Genesis Roots of the Organic Law
Our Blushing Fathers and Our Life Bearing Mothers
Will Bless the Earth YHWH Gives Us.
It is a studied opinion that the book of Genesis as we speak of it’s finished work today was originally able to be distinguished in it’s different parts by keeping track of the points where theses books are mentioned by use of the word of Generations.
The beginning of the synopsis of all creation thus:
Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
The next section of the details of Generation is seen in
Gen 2:4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created
The text speaks plainly about the placement of Gen_2:5-6 as with in the 6th creation day as the prior verse tells us “in the DAY that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens, AND every plant of the field before it was in the earth, AND every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, AND there was not a ADaM to till the ground.”
Seemingly it is not until ADaM awoke from his deep sleep that the 7th day occurs, as all creative function plainly attributed to the 6th day creation of all souls or creatures occurs, this including ADaM among them.
With in the out line or synopsis of Genesis 1 let us reflect upon the details of YHWH God’s reasoning as expressed to why He purposed to Generate or Create the race of ADaM upon the Earth:
1st To be a Father: when God speaks of Adam he says Let us make ADaM in our own Image, after our Likeness a phrase which is Echoed through out the scripture when speaking of Men bearing sons as plainly seen in the birth of Adam the patriarchs son Seth whom he begat in his own likeness, after his image… Gen_5:3
2nd The Father sought to give the son an inheritance which he created with his own hands and had worked for as seen in the statement “Let them have dominion..” over his creation
3rd the Father sought to bless His children for maintaining the order of fruitfulness and multiplicity as the means by which ADaM would subdue the earth.
These are the governing Organic principles of why ADaM is on the earth, and they are dictated by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit in this order and according to this precise wording. All relevance to any son of man or correctly son of ADaM to his purpose in life is contained in this small section of Holy writ, the very Genesis of God’s Law, that is why I call it Organic. It is the most elementary of reasons for every Law and Word God has ever given on any particular subject mentioned by God Almighty and every intention of the heart or mind of man.
When dealing with the race of men called ADaM it is of necessity to remember the book that has taught and continues to reveal the History of this race and the specific man named ADaM, as all other places in the bible Genesis 1:26 is a selection from among the living creatures or also translated in English living souls: In Hebrew both term are NePeSh HeYEh, which simply refers to a Breathing Life, the term is applied to all creatures that breath and live, including men, which when dealing with men our translators chose to use the term living soul. It is thus sustained that in reflection now upon the aspects of ADaM’s Genesis as further specified in the detail of Gen_2:7-15 the specific selection YHWH God has made in His creation of Living Souls, and as to who he will name His children, after His Likeness and after His Image, a likeness and Image which can not mearly be reduced to sight and senses, but must also encompass Spiritual as it is evident that “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. Joh_4:24″
Yet in Gen_2:16 the LXX clearly helps us understand the Hebrew and English as it uses the name Adam distinctly for the first time. This fact is used as indication of where the individual who has the name Adam is chosen out of the created race of ADaM (Eh’ADaM). It is important to keep focused, as Adam was created as head of the people, and it is he who was the recorded progenitor of the Paternal line of our Lord and Savior. This fact of selection is important as well as it explains who Adam’s children married as to not violate the Eternal law’s which prohibit incest (Lev_18:1-17, Lev_19:9-24), which is due to this lack of information the normal explanation of Adam’s procreation.
Below is a list where the LXX shows the named man Adam distinct from his race:
Gen_2:16, 2:19, 2:20, 2:21, 2:22, 2:23, 2:25, 3:8, 3:9, 3:12, 3:17; 3:20, 3:21, 3:22, 3:24, 4:1, 4:25, 5:1, 5:2, 5:3, 5:4, 5:5; Deu_32:8; 1Chr1:1; Tob_8:6; Sir_40:1, 49:16.
The next portion of the Written record that was added to the Book of Genesis in ancient times as ADaM’s people recorded their History is then found in:
Gen_5:1 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created Adam, in the likeness of God made he him;
Gen 5:2 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.
and Beyond we may continue to see the rightly called Compilation Book of Genesis as the Bible’s Family history records, the Genealogy books. the next added portions of the ancient records are seen in the following as specific placements of God’s selection upon a particular chosen person or people:
Gen_10:1 :The sons of Noah: Shem, Ham, and Japheth;
Gen_25:19 : Isaac;
Yet undoubtedly as well the circular poetry of Almighty God can in the future manifestation of the heir and son of God, Jesus Christ must here be praised, He, the son of man which is literally the son of ADaM, Mat 16:13, who took on the seed of Abraham Heb_2:16, the son of David Joh_7:42. Thus the book of Mathew has it’s literal name as: The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. Mat_1:1 who’s genealogy is traced back in the Book of Luke to Adam the Son of God Luk_3:38.
Thus the book we rightly call the book of Genesis according to it’s Greek name is as we understand it in English the Book of Generations or Origins, thus when we speak of the 5th Commandment which commands the honoring that is valuing of our Fathers and Mothers we are ultimately forced to look at our Genesis, generations and origins.
Yes, ultimately the Bible is a book of a chosen seed, and the focus from Genesis to revelation is upon the Genealogy of the Man descended from the line of Adam Jesu(s) Christ the son of man that is the son of Adam and the son of God. Yet in the periphery of this focus upon the seed destine to come to crush the head of sin contained in selfish attributes of the serpents deception upon the self of the Adam who first sought to be a god like YHWH God judging good and evil, with in this context we find the kindred of the seed to come, that is his brothers by his Father YHWH and his fathers and mothers according to the flesh by being the son of Adam as well.
Now let us reflect back upon who this selection is, what is the likeness and Image of Christ’s brothers and fathers.
The Name ADaM is descriptive in this way is a term of the physiognomy of our Parents found in Gen 1, 2,3. Like all racial terms used unto this day, the name ADaM is descriptive of the likeness and Image of the biblical people mentioned from Genesis to present day. This word, as well according to ancient customs as well modern legal language encompasses the legal construct of what persons we reference when speaking of “man and men”, through out the Hebrew Bible when speaking of the race of Adam. for those who use a Stong’s Concordance this take a look at Strong’s # H119, H120, H121, H122, H123, H124, H125, H127, H132 and a biblical word search in your KJV for the word ‘Ruddy’ will reveal 1Sa_16:12; 1Sa_17:42; Son_5:10; Lam_4:7 all Hebrew words are variations of the word ADaM. And for extra consideration the same Hebrew word meaning Ruddy is as well used to describe young King David the 28th grandfather of our Lord, this word was as well used to describe Esau at the time of his birth…thus Esau and David king of Israel were both of the Ruddy or Blushing variety of man kind.
When we consider the honor to be bestowed upon our Blushing Fathers in the scope of the 5th Commandment, let us draw some important connections
In Gen_1:26 ADaM was given a dominion in their blessed state. In the 5th Commandment we are told to honor our father and mother that our days may be prolonged in the Land or Earth… The word Land or Earth is in Hebrew called ADaMEh , this is of course so in Genesis as well when speaking of the earth ADaM was to be taken from as well as to till ADaM is the root word of the word ADaMEh the word for ‘land’ or ‘earth’ that is the soil aspect of the land or earth.
This peotry recounts the intrinsic connection ADaM’s creation was to have with the Earth or ADaMEh, as the root of the word Earth is ADaM and Not ADaM from the Earth, thus we may clearly see that the Earth was named with ADaM’s Governance of it in the mind of God, just as we see A-DaM rooted in the word DaM, which is Red/Blood from whence the term ADaM is derived. As many living creatures bleed it is acknowledged ADaM was not named due to this special feature, but rather as already shown, due to His physiognomy Ruddy or Blushing quality special to His likeness and his image which if reproduced according to the Genesis order “after his kind”, will multiply ADaM People.
We have also to mention our Life Bearing mothers of this same ADaM people.
Of the curse upon the Females and Males of ADaM as found in Gen 3,
A curse which was also the promise of the seed of a woman which would crush the head of sin,
Gen_3:16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.
Gen_3:17 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 ADaMEh for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life…
Gen_3:19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ADaMEh; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
Gen_3:20 And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.
It has as well been said that the phrase above has been ascribed to EVE due her being the mother of all races of people. Yet the text plainly dose not say this, rather we read a very direct reference to Gen_3:15 “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.”
The mother Eve was to be life of what was to be the Life who was to be the Light of the world, The Light of Men (ADaM) and the fulfillment of the prophecy upon the serpent’s head. This life can be traced throughout the genealogy of Israel and particularly to Christ from the time of this statement: Gen_27:46, Rth_4:15
The Book is inescapably a book of selection, the selection of a chosen people from out of other people, of genes from out of genes. It is this first selection that that will be focused upon to call upon the organic nature and genesis roots of the 5th Commandment.
A Concept that while it is implied into the Hebrew thought, the Greeks and Persian’s spoke of more plainly as we do today, that is referring to ones Genetic make up as one’s Blood, in the Biblical Hebrew thought physiognomy of flesh and bone was the way kindred connection was communicated,KJV this is seen in Gen_2:23; Gen_29:14; Jdg_9:2; 2Sa_5:1; 2Sa_19:13; 1Ch_11:1. And when specifying ADaM people this is even more so true in the knowledge of the usage of the word ADaM throughout the Hebrew Scriptures as a word which literally references the Blushing or Ruddy complexion of the Kindred called by that name, and given the dominion blessing mandate.
Gen 1:27 So God created ADaM in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
Gen 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
Thus when we speak of the Genesis Law of the 5th Commandment the concept of the nature of Blood and Land are irrseperable, a Concept which focuses upon the Kindred of ADaM as found in the people of Israel, yet is as Organic in nature that all peoples, and creatures follow this same patern by meer nature, that is namely that a creature which is bound to an environment due to it’s parentage will covet that Land of Nativity.
Gen_4:10 …The voice of thy brother’s blood(DaMY) crieth unto me from the ground ADaMEh.
Not only is the beauty of Hebrew poetry here seen in the words above described but the connection to the life Blood or DaM of ADaM crying from the ADaMEh is as well seen, a situation between brothers which in it’s action dishonors father and Mother.
Gen_9:6 Whoso sheddeth man’s (ADaM’s) blood (DaM), by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.
Thus the very preservation of the blood is as well a preseservation of the union made between parents of a Child, the life which resides in his or her individual blood is a testament of the life made by the union of flesh and bone seen in the Genesis Command:
Gen 2:23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
Gen 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
Considering the English KJV bible, notice Paul’s 5th Commandment admonition of
Eph 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
Eph 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
Eph 5:27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
Eph 5:28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.
Eph 5:29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
Eph 5:30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
Eph 5:31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
Eph 5:32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
Eph 5:33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
Eph 6:1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.
Eph 6:2 Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;)
Eph 6:3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
Eph 6:4 And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
The Greek construct is as well found in the Septuagint translation of the portion of Paul’s epistle quoting Ex 20:12’s 5th commandment, the word ‘Earth’ is seen in place of the word ‘Land’ found in the KJV of the Law. Both the words, land and Earth are often translated from the same Hebrew word ADaMEh, which specifically references the soil or the dust of the Earth (ARTz), the farm land particularly connected with the wealth of the dweller by it’s agricultural value. Thus, while the commandemnt given by Moses is focusing upon the Land of Israel, the literal soil given to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and further conquered by the Children of Israel by dispossesion of the Caananite, Perrezite, and other mentioned peoples, this Command is by no means limited to the Land of Israel as the border and boundries of blessing, as seen in Paul’s admonition. Rather this level of the tarrafirma, the soil called in Hebrew ADaMEh was named after it’s root word and inheiritor ADaM, who was the the creature of dominion seen in Gen_1:25-27 and Gen_2:5-6.
