[Gen 4:25 KJV] 25 And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, [said she], hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.
The first 5 chapters of Genesis contain the message of regeneration via resurrection. There came out of the woman two brothers, twins. This came after it was said to the woman that of her seed would God bring one who would be the salvation of the race. One brother, Cain, was “of that wicked one” and slew his brother, because his own deeds were evil, and his brother’s righteous (1 John 3:12). The seed of promise was in Abel, whose righteousness was that of faith. He believed God concerning the promised savior, a “lamb of the flock”, a perfect man who would die for the human race. Abel’s offering of a lamb signified that he believed what God had said. Cain not only did not regard the Lord concerning this, but further disregarded the Lord how that man could not redeem himself by his own works; “And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed [is] the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat [of] it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou [art], and unto dust shalt thou return”. Genesis 3.
So, in Abel, the seed of promise died. But the promise was raised again in Seth, given to the woman to replace Abel and make the promise of God, concerning a savior, sure; “And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, [said she], hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD”. Seth became the figure of promise fulfilled through resurrection. Death could not void the promise of God.
In chapter four of Genesis, all the destiny of the fallen race is declared. The righteous by faith is hated and slain by the worker of iniquity. Vengeance is declared to be the sole territory of God. The promise is raised in Seth. Cain and his offspring end in a death spiral of multiplying self destruction. The first words of the next chapter declare that all who will be redeemed from Adam’s fallen race, will be redeemed in Seth, the figure of resurrection:
“This [is] the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him; Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created. And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat [a son] in his own likeness, after his image; and called his name Seth…”.
No mention of Cain or his generations are made. All that come of Adam, who is made male and female, there being no difference in the promised savior, …all who shall live with God, shall live in Seth. There is no physical discrimination here. This is not about flesh and blood, which can not inherit the Kingdom of God. This is about Spirit and Life. The just shall live by faith. Seth is a picture of what Jesus, the heir and true man of promise said, “Ye must be born again”.
“And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew”.
The Savior Is Slain, And Raised With A Generation.
[[To the chief Musician upon Aijeleth Shahar, A Psalm of David.]] My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? [why art thou so] far from helping me, [and from] the words of my roaring?
O my God, I cry in the daytime, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent.
But thou [art] holy, [O thou] that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them.
They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded.
But I [am] a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.
All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, [saying],
He trusted on the LORD [that] he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.
But thou [art] he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope [when I was] upon my mother’s breasts.
I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou [art] my God from my mother’s belly.
Be not far from me; for trouble [is] near; for [there is] none to help.
Many bulls have compassed me: strong [bulls] of Bashan have beset me round.
They gaped upon me [with] their mouths, [as] a ravening and a roaring lion.
I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.
My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.
For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.
I may tell all my bones: they look [and] stare upon me.
They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.
But be not thou far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste thee to help me.
Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog.
Save me from the lion’s mouth: for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns.
I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.
Ye that fear the LORD, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel.
For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him; but when he cried unto him, he heard.
My praise [shall be] of thee in the great congregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear him.
The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the LORD that seek him: your heart shall live for ever.
All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.
For the kingdom [is] the LORD’S: and he [is] the governor among the nations.
All [they that be] fat upon earth shall eat and worship: all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him: and none can keep alive his own soul.
A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation.
They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done [this].
The Resurrected One Is Symbolized In The Almond…The Symbol Of Resurrection.
When the Lord lead the children of Israel out of Egypt, Moses and his brother Aaron were the instruments. Moses and Aaron, of the tribe of Levi, each walked with a staff..a rod. The nature and origin of Aaron’s rod is revealed to settle a question of leadership. When the people murmured about leadership, the Lord commanded them to take the twelve rods of each of the tribes, according to their princes, and write the name of each upon their rod. Upon Aaron’s rod was his name, for the house of Levi. They were laid before the tabernacle. In the morning, the rod of Aaron had been raised to life, leafed and blossomed, and bore in it’s resurrection, a generation of almonds. Almonds, scripturally had come into Egypt from Jacob, some four hundred years earlier, as a gift to Pharaoh from Jacob, to buy food in a time of famine. Jacob did not know it, but his gift was given to his own son Joseph, now Lord of all Egypt. Joseph was there, having been thrown into a pit by his jealous brothers to die, and raised out of the pit in another figure of resurrection, it having been ordained that he must go before his house into Egypt, to save them.
So, some four hundred years after the Almond comes into Egypt from Jacob, a branch from a tree of that seed is cut off, dies, and is made a rod and instrument of power and authority to lead the people out of bondage, into promise. The branch is raised with a generation, the only remnant of the almond that came to Egypt by Jacob to do so, and in that state of resurrection, together with a generation of seed, each seed containing the complete genetic inheritance of the raised branch, it enters the holiest place and is placed within the Ark of Testimonies, along with the hidden manna and the tables of the law of carnal commandments.
The Book Of The Generation Of Jesus Christ
Matthew chapter one declares itself to be the book of the generation of Jesus Christ. It gives a list of names in sequence, generation to generation, divided into three groups of fourteen:
“…So all the generations from Abraham to David [are] fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon [are] fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ [are] fourteen generations”. Matthew 1:17
If you read the chapter, it names each of the names from Abraham until Christ. If you count them, you find something amazing. From Abraham to David are fourteen. From David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen. From The carrying away into Babylon until the man Jesus are thirteen. Where is the fourteenth? It is not named because Jesus is not yet raised. As all the prophets and the aforementioned things declare, He would not be raised alone. The fourteenth and final generation of Christ are named in all them who are added in faith, from the time He was raised and glorified, to this very moment as you read, and until the generation is concluded and sealed up, at a time of the Father’s discretion. If Christ is in you by faith, then the resurrection is in you. And when He is revealed in glory, you will be revealed with Him in glory. I do not say when He comes. For he has been in the act of coming in a generation since He was raised. When His coming is complete, it will be revealed. There is nothing in this present world and age that is worthy of being mentioned or compared with these things. Nothing. But this is the Gospel. Christ in YOU, reckoned and added by faith to the completed generation of Jesus Christ hope of glory. Every eye will see this. Every knee will collapse. Every tongue will wag in admission. Jesus has be the truth all along.
The Corona (Crown) virus is a great sign of the time. It is real enough, but symbolizes everything about a lie, which enters the mind to erase it and replace it with it’s own message, to thereafter be duplicated by the co-opted mind until it fills it to bursting and destruction. It is impossible to find truth in a lie. The only truth about it, is that it is a lie.
Let no man steal your crown!
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Philippians 2
Jesus knew that God was His Father. When He was raised, He revealed what He had accomplished for you: “Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and [to] my God, and your God“.
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20
