Adam Was Not The Father of Cain or Abel
Many Christians for centuries have believed that Adam was the first man and Eve the first woman. That God created Adam first and then Eve, who came from Adam. "And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul... And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man." (1)
Without controversy, Christians believe that Cain was born to Eve first, and then Abel. However, Christians diverge in their beliefs of the father of Cain. Most believe that Cain and Abel were fathered by Adam. Others believe, more correctly, that this is half true and half false. Abel WAS fathered by Adam, but Cain by another, which is what the Bible relates. "And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord." (2)
Adam and Man As Hebrew Word 120 Are Interchangeable
The first use of the word "man" in the Bible is in Genesis 1:26: "And God said, Let us make man..." The first use of the word "Adam" in the Bible is in Genesis 2:19: "And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam..." Both "Adam" and "man" have identical meanings. They are the same Hebrew word. The famous Dr. James Strong (Author of Strong's Concordance of the Bible) assigns number 120 to the Hebrew word for "Adam" and "man" and they are used interchangeably throughout the Bible. There is an axiom in geometry that says that if A is equal to C and B is equal to C then A and B are equal. This principle is believed to be universal.
For example, we can say that "man" [word 120] and "Adam" [word 120] are equal. Adam is man and man is Adam: interchangeable. So in Genesis 1:26, for example, Moses could have written Adam instead of man. But "man" in Genesis 4:1 is a different Hebrew word and is not interchangeable with "Adam man."
Moses Writes Word 376 Not 120
When Eve said after knowing Adam, "...I have gotten a man from the Lord." (3) She was under the belief that this man, Cain, was not born of Adam. Because she did not say in verse 2 that Abel was of the Lord. Why, then, was Cain singled out as being of the Lord? The only meaningful conclusion is that Eve knew what happened in the Garden of Eden when she was "beguiled" by the serpent. "...And the woman [Eve] said, The serpent beguiled me..." (4)
Therefore, she concluded that her beguiling experience with the Serpent [Satan; Revelation 12:9] whom she thought [wrongly] was the Lord God, conceived Cain. But when she knew Adam (5) and bore Abel (verse 2), reference was not made to the Lord God because she knew that Adam had fathered Abel. Which leads to the question: Where is the Biblical evidence that Cain was fathered by Adam? Thus, we can clearly see that Moses, who was under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, gave a vital key to understanding the father of Cain. Moses was prompted in his spirit to clarify in word what could be misunderstood in language. In other words, God used Moses to clarify the spoken word "man" uttered by Eve to imply not race, but gender. Moses, consequently, wrote not the Hebrew 120 [Adam man] but instead the Hebrew 376 [male]. Hebrew words 120 and 376 are not interchangeable. Moses could only draw attention to the male gender of Cain and not to his race, for he was not fathered by Adam.
The Hebrew Words 120 and 376 Are Not Equal
Word 120 - This is the word of the Hebrew language for Adam, pronounced "aw-dawm." It is a word designating race not gender or sex. For example, the following quotes from the Gesenius Hebrew - Chaldee Lexicon of The Old Testament establishes the racial strength found in Adam man: Man [perhaps so called from the idea of redness (the Arabs distinguish two races of men; one red, ruddy, which we call white, the other black.). It has neither state nor plural form; but it is very often used collectively, to denote men, the human race, (6)].
The New Brown Driver Briggs Gesenius Hebrew English Lexicon (BDB) adds these thoughts to those of Gesenius: "Man, mankind, a man [human being], seldom man opposed to woman, collectively mankind."
The root word of 120, according to Dr. James Strong, is 119. By looking at the historical usage [lexicon] of this word, a pattern of definite racial history unfolds for Adam man. Again quoting from Genesis: Word 119 - To be red, ruddy. (Also, to be fair, handsome).
Thus we can now see why Adam man (120) is identifying a race, a race that is of ruddy complexion and rosy cheeks, whose males are often referred to as handsome. Looking closely at word 376, the Hebrew focus is upon gender - not race.
This is an important distinction. Moses wrote not a word signifying heritage when Eve spoke "man," but another word correctly expressing the situation "male." Moses, therefore, was expressing this thought as the Holy Spirit interpreted Eve's words, "I have gotten a male (376) from the Lord."
The English spelling of this Hebrew word is "iysh" and is pronounced "eech." Consider the historical meaning of word 376, "iych": Word 376 - First of all, this word is never translated Adam because it does not mean Adam. Secondly, both Hebrew Lexicons referenced earlier, define word 376 as "a male." Quoting from these Lexicons:
From Gesenius: "A man. Specially a) opposed to woman, a male, b) a husband, opposed to a wife. c) opposed to an old man, it is the name of virile age."
From BDB: "Man opposed to woman, emphasis on sexual distinction & relation, husband."
Man in his gender [male] is the meaning of word 376. So, husband and male are proper translations of this word. There is no way to identify the race of the male from this word. That must be determined by the context of the verse.
The point is that Moses chose to describe Eve's announcement of the birth of Cain as a man of male gender rather than an Adam man or male of the Adamic [White] race. Why? He did it to be consistent with events surrounding the fathering of Cain. Cain was a male, but not of Adamic male. This is why God calls Adam and Eve, Adam in Genesis 5:2. They were Adamic. This is why Cain is not found in the lineage of Adam in Genesis 5. He is not Adamic. Cain was not fathered by Adam; therefore, word 120 could not be used. The only word Moses could use was that which describes accurately Cain, male. This is why John could write in 1 John 3:12: "Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one..."
Keep in mind that Adam and Eve at this time appears to have still been glorious creatures, clothed in light, having no blood in their veins for their life was in the Spirit of God which He had breathed into their nostrils and Adam became a living soul. "And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and man became a living soul." (7)
But after this great deception [beguiled Eve] by telling her that she would not surely die but would become as god's and know good from evil. "Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he [The serpent, Satan] said unto the woman [Eve], Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as Gods, knowing good and evil. And the Woman [Eve] saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband [Adam] with her; and he did eat...And the Lord God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, the serpent beguiled me, and I did eat." (8)
Even to this day women still are trying to be gods. Is that not what they do when they make the decision between life and death of their unborn child, the decision as to whether to have an abortion or not? In too many cases, they are supported by their "Adam," their husband!
It was at that time their clothing of light and life died out of them whose source was the Holy Spirit of God which was withdrawn because of sin. And a transmutation took place in their bodies that transformed them into creatures of flesh and blood. In short, Adam found himself reduced to the same level as the other races of mankind he was created to reign over in his glorious body, and Adam became a condemned and dying soul at his fall.
Many skeptics will say at this time - This is nothing but pure supposition. Well we would point out that there is no mention, in the Bible, of Adam and Eve's dying until they ate of the forbidden fruit.
Therefore, it would appear to any thinking person that, Adam and Eve would have lived forever if they had not partaken of the forbidden fruit. So it stands to reason that "something" must have happen to their bodies at the time of the transgression of God's Commandment: "And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die [There is no other logical answer: Adam and Eve would have lived forever if they had not eaten of the tree of good and evil!]." (9)
Thus there was something new, something mysterious and horrifying about the blood which now flowed through Adam's new flesh body, for he began to experience, fears, passions, lusts and appetites generated by the chemistry of the blood as certain emotional experiences were brought into action. And Adam found himself a slave to a new will or force that would hereafter dominate and control not only his life, but the lives of his descendants. Adam soon found that his new life in the flesh was in the blood, "For the life of the flesh is in the blood..." (10)
That this blood could be easily poisoned and corrupted to terminate his life even sooner if he allowed his new carnal will or nature to completely dominate his way of life. He also discovered his new nature was experienced through the five senses which cried out constantly to be gratified or exercised. This new life in the flesh became a temporary one and contained no promise that it should continue beyond the next breath of air. It was of the earth, earthy, an animalistic force pulsating deep within him began warring against his mind and causing him to do that which was evil. "For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin." (11)
And again we find in First Corinthians: "And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam [The Lord Jesus Christ] was made a quickening spirit. Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. The first man [Adam] is of the earth, earthy: the second man [Jesus Christ] is the Lord from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly." (12)
What a life of captivity and horror must have gripped his soul, no wonder the Adam in Paul cried out, "Oh wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from this body of this death?" And just as quickly the Spirit responded with the answer, "I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord."
Before we pursue this answer through Christ Jesus, let us go back to Adam's glory in the Garden of Eden for a little while. Since 1 Corinthians 15:45 reads, "And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul" Many people believe that Adam was created in his fallen state, but he was not, he fell into it because God had it planned that way.
The Twentieth Century New Testament says, "Adam became a human being," while the Smith-Goodspeed Bible says, "This is what the scriptures says, The first man Adam became a living creature." He became a mortal by falling into this condemnation, he certainly could not be redeemed or restored to something he did not have before. You see Adam knew only good when he was created, he knew nothing about sin or evil. But in order to be a true Son of God he would have to know all things and experience is the greatest teacher.
It was necessary for Adam to eat of that tree of the knowledge of good and evil so he could experience and know about death, sorrow, sin, sickness and all the negative side of life, else why should our Heavenly Father have made plans for the Lamb of God to be slain from the foundation of the earth??? So that Adam might again be restored to his glory, a much wiser and qualified person to reign as a Manifested Son of God.
In Ezekiel and Isaiah, are two passages of scripture describing Adam in the Garden of God, in his beauty, glory, power and position as the King of Tyrus. Now Tyrus means stones, precious stones as jewels and Adam was King of God's great "stone kingdom." "Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord God; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. Thou has been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou [Adam] wast created. Thou are the anointed cherub that covereth [Adam was the Spirit filled, anointed and motivated creature God formed in Genesis 2:7]; and I have set thee so: thou was upon the holy mountain [Kingdom - Nation] of God; thou has walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire [Other creatures of like manner clothed in the fire of God as Adam was]. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou [Adam] wast created, till iniquity was found in thee [Which happened when Adam believed Satan's lie instead of obeying God's Commandment]. By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence [death], and thou has sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane [A wicked person] out of the mountain [Kingdom - Nation] of God; and I will destroy thee [Adam], O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire [Fellowship with the Angelic host]. Thine [Adam's] heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness [The anointing and clothing of fire plus the Serpent's wisdom derived through Satan's lie]: I will cast thee to the ground [As a fallen dying flesh creature], I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee [In your fallen, sinful, rebellious state]. Thou has defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee. All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more." (13)
In Isaiah 14:12-16, is another beautiful portion of scripture about Adam's glory before he fell into death. Too bad these scriptures have been stigmatized by certain modernistic Bible Expositors who have brainwashed our modern Judeo-Christians into believing that these verses are speaking of Satan.
We know, for we were trained to believe that this was Satan also; I was deceived also, but let us not continue to be deceived but let's go on into greater light and revelation of God's word. "How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer" [In the original Hebrew text, the proper pronoun "Lucifer" is not found there, it was inserted by the transistors in the third century A.D. It is a Latin word that means "light bringer or shining one" which the original Hebrew word "heylel" (#1966) from the root word "helel" (14) meant. Therefore the scripture should really read, "How art thou fallen from heaven, O shining one or day star, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the 'man' that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms."
Adam was the "Shining one," because in the beginning he was the "Anointed Cherub" clothed in the fire and light of God's glory. Not Satan whom the Bible says was created a liar and a murderer from the very beginning. "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He [Satan - the devil] 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." (15)
Adam fell from this glory to a flesh and blood dying creature alienated from the fellowship and knowledge of God, bringing condemnation upon all his race as well as subjecting the whole creation to vanity. "For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature [Adam] was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Because the creature [Adam] itself shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God." (16)
Now because of all of this, is there any hope or ray of salvation and redemption for Adam? Oh yes, thanks be to the abundant grace and love of our Heavenly Father. For in Genesis 3:15, is the first promise of a Savior and Deliverer which shall loose Adam from the bondage of death and sickness to a greater glory than at the first. The Savior is prophetically spoken of as the Seed of the Woman, crushing Satan [And his race] under His feet.
How can this be explained? First of all our Heavenly Father has given us a few clues through types and shadows. Remember in Genesis Two God gives us a beautiful prototype of the Seed of the woman in Eve. "...she shall be called woman, because she was taken out of man." (17)
The seed of the woman, is a new species of mankind, created in the Spiritual Realm very much like Adam originally had. Its propagation is derived through the Spirit of God which giveth life. (18)
Therefore, the Seed of the Woman, as Eve, was taken out of man, or the original Adamic Race as is the "Church," or "Body of Christ" or "The New Creation." Now hang on to these things, in your mind, for a while as we deal with another verse of scriptures in Genesis Four. "And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew." (19)
Now we can see that Satan had won another victory over Adam by causing his son "Cain" to rise up against Adam's son "Abel" and destroy him. Therefore, Adam had no offspring to perpetuate his race and Adam was stopped cold. But as Eve said, God had mercy and appointed another seed and Seth began the flow of Adam's race again, restoring it to life. Now this is another beautiful type we want to show you shortly as it pertains to the Seed of the Woman.
There is one more verse of scripture we wish to deal with in Genesis Twenty-Two before we go to the New Testament scriptures to show how the Seed of the Woman became a reality. God is carefully showing Abraham in allegorical language that his seed would be first of all terrestrial [physical, carnal], and secondly celestial [spiritual, heavenly or seed of woman] through the language of the sand of the sea shore and the stars of heaven. Of course we don't have time nor space to explain ALL of this but let's turn quickly to Galatians. "But when the fullness of the time was come [When it was come time to manifest the Seed of the Woman's offspring], God sent forth his Son, made [born] of a woman, made [born] under the law." (20)
The details of this account are found in Luke 1:26-35. While you are turning to those verses of scripture, we would like to familiarize you with the pedigree or genealogy of Jesus. In Matthew 1:1-16 is a very careful chart drawn from Abraham to Joseph the adopted Father of Jesus.
But how would this help Jesus since Joseph was not his real Father? On the other hand we have another carefully outlined genealogy traced clear back to Adam the Son of God and is recorded in Luke 3:23-28.
But this genealogical pedigree is very unique for it is the genealogy of Mary the mother of Jesus. And it is the only record in the Bible where the woman's genealogy is stated. And why was her pedigree so important? Because she was the to bear the first offspring in the "New Creation" of the Seed of the woman and her seed had to count. She was to be the mother of the "First Begotten Son of God," "the First Born among many brethren."
In Luke 1:26-35 is the beautiful nativity scene we have learned to love so well. Even the name of Luke is a revelation, it means "light-giver." Luke gives us much light on the "New Creation" genesis. "And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, To a virgin espoused [engaged] 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 favor with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus [Yahweh, the Savior, Yeshua]. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest [Son of God]: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. The said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? (21) And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost [The Eternal Spirit of our Heavenly Father] shall come upon thee, and the power of the highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing [offspring] which shall be born of thee shall be called the son of God."
The greatest of all miracles has been performed, one which only God could have accomplished in that day and time. A divine seed had been deposited and germinated within the sealed womb of a virgin. The fetus within her womb was the beginning of a new species of mankind, partly carnal, experiencing the fleshly appetites of the natural fallen nature of Adam through the genes of its mother, while experiencing a new surge of life, health and victory through the genes of its new divine nature supplied by the Heavenly Father. "For we have not an high priest [Christ] which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin." (22)
Since Adam's seed had been passing down to their offspring from generation to generation, the contaminated cursed, death producing type of blood and seed, Jesus as the first off spring of the New Creation was to experience pure blood in which there was no death or sickness coursing in his veins. Jesus as a descendant of Adam began to feel the liberty and deliverance from the bondage of death and the grave. Therefore, we can almost hear Mary saying in her heart, "Now hath God found grace to appoint me another seed, Jesus Christ, instead of Adam whom Satan slew in the Spirit Realm, that whosoever believeth on Him might have everlasting life and conform to His glorious image and become a Son of God."
Now let us read that verse of scripture found in Luke One: "And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God." (23)
Was this a description of the conception of Jesus only in order to be a Son of God? Oh no, this was not limited to Jesus only but it is a pattern for every child of God that is born into the New Creation and Family of God. First as Mary was called and wooed by the Holy Spirit, so must we be called and drawn by the Spirit of God.
Then the Holy Ghost moves upon us in conviction and repentance from sin and the power of the Highest overshadows us and plants and germinates the seed which is the Word of God into the matrix of our heart and soul and that holy thing which shall be born in us shall be called the Son of God! As we were born into the natural, physical family of Adam, we must also be born into the family of God. For Jesus told Nicodemus.
Except he be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God. "Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water [Which is the washing of water by the word of God - 'That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the Word.' (24)] and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again." (25) Peter confirms this: "Being born again, not of corruptible seed [Adam's fallen sinful nature], but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever." (26) Before going further, we must show you that the trees in the Garden of Eden were people, not trees of wood as we have been taught all of our lives!
Spiritual rebirth is essential and a must to enter into the next New Order of the Ages, the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. That is why Jesus began a completely new dispensation and ministry to prepare people for this coming new age. In fact it couldn't come until Jesus became the Temple or body in which the God of Israel, The Lord Jesus Christ became a sacrifice for the sins of His People Israel at Calvary!
As the firstborn of a new creation, a new beginning for Adam's Race. Christ became the captain of our salvation in leading many sons into the New Race of Adam. By the appropriation of the Redeeming Grace of Jesus Christ through His Shed Blood; "For this is my blood... which is shed... for the remission of sins." (27); "...almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without the shedding of blood is no remission." (28)
We now stand justified by the righteousness of God that was in Christ Jesus. By the process of Regeneration, walking in Covenant Relationship with Christ, we become sanctified [set apart] for exercising Dominion of the earth as vicegerents under Christ. You have now been exposed to one of the most important of all the Christian Presuppositions. The awesome truth the Holy Bible is the family history of one race, i.e., The Race of Adam has profound implications [through there are many who will simply reject it, just as their kind have always rejected the truth] as we have demonstrated. And it is upon this and other sound Christian presuppositions you can build your own Christian House of Faith!
It is the intent and purpose of the presented work to assert the glorious truth that the White Christian Caucasians of America and the Western World are indeed the Israelites of the Holy Scriptures. The Israel of Scripture are indeed the ancestors of the people that now make up the Anglo-Saxon, Celtic, Germanic, Scandinavian and kindred people. If we cannot identify the True Israel of God upon the world stage and persuade them to Repent and Return to Almighty God and The Lord Jesus Christ there will be no change in the course of Western Culture and it will be doomed to destruction.
The Unconditional Promises and Covenants which God made to Abraham were to be fulfilled in the National Destiny of a people called Israel. These Promises were National and there is no scriptural authority whatever for transferring these promises and blessings to a people called the Jews. For, no matter the desires of today's Prostitute Clergy, the Jews have never done what the Israel people were to do according to the Scriptures.
The duties and responsibilities Almighty God placed upon His Israel People in the Bible have been and are being fulfilled in only one people upon the face of this earth and that people are the nations of the White Christian Western World, the Family of Nations that are descended from Abraham, Isaac, Jacob-Israel and Joseph.
Remember when God delivered his people Israel who were 2 � to 3 million strong, not to mention the mixed multitude, brought them through the Red Sea, across the burning desert unto the foot of Mount Sinai and he never lost one of them. How did he do such a fabulous thing? Exodus 19:4 gives us the answer: "Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself."
Almighty God did it though his Holy Spirit and His Word which He spoke through His servant Moses. Now, if God could move three million of His people from Egypt to Sinai, I'm sure he can move eight to ten million of his people from the area of the Caucasian Mountains to a new location which he had ordained for them in so many verses of Scriptures: (29) and this is only a partial listing. We must now, for your benefit, establish a reason why she must fly into the wilderness.
It seems National Israel could not stay true to her husband God Almighty after their marriage at Sinai. God was very good to her and showed her every consideration, in spite of her adulterous nature and conduct. After several hundred years when it became clear that National Israel and God's relationship as a marriage could no longer continue because of her rebellious nature and unfaithfulness, God spoke through his prophet Nathan, and said: "Moreover I will appoint a [new] place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them anymore, as before time." (30)
God then made preparations for the divorce and began proceedings by dividing the House of Israel into two distinct segments, the Ten Northern Tribes of Israel and the Kingdom of Judah. This action did not cause her to repent nor change her ways but instead act more wickedly and rebellious. Therefore God was forced to take strong measures against Israel [the Ten Tribes] and He said unto her: "...if you will not for all of this hearken unto me, but will walk contrary unto me, then I will walk contrary unto you also in fury; and I will chastise you seven times for your sins." (31)
As we study the Scriptures we learn that a "time" is 360 years as I'm sure you are familiar with the "SEVEN TIMES" which is 7 x 360 years or 2520 years Israel was to be chastised or punished for her rebellious and adulterous nature. Therefore God began evacuation procedures against her by sending Shalmaneser King of Assyria upon her. "In the ninth year of Hoshea [Israel's last King], the King of Assyria took Samaria [Capitol of Ten Tribed Kingdom] and carried Israel away into Assyria, and placed them in Halah and in Habor by the river Gozan, in the cities of the Medes [Between the Black and Caspian Sea in the Caucasian Mountain area]." (32)
Now let's go to Revelation twelve. "And to the woman [National Israel] were given two wings [God's Word and Spirit] of a great eagle [God], that she [Israel] might fly [immigrate] into the wilderness [Isles of the sea and Western Europe], into her place (33) where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent." (34)
God had completed the first lap of Israel's trek into "Her Place" by having the Assyrians carry her bodily into the Caucasian Mountain area where she was to retain this name Caucasian to describe her [Race's] origin. Next God programmed Israel by His Spirit to begin their laborious journey across Europe to their appointed place which was to take a "Time," "Times" and A "Half Time" or 3 � time of 1260 years to accomplish.
Since Israel went into the Assyrian captivity between the years 745 to 721 B.C., 3 � times or 1260 years added to this date would bring us to 515 A.D. And sure enough from the third to fifth century A.D. we begin to see Israel make their appearance into the British Isles of the sea and Western Europe in the migrations of the Galls, Celts, Goths, Picts, Angli, Vikings, Saxons, Cymri, Normans and the Danai, etc. "And the woman [Israel] fled into the wilderness [Isles of the sea and Western Europe] where she hath a place prepared of God (35) that they should feed her there [in the Isles of the sea and Western Europe] a thousand two hundred and threescore days." (36) This verse seems to be a repetition of the previous verse quoted but it isn't. The one thousand two hundred and threescore days is equal to another 3 � times or 1260, for a day is symbolic of one year (37). By adding the two periods of 3 � times together, we have the seven times or 2520 years Israel was to be chastised (38) of God for their sins and rebellion. "And she [Israel] being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered." (39)
You mean that Israel was pregnant? How could that be? And furthermore what kind of an offspring could she bring forth. Well, according to God's Law everything begets after it's own kind. Since National Israel is a nation, she would naturally have to bring forth a nation. When was she impregnated anyhow. According to Genesis 35:10-11 we find that Israel was impregnated by the Word of God long before He had divorced her when He made certain promises to Jacob. "And God said unto him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee... kings shall come of thy loins."
When was she to bear this first born child? In humans this takes nine months but in Israel's case it was to take seven times. When she shall have completed her seven times chastisement period, she will have also completed her gestation period. As a woman pains to be delivered when her nine months are up even so Israel was paining desperately to be delivered also as we shall see a little later on. She was certainly getting big as most pregnant persons do.
Because she was complaining in Isaiah 49:19-20 about her place as being "too narrow" and; "The place is too straight for me: give place to me that I may dwell." Israel was becoming crowded in the Isles of the sea and Western Europe.
It was time now to reveal to Israel and the earth this vast new world and continent God had kept reserved to bring forth his first born nation under God. After God permitted the discovery of America it didn't take long for the new child's form to be manifested on the east coast of this new world. There was a striking resemblance of this child to its mother in that it's thirteen tribes and both of their constitutions and format were patterned after The Word of God!
