Creation’s Contradiction Riddle

THE EFFECTUAL FLIP

 

You will recall the transition verse from the Genesis 1 Creation account to the remarkably different Genesis 2 and 3 Creation account.  In Genesis 2:4 we read:

 

This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that Yahweh God made the earth and the heavens.

 

Again, this is Yahweh God’s first proclaimed flip.  But in reality, just as Tabernacles was first the first month of the twelve-month cycle at the time of Creation, was then flipped so that Passover was the first month, and must go back to Tabernacles as the first, so the heavens and the earth were first, followed by the flip where the earth and the heavens were the new order, and now must return to the new heavens and the new earth. 

 

We noted in The Revelation of the Millennium, page 4, that just as Tabernacles being first was necessary for the creation of the heavens and the earth, so it will be necessary for Tabernacles to flip back to being first so that the new heavens and new earth can be created.  So on the spiritual level, when did the heavens and the earth begin?  The original heavens and earth type began in the Garden when God walked with man.  But in reality, Yahshua brought to earth the heavens and the earth.  Through the Nazirite vow, He restored the original Garden and gave the kingdom of heaven to man.  But, did man keep it, and keep it holy?  Absolutely not!  As noted in The Great Tribulation, the apostles corrupted the kingdom when they cast lots for a replacement for Judas, effecting the abomination of desolation.  In truth, they ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and defiled the Garden!  What was the outcome for Adam and Eve?  They saw their nakedness and were cast out of the Garden.  So, what did we see take place in the church at that time that evidenced this same removal?  When were they “cast out”?  Just as Adam and Eve were cast out of the Garden, in confirming testimony the first Remnant were immediately cast out of Jerusalem, the city of peace. 

 

Saul was in hearty agreement with putting him [Stephen] to death.  And on that day a great persecution began against the church in Jerusalem, and they were all scattered throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria, except the apostles [Acts 8:1].

 

This act is most important, profound, and confirming.  When the apostles cast lots for a replacement for Judas, the heavens and the earth became the earth and the heavens, and they lost that pure kingdom and had to leave Jerusalem.  With this change, all that is attested in Genesis 3 took place in the church.  The kingdom was cursed, and man was cursed, with both taking their places under Satan, the devil, the god and ruler of this world.  And the kingdom has VERY sadly evidenced this cursed state for 2,000 years, and is tragically evidenced today.  But, what else can one expect from flesh man?

 

Today, there needs to be a flip back to the heavens and the earth, even the new heavens and new earth, and Yahweh have mercy upon us, complete what was begun 2,000 years ago, restore the apostolic office to the concluding Elijah that Judas had possessed and was given to Satan, and Immanuel come to this earth and rule and reign with His bride. 

 

It is most significant that in all the verses that speak of this new and concluding work, the order is always heavens and earth:

 

“For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former things will not be remembered or come to mind” [Isaiah 65:17].

 

Amen and amen!  It will be wonderful when the corrupt and blind and divided church we have known for 2,000 years will no longer come to mind.  It will be a bad dream, a bad experience we want to forget.

 

“For just as the new heavens and the new earth which I make will endure before Me,” declares Yahweh, “so your offspring and your name will endure.  And it shall be from new moon to new moon and from sabbath to sabbath, all mankind will come to bow down before Me,” says Yahweh [Isaiah 66:22-23].

 

Amen and amen again that this new heavens and new earth work will endure.  Obviously, this is the Millennial Reign where men come to bow down before Immanuel.

 

But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells [2 Peter 3:13].

 

And amen and amen!  Oh, let righteousness dwell on this earth, replacing the death and darkness and corruption that has reigned for 6,000 years.

 

Earlier, we asked the question:  Given this way of Yahweh God to flip things, what then might He be doing when in Genesis 2:4 He began another Creation account entirely different from Genesis 1 through 2:3, and when introducing it clearly and distinctly flipped the heavens and the earth?  Now we can see the answer to this.  When the apostles cast lots for a replacement for Judas, the heavens and the earth became the earth and the heavens.  They lost that pure kingdom and left Jerusalem.  With this change, all that is attested in Genesis 3 took place in the church.  Again, the kingdom was cursed, and man was cursed, with both taking their places under Satan.  This has been the earth-and-heavens flipped state for 2,000 years. 

 

Thus we see the reason for this clear Bible contradiction.  God begins a testimony in Genesis 1 of that which is good.  But, in His ways He plans to cause it to fail and fall—it must, as you will soon see why.  But, Yahweh goes with man into this “wilderness,” and in time works all the evil for good.  We find then that the Genesis 2 and 3 Creation account is in fact the reality for man and the kingdom of heaven.  However, when this wilderness process is completed, He then flips the Creation back, providing the true fulfillment—the new heavens and the new earth!

 

Let us now look at this same truth, but in a two other different and highly revealing ways.  In each case it follows this same trinity pattern: 

 

Good  >  Cursed  —>  Good

 

or

 

Heavens and earth  >  Earth and heavens  —>  New heavens and new earth

 

To begin this next testimony, we note in Appendix 10 of The Curse of 1920 that Adam and Eve lived in the original Garden for seven years before they sinned and were cast out of it.  While there is nothing in the Scriptures that specifically states this timing, by looking at the rest of time since then, as well as the government and ways and order of Yahweh, we see the reality of this.  This accounting is thoroughly addressed and explained in The Issue – II, page 8, and is specifically mentioned about two-thirds of the way down that page.

 

So, why do we note this?  After being cast out of the Garden in Genesis 3, Genesis 4 begins:  Now the man had relations with his wife Eve, and she conceived and gave birth to Cain, and she said, ‘I have gotten a manchild with the help of Yahweh.’ ”  One must then ask the question:  Is it ever mentioned in Genesis 2 or 3 that Adam had relations with Eve?  No.  And the way this account is laid out, including chapter 4, it can be assumed that he did not have relations with her until they were cast out of the Garden.  Chapter 3 ends with the statement:  “So He [Yahweh God] drove the man out; and at the east of the garden of Eden He stationed the cherubim and the flaming sword which turned every direction to guard the way to the tree of life.”  This is then immediately followed in Genesis 4:1 with the statement:  “Now the man had relations with his wife Eve, and she conceived and gave birth to Cain . . ..”  So again, it is most evident that while in the Garden for those seven years, they never had relations, and certainly no children were born.

 

We know that this seed account in the opening chapters of the Scriptures is highly prophetic of what would take place in mankind, and more importantly in the establishment of the kingdom of heaven.  So, we must ask here:  Why did Adam and Eve not have relations in the Garden?  And in like regard, why is it that the very first thing mentioned once they were cast out of the Garden, was that they had relations and gave birth to their first child, followed then by the next?  Let us begin answering this by examining the state in which these two existed while in the Garden.

 

Genesis 2 ends with the statement:  And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.”  Then subsequent to the two eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, in Genesis 3:7, 10, and 11 we read:  “Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin coverings.   . . .  He [Adam] said, ‘I heard the sound of You in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself.’  And He [Yahweh God] said, ‘Who told you that you were naked?  Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?’ ”

 

Let us ask a question here:  In order for Adam and Eve, or for that fact any couple, to have relations, do they not have to get naked first?  Of course.  But up to this point, Adam and Eve did not even know they were naked.  Now, I know this seems very simple and even naēve at this point, but stay with me.  There is more to this than what appears. 

 

From what we read, it is evident that Adam and Eve did not have relations for the entire time they were in the Garden.  There has to be a reason for this, and the only answer would be that they were not naked, in their own eyes.  Mentally, they had not unclothed themselves so as to have relations.  For we read in Genesis 3:7 that upon the fall, “the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew they were naked.”  Thus, their state of unrecognized nakedness did not lend them to recognize the ability of copulation.  In Genesis 1:28, God told them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth.”  But, that commission is not stated in Genesis 2 or 3, and the evidence in chapter 4 is that they did not begin this fruitfulness until after they knew of their nakedness and were cast out of the Garden.  “Now the man had relations with his wife, Eve.”  Given all the evidence, it is obvious that Adam and Eve did not have relations in the Garden where they and the entire Garden knew no shame or curse or sin.  It was all good.  Then it was not until they could remove their covering did they have relations and bring forth offspring.

 

Let us add more evidence that they would not have had relations in the Garden.  In Leviticus 15:18, we read the Law regarding intimacy:  If a man lies with a woman so that there is a seminal emission, they shall both bathe in water and be unclean until evening.”  Therefore, just like death or leprosy or a pig, intimacy is regarded as an unclean act.  Also, when the woman bore the resulting child, she was unclean (Leviticus 12:2-5).  And even when she was in menstruation, she was unclean (Leviticus 15:19).  Therefore, it is possible that Eve did not even have ovulation, and certainly not menstrual cycles, before the fall.  So why would there be this abstinence in the Garden, and clearly no offspring according to the flesh?  The answer seems quite evident.  First, we know that its outcome is the type of the little serpent (sperm) being cast down to the earth (egg).  The product of this is our fleshly bodies that are the seat of sin, this wretched man, even the body of this death in which no good dwells (Romans 7). 

 

 

So, given this testimony and outcome, and the fact that intimacy is unclean, it is indeed not surprising that Adam and Eve did not have relations in the initiating Garden.  Therefore, there was in fact only one way for this fruitfulness to take place:  For Adam and Eve to sin and fall, to become like God and know good and evil (Genesis 3:22), to have a mental state of nakedness, and be cast out of the Garden.  And of course this is exactly what took place, and immediately intimacy began.  To fill the earth with people required that man fall.  And there cannot be fruitfulness unless the death process can be fulfilled.  Whether it be the seed of the plant that is buried in the dark ground, or the seed of the man that is buried in the dark womb, the seed must be buried into darkness and apparent death, and from therein spring forth in life.  This death process was not even possible in the Garden.  So again, they had to sin, recognize their nakedness, and then enter into a place and state where unclean intimacy and the death-like sowing process could take place.  The Garden could have never produced this natural replication of flesh. 

 

Furthermore, in the bigger picture, the Garden itself was a seed as well that was sown into darkness and death, to resurrect again someday into abundant life!  And we see that when man puts away this earthly flesh and puts on an immortal heavenly body, the Garden’s abstinence will actually be restored.  We will no longer bring forth earthly-flesh offspring.  Thus in like manner we see:

 

No physical intimacy  >  Bring forth fleshly offspring  —>  No physical intimacy

 

Furthermore, Genesis 1 versus Genesis 2 and 3, and then the fulfillment, is this same pattern.  Genesis 1 is like the good Garden, and at the end God rests.  It is the creation of the heavens and the earth.  On the other hand, Genesis 2 and 3 is like being cursed and cast out of the Garden.  Here again, it is the flip creation of the corrupted earth and the heavens.  Yahweh God is in this alright, for it is the “wilderness” process that is necessary in order to get us into the Promised Land (individually and corporately).  It is equally necessary so that the earth can be filled with mankind (the vast majority of which are now sleeping and will return).  And what we await is for the completion of this plenishing of the earth, and the fulfilling flip back to the new heavens and the new earth.  The first to fully effect this Promised Land fulfillment is the two-part Bride—the first Remnant resurrect from the dead, and the second Remnant who are alive will meet them in the clouds, and both will meet Immanuel in the air.  (Read Resurrection and Judgment.)

 

But, do you now see the process involved here?  For Yahweh God to bring forth fruitfulness, man had to fail!  There was first a seed testimony of that which is good, but it had to die and yield to an unclean work that would afford the creation of earthly man.  And, this has included the church for the last 2,000 years.  But furthermore, this same pattern that is evidenced in Genesis 1, 2, and 3, had to happen to the kingdom of heaven, the church.  It too is an unclean work, that was preceded by the like pure Garden work that Yahshua provided upon His death and resurrection.  Then upon receiving it and Him leaving, they cast lots for a replacement for Judas, effecting the abomination of desolation, and little more than a year later they too were cast out.  This is the way of Yahweh:  a death, . . . a burial, . . . and finally followed by a resurrection!  But, as wonderful as resurrection may be, it is not possible without the unwelcomed former two works.  This was evidenced at the beginning of Creation, it of necessity happened in the church, and it takes place in our individual lives as well.  As costly and difficult as it may be, it is the way of Yahweh God in bringing forth fruitfulness.

 

This now brings us to the second highly revealing testimony evidencing this same trinity pattern.  We will begin by briefly examining the law of coverings, but adding new insight we have not seen before.  When Adam and Eve sinned, the outcome was that they saw their own nakedness:  Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked.”  When writing Coverings, I knew that when Adam and Eve sinned, they had to have lost a covering.  This is the principle of coverings:  the initial covering is removed and is replaced with a temporary substitutionary covering. In Coverings, the original online version, chapter 3, I state, “In Psalm 104:1–2 we read:  ‘O Yahweh my God, you are very great; You are clothed with splendor and majesty, covering Yourself with light as with a cloak.’ Before Adam and Eve sinned, Yahweh was their covering, taking full responsibility for them; and whether literally or simply governmentally, they were clothed by His splendor, His light.”  Considering this further today, it is more evident that Yahweh was their covering governmentally and not literally with light.  There had to be a covering, so at the time that was written it seemed evident that literal light was that covering.  But it is also evident that, as stated in Genesis 2:25, they were naked:  And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.”  So what do we find in the Scriptures that explains this governmental covering that was not visual to the eyes?  There are two clear evidences.

 

First, in Genesis 17, we read the account where Yahweh was going to take full responsibility for Abraham’s offspring.  Abraham had already fathered a son, Ishmael, but he was not the promised seed.  This son of promise had to come through Sarah, who had never yet had a child, and was now too old to have one.  So what was the solution?  Yahweh went to Abraham and told him to be circumcised:  And you shall be circumcised in the flesh of your foreskin, and it shall be the sign of the covenant between Me and you” (Genesis 17:11).  What is the foreskin?  It is a “head” covering.  And what was that covering?  It was his flesh.  What Yahweh was thereby attesting through circumcision was that Abraham’s own flesh efforts would no longer be his covering pertaining to his offspring, but that He Himself would become Abraham’s covering.  Immediately after this, the son of promise, Isaac, was conceived and born through Sarah.

 

Do you see here then the same truth, yet in the flipped order of what we see taking place in the Garden?  With Abraham, his “head” was covered with flesh, that covering was then removed, and Yahweh God took responsibility as that covering.  But in the Garden, He was equally their covering, then they sinned, that covering was removed, and now their bodies had to be covered with a substitutionary covering.  Thus in both cases, when Yahweh God was the covering, there was nothing there to be seen that indicated this.  And this leads us to the second revealing like evidence.

 

In 1 Corinthians 11:3 we read of the headship order, even the covering order, of God and His creation.  Here we see that the Father is the head and covering of the Son.  The Son is the head and covering of all men.  And the man is the head and covering of the woman.  Verse 5 goes on to instruct that every woman who has her head uncovered while praying or prophesying dishonors her head, her husband (or father for a daughter).  But verse 4 instructs that if a man prays or prophesies with something on his head, he dishonors his Head, Yahshua.  So, why the difference for the man?  It is the same principle we saw with Abraham and with Adam and Eve.  The man’s uncovered head here again attests that God is his covering.

 

Thus, as with both circumcised Abraham, and Adam and Eve in the Garden, Yahweh God is the covering.  And, including this account in 1 Corinthians 11, in all three of these cases, when Yahweh or His Son are the covering, there is no visual appearance of that covering being there, though it indeed is.  This would then explain why Adam and Eve were not ashamed.  Yahweh God was their covering.  But when they sinned, this separated them from Him and they saw their nakedness and needed a substitutionary covering.  In the natural, this covering is clothing.  In the spiritual, the need is for Yahshua.  But in the greatest fulfillment for these bodies, we need that heavenly transformation so they are no longer of this world but are born from above—heavenly bodies of which Yahshua himself now possesses.

 

Thus we see three testimonies that speak to the same truth but in different ways.  First there was the heavens and the earth, followed by the earth and the heavens, and concluded by the new heavens and the new earth.  Next, we saw that there was no conjugation or offspring, followed by the replication of earthly flesh with the advent of sin, and to be completed and fulfilled by the transformation into heavenly bodies.  Then finally we considered Yahweh God being the covering of man, followed by clothing being that covering with the advent of sin, and finally receipt of a heavenly body which Yahshua now possesses.  Then we added two more partial testimonies:  Abraham and headcoverings.  But there is a third that needs to be added as well that relates to this, and we must be very brief.

 

When Yahshua came to this earth, through the Nazirite vow He restored the Garden of God, establishing the kingdom of heaven on the earth.  But upon doing so, He then returned to heaven.  So we ask:  What does this mean for the church, the kingdom, regarding governmental headship?  Let us get to the point.  Who is the god of this world (2 Corinthians 4:4), even the ruler of this world (John 14:30), to whom all of its domain and glory has been given (Luke 4:5-6)?  Satan!  Therefore, since the head and covering of the church left, as with all other covering testimonies, a substitutionary covering had to be placed upon it; and, that covering is Satan.  Then when his time is complete, he will be bound and Immanuel will return to restore His kingdom and headship.  Thus we see laid out here an orderly listing of these various covering testimonies.
