As we read through Genesis, we learn these precepts presented as a story. A closer look at scripture shows the primary cause of creation and conditions of the created in this particular storyline.
Commands and obedience work together. The living Word in and of itself is the command and the commanded obey.
1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the Earth. 1:2 the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters to impart a lustrous appearance and wavy pattern 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
Order, organization and assigning duty to every created thing is preceptive. The commander, GOD or MAN is the power. As such, man is empowered to assign duty by naming things and in this way, is empowered to imitate GOD. Every fulfilled duty is orderly and cooperative.
1:6 And God said, Let there be a firmament (a base of operations and processes in the Universe) in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. 1:7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament (Gates of Spiritual Existence also in Revelations 21:12): and it was so. 1:8 And God called the firmament Heaven (universe and worlds of spirit).
1:11 And God said, Let the Earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed (seed producing savory or aromatic qualities), and the fruit tree (firmness) yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the Earth: and it was so. 1:14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: 1:15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the Earth: and it was so.
1:17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the Earth, (the basis of light is the Spirit world)
Cooperation is implied in scripture when order is established and all things cooperate in the established order.
1:20 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 (skies). 1:21 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. 1:22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the Earth. 1:23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day. 1:24 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. 1:25 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.
Fruition is the fulfillment of the cooperative order. When all things are properly prepared, the fruits of fulfillment are presented as complete for usefulness.
1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion... 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. (Adam Kadmon)
In like manner, the continuity of life requires the same formula to manifest in all areas of existence.
1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish (transitory) the Earth, and subdue it: and have dominion 1:29 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. 1:30 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.
2:1 Thus the heavens and the Earth were finished, and all the host of them.
2:4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the Earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the Earth and the heavens,
The patterns of the Creator are established and the created imitates the pattern to manifest the same values. This is the relativity of the universe and in the Earth. Here, the primary pattern is repeated in all its aspects but apparently on a different level from the primary execution of the first command. In all patterns of imitation that follow, Light is included.
2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. (Adam Soul) 2:8 And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed. 2:9 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
The expansion into other worlds is part of the process of fruition. Tempering the created is also part of the expansion and fruition process. The created is tempered by support. Again, the process of command, obedience, order and cooperation is active.
2:10 And a river went out of Eden (upper Earth) to water the garden beyond (lower Earth); and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads (4 dimensions of adamkind = Karena).
2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die (enter the bardo).
2:18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
2:20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet (mate or equal) for him.
The manifest pattern for creativity is to take out of oneself one's own ideals and present the self to the self for satisfaction. KADMON realized this pattern and brought from ADAM himself, each seed after its own kind, cooperating and supporting itself through its own power of utility.
2:21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs (spiritual side), and closed up the flesh instead thereof; 2:22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
Fulfillment is realized here.
2:23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman (from "womb", a cavity or space that contains and envelops), because she was taken out of Man (mind or individual consciousness).
Next, the aspect of continuity begins again. This continuity is realized by the pattern repeated again on another level. Light is used again to reinforce command, obedience, order, fulfillment and cooperation. Fruition and continuity follow.
3:2 And the woman said unto the beast (serpent), 3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely (truly) die:
3:10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. 3:11 And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked?
3:18 thou shalt eat the herb of the field; 3:19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground (foundation, basis); for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
I Corinthians 15:35-38 But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come? Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die: And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain: But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body.
3:20 And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living. 3:21 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them. (Adam finite or Earthling) 3:22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: 3:23 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
To repeat the 3 primary precepts is to move out of the lesser into the greater: let there be light, let us make man in our image, let them have dominion.
3:24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword (LORD) [ honor / authority] which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
The story of Cain is a creation story in that Cain leads those that 'hide' from GOD and Earth into an even lesser condition. Earthlings or sons of Cain are not able to view GOD face to face or the universe face to face so that the things of GOD in the universe and worlds of spirit are no longer learned, assimilated and the commands, though used, have limited value. This is a restricted life, a life of bondage in and of itself, a bondage I call gravity and grave as opposed to joyous and free.
4:8 And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him (released the inner angel). 4:9 And the LORD said unto Cain,
Honor and authority speaks to Cain's honor and authority (conscience) similarly to "Psalms 110:1 The LORD said unto my Lord, "
Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper? (Cain denies his own conscience)
4:11 And now art thou cursed from the Earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand; 4:14 Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the Earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; (apparently the last time Cain spoke to GOD face to face) and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the Earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me.
4:16 And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod (sleeping - darkness - lower Earth), on the east of Eden.
4:21 And his brother's name was Jubal (conductors / duns browns): he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ.
Fruition in the upper Earth now takes the form of replenish supply.
4:25 And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, (replenish supply) whom Cain slew. 4:26 And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD.
5:1 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him; 5:2 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.
A pattern of falling and rising is evident here, similar to the greater light giving way to the lesser light and that cycle or circle of events. As the lights dim, so to speak, so do the ones in the lesser light diminish. As the light brightens, so do the ones in the lesser light increase. The point at which the lesser light is darkest is the point at which the diminished ones enter a deep sleep.
6:3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, 6:4 There were giants in the Earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
6:8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. 6:13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the Earth is filled with violence through them (all flesh); and, behold, I will destroy them with the Earth.
The pattern is again repeated, light being manifest and used to support obedience, order, cooperation, fulfillment and fruition.
9:1 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the Earth. 9:2 And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the Earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the Earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered. 9:3 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things. 9:4 But flesh with the the blood thereof, shall ye not eat. 9:5 And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man's brother will I require the life of man. 9:6 Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.
Here we have continuity that we call signs, seasons, days, and years. In the process of time, we encounter all these things again and again: the evils of man and the peace of GOD. Peace follows the subsiding of transitory and fickle thoughts towards life and success. Peace follows every destructive action in the Earth. Ages of peace come after ages of misery and conflict; plagues, infestations, war, illnesses, storms, are all followed by peace. This pattern persists throughout the Bible and throughout our history. These are not seen as precepts of GOD except as they are defined as such. These precepts are simply living choices of living beings. Sodom and Gomorrah is another example of violence and disobedience that leads to destruction and is followed by peace. To get to the age of peace that Jesus prophesied, we must tolerate the present times, cultivating peace and survive the end of sorrows, the last tribulation, that great day of the Lord. In Bible Canon, it is written "GOD brings it to destruction and renews it again." (paraphrased)
In the following verses we see that people that influence the global mind negatively, such as at Sodom and Gomorrah, are clearly seen. This occurrence is a sign of the season that brings the end of days that brings the new and eternal day. This is also continuity.
I Thessalonians 4:15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
II Thessalonians 2:2-3 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.
