Genesis

Hi Kim and All,

I am finding this Genesis to be quite unbelievable. Almost as if finally I am able to understand some signs and symbols that allow me to separate a few things.

One thing comes to mind and that is the thought that there are many new beginnings for Adam and Eve from 1-5. Almost as if each one represents a different beginning of sorts.

In 2 we find Adam with the animals and Eve then being taken out of Adam in the form of a rib. Following to 3 we have Adam and Eve with the serpent and they eat thereof the Tree.

But it seems to me, from how it is written that Adam and Even sinned while in the spirit form: before God gave them clothes of skin:3:21

Now we go to 4 and find that Adam slept with Eve and they concieved Cain and she again bare Abel. But it doesn't seem like a separate birth to me. It feels like twins or at least birthed at the same time the way it is written.

Genesis 4:1 AND Adam knew Eve, his wife, and she concieved, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD. 4:2 And she again bare his brother Abel.

What is interesting to me is that we have Cain killing Abel and then having children. And the first being Enoch. At the end of 4 and after the birth of Enoch we have Adam and Eve giving birth to a Seth. Seth has a child named Enos and then it is men called upon the name of the LORD.

So, it looks like we have two separate lines right in here. One of Cain and one of Seth.

We go to 5 and we find once again another Adam and Eve story although this one begins that God made man in his image, male and female, and named them both ADAM. So as we begin this new story we have ADAM and EVE as one. And their first son is SETH. And it is Seth that has the story of begetting Enoch instead of CAIN. Not only that but it seems some of the same names show up under Seths parantage that show the female sides of the male that was born unto CAIN in 4.

I also thought it was the women who tilled the land from stories I have read?

It's almost as if each of the chapters 1-5 speak to a different mystery leading up to the male and female lines split.

What is GENESIS trying to share with the CAIN and SETH streams? What is it trying to share with the ADAM and EVE versus the ADAM with male and female spirit united? It almost feels like 2 and 4 are a continuation of one another and 3 & 5 are a continuation to one another as well.

Now of Noahs three sons Ham is cursed for seeing his father naked. Hams people, the Canaanites, are to become servants to the others. The Canaanites are a goddess worshipping tribe from what I can gather of their name.

My questions,

Dottie

p.s A few names within this Genesis 6 born to the sons of Noah: Japeth: Elishah , Tubal, etc.

Ham: Mizarim, Phut, Canaan, Sheba, Nimrod, Assh'ur, Nineveh, Rehoboth,etc.

Shem: Elam, Asshur, Salah, Peleg, etc., Abram seems to come from this line of Noahs sons.
