Thanks CycloManiac for those scriptures from the Cepher. what about the one from Chapter one creation of Adam? Gen 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
Gen 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
Could you please copy and paste that as well?Or tell me is the eth included CycloManiac?
This is the same verse that TexasWoman is asking about here, and sorry, but I did not see your question earlier, strangely, TW. ( we have a lot in common, btw.) I too have pondered this, Some "scholars" teach that this Eloheem is not singular, and so this could be a lot of men created in the images of this "plural group" of entities. Is this where each race we know came into being? Were they formed according to members likenesses? Dr. Michael Heiser teaches this group as his understanding
I too am so glad to find this place and know that next week I hope to have a Cepher so I can quit asking those kinds of questions. TW I am looking forward to all the discussions we are going to have here on everything Cepher, what fun!
While posting and pondering CycloManiac, I thought of what you said about other children and looked again at what the Word says here in Genesis: Gen 4:25 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.
Gen 4:26 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 Yahuah
( my fix)
Doesn't this seem to be that the lineage of Messiah is continued after Cain is established elsewhere and his lineage or the seed of the serpent's lineage is given ? At the time that Cain has asked this question of the Elohym there wouldn't have been anyone to fear at all, so why would he have done so?
If these thoughts and understanding processed from my mind are not what scripture teaches, then where do we get the races? Why do we have such diversity in hair, skin, eyes even form if we all came from the same DNA pools? ( that would be Messiah's ( Seth) and the serpents ( Cain) Can you help me understand this through the Word? I cannot wait to read the book of enoch from the Cepher to see if the insight comes from there.
