Just because you do not 'think' these teachings are right, or you don't "feel" these teachings are correct, does not make it so: reading 2Timothy 2:15, "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."

Our souls are taught and conditioned to perceive things the way the ruling class wants us to see them; usually from their point of view. Whether it be state, church, or family, people are continually injecting our souls with their thoughts. Authority figures speak and we follow without question. Yes we follow along like sheep in the fold until something jars our mind and we begin to question what we know. To this end we am not trying to convice you, we are only trying to get you to question what you know; to work and PROVE things to yourself.
In the beginning (Genesis 1:1 to 1:5) the light was created on the first day.
But wait - what is this light? We see that the sun, moon and the stars weren't created until the fourth day (Genesis 1:14). So what is this Light that was created on the first day? Could it be Knowledge?
Then we see in Genesis 1:26, a male and female being created on the sixth day to replenish the earth (Genesis 1:28). One of the definitions for replenish is to - 'fill up again'. Were there already human forms on the earth? Might this explain how Cain finds a wife in the land of Nod? (Genesis 4:16)
And then we read in Genesis 2:1, "Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them." That on the seventh day God FINISHED his work and rested from his work.
There we have it, the earth and all live forms finished; reading Genesis 1:27-1:28, "God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them, and God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, 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 saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good" - Genesis 1:31.
So there we have it, The Creation - finished, and it was VERY GOOD. But wait, here comes another story of the creation . . . or is it another creation?
Have you ever noticed in The First Book of Moses (which has been renamed Genesis), that there are TWO accounts of creation. The first one in chapter 1 and the second one in chapter 2?
In Chapter 1 the man and woman are created in the image of God to replenish the earth, but in Chapter 2 the woman is created from the man's rib: that the man was around for some time before the woman was created as a 'help meet' for the man because, "It is not good that the man should be alone" (Genesis 2:18).
Are you beginning to see the way in which we have been taught to think about the Bible, that in reading we may not have understood what is right there in black & white in front of our very own eyes; that we have been merely following along? Let us continue to look closer at this First Book of Moses.
If one wants to argue from the theologian point of view, which most souls will, then in Chapter 1 man is created as male and female, androgynous - or - there is a creation of a male and a female to replenish the earth. If the latter is the case, the creation of two separate human beings, one male and the other female, to replenish the earth, then how in Chapter 2 could the man be alone and a woman is being created as a help meet for him?
And why has God suddenly become LORD God at this very point in this First Book of Moses?
We would like you to consider for a moment that there may be two separate creations. The first creation is Other Earth, and the second creation is this Earth. We would like you to study and learn for yourself. Could this be the recorded account of TWO CREATIONS, as given to Moses?
In Chapter 1, the first creation, Moses has recorded the creation by God. In Chapter 2, the second creation, Moses has recorded the creation by LORD God. (Take note that LORD is capitualized - maybe as to set himself above God?) Whether it is LORD, YHWH, or whatever, a title has been added to God to accentuate his importance above all others.
Reading in Genesis 2:4, "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,
and 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." (Things were created somewhere BEFORE they came into existence.)
So this LORD God formed man from the dust of the ground and "breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul."
If the man and woman had been created in Genesis Chapter 1 by God, reading Genesis 1:26, "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness", then what is this soul creation of the LORD God in Chapter 2?
Remembering that swine breed swine, man begets man, and a heavenly Father brings forth a heavenly Son - Then isn't it plausable that this LORD God has created something after his own kind?
Let us take a side-bar here for a moment and read some Biblical passages to see just what kind of a 'being' this LORD God is.
A quick search of the concordance for this phrase, "jealous God", shows us that LORD God is a JEALOUS GOD! Reading Exodus 34:14, "For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name [is] Jealous, [is] a jealous God." Whose name is Jealous - it doesn't get any plainer than that. Read and you will see, this LORD God is a god of vengeance, anger, and all the evil of a evil heart. Truly like has created like. The creation is like its creator.
This is a warring God; a God of hatred and vengeance; a God of greed and anger. The Bible is a historical record of this warring god and his creation; as is this earth today full of war with death and destruction based on greed, hatred, vengeance and anger..... all spawned by the many religions of this LORD God. (Remember Babel when he "confound their language, that they may not understand one another" and scattered them all over the world.)
Open your Bible; use a concordance; you will find this knowledge for yourself.
This LORD God made his creation with a soul (heart), like-creating-like. Reading Genesis 6:5, "And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6:6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
Now when Jesus is called Good Master in Matthew 19:16, Jesus rebukes the man and says,"Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God." Jesus was well educated in the Jewish religion, and he never referred to LORD God (YHWH).
The good God is the God in Genesis 1:31 who finished his creation and "saw every thing that he had made was VERY GOOD."
So we ask the question again; Who is this LORD God? Why is every thought of the man's heart (soul) continually evil if everything was created VERY GOOD? And why next does this LORD God set out to destroy the whole creation? After all, it was only man that was evil, so why destroy all living things? Is this LORD God's creed, "An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth" - evil for evil? Does the dog bark, the cat meow, and LORD God's creation do what LORD God does? Is there an inherient design flaw in LORD God's creation? Is there an inherient design flaw in LORD God?
Now enter the Serpent. The cunning, crafty serpent. That ingenious, clever, mentally skillful, quick and resourceful serpent. That serpent which is keen in perception and possessing great power in constructing or creating new ways of accomplishing its crafty schemes. That sly serpent with its discerning insight and its technical understanding. That serpent which was created "more subtle than any other beast of the field." (Genesis 3:1) Why was this serpent created? Why was it given such great ability? Why did it approach the woman and not the man?
Why was the man and woman created not knowing good & evil? Why was the Tree of Good & Evil created if they were not to eat from that tree . . . that eating from the Tree of Knowledge would mean certain DEATH if they did eat therefrom? We read in Genesis 9:2 that the LORD God created many beautiful trees that were pleasant to look at and that were good for food. So why create this Death Tree? And what about the Tree of Life? Why didn't they just eat from this Tree and live forever?
However, they did eat from the Death Tree and just like the serpent said, "Ye shall not surely die" (Genesis 3:4) . . . AND Eve didn't die - neither did Adam. Did the Lord God lie to them? And why weren't they conscious of the Tree of Life? The LORD God had already told them they could eat of EVERY tree of the garden (which surely included the Tree of Life) - but they didn't. Why not?
Next we see that this LORD God becomes very afraid that they will eat from the Tree of Life and live forever, but only after the "eyes of them both were opened." Only AFTER they ate from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil were they capable of eating from the Tree of Life. So we see very quickly that the LORD God didn't want them to eat from the Tree of Life and live forever, and so the LORD God placed a flaming sword, which turns every way, to keep the 'way' of the Tree of Life.
This LORD God was very concerned, reading Genesis 3:22, "And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever."
You see, this LORD God didn't want them eating from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil because he didn't want them learning of the Tree of Life. LORD God had lied to them; they didn't die: and now LORD God had to stop them from eating from the Tree of Life. (A liar from the beginning.)
You see the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil was a tree of Knowledge. And without Knowledge they did not know they were naked, and without Knowledge they could not understand about the Tree of Life. But with their new ability of understanding through Knowledge, they could learn of (eat from) the Tree of Life and live for ever. But the LORD God didn't want his creation to "become like one of us."
And so begins the never ending story of Adam & Evil. The never ending search for the Tree of Life, the Holy Grail, the Fountain of Living Waters; the goal of attaining immortality, of not having to die the 'second death'.
The creation of man and woman went from innocent little children to sinful souls of desire - "if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him." (Genesis 4:7) And thus was created this world of Greed and Anger by LORD God, the LORD God whose name is Jealous.
Again, remembering that swine breed swine, man begets man, the deaf and blind join with their own kind, and a heavenly Father brings forth a heavenly Son: did LORD God create something of his own kind?.
Reading Genesis 6:1 "And it came to pass, when men (hominoids) began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 6:2 That the sons of God (the Adamic race) saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. 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. 6:4 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."
And then reading Genesis 6:5, "And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6:6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 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. (A murderer from the beginning.) 6:8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD."
But wait a moment. We look back to Gesesis 1:31, where Moses says, "And God saw every thing he had made (including man), and, behold, It was very Good." Not just Good, but VERY Good. And now we read in Genesis 6:5 that the LORD God - "saw that the wickedness of man (his creation) was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart (soul) was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD (God) that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart." (LORD God felt regret in his own heart (soul) which caused his mind to change and he wanted to destroy EVERYTHING, even the beasts, creeping things and fowls of the air. But why the animals? The animals did nothing wrong. Are we gaining an insight into this LORD God and his own evil heart; like-creating-like?
And so the LORD God in anger destroyes everything but Noah and the few animals taken into the Ark. and reading Genesis 8:21, "and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for manís sake; for the imagination of manís heart is evil from his youth" You see, the flood did not solve the design flaw, for the imagination of a man's heart is evil from his youth.
Notice that man's heart is not evil from childhood, but from his Youth - puberty; when the serpent force quickens the soul. (Quickening: make alive; to come to be enlivened; to come to live; to enter into a place of active growth and development; seeds quickening the soul.)
Then once again we see in Genesis 9:1, this LORD God is instructing Noah to "replenish the earth." For Noah was of the generation of Adam, "a just man and perfect in his generations;" meaning he and his family had not defiled themselves with the existing hominoids.
And so it goes again until we reach Genesis 11:1 to 11:9 where we see the generation of Adam reaching to be as the LORD God, and the LORD God coming down to see that, with their 'imagination' they could reach heaven, and so the LORD God says, reading Genesis 11:7, "Let US go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speach." And thus it is that the LORD God did confound the language of ALL the earth and did scatter them abroad upon the face of ALL the earth.
So here is the LORD God again afraid of the man becoming as one of (US).
And so goes all the remaining stories of the Old Testament, the continuing battle of Adam & Evil, of the Adamic race trying to reach heaven but the LORD God keeping them earth bound where he can be their God, and they can worship Him and obey Him.
LORD God is not destroying and holding man back because of the 'evil in man's heart", for as we have seen back in Genesis 6:5, LORD God "saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually." LORD God already knew that this evil heart was a part and parcel of his creation. No the Lord God destroys all through the old testament whenever man stops worshipping him. Which brings us across time through many generations to Jesus speaking in the temple on the mount of Olives with the scribes and Pharisees, who say to Jesus in John 8:33, "We be Abrahamís seed, and were never in bondage to any man . . . Abraham is our father." The Pharasies say, "We be not born of fornication (which means breeding outside the linage of Abraham); we have one Father, even God."
To which Jesus replies in John 8:42, "If God were your Father, ye would love me (understand me): for I proceedeth forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. Why do you not understand my speach (this is a RHETORICAL QUESTION, asked merely for effect with no answer expected) even because ye cannot hear my word."
Then Jesus plainly tells the Pharisees who they are in John 8:44, reading, "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning 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." (This is LORD God: they know not what they worship.)
Yes, we have become the children of the LORD God - but we can become Born Again. Jesus and the messengers continue to come and show us the WAY. Reading Luke 9:49, "And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us. And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us."
And Jesus says, "I came down to the world of the dead from the world above. I came down to dwell with you so that you in turn might dwell with me. If you wish to come with me, come!"
