Does the horn of plenty symbolically represent the biblical garden of Eden.

The writings contained within the book of Genesis are about to tell us that God began His rest after the sixth series of events. He then made the seventh day holy - Saturday - so that we should learn that the human body needs complete rest at least one day per week. It makes a lot of sense that God realized that there are some people who earn their living through manual labour. Therefore, we can honestly say that the human body needs complete rest at least one day per week, especially for those who earn their living through physical work.

Thus heaven and earth were completed with all their mighty throng. On the sixth day God completed all the work he had been doing, and on the seventh day he ceased from all His work. God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on that day He ceased from all the work He had set Himself to do. This is the story of heaven and earth when they were created. Genesis 2 : 1 to 2 : 4

The writings of Genesis have just told us that at the end of the sixth day, which was on a Friday, God ceased all His work and rested. Genesis also tells us that God blessed the seventh day which is Saturday.

We all know that the seventh day of the week falls on a Saturday, then why did our Christian religious leaders make Sunday as the holy day?

I questioned a religious teacher I knew well and the answer that he gave me was the proof that he only understands what he has been told by his teachers. He said to me that the Christian church made Sunday as a holy day because the sun was created on the first day of the week and the church wanted to dedicate that day as the holy day. However, I pointed out to him that the sun was created only on the fourth day as it is mentioned in the writings of Genesis. He answered me by shaking his head in a fashion that shows puzzlement. I suspect that the real reason why the Christian church changed the holy day from Saturday to Sunday as a holy day is because they did not want the Christians to worship God on the same day as the Jews.

The Jewish religion is the only religion that seems to be observing the day which God requested to be the holy day. In other words, God has made Saturday holy because it is supposed to be a day of complete rest. It is interesting to note that the Christians made Sunday as the holy day and that the Moslems have made Friday as their holy day. Perhaps God wanted the day of rest to be changed from time to time and for reasons that only He knows.

As we continue with our research concerning the topic of creation, we shall soon discover that the remainder of the story, as described in Genesis, explains the spiritual aspect of God's greatest creation which is man and woman.

Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life. Thus the man became a living creature. Then the Lord planted a garden in Eden away to the east, and there He put the man whom He had formed. The Lord God made trees spring from the ground, all trees pleasant to look at and good for food ; and in the middle of the garden he set the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Genesis 2 : 7 to 2 : 9

What does it mean when it says in the writings of Genesis that God created man from the dust of the ground? Scientists are telling us that within the human body there are small traces of various elements which are also contained in the soil. So traces of many of the elements which are contained in the earth are also present in our own physical bodies but in very small quantities. That is what Genesis is actually telling us, is it not?

Have you noticed that Genesis says that man is a creature, a living creature. Let us remember that saying because we will encounter that word again but later on in our searches for greater truth. The garden that is mentioned in Genesis represents an emplacement that is unknown to man on this planet, the reason is that it never existed on this planet. The garden of Eden can be represented symbolically by the horn of plenty which is full of many kinds of palatable foods.

Genesis is also telling us that the garden of Eden was in the east. Scientists have discovered that human life began on earth in an eastern country and, this time, their statements are definitely in agreement with the sayings of those writings. However, that saying is no proof that the east mentioned is located on our planet, the earth. We shall soon discover some even greater truths which will tell us where the garden of Eden is actually located.

In the second chapter of Genesis, we read that God planted the tree of life in that unknown emplacement (garden). It is a symbolic saying because the tree of (spiritual) life which is mentioned represents God's prophet who is the teacher and the giver of spiritual life. In other words, the tree of life is God's prophet, he is a necessity for mankind who can only discover God through the teachings of those prophets.

The tree of the knowledge of good and evil represents the human being because mankind, as human beings, are capable of doing both good or evil. Therefore man and woman are the mentioned tree of good and evil. That tree can also represent our world which is the earth and where good or evil deeds may be committed by anyone. All of those sayings are very symbolic and require a bit of thinking before logical answers can be found. It is suggested that you utilize deep meditation when searching, God will acknowledge you as a searcher of the truth and will eventually allow you to discover true answers.

There was a river flowing from Eden to water the garden, and when it left the garden it branched into four streams. The name of the first is Pishon; that is the river which encircles all the land of Havilah, where the gold is. The gold of that land is good; bdellium and cornelians are also to be found there. The name of the second river is Gihon ; this is the one which encircles all the land of Cush. The name of the third is Tigris; this is the river which runs east of asshur. The fourth river is Euphrates. Genesis 2 : 10 to 2 : 14

We have to remember that whatever exists here on earth also exists in the celestial world because that world is exactly like a parallel world with the exception that it is a spiritual world and not physical in nature, it is more beautiful than can possibly be imagined. The river that is flowing from Eden in the heavenly world is probably the same river which is also mentioned in the writings of Revelation. Let us review that saying of Revelation which is contained in those writings.

Then he showed me the river of the water of life, sparkling like crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the lamb down the middle of the city's street. On either side of the river stood a tree of life. Revelation 22 : 1-2

The writings contained in Genesis are trying to emphasize to us that life began in the east where those rivers mentioned are supposed to be located. However, there is no such location called Eden that has ever been discovered on this planet. Therefore, we have no choice but to say that it is a reference to an unknown location that exists somewhere else.

Are all of the rivers, which are mentioned, existent today with the possible exception of the fourth, the Euphrates. Then what does it all mean? We have to analyse those writings with an open mind if we wish to discover the answer to that puzzle. Let us say that the garden of Eden is a location that exists in another world and that all forms of life that may be found on earth most likely came from another world originally.

Let us also say that, perhaps, the garden of Eden exists in the spirit world where the spirit of man originated from. So we can honestly say that man has always been man regardless of any changes that he may have gone through in his long evolution to the present human beings which we are today. It was most definitely God's wishes that we would, someday, be the kind of humans which we are today, but only after having gone through a necessary evolutionary period.

We can honestly say that the creation of man is similar to a refining process and that God is the Creator of that process. He is the great Architect and the great planner behind this grandiose plan. He is the Great Mind, He is the Holy Spirit and He is also the Greatest of all the existing Spirits. He is affiliated with seven other powerful Spirits, who are mentioned in the writings of Revelation and who all work together in unison.

Scriptures tell us exactly what I have been telling you. It says that God created man strait forward but that some scientists have invented other ways to explain where man came from. The following biblical verse gives us the proof that man is not the descendant of any prehistoric creature such as the family of the great apes.

This alone I have found, that God, when He made man, made him straightforward, but man invents endless subtleties of his own. Ecclesiastes 7 : 29

Those were the words of Qoheleh who was the son of the historical king and prophet mentioned the old Testament and whose name was David.

The following verse gives us the proof that the garden of Eden, which was previously mentioned, is not of this physical world.

The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to till it and care for it. He told the man, "You may eat from every tree in the garden, but not from the tree of knowledge of good and evil ; for on the day that you eat from it, you will certainly die." Genesis 2 : 15-16-17

As we mentioned previously, the garden of Eden is not part of the physical earth as we know it. It would seem that The garden of Eden belongs to a world which exists in another dimension within his world. In other words, the garden of Eden belongs to another dimensional world which we humans are not capable of comprehending at the present time. That other dimensional world is capable of seeing our world, as if they were looking through a mirror, but it is unable to interfere with it in any way whatsoever.

Let me give you an example : I am certain that the rocks and the dust which we often call the ground, the mineral kingdom, are not aware of the vegetable kingdom which it gives life support to. The vegetable kingdom is also not aware of the animal kingdom which feeds upon him. However, it is aware of the mineral kingdom which it feeds upon.

In the same manner, mankind is not aware of the world of the spirit which we have been told exists within this world. As we mentioned previously, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil is the physical body of man and also represents the earth where man dwells. The story is actually telling us that the spirit of man existed in the inner world first, in the spirit world. The spirit of man was forbidden by God to project himself into the physical world, he was forbidden to project and attach himself unto physical man on earth.

Have you noticed that God addresses man and not woman? Can we discover the reason? The answer is simple, God is actually addressing mankind which consists of both man and woman. God said that if the spiritual man projected himself into the physical world of man that he would surely die spiritually. In other words, if he ate of the tree of the knowledge of good or evil. Man did disobey his God and did die spiritually but not physically.

The following quotations have been taken from the second chapter of Genesis. They are very symbolic and great attention must be taken when studying them. The ideas being presented must be analysed thoroughly, otherwise the truth will pass us by and we will never discover the meaning of those given ideas.

Then the Lord God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will provide a partner for him." So God formed out of the ground all the wild animals and all the birds of heaven. He brought them to the man to see what he would call them, and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. Thus the man gave names to all cattle, to the birds of heaven, and to every wild animal ; but for the man himself no partner had yet been found. And so the Lord God put the man into a trance, and while he slept, he took one of his ribs and closed the flesh over the place.

The Lord God then built up the rib, which He had taken out of the man, into a woman. He brought her to the man, and the man said: "Now this at last - bone from my bones, flesh from my flesh! - this shall be called woman, for from man was this taken."

That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and the two become one flesh. Now they were both naked, the man and his wife, but they had no feeling of shame towards one another. Genesis 2 : 18 to 2 : 25

Should you attempt to comprehend that story literally you will soon discover that it is an impossibility because it is much too abstract for human understanding. It is describing two worlds at the same time - the inner world of the spirit and the outer world which is the physical world that we presently live in.

However, that story can be explained by utilizing other methods. The majority of the people can understand this fascinating story if they take the time to study its given ideas. The first man which was created was alone and probably felt sad and very lonely. So God created many of the animals to keep him company. He also said that He would create a partner for man which He later calls woman.

The next clue given us is that God decided to create all the wild animals and all the birds in the air before He created a woman. He says that He also created those animals from the various elements which may be found in the ground. He created them in the same manner which He utilized to create man.

The following biblical verse said that God brought to man all the animals which He created and told him to name each and everyone of those creatures. We know that man eventually gave names to all the animals which exists on this planet but I doubt that it was so at the beginning of creation because there were no need for names at that time. Man had not yet learned to read or write and, in those days, he probably communicated with others of his kind by sign language or by telepathy. So we have to say that God meant that, someday, man must name all the animals which He, the Lord God, had created.

God says that He then put the singular man to sleep and operated on him by removing one of his ribs. The story goes on to say that God built a woman from around man's rib which He had removed from him. After He awakened the man, He brought the woman to him to be his wife. Is it true that man has one less rib than woman does? So the creator is most certainly the greatest scientist of all times to be able to carry out such a task. It would seem that He created many human robots which are capable of reproducing themselves because they are made out of flesh and blood instead of metal. We human robots recharge our batteries by eating three times a day and by sleeping at night. We are a chemical factory. We get programmed by our parents who teach us how to talk, how to walk and how to run. Then we get programmed some more by going to school. Some excel others by having a more sophisticated program, more education. Then we continue to program ourselves for the rest of our lives by continuously learning. Effectively, we are human robots who are capable of continuing to program ourselves and to react on those programs.

The story goes on to say that it is the reason why a man leaves his parents when he becomes of age, it is to reproduce his own kind with his partner woman. The story also says that when the first man and the first woman were created they were naked but felt no shame. There was no reason for them to feel any shame because all the animals were also naked and they felt no shame so why would the first man and the first woman feel shame. They had yet to be taught anything so they were probably ignorant of shame at that time.


The following words describe to us the next happenings to the first man and to the first woman created by the Almighty God in order to populate our planet which is the earth. Let us not confuse what we are about to read because it is actually mentioning the spiritual creation of man and woman in a world that exists within this world. If we begin by reading the story, then we shall attempt to analyse its content in order to discover its hidden secrets which mankind should have discovered long ago.

We have been hindered from discovering the truth because we have listened to our spiritual teachers telling us to believe only in what they told us to believe. Teachers of religion have had the tendency to tell us, the people, that if we don't believe in what they tell us, that we are not capable of discovering the truth. Such outward lies and such dictatorial methods of teaching. It is the proof that those teachers were trying to keep us under their dominating ways. Everyone is capable of discovering the truth if he or she takes the necessary time to search for that truth.

The serpent was more crafty than any wild creature that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, "Is it true that God has forbidden you to eat from any tree in the garden?" The woman answered the serpent, "We may eat the fruit of any tree in the garden, except for the tree in the middle of the garden ; God has forbidden us either to eat or to touch the fruit of that; if we do, we shall die." The serpent said, "Of course you will not die. God knows that as soon as you eat it, your eyes will be opened and you will be like gods knowing both good and evil." When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good to eat, and that it was pleasing to the eye and tempting to contemplate, she took some and ate it. She also gave her husband some and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened and they discovered that they were naked; so they stitched fig-leaves together and made themselves loincloths. Genesis 3 : 1 to 3 : 7

If we wish to attempt to explain the above story, word for word, we shall discover that it is an impossibility because it was not meant to be understood in such a fashion. The story is very symbolic and many wonderful interpretations may be derived from it. The symbolic serpent represents attachment to the physical things of this world. The first spiritual man and the first spiritual woman existed first in the inner world where they could see everything which takes place in this physical world. The tree that was in the middle of the garden represents the physical man or the physical woman. He and she are capable of doing both good or evil, therefore they are the tree of good or evil.

The two inner world spirits, man and woman, were tempted by the beauty of our physical world so they projected their spirits and attached themselves to two human bodies in our world of materiality, thus they became two living souls. Have you noticed that those two spirits, when they were created in the spirit world, were naked and felt no shame. However after they projected themselves into human bodies, they noticed their nakedness and they had to make some loincloths to cover themselves. It is very likely that the spiritual forms of man and woman are probably different in the spirit world than they are on earth. In the spirit world, in paradise, their forms are not physical but probably more like shining stars, some outshining others.

The man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden at the time of the evening breeze and hid from the Lord God among the trees of the garden. But the Lord God called to the man and said to him, "Where are you?"

He replied, "I heard the sound as you were walking in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked, and I hid myself."

God answered, "Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree which I forbade you?" The man said, "The woman you gave me for a companion, she gave me fruit from the tree and I ate it." Then the Lord God said to the woman, "What is this that you have done?" The woman said, "The serpent tricked me, and I ate."

Then the Lord God said to the serpent: "Because you have done this you are accursed more than all cattle and all wild creatures. On your belly you shall crawl, and dust you shall eat all the days of your life. I will put enmity between you and the woman, between your brood and hers. They shall strike at your head, and you shall strike at their heel." Genesis 3 : 8 to 3 : 15

To believe in such a story literally is no better than believing in fairy tales. However, let us attempt to analyse it symbolically.

As I previously mentioned, the serpent most probably represents attachment to the beautiful things of this world which is a world whereby good or evil deeds may be committed by man and by woman. As we already know, serpents do not talk because they hiss. So the first man and the first woman which God created partook of the forbidden fruit of the garden, meaning that they projected themselves into our world of materiality. They projected their spirit form onto human bodies, their spirits were then unable to detach themselves from those bodies until death did them part.

I would also like to take the time and say that the story of creation is written in everything that exists in nature. If you study nature, all of the created animals and many of the plants which nature contains, you will discover the Mighty Creator. For instance, if you study the underside of the serpent you will discover that, at one time, it had many miniature legs on which it once travelled on. Now only traces of those legs remain and the serpent crawls on its belly.

There is also a type of fish which leaves the water and crawls on land until it finds a tree. Then, it climbs the tree and perches itself on one of its branches. That fish, similarly to some frogs, has pads underneath its body which acts like suction cups and which allows him to climb. It represents that all forms of life originated in the sea and that some of that life eventually made its way inland. The various species who left the water went through an evolutionary period. With time, and with the power of the Divine Spirit, their forms changed as they adapted themselves to their new environment. They did not do this on their own, the power of the great Spirit was behind this grand plan. That is how God refines his creation.

Here is another : the human child in the womb of the mother takes on many shapes before he is born. He begins by looking like a fish and then the form changes to resemble an ape with a tail. Eventually, the tail disappears and the child begins to look more and more like a human being. There are many other examples which I could give you but I will leave you to search for them by yourselves, I am certain that you will draw great pleasure when you discover them on your own.

To the woman he said: "I will increase your labour and your groaning, and in labour you shall bear children. You shall be eager for your husband and he shall be your master." And to the man he said : "Because you have listened to your wife and have eaten from the tree which I forbade you, accursed shall be the ground on your account. With labour you shall win your food from it all the days of your life. It will grow thorns and thistles for you, none but wild plants for you to eat. You shall gain your bread by the sweat of your brow until you return to the ground; from it you were taken. Dust you are, to dust you shall return. Genesis 3 : 16 to 3 : 19

God tells the woman that, in this physical world, it is very painful for a woman to be giving birth to another human being. Obviously the world of the spirit is a perfect world whereby none of those things are necessary. In this world of materiality, woman and man have strong feelings towards one another. It is normal for them to be eager to mate with one another so that they can reproduce their own species.

To the man, God says that in this world he has to work for a living. He has to find the food which is necessary to sustain himself and others like himself. In other words, in this world of ours, man has to work in order to survive the harsh conditions of the physical world. And then, when he gets old, he will die. His body will be returned to the dust of the ground which contains all the elements which man was originally created with.

The man called his wife Eve because she was the mother of all who live. The Lord made tunics of skins for Adam and his wife and clothed them. He said, "The man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil ; what if he reaches out his hand and takes fruit from the tree of life also, eats it and lives forever?"

So the Lord God drove him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he had been taken. He cast him out, and to the east of the garden of Eden He stationed the Cherubim and a sword whirling and flashing to guard the way to the tree of life. Genesis 3 : 20 to 3 : 24

The woman is given the name of Eve because she is the mother of all new human souls who are born. So the woman, Eve, represents the soul of man while Adam represents the spirit of Man. The spirit of Man was driven from paradise, he was driven from Eden. He would not be allowed to return there because God insured that the way of return was barred. When man dies his spirit does not return to the garden of Eden because we have been told that his spirit is barred from re-entering into that world.

The spirit of man, or woman, must go to another world where he must learn other lessons that will perhaps, someday, allow him re-entrance into the garden of Eden. However, the prophets of God who are the tree of (spiritual) life do dwell in the garden of Eden, so says Genesis. They are the tree of life, they are the tree of spiritual life. This is far from the teachings of our religious teachers who assumed that their interpretations were correct and which we, in the past, accepted without any questions whatsoever.


Adam and Eve begin populating the earth. However, the story does not mention any daughters, why? Could it be that someone has removed that fact from scriptures? The eldest son of God's new Manifestation has told us that Cain and Abel did have some sisters. I can honestly say that I believe that to be the truth.

The man lay with his wife Eve, and she conceived and gave birth to Cain. She said, "With the help of the Lord I have brought a man into being." Afterwards she had another child, his brother Abel. Abel was a shepherd and Cain a tiller of the soil. The day came when Cain brought some of the produce of the soil as a gift to the Lord; and Abel brought some of the first-born of his flock, the fat portions of them.

The Lord received Abel and his gift with favour; but Cain and his gift he did not receive. Cain was very angry and his face fell. Then the Lord said to Cain, "Why are you so angry and cast down? If you do well you hold your head up ; if not, sin is a demon crouching at the door. It shall be eager for you, and you will be mastered by it." Genesis 4 : 1 to 4 : 7

The story which is presented in chapter four of Genesis is very symbolic and cannot be understood literally, it can however be understood symbolically. The story says that women are capable of bringing into this world new living souls. Also, the story of Cain represents the first man who became a tiller of the soil. In other words, he represents the first person who became a farmer. Abel represents the first man who became a shepherd. So Genesis has just told us that the two first things that man learned to do, to till the soil and to become a shepherd.

God rejects the gift which Cain presented to Him in anger, why? Was God trying to tell us that gifts should never be presented in anger but people should give with the wonderful feeling that giving gives to a person when he learns to give to others of his kind who are in need. It is improper to give leftovers to others or to present such leftovers to God.

God has also made some recommendations as to what type of food we should eat. Let us review what he said because we may have missed it when we studied the first chapter of Genesis.

"I give you all plants that bear seed everywhere on earth, and every tree bearing fruit which yields seed : they shall be yours for food. Genesis 1 : 29

The writings contained in Genesis have given us some recommendations concerning the type of foods that we should eat and it does not seem to condemn the eating of meat because common sense tells us that meat contains the protein that is necessary for our daily diets.

Also if man became a shepherd, it is because God wanted man to eat meat which is a necessity for his survival. What did man learn to do next?

Cain said to his brother Abel, "Let us go into the open country." While they were there, Cain attacked his brother Abel and murdered him. Then the Lord said to Cain, "Where is your brother Abel?" Cain answered, I do not know. Am I my brother's keeper?"

The lord said, "What have you done? Hark! your brother's blood that has been shed is crying out to me from the ground. Now you are accursed and banished from the ground which has opened its mouth wide to receive your brother's blood, which you have shed. When you till the ground, it will no longer yield you its wealth. You shall be a vagrant and a wanderer on earth."

Cain said to the Lord, "My punishment is heavier than I can bear; you have driven me today from the ground, and I must hide myself from your presence. I shall be a vagrant and a wanderer, and anyone who meets me can kill me." The Lord answered him, "No: if anyone kills Cain, Cain shall be avenged sevenfold." So the Lord put a mark on Cain, in order that anyone meeting him should not kill him. Then Cain went out from the Lord's presence and settled in the land of Nod to the east of Eden. Genesis 4 : 8 to 4 : 16

The above paragraph represents the third thing which mankind learned to do, it was to kill one another. In this story, murderers are told that after they have killed someone they will never be able to enjoy the good things that may be tilled from the soil. Murderers are told that they will remain labelled as murderers for the rest of their lives. They are also told that, after they have paid their debt to society, they will wander from one place to another place in order to hide their shame.

We are also told in the story that no one has the right to kill a murderer. As we know, if someone kills a murderer without reason ; in other words, if he kills someone who has killed someone else and if he is caught he is then brought before a court of justice. That happening may very well be the beginning of torments for that person who has also become a murderer. The story says that his torments will then be sevenfold.

In the story, God said that he put a mark on Cain so that he would be recognized by other people. Who are the people which the story is talking about? Are Cain and Abel not the first two human beings reproduced by the mating of a male and a female of the human species who were Adam and Eve? Those sayings are the proof that the story of Adam is Eve is symbolic and that it definitely has other meanings.

We previously discovered that mankind on this earth are not the descendants of Adam and Eve. Therefore we can honestly say that Adam and Eve were symbolic beings. We are now studying the proofs that the story of creation is symbolic and that it also has many other wonderful meanings.

Have you noticed that the Lord utilized the word 'Hark', what does it mean? The dictionary gives us the following definition, "Listen closely."

We have been told many times in Genesis that our species are the descendants of the three sons of Noah, have we not? Then we have no choice but to say that we are definitely not the descendants of Adam and Eve.

Then Cain lay with his wife ; and she conceived and bore Enoch. Cain was then building a city, which he named Enoch after his son. Enoch begot Irad; Irad begot Mehujael; Mehujael begot Methushael; Methushael begot Lamech. Genesis 4 : 17-18

We now have additional proof that the story of creation is written symbolically. Cain and Abel are supposed to be the two first born of Adam and Eve but somehow Cain found himself a woman somewhere, she has become his wife and she conceives him a son. Where did she come from? Also why was Cain building a city and for whom, where are the people he is building it for. Where did he learn to build a city so quickly, did he learn that overnight and all on his own? Those are very interesting questions, are they not?

Obviously, it means that there were numerous people on earth at that time. We shall soon discover the answer to that great mysterious puzzle which pertains to the supposedly first people on earth.

Lamech married two wives, one named Adah and the other Zillah. Adah bore Jabal who was the ancestor of herdsmen who lived in tents ; and his brother's name was Jubal ; he was the ancestor of those who play the harp and pipe. Zillah, the other wife, bore Tubal-cain, the master of all coppersmiths, and Tubal-cain's sister was Naamah. Lamech said to his wives: "Adah and Zillah, listen to me ; wives of Lamech, mark what I say : I kill a man for wounding me, a young man for a blow. Cain may be avenged seven times, but Lamech seventy-seven." Genesis 4 : 19 to 4 : 24

All of a sudden there seems to be all kinds of people on earth, where did they all come from? We are getting closer towards finding the answer to that puzzling question. It is a question which, at the present time, may seem impossible to resolve. However, our continuous searching efforts will allow us to discover the truth and to resolve this question.

Adam lay with his wife again. She bore a son, and named him Seth, "For" she said, "God has granted me another son in place of Abel, because Cain killed him." Seth too had a son, whom he named Enoch. At that time men began to invoke the Lord by name. Genesis 4 : 25-26

Confusing is it not?How about if we attempt to remove some of the confusion. It would seem that the Genesis story is attempting to tell us two things : It is attempting to tell us that, firstly, mankind learned to till the soil and then, secondly, it is telling us that man became a shepherd. Then mankind learned to kill one another. The story is also attempting to tell us that, additionally, mankind began to invoke the Lord by name. There had to be a prophet or a divine Messenger to teach those people how to pray. Could Adam have been the first prophet who was God sent to humanity many thousands of years ago? Could he have been the first prophet sent to the race of the giant men so that they could learn about God, pray to Him and worship Him? That is correct, research has given us the proof that Adam and Eve belonged to the race of the giant people.

Do not despair, the truth is forthcoming. So far the story of creation has told us that the first thing which man learned to do was to till the soil, then man learned to herd sheep. Cain learned to build a city and there had to be a lot of people on earth at that time otherwise there would be no need to build a city. By then, man also learned to kill one another.

Then mankind learned to play the harp and the flute. Following that came the art of blacksmiths and coppersmiths. One thing that we are going to have to accept is the fact that the story of creation is not necessarily written sequentially, that may be one of the reasons why it is so confusing and so hard to understand. I suspect that the reason why it has been written in such a fashion is that only those who are really searching for the truth would discover it, which seems to have been much too long in forthcoming.


Now for the grand finale. We should keep reminding ourselves that the new man was created to live a maximum of one hundred and twenty years. We already studied those facts in Genesis chapter one, it is important that we do not forget them.

Adam was one hundred and thirty years old when he begot a son in his likeness and image, and named him Seth. After the birth of Seth he lived eight hundred years, and had other sons and daughters. He lived nine hundred and thirty years and then he died. Genesis 5 : 3 to 5 : 5

Seth was one hundred and five years old when he begot Enosh. After the birth of Enosh he lived 807 years, and had other sons and daughters. He lived 912 years, and then he died. Genesis 5 : 6 to 5 : 8

Enosh was 90 years old when he begot Kenan. After the birth of Kenan he lived 815 years, and had other sons and daughters. He lived 905 years, and then he died. Genesis 5 : 9-10-11

Kenan was 70 years old when he begot Mahalalel. After the birth of Mahalalel he lived 840 years, and had other sons and daughters. He lived 910 years, and then he died. Genesis 5 : 12-13-14

Mahalalel was 65 years old when he begot Jared. After the birth of Jared he lived 830 years, and had other sons and daughters. He lived 895 years, and then he died. Genesis 5 : 15-16-17

Jared was 162 years old when he begot Enoch. After the birth of Enoch he lived 800 years, and had other sons and daughters. He lived 962 years and then he died. Genesis 5 : 18-19-20

Enoch was 65 years old when he begot Methuselah. After the birth of Methuselah, Enoch walked with God for 300 years, and had other sons and daughters. He lived 365 years. Having walked with God, Enoch was seen no more, because God had taken him away. Genesis 5 : 21 to 5 : 24

Methuselah was 187 years when he begot lamech. After the birth of lamech he lived for 782 years, and had other sons and daughters. He lived 969 years, and then he died. Genesis 5 : 25-26-27

Lamech was 182 years old when he begot a son. He named him Noah, saying, " This boy will bring us relief from our work, and from the hard labour that has come upon us because of the Lord's curse upon the ground. After the birth of Noah, he lived for 595 years, and had other sons and daughters. Lamech lived 777 years, and then he died. Noah was 500 years old when he begot Shem, Ham and Japheth. Genesis 5 : 28 to 5 : 32

Those stories are not only hard to understand, they are also hard to digest. We were told in Genesis chapter one that man was created to live a maximum of 120 years. Then what are those writings trying to tell us when it mentions that all of those people lived extremely long lives? Perhaps the story is trying to tell us something else. Perhaps it is trying to tell us that those people mentioned, who supposedly lived such long lives, were the prophets which God sent to humanity in order to teach us how to live properly.

The numerous years which they are said to have lived could represent the length of time that their teachings remained alive. Genesis also told us that mankind began to invoke the Lord by name during the days of Adam, did it not? Then we have no choice but to say that Adam may have been the first (giant) prophet whom God sent to humanity many thousands of years ago. We know that human life has been in existence on earth for many millions of years and we also know that man has been on earth for a very long time. The inuits of the north of Canada have been there for many thousands of years and the northern Indians for perhaps even longer than that.

Creation dates very far back. Therefore the story of Adam and Eve, and of their descendants, has to be the story of God's prophets. The length of time which the story says that they lived is probably the length of time that their spiritual teachings survived before they died out. The great Nostradamus has told us the following pertaining to God's numerous prophets which were sent to humanity.

"...coming near to the sentence of the 1 002 prophets that have been since the creation of the world until the coming of Christ".

The famous clairvoyant, Nostradamus, has also told us that there were 4 173 years between the beginning, meaning the coming of the prophet Adam, until the coming of Christ. The beginning which he mentioned was the beginning of the spiritual man whereby he became aware of the Creator and began to pray to that Creator which scriptures have labelled as our God. Therefore, we have no choice but to say that Adam must have been the first prophet who spoke to man, teaching him about God the Great Creator.

The people who are mentioned in the above prophecy actually lived on earth but they could only have lived for a maximum of 120 years. They were God's prophets and the name of Noah is also mentioned in that story. Some of us are very much aware of the story of Noah which we shall shortly study. Did things actually happen on earth exactly as they were written in the book of Genesis or did someone perhaps re-write some of those stories?

The teachings of Adam lasted for 930 years (130+800), the teachings of Seth for 912 years (105+807), the teachings of Enosh for 905 years (90+815), the teachings of Kenan for 910 years (70+840), the teachings of Mahalalel for 895 years (65+830), the teachings of Jared for 962 years (162+800), the teachings of Enosh for 365 years (65+300), the teachings of Methuselah for 969 years (187+782), the teachings of Lamech for 777 years (182+595).

The total of those years comes to 7615 years before the coming of the prophet Noah. Have you noticed that the teachings of Enosh lasted for only 365 years compared to the others. Why is that? It would seem that his teachings may have been faulty so they were replaced earlier than the teachings of the previous prophets. A clue is given in the prophecy which says, "Having walked with God, Enosh was seen no more, because God had taken him away."

God may have had to take away his teachings sooner than the teachings of the other prophets. We can only assume that something went wrong and that God allowed the teachings of that prophet to die out sooner than those of the other prophets, for reasons that are unknown to us presently.

How about Noah, how long did his teachings last? The writings of Genesis say that his teachings lasted for 500 years before the universal flood. It also says that those teachings lasted for a total of 950 years before they died out and were obviously replaced by other teachings that were brought forward by other prophets who came after him.

Noah was 500 years old when... Genesis 5 : 32

After the flood Noah lived for three hundred and fifty years, and he was nine hundred and fifty years when he died. Genesis 9 : 28-29

How long did the biblical flood last? Surprisingly, the answer to that puzzle is also given us and it is not 40 days. Actually it lasted for more than 100 years. The teachings of Noah are said to have been 500 years old before the flood. After the flood they were 601 years old. The proof is given us in Genesis chapter eight.

And so it came about that, on the first day of the first month of his six hundred and first year (first of January of the year 601) the waters had dried up on the earth... Genesis 8 : 13

After a flood of catastrophic events occurred on earth, the teachings of Noah lasted for another 350 years. So the teachings of the prophet Noah actually lasted for a total of 950 years. The following is a proof which is given to us again in the writings of Genesis.

After the flood Noah lived for 350 years, and he was nine hundred and fifty years when he died. Genesis 9 : 28-29

Genesis has just told us that the teachings of the prophet Noah lasted for a total of 950 years. 500+100+350=950)

Are you interested to continue with your research, will you continue by studying the fascinating story of Noah and of the great symbolic flood? Perhaps the following presentation will bring out the truth pertaining to the symbolic Ark (arc) which Noah built and entered into before a great flood of events occurred onto what seems to have been a singular earthly continent.
