The Organization Of The Torah
Moses wrote the first five books of the Hebrew Bible called the Torah. They are the history of the world from the creation to the Promised Land. All these books are Messianic prophecies from beginning to end. They serve as a pattern of future events and guide the Messiah in every aspect of His life on earth.

Slavery The Seven Day Creation From Nothing (Ex Nihilo)
The scriptures begin with God's declaration that He is our creator and that He is go great and mighty that He completed it in six literal days from nothing.

Slavery Sin: Kidnapped And Sold Into Slavery!
We did not believe or obey God, so we fell into Satan's trap by ignoring God's warnings or deliberately disobeying God. We became slaves of our own fears and desires because we want to trust in ourselves and in the voices of the slave catchers whispering lies fabricated from our lusts to lure us to him.

Controlling Evil By Suppressing Knowledge
The destruction from the flood occurred within the third generation after Adam. The flood occurred 1656 years after the creation, Adam lived to be 930 years old and had his third son, Seth, when he was 130 years old. Seth died when he was 912. So the wicked people who died knew God and knew Adam or his children personally. Yet, none of this intimate knowledge of God or the cause of evil seemed to deter them or cause them to submit to God. We see the same open rebellion in the very presence of God during the exodus. Between the flood and Babel, God took decisive steps to slow down the growth of evil by employing these tactics.
An Evil Conglomerate. The Lord said, "Behold, they are one people, and they all have the same language. And this is what they begin to do, and now nothing which they purpose to do will be impossible for them." (Genesis 11: 6)
Unity in the purpose of pursuing evil seemed to bring the planet to a state of judgment within 2000 years. If God did not find a way to stem the tide of evil, then there would be no hope of rehabilitation for the children born to these parents in such a decadent society. So God took several steps to curb the rising tide of evil because it appears that the final judgment was for an appointed time about 4000 years into the future.

Science - Bible

Conquering Evil by The Strategic Revelation of Knowledge. God suppressed evil by suppressing knowledge. Now God does the reverse. He gathered people again, dissolved language and distance barriers and increased collaberation. In a strategic move, God will reveal knowledge after science has believed that they have conquered and ridiculed myth-based religious superstition.
» The Time of The End. Finally, God says that near the end of time He will remove all the barriers and restraints against knowledge. This knowledge that is both in the area of science and religion began to be revealed around 1800.
End Time Knowledge. "But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase. (Daniel 12: 4)
This infusion of knowledge seems to be part of a strategy to glorify God in the end. Those who hate God are quick to teach that religion is the death of science by pointing to the fact that the church forced Galileo to recant his belief that the earth is not the center of the universe according to the science of Copernicus.
These enemies of God ignore the fact that there were many good Christians who contributed to scientific research and knowledge. It was Christians who tried to educate the people and reverse the exploitation of man that was the practice in all cultures and religions for thousands of years.

A Paradigm Shift. God saved the best for last. He gave His enemies control of the best knowledge that would prove that He existed! Then, when His enemies were confident in their position and globally stated their position, He would reveal the importance of the information they have in their possession. This prevents people from backtracking and pretending that their position has been misquoted, changed or misunderstood.
So God brought us back to where we were before the flood, but with a reshuffling of perception that brought a slight advantage in His favor. Before the flood there were no language, technology or cultural barriers and people knew that God existed, but basically did not care. Now, only one fact has changed. We openly challenge the idea that God or a creator exists and attribute all that we have discovered to our own genius and ingenuity.

On the verge of the end of the world, we are in the same position as the people before the flood. Wickedness is rampant and we disrespect God and His values. We also teach that God does not exist.
In the midst of this war, two systems of values will be fighting for our allegiance. In one stroke, God has put Himself above the arrogance of science as these enemies of God have to acknowledge that Someone who said that He was God and Creator who made the universe in six days, when He came on Mount Sinai 3500 years ago also revealed to Moses a scientific model of the universe which He cleverly disguised as only a religious model of the universe.
Thus, He linked the religion of the Jews as the origin of the best that scientific minds are discovering.

Circumcision: The Surgical Removal Of Sin
Up to this point there were no atheists or agnostics. Everyone knew that God existed and what He required. They just did not care. They were openly rebellious and the threat of destruction did not seem to curb their enthusiasm for evil.
Hopelessly Evil. The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. (Genesis 6: 5)
God tried everything to get their attention. He used every method that others would suggest, then tried His own.

Slavery The Hope: A Man of Faith (A Short Flight Distance)
Open rebellion and distrust of God caused man to group together against Him. Sin can only be cured if we draw near to God. Instead we behaved like Adam and Eve. We hid ourselves and ran away and quarreled.

Slavery The Covenant: A Promise To Draw Near
When God found the man who would draw near without fear, He made a promise to him and his seed. God was basically doing selective breeding, because He would send the Promised Son through this line of people. Through this special Son, He would clone Himself in the human race, repairing the damaged genes, so that we are all born again through the uncorrupted Seed.

» Selective Breeding (The Good Seed). Is there no hope for those outside of the seed of Abraham?
God used the physical seed with the set of DNA that would be loyal to Him, only to create a nation of priests in the shortest amount of time. 2500 years of experiment in the wild proved that this would not occur naturally or easily.
The seed of Abraham was still rebellious. It is the transformation of the spiritual seed that counts.
God has to find a better way to let us draw near to Him. He did it by first drawing near to us. He became one of us.
However, we still drew away from Him. So like Noah, Jesus became the only righteous man on the earth again. But in Him, God had selected more than tameness, loyalty and submission. He had recreated a new human being with a new heart that loved Him completely. Can God take this new creation and retroactively apply it to every human who wants it? That is a mystery of the Plan of Salvation. It could be retroactively applied through gene therapy when He repaired the damaged genes.
God created a nation of priests in the likeness of His Son to draw near to the rest of the world on His behalf.

» The Spiritual Seed. After Christ we learned the value of faith and discovered that it is the spiritual seed that counts.

Those who believe and trust and come near to God like Abraham are sons of the Spirit, not sons of the flesh.
Whether tame or wild, God can transform our natures by breaking us and rewriting the genetic code which has the laws written in them. The wild seed will come to God when they are wounded and afraid and hungry for something better and they cannot run any more. They can be tamed if they make Jesus Christ their hero. Sin is a brutal kingdom.
The tame seed will submit to God when they acknowledge that He is the Lord and respond with absolute trust like Abraham. We can choose to be counted among the sons of the good seed. It is not an attribute of birth or genetics. When we choose to be children of the free woman we will be children of God.
Whenever a new covenant is made, God might add new things to make the covenant better, but He never removes any of the terms of the old covenant.

Slavery The Blessing: A Nation of Faith (Israel)
Can this man of faith inspire a nation to be so faithful that they can become a nation of priests who will teach the will of God to the earth?
The lives of Jacob and Joseph chronicle the experience of Jesus Christ and the church down to the end of time. This lesson will not be a retelling of the story, but a revelation of the pattern of events that will lead to the reunion of the two branches of the church at the end of time.
Christ came to take on the covering of the deceiver Jacob, so that He can transform us into Israel, the prince of God.

The differences in the number of generations in the genealogies of Matthew 1 and Luke 3: 23-38 show that the choice of genealogies can be subjective. It depends on how often and how young couples are when they have children. However, the genealogy of Matthew follows a pattern related to the covenant. The covenant never changes, it only gets better. It seems to last about 2000 years before a major change in the family who receives it.

The Future of The Nations
Prophecy generally treats the world according to these divisions. In the north is the evil land from which the children of God must flee. In the center is the temple and the children of God. There is also danger in the south, but it is the place where we flee when we are persecuted and wait for God.

The Pattern of Salvation
One of the unique contributions of this website is that God has revealed to us a pattern of events that seem to be dictated by law. The movements of nations, the wanderings of the faithful and the acts of God can be traced to a definite schedule and a definite sequence of experiences that generally conform to the terms of the blessings and the curses.
