Today, Scripture and points are shared on Adam (the first pair), divine law, and populating the earth through sexual reproduction.  Family with GOD as its head is not the same as family managed by flesh.  Eternal purposes that were to be accomplished through mankind having place as a life companion to Deity may only be manifest as destruction and suffering when taken up by those separated from the divine heart of love.  Adultery and intercourse between adult siblings has been labeled as perverted and unnatural; yet, curiosity, expressing sexual appetite, sex play, and the natural development of ones sexuality always begins in the home.  While divinity should be acknowledged for having created the earth, the stars, and the universe, it is correct to regard “the world” as having been created by mankind.  Many mechanisms and operations first provided by GOD have been altered, changed and re-fitted to be aspects of the world system.  Included are family, language, marriage, money, science, and weapons.  Following epidemic disease, famine or warfare, methods such as abduction (we now say, rape), captivity (we now say, slavery), incest, polyandry and polygamy have been used to maintain and restore balance, order, and stability.  The living have developed multiple devices for their own carnal, material, and social survival, and for that of their offspring.  Even so, family, the household of faith, continuing interaction with divinity, and godly relationships (e.g., ambassadors, apostles, friends, life companions, prophets, stewards) are yet present upon the earth through divine operations that include atonement, rebirth, repentance, and sanctification.  Consider again the following from the Bible, and the discussion appearing below:  Ephesians 2:  19-22, King James Version (KJV):  19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;  20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;  21 In whom all the building fitly framed together growth unto an holy temple in the Lord:  22 In whom also ye are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.  The fighter at “Yahoo!

Why would God allow incest in the old testament?

This is really confusing me because I am a christian and when I read that God allowed incest in the old testament its really making me sick to my stomach. Its making me think differently about God. I am really upset about this… I dont think I am angry but I feel that I cant move past this. God is good and has performed magical miracles for me but I find myself being cibfused and I dont know how to let this go. How did you feel when you found this out and how did you get through it? What do I do because I dont want to be an unbeliever. I have faith in God and nothing will take make me stop believing but when I read that it just really got me discouraged.

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days.  Gather yourselves together, and hear, ye sons of Jacob; and hearken unto Israel your father.  Reuben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power:  Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel; because thou wentest up to thy father’s bed; then defiledst thou it:   he went up to my couch.  Simeon and Levi are brethren; instruments of cruelty are in their habitations.  O my soul, come not thou into their secret; unto their assembly, mine honour, be not thou united:  for in their anger they slew a man, and in their selfwill they digged down a wall.  Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; and their wrath, for it was cruel:  I will divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in Israel.  Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise:  thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father’s children shall bow down before thee.  Judah is a lion’s whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up:  he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?  The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.  (Genesis 49:  1-10, KJV)

“Jerrika”, what you may be speaking of as incest has appeared upon the earth through innocence, and ignorance of divine law as well as through defiance, iniquity, rebellion and sin.  GOD is a spirit who has emanated all that now exists, and is reproduced within the living by imparting divine substance to their content and makeup.  The process of divinity for mankind to populate the earth (as for animals, birds and insects) was to be reproduction introduced through sexual joining of gender pairs.  At first, the moral, psychological, and social meaning of family, that we now know, did not appear.  Incest as the violation of eternal law began and remains in the same way as lying, murder and stealing:  operations of sin that oppose the continued existence of sacred law, of the Law Giver, and of all the divine order upheld by law.  Because created beings and living creatures can not discern and recognize sin as contrary to their own and the divine nature, sacred gifts and mechanisms have been provided by GOD (e.g., baptism, covenant, Incarnation, judgment, law, marriage, monarchy, rebirth, sacrifice, the Holy Spirit) for correction, and increased resistance to sin.  To avoid further error and spiritual confusion, carefully consider the following points from the holy writings that proclaim divine intent and purpose:

(1.)  Isaiah 45:  18, King James Version (KJV):  18 For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited:  I am the LORD; and there is none else.

(2.)  Leviticus 18:  5-6, KJV:  5 Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments:  which if a man do, he shall live in them.  I am the LORD.  6 None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness:  I am the LORD.

(3.)  Leviticus 19:  29, KJV:  19 Do not prostitute thy daughter, to cause her to be a whore; lest the land fall to whoredom, and the land become full of wickedness.

(4.)  Titus 1:  9, KJV:  9 But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.

There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (5.)  Titus 1:  15-16, KJV:  15 Unto the pure, all things are pure:  but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.  16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
