CHAPTER 9--The 6th and 8th Day Creations
This fruitful place that was once lush with vegetation and full of animal life has now been destroyed by water, thus ending the first earth age and Genesis 1:11 begins the process of renewing the surface of the earth for the beginning of the second earth age:
Genesis 1:11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
Our Father, having made the decision not to destroy one-third of all His children, will now begin to populate the earth with the human race.
In the first heaven/earth age, we were all in spiritual bodies but now that has changed. In this present heaven/earth age, we will be in flesh bodies. We will be mortal; these flesh bodies will only last for a limited number of years. This is the testing ground, if you will. Here we will decide whether we will follow Satan or Christ. If you have ever wondered why you are here, why you were born, this is the reason.
Every soul that our Father created, with the exception of the Heavenly Order that we talked about in the first chapter, all the souls that are called the “host of heaven”, the angels, with the exception of Satan/Lucifer, will come through this life as a human being.
It will be a natural, orderly process. Each egg within a mothers’ womb will be fertilized with the male sperm and at that very moment of conception, the Creator will breathe the breath of life into that unborn fetus. He will put the soul and spirit of one of His children that He created in the first heaven/earth age into each and every embryo and this will be repeated over and over again; womb to womb.
Many people wonder and some even dispute the fact that our Father had two creations of man. The “man” that was created on the sixth day:
Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image,
This is the first creation of humankind. It is quite obvious that this creation also involved the creation of woman,
Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
This creation was the beginning of the massive multitude of people within which He would place a soul and spirit from the “hosts of heaven.” Remember, because of the katabole’, all souls will pass through this world in a flesh body and since the angels of heaven number into the billions it will take billions of mankind within which to place those souls and spirits.
Some people seem to take offense to the statement that all the races were created on this day but I don’t see how it could have happened any differently. This sixth-day creation was given the charge of replenishing the earth:
Genesis 1:28….Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth….
And since we have all peoples of all races on this earth how could it have happened any other way?
The eighth-day creation involved only one man:
Genesis 2:7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
It will not be until verse 19 in this chapter that we will learn that his name is Adam. The 6th-day man was created but this eighth-day man was “formed” and in the Hebrew this word means, to squeeze into shape as a potter would a clay vessel. This is a special creation. This particular man would be the beginning of the Hebrew race and he will be called the “first Adam”.
Let’s think about something for a minute. When the katabole’ was over there was a great hatred towards our Father from Satan. He had been defeated; his attempted takeover was a failure. And since our Father loves all of His creation it probably caused Him great sadness that Satan would even try to take control of the Mercy Seat because, after all, He had made Lucifer/Satan in the full pattern of beauty. He was a splendid creation.
Satan is fully aware of what our Father is planning to do and he, too, is supernatural. Not that he can create as our Father can but certainly he wields power that is equal to the angels, Michael and Gabriel, and possibly greater.
Even though he has been sentenced to a spiritual death on the Day of Judgment he has a long, long time within which to try to corrupt and destroy as many souls as he can before his own destruction. And he has a lot of help in accomplishing this because fully one-third of all the souls in heaven followed after him and they are following him to this very day.
When our Father created Adam, Satan knew that his greatest adversary, Jesus Christ, would come through this bloodline and throughout the rest of Scripture we will see his every attempt to destroy Christ and keep Him from offering salvation to all that will accept it.
Our Father will allow Satan the freedom to attempt to deceive all of His creation; how else can we be tested in this heaven/earth age if he doesn’t have that freedom? Our Father knew this, of course, which is the reason, I believe, that after He created humankind, that He formed Adam, the precursor of Jesus Christ. Our Father knew that Satan would be so powerful that without supernatural help, we would all succumb to the deceitfulness of Satan:
Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
And those “very elect” are those that have the seal of God in their forehead, they stood tall and true during the katabole’. Our Father is preparing to give us protection and salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ and as powerful as Satan might be, as vicious as he may attack us, Our Lord has said:
1st Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
The focus of the rest of the Bible, as far as human beings are concerned, will be on this man Adam and his descendants. They are the Hebrew race. Some folks take offense to that fact but it cannot be changed regardless. They are the Hebrew nation. You can make the nationality of Santa Clause to be black or red or white or yellow; I don’t really care. Suit your own desires. But the plain, simple, irrefutable fact is that Jesus Christ, the ultimate descendant of Adam, is of the Hebrew race; He is a Jew.
To say that the rest of God’s creation, those created on the sixth day, are Gentiles is true to a certain extent. The word “gentile” originally was used to designate those nations of peoples of non-Jewish descent with the Jews referring to themselves as “God’s Chosen People” because of the covenant that Father established with Abraham:
Genesis 12:2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
Over the next several hundred years the Jews developed a sense of righteousness or exclusivity toward the Gentile. Marriage to a Gentile was strictly forbidden although over time the restrictions were relaxed, especially if the Gentile were to convert to Judaism.
Throughout the Scriptures, especially in the Old Testament, our Father used people, the Jews, and Gentiles alike, as “types” of people through which we should all study and learn. After Christ died on the cross and offered salvation to all who would believe and accept, this included the Gentile as well and eventually, we would all be grafted into that tree that would be Christ.
It seems ironic that most of the Gentile world today accepts Christ as the true Messiah while the Jews, in part, are still waiting for Him to come. In fact, the end of this dispensation will not occur until 12,000 of each of the 12 Tribes of Israel receive the seal of God in their foreheads, they will believe that Jesus is the Lord and Savior:
Revelation 14:1 And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads.
How does Jesus Christ feel about the Gentiles and the Jews and the other nations?
Galatians 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
