There appears to be an all seeing eye watching you, on the right side is the seal of the United States government. The point is this, If I take what Bro. William Branham said, and this is not to discredit anything, I say this in respect of the Branham family, relatives, and followers. If you hear what I am saying, I am not ignorant of what the histories prove. I did not study this to disprove Bro. William Branham and what he said about the dollar bill. But when in 1988, I read in the National Geographic magazine that they had found the burial boat that carried the body of the pharaoh or king, whatever they were called in that era, down to be buried there, then they buried the boat, I knew there had to be something more to know than what I knew up until then. It let me know for sure, that there is a lot about this pyramid that has been written from a mythological, traditional viewpoint, that is void of facts. I refuse to let my mind indulge in and be caught up in that. As I said earlier, There is no spirituality in what I am talking about, but I do not want anyone to judge me, that I cannot be a follower of Bro. William Branham‘s teachings, because I do not take every word he spoke as fact and try to say everything just like he said it. It is a fact, that in the early origin of our country, our founding fathers, many of them were of the order of the Masons. How many have heard of the Masonic Order? The Masonic Order did not originate in the Americas. It originated in England and France. From the Middle Ages, starting in 1300, 1400, 1500, and 1600, which this history refers to as the Renaissance, now we will say they have done away with all the stupidity of not letting the pyramids be explored. Europeans in hordes went there to visit, and to study. Out of going there to study this order of the Masons, which strictly is European, basically English and French, as they study this monster, they adopted the thought that they would use this as a symbol of their order. Because as they have studied this, to them they could see the Bible characterized in all the numerical figures and what it stood for. There is a place in this history that tells about it, but why is it on our dollar bill, if it came out of Europe? George Washington and many of our early fathers were Masons. I want to say this to anyone in other lands who might think, Well they were pagans. No they were not pagans. They were Christian men, yet they belonged to an order of men called Masons. In older times the Masons were to Protestantism what the Knights of Columbus are to Catholicism today. Now how many know what I am talking about. I will say again, the Masons were a body of men of the Protestant world who organized themselves, and bound themselves together, to set up a framework of fellowship as guardians to the Protestant cause, to counteract the cause of the Knights of Columbus in the Catholic Church. Since these Masons, these men founding this new nation, are going to establish a government, here is what the writer says:
“According to Manly P. Hall, an expert on Masonic teachings, not only were many of the founders of the U.S. government Masons, but they received aide from a secret and August body existing in Europe, which helped them to establish the United States for a peculiar and particular purpose known only to the initiated few. The Great Seal, says Hall, was the signature of this exalted body and the unfinished pyramid on its reverse side is a trestle board setting forth symbolically the task to the accomplishment of which the U.S. government was dedicated from the day of its inception. The eagle was apparently intended to represent a phoenix or symbol of the immortality of the human soul. Great currency has been given to the pyramid and phoenix symbols by placing them upon a one dollar bill.”
It is irrelevant to the fact that the pyramid had never been completed, because the time the Masons are going there, it is after the destruction has set in, the destruction that was brought on by the Arabs in the 8th century. I am not going to read any more because I do not want this subject to be boring. As I look at this and see our time, every time you turn around, from government, state, federal, and local, they want more money, better education. To me, this goes to show when any nation, any society, no matter what they have reached or attained to in all their learning, if they put God aside and He no longer is recognized, that society is headed for doom. Whatever their natural achievements are, whether it is how big their buildings are, how high they reach into the sky, what kind of space platform they have built, or we found rocks on the moon, water on Mars, you name it: What good is all that if we only wind up in hell? I don’t want to wind up there. That is why I cannot help but believe, that is a memorial to an ancient society, whether we want to equate them with the Egyptians after the flood, or the society that lived in that same area before the flood. Anyhow God brought it to an end. There has not been a geometrician or mathematician since then, that has been able to pass it up. Think about the space platform, The other day I watched on the News, twenty one rich celebrities, it was their request when they die, that they be cremated and their ashes be put in a rocket. Then they launched that rocket with twenty one canisters of ashes of these atheists. How many millions it cost to launch that rocket, I do not know. The rocket will traverse the earth for ten years. After that it will lose momentum and re-enter earth’s atmosphere. As it re-enters earth’s atmosphere it will burn up and the ashes will be scattered somewhere. You know, the Bible tells me that at the great white throne judgment, the last resurrection, that the sea give up the dead, hell gives up the dead, but there is nothing said about space giving up the dead. Saints, we are living in a world that is teetering on the edge of reality and many are going the wrong way. It is wonderful to learn to write your name, learn how to read about God, it is wonderful to learn to use figures and be able to buy and sell. When you really think about it, in the ancient world of that hour, it was necessary that numbers, measurements, distance and all of that be learned. It was important. However one does reach a point where they can overdo that. I believe we can say they reached the peak, and that is the symbol of it. It has driven people crazy. Now we have the computer and high tech learning. We have made instruments that can do what the human brain is supposed to do, but when that thing breaks down, it takes a smart brain to come along and repair it. While it is functioning right, it can almost make a fool out of you. To me, it just shows where intellectualism has come to. I have to believe we are at the threshold of a modern society being wiped off the face of this planet. The only people that are going to survive are people that are still common enough, and earth wise enough that they realize, after you learn all that, there is still no peace except in God. There is no security in that. The only security we have is to know God. That is why I had to say, This man Moses, that was called out of Egypt at a time when he was learned, schooled, because he had been brought up in Pharaoh’s household, why would he not have known all about the Pyramids? Political leadership always wants to pass on to their sons and daughters all the knowledge possible. It is the same way in America. Why not look upon Moses as a learned man? Acts 7 said he was learned in all the ways of the Egyptians. He was mighty in word and in deeds. He was a smart man. Yet Moses reached an hour, as it says in Hebrews, when he counted the cost and chose to follow the leadership of the Spirit of God. I realize you people that are still in school have to sit there while those atheist try to cram a lot of junk down your throat, but my advise is, Keep your own faith in God alive and well and just let them say whatever they choose to, because you are not going to change them, no matter how much you argue with them. You know in your heart, that there is a God in heaven that will one day judge all of that atheistic nonsense. The only people that are going to come out of this miserable state, are people that have an understanding of their God. Therefore I want to deal with this enough to give sufficient proof to those who are teachable, and then let the rest believe whatever they choose to. I am not trying to be smart, just factual, and I want to get back to what we were looking at, how we have so many varieties of each species living today.
MANKIND WORKING WITH EVOLUTION
Just in case there would be someone present that likes to criticize, we are not here just to talk about dogs and horses, but this will help you see the reality of what we have about us every day we live, how it got to be this way. We are using this chart because we are definitely dealing with a subject that is very controversial, “The Testing and Fall of Satan,” in an effort to show the religious world that there was truly a prehistoric time prior to Genesis 1:2. We are not going to be like the pope of Rome, that has just stated that it is very possible Adam and Eve were existing in some lower form, then when God spoke breath into them and they became a living soul, that is when He spoke the soul into them. No saints, you do not have to compromise to please the world, when you know the truth. He said that because he does not have a clue from the scriptures, what really did take place when God made man in His own image. I realize there are a lot of educated people today that will say, You people talk like you know it all. No, we do not claim to know everything, but we do know some things, and the day will come when you may wish you had tried to find out some of what we know, instead of just finding fault with us all the time. We are not just playing around: We are trying to show some people how science actually proves the reality of a Creator, rather than disproving it. I want to use this chart up here behind me to illustrate what you need to understand. Under each picture, there are readings describing the different types of dogs. It tells you what this type of dog and that type of dog was bred to be. Some are called the working breeds. These are of old, the hunters. They come from various nations. Then these are known as the toy breeds. These are the kinds you see sitting in the back window of a car, running from side to side as the car moves along. Just imagine this, Suppose this was back over in the prehistoric hour and you were to find the carcase of one of them. You might think, What in the world would that creature be. My point is this, All of these came from the pair of dogs that were in our garden of Eden. Young people, that is evolution according to the plan of the Creator. In the modern, 20th century, that is scientific evolution, because the point is, Man, knowing the laws of the genes that carry the chromosomes and those things that carry the hereditary record of the species, studies them, examining the various breeds. This tells how old, some of these particular breeds are. They go back to a time before the birth of Christ. As we look at this, it shows the many varieties that have come into existence in the last two or three hundred years. Some of these breeds are famous in other areas of the world. They have just found their way into our part of the world. As people travel and see these particular types of dogs, they want one for a pet. Some of these breeds were bred to be dogs for fighting. We are not so much interested in them. That goes to show you, Satan is behind some of these things also. It just depends on what they were initially bred and designed for. Pit bull dogs have been as worthless as anything can be. Yet some people say, Oh but they are so nice. Study the nature of that person who says that: You will find that they like to see them tear up something. Listen carefully to me. In parts of the world when Sunday comes, there will be more people gathered at dog fights than at the house of worship. In the Spanish world they will come together and watch bull fights, a man fighting a bull. Do you think you are going to see anything like that in the Millennium? If you like that stuff you better get your fill of it now, because when you get into the Millennium, there will be no bull fights, dog fights, or any other thing like that. That was not in God’s original plan. The devil wanted to take something that God had created and pervert it for his own enjoyment. It is very sad, that so many people will allow their nature to feed on something like that. This is to show you, that from two dogs in our garden of Eden, this many colors, sizes and breeds have come. There is no way they could have come from what was way back in Lucifer’s beginning. Those who breed these dogs have studied this sort of thing, so they know exactly what type of dog to breed with another type to get that genetic offspring to look like what they want. This is what was meant when Adam was told, Subdue the earth, take dominion over every living thing, the cattle of the field, the fowl of the air, and everything that swims in the sea and so forth. It is true, there are a lot of species in the world at large that have not been domesticated to the point we see here in these dogs. I am just using dogs to illustrate my point: If we had a chart of the various cats in the world today, you would get the same type of picture. It shows evolution of the species. Not one scientist or evolutionist can dare say, I created that dog, I created that cat. You did not. You just happened to know a law that works in the genetic structure of reproduction, and you worked with that, but you did not create. Just as I read about the horse, every once in a while down through time, God the Creator allows a female horse that has been bred to a certain type of male horse, to all of a sudden bear an offspring that does not even look or act like its mother or daddy. When you come to horses that is especially true. Some of them may have the same color, but be different in size. They can be the same size, but different in their gaits. Man, through time, has bred horses to obtain certain objectives. Some like the trotting horses, some like the galloping, or the cantering horse. Then there are other horses, like it shows in this book, that are of many breeds, from the draft horse that would weigh a ton, such as the Clydesdales, the Belgians, Suffolk Punch, the Percheron, and all of these that were bred back in the Middle Ages to carry the knights and their armor. Imagine a horse weighing a ton with about 150 or 200 pounds of armor on his head and chest, with a rider on him wearing so many pounds of armor himself. Then just watch that thing charge another man on a similar horse. Something has to move. They had two types of horses. One was the light horse for the sword calvary. Then there was the heavy horse, for the one with a long pole. It required a big horse behind that thing. In here, it tells all of that. This one is a horse magazine I subscribe to. In it, there are some pictures of various one’s. It tells about the Tennessee Walker. He comes from the Standard bred, the Arabian and the Morgan horse. These horses have a certain gait. In Tennessee, Virginia, southern Kentucky and northern Georgia, land owners used those horses riding them on the large plantations. They were bred mostly for that purpose because of their soft, easy gait. Those horses, back in the years when their breed was established, color wise they were usually black, but some were dapple gray, and some could be sorrel with stocking feet. Just in the past few years within the other elements of the riding horse, the Pinto, the black and white, the red sorrel and spotted horse, he has become such an attractive horse, down in that part of the country they have bred into the pinto bloodline. It takes a smart breeder to know what he is doing, what horse to use, but now they are getting the spotted horse bred into the Tennessee Walker line. It shows pictures of some of them. Here is a Tennessee Walker. See how black he is. Here are pictures that show a Tennessee Walker with the Pinto bloodline in him. They want the gait, the ride, but they want the spotted color. Where did this spotted horse come from? He came from the regions of North Africa, Morocco. He was brought over by the Spaniards. I am saying these things to show you that evolution can be directed by man, or once in awhile God can drop a gene for something different. If God drops the gene, it is a mutant. He is the author of that. On the other hand, if it is done by man studying the breeding techniques, it is called mutating. In other words, this is what man has done. However it is still evolution, whether it is God doing it, or man directing it. Also down in that part of the country, they have something else that further explains evolution. When I was a kid I never saw a spotted mule. Most were black or mouse colored, but now they are breeding this pinto with black and white spots into the mule. Besides that, they are crossing the Walking horse gait into the mule. In these magazines, once in awhile they will show a picture of a mule that is black and white spotted, with that Walking horse gait. My point is, This is evolution in the 20th century, and we ought to understand it. All of this is for good, because if man was not interested in this kind of thing, you would only see two or three breeds and that would be all of it. With that in mind, let us look at something else. If carnal mankind of the world today gives himself to the spirit of Satan in some of these terrible games such as rooster fighting, bull fighting, dog fighting and all that type of evil sport, do not think for one moment that this spirit just originated in our era of time? No. It was all designed by Satan, back in his prehistoric time, when he and other angels were in charge of an animal kingdom. When those other angels finally cast their lot with Lucifer to partake of this sort of thing, it brought about their fall. What I am saying is, Lucifer and one third of the other angels experimented with such techniques in the prehistoric era. That period no doubt lasted long enough, once it got to the perverted stage, that every angel God had created was tested by it. They either made their choice for good or bad; and the bad was many of these evil things you see going on today. They were originated and acted out by the devil and the angels that fell with him, in an era before Adam’s time. There was evolution in the prehistoric era and I want you to be able to see evolution in our era of time. I see evolution. Is this something designed by man? No. God designed it. No doubt, when we get into the Millennium, where there is an animal kingdom of peace, we will probably see domesticated animals that are wild right now. When it says a child shall lead them, and a cow and bear shall feed together, the lion shall eat straw like the bull ox, there is no doubt in my mind that when the Millennium comes, there will be animals domesticated. Only the Lord knows the types that can be domesticated out of the wild creatures. Whatever suits God’s purpose, is how it will be.
ANGELS THAT KEPT NOT THEIR FIRST ESTATE
I want to go on with the serpent we mentioned earlier: what type of creature he was, and what he did that caused God to strip off his arms and legs and send him crawling on his belly. I want to assure you at this time, that the first book of the Bible, the book of Genesis, is really the history of the genes of God’s Creation. God created the first pair, and all life that is brought forth on this planet afterwards is propagated because each species carry a law of heredity in their genes, so that kind will produce its kind. That is why the flow of genes passes from one creature to the next. If it is man, then man will beget man. A horse will beget a horse. God designed it that way. As for Lucifer and the other angels that sinned, you just have to read between the lines in scriptures like Isaiah 14, and Ezekiel 28, and allow the Spirit of God to lead your thoughts beyond that. I am convinced, that before the prehistoric era came to a close, every angelic being that had went contrary to the plan of God and helped desecrate the creation, had done it through perverting God’s true purpose for the animal kingdom they ruled over. There is no doubt in my mind, that a lot of evil was designed in Lucifer’s mind concerning that animal kingdom, and those angels that fell with him, fell because they helped carry out his perverted plan. It says in 2nd Peter, as well as the epistle of Jude, that those angels sinned. Where did they sin? They sinned back there, in an era before the world was found in a void state in Genesis 1:2. “And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” It was like that because God judged their deeds and wiped all life from the planet. He froze the planet back then, and in Genesis 1:2, when the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters, He began a slow process of restoring the planet back to an acceptable state for life to again exist on it. 2nd Peter 2:4, says “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,” and so forth, and Jude 6, says, “And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, He hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day,” so we have to realize they were already fallen angels when God began His new creation in Genesis. By various scriptures, we learn that they departed from their original, created position of authority, and from their righteous state, because they were perfect until iniquity was found in them. The word iniquity, means lawlessness, disobedience, exercising their own will to go against divine authority. The choice for them was what they would do with all this power and authority that had been given to them. Once they did choose to go against the Creator’s plan for them, they no doubt helped design every evil type of thing that could be imagined. I believe they did a lot of things with the animals, within that era of time, that it would be almost impossible for us to imagine right now. The scriptures say many are chained down, meaning they are not loose right now. There were many fallen angels, that are now Satan’s helpers in his evil schemes, but some of them did things that were so bad in the eyes of their Creator, that He had them chained down, bound up and forbidden to move about, and they are going to stay there until the day of judgment, a time when God will bring all things into accountability. The Bible says saints will judge the world, and that we will judge angels also. With this in mind, I am going to turn to the 6th chapter, but before I do I want to bring certain points up to that hour. In the religious world we live in today, especially the denominational world, if they ever hear me say some of these things they will say, That is one of the most damnable doctrines I have ever heard in my life. Who in the world wants to listen to that? Well if one was to watch this video or hear it on tape, I want to express this to you, I am going to ask a question later in this message. If you want to write me, then write me, but give me an answer you can quote from the Bible. I said the other night, that the serpent, in all probability was a creature that looked much like this character on our chart that the evolutionist refer to as the modern man. The evolutionists theory is, that this creature came into existence about ninety thousand years before the end. Well where did he come from? If God is the Creator, this one somewhere, as he evolved to a certain point in time, then species like him begat this one. Somewhere he was born, and when he was born he was a little more unusual than his parents, because time had come to that hour. Just like I talked about the Morgan horse: The biography of him shows that he was a mutant horse. In other words, when he came forth in birth, he was not like daddy or mother. That goes to show that God dropped the gene. Once that gene was dropped, he established himself as a progenitor of a breed of horses that every one he fathered into the world was just like him. I have to say, The Creator wanted that breed to come out. If you take that to the human species, God did not create man with the idea that all of them were to be farmers. Some young men have been born of farming parents, and they despised growing up on a farm. That is just not their interest. On the other hand, there have been boys born of city parents that do not like city life. They have an inner desire that is altogether different than their parents. I have to say, as I defend education in the true sense of the word, If our education system was run with God in mind, the essential thing would be, give them four years of basics to start the child out, but then see what that child’s capabilities are, and where his or her interest is. If every child going to school knew they faced four years of basics as a necessity, but after that there would be things offered that would better suit their interest, I believe the world would be in a lot better shape today. It is through the offering of these choices that teachers and instructors could begin to figure out what the interest in that young person’s life really is. You simply cannot make violin players out of all of them, so why subject them to that atmosphere? Let them avoid those useless subjects. Down on Vincennes Street at the old high school, there used to be a restaurant across from it, where we would eat once in awhile. If you were there when school let out, it was ridiculous to see so many students carrying horns, flutes, violins, cases of every description. Common sense would tell you, when they get out of that school they are never going to pick up a violin again, so why go through all of that? They are required to take so many lessons whether they like it or not, so as a detour many of them say, I will take music. Musicians are born, not produced by a music school. That might not set well with some people, but it is true. Others can go and learn all about notes, and that has a practical acceptance, but if inside the person there is not something they want to express through music, your schools will never make musicians out of them. For example, a hog grunts, but try to teach a horse to grunt and see how far you get with it. It is just not in a horse to grunt. Stick around for a while, and we will see how young children are taught in the Millennium. Satan will not be able to influence anyone over there until after the thousand years are ended.
WHAT ABOUT THE SERPENT? WHAT DID HE REALLY DO?
I want all of you to listen carefully to what I am going to say. This “man” that stood there in our garden of Eden, Adam called him serpent, and the Bible says he was the most subtil, or the wisest of all the animals. When he came to Eve in Genesis 3, and spoke like he did, finally she consented to his enticing offer and the rest is history. That creature knew all about sex. He was of the natural world, the animal kingdom. He was the highest educated of them all, and he did not go to school to learn what he knew. He did not come into the garden carrying a degree. He was the highest in intelligence of all the creatures that had evolved through the time before this whole thing was catastrophically judged and the Ice Age set in. Remember though, behind his deeds was Lucifer the devil, inspiring him. I know our archaeologists and scientists of today think we are some kind of strange people, that would believe Eve had a sex encounter with the serpent, and that the serpent was the father of Cain, but that is exactly what we believe and we can find plenty of evidence in the scriptures to back it up. If there is a God, and this Bible is the word of God, He has been in control of everything that has ever taken place on this planet. Only that which He has allowed, could transpire; and the testing of His angelic helpers was part of it. Some of them failed the test, but nothing can stop the final outcome the Creator determined to bring about when He thought it all through before He ever started to create anything. He is going to take us to a new world, a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness, regardless of all the hindrances along the way. There will be nothing over there, that has not been right here at one time and been tested. If God is going to have a people over there that He has redeemed, and there is going to be an animal kingdom over there, we have got to accept the fact that He planned the whole thing before time began. He already knows who and what will be there. I will say also, If He is concerned about what happens on this planet in our era of time, He was just as concerned in the prehistoric era when Lucifer enticed His angelic helpers and His creatures to go contrary to His plan. That serpent God gave Adam to be his servant had been a part of that prehistoric animal kingdom that God suddenly froze up. Therefore when God resurrected him over in Adam’s Garden of Eden, he had the intellect to be the type of creature that could yield himself to Satan. When Satan began to impress him to talk to Eve like he did, his (Satan’s) sole purpose was absolutely to get Eve to partake of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. I must say again, That tree did not grow out of the ground: It pertained to a law God had set forth in the midst of the garden. The garden of course, was a little bit of heaven placed over a little spot of the earth. It was a place where the spirit world and the natural world were in harmony together. Having said that, I want to express emphatically that the two trees pertained to life and death. To partake of the tree of life would have been to have sexual relations just for the purpose of fulfilling the Creators command to “Be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth.” On the other hand, to partake of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, was to learn that the sex act could be for pleasure also, as well as for bringing forth offspring, and to partake of the act for that reason. Either way, the earth would be filled again: One way, would have been according to God’s perfect will and would have produced children with eternal life abiding in them. The other way, the way it went after the serpent seduced Eve, and Eve conveyed her newly attained knowledge to her husband and he also partook of that fruit, it brought forth children with a death sentence hanging over them. In other words, The two trees in the midst of the garden were two basic laws by which man and woman were going to reproduce themselves in the world as they have been commissioned to. I realize there are educated critics in the religious world that will say such an idea is Satanic, that it is of the devil. Well if you will continue listening to me, after a while I am going to ask a question; and then we will see what you want to communicate to me. My point is, Adam and Eve had to be faced with some kind of choice. If Lucifer and those in his hour of rulership were faced with some kind of choice, then Adam and Eve which were given dominion over a kingdom to have authority on the planet as God-like creatures, would also have to face some kind of choice; but before the right thing could ever be done, which would have been Adam and Eve coming together and making love strictly for the purpose of her conceiving seed and bearing a child which would have had eternal life, the devil devised a plan to forerun that, a plan that caused Eve’s children to be born with imputed death in them. Reproduction by the law of the tree of life would have brought forth children just like Jesus was, totally sinless and perfect and there never would have been any need for a Savior, but what did God tell Adam? (Genesis 2:16-17) “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.” That terminology did not mean MAYBE you will die, it meant YOU WILL DIE. If not for their sin, every woman from that day until now could have given birth to the same kind of baby the virgin Mary gave birth to in that Bethlehem cave, 2000 years ago. Mary’s baby did not have that fallen nature in Him, simply because she conceived by a supernatural conception by the power of the Spirit of God. God created a cell of life in the womb of Mary that bypassed all of man’s genetic attributes; therefore Jesus was free from that death sentence that God imputed to Adam and every child that would be born by the seed of mankind. HE was truly the SON of GOD. His Father was, and is still a sovereign SPIRIT. God created in that womb the very beginning of life itself. The baby that Mary bore that night, was the type of child every woman should have given birth to, if Eve would have just said to the serpent, Get away from me, or I will tell Adam what you are trying to get me to do. Keep in mind, The disobedience occurred inside the garden. Adam was led to partake of the same thing while they were still inside the garden. Then when God came on the scene in the cool of the day to have fellowship with his creatures, His children, they were hiding. They already realized what they had done. They realized they were both naked, and even tried to cover with fig leaves the naked parts they had sinned with. I realize doctors of divinity naturally say, That is ridiculous, even Satanic, for anyone to talk like that, but I say to them, Just hold your peace and keep listening. I know it sounds ridiculous to those who have gone through life believing that Eve ate a beautiful apple from a natural fruit tree the Creator did not want them to eat from, but anyone who has the ability to think for himself, ought to be able to read that 16th verse of chapter 2, and realize Eve’s sin could not possibly have been that, because God had said, “Of EVERY TREE of the garden thou mayest freely eat.” When He said, EVERY TREE, He meant, every tree. If you will just pay attention, and read verse 9 with the right attitude, you will see clearly, that the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil did not grow out of the ground. “And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; (Every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food grew from the ground. That is a fact, but in the midst of all of that, God instituted two laws that pertained to the family tree, if you please. It is just that simple.) the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.” Yes, to you it sounds fantastic, but it is the most basic, sensible answer to it what really happened to cause man’s fall, that there ever has been. God drove them out of the garden. That is what it says, but I want to assure you, when God drove them out of the garden, He did not drive them out of a geographical spot of the earth. Eden is from the Nile to the Euphrates, from the Havilah, (which is now an old dried up river bed, but it was not so before the flood.) northward to where the Mediterranean Sea is: That was the garden of Eden. Historically, that has been the Fertile Crescent where civilization started. God did not drive Adam and Eve out of the place, which was to be the beginning of civilization. What He did drive them out of, was the spiritual environment I describe as a little bit of heaven down here on earth. When He positioned Cherubims with flaming swords at the east of the garden of Eden to guard the way to the tree of life, that is when we can say God closed the door to the spirit world for mortal man. Man, from that day until this, has never been able to enter back into the spirit world at his own will. Only here and there, God would let man have a vision of what the spirit world, in a little way, is like. This has happened all down through time. This is exactly why the scientific world cannot see it, they cannot explore it with instruments. After they were out of the garden, then it says Adam knew Eve and she bore a son. She said, I have gotten a man from the Lord. Notice though, we are saying this first child was what she had conceived from this creature right here, (the serpent) because he was the first creature that had a relationship with Eve. Then it says she bore Abel. That tells me she literally gave birth to what would be called twins. She gave birth to two offspring, but only one of them was a son of Adam. When you get into the New Testament, you cannot show me one mention anywhere in the New Testament records where Cain was ever referred to as a son of Adam. He was not. He is not mentioned in the genealogical lineup from Adam. With this in mind, we can say that because the devil knew the law of genes, and knew what he could do with them, he thought he had a master plan. In the prehistoric era their test did not originate in the beginning. It came about on over here in the last number of thousands of years of that time. When things had evolved to a state of acceptance in the eyes of the Creator, then is when God allowed the devil to make his choice wherein he went contrary to what he had been commissioned to do. Listen, if things had not already evolved to the point wherein God’s purpose had been accomplished, concerning the different creatures that were existing then, and had not got to that point, God’s purpose would have been defeated. I hope you understand what I mean. This is why, if God would have allowed death to strike Adam and Eve the minute they had done this terrible thing, how would the commission given them ever been fulfilled? God would have had to design something else to fulfill what He commanded them to do, replenish the earth. Therefore with this in mind we can see that when the serpent gave himself, his emotions to the devil’s plan to plant this gene seed in Eve, this gave the devil a tool to work with, to get at God. To you educated doctors of divinity that always say, That is ridiculous, I say , No, it is not ridiculous. I am looking at this thing six thousand years later, in an hour when it took this kind of long haired professors, looking down their noses through thick rimmed glasses at our young students, to determined that they should start teaching sex in our schools. After thirty five years, what have they done? Out of the pit of hell, has come teachers that have taken young daughters and sons of Christian families and raped their conscience in a public classroom, totally embarrassing them and their families. They call it being sexually active. Out of wedlock children are born by the thousands as a result of this foolishness. That is exactly why we now have abortion clinics. Abortion clinics are none other than places where medical doctors take the life of a conceived child that has been brought about because two people went out to have pleasure, a good time, and they got caught, but they don’t want to assume the responsibility for what they have done. That is what the devil has been after all along. He laughs at God and all who believe in God. Yet modern day people just ride right along with the whole thing as though everything is as it should be. I heard on the News, that someone set off a bomb at one of the abortion clinics in Atlanta Georgia. Naturally I do not endorse that kind of thing, but the point is, there are a lot of people that are carnally irked at all of this, and I just have to say, Satan will fight Satan at times. That is the way I look at it. God is not fighting Satan that way. God has His own way of dealing with man’s degradation.
CAIN MURDERS ABEL
We are seeing the first human family outside the garden of Eden. The devil has planted a seed by the cooperation of the serpent. As he grew up with his brother Abel, their nature’s were totally different. (We are in the 4th chapter of Genesis.) When both sons began to get to an age of maturity, where each one mentally and spiritually begins to relate and to draw from their spiritual heritage, or the spiritual attribute that they would have drawn by hereditary law through birth, we find that Abel sees there needs to be a bloody sacrifice for sins. He sees also that he is a sinner. Cain also sees that he is a sinner, but he has no revelation that there has to be a blood sacrifice. I do not want to dwell on this, but you can see existing in the two sons, a vast difference. One has an ability to see and understand what God wants him to do. The other has the natural, carnal aspect of the thing, but without any revelation. He knows he needs to worship God, and he wants to bring a sacrifice, therefore his father being the serpent, and the serpent knowing all about melons, pumpkins, squash, cantaloupe, and all such stuff, he fell heir to that knowledge, so he brought God an offering prepared by his own hands. It was in his makeup to see things like that. I can see him bringing his melons and such, and figuring God is going to gladly accept it, and let me say to the educated of the world, God never did accept plant life as a sacrifice for sins. When Adam and Eve wanted to hide their loins because of their nakedness, why did they not go to the tree of life and pluck leaves, if the tree of life was a natural tree, like you think it is? The answer is very simple: the tree of life was not a tree of plant life, no more than the tree of knowledge was a plant life tree. Those two trees are basic laws, symbols of something. All the other natural trees grew out of the ground, so they went to the fig tree for their covering. With this in mind we can see when they came out of their hiding and God saw their condition, what He said to them. Hast thou eaten of the tree of knowledge which I told thee not to eat of? Then they began to lay the blame on such and such. This goes to show the most logical thing they could do would be go to the tree that would have something they could cover up with, and that was a plant life tree. They saw the tree that had the most convenient means to cover their nakedness. The fact that they covered their nakedness with plant life speaks loudly to me, and you doctors of divinity still try to say that they ate fruit off of a plant life tree. Well if they ate fruit off of a natural tree they ate it with their mouth, so why did they not cover their mouth, instead of their loin parts? Why did God put a curse on her reproduction organs instead of just giving her rotten teeth or a toothache, if your version of this thing is right? Common sense should tell you they covered the parts of their body that they sinned with. After confronting them, God then kills a lamb and covers them with sheepskin. There had to be a life taken, to provide them a covering God would accept. The rest of the 4th chapter gives you the genealogy of Cain. It came to pass that Cain left the presence of God. Cain went out from the presence of the Lord. In other words he has already killed his brother, he has broken fellowship with the God that he knows a little something about, and now he knows he is plagued, so he left the presence of the Lord, meaning he had to get out of Eden altogether. “And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, and dwelt in the land of Nod.” The word Nod, means wanderer, or like a vagabond, but let us turn this around: He went to a place where he felt God would not be there to convict him, to taunt him and make him feel bad. Over in this land, he became a wanderer, a drifter. He went from here to there. That is like a man of the world today. Once he knows God in some way, yet never surrenders his life to God, many times he will choose an occupation that moves him to some other locality, just to get away from people he knows, and that know him, feeling that by doing that, he can get everything out of his mind. Notice, “And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.” This would just be across the Euphrates and Tigress Rivers over in the region of what we know as Iran and Persia today, and all that vast region east of there. Now it says, and I am reading this for a basic reason, “And Cain knew his wife.” Who was his wife? It would have to be a sister. I say to doctors of divinity and anyone else who likes to hold on to traditional ideas, Cain’s wife would have to be his sister because in the reproductive laws of God, we notice in the Bible, for every male child that was born, even though you do not see the female mentioned, there was a female that followed, because that was the only way the male child could ever reproduce himself. Somewhere after his birth there will follow a female. That is the way God gave him of reproducing his kind to fulfill the commission, so Cain took his sister with him. I know we have a lot of carnal people that say, Well that just does not seem right. Look what happened to her. Let us leave that all in the hands of God. “And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.” From there on down through the 24th verse every carnal attribute that you see Satan cultivating in the world of fallen mankind at large today in the world, was designed by the devil through Cain’s line, dwelling over in the land of Nod. Polygamy was designed over there. Killing also, because we see that a man by the name of Lamech had to kill a man in self defense. They were the progenitors of the Elvis Presley kind that put up a religious front and then go about seeking to please the world and gain popularity. Also of the Beatles and their kind, Hank Williams Jr. and his kind, and world entertainers of all sorts. I ask you all a simple question, When you turn on the TV, who is it in the headlines of public attention today? World musical entertainers. Many that started out years ago singing only gospel songs have now picked it up and cross bred the gospel with that rock beat. This is a low down compromise. Does that mean God is not the author of music? He is the author of music, but it was something that would glorify Him, up until the devil perverted it. None of this rock beat mess they call music could ever glorify God. It glorifies the devil, and sin. Cain’s line were the inventors of musical instruments. They were the ones that first made them. Who is it that manufactures high priced guitars today, designed after Elvis Presley? You do not pay just three hundred dollars or so for them: The price goes up into the thousands. On and on it goes like that. This goes to show that in the land of Nod, in the Cain line, every carnal attribute that was going to be a basic influence in persuading some other kind of subjects, was bred up over there. As time went on, yes, back in Eden, as we get into the 5th chapter of Genesis, we see Adam and his line. His next son was Seth. From Seth on until we come to Enoch, the seventh from Adam, we see nothing about them being inventors of evil things, designers of things of a perverted nature. They were just doing what the Creator had commissioned them to do, “Be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth.”
MIXED MARRIAGES AND MUCH EVIL
When you get on into Genesis 6, you get the rest of the story concerning the earth’s population at that time, so that is where I want to take you at this time. Genesis 6, is the biography of the total progress from Eden to that present hour, as the writer records it. “And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, (All religionists will say that is mankind in general. You can keep your thoughts like that if you want to, but notice the rest of that verse.) and daughters were born unto them, (Do you mean to tell me no women had been born up until that hour? This is worded this way for a reason. If Cain could take his wife and go eastward, why is this mentioned so profoundly here? There is a reason. Let us look at it logically.) That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.” The religious world, the doctors of divinity especially, will tell you this is where fallen angels, demons, devils came down and incarnated themselves in flesh, to have sex with women who were supposed to be daughters of God. How completely ridiculous! Doctors of divinity, that is your bedtime story. You talk this in your seminaries, from the Catholics through the Protestants, and use it as a crutch, but it adds up to nothing but deception. You will say, Well the word son of God, points to an angel, because the same word was used for angels that was used for Adam: They were sons of God. I have no reason to question the usage of that word in that way, but we are dealing with inhabitants of the earth now, so sons of God points to sons of Adam for sure. Those carnal minds always hang their argument on something like word usage, because it looks to them like logic, but we know this, at no time in the Bible, has angelic beings ever been spoken of as having done such a terrible thing in the sense that they are allowed to project themselves into flesh to carry on a sex act with natural earthly women, daughters of Adam. If they hang their theory on something like that, how in the world can those same people think it is ridiculous when we are saying the serpent that we had in the garden, was a resurrected carry over from the prehistoric hour, and that he had the ability to talk and also to perform a sex act with Eve? How can people who call themselves Christians, people who are supposed to believe in a resurrection of the dead, choose to believe that angels would pervert themselves like that, rather than believe that the serpent was resurrected from the past, and that he fathered a son as a result of seducing Eve? It ought to be very obvious to anyone who knows anything at all, that our troubles in this life are not a result of Adam and Eve eating apples from a plant life tree. It is not nearly as hard for me to believe that this serpent was the progenitor of the line that fathered those daughters that displayed themselves before those sons of God, as it is to believe angels took on human bodies and seduced the daughters of Adam’s line. The serpent already had the physical body, and he already had the physical, genetic capabilities in his body. Naturally God gave him a help mate to reproduce himself by, so what is so hard to believe about that? I have been asked, Well what happened to his mate when he was cursed? His mate went with him. If his mate did not go with him, then he could not have reproduced himself: He would have become an extinct creature. Yet Isaiah 65 says that in the Millennium, the serpent will still get his meat out of the dust of the earth. God had to send his mate with him, because that was the law of God, that every creature should be fruitful and multiply. (Genesis 8:17) I am simply saying, Which is more logical, for Eve to have had a relationship with a creature like this, to fulfill the devil’s purpose, or for angels that have no need for sex, to project themselves into human bodies and come in unto the daughters of Adam? The devil, in order to bring forth his genetic instrument and have a line of natural minded mankind upon the earth, worked it all out by inspiring the serpent to seduce his master’s wife. Cain was the serpent’s son, but his line would be referred to as men, because all the elements of his physical makeup were derived from Eve’s body, and she was taken from man. I am saying this, and I hope you can see it, Those daughters of men, of Genesis 6:1, were what was being produced over there in the land of Nod. Then there came the time that those daughters of the men of Nod began to parade themselves before the sons of Adam’s line, and when they saw how beautiful they were, they began to take them for their wives. They were very beautiful to look at, but they had those evil attributes in them because they were descendants of one that the Bible says was of that wicked one (the devil). That is how John referred to Cain, in 1st John 3:12. I will read it to you. “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.” Cain was not a son of Adam. If he had been a son of Adam, he would have been a son of God. I challenge you, to find Cain’s name among the sons of Adam in any Bible genealogy. Here is what Genesis 6:1-2, says. “And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, ( over in the land of Nod) and daughters were born unto them, (2) That the sons of God (Adam’s sons) (Cain saw the daughters of men ‘s daughters) that they were fair;(pretty) and they took them wives of all which they chose.” You may ask, Why would those women come after the sons of Adam, which were sons of God? I believe the answer is very simple. Over in Eden, the place Cain left to get away from the presence of God, the sons of Adam’s line went right on propagating themselves according to the commission given Adam. In order for them to do that, God made sure they had a balance of male and female offspring. Adam’s first son was Seth, so how was Seth ever going to have a son, if he does not have a female counterpart? Therefore from Adam, his father, there was going to have to come a female child in order to give Seth the ability to propagate himself. When he grew up, he takes a wife and has a son. On and on and on the chain went like that, in Adam’s line. Therefore, even though emphasis is not placed upon the female children, there were female daughters being born in the family of God’s sons right on down the line. On the other hand though, since this other line was not established by the Creator, but exist because of perversion, God was not obligated to keep an even balance of male and female among them. Therefore because every carnal attribute was being bred up in them, there became an over abundance of female babies being born. In what God has established, He will keep a balanced picture, but over here in the line of men, they were not only giving birth to male children, they were giving birth to many female children. Because of that, I can visualize the hour when this excess of females began to explore the possibility for companionship. They no doubt began to explore the borderlines between Nod and Eden. How else would the sons of God ever have an opportunity to look upon those creatures? The sons of God did not go looking for them. Those daughters of men began to appear at the borderline between the two areas, and the sons of God began to intermarry with them. Then from those mixed marriages came children with attributes of both lines in them. Therefore from Cain you are going to get men like you see out here in our society today, stubborn, mean, ornery, and cruel as the devil himself. They will take a woman and knock her eyes out, break her ribs and beat her to a pulp. Why do you say that Bro. Jackson? Because the devil is behind every bit of it. Child abuse did not originate from the sons of God, the devil is the instigator of all of that. You can educate them until it runs out their ears, but if you are not able to change that nature, you are spending money in vain, and that is exactly what our society is up against. Naturally people who have no moral decency about them are forever in situations where children are born to them, which explains why there are so many more of them. Every human being is born into this world with attributes of both lines bred into them, so there is no way for anyone to know which way the child will go, but I believe it is very obvious that the bad out number the good in this day and hour. Oh there are many who profess to be Christians, but when it comes right down to the final test, a great majority of them go right back to the world, or they just live a life of compromise. Anyhow over in the land of Nod, every evil device that could possibly be thought of was being designed by the devil. When the females that were in excess of the males could find no companionship in their own territory, even though polygamy was already being practiced over there, they began to explore the possibility of finding a mate in Eden, and a lot of them did. As the sons of God began to look upon them, it says they saw that they were fair. I doubt if those females were any prettier than the ones born of Adam’s line: It was probably a case like we see today, wherein the women of the world display their bodies before men in an enticing way. There are some females, that this is all they live for, just to exploit their legs, their breasts, and as much of their body as possible to every man they come in contact with. Bro. Jackson, should you talk like that? Wait until the first warm day of spring, and they will look worse than snakes sliding out of their skin. They cannot hardly wait to show their legs. They cannot wait to show the midriff. They cannot wait to show the top of their breasts. They are out to exploit every possibility. That same spirit is here today that was in the land of Nod, where it was bred up and then finally brought over to Eden. When the sons of God saw that they were attractive, they reached out for them and there were so many of them, they took more than one. Does it not say they took them wives of all which they chose? That is what that means. They took unto themselves wives. They had their pick of choice. Why would the devil make such a move as that? Because that was his plan from the time he inspired the serpent to seduce Eve. There were certain genes that flowed through this line that had characteristics he wanted to become hereditary in the sons of God line. The devil knew that if he could take this excess of females and expose them to the sons of God line, he again would have a chance to strike another blow at the plan of God. Enoch knew what was going on, when he saw those sons of God running around with those Canaanite women. It is the same today, you Christian boys, and you young men, if you have a desire to live for God, do not go outside the family of faith and pick something out there in the world to be your wife. It seldom ever works. You are subscribing to a life of heartache and trouble when you do that. There are a few exceptions, but you do not have any guarantee that your situation will work out favorably. There are some that seem like they are willing to walk right along with you in your Christian walk until after the wedding, and pretty soon after that, there begins to be unresolvable differences, and pretty soon you are both going your separate ways. I realize when I say this, that when my wife and I were first married I was not a born again believer: I was just a church member. I married her on the basis of what I was, and she did me likewise, and the grace of God has given us a good marriage, but you have to understand, God got hold of both of us and moved us along together. The formula for a successful marriage is to love God and serve Him by upholding the Christian principles you have been taught, and when He reveals something more to you, be willing to walk in that. Those females from the land of Nod, were carrying in their loins every gene that could help break down the purpose of God. When the sons of God began to take them for their wives, what did this produce? The devil knew exactly what it would produce, and that is what he was after. It says, (6:4) “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.” Giants! Yes It is one thing to be seven feet tall, but it is another thing when you get 8 feet, 9 feet, 10 feet. Everything is out of proportion. How many understand what I am saying. When this came, the devil had an objective. Not all were giants, but some of them were. There were a few born that way, but there were also a few mental wizards in whatever size they were. When the Bible says men of renown, that means they had a great reputation, Dr. So and So, Professor So and So. Is it not strange though, that you cannot follow up on them through the Bible? No history records anything about them. They were the same sort we have in our colleges today. I do not say that to belittle the human race, but I do have to say, When that same kind took over our institutions of learning, and they have used their sophisticated mind’s to rape the conscience of Christian young people, I have no respect for them. They have absolutely desecrated the image of God, the purpose of God and the ways of God. They have thrown the Bible in the trash of human learning and brought on silly philosophical ways of introducing new concepts of life. That is why we have heartache today. People are crying. What are we going to do? Children are killing their parents and anyone else that gets in their way. Every day when the sun comes up, somewhere a teenager has just stabbed his mother, his father, or someone. You and I are seeing today exactly what went on just before the flood came. The mental wizards, the philosophers were the ones society went after, because they were men of renown. The world went after them, projected them to the forefront of everything else. What it all boils down to is, there were only a few people, a man by the name of Noah with three sons and their four wives, that God so fit to save alive when His judgment struck. The whole thing had become so perverted that even through the genetic flow of propagation of mankind, there stood three sons with no sisters to take as their wives, so they were compelled to take their wives from another household. Think of it. Someone in Singapore wants to say Noah was pure seed, but I say, If he was pure seed, why did he not take one of his sisters for a wife? It is absolutely obvious that his sons were not pure seed, so you want to believe that a righteous man who was a pure seed, went out and took a wife that was not? How foolish it is, to even suggest such a thing. The Bible says Noah’s father, after Noah was born, still begat sons and daughters. That is the lineage line. So Noah would have been very unwise, being a righteous man, not to have taken his sister. It goes to show, the seed line, the gene line, had already played itself out. Here, is what the Bible says about Noah, (6:9) “These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.” Now, whether Noah married his sister or someone else, their grandchildren are proof that at least his wife was not a pure seed. Everything by that time had all been mixed up because of what the devil planned in Adam’s beginning. I do not hesitate to say the serpent was the character, this fellow right here, (pointing to chart.) That fathered Cain into the world. The critics could say, Bro. Jackson, you are saying that God resurrected him from the prehistoric era and brought him over here to start His plan of an animal kingdom, is that right? That is exactly right. Why do I say it that way? All because you and I have our physical beginning right here. Through the different ages, dispensations if you please, man arrives here, in the Millennium, and when it is all over, and Revelation 21 and 22, is in effect, wherein we see the new heaven and new earth wherein dwelleth righteousness, did you know that everything that will be there will have been redeemed from here? It is right here, that man was put, and man was tested, and only those that are redeemed, are going to be put over here. I want you to understand, that you have to look at our beginning here, and realize that God salvaged part of the animal kingdom that had evolved to a state that He was pleased with, over in the prehistoric era. God salvaged that portion of it, that met the qualifications of fulfilling His purpose, and brought it over here and gave it to Adam. Back here, God was testing angels. Over here, He is testing man. The thing to remember is, Over here, He has his righteous angels that have already been tested, working with Him, carrying out His foreordained purpose for man. Then on over here, He has all of redeemed mankind with Him, in an era that is referred to as world without end, and there is not going to be one thing there, that has not lived here, or here. That includes both the angelic world and the human world. I hope all of you understand me. I am saying all that to show you that evolution is not an endless, haphazard thing, that is just running rampant. There is an architect behind every bit of it. That is why I said, If you could hang charts of cats, charts of chickens, and all the different types of cattle and horses we have today, you would have to realize they are products of evolution, because God just started out with one pair of each. This shows you what man has accomplished by knowing the law of reproduction, and what he can do to make these things become what he desires to have. They are all helpmates to man. I grant you, a little Chihuahua may not be able to carry a person out of a swimming hole, but he sure has a viscous bark. One of these small terriers like Ronnie & Lois had at one time, are not very big but they sure have a bark that is something terrible. He came up home one summer day, and the garage door was wide open. A black snake had come crawling through the yard and right into that garage. When that little dog saw that snake, do you think he ran? No. He got twice as big as he normally would have been, stood on tip toes and let the world know, Hey! There is a devil in here, come and get him out of here. You see, he is a help mate. They have an instinct for smell, eyes to see and ears to hear. They will let you know when something is going wrong around the place. That is why God wanted man to have these help mates. I am thankful for them. Therefore evolution is not some poisonous word. We just need to have the right understanding about it. I say again, It is not just a guess when we say the devil used the serpent in our garden to get at God’s plan, a plan which was ready to get under way. It is just as easy for us to see that, as it would have been to wait until we see the flood come, and just before the flood hit, here came fallen angels down, putting themselves into flesh, and doing what some believe they did. That is doctors of divinity kind of talk, coming from the highly educated world. That has become a fantasy, a crutch for them. They use that and throw it out there to excuse the issue, but I just have to say, Believing as we do about the serpent, makes it even clearer why we need a Savior, born of virgin birth, ONE in which there was no sin and iniquity. He came into this world, took upon Himself our sins and our reproaches, and God laid upon him the iniquity of all mankind. Hallelujah! What a mighty God we serve, and what a Savior!
THINGS ARE NOT ALWAYS WHAT THEY SEEM TO BE
Saints, I am enjoying this message and I sincerely hope all of you are to. I do not say that just because I am the one bringing it: I say it because I sincerely believe that somewhere before the end the Bride of Christ has to have a little insight as to what has been going on down through the ages. God will not resort to the educated world to educate the bride of Christ. Once again, let me say to the young people. Please do not think I am against you getting an education. However if you spend years in school to learn something in particular, and I see you doing some stupid things, that I know for sure, if you had the right kind of education you would have done it right, then do not be offended if I remind you of it. There is such a thing as practical learning. It is a fact, there have been people through time that never went half as far in school as others have, that knew a lot more about most things in life than those who went all the way through College. Others with an educational background that causes you to think, they have much knowledge, go out here and get themselves in a terrible dilemma, and along comes a fellow with very little formal education and says a few simple words that changes the whole picture. That is just the way life is. It reminds me of something that happened to Bro. Fulcher one time. He had just bought a new car. The first Sunday they had it, they decided to go for an afternoon ride. They had not gone far when it started spluttering. They came to a garage that happened to be a dealership garage. The mechanic said to them, We will have to take the carburetor off, it is definitely in the carburetor. They pulled the carburetor off and started to take it apart. This was back in the 1950’s, so keep in mind, the carburetor system back then was different than it is now. You did not have all the electronic gadgets on them. They tore it down and put it back together and said, Well, it should run now. It started up just fine, but as they went on down the road a few more miles the same thing happened again. They were fortunate enough to be in sight of a little road side filling station. They went in and said to the guy, This is a brand new car, but we have a problem: It just splutters and then dies. If I let it stand for a while then it will start back up and go so far before it happens again. The man walked over to the car, listened to it and said, Now don’t laugh at me, but that sounds like there is a leaf in the gas tank. Now just imagine, this was just an old hillbilly filling station attendant, but he knew what he was talking about. He said, When there is something like that in the gas tank, it just floats around as the fuel pump pulls on the gas line. Then, ever so often it comes over where the gas line comes up to the front and shuts it off. He said, I would be willing to bet my life there is a leaf in the gas tank. He took it off, turned it upside down and drained everything out, and that is exactly what it was. Someone had stuck a leaf in the gas tank. The dealership mechanics did not find the problem, but what some would refer to as an ignorant hillbilly, listened to the car run and told them exactly what was wrong with that brand new car. I realize that is exactly why the auto industry has computerized everything, changed the whole ignition system, the carburetor and everything, to fix it so you cannot work on your car any more. It is completely out of your category. You might be able to put new spark plugs in, but even then you may have to take a front wheel off to get to them. Nine times out of ten you have to tear half the side off to just do some simple little thing. They do not want you to be able to work on them yourself. They want you to bring it in to that shop and let them charge about two or three hundred dollars for doing something you could have fixed for seventeen dollars back in the 1950’s. They get you one way or the other. Those fellows did not go to school to learn to be that crooked: That part just followed. The point is, When you go to college to get an education, use it for the right reason when your are out of school. Well so much for that. At this time, I want us to go back and review what we have been looking at. If we were just studying evolution from the standpoint of the prehistoric age, we would have to explore a lot of what scientists and evolutionists, who have done the archaeological diggings have found, and let them give you their ideas. It is because of what they have found, digging here and there in the earth, that causes them to come up with so many years of this, and so many years of that. They know for sure that the planet has been in existence for more than six thousand years, but because they do not accept the Bible as anything worth believing, they have to concoct some kind of theory to explain what they find. They find certain things they date to have been on earth so many millions of years ago and your denominational religious systems jump straight up: That is impossible! We will have no part of your evolution. Or they will turn about and start compromising, like the Catholic Church is doing, instead of trying to reconcile these archaeological findings with what is recorded in the Bible. The scientist and archaeologist will say, It took so many hundred million years for this layer of rock to form, and so many more for this layer of rock to form and so forth. I just have to say to them, What yardstick did you use to determine how old that rock is? Do you have something to compare it to, that gives you a direct knowledge that it took so long for this and that to form? No. They do not. It is all based on an assumption, on a theory, but because they have taken their theories and ideas and swapped it one with another, then to the world in general they put it forth as, This is fact, but if we will look at the Bible the right way and will be honest with ourselves, there are some things we do not have to look at with misgivings. We cannot help but see the hand of God in them. I will say this, However many billions of years it took for all the layers of rock and such things to be formulated, the planet earth did not have to be where it is now. When you get this planet and all these other planets out here, collectively brought together somewhere in space, when the greatest chemist and scientist was at work, I do not have to worry about how many millions of years it took for this to be made and that to be made, or if there was a lot of combustion material burning at the same time. If everything eventually became scattered by a bang, I am persuaded that God was the ONE that caused that bang. I do not have to accept the viewpoint of those teachers of evolution. If there was a big bang, God was in the bang. So what this piece was, was just a part of that which had been millions of years in the making, but this is a part of it. As He brought it out here, God was in no hurry because He does not exist in time, time exists in Him. I just leave all the millions and billions of years of this and that, and let the scientists play with it. That is the only play thing they have. When it is all over and they have to meet God face to face, they are going to be the most sorry human beings that ever walked on the surface of this planet. About ten or twelve years ago, periodically in different magazines and on TV, scientists were caught up in this thing of cloning. They could clone life, take cells from this creature and clone another just like it. I think up to a point some scientists thought they ought to be allowed to go ahead and do it. But they were afraid if they did clone, they might get into some sort of problem with other types of society. One particular night we had been at home and turned the TV on, and there was a panel discussing what had been discussed in the magazines in previous months. This one scientist which was an old man, said these words, The scientific community has come a long way, but there is an old proverb we scientists have to live by: When the time comes we scientists can create life, God is going to pull the curtain and say, That is all boys. In other words He calls a halt to it. I thought, Here is an old scientist that had enough insight to recognize, that yes, they can do this if God permits. They can do that if God allows the time, but if God does not allow something, He will pull the curtain on them and will leave them sitting on the outside, ignorant, wondering why their theories and ideas were not allowed to be fulfilled. We are a people that are beneficiaries of what God is doing in this era of time. We can see from the Bible that the God of heaven, the Creator of all things, has a reason for doing things in three’s. How many are aware of that? It seems that in threes, is a way He completes certain things, so let us look at the planet from this standpoint: Here is the beginning of the prehistoric era, here is the beginning of our era, and here it is in the eternal age, world without end, Revelation 21 and 22. Here is the earth, you might say in its initial onset. God was in no hurry as far as how long it took for the planet to cool down, to develop and come through the various stages we have already discussed. I realize there are probably a lot of critics in the religious side that will hear this, or view the video and make their remarks, but that does not matter to me. I am saying all this to try to give God an opportunity to be recognized in it, and not just the scientists. I refuse to listen to a bunch of scientists, carnal men, that were created by the same God I was, going through their theories of ideas, when they do not even have a yardstick to measure by. Their theories are merely hypothetical, presumptuous ideas that fit their carnal reasoning, without giving God any opportunity to be recognized in any of it. Nevertheless I can say without hesitation, This was an era God designed for angels to be tested. He gave them power. Whatever kind of life God starts with here, we have already gone through that. Evolution as it was back then, was well known by the angelic body. We do not want to think angels are just little ornaments hung out here in space to decorate the universe. No. They are spirit beings, offspring of God, and they every one have a purpose to fulfill. Sometimes they are referred to as sons of God. They have been invested with power to assist God in carrying out His (God’s) plan the way (God) has delegated it to be carried out. God did not have to do it that way, it is just the way He chose to do it. God did not have to have anything: He alone is self sufficient. It goes to show God wants to share Himself with something. That something has to be something that loves Him in return, that can give Him honor and respect Him for being allowed to be part of His plan. Therefore when the angels were tested, out of that era was a body of angels that passed the test and were accepted. Whatever stages the animal kingdom, and however many animals there were, the last Ice Age did not come until that animal kingdom had finally come to the finished results God wanted. Nothing happens by chance with God. Why do I say that? All because when we do come to this era, we have the Bible that tells us where we started from and where we are going. It tells us and shows us, that we are at the threshold of the coming of Jesus Christ. Back in the prehistoric era something was done on the planet, and God judged it. According to Genesis 1 and 2, and the book of Jeremiah, the planet hung in space at one time, void, useless, and darkness was upon the face of the deep. This very thing sets a beautiful type of the sinner of our day. Keep in mind sin did not enter into the picture back then until later eons of time, but with us it entered the picture right at the onset. We can ask this, Was God caught unaware? Not at all. God knew exactly what would take place in our garden. Therefore that is why we can read Ephesians 1, the way it is written by the apostle Paul. With this in mind, in order for our era to be brought in, what does God do? Sure, He could have created us on some other planet, but to show forth His plan of redemption, that He is capable of redeeming something, what does He do? He reaches right out there to this planet that He has judged from another era, and justifies it. God is a justifier. Once God moves on the scene of that darkness and light begins to separate the mist and the vapors, so that the sunlight of the universe can begin to beam its ultraviolet rays upon the earth, then God looked upon the planet just as if it never had been in an Ice Age. This sets a beautiful type also: He is a Redeemer. He is a reconciler. He justified the planet. Therefore, even over here when we, at our onset, suddenly find ourselves born in sin, actually we have physical life. That gives us existence, but we are so earthly we have no spiritual communication with God whatsoever. So in order for us to really function in our era, the way God designed it to be in the beginning, we have to be justified. God could have absolutely destroyed Adam and Eve just because they did what they did, then went out and created another pair, but no, He wanted to show that He has the power to redeem, and He wanted to redeem something that will love Him in return, so it took this over here to establish an angelic family that would love Him. God knew He would use those righteous angels over here in this era to assist in what He was going to accomplish over here in this hour of time. Now, while the planet earth has existed for eons of years in its former state, we realize, and we have already discussed this, that our beginning and ending of all of this, will not take as many years as that did, and we realize also, that evolution continues right on, in the animal kingdom. That is well understood. I would have to say to religious people who have closed their ears and eyes to the reality of what evolution is all about, You will never have an answer for your critics that makes any sense. There are people in this world, their minds are so filled with the concrete of tradition, it is pitiful. You cannot get them to look at one earthly thing that goes beyond their tradition. They have played with fantasies of traditional ideas and assumptions, imagining this and that, and they have lived on that so long that when you talk about something that really begins to make sense, they look at you like you are a devil. I have to say to defend that statement, They said the same thing about Jesus. He came saying things that Jewish doctors of divinity despised. There are religionists today, that despise the fact that you would say something to rub their traditional ideas the wrong way. They would rather carry that tradition and guard it like some old people will antique furniture. I just use antique furniture as an example. Some people love antique furniture, they will give a fortune for it in order to fill a house full of furniture that is one or two hundred years old. There are people today who will fill their minds with antique religious ideas the same way. They guard it saying, This is what my grandpa believed. If it was good enough for grandpa, it is good enough for me. On and on they go, but they are as far from reality as one who knows nothing. God has restored the true Gospel of Jesus Christ to this age and they have rejected it, so where does that leave them? Where did it leave those pious Jews that rejected it the first time it was presented? There, is your answer.
GOD WORKS THROUGH TYPES
In our era of God’s dealings, we no sooner start, then bingo, Adam and Eve fall. This was the beginning of how sin starts to become a hereditary thing: It is imputed into the soul of the person. So after sixteen hundred years, the planet again became desecrated as a result of what man did in his hour of testing. We have already gone through all of this, how Lucifer used the serpent creature, which was in our garden, to do what he did, because he, (Lucifer) with the knowledge he had already obtained back here, knew exactly how to take that character and get at God, right here, with Adam and Eve. Nothing happens by chance. God knows exactly when it is going to be and how it is going to be. Therefore when God told Noah to build a boat, notice, the flood was going to come, to destroy that element of sinful, wicked people, but Noah was saved through his obedience in building the boat. As we look at the planet itself, what does this stand for? He (God) has justified the planet out of darkness and now He baptizes the planet with a water baptism. Right? If God justifies you, what does He say? Repent, and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ. God, all along, is using the planet to set a type, what He would do in His redemption of the man He is putting here on the earth. Just as man is to be baptized, so has the planet also gone through its baptism and it was not just a sprinkling. We can ask this, Did that baptism of the flood of water bring an end to sin? No. But it sure did set a type. Still sin is inbred: It is in the soul, not in the flesh. It is only through the flesh that sin, which is in the soul, is really allowed to express itself. Once again though mankind propagates himself on the earth, and we can see that God had already looked further ahead and made preparations to send us a Redeemer. This Redeemer was not the product of evolution: God bypassed every bit of that to bring forth a perfect Son. This is exactly why God created in a virgin womb that little nucleus of life. Then one night when Mary, Joseph’s wife, lay down to take her rest, she went into labor and brought forth that sinless son. Sometime during that night, with heaven looking on, she gave birth to her firstborn. That little child she bore was the first child born to a woman on the face of this earth that had everlasting life in it. Think of it. She was the woman that Eve should have been. Now you religionists that criticize me, if you have a better theory for the virgin birth, then I say it is time for you to come up with it. When God cursed the serpent and put enmity between him and Eve, He could have destroyed him from the face of the earth, so why did He leave him here and just strip him of his arms and legs and his vocal capabilities? God did not want to bring a total end to this creature that had been resurrected from that previous era. He was the highest means of intelligence that the former era had produced in its evolution process through all that time. I am not going to argue with the scientists because they do not have that man here to talk with and they just assume certain things about him. I just have to say to them, My way of looking at it is just as important to me as their theories they cook up in their schools are to them. You everyone know evolution is a fact, because we can see it here, in the horse business, in the cattle business, the chickens, dogs and whatever: so we understand that wherever man has domesticated certain species of animal life, you can see evolution in it. Back here, in the former era, angels knew all about evolution, how it functioned, what it was to produce, and what it could be made to produce. Therefore I can say this, Somewhere when the first man appears, (or man-like creature) God has created it as a species, but in the process of time God will mutate from the two and there will come forth this (the one you see on the chart). Now let me explain something to you, to expand upon this thing of evolution.
HOW THE EFFECTS OF ENVIRONMENT AND FOOD PASS OFF INTO OUR GENES
I would have to go into certain breeding techniques of the professional horse breeders and such like, how they go about the things they do, in order for you to understand completely, this process of evolution, and that is why I have to say, These educators today, who only study theories, really have no background in the animal kingdom to compare their theories to, as to what they are implying. They assume this and they assume that, but they have nothing to vindicate their assumptions. It is a known fact, when you take human beings and isolate them into certain parts of the earth where there is a certain climatic condition, along with certain types of food and so forth, the genes that flow in their bodies are eventually affected by those conditions, so that in process of time the reproductive qualities of the bodies they possess, (because the Creator that designed those bodies had this in mind) will begin to express that difference. In whatever state they are in at that time, once they are put within a certain environment of climate and food the body being subjected to all of that will begin to affect the genes they pass on to their offspring, as to what kind of offspring they will bring into existence. How many understand my point? When the horses were first brought into this country by the Spanish, some of those herds were captured by the Indians. Then over a period of years some of those horses were freed from the Indians and went into the wild. They bred in the wild. Some of those herds actually became extinct in their native area. Some of them became lost, in the Grand Canyon, and because of their food intake, as well as their environment, and because of that, many years ago they found the miniature horses in the Grand Canyon. He was the descendant of what had been brought over by the Spanish. The environment he had been brought up in, as well as the inbreeding, the type of terrain, the food intake and everything else he was subjected to made him a miniature species. Well just reverse that and take it the other way. Bring him out of there, put him in an environment where the food he eats is rich in nutrients and the climate is different, and this begins to communicate to the body’s reproductive capability. Why is it like that? The Creator has established a law that through whatever this body is subjected to, it will transmit this into its ability to reproduce itself, and it will reproduce itself according to the environment that it is subjected to. You scientists ought to have enough sense to realize that. Let me use modern techniques. In WW2 it was a known fact, that during WW1, they took the average height of the Allied soldier of that hour. He was one inch taller than the tallest Medieval knight. The knights were always the largest men. But the average soldier of WW1 was one inch taller than him. When you come to WW2, though, the average soldier was an inch taller than the WW1 soldier. Why? It is because time, living conditions and the things he has used his intelligence for to prepare his habitation, his environment, to take the strain out of life, the strain out of living, then we can see the ability to reproduce himself is governed by something the Creator himself has designed through a law. I have to say, common sense tells me you do not have to go to college to learn that. Just watch over the face of the earth and pay attention. Take the Eskimos for example, they have the characteristics of the Asians in Mongolia. Follow the Eskimos traditions, the bone structure and the hair. Then come on down the Rocky Mountain chain, right off into the plains of North America and you will see that all those Indian tribes carry certain characteristics that are different. You will find in the various tribes of Indians, that there begins to show a breakup, and that is attributed to the environment. It is what they are subjected to that causes the change. That is the way the Creator designed it. I say that without elaborating any more. Back here, those angels watched over this. There is no doubt in my mind there were a lot of things that went on in the breeding of this animal kingdom, that maybe the devil thought, I need them much larger. I saw a program on TV that was showing a zoo somewhere. They showed a lizard that at full length would be ten feet long. When it bites or stings it is death. When that thing came crawling around, they move very slow, but I thought, That thing looks exactly like a dinosaur. Use lens that multiply him about ten times, and you will have a dinosaur. I hope you understand what I am saying: I have to believe that God, when He created the beginning of life and the various animals, that evolution eventually brought about what they ended up with. It did not all start from just one cell, like they want you to believe. It all started from God. God was that beginning cell, because He is life everywhere He is. He caused everything to start in different forms and shapes. As things on the planet began to change, plant life, vegetation, this in a sense affected the habitat, which in turn affected the particular animal species that found its way into that habitat. Then the Creator, having created these laws by how this creature will reproduce himself, what he will become like, I can see the reason why so many millions of years have come about. With God being the architect, the designer of every bit of it, He got the results He was after. The only thing is, the devil perverts what God brings forth, and runs things to extremes. When you come to this character, (What they call “The Modern Man”) whether it was ninety thousand years back, or a hundred and fifty thousand, it matters not to me. Our modern day scientists look at it from the standpoint that we are his offspring, I will say this, A little bit of his seed did get mixed in, back in the garden of Eden, when the serpent seduced Eve and she brought forth Cain. Do you understand what I am saying? That is what the devil was after. Keep in mind, The devil is not taking shots in the dark: He knows what he is after, he knows why, and he knows when. The beauty of it is, he will never succeed beyond what God permits. When things did reach a certain stage in the prehistoric era that the animal kingdom of that hour had reached a state of evolution that went beyond what God wanted, because the devil has taken it and perverted it, God said, That is as far as I can let this go. Only God Himself knows what the devil was allowed to do, and only God Himself had the power to do anything about it. One thing is sure, when He did bring it to an end He reserved the right to resurrect any of them He wanted to give Adam over here in our beginning. He did not have to make a new bunch of animals. He resurrected from the planet earth an element of them to be Adam’s help mates. Bro. Jackson, why do you say He had to do it that way? Because if He did not, then He would have lost everything he had purposed to accomplish in that former era. When man has passed his Millennium and we get over into the eternal age, there will be nothing there, that has not been redeemed from this present era. God is a Redeemer. When He resurrected an animal kingdom for Adam, He resurrected them in proportion of size the way He wanted them for Adam’s benefit. Someone asked the other night, Bro. Jackson, we read in the book of Job something about the crooked serpent, that sea monster that has a special name, Do you think that creature really existed? I have no doubt he existed, and probably some more like him. How would you like to be in a pleasure yacht fifteen miles off the coast, minding your own business, enjoying your beautiful boat you spent about sixty thousand dollars for, and that thing come out of the bottom of the ocean and upsets your little plaything? Be glad that you do not have to contend with that thing. They rescued a man near Australia the other day. I think there were two or three fellows in it, but a whale came along and upset their yacht. Here it was floating on top of the water, upside down, when the rescuers came along. If a whale could do that, what would that other rascal have done? My point is this, In the prehistoric hour, there was no man floating around in yachts on the water bodies that were here then: Therefore those creatures no doubt existed. I have no reason to doubt it. When the time came, that God gave the planet marine life, He knew that one day man would be traveling the seas like they are today. Therefore He put marine life here that is in proportion of size, where it is safe for man to travel the seas. The shark is an enemy, if man is left in the water alone, but we all understand that. Also, when God knew that it was time to re-activate the planet and bring it out of its void state, He had an angelic family He brought over to this era to assist Him. He resurrected a portion of that prior animal kingdom and gave them to Adam to start once again the multiplication process, and the subduing of the planet, dressing it, replenishing it, yes filling it up again, just as it had been done back here. Man has now lived here for hundreds and thousands of years having no knowledge of most of the past, but I am convinced that many a man, two, three, four hundred years back, if they were privileged to find one of those fossilized bones, were amazed at the vast size of it, and no doubt had a lot of questions about it, but there were no ready answers. The Bible does not go into great specifics and explanations, but there are clues hidden among the chapters and verses, and when the time came for it to be known, the Spirit of God began to lead toward those clues. In the last hundred years of this Age, there has been much truth come to light. There has been more fossilized bones brought out of the face of the earth and put in museums here in the last fifty years than anyone would have ever dreamed of. It is an open testimony to the fact that God had this planet populated at one time.
AFTER BAPTISM, THEN WHAT
Well we were talking about types, so the earth has had its baptism in water. We are in the second stage of the earth being used. We have come through the flood era. (The water baptism) We are now living in the Grace Age. This whole thing covers six thousand years of time. In this Grace Age, sin is still present in the human race, yet there are a few that find redemption in the overall plan of God. Here is what is getting ready to happen. In 2nd Peter 3:10 it tells us that one of these days, in the great day of the Lord, God is going to shake this planet, and it is literally going to be purged with fire. Peter said it would burn. In the New Testament, John said that when Christ would come He would indeed baptize us with the Holy Ghost and with fire. What does Holy Ghost fire do? It is not for flesh: it is to purge the nature of the inward soul, thereby cleansing that nature, and that helps the soul to be released, to really live a devoted and dedicated life to God. Yet that is not the end. We are looking for the finished work, and that is to be glorified by being changed and resurrected in the likeness of Jesus Christ. That is why from baptism, Holy Ghost fire baptism, we are then changed and made immortal. Everything then meets those three stages of redemption for man here on this planet. We can see then, that before the planet goes into the Millennium, God is going to cleanse it with a baptism of fire. Now there are theologically different opinions. Many will say that the baptism of fire does not come until the Millennium is over. I have to repudiate that. That baptism of fire absolutely comes at the coming of Christ when the heavens and earth shall melt with fervent heat and the planet is going to be shaken and such like. That baptism of fire does not destroy all animal life. No. It is going to devastate things, it is going to bring an end to life in a lot of different places, but it is mainly sinful mankind that God is after. There are going to be animals left alive, that will survive all of it. That is why in the book of Revelation, it plainly says God speaks to the fowls of heaven and the beasts of the field, come and eat flesh till ye be filled, drink blood till ye be drunk, for this is the supper of the great God. You and I know if that fire is going to be of such a devastating extent that it destroys the existence of human beings completely, then animals have to have oxygen to breathe also. So if there are a few men left, so will there be a few animals left. Your environmentalists today, who are trying to save this earth, I would have to say, Forget it, God is going to tear your play house to pieces one of these days. When God gets through with it, He is going to cleanse this planet from all the traces of mans abuse, and from all the affects of sinful, selfish, greedy mankind that is propagated upon it. Then through the Millennium reign itself there will be an element of mortal flesh (people) that will pass right over from this hour right into the Millennium. They are the servant type people over which the Bride will rule and reign. These are the people, that from one end of the earth to the other, they will multiply and propagate life again on the planet, but in that day, because there is a righteous people who have already been immortalized, and are in glorified bodies, they will rule and reign with Christ in a righteous reign. They are His queen. Therefore only divine knowledge and the righteous laws of God will be executed. That is why it says in the Psalms, and I believe also in Isaiah, and the knowledge and the glory of God shall cover the earth as the waters that cover the sea. For one thousand years, this planet is going to go through a redemptive process that will return it to its original state.
WHAT ABOUT THE MILLENNIUM?
Some may ask, Why is God doing all of what you say He is doing, He already has part of His family redeemed? That is why they are already glorified, but He is leaving them in the present world system, not the system of government, but in the world in the natural sense as it is right now, because that is why He is going to have a mortal people pass over into that era. Our redemption has to start having its effect on the planet. This is why for one thousand years, nothing but peace, tranquility, righteousness, and true, divine knowledge is established again to the propagating society that God is using to replenish the earth. There will be no beer joints. Death will only be a means of discipline. (You read that in Isaiah 65.) It is very possible for the natural man to live a thousand years, if he lives right, because the knowledge of the Lord will be propagated here. I will have to say, because of the righteous people here with these mortal subjects, Here, is where every law that God wants to be put forth, in nature, vegetation and everything will flourish. There will be no corporate industries hogging the natural resources, filling the heavens with all kinds of monoxides and pollution that makes it hard for people to breathe. We are going to see an era of time for a thousand years, when nothing but righteousness rules. What a beautiful place this is going to be. What is God doing? He is taking His redeemed that have already passed into immortality, those that already have glorified bodies, and for a thousand years they are going to live here on this earth ruling with the KING. As for the mortal people, there will only be a few that start out, but as time goes on these few people that God will use, will multiply over the face of the earth and fill it. Those people will only know to do good during all that time because evil has been kept from them. The devil is bound for the entire time, so he (old Lucifer, as we see in Isaiah 14, that did what he did, will not be allowed to pollute and pervert anything during the thousand years. However, because those born during that time have never been tested, God will loose him for a little while and allow him to go among those people and test them. As soon as he gets his crowd sorted out and gathered together, God will intervene and end all of that for the rest of eternity. Therefore as the Millennium comes to a close, we can say, Seven thousand years of man’s existence here on earth is completed and God has fulfilled His redemptive process. He has redeemed His foreknown family, and He has redeemed the earth. Then, is when we can say the earth has gone through its baptism of water, and its baptism of fire, and now it moves into the eternal stage, and here is where heaven and earth kiss. Do you catch the picture? That is when the new city (Jerusalem) is seen coming down out of heaven, adorned as a Bride prepared for her husband. Heaven and earth are again merged together. That is why Paul wrote in Ephesians like he did, how that in that day He will gather together all things that are in heaven, (the spirit world) and all things that are on earth, all in one glorified kingdom, and that has consummated God’s ability to redeem something that became lost. We can see the earth glorified, because God is her glory. Here then, is the earth with a family of immortal people, saints of the various ages. God has the earth repopulated according to His perfect design, known of Him from before the foundation of the world.
MAN LOST HIS SERVANT
Man lost the serpent in the very beginning in our Eden. The serpent would have been a servant type creature to do man’s work for him, had things not turned out as they did. They looked more like man than any other of the animals, and they had the ability of vocal communication with man. God designed it that way, in order for them to receive instructions from their masters. They were to do all the manual labor. Do not ever imagine that Adam would have ever had any reason to speak harshly to the serpent. It was not meant for there to have been any such, and we will not hear things like that in the Age to come. Through the centuries though, look what man has done to other living beings all over the world since sin entered the picture. Entire races of people have been taken out and exterminated, simply because of man’s greedy, sinful, lustful purposes. When I think of Egypt, and how long the children of Israel were in bondage down there, it really brings the reality of man’s sin to the forefront of my mind. That last hundred years, God only knows the number of Jewish people that lost their lives, being worked to death just to build that empire of the Egyptian dynasty. There will be no more of that when this present Age ends. Nevertheless, God will have to allow this mortal element that will repopulate the planet again, to be tested by the devil when the Millennium is over, but just for a little season. I am going to explain it like this, He will not be turned loose so he can start another war. No. When Armageddon is fought here at the end of this Age, that is the last earthly war between human beings that will ever be fought on this planet. Well why is he turned loose? Well just try to imagine living on earth in the Millennium and all those mortals out of this era passing over to repopulate the planet, and think of all the children born to them during that thousand years, human beings that have never been tested, never tempted, never knowing what it is to be tempted and tested as you and I have been. Would God be fair to have had all these other saints that are going to be there, who have lived in these other eras of time and been constantly harassed by the devil, if He let this last bunch go into the eternal age without being tested? Just think, what many of the others have suffered because of the devil’s schemes. Some were slaughtered like animals, martyred and all such like, just for believing in God. No saints, Satan is loosed just for a little season, so he can separate from among those mortals all such as can be deceived by him. Is he going to pollute the earth again. No. Whatever the animal life, and whatever the plant life looks like, since God has restored perfect knowledge and His laws by how these people are to apply these things to the earth, to vegetation, to the animal kingdom and such, it will all remain that way. That is all part of redemption. The devil himself is a spirit. He is going to be turned loose to come against those people. Naturally he has a plan. He is going to come against those mortal people to see if they will line up with him in his plot. We know, according to Revelation 20:7-9, that many will be deceived. I want to say something now and I want to say it in the right way. It says in the book of Revelation that he will go out upon the breadth of the earth from Gog to Magog. When we take those words to the Bible, there is no other lineup in the scripture, except in Ezekiel 38 and 39, where we can find them. Young people, I want to tell you something, Education is not the cure for the world’s ills today. Modern man thinks it is, but we had less crime when we still had more illiteracy. It is the spirit of this Age, that is the problem. When we were in Russia, there is just something about the environment in Russia, as you are walking down the sidewalk, or riding on a bus, that you cannot help but notice. You see young people, maybe in their late teens or early twenties, all going to a university, to an institution to learn, thinking that is the answer to their problems. I have to ask, What are they learning? They have never been allowed to learn anything about God. You find very few Russian people that have ever known the joy of being able to stop and say, Good morning Joe, and then being able to stand and chat for a while. You saw very little of that. You could not help but feel that there was an environment of hostility present everywhere. They have lived that long without being able to communicate and be friendly because of fear, not knowing what that other person believed, or whether he might betray him to the Communist party or not. All of that adds up to this, After spending all that money to educate their society in Marxism and Leninism, they have a society that is scared half to death all the time. Person after person would come through the prayer line and say, Pray for me: I have hallucinations, I see things coming into my home, I am scared of this. I thought to myself, These people are telling us what has been going on. Did they learn that in their universities? No. That is something that all the education that system has crammed down their throats, has not been able to help them entertain something that is actually a positive part of every human. They have a high rate of suicide. They have a high rate of alcoholism. They have a high rate of insanity also, because they cut God completely out of the picture. They did not want Him, and without Him, this is how you end up. I remember a young daughter that came with her mother to our meetings and asked, Pray for us. The woman’s husband was an alcoholic. Every dime he got was spent on alcohol. The Russian people are drinking themselves to death. Many of them are being tormented by demons. They are a people that are vulnerable to everything the devil wants to throw at them. As I would get on a bus, I thought to myself, I can see why the devil will know exactly where to start his plot when the Millennium is over. When it says from Gog to Magog, I have to believe, even a thousand years will not heal the scars of what a hundred years of atheism has done to their society. Can you see what I am talking about? If they were vulnerable to let the devil come in to them and do what he has done for the past eighty to one hundred years, then somewhere the effect of it has left itself embedded in the spirit of those people. That is why most everyone in Russia is saying, We have to get a good education. Only through a good education, can we achieve what we need to in life. Well if you do not know God, your education will do very little for you. I am thankful to God, for His love and grace. I thank God that He allowed me to be born in a nation that has, at least in its past, upheld the existence of a sovereign God. This atheistic thing has moved in and seemingly taken over our institutions that at one time upheld the Bible. The Bible was the number one book in every library, yet today we have a vast number of teachers in our educational system that will not allow the Bible to even be recognized as the inspired word of God. When all this gay stuff, homosexuality and perversions of every sort began to slip into our society, in various colleges they were teaching homosexuality. When they start teaching sin, the devil is standing in their doorway. That is what the devil was after when he brought that serpent creature into our garden, talking to Eve like he did. I realize this might hurt a lot of religious theologians, but let me say to them, Sex started man’s downfall. It was the way the devil introduced it, that caused the problem. If the devil had never been allowed to come into the garden using the serpent creature like that, the word sex, would have been no more embarrassing than any other word. Every living being on the face of this earth, whether it is a bird, an animal or whatever, propagation has come about by an intimate relationship. The devil knew what he was doing in our garden of Eden. He knew those two trees in the midst of the garden were not plant life trees. I explain it like this, The tree of knowledge was a symbol. That is why God told Adam, Of every tree thou mayest freely eat, even of the tree of life, but He warned him, Do not eat of the tree of knowledge or you will die. He had no reason to warn him about the tree of life: They were supposed to partake of it. That would have been to partake of the sex act only for the purpose of reproducing themselves. That is what eating, or partaking of the tree of life would have been. All plant life was for the replenishing of the physical bodies they were placed in, but the tree of life was for the replenishing of the earth with others like themselves. If the tree of life would have been the only tree that the intimate act would have been related to, it would have been a different story. it is through the female, that this law is regulated. In the animal kingdom it is the same way. It is that period that sets up in the body of the female, allowing her to know exactly when it is time to give herself to the male in that intimate relationship for reproduction. In that relationship, there would not have been anything derogatory. How could a Holy God institute something filthy as a means of His children fulfilling His command for them to “Be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth?” Are you listening to me? I hope you are! The devil can always turn something holy around and make something filthy out of it. If Eve would have said to the serpent, Get away and leave me alone, and then waited until she felt that period setting up in her body and gone to her husband, she would have given birth to a son or daughter that would have had eternal life in them, instead of imputed death. I want to say to the critics, When that period would have passed from the woman’s body, they would never have been driven down the avenue of lust and burning passion. They would not have even known that this same intimate act could be used for pleasure any time they chose. That knowledge came to them through that other tree in the midst of the garden. That tree fulfilled the devil’s plan for replenishing the earth. In other words, to partake of that tree, is to enter into the sex act for pure pleasure, instead of just for the purpose of the Creator. They still fulfilled the command to be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth, but by doing it from that tree, they filled the earth with offspring that had death abiding in them. If they had fulfilled that command from the tree of life, there never would have been a Cain in the picture. Neither would there have ever been murder or perversion of any kind in the picture. All of their emotions would have been under control at all times, just like the animal kingdom. When you watch the animal kingdom, you never see them enter into that act except for reproduction. Through the years, I have always had some horses on the farm. I have had five stallions since 1968, and I have let them run with the females. Very few times would I stable them to keep them away from the females. The reason I did that was, as long as the male is allowed to run in freedom with the females, most of the time he knows none of them are ready for such a relationship, so he is just minding his own business. You do not see him fighting the mares like man will a woman today, beating them up and raping them. You do not see that in the animal kingdom. I am saying that to make it as simple as can be, yet make it sound like God is glorified in it. When one of those females begins to come into her period, you see that female look him up. That is the way it was supposed to be with the human family. Lucifer knew what he was doing when he inspired the serpent to use his physical body to seduce Eve and plant a seed in her that would produce a man in his genetic likeness. After that gene is planted, then God cursed the serpent, so he could never repeat that act again. But because intimacy has been introduced for pleasure only, and not just for the purpose of child bearing, God had to fix things so they could not partake of both trees, (both laws) so he cursed the woman’s reproductive abilities. He fixed it so no woman after that, would ever know exactly when she could go to her husband just for reproduction only. Then, as a penalty for disobedience, He added all the pain and sorrow that goes with child bearing under the law of the tree of knowledge. If God would have killed them for disobeying Him, His plan would have been thwarted. Instead, He made a provision for redeeming them. He provided a substitute. He drove man from the garden to live under this law of pleasure, the tree of knowledge. To the critics who climb a tree over what I am saying, Do you not see your own generation of youth ravaged, in our institutions of learning, exposed to all this physical perversion, yet you are willing to say that what I am teaching is out of the pit of hell? You are ignorant and do not know it, and refuse to accept the truth. The devil is laughing at you, because he is taking your own generation of children away from you and has marred them, raped their innocent minds and conscience, and has turned them into creatures that feel like they should have the freedom to enjoy an active sex life at any age, no matter what anyone thinks about it. I noticed in the Jerusalem Post, that the president of Israel, I believe his name is Wiseman, was asked in a public place what he thought about the gay Israel. Here was the president of Israel, a Jew, that had to reply to that question, and he replied like this, I admire the man that wants to be a man. I admire the woman that wants to be a woman and act and conduct herself accordingly, but I have no use for these perverts and their type of lifestyle. Do you know what happened? Out of the Jewish society they said, Away with him! We want a better president than that. This goes to show, all over the world today, there has settled a spirit of perversion on mankind. It is the same spirit, or from the same source as the one that caused some other Jews to say, Crucify Jesus! And give us Barabbas. Crucify righteousness! Crucify truth, but give us all the perversions of the world and we will be happy. Our trouble started with a sex act in the garden, and is has been a main source of trouble in the human race ever since. What we are really faced with in this hour, is the reality that ungodliness is fast becoming the order of the day, just like it was before the flood in Noah’s day. Only the coming of Jesus Christ will change these conditions that are prevailing all around us. If you want to know what God thinks about that kind of lifestyle, go back and read what the Bible says about those perverts and all of their ungodliness down in Sodom and Gomorrah. God destroyed all of them, burned their cities, and decreed that no one will ever live there again. Notice also what it says about those who align themselves with Satan when the Millennium is over and he is loosed for a little season: All those that yield to him are cast completely out of the plan of God. Then we see the books are opened, the sea gives up the dead, hell gives up the dead an all receive final judgment for their wickedness and they are cast into the lake of fire. Anyone whose name was not written in the book of life will be cast into the lake of fire. That cleanses the planet from all the traces of sin that has been multiplying upon it ever since Cain murdered Abel. God will not let the planet move over into the eternal age having graves with the bodies of sinners still in them. The planet must be completely redeemed from all traces of sin before it passes into that age. With this in mind just try to visualize, There goes the planet earth into the eternal age, a planet that has been completely redeemed and glorified. Vegetation is back on it, there are no more huge bodies of water, and once again, everything is back like it was before Adam sinned. The Bible says, And there is no more sea. That means there is no more Pacific Ocean, no more Atlantic Ocean. There will be bodies of water, yes, but no mass bodies of water. Why do we say that? Because the Bible says it. What is the reason for that? It is because the planet has been redeemed, reconciled back to its perfect relationship with God and the spirit world. God can once again come down and glorify Himself in it. As Paul says in 1st Corinthians 15, when that last enemy, which is death itself, has been destroyed, through Jesus Christ and His redemptive work, only then can that be done. Then, is when the kingdom shall be delivered back up to God the Father, the eternal Spirit, that He (God) may be all in all. It is going to be wonderful, living here then. When we get over into the Millennium and look back, we will be able to see things a lot better then, than we do now. I hope you can now see how the earth moves from a justified state, through a sanctified state, and then to a glorified state, never to be marred or changed by sin again. Amen.
