"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." Genesis 1:11
"Five things did Canaan charge his sons: love one another, love robbery, love lewdness, hate your masters, and do not speak the truth." Last Will of CanaanTalmud, Peshachim 113b
Each child takes the nature of its parents and conforms to the contemporary understanding of culture, education, religion, science and civilization that was their custom but which is the god of communism. Civilization, worldly knowledge and human reasoning against God's revealed Word (faith) comes from the Devil.
With each child that enters the world fresh hope is brought. But as they grow up, parents see how vain such expectation was, how truly their own natures have passed into their offspring, and how no imparted experience of theirs, taught from without, can countervail the strong propensities to evil that impel the child from within. They see their own defects and infirmities and evil passions repeated in their children, leading them astray as they once led themselves. No karma is possible, no redemption can be found, and because spirits do not die, the world can only become more evil.
Natural life is in the blood (Leviticus 17:11; John 6:53). And without a Supernatural change we follow the nature of our parents as Genesis 1:11 clearly states. The sole remedy for each one of us is to be spiritually reborn and receive the nature of our heavenly Father (the Word) in our soul, to bring our mortal spirit and body subject to Him.
Families, tribes and nations naturally follow and perpetuate the nature of their forefathers. By introducing characters at the appropriate place who otherwise seem almost entirely incidental to the main thread of the Biblical narrative, God reveals the nature or traits of the different racial groups.
For instance, the name of Eve's first-born son Cain means "smith" or "acquired one" (because he was not Adam's son), and he became a farmer. A "smith" is one who works in metals. Metal working is the foundation of technology and Cain's people have discovered all technological principles. Education, engineering, technology, civilization, and what man esteems "culture and the arts" originated with Cain. Cain built the first city which he named after his son Enoch. His descendants made a name for themselves on earth by developing ranching, inventing musical instruments and metallurgy (Genesis 4).
Adam's descendants are noted for no worldly accomplishments but they "walked with God." Hence the name of Adam's first-born son, Abel, means "vanity" or "transitory" (as a breath or vapour). Abel became a shepherd, spending his days tending the sacrifice he was to present God. Christians spend their days tending their sacrifice, a life of faith (Romans 12:1; Ephesians 5:2; Hebrews 13:15).
The contrasting natures of these half-brothers who became progenitors of the human races (plural) proves by Genesis 1:11 that Cain and his descendants are not related to Adam, or to God. Cain bore the unmistakable character traits of his vicarious father. Like Satan, he was a liar and murderer, and had the sensual fleshly nature of the Serpent.
Wherever Scripture records the "generations" of different families the word in both Greek and Hebrew is "genealogy." Each of the three families of God had distinguishing traits as seen in Abraham whose name means, "Father of a multitude". God promised Abraham, "I will bless them that bless you, and curse him who curses you: in you shall ALL families of Adam be blessed" (Genesis 12:3), but NOT the descendants of Cain or Canaan who despise Adam's kin. God has set Cain at enmity against us (Genesis 3:15).
Abraham lived after the Flood so the families of Adam who are to be blessed through God's covenant are within "ALL nations" descended from Shem, Ham and Japheth by their own wives (and not related by blood through intermarriage with the descendants of Canaan). Those related to Canaan by bloodwhether of Shem, Ham or Japheth, have no claim whatever on the covenant and neither themselves nor their descendants are on the Book of Life.
Clearly, blood descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob have no monopoly on the Abrahamic Covenant. This proves the Talmud to be a lie and the Koran false, along with British Israel, Mormon, Jehovah Witness and other 'fronts' of the self-styled "Jew", and God's unchanging Word true (Romans 3:4; Galatians 3:27-29). The Promise to Abraham is NOT to sons of the flesh but of the Spirit.
Abraham had three wives. His first wife was Semitic and was as barren physically as Israel was sterile spiritually (Isaiah 24:5; Jeremiah 11:10; Matthew 21:43; 23:34; Luke 7:9). Sarah means "a princess." She knew the Lord as "El Shaddai", the Almighty God, and bore the natural child of promise, Isaac (Exodus 6:3).
Abraham's second wife was the Hamitic Egyptian servant, Hagar, whose name means "flight." She called on the Lord as "El," or God (Genesis 16:13), and was eventually cast out of Abraham's tent with their son and took flight. "The servant does not abide forever".
According to the Talmud Abraham's third wife was Japhetic. She "dwelt in the tents of Shem" and bore six sons but the inheritance went to the son of promise. Keturah means "incense." (Reubeni Jalkut, remarking upon Genesis 26:2 and 36, quotes a Midrash to the effect that Keturah was a daughter of Japheth; Louis Ginsberg, The Legends of the Jews, Jewish Publication Society of America, Philadelphia, Vol. 5, 1955, p. 265, note 309; Translation from the Talmud, Midrashim and Kabala, London, Universal Classics Library, 1901, p.241).
The order in which Noah's sons are habitually listed in Scripture has been preserved with reference to Abraham's wives. The implication of Scripture being that the father of the faithful and the father of many nations, though associated with each race, the prophecy of Genesis 9:20-27 would stand. (The late Ron Wyatt's web site presents dynamic archaeological and photographic evidence for Noah's ark, including the tombstones over their graves). The father of faith did not marry a Canaanite. So even in the natural, Canaan and his lineage have no claims upon the Abrahamic covenant.
The natural promise to Abraham's seed through Isaac and Israel was later refined to come through the Tribe of Judah, then to the House of David, but ultimately through the faith of Mary and Joseph—without sex, thence to "whomsoever will" in "all nations" of Adam's race.
As Jesus Christ had not one drop of Semitic blood, being the created blood of God (Revelation 1:5), the promise to Abraham and his seed is Spiritual. Jesus had no association with "original sin." He did not have the nature of his parents or the god of this evil age as He was not born in sin but through faith; nor was He conceived in iniquity. Consequently He did not "enter the world speaking lies." Jesus was Abraham's promised Seed, and the answer to the Devil's question.
Paul leads us through the genealogies and history, proving that Abraham's promised seed was one Man (singular) who was virgin-born. Thus Abraham's seed is NOT physical and it matters not whether one is of the family of Shem, Ham or Japheth.
Abraham's seed was Israel's rejected Messiah. The wages of sin is DEATH. Somebody who was a kinsman, worthy and willing to pay sin's price had to die. Jesus was the last Adam, NOT the "last Abraham". He died for ALL of Adam's race, rose again and ascended to heaven to act out the ritual of the heavenly tabernacle for our guidance. He never married and had no physical offspring, but God said, "He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days"—in His offspring (Isaiah 53:10).
Christ's "seed" is the spoken Word (Luke 8:11) which does not return without manifesting what was spoken (Isaiah 55:11). Like Himself, His "seed" are born of faith in the Word for their day, not by sex. Isaiah 65:23 mentions the continuation of His genealogy, which is the Lamb's Book of Life. His offspring are conceived when our faith passes His Life through the mystic Body of believers to souls that can receive: "They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the Lord, and their offspring with them".
Immediately after the commission of the antediluvian sin, the doom of the world was pronounced. As Jesus foretold, this sin has repeated in these last days (Matthew 24:37-38). And He will take vengeance in flaming Fire. No Canaanites or sinners of Shem, Ham or Japheth will populate the new heavens and new earth as Canaan repopulated Earth following the Flood (Zechariah 14:21).
Genesis 6:1-4, "When men became promiscuous and multiplied on the face of the Earth, and daughters were born unto them, the sons of God lusted after the outward beauty of the daughters of men; and took any woman they chose. And the Lord said, 'My spirit shall not always contend with man's carnal lusts: yet I will delay judgement one hundred and twenty years'."
"There were giants in the earth in the days before the Flood; and also afterwards, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children. These Canaanites became mighty men as were of old, men of renown (like the sons of Cain)".
The Serpent's seed was in the ark. It was Noah's wife Naamah, who bore Ham's illegitimate son, Canaan. God commanded that the whole race of the Canaanites should be extirpated.
In Genesis 6:1-4 the term "daughters of MEN" denotes the mortality of Cain's Serpent seed race, contrasting their earthly, carnal origin with the eternal and Godly origin of Adam's race, "the Sons of GOD."
The "Sons of God" signify offspring of the original seed, Adam, in the likeness of their heavenly Father. "Daughters of man" signify the earthly by-product of man's lust and hybridizing, and not original creation from God. The phrase, "came in to" refers in this connection only to the male who visits a woman's quarters (Genesis 30:16; 38:16). "Men of renown" are men with an enduring name, like the sons of Cain and the sons of Ham who built the tower of Babel saying, ". . . let us make us a name . . ." (Genesis 11:4).
"There were giants in the earth in those days before the Flood (the children of Cain); and also after the Flood (the children of Canaan)".
Our English Bibles render "Nephilim" "giants," but the form of the Hebrew word indicates a verbal adjective or noun of passive or neuter signification, from Naphal, "to fall": hence "the fallen ones", the descendents of Cain. Afterwards the term is transferred to their offspring as we may gather from the only other passage in which it occurs (Numbers 13:33).
In the evil report which the ten spies gave of the land of Canaan, we find them saying, "All the people which we saw in it were men of great stature. And there we saw the Nephilim, the sons of Anak, descended from the mighty men: and we seemed to ourselves as grasshoppers, and so did we to them" (Numbers 13:32-33). It was the mention of the great stature of these men, together with the Septuagint rendering that suggested our translation "giants".
The roots of the Greek word have no reference to great stature for the word signifies "earth-born." The meaning of "giants" in our sense of the term, is altogether secondary, and arose from the fact that these beings of mixed birth were said to have displayed a monstrous growth and strength of body.
Eve was deceived and seduced by the Devil-incarnate Serpent and was still under the delusion she was bearing "the beginning of the creation of God" when she gave birth to Cain. Genesis 4:1 "I have gotten a man, even the Deliverer," or "I have gained a man, the Lord." Eve actually thought her first-born was Jesus.
Genesis 4 identifies Cain and his offspring as sons of the Devil: intellectual, full of worldly wisdom, cultured in the arts but liars and murderers. Like their vicarious father, Satan, they are conceited and boastful because of their shrewdness and beauty. Jesus castigated their children, the Edomite Pharisees, "You are of your father the Devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he tells a lie, he speaks naturally: for he is a liar and the father of all that is false" (John 8:44).
The Will of Canaan is the modus operandi of his heirs who control the present World Order and will rule the NWO. Yet those who are being robbed, enslaved, lied to and morally degraded have not identified the Canaanites in the midst perpetrating their genocide. They are indeed the 'hidden hand' behind all governments always working under a different name and in a different occupation.
We take the nature of our parents. Like father, like son. If you have read anything of the Babylonian Talmud, studied The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, or are familiar with the history of the self-styled "Jews" and the evil they inflict on this world in ever-increasing measure, you will recognize the nature of Cain.
In the genealogy of Seth's family there is no mention by name of either wives or daughters but among the Cainites the women were unduly prominent, and personal beauty and sensuous attractions were the only valued qualities. Among Jabal, Jubal, and Tubal-Cain we find the various kinds of genius and faculty which ever since have enriched the world. Here in germ form was really all that the world and natural man can do.
Early it becomes quite apparent, how much of what is admirable and serviceable clung to human nature apart from any recognition of God. The worldly life was then what it is now, a life not wholly and obviously polluted by excess, nor destroyed by violence, but displaying features which appeal to our mortal senses and provoke applause; a life of manifold beauty, of great power and resource, of abundant promise. There is abundant material in the world for intensifying and elevating human life; it may be used or misused by men who acknowledge neither its origin in God nor the ends He would serve by it.
The interests of men may be advanced and the best of achievements done by three distinct classes of men. The Believers, who work as God's children in thorough sympathy with His purposes; the make-believers who know not God but are humble in heart and sympathise with His purposes, though they are not acquainted with them spiritually; and the unbelievers who do the world's work for their own ends. The hybrids of Canaan are however, the most efficient in worldly work, in mental endowment, social and political wisdom and scientific aptitude. Just as the mule will outwork the horse or the donkey, all who tend to substantial utility may excel the godly in effort and output, but they are stubborn and treacherous like that famous hybrid (Matthew 11:25-27; I Corinthians 1:26).
We have nothing by which to measure permanent success, save conformity with God's will, and nothing by which to estimate how character will endure and how deeply it is rooted save conformity with His nature.
Contrast the nature of Cain and Canaan with Seth's godly line who, with Japheth, were to "fill the earth with the knowledge of the Lord" and teach all men to call on the Name of the Lord—preserving and sharing His promises (Genesis 4:26; 9:26-27).
Lamech boasted, "I have taken vengeance and slain a young man in my wounded pride for bruising the family dignity" in offending my daughter Naamah ("loveliness"). God chose to proclaim a seven-fold vengeance upon anyone who should kill Cain; but let everyone know, that if anyone injures Lamech, vengeance will be seventy times seven fold (i.e. forever): if anyone merely wound or bruise me, I will take his life in recompense." Contrast the nature of this self-sufficient man with the seventh in Adam's line who pleased God and was translated.
In contrast to the boastings of the Cainite Lamech, whose name means, "Why so with you"?, Seth (whose name means "compensation") named his first son Enos, that is, "weakness" or "mortal man"—a humble confession of the feebleness and helplessness of man, which is naturally followed by the next sentence, "Then began men to call upon the Name of the Lord." Here the word is Jehovah, the Covenant God. Satan and the serpent seed knew Him only as Elohim.
As evil culminated in Lamech, so godliness had climaxed in Enoch.
Naamah is said to have been the wife Noah took through the Flood. Her ancestry and Lamech's curse explain Noah's drunken state at her time of life, and why he had no more children. Ham satisfied her desire (Arthur C. Custance, Noah's Three Sons, Zondervan, 1975, p.368). The Chinese have a tradition that Noah was their first king, Fohi (J.P. Smith).
Ham was the progenitor of Canaan (Phoenicians, Mongols, Chinese, Japanese, Amerindian, Asian, Eskimos and Pacific Island groups). His people (Egyptians, Babylonians, Mayans and Aztecs) all were the innovators of mankind, inventing and applying technology for humanity, as if in the role of servants of mankind.
Note the practical, technical nature of Ham. The false religions of the world all come from a Middle East prototype which turned monotheism to polytheism and the evil one became worldwide. Thus paganism has a common origin being a corruption of the truth Shem maintained. It is very largely of a highly practical nature with very practical intentions—bringing rain, victory in battle, personal success, fertility, etc. In these religions there is no aspiration for holiness or the Presence of God (Alexander Hislop, The Two Babylons, p.330).
When Japheth's philosophical nature finally wedded the technical genius of the Hamitic predominantly Canaanite peoples, there arose the modern phenomenon of Science, enormously enlarging the fruits of this forbidden union.
Western "culture" has reached its present heights because it has inherited, as a result of overrunning and to some extent taking possession of the rest of the world, the accumulated cultural wealth and technology PLUS the sin of Shem, Ham, Japheth, and Canaan. Founded upon Christian principles, the US was once perhaps the greatest of nations, but like ancient Babylon she is weighed in the balance of God's Word and found wanting—the writing is on the wall.
Brother Branham said, "This America is the prostitute of the nations" (Revelation Chapter Four, Part III, 661:87-88). America is a national hybrid. And like the Amorites, her iniquity is just about full. She is the world leader in science but she also leads the world in sin. The Prophet said, civilization has travelled from the East to the West "picking up sin all the time as it came . . . and the most corruptible place that I know of is on the West Coast . . . Hollywood, the very hole of hell" (Evening Messenger, 10:68).
The tremendous pace of development in this end-time, as before and just after the Flood, is because Shem, Ham, Japheth and Canaan are working together. But this modern Babel is destroying moral and spiritual values because it is contrary to God's Word and accursed (Deuteronomy 7; Amos 3:3).
The initial family pattern, set by the three sons of Noah and Canaan, gave rise in course of time to three distinct racial types—Semites, Negroid, Caucasian, and Mongoloid. At first they kept together but within a century or so they broke up into small groups and subsequently some of the Semites, most of the family of Ham and Canaan, plus a few Japhethites followed the Euphrates from its source in the mountains of Ararat, to the fertile Mesopotamian plain (Genesis 11:2).
Here the family of Ham who had become politically dominant through Cush and Nimrod, initiated a movement to prevent further dispersal and make for themselves a name, thus bringing judgment. (This is easily understood if we treat Genesis 10 as a parenthetic comment prophesying what would result from the dispersal, and omitting chapter 10, read from Genesis 9:20-29 and 11:1-9).
God wanted to separate His people from Canaan. That was, after all the purpose of the Flood. So He confused their languages and separated and dispersed the various races and tribes. Once again the sons of God are mingling with the daughters of men. They share a common tongue. They are again dominated by Canaan; and as it was in the days of Noah, "their every thought and desire is evil".
As the prophet Daniel foretold, knowledge has increased but the wicked will continue their wickedness: "He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he who is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still" (Revelation 22:11).
Those with the nature of God will go Home to the Wedding Supper of the Lamb in the sky. Those who fall short will have to appeal at the White Throne Judgement. bb000416.htm
