Christian Identity believes in the biblical concept of creation as opposed to the Big Bang theory or evolution. When dealing with the particulars of the Genesis account, we differ with organized religion or the mainstream establishment of churchianity because of racial questions they fail to answer. It is the issue of race upon which God's plan for the ages, His reason for creation and it's purpose pertains. Much of the Bible is veiled in obscurity to most judeo-Christian's understanding because they have discarded the Old Testament for the New.
However, Genesis is the book of beginnings and there we shall start. It is not only the start of the universe and our planet and all life upon it, but it is also the beginning of a progressive revelation of God and His intentions for us. Most people don't have a clue as to what God wants of us. They think simplistically that they just get 'saved' so that they can go to heaven. Sorry! but nobody goes to heaven ("no man hath ascended up to heaven" John 3:13). It all happens here on earth. If we don't understand this first book, the rest of the Bible is convoluted. The literal Kingdom of God or of Heaven was planned from the foundation of the world (Mt. 25:34). It is here. Spiritualizing this Kingdom and the people whom God chose to build it undermine and destroy the very heart and substance of the Bible account.
Genesis 1:1 says "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." Notice it did not say when this spectacular event happened or how long it took. Unfortunately, the majority of people argue over the age of the earth from a dateless past. It's the young earth theory verses the old earth theory. Much frivolous debate from people who weren't there or don't have time machines. Nevertheless, it's worth evaluating.
Here are some of the salient points made by both sides. Some say the earth is only 6000 years old, not millions, because methods like carbon dating are greatly limited and can only go back 30,000 years. Any decay method of dating is based on assumptions. For example, if you see a candle burning, do you know how long it's been burning or when it was lit? A scientist can measure the height and burn time, but beyond establishing it's original height before it was lit is an assumption. An assumption is unprovable. Science is able to accurately measure how much carbon 14 is in an object today and the decay rate can be measured, but after that the dating is pure speculation. The problem with any dating method is that they are calibrated against the geologic column or fossil record, which is the primary factor used and abused in the theory of evolution.
When a dinosaur bone is discovered, it is automatically assumed to be 100 million years old. Several years ago they took bone samples out of living penguins in Antarctica and through carbon dating determined they were 8000 years old. The false premise that turned Darwin against the Bible was the idea of sediments in geology being different ages. The soil layers are dated by the fossils they contain based on the assumption that evolution is true.
Darwin copied Aristotle's chain of beings, arranging an order of man at top to simple life forms at the bottom within an expanse of time for which it all evolves. The circular reasoning is that layers of rock are dated by the kind of fossils they contain and then speak out of the other side of their mouth and date the fossils by which layer of sediment they're found in. All alleged missing link subhuman cavemen, the chain of beings, have been proven to be frauds like the Nebraska Man or the Piltdown Man. Lucy is the current pseudo monkey-man. The purveyors of evolution have lied, shamelessly fabricating false evidence, because they prefer a primordial ooze as their distant relatives as opposed to the power of an Almighty Creator. Darwinian evolution is an unscientific religion. Nobody has ever proven the Bible wrong, especially science. Many have tried to disprove the Bible, but the Bible is the anvil that has worn out many hammers.
The preceding young earth arguments occupy the minds of many fundamentalist creationists and paradoxically relate to theistic evolutionists although they would deny it. The theistic evolutionists believe God used evolution to bring the world into being. The creationists counters by saying this is outside of scripture and science because it combines the supernatural with the natural. They say God made everything right the first time, so He didn't need millions of years to fool around with random chance and happy accidents. We shall see their hypocrisy shortly. Identity throws out the question: where did all the different races come from, and provides the only real and logical answer as we shall see later in our study of Adam.
We will give a little equal time to the old earthers who say the universe and the earth are millions of years old. They will argue as saliently as the former, posing such observations as how else could there be vast deposits of crude oil from prehistoric decay of vegetation and extinct animals. They put forth the notion of stars being 15 billion light-years away, although this enters the realm of assumption. Parallax trigonometry will give you a maximum of 100 light-years. Beyond that, they are making up the numbers. The stars could be that far away, but with our present hard science it is impossible to measure. Plus, there is no way to prove that the speed of light has always been consistent all through space and time. The Bible says God stretched out the heavens like a curtain (Ps.104:2, Is.40:22); so creation could have been from a point of origin to infinity (which could take a long time, hmm?).
However, God is not limited by the speed of light and could have created the universe with the appearance of age just like He created Adam to be fully grown and programmed to speak the first day. Again, carbon dating can prove the earth is less than 30,000 years old, but cannot prove it 6000 years specifically. Wouldn't you like to ask the theorist what was happening one second before the Big Bang? We must understand that man is not God. When someone asks "where is God?", they presume He has the same limitations we have of time, space and matter. He does not. He created time, space and matter. He is omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient. The old earthers will also argue that the days of the creation week were in the millions of years. They believe the Neanderthal man existed between 100,000 and 45,000 years before Christ. The Cro-Magnons (40,000 to 20,000 B.C.) indicate a more developed culture, known for their cave paintings and artifacts.
There are many other bipeds (the ability to walk upright on two feet) or hominids that are believed to have lived before Adam, which Bible chronologists date at about 4000 B.C.. Adam was the only species of mankind that God created. Adam did not evolve from earlier bipeds. The old earthers would claim that an estimated 50 million hominids existed on earth when Adam appeared.
We could go on and on about many interesting facets of history and science, but I think you get the idea that some things are beyond the scope of our comprehension. There are limitations to our knowledge. The fact is, the inner workings of God's creation are secret and will remain so. All we need to know, for confirmation, is found in the Bible which will suffice our understanding. To get bogged down in endless squabbles is nonsensical. The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us (Deut. 29:29). What has been revealed to us up to this point is that there are enemies of the Truth who will go to any length to accomplish their unscientific and unchristian goals to realize political and sociological agendas, such as: the integration of the races, mongrelization, miscegenation, one world government and one world religion. Without their common origin of the races, their doctrine of equality disintegrates. In fact, there are no other species of man, because God only created 'kind after kind' and called it good, meaning Adam was racially pure. All other bipeds are impure and the Bible is negative towards them. They were never given the “breath of life” (Gen. 2:7) i.e. the Spirit of God.
The revealed Truth is contrary to their ungodly machinations. Things such as: 1. most anthropologists concur that the various hominids have a long and separate history and that there is no evidence of a common origin as most judeo-Christian doctrine teaches, 2. the fossil record is simply a record of God's past Creation, 3. skeletal remains prove the existence of primitive hominids prior to Adam's arrival in 4000 B.C., 4. God's creative pattern controls the progression of life as it does the fossil record as a whole; the early primitive types precede later advanced types i.e. the negro preceded the Adamic White man, 5. God allows life forms to become extinct; the Cro-Magnon and Neolithic breeds may have cohabited with lower primates, explaining the hybrid mixed blood mongrels comprising today's non-White populations, 6. certain hominids are older than others, 7. Adam did not evolve from these older breeds and these older breeds did not evolve from Adam.
These seven points are not secret, but the detractors of God's Word wish they were. We must believe in the Word and works of God as revealed to the faithful. The poor evolutionist has a much worse problem of just getting two cells of the opposite sex to evolve from swamp and rock at the same time and in the same place. Man trying to create life in the lab is as successful as trying to flip a penny and getting heads 4 billion times in a row.
There's a big difference between changing varieties of species and evolution. There's probably 250 varieties of dogs and roses produce many varieties of roses. Variation does not prove the dog and rose have a common ancestor. Only God creates. Anything outside of this divine concept is an extreme and desperate attempt to usurp God while making man the ultimate authority.
Let's move on to Genesis 1:2 relating to the earth alone. "And the earth was (or possibly translated 'became') without form, and void (desolate and waste); and darkness was upon (over) the face (plural) of the deep (waters). And the Spirit of God (the Hebrew phrase ruach elohim could denote a mighty wind of Elohim) moved (was hovering; the Hebrew verb rachaph means 'to flutter' like a bird over her nest.) upon the face of the waters". Some believe that between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2 there is a period of unknown duration during which an unknown number of events took place resulting in a state of cataclysmic change and dark ruin, which is not typical of God's creation. Many scholars believe verse 2 describes a destruction of a life-form that was on the earth prior to the restoration in the next verse (3). This period of time could have been the great Ice Age, referred to by historians. They claim this would explain the subterranean reserves of oil and natural gas and explains how dinosaurs and shell life strata are found in various mountains throughout the world. The phrase "without form and void" is the Hebrew Tohu va bohu, which suggests conditions similar to our moon or planets, a vast wasteland with no life, and is found in only one other passage of scripture (Jeremiah 4:23). It may be that Jeremiah was describing the events which produced the Tohu va bohu conditions including the withdrawal of light and apparently, in verse 26, there were cities that were broken down.
Conversely, the fundamentalist have dubbed this the 'gap theory' and reject it, although it does no harm to scripture. However, we do know from Genesis 1:28 that God instructed the male and female of the previous verse to replenish the earth. Plenich is an obsolete English word and means 'to fill'; you can't refill something that wasn't filled previously. Same with Psalms 104:30; you can't "renewest the face of the earth" unless there was something new to begin with.
The English word 'God' as used in the Bible comes from the Hebrew word Elohim. From Genesis 1:1 through 2:3 this word appears as the entity doing the creating i.e. the one true God. For many years there has been a controversy over what some consider to be the "Sacred Name" of the Creator, but it can also be argued that the debate is really between whether or not it is a name or title. When dealing with the four Hebrew letter characters, known as the tetragrammton and conveyed as YHWH by some (with a variety of vowels filling in the blanks for pronunciation among sacred namers) is commonly translated into English as the 'Lord God.' I am not persuaded that using the English titles such as Lord or God is wrong or blasphemous as some suggest. A proper word study will reveal what is true and what is arbitrary. Refer to my article 'The Name Game' where all respect is given to the Almighty Creator.
It should be pointed out that Genesis 1:3-25 give a very definite order to the creation process. Each creative act helps support the next step of the creation. The Genesis account is in harmony with geological/fossil records and the order in which life appeared. Science dovetails with the Biblical order of creation in this synopsis: 1. creation of the universe and earth (Genesis 1:1); 2. formation of land and seas (Genesis 1:6-10); 3. creation of plants (Genesis 1:11); 4. creation of sea life, whales and birds (Genesis 1:20-21); 5. formation of land mammals (Genesis 1:24); 6. creation of man (Genesis 1:26-28). The first life forms, plants, are the most primitive, followed by more advanced life-forms, animals.
It was not God's intent to give a blow by blow description of the entire process, but rather a generalization. No one knows for sure the origin of non-Adamic hominids nor should we care. The only thing that matters is that the mongrel breeds are among us and that God says they will eventually be destroyed, because they are good for nothing. The wonder and mystery of this racial alien is that it has never applied to other plants or animals, but exclusively to non-Whites in the world. It is only logical that the process (of God's plan for the ages) ascend (not evolve) in order of complexity chronologically from inferior to superior. The fossil record reflects God's intricate pattern of creation of different species of the same family. For example, the smaller, more primitive types of horses were created earlier than the modern larger horses. They did not evolve within the family. The many forms of life have followed this pattern, including the anatomical form. Each of the species were created at different periods of time and designed to have specific geographical habitats conducive to survival. The hypocrisy of judeo-Christian fundamental creationist is that they believe that God originally created one general type or kind of each plant and animal and that all the other species now existing derived from them. They apply this notion to the so-called “human race” coming from Adam. This is very simply evolution in disguise; when one species evolves into another new species, which is, in reality, nothing more than mongrelization. According to these fundamentalists, we are to reject millions of years for species to have evolved, but we are to believe their version of the other so called races evolving from Adam within a few hundred years.
It was God's plan that a specific life-form reproduce only after its own kind (species), whereas the fundamentalist/evolutionist plan is that it interbreed with other kinds; 'after its own kind' is mentioned ten times. As we look at the biology of the fossil record, there are no animals in transition with partially developed fins, wings etc.
The branch of science that deals with classification of plants and animals is called taxonomy and is based on the idea that species were of a fixed, specific and immutable type of group created by God that remained constant with slight varieties through all time. Varieties are often times nothing more than different names for the same thing, such as "mule deer" and "black tail deer" or "Japanese" and "Korean". Evolutionists are anti-species and therefore have perverted the definition of the word species to mean indefinite variations of unfixed character. This should be recognized by all as intellectual dishonesty. It was believed by many naturalists that the "kinds" designation used in Genesis is synonymous with the concept of species. Strongs confirms this; see "kind" #4327. The point is that if an amphibian could not gradually evolve into a reptile, then a group of White people could not have evolved into Negros, Chinese, Indians etc.
It must be noticed that there is a great difference between the three principal races of the earth: Oriental, Negro, and Adamic (or Caucasian). There is little relationship between the three because they are not the same species. Each is of a separate genus and history of origin. It is generally accepted that certain races are older than others. The Negro and Australian aborigines date back 40,000 years, the Oriental about 25,000, and some Arabic types about 10,000 years and finally the White man at about 6,000 years ago. Remember that God does the creating in each and every instance, with the earliest being the most primitive, and the last, the most advanced. The White race were unquestionably the last comers, being in every way superior to the other two, appearing suddenly on the historic scene with a high state of civilization constituting leaders and teachers. The Old Testament gives us the best and right explanation for the existence and superiority of the Adamic or White race.
In Genesis 1:3-4, God said "Let there be light, and there was light. And God divided the light from the darkness." As you read and study the Bible, you will discover that this was much more than day-night division. It will become a physical and spiritual division of both man and beast according to their creation and actions. Light is symbolic of God's Word and Spirit. Darkness is the absence of it. Evidently, this light of verses 3 through 4 is not the sun or moon as we know it, as they were not created until the fourth day of creation in verses 14-19. We are told in Revelation 21:23 and 22:5 just what this light was. So when the Kingdom of God on earth reaches complete manifestation, it will be just like this period of creation in verse 3 through 4. God declared it was good with satisfied enjoyment upon the results of His work at each stage of celebration (verses 10, 12, 18, 21, 25 and 31).
The "us" and "our" of Genesis 1:26 is the Elohim in the plural of the Godhead mentioned as the "fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ" Ephesians 3:9. There are many interpretations to the discerning of man's creation thanks to the different translations of manuscript sources and whether his (the translator) interest are less in the facts of the story than their meaning. From whatever source the compiler drew his material, we can only pray that it was to set forth the beginnings of history of our own people in terms of the purpose of God for the world. God created man for His own fellowship and to obey His will, and only through that obedience could the fellowship be maintained. To miss this through concentration of all the details of the story, which are often characterized as naive, and on the etiological (origin, cause) motifs that may be traced in it, is to miss the authors real aim. It is in this spirit that we humbly offer an Identity "answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you."
Genesis 1:26-27 "And God said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness and let them have dominion." The word used for man or men is the Hebrew word "Adam" #120, used to designate the species as a generic whole, both typical male and female as noted in verse 29 and Genesis 5:2. It does not appear as a proper noun (personal name) "Adam" before Genesis 4:1, 25 (Gen. 2:20 and 3:17 excepted). Genesis 2:7 gives the specific account and particulars of the creation of Adam-man. The word "image" in Gen. 1:26-27 is the Hebrew word tselem #6754 and means 'to shade', as being a resemblance; hence a representative figure; often used to mean similar, as in the phrase 'shades of the past'. Adam was the shades of God, in other words resembling God's image and having the moral dispositions of God by His Spirit that He placed in Adam. Adam was of the White race because God's color scheme in scripture portrays Godly things only as white or light, never dark or colored. "After (according to) our likeness (as Our representatives) and let them have dominion (over the fish, the birds etc)" completes the interpretation of the verse.
Some have claimed that Genesis 1:27 refers to the creation of the other races, however Genesis 5 is a parallel account and clearly refers only to Adam. The good intentions of pious churchianity is bankrupt in understanding the Bible as a racial book written in regards to one race only. The other races are so insignificant that they are not worth mentioning, albeit the caveat to avoid them. A Ford owner's manual does not discuss Chevrolets. God has decided the exclusions and people have no say in the matter. "This is the book of the generations of Adam" Genesis 5:1. Paul explains in Romans 8:29 "For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren" and tells us in the next chapter, Romans 9:3, who his brethren are "my kinsmen according to the flesh: v4 who are Israelites." The theme of a pure racial lineage runs throughout the Bible from Adam to Christ and from Christ to the present White Christian.
God saw that everything He had made was very good, and He rested on the seventh day. Each time frame of His creation He called a day, however Genesis 2:4 calls the days generations and the word day, describing the whole creation, is a collective noun. Which could explain why the Bible tells us "that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years" II Peter 3:8, making Genesis 1 a 7000 year creation (if that is the case).
There is strong importance attached to the phrase and idea of "everything after its own kind" mentioned 10 times in the first chapter. Racial integrity should be no different than the rest of the plant and animal kingdom. Each specie remains true to its genetic pattern as God intended. This is especially critical to Adamkind, as God spoke to His people (the White race) "Ye shall not go in to them (the other races), neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods" I Kings 11:2.
The most compelling proof of who Adam was/is and what he represents is found in the Hebrew language itself. The word for man is the very word Adam. All scriptural evidence confirms Adam as a White man. From Strong's in the Old Testament, Adam is #120 and means a "ruddy human being" (the species, mankind) and derives from #119 "to show blood (in the face), i.e. flush or turn rosy." Only the White race is capable of blushing, turning rosy-cheeked and is biblically called 'fair' (skinned). Strong's and other theological textbooks use of the word 'human' is a misnomer. The word human is nowhere in the Bible. The prefix 'hu' means color and thus 'colored man' is the subtle interjection. One must admit that the colored races do not fit the Adamic profile.
White people often appear as though they are reddish (ruddy) or sunburnt because the blood readily shows through our nonpigmented, colorless skin. We can conclude that the plan of God incorporates the symbolism of light and dark, white and color as the difference between positive, godly, pure, good, peaceful and honorable attributes in contradistinction to negative, ungodly, corrupt, evil, violence and wickedness. It is only logical that God would create His supreme creation, Adam, and consequently His chosen people, White or light in appearance instead of colored or some dark hue. This precludes the notion that God would have given His chosen race the capability to develope or evolve into darker races. Yet this is the unholy subterfuge churches believe and teach. A study of scripture and recorded history makes it clear that it was this Adamic or Aryan race who were God's appointed builders of civilization and the carriers of Messianic tidings from the very beginning. The super-intelligence of Adamkind was genetically inherited by descendants who created the Great Pyramid, Stonehenge etc and can easily be identified as the world's greatest inventors.
Some will argue there's a difference between Genesis 1:27 and 2:7 because one is created and the other formed, although Isaiah 43:7 clarifies this contention. Genesis 2:7 merely describes the supernatural details of the first chapter. The Bible does not call Gen. 2:7 the eighth day of creation, it is merely a summary of God's composition of body, soul and spirit of the Adam-man of Gen. 1:27. We should elaborate on these three elements to understand the nature of the original man.
His body is made from the dust of the ground; "out of it (the ground) wast thou taken" Gen. 3:19; "He formed it (earth) to be inhabited" Isaiah 45:18; this dispels the fable that Adam was formed on another planet.
The same fablers teach the false doctrine of the 'immortal soul', that would never perish. However, Paul teaches that without the resurrection of Christ those that "are fallen asleep (dead) are perished" I Corinthians 15:18. The word soul has several renderings and means: a breathing creature, implies self-conscious life, personality. The Hebrew word for soul is nephesh and is applied to Adamkind as well as animals, but the soul of man has a vast content i.e. emotions, desires, affections (Ps. 42:1-6) than the soul of beasts. Nephesh refers to that physical life force which animates all creatures. It never means spirit and any translation that infers an immortal soul is extremely misleading.
Only God is Spirit. This is not to say that a living man cannot have the infilling of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of God to man is like what electricity is to a light bulb, but much more miraculous. That Spirit of God is the "breath of life" that was breathed into the nostrils of Adam. In a spiritual sense, the Spirit of God is divine inspiration; that intellectual part of man which knows; it is God-consciousness. The breath of life or Spirit of God elevated man high above the other races as confirmed in Deuteronomy 7:6. The White race is the temple for the Holy Spirit to dwell I Cor. 3:16. "The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God" Romans 8:16. It is God, the Spirit inside the spirit of man that we excel. Through this communion and fellowship with God we are gifted with the earthly dominion to develope agriculture, industry, government, civilization etc.
Adam had life without death within his grasp. The story of the garden of Eden explains man's progression from the innocence and state of bliss in which he was created to his present condition of knowledge and misery. It attributes the fall to ambition and self pride, whereby man is not merely content with obedience to the will of God but also desires the "knowledge of good and evil" which is the prerogative of God and which, in addition, has been expressly been forbidden to him. Immortality was a stake of the game, lost by the free choice of Adam for a knowledge which would bring him to an equality with God. Thus the story of paradise lost gives a verdict on our race and shows the distance between man's arrogance and God's absolute sovereignty.
A word study is in order so that we might rightly divide the literal from the symbolic in the much interpreted story of the fall of Adam and Eve. The garden of Genesis 2:8 is much more than rows of vegetables as the Hebrew word number 1588 signifies a fenced or fortified domain protected by God. It is located in the eastern section (literally meaning an entrance at the front) like that of the later Tabernacle and Temple. It is within a larger area known as Eden, which means delight or pleasure. The exact location is discussed in the article entitled 'The Flood of Noah'. Ezekiel 36:35 and Joel 2:3 gives us a clue that it may have been a city after a time of desolation. It abounded with lush vegetation and trees... with 2 trees of particular symbolism.
Sometimes trees are God's way of cataloguing the people of nations, whereby some are fruit bearing and others are not. In a spiritual sense it is the implementation of God's law as an example of righteousness that will heal nations. In verse 9, the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil and the Tree of Life may have been actual trees, but they represented things with a much deeper meaning.
Partaking of the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge, as Adam and Eve were warned and found out brings on death. It wasn't the literal fruit, but their disobedience that inflicted the curse. Violation of God's commands (laws) is sin and sin brings death. The Tree of Knowledge embodies the 3 manifestations of all that is in the world (I John 2:16) as these enticements are clearly presented in the temptation: 1. the lust of the flesh was accomplished in that "the tree was good for food"; 2. the lust of the eyes was fulfilled in that "it was pleasant to the sight"; and 3. the pride of life was achieved in Eve's belief that it was "a tree to be desired to make one wise" Genesis 3:6.
Some commentators equate this knowledge with the mystery of iniquity, man's attempt to deify himself, much of what preoccupies the ancient mystery religions and the more modern 'secular humanism'. Adam had no restraint other than this simple prohibition from this Tree of Knowledge of good and evil. This tree has no parallel in ancient near eastern traditions.
An interesting side-bar to the fall is the notion that the temptation of Eve has a sexual connotation in her experience with the serpent. There are several flamboyant extrapolations from this interaction loosely called the 'serpent seedline theory'. A literal hypothesis is problematic in credibility of a talking snake, a sperm producing devil or a genealogy of jews etc., making the mother of our race (Genesis 3:20) involved in bestiality and/or miscegenation. The sexual overtones may be on an entirely different level.
In the religions of the ancient near east, sexual differentiation was found in the pagan gods. Genesis places the institution of monogamous marriage as the ideal relation, although not very esteemed by the non-adamic cultures. The symbolism of the ancient serpent is represented as a nude goddess of fertility. This suggests that the fall of man is represented as, in some way, a deviation from sexual morality. Genesis 2:24 intimates a maturity of consummation (union in one flesh) as opposed to the discovery and use of sex during the fall itself. The presence of the serpent insinuates the fertility cults of the ancient world. The idea being that the cultists worship sex with representations of the god or goddess. It posed a radical deviation of Adam from God. The curse of Eve reduces her to the degraded position of becoming a goddess of pleasure and thus she loses the dignity and security which are hers as the monogamous wife.
Before the fall, Adam and his wife were immortal, innocent and not being conscious of their nakedness. After the fall, shame and knowledge of their carnality condemned them in their guilt. Since the only command was not to eat of the tree of knowledge, we can see that this was the precedent in many testings of God's people through third parties to see if they will obey Him or not. If you're a descendant of Adam, you are held responsible for your actions. The evident disorder in the existing world cannot be due to the inability of God to create a world worthy of himself; it must be attributed to the rebellion of man.
The serpent said, "Ye shall be as gods knowing good and evil" and Adam and Eve submitted to their own desires. The only real relevance of the tempter-serpent is that it is a third party in the narrative. Making the serpent something more than that denies the first command "not to have any other gods before me." As a matter of fact the misconception that satan, Lucifer or the devil are some sort of supernatural counterparts to God is an odious delusion and insult to true Christianity. The word satan was transliterated with an arbitrary capitalized s, and should have been translated adversary. It is the difference between a proper noun and a noun. It is the same technique pagans used to personify and thereby deify vice and virtues into gods.
Jesus went through the same kind of temptation and testing in the wilderness against an adversary as did Eve. The difference, of course, was that Jesus rebuked and overcame the fleshly desires to do his own will, and was ready to begin his mission of doing the will of the Father. Adam was not deceived like Eve (I Timothy 2:14). He was the first type of Christ who loved his wife so much that he partook of the tree, just like Christ voluntarily became sin on the cross for us. Now it becomes apparent that Eve's flesh and the adverse thoughts of her own mind were the voice from within stimulated by a beguiling agent. The Hebrew word for beguiled is nasha (#5377), meaning to mentally delude or morally seduce. Eve's mind, not her body, was beguiled as proven in II Cor 11:3. James 1:14 qualifies who is responsible for being tempted to sin. God knew the carnal nature of man would never permit him to admit that he was his own worst enemy. God, therefore accommodated us with a scapegoat, i.e. the serpent. Leviticus 16 allowed the use of a scapegoat to carry the sins of the people into the wilderness. Adam blamed Eve. Eve blamed the serpent. The serpent had no one to blame because it was just a dumb creature. As it received the blame for the fall, it received the least punishment; to go on its belly and eat dust. God decreed enmity between the woman's seed and the serpent's seed; in other words White women would be afraid of snakes and vice versa. One would follow the lie and carnal lust and the other after righteousness.
The other part of Genesis 3:15 is that Jesus "bruised the head of death and the grave by His resurrection" (the serpent symbolizes the lie 'you won't really die' which brought forth the wages of sin). The serpent, on the other hand, did bruise Christ's heel on the cross. God never gave the hominids, that existed before Adam, a law that stipulated judgement for transgressions. This is a plausible reason for why God created Adam and predestined his fall - in order to stop the sin that was already in the world. This is also why God "set the bounds" of the garden of Eden - to keep the hominids from the Tree of Life. Death was needed for the pre-Adamites so that sin in the world would not wax more gross. If Adam and Eve had not sinned, they would have lived forever. Revelation 22:14 says, "Blessed are they that do His commandments, that they may have right to the Tree of Life, and may enter in through the gates into the city." Notice only those obedient have a right to this tree, however, as it is written "there is none righteous, no, not one" Romans 3:10. Therefore, "for with the heart man believeth unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation" Romans 10:10.
By implication, the phenomenon of passing from mortal to immortal is the victory where death is conquered through Jesus Christ. The Tree of Life is eternal life and the reality of the resurrection, when the new covenant is perfected, i.e. God's laws written in our hearts and minds. The promise is found in I Cor. 15:51-57. God's plan is "Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven." Paradise was lost, but it will be found. The reconciliation of all things is not a unification of the races or behavior modification, but rather God's hand in ultimate separation of opposites and perfection of His Kingdom.
Interpreting the role of Cain in the drama as the singular excuse for the progenitor of evil is riddled with narrow explanation. John 8:44 is referring to Cain as well as the scribes and Pharisees whom Christ denounced. Nowhere in the Bible does it say the serpent physically murdered anyone. The devils today are Zionists, communists, antichrist jews etc. That old serpent called the devil and satan of Revelation 12:9 must comply with Revelation 1:1 of things which must come to pass. In other words, John's vision is events and things occurring after John saw them. Just another dragon out to destroy the woman-Israel-the White race. The story of Cain proves there were other races on the earth at that time and that is to whom he went as a fugitive and vagabond. Cain is the model race mixer that future generations of Adamic people should reject.
It was only Noah and his family that righteously rejected intermarriage with the other races. Cain was driven from the presence of God to the east where he knew (procreated) his wife (Genesis 4:17). Enoch, his first son, built a city. Obviously, there were more than 3 persons to inhabit and build a city; there had to be another race in that region.
Finally, we should clarify the expression 'beast of the field' as first mentioned in Genesis 2:19 because of the characteristics scripture provides. This suggests the presence and nature of other races. This is the best the Bible has to offer in mentioning the negro or mingled seed that factored into the Adamic story. The 'beast of the field' is described as having hands (Genesis 9:5, Exodus 19:12-13), covered with sackcloth and able to cry (Jonah 3:8), telling them not to be afraid (Joel 2:22), bring forth their young in our nations (Ezekiel 31:6), evil beasts removed from our nation (Ezekiel 34:25), whosoever lieth with a beast shall be put to death (Exodus 22:19), the beasts honor God (Isaiah 43:20). As you can see, these are not mere animals, nor are they rated equal with Adam. These beast-people are related to the nemesis of God's people and government throughout the scriptures.
