The Exodus story and its Passover Seder is the better-known though Kabbalah began already in the Middle Ages to seep into Christian and Muslim mysticism. Both archetypal tales echo in the "AVATAR" film when all the life-forms of the planet-moon Pandora, including but not only the quasi-human blue-skinned people who call themselves the Na'vi in Hebrew this word means "Prophet" rise up against the tyrannical power of a rapacious Earthian corporation backed by a hyper-mechanized invading mercenary army made up of ex-Marines.
In the Exodus story, it is locusts and frogs, rivers and hailstorms — what we call the Ten Plagues — that carry out the word of God and shatter Pharaoh when he refuses to free the shepherd-folk, the Hebrews, whom he has tried first to enslave and then to exterminate. In Exodus, it is Moses, an Egyptian prince with a physical flaw -- a stuttering tongue — who after stammering his doubts and unwillingness commits treason against his Pharaoh-father. He becomes a spokesperson for YHWH, a leader of the rebellious slaves, and the invoker of the Plagues.
He becomes through 22d-century science an Avatar, a blue-skin who is drawn to lead the Na'vi and call upon the Earth-Goddess of Pandora to rouse her web of life to break the Earthian army and defend the Na'vi and all the life-forms of Her planet. This Crusher army is Pharaoh's horse-chariot army turned hypermechanical. This Na'vian "Moses" does raise the problem as Michael Lerner has pointed out that to some viewers the heroic leader may at first glance seem to nullify the need for a transformational social movement.
But a deeper seeing of the film makes clear that it is the Na'vi as a community and the whole Pandoran web of life that rise in revolt. After rabbinic Judaism developed the tradition of telling the Exodus story through a sacred meal, the Seder, it assigned the Song of Songs to be chanted at the Seder or on the Shabbat of Pesach. In this unique book of the Bible, God's Name is never mentioned and the reader is invited into a mystical sense that the very flow of the book itself in its spring-flowering erotic dance of woman and man, human and earth, is in its fullness and its mystery the all-embracing Name of God.
And in "AVATAR," the moon-planet Pandora in all the luscious colors of its forest, in the lyrical weave of unity between earth and human, and in the love affair of Sully's Avatar and a Na'vi princess, there is a delicious taste of the Song of Songs. How does Avatar echo the Kabbalistic mythos? The festival through which the Kabbalists years ago left a deep mark of their beliefs is Tu B'Shvat, which comes at the full moon of the midwinter lunar month of Shvat. It was known in Jewish lore as the New Year of the Trees, dividing one tax year of tithing fruit from the next —-- therefore, a time to ensure that the poor and the landless get enough to eat.
The kabbalists drew on the legend of the Tree of Life in Eden's garden of Delight -- and turned this moment into the New Year of "The Tree," God's Own Self, which in the time of cold, the time of invisible seed, begins to grow new life into the world. The Tree of Life, God's greatest plentiful abundance, had vanished from human ken when the humans tried to gobble up all they food they saw, and thereby banished themselves from Eden.
That banishment is what the Earthians of Avatar have done to themselves. By gobbling up the earth they live in, they have killed it and driven themselves to seek another in Pandora. But they have learned nothing. In the winter of their discontent, despair, they glimpse the Tree of Life, the Garden of Delight. They celebrate "Tu B'Shvat" all year long. Their worship especially focuses on great trees that are the most sacred centers of their lives. Spirit embodied, incarnate. The film is a profound challenge to the official militarized foreign policy, Big-Business-dominated and oil-addicted economy, and consumer-addled life-style of the United States, and even to the official religious life of American churches, synagogues, and mosques.
I think there are two approaches we might make to this problem, the individual and the spiritual. First of all it seems to be a natural law that whenever there are winners there are also losers. Egypt had so frequently and so deliberately hardened its corporate heart against God, who had given them so many opportunities to obey him, that they had forced themselves into a position where the only way for Israel to win her liberation was through their defeat.
Pharaoh could at any point have compromised or even just given in, but he refused to do so, and the nation bore the consequences. Actions have consequences, and to align ourselves with evil means that we pay the piper sooner or later. Egypt paid that price, and after giving them so many chances to change their position of fixed opposition to him, God can hardly be blamed for punishing them. Where we place ourselves, the way we live, to whom we are aligned, matters.
No excuses. But secondly the choice of this reading during Easter suggests the link with cross and resurrection. So to celebrate our salvation through the cross is at the same time to celebrate the defeat of all that is evil, and of those who have given their lives to perpetuating it. Search GO. What is each meant to teach us? They create fruit tree gardens to provide produce to consume, dates, figs, pomengranates, apples, wheat for bread and beer and wine.

The senior gods the Annunaki task the junior gods the Igigi with the gardening chores, planting, weeding, harvesting, building irrigation canals, clearing them of clogging sediments, night and day, for 40 years with no rest at any time. They rebel at Nippur and threaten to kill En-lil, the chief Annunaki god there. This is ignored by both Annunaki and Igigi. He will get his rest by killing all of mankind with a flood.
The flood is sent and on the SEVENTH DAY all of mankind is dead, drowned in the universal flood waters, except those on a boat, who were warned by the God Ea of Eridu to build a boat and save the seed of man and animal kind for a post-flood restoral of life. Illustrated and with maps. The book is available at Amazon. My understanding? It seeks to refute Babylonian explanations for how man came to be created and why he was destroyed later in a universal flood motifs found in Genesis.
Many scholars, , understand the Hebrews took Mesopotamian myths and recast them into a monotheistic mold. By this time Hellenistic Greek ideas about the source of evil in the world, developed by Greek schools of philosophy, had come to be accepted by some Jews Greeks ruled over Judaea from BC to 65 BC. A being having the power to defy the gods and lead man into evil acts. Earlier Greek speculations taught good and evil was from the gods, Plato objected.
In Egypt, a Greek-ruled state, like Judaea, the Prince of Daemons was the Sun-god, envisioned as able to take on the form of a human being as well as that of a great serpent. This being was worshipped and implored for help by men, to overcome their enemies. This Daemon or his demonic subordinates could enter the bodies of humans and over power them, causing them to do evil acts. Human sorcerers claimed, for a fee, that they could remove Daemons from afflicted humans and restore their minds and health by invoking magic spells.
My book goes into greater detail on all of this. Two rivers flowed through Edin, the Tigris and Euphrates. Irrigation canals from these two rivers fed the gardens of the gods located at cities built and inhabitated by the gods. Eventually the gods tired of caring for their gardens in the midst of the EDIN and decide to create man to be their gardening slave. Man will care for their gardens of Edin on their behalf. I read scripture, I cannot find reference anywhere that there is not an opentire dor for this interpretation. When one reads of the creation account, it would appear factors of multiply and divide as oposed to addition or subtraction.
When the woman was created, she was created in paradise. The man was brought forth from the earth. Just like all the other creatures of the field only for by Thier hand he was made in Their likeness and image before and after they were physically seperated. The two being separated are not the Image of Most High until Most High brings them back together in a covenant of marriage. Bonnie the cat in the belly of the whale. Check the mythology of serpent and tree in other ancient literature.
If the Bible was inspired by God,than it is written for all generations ,with clues that will even make it more comprehensible in our age. But it is informative for the writer to offer the etymological concept and expressions of Hebrew language. Jesus saw that He was cast out. There is too much evidence recorded in the Bible that points to Satan being the one tempting Eve in the Garden, using the serpent as his vessel.
Even if Satan sent one of his demons to do it, he is still the one in authority over the spirits in rebellion to God. Consider that the devil, the old serpent, the great dragon, had his name placed, by the Holy Spirit, in the midst of the accusation towards the sorcerer. Those terms were revealed by God, and John wrote what he was given in the revelation.
Just something to consider. It may be true that the association of the serpent with Satan was slow in coming and not found in the OT. In fact, Philo saw it as metaphorical and Josephus did not associate it with Satan, but with a real talking animal. Nevertheless, this is not surprising, for Adam and Eve probably did not understand who the serpent was themselves since they did not even have a grasp of good and evil when this took place.
The way it is told in Genesis may very well be from the perspective of Adam and Eve, describing how they experienced it. In this way, what God wishes to teach us is founded upon a firm and logical foundation.
Modern Pesach plagues: AIDS, violence, hunger, anti-Semitism link to Exodus story today
Nevertheless, it is incorrect to assert that the apostles of Christ did not make this association between the serpent and Satan. If one compares all the NT passages about the devil, Satan, etc. This is almost certainly referring to Gen You will note that Dolansky neglects to mention that these passages not only associate Satan with the serpent, but the devil as well. It is quite clear here that the author of Revelation believes that the dragon, the old serpent, the devil, and Satan are one and the same. As admitted by Dolansky, Satan as the serpent was the understanding among the early church fathers, which includes that of Justin Martyr who penned such ideas about 50 years or so after Revelation was written.
After reading this article by Dolansky, readers should look up every passage in the NT that mentions the devil, the serpent, and Satan. The association and implication that the serpent in the garden was the devil and Satan is only a short leap of logic that necessitates this as the most probable deduction. To say that satan was just a way of describing a reptilian part of our brain, is nonsense. The bible says Jesus was tempted in every way, yet was without sin, so as He was both fully God and fully man, this idea would assume that Jesus tempted Himself as satan didnt actually exist and was just a figment of His imagination.
I find the authors ideas equally nonsensical. It is clear and precise to anyone who has read the bible that the connection between the serpent and satan is unmistakeable. According to such interpretation the Bible Stories are only fairy tales for the kids to put them to sleep or something to talk about around the camp fire.
The same answer applies to the author. That it is so is confirmed in Gen The name serpent in the garden has several Hebrew meanings and fits the story. Destroyer …. My belief is that it breathed its spirit in to Cain just like god did to Adam and Jesus did to his students to transfer his holy spirit to them. Not a word about what Judaism has to say on the matter? Angra Mainyu. It only becomes evil when we allow our selfish desires to run amok.
Basically, our Evil Impulse our inner-Satan is little more than our Survival Instinct and Sex Drive, which is linked to our biological clock i. There are no cosmic GPS coordinates for the Heavenly Court, which exists within each of us, wherein our Heavenly Father is supposed to be enthroned. In Judaism, Satan is not a fallen angel, because he stands in the Heavenly Court, day and night, accusing mankind before the Throne of G-d. This is Biblical historian who do not believe in the Bible at all!
They want to claim very different writers of Genesis. One of the reason is that the people who call them self Jews are the Hebrew or Israel of ancient time. They are by their own claim Ashkenazi which are German and Mesopotamia descent. Ebla, Summer and other ancient people wrote these facts. They also rather believe the Babylonian myth, over Moses account and if you look at them both you can easily without any interpretation see the difference. I can challenge any of these unbelieving writers to the validity of the Bible in its original form and not just the Tyndale or the King James versions!
One thing is certain, Satan does not have a bifurcated tail or a pitchfork.
He is instead attractive and clever. His seductive advice leads to pain and unhappiness. He is rather much like George Clooney, for example. Conceivably, and reasonably, whatever we call the character, he appeared to Eve in the form of a human man, and was later turned into a snake. Conceivably, and less reasonably, the character appeared to Eve in the form of, say, a talking Iguana, and was later turned into a snake.
There is much to be fleshed out in Genesis 1 through 3, where the truth about the origins of man and the conscious awareness of self and God by man is told using the mechanisms available to the late 3rd century BC writer. The Deceiver-Adversary-Accuser appears throughout the Bible, and he comes in many forms. And he still does. I see him in the news every day. Where to begin? Who is it that has knowledge of good and evil?
God, the serpent, and the cherubim angels mentioned at the end of the chapter but not including Adam and Eve before the temptation , hinting that the animal serpent was simply used by an evil version of the cherubim. Then you have the fulfillment of the enmity predicted in Gen not between humans and snakes, but between two types of men, beginning with Cain and Abel.
Psalm 74 describes the crushing of his heads, alluding to the defeat of the Egyptians at the Red Sea, using the language of Genesis Our higher brains, the seat of consciousness and spirituality, must battle with our instinctive reptilian brain in order for us to behave more like angels and less like animals. This conflict occurs within each of us, and should not be taken as a literal talking snake in the garden.
I believe this is incorrect. The Numbers passage does not contain the direct article in reference to the adversary.
This marks use as most certainly attributive, rather than a designation of rank or name. There is ample evidence for a much older date. I dont think it is clear that satan and the serpent in Genesis are not connected anywhere in the NT. Is that not the basis of sin? I think this is an example of progressive revelation, whereby God does not reveal or explain everything that is going on at the one time.
Just a talking snake? I would have thought that the book of Job should have been mentioned. There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil. And he still maintains his integrity, though you incited me against him to ruin him without any reason. On what evidence do you base this assumption of yours? To a Christian, the bible is from Genesis to Revelation. In the earliest texts of man, from the very 1st documented civilization, there is a story of adamu, which means 1st man. I doubt the site would even publish this.. What about revelation Observation of my and multitudes of others behaviour, has left one thought… That when the old serpant was tossed out, the followers as well, its hard to deny that the followers are humanity.
Take a look at how man is to other beings of life, be it human, pets, so called stock, we consume with great glee, leaving other beings of life in misery. The fact is Adam and Eve died the same day they eat the fruit in the eyes of God because in 2 Peter 3 Vs 8 says A thousand years is like one day in the eyes of the lord, so they actually died the same day and no one has ever lived more than a day ever since then.. That is most definitely is a thought provoking statement!
And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:. Also, according to all people of today are concerned, we all have come to understand up to this point that is the answers here can only have one resolution on hand, Adam willfully disobeyed God and we people of today have indirectly become a very long ranged unwilling victim of a widespread generational enemy called, spiritual death; much of us extreme high tech minded seekers of our own unanswerable mysteries are still yet spiritually dead to Godly will and ways.
In fact, the churches in our day and time strongly implies God sort of had an assumed idea things at the beginning of physical creation would just work out to be good and ok with mankind, and that mankind would remain morally upright and not sin. However if anyone here has any doubts over any of the inspired findings recorded here in this Godly inspired book, please take the challenge for yourselves, seek and search it out and see what you can determine for yourselves.
The results of the possible potentials above would then be just as clear as they are stranger still to us today. We people of today would not have ever come to know of the freedom of our own self will, not without the performance of Satan in our world at the time. Of course, through the saving sacrifice of Jesus Christ, which by the way, was actually never really needed on earth to start with if Adam had refused to disobey God. And furthermore, I believe if more people of today knew just a little more about exactly why Satan so very suddenly sprung out of the dynamic heavenly emotions of the archangel Lucifer, and then suddenly went forward, straight from the very midsection or the midst of the awesome creative perfection of the Holy realm of God, I absolutely believe with all my spiritual heart the entire Christian world will soon begin to take up where Jesus left off some two thousand years ago.
If anyone on this planet earth today believes they have a much better way here or a better understanding, and perhaps even a much more creditable and more provable explanation, all concerning the ongoing and highly unresolved mystery, behind the yet adverse existence of Satan currently existing on planet earth today, I really would love to hear about it, please…! I cannot fully understand exactly why the major portion of all churches, or the pulpits, ministers and preachers alike and in general do not see Satan for exactly what he truly is. In fact, Satan is actually nothing more and nothing less than a specially created motivating tool, one God personally created and also personally placed in our home world in order to help God in the emotional and spiritual development of mankind.
I do understand your concerns here and I do agree with you on some of your issues. I mean it is so simple a child can know the mysteries of the Kingdom of God. There is no learning on the planet that can teach any human being what they need to know about The Kingdom of God except by the guidance and teaching of The Holy Ghost.
And even for that to happen one must first be sincere in their seeking of truth. I know there is no one who will listen to simple so they grapple with complex and confusion and God is not the author of confusion. There is no other way and if anyone thinks there is then they will never come to the truth until after this life. The archangel Lucifer was indeed the absolute most ideal cutting edge power source perfectly suited for God to use as a most ideal a-moralistic opposing option standing before all of mankind, and to also be used best as a second great contending, extreme alternative, candidate, or a competitor, the best kind of competitor God truly needed for Him to one day finally achieve that very special love and acknowledgment from an extremely gratefully saved sinner a person , and from a vast collective of human beings who were once all spiritually dead, but had now developed to become spiritually retrieved from a wasted state of absolute eternal damnation in a hellish state of existence.
God had personally set up any and all of the very special events unfolding before Adam and the entire world of today and all of the particular spiritual developments as well, and also the entire human race has had absolutely no good idea at all for many thousands of years on end, I mean , exactly how all of these mysterious events and all of these extreme Godly created particulars have all come together and also worked together in total and absolute ongoing relationship with our current day sinful state of human existence.
This is exactly why any and all kinds of human excuses will absolutely be of very, very little use and also of no real value unto a spiritually lost sinner or a spiritually backslider Christian believer , necessary for some drummed up defiance strategy, not while standing face to face with God, at the gathering of the big one, the extreme final judgment day.
Folks do not believe the tree of the knowledge of good and evil is gone today or even out of working existence, even down through the many thousands of yeas past, the same tree still stands tall in our super high tech powered home world of today. This very same killer tree may not look like a tree anymore because it has changed in appearance. That same forbidden fruit tree still stands right in the very center of all of human activity today. God is yet walking in the center of our activities, in the cool of our days; He is speaking out and asking where we are.
Will you answer Him, and what will you answer when He comes…? So in Zechariah an appointed being in communion with God is rebuked for doing his job, trying to instigate punishments against the righteous man. But, no, this is not Satan. Many concepts are mentioned only in passing, or merely hinted.
Other than that, there is no mention of the concept until the later prophets in any clear, unambiguous, non-poetic terms. Furthermore, absolutely no one on planet earth today fully understands exactly how it all was first intended to workout for that misunderstood fallen archangel of God called, Lucifer; and also, not many fully understands how God personally chose the archangel Lucifer to personally interact within the deep political, social, and religious affairs of mankind, and Satan was there in the Garden of Eden attempting to strongly motivate Adam and Eve first and afterwards all of mankind into gaining that same freedom of self will God had in mind the whole time.
Why does the Bible say that we are gods? | Exchanged Life Discipleship
Anyone else have any better ideas here I would love to hear it…? Frankly speaking posting board, without the extreme evil and harsh adverse interactions of old Satan within our home world, from the days of Adam and Eve up until today, the first man Adam would have never ever had the absolute best opportunity to self achieve his own self will, and we people of today would have never ever come to know the express joys of salvation through Jesus Christ, for our extremely needful souls by the way.
The total physical end and absolute destruction of the archangel Lucifer was not the case with the archangel Lucifer, for God to just kill off old Lucifer was absolutely not planned at all by God, not to start with ad not until the end of human life on planet earth, God no doubt had something else or something much, much more dynamically important in mind for the adverse creation of the archangel, Lucifer.
Look at the next set of Biblical scriptures and perhaps we can come to better understand exactly why our God personally chose not to destroy Lucifer, not at the time of his iniquitous rebellion towards God. And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, 3.
And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. But what about the time laps between Adam and Eve and the total destruction of Satan at the complete end of our physical home world…? I is clear by now, Satan is to remain loose and very much active and alive throughout the entire times between the day and time of Adam and Eve and the end of our Home world.
We are talking about many thousands of earth years of human trials and errors…and testing by the devil. But during those long times, why has God allowed Satan to tempt and influence the entire human race that is the untold mystery our world has remained confuse over for do very long now…? Even after the mighty archangel of God Michael who was holding a great chain in hi hand to bind up Lucifer Satan for a thousand years, God still had another task in mind for Lucifer or Satan to accomplish on earth, at least before that old fallen archangel was to be totally and absolutely destroyed, once and for all.
Also check out the following scripture. And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, 8. And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are , and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
His end time destruction has already been set in order, determined, allotted, and Godly scheduled to unfold at the absolute end of the world of human existence. Stop saying there is a spiritual war underway between God and Satan, that idea is childish at its best…! The real spiritual war is waging away between mankind and God…!
Attention here, here comes the infallible answers many millions of confused people have sought to discover for many thousands of years now. The real facts here can be clear to most anyone today, our home world actually needs an evil adverse Satan moving all around within it; our home world also needs a forgiving and saving God Jesus Christ to show us exactly how loving and how absolutely powerful our God can truly be in their lives, and also can forgive all people. Folks really think about this real good for awhile…? Without that old adverse evil Godly created thing called Satan existing and running all around within our minds and also throughout the entire 21st century home world of today, who today would begin to strive hard to seek out that loving favoritism and total forgiveness from a Godly Being that can free them from their nightmares, a God much like The Most High God…?
God was in total and absolute possession of the more greater kind of knowledge and wisdom, of course…! We can also see here in the scripture God gives the archangel Lucifer many precious stones to ware as a covering garment or perhaps it worked as a breastplate. This is not really all our God had planned and long intended to unfold from within the mighty archangel Lucifer, and what Lucifer was to actually evolve to become.
God then endorses it all by personally speaking and clearly informing us people of today of this fact, He did so through the writings of His Godly crated Biblical words of extreme Godly authority The Holy Bible. Take note of the next Biblical Scripture real good. This is also talking about a point or a time framing event that happened long before the Biblically recorded events found in the gospel book of Genesis, chapter 1: verse 1 and onward.
From all of the Biblical information we now have on hand today and all of the particular scriptures listed here in this inspired writing, it is now, today, it is at this time we may come to see some Biblical evidence badly needed to help us best determine exactly why God decided to create the favored archangel called, Lucifer. But we see Lucifer was to actually serve as a second great existing optional extreme; in other words, God being one great optional extreme as a contender against Lucifer , and of course the archangel Lucifer being the other great optional option as a contender to God.
The above is absolutely not attempting not in the least way possible to suggest the mighty was a equal opponent towards God. But Lucifer was the best God had made to challenge Himself in that great spiritual war to come on earth one day……. Sorry about the mistake in using the correct scriptures above.
I said look in John chapter 2….. I actually meant…. Which I was actually referring the John, chapter 1…my mistake…sorry folks…? What and who is Satan Have we ever wondered what great super enhanced knowledge and extreme wisdom would actually do to a simple flesh and blood non-angelic limited thinking human being…? Far too much of a good thing folks just may not be all that good of a thing after all. The actual long overlooked and widely seldom if ever recognized fact being presented here is this; since we all basically know beyond any shadow of a doubt our God absolutely makes no known creative mistakes and He absolutely makes no creative blundering errors in any of His Godly creative ways, this absolute indisputable fact here alone would or it should logically tell us our all knowing God can truly handle any kind of extreme super enhanced knowledge and also any kind of extremely superior wisdom He currently possesses within Himself; God can do so without any personal problems to Himself, absolutely any whatsoever…!
Exactly where did evil come from; did evil mysteriously come from the mighty archangel Lucifer, or did evil oddly come from the same God who created the mighty archangel, Lucifer, did evil come from our God…? O-boy, there it is folks…! However, think about these next two potentials and likelihoods before offering an answer to the above question s.
First; if one were to say or proclaim the adverse existence of evil came from the fallen archangel Lucifer, one would actually be saying, Lucifer is a godly creator himself, and Lucifer also has the same kind of godly abilities and the same supreme creative godly powers to fashion and to create things, things much like the Most High God can. God is the very same Almighty God who also once created the archangel Lucifer.
Secondly; on the other hand, if one were to say the adverse knowledge of evil was only created by the Almighty or Most Holy God, one would also be saying, our believed good creating Almighty God, not only personally created the existence of evil, God also uses evil and personally deals with human life on planet earth all of mankind , by subtly exploiting and slightly utilizing both concepts of the knowledge of good and evil…!
Therefore one would also be saying God uses the adverse powers of evil as well as the powers of good in order to develop and expose mankind to. As the story goes, especially throughout the entire 21st century Christian world of our days and times one could safely say , all Christian believers believe their good creating only God has absolutely nothing at all to do with the existence of the evil adverse existence of Satan existing here on our planet earth, absolutely nothing at all…! Therefore exactly what are we all left to believe here today; if we were to all go by the majority rule as being proclaimed by the entire Christian world of our day and time, we are only left with but one possible solution to deal with here, God created Satan, emphatically so.
Where did he come from and whom do any of us think created old Satan anyway…? If the all-knowing, all-mighty, and the absolute most super powerful Creator there is in and throughout all of existence , and strangely enough some people have said God is not responsible for the origin of evil. Within the past 45 years alone I have read through the old traditional King James Version Holy Bible no less than 6 times.
Who can rightly explain the wondrous mystery behind my now higher understanding into Gods Holy Words or my so-called upgraded manner of understanding and much better education…? Only God knew then and knows now why this exponential learning has unfolded as fast as it did and why it all happened to me within my old age or latter years. Since those very long struggling years attempting to better myself educationally I mean.
I found myself standing directly in front of a utility mirror in a drug rehab center in the Blue Ridge Smoky Mountains of western North Carolina and looking at a very, very strange reflective type image playing out within the mirror reflection. Frankly speaking I felt God must have felt it was about time for Him to unpack, undo, and oddly unfold what He had within Godly mind the whole for my life. The vision lasted all night long, from Darkness to Sunup. I finally come to see it was not just for me but for the entire world. I come to learn after some 5 years had past this same vision was the same vision Biblically predicted to come to our last days world, as is clearly found written and recorded in the gospel book of HABAKKUK, chapter 2: verses 2 through 7 2 And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.
It also unfolded the exact reason and purpose God unfolded His very official act of creation under Himself. God revealed to me the moving motivating powers working deep inside of Himself and how it was that strong motivating power source strongly moved and compelled Him to start creating all of the things existing under Himself then, and now today. God also clearly showed me in the vision exactly how the mighty archangel called Lucifer was intentionally created just to do His work and His bidding in far the days to come, on our planet earth.
God revealed the mystery of Satan to me and told me one day the world will need to come to see that Satan is merely a tool needed to test and try the human race, to see just how loyal they will be to His honor and His needs to not be all alone again. There is very much more to the Vision but much more than I can put here on these pages. The world has it all wrong and God said the Vision should work to set the lost world right again, but it will come only at it appointed time, so wait for it, it will surely come.
This is all I have to say now, so good bye for now and go with God in your hearts…. Frankly it appears people here get off on saying words that sounds highly important and well educated lingo. Perhaps you people need to work on it a little bit more here and search much deeper into what motivated God to even start His first create act of Godly creation existing under Himself long before Genesis …?
There is a whole lot more I could add here but hopefully this will be enough for you…? A mistake. I should be: there is no causal connection between God, Creator, and creatures devilish acts as privations of good. Genesis 3 did not directly associate a serpent with Satan, but indirectly it says that God is not responsible for the origin of evil acts. C, it fits perfectly with the classical philosophy that evil is a privation of good; therefore not a being being as oneness, truth, and goodness. Consequently, there is no causal connection between God, Creator, and creatures beings. Too abstract for the ignorant in philosophy and logic?
Very Interesting topic. Thanks BAR. More studies can wear us out. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. The above article is full of doctrinal error. Pandora was specifically instructed not to open the box, but Time seduced her and and she opened the box out of curiosity that brought out death and all the evil of the world.
Eve was specifically instructed not to eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge, but Time seduced her and she ate its fruit out of curiosity that brought death and exile from the garden of eden. Thus Time is the Snake and curiosity is the Satan. After eating the forbidden fruit of knowledge, man became conscious and thus lost the primitive animal innocence, he came to understand death and other natural and artificial evils like illness, war, jealousy, money etc, before that he was just another animal unaware of the death and other evils.
He exiled himself out of the nature into the Civilized world, the artificial villages and cities of the world. The Lord cursed Time the lifetime spent by man on Earth , that it would crawl on its belly and eat dust— The daily grind of the routine work makes us feel like Time is crawling on its belly and nothing lasts forever, youth, beauty, love, money, fame, everything changes to dust in side Time, hence Time eats dust.
Thus Humans have to plan the sowing of seeds ahead of time and then as per the plan procure the seeds, actually perform the actions by moving their hands and feet to sow and subsequently harvest the produce. So He drove out the man; and He placed at the east of the garden of Eden the cherubim, and the flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way to the tree of life.
The Young have Hope the flaming sword that can cut through all adversity turned every way so that the Human race keeps procreating and bring forth new generations to keep the way to the tree of life or else if the young are exposed and corrupted by evils of the scientific knowledge, civilization and society, they will decide that the world is too evil to bring forth the next generation and abstain from procreating and the Human race will die out as is happening in the Developed world due to the low birth rates.
Genesis is a very advanced scientific and psychological message in this interpretation, shrouded in the secret code of snake, satan, civilization, youth and hope. If you were bit? Before it, you did your thing — And you lived. This is no small matter, in the lands of cobras, of asps. The Bronze Serpent was destroyed during the reign of Hezekiah c.
It was destroyed, because the Israelites were burning incense to it —.
For unto these days, were the sons of Israel, making perfume to it. If you read the text critically, you will see, that the issue was not idol worship, nor apostasy, nor the incorporation of foreign gods into the worship of YHWH. The issue, was the control of all YHWH worship in one single location, under the hand of one small familial group, who were descended from Levi and Aharon.
Even some of the Levites — Especially, the descendants of Moshe — Objected, to this abomination of centralization. You have to know what you are reading, within the cultural and historical context of the times, to be able to properly interpret actions — And, more importantly, Within the Mind of YHWH — To Be Able To Understand the motives, which underscore said actions.
Aharon wanted to centralize worship under their control, in the South. I prefer the YHWH who you can kick back with under a tree, in the breezy shade and the grass, by a small flowing stream. Did not even enter into the picture, until after worship was centralized. And the Anointed Enter Within the Sanctuary, in spite of everything that the Church of man does, to prevent it. Thank you for this article.
I appreciate the time it took to dig into this. I will help guide me in my our studies. This was one of the most disappointing articles I have seen in Biblical Archeological Review. Clearly no one qualified reviewed the article before it was published. Here are just a couple of the factual errors:.
However, while some do treat the two instances in Nu. The ESV is inconsistent i. Two more could be added if we accepted the contention that instances in Nu. I found this article really interesting. As Christians we are taught that Lucifer, Satan and the devil are one and the same. Regarding God cursing the serpent to crawl on the ground and what kind of creature was it before it was cursed. Is there anything in scripture to indicate that the curse on this creature was just to that individual alone?
You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust all the days of your life. It would have been even more poignant if it had been. Dustin, quick question, how can Eve know that eating the apple is evil, if she only gains the knowledge of good and evil after having eaten it? As an exegesic reader of the scriptures, and a believer of His preserved Word, I would have to say that you are heretical. Satan is one of many names given to the fallen angel, just as Savior references Jesus Christ. Is is mentioned, along with evil spirits numerous times in the old and new testiment. He was noted to walk in the garden of Eden until inequity was found in him.
Evil and darkness are always the abscence of goodness, not some twisted Mr. Hyde side of God. Please be careful when you post things contrary to God says in His word. The end of Revelations warns you about what may happen. In Christ always,. And this is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom, but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words.
The natural man does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God. For they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. It would do well for all men to first be born again of the Holy Spirit before writing opinions about the Word of God. You know what, the serpent in the garden of Eden could be symbolic for Satan rather than a talking snake? In a way this symbolism would make sense because the animal we all know that spoke like a man was a donkey of the prophet Baalim but then again the strangest things have happened.
So Satan might have the power to possess animals by making them talk. Mind you he does with humans. I guess its back to the drawing board. Recent scholarship is no proof either. In the end, like the bible, scholarship says what you want it to so. This article provides a useful corrective to anachronistic exegesis of Scripture that would import later ideas into earlier texts.
