The obedience of Jesus to the commandment given mankind that the earth be overspread by holiness, rather than sin is considered, today. Also, there is more on time before the sun. The “Yahoo! Answers” Top Contributor using the ID “?” (Level 5 with 7,519 points, a member since May 20, 2012) posted the following:

Why didn’t the Christ Jesus obey God’s commandment given to us in Genesis 9:7?

God found a human mate worthy of giving birth of the Christ Jesus. Surely Jesus could have found a mate worthy of his holy seed, no?

God says in Genesis 38:9-10 that wasting thy seed upon the ground is wicked in the sight of the Lord. So why didn’t the Christ Jesus pick a wife and make babies?

Please do not say “because our salvation was more important.” If Jesus was half man or all man then he should do as men are commanded, no? Besides making a baby or two or three wouldn’t stop him from sacrificing himself.

Let’s face it, the only reason Jesus didn’t make any babies is because the people who concocted the story didn’t think it would benefit their cause, yes?


THE BATTLE AXE: Time Before the Sun? (04/14/2013)—(6) Ideas declaring that human life and reality depend upon the sun, the moon, or the stars come in many forms, and are rightly called “idol worship” and “idolatry”. It is a noxious truth, that there are those in the earth who deny the King of Glory. Why? Because they can tell whenever the sun is shining. See Deuteronomy 4: 15-20, Job 31: 26-28 and John 1: 1-14, KJV. (7) While existence of the sun and moon are described in an account of Creation, the divinely provided lights pertain to the proclamation of Divine name, the revelation of GOD, and that GOD is known as sovereign above all that is. As features of the natural world, the sun and moon are not eternal or permanent; yet, their status as both “universal” in human experience, and beyond human ability to alter or change them, fit the sun and moon to be used illustrating the righteousness of GOD in covenant. More than this, the supremacy of GOD is further established in the removal of sun and moon. See Joshua 10: 12-14, Jeremiah 31: 31-37, Psalms 19: 1-7 and Isaiah 24: 17-23, KJV. (8) The Advent of Christ is also signaled in natural events. Consider again, the instruction from Jesus (Matthew 24: 27-31, KJV).

THE GOLDEN ARROW: But which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, will say unto him by and by, when he is come from the field, Go and sit down to meat? And will not rather say unto him, Make ready wherewith I may sup, and gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and drunken; and afterward thou shalt eat and drink? Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him? I trow not. So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do. (Luke 17: 7-10, King James Version)

Dear “?”, the obedience of Jesus to commands that the earth be nourished and replenished are to be seen and understood as accomplished “in spirit,” rather than “flesh and bone.” Where men and women become perfected (i.e., mature), they correctly understand that GOD is a spirit, and we must acknowledge and worship GOD in spirit and in truth, not merely through our senses, physical matter and social being. Dutiful obedience has a peculiar place, where initiative, love (unselfish desire to benefit), and genuine union in the Divine Person have a higher place.

The offspring of Jesus are those who, believing, submit to operations by the same Spirit of GOD that established the heavens and the earth at Creation. Human nature is transformed through baptism that is spiritual death, rebirth from divine substance (holy DNA, so to speak), and regeneration. Those born again, are also spoken of as adopted through the Holy Spirit.

There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, there may now be billions who have come to GOD through Jesus Christ. According to the holy writings, these include Abraham, Moses, David, and me.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.

Creation of the earth, time, and the sun are topics, today. Also, there is more on why blood. The “Yahoo! Answers” writer using ID “Love doctor” (Level 1 with 40 points, a member since April 6, 2013) posted the following:

Spiritually speaking, if God created the sun on the fourth day…?

..how did he know 4 days had passed?


THE BATTLE AXE: Why Blood? (04/13/2013)—(5.) Lasting and permanent salvation for finite created beings and living creatures, who contain deposits of divine substance, requires direct participation of Eternal Person as a substitute in judgment, and other sacred processes. Included are birth, death, incarnation, re-birth, repentance, resurrection, and sanctification. (6.) Both the full revelation of GOD to the Creation, and the various sacred operations to establish created beings and living creatures as immortal and incorruptible require that GOD, who is a spirit, appear in flesh and bone. In blood, flesh and spirit are bound or yoked, for blood conveys and carries life, yet, is not the life itself. See John 24: 36-43, Genesis 9: 1-7 and Leviticus 17: 1-16, KJV. (7.) Jesus, the Son of GOD, appears in the earth as the “ram caught in the thicket” and the Lamb of GOD to accomplish sacred purposes portrayed in Abraham’s offering of Isaac, as well as demonstrated in the meal shared to seal covenant, the annual observance of Passover. Included are atonement for sin, consecration for service, and the receipt of divine substance. See Genesis 22: 1-18, 1st Corinthians 5: 6-8, John 6: 22-35, and John 6: 47-58, KJV. (8.) In the divine plans for human life, orderly judgment, and perfected justice blood pertains to absolution, cleansing and remission of sin, not to payback, reprisal, and vengeance. See Leviticus 14: 14-20, Numbers 35: 33, Romans 5: 8-10 and Romans 12: 18-20, KJV.

THE GOLDEN ARROW: And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever. And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done. Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book. (Revelation 22: 1-7, KJV)

THE DOUBLE DAGGER: GOD Knows Tomorrow? (04/12/2013); How Was GOD Known Before Jesus (10/06/2012); Jesus, King of Earth? (10/07/2012); GOD Commanded? (02/27/2011); Divine Light (10/04/2010); The Fall of Adam (10/05/2010)

What’s up, Doc? Your case is being diagnosed as spiritual confusion because there is a mix of errors and unspoken questions. Put under microscopic lab tests the following were discovered: (1) What did GOD know? (2) How did GOD know? (3) Can time exist or progress without the sun? (4) Could a being who expresses endless existence and immortality be known through sacred operations that emanate Creation and impart life? (5) An I don’t believe virus saying “days can’t exist without the sun” (rainy days excluded, of course!).

The prognosis is good. Where you will continue to show respect to GOD through faith, obedience, prayer and study, your case will not be terminal. You’ll live.

Many mature Christian believers trust that the account recorded in Genesis is a true description providing all the essential information for mankind to enter into covenant with GOD. By the experiences of faith, prophecy and the Holy Spirit many also understand the following: (1) Created beings, living creatures and Heaven existed before the fourth day of the Creation centered upon mankind. (2) Sin had become recognized through Lucifer, and began to spread among the angels before the fourth day of the Earth’s Creation. (3) The ordering and sequencing of discrete and one-time events was already in place, and a “rudimentary” mechanism of time existed by the fourth day. And (4) The content and order intended for human awareness included time, however, mortality was not yet a condition for the Earth’s Creation.

There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, (5) Light and Darkness existed before the peculiar tools of Sun, moon and stars. On rainy days, the beginning and end of Sabbath are known by these.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
