The book of Genesis has been termed as ‘seed book of the Bible ‘ . In it we have, all of the great doctrines in ‘seed’ from which are fully developed in the later books of the scripture .
In Genesis, God is revealed as the creator – God, we have the first mention of the Blessed Trinity ‘Let us make man in our image ‘ ( Gen 1 : 26), we have man exhibited , we read about the wiles of Satan , the sovereign election , salvation ,Justification etc. Indeed , all of the greatest doctrines are told in a nut shell which are exposed later on in the books following and their culmination in the ‘Apocalypse’ showing the Bible’s unity and harmony and also showing the Holy Spirit who inspired Moses to write ‘Genesis’ is the same Author who revealed to John ,in the Isle of Patmos the last revelation the ‘Apocalypse’ . What a marvelous proof is all this of the Divine Authorship ! Who but the One who knows the end from the beginning , could have embodied , in ‘seed’ form, what is afterwards expanded and amplified in the rest of the Bible!
Now, what I am going to write to you is not to be taken as a doctrinal truth. I place before you nearly 30 years of meditation in the Word of God which made me curious and given an insight which I think I should share it with you. You may disagree ;you may laugh at this article- doesn’t matter. Because you and I love the scripture , let us study together . I would only pray like Elisha , “LORD, I pray Thee, open his eyes that he may see ” (II kings 6 : 17)
In Genesis, the “seed – book ” of the Bible, the greatest revelation was given in the very first prophesy in the Bible uttered by God back in the garden of Eden, “And I will put enmity between thy seed and her seed ; it shall bruise thy head , and thou shalt bruise his heel” (Gen 3 :15) . As you all know, the ‘women’s seed ‘ is our LORD JESUS CHRIST being born of virgin Mary by the over shadowing of the Holy Spirit -Then the ‘serpent’s seed ‘ must be the Anti-Christ.
What really happened in the garden of Eden is a mystery ! The first ‘sin’ is not only the sin of ‘disobedience’, it is much more. May the Lord help us to study together the amazing revelation in the scripture .
Rev 2 : 7 , “He that hath an ear , let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of Life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God ”
Now notice , it says that the Spirit is speaking to the churches. That is plural , not singular. The Spirit did not want John to write to a local Ephesian church only ,not for that age only, but for all church ages. But this (Ephesian church in the Revelation) is the church of the beginnings. And so it is like the book of Genesis.
What is the reward promised ?
“The tree of life”-It is mentioned three times in the Book of Genesis and three times in the Book of Revelation . In all six places, it is the same tree and symbolizes exactly the same thing .
Spiritually speaking the ‘Tree of Life’ is a type of our Lord Jesus CHRIST and the ‘Tree of knowledge of Good and Evil is a type of the Evil one, Satan. But at present , we are not proceeding in that direction. Remember, literally, there were two trees by the same name in the Garden of Eden and Adam and Eve ate the fruit of the forbidden tree.
Man was to live by the Tree of Life; he was not to touch the other tree , and if he did , death would enter into him by his sin, and he would be separated from God.
Here is where we receive the true revelation of the ‘serpent’s seed’. Here is what really happened in the garden of Eden . Eve was actually beguiled by the serpent. She was actually seduced by the serpent. In Gen 3 : 1 the word of God says ,”Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made “. This beast was so close to a human being (and yet was pure animal ). Like Balamm’s ass talked when the Lord opened the mouth of the ass (Num 22 : 28), the Lord allowed the serpent’s mouth to be opened that he could reason and talk . In the beginning , the serpent was so close to being human that his seed could, and did mingle with that of the woman and caused her to conceive . Man did not come from monkey . The Evil one, the Anti-Christ, came from the serpent whom Satan possessed . That is why , Anti-Christ is called the ‘beast’, because in one sense, he is the ‘son of the beast’ and in other sense ‘ the wicked one ‘ (II Thes 2 ). Satan has no creative power like God so he could not place ‘his seed ‘ in Eve and thereby had to come through the ‘serpent’.
When this happened , God cursed the serpent. He changed every bone in the serpent’s body so that he had to crawl like a snake. Why should God do that to serpent’s body which He did to no other creature whom He created? Because the serpent in the beginning could sin with it’s body. Otherwise it won’t be logical for the wise God to curse the serpent in the way He did it and not so with the other beasts. Science can try all it wants to, and it won’t find the missing link. God saw to that. Man is smart and he can see an association of human with an animal. He tries to prove it out of evolution. There isn’t any evolution. Human did mingle with animal and it is this only incidence that ever happened for God afterwards changed the whole anatomical structure of the serpent. We will never have or find that serpent of Eden again. It is gone. That is one of the mysteries of God that has remained hidden, but here it is revealed.
The one who was formed in the garden of Eden to the serpent through Satan and Eve was the ‘serpent’s seed’ . It was there first in the conception of Eve and it happened not outside the garden, but inside the garden , and that is the reason for God to curse the ‘conception’ when He cursed Eve . “Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception ; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children ” Gen 3 :16
Notice what God said to them in the garden. ( Gen 3 : 15). If we give credit to the word of God that the woman did have a seed ( woman’s seed ), then the serpent must have surely had a seed also . If the ‘woman’s seed ‘ was a man- child apart from the man, then the ‘serpent’s seed’ must be born apart from human male’s intervention. We all know that the ‘woman’s seed ‘ was ‘Christ’ so that the serpent’s seed was the Anti-Christ. It was all prophesied by God in the garden of Eden and both seeds were there.
In Luke 1 : 26-35 the detailed account of the ‘woman’s seed’ is given . “And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, to a virgin
espoused to a man whose name was Joseph , of the house of David ; and the virgin’s name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured , the Lord is with thee : blessed art thou among women . And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shall call His name JESUS. He shall be great, and the Lord God shall give unto Him the throne of His father David: And He shall reign over the house of Jacob forever; and of His kingdom there shall be no end. Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall over shadow thee : therefore also that Holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the son of God ” The ‘woman’s seed ‘ ,therefore ,literally God reproducing Himself in the human flesh . The ‘serpent’s seed ‘ is the literal way that Satan found to open the door to himself into the human race. Satan is CREATED spirit-being and so it is impossible for Satan to reproduce himself in the manner which God reproduced Himself . The Genesis account only tells us how he reproduced his seed and introduced himself into the human race . Similar incident happened when Jesus was here on earth. He begged Him to send him into the swines which Jesus did. Also recall that Satan is called the ‘serpent ‘.
The names of the two trees given in Genesis ‘ The Tree of Life’ and ‘The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil’ have profound meaning. They were in the midst of the garden side by side . The name of the second tree was ‘The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil’ why it is named so? There was a knowledge around that tree and that was an Evil one. It was a Carnal knowledge . The Bible always called that knowledge as ‘he knew’ ,’he knew’. ‘And Adam knew his wife ‘
Before Adam ever had carnal knowledge of Eve, the serpent had that Knowledge ahead of him. And that one born of it was CAIN. Cain was of that “WICKED ONE” (“And then shall that wicked be revealed …….Even him whose coming is after the working of Satan ” II Thes 2 : 8-9). Read carefully I John 3 : 12 “Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one “. The Holy spirit could not in one place of the word of God call Adam as the “wicked one “. Rather , in another place ,Adam is called ‘ the son of God ‘which he was by creation.(Luke 3 : 38)
My beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, you may be surprised to know, if you have read Lesson 1,my previous article, that I wrote ‘CAIN’, the first man born on earth, the first murderer, is the Anti-Christ. I don’t think anyone is going to be born hereafter as the ‘serpent’s seed ‘ after the Eden encounter. The Bible never tells that we cannot find who is the Anti-Christ but rather speaks about his revelation to the world which will be sudden and subtle in nature. (II Thes 2 : 7,8) Again I write to you, this is not a fundamental doctrine truth but rather out of love of the word of God, I want to share with you thoughts hidden for decades in my Christian life. “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man …”Rev 13 : 18.
Cain turned out in character like his father, the devil, a bringer of death, a murderer . His utter defiance of God in Gen 4 :5 , 9, 13,14 shows him inhuman in character. The Word of God says in Gen 4 : 5, “But unto Cain and to his offering He had no respect”. God not only did not have any respect for Cain’s bloodless offering, but unto Cain as a person also. Jesus speaking of the devil put it in a veiled way to indicate what happened in the beginning , “He was a murderer from the beginning and abode not in truth, because there is no truth in him” John 8 : 44. That is a summary of Cain. (though in a bigger way about Cain’s father ,the devil himself ). Devil when he was created as an anointed Cherub was not a murderer from the beginning neither a liar in the beginning . It was Cain who was the first murderer and the son of the devil who spoke not the truth about his brother’s death . That happened in the very beginning itself.
Notice the exact way the record of God sets forth the account of the births of Cain, Abel and Seth. Gen 4 : 1 ,”And Adam knew Eve his wife ; and she conceived and bare Cain ,and said I’ve gotten a man from the Lord. And she again bare his brother Abel ” Gen 4 : 25, “And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son and called his Seth…”.There were THREE sons born from Two acts of carnal knowledge by Adam. Therefore , ONE of those three was not the son of Adam. Eve was carrying TWINS in the first conception. According to medical science it is possible to carry twins who were of separate ova and separate insemination with fertilization of eggs being days apart
Why did this have to be so? Why the seed of the serpent must come this way? This is because God alone could appear in human flesh. Satan could not and cannot do that. Satan has no creative powers. And so how could serpent’s seed come? He needs a medium . God does not enter into animals .But Satan had done before and is doing even now entering into animals. So he entered into the serpent and then beguiled EVE. Then God had to destroy the pattern of that ‘old serpent’. No other beast can come and mingle with man. In the scripture wherever the ‘old serpent ‘ is referred it always refers to the devil (Rev 12 : 9; Rev 20 : 2)
The fall of man was caused by Satan using an animal medium. Animal had caused the fall. Let animal life be shed. So an animal(Lamb) was taken and it’s blood shed and then God had communion with man again. There was to come a day when God would appear in flesh. God would shed His blood and restore the fallen man. It was John the Baptist who said,” Behold the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world” John 1 : 29. It was only to John the Baptist it was revealed Jesus as the “Lamb of God “. Nobody else uses that term except in the Apocalypse. An Animal was used by Satan to introduce ‘sin’ into the world and God used another animal namely the ‘Lamb’ in the older times to restore temporary communion with man. Finally He Himself came as the ‘ Lamb of God ‘ to remove ‘sin’ once for all through His sacrifice.
And so those two sons were born (Cain and Abel ). Gen 5 is the chapter of genealogy . The genealogy is as follows :
Notice that Cain is not mentioned. If Cain was the son of Adam he should have been mentioned. Isn’t it the word of God perfect? The line of Adam goes through Seth. If Cain was the child of Adam, the law of birth would have given Cain the right in the lineage. Also read Gen 5 : 3, “Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness ,after his image ,and called his name Seth”. Nowhere does it say that Cain was in Adam’s likeness and image. Cain is missing my friend !
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, I hope this research study is immensely beneficial to all of you . Again I want to say this study is not a fundamental doctrinal truth but rather the one which would captivate you if you are the lovers of the word of God.
Last time we referred to Gen 5 : 3 where it says that Seth , the third son of Adam, was in Adam’s own likeness and after his image. Nowhere the scripture says that Cain was in Adam’s likeness. In the geneologic record of Adam, Cain is missing which should not be according to the law of birthright if Cain was the son of Adam. In fact in both genealogies in Genesis and Luke, Cain is missing.
We may say that there are two lines of man: one of which was the Godly line found in Seth and the other the ungodly line as found in Cain. Even agreeing to that, we don’t find Adam’s name mentioned in the ungodly line. It only says in Gen 4 : 16,” And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod….And Cain knew his wife….” Further, please let me know why Cain was the kind of person he was while Abel and Seth were of the spiritual Godly line. Why? In fact Cain comes forth as totally wicked and violent and withstands God and the word.
In Gen 3 : 20 the word of God says, “And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living” But no scripture says that Adam was the father of all living. It is this fact, Cain, where Adam could not be the father of all living.
Someone is bound to ask, “Did God tell Eve to watch out for the serpent or the serpent would seduce her?” I would say that God simply gave the word. He said not to partake of that KNOWLEDGE. Don’t fool with that word. And what did that tree produce? The Tree of knowledge produced death. Cain killed his brother, Abel. The wicked killed the righteous. It sets a pattern. The Tree of knowledge produced clever men; men of renown. But their ways are the ways of death.
You may say but Cain was religious. He believed in God. It is true. More than the unbelievers and the atheists, the Pharisees and the Sadducees, of Jesus day, it was the devil who believed in Jesus as the Son of God. They mingle too with the godly. Remember, the devil is called ‘the angel of light’. The devil’s fear of God is not a saving fear of God as Cain’s fear of God was not like that of Abel. They fear God only for His judgment and not fear Him and obey Him as Lord and Master. If the devil fears to God in the proper way, then, the devil will obey to what God has said. “God hath said, ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, ye shall not surely die” Gen 3 : 3,4.
Adam was given the word to live by. We too can live eternally if we do according to the word of God. Only Jesus lived perfectly according to the word of God. His Name is also called the ‘word’ when attacked by the devil He said ” it is written “. He overcame by reflecting the word of God.
Just as by the act of ‘eating’ man lost his spiritual life, so by an act of ‘eating’ man now obtains spiritual and eternal life! “whoso eateth My flesh, and drinketh My blood,hath eternal life”(John 6 : 53, 54)
Cain was a hybrid. You know that a hybrid is what comes of two species mixing. The result is no longer pure like the original. When Eve allowed the serpent to seduce her, when Eve allowed the beast to mingle his seed with hers, she produced a creature called Cain that was not pure human. He was of the WICKED ONE. Notice how different Cain was from Abel. Notice how different Cain was from Seth. He was angry with God and would not obey His word and correct his mistakes.” And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell. And the Lord said unto Cain, why art thou wroth? And why is thy countenance fallen? If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted?” Gen 4 :5,6,7.But Cain never wanted to correct himself which is the character of the devil. “And Cain talked with Abel his brother: when they were in the field, Cain rose up against Abel his brother and slew him” Gen. 4 : 8.
Do you know the most famous hybrid in the world? It is the Mule. It is a cross between a donkey and a horse. Mule is a domesticated, hybrid animal that results from crossing a mare (female horse) and a jack (male donkey). A mule looks somewhat like both its parents. Mules are hardy and resist disease well. Unfortunately, mules do not have offspring of their own, except in extreme rare cases. Animals which cannot have offspring are said to be sterile. All male mules and most female mules are sterile. Mules have strong muscles. They can be used as work animals. In Exodus 13 : 13 the scripture says, “And every firstling of an ass thou shalt redeem with a lamb; and if thou will not redeem it, then thou shalt break his neck; and all the first born of man among thy children shalt thou redeem”. The ass can be redeemed. All the first born of man can definitely be redeemed. Every sinner can be redeemed by the blood sacrifice of JESUS CHRIST. If the sinner rejects CHRIST, the sinner will be rejected . But YOU CANNOT REDEEM THE MULE. There is no redemption for him. And that is what happened to Cain, a resonance hybrid. God said, ” If thou does’t not well, sin lieth at the door” Gen 4 : 7. Cain never repented for his beastly act. On the contrary he said,” Am I my brother’s keeper” The Mule cannot be redeemed. There is no blood for him. Cain’s sacrifice was bloodless sacrifice. The mule cannot be redeemed. The Mule hasn’t the seed of life. It is dead. Watch the Mule’s nature. He is stubborn and cannot be trusted. The mule has no seed in him that can be quickened but the ass has seed. Daniel saw a vision and writes,” I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly;…..and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it” Dan 7 : 7. John says, ” And the beast which I saw was unto a leopard ,and his feet were like unto the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion..…..” Rev 13 : 2- a hybrid! That is the Anti-Christ! When the word of God is not obeyed it will lead up to murder. When the word is not followed, there is your hybrid.
God has set laws in His universe. A good seed can only bring good fruit and the evil seed can only bring evil fruit. Though both the good and the evil seeds use the same earth, use the same nourishment, everything will produce only after its own kind. Look at the Cain line. Look at the Seth line. When they mingled as it is written in Gerib, hybrids were born , Nephilim or Giants were born. And God saw everything was evil and it had represented the Lord that He had made man on the earth. It was serpents seed that brought forth Cain. It was Adam’s seed that brought forth Abel and Seth. Those seeds went through the same process, but the children were different for they were from different seeds.
You pervert the word, you reap exactly what you injected. If you try to change the truth into a lie, you will breed a Godless system of religion. This is what the Anti-Christ will try to do. He shall try to change the laws and even speak against God of very gods and try to magnify himself and set up his image in the temple. That is the Anti-Christ. The seed is different.
THAT IS THE “WAY OF CAIN”
(Jude verse 11)
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, we hope that you are carefully following the lessons on the ‘first seed’. “It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honor of kings is to search out a matter” Prov 25:2.
We want to show you something immensely important which Bible scholars think as merely a typology and a Sunday school story. It is the story of ‘Noah’ and it tells us what happened in the Garden of Eden before. Details, which are not given in the first few chapters of ‘Genesis’, are given in the story of ‘Noah’ in a detailed way.
“”These are the generations of Noah” (Gen 6:9). Here a new section of Genesis commences. This section closes with the sad scene of Noah’s drunkenness, the curse on his descendants and his death (Gen 9:20-29). Readers, before going through this article, please read Genesis chapter 6,7,8 & 9. Only when you understand the Noah’s incident, you are going to understand what happened in the beginning and the Eden truth.
“But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord” (Gen 6:8). This is the first thing that is recorded about Noah. ‘Grace’ is the foundation of every life that is pleasing to God. It is here, in Gen 6:8, the word ‘grace’ is seen for the first time in God’s word. It was when the sin of the creature had reached its climax that grace was exercised and displayed.
Remember that it is a new beginning after the watery grave. God entered into a covenant with Noah. Then God blessed Noah and his sons. Similarly in Eden, there was the new beginning. The earth was brought out of darkness and the watery grave. God blessed Adam and Eve and put them in charge of the creation. So the missing Eden links can be understood from the life of Noah. God delivered all the lower orders of creation into Noah’s hands as he did in Eden. God gave Noah the authority and instituted human Government himself as he did it in Eden.
Now, what happened? Man fell in sin. The very next thing that we read about Adam is that he fell in sin. The very next thing that we read about Noah, “Noah began to be a husbandman, and he planted a vineyard: and he drunk of the wine and was drunken and he was uncovered within his tent” (Gen 9:20,21). Hebrew Bible scholars tell us that the Hebrew word here for “uncovered” clearly indicates a deliberate act. This reminds us of what happened in Eden. It was Eve who was deceived by the serpent. But Adam out of the love for Eve deliberately ate the fruit that Eve gave!
Therefore, we believe, Genesis 9 brings before us the inauguration of a new beginning like Genesis 1. Careful comparison of the two beginnings reveals the fact that there is extraordinary resemblance between Noah and Adam.
RESEMBLANCE BETWEEN ADAM AND NOAH
1. Adam was placed upon an earth which came out of the “deep” and which had previous been dealt with by God in Judgment (Gen 1:2). Similarly, Noah came forth onto an earth that just emerged from the watery grave as a result of Divine judgment on sin.
2. Adam was made “Lord of creation” (Gen 1:28). Similarly into the hands of Noah God delivered all things (Gen 9:2).
3. Adam was “blessed” by God and to be “fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it” (Gen 1:28). Similarly Noah was “blessed” and told to be, “fruitful, multiply and replenish the earth” (Gen 9:1) Notice the word “subdue it” in Genesis 1 is not found in Genesis 9. This is because man has fallen in sin. To subdue the earth, we need a saviour.
4. Adam was placed by God in a Garden to “dress and to keep it” (Gen 2:15) similarly after the flood we find Noah on a garden. Noah, “began to be a husbandman, and he planted a vineyard” (Gen 9:20) Notice the word “VINEYARD’, Specially mentioned. Similarly in Eden two trees, the tree of Life and the tree of Knowledge of good and evil are specially mentioned among others. Glory to God! Can God open our eyes to see the truth?
5. Inside the garden Adam transgressed and fell by eating the fruit of the forbidden tree. Similarly Noah transgressed and fell by eating the fruit of the vine. Here is wisdom! Brothers and Sisters in Christ what is written now are amazing revelation of the Holy word of God. It is for the Bible lovers whether it is accepted or not. In Eden there were two trees. One the Tree of Life, otherwise is called the “choice vine”. It is stated, “Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass’s colt unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes”(Gen 49: 11) This was the blessing of Jacob to Judah, from whom our saviour came. In Eden there were two literal trees; one was the ‘choice vine’ producing life and the other Tree of Knowledge of good and evil, the vine of the Earth producing unconsciousness and drunkenness which lead to death.
Therefore there were two literal trees in the Garden of Eden. Both of them were Vine trees, one producing grape from the CHOICE VINE or TRUE VINE and the other producing grapes from the EARTHLY VINE or FALSE VINE. One lead to life and the other lead to death. That is why Jesus said, “I am the true vine, and my Father is the husband man “John 15: 1. That is why the first miracle he performed was in a marriage by turning water into wine. In other words, symbolically Jesus showed man should have participated in the choice vine and not the other Earthly vine. Jesus showed us that He came to make us participate in the blessed tree, so my friend, The Two Trees that were present in the Garden of Eden were both grape trees But one of them lead to life and the other lead to death.
See what happened after Adam and Eve participated the grapefruits from False vine. They both went into a drunken and unconscious state. At that time, the serpent seduced Eve and that was the reason for God to curse Eve’s conception. It all happened inside the garden not outside. Since the Bible is the word of God, it gives a true picture of what happened in Eden. “And the eyes of them both were opened and they knew that they were naked”
Gen 3: 7. They were in a drunken state like Noah. When they came to their senses, that is, when their eyes were opened, they saw they were naked. Previously they had no such feeling and knowledge. But now it was different. You can ask me where is the choice vine now? God banned man so that he should not taste the other life giving grapes and put Cherubim over there. Then during the great flood, God removed every trace of that tree. My friend it is gone. God saw to that. It is now in heaven, in paradise and the fruit will be given to overcomers only. But you have a similar type of FALSE VINE available even now. How? Noah took part of it after the flood and the result produced curse. People all over the world are participating leading to drunkenness, murder, orgies, breaking of families and eventually death!
6. The Sin of Adam resulted in the exposure of his nakedness (Gen 3: 7). Similarly, we read “And he(Noah) was uncovered within his tent”(Gen 9 : 21)
7. Adam could not cover his nakedness by himself. The fig leaf dresses were a poor substitute for his nakedness.
It had to be covered by another. Since no one was there, God Himself covered him. “Unto Adam also and to his wife did the Lord God make coats (kethoneth) of skins, and clothed them”(Gen 3: 21). Similarly, Noah’s nakedness was covered by his sons. (Gen 9: 23)
8. Adam’s sin brought a terrible curse on his posterity (Rom 5: 12). Similarly, Noah’s sin brought a terrible sin on his posterity. (Gen 9 : 24,25). Man became a slave to sin. Similarly Ham became a slave of slaves.
(i). Almost immediately after Adam’s fall, a wonderful prophesy, the first prophecy in the word of God, was uttered by God Himself. The first prophecy concerned about human redemption.Gen 3: 15. Similarly, almost immediately after Noah’s fall, a remarkable prophecy was uttered concerning the human race.
My brothers and sisters in Christ! This is the analogy between Adam and Noah. What is hidden in the first few chapters of Genesis is told clearly in the following chapters from the life of Noah. There were two grape trees in the midst of the Garden. That is why we are participating in the bread and the wine till He comes. Satan has cleverly removed the ‘wine’ from some churches. Removing the ‘wine’ means no life and that is why Jesus said,’if you don’t participate you have no part with Me’.
“No one must lightly dismiss the question of race, it is the key to world history … Language and religion do not make a race, only blood does that” Benjamin.
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ we have now come to a most important and interesting part of our study in ‘the first seed’. When we can clearly and rightly divide the word of God with the help of the Holy Spirit every puzzle will fall in the right place. You might have noticed from our last study, Lesson 4, that what happened in Eden and what happened after the deluge is similar and the starting point of a new beginning. Details of the Eden encounter that are hidden are revealed in Noahic encounter. Let us pursue our study once more prayerfully.
Genesis 10 is a prophecy and can be called as a chapter on the “Table of Nations” which is neglected chapter and scarcely studied. Unless we understand properly Genesis 10,we are not going to understand the edenic encounter and the following events and the presence of the ‘Nephilims’ or giants after the flood. There were giants before the Flood and after. What is the meaning of the ‘Sons of God mingled with the Daughters of men and giants were born’? These and other related questions that were not addressed properly should be understood in the light of the Word of God for a proper understanding of the scriptures. In the beginning you may not agree with us but we want to place certain facts which may enlighten you as we go on. Again please note that this is only a research study for interested parties who love the word and is not an essential belief.
Genesis 10, the “Table of Nations”, begins with Noah and possibly his eldest son Japheth. Genesis 10 begins as, “Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham and Japheth” (Gen 10:1). In “Philology” the science of structure and development of languages the three are called as follows:
These are the three parent groups of languages and peoples. Let us study each one of them briefly.
JAPHETH: Japheth literally means “opened” or “expanded” or “enlarged”. His descendents settled all over Europe and the greater part of Asia. Japheth never expanded to Far East.
History has recorded Japheth’s geographical enlargement. The entire Western Hemisphere of our earth is settled by Japhetic peoples. A considerable portion of the Asian continent is also settled by Japhetic peoples.
Japheth was the eldest son of Noah. The prophesy of God through Noah predicted that “God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem” Gen 9: 27. Two things are predicted here
i) he should be enlarged;
ii) he should dwell in the tents of Shem or should receive the blessing from Shem.
History proves the accuracy of this prophecy. Those nations which have been most enlarged by God have descended from Japheth (e.g. the Indians, Greeks and the Romans)
“And he shall dwell in the tents of Shem” intimates that Japheth was to be Shem’s guest. How remarkably this prophecy has been fulfilled! The Old Testament was written in Hebrew, a Semitic language. But the New Testament was written in a Japhetic tongue, namely the Greek. But it was penned by Jewish fingers. Thus we see Japheth dwelling in the tents of Shem”.
Genesis 10 begins with Noah and his eldest son Japheth. Seven sons of Japheth are mentioned.
GOMER: The eldest son of Japheth, literally means ‘perfect’ or ‘completion’. He is the progenitor of the early Cimmerians and other branches of the celtic family. He settled in Eastern Europe near the Black Sea. He became theGauls/French,Gaels/scots,Celts/Irish,Goths/Germans/Scandinavians,Saxons/Britons/Welsh,Dutch, Armenians, Romans and related groups.
MAGOG: The second son of Japheth, means “overtopping” or “covering”. He settled first in Georgia, a region between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea south of Caucasus Mountains. He became the Scythians, Russians, Belorussians and Ukrainians.
MADAI: The third son of Japheth means “middle land”. He settled in north west of Persia (now Iraq), southwest of Caspian Sea, east of Armenia and Assyria, and in the north part of Iran. He is the father of Medes and East Indians.
JAVAN: The fourth son of Japheth, means “effervescing” or “bubbling”. His sons settled in Cyprus, Rhodes, and other islands and coasts of the Mediterranean and the coast of Spain, Italy and Portugal. He is the father of Ionians and the Greeks.
TUBAL: The fifth son of Japheth, means, “thou shalt be led”. In the Assyrian inscriptions the name appears as ‘Tabal’ or ‘Tubla’. The city of Tobolsk was named after him. He settled near Cappadocia in Asia Minor. He is the father of Bulgarians, Hungarians, Albanians, Romanians and other related groups.
MESHECH: The sixth son of Japheth means,”led along”. The city of Moscow (Muskovi) is named after him. Meshech and Tubal are always coupled in the Old Testament. He settled initially in northern Turkey south east of the Caspian Sea. He is the father of the Poles, Finns, Slovaks (Czechs, Yugoslavs) and related groups.
TIRAS: The seventh son or the youngest son of Japheth means, “desire”. He settled around the Aegean Sea. He is the father of Thracians, maritime groups and possibly the Etruscans of Italy.
These were the seven sons of Japheth. An understanding of them is going to help us in our meditation on the ‘first seed’.
“And the sons of Gomer: Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah” Gen 10: 3
ASHKENAZ: The first son of Gomer means, “spreading fire”. He settled first in Armenia migrating thence to Bithynia, the northern islands of Europe and European West Coast: Germany, Scandinavia and Denmark.
RIPHATH: The second son of Gomer means,”slander” or “fault”. He settled in Czechoslovakia, Romania and Turkey.
TOGARMAH: The youngest son of Gomer, means “thou wilt break her”. His descendants became a people engaged in agriculture, breeding horses and mules. They were also a military people, well skilled in the use of arms. He is settled in Armenia.
“And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim and DoDanim” Gen 10: 4
ELISHAH: The eldest son of Javan, meaning ‘God is salvation’. The Greek translation of that name is “Hellas”. His descendants settled in Greece.
TARSHISH: The second son of Javan, meaning, “She will shatter “. He settled in Spain.
KITTIM: Kittim or Chittim was the third son of Javan, meaning, “bruisers”. Kittim settled in Cyprus, other Mediterranean islands and Macedonia.
DODANIM: The fourth son of Javan, meaning “leaders”. He settled in Rhodes.
These were the children and grand children of Japheth through which all the non-semitic races originated.
The tenth chapter of Genesis is the oldest Table of Nations in existence. It is a completely authentic statement of how the present world population originated and spread after the flood in three families headed by Shem, Ham and Japheth (Gen 10: 32). Parentage determines not only individual but also national character.
Japheth means “opened” or “enlarged”. His enlargement, both spiritual and material, stemmed from his baptism into Christ. After Israel was cut-off through unbelief, Japheth succeeded to what Shem had rejected. “When Peter was speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell on all who were listening to the word.” Acts 10: 44
The Japhethites are the true Caucasians, and the Indo-Europeans, a related family of people who are mainly denominated by their languages. Though initially the Japhethites were barbarians and Gentiles their virtue comes from the “root” even our Lord JESUS CHRIST.
NOTE TO THE READERS:
(‘Please look out in the next lesson the very important and interested study on Shem and Ham, which will help us to understand the Eden mystery)
“WHO CONTROLS THE PAST CONTROLS THE FUTURE” – GEORGE ORWELL
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, let us go further into the “Table of Nations”- Genesis 10, to understand the Edenic Mystery. In the last study we were able to look into Japhethites. Now let us study about Shem the blessed son of Noah.
SHEM: Shem was possibly the second son of Noah. The meaning of Shem is “Name” or “reknown”. His descendents are called the “Shemites”. The Shemites are not difficult to identify and included the twelve tribes of Israel descended from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the Arabs, the Lydians who settled in the Asia Minor, the Lebanese, Syrians, Kurds and Iranians, Jordanians (Moabites), the Assyrians of the northern Iraq and the Chaldeans of the southern Iraq.
Therefore it appears that most of the descendants of Shem settled in the Arabian Peninsula. The contribution of Shem has been real in SPIRIT. The inspired word of God was written by Jewish fingers only.
SHEM -> ELAM ASSHUR ARPHAXAD LUD ARAM
ARPHAXAD -> SALAH – EBER
ARAM -> UZ – HUL- GETHER- MASH
EBER -> PELEG- JOKTAN
JOKTAN -> ALMODAD and 12 others
Shem, the second son of Noah, had five sons after the Flood. We are not going to study elaborately about the Shemites since the Shemites are so familiar to us. “Blessed be the Lord god of Shem” Gen 9: 26. The reward of Shem was in the religious privileges. “Lord God of Shem” that is the divine title employed. God was to enter into the covenant relationship with the children of Shem. That realization caused Noah to break forth into thanksgiving-“Blessed be the Lord God of Shem”
ELAM: This was Shem’s eldest son, meaning, “highlands” or “eternity”. He settled east of Babylon and northeast of lower Tigris and north of Persia. He is the father of Kurds and the Iranians.
ASSHUR: The second son of Shem, meaning, “happy” or “blessed” or “successful”. He is the ancestor of the Assyrians or the northern Iraqis.
ARPHAXAD: The third son of Shem, meaning, “he cursed the breast”. He was the most important man as we are concerned being the ancestor of the Hebrews (Israelites), Arabians, Amorites, the ancestor of Chaldeans of southern Iraq, and the Moabites/Jordanians. (See the chart before).
LUD: The fourth son of Shem, meaning, “firebrand” or “travailing”. He is the ancestor of the Lydians who settled in west of Asia Minor. The Lydians spoke an Indo-European language.
ARAM: The fifth or the youngest son of Shem, meaning, “high ground”. He became the Armaeans or Syrians and Lebanese.
UZ: The eldest son of Aram, meaning “counsel”. It was the land of Uz which was the land of Job (Job 1: 1) It seems most likely the area between Babylon and Edom and supposed to be a “wooded” country.
EBER: He was the grandson of Arphaxad and ‘Eber’ means “the region beyond”. We mentioned ‘Eber’ because he was the father of Hebrews. In Luke 3, Eber is mentioned as Heber.
PELEG: The word ‘Peleg’ comes from the root word ‘palag’ which means ‘division’ or ‘to split’. After the flood, it was during the time of Peleg the earth was divided by tongues.
JOKTAN: He was the son of Eber. Joktan means ‘small’ of ‘insignificant’. Joktan is very important because he is the progenitor of thirteen southern Arabic tribes. Among the southern Joktanic Arabic tribes there are two divisions:
JOKTAN (Southern Arabic tribes)
-> Semitic Arabs (pure descendents of Joktan)
->Hamitic Arabs or Mustarabs (Pretended Arabs or mixed Arabic race)
JOKTAN -> AL SHE HAZ JER HAD UZ DIK OB ABI SHE OP HA JOB
____________-MO – LE -ZA -AH -OR -AL -LAH -AL -MA -BA -HIR -VI -AB
__________-DAD -PH __MAVETH__-AM_______________-EL__________-LAH
All these were the descendants of Joktan (Gen. 10: 26-30)
ALMODAD: The name means, “not measured”. He settled in Yemen.
SHELEPH: The meaning of the name is “drawing out”. He became an Yemeni tribe.
HAZARMAVETH: The meaning is “village of death”. He settled in southeast Arabia.
JERAH: The fourth son of Joktan, meaning “new moon”. He settled in southeast Arabia.
HADORAM: The fifth son of Joktan, meaning, “noble honor”. He dwelt in Southern Arabia.
UZAL: The sixth son of Joktan, meaning, “wandering”. He dwelt in Yemen.
DIKLAH: The seventh son of Joktan, meaning, “palm grove”. His descendants settled in the northeastern extremity of the Arabian Peninsula.
OBAL: The eight son of Joktan, meaning, “stripped bare” or “bare mountain”. In Chronicles his name is written as ‘Ebal’. He became an Yemeni tribe.
ABIMAEL: The Ninth son of Joktan, means, “my father is God”. He became a Yemeni tribe.
SHEBA: The tenth son of Joktan, meaning, “seven” or “oath”. He became a Yemeni tribe. The ‘Sabeans’ belonged to the same tribe of ‘Sheba’.
OPHIR: The eleventh son of Joktan, meaning, “reducing to ashes”. He dwelt on the coast of southwest Arabia.
HAVILAH: The twelfth son of Joktan means, “sandy”. He occupied the Eastern Shore of the Gulf of Aquaba.
JOBAB: The thirteen or the youngest son of Joktan, which means, “desert”. He settled close to Mecca.
These were the sons of Joktan from whom some of the Arabic tribes came.
” These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood” Genesis 10: 32.
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, we have now come to a very important point in our research study, ‘The first seed’. If we could really understand we can find answer to a lot of puzzling questions in the scriptures.
We are going to consider now ‘HAM’ the third son of Noah, and we are going to see how again the giants were found after the deluge and the reason for ‘CANNAN’, the son of Ham to be cursed by Noah. Please keep an open mind and follow us through the mysteries in the early chapters of Genesis.
HAM: The youngest son of Noah was called ‘HAM’. HAM means ‘hot-blooded’ or ‘passionate’. Explosives, medical techniques, mechanical principles, food, the use of electricity, virtually anything technological in nature- leads us to Hamitic people. Ham contributed towards the development of civilization in its more material aspects. This is how the three children of Noah contributed to the human civilization.
The contribution of SHEM has been in the realm of SPIRIT. The Semites fingers especially the Hebrew fingers wrote the Word of God and to them God revealed His purposes.
The contribution of JAPHETH has been in the realm of THOUGHT. The Japhites were great thinkers or philosophers. When the Japhethites combined with the Semites, theology emerged. When the Japhethites combined with the Hamites Science emerged.
Japhethites + Semites ® THEOLOGY
Japhethites + Hamites® Science
Semites + Hamites ® Giants (Nephilims)
The contribution of HAM has been primarily PHYSICAL or PRACTICAL. Out of HAM have been derived most of the so-called colored races- Yellow, red, brown and black- the Mongoloid and the Negroid.
HAM literally means “warm” or “passionate”. Ham first established himself in Africa; more particularly in Egypt.
“And smote all the first born in Egypt: the chief of their strength in the tabernacle of Ham:” Psalms 78: 51
“Israel also came into Egypt; and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham” Psalm 105: 23
“Wondrous works in the land of Ham, and terrible things by the Red Sea” Psalms 106: 22.
The three most illustrious Hamitic nations- the cushites, the Phoenicians (cananites) and the Egyptians- were greatly mixed with foreign peoples. However, Ham’s descendants were the first people to emigrate to the islands and the Americas (Red Indians). Therefore, not only in Africa with the black races, but the Far East, the Americas, and other island nations with their colored races were all the descendants of Ham. Hamitic people were the first to reach the far and distant lands. “And afterwards were the families of the Cannanites spread abroad “Genesis 10: 18
Religiously Ham gained prominence. Scripture identifies it with Satan completely which we will be discussed later on. Ham’s religion is the basis for every system of the idolatry, mythology. The only difference is the names of the various gods but the theme is the same.
HAM -> CUSH, MIZRAIM, PHUT, CANAAN
CUSH: The name Cush means ‘black’. The color ‘black’ may stand as a metaphor for ‘wickedness’ or ‘terror’. Cush settled first in Shinar (Babylon), then South Arabia, and moved to South Egypt, Sudan and northern Ethiopia.
Now ‘Cush’ was called ‘Bel’, the chief god of Babylon (Isa 46: 1; Jer 50: 2; Jer 51: 44). In the Egyptian culture ‘Bel’ was called ‘Hermes’. According to history ‘Hermes’ was also called as ‘Mercury’. (Read Acts 14: 11-12)
Therefore, ‘Cush’ was deified; that is, men were deified by men. ‘Cush’ was the father of such polytheistic system and ‘Cush’ purported to bring revelations and interpretations from the gods to the people. ‘Bel’ was called by many names such as ‘Baal’,’Belus’, ‘Hermes’, ‘Janus’, ‘Chaos’, ‘Mercury’ etc. among the ancient peoples.
“And Cush begat Nimrod” (Gen 10: 8). ‘Nimrod’ literally means ‘the rebel’. He was the one who was responsible for the Great Rebellion at Babel and founding the very features of paganism by introducing magic, astrology and human sacrifice.
When Nimrod died, his wife ‘Semiramis’ deified him and made herself as the ‘mother of the son’ and also the ‘mother of the gods’. Thus crept the mother and son worship in the church. Mary was deified without sin and called ‘the Mother of God’. The church forgot the Word of God ‘Mary was overshadowed by the Holy Spirit’ and thus was kept ‘holy’. She became the ‘mother of other children through Joseph later on.
Now, ‘Semiramis’ called Nimrod as ‘Zeroashta’ which means ‘the woman’s seed’ and thus Satan tried to confuse the fake seed with the real seed.
After Nimrod’s death, Semiramis is said to have ruled 42 years his kingdom. In the process she was able to conquer Persia, Libya and Ethiopia but was unable to conquer India alone.
“And the sons of Cush: Seba, and Havilah, and Sabtah and Raamah, and Sabtecha” Gen 10:7
SEBA: He was the first born of ‘Cush’. His name means, “drink up”. Some render him as the founder of the nation of the ‘Sabeans’ which is Yemen. Some consider him settled between the Nile and its affluent the Atbara. Some consider him settled in the heart of Africa.
HAVILAH: The name means, “Sandy”. He settled on the eastern coast of northern Arabia near present day KUWAIT.
SABTAH: The name means, “compassing the mark”. He settled in the eastern coast of Southern Arabia.
RAAMAH: The name means “thunder” He settled on the east coast of Southern Arabia, possibly the present day OMAN.
SABTECHAH: The name means, “striking”. He settled in YEMEN. “And the sons of Raamah : Sheba and Dedan” (Gen 10: 7)
SHEBA: The name means “an oath”. He settled north of Yemen in a fertile land.
DEDAN: the name means “low country”. He settled in the United Arab Emirates in the Persian Gulf.
That would make the descendants of ‘Cush’ the son of ‘Ham’.
Now, let us go to the second son of Ham namely, ‘Mizraim’.
MIZRAIM: The name is a plural word meaning, “the two Mazors” or “forts” and indicates the culture and division of his people into upper and lower Egypt where he settled in North Africa.
“And Mizraim begat Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and Naphtuhim, and Pathrusim, and Casluhim(out of whom came Philistim) and Caphtorim.” Gen 10: 13,14
LUDIM: The name literally means “firebrand”. They settled in Libya on the northern coast of Africa.
ANAMIM: The name means “affliction of the waters”. They settled in the Nile delta.
LEHABIM: The name means “flames”. They settled in Libya.
NAPHTUHIM: The name means “openings”. This people are known to have settled in the Nile Delta.
PATHRUSIM: The name means “moistened morsel”. They settled in ‘Pathros’ in Upper Egypt.
CASLUHIM: The name means, “forgiven ones”. They are the ‘Colchihans’ of the Egyptian town ‘Chemnis’, ‘Panoplis’ in northern Egypt. The ‘philistim’ came from them.
PHILISTIM: The name means ‘immigrants’. These people so called ‘Philistines’ migrated from Upper Egypt and occupied the lower part of the Mediterranean coast belonging to Shem.
CAPHTORIM: The name means “knob” or “bud”. They also migrated from Upper Egypt to the lower part of the Mediterranean coast belonging to Shem. And mingled with the Philistines and are called as the ‘Philistines’.
These are the descendants of Mizraim the second son of ‘Ham’
PHUT: He was the third son of Ham. The name means “a bow”. The name is found in the list of the sons of Ham in Gen 10:6 and I Chron 1:8. His sons settled in Libya and are called the ‘Cyrenaeans’ and North Africans. “And they compel one Simon a Cyrenian, who passed by, the father of Alexander and Rufus to bear His cross” Mark 15: 21. So it was the Cyrenian Simon who helped JESUS to carry the cross. They were the “archers”. (Jer 46: 9)
NOTE: The serpents seed can be traced through the fourth son of Ham namely ‘Cannan’. Plese read the next lesson.
“…. Cursed be Cannan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren ” Gen 9: 25
“There were giants in the earth in those days; and also After that ….the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown” Gen 6:4
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, we WISH YOU ALL A VERY BLESSED AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR. It is going to be an eventful year especially for the believers. Preaching the Gospel is not going to be easy all over the world and especially in India. Political situation in India is going to change in an unexpected manner since our Lord’s coming is very imminent. “Even the very Elect will be deceived” says the word of God. Be watchful and prayerful. We request your continued prayers and support in this New Year. God bless you.
We have come to an important section in understanding the word of God. Again, I write to you humbly, that it is only a research study and not a fundamental doctrinal truth. But I believe a right understanding of the word of God will help you a long way. “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” II Tim 2:15
Many questions arise in our minds as to why there were Giants (Nephilims) before and after the flood? What is the meaning of ‘strange flesh’? Can the ‘Angels of God’ cohibit with the humans? Why Noah after the flood cursed Cannan who was the son of Ham and not the other children of Ham? Why God asked the Israelites, His chosen people, not to mingle with the Cannanites? From where came Goliath, the giant who was destroyed by David? And so on. I believe we are nearing the answers to all our questions and if we study with an open mind the word if God together, we may reach our destination.
In our last three articles, we studied, the “TABLE OF NATIONS” which all came through the three children of Noah, namely, ‘Shem, Ham, Japheth’. As there was a beginning in Eden, so, there was another beginning after the flood with Noah’s family. So the events recorded after the flood describe to what happened in Eden before. Now God cursed the ‘conception ‘ when he cursed Eve, the mother of all living. The serpent’s seed was conceived in Eden when they participated the false vine and were drunk and naked. When Satan seduced Eve and injected his seed through the serpent. That was Cain and he is the son of Satan. That is why God changed the anatomy (structure) of the serpent so that it may never happen again. So Cain’s descendants were the children of the serpents seed. That was the reason for ‘giants’ before the flood when Cain’s seed mingled with the Adam’s true seed. Now, in Gen 6:4 it is written, “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” commonly it is believed that ‘sons of god’ mean ‘Angels’ because of some passages like in the book of Job where it is written, “When the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy?” (Job 38: 7) That is true and what is said in Job was spoken by God Himself about the creation of the EARTH. At that time there was no sin in heaven, and the sons of God that is angels by creation where the ‘sons of God’ (like Adam was called the ‘Son of God’ by creation). They were all holy and without sin and they were created to praise and glorify the Lord which they did in the beginning. After that sin entered through ‘Satan’ who was called a ‘morning star’ and leader of all the ‘morning stars’ when he rebelled against God and fell from his original exalted position, took with him a third part of the heavenly host and became an enemy of God. Now, the term ‘sons of god’ may mean holy or evil angels, which were all, created by God. So what you read in Gen 6 : 4 must mean the mingling of descendants of the evil angels and the descendants of pure Adamic race (‘daughters of men’). In other words, the descendants of the evil angels, were the Cain’s races. When the Cain’s race mixed with the pure Adamic race, giants were born (abnormality). That is why the bible calls the antichrist as a ‘composite Beast’, a ‘beast’ which cannot be described in human language. Now, the first man born, Cain, was a ‘beast’ because he was born to the ‘beast’ (serpent) so called because it was originally a different creature, and to ‘Eve’, the one made by the hand of God. Afterwards, such a mingling was not possible because God changed the structure of the serpent. Now, evil Angels cannot directly cohibit with daughters of men. They need a MEDIUM. That is why Satan spoke to Eve through the medium, the serpent. Satan or his followers, the evil angels, cannot reproduce as God did by the power of the Holy Ghost. They are all created beings and they have no creative powers of their own. ONLY GOD CAN CREATE. That is why Satan needed medium and seduced Eve. When God saw that, God put a stop to that evil by changing the form of the serpent. Now it is not possible at all. That is why Gen 6: 4 is not speaking of Angels mingling with daughters of men where giants were born. Angels are spirit beings and humans are fleshly. How they can mingle? They need an intermedium. That intermedium was Cain’s descendants or the serpent’s seed.
Now, God saw everything was wicked and wanted to destroy the earth. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. He and his family were only saved. Now, how the ‘giants’ came after the flood? The flood destroyed everyone of them? How could it happen again? Where was the serpent’s seed during the Flood and after that? My friend, please read the next lesson for the continuation of the serpent’s seed after the Flood?
” I will put enmity between thy seed and the seed of the woman” Gen 3:15
The tenth chapter of Genesis is the Oldest table of nations in existence. It is completely authentic statement of how the present world population originated and spread after the Flood in three families headed by Shem, Ham and Japheth.
Why among all the four children of Ham, Canan the fourth one should be cursed? What is the reason? It is because exactly what happened in Eden was repeated after the Flood? Like Cain was not the son of Adam, Canan was not born to Ham’s real wife but to Noah’s wife after they were drunk in the vineyard which Noah planted. The story is this. Noah’s first wife who was the mother of Shem, Ham and Japheth died before the Flood. The woman or the wife of Noah who was in the ark during the Flood and after that was Naamah, his second wife. Naamah belonged to the cursed race of Cain. “The sister of Tubal-Cain was Naamah” Gen4: 22. Incidentally the Bible mentions the names of only four women before the Flood. They were
- ZILLAH and
And you can see all of them come under the descendancy of Cain. Of course, Eve, being the mother of all living. Here is the mingling of the serpent’s seed with the human race. Why these four women names should be mentioned? The Bible doesn’t mention anything without a valid reason.
I have with me a copy of the ‘Book of Jasher’ which has been referred to in Joshua and in second Samuel. I don’t know how far the book I have is authentic but the ‘Book of Jasher’ is certainly a book to be noted since the word of God mentions it. The ‘Book of Jasher’ is a public record (public register) in those days to note down important events and notable incidents that happened in the history of mankind. This has 91 chapters and is said to be faithfully translated in 1840 from the original Hebrew to English. This has been updated in February 21, 2000 and published by J.H.Parry & Co; salt Lake City.
Now the Bible says, “This is the book of the generations of Adam, in the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him” Gen5: 1 Then, it goes on to describe the descendants of SETH, the son of Adam, who was born after Abel was murdered by Cain.
ADAM® SETH® ENOS® CAINAN® Mahalaleel…. Now, in the Book of Jasher, in the second chapter, a little more explanation is given of that Adamic race. It may help us all the way to understand the mingling of pure Adamic race and Cain’s serpent race before the Flood which made to destroy all except Noah’s family through the flood. Now, it is only a Bible research study and if you don’t wont to believe doesn’t matter but think for a moment before dropping this littlework which may help you to understand many things later on which happened and mentioned in the scriptures.
I am quoting from the second chapter of the book of Jasher. ” And Enos lived Ninety years and he begat Cainan; And Cainan grew up and he was forty years old, and he became wise and he had knowledge and skill in all wisdom….for Cainan was a very wise man and had understanding in all wisdom, and with his wisdom he ruled over spirits and demons; And Cainan knew by his wisdom that God would destroy men for having sinned upon earth, and that the Lord would bring the waters of the flood. … And when Cainan was seventy years old he begat three sons and daughters” Gen 5: 13) And these are the names of the children of Cainan; the name of the first born Mahalaleel, the second Enan, and the third Mered, and their sisters were Adah and Zillah; these are the five children of Cainan that were born to him.
And Lamech, (Cain’s race, refer Gen 4:18-24) the son of Methusael, became related to Cainan by marriage, and he took his two daughters for his wives, and Adah conceived and bare a son to Lamech, and she called his name Jabal. And she again conceived and bare a son and called his name Jubal; and Zillah her sister was barren in those days and had no offspring. …. And in the end of days and years, when Zillah became old, the Lord opened her womb. And she conceived and bare a son and she called his name Tubal Cain…. And she conceived again and bare a daughter and she called her name Naamah” (Book of Jasher 2nd chapter versus 10 to 25). Thus there was the mingling of the pure Adamic race with Cain’s race even before Enoch’s time.
CAINAN + LAMECH(Cain’s race) ®
JABAL, JUBAL, TUBAL CAIN and NAAMAH(daughter of Zillah)
CAINAN -> ADAH, ZILLAH(pure Adamic race)
This Naamah was in the ark. Therefore, the serpent’s seed was in the ark being the second wife of Noah. That is how the giants came after the flood.
Now, Noah and his wife, Naamah, became drunk, after sometime after the flood. By that time Ham had three children ‘Cush, Mizram and Phut’. How long after the flood we cannot say but it was certainly within a short period. That time Cannan was not born to HAM. When Noah and his wife Naamah were drunk, Ham saw the nakedness of his father’s beautiful wife. (LEV 18:8) To uncover the nakedness of father’s wife is uncovering the nakedness of father according to Lev 18:8 and I think the story of Eden was repeated. Once Noah was awake, he understood what Ham had done, and cursed the conception that was Canan. As God cursed the conception of Eve because Satan’s seed was injected, similarly Satan’s seed was injected in Canan.
So not all of Ham’s descendants were involved in the curse, only Canan and his descendants.
HAM + NAAMAH ® CANAN
(Noah’s son pure (Cain’s race) (serpent’s seed propagation)
Noah did not after become the father of any child after the flood. Naamah was not the mother of Shem, Ham and Japheth. She was the mother of ‘Canan’ only and that was the reason for cursing Canan and the Cananites.
Ham’s curse fell upon Canan. Noah could not abort his wife’s birth for he knew “if slaying Cain brought a sevenfold vengence, truly slaying Canan might bring seventy times sevenfold punishment” (Gen 4: 22-24) So Noah could only curse Canan.
That was the reason for God to instruct Moses and the children of Israel to destroy all the Cananites. We begin to understand why Cain and his children, including Canan and his descendants, were doubly cursed in conception and in their lineage. “Twice dead, plucked up by the roots”(Jude 11-12) God separated Shem as his portion, to be the holy nation interceding for the gentiles of Japheth and Ham. God always separates the sacred from the profane.
Canan was cursed and scattered, and the land he had occupied and cultivated was covenanted by God to Israel. (Gen12: 1-7) In the natural Cananites were God’s enemies. In the spiritual, Cananites means the ‘old man’. God destroys the works of the Devil.
“There were giants in the earth in those days before the flood (the children of Cain); and also after the flood (the children of Canan)” Our English Bibles render “Nephilim” as “giants”. The word comes from Hebrew “Naphal” which means, “to fall” hence “the fallen ones ” the descendants of Cain. Afterwards the term is transferred to their offspring. The only other passage the word “Nephilim” occurs is Numbers 13: 32-33.
Canan receives his first biblical definition in the Table of nations as the father of Sidon and Heth, of the Jebusites, Amorites, Girgasites, Hivites, Arkites, Sinites, Arvadites, Zemarites, and the Hamathites. The five names following Sidon were the inhabitants of the promised Land (Exod 13:5)
Dear Brother and Sisters in Christ! Now, we understand how giants were born before the flood. That was because of the mingling of Cain’s seed (the serpent’s seed) with pure Adamic race. After the Flood it was the mingling of the Cananites (serpent’s seed born to Ham and Noah’s second wife) with pure Adamic race, giants were born. Now, God eliminated all the giants after the Flood through Israelites (His chosen seed) and through His chosen person like Samson, David etc. Canan was Noah’s “secret”, like Cain was Adam’s “secret”. And Noah fathered no children after the flood and the Lord did not talk to Noah for 350 years after the flood till Noah’s death because there is no recorded communication between Noah and God after the flood. Like the serpent’s seed God had destroyed in the Flood, and those He would instruct Moses and the children of Israel to destroy when encountered in the Promised Land. Being a prophet, Noah foresaw the future and he cursed Canan to be a “servant of servants” a term meaning “lowest of the low” as God had cursed his forefather, the serpent. Like Cain, Canan would try to usurp the dominion of God gave Adam and over his kin over this world.
Under the law, the token of covenant was circumcision. A bastard such as Moab or Ben-ami even in the righteous line of Lot, would not be circumcised by the priest, permitted to marry an Israelite woman or be buried with his people. Therefore he was excluded from the covenant. Canan was also cursed and also scattered and the land he had occupied and cultivated (as a servant of servants) was covenanted by God to Israel (Gen 12:1-17; 15:13-21; 17:7-8)
Numbers 21:1-3 “And when the king of Arad, the Cananite, who dwelt in the south learned Israel came via Atharim, the way of the spies; he fought against them, taking prisoners. And Israel vowed to the Lord that if He would deliver the king and his people, they would utterly destroy their cities.
And the Lord heeded their supplication, defeating the Cananites; and Israel utterly destroyed them and their cities: and God called the name of the place Hormah”(devoted or dedicated)
Devoting something to God for utter destruction as a sacrifice is demanded by His Holiness such was a destruction of Canan (Numbers 21:1-3; 21-35; Deut 2:32, 3:6) king Saul of Israel made his fatal mistake when he spared the life of Agag, king of the Amalekites and kept alive the best of their livestock. God instructed them to utterly slay off the Cananites but to save the kindred of Adam’s race. (Deut 20:10-18) Israel failed to worship God and preserved the Cananites alive. That is why they are under trouble even to-day.
shall come to pass, that in the new heavens and new earth, “the saved” of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the king, the Lord of Hosts, and to celebrate the ingathering… And in that day there shall be no more a Cananite in the house of the Lord” (Zech 14: 16,20-21)
The Cananites so were cursed because of their origin. Thus the serpent’s seed propagated through Canan after the Flood. Therefore God exterminated the Cananites through the Israelites. Therefore God said to the Israelites, “When the Lord thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and cast out many nations before thee, the Hitites, and the Girgashites and the Amorites, and the Cannanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou; and when the Lord thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them. (Deut 7:1,2) Why should the Lord be so angry with the Cananites? Are they not his created people? No. Because of the serpent’s seed the Lord has nothing to do with them.
“Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works: but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, and quite break down their images” Exod 23:24
The chief Cananite god in the biblical times was Baal. His wife was Ashtarat, goddess of battle. As weather god, Baal held the key to good harvests. That is why prophet Elijah challenged Baal on Mt.Carmel and won the victory. But Israel went woring after Baal and made covenant with Jebusites that God could completely fulfill His plan with them. And so He sent His servant like David to utterly destroy them.
There was an interesting incident that happened in the life of Jesus when He was here on earth “Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon. And behold a woman of Canan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto Him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord; thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.
But He answered her not a word. And His disciples came and besought Him, saying, send her away; for she crieth after us.
But He answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
Then came she and worshiped him, saying, Lord, help me. But He answered and said, it is not meet to take the children’s bread , and to cast it to dogs .
And she said, Truth , Lord: Yet the dogs eat of the crumbs that fall from their master’s table.
Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.” (Matthew 15:21-28)
There are tremendous implications in this passage. We can understand this passage clearly only if we understand about Canan. It describes the only occasion on which Jesus ever went outside Jewish territory. There was no place in Palestine where He could be sure of privacy; wherever He went, the crowds would find Him. So He went right north through Galilee until he came to the land of Tyre and Sidon where the Phoenicians dwelt. The ‘Cananites were called ‘Phoenicians’ by the Greeks.
But even in these Cananite cities Jesus was not free. There was a woman who had a daughter afflicted grievously. She followed Him and His disciples crying desperately for help. At first Jesus did not pay any attention to her because she addressed Him wrongly, as ‘Son of David’ meant nothing being a Cananite woman. Secondly she addressed Him as ‘Lord’ to which He responded. “It is not right to take the children’s bread and to throw it to dogs”. To call a person dog was a deadly insult. Why Jesus used such a harsh language at this woman? Isn’t it that she asked only help? And the funny thing was that the woman acknowledged that she is a ‘dog’. She did not get angry by the term ‘dog’; she accepted it and she received what she wanted from Jesus. It is doubtful that the women was ‘saved’ from her sins but certainly her daughter was ‘saved’ from her illness.
Jesus called the cananite ‘dog’ because of her descendancy being born in the family of Canan. Now, if you are reading these articles on the ‘The first seed’, You will know that ‘Canan’ was born to Ham, the son of Noah, and Noah’s second wife ‘Naamah’ (Cain’s race), after the flood, when they were drunk with wine and lay naked in the vineyard just like Adam and Eve in the Eden. Ham seduced or uncovered the nakedness of his father’s wife. When Noah saw that after he awoke, he cursed the conception ‘Canan’ who was to be born as Ham’s fourth son after the flood to him and Naamah (belonging to Cain’s race). Jesus knew that. The Cananite woman knew that history.
In the story of David and Goliath, the giant Goliath, the Philistine (Cananite) says to David, “Am I a dog, that thou comest to me with staves? ” I sam 17:43 The fact is, when a female prostitutes, she is called a ‘harlot’ but when a male, prostitutes, he is called ‘a dog’. This was in usage from olden times. The Cananites were ‘dogs’ because Ham prostituted with Naamah and as such propagating the serpent’s seed through ‘Canan’. In Rev 22:14 it is written, “Blessed are they that do His commandments……. For without are dogs , and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie ” Remember my friend! JESUS is called ‘the TRUTH’ whereas the Antichrist is called the ‘Lie’ “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own for he is a liar and the father of it” John 8; 44
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, this article is our last article in our research study ‘the first seed’. I hope and wish that you will continue to meditate on the Word of God without any prejudice or any pre-conceived idea. The Holy Spirit of God will help you to divide rightly the word of truth!
In the book of Revelation, the Antichrist is given a threefold appellation, (Rev 9:11), namely,
I. King over the locusts
II .The Angel of the Abyss
III. The destroyer
Let us look at the opening verse of Rev 9 where a ‘Star’ is falling from heaven to the earth, unto whom is given the key of the Bottomless Pit. The ‘Star’ we believe refers to Lucifer or ‘morning star’. The fall of Lucifer here is not the Original fall (where he lost his estate) but to the fall referred in Rev 12: 9 where Michael the archangel, clears the second heaven by warring with Lucifer and his angels and sending them hurtling down to earth. The fact that the key of the Abyss is given to him is because that during the Tribulation Period (God allows him free rein and suffers him to do his worst.
Out of the well of the Bottomless Pit comes a kind of internal Cherubim and their number is given as two hundred thousand thousand. These are definitely a part of the fallen angels now imprisoned in Tartarus or the well of the Bottomless Pit. They have a ‘king’ who is called ‘the angel of the Bottomless Pit ‘ is the only ‘son of Satan’ conceived to Eve in Eden and the serpent, the ‘serpent’s seed’ or first seed or commonly called the ‘Antichrist’. He has a mark upon him put by God when he killed his brother, Abel, and we believe that mark is ‘666’ ‘Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man and his number is Six hundred three score six (Rev 13: 18) He is a beast as also man and that we believe could be only Cain and later on after the flood Canan conceived to Ham and Naamah (Cain’s race)
The same is told in detail in II Peter 2 and the epistle of Jude.
“For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto Judgment: (II Pet 2:4) This is one group, a part of the fallen angels.
“And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;” (II Pet 2: 5) This is the second group, the mixed race, giants, destroyed by the flood except Noah and his family.
“And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;” (II Pet 2:6) This is the third group, the people of Sodom and Gommarrah, the Cananite race, destroyed by fire and brimstone for God had promised to Noah that He would never destroy again by the flood.
This is also remarked in the General Epistle of Jude.
“And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness until the Judgment of the great day”(Jude v6)
The Judgment of the great day may mean the great and fearful day of the Lord or the Vial Judgments. They may be used as His agents on that day before being thrown into the lake of fire.
It is indeed solemn to discover that the very first man born into this world is the Man of Sin. Just like Christ’s Second Coming, there will be a Second Coming of ‘Cain’. The scripture says ‘The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit” Rev 17:8. At Christ’s Second Coming, He shall descend with His saints; At Antichrist’s Second Coming, He shall ascend with infernal locusts.
In seven respects, we can see the picture of Antichrist in Cain.
1. IIn I John 3:12 we are told that ‘Cain was of that ‘wicked one’ i.e. the ‘Devil’ Of none other that name ‘wicked one’ is used.
2. Cain was a religious hypocrite. When the Lord refused his bloodless offering, he was ‘very wroth’ (Gen. 4:5). Cain as Antichrist similarly will first claim to be ‘Christ’, later on as His denier.(I John 2:22)
3. Cain was a ruler. ‘Unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him’ (Gen 4:7) that is, over Abel the righteous seed. In the latter days Cain will rule over Israel.
4. Cain was a murderer. In the last days Cain will murder many of those who do not take his mark ‘666’.
5. Cain was a liar. Deceit and falsehood will characterize the antichrist. (II Thes 2:11)
6. God’s Judgment descended upon Cain. In the last days the antichrist will think that he can defy God and slay His people. But it will not be so.
7. Cain exclaimed, ‘My punishment is greater than I can bear’ (Gen 4:13). He did not repent He was only worried about his judgment. Finally the Antichrist will be ‘cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone'( Rev 19:20)
