SEVEN DAYS OF CREATION
BY: ALYCE McPHERSON
This book is a book written in study form. It is a book that will enlighten those who are searching for the plan and purpose of God for man. It will help the young in the Lord to understand why they were born into the realm of earth and what their destiny is in Spirit. It was written over thirty years ago when I was also young in the move of God and was diligently searching for my spiritual identity. God began to pour out revelation to me and totally changed my life. I offer it in love, please read it in the light of how and why it is written.
In school we were taught in order to write properly, we should have a thesis sentence that contained a short summary of what the theme was to express or convey to the reader. God is the greatest author of all and in the first chapter of Genesis, we find His thesis sentence. We read that the heavens and the earth were created in six days and on the seventh day God rested.
When we examine these days with the aid of the Spirit of God, we find they are an outline or pattern of the remaining portion of the Bible. God’s purpose in the seventh day is to rest in the fact His creation is fulfilling His will in the earth, that He may be all and in all.
The following scripture tells us that the natural things that exist by the hand of God are only patterns of the real heavenly things. The things seen by the naked eye are only mirror images of the reality established in the realm of Spirit.
Hebrews 9:23, 24: It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us.
The examples in the Old Testament, reveal what God’s intention is in each of His thousand year days.
I would like to say at this point that in no way am I saying that a day is ONE THOUSAND LITERAL YEARS, but I am saying that in this writing we are going to use this timetable to establish a truth hidden within the creative pattern recorded in Genesis chapter one.
THE FIRST DAY
The first day begins with Adam and ends with Enoch.
Genesis 1:1, 5: 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.
And God said, let there be light and there was light. And God saw the light that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light day and the darkness he called night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
When we break the above scripture down into pattern pieces, we have the following:
A. THE EARTH WAS WITHOUT FORM AND VOID
B. THE SPIRIT OF GOD MOVED, AND SAID LET THERE BE LIGHT.
C. GOD DIVIDED THE LIGHT FROM THE DARKNESS.
In the above scripture let us see by the spirit that the first thousand year day began with Adam and ended approximately a thousand years later with Enoch.
A. The earth was without form and void.
The Hebrew definition for the words form and void are:
Hebrew 8414, Strong’s:
From an unused root meaning to lie waste; a desolation (of surface), desert; figurative a worthless thing; adverbial in vain; confusion, empty place, without form, nothing, (thing of) naught, vain, vanity , waste, wilderness.
Hebrew 922, Strong’s
From an unused root (meaning to be empty); a vacuity, (superficially) an undistinguishable ruin: emptiness, void.
The words without form and void mean confused and empty. When God formed Adam from the dust, He took a part of the earth that was without form and void, confused and empty; and without any spiritual knowledge of God and made a creation called man.
We have been taught by religion that God reached down and formed man out of the ground six thousand years ago and called him Adam. They argue that Adam was the first man created and because his lineage can be traced back six thousand years, they deny the existence of man before Adam.
Science, however, has proven through excavation that there was man roaming the face of the earth thousands of years before the Adamic race appeared. They have produce their evidence and it cannot be denied! Darwin‘s theory of evolution was introduced, claiming mankind evolved from the ape and warfare raged between religious theology and the theory of evolution.
Science and religion, have reached a stalemate, each trying to prove their theory. We as Christians believe the Bible is the infallible Word of God; yet, we cannot possibly deny the evidence produced by archeology. The truth of the matter is both science and religion are right to a certain extent. Science and religion can agree!
In the original manuscript of the book of Genesis, chapter one does not begin with the phrase, in the beginning. The original Hebrew manuscript reads, in a beginning. This is one of the many miss translations found in the King James version of the Bible. There are many beginnings in God. The Bible as we know it is the history of man; from the time God begins to deal with him, to the time God will ADVANCE him into the MEASURE AND STATURE of the FULLNESS OF CHRIST! A SEVEN THOUSAND YEAR period of time!
In the book of Daniel we read concerning a dream the king had, predicting the fall of his kingdom. The dream was given to Nebuchadnezzar who like Adam desired to be as God. It is a picture of the position Adam had before his fall and the consequences of his disobedience.
Daniel 4:10, 19: Thus were the visions of mine head in my bed; I saw, and behold a tree in the midst of the earth, and the height thereof was great. The tree grew, and was strong, and the height thereof reached unto heaven, and the sight thereof to the end of all the earth. The leaves thereof were fair, and the fruit thereof much, and in it was meat for all; the beasts of the field had shadow under it, and the fowls of the heaven dwelt in the boughs thereof, and all flesh was fed of it.
I saw in the visions of my head upon my bed, and behold, a watcher and an holy one came down from heaven; He cried aloud, and said thus, Hew down the tree, and cut off his branches, shake off his leaves, and scatter his fruit; let the beasts get away from under it, and the fowls from his branches. Nevertheless leave the stump of his roots in the earth, even with a band of iron and brass, in the tender grass of the field; and let it be wet with the dew of heaven, and let his portion be with the beasts in the grass of the earth.
Let his heart be changed from man’s and let a beast’s heart be given unto him; and let seven times pass over him.
When God created the world, (the orderly arrangement of things), He created many different forms of life through the evolutionary process. Among these many forms was the pre-Adamic man. This man did not spring from the ape family, but was an individual specie in itself. He resembled man as we know him today, but was without form and void, confused and empty, for he did not have a personal relationship with his creator, God. He was a creature that was beastlike in nature, yet, had the capacity to worship a higher power. This has been proven by scientific exploration. He was the highest part of the dust of the earth!
Proverbs 8:26: While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.
In the above scripture, wisdom is speaking. Notice the phrase, highest part of the dust of the world. Spiritually speaking the highest form of life in existence six thousand years ago was the pre-Adamic man!
The word FORMED in the Hebrew language means to squeeze into shape or form a resolution.
Hebrew 3335, Strong’s
Probably identical with Hebrew 3334 (through the squeezing into shape);
The word from is used when something is molded from an existing substance, whereas the word create is used when something is cut down and then fed as a formative process.
God formed the first man Adam! He chose the higher dust of the world, (pre-Adamic man) and squeezed him into shape through a resolution He had made in His mind when He decided to make or advance man into His own likeness and image and give him dominion.
God breathed the spirit of life into the pre-Adamic man, and gave him the capacity to communicate with Him on a Spiritual plane. The spirit of life began to mold and form this man into the first man Adam, as we know him today.
B. The spirit of God moved, and God said, let there be light:
Light requires an organ adapted for its reception. When the eye is absent or has become impaired from any cause, light is useless. Believers are called sons of light in the scripture. God reveals Himself to man by preparing them as organs of light. Adam became a son of light when God placed in him the potential to receive Spiritual light.
The spirit of life breathed into Adam was a perfect substance. In it was the intellect, will, emotion, conscious and sub-conscious mind of God. Because of this substance within, Adam walked in life upon the earth, and did not see death. When his eyes were opened however, through disobedience, and invisible veil was cast over the spirit within him; and he began to see through a glass darkly. He became an impaired organ and fell from a spiritual consciousness into an earthy awareness of his environmental surroundings and physical makeup.
When his eyes were opened, he fell into condemnation because the thing he saw was his nakedness! Condemnation resulted in death.
Whey was death a result of Adam’s eye being opened? The Hebrew word for EYE is:
Hebrew 5869, Strong’s
Probably a primitive word; an eye (literal or figurative); by analogy a fountain (as the eye of the landscape).
A fountain as eye of a landscape! Adam’s eyes were opened to what he was before God breathed the spirit of life into him! He saw his base nature as earthy and naked! He had been naked all the time in his humanity, but the spirit of life had lifted him into a realm of light so bright he forgot from whence he came.
He also saw before him as a landscape the plan and purpose of God. This purpose is found in:
Ephes. 1:9, 11: Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself. That in the dispensation of the fullness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth, even in him;
Adam saw that he was only a figure of Him that was to come! He saw the Lord Jesus Christ appear in the dispensation of the fullness of times as the last man Adam! He saw Jesus, die as the last of the Adamic race, and resurrect as the firstborn of a new creation man that had conquered death, hell and the grave! This knowledge of the mixture of good and evil brought condemnation and death!
The Hebrew word knowledge as used here has absolutely nothing to do with the intellect, but has the meaning: To make certain by seeing!
When we look upon something with our natural eye, our mind begins to give the object definition or character. We make things certain according to what we see or discern as good or evil.
Adam saw that he was only a figure of Him that was to come. He saw that the earthy Adamic race that he was, would be advanced into perfection and stand as Jesus, the last man Adam!
As a result he tried to save himself by hiding himself among the trees or firmly established orders of that day.
C. God divided the light from the darkness;
We have all been taught that the serpent of Genesis was either literal or the Devil in disguise. This is a fairy tale only children should believe!
In the days of Adam, there were many religious beliefs. Many things were worshipped by the pre-Adamic man. Heavenly bodies such as the sun, moon and stars were worshipped, and many earthy objects that sustained life were considered gods because they were sources of provision.
One of the most significant religious sects was the cult of Sachan. This religious order was located in the city of Der, in ancient Babylon. (1) The cult of Sachan was identified by a burning sun disc, surrounded by the symbol of a serpent! This was the serpent that was more subtle than any other beast of the field!
Adam could not dwell in a place of light with a mixture of light and darkness. He was driven out of the garden and separated from the light of God. He ministered from remembrance of what he had known in light, but, as the centuries passed that light became dim.
Adam saw good and he saw evil and this mixture of knowledge destroyed him.
God’s purpose for the first thousand year day was LET THERE BE LIGHT, AND LET THERE BE A SEPARATION OF LIGHT AND DARKNESS.
God told Adam that in the day he ate of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil he would die. Adam did not die in a twenty – four hour day, but died at the age of nine hundred and thirty years, in God’s thousand year day.
Adam was God’s light until he became a partaker of darkness. Adam failed to become God’s word fulfilled in that first thousand year day, but God’s word is always fulfilled. When one vessel fails, God raises up another.
At the close of the first thousand year day, we see a man called Enoch, losing his identity, and becoming light. Enoch lost all sense of earthy identity and did not associate himself with the pre-Adamic beastlike nature. As a result, he was not, for God took him! He was translated out of death!
Hebrews 11:5: By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him; for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.
THE SECOND DAY
The second day began with Enoch and ended with Noah.
Genesis 1:6, 8: And God said, let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. And God made the firmament and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament and it was so. And God called the firmament heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
God did the following on the second day of creation:
A. GOD CREATED A FIRMAMENT CALLED HEAVEN.
B. GOD COMMANDED THE FIRMAMENT TO BE A DIVISION BETWEEN THE WATERS.
At the close of the first thousand year day, we see a man called Enoch, who so pleased God that he was not. Enoch had the testimony that he pleased God through faith.
Enoch was a descendant of Adam, and saw what Adam saw, but Enoch saw by faith! He did not see himself dead as the last Adam, but saw himself resurrected in Christ.
The second thousand year day begins with Enoch and ends with a man named Noah.
A. God created a firmament called heaven.
According to recorded history, the word heaven is a word coined or invented by the Hebrew people to describe God. (2)
When their deliverer, Moses, heard God speak from the burning bush, he was a man who had been taken away from his native ancestry and raised as an Egyptian. He had only heard about the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. When he encountered God at the burning bush and heard him speak from the midst of the fire, he was shaken.
When God revealed the fact that he would become a deliverer to the Hebrew people who were under bondage in Egypt, Moses replied, “Whom shall I say sent me?” God answered, “I AM, THAT I AM.” God did not refer to Himself by a specific title, but described a nature. I AM, means SELF EXISTENT ONE or I AM THAT, THAT I BECOME.
When Moses received the law on Mount Sinai one of God’s commandments was, thou shalt not take the NAME of the Lord thy God in vain.
The word NAME means NATURE.
Hebrew 8034, Strong’s
A primitive word, perhaps rather from Hebrew 7760 through the idea of definite and conspicuous position, compare Hebrew 8064 and appellation, as a mark or memorial of individuality, by implication honor, authority, character, name.
In order not to defile the name or nature of I AM, the Hebrews used many words to describe God. One of the words used was HEAVEN. God was to be exalted in their eyes, and the highest thing they could relate to was the physical heavens. Therefore, they began to use the word HEAVEN in relation to GOD.
When Jesus came declaring, “I AM,” the religious leaders of the day became very upset and accused Him of blasphemy and taking the name or nature of God upon Himself. They did not believe He had a divine nature; but was the earthy son of Mary and Joseph.
John 8:58: Jesus said unto them, verily, verily, I say unto you, before Abraham was, I AM.
He was declaring that He was the logos word or seed of all creation that existed in Spirit from the beginning. The I AM had become Adam and through a process was now standing in perfection before them. A manifestation in the earth of what had been hidden in Spirit. He had become one with the seed that had created all things and now as an incorruptible seed would fall to the earth and die that it would bring forth much fruit.
He became the seed line of a new specie in the earth. A new man walking that had never walked before! The firstborn of a new creation man that would produce a seed after the likeness and image of Himself.
Genesis 6:1, 2: And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
In the above scripture, we see two classes of people, the sons of God and the daughters of men.
After Enoch’s translation, the earth was filled with the sons of God. The priesthood order of the golden age of Adam; referred to in the scripture as Melchizedek. This priesthood was after the order of an endless life. Adam was the first Melchizedek priest and is described in the book of Hebrews as:
Hebrews 7:3: Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life, but make like unto the son of God; abideth a priest continually.
The first man Adam was a new specie in the earth. The essence of who he was did not descend from a natural father and mother, but was breathed into him as God formed or squeezed him into shape. He was to dress and keep the garden of God and exercise dominion in the earth.
The daughters of men, (the beasts of the field), were those religious orders that were formed out of the carnality of unenlightened men who lived in the days of Adam’s glory.
I’m sure the sons of God believed they would be translated and not see death as their forefather Enoch, but, God had another plan for the second day of His creation.
Enoch according to the scripture, had a son called Methuselah.
The name METHUSELAH means:
Hebrew 4968 (math) and Hebrew 7973 (man of a dart; Methuselah, an antediluvian patriarch); It shall be sent or deluge.
There is a prophecy hidden in the name of Methuselah. Enoch named his son Methuselah as a witness to creation a deluge or flood was coming, that would destroy all fleshly identity!
Methuselah lived nine hundred and sixty nine years, as a witness in the earth, but mankind was looking backward and missed the day of their deliverance in the ark.
Enoch is referred to in the scripture as being the seventh from Adam. We can see, also, that as the light of God in his day, he was not limited to the first day, for he could see the end from the beginning. The light of his revelation was translated out of the first day into the seventh day! The spirit of Elijah’s ministry prophesied through John the Baptist in another day other than the one in which he lived physically and was recognized by Jesus as being the voice of one crying in the wilderness of tradition. A sound that was declaring repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand and that the axe was laid to the root of Israel‘s tree for another day was ready to be revealed. We can hear the voice of Enoch today through a many membered son of God as the axe is once again laid to the root of a religious community that has it’s foundation in tradition and doctrines of men.
Genesis 6:5: 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.
Genesis 6:8: But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.
God informed Noah that He was going to cause it to rain upon the earth; and gave him the blueprints to build an ark that would become his salvation. Noah could have followed after something that had worked in the past for his ancestor Enoch, but he heard the witness of Methuselah speak and obeyed God’s will for the second day.
It is human nature to cling to the traditions of the elders, but, God is progressive in His dealings with man and may have something different for us to accomplish.
B. God commanded the firmament to be a division between the waters above and the waters below:
Remember there are two classes of people alive in the earth; the sons of God and the daughters of men.
The sons of God surrendered to the mixture of knowledge their father Adam partook of and began to mingle with other religious orders of the day.
There had to be a separation in order to preserve a seed line. God gave Noah a plan of salvation. The ark was to become a refuge; but, God also commanded it to be a division between the waters that fell from above, and the waters that rose from beneath.
When Noah entered into the ark or firmament, God caused the rain to fall from above and the waters to rise from beneath. When the Spirit of God begins to fall upon creation, everything is resurrected. There has to be a division of the waters, and only God can manifest truth.
The ark Noah entered into was a type and shadow of God’s plan of salvation for man, that will separate the sons of God from the daughters of men, light from darkness and flesh from Spirit.
THE THIRD DAY
The third day begins with Noah and ends with Abraham.
Genesis 1:9, 18: And God said, let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear; and it was so. And God called the dry land earth, and the gathering together of the waters called He seas; and God saw that it was good. And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth, and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind; and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the third day.
On the third day God did the following:
A. COMMANDED THE WATERS TO BE GATHERED INTO ONE PLACE.
B. COMMANDED DRY LAND TO APPEAR.
C. COMMANDED THE EARTH TO BRING FORTH THE SEED WITHIN ITSELF.
A. Commanded the waters to be gathered into one place.
Noah entered into the ark on the seventeenth day of the second month. In Bible numeric the number two means: unity, division and witnessing. Noah, by uniting himself with God’s word for that day, entered in and found safety. There was a division in the waters above and the waters below by the ark that housed Noah and his family. There was a witness that Noah had heard the word of the Lord when the waters fell and destroyed all flesh on the face of the earth. The number seventeen means victory! Noah won his battle of faith by having a visible substance in which to enter.
In the following scripture we see that the whole earth was of one language and one speech. The waters were gathered together! A spirit of unity was felt and creation was united together in one purpose; to build a tower whose top may reach into heaven.
Genesis 11: 1, 14: And the whole earth was of one language and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. And they said one to another. God to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar. And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
Mankind was following after Noah’s established salvation, trying to build an ark! The flood was over! God had accomplished His commandment for the second day; yet, man could not see that God wanted to move ahead to reach His ultimate purpose for the ages. Their purpose and intent was to make a name for themselves lest they be scattered upon the face of the earth! They needed to be identified in their humanity. They desired to build a tower that would define who they were and establish a foundation they could stand upon.
We are prone to criticize those foolish ones who missed God’s mark in their day, but we need to shake ourselves and see if there are any traditional teaching hanging onto us in the day of our visitation. Just because something worked for our elders doesn’t mean God is blessing in that area today.
Our religious system is an example of man trying to define himself and explain to the earth who he is in God. It has produced a division in our spiritual language and has scattered and divided the body of Christ in the earth. There is no communication beyond the boundaries and limitations of doctrinal walls. As a result the church has failed to be a deliverer to a creation that is groaning for the manifestation of the sons of God.
Remember, Jesus told us that His appearing would be as it was in the days of Noah!
B. Let dry land appear:
Noah was God’s new earth. When Noah went forth from the ark, he built an altar to God and offered up burnt offerings to the Lord. God was pleased and gave His new earth a promise.
“I will not again curse the ground for man’s sake, for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth, neither will I again smite any more every living thing, as I have done. While the earth remain, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night, shall not cease.”
C. Let the earth bring forth:
Genesis 9:1: And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.
Noah was God’s voice at the end of the second day, and the beginning of the third. In Genesis 9:20, however, we see that even though Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord, he was still weak in the flesh. We see him planting a vineyard and becoming drunk on the wine. He lay naked before his sons, causing a curse to be placed upon one of them.
Genesis 9:20, 21: And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard; And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent.
Even though Noah fulfilled the second day, he could not fulfill the commandment for the third. He, like his father Adam, was a husbandman tilling the ground. His accomplishments through the flood exalted him to the extent that he became drunken upon the fruit of his labor, and like Adam awoke naked!
In the following scripture we see God speaking to a man called Abram, calling him out of his father’s house.
Genesis 12:1, 3: Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house. Unto a land that I will shew thee. And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing; And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curse thee; and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
Notice that one of the two intentions at the tower of Babel was to make a name for themselves, but, God confounded their language and scattered them over the face of the earth. God tells Abraham that He would make his name great! God does not want us to achieve any greatness by our own works or ideas. He will exalt us in Himself. God promised Abram his seed would be as the sand of the sea and as the stars in multitude; that he would be the father of many nations. Abram was to be the earth that would bring forth the seed within itself!
Abram and Sarah lived in Ur of the Chaldees under the code of Hammurabi, the sixth king of the first dynasty of Babylon. They followed this code until the time came that Abram heard God’s voice saying to come out of his Father’s house.
When God told Abram he would be a father of many nations, Abram replied, “How can this thing be, seeing I have no seed?”
In the natural it seemed impossible for Abram and Sarah to have a son because they were both old in years. They decided they would help God bring this promise to pass. Under the code of Hammurabi, if a man was married to a woman who was barren and could not give him a son to carry on his name, the married wife had two options; she could give her husband a divorce or give him her handmaid as a means of producing children. After the child was born, the wife was to regain her position as the married wife and the handmaid was to step aside.
Sarah gave Abram her handmaid Hagar and Ishmael was born. Hagar despised Sarah, and Abraham had to choose between Sarah and Ishmael. When this problem was presented to God, He told Abram to cast out the bondwoman and her child. It grieved Abram terribly and seemed he was casting away the promised seed. True, Ishmael came out of Abraham’s earth; but he was not the son of the married wife!
We know the story of how Isaac was born through faith in Abram’s old age and became the seed line that would fulfill the commandment for the third day; Let the earth bring forth the seed within itself.
The seed of Abram became God’s chosen race; and Abram’s name was changed from Abram meaning high father to Abraham, meaning father of a multitude!
It is ironic, however, that the seed of Abraham came into being through a manifestation of faith; yet, did not enter into the promises God made to Abraham because of their unbelief!
THE FOURTH DAY
The fourth day begins with Abraham and ends with Jesus.
In the third day, we studied how God gave Abraham the promise that his seed would bless all the nations of the world. This was not speaking about the nation of Israel, but the seed of Christ.
God did the following on the fourth day of creation:
A. SET LIGHTS IN THE FIRMAMENT OF HEAVEN TO GIVE LIGHT UPON THE EARTH.
B. TO DIVIDE DAY FROM NIGHT.
C. FOR SIGNS AND FOR SEASONS.
D. GREATER LIGHT TO RULE THE DAY; LESSER LIGHT TO RULE THE NIGHT.
E. MADE THE STARS ALSO.
A. Set lights in the firmament of heaven to give light upon the earth.
When Israel entered Canaan, Judges were set over them; and they were ruled by the Levitical priesthood. It was a corrupt priesthood, however, and God raised up Samuel to minister in the priest’s office. The people were not content with this arrangement and desired a king; to be as other nations. Samuel prayed to God, and the Lord said, “Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee, for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me that I should not reign over them.”
God sent Samuel to anoint David king, and not to look upon the outward countenance; for he looked upon the heart. David had the faith of Abraham within him and received the same promise God had given Abraham; “When thy days be fulfilled, and thou shall sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels; and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.” We know this promise was not a natural one because David’s son, Solomon, followed David as king, and the sons that followed him were corrupt. The nation of Israel was carried into captivity, and there was no longer a throne. In order for this promise to be fulfilled, it must be fulfilled spiritually.
Psalm 16:8, 11: I have set the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth; my flesh also shall rest in hope. For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither will thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. Thou wilt shew me the path of life; in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
David knew that God had promised him a kingdom forever and that his seed would sit upon the throne; but, he also knew that it was not a literal kingdom nor a literal throne. David is not speaking about the natural here. He is saying that his flesh is resting in hope! In hope of what? In the hope of not seeing corruption! He knew that God was not going to preserve his natural flesh, but was speaking of a seed that was to follow; because God had given him a promise of an eternal spiritual kingdom. “And when thy days be fulfilled and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom forever.”
Jesus is referred to in the scripture as the son of David, because he was born from the lineage of David.
The prophet MalachI prophesies his coming in:
Malachi 4:2: But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.
Notice Jesus is referred to as the sun of righteousness.
St. John 1:4, 5: In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
Verse 9: That was the true light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. He that followed me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
When the light in Adam went out, mankind began to walk in spiritual darkness. The power of life and death was taken away from man and given to Satan. Death reigned from Adam to Moses because of the absence of light. The law was given to the Hebrew people through Moses; but, its coming only brought forth more death, because of the condemnation it instilled in mankind. It was only a shadow of the reality that was to come. Therefore, sin revived and gained strength.
Jesus said in:
St Luke 10:18: I beheld Satan as lighting fall from heaven.
When Jesus fulfilled the law and became the perfect sacrifice, He cleansed the heavens! Satan could no longer rule in heavenly places. The scripture tells us that Jesus destroyed him that had the power of death, the Devil.
The word destroyed as used here means to render inactive. Jesus rendered Satan inactive in His humanity. He declared, “The prince of this world cometh, but hath no part in me!” Jesus is now seated in heavenly places at the right hand of authority and power! The scripture also tells us that we are seated together with him in heavenly places. The power of life and death is no longer in Satan’s control. The power of life and death is now in the tongue!
Proverbs 18:21: Death and life are in the power of the tongue; and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
God has given the power of life and death back to man.
Jesus was the light of the world; the SUN of righteousness established in the HEAVENS that has arisen and dispelled the darkness of the past, present and future.
B. To divide the day from the night.
2 Samuel 22:29: For thou art my lamp, O Lord; and thee Lord will lighten my darkness.
Isaiah 42:16: And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not. I will lead them in paths that they have not known; I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.
1 Thess. 5:5: Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day; we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
Children of the day! The night is past and the day is upon us! We are no longer children of darkness, but children of the day.
2 Peter 1:19: We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed; as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts.
The day star is Christ. Jesus was born two-thousand years ago in a manger. There were wise men who saw a star in the east, and recognized it as being his star. The star led them to Christ! Not everyone dwelling upon the earth at that point in time saw the star. Only those who were wise and looking for it, saw it. In one of the above scriptures we were told, we were not in darkness that the day should not take us unawares as a thief; but, we are children of the day.
Jesus is the SUN, the light of the world, and as children of the day, He is to rule over us.
The lesser light God placed in the natural heavens was the moon. It has no natural light of it’s own and can only shine when it catches the light from the sun. Jesus Christ, as the sun, has passed from our natural eyesight; but, creation has been able to receive a reflection of His light from the moon (church).
Like the natural moon, the church has no light of it’s own, but, catches the light of Christ and shines forth in the night. There is still darkness upon the earth because multitudes are still catching a portion of light of Christ through the church which is only a reflection of the true light. There are some however, who are living in the consciousness of the day! Their night has passed and the darkness that covered the deep has been dispelled.
Paul tells us in:
1 Cor. 13:9: For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
E. Made the stars also:
The stars are God’s individual ministries. They, like the moon, have no light of their own. Like the church, they, too reflect light from the sun.
Jesus was the day star, the morning star, and the star in the east the wise men saw. Jude refers to men as being wandering stars.
Jude 1:13: Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.
The book of revelation tells us that during the time of the early church, one – third of the stars (ministry) fell from heaven.
Rev. 8:12: And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.
They fell from a spiritual realm of ministry into an earthy one.
Isaiah 30:26: Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the Lord bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.
God made the great light, the lesser light, and the stars on the fourth natural day of creation. David began the fourth day, but did not fulfill the word of God spiritually. Jesus Christ the seed of David, fulfilled it and became the great light (sun), established the early church (moon), and called a ministry (stars) to reflect His light to the earth.
The light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun! When this happens, the light of the sun will be as the light of seven full days. God will be revealed in the light of seven full days of knowledge. In other words, His full purpose shall be revealed and nothing shall remain hidden or in part. We now see the light of six days past; and this knowledge has brought us to the threshold of the seventh day.
God is binding up the breach of His people and healing the stroke of their wound. This wound is in the mind of mankind; but, when His full knowledge is revealed by the sun, that breach shall be bound up and healed.
THE FIFTH DAY
THE FIFTH DAY BEGAN WITH THE EARLY CHURCH AND ENDED WITH MARTIN LUTHER.
Genesis 1:20, 25: And God said, let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind; and God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
For the first time we see the living creature that hath life bring forth!
In the fifth day of creation life came out of the waters. What do the waters represent?
Joel 2:23: Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God; for He hath given you the former rain moderately, and He will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.
The former and latter rains fell within the year. The former rain fell and caused the crops to germinate and grow, and the latter rain fell and matured the crops for a bountiful harvest.
Two thousand years ago the Holy Ghost fell during the feast of Pentecost. This was the former rain.
The root word for FORMER in the Hebrew has the following meaning:
Hebrew 3384, Strong’s
A primitive root; properly to flow as water (to rain); transitive to lay or throw (especially an arrow, to shoot), figurative to point out (as if by aiming the finger) to teach.
The former rain or Spirit that fell on the day of Pentecost was the teaching rain. When the Spiritual rain fell upon those 120 souls waiting in the upper room, the word Jesus had sown in the minds of the Apostles began to come alive and grow. They no longer wanted to go fishing.
The early church was established upon the word brought forth by the falling of the rain. The Spirit of truth had come; the teacher that would lead and guide into all truth. This truth became the foundation of the church of Jesus Christ!
The early church was destined to pass away, however, and it is best explained by scripture found in the book of Revelation.
Rev. 13:1: And I stood upon the sand of the seal; and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
The beast John saw rose from the sea (multitudes of humanity). It had seven heads and ten horns. The seven heads represent the seven nations that had ruled over the nation of Israel from its beginning as God’s chosen people. Those seven nations were:
BABYLON, MEDIA, PERSIA, GREECE, EGYPT, SYRIA, AND ROME.
The ten horns represent the ten voices of influence. There were only seven nations; but when Alexander the Great died, the nation of Greece was divided among his four generals, thus making ten voices.
These ruling nations and their voice had influenced the nation of Israel to the extent that they became an adulterous generation of people. They left the worship of their one true God and began to worship the gods of the nations around them.
Little by little down through the centuries of time, Israel adopted the ways of the nations ruling over them. Temple worship at Jerusalem became a ritual performed by man to the extent they did not know when the glory of God departed their tabernacle.
Verse 2: The dragon gives the beast his power, seat and authority.
The dragon of course, according to the scripture is Satan; but, in the third verse, notice that the dragon is red! In the Hebrew language, the word Adam means red!
The nation of Israel socially, governmentally, and religiously, had become the fullness of the Adamic nature at that time. The red dragon then represents the nation of Israel moving under the influence of Satan.
Ezekiel 47:1: Afterward he brought me again unto the door of the house; and behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward; for the forefront of the house stood toward the east, and the waters came down from under from the right side of the house, at the south side of the altar.
Ezekiel 47:3: And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth eastward, he measured a thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the waters were to the ankles.
The doctrine of Christ came from the east! Jesus was from the tribe of Judah who camped on the east side of the tabernacle during the wilderness wanderings. He was also the sun of righteousness that rose from the east!
The waters began to flow and were measured. When truth is given; there is a period of trial in order for it to stand as truth. The early church received a truth, and through the tests and trials of the wilderness experience, it stood in measure to the ankles! Therefore, it became the foundation of the church. The feet and ankles support the rest of the body.
Verse 4: Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through the waters; the waters were to the knees.
After the persecution of the early church, during the dark ages, Christianity was brought to it’s knees under the burden of Roman rule.
Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through; the waters were to the loins.
The loins of the body is where the reproductive system is located. When the reformation took place, the church once again began to multiply and produce after the spirit. This is where we leave the fifth day of God’s plan for humanity; but, let’s look at :
Verse 5: Afterward he measured a thousand; And it was a river that I could not pass over; For the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over.
The depth of these waters shall be expounded upon in the sixth day.
THE SIXTH DAY
THE SIXTH DAY BEGAN WITH LUTHER AND BRINGS US TO THE PRESENT.
At the end of the fifth day, we see the waters have risen to the loin area. The church over the next thousand year period continued to multiply. In 1948 a phenomenal event took place; The latter rain fell! God’s Spirit began to fall upon all flesh.
Joel 2:28,29: And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions; And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I our out my spirit.
Joel 2:30,32: And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered; for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call.
The sun was darkened in the fifth day when Rome overshadowed its light with its fleshly rule. The people could not see light for themselves and the only link they had with God was through a carnal minded papacy! There the moon or the church could not give forth her light.
Genesis 1:24, 31: And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind; and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind; and God saw that it was good.
Verse 26: And God said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
Verse 29 And God said, behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life. I have given every green herb for meat; and it was so. And God saw every thing that he had made, and behold, it was very good and the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
Since we are living in the sixth day of God’s creation, let’s examine the pattern pieces and see what God has done and is doing in our day.
A. LET THE EARTH BRING FORTH LIVING CREATURES AFTER THEIR KIND.
B. LET BEAST BRING FORTH AFTER THEIR KIND.
C. LET US MAKE MAN IN OUR LIKENESS AND IMAGE.
D. LET MAN HAVE DOMINION OVER ALL THE EARTH.
Lets examine A: Let the earth bring forth living creatures after their kind:
We know that man has two natures; the Adamic nature and the spiritual nature. These two natures war one against the other for rulership in the body.
Galatians 5:17, 22: For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary the one to the other; so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envying, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like; of the which I told you in times past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith.
A Christian can still be carnal.
1 Cor. 3:1, 3: And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. I have fed you with milk, and not with meat; for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.
Verse 3: For ye are yet carnal; for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?
If we sow to the flesh, we shall of the flesh reap corruption. But, if we sow to the Spirit, we shall reap life everlasting. He tells us further in:
Romans 8:13: For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die, but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
God’s command was; Let the earth bring forth the living creature that hath life. Since Calvary, God’s people, although they have the life of Christ within, have been bringing forth fruit of the earthy creature. They have been operating in an in-part condition. In other words, they still have the mixture of good and evil in their minds. As a result, their flesh is seeing corruption; our bodies are still dying and returning to dust while the spirit returns to God awaiting a day of resurrection.
Their spirits were made perfect by faith; yet, they are still not perfect without us. Why? Because Jesus purchased the whole man on the cross; and still, we see God’s people dying and seeing corruption. Having the spirit made perfect by faith is only an in-part salvation.
Romans 8: The whole creation is groaning and travailing to be delivered from the bondage of corruption.
Job declared, My flesh shall rest in hope, all the appointed days of my time will I wait till my change come.
His flesh was in hope of being changed to immortality.
1 Cor. 15:49: And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.
This tells us that there is going to be a change take place where death shall be put under the feet of a people.
B. Let the beast bring forth.
There is also a coming forth of the beast nature in this day. Since the falling of the latter rain upon the earth, we see all seed in the earth coming to maturity. There are things manifest today that have been suppressed and hidden under the cloak of darkness for centuries. Spirit is light and things hidden in darkness are made manifest by the light.
2 Pet. 2:12: But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption.
Jude 1:10: But these speak evil of those things which they know not, but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.
The above scriptures are referring to false teachers who deny God.
Jude 1:4: For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
Jude 1: 12, 13: These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear; clouds they are without water, carried about of winds, trees whose fruit withered, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; raging waves of the sea foaming out their own shame, wandering stars to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever!
We see these scriptures fulfilled today. The beast nature is coming forth. This nature is ordained of old to do this. God purposed it this way. All seed has been in the womb of God’s purpose and plan and now there is about to be a birth of all the seed conceived in Genesis chapter one. God spoke, there was a conception, a gestation of time, and now we are nearing the birth.
C. Let us make man in our likeness and image.
Many believe that Adam was made in the likeness and image of God in the beginning. Let us consider the word and see what it can tell us about the Adamic creation.
The first man Adam was the beginning God’s creation of man.
Romans 5:14: Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression; who is the figure of him that was to come.
Adam was a figure of him that was to come. Adam was a type, a shadow of the creation fashioned after the image of God. He was not the finished product! He was formed from the dust of the earth. His thoughts and emotions were formed by his environmental surroundings and lower truth than that of Spirit. Therefore, he was an earthy image of the invisible God.
All artists begin with a mental image of a finished product. A medium is chosen such as; oil, water color, clay, wood, metal or any substance that can be formed into the image in the mind of the artist. The medium is then formed and squeezed into shape through a process until it stands in perfection.
God chose the medium of earth, as the visible source of His creation of man. God is Spirit, and in order for Adam to stand as a finished product he must be changed. When God breathed the breath of life into earthy Adam, God’s process for man began. Earthy man had to be gathered into Spirit.
Jesus stood upon the earth as the last man Adam! The finished product of a process that had begun four thousand years ago. He stood upon the earth and declared, “If you see me you see the Father.” “The Father and I are one!” In the essence of His character, He was the true image of the invisible God.
Jesus referred to Himself as being, Son of man, and Son of God. Within Him was the fullness of the Godhead bodily. He was God in the flesh, yet He still bore the name Adam, and Adam was sentenced to die!
Under the Law of Moses, when a person was sentenced for a crime, a nearest kinsman could come, pay the debt, and the convicted person could go free.
The Adamic race had been convicted and sentenced to death. Jesus stood as son of man, a kinsman redeemer for all who were born in Adam. He was a perfect sacrifice, a lamb the law demanded to take away the sins of the world.
When the Greeks desired to see Jesus, He did not say, “Look on me!” He made the following statement:
St. John 12:23: Verily, verily, I say unto you, except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone, but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.
When Jesus was crucified and His blood spilled upon the ground, He paid the price for sin. He did not see corruption however, for there was a seed within Him that had come out of Spirit. It could not see corruption! Though He was in the lineage of Adam, His divine nature swallowed up all traces of His earthy identity.
As the last man Adam, there would be no more born after an earthy image. He was the firstborn of a new creation man. A new specie in the earth! A new man walking that had never walked before. A specie that carried within it’s genes the generations of Adam resurrected out of death, and walking in the likeness and image of the I AM THAT I AM.
1 Cor. 15:45: And so it is written, the first man Adam was made a living soul, the last Adam was made a quickening Spirit.
Jesus was the only begotten Son of God!
St. John 1:14: And the word was made flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
The word begotten means: He that hath the issue or seed line within His loins.
St. John 5:21: For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickened them; even so the Son quickened whom he will.
He was the finished product, the perfect seed of a seed line that would produce a new creation of sons all in the likeness and image of that incorruptible identity.
1 Cor. 15:53: For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
He went away in the form of flesh and returned again on the day of Pentecost as Spirit; the seed line that will create after it’s own kind. As we have born or carried about the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. This mortal must put on immortality!
He is the head, the firstborn from the dead and the forerunner of a new creation. His soul and spirit had become one in consciousness with the realm of heavenly activity and life, while his body walked in power and dominion on earth.
Today, in the sixth thousandth year from Adam’s creation, man will become in the likeness and image of the new creation man that walked the earth two thousand years ago.
D. Let man have dominion over all the earth.
God intended that His creation would rule and reign in the earth. Man was given six thousand years to rule in the earth. There is a people in the earth, an in-Christed seed, who will walk in dominion, dressing and keeping the garden of God. These sons of God will be identified as the first fruit company created from the seed of the new creation man that walked two thousand years ago.
THE SEVENTH DAY
THE SEVENTH DAY BEGINS NOW AND ENDS AFTER ONE THOUSAND YEARS.
In the sixth day, we saw that God made man in His likeness and image. He brought forth a many membered son that was an offspring of spirit. On the seventh day we see God resting.
Genesis 2:1, 2: Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had made; and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had made.
All Christians will agree that we are nearing the millennial age, a thousand year reign of Christ upon the earth, but they are looking forward to a rapture of the church first. God does not intend for us to leave the earth, but to take dominion over it.
Isaiah 45:18: For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; He hath established it, He created it not in vain, He formed it to be inhabited; I am the Lord; and there is none else.
The Father intends for us to take dominion through the power of the Christ that dwells within. It is Christ in you the hope of glory!
Christ has the dominion. He has the keys to death and hell, and if He dwells in us we cannot fail!
Exodus 31:14, 18: Ye shall keep the Sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you; every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death; for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. Six days may work be done, but in the seventh is the Sabbath of rest, holy to the Lord; whosoever doeth any work in the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed. The above is a covenant God made with the children of Israel. The Jews kept this Sabbath faithfully as they waited for their Messiah to come. All through the pages of this writing we have seen the natural things created by God were only figures, types and shadows of the heavenly.
Hebrews 9:24: For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us.
Hebrews 8:6, 10: But now hath He obtained a more excellent ministry, by how, much also He is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises. For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second. For finding fault with them, He saith, Behold the days come, saith the Lord; when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah. Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant; and I regarded them not, saith the Lord. For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts; and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people.
Col. 2:13:23: And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath He quickened together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses; blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us and took it out of the way, nailing it to His cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, He made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink or in respect of a holyday, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days, which are a shadow of things to come;
Psalm 132:4,5: I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids, until I find out a place for the Lord, an habitation for the mighty God of Jacob.
Isaiah 66:1: Thus saith the Lord, the heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool; where is the house that ye build unto me? And where is the place of my rest? For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the Lord; but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my words.
God is looking to man for His habitation of rest.
Ephesians 2:19, 22: Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together growth unto an holy temple in the Lord; In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
Isaiah 28:9, 12: Whom shall He teach knowledge? And whom shall He make to understand doctrine? Them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little; and there a little; For with stammering lips and another tongue will He speak to this people. To whom He said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing; yet they would not hear.
The full rest of God is near. We have an earnest of this rest as Paul stated; We groan inwardly desiring to be delivered from the bondage of corruption. We desire to see the manifestation of the sons of God, those whom God will indwell in fullness.
Jesus Christ received the promise, the rest, and ceased from His labor and let God be manifest. He continually stated the fact that He did only what the Father did. He was one with the Father and allowed the Spirit of God to consume Him.
The Jews could not understand why Jesus did not keep the Sabbath. He gathered corn, and healed the sick on their Holy day. He was constantly condemned for these actions. Their hardened hearts could not hear His word; He was the new day, the Sabbath of rest.
The Holy Ghost gives light upon the Word of God and reveals His plan and purpose to us, line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little, and there a little until it leads us into the fullness of the new day. This is the knowledge that shall fill the earth.
Christ in you the hope of glory! It is only the Christ within that can lead us into all truth. When we come to the knowledge of the truth, we shall be free indeed and rest in the Father, that God may be all and in all.
I have ministered the message of the Kingdom for thirty five years and have constantly declared a day when man would walk in life and immortality upon the earth. I have declared this word in faith year after year and have been fought by all powers that be. I could not hold my peace however; because this word has been birthed in my by the Spirit of God, and deep continually called unto deep.
I have observed many miracles and experienced many visitations and acts of God in my life; and have been caught up into the throne four times. In each of these experiences I saw things like Paul unlawful to utter in the established order of the Church. There is an experience that superceded all others, an experience God spoke out of the depths of my spirit ten years ago. It was the voice of the Son of God and it by-passed my natural understanding and used my mouth to express the word of what was shortly to be. I began to preach this experience to all who would listen. Ten years later it manifested itself in me. I will never be the same, for mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord. God told me He had allowed me to get a fore taste of what was to come. A witness of what was to follow. It is an experience that settles forever all doctrinal issues and man’s interpretation of scripture. It is a way back into the garden of God! No man can get there except he is seized into it; therefore God is in total control of this day of the Lord. It is an eternal day, a new beginning in which God shall be all and in all. The end of all flesh is near, for the sound of the last trump is being heard in the land and the hidden mystery shall be finished.
Rev. 10:7: But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound the mystery of God should be finished, as He hath declared to His servants the prophets.

SEVEN DAYS OF CREATION [Alyce McPherson] 1
