What Really Happened In Genesis?
What Really Happened in Genesis? Darkness were "sons" existing before Adam.
Greetings to All,
"All nations before Him are as nothing and they are counted to Him less than nothing, and vanity." (Isa. 41:17).
vanity = desolation. Heb. tohu. Same as "without form" (Gen. 1:2).
"The city of confusion is broken down: every house is shut up, that no man may come in." (Isaiah 24:10).
confusion = desolation. Heb. tohu. Same as "without form"
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
John 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
John 1:3 All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made.
Gen. 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
<<< millions of years later, IMHO >>>
It (the earth) was not created "tohu" (Isa. 45:18), but became "tohu" (Gen. 1:2; 2 Peter. 3:5,6). "An enemy hath done this" (Matt. 13:25, 28, 39). And man (Adam) in like manner became ruined (Gen. 3.; Ps. 14:1-3; 51:5; 53:1-4; 53:1-3; Ecc. 7:20; Rom. 7:18).
Gen. 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void and darkness was upon the face of the deep.
And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
And the earth was filled with vanity, void of the Word and the sons of Satan were upon the presence "of the deep". And the Spirit "moved upon the face of the waters" (nations, peoples then at that time). These people were made of flesh which Adam/Eve became after they were formed and made... after the fall. Because when we go to Gen. 6 it says: "My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that HE ALSO is flesh" (Gen. 6:3). First why say, HE ALSO is flesh, if this was not a new condition from the others on the earth. Notice God did not say they also are flesh or "them" but it is written "he". If it were men rather than "he" it would of been written "for that they also are flesh"... Therefore it says Adam became like the others. What others? Those of darkness in Gen. 1:2. So what God is saying then is this: "My Spirit (breath of life) shall not always remain in Adam, for that he also is flesh like the others."
Gen. 1:3 And God said "Let there be light:" and there was light.
John 1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
The Word was sent to be a light in "darkness" of Gen. 1:2. "and the darkness comprehended it not".
Gen. 1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
The light is the tree of life, and the darkness is the tree of knowledge of good and evil which stand in the midst of the garden (Gen. 2:9).
So here in this beginning we see God separating the light from the darkness and also in the ending we see likewise.
Now the above Gen. 1:2 - 1:4 is an existance of Satan, his sons of "darkness" including nations "waters".
Gen. 1:5 is then part of that "first day". And it is written about the light "day" and the night "darkness". The new man and the old nations and the new man is... guess who? "Adam". And Adam fell when he listened to the "prince" of this world Satan. And on that day Satan became king having dominion and power etc etc (Matt. 4:8,9). Adam was meant to be king and ruler of all the earth the "light" of the earth, who was formed from the earth with "the breath of God" in him... making him a living soul not one of death.
The Garden was like a palace or a temple compared to the outside of the Garden. God's presence was there "the tree of life" and Satan's presence was there "the tree of knowledge of good and evil"... who by the way was good and then evil due to pride.
Because the "waters" nations and the darkness could not comprehend the light. "Adam" was formed to be that which could be seen of the Light so that man could by sight comprehend the light. But in the process Adam fell. Rather than darkness seeing the light, Adam became part of the darkness.
For Adam as each one of us it was and could be said:
John 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
But due to the fall, Christ was then sent by the Father, Who was indeed the LIGHT (John 1:4)of many.
And that is why then in Gen. 3:15 God speaks about the "serpent's" "seed". Because the earth was filled with a people of pride and vanity. After the fall, Satan was king but future the Lord God will be KING of kings.(Rev. 11:15). And like the stories of old the kings will be wiped off the face of the earth who are not of God.
Now we can move ahead to Gen. 6:1 "And it came to pass, when men (Adam) began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them (Adam and Eve),
Gen. 6:2 that the sons of God (sons of darkness in Gen. 1:2) saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
And because of this they became "flesh" --one flesh-- with the sons of darkness, who were the "sons of God" until pride and vanity were found in them. Prior to this only Cain left and married his wife from a land east of Eden. (Gen. 1:16). Cain becoming flesh with his wife of not his own line. Whereas Noah was perfect in his generations.
Notice there is a split then in John 1:5 and verse 6 and I believe there is also a split in Genesis 1:5 and verse 6. I also see a there is a split between Gen. 1:1 and 1:2.
