History of Motion Art.
The Heavens and the earth were created by Father, Messiah Yeshua and Ruach Ha-Kodesh (the breath of YHVH) (Genesis 1:1 - 2)
Messiah Yeshua gave his life before the foundation of the world (Revelations 13:8)
That death and sin contaminated first the heavens (Isaiah 14: 9 - 17, Luke 10:18) before entering the earth (Genesis 2:9)
That as a result of the contamination of the Heavens Lucifer (now known as Satan) was thrown out of Heaven along with one third of the angles who died to sin with him (Luke 10:18, Revelations 12:7 - 17)
He and them all ended up in Hell in the heart of the earth as a reward for their wickedness (2 Peter 2:4)
That the earth was without form and void and that darkness was upon the face of the deep (Genesis 1:2)
That G-d along with Messiah Yeshua went about fixing the earth (Genesis 1:3 - end, John 1:1 - 5)
That at the end of all their work on the seventh day they rested from their work which they did which was very good (Genesis 2:1 - 3,)
That after their rest they formed man from the dust of the ground, breathed into their body the breath of life and man which was the male man and the woman which was a rib, became a living soul (Genesis 2:4 - 21)That this rib man was taken from the man and made into a woman and
brought before the man (Genesis 2:22)
That in the generations of ADAM in the day that G-d made man, he made man MALE AND FEMALE AND BLESSED THEM AND CALLED THEIR name ADAM (Genesis 5:1 - 2). Meaning that Mr Adam was a male man and Mrs Adam was a fermale man and that G-d brought Mrs female Adam to Mr male Adam and Mr male Adam called his wife WOMAN (Genesis 2:23) because G-d had ALREADY named HER.(Genesis 5:1)
And that as a result, it was not Adam and Eve who died, but Mr and Mrs ADAM (Genesis 5:1)
That the L-rd G-d planted a garden in the midst of EDEN and put the man in their to tend it (Genesis 2:8)
That the woman was formed in the mist of the garden of Eden (Genesis 2:8,18,22)
That they ADAM were given the first Torah Mizvah commandment (Genesis 2:16 - 17)
That it was within this garden, that Satan as a snake came to temp them to break that commandment and that as a result of eating the friut of the tree of the knowldge of good and evil they died (Genesis 3:1 - 22)
That as a result death came into the world (Romans 5:12)
That as Satan was driven out of paradice, so to were they driven out of paradice (Genesis 3:23 - 24)
Enoch was translated and tasted not corruptible death (Genesis 5:18 - 24)
The whole world after this was destroyed by a great flood in the time of Noah (Genesis 7)
but he and his family found grace in YHVH's sight (Genesis 6:8)
That after they came out of the ark to the covenant blessing of a rainbow, the first Torah commandment became seven Torah Noahide laws
The Seven Noahide Laws from my personal observations, are the commandments which YHVH gave to the pre flood Adam (Mr and Mrs) and the post flood Adam (Noah and family) and are taken from the verses of Genesis 2: 16 and Genesis 9:1-6 and practically all the web-sites I have explored including the Jewish Virtual Library confirm and affirm this (for those interested go to google and type in Seven Noahide Laws and a list of sites will pop up for your investigations) the diagram below explains this visually.[Giving Your All Is Not Enough...Page 48/ Nathan]
Here is a brief excerpt of what Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia have to say about the Seven Noahide LawsThe Seven Noahide Laws, also called the Brit Noah ("Covenant of Noah") or the law of the First Covenant, are the Jewish mitzvot (commandments) and halakhot (laws) that are morally binding on non-Jews. They are listed in the Talmud and elaborated on by post-Talmudic authorities. Opinions differ on the reach of these commandments and the laws derived from them, but all contemporary authorities agree that there are seven commandments. These commandments and laws are based on oral traditions as well as scriptural exegesis of Genesis 2:16 and 9:4-6.Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
It is also said that the Talmud states that six of the seven Noahide laws were given to Adam (both of them) and that the source of the six flow from an exegesis of Gen.2: 16. I have never read the Talmud, but to be quite blunt, as long as it is there in the Hebrew Bible and in context in spirit and truth, thats good enough for me. The Seven Noahide Laws are as follows1. You must not deny God.
2. You must not blaspheme God.
3. You must not murder.
4. You must not engage in incestuous, adulterous, bestial or fornicatious relationships.
5. You must not steal.
6. You must not eat fleah with the blood in it or a limb torn from a living animal.
7. You must set up courts to ensure obedience to the other six laws.
Here is my unfolding of the seven pre Torah laws and my account of each one of them in turn.
Commandment 1 can clearly be seen when YHVH basically floods the whole earth for denying him and casts out Adam for again denying him and eating the fruit of the tree of death. The denial came when they left life and cleaved unto death. In this I can see the link to Gen.2: 16every tree in the garden is life and is connected to me Adam but the tree of death is not connected to me, eat of that and our connection will be broken, you would have denied me.
Commandment 2 I could only see in the context of would you consider it an insult to find the love of your life in bed with your greatest enemy? In that respect, how great an insult was it for YHVH to see his first love created 100% of himself now Satans? Again, the eating of the unclean thing was the union unto it and hence Gen.2:16 do not have union with death; this is later expounded upon by Rabbi Paul in 2nd Corinthians. 6: 14-18.
Commandment 3 clearly comes from Gen.2:16 and is self explanitary, the day you eat from the tree of death is the day you will surely die and both Adams committed sucicide when they killed themselves by eating death, this was later to be the ultimate enactment when Cain killed his brother Able.
Commandment 4 from my point of view ties to Gen.2: 16 as it comes before this verse in Gen.1:26, where YHVH clearly commands mankind to engage in no other sexual activity other then that between husband and wife, making sure that the union between husband and wife flowed as one with their union to him.
Commandment 5 was not such an easy one to figure out but this commandment not to steal, from my analysis, stems from Gen.2:16 where YHVH tells Adam not to eat from the tree of death, in other words Adam is free to touch it and so far as I see in the scriptures, was even free to pull the friut from the tree itself (bearing in mind no one knows what the fruit was or looked like) but he was not free to eat the fruit and therefore looking at the fruit, touching or holding the fruit was permissible, but beyond that, they would stroll into forbidden territory and would become guilty of illegally possessing property not appropriated through legal rights ie theft, a typical example of this being the right to view collectables in the British museum and the right to hold the food in the shops stores, but not to eat that food or take it from the building until you either obtain permission or have paid for the item/items, anything else would be classified as theft. The British definition of theft unless it has now changed use to be "Dishonestly appropriating property with the intention to permanently deprive the other of it" And right there in the Garden of Eden Adam had the right to handle the gardens contents and eat of its fruit, but handling the tree of death did not extend into eating that fruit. Knowing the rules and failing to abide by them, brought about an appropriation of property which was illegally come by and coupled with the intention to eat that property, in my books constituted an intention to permanently deprive YHVH and the tree of that particular friut and the eating of that fruit did cause Adam to permanently aquire that property which did not belong to him, in other words HE ATE IT AND AS A RESULT OF EATING IT HE NICKED IT AND ATE IT THEFT.
Commandment 6 speaks for itself and is found in Gen.2: 16 where YHVH makes it known to Adam that they are not allowed to eat ANY FLESH WHATSOEVER whether living or dead and he then in Gen.9:1-6 makes the same word known to Noah just after he and his family comes out of the ark by telling them that all flesh is given into their hands for food but it must be drained of blood and cooked thoroughly to ensure no blood remains and from here you see that the commandment not to eat any flesh whatsoever, no matter whether torn by beasts, or alive or dead, is lifted to being able to eat flesh that they kill and drain of blood (all flesh is given TO YOU for food) but note that they are still restricted by that law and cannot eat meat killed by another beast or torn by another animal and finally
commandment 7 is again taken from Gen.1:26- 28 where YHVH states that mankind should multiply and have righteous rule over all the earth, righteous rule cannot happen without righteous laws to govern.
