In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen. – Part 3

Apart from the ‘sons of men’ (sons of the devil), the ‘sons of God’ stayed faithful to God and there are 12 generations form Adam to Noah and the Flood. The number 12 signifies order, or government. But a number of the ‘sons of God’ were bewitched by the beauty of the ‘sons of men’ and left the worship of God to join in the enticements of the sons of the devil: “And God seeing that the wickedness of men was great on the earth, and that all the thought of their heart was bent upon evil at all times, it repented Him that He had made man on the earth. And being touched inwardly with sorrow of heart He said: I will destroy man, whom I have created, from the face of the earth, from man even to beasts, from the creeping thing even to the fowls of the air, for it repents Me that I have made them” (Gn 6:5). This brought on the Flood in which only the ‘sons of God’ survived and all the ‘sons of the devil’ were destroyed.

When Noah and his sons and wives came out of the Ark, the earth was pristine and clean with no sin. However sin entered into the second son whose name was Ham. Noah cursed his seed, and it from this offspring came Nimrod and those who built the tower of Babel and later Babylon. Consistently in the descendants of Noah, Abraham, Moses, Saul, David, Solomon and the following leaders rebellion against God Almighty was exercised.

The sons of Solomon divided Israel into 2 kingdoms, the north kingdom with 10 tribes was called ‘Israel’ and the south with 2 tribes was called ‘Judah.’ In the history of the divided kingdoms there were 19 kings in the northern kingdom of Israel, and scripture records that not one of them did that was pleasing to the Lord. In the southern kingdom there were 20 kings and only 8 of them did that which was pleasing to the Lord. The rebellion against God the Almighty is recorded in the Book of Machabees, and for some unearthly reason, the success of Judas Machabeus against the enemies of Israel is astonishing when one considers that with a small army he put to flight the nations fighting against him, and then he goes and makes a concord with the Roman Empire for protection! That lack of trust in the Saviour of Israel ended in the Roman conquest and enslavement of Israel, the destruction of the Temple, and the Jewish inability to perform the rites and sacrifices which God commanded. It is written: “But if you and your children, revolting, shall turn away from following Me, and will not keep My commandments, and My ceremonies, which I have set before you, but will go and worship strange gods, and adore them, I will take away Israel from the face of the land which I have given them, and the Temple which I have sanctified to My Name, I will cast out of My sight, and Israel shall be a proverb, and a byword among all people” (3K9:6,7). The Roman Empire was the false gods of the Jews.

We bring this salutation yet command, to the weary world, so oppressed by the forces of evil, to bring the message of hope, salvation and victory. The ‘sons of God’ (Gn 6:2) are about to inflict the final defeat now and for ever the wickedness of the sons of the devil, also known as the ‘sons of men’ (Gn 6:5).

“For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him that made it subject, in hope, because the creature also itself shall be delivered from the servitude of corruption into the liberty of the glory of the children of God. For we know that every creature groans and travails in pain, even till now. And not only it, but ourselves also, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption of the sons of God, the redemption of our body.” (Rm 8:20 23).

How did this being ‘made subject to vanity’ come about?
The first of the seven deadly sins ‘pride’ was invented by the Archangel Lucifer and he followed this with disobedience to the Creator, Almighty God. This fallen angel is now known as Satan and devil. He used his invented sin of pride on Eve and Adam, and in turn got them to disobey God. After God confronted the first parents and the ‘blame game’ was completed, they were cast out of Paradise. Two sons were born to them, Cain and Able. Pride entered into Cain and he murdered his younger brother Able. The Lord God said to the murderer Cain: “Now therefore cursed shall you be upon the earth, which has opened her mouth and received the blood of your brother at your hand…a fugitive and a vagabond shall you be upon the earth…And Cain went out from the face of the Lord, and dwelt as a fugitive on the earth at the east side of Eden. (Gn 4:11,12,16).

The sin of pride was always present in the sons of the devil as “Cain knew his wife, and she conceived, and brought forth Henoch and he built a city, and in his pride he called the name thereof by the name of his son Henoch” (Gn 4:17), as it is written: “…their sepulchres shall be their houses for ever, their dwelling places to all generations, they have called their lands by their names” (Ps 48:12).

The lineage of Cain is contained in the same chapter, and includes the names of the two wives of Lamech who was the last of the ‘sons’ of Cain.’ This Lamech murdered Cain, and so the ‘sons of men’ began and ended before the Flood with murder. There are 11 names mentioned in the generation of Cain, and 11 is the number for sin. The last woman’s name mentioned of the ‘sons of men’ is ‘Noema’ which means ‘pleasure.’

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
