In A Beginning

Number 5

God’s plan is to create the Family of God.

Ephesians 3:14-15

14″For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,”

15 “Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,”

II Corinthians 6:18, “ And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.”

God, through the one who became Jesus Christ, created the angels and then the earth.

Job 38:4-7

4 “Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.”

5 “Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?”

6 “Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;”

7 “When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?”

The Lord placed Lucifer over the angels and made him god of this world.

II Corinthians 4:4, “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”

Lucifer rebelled against the Lord becoming Satan, taking many of the angels with him.

This rebellion destroyed the heaven and the earth. We then have the six day creation week in which the Lord reconstructs the heaven and the earth.

Psalms 104:30, “ Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth.”

Because of his rebellion against God, Lucifer, now Satan, has to be replaced as god of this world.

The Lord sends Adam to replace Satan. Adam, without God’s Holy Spirit, is overcome by Satan.

The Lord later sends Jesus, the last Adam, to replace Satan as God of this world.

Adam is placed in the garden of Eden and the Lord creates Eve as a help meet for him.

Adam and Eve could eat freely of the Tree of Life but Adam was commanded not to eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

Satan deceives Eve. Adam is not deceived but he follows his wife even though he is her leader.

Eve has twin boys: Cain of the wicked one and righteous Abel.

1 John 3:12: “Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous.”

Matthew 23:35: “That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.”

Cain is the first born and the birthright belongs to him. Cain is of the wicked one and the Lord could not let Jesus Christ be born through the line of Cain.

If Cain had not killed Abel, the birthright would have had to change from Cain to Abel.

The Sons of God (fallen angels) took daughters of men for their wives. Many of their children were giants and mighty men. Through them the earth was filled with violence and the Lord destroyed them with the earth.

Genesis 6:2, 4, 12, 13

2 “That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.”

4 “There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.”

12 “And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.”

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

Noah was perfect in his generations.

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

Noah, his wife, his three sons, and their wives survive the flood. The Lord starts over with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

Isaac has twin sons: Esau and Jacob.

Cain and Abel are the forerunners of Esau and Jacob.

Esau was the firstborn and he was a fornicator and profane person.

The birthright had to change from Esau to Jacob.

Hebrews 12:16-17

16 “Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.”

17 “For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.”
