Beginnings and Endings
"Forgotten Books of Eden/ The Story of Adam and Eve"
--God made himself known to Adam and Eve in the beginning, after they sinned and were expelled from the Garden of Eden. He instructed them on how to live and exist on the (post-garden) earth. Their story, including how God promised he would come in the future and restore mankind to paradise is recorded in the books of Adam and Eve. This was part of the original Bible manuscripts. It was every bit authentic in its origin. Later it was removed by church councils from our bible (in about 1800). What is mentioned by historians is that the center books of the bible , the Apocrypha, were removed from bibles being printed for shipment to the western world. These books were soon deemed as insignificant, but they are in print separately today: My focus remains on what is titled "The Forgotten Books of Eden", telling the account of Adam and Eve, and the first five generations leading up to Enoch, and his son Noah and the flood. It is sad that it was kept out of our modern bible, for it tells the answers to the populating of earth, exact genealogy, and dispels any myth told today of *angels being married to mankind. Nonetheless it affirms that the "Sons of God", were the children of Adam and his descendants; and the "daughters of men" were simply the descendants of Cain. Cain who was cursed of God became very wicked and had established another city, of which God told Adam, Seth and his descendants to remain apart from. God considered Adam his chosen seed. There is so much that we learn by re-establishing the significance of this Book of Eden. If you're wondering, This study does not contradict the bible account in any way. It is the rest of the story of creation that has been left out of our current bible: It is surmised that it was done so largely to save the cost of ink, total size of the bible, and to lower the overall cost of printing and sending large shipments around the world by eliminating 1/3 of its text. There are other books of Philippians, of Isaiah, Odes of Solomon, and a few more. I just wish the books of Adam and Eve had remained for the stated reasons, and points I don't time to write here.
Genesis 6 King James Version (KJV)
6 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
3 And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
6 And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
Sir Isaac Newton, on End Times Prophecy
Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1927 AD); studied end time Prophecy and wrote many documents about the events and times of the end, through his extensive bible knowledge, but his works weren't found and published until 200 years later, in 1968, they were found in the home of a Pennsylvania aristocrat, and now the writings are in Israel and his dates of post- bible events/end times are accepted as authentic dates. He places the time of the final end in 2060. He was convinced that God intended for us to study, and to know the exact events of Bible prophecy, otherwise, he argued, that God wouldn't have given us the scriptures and prophecies to study. Also many commands in the bible to study, to learn, to find truth, and to discover Gods power and glory in the fulfillment of the Earths destiny. At the end of his life, Sir Isaac had hidden his writings in faith, knowing that he would be put to death had he brought them to the public of his day, and also that he knew if God called him to discover and write of the Apocalypse, then God would bring someone to discover them in the future, after his death. - Though I do not give his studies Biblical authority, I respect and validate his research as authenticate and usable for estimating the time of the end. As a Christian and Bible Student I have my own observations and dateline which has always given me a belief that the end will not occur until after 2030, as I include the lifespan of Jesus to the dispensation/timeline of 2000 years. Yes, it is ok to watch, and be ready. Paul said, " but ye, brethren, are not in darkness that it shall take you by surprise". I Thess. 5:4
First of all, I can't pluralize God; Ref: Duet 6:4 ; Isaiah 9:6 and many more scriptures. Thomas cried, "My Lord and My God."John 20:28; Jesus told Phillip, "When you've seen me, you've seen the Father" John 14:9: The Holy Ghost does not speak with a different authority, but what the holy spirit says or does is the Spirit and the Word of God. God alone is almighty. He became flesh and dwelt with us. Jesus was not another God, or even another deity. Jesus was simply God manifest in the flesh according to scripture. It was the only way the God of Adam and Eve could reclaim mankind back to himself. God is an eternal spirit, and when Jesus the Son of God, according to the flesh, returned to heaven, then the Holy Ghost was sent to us, the spirit form of God, which the bible says is Christ in you, the "Hope of Glory". Many preachers have tri-unized God and act and speak as though there is a negotiation of 3 powers, but my bible says that all power in Heaven and in Earth belongs to God, who showed himself as the Lamb and the Savior, and is the King of Kings and shall forever be the "One True God of Israel".
Devotion to God is personal, and yet it is universal. But regardless how imperfect we are with all the sins and flaws that we each have, our God loves us and desires our worship of him. No man can glory in himself, but God can bring us into relationship that is full of his Glory. (Jeremiah 29:11 " I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you; plans to give you a hope and a future.") We must be careful to recognize God as he wants to be recognized, As One God, One Savior, who is Eternal and Omniscient.
Be assured that as Earthly "time" ends, then Eternity "timeless" will become clear to us as we transition into the Kingdom of God. All of the check points and dates are set within Gods word, and we simply must be ready!
