Eth Ha Adam – the Two Adams Teaching Debunked!

there is no 8th day creation...

The Chapel teaches that there were two distinct creations of man. The 6th day creation, or the “ethnos” and the 8th day “Adam” of who Christ and the Hebrews were to come…

One thing we really need to grasp is that this interpretation of the bible IS inherently wrong, even racist as it implies the majority of humanity didn’t come Adam and Eve.

Further, the teaching itself comes from racist origins and leads to racist conclusions. Not coincidentally, this notion of a 6th and 8th day creation can be found in the Kabbalah and in the writings of Helena Blavatsky, famed theosophist…

There are other curious similarities between Babylonian Kabalistic mystery religion (a.k.a. Theosophy) and what the Chapel teaches such as the ineffable magical name of God ‘YHVH’.

But back to the “two Adams” teaching, it is a significant contributor to the Christian Identity movement. Christian Identity falls under the umbrella of Christian Dominionism. It is beast religion and satanic to the bone and is under the spiritual control of the Roman whore.

Christian Identity adherent gravitate towards Murray like moths to a flame on account of teachings like this…

We’ll find this particular doctrine expounded in his Genesis series. There’s so many lies in that one set of tapes – it baffles the mind. According to this position God created mankind in general on the 6th day, the indigenous races. Then on the 8th day God created Adam, where fairer skinned folk come in. This is British Israelism 101.

Pandora’s Box opens up from here… how did the races survive the flood? Was the flood global or local? These are themes that Murray addresses over and over. Secretly Murray taught a local flood but to risk alienating people he also taught that Noah took the different races on the ark.

God says take two of each flesh, he reasons that the Kenites and other races were included in this commandment.

But what does the bible teach? Does it teach that the races were created on the 6th day and that on the 8th day God created the fairer skinned people?

How did Paul the Apostle understand this issue? Did he believe in two separate creations of man like Murray teaches?

“And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;” – Acts 17:26

The answer is no. He believed that all men descended from Adam and Eve.

“And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.” – Genesis 3:20

So who are you going to believe? Murray twisted and distorted the whole of scripture to fit his man-made system of religion. If you are one his student’s and you claim to have a love of the truth then it’s time for you to begin to radically question and reject almost everything this man has taught… your soul depends on it.

Flaming Guano Batman, We’ve Solved the Batcreek Stone…

Bat Creek Mound Tablet

“Peer reviewed work of Mary Kwas and Robert Mainfort has demolished any claims of the stone’s authenticity. Mainfort and Kwas themselves state ‘The Bat Creek stone is a fraud.’ ” – Kenneth Feder, hoax expert

Ah, the Batcreek Stone. Unequivocally the sheerest of archeological frauds that Murray is found supporting…

Though I never took much interest in the archeological meanderings of Murray he was trying to establish something very important to his teaching. He wanted solidify the notion that the Hebrews came to the Americas and left evidence behind…

I mean, if they made it to America, how much more easily did they make it to Britain as well?

But is that so? And what about this Batcreek Stone which was claimed to contain Paleo-Hebrew writing thus proving the migrations of the ancient Hebrews?

 The British Israelist’s want to convey the image that ancient Israelites swarmed to every corner of the globe and that the chiefest of these destinations was to be found in the new promised land itself, Britannia…

One key facet of Anglo-Israelism is the premise that the descendants of Judah’s son, Zerah, split off from Israel and migrated rapidly to the England arriving around 1,000 B.C. – Pharez as you recall was the firstborn of Judah but Zerah stuck his hand out first recieving the scarlet thread thus laying claim to blessings of kingship.

Folks, British Israelism and the Batcreek Stone are frauds. Murray presumes to demonstrate his expertness in the ancient Hebrew language by interpreting a con which he takes to be true… the following video exposes the fable of the Batcreek Stone and Murray’s unique penchant for distorting the Hebrew to prove his pet doctrines.

“Foundation” of Sand: Bullinger’s Katabole, Overthrow or Rebellion

bullinger

“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” – Genesis 1:1-2

To understand the Shepherd’s Chapel you’ll need to understand the influence of 19th Century theologian and hyperdispensationalist E.W. Bullinger. He was the one that originated some of Murray’s more pivotal false doctrines.

Case in point, the Gap Theory and the KATABOLE… which I consider to be foundational Chapel teachings.

Frequently you’ll hear the Chapel make reference to the “three earth ages” – the one that was, is and is to come. This model is simply not biblical.

In the New Testament Jesus Christ is VERY clear, there are only two ages: the one that is and the one that is to come…

This World (Gen 1:1)     Timeline of Events
World to Come (Rev 21, 22)


twoagemodel

We can see that this is completely different from Bullinger’s model of three earth ages. This is taken from 2nd Peter…

“For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:” – 2nd Peter 3:5-6

Bullinger and Murray teach that the whole world was destroy by water in the gap between Genesis 1:1-2, prior to the six days of creation. Folks, it is very plain what Peter is talking about here…

It’s the antedeluvian world that perished by Noah’s global flood! Now you can understand why the gappers grasp to make the Noah’s flood a local event because evidence does in fact corraborate such a global flood. Do you see how catastrophic this error is now?

COMPANION BIBLE. APPENDIX 146. “THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD.”

To arrive at the true meaning of this expression, we must note there are two words translated “foundation” in the New Testament:

(1) themelios, and

(2) katabole.

The Noun, themelios, occurs in Luke 6:48, 49; 14:29. Acts 16:26. Rom. 15:20. 1Cor. 3:10, 11, 12. Eph. 2:20. 1Tim. 6:19. 2Tim. 2:19. Heb. 6:1; 11:10. Rev. 21:14, 19. It is never used of the world (kosmos) or the earth (ge). The corresponding Verb (themeliou) occurs in Matt. 7:25. Luke 6:48. Eph. 3:17. Col. 1:23. Heb. 1:10 and 1Pet. 5:10. The verb is only once used of the earth (ge). Heb. 1:10. A comparison of all these passages will show that these are proper and regular terms for the English words “to found”, and “foundation”.

The Noun, katabole, occurs in Matt. 13:35; 25:34. Luke 11:50. John 17:24. Eph. 1:4. Heb. 4:3; 9:26; 11:11. 1Pet. 1:20. Rev. 13:8; 17:8; and the corresponding Verb (kataballo) occurs in 2Cor. 4:9. Heb. 6:1; and Rev. 12:10. A comparison of all these passages (especially 2Cor. 4:9, and Rev. 12:10) will show that kataballo and katabole are not the proper terms for founding and foundation, but the correct meaning is casting down, or overthrow.

Consistency, therefore, calls for the same translation in Heb. 6:1, where, instead of “not laying again”, the rendering should be “not casting down”. That is to say, the foundation already laid, of repentance, &c., was not to be cast down or overthrown, but was to be left — and progress made unto the perfection. Accordingly, the Noun katabole, derived from, and cognate with the Verb, ought to be translated “disruption”, or “ruin”.

The remarkable thing is that in all occurrences (except Heb. 11:11) the word is connected with “the world” (Gr. kosmos. Ap. 129. 1), and therefore the expression should be rendered “the disruption (or ruin) of the world”, clearly referring to the condition indicated in Gen. 1:2, and described in 2Pet. 3:5, 6.

For the earth was not created tohu (Isa. 45:18), but became so, as stated in the Hebrew of Gen 1:2 and confirmed by 2 Pet. 3:6, where “the world that then was by the word of God” (Gen. 1:1), perished, and “the heavens and the earth which are now, by the same word “were created (Gen. 2:4), and are “kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment” (2Pet. 3:7) which shall usher in the “new heavens and the new earth” of 2Pet. 3:13.

“The disruption of the world” is an event forming a great dividing line in the dispensations of the ages. In Gen. 1:1 we have the founding of the world (Heb. 1:10 = themeliou), but in Gen. 1:2 we have its overthrow.

This is confirmed by a further remarkable fact, that the phrase, which occurs ten times, is associated with the Preposition apo = from (Ap. 104. iv) seven times, and with pros = before (Ap. 104. xiv) three times. The former refers to the kingdom and is connected with the “counsels” of God; the latter refers to the Mystery (or Secret. See Ap. 192) and is connected with the “purpose” of God (See John 17:24. Eph. 1:4. 1Pet. 1:20).

Ample New Testament testimony is thus given to the profoundly significant fact recorded in Gen. 1:2, that “the earth became tohu and bohu (i.e. waste and desolate); and darkness was on the face of the deep”, before the creation of “the heavens and the earth which are now” (2Pet. 3:7).

Do these arguments look familiar? They should. This is the very foundation that Murray built his system of theology upon and guess what? It is of sand…

The reason why we know the KJV translators were correct in properly translating the greek word “katabole” as foundation because the old testament is replete with references to the foundation of the earth…

“Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands.” – Psalm 102:25

…and,

“Mine hand also hath laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand hath spanned the heavens: when I call unto them, they stand up together.” – Isaiah 48:13

The reference is obvious, it points to the events spoken of in Genesis 1:1-2. It logically follows that 2nd Peter was pointing to the same founding in Genesis 1:1-2. Therefore the KJV translators are CORRECT! Foundation is the proper interpretation…

Are you a Shepherd’s Chapel follower? Do you want to really learn what the bible means? Set up shop over this issue and dig – a landslide of error will come cascading off your mind by the grace of Christ…

Unfunny Bone – Since When is a Rib not a Rib?

AdamsRib_541x600

“And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.” – Genesis 2:21-23

According to the Chapel when the bible says that God formed Eve from Adam’s rib that’s not really what it’s talking about – the rib here is really Adam’s DNA.

Here the Chapel somehow selectively cherry picks the meaning, “curve” from H6763, as in DNA helix curve… how they do that I don’t know – but this is an important pattern of biblical interpretation to notice… the gerrymandering of the Strongs to get the meaning they need.

In typical gnostic fashion – the bible doesn’t really mean what it says, the initiates of the deeper mysteries of the bible are the gatekeepers to the real understanding of the text. But don’t worry if you can’t see it, if you’re not one of the ELECT God has blinded your eyes!

Murray likes to introduce scientific sounding jargon to appeal those unbelievers who can’t accept the bible at face value. This is standard tactic of his.

You will see him do this with the gap theory and age of the earth as well, and the fiasco in Genesis 6. They are appealing to carnal man with arguments they can understand…

They reason that the Hebrew word for rib, tsela, is “curve” and is referring to the DNA… but when I went to check it in the Strong’s I didn’t find anything like that. They abuse the Strong’s picking and choosing the part of the entry that best suits their agenda regardless of how context determines we should interpret it.

How does context determine we should interpret the word, “rib”? As a rib. No more, no less.

And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones… A rib is a bone – Adam acknowledged what it was that God took from him, case closed.

Oh, I forget, the self proclaimed bible authorities have to come and correctly interpret these passages for us.

Did God Save Noah Due to His Genetic “Perfection”?

noahs-ark-zoom

“These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.” – Genesis 6:9

The Identity crowd seem to be fixated on racial purity. One of the Chapel’s stock teachings comes from Genesis 6:9 concerning Noah’s perfection.

This passage is take to be about Noah’s genetics but nothing could be further from the truth…

According to Bullinger, Noah found grace in the sight of God NOT because he was morally upright, but because his DNA was uncontaminated by the sperm of fallen angels. I’m going to share the Bullinger appendix for this one.

The Genesis 6 teaching concerning hybrids and the fallen angels is a huge deception that is spreading through the land. Does the bible really teach that fallen angels had sex with human women? And that this was the cause of the flood, to kill off these hybrid beings?

Bullinger himself taught this error to Murray, notice the last part…

=======================================================

Appendix 26 from Bullinger Companion Bible entitled Noah “Perfect”

The Hebrew word tamim means without blemish, and is the technical word for bodily and physical perfection, and not moral. Hence it is used of animals of sacrificial purity. It is rendered without blemish in Exodus 12:5; 29:1. Leviticus 1:3,10; 3:1,6; 4:3,23,28,32; 5:15,18; 6:6; 9:2,3; 14:10; 22:19; 23:12,18. Numbers 6:14; 28:19,31; 29:2,8,13,20,23,29,32,36. Ezekiel 43:22,23,25; 45:18,23; 46:4,6,13.

Without spot. Numbers 19:2; 28:3,9,11; 29:17,26.

Unified. Psalms 119:1.

This shows that Genesis 6:9 does not speak of Noah’s moral perfection, but tells us that he and his family alone had preserved their pedigree and kept it pure, in spite of the prevailing corruption brought about by the fallen angels.

Failed Prophecies from 1981 & Other Psychotic Minutia

face2

“When a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing does not come about or come true, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him.” – Deuteronomy 18:22

The following clip pretty much sums this debacle up and dispels all lingering doubts that the venerable Pastor was somehow infallible or even enlightened about the meaning of prophecy… but what follows concerns me even more…

 

I’ve known about many of Murray’s earlier false prophecies from the beginning but they were so nutty and absurd I decided to forbear. I mean, why make fun of someone’s madness, right? However, recently, a commenter had this to say…

Coincidentally, if he isn’t testing my gullibility then he is walking proof that this cult makes people crazier than a bag of raccoons…

I am working on some research right now to explain his prophecy about the end of the age coming in 1981.

I believe the work going on at the CERN supercollider will open a portal, a fracture in space-time, and that will allow the Antichrist to go back and appear in 1981 (with ALL the foreknowledge of the ‘future’ — see, a *false* “prophet” — he will be cheating because he knows the timeline ahead of time)

He will be appearing in 1981 exactly as God’s end time prophet, Dr. Murray, said he would!

It came to me while I was thinking about it intently, and it all makes sense now. I knew he was not wrong, couldn’t be wrong in fact because that would have made him a false prophet. But with this revelation about CERN and time travel, I think I understand how it all fits together.

I was SO happy when this was revealed to me. And I owe Dr. Murray an apology for my doubts.

I think the elect (us) will know the authentic history, but the changes the Antichrist makes in 1981 timeline will seem normal to the rest of the world. It will be their normal history. We will be protected form the delusion of the new timeline, and so we will know and see what is really happening, the great deception.

I was getting depressed about the seemingly failed prophecy before, and right as I felt hopeless it all came to me at once.

WE have to be looking out for these changes in the timeline, but knowing now that Dr. Murray did not falsely prophesy after all, we can know that the entire plan is coming together as he foresaw it would in 1981.

I want to set up an ELECT TIMLELINE website so that we can all add our memories of events to it, so that we are not fooled by the changed events. That will be my next challenge.”

So you judge for yourself, is this man the purest form of Chapel Wackadoodle in existence or is he just your base garden variety internet troll? 

Who Were the Nephilim?

homer-cyclops-sm-704428

“Now it came about, when men began to multiply on the face of the land, and daughters were born to them, that the sons of God (bene Elohim) saw that the daughters of men were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose.” – Genesis 6:1-2

Who are the Nephilim?

Now before we assume it was a race of hybrid beings let’s look at the text…

“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.” – Genesis 6:4

The word for “giants” is Hebrew Strongs entry 5303: nĕphiyl

Here’s the entry from Gesenius lexicon…

feller

Read that carefully. In my Strong’s I get giant as a bully or tyrant. People incorrectly assume because “giant” denotes a being large in stature later in the OT that it must refer to the same here. They could be large but text doesn’t specify it.

They are called “giants” here for quite another reason, and it is specifically for their wickedness and rebellion, the reason in which the flood came.

They incorrectly assume that because Og and Goliath were physically large that they must be hybrids as well. It’s really bad exegesis.

There is nothing here to indicate that these are hybrid beings. Further, there is nothing here to suggest that these “giants” are the result of the sexual union between the “sons of God” and the daughters of men… they were merely present in the land when these unions were occurring.

These giants were rebels, apostates and violent men (a feller) who were being led by the “bene Elohim” and their children…

One can only make that leap that these are hybrids if they take “bene Elohim” to refer to celestial beings. Commonly they do this because of Job 1:6…

“Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.”

It is clear that these are celestial beings but the bible also calls Adam the “son of God”…

“Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.” – Luke 3:38

The identity of “bene Elohim” in Job does not determine the interpretation of “sons of God” in Genesis 6.

If you make that leap then you will come to very strange and unbiblical conclusions about the bible and reality, much the same way that the writer of the book of Enoch did.

Angels are NOT sexual beings… 

While there are a handful of possible interpretations as to these “bene Elohim” one possible interpretation has caught my attention lately, that these sons of God were evil demon possessed “divine” rulers in the antediluvian world that led the world in rebellion, much like Nimrod did after the flood.

Imagine the way in which the pagan Roman emperors believed that they were the incarnation of the gods… it’s not hard to believe that men bought into the same lies before the flood.

The children of these “bene Elohim” are called, Gibbor…

gibbor

There’s nothing new under the sun – that which took place after the flood took place before the flood… this is the God-King dynamic being referred to in Genesis 6 and it’s attendant wickedness; we see the same thing happening down to our present day.

The bible chronicles this in much detail…
