Six “sons of God” in Genesis 1 and 2, Christ is the 7th Son of God but incredibly special, obviously, as he is “the only begotten Son of God” which is, of course, entirely different, and he is raised in glorified form from the dead – so is #8 as well. (cf. Rev 17:10-11 for opposite picture in type).
First son is “Adam” who was created first on the day number one before anything else (Genesis 2:4-7; 1 Cor 15:45).
- He was placed inside the garden of Eden
- made of dust, became a “living soul”
- he walked with God
- there was the tree of life
- his job was merely to dress and keep the garden
- he was not allowed to eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil
- a huge river up-welled near the garden and flowed down into 4 directions over all the earth
- (therefore, the Garden of Eden was located in a high mountain plateau)
- Was made a man alone
- Adam woke to find Eve sometime after falling into a deep sleep at the end of day #6 (Genesis 2:21-23)(Awoke very early Sunday morning? John 20:1).
- Eve the “mother of all living” (Gen 3:20)
Five additional men were made on day number # 6 – Genesis 1:26-27.
- Told to go out into all the earth
- made these men “in the image of God”
- were blessed by God (Gen 1:28)
- Instructed to eat of all herbs and trees w/out restriction
- 5 men = 5 dominions: 1-Sea, 2-Air, 3-Cattle, 4-Earth, 5-Creeping things (Gen 1:26)
- job was to replenish the earth, subdue it, and take dominion
- one river went toward each quadrant of the earth
- The females were made right after the males
- No garden, no tree of life, no tree of knowledge of good and evil
The man #5 who is over creeping things, climbs up the mountain and (pursuing a snake?) “creeps” into the garden of Eden, and being possessed by the devil he seduces Eve and impregnates her with Cain.
At first Eve’s cycle was much longer than monthly (Gen 3:16) so she was open to being impregnated a second time by Adam at the same time. Cain was born first, fraternal twin Abel born second (Gen 4:1-3).
#5 Creeper man was cursed to be lame and reduced to crawling around on his belly (Gen 3:14).
Number 5 corresponds to Satan, the Fifth Cherub. Four holy cherubs remain around God’s throne (Ezekiel 1:5; 10:14; Rev 4:6, 5:6, etc), but the devil was also a cherub (Ezekiel 28:14) hence he was the Fifth cherub and his number is 5 (which is associated with death (Heb 2:14) in the Bible – e.g., Genesis 5:5; Acts 5:5; 1 Cor 5:5).
Son of God Adam and gentle Eve (along with Eden’s domesticated species of animals) were kicked out of the garden to go live in a harsh world dominated by the 4 other Sons of God and their 4 races of children who are built more wild and domineering (to accomplish their missions of subduing the earth)(and not as refined or intelligent as Adam who was created to dwell with God).
Eve’s son Cain killed his brother Abel and gets cursed with a black mark (a “character“) and moves to the land of Nod where he finds a wife and starts a city (Gen 4:16)(perhaps with Creeper’s wife since she was without a husband? cf. Lev 18:8; 1 Cor 5:1; Gen 35:22; 2 Sam 3:7; 2 Sam 16:22).
The line of Adam is fair-skinned and beautiful (Gen 6:1) so the other 4 Sons of God pursue the Adamite-women for marriage, producing “hybrid” type children who are giants (Genesis 6:4).
Since Cain inherited intelligence from his mother Eve and craftiness and brutality from his father “creeper” (Gen 3:1), his line begins civilization, founds the first city, does business with tents and cattle, creates music with harps and organ, and produces artificers in brass and iron, etc. (Gen 5:16-24).
Noah has a genealogy that goes straight back exactly 10 generations to Adam therefore he is “perfect in his generations” (Gen 6:9). Ham, Shem, and Japheth are all Noah’s sons (Gen 6:10) but only Shem and Japheth are brothers because they have a different mother (“Unto Shem also, the father of all the children of Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder, even to him were children born.” Genesis 10:21). Ham is the son of a black concubine of Noah – probably the sister of Tubal-cain named Naamah (Gen 4:22) – who did not get on the Ark (cf. Lot’s wife who was also left behind – Gen 19:26). Ham was cursed for assaulting Noah’s wife (called his “father’s nakedness” in Gen 9:23 and in Lev 18:8, 20:11) who was not actually related to him, but Japheth and Shem respected their mother and father.
Ham names his son “Canaan” (Gen 9:22) indicating his maternal relationship and that of his wife to Tubal-cain and Cain. Since Cain was marked with a black mark, and the curse became 7 times worse over the generations before the flood (Gen 4:24) the blackness enveloped them. His line would have been intermingling with the black line of men descended from the black Son of God.
This is because the four races of men match the 4 cherubs so they would have had to also correspond to the 4 colours given in Revelation chapter 6: white, red, black, and pale.
The origin of the 3 races is the Sons of God. The white race (Japheth) combines white and pale, the oriental (Shem) is red, and negro race (Ham) combines black and creeper. All 3 races also come down to us after the flood from Adam’s line through one man, Noah.
There are 6 portions to inherit, but lost is Eden and lost is Creeper’s portion. The remaining four lots of the earth (N, S, E, W) are divided amongst Noah’s three sons with the eldest son Japheth getting a double portion (N and W), then Shem gets East and Ham gets South.
[The lost inheritance of reigning over all from Eden – (and the power over hell and death -Rev 1:18) are Christ’s.]
Question: If this is so, how did the sin of Adam affect these other races if they are not his descendants? Why did they die since it says, “For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive” (1 Corinthians 15:22) ?
First, we can’t pre-suppose the false Catholic doctrine that says souls of innocent babies are automatically born in a state of damnation due to “original sin”. Babies are born with defiled flesh that is subject to fleshly death because of Adam’s sin, but they obviously have no moral culpability yet and their souls are born pure. The moral choice to sin against God arises later when we learn God’s commandments and yet, due to the weakness of our fallen flesh, we do that which is wrong against God, and our spirit becomes defiled, hence we “die” at that time, as St Paul explains:
“For I was alive without the law once:” [as an innocent/ignorant child] “but when the commandment came,” [growing up I became aware of God’s commandments] “sin revived,” [due to natural fleshy lusts] “and I died.” [I became guilty before God and therefore damned] “And the commandment, which was ordained to life, I found to be unto death. For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it slew me.” Romans 7:9-11.
The notion that nothing ever “died” in the flesh prior to Adam’s fall is not sensible – plants certainly die as a natural function, and anybody who refused to eat food would have naturally died, and there would have been no need for any “tree of life” if dying wasn’t the default rule.
By eating regularly from the tree of life in the garden man could live in his body of flesh forever – but this tree wasn’t even made available to the men outside the garden. (Gen 3:23-24). Evidently, if the original order had not been disrupted by the fall, all the men outside of Eden would have eventually had to come to Adam as their priest at the mountain of God in order to get right with God and receive from Adam fruit from the tree of life in order to live.
So sin brought “death by sin” in contrast to death by other things which would have been a death in innocence where the soul has no damnation or taint of sin and therefore can be renewed to live again without impediment. But a “death by sin” taints the soul with guilt – and that soul cannot live again but faces true death.
“Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world,” [world= the present world, not the original world] “and death by sin;” [true moral guilt before God] “and so death passed upon all men,” [men= all of Adam’s descendants] “for that all have sinned: (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law. Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.” Romans 5:12-14
So the Sons of God and their descendants also sinned and so they also died in the flesh. But the devil had already sinned long before in the first world (before Genesis 1:2), and his spirit of sin was in the “Serpent” who tempted Eve and she also sin before Adam sinned. And Adam’s sin affected all the world, not just his descendants. His sin affected all of nature and all the animals. So it is little wonder his sin also affected all the other races of men who were living outside of Eden.
Peter seems to make mention of the hoards of non-Adamites who perished in the flood:
“For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison; Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. 1 Peter 3:18-20; For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit. 1 Peter 4:6.
All the souls of men who are in flesh must get into the risen body of Christ by a spiritual new birth in order to escape death.
The five different races of the Sons of God only manage to survive after the flood because of their 5 women who joined themselves into the sixth line of Adam (cf. Matthew 25:2). They were (1) Noah’s wife, (2) Noah’s concubine, (3) Ham’s wife, (4) Shem’s wife, and (5) Japheth’s wife.
So the “image of God” (Gen 1:26) that was in them was preserved by their women to remain with us today present in earth’s 3 races. A time of purification occurred and an eventual adoption and merger into just Adam’s line through one man, Noah.
The world since Noah to now has been further purification, with particular attention at culling out Ham’s line (” And thou shalt consume all the people which the LORD thy God shall deliver thee; thine eye shall have no pity upon them: neither shalt thou serve their gods; for that will be a snare unto thee.” Deuteronomy 7:16; 2 Sam 8:2).
Much of the tribulation period will entail world-government eliminating dark skin races (Daniel 2:41-43; 7:5; 7:7; 7:19). This eugenics process lets the antichrist(s) rid the world of all its undesirables while also turning Cain’s curse of seven-fold retribution (Genesis 4:15) back against those same antichrist(s) powers so that they thereby condemn themselves to destruction at Christ’s return.
And then at the end of the tribulation and before the millennium commences, all the few surviving dark skinned men who are saved will be made into eunuchs “for the kingdom of heaven’s sake” lest they continue their seed any longer (Matthew 19:12; Acts 8:27; Isaiah 56:3; Jeremiah 39:17-18; Zech 14:21). At the end of the 1,000 year millennium the four corners of the earth are only filled with Japhethites from Gog and Magog (Rev. 20:8; Genesis 10:2; Ezekiel 38:2). A final purification happens when they later go up against Zion at the end of the millennium and all of them will get burned up, but 1/6th (17%) part of them remains at home and survive (Ez 39:2).
Following the great white throne judgment, that remnant of a remnant will enter into eternity and their descendants will replenish the entire universe, while the church rules and reigns over all with the Lord Jesus Christ in New Jerusalem, the capital city and new garden of Eden.
