     The Bible tells of the creation of MEN, IN THE PLURAL, in

Genesis 1:26‑28, saying,

     "Male and female created He THEM" (1:27), and God told these

people, "Be fruitful and

     multiply, and Replenish the earth" (1:28). "Plenish" is an

obsolete English word, meaning "to

     fill"; and you cannot REplenish what was never plenished, or

filled, before. In the next

     chapter, Genesis 2. we find THE ADAM (in the singular) formed.

The Hebrew word,

     "aw‑dawm" (rendered "Adam" in English) is from a root word

meaning, "To show blood in the

     face" or "of a ruddy complexion" ... a word obviously not

applicable to the dark races, which

     we know from scientific evidence to be much older than the

White Race.

     Bible scholars know the latter part of the passage in Genesis

3:20... "and Adam called his

     wife's name "Eve"; because she was the mother of all living" . . .

‑is a later interpolation, which

     was not in the earlier manuscripts (See Moffatt's Translation). It

follows that Eve (which

     means 'life‑giver'), being Adamic, could not have mothered the

earlier Yellow or Black races;

     an idea which is only a popular misconception engendered by

fallacious Christian Education.


                    Edenic Covenant

          In Gen. 3:3, God has told Eve she is not to eat (partake) of the

fruit (offspring) of

          the tree that was in the midst of the Garden. We know that the

tree in the midst of

          the Garden was a racial tree because it is described in Gen.

2:17 as a tree of the

          knowledge of good and evil. No fruit tree has a knowledge of

good or evil, so it

          could not have been an "apple tree". Also, Eve was

admonished not to touch* the

          fruit of the tree on pain of death. Certainly, touching an apple

would not have called

          for such stern punishment. Again in Gen. 3:61 Eve saw that

the fruit was pleasant

          to the eyes (handsome) and capable of making one wise. As it

turned out, partaking

          of the fruit of the racial tree did make Eve wise, because she

knew (immediately

          after she and Adam had sinned) that she was naked. A fact

that she did not seem to

          notice before the misdeed.

          "to lay hands upon, to lie with" ‑ See Strong's Concordance.

          When God asked Eve what she had done (Gen. 3:13) she said

the serpent beguiled

          her. In the first place, the Hebrew word "Nachash", translated

"serpent," actually

          means "spellbinding enchanter or magician". Now we know

how the serpent could

          talk to Eve. It was not a snake or any reptile with which we

are familiar, but Satan,

          in one of his many appearances. Understanding the foregoing

makes it easy to

          understand that the sin committed in the Garden of Eden was

of a sexual nature

          because when Eve said she was beguiled she actually was

saying she had been

          seduced. The Hebrew word "Nashall translated to "beguiled"

actually means "to

          lead astray, to seduce".

          It is quite evident that before Adam and Eve sinned theirs

was not a physical or

          sexual relationship. The Forgotten Books of Eden tell us that

God, the Father, had

          desired to bring forth children of Light from both of them

(perhaps in the same

          manner as Eve was brought from Adam). But when they

committed sexual sin;

          they were reduced to a purely physical plane of reproduction

(Gen. 3:16); they lost

          their aura or "glory" and were driven out of Eden. They were

no longer children of

          light, free from toil and pain and death. Yet God' s mercy did

not depart from

          them. The fallen man and woman were restored by God's

grace to a condition of

          favour. They had been given mortality and they came

therefore, under the

          dispensation of that state of being under which God made

with them a second


               ADAMIC COVENANT

          This Second Covenant teaches us the conditions of the life of

mortal (fallen)

          humanity, the conditions, that is, that have governed the lives

of all men since the

          Fall, under which, therefore we live. These conditions remain

until the coming of

          the Christ when he restores all things created, to their original

purity. This second

          Covenant was partly founded in a curse, for God's judgment

came upon Adam for

          his sin, and the judgment bore the burden of labour, "In the

sweat of thy face shalt

          thou eat bread"; the difficulty of labour, "thorns also and

thistles shall it bring forth

          to thee"; the sorrow of life, "in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all

the days of thy life";

          physical death, "dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou

return". All these things, the

          fruit of the curse, are included in the judgment of God upon

the Fall, yet how

          important it is to notice that even in such a Covenant, in such

a statement of God's

          will and purpose there is the clear promise of blessing and

restoration. For you

          have, in the story of this second Covenant, the first promise

of a Saviour, the first

          beginnings of God's work of redemption through the Godly

seed. It is this

          Covenant, made with Adam when cast out of Eden, which

provides the first link in

          a chain that runs unbroken throughout the whole Bible; that

chain of men, chosen

          and called out by God, who should labour for Him in

righteousness, and who

          should be fellow workers with God to restore His dominion

over the earth.
