Biblical Adam Exiled (Forced out by a powerful King?)

The one thing that I have come to understand with clarity is this, the Bible is full of patterns repeating one story. The story of GOD building a house, entering into a covenant with creation and, producing life. The story is revealed to all of mankind via the story of Israel. Hence, my growing conviction that Moses, in Genesis One, begins the account of the nation of Israel as opposed to the creation of the first man and the first woman.
I am not a scholar however, thank GOD for the scholars who are beginning to really address the totality of Moses' writing methods within the cultural reality of his time.

Consider yielding the time it takes to watch all of the following:


Was the serpent a powerful King who removed Adam (who was a priest) and his house from the land? If this is true Adam's house would have been scattered among the nations. Nations you say?



Enter the woman, Dr. Dinah Dye! In her new book soon to be released January 2018 Dr. Dye gathers together historical nations, historical events and historical people offering an intelligent if not, scholarship that agrees with much of what the men are discussing in our time!

Pre-ordering her 2nd book in the series, "The Temple Revealed In the Garden~Priests and Kings" is now available through her website, (Click Here). Women have this innate ability to make everything more human. Dr. Dinah Dye does just this adding to the discussion wisdom and common sense!

I think GOD is in the restoration 
business and he is starting in Genesis

Trump and the Kingdom of GOD

Thinking about Israel and the Jewish State:
I have said for sometime now, the rebirth of the nation of Israel is on par with the resurrection of Yeshua, the crossing of the Reid Sea, the Exodus from Egypt, the Flood of Noah, and the Temple in Eden. From ashes, literally, the nation of Israel was raised up again.

The exact opposite of the desired goal of Adolph Hitler occurred. The Jewish people, full of Rabbinic Tradition, Pharisaical Concepts, Messianic Insistence and Talmudic Writings, least I forget Torah Portions and Haftorah portions (recycled often times under the threat of death) all returned home.
With socialism and injustice forced into a handful of remarkable people the exodus from Europe after WWII commenced. The prayers and hard work raised up by Theodor Herzl answered and rewarded.

I have also said, the mistake that the British Empire made by taking 80% of the land promised via the Balfour Declaration of 1917 away from the re-establishment of Israel cost the empire her wealth and preeminence. An adversary was raised up against the Kingdom and all of Europe as a result.

The establishment of the Jewish State in Palestine, the name given to the Land of Israel by the homosexual Emperor Hadrian in 136 A.D. occurred in 1948. The anti semitic rituals of death, centuries old racism and bigotry against the Jewish people (perpetrated by the church of Rome, the government of Spain, and the royalty of the crowns of England) could not stop the rebirth of Israel. The nation is reborn into the now heart of the Islamic horde. Yet another religion of death to the Jewish people surrounding their homeland.

Modern day Israel, like all kingdoms on this earth hosts immorality, corruption, bigotry, a host of maladies. However, what no other kingdom on this earth has is a GOD who has made his dwelling place the City of David.

The kings of the earth have for centuries attempted to claim this land and or destroy this place, yet the nation persists, The people are returning, her history is being revisited much to the chagrin of those who attempt to rewrite, or erase this place!

The King of Kings, the Lion of the Tribe of Yehuda is happening in this place. This is the actual story that is unfolding. The story has never been about the people or the place alone but, Israel's purpose. Israel is in my opinion, a blueprint that houses the building of a Kingdom, the revelation of why any or all of this exists in the first place is happening.. At the insistence of the GOD of Abraham Israel is for the world a light in the darkness.

The rulers of the nations have raised up religious systems, placing gods that do not exist into temples that are imitations based on the ignorances of men..........

This is why most cannot see what is actually happening in the land of Israel. Out of the mind of Almighty God the nations have borders, temples, and kings...
All are based on the Nation, The Borders, and the Creator of Israel.......

What Donald John Trump has done is re-align America with the land of GOD

How the Serpent Became Satan [by Shawna Dolansky]

Dinah Dye sent this article to me and I just had to post it 
after what I shared concerning Genesis 3:1

 
How the Serpent Became Satan

Adam, Eve and the serpent in the Garden of Eden

Shawna Dolansky • 10/13/2017
(source: https://www.biblicalarchaeology.org/daily/biblical-topics/bible-interpretation/the-creation-of-woman-in-the-bible/

Introduced as “the most clever of all of the beasts of the field that YHWH God had made,” the serpent in the Garden of Eden is portrayed as just that: a serpent. Satan does not make an appearance in Genesis 2–3, for the simple reason that when the story was written, the concept of the devil had not yet been invented. Explaining the serpent in the Garden of Eden as Satan would have been as foreign a concept to the ancient authors of the text as referring to Ezekiel’s vision as a UFO (but Google “Ezekiel’s vision” now, and you’ll see that plenty of people today have made that connection!). In fact, while the word satan appears elsewhere in the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, it is never a proper name; since there is no devil in ancient Israel’s worldview, there can’t yet have been a proper name for such a creature.

The noun satan, Hebrew for “adversary” or “accuser,” occurs nine times in the Hebrew Bible: five times to describe a human military, political or legal opponent, and four times with reference to a divine being. In Numbers 22, the prophet Balaam, hired to curse the Israelites, is stopped by a messenger from Israel’s God YHWH, described as “the satan” acting on God’s behalf. In Job, “the satan” is a member of God’s heavenly council—one of the divine beings, whose role in Job’s story is to be an “accuser,” a status acquired by people in ancient Israel and Mesopotamia for the purposes of particular legal proceedings. In Job’s case, what’s on trial is God’s assertion that Job is completely “blameless and upright” vs. the satan’s contention that Job only behaves himself because God has rewarded him. God argues that Job is rewarded because he is good, and not good because he is rewarded. The satan challenges God to a wager that if everything is taken away from poor Job, he won’t be so good anymore, and God accepts. Though a perception of “the satan” as Satan would make this portrait of God easier to swallow, the story demonstrates otherwise; like Yahweh’s messenger in Numbers 22, this satan acts on YHWH’s instructions (and as a result of God’s braggadocio) and is not an independent force of evil.

In Zechariah 3, the prophet describes a vision of the high priest Joshua standing in a similar divine council, also functioning as a tribunal. Before him stand YHWH’s messenger and the satan, who is there to accuse him. This vision is Zechariah’s way of pronouncing YHWH’s approval of Joshua’s appointment to the high priesthood in the face of adversarial community members, represented by the satan. The messenger rebukes the satan and orders that Joshua’s dirty clothing be replaced, as he promises Joshua continuing access to the divine council. Once again, the satan is not Satan who we read about in the New Testament.

The word satan appears only once without “the” in front of it in the entire Hebrew Bible: in 1 Chronicles 21:1. Is it possible that we finally have Satan here portrayed? 1 Chronicles 21 parallels the story of David’s census in 2 Samuel 24, in which God orders David to “go number Israel and Judah” and then punishes king and kingdom for doing so. The Chronicler changes this story, as he does others, to portray the relationship between God and David as uncompromised; he writes that “a satan stood up against Israel and he provoked David to number Israel” (1 Chronicles 21:6–7; 27:24). Although it is possible to read “Satan” here instead of “a satan” (Hebrew uses neither uppercase letters, nor indefinite articles, e.g., “a”), nothing else in this story or in any texts for another 300 years indicates that the idea of an evil prince of darkness exists in the consciousness of the Israelites.

So if there’s no Satan in the Hebrew Bible, where does the devil come into the details of Eden?

The worldview of Jewish readers of Genesis 2–3 profoundly changed in the centuries since the story was first written. After the canon of the Hebrew Bible closed,1 beliefs in angels, demons and a final apocalyptic battle arose in a divided and turbulent Jewish community. In light of this impending end, many turned to a renewed understanding of the beginning, and the Garden of Eden was re-read—and re-written—to reflect the changing ideas of a changed world. Two separate things happened and then merged: Satan became the proper name of the devil, a supernatural power now seen to oppose God as the leader of demons and the forces of evil; and the serpent in the Garden of Eden came to be identified with him. While we begin to see the first idea occurring in texts two centuries before the New Testament, the second won’t happen until later; Eden’s serpent is not identified with Satan anywhere in the Hebrew Bible or New Testament.

The concept of the devil begins to appear in second and first centuries B.C.E. Jewish texts. In 1 Enoch, the “angel” who “led Eve astray” and “showed the weapons of death to the children of men” was called Gadreel (not Satan). Around the same time, the Wisdom of Solomon taught that “through the devil’s envy death entered the world, and those who are on his side suffer it.” Though this may very well be the earliest reference to Eden’s serpent as the devil, in neither text, nor in any document we have until after the New Testament, is satan clearly understood as the serpent in Eden. At Qumran, though, Satan is the leader of the forces of darkness; his power is said to threaten humanity, and it was believed that salvation would bring the absence of Satan and evil.

By the first century C.E., Satan is adopted into the nascent Christian movement, as ruler over a kingdom of darkness, an opponent and deceiver of Jesus (Mark 1:13), prince of the devils and opposing force to God (Luke 11:15–19; Matthew 12:24–27; Mark 3:22–23:26); Jesus’ ministry puts a temporary end to Satan’s reign (Luke 10:18) and the conversion of the gentiles leads them from Satan to God (Acts 26:18). Most famously, Satan endangers the Christian communities but will fall in Christ’s final act of salvation, described in detail in the book of Revelation.

But curiously, although the author of Revelation describes Satan as “the ancient serpent” (Revelation 12:9; 20:2), there is no clear link anywhere in the Bible between Satan and Eden’s talking snake. The ancient Near Eastern combat myth motif, exemplified in the battle between Marduk and Tiamat in Enuma Elish and Baal and Yam/Mot in ancient Canaan, typically depicted the bad guy as a serpent. The characterization of Leviathan in Isaiah 27 reflects such myths nicely:
On that day YHWH will punish
With his hard and big and strong sword
Leviathan the fleeing serpent,
Leviathan the twisted serpent,
And he will kill the dragon that is in the sea.

So the reference in Revelation 12:9 to Satan as “the ancient serpent” probably reflects mythical monsters like Leviathan rather than the clever, legged, talking creature in Eden.

In the New Testament, Satan and his demons have the power to enter and possess people; this is what is said to have happened to Judas (Luke 22:3; John 13:27; cf. Mark 5:12–13; Luke 8:30–32). But when Paul re-tells the story of Adam and Eve, he places the blame on the humans (Romans 5:18; cf. 1 Corinthians 15:21–22) and not on fallen angels, or on the serpent as Satan. Still, the conflation begged to be made, and it will seem natural for later Christian authors—Justin Martyr, Tertullian, Cyprian, Irenaeus and Augustine, for example—to assume Satan’s association with Eden’s talking snake. Most famously, in the 17th century, John Milton elaborates Satan’s role in the Garden poetically, in great detail in Paradise Lost. But this connection is not forged anywhere in the Bible.

Letter to OUR President by Victor Sharpe




Dear President Trump,

It has been a wondrous benefit to the United States of America to have you as President and Commander in Chief.

Your principled stand against the Leftwing onslaught, which is in a full court mode to fulfill the destructive and anti-American words of your predecessor, Barack Hussein Obama, to "transform America," is applauded and deeply appreciated by millions of Americans.


You are the bulwark against the baleful attempt to eviscerate the magnificent and divinely inspired U.S. Constitution and our very way of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. With millions of other Americans, I salute you and stand with you in your holy task of saving - perhaps for the last opportunity we have - our beloved land as we know it.

I believe you will therefore elevate and enhance America's moral core by taking a monumental step in righting a wicked policy that has besmirched natural justice. That moral core is the epic step of America, and its President - you President Trump - in finally honoring the beleaguered State of Israel by recognizing that its capital city is united Jerusalem. By doing so, you will have taken the historic step of righting a terrible wrong in finally announcing to the world that the eternal 3,000 year old Jewish capital of Israel is Jerusalem - the only capital of a sovereign and reconstituted nation whose capital city has been denied recognition.

I urge you with all the passion I possess to please, please take the golden opportunity of your upcoming speech regarding the status of Jerusalem to announce not just that America recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish state, but also that the US Embassy will now be located in Israel’s capital as a matter of legal, historic and moral right.

At the same time, please, Mr. President, do not fall for yet another discredited so-called Two-State-Solution, whereby tiny Israel is forced to abandon its very biblical and ancestral Jewish heartland - known for over 3,000 years as Judea and Samaria - but whose illegitimate preferred name by a hostile world is the West Bank.

As you know, sir, this fraudulent name was given to the biblical Jewish territory by the Jordanians who had invaded and illegally occupied Judea and Samaria, including the eastern half of Jerusalem, in 1948 until it was liberated by the IDF during the Arab imposed 1967 Six Day War. In acceding to Arab demands, by tearing out Israel's biblical heartland in order to create yet another Arab terror state, will bring calamitous war and prove a tragic legacy,

In conclusion, dear Mr. President, I and so many others pray and hope that you will put an end to the State Department's endemic hostility towards Israel and its shameful record of coercion towards the brave Jewish residents of Judea, Samaria, East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights who suffer relentlessly from Palestinian Authority and Hamas terror and genocidal violence.

Thank you, President Trump.

May I wish you these words in Hebrew.

Yasher Koach, (All honors to you).

Dear friends and family,
All too quickly, 2017 is drawing to a close – as quickly as it was birthed.

For me, this past year has been a blur of traveling many thousands of miles, jumping back and forth between continents, cultures, languages, paradigms, and even more so, the privilege of being able to cooperate with our Lord in caring for His children that He has placed into our hands – that of our USA organization and its daughter organization, Restaurando Esperanza Internacional, located in Arequipa – Perú.

I want to report that our children, teens, and staff down in Peru are doing very wonderfully. With the help of God, we have been able to craft a certain chemistry in our home that has won us a very good reputation with the court systems and the Custody Investigation Unit in our city and Department (Province). And, a good number of you have helped make this a reality for us. This includes, most importantly, for our girls!

In knowing that many of you do not have a lot of time to read this email, due to your busy schedule, I do have a request of you: Would you be willing to consider us as part of your charitable giving strategy for the rest of this year and into the future?

By simply clicking on the following link, you may read more about what my heart wishes to express to you. But, as always, so much more to say beyond what I have written. Here is the link: http://restoringchildren.org/sponsor/

Please know that we, both here at Restoring Children International, in addition to those of us involved with the care of our children in Peru, do not take for granted your help. Communication with all of you has always proven to be a challenge for me in the context of my wearing so many different hats in our organizations and traveling. But, know that I appreciate you and do attribute the success of our program to both our Lord and Creator, to those of you who have come along side to aid and encourage us, and to our excellent board of directors here in the USA, and our loving and dedicated staff down in Peru.

Please do tell your friends – even those on social media – about us!

Thank you for your encouragement and support
Warmest regards to you and yours always,

Rick
