The Corruption And Restoration Of The Kingdom Of Heaven

 March 1st 2018 - As noted in the writing, Creation’s Contradiction Riddle, pages 1 and 2, the creation accounts in Genesis 1 versus Genesis 2 and 3 do not match up. They are in fact two different accounts, with two clearly different outcomes. In Genesis 1, along with verses 1-3 in chapter 2, everything is declared to be “good.” But in Genesis 2 and 3 there was corruption, loss, and death—even the loss of the Garden. And most notably, in the Genesis 1 account Yahweh’s name is not present. And equally noteworthy, His name appears in the very first verse of the next creation account. Genesis 2:4 begins: “This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that Yahweh God made earth and heaven.” And then throughout the chapter and thenceforth His name is repeated.

And you will notice in this transition verse that Yahweh actually even flips the creation order. It was first the “heavens and the earth,” and then flipped to “earth and heaven.” This seems to be quite subtle, but prophetically it is most meaningful—Yahweh flips things to make them clean. And you will also notice that “heavens” is now singular and not plural—“heaven.” So, why did Yahweh make these clear changes in this second creation account, including adding His name for the first time? And, you might question what difference all of this would even make. But given that the first purpose of the Scriptures is to prophesy, one can be assured these differences in these opening creation accounts are highly significant and telling.

In this report we will address two primary matters, and yet a third: (1) What is the significance of Yahweh’s name in one account but not in the other, and (2) why are there these two distinctly different creation testimonies, including the flip? And with these two matters, (3) what is Yahweh doing governmentally in the bigger picture of the first seven thousand years of mankind? Yahweh is government with select effectual order, and we will see and examine what He is doing in mankind and why He does it. Let us first address this very important matter of Yahweh’s name. And what we will see here lies at the core of the purpose of this report—to reveal His ways and works among mankind.

As noted in page 2 of Creation’s Contradiction Riddle, anytime Yahweh’s name is absent in the Bible, it speaks of the people being in bondage! In the book of Esther, in the book of Daniel (with exception to chapter 9 when Daniel cried out in repentance), and most notably beginning in Genesis 40 onward, Yahweh’s name is distinctly absent in each of these times of captivity! In the latter, the one time His name is used is in chapter 49, verse 18, where there is one last gasp of breath, one final cry of hope, which in fact says it all regarding captivity: “For Your salvation I wait, O Yahweh!” Is this not our cry today? Very much so, for it is most revealing and appropriate that His name is completely removed in the New Testament. Why? Because the kingdom of God was given to man too early, “before the time” (Matthew 8:29). It too has been two thousand years of captivity under Satan and the nations. And thus today we cry, “For Your salvation we wait, O Yahweh!”

So we come to a very great puzzle regarding all of this. Why is it that everything in Genesis 1 and 2:1-3 is good, yet Yahweh’s name is not present? And then in Genesis 2 and 3 Yahweh was with them but they were in fact removed from His presence, removed from the Garden. Frankly, one would think that His name being absent in the first account would mean captivity, and His name in the second account would mean His abiding care, leading, and correction. And of course the fact is, this is precisely where this first rejection occurred. They were indeed removed from His presence.

But, we have a very clear hint that something most unique is at hand when in the very first verse in this second account where Yahweh’s name appears, there is the testimony of a flip, necessitating a need to make things clean. And this is precisely what we see taking place here. If these were flipped, Yahweh’s name would eventually go to the Genesis 1 account where all was good, and be removed from the Genesis 2 and 3 account where there was failure and rejection. This is the same thing evidenced with Manasseh and Ephraim who were unclean by virtue of an Egyptian mother. They too were flipped in an act performed by Jacob and thereupon called Ephraim first and then Manasseh (Genesis 48:1 and 5). (Read here for more on this.)

So how are these two opening accounts in Genesis in fact flipped? The fact is, the good is lost and must be fulfilled in the end. And gratefully this will indeed be the ultimate outcome for all mankind. As with Manasseh and Ephraim, Yahweh has to flip things to make them clean, so that “good” is in the end. And the fact is, the “earth and heaven,” which we have had for six thousand years, has to become the “heavens and the earth.”

Paul was caught up to the third heaven (2 Corinthians 12:2-4), which means there have to be three heavens. We know that this third heaven is the Millennial Reign (click here for more), and there is yet another evidence of three heavens. Three is indeed the number of completeness, and this is seen as well in the tabernacle in the wilderness—the holy of holies, the holy place, and the court. Of course the holy of holies is the Bride; the holy place is Christianity, the Body of Christ; and the court is the nations. So, in reality the singular “earth and heaven” has to become the plural “heavens and earth”—each part coming into the pure kingdom of heaven. Like Manasseh and Ephraim, the first will be last and the last first. The “earth and heaven,” which becomes entirely corrupted, must become the “heavens and the earth” where everything is good! Oh the wonder of Yahweh’s works! And oh the wonder of Yahweh’s word! It is a marvel to those who can see, and foolishness to the blind.

I know this flip is puzzling to consider, and until the Bride has been entirely hidden. But let me now give you a simple natural example of what we will see in the fulfillment of the kingdom of heaven, and hopefully it will help you to understand all of this. Remember, what should have been good in the Garden, turned out to be evil. That itself is a flip. And that is precisely the case with the church, the kingdom of God given to man. It too should have been good, but quickly became evil. And in this example I will now give you, there is once again a flip, but back the other way where “evil” becomes good. In fact, what I will now share is where the entire examination of this report began for me—the spark that ignited a great fire of truth and light!

I was thinking of times past before the Curse of 1920 when men wore hats and would either wholly remove them or lift them to give honor and respect to a woman, and when coming to an entranceway would open the door for her and let her proceed before him. But with second thoughts, I recognized the seeming error of these. Let me ask you: In the Scriptures, when is it that the man is indeed to remove his hat? When he goes before God in prayer (1 Corinthians 11:4). So, both prophetically and governmentally, why would a man take his hat off to a woman when that is reserved for God?

And regarding opening the door for a woman so that she could enter before him, it is in fact the man who stands in the place of authority and governmental recognition before God, which is not given to the woman. This is clearly set forth in 1 Corinthians 11:7 where we read that the man “is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man.” And when Immanuel returns back to this earth, He will go before His accompanying Bride. So I questioned why men would open the door for a woman and then follow after her? But here again, there is a flip, a most important flip that is going to take place!

Who was created first in the Garden? Of course the man, Adam. He went before Eve and performed his work. And after him came the woman. This was most fitting. BUT, who will be first to enter into heaven and be birthed into their immortal, incorruptible, born-from-above bodies? The woman, the Bride. The masculine Body of Christ will still be in the grave or in their earthly bodies and will not enter into heaven to receive their bodies for another three thousand years. (Click here to learn more.) Thus, as it is written, the last will be first and the first will be last (Matthew 20:16).

So in fact, by the man opening the door for the woman to proceed before him (which I have always practiced with great delight, and even now will all the more do so), he is indeed prophesying concerning the Bride and the Body. The Body “prepares the way” for the Bride, and as with Adam is put to sleep, all two thousand years of it. Of course they will not receive their born-from-above bodies for another three thousand years. And likewise, when the Bride has entered into immortal born-from-above bodies, while the masculine Body of Christ remains on this earth in their earthly natural bodies, yes, they will “remove their hats” to the Bride, even as they would to Immanuel. So, once again, those before the Curse of 1920 were SO MUCH MORE in tune with the spiritual and by nature knew the ways and will of Yahweh—something that men and women alike today have forsaken and are blinded to by this world, this Curse of 1920!

And let me give a word of warning to women right now. You are trying to take the kingdom by force (Matthew 11:12) with your feministic pursuit of equality with the man, and thereupon disqualify yourselves from receiving the honor of Immanuel’s Bride. The first will be last and the last will be first, and only those who humble themselves will be worthy to be the Bride. Prove yourselves worthy ladies, and the same to men.

Let us now conclude this with a graphic representation of what Yahweh is performing in mankind, and provide further explanation. Graphically, this is what we see Yahweh performing in this first seven-thousand-year period, or seven “days.”

At the very beginning, man instantly failed and lost the Garden, which would not be restored until four thousand years later by Yahshua. And even then it instantly fell back into corruption for yet another two thousand years. You will notice that this is in fact the familiar two-thirds/one-third pattern of the church seen in Zechariah 13:7-9 and Hosea 6:1-2. But there is one critical difference. At the initiating level of the two-thirds part of the patriarchs, and then even in the one-third part of Christianity, they both fail! What is the problem? Because man has remained in the flesh the entire time and thus this outcome has been inevitable! But then at the higher level of the two-thirds part (two thousand years) of Christianity and the one-third part of the Bride via the Millennial Reign, the pattern will finally succeed! And then even at the even bigger picture, this is of course the Passing Over Principle, where Yahweh passes over the first (the four thousand years of the patriarchs), and He passes over the second (two thousand years of Christianity), and He takes the third (the Millennial Reign).

So over and over again we find the first part failing and the second part succeeding—either in full or in measure. Of course this is the two-bird law for the cleansing of the leper where the first dies and the second ascends alive (Leviticus 14)). Again, this is the way of Yahweh God. But people have not known His ways—only His acts. “He made known His ways to Moses, His acts to the sons of Israel” (Psalm 103:7). But today things can now be different—as we are seeing in the Bride work. It is time for the Bride, completing that which was begun two thousand years ago, repairing the breach!

So again, in the bigger picture, the entire six thousand years of man failed to bring forth that which was set forth at the very beginning—the promised “good.” Genesis 1 was indeed good, but Genesis 2 instantly added evil. Such is the inevitable way of carnal man. What we have to have is Genesis 1 where it is only good. But as the created we cannot handle evil. And when we eat from it we die. That tree of the knowledge of good and evil that makes us like God is and has been our guaranteed death! And from that tree we must abstain and eat only from the tree of life and the other trees of the Garden.

All of this that the Father is performing thus far with man is definitely a tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Why He does it this way is a wonder that this man does not understand—the way He puts man through difficulties and sorrows and loss and blindness and, yes, even bondage. These first six thousand years seem to be heavy on evil, and certainly so on blindness. Job’s counselor was definitely correct when he said, “man is born for trouble, as sparks fly upward” (Job 5:7). But I am sure this six-thousand-year period will work for the good side of this tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

Oh to have remained in the innocence of the Garden and to have only eaten from the tree of life and the other trees. And honestly, it is a costly and sorrowful thing to become like one the Them—knowing good and evil! But, Yahweh knows what He is doing, and we have the promise that all things work together for the good to those who love Him and are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28). And in this we take hope.

And we also take hope that in the end Genesis 1 and 2:1-3 will finally be fulfilled and His initial creation purpose will come to be. In that day we will each and all be most grateful, and be all the more wiser from having partaken of the dreadful side of this forbidden tree—evil! Yahweh is all-knowing and we can trust in Him and take hope in Him. Come quickly, Immanuel, and bring the final and MUCH needed dawning of your light! We implore you to come and reveal Yourself!

Actually, at this point in this report I had prepared to close it and post it. But, I was then shown even more. Let us take this revelation and truth even further. Following these first seven thousand years, there will begin yet another seven-thousand-year period. (Click here for more on this.) And let us add to this yet even another necessary point of truth. As addressed here and here, Adam and Eve were in the Garden seven years, and then came the fall. So, since a brief seven-year period in the Garden initiated the first seven-thousand-year period, and in Revelation 20:3 we read that following the Millennial Reign—marking the end of that seven-thousand-year period—Satan must then “be released for a short time,” the question arises: Specifically how long is that “short time”? To answer this, all we have to do is look back to the beginning of this preceding seven-thousand-year, seven-part, period. Once again, that which has been is that which will be.

We know that the first “short time” was in fact in the Garden, and was a mere seven years and until the end was good. And now at the very beginning of the next seven-thousand-year period we find yet again this testimony of something that takes place for “a short time”—Satan is released! So, for how long will he be released? Obviously, once again it will be for seven years. Satan defiled the first Garden at the end of the first seven-year period, causing the destruction of man for six thousand years. And in this second initiating period of seven years he “will come out [of the abyss] to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth” (Revelation 20:7-10). What that will specifically be is hidden from our understanding. But, I can MOST assure you it will not be a natural war that blind Christianity falsely presents. Until that time, it is justly a mystery, hidden until the time of fulfillment. And we read that after this short period, Satan is “thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone.” In the first seven-year Garden he effected the fall and misery of mankind for what would have been seven thousand years, but was cut short to six thousand! At the end of the Millennial Reign he will be released from prison, and for a like seven years will deceive the nations. But this time it will be the end of his afflicting and deceiving mankind, as he will be cast into the lake of fire for his own purification.

And furthermore, we find this identical testimony in Genesis 41:17-24 where there were to be seven “good” years followed by seven, literally, “evil” years. You can read more about this by clicking here. The true fulfillment of this good was the seven good years in the Garden of Eden, and will be followed by the seven evil years at the beginning of the next seven-thousand-year period. But, with Immanuel cutting the church period short from three thousand years to two thousand years and establishes the Millennial Reign, everything turns out different. The evil is reversed to good. Thus we see:

7 years —> 6,000 years —> M.R. —> 7 years —> 6,000 years

No Satan —> Satan —> No Satan —> Satan —> No Satan

Good —> Evil —> God with us —> Evil —> Good

Therefore, in the latter case, following the Millennial Reign the evil cows (seven years of Satan deceiving and wrecking havoc) will be swallowed up by the seven good cows—the next seven thousand years of the establishment of the fulfilling kingdom of heaven!

OH THE WONDER AND MARVEL OF YAHWEH’S WORD AND HIS WORKS! Oh the GLORY of seeing these marvelous things! Blessed be Yahweh!

Come quickly, Immanuel, and send us your Spirit (John 15:26).
