THE LAST ISSUE ENDED WITH A REBUKE TO THE LAW MAKERS OF OUR NATION, BECAUSE OF THE PREVAILING SPIRIT OF THIS AGE, THAT HAS ALLOWED THE DEVIL TO INFLUENCE EVERY DECISION THEY MAKE, IGNORING THE PRINCIPLES OUR FOUNDING FATHERS WERE GUIDED BY. IN THIS ISSUE, WE WANT TO START OUT BY EXPLAINING SOME COMMON SENSE FACTS THAT THE TRUE BELIEVER CAN BE GUIDED BY, TO AVOID FALLING INTO THE SAME T R AP DENOMINATIONAL RELIGIOUS LEADERS ARE LEADING THEIR FOLLOWERS INTO.
The things we are going to be dealing with first, might cause any stranger in our midst to wonder what we are up to, but I want to say to anyone who might have adverse feelings about this, Please listen carefully to what I have to say and I believe you will have to say Amen, when it is fully explained. I do not claim to be the smartest man alive, but God has enabled me to see the reality of some things others are totally confused about and I hope to help all of you see them likewise. When you see these pictures of cattle up here do not allow Satan to put your mind in a spin: They are only being used to illustrate something we everyone need to realize, that all of them have come into being from the offspring of the one pair of cattle Noah took into the ark with him before the flood came. I would venture to say, that genetically, none of these are over two hundred years old. Some have been bred up in the last 25 to 30 years, most of them in Europe. Over here, we have pictures of the light body cow, the dairy cow. Here is a picture of a typical American cow, when America was first discovered. This is a Jersey, and this one is a Guernsey. You can see that all of these are light bodied. I have a reason for pointing them out to you, but I am not going to start on that right now. I think, that by the time we get the message completed, and only the Lord knows when that will be, we are going to learn from the Bible, as like that, yet they assume it all civilization that had used them for happened that way and teach it as a many years as slaves, treated them fact. The fact that they are hitting like they were nothing, until they hard in the last sixty or seventy cried unto God and were heard. years, shows beyond the shadow of God heard their cry and raised up planet earth itself was literally a any doubt that the devil is trying this man to deliver them. It was created in six days of twenty four to rid from the mind’s of this while he was leading them through hours. This automatically makes present generation of young people, those men deniers of the fact that any trace of God as a Creator, and i the planet earth existed here more instill in their mind’s that there is no than six or seven thousand years devil. Though this gang teach that something just happened, to bring before the time they allow for; and the truth is, It was here millions of everything into being, we have in the Bible a six thousand year years before the time they allow for a picture of our existence. This six To them, this earth had its thousand years, w e are going to beginning in the 1″ chapter of show you, is running precisely with Genesis, with six days of twenty the type that is established in four hours each. This would Genesis, chapter 1.You may not absolutely, if you believe this, cause understand it just now, but we have you to come face to face with a wall these pictures here, to try to show you cannot see past, because all you, that if these types of cattle these bones that archaeologists and were to die, and their bones were to historians the world over are digging from the crust of the earth, be found a million years from now, even from mountain plateaus, and this light breed over here, if fossilized findings of the dinosaurs, they were to die and their bones be as well as many other things, found a million years from now, dogmatically prove that there were and if the same kind of atheist and prehistoric creatures on this planet evolutionist were on the scene then, long before the time God began to they would compare this carcass manifest the inhabitants we speak of with that carcass and say, See here, from reading the first chapters of this is proof that evolution is a fact.

He does not live in time: are ready to get back into the Time exists in Him. He lives in the message, so let us go to Genesis and present, but do not think He does begin. The Bible says, “In the not remember everything that ever beginning.” Now that does not tell took place in the past. God created you when the beginning was. It the heaven and the earth. And the does not say whether the beginning earth (at the time God began to was six thousand years ago, or six express certain things) was without billion years ago, or what, it just form and void: and darkness was says, In the beginning.

Under what past, the earth was brought to such conditions? Coming through the a state. Naturally there is no wilderness. He did not write them recorded history of any prehistoric while he was growing up in Egypt: period, or we could not refer to it as he wrote them while on the a prehistoric era: it just declares the wilderness journey. The Bible says fact that in the beginning God in the book of Hebrews, that Moses created the earth. To me, that is a was a learned man in all the ways of FACT. At the point where Moses the Egyptians, yet he was not an was to begin his record, bringing all Egyptian. God chose him to be a of what we are familiar with into leader, so he was leading the focus, the earth was without form They have never found anything children of Israel out of a and void. The word void, means, well as the research I will endeavor to present from different other sources, like, from the web sites we have access to, as well as from the writings of the Anti-Nicene fathers, that there is no such thing as anyone ever being able to prove that life on this planet just happened, without the engineering of a sovereign intellect that is beyond our complete understanding. I just have to say, Thank you Lord, for allowing us to understand as much as we do! HE DID NOT HAVE TO DO IT, BUT HE DID. WHY? BECAUSE THIS IS THE GENERATION OF BELIEVERS THAT WERE FOREORDAINED TO UNDERSTAND THE THINGS THAT HAVE BEEN GREAT MYSTERIES TO EVERY OTHER GENERATION SINCE THE FIRST CHURCH AGE THE APOSTLES TAUGHT. The time is coming, when we get the message done, you will see for yourselves, that everything that is written in the book has been written in a strategic way to form a picture. The educated of the world, those who may know all about adjectives, verbs, and nouns, if they cannot look at the thought that is conveyed in the way certain things are written, all they have is just a mental picture that they are naturally going to think explains everything, but their picture is wrong. I have read in past days, how many men of religion want to hold to the idea that the
the wilderness on their way to the promised land, that God began to inspire Moses to write a record of the various things we read about.. When you think about the book of Genesis, the fact that the word Genesis is the title, indicates that it is the history of the genes. That has nothing whatsoever to do with the prehistoric era of the planet. It is simply the history of the genetic laws that rule this present planet, as God has put an animal kingdom and a family of human beings called the sons of God, here to repopulate. Since the first verse says, “In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth, we are not going to argue with any scientist who has used his God-given sense in the right way, because every one I have read about, they say from their findings, their analysis of everything, that the planet has to be close to, from 4 1/2 to 6 billion years old. I have no argument with that, but the point is, wherever in time it was, God was the author of it. GOD different theories, and someone presents them as fact. Then, every fifty or sixty years someone comes along and changes what the ones before him have said. He comes up with another thought and that is what they teach. They put these things in our colleges and universities and compel the young generation of people to listen to their theories. They present their theories as fact. There has not been a scientist yet, that has brought out before mankind any trace of the beginning of the first form of life that ever hit this planet. Well anyhow, what those kind put out are only theories, assumptions. There are no findings of any particular species where it eventually started as it broke off, from whatever might have been the original cell life, and started reproducing itself, then comes down the line so far and evolves off into something else.

I have read in past days, how many men of religion want to hold to the idea that the planet earth itself was literally created in six days of twenty four hours. This automatically makes those men deniers of the fact that the planet earth existed here more than six or seven thousand years before the time they allow for; and the truth is, It was here millions of years before the time they allow for. To them, this earth had its beginning in the 1” chapter of Genesis, with six days of twenty four hours each. This would absolutely, if you believe this, cause you to come face to face with a wall you cannot see past, because all these bones that archaeologists and historians the world over are digging from the crust of the earth, even from mountain plateaus, fossilized findings of the dinosaurs, as well as many other things, dogmatically prove that there were prehistoric creatures on this planet long before the time God began to manifest the inhabitants we speak of from reading the first chapters of Genesis. They are hauling their findings away by the tons. Museums are full of it. Colleges have bought a lot of this suff to put together a concept that life started on this planet somewhere, by some big accidental explosion.

Though this gang teach that something just happened, to bring everything into being, we have in the Bible a six thousand year picture of our existence. This six thousand years, we are going to show you, is running precisely with the type that is established in Genesis, chapter 1.You may not understand it just now, but we have these pictures here, to try to show you, that if these types of cattle were to die, and their bones were to be found a million years from now, and this light breed over here, if they were to die and their bones be found a million years from now, and if the same kind of atheist and evolutionist were on the scene then, they would compare this carcass with that carcass and say, See here, this is proof that evolution is a fact. Yet because we live in the era that has produced all of these different breeds, we know exactly how they became what they are. At least those who know about the genetics of the livestock industry are knowledgeable of all of that.
HOW MUCH DO WE KNOW ABOUT THE BEGINNING?
civilization that had used them for many years as slaves, treated them like they were nothing, until they cried unto God and were heard. God heard their cry and raised up this man to deliver them. It was while he was leading them through the wilderness on their way to the promised land, that God began to inspire Moses to write a record of the various things we read about. When you think about the book of Genesis, the fact that the word Genesis is the title, indicates that it is the history of the genes.

I have no argument with that, but the point is, wherever in time it was, God was the author of it. GOD CREATED IT! First we have to understand that God is a sovereign Spirit that had no beginning and will have no end. He always was what He is. He is omniscient, meaning, He knows all things. He is omnipotent, meaning, all powerful, and omnipresent, meaning, He is everywhere all the time, and always has been. He does not live in time: Time exists in Him. He lives in the present, but do not think He does not remember everything that ever took place in the past. God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth (at the time God began to express certain things) was without form and void: and darkness was upon the face of the deep.” What does that tell us? That lets you and I know that from its prehistoric past, the earth was brought to such a state. Naturally there is no recorded history of any prehistoric period, or we could not refer to it as a prehistoric era: it just declares the fact that in the beginning God created the earth. To me, that is a FACT. At the point where Moses was to begin his record, bringing all of what we are familiar with into focus, the earth was without form and void. The word void, means,
After having made some remarks to alert your thinking, I believe we are ready to get back into the message, so let us go to Genesis and begin. The Bible says, “In the beginning.” Now that does not tell you when the beginning was. It does not say whether the beginning was six thousand years ago, or six billion years ago, or what, it just says, In the beginning. Who wrote these words? Moses wrote them. When? Thirteen hundred years before Christ. Under what conditions? Coming through the wilderness. He did not write them while he was growing up in Egypt: he wrote them while on the wilderness journey. The Bible says in the book of Hebrews, that Moses was a learned man in all the ways of the Egyptians, yet he was not an Egyptian. God chose him to be a leader, so he was leading the children of Israel out of a like that, yet they assume it all happened that way and teach it as a fact. The fact that they are hitting hard in the last sixty or seventy years, shows beyond the shadow of a any doubt that the devil is trying to rid from the mind’s of this present generation of young people, any trace of God as a Creator, and instill in their mind’s that there is no devil.

That lets you and I know that from its prehistoric past, the earth was brought to such a state. Naturally there is no recorded history of any prehistoric period, or we could not refer to it as a prehistoric era: it just declares the fact that in the beginning God created the earth. To me, that is a ‘ FACT. At the point where Moses was to begin his record, bringing all of what we are familiar with into focus, the earth was without form and void. The word void, means, rendered useless. I want you to understand, that at the very moment Moses was inspired to write these words, all those fossilized bones of the prehistoric past were lying in the ground all over the earth, from hundreds, or thousands, even millions of years before that. Only God knows how long. If man would have known then, to start digging in the surface of the earth, what a pile of bones he would have found after six thousand years of digging. Just look what the past fifty to seventy five years have produced. Well the fact that the earth was rendered void, lets us know that something happened here, and because of what we have learned from some of the discoveries of the past, we know it must have happened very suddenly. God did not create the planet, just because He was playing around in space: He had a definite plan. He had a purpose. It says, Darkness was upon the face of the deep, and I remind you once again, that the word deep, is not referring to a hole in the ground. It is referring to space. “And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” Scientists will agree that there was an Ice Age, eleven or twelve thousand years ago. They have no reason to deny that. There used to be a sign along Highway 31E, next to Jacobs Chapel Church, (1 think they moved it.) that said, This marks the spot where the glacier that slid over the North American Continent, came sliding through and dug the lakes, and it finally had melted and ceased to exist along that line. That does not mean it was a little hunk of ice just sliding over the state of Indiana. It meant there was a break away from the glacier north pole regions, that began to cause it to come in this direction. Let me say this, When we begin to realize that God brought the planet into existence in the eons past, and that it had a perfect climate then, we realize also, that he did not make it with a glacier on the polar regions. He did not need to, because according to the scientific findings that proved the evidence, the prehistoric earth in that ancient past had a perfect climate. As I mentioned earlier, Bro. Strommen said scientists in Norway found palm leaves frozen in the glacier ice caps in northern Norway. The Russian scientists found in the glacier regions of Siberia, a bison. The meat on his body was still intact: it was completely frozen. He had a cud of grass, getting ready to swallow it when his life ceased. All over the planet artifacts have been found that give us something to put into the picture that is constantly forming before us. Where we have the glacier regions, it has been shown that at one time, that part of the earth had palms and large ferns • growing, which gives you the picture that the earth had a perfect climate. We are just simply saying, that in the beginning, when He did create the earth, He created it with the thought that it would eventually cool down, and He would then put some kind of microscopic life on it, to begin the breakdown the solids and begin the forming of the soil, preparing the planet to eventually accept plant life. Plant life had to be on the planet first, before there could have been animal life, and we all know human life required it. That is just common sense. The animals were created, or manifested from God’s creation in due time, and whatever you want to call that creature that resembled man in the ancient past, (I call him just a serpent.) was there. If there was a serpent in our garden, he must have been a replica of the serpent from the prehistoric hour. Let me assure you of this one thing, None of the animals of our day pre-existed in that prehistoric hour, in the sense that they were just carried over from that hour to this hour. There are no traces of anything like that. Naturally some say there are, but you cannot really find anything to vindicate such a claim. All the creatures we have walking on and flying above the planet, God brought into existence after Genesis I : 1 , but I will say that many of our animals seem to be replicas of some of those of that prehistoric time. I believe that has been established by what has been discovered in the crust of the earth in our time, because, on every major continent of the globe, they have found traces of dinosaurs, huge animals of various descriptions, as well as multiple numbers of smaller creatures. God is the author of every bit of that, but rest assured that no animal creature evolved from that era to this one. Each creature was created by God with a specific purpose in mind, with a specific intelligence to fulfill what it was created for, and God let it go about doing what He designed it to do. I am going to say this though, When we look in Isaiah 14, the prophet Isaiah was looking at that spirit that motivated Lucifer, and saw that somewhere back there he existed as a righteous and perfect angel. When you look in Genesis, at the record of our beginning, Lucifer was not a perfect angel at that time, so we must reconcile that with the other things we find written by the prophets. We have to conclude that he had already been judged by God somewhere in the ancient, or prehistoric past. He is a spirit being existing in space, wandering here and there, always awaiting a time and opportunity to do something to get back at God. We are very specifically saying that somewhere in a prior time, Lucifer was a righteous angel, and was referred to as son of the morning, which means he was created at the dawning of time, and at that time he was created with power to rule, but never to exalt himself above his Creator. All the other angels were righteous also. You can read the entire thing in Ezekiel 28, and Isaiah 14. They were all perfect in the day they were created. Then Lucifer began to get a thought in his mind and eventually said, I will be like the Most High. In other words he thought, I will make myself a god. We mortals, if we read the history of mortal men today, how in the different kingdoms of this world mortals have assumed the role of rulership over others, you can almost visualize that same spirit duplicating what took place in the time Isaiah and Ezekiel wrote about. In the history of humanity, there have been many kings and dictators raise up in an hour of time, and exalt themselves to the point of always trying to be some kind of god over the people of their kingdom. Lucifer said, I will set myself on the sides of the north. I will be like the Most High. When he began to think like that, you can compare that with Ezekiel and learn what it resulted in. It says, Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. Iniquity is plain lawlessness, disobedience. Therefore the question is, What did this angelic creature do? First, the Bible says he caused a third of the angels to fall with him. All of that took place in the prehistoric era of time, before we get to Genesis 1:2, that tells what shape the earth was in at that time, the time prior to God beginning the process of bringing it out of its void state. What took place to bring about that void state is not even written in the Bible, but It is written in the crust of the earth. With these scriptures that point to that ancient past, and what has been discovered by those who dig in the soil .of the earth, it would behoove Christians to begin to read between the. lines, and read between the various findings. It should give you a picture, if your former traditions i will allow it. Something drastic took place as you see Jude speak of the angels that sinned. What did they do that constituted sin? They rebelled, then they did something, and they became guilty of iniquity, lawlessness, rebellion and instituting perversion. There is no doubt in my mind, that when they came to realized the power they had in the spirit realm, over the animals, they set in motion something that led to their downfall: Because of perversion, the animals began to turn into a cannibalistic creatures. I have said this, if the planet had started out with these little microscopic essences of life as the scientists want to say, and they would have been cannibalistic then, life would have never gotten started beyond that. That which was first would have destroyed its line without ever accomplishing its purpose. God, being the author of that type of life, created those little creatures to be peace loving. Everything God created was, up until the time perversion was introduced among them. The animals we have today, even though they are at odds with us, you find some of them now and then that still portray those instincts of a peaceful nature. That is why the Bible says in the Psalms, as well as in Isaiah, that the animals in our soon coming Millennium reign of Christ will be peaceful, and speaks of how a little child can lead them. That is what we have just ahead of us, but for now that animosity is still very much present.
WHY THOSE ANGELS WERE CAST DOWN
We have to ask the question, If Lucifer (now called Satan) and all those angels that fell with him were being tested back there in that era of time, what was their test? God gave them an animal kingdom to rule over, and gave them specific instructions as to what He expected, just like He did Adam in our Garden of Eden. Whatever they were guilty of, God let it go on long enough until from one end of this planet to another, on every major continent, they left an indelible trace of the conflict, the war, the cannibalism, that could have developed out of this Satanic takeover, that perverted everything God had set them in charge of. Only God Himself knows what all they were guilty of within their realm with that animal kingdom He had given into their charge. God let the perverted conditions go on long enough to give every angel his chance to be tested. When He had allowed all of that to go on until He saw that every angel He had begotten, and put in that era of time, had been allowed to make their choice as to whether they would go along with Lucifer’s plan or follow His original instructions, He called a halt to the whole thing, judging Lucifer and all the angels that sided with him along with the entire population they had perverted. When He did get ready to judge them, I can just imagine how it went: He said, Lucifer, come here! I can see Lucifer coming into the presence of his Creator, and I can hear God saying to him, Lucifer, what have you been doing? I dramatize it like this to get your attention, so just like we hear from the crooks and liars of our day, he said, Nothing! Jesus branded him in St. John 8:44, when He spoke of Satan as being the father of lies. He originated the first one. Where was he when he originated the first lie? If he was perfect in the original, that lets you know that as time came on, there had to be something in existence, in the material realm, that he that there referred to.
Because of his ability to cause it, in order for Jesus to brand him like that. Let me go back and refresh our memories as to the actual words of Jesus. “Ye arc of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father a murderer and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not..” When Jesus said he was a murderer from the beginning, that was pointing to his era of time: He was a murderer. It lets us know murder was introduced to the planet in that ancient animal kingdom, and because of what he did, many of those animals that were slain in judgment have laid in the crust of the earth for millions of years, leaving an indelible proof that Satan, which was Lucifer in that hour, had deceived, murdered and brought enough ruin to the planet that God had to judge it. As I have said before, I have been in the Museum of Natural Science in Washington D.C.: They have quite a display of things in the fossilized state. In one area, there is a glass case with quite a display. There is a petrified animal, not just the bones, but the entire body. It is about the size of a two thirds grown hog. The head and mouth is shaped more like an alligator or crocodile. It had caught a younger one, at least a smaller one of the same species. He was in the process of pulling the flesh off the shoulder, in order to devour it. It was petrified in that state. To me, that is indelible proof that what is there, is exactly the way God ordained it to be, that our generation might be able to know something took place to cause it. How come that creature is killing another of its own kind? The devil is the author of the killing. When you see in the origin of our era, how Cain slew Abel, and how men down ; through the ages have risen up and , become so cruel, just shoot an old man in cold blooded murder and laugh, you have to trace the origin of murder back beyond what we have written history of. That kind will knock a person down, beat him to death and laugh about it. That has to be an attribute of the devil. Yes, he is not only a liar, but he is a murderer also. Therefore we will establish the fact, that the prehistoric world was an era of time, which, even though there is no history written of it, Lucifer and all the other angels were set in charge of an animal population and something deviated from what God had commanded. It is of no importance, that these things are not written in a book, because God made sure there was enough of it written in the crust of the earth, with an indelible sign which we call fossils, and the pterfired forest, and the things of that nature that tell you and me they are here along, long ago, long before God placed Adam in the Garden of Eden. These Christian scientists that want to say, All those fossil bones came from the flood, had better take another look. I say to you brother and sister. Pay no attention anything is is so ridiculous. Do not allow yourselves to be that foolish. None of what we are talking about could have possibly been in the flood of Noah’s hour, because the animals that perished in Noah’s flood were all repented there in the boat. Common sense ought to tape up some people, without having so much other proof. I have said this, The flood took place about 4500 years ago. The sediment from the flood was not all that deep. How many understand me? Most of those animals died, perished and decayed, before the sediment had a chance to seal them up and cause them to become fossilized. The fossilized bones we find today are the record of the ancient past, a time when there was a kingdom of Lucifer and the angels made their animals that were very large. As choice, there is no doubt in my mind, that for a period of time they enjoyed the killing, the shedding of blood eyes do of all. Looking down upon all that story: He determined that it should be brought to an end. Not that He just i suddenly noticed it, He knew what was going on, but He had allotted a time for all of it, allowing for every angel to be tested and make his decision. Then when Lucifer was brought forth, along with the other angels, and they had to testify to the court of heaven and admit they had been doing wrong, first of all, God judged every living organism on the planet. That is when I have to believe this planet went into some kind of convulsions that rocked it away from its relationship to the sun, (which was always out there) and the entire planet froze up. It stayed frozen for a very long time. The ice glacier did not form all at once, but as the temperature kept dropping, dropping, dropping, all the water that was on this planet began to freeze. Of course there were some places where it did not bring about instant death, but in many places it did. Most of the animals were warm blooded creatures, so as the cold kept creeping down, finally the animals could not survive. They all died. Some of them froze so suddenly, that they were stopped right in the act of whatever they were doing. (We have already explained some of that.) During that long period that the planet hung out there in darkness and void, with no life left on it, all the waters began to vaporize and create a great fog. Some people will ask, Why do you explain it like that? Watch some of those TV shows where they are shown flying over the polar regions and you will understand. Many planes fly over the polar regions, and those pilots could tell us a thing or two. It is not because there are actual clouds, that a certain effect occurs: it is because the temperature of the air up there is causing this ice to cast off a fog, and they are unable to see the glacier caps. At other times they can see them. Now I ask you, If that happens over our polar regions, what do you think would happen when all the moisture there is on the planet and around the planet, begins to slowly freeze up. That is what happened, to cause the effect spoken of in Genesis 1:2.
DARKNESS AND WITHOUT FORM
There was no life that survived the condition this planet was in at that time. God left it hang like that for eons of eras of time; as an indelible witness of His sovereign power. He had judged the angels that were guilty of iniquity, and He had destroyed that whole animal kingdom and made sure no mortal life survived. That is the way the record goes; and we have many scriptures and fossils to verify it. We cannot overlook 2″ Peter and the little book of Jude: where it is written, speaking of angels that sinned, how God has cast them down into hell and they are chained in darkness, waiting that day of their final judgment. That is the judgment of the great white throne, the final judgment of everything that has made wrong choices. Those scriptures tell me that those angels, those particular ones, did something so perverted, so diabolical, God said, I will never let you loose to have any effect on this planet again. Yet Lucifer and others, He has allowed to go about harassing the people of God. They are out here in the atmosphere around the planet. We do not know how long it was from the time judgement struck the planet, to the time when God began to again conditions it to be inhabit again, but we do know it could not have been a sudden thing.
A FEW THINGS TO THINK UPON
Let us just take a look at the life that eventually did evolve through time, as we stress the fact that it was through God’s created way. I have said this, as I have read from different articles about breeding, There is no doubt in my mind, knowing that it took centuries upon centuries of time for the earth to eventually become climatically acceptable for plant life, which includes trees as well as herbal life, so that it could be sustained, all of that preparation had to be completed first. If animal life was to live off the seeds of the herbs, then there is other types of animal life that will live off the fruit of vines and trees, so you would have to have a certain type of climate to give it the environment it needed. Then as God began to bring on the intelligent forms of animals, regardless of whether it was a worm crawling, or whether it was a four legged creature the size of a rabbit, or whatever, God was the author of that individual life. It did not evolve from something else. There is no such thing as a rabbit evolving from a worm, and a quail evolving from a rabbit. It would take a mind all twisted up, to start that type of foolishness. There is no such thing as that type of evolution, which would have all life starting from one little cell. Where did that little cell come from? I have read this in the Christian scientists’ writings. They said, Where did that little cell come from? Well, some of you smart people, Come on and tell us where it came from? You will never get an answer to that question. My point is, The devil has a bunch of people right here at the end time, completely brainwashed and ready to do his dirty work. That is why the devil, which was Lucifer before he was cast down, wanted to use our animal creature called the serpent, in our garden of beginning, to open a pathway of genetic disruptions. We call it the seed of the serpent, that which came forth from that genetic disruption. Not the seed of the prehistoric man, but the seed of the serpent. That creature they refer to as prehistoric man perished in the Ice Age. I have a National Geographic magazine that shows skulls of the Neanderthal man. I will say this, Regardless of what cave you found his skull in, or what you think of his weapon, he had no descendants that carried over into this era. There is no doubt he was a creature that had genetically changed somewhat through the time they remained on earth: That is easily explained by what we see now, this many years after the flood of Noah’s hour. Listen carefully how I say this, He was genetically changed from the type of creature called man, that lived a thousand or thousands of years before his hour. We are going to prove it by something your are more familiar with as we continue on. God the Creator has the power to put within the genes certain basic laws and that is exactly what He did. Those laws always work in unison to assure that kind begets kind. Yet and kind of creature, over a period of time, can grow and take on a larger physical likeness. I am going to use this brother here, as an example. I have been in Ghana Africa. I preached in a school there. In the corner of the school room, was a big block where the slave traders came and traded for the black slaves that were brought to the new world from that part of Africa, from Ghana, the Ivory Coast and Monrovia. The black man there is of smaller stature. Bro. Hester over here, if he were over there now, would see for himself what I am showing you. He is much larger in physique than they are. Why? It is the environment, the temperature,and also the type food they have for Intake. It establishes and cultivates a genetic law. Over centuries of time, the Creator ordained each species to adapt to its environment. It will eventually produce offspring that can cope with that environment. How many black men do we have in the states that are seven foot one, seven foot two, four and six? Though they came from the same place, they did not all live in the same area in this country, and they did not remain as their ancestors were. Do you agree with me? Is that evolution? No. The Creator ordained it, so that our environment brings about a change. Therefore God, in the ancient past, could have set laws in the genetic structure of that prehistoric world, so that through the eons of time, as temperature, as well as general environment got better, and the creatures became more numerous in populating the planet, wherever they would eventually settle, they are definitely going to be faced with different types of things as their intake of what would be their ability to sustain life. Some of these things these scientists use as heads, trying to prove their theory of evolution, are nothing more than ancient apes. They never were human. We are , finding that out now, after some of 1 the scientists have been made to (. admit it. During the time of WW2, 1 read in some magazine that the average soldier of WW I was one inch taller than the average knight of the Middle Ages. What caused that? Is that evolution? In WW2, (the average American soldier, black and white, was two inches taller I than the medieval knight. What does that tell you? How do you explain that? Is that evolution? No. It is environmental differences reflected, what his physique is subjected to, the type of food he intakes, his work conditions, and his habitat. Now we are fifty years past WW2; and just take a look at the basketball teams in this day and hour. If I were in charge, I would ; raise that hoop up a litter higher than it is. This thing of these giants I just running up there and dropping I the ball through it is not fair for those who are not quite so tall. When I was going to school, if we had a six foot boy, he was considered a tall one, but today they i are six foot seven and taller, yet they leave the basket in the same I place. Does that make sense? Well I am not into sports: I am just making a point. We can prove in the new world alone, that practically every genetic race that ever found its way into the new world, and representatives of that race that have stayed here to live, to work . and enjoy the intake and environment, we have produced the bone structure of a people that are much larger than the original ancestor that came here. If that can work like that now, when you are dealing with just a short number of decades, what do you think of the ancient past, when you are dealing with thousands and thousands of years? Do you see the comparison? Then when you look at sonic of the animals of our day, like the Brahma cows for instance, and notice what a neck they have, there was a time when the earth did not have that type of animal walking on its soil. You have to realize though, that the gene that would eventually show itself and bring forth that type was somewhere in the loins of the pair Noah had on the ark. You have the same situation with these dairy cows of our day. They are light boned in structure. Look at some of the old pioneer paintings of the 16th and 17th centuries, when the pioneers came to the new world, and when the wagon trains started across the west. Notice what type of cows they had, to furnish their milk. Right here, is a picture of a little light bodied, light boned creatures. We had not entered yet into the dairy business. My point is, that after all these years, just look at all the different bone structures in cattle. These that I am pointing to are all male cows, and they have all been bred to establish a certain bone structure, as well as color. They all have their personality. Some have been bred to exist and flourish in cold climates, while others are more suited to hot climates. I have to say, Some of that is because man has learned how to manipulate the genes, and because God established a law in the genes. That is why the history of the genes is the book we look at. I also have a book on all the various breeds of horses. I have other books at home, from which I have gained a pretty good understanding of these things and I never bought any of them: They have all been given to me. Let me read a little sketch from one of them, about a particular horse we have in America. He is called a mutated horse. When the new world was discovered, there came pioneers from Europe, so when the Spaniards came into the southwest, they brought with them descendants of a particular Spanish barb, crossed with a Mideast Arabian. This is the Dictionary definition of that type of horse ( barb if barb) n. 1. A horse of a breed introduced by the Moors into Spain from northern Africa that resembles the Arabians and is known for its speed and endurance.) In ancient Greece, they had a horse called the Appaloosa. They were called by the Greeks, the sacred horse. Most all of them were light bodied. Many of them got loose and went wild. That is what started the wild herds out west. In the eastern colonies, there were the British Thoroughbred and the European saddle horse. These were well known horses of the European structure. Some of them were developed out of the Arabian line. Then in the 1800’s, when they started trying to improve the American Standard bred, which was a trotting horse small in bone structure, they were introduced to a very special horse called The Morgan.On horseback, was the way man traveled in those days, so horse breeders were always trying to breed and improve his type of riding and pulling horses, which was his mechanical means of going somewhere. Well, there was a New England school teacher by the name of Justin Morgan: He had a horse that was born on his farm, a horse that was only 14 hands tall. That is small compared to many other, but he out-trotted any other horse he was thrown against, and as they watched this horse work, he out-pulled every horse in his class. They could plow him all day, use him in the woods dragging logs, then hitch him to a buggy and he still out-ran everything around. He became a very famous horse, yet his parental background was Thoroughbred, and possibly Arabian mixed in. It just goes to show, He who made our first pair of horses and gave them to Adam and Eve, just created a male and female horse. You cannot call them American Standard bred, Morgan, Quarter, or any such: They were just horses. One thing is sure though, He who created all things, put in those horses a genetic means to carry attributes. Those attributes lay in the chromosomes. When the Creator wanted another type of horse for man on earth to use, a particular type of animal, for a particular task, God just caused that animal to drop that particular seed to produce such a horse. All of a sudden, here is a stallion, and here is another. They each begat their kind, except in those certain times. When those certain times came, here we find one little horse born that does not act like daddy, nor mommy. Time passes, and he gets to be very large, passing up mommy and daddy. He is unusual, with none other like him. Well saints, that was no accident: God is the architect. He knows what He is doing all the time. Listen to what this writer says about this horse as we go on.
“He was a little bay horse that had remarkable speed as a trotter, vast strength and weight pulling for farm work, and the gait of a holiday parade horse. (They noticed when he was hitched to a buggy, up came those front feet. It was in his nature to parade down the street that way.) This little horse (Justin Morgan is what they named him,) lived 28 years, founded a useful breed of light horses and remains the only horse to give his name to a separate breed.”
They have infused his bloodline into larger type horses, and when they did, in the larger bodied horses, they still carried that same type of disposition. That is the reason, when you go to some states, and go around a park where you see certain types of horses pulling carriages, you may see those front feet going like this, as parade horses do. It all goes back to that first one, and then to what man has designed by certain breeding techniques. I say that to illustrate the foolishness of anyone thinking life started somewhere, out of nothing, yet had sense enough somewhere down the line to produce a frog, and later produce a fish, then go so long and produce a whale, and then it decides it does not want to swim any more so it grows legs in order to walk on land. What kind of brain could believe something like that? We are talking about mammals, so he loses the fins and sprouts feet. That is the way scientists, and evolutionists put this thing out to gullible people who are as blind and deceived as they are, but like one of the Christian scientists says, Show me the evidence where a fish has sprouted fins, and then lost them, and now it has feet. The minute he has feet, be gets up out of the water and starts walking on land. What a story! Do you want to tell your children something like that at bedtime? Is that a bedtime story to tell your children? It might be for some of those educated brains, but I have to say, What a pitiful picture! I used this one illustration to show what man has been able to do by his own knowledge of what is involved in breeding. By studying the genetics of different animals, man has been able to develop various breeds of his choosing, which proves beyond the shadow of any doubt, that behind all of this genetic manipulation, when you go back to the prehistoric hour, you realize there had to be a source of intelligence involved in what took place back there. Those angels that sided with Lucifer had something in mind when they began to go contrary to God’s commission.
Nothing happened just by chance. That is why I do not hesitate to say the planet earth is not the product of an explosion apart from what the Creator designed. If it was an explosion that set the plan in motion, I have no pick with that: because I know this, If there was an explosion, then our God, the greatest scientist of all scientists was behind it. He is the great Chemist, so He designed it that way. As I said earlier in the message, Creation itself proves that through each basic particle, the atom, the proton, the neutron and electron, all of which God Created, we have understanding. When we, come to matter, it is carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen we think of. When you come on up the line in the study of creation, what kind of life do we have existing on the planet? We have plant life, marine life, and animal life. God is the author of all three. With that in mind then, I am just going to ask a simple question, How many understand now what we mean by mutation? If God chooses to, and He has a reason for wanting a new breed of cows, horses or whatever, He sees that genetic flow coming down through each generation, so He can cause the male and female to mate and from that union an offspring come forth that might not be the color of either one of them. It does not go back to the parents: It is simply a case of mutation. We have to say though, There is a super intelligence behind it. That reminds me of a proverbial saying that old timers used to use when they were talking about a child growing up: It was just simply, Like father, like son, and in a lot of cases it applies, but we know now, that it does not always work like that. Another saying used real often when someone was expected to do something extraordinary, was, If the daddy horse trots ant the mother horse trots, how do you expect the colt to pace? In other words, when you are wanting the child to be different, normally it is according to nature for them to carry the same traits as their parents, but if there is one born that does not carry the traits of daddy and mommy, then we can say it is because God is the architect of all creation and knows exactly what He is doing when something is different than what we expect. Of course I am speaking in general terms, not allowing for what some people do that changes things from their normal flow. All of our animal kingdom here on this present earth, came from the animals that were in Noah’s boat. ‘ They were not in there because they had certain colors and Noah had to save certain colors. He had to save a good pair of cows, a good pair of horses and everything alive, and after the flood the animal kingdom, everything about it was guarded and governed by a law the Creator had put in effect, except where man began to use his knowledge to alter the natural process. God’s law was for everything to bring forth of its own kind and repopulate the earth. Well, as man went about his way throughout the planet, to populate it and build his environment, out of that we have produced our present, modern age of animals and humanity. It all goes to show that there is a law set forth by the Creator, that established the genetic flow in our offspring.
MAN’S WISDOM CAN GO ONLY WHERE GOD ALLOWS IT TO GO
There are many interesting things to observe, as you study the pictures we have up here, (not that we are majoring on the study of these things) but the thing that really stands out, is the bone size and structure of animals that have been developed in the last two hundred years. Man’s wisdom accounts for part of the difference, but an awful lot of their differences have been brought about by the environment they have been exposed to, like climate, what they have been fed and so forth. In this book I referred to, you will even see the miniature horses. They are little creatures, some of which do not stand any taller than a dog. You do not call them ponies: they are very simply called miniature horses. There are other larger ones that are called ponies. Some are solid colors, and others are spotted. When you come on up the line to the average size horse, you will find that they stand about 16 hands tall. From there, we look at the big draft horses. It shows all these pictures here in this book. There was nothing like them in Noah’s boat, but they have been widely used in this century, because man discovered how to obtain them. All of that proves that the original two horses God gave to Adam had lying in their genetic structure along with the law of reproduction, a law that would manifest itself down through time and bring forth an offspring with a different makeup. That did not mean under normal circumstances, that a mare is going to one time give birth to a miniature horse and another time give birth to another kind. No. Normally the law is she will give birth to one that will eventually be close to her own size, have her likeness and so forth, that is of course between her and her mate, and not just her. All of that depends a great deal upon whether they remain in the same environment. When the wild herds began to grow in the west and became lost in canyons, that is where they began to find those little creatures. All of it goes back to inbreeding. Inbreeding has a law within it, that causes it to begin to divert to something smaller. It just keeps getting smaller from generation to generation. When they do that, then after a while that little offspring has developed the ability to produce its kind, depending upon its environment. If it is constantly subjected to having to mate with something that is closely related, constantly inbreeding, the breed will continue downward to a smaller size. That is an undeniable law. Animals breeders can take that IS and go the other way with it because of what they know to do. That is how they got the Clydesdale, and all those giant breeds that carried the knights during the Middle Ages. That is why, in their parents back in the Garden was every gene that would ever produce horses, whether spotted, or Palomino, bay, black, or whatever. It all lay there in the genes of that first pair. I have said all of this, hoping to establish for you, that evolution is just a crazy man’s myth. It is an unprovable theory. I have a story from a magazine, where a fourteen year old boy, in the state of Colorado, challenged the theory of evolution, after watching a video on TV one night. He shook the the school boards of entire state, by his ability to speak intelligently against it. I do not have time to go into all of it, but I really enjoyed reading it: I just read another section this morning. I wish we had some 14, 15, and 16 year old boys today, that would rise up and be smart enough to look at that bunch and challenge their crazy ideas. He challenged the school board; and everything they would say, he would counterattack it. I just have to say, from the standpoint of what we are dealing with, There, is one mutated boy. His parents kicked off one that had more brains than what they themselves had, or at least he used his intelligence in a way that I admire. Of course we surely realize his parents must have encouraged him. Just think though, when a fourteen year old boy is willing and able to take on a school board, he has to have something in him that is a cut above the norm. I pray that God will bring on more of his kind. In the light of what we have dealt with, we should realize by now that it was not a case of evolution messing up things back there in the prehistoric era: It was a case of some of the angels perverting what God had created. The Creator had established the law of reproduction long before He ever created any of them. Let me say again, God knew what was going on all the time, but He had to allow it to reach its full state of corruption, and the point where every angel had sealed his choice in testing before He judged it. God does not have to explain every detail of what has taken place, to the point where any carnal mind could understand, in order for His true children to understand the picture. I can see why some of those angels were chained down, to await their final judgment: Just suppose they were loose today, able to go about and do as they please, What do you think they would have been doing for the last so many thousands of years? Only God Himself knows the kind of chaos they would have been responsible for. By examining certain scriptures, we have seen what they did when they were loose on earth and in control, so let us go a little further in Genesis, keeping all of this in mind. God is taking a look at the same planet He has created and later judged, when we come to Genesis 1:1-2, because it says, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. ‘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.” The Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. Think about that: What does that mean, On the face of the waters? It did not necessarily mean, on the face of the planet: God saw the waters, the shape they were in at that time, so that they were causing darkness upon the entire planet. Therefore we can ask the question, At that time, when the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters, what did He have in mind? What is about to take place? He sets a beautiful type here, because the planet He has created, and then judged somewhere back there in the eons past, He is now going to start pulling it out of that judged state of darkness and reestablish it. To do so would require much time, so that it would not be something done in a day of twenty four hours. It was going to be something He would do by a gradual process, because He is bringing it out of that glacier age where everything was completely frozen up and reestablishing it for future repopulation. It means He has got to move upon this very substance that is causing the earth to be in such a terrible condition. So watch as we read, “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.” You have Christians everywhere saying, That has to be a twenty four hour day. It absolutely could not have been a twenty four hour day, especially at that time, because we only measure days and nights when we have the sun and moon, and they were not revealed until the fourth creative day. He put them up there so that upon the earth in relationship to them, days and nights and seasons and times and so forth could be measured. Therefore if they were not even brought into the picture until on the fourth creative day, what was the determining factor you would go by prior to that time? When the Bible specifically says the sun and moon were for the regulating of time into its present cycles, if you are a believer of what is written as the word of God, how can you bypass that? You just have to realize that the evening in this case is pointing to the dark side of the object being dealt with, and the morning speaks of the light side of what God is dealing with, which was the planet earth in its judged state. God always starts with something in a dark, gloomy, deteriorated condition and changes the picture. Do you follow my illustration? He does not start with it when it looks beautiful and work on it and make it worse. He dots not improve on something He has already made beautiful: He improves on
something when it is in a negative state of being. That is what you arc going to see in these creative days. In fact, if the planet earth was already here, then these days are not the initial creating of any of that at all. It is just a case of God regenerating, and recycling the earth, bringing it into a relationship where He is going to use it again, and this time He was going to put sons of God on it, and definitely not descendants of the Neanderthal man (as they call that thing). Yes Saints, these creative days involve centuries as we count time, because the evening and morning terminology here, pertains to something altogether different than what our evening and morning pertain to. God’s i beginning of this, was when it was in a negative state. Then the morning term pertains to when He sees it in the end, or finished state. God saw that this water that was causing a void appearance had to be removed. He had to part those waters, and then gather them where He wanted them, so that they were not dominating the atmosphere. He was justifying the planet, getting ready to use it again. That is just like you and me, when He looks at us: We are sons of God because of creation, but you and I both know we did not have eternal life within us. We were in a darkened, fallen state until the light of eternal life strikes our life. Is that not right? Take a look at society today. Modern man that has lost his way, born to think like devil, is really a slave to the devil. I read from one scientist I mentioned earlier, as he expressed his disgust with the theory of evolution, how he really thinks and believes now. His thought is this, If we are evolved species, then why do we have to have laws? Why are we not just left to fulfill our nature. Who is this that makes laws? Who are they designed to govern? Do we make laws to govern the cannibal, animal line in Africa? Think about it. Can you force him to stop chasing an antelope? What makes man want to devise laws to control each other, if we are only evolved species just passing through a stage? That scientist says, All of this proves the fact that man was created by an intelligence, and in which was instilled the need that he respect his fellow man, and that he should love his fellow beings. Man was created in the image and likeness of his Creator, but just look what the devil has done with that man’s offspring: The devil has perverted mankind to the point that many are more like animal creatures. That scientist also said, if we are only a species of evolution, why all the fuss? just let each species go ahead and do as his kind does. Let him enjoy doing what he does, and let us just watch and see if evolution can prove itself. Naturally I am sure of this, that these atheists would not want anyone coming along and shooting them down, killing them like killing flies, but it could be said, Well I evolved to this point to do that very thing. I like killing people. Are you following the thought? Political and educational leaders want to create a society that does not know a thing about God, but to do that they have to go to the opposite side of the picture, because there is no such thing as a middle of the road stand between creation and evolution. That is why I have said, All this killing is only going from one extreme to another. They will not admit that man is born a sinner, that he is born in sin, he is in darkness, and the only thing that will ever change him is for God to speak light to his soul. That means He wakes up to the fact and acknowledges, I am a sinner: I need God for salvation. Then, and only then is God speaking light to that person’s soul. We call that justification. Therefore when God was bringing the planet out of darkness into a relationship with Him, He was justifying it. He knew He was going to use it for another purpose. If that is understood, we can say this, That first creative day was more like one thousand years than just twenty four hours. It was a day that measured in time at least more like a thousand years. The first thing He had to deal with was the waters, the mist, the fog. “And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven.” When all those waters began to separate, God did the dividing, which meant that so much of the mist and fog was just pushed way out there in space. He was once again going to return to this planet in the ultimate future a perfect climate. I believe we everyone realize that by now. The rest of the fog and mist He just let it condense and gather into lakes and streams. The earth, before our flood, was not two thirds covered with water. God’s Spirit was dividing all of that mist of darkness into something that would ultimately bring about a perfect climate throughout. He did not have to hurry: He had thousands of years of time, the way we measure time, to bring His ultimate plan to fruition. That is why, when the Bible say, And the evening and the morning was the second day, the third day and so forth, it was not referring to a day of twenty four hours. First He moved on the waters, then He divided the waters. We will say this, The Spirit of God took many thousands of years to bring everything into position for habitation by the man and his help mates. “And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.” Now we can say this, When He was gathering the waters under the firmament, He was gathering them together for use on the planet, and the dry land and the waters begin to become compatible. This was not done in twenty four hours. This covers a lengthy process of time. Can you follow the thought? This is not the initial creating of the planet: It is God’s way of re-creating, regenerating the planet, the air, and everything around it for the future use He had designed it for. You may wonder why we would place so much emphasis on the length of the creative days, as we call them, so I will say to you, If you get your former, traditional ideas out of your thinking, it will enable you to better reconcile much of what is being unearthed by our archaeologists of this century. We can prove by the ancient writings, the writings of the anti-Nicene fathers and early Christian writers from back in the early apostolic hour as well as others in the first hundred or two hundred years afterward, that those creative days were declared to be days of probably a thousand years each. They all emphasize the fact that they were not days of twenty four hours each. You have got to have the sun and moon in order to relegate time into twenty four hour periods. Then they jump ahead to the time that Adam was put on the earth. Let me show you a stage, and God sets a type by it. This is the earth coming out of darkness. (pointing to the balls drawn on the chart) Stage one, two, three, four, five, and six. We know this, that on the sixth day, God made the animal kingdom first and then He made man. These circles (chart) represent them. Man was created on the sixth creative day, but watch, If this was a thousand years long, and this one, and that one, that era of time was also a thousand years. Do you catch the point? Then God rested on the seventh day, so we come to this stage. If this is where God rested on the seventh day, and each day is a thousand years, and not just a period of twenty four hours, I want to show you something. This is what causes a lot of these modern religionists today to get all fouled up. On the sixth day, though man was created, that is, spoken into existence, and God then rested on the Sabbath, there was not yet one crawling species on this earth. Listen to me. There were no worms wiggling along at that time, and there were no rabbits hopping around. When God rested, did that mean He got tired? That set a type right there, that when the time does come that He puts man here on earth, there will be six thousand years allotted that man will labor and toil. Then, just as you have a Sabbath in a week of seven days, God will also establish a Sabbath, or a Millennium, after six thousand years that will be the day of rest to the groaning of all creation, spoken of in Romans 8. When God creates, when God redeems, and when God reconciles, watch Him: He does it in stages. He sets types. That is why He does not give the wise and prudent of this world a pile of books to read, books explaining every detail. Do you understand me? He does it many times, through types, and not many of the wise and prudent of the world ever get the entire picture together properly.
GOD’S ORDER OF CREATION
A lot of people read the first chapter of Genesis and say, Yes, the man was definitely created after the animal kingdom on the sixth day of creation, but then, when they go to chapter two, they get all confused, because man is upon the earth before the animal kingdom is brought forth, so I ask you, What is the answer? If man was created here and the animal kingdom first and man last, where was he when God rested? Think about it. He was not here yet; when God rested. When you go to Genesis 2, and see where it says, “Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. ‘And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had made; and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had made. ‘And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it He had rested from all His work which God created and made. ‘These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens, 5And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground. ‘But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground. ‘And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul,” I have to ask you, What day was it when God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life? It is this day (pointing to eighth ball on chart), which would be the eighth day. So then what did God do? Out of the dust of the earth God formed man of clay. Then that man He had created in the spirit, in His image and likeness, He then put him in that vessel of clay. Now that spirit has a physical body, but not until the eighth day, after He had rested through the seventh day? Do you get the point? He put him on this earth, and there was still none of the animals present. Watch. Then it plainly tells you, God planted a garden. Where did He do this? Eastward in Eden. At that time, when God created the garden, He did not create a place with a wrought iron fence around it. What was around it, and in it was the presence of the very Creator Himself. What was referred to as a garden was a place where God placed a heavenly presence, so the man He had created could have access to both the spirit world as well as the literal earth he was placed in charge of. After His Sabbath of rest is over, the planet earth that He has already been dealing with through these other stages, has now become warm enough for plant life and vegetation to begin to function and flourish, so the Creator then set about to finish what He had started. All of these other things had to be in place first, before He could put the man here in a physical body. The physical man was going to have to eat something. Maybe this sounds a little over your head, but it really is not, if you will just think seriously about what has been said. God was setting types here, with all of this. I did not realize all of this until I delved into some of the apostolic fathers’ writings; then I thought to myself, Where has the Christian Church been all these past centuries? Ireaneus and Polycarp were two sources, so I ask you, Do you think those men were crazy, talking like this? No. Not at all. I will tell you why we are so vague, and so void of the truth: It is because we are almost two thousand years beyond them, and between the beginning and the end, we have had a long period when the Catholic Church ditched almost all of the writings that would have explained these things more thoroughly. We have just read the Bible like Sunday school literature, not really thinking much about whether those creative days were twenty four hours or what. We have lived so long with those seven days being presented as days of twenty four hours each, it just became an accepted tradition, instead of fact . God does everything in perfection. When He redeems something, He does things in a perfect way. I do not mean to wear you out, but I want anyone hearing this, that may not be back for the rest of the message, to go home with a thought in their mind’s, and not just accept the usual teachings that these are six or seven days of twenty four hours each. It is better understood by how God has set certain laws to accomplish certain things in relationship to the earth, and also to the air, and to the heavens and such like, because, when He rested on the seventh day, the earth was still in the process of being gradually warmed up, and by the time He was finished resting, the earth had reached a state that plant life could flourish. When a certain critic said to Bro. Branham, Don’t tell me you believe in that crazy, fanatical story that God made the heavens and earth in six twenty four hour days, Bro. Branham answered, That has nothing to do with this: (You can find his answer in the Seals book.) I believe that God, in the beginning, created all things, period, and that those seeds were laying there from some other creation. When God spoke the word and light struck it, it began to warm up, and then creation began to respond. When He was resting, the earth was not resting: it was still being affected by the word God had spoken before He entered into His rest. Plant life was growing by the time His rest was over. Of course some would say, Bro. Jackson, would the germ of life still be in things like that, after that long? I have been in a Museum in Egypt: and in the museum, in a glass container, they show you kernels of wheat that were taken out of one of the ancient pyramids that was more than three thousand years old. A biologist from California asked for some of this seed so they could test it for germination. They brought it to the states, and then reported that the seed still grew. Nothing gets too old with God. Do you follow my thought? Right here now, (pointing to chart) when the Sabbath was over for the Lord, He went to work again and He has been working every day since then. What has He been doing? Working with you and me. I am glad He has not turned His back on things yet. Pay attention now, as we try to help you understand the terminology used here. He provided a little bit of heaven on that spot of earth where vegetation was already growing out of the ground. Then He took the man He had already formed and said, Here is your home. When Adam walked into that beautiful place, what a lovely spot it was, but now we will let the Bible talk. (Gen. 2:8) “And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there He put the man whom He had formed. ‘And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. 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.” God spoke to him of the two trees in the MIDST of the garden, but I assure you, Those two trees were not growing out of the ground, like the other trees. They were actually two laws in effect there in the midst of this paradise, this little bit of heaven. Do you know what He said to him about the trees? I want you to know this, that at that time there was not an animal of any kind walking around, but Adam was placed there in the garden. Now what did God say about Adam?. (2:18) “And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.” God said, I will make him an help mate. Then what did He do? He began to bring forth animals, from the ground; and here came the cow, a horse, a dog and so on. Bro Jackson: I thought they were already here. They were not here in physical flesh: They had only been spoken into existence, but at that point they were only in the mind of God as a finished thing to be accomplished yet in the physical part. One by one, out of the ground they came. They had already received certain genetic laws, so that when the spirit entered into the bodies they were ready to start fulfilling their purpose on earth, so He brought them to Adam there in the garden and Adam named them. Here they were, created first and Adam last, but they are put in the earth after Adam. Why? Because He (Adam) was the beginning of the creation of God for this present creation, if you see the picture correctly. As I searched the writings of those early generations, one writer says this, On this day, being the eighth day, yet it is the first day of starting the next cycle, the fact that Adam was there, he was created in the beginning of that thousand years, and he lived almost a thousand years, but he took of that tree that he was not supposed to partake of, and he died before the day closed out. What had God said to him? (2:17) “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.” In THE DAY that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. Do you see why we have to believe that God was speaking of one thousand years, when He spoke of a day in those chapters of Genesis? Think of it. That writer goes ahead and says, As Adam was placed in the earth on the eighth day, Jesus Christ, which is the second Adam, was preached in the New Testament by the apostles as the beginning of the creation of God. He was not the creation of God over here, (pointing to chart back at the beginning of Adam) He is the creation of God in this age of time, because He was the beginning of the new creation of God, the redeemed and resurrected. Jesus Christ is the re-generator, if you understand what I mean. That is why this is going to tear the Seventh Day Adventist teachings all to pieces. If Adam was put here on the eighth day as the beginning of that creation, that sets a type for the next, so Jesus Christ was absolutely to be raised on the eighth day, which in both cases, the eighth day, as you look at our calendar, was the first day of the week. It just goes to show, that when we get over here in the eighth day, which is your eternal kingdom, Our Millennium the seventh day, is over with. When that Millennium is over, and when the final judgment is finished, that is when God says, Come here. That is my words of expression, but when you go to Revelation 21:1, John says this, “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God.” John did not see a bunch of blocks and stone descending from heaven: Naturally it would look to the human mind like that, but this is a picture of the anointing of God, that Supreme being which has no form or shape because He is an invisible Spirit, once again causing His anointing presence to settle down here in the earth, and this is the beginning of the creation all over again, but this time it is forever, time without end. It is the eighth day, and shall be an eternal day. That is why Jesus Christ is the beginning of the new creation of God. Not because He is creating atoms again, but because He is redeeming and reconciling, renewing and re-generating something out of a previous state of a judged creation. It is all typed; and I never realized how completely it was typed until I got into some of the writings of those old writers of the ancient past. I thought to myself, If these men knew things like that back then, where did this knowledge disappear to? No wonder we have atheists. No wonder we have evolutionists. The dirty devil did not want the truth to be circulated among the human race. Re wanted to leave us a bunch of morons that would do their best to lead us to destruction. Thank God we are delivered from that state of ignorance. Hallelujah! I love Him.
EXPLAINING THE CREATIVE CYCLE
I realize that when I touched on these creative days, it no doubt put a question is some mind’s because you just simply cannot cover every point all the time. May God help me now, to go back and clarify some of the questioned points. I just pray that I can say some things that will make all of this become a clear
picture in your mind’s. If you could only see what certain (so called Christian scientists) have said about these creative days, how that they are days of twenty four hours, and totally denies that the planet ever existed prior to Adam’s time, and cannot accept the fact that there was a prehistoric era of this planet, you would see why I have to shake my head at it and say, That is outright ignorance! Yet when I look at some writings that go back to the first, second, and third centuries of Christendom, and see that most of those writers had a feeling that those creative days were not days of twenty four hours, it just settles it for me. As one writer said, How can you make the evening and the morning the second day, when you do not yet have the sun and moon in relationship to constitute the hour cycle? So the evening and morning that was spoken of, is not pertaining to the sun and moon relationship at all. The writer said, That comes on the fourth creative day. So I say, How can you take this, and go back here, when the first verse of Genesis says, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth, and the second verse says, (2) And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep? How did it get in that shape? Common sense will tell you, you would have to have something in existence to render it void. 1 just cannot reach out in the air and make something void that has not even materialized. Let us just let the words that are written speak to us, how they are written, and the thought they convey. The first two verses declare to you and me that there was an era of time which you will not find fully explained anywhere in the Bible, and we do not need to argue about it. Only fools would debate and argue about something that is so completely declared in other ways. To deny the fact that the planet had already been here for millions of years prior to Adam’s time, is to close your eyes and walk off in the darkness of almost total ignorance, just like a lot of these so-called Christian scientists have done. They speak of hocus pocus concerning all the fossils that have been uncovered, as though they all belonged to the era of Noah’s flood. That is a cheap excuse for denying something you are afraid to examine in the light of truth. You can go to museums and look at giant tusks that came out of the mouth’s of elephants’ heads, tusks that far exceed those of any elephant that lives in our era of time. I have to say, We are a peculiar people, here in the endtime, because we are willing to allow the Spirit of God to teach us something. We are here, learning from Him, when the man -of the world is crying, We need more education. Let them get their education: I am not against it, but those who deny that there is a sovereign God in control of their final destiny are going to be turned into complete fools, because what they are getting is all they want to know. You can have your wall plastered with diplomas, and have masters degrees in every subject, but if you live your entire life never knowing God, you will be like the farmer in the New Testament that said, My barns are full, the harvest is plentiful. Jesus used this parable to show the vainness of caring only for material things. Notice as we read these four verses in Luke 12. (17) “And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits? 18 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. 20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?” Modern man today, is not looking into the future to find out if there is a God or not: His god has become the material world he is living in and his own wealth. As we see many other things developing in the world about us, things that are indicating factors, it becomes very clear that everything the Bible says will be in the last days are here already. We are looking right at all the signs. I just never realized that some of those ancient writers did I have an insight into these creative days in Genesis 1. 1 am going to I approach this portion of the message from a little different standpoint, trying to show you, on this chart, these circles pertaining to the eight days, how we have to look at it. There was actually only six creative days, so bear with me as I try to tie up loose ends. Let us first analyze the thought we get from these verses. Notice in chapter 1, and we are starting with verse 24, because He has brought into the picture the sun and moon on the fourth day. The fifth day He has spoken the marine life into existence. Now the sixth day is coming up so listen as we read. “And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, (this is the animal kingdom) cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.” He did this in the sixth day. Six is the number of man, but before He gets to man the animal kingdom has already been spoken into existence, in the spirit. This is one of the points we need to clarify: The animal kingdom has already been spoken into existence before He even said anything about man. Now we come to the 26th verse, “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: (God is speaking in conjunction with the angelic beings that are loyal and faithful to Him.) and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, an over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in ins own linage, In the Image of God created He him; male and female created He them.” So man is definitely a spirit offspring of His Creator. Jesus Christ, the begotten Son of God had nothing at all to do with creating the man you and I came out from. I have a reason for saving that. The one that begot you is the One that you call your heavenly Father, so let us ask ourselves In what relationship to God and earth is man at this particular time? He is a spirit being. Where is he? He is still in the presence and a part of the sovereign Spirit which is the Creator. Yet multitudes have believed that He was here on earth walking around from the moment God created him. That is not right. Just look how contradictory that makes our old thinking, to reality. If God had put you and me here on this earth, along with the animals that were created before us, and the next day God rested from all His work, what was watching over us for that thousand , years, while God rested? Do you ‘ follow me? You do not have an answer for that. Here is where Christendom has absolutely closed their eyes in total ignorance, because they refuse to accept the reality of these things. He created man in His own image and likeness. “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, (He is telling this to them in their spirit makeup, before He ever put them in a physical body. This was spoken into their conscience.) and replenish the earth, (That tells you right there, God is not playing with words. You cannot re-fill something that has never been filled.) and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. And God saw every thing that He had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.” That is where creation ended. Again I ask you, Where is this man and woman that knows all of this? Do you think they are here on this earth walking around? Is there literally an animal kingdom here walking around also? Think seriously now, as we go on into the next chapter. “Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.” At this time, these words declaring that the heavens and earth were finished, that is not talking about the original creating of the planet. These words describe how God has completed the stages, or the phases of His redeeming of the planet out of the judged state that prehistoric hour necessitated, bringing it through these stages, and re-claiming it for a future use. We have to realize He is just simply redeeming it: He is not initially creating it. We can call it re-generating it. It is being made acceptable for another creation to dwell upon, and this time angels will not be ruling: man will be ruling. That is what we have to understand, if we expect to get the picture right. “And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it He had rested from all His work which God created and made.” What we are saying, is that those seven days were no doubt seven thousand years, and when God finished His rest at the end of the seventh day He went back to work again, not creating but manifesting what He had already created. That is in line with what our early Church fathers believed and wrote. Notice now, as Moses continues his writings. “These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens.” Or we will just say, I When He redeemed the earth for the next purpose He had in mind. He had another creation ready to populate it, man, with his animal helpers.You cannot take the word generations, and relate it to twenty four hours. You never have a written document that is written with that type of numerical meaning. In fact, when we see God redeeming the planet, justifying it, bringing it through these stages, they are phases, because as the term evening is used, that is how God I looked upon the negative side of the situation that needed to be changed in order to put the earth and every other planetary body back in perfect balance and relationship to each other. If He is bringing it back out of that chaotic Ice Age, yes God could have instantaneously done it, because there is nothing impossible with Him, but when you begin to read what some of the ancient writers have said, it makes you think twice before you will just settle for a thought like that. That kind of thinking does not leave room for all the discoveries that must of necessity date back beyond your six thousand years some of you want to hold to. I have no trouble at all, accepting the millions of years that some of your scientists speak of, concerning many of these finds. What is a greater mystery to me, is how most preachers in this twentieth century want to read their Bible’s. When we know so much about everything else, why do so many have such a narrow-minded concept when it comes to knowing how to look at the wording of the Bible? They are real particular about saying what God said, but they are oh so careless when it comes to what He really meant by what He said. They cannot seem to accept the fact that there is a spirit world out there hovering around this planet, and an angelic host assisting in what God does. Even many of those who do believe some of that, still want to hold on to their traditions, when it comes to enlarging upon what their parents and grandparents believed. Well I cannot force anyone to see this, but I am totally convinced that these creative days were lengthy periods of time. Once God spoke a law into being, as far as He was concerned it was a finished work. His Spirit works in it, seeing the finished work from before it began. I have to look at it like that, because I have to believe according to what Paul says in Ephesians 1, That before there was a twinkling little star out there, God knew every one of us. Notice Ephesians 1:4-5, “According as He (God) hath chosen us in Him (Jesus, His Only begotten Son) before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love: (5) Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will.” He saw everyone one of us sitting right here before He ever spoke anything into existence. In this closing era of man’s allotted period of time laboring here, we are fighting our way through a mental conflict, the powers of Satan and his workers of darkness, battling against all who want to honor God in their lives. Satan knows man’s six thousand years, which is his six days of labor, is just about to finish out; and that very soon the Lord is coming to give this planet a Sabbath of rest from wickedness, which is another thousand years, so he is working very hard to draw as many as possible out of the straight and narrow way before the Lord comes. He knew all of this before it was ever even written in a Bible. Satan , is an enemy of God and of all who would live godly, and it is all because he tried to exalt himself above what he was created to be and forced the Creator to cast him down from his exalted position. Therefore Brothers and Sisters, do not look for his attacks to let up: They will intensify.
When we can see that God knew everything He would ever do concerning this earth before He ever created that first thing, that helps us understand that everything was by a definite plan. He was not experimenting as He went along. When it says, And the evening was thus and so, that is how He saw the negative side, before He began to deal with it. When there was nothing in the picture of things, to be the ruling means, then God says, Let us make man. He made man, but He did not make him until after He had already made the animal kingdom first. They were all created as spirit beings, but notice, Adam was not asked to name them at that time, was he? It was not until after the Sabbath was over and they were all in physical bodies, that Adam named them. Now think for a moment where the whole process , was, when God took a Sabbath of rest. Everything He has spoken into being, He sees it in the finished ‘ state in His own mind, and He said it was good. Now, after all that has been said, I ask you this, When He was taking His rest, what was taking place in the universe, and what was going on in this earth? He had started a process of slowly bringing it back to a state where it could once again be inhabited. He had already cleared up the atmosphere so that the sun is shining once again. This is how eventually, time is going to be relegated to man He would put here. Therefore while He is resting, God sets up a pull on this planet. I have to say, Everything He has spoken into existence, will eventually be materialized on this planet, but not until it is back in perfect relationship to the other planets and it has a climate that will allow plant life to start growing. Plant life was to be the very food source for all animal life and fowl life to exist on. I have read that in these scientists’ reports. God so ordained, that even they, as they try to break down the living cell and mention its component parts, how everything has to stack upon top of each other to work in harmony, so that is why, when God brought the planet back out of its void state the way He did, He was in no hurry. When you watch the stages, what is He doing? He is projecting a picture. Try to imagine, that by the time that Sabbath comes to a close, your generations, which involve thousands of years, are now ended. “These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens. (Or we could say reclaimed, redeemed, and workable them back into a relationship to each other.) And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, (yet He has already spoke every tree and every herb into existence,) and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth.” At that particular time, He was not going to cause it to rain until He got all the waters back in their proper relationship to space, as well as to the planet itself. All the time God was resting, the laws He had set in motion were continuing to work. That is why, when the Sabbath ended, the planet was back in a perfect relationship for Him to start the era of the physical existence of man. It is just that plain and simple. “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and man became a living soul.” What day was this? It was not on the Sabbath day, so what day follows the seventh day? Are you with my thought? It was on the day that starts the cycle all over again, the eighth, which literally is the first. From this, some of the ancient writers said this is why Jesus was crucified on the sixth day of the week, which was the preparation day before the Jewish Passover, which was their Sabbath day. In other words, He was crucified on this day, but He rose on this day (chart.) This tears the Seventh Day Adventists teachings all to pieces, simply because Jesus is looked upon as the beginning of the creation of God. We are talking about these new creatures that we are, after God’s light shines upon our lives. God put Adam here in the beginning of his six thousand years of man’s physical cycle. There was nothing at all manifested in flesh here, on the Lord’s Sabbath. With that in mind, this is why some of the writers went so far as to say, that as Jesus was crucified on the sixth day, the day before the Jewish Passover, but rose on the first day of the week, which is the eighth day, this sets a precise pattern, that He is the beginning of a new generation, He is the beginning of the new creation. In the book of Revelation Jesus is referred to as the beginning of the creation of God. He is not the beginning of the old creation in the prehistoric hour. How many see that? He is only the beginning of a new creation of God, when God is redeeming man that is passing through the cycle of sin and rebellion, and has brought it through a complete cycle, and the earth through its Millennium, which is its Sabbath, then all is going to be completely redeemed. From that, then the planet will be ushered into the eternal age, where the glory of God comes down and surrounds it. The only thing on that new earth, is going to be the redeemed of the ages, and there will never be any more sin. It is world without end, as we see written in the Bible. When you look back through time, you see that God does things in three stages. He has used the planet for the angels. He has used the planet, for a period of time, for man; and then He will have in in its Seemed state where time will never end. As I said earlier, There were no polar regions on this planet earth in the prehistoric hour. Since then though, it hung here for thousands of years, frozen up, and then God started this re-creating process, bringing it back to a state of usefulness. First He calls for light and then He started separating the waters and such, and speaking to the earth to bring forth plant life and everything according to its kind. The ice began to melt and eventually He would have the planet back where He could put man here. What you want to keep in mind though, is that none of this was instantaneous, and when the hour did come that He did put man here on the earth, which would be on that first day after His Sabbath, the eighth day, but in reality it was the first day of a new cycle. All that time, the earth was moving through time, on its way to becoming a perfect climate. Had sin not entered the picture, it would have continued on like that, but no sooner than He put man here, bingo, here comes the devil, right in the beginning of man’s earthly existence. Since we know, before the flood man lived almost a thousand years, that gives even more credit to the thousand year days, because God said to Adam, (Gen. 2:16-17) “Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: (17) 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: According to those ancient write’s, Adam died within the same day he partook of the forbidden fruit, and his total life span was 930 years, which says to me, that just a little before the end of that first day he died. When God said, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat, He was speaking about the planet life trees for his natural food. The tree of the knowledge of good and evil pertained to a spiritual law that was the opposite of LIFE, so it was DEATH, but as far as the physical body was concerned, it was not instant death like the wording sounds. That is why a revelation of what God means when He speaks is so essential to our spiritual health. In reality, Adam was placed on earth in a physical body in the beginning of the first thousand years after the Creator rested from all His work, so thinking like that, the scripture makes more sense, IN THE DAY THAT THOU EATEST THEREOF, THOU SHALL SURELY DIE. Even though he sinned, God still allowed him to live to be 930 years old. Think of it! I have to say, God is not ignorant of what He is doing and He is not ignorant of how He had certain things to be written. Before God revealed the truth to us, we just assumed that since He created the animal kingdom and created man on the sixth day, that he was here already, with animals running everywhere while the Creator rested. That is a distorted picture. If man was here on earth while God rested, where was he? There is no mention of a garden until you get to the 8th verse of chapter 2, and God had already rested before that. Read those first verses of chapter 2, and pay particular attention to verses 7 and 8, and ask yourself, Why is this worded the way it is? You have to come to this conclusion, Either we are finally looking at it right, or the wording here in the Bible is wrong, because, If Adam was here before God rested, and God rested a thousand years, Adam would be pretty old by the time that Sabbath day ended, yet it is recorded in chapter 5, verse 5, that he lived 930 years. Notice, (5) “And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died.” It just simply does not add up right, unless you sec God manifesting all these things that He had previously created in the spirit, after His Sabbath day ended. Do you follow me now? I honestly do not believe you can make anything else out of it. It is just the way carnal minded men, with their modern concept, have been looking at the picture, and not really allowing the Spirit of God to enlighten them. Naturally the true revelation of all of this was lost during those long years of the Dark Ages, when that spirit of Catholicism ruled. Not until the Reformation started, did God begin to restore these lost truths back into the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, and it has been a slow process coming about, because church leaders did not want to depart from their traditions to follow anything that was new to them. Little by little though, God has dropped a little nugget here and there, getting us ready for the time when He would enable us to see the entire picture clearly. Hallelujah! All glory belongs to Him, because without the leading of His Spirit, we would never read anything right.Yes saints, after His Sabbath, the Creator took of the dust of the earth and created the physical body of Adam first, and placed him in the Garden , and then brought forth the animals and so forth in their physical bodies afterward. This is why Adam is called the beginning of God’s created family on earth, and Jesus is the beginning of His begotten family. We are begotten by His Spirit into eternal life, Jesus Christ Himself being the first begotten from the dead, He stands at the head of this family God is preparing for that eternal age. In Ephesians 2: 4, we read this, “But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, (5) Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us(given us life) together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) (6) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Jesus Christ, in redemption, is the beginning, so Adam was the beginning of a creation, and he was made to be a god-like creature to rule over this creation. That is why he was the first thing, physically, that God ever put here. God made him first; and then God did not have to wonder, Where are my trees? He already saw the beautiful place where He would put the man He had created, because the earth was already back in relationship, so that the child, my mother got two little environment was just right. So goldfish in a little bowl. In that era when God looked at that spot of of time out in country, life was vegetation and plant life growing so quite primitive. My sister and I used lush in the Middle East, He said, to watch those goldfish swimming Here is where I will put man. What around. In the winter time when the He did, was put a little bit of heaven fire would burn low, I have seen there on the earth and said, Adam, that little fish bowl frozen solid. follow me. He took him into it, and Then when the fire got going in the as Adam walked into that beautiful stove, if it did not thaw it too environment, he saw much of the quickly, everything would be OK. spirit world blended right in with We would just bring it close enough the natural world.

I am temperature, there they go, just as if in the le verse. “And the Lord nothing ever happened. That is why God said, It is not good that the I have to say, God did not have to man should be alone; I will make say, Now Adam, don’t forget there him an help meet for him.” These are fish out there, so you have to animals did not come out of the name everything in the water also. ground until after there was a Do you follow my thought? It goes I garden on the earth. Get the setting to show that since they were cold right and you have a beautiful blooded creatures, after that fifth picture. We just have to . j put day, as the water temperature got everything in perspective. To fail to just right, the fish could start do it, all we have in front of us is a swimming. Therefore they could box full of something like have already been in the waters and crossword puzzles, though they are God did not have to bring them scriptures, and we do not know before Adam. Why is it the i where to put them. That is what we scientists will say today, that the are looking at. I have a book by a large whales in the ocean are Christian writer: He tells about his experience, in the first part of the I book. When he first started, after becoming a Christian, going into the various religious circles and hearing their concept of creation, it made him so sick and disgusted. People who are supposed to be wise, believing in God, can be so ignorant about a book. I have to say, Part of this ignorance is due to the time factor, religious wise, man has had to travel through. Keep in mind, Catholicism did not produce a writer that ever wrote anything on the book of Genesis. They were so busy, so taken up in establishing their rituals and creeds, they spent their life time on all such stuff. Well Adam is in the garden, but he is all alone. God did not want him to be alone: he could not fulfill his commission being alone. Therefore out of the ground, here came the animals and so forth. Now some will still say, Well, I thought they were created first. The Bible says they were created on the sixth day. That shows they were created in spirit, and God established a law that would be in them, but there was not one four legged animal walking on the planet, nor any fowl flying until after Adam was standing upon the earth. One by one, here came the cow and the elephant and so on. I see the giraffe, the donkey, the horse, you name them, because right here is where all of them started out. Actually they were two by two, male and female instead of one by one. Notice it was at that time that the fowl came to him and he named them I thought they were already here, flying around. No. Read it more closely. “And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them.” Right there is where Adam named every animal and every bird that you and I now have have in the heavens. Now watch. Hera is an eye opener. Marine life and fowl life were created on the fifth day, but over here, in Adam’s day of manifestation only the fowl are mentioned, and not one thing is said about the marine life. We should not be stumbling here though, because all fish life are cold blooded creatures. Therefore on that fifth creative day, when God has said, Let the waters bring forth, it lets me know the planet was already getting warmed up enough and since there was enough water fish could have begun to swim. I will never forget, when I was a little boy, it is a known fact that fish can be frozen up for a long period, and then if they are thawed out right, when they get to a certain temperature, they will come back to life, so to speak. When I was a little child, my mother got two little goldfish in a little bowl. In that era of time out in country, life was quite primitive. My sister and I used to watch those goldfish swimming around. In the winter time when the fire would burn low, I have seen that little fish bowl frozen solid. Then when the fire got going in the stove, if it did not thaw it too quickly, everything would be OK. We would just bring it close enough that the heat could thaw it slowly. Time and time again we have seen those fish thawed out and be OK. When that last bit of ice is gone and the water gets to a certain temperature, there they go, just as if nothing ever happened. That is why I have to say, God did not have to say, Now Adam, don’t forget there are fish out there, so you have to name everything in the water also. Do you follow my thought? It goes to show that since they were cold blooded creatures, after that fifth day, as the water temperature got just right, the fish could start swimming. Therefore they could have already been in the waters and God did not have to bring them before Adam. Why is it the scientists will say today, that the large whales in the ocean are hundreds and thousands of years old as a species. It just goes to show, that as a species their origin does not necessarily go back to your and my beginning. They are just exactly like what was in the marine family before. Do you follow me? I hope I have not lost any of you. It is right here in this book. There are people that close their mind’s saying, it matters not, what anyone says, I still believe He made what He made in six twenty four hour days, so you need not tell me anything different. You are an infidel, if you take that attitude. That is what this man wrote about, how doctors of divinity, as well as other people, would argue and call each other devil’s. I grant you, there are certain things that do shock you, but it just goes to show how human we are. We are born in this world under the penalty of sin and death. There is no need for us to think that we know anything apart from what God allows. We are victims of the situation we were born into. Nevertheless every creature that flies today, and they that walk the face of this earth, were all named by Adam Their names have carried right down through time to this very hour. I think Adam did a pretty good job naming them. Look at the beauty of this: It was at that time, that God causes a sleep to come upon Adam and took a rib from him and made him a wife. Watch how this backs up. It was not in this day (pointing to sixth day on chart) that God caused a deep sleep to come on Adam. It was over here. (in the eighth day) Here is where he was put to sleep. He has already named his pets, I will call them pets, at that time. I believe every animal came up and sniffed over Adam. Adam said, I will call you an elephant. I can see that elephant truck moving all over Adam’s head, smelling him all over. Every species of the cat family likewise. The other night I was privileged to watch a documentary on the wild kingdom. It showed a certain place in Africa, where in olden days the cheetah was a very flourishing animal, but in this particular region, to the best of their ability to know, they began to realize that this cheetah was becoming extinct. They built a large habitat. They began to catch what was available and put them in there to get them out of the wild jungles. It showed the woman that was a care taker and the one doing the photography. This woman was sitting on a rock inside a chain link fence. Two full grown adult cheetahs were sitting on the rock beside her, just like a cat would sit. Each one was reaching over and licking that woman on the arm. I thought to myself, That just goes to show, there is still within the wildest animal, if somewhere from , infancy on up they have been exposed to the touch of a human, they seem to remember it. I could not help but say, Oh God, Hasten the day when we will not have to have wrought iron fences; and when we will not have to worry about extinction. We will not have bounty hunters looking for hides, and needless slaughter of anything. This man you see on TV occasionally, on the morning programs, one day he brought in some young lion cubs. They were passing them from one person to another. Those cubs were licking the hands of those holding them, because they have learned the touch of human beings. I cannot help but wonder, just how those animals approached Adam that day. I do not think they raised their ears, wondering if they should get close or not. They were brought before him to be his help mates, or his pets. Every animal was designed intelligence wise, to somewhere in time be of assistance to mankind. None of them were suitable for a helpmate, in order for Adam to be fruitful and multiply, so God is going to give Adam a personal companion. Over there earlier, when He said, Let us make man in our image and likeness, it then says, So in the image of God made He them male and female; period. However, they were not yet in a physical body. They were not in physical bodies until right here, (the eighth day). Then after they are put here, the male and female spirit are still together in one body, so this should begin to straighten up some on the days of creation, what was meant on the sixth day, and what was meant over here, which we would call the eighth day, but it is actually starting all over again to keep the cycle right, so it is also the first day of the new cycle. When He took from Adam a rib and made his wife, this typed redemption that would be constituted through the Lord Jesus Christ. I have to say, From here on, we can go through the Bible and through all creation, and catch the types and shadows that point to the fact that God already had redemption at work. No sooner has He brought the wife into his presence, in the 23’d verse of the 2″4″ chapter, do we find Adam naming her, “And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.” It was on this day, (the eighth day) right there, that they were both put here on earth in human bodies. God had already commanded them, while they were only spirit beings, to be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth. That is already in their conscience. He never had to tell them again. When they were in their physical bodies, That is when He told them, You can eat of every tree of the earth, but the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, the day thou eatest thereof, thou shalt surely die. That is why we have to see that this was, his first day on earth. Before that day was over they had sinned and died. I have to say, Thank you Father, for setting such a beautiful type. I knew what I felt myself, but I had to read some of the writings of those ancient believers and see how they looked at those creative days, to satisfy myself. There are very few today that even take the time to indulge in searching the old records. I am satisfied now, that we have it right, so I have something written here, that I wrote yesterday after reading some of those ancient writings, and I will read it to you at this time.
MY FINAL THOUGHTS
“The six days in Genesis 1, are regenerating days, each one a thousand years long.” You and I were already here, but did that make you a son of God that has eternal life? No. We had to be regenerated, did we not?. What does the New Testament say? We have received the spirit of regeneration. He is the beginning of the creation of God, for He is the firstborn among many brethren, He is the firstfruits from among the dead. That constitutes the fact that He is the beginning of the new creation of God. “Man was created as spirit man on the sixth day, the last thing of all the animal family. The seventh day God rested as the earth is gradually being warmed up to accept life, and it was a thousand years long. After this time, plant life was beginning to make its appearance on earth. Now God creates man from the dust of the earth and makes him a living soul.” Then Adam was not only a spirit being having a soul, now he is in a body, and he is a triune being. He is not three people. He is not three spirits. Do you catch the point? “Now God creates man from the dust of the earth and makes him a living soul. This takes place at the beginning of another day, which would be the eighth day.” That is why, in the New Testament it speaks of the eighth day, which is pointing to the eternal age. “This sets a type pointing to the resurrection of Christ Jesus, which took place on the eighth day, the first day of the week” The Holy Ghost fell on the first day of the week, after those disciples had been assembled together for a number of days waiting for the promise of the Father. It is the spirit of regeneration. “This all points to a new creation. Adam was put in the garden at the beginning of his first day, which is a day of one thousand years, but he died just before that day ended. All this proves that mankind has lived on this present earth almost the full term of six thousand years, which is six days. See Psalms 90:4, For one day with the Lord is a thousand years. The next thousand years is the seventh day, coming up, in order for the earth to have a Millennium.” Why does it say in Romans, For the whole creation groans together, even until now, longing, waiting for that day of the manifestation of the sons of God? No wonder creation is groaning, and no wonder humanity today is grinding away in an endless darkness. When you see the modern concept of man, they want to give him freedom to live like the devil, yet they want no physical harm to come to his flesh. That is why one scientist, when he sees modem man living like he is, says this, If I have to subject myself to think that we evolved out of nothing, then why are there so many laws to govern us? He said laws pertain to people that have a need to be governed. We can say this, When Jesus Christ comes, and He has taken over the kingdoms of this world, that is why the wicked are going to be destroyed and the righteous are going to be chosen to rule and reign with Him. There will be a remnant be chosen to live as the subjects He will rule over. In Revelation 20:4, John saw the souls of them that had been beheaded for the witness of Jesus Christ and for the word of God, and that had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, these lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. You know what happens at that time, Christ has redeemed and now resurrected every deceased saint of all times. He has already got His righteous Bride with Him, and now the tribulation saints that have sealed their faith by giving their life are resurrected, and it says, But the rest of the dead, which are the wicked, lived not again until the thousand years are over. Then, for a thousand years, Jesus is going to take His rightful throne, which is in Jerusalem, but He is going to delegate to His Bride, which is a people that have come out of every nation on earth, the authority to rule with Him. They are going to be in immortal flesh. They are going to be invested with power as kings and priests, to rule and reign over the subjects of the nations. That is why it says in Isaiah, In that day the lion shall eat straw like the bullock. This sounds to educated mankind like we are crazy, but my soul is reaching out for that, because I like animals. It is sometimes comical, to watch animals on a farm, old Fido, the dog where there are usually two or three cats around: Here comes Fido to the barn; He is met by one of the kitty cats. It is nice to see that cat walk up to him and rub him on the nose. The dog will reach down so the cat can get to him. I am not making fun. That is the way life is supposed to be in the animal kingdom. I will never forget a few years ago, when I was raising a couple colts: I had one in one stable and the other in another. We had a litter of kittens born in the barn. One of those kittens, when he got big enough to crawl around, would go into the stable. Then for some reason, that kitten would climb the wall and get on top of the partition. I went to the barn many mornings, and there would be that kitten sitting on the partition. One colt was on one side, and the other on the other side, and that kitten licking each one on the nose. As they got bigger, I would go into the barn, and here he is on the back of one of them. To me, the Millennium is going to be a beautiful, harmonious time. Nothing shall hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain saith the Lord. The earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters that cover the sea. When I think of I the marine life, how man, in the last sixty years, has just found out that marine life is very intelligent, it is very exciting. Look at the whales and dolphins. It is amazing to see how dolphins will take to a human being. If they can do that now in Paul’s writing in the 15th chapter of 1st Corinthians, shall be delivered back up to God the Father, (the Creator) that God the Father may be recognized as all in all. What a world! He has redeemed this earth in three steps. He has on this earth a family of angels, a family of sons, and Himself. Scientists are way off marine ponds, just wait until the Millennium reign of Christ is in effect. The earth is going to be a beautiful place. Throughout that thousand years there will be no sin, no evil, no killings, no death, except that which will take place among the rebellious, when the Lord has to deal with them. Death in that sense will not defile the earth, because that is the day that God will use the the subject people to restore the environment and ecology back to this planet, to get it back the way it is supposed to be. As this Millennium closes, one of the minor prophets spoke this way, And the earth in that day shall yield its increase. It will not withhold. And the tree of the field shall bear its fruit. No wonder the earth needs a Millennium to rest, it is a redemptive process for it. I have to say, There is no doubt that as we start into the Millennium, the earth may look much like it does now, because there will be scars of all kinds, but as that thousand years comes and goes, I believe the spirit of God will still be drawing it back to a perfect relationship with the other planets. We know the calendar we use is out of balance, because a perfect year would have ; only 360 days, so by the time that thousand years is over, the earth will be back in proper relationship, like it was in the original. There will not be another glacier in the polar regions. That is why, when we look in Revelation 21 and 22, and the angel says to John, “Come hither, I will show thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife. And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God.” We know the Lamb’s wife, is His Church, but when he was carried away into that great and mighty mountain, he saw that holy city coming down, and Oh how carnal minds have materialized that. That magnificent city of gold, with gates of pearl, is a city that is foursquare. When you foursquare anything, you cube it. That is the mathematical conclusion. It shows that everything that is represented in that anointing is complete. When you cube anything, you make all sides equal, the breadth, the depth, and the height, you cannot add nor take away from it, or you will distort the perfection. What John saw was none other than the anointing of Almighty God coming down to earth, as it was in the Garden of Eden. Here, is where God accepts His redeemed kingdom, His redeemed family, and His redeemed earth. Now He has got it just the way He wants it. John, as he looked, said, I John saw a new heaven and a new earth. He saw a spirit world: There were no devils. No more grave yards would ever be seen. No more burial memorials to this man or that man. And there was no more sea. Now God has His planet in perfect , balance, because redemption has I restored everything. Christ has been the beginning and the finisher of that whole redemptive process. , Then this kingdom, as it says in track. They have denied God, taught evolution and made fun of everyone that confesses to believe in a Creator; and now we are coming down to the end of the six thousand years the Creator allotted to man, six thousand years that He has allowed man to speak at will, and what a sad picture these scientists have painted before mankind for so long now, only to have to admit one day soon, that there truly is a God that is head of this whole thing. “Let God be true, but every man a liar,” the apostle Paul wrote, meaning, all who speak contrary. Amen
