The man [האדם, ha·a·dam) was created from the dust of the earth and it was Yehovah Himself who breathed the breath of “life” into the man.
And Yehovah Elohim [THE lawmaker and judge] formed the man [ha·a·dam] of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils a breath of life [חיים, cha·yim]. And the man became a living soul. (Gen 2:7)
The word used for “life” here is in its plural form, and understanding the Hebrew plural is very important. Yehovah was not breathing the breath of “lives” into the man [ha·a·dam ], He was breathing the “big life,” the qualitative LIFE. This “LIFE” was after His own image; The man [ha·a·dam] was created to be an immortal being with Yehovah’s glory, and His honor and His immortality in him. The Psalmist sees this also.
What is a man [אנושׁ, enosh – mortal man] that You are mindful of him. And a son [ובן, ben] of man [אדם, adam] that You visit him? For You have made him a little lower than Elohim [מאלהים, Elohim]. And You have crowned him with glory and honor. (Psa 8:4-5)
The Man [Ha·a·dam] had access to the tree of “LIFE” [חיים, cha·yim]; and yes, that is that same plural word used above in the creation of [the man] ha·a·dam. But the man [ha·a·dam] failed to walk according to Yehovah’s created purpose and took it upon himself to defy Yehovah’s life-giving instructions.
Behold the man [ha·a·dam] is become as first from his kind [ממנו, min] to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of LIFE, and eat, and live forever”—therefore Yehovah Elohim sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken. Gen 3:22-23
The man [ha·a·dam], by choosing to disobey Yehovah His lawmaker and judge, created a new “kind” on the earth; but this kind had no glory or honor or immortality. Instead of being a seed of Yehovah and dwelling in His created image, the man [ha·a·dam] has now become a seed of Belial, one of Satan’s very fragile and temporal seeds. Of course, Yehovah did say,
… but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.” (Gen 2:17)
The man [ha·a·dam] died a spiritual death the day that he ate from that forbidden tree and without a remedy for that situation he would be no more than a walking dead man, having less standing before Yehovah than a pig; ha, at least all the pigs of this world are doing what they were created to do.
And that is the condition that all men are in today. Look what it says in Genesis 5.
And Adam lived one hundred and thirty years, and begot a son in his own likeness, in his image, and named him Seth. (Gen 5:3)
Every man born since the fall of the man [ha·a·dam] is nothing more than the walking dead of the earth, the seed of belial. I think this is why Yeshua said “let the dead bury the dead.”
But, as I said, there is a remedy to every man’s fallen condition; and that remedy is to be born a 2nd time as a firstborn son/seed of Yehovah and become Israel’s seed. Yehovah’s message to Pharaoh through Moses was this:
Then thou shall say to Pharaoh, ‘Thus says Yehovah: “My son, My firstborn, is Israel. So I say to thee, let My son go that he may serve Me. (Exo 4:22-23)
We, Israel, were not released from Egypt until we had left our old elohim (the lawmakers and judges of Egypt) and then at Passover drew near and became Yehovah’s Ezrach seed or Elohim Kind. This is the reason why I work so hard to help folks understand how a Gentile first becomes a Ger and then, at Passover, an Ezrach. Only His Ezrach man is the spiritually born seed who has the glory, honor and immortality restored in him. And only this man will find “LIFE,” cha·yim eternal. After the fall of the man [ha·a·dam] Yehovah said these words to Satan.
And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed. He shall bruise thy head, and thou shall bruise his heel.” (Gen 3:15)
I think that people conveniently forget that Satan and women do not have physical seed. Satan is a spiritual being and the woman whom Yehovah is talking about is also a spiritual being, not a flesh one! Who is this woman who bears seed? Oh my – we are so lost in our doctrines and traditions of men. Here is Yehovah’s bride, the woman.
For as a young man [בחור, ba·chur] marries [יבעל, ba’·al] a virgin [בתולה, be·tu·lah], so Thou shall marry [יבעל, ba’al] Thy sons [בניך, benim]. And as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall thy Elohim rejoice over thee. (Isa 62:5)
The spiritually born seed is the seed of the woman who is going to destroy all of Satan’s seed, the seed of belial, in the coming last days. Seed always produces after its own kind, and in the last days it is the spiritually born seed who births more spiritually born seed a.k.a “the male child.”
So much to learn – and so little time. These first three chapters are foundational to all future understanding concerning Yehovah’s eternal and unchanging word; and failure to understand them will pervert all future understandings and cause us to remain in the broad road and in our darkness.
Please, I know the first 3 chapters will require 8 hours of listening, but it will be life to those who will invest their time and energy to search out the truth for themselves. I can only point you in the right direction; the rest is up to you.
Here is part 2 of the fall of the man.
