The Flood and the Aftermath

It is amazing to me how few people will actually study the WORD of GOD using their own grey matter and the study tools available. Most people would not DREAM of letting some "great man of reputation" handle their checkbook for them, or tell them what posessions they are allowed to own or how they must live their personal lives. Yet these same people have no apparent problem with allowing "great men of reputation" to tell them how to believe God's Word. Knowledge of our Father's Word is the most important thing any of us can posess. Don't allow man to rob you of this blessing.

STUDY GOD'S WORD. YOU AND GOD MAKE A MAJORITY

We will cover the following points in this final part:

1) The presence on the earth of the various races BEFORE and AFTER the flood, including the Kenites.

2) The REASON for the flood.

3) The WAY God saved ALL races for posterity.

4) The character of Noah's offspring and the nature of Ham's son, Canaan

We are all familiar with man's account of the flood. Most have been taught by man's understanding that all of mankind except Noah and seven others were destroyed, and as a corollary to this, all of the present day races originated with Noah's children. Not only is this teaching absurd to anyone who will use their own brain, it is in itself AN ADMISSION BY CHRISTIANS THAT EVOLUTION IS TRUE. What is meant by this statement is that many of man's favorite commentaries state "environmental factors must have played a role in the present skin color and physical attributes of the many races." This is blatant admission BY "CHRISTIANS" that man mutates just like the evolutionists claim he does.

God's Word does not even conceive the thought that man physically mutates. I.e. Gen 2:21 "And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; (KJV) The word here translated 'ribs' is H6763, 'tsela' which is from the root word Strong's # 6760 tsala` (tsaw-lah'); a primitive root: probably to curve; used only as denominative from 6763, to limp (as if one-sided): KJV-- halt. (DIC) This is particularly interesting in light of the account of the creation of woman; For example, as we see in the creation of the sixth day peoples in Gen 1:27, both male and female were created by God, and at the same time. In the eighth day forming of Adam, however, it is quite clear that originally Adam was alone, and God made special plants and animals for him BEFORE the female EVE was brought forth. As we see in verses 2:21-22, apparently Eve was created from the SAME DNA that Adam posessed. This Hebrew word 'curve' thus brings to mind the familiar picture of the 'curve' present in the DNA double helix of all mankind. This DNA strand thus carries the genetic signature determining the physical characteristics of every subsequent generation of offspring. KIND AFTER KIND.

Why is he stressing this, you may ask. Is he some kind of racist? No, my friend, it was God who created the races. He loved each of them very much. He blessed them (1:28). God gave them all of His creation to possess. (1:29-30) God was very pleased with them, just as He created them (1:31). So am I. The reason for stressing the separate identity of the races and their creation before the flood is to present the fact that the races are still here. Somehow, they got thru.

It is important to understand the separate identity of the races to really see the lie put forth by man, who claims that sunshine and geography caused people to mutate and turn red, brown, black or yellow. Can you not see from God's Word the truth? In all of recorded history it is not known that ANY racial mutations have occurred. Don't be a part of the lie. Come out of babylon.

In parts 3 and 4 we dwelt heavily on the offspring of the serpent's seed, the Kenites. We traced them from their flesh father, Cain (Gen 4), to Gen 15:19, through Numbers (24:21), Judges (1:16), 1 Chronicles (2:55), Jeremiah (ch 35, all) to John (8:44) and finally to Revelation (2:9 & 3:9). We traced them by using the Strong's dictionary to see that the english words 'cain' and 'kenite' is the single Hebrew word:

Strong's # 7014 Qayin (kah'-yin); the same as 7013 (with a play upon the affinity to 7069); Kajin, the name of the first child, also of a place in Palestine, and of an Oriental tribe: KJV-- Cain, Kenite (-s). (DIC)

This fact is important to keep this in mind as we discuss the flood, because the WORD is clear: The Kenites somehow got on this side of the flood. Likewise the various races came through the flood. They are all with us today, aren't they?

Before we see how God's Word itself tells us how the kenites and the other races got thru the flood, (yes it is written right here in Genesis) let us first ask ourselves some questions.

God himself promised a sevenfold punishment on anyone who killed Cain; Gen 4:15 " And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him." He (God) even put a protective 'mark' on Cain to protect him! Given this fact,

1) Would God Himself then kill Cain or his progeny with the flood? Cain was already guilty of unrepentant murder and blasphemy in Gen 4:15. For God to kill Cain, God would have to go back on His Word. This is not a possibility, because;

2) God promised Cain's father (Satan) that God "would place enmity between the seed of the woman and his (Satan's) seed." (Gen 3:15) The word 'seed' is 'zara', or offspring - see Strong's H#2233. For this to be true, as all of God's Word is, BOTH the seed of Satan and the seed of the woman must exist on both sides of the flood, and does, in fact as we have already shown, to this day.

The Word clearly teaches that the Salvation offered by God through His Son Jesus is universally applicable to all mankind. Jesus is thus our 'Ark'. We will therefore see that God provided an ark for mankind via the hands of Noah, and this ark saved all mankind. In like manner, God uses teachers today, and sometimes in as strange a manner as the ark of Noah must have seemed to those peoples. The Word also states 'God never changes' (Ps 102:27), and that 'Jesus is the same forever' (Heb 13:8). Yes my friends, God is true. So is His Word. ALL of it.

Let us now look with open eyes into Gen chapter 6. We will first show the REASON for the flood. Although it is true that man was (and is also today) full of sin against God, there was a very special kind of sin being committed. Not only was man sinful, but the purity of Adams seedline was virtually gone. If this seedline were to become totally corrupted, then God's promise of Gen 3:15 would fail, for there would be none of Adam's seed left to fulfill the promise. Keep this thought in mind as we continue.

In the first two verses of chapter 6, we see the nature of the second attack on the seedline of Adam by Satan and his henchmen. We see that by the tenth generation (Noah's was the 10 th generation from Adam), the 'sons of God' had PHYSICALLY seduced the women of Adam's seedline to the point that only Noah's family's pedigree (We will later check out the words "perfect in his generations" in your Strong's) was unpolluted (6:9) by these fallen angels.

These 'sons of God' were not flesh, any more than the 'son of God' who Nebuchadnezzar saw walking with the 3 children in the furnace was flesh, (Dan 3:25) or the 'sons of God' mentioned in Job (1:6, 2:1, or 38:7) or Psalms (29:1, 89:6) were flesh. These were beings with spiritual bodies. These particular ones in Gen 6 were the spiritual messengers, or angels, of Satan. Jude, in verse 6, clearly points to an eruption of fallen angels, and states that their sin was 'of like manner as sodom' in Jude 7. In addition, the time of one eruption of the fallen angels is given as being 'in the time of Noah' in 2 Peter 2:4-7. Though spiritual beings, these 'sons of God' had very physical attributes. So did most all of the spiritual beings who visited man. Remember the three (Angels of God) who came to Abraham in the plain (Gen 18:8) and had supper with Abraham?

In Gen 6:4, we find that the words 'children' and 'became' are in italics, meaning that they are not in the manuscripts. When we leave them out and read the verse, we find that the offspring of these fallen angels and flesh women didn't "become" mighty men of old, they WERE the SAME as in old time. (Remember part 1 about Gen 1:2?). It was apparently a similar escapade by these fallen ones that caused the destruction of the 'world that then was' (2 Pet 3:6).

If you are getting confused, reread part 1 of this series before continuing.

Continuing, we see that these half-breed hybrids were an abomination to God, who had ordered His creation to reproduce 'kind after kind'. (Gen ch 1) They were giants, certainly both in wickedness and in physical size. They would certainly eventually exterminate ALL of Adam's children. God chose to intervene to destroy these giants, by a flood of water. Note that God would certainly have no need to destroy any of mankind as he created it, but only as it had become corrupt in it's kind. These 'giants' were a "creation" of Satan. They were not of God. God would not need to destroy mankind merely because of sin, because He had promised to send a Messiah. When the seedline that God promised would bring forth the Messiah became in danger of extinction, He acted to preserve His Word. He always will.

Notice verse 7 of Genesis 6. "And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them." Here God apparently says He will destroy the complete creation, man and beast. Did He do it? Of course not. The word 'said' is

Strong's # 559 'amar (aw-mar'); a primitive root; to say (used with great latitude): KJV-- answer, appoint, avouch, bid, boastself, call, certify, challenge, charge, + (at the, give) command (-ment), commune, consider, declare, demand, X desire, determine, X expressly, X indeed, X intend, name, X plainly, promise, publish, report, require, say, speak (against, of), X still, X suppose, talk, tell, term, X that is, X think, use [speech], utter, X verily, X yet.

In verses 8 and 9, we see that Noah alone was both 'just', and 'perfect in his generations', and thus found 'grace in God's sight'. These little words and phrases are gigantic. 'Just' is the Hebrew 'tsadowq', or ZADOK, the rough equivalent to the 'Elect' of the new testament. Noah believed God. The word 'just' is

Strong's # 6662 tsaddiyq (tsad-deek'); from 6663; just: KJV-- just, lawful, righteous (man). ***. Tsidoniy. See 6722. This word is from the same root as

Strong's # 6659 Tsadowq (tsaw-doke'); from 6663; just; Tsadok, the name of eight or nine Israelites: KJV-- Zadok.

The phrase 'perfect in his generations' means, quite simply, that Noah had not mixed with these fallen ones, and had a clean "pedigree" going back to Adam, 'the seed of the woman'. The Hebrew is two words,

Strong's # 8549 tamiym (taw-meem'); from 8552; entire (literally, figuratively or morally); also (as noun) integrity, truth: KJV-- without blemish, complete, full, perfect, sincerely (-ity), sound, without spot, undefiled, upright (-ly), whole. and,

Strong's # 8435 towledah (to-led-aw'); or toledah (to-led-aw'); from 3205; (plural only) descent, i.e. family; (figuratively) history: KJV-- birth, generations.

Now we should see a very special point. Because Noah was pure Adamic, his wife and children were also. They apparently were THE LAST ones of Adamic man that was of pure pedigree. (vv 9-10) If God's mission was to preserve the seedline in a pure sense until the birth of Messiah (Gen 3:15) THEN HOW COULD NOAH'S CHILDREN BEGET OTHER RACES? They obviously could not, else they could not have been pure to start with. God's Word says they were of pure linage. God also said KIND after KIND-- remember? ALL of NOAH's Children as well as their offspring were therefore pure Adamic. Believe God.

Ok. If this is the case, then HOW did the kenites and the sixth day creation get through the flood? Answer--- On the Ark. The same way any person will be saved today. On the ark of God, Jesus.

Look if you will at Gen 6:3 "And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. (KJV)

Notice the phrase 'he also is flesh'. It is most important for what follows. Man is declared to be flesh, which should be no big deal. EXCEPT-- Look at the instructions God gave Noah in Gen 6:19 "And of every living thing of ALL FLESH, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female." Not ONLY here, but in EVERY subsequent passage (7:16,7:23, 8:17), God repeats it: "TWO OF ALL FLESH", the male and his female.

Just like God combines all flesh in Gen 6:7 "And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.", He combines them when He instructs Noah. Why is it so hard to understand the truth? Why must man teach the traditions of the pharisees and the lies of the kenites? Why will people continue to believe them in the face of God's Word as well as common sense? I just don't know.

The flood story just would not be complete unless we refute another lie of man. What have you been taught from the cemeteries about the nature or skin color of Canaan, the son of Ham? What have you been taught about the nature of Ham's sin?

We see the first mention of this fellow Canaan in Gen 9:18. It seems seems out of context, placed here. Noah as we see in 9:25 curses this fellow Canaan because of what his father, Ham, did. Does this seem strange to you? It should the way man presents the story. Why should a son get the blame for what a father did? This is totally against God's Will. See the whole chapter of Eze 18, as well as Deu 24:16 "The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin." (KJV)

Well, God did not curse Canaan. Noah his grandfather did. Why would Noah curse this first born after all the death he had just witnessed?

As it turns out, this Canaan was an incestuous son, born of Ham and his mother, Noah's wife. Preposterous, you say? No my friend, truth.

Noah made wine, and got drunk. He was living it up after the year he had just been through, and Noah let down his guard. (Gen 9:20-21) Here we see a strange (to us) thing. Gen 9:22 "And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without. (KJV)"

What is the sin, we ask, dumbfounded. What is so sinful about seeing a drunk old man lying naked? Now the cemetery teachers will say things like, Ham 'laughed at him', or 'Ham was a homosexual', or 'Ham had no respect', or something equally absurd. The Hebrew phrase "to uncover your fathers nakedness" has a very special meaning. Let us look at Lev 18:8 "The nakedness of thy father's wife shalt thou not uncover: it is thy father's nakedness. (KJV)" Well, you say, that is perhaps a suggestion, but I don't know...

Ok, How about Lev 20:11 "And the man that lieth with his father's wife hath uncovered his father's nakedness: both of them shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. (KJV)"

Is that language plain enough?

According to the Word, Canaan was an incestuous offspring. OK, now let me ask you what RACE Canaan was? Was he black, red, yellow, white, brown, or adamic? If you answered 'adamic', go to the head of the class. Of course Canaan was adamic, because BOTH of his parents were, and they were just like Noah, 'perfect in their pedigree' (Gen 6:9-10) from Adam, the eighth day man.

Pay special attention to these "Canaanites", as you study the Word. They gave Abraham and Israel a lot of trouble for a long time. When Abraham came to the promised land God showed him, "The Caananite was then in the land" (Gen 12:6). The Israelites under Joshua destroyed many of them, but some joined with the Kenites, and had completely taken over the temple service by the time the second ADAM, Jesus came. They killed Him. They are joined with the ones today who give our true brother Judah a hard time, (Judges 1:16, Gen 12:6)

Rev 2:9 "I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. (KJV)"

Rev 3:9 "Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee."

Only these two of the seven churches recieved no condemnation from our LORD. Look at what they recognized. They knew who the kenites were.

Do you? Does your "church" teach about them?

As you continue on in your studies, don't be afraid to follow the lead of God's Holy Spirit. Use your mind and the original languages to expose the lies. Don't expect people in todays theological cemeteries to be pleased with your insight, though. Most will reject truth, just like they rejected Jesus in His day, and as Jesus said they would in our day.

God's Truth, my friends, is much stranger than man's fiction.

God Bless You!!!
