The Adamites and Sons of God in GenesisPosted: April 30, 2017
From Genesis chapter 2:4-7 it appears that the man “Adam” was actually created on the third day and then later on the sixth day God made from his rib Eve (Genesis 2:25, Genesis 1:26-27). On the day God made Eve for Adam, it appears he also made 5 other human couples.
The 10 natural couples are described as god-like (Gen. 1:26-27), but Adam is described as a “living soul” and Eve as the “mother of all living” (Gen 2:7; 3:20).
Here’s the 5 men:
” And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” Genesis 1:26-27
The men are designated as having different dominions so we can named them after their trade: First: is the “Fisherman” and/or “Mariner”; Second: is the “Fowler”; Third: is the “Cattleman” and/or “Shepherd”; Fourth: is the “Hunter” and/or “Gatherer”; Fifth: is “Creep-man” and/or “Serpent-man” over all the creepy crawlies like insects, worms, snakes, reptiles.
These 5 men, with their wives, are made with god-like powers and sent out into all the world to take dominion over it (Genesis 1:26-28), whereas the man Adam is only an innocent gardener enclosed with his wife Eve in Eden (2:15). The 5 god-like men have no limit on the plants they can eat (1:29), but Adam may not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (2:27).
Obviously “Creepy” #5 is the weird one and has an occupation that becomes of no historical significance – he disappears. He must be the “subtle” one who, perhaps chasing some insect, creeps into the Garden of Eden, gets possessed by the spirit of the devil, tempts and seduces Eve.
There are also 5 cherubs named in the bible – 4 are around God’s throne as 4 living creatures (eagle, calf, lion, man – Ezekiel 10:14; Rev. 6) and the other one – #5 – is the devil (Ezekiel 28:14,16) and he is a reptile – a dragon:
” And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,” Revelation 20:2
Although Genesis 3 says that Eve is approached by the “serpent” that’s probably a man but called serpent in the same sense in which John called Jesus the “Lamb,” and in which Jesus called Herod a “fox,”and the many other instances where people are poetically alluded to as various animals.
That cursed “serpent” man is immediately turned into a belly-crawing reptile and stomped on, but by then his seed has already made its way inside Eve who later gives birth to Cain, his seed.
This suggests 6 distinct races of men which were designed to remain separate from each other (Lev. 19:19), but they ended up cross-breeding in the time before the flood.
Those first 5 men were “sons of God” because God was their immediate father and they were made god-like, and so when the serpent tempts Eve he makes reference to them also becoming “as gods”.
” For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” Genesis 3:5
After the demise of #5, serpent, there remained the other 4 original “sons of God” to divide dominion over the world (North, South, East, West). Adam’s line was kicked out of the garden and had to live in a world where these other 4 races had the dominion, along with the problematic descendants of Cain. Adam’s race produced fair daughters which were taken as wives by those four “sons of God,” giving birth to hybrid-giants. With Cain’s serpent line of murder and lying, the earth is filled the earth with violence.
” And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. 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. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.” Genesis 6:1-4
If this “reading between the lines” account of Genesis is correct, it explains the origin of the races of mankind. Presently all men are descended from Noah, who was perfectly Adamic (Genesis 6:9), but his wive(s) and his 3 sons’ 3 wives carried forward the genes from those other races. The race-mixing of the antedeluvian world had created a corrupt society filled with violence.
” The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.” Genesis 6:11-13
There is nothing particularly wrong with any of those 4 alone, except the #5 “Creep” genes of Cain that end up surviving in Ham’s lineage (from his mother and wife). The ‘serpent seed’ survives after Noah’s flood in Ham to fulfil the prophesies of Genesis 3:15 and 4:15. Eventually all the remainder of the serpent seed must be entirely destroyed.
This may be a novel way of looking at the early chapters of Genesis, and it certainly may not be entirely correct, but it is nevertheless an attempt to solve some apparent discrepancies and get better understanding by carefully reading and applying some creative thinking to overcome assumptions yet while maintaining the AV text as written as 100% correct. It’s a work in progress.
