria was known for his writings which attempted to meld together traditional Judaism and Greek philosophy.

It is an attempt which is not unlike the goal the Catholic church worked toward in melding together Christianity and pagan religious systems.

He interpreted nothing in scripture as literally true, but believed in a symbolic and allegoric interpretation which in essence means nothing, as no symbol is meaningful without a clear object or truth which it symbolizes.

If YHWH meant to give us riddles which only a few could understand, why then can we easily recognize the message present in His word that demonstrates how He uses simplicity and lowliness rather than worldly wisdom and high estate?

“Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have ordained strength because of Your enemies that You may silence the enemy and the avenger”.

-Psalm 8:2

Philo sought to”reveal” a cryptic and hidden meaning in the bible which was not there, the same snare which continually draws believers, even today, down a path of speculation which inevitably draws ever nearer a pagan religious system and away from a truth YHWH plainly gave.

One of these cryptic meanings he revealed to his followers was the theory of an eighth day creation, stating that the first men were made in a perishable physical image of their maker but the second were created as creatures with His spirit.

The very theory that makes it’s appearance in the beliefs of many seeking Christians today originated in a man who taught concepts which were derived out of Greek Mystery Religions.

We have a Creator who has given us a perfect representation of truth in a most logical, most common sense way. and I have never known anything written to have made as much sense as His word does when read just as it reads.

It is the persistent Author of Confusion, Satan, who seeks to make what was simple into something complicated, knotted and difficult to follow. There might be no better general rule of reading His word than “if it is not said, it was not meant.”.

Kabbalah: Seeking Truth or a Worthless Mystery

Posted in 02 : The Truth Is Out There... with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 12/02/2010 by timenolonger

Hidden mysteries, secret knowledge and higher spiritual wisdom are very attractive concepts to many people.

There is a sense in many individuals that the current generation of the world has been deprived of information relating to spiritual truths, and so anything which both satisfies the excitement of possessing hidden spiritual knowledge and seems to fill in many gaps left by traditional views, is easily accepted.

Nothing exists in a non Christian’s world view which contradicts exploring spiritualism that is occult.

Ensnaring the non believer in veiled Luciferian doctrine is no challenge, but for the believer it should be evident what conflicts scriptural morality have with these same concepts.

Still, the enemy is not lazy and there is an outlet for occult practices which bears enough of a resemblance to Christianity or biblical themes to lure the untrained or unguarded believer into them.

Kabbalah has attracted many adherents from every sort of spiritual viewpoint, but it’s traditional connection to the use of old testament texts and themes makes it a very tempting philosophy for Christians, especially those seeking some deeper understanding of the Creator, which is lacking in most Churches, and which Kabbalah promises to provide.

It does not attract those Christians by way of appealing to a fervor to know Him and a better understanding to obey Him, though, as it would if there was a pure motive involved, and the practice of it delivered a righteous message.

It appeals to the base senses of pride in the fallen nature, offering something which is supposedly exclusive, and transcending knowledge only a ‘worthy soul’ could connect with and understand. This gives the adherents a certain sense of elite status to be a part of such a thing, all of which is simply a matter of empty pride.

Kabbalah or Qabbalah, meaning “receiving” is a mystical philosophy which supposes to explain the nature of Elohim, of His creation, the nature of souls, good, evil and the relationships between all these things.

Though the practice uses a highly symbolic interpretation of scripture, it more heavily relies on traditions which are extra-biblical and occult.

As it now exists, traditional “Judaic” Kabbalah only manifested as a recorded presence in the middle ages, but it’s adherents maintain that it’s teachings have come down orally from the beginning of human existence on Earth. It gradually became a more secret practice throughout history and is only receiving a more public awareness in these later days.

Truthfully, Kabbalah is nearly as old many who practice it say. The teachings of this philosophy are not fundamentally Jewish, nor have their beginnings in Israel or her patriarchs, though.

Regardless of the name it goes by, or the incorporation of Hebrew themes and names for the Creator, it began as the pagan opposition of everything YHWH stands for and admonished His people to live by.

Kabbalah so resembles Babylonian mystery religion because that is exactly what it is –

And has simply been absorbed into Jewish tradition during Israeli captivity in Babylon, contrary to all warnings YHWH has given His people to be separate from such things.

It is also as new as it is old, meaning that what is today newly popular, a trend toward believing in a spiritual outlook which regards human beings as divine and regards all creation as one and a part of whatever is viewed as “god” which is endowed with a feminine aspect , often termed “New Age” is very much what Kabbalah teaches.

Though disguised as monotheistic and based upon a belief in the One true Creator, Kabbalah views Him in ten personifications or “emanations” corresponding to four “worlds”.

The same principal is seen in the occult geomancy/ astrology practice of Feng Shui where there are ten deities corresponding to four “pillars” and is also seen in the Egyptian ennead – nine “gods and one “hidden” deity.

In the Kabbalistic tradition, the Creator caused a void in the act of creation which brought chaos into being. Self aware creation is formed as a result of this destructive event and thus beings who are able to commit willful sin. The Creator Himself is so shown as a being who both manifests disorder and is the sole origin of evil.

There is no “enemy”, no Satan, nothing which opposes the Creator, since He has authored the disorder Himself.

This explanation is directly contrary to the nature of YHWH, according to scripture, who is clearly described as purely righteous and the author of order, never chaos.

Kabbalah deals heavily in the use of gemantria, a practice by which hidden interpretations are derived out of scripture and other texts using a numbering system that correlates to each Hebrew letter, and in turn correlates to a specific meaning.

Without doubt, there is meaning in all reality and there is math at the base of all things He created and ordered. The danger of attempting to gain hidden knowledge by way of numerical divination is that this is an example of infants playing with highly technical and dangerous machinery.

YHWH does not hide the information He intends His creation to understand and if there be anything He does not intend to make known to us, our attempt to know it is futile and can only result in misinterpretation. That misinterpretation is fuel for the enemy to deceive us. Numerological divination has always been linked with the astrology and alchemy of numerous pagan belief systems.

The scriptures are very to the point in making it well understood that YHWH and the laws He put forth are the only acceptable standard and that Yahushua is the only acceptable redeemer to that standard which provides reconciliation for the sinner.

There is no question of the exclusivity of belonging to Him or the exclusivity of the available means we have to do so. That inherent truth is at least diluted in Kabbalistic understanding, if not completely abandoned.

Kabbalah has accepted, and been accepted by, a wide variety of belief systems including Eastern religions, Islam, Gnosticism and every manner of pagan religion. It is universalist fundamentally, as is the current religious trend leading into the New World Order, globalist “oneness” cult.

Those who have taught Kabbalah in the ancient past were at least aware that their practice was highly dangerous and that the influences they called upon in doing so were treacherous.

Though not wise enough to put away the abomination from them entirely, they had more wisdom than do the ignorant dabblers in this philosophy now who pursue it in foolish disregard for fire they play with.

Yahushua spoke of these masters of the mystery religion who sought far and wide to find one “worthy” pupil to train up in his demonic enlightenment.

“Woe to you, scribes and Parash (Pharisees), hypocrites! For you travel land and sea to win one proselyte, and when he is won, you make him twice as much a son of the valley of Hinnom as yourselves.”

– Matthew 23:15

The sect of the Pharisees were that which brought Kabbalah out of Babylon and into Judaism.

Of the non biblical texts which Kabbalah uses and relies on, the Zohar is one of the most important. The Zohar was penned by Moses De Leon in the 13th century, though he credited the content to Rabbi Shimon bar Yohai. It would seem that Moses De Leon actually received the information by way of becoming a medium to a spirit who dictated or wrote the text.

Shimon bar Yohai, himself was a teacher of the mystery arts and had been well known for his many so-called miracles. It is held in rabbinical records that he requested the assistance of a demon to possess the daughter of the Roman Emperor so that he could then demonstrate his powers by casting it out of her.

The text of the Zohar is actually a group of books which contains mystical interpretation of the Torah. The interpretations bear a strong resemblance to more modern theosophy than Judaic religion.

It is here that one finds the model of the trinity which is ancient and pagan but not the least Christian. The Creator, according to the Zohar, has three archetypes including a feminine aspect and an incomprehensible aspect which is above human involvement or understanding.

If there is still any possible doubt that Kabbalah opposes all things which are aligned with His will, consider the Kabbalists use of the supposed Name of Elohim, known as Shemhamphorasch.

The selfish use of His Name to gain personal power is a transgression which dates back to the pre-flood era. The Watchers having taught men the Name and how it might be used in this way is exactly the purpose of the commandment YHWH gave to not take His name in vain.

The Letters derived from three verses in Exodus having 72 characters each are arranged in a precise pattern which spell out the names of 72 angels and 72 “names of god”.

These beings, though, should not be assumed to be benevolent servants of YHWH.

These names are well known in occult belief to be the names of 72 fallen angels sometimes claimed to have been controlled by Solomon and employed to build his temple, even though such an act would contradict every warning of scripture to have nothing to do with drawing upon spiritual power that is not His Holy Spirit.

Anton Lavey, founder of the Church of Satan promoted calling upon these same beings and their names can be identified in grimoirs used in witchcraft.

Tarot cards, as well, owe their arrangement and naming to these 72 fallen angels. The names, divided into pairs are attributed to a ten degree section of the zodiac or ten numbers, four court cards and 22 major arcana – 36 pairs.

Seeking truth has become a popular claim, yet it is not enough to simply seek out truth. The motive itself must be Truth. To immerse one’s life in the honoring and worshiping of false deities is the definition of “practicing a lie”.

If the knowledge sought is to the end of fulfilling a desire to simply gain understanding of what seems hidden or exclusive or powerful, the final result is acquiring a vain and worthless mystery that belongs to those who have nothing to do with truth.

“Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.

But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and image worshippers, and whoever loves and practices a lie.”

– Revelation 22:14,15

“And now to the Watchers, who have sent you to pray for them, who in the beginning were in heaven, Say, In heaven have you been; secret things, however, have not been manifested to you; yet have you known a worthless mystery.

And this you have related to women in the hardness of your heart, and by that mystery have women and mankind multiplied evils upon the earth.”

– 1 Enoch 16: 2-4

“You worship what you do not know.

We know what we worship, for salvation is of the Yahudiym.

But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.

Yahuwah is Spirit and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

– John 4: 22-24

Of Serpent Seeds and Biased Doctrines: What is the Truth of It?

Posted in 03 : The Dragon with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 08/19/2010 by timenolonger

The Shepherds Chapel… Christian Identity… Serpent Seed Doctrine. These concepts have attracted a lot of people in the recent years.

The greater familiarity with the Book of Enoch which has come about recently, has been piggybacked by theology like that of Arnold Murray and his brand of doctrine surrounding the intermingling of human and angelic kind.

The events concerning the nephilim and their fathers, the pre-flood history of the world as told in 1 Enoch, are subject matters which comprise a starting point to a solid thread of evidence throughout the canon.

There is certainly a great deal of discomfort involved for many Christians in coming to terms with the idea of human and angelic co-mingling, and of offspring of that sort of union.

All discomfort aside… the foundation of support for it is unyielding scripturally.

The pitfalls for those who come across this information in their early walks in faith, when their spiritual maturity has yet to develop, are certainly out there.

The Serpent Seed doctrine does an excellent job of filling a position of look-a-like theology with subject matters such as nephilim, but the root of this doctrine is very different and so too is the fruit it yields.

Understanding what went on before the flood, what many bible topics mean in light of it, and what the implications are for the end times greatly expands maturity in objective thinking and understanding of the biblical message on a wide scale.

The result is ultimately that you begin to understand Mercy for what it is… that there is no room for games of pride and racial “one-uping”… that grace encompasses all recipients of it, and that it is futile to debate the purity of one’s own family tree.

Accepting the Serpent Seed theory grows into the antithesis of all of this. Confusion is the foundation of it, and it breeds confusion in understanding the full message of scripture… it necessitates very creative interpretation of scripture to continually find ways of supporting it throughout.

The doctrine itself is not simply background information for those who hold it, but it is the axis on which their whole “faith” rests. It becomes of utmost concern to place oneself apart from those who are considered the literal offspring of Satan.

This group is always held to be one or more specific ethnic group, and the “true Israel” is held as being whatever racial group the adherent belongs to (for Murray followers… white).

The obvious hallmark of pride abounds… that this cult has factions in every ethnicity, only adjusting the claims of who belongs to the devil and who belongs to Israel is enough evidence to show that the beliefs held around the Serpent Seed doctrine are hinging on racism and produce fruit fit for the garbage pile.

The doctrine of the Serpent Seed says basically this… that Satan literally had sex with Eve, producing Cain… this was the original sin of mankind. That Cain’s descendants are still with us today… who they are will depend on the adherent of the doctrine you ask.

Murray-ites will say Jews, black and other “non-white” groups. Anglo-Saxon whites are presented as “true” Israel in the Murray school of thought, whereas other ethnic groups might be labeled as such in different versions of the same creed.

The outcome is a band-aid for an inferiority complex which bolsters ones self esteem by being a member of the “Real” Israel, with the justified ability to look down other ethnic groups.

The fact that angelic entities did arrive on earth, and did interbreed with humanity beginning in the days of Jared, seems to have not fit the bill for the purposes of the Cain Serpent Seed theory.

Perhaps that has a beginning in those who first pushed the theory itself. The Serpent Seed theology has it’s beginnings in gnosticism and kaballah, not Murray.

Both of these belief systems are ironically ones which Arnold Murray followers would deny.. yet there is the root of their central belief.

Kaballah is called a Jewish invention, but it is older than it’s Jewish application, and more resembles Babylon. Both of these belief systems, gnosticism and kaballah, are rooted in the corrupt teachings of the Watchers.

It would not behoove the agenda of the fallen Watchers or their students, ancient and modern, to instill a memory and understanding of how they corrupted the world physically or morally.

The Serpent Seed theory by necessity demands denial of a world-wide flood, which is very difficult to support throughout scripture. It demands negating and explaining away, in very convoluted ways, the simple statement of Eve… that she had gotten a son through the blessing of YHWH, and the very simple prelude of explanation about how she did: a normal marital union with Adam.

The worst blunder in this doctrine lies in the commandment concerning the tree of knowledge of good and evil. YHWH’s command was to leave that one tree alone, of all those in the garden… they were free to partake of the others.

If we must accept that the tree of knowledge of good and evil is representative of Satan, and taking it’s fruit is literally having sex with him… then what of the other trees?

Do Adam and Eve have licenses to fornicate with anything in the garden Other than Satan? What do we then make of the tree of Life?

The scene begins to degrade into a bizarre pornographic version of Paradise that I dare say we are not looking forward to as the future state of eternal perfection.

Satan has 10 lies to obscure everyone truth… and it is my hope that believers will not accept the things which “feel good” to believe, but rather judge them against evidence, against common sense and against simple desires to believe a certain way.

Judge all things in His Spirit and examine the fruit that beliefs produce. If those fruits do not resemble His nature… they are best dismissed accordingly, no matter how much you have grown to like them.

The Gulf Oil Spill : Are We Looking At Imminent Prophetic Fulfillment?

Posted in 11 : Labor Pains with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 06/26/2010 by timenolonger

We have a real Situation in the gulf of Mexico… the potential for that Situation to become something Unimaginable is there. I won’t even bother with the speculations on whether or not it was really an accident… I consider it an in-your-face intentional act of such a boldly obvious nature as to not even require the question.

The only question to be asked is how bad is this going to get and what will “they” do with it. In all things, I think that’s ultimately up to our Creator… what His timing is, what this depraved world deserves, and how far His patience will extend could answer this maybe, but we don’t know how much sand is in His hourglass. I’d have to guess very little… but that’s just a guess.

BP and their friends in the White House certainly don’t want people discovering too much about what is taking place down there… they’ve gone out of their way to shoo-off (or arrest) anyone carrying a camera, and have treated the whole scene as if it’s some sea-bound version of the infamous Area 51.

Rumors of possible evacuation abound – which we could safely assume would not be for the purpose of sparing residence their health and lives, but more likely to ignite a chaos by herding some 50 million people into detention camps which might (rightly) stir the population to great angst.

If you live in the area… the best idea you have might to be to get out on your own while you can still breathe, and no one has put you behind a barbed wire fence.

American FEMA Camp

Still, there’s some potential lurking down there under the cold waters of the gulf which are slightly more alarming even than what the deranged government might want to do with their hapless citizens.

What we seem to have is a geyser (or several) of gushing oil and methane which derive from Deep under the earth’s surface… originating perhaps close to the core. A very immense quantity of oil and methane… but that coming to the surface and polluting vast areas of water and killing untold amounts of sea faring life isn’t even the most alarming part.

There is the question of altering, drastically, the pressure beneath the surface of the earth. The theory of plate tectonics being an utter fable… and the truth of the matter being that the earth has on occasion expanded, cracking apart a continuous land mass, which then became contents – what then might be the result of a great derangement of the balance of pressure inside the earth? I don’t intend to give a great, long answer to that question… it’s food for thought (if you really want to think about it).

I’m not the first to be impressed with a feeling of connection of this oil spill to some of the events described in Revelation. Some are quite sure there is a relevant connection… particularly with this section:

“Then the second angel sounded and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea and a third of the sea became blood. And a third of the living creatures in the sea died and a third of the ships were destroyed.”

– Revelation 8:8,9

With some discussion of using a nuclear solution to this oil problem, it would not be hard to imagine that “great mountain burning with fire” being the “solution”… which then goes terribly wrong (or right, depending on the side you’re rooting for), resulting in an even worse geyser of oil that effectively pollutes a third of the world’s oceans.

The obvious problem to this fitting prophecy is chronology. Before this section of Revelation, we’ve already seen the four horsemen (conquest, war, famine and economic hardship, and death).

Four Horsemen Chingis Images

We could perhaps say that we have seen these things… but continuing on… there is a great earthquake, the sun turning dark and the moon turning red, stars of heaven falling, the displacement of many geographical features and people hiding.

All this is then followed by a sealing of 144,000 Israelites, and a hail of fire and blood which destroys a third of every kind of plant life.

Obviously, we haven’t seen some of these things, which all precede the event of a “burning mountain” which turns the sea to blood and kills a third of the world’s marine life.

Possibilities to consider, though, are these: the events which are mapped out in an orderly chronological fashion in the vision shown to John are not meant to imply the same kind of successive occurrence in the world when they happen. In other words, don’t discount the possibility that some of these prophecies would occur simultaneously with each other.

Another possibility is that this oil situation would continue to go on as it has for some time into the future during which time we would see these proceeding prophecies fulfilled.

A third possibility… is that we are dealing with the prelude to a completely different prophecy… this one:

After these things I saw another messenger coming down from the sky, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his splendor.

And he cried mightily with a loud voice saying, “Babel the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird!

For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.”

And I heard another voice from the sky saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins and lest you receive of her plagues, for her sins have reached to the sky and Yahuwah has remembered her iniquities.

Render to her just as she rendered to you and repay her double according to her works. In the cup that she has mixed, mix double for her.

In the measure that she magnified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow, for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as queen and am no widow and will not see sorrow.’

Therefore her plagues will come in one day. Death, and mourning, and famine, and she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is Yahuwah ‘Eloah who judges her.

The kings of the earth who committed fornication and lived luxuriously with her will mourn for her and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning, standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, ‘Alas! Alas! That great city Babel, that mighty city! For in one hour your judgment has come.’

And the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise anymore.

Merchandise of gold and silver, precious stones and pearls, fine linen and purple, silk and scarlet, every kind of citron wood, every kind of object of ivory, every kind of object of most precious wood, bronze, iron, and marble, and cinnamon and incense, fragrant oil and frankincense, wine and oil, fine flour and wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and bodies and souls of men.

The fruit that your soul longed for has gone from you, and all the things that are rich and splendid have gone from you, and you shall find them no more at all.

The merchants of these things, who became rich by her, will stand at a distance for fear of her torment, weeping and wailing and saying, ‘Alas! Alas! That great city that was clothed in fine linen, purple, and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls! For in one hour such great riches came to nothing.’

Every shipmaster, all who travel by ship, sailors, and as many as trade on the sea, stood at a distance and cried out when they saw the smoke of her burning saying, ‘What is like this great city?’ They threw dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and wailing and saying, ‘Alas! Alas! That great city, in which all who had ships on the sea became rich by her wealth! For in one hour she is made desolate.'”

– Revelation 18:1-19

As we know… a massive reserve of oil and methane can equal a lot of fire.

Sodium Fluoride and Now Lithium to Enchant the Masses

Posted in 09 : Global Enchantment with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 06/05/2010 by timenolonger

Would you submit to taking forced medication every day whether or not there was anything wrong with you to begin with? I am sure the reasonable answer to that is no, and I am sure most would answer this way, at least I would hope that is so.

There are a number of influential scientific leaders and even media sources which suggest that it would be a good idea to add Lithium to municipal water supplies, though, and perhaps they expect the public reaction to be as accepting or as apathetic as they would hope.

Lithium, which is used as a mood stabilizing drug, is claimed to have the effect of lowering the incidence of suicide in populations where it is introduced into the water supply.

According to the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of California at San Diego, Ohgami H, Terao T, Shiotsuki I, Ishii N, and Iwata N. at the Department of Neuropsychiatry at Oita University, findings suggest that the rates of suicides and violent crimes are reduced where lithium is found in higher amounts.

Institute of Mental Health at the University of British Columbia director, Allan Young reported –

“A logical first step would be for the Medical Research Council (or a similar body elsewhere) to convene an expert working party to examine the available evidence and suggest further research. If larger epidemiological studies suggest the link between lithium and low suicide rates is real and lab research can explain the biological mechanism, real clinical trials might be worth a shot. Following up on these findings will not be straightforward or inexpensive, but the eventual benefits for community mental health may be considerable,”

Fox news took the opportunity to sell this idea to the public. The spokesperson invited to speak on Fox, Dr. Archelle Georgiou, attempted to make a case for a proposal to add lithium to US municipal water supplies, just as sodium fluoride has been for years.

Nothing is mentioned, either by the researchers who have supposedly studied the effects of drinking Lithium or Dr. Georgiou, about the toxicity of the metal which they would like to see pushed on every person whether they are mentally unstable or not.

Acute Lithium toxicity can result in muscle spasms, seizures, cardiac symptoms and coma. Chronic toxicity, the effects of having taken a little Lithium daily for a long period of time are tremors, salt wasting, kidney failure, memory loss and psychosis.

It should come as no surprise if there is a push to add one more ingredient to the water with the ability to cause psychosis and memory loss. Sodium Fluoride, which most American’s drink daily if they have a municipal water supply, has a very similar effect and a history of being used for just that effect.

A German company known as Interessen Gemeinschaft Farben which became associated with Henry Ford, The standard Oil Company owned by the Rockefellers, Du Pont, Kellogg and Colgate admitted at the close of WW II that it had regularly used Sodium Fluoride as a mass medication to keep the population docile and unable to mentally function.

Fluoridation being able to cause a form of chemical lobotomy in a human brain, it was found to work well in German and Russian prisoner of war camps. The US continued Nazi research into mass medication of populations and controlling human behavior well after the War.

With this information public, the majority of people still think nothing of using fluoridated toothpaste or drinking water with Sodium Fluoride added.

Perhaps my hope that most people would say no to Lithium as an additive is not realistic after all. This is a country which believes in pharmaceutical benevolence with a devotion which is almost worship.

The global spending on prescription drugs in 2006 was over 643 billion dollars. The US is responsible for half of that market and the pharmaceutical industry is the most profitable business in America.

It is not hard to think of the the US when reading a description of Babylon’s addiction to sorcery –

“The light of a lamp shall not shine in you anymore, and the voice of bridegroom and bride shall not be heard in you anymore. For your merchants were the great men of the earth. For by your sorcery all the nations were deceived”

– Revelation 18:23

sorcery – pharmakeia – the making and using of drugs.

Let us come out of Babylon.

Catholic Church has Some Explaining to Do

Posted in 01 : The Chief Cornerstone with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 05/16/2010 by timenolonger

Christianity has caught a real bad rap because of the Catholic church. We shouldn’t base our views on the bible on the actions of the Catholic Church. Sadly many people do associate the teachings of the scripture with the Catholic Church.

Is the Catholic Church really a bible based religion now? If it’s not, can we base our views of YHWH, and Yahushua on it? Let’s take a look and see weather or not the Catholic church is based on the bible…..

Exodus 28:41 – “You shall put them on Aaron your brother and on his sons with him; and you shall anoint them and ordain them and consecrate them, that they may serve Me as priests.”

It seems that scripture suggests that one must be a Levite, and a son of Aaron to be a priest. The first flaw I see in the Catholic Church is the fact that they have priests. Do these men claim to be descended from Aaron? No, they do not. So why do they call themselves priests then? Under what authority do they get the privilege to be supposed priests of YHWH?

Deuteronomy 4:16 – “so that you do not act corruptly and make a graven image for yourselves in the form of any figure, the likeness of male or female”

Mosaic law is clear concerning making images of deities, even YHWH. What human hand could even capture the glory of YHWH in a painting or statue? Solomon’s Temple only had images of angels, palm trees, and pomegranates. Why does the Catholic Church violate the rule against making images of the Creator?

Numbers 6:17 – “So they shall invoke My name (YHWH) on the sons of Israel, and I then will bless them.”

Psalms 86:12 – “I will give thanks to You, O YHWH my Elohim, with all my heart, And will glorify Your Name forever.”

Here is what the Catholic Church says about using His Name…

“Bishop Arthur J. Serratelli of Paterson, N.J., chairman of the U.S. bishops’ Committee on Divine Worship, announced the new Vatican “directives on the use of ‘the name of God’ in the sacred liturgy” in an Aug. 8 letter to his fellow bishops.” “Avoiding pronouncing the Tetragrammaton of the name of God on the part of the church has therefore its own grounds,” the letter said. “Apart from a motive of a purely philological order, there is also that of remaining faithful to the church’s tradition, from the beginning, that the sacred Tetragrammaton was never pronounced in the Christian context nor translated into any of the languages into which the Bible was translated.”

These decrees go against what scripture teaches.. consider Exodus 3:15, Exodus 9:16, Exodus 33:19, Leviticus 19:12, Numbers 6:17, 1 Kings 5:5, Psalms 86:12, Psalms 91:14, Psalms 103:1, Isaiah 42:8, Isaiah 52:6, Jeremiah 12:16, Jeremiah 15:16, Jeremiah 16:21, Jeremiah 23:27, Ezekiel 39:7, Zechariah 13:9, Matthew 24:9 , John 10:25, John 16:24, and Acts 4:12…

This is all just the very tip of the iceberg. We could go on for days with subjects like pagan holidays being incorporated into the Catholic Church, or the great wealth of the Vatican that could feed many starving Catholics.

The scripture warns about hoarding wealth. I would like for people to know that the RCC is not a bible based religion, and you shouldn’t base your ideas of Elohim, and the scripture on this establishment.

A Duty to Disobey?

Posted in 07 : The Ruling Controllers with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 05/08/2010 by timenolonger

Obedience, and the yielding of our will to our Creator and to those He puts in authority above us, are important points made in many places in scripture.

Perhaps the majority of believers are not ignorant of the fact that we are called to be servants, and to behave as such. Without question, it is not justified that we ever rebel against Him, or what He asks of us.

Is there a time when it is appropriate in His eyes to be a rebel though?

Children are not to be rebels against their parents, nor are youths to rebel against their elders – but what do we do when it comes to a national leader and a government that practices evil?

Not long ago I read an article by a pastor who addressed the recent passing of the socialized healthcare.

He questioned to those reading – should believers refuse to pay for mandatory health care, or taxes which provide for it, if those funds would be used to pay for abortions?

His answer to his own question gave me a sick feeling.

He answered that it is a believer’s duty to pay taxes and submit to mandatory healthcare anyway, and that believers are not obligated to refuse, because it is a government mandate.

Believers are to be in submission to their government, he said.

Perhaps the prophet Daniel would disagree with him. Daniel was ordered to bow before an idol by the king, but he preferred to be thrown into an oven rather than submit to the evil command of the ruler of the land.

If today’s believers really see abortion as something they can support because government mandated it, i wonder if these same might bow before any other idol which they are commanded to as well.

Can we say it is better to submit to government no matter what – rather than stand for what is right no matter what?

If a government agent should come to a believer’s door with a young pregnant woman, and demand that believer pay for her abortion or be in violation of federal law – would that make this situation different?

All know what a risk it is to take to decide to defy the federal income tax system, or to defy anything which the government holds as being mandatory, even if it is an illegal mandate.

Perhaps it is likely that fear has quite a bit to do with why many have trouble thinking about these things in the way that the Creator might view them.

He does not want us to be in fear of anyone but Him, and perhaps we do not have to guess what He feels about abortion in general.

The healthcare issue has not been the only, and will not be the last, law or mandate by government that will try to force His people to choose between doing what is right or doing what government wishes.

Perhaps people should even ask themselves what it means when they give in to what they consider small invasions – like cameras in bathrooms and scanners which take pictures of naked bodies.

It is not always about what inconvenience it seems to be to you, it is about how every person willing to comply with such things only makes it easier for these measures to become worse, and enforced more brutally upon your countrymen.

It seems to me, when there are so many who will not take the small steps of refusing to obey what evil commands them to do, that there must surely be a multitude who would not be willing to refuse Antichrist when it means their lives.

I am surely not someone in favor of an armed rebellion, or violence which is not immediately related to defending one’s own life or the life of someone else, but don’t people, at times, have a duty to disobey?

Maybe i have no good answers for those out there who feel that they are not able to get themselves away from a system on which they depend and their families depend, but perhaps this is the time to think about these things and seek His answer.

We all must leave Babylon in some time and in some way, yes? Either by small steps or by a great leap of faith.

I do know this though – He is sufficient for all things in all situations.
