Základné Viery a metodika Behind teórií biblických proroctiev paradox

Priamo na viery: Ježiš Kristus je pravda.

Oddiel 1: Biblia je pravda a svätý

Fakty: Biblia hovorí o Ježišovi Kristovi, že On je Pravda. Biblia sa odkazuje na Ježiša Krista ako Word, Word stal telom, písma stal telom (Jn 1,14). Ježiš ukazuje, písma sú pravdivé, a prijal ich ako taký.

Prijímame Všeobecné priestory: Biblia je všetko pravda, že Biblia je teda non-nezlučiteľný, a to je najlepšie dohodnutý tým, že vyloží sám.

Schválenú špecifickú predpokladu: Biblia je svätá kniha, biblie sú svätá. Boh je svätý, Duch Svätý je Svätý, Ježiš je svätý, je Biblia svätá. "Svätý" znamená apartness, svätosti, posvätnosti a oddelenosti, set-apartness ". V tom, že Biblia nie je ako iné knihy. Okrem toho, že pravda, že Biblia je sväté, a je nastavená od seba, a odlišný od ostatných kníh.

Biblia je sväté - aspekty predpokladu:

Boh úmyselne navrhnutý Bibliu čítať, ako to robí, inšpiruje ľudí, ktorí písali, že napísať presne to, čo oni napísať.

2 Tim 3:14-17 "Ale ty aj naďalej v tom, čomu si sa naučil a bol si istý, pretože vedel, koho si sa naučil [je], a že od detstva si svätá Písma, ktoré sú schopné aby ťa múdrosť na spasenie skrze vieru, ktorá je v Kristovi Ježišovi. Všetky Písmo [je] dané Božie inšpiráciou ods Božieho Ducha), a [je] dobré na učenie, na usvedčovanie, na naprávanie, na výchovu v spravodlivosti, aby Boží človek dokonalý, dôkladne vybavený všetkému dobrých skutkov . "

Biblia obsahuje osobitné vedomie, že Boh zámerne navrhnutý proroctvo čítať presne tak, ako to robí, sa každé slovo, inšpirujúca muža hovoriť určité slová, ktoré potom boli napísané.

2Pe 1:20-21 Vedieť to prvé, že žiadne proroctvo v Písme je každé súkromného výkladu. Pre proroctvo neprišiel do starých časov z vôle muža, ale svätí muži hovoril Boh [], zatiaľ čo oni boli pohnutí Duchom Svätým.

Biblia je svätá - Záver: I cez to sa pracuje prostredníctvom ľudí, v pôvodných písiem napísaný, môže Biblie všeobecne prijímaný byť rovnaké, ako keby Ježiš nadiktoval to cez iné, každé slovo zámerne zvolený s celou Bibliu zámerne navrhnuté tak, aby ako to je, až na každé slovo, od rovnakého autora / producent / tvorca: Boh.

Upozornenie: Rev 22:18-19 ponecháva priestor pre a historické dôkazy o miernom% rozptylu medzi rukopisy, naznačuje, že kopírovanie chyby sú možné, a v skutočnosti došlo. Originál bol perfektný, ale kópie môžu mať nepatrnú odchýlku od originálu. Príčinou je ponechaný otvorený, aby sa chyby - to môže byť pri náhodnom chyby, alebo úmyselné chyby.

Obmedzenia, boj s výhradou: Matt 5:18, 24:35, 13:31 Mark slová zákona a Ježiš bude "v žiadnom prípade pominú", "v žiadnom prípade zahynúť". Ako taký, aj napriek mierne% rozptylu v kópiách, sa ukázal ako skutočnosť dôkazy, pôvodný ešte známy, vyvodiť / odvodený od vnútri, a pomocou dôkazy, celé skupiny kópií, ktoré majú mierny% rozptylu.

Relevantné postulát: Boží prepínač z hebrejčiny do gréčtiny počas pokračujúcej doby pohanov, dokladá citátom v NT, ktoré lepšie odrážajú LXX ako hebrejčine, z prvotných kresťanov zdanlivý užívanie LXX, ochranu zo LXX kresťanov po Ježiša, je primárny a prvý preklad z hebrejčiny, naznačujú, že LXX by mali byť posudzované rovnako dôležité ako akékoľvek dnes existujúcich kópií hebrejských hebrejského originálu, a to aj v kontexte dedukovať / vyplývajúce originál z celej skupiny kópií s ľahkými% rozptylu. Inými slovami, LXX je druhý svedkom Masotoric, s ktorou by mali byť primerané harmónie.

Biblia je svätá - Záver: Biblia je nadprirodzene interaktívne, a bol úmyselne navrhnutý tak, aby interaktívne, s úmyselne navrhnutý človeka, úmyselne navrhnutý vesmíru, v silnej nadprirodzeným spôsobom, a to aj znamená pre naše obmedzené použitie týmto spôsobom.

HBR 04:12 pre slovo Božie [jest] živé, mocné a ostrejšie ako každý dvojsečný meč, preniká až do rozdelenia duše a ducha, aj kĺbov a špiku, a [je] rozsudzuje myšlienky i zámery srdca.

Ef 6:11-12,17 Oblečte si celú Božiu výzbroj, aby ste sa mohli postaviť proti úkladom diabla. Lebo nie je bojovanie naše proti telu a krvi, ale proti kniežatstvo, proti mocnostiam, proti pánom tmy veku tohto, proti duchovným zla vo vysokej [miesta] ... a vezmite si prilbu spasenia a meč Ducha, ktorý je slovo Božie.

Biblia je sväté - Sub-Záver: Boh má úmyselné účely k Biblii, ktoré sú nadprirodzene interaktívne.

Isa 55:11 Tak bude moje slovo, že vchádza vyjde z mojich úst: nevráti sa to ku mne prázdna, ale musí splniť to, čo sa mi zapáči, a bude prosperovať [vo veci] k čomu som to poslal.

Biblia je sväté - Sub-Záver: Boží zámerne vybrané konkrétne slová sú pravdivé, a Boh chce, aby sme sa držať Jeho zámerne vybraných konkrétnych slov.

Gen 03:01 Teraz had bol viac Subtil než nejaká beštia oblasti, ktorú Hospodin Boh robil. A povedal žene: Áno, jest Boh povedal: Nebudete jesť z každého stromu v záhrade?

Pr 30:5-6 Každé slovo Božie [je] čisté: on [je] štít, ktorý im dal svoju dôveru v neho. Pridajte ty nie k jeho slov, inak sa ťa kárať, a ty uznaný luhárom.

Biblia je sväté - odsek o aspektoch Premise - Boh ako dizajnér v Biblii

Biblia, kniha určená Bohom, nebude ako kniha určená človekom.

Iz 55:8-9 Pre moje myšlienky [sú] nie vaše myšlienky, ani [sú] tvoje cesty mojej cesty, hovorí Pán. Pre [ako] sú nebesia vyššie ako krajiny, tak sú moje cesty vyššia než vaše cesty a moje myšlienky než vaše myšlienky.

Biblia učí, že Boh je vševediaci, všemocný, všadeprítomný, nekonečne inteligentný a večný, ktorý vytvoril sám čas, on existuje mimo čas. Boh môže vidieť všetky doby v rovnakom čase, celej ľudskej histórii v rovnakej dobe, so všetkým, čo sa deje v nej všade - vo vizuálnej analógia - ako časová os, žijúci dýchanie skutočný harmonogram celej ľudskej histórie a všetko a každý v nej, položil pred ním, videl všetko, čo sa deje v tom, vo všetkých detailu, pochopiť to všetci, všetci naraz. Ježiš Kristus je sám "značka" začiatok a koniec, tvorca tiež, a Syn Boží, preklenutie priepasti medzi večného Boha a nás lineárny výtvory viazaný na vytvorené dimenziu času. Aj keď sme výtvory, ktoré majú lineárny začiatok v čase, bude večný Boh, ktorý z nás začať včas, aby nás do života večného kráľovstva, takže od tej doby sa budeme zdieľať alebo sa podieľať na večnosť s Ním, večný Bože, ktorý z nás, a urobil čas sám.

Gen 01:01 Na počiatku stvoril Boh nebo a zem.

Mic 05:02 Ale ty, Betlehem Ephratah, [ale] si najmenší medzi tisíce ofJudah, [ale] z teba bude, že vyjdú ma [to], aby bol vojvodom inIsrael, ktorých odchody tam [boli] z starý, od večnosti.

Pr 8:22-23 (Duch Svätý, Duch múdrosti, Duch Ježiša Krista), Pán ma vlastnil na začiatku svojej cesty, pred jeho diel starý. Som bola zriadená od večnosti, od začiatku, alebo keď krajina bola.

Dan 04:03 Ako veľký [sú] jeho znamenie! a ako mocné [sú] jeho divy! jeho kráľovstvo [je] kráľovstvo večné, a panovania jeho [je] z generácie na generáciu.

John 1:10 bol na svete, a svet skrze neho urobený jest, a svet ho nepoznal.

Rom 16:25-27 Teraz mu, že je moc vás posilní podľa môjho evanjelia a kázania Ježiša Krista, podľa zjavenia tajomstva, ktoré boli držané v tajnosti od počiatku sveta, ale teraz je zjavné , a písiem prorokov, podľa rozkazu večného Boha, dané na vedomie všetkým národom k poslušnosti viery: Ak chcete Boh múdry, [je] skrze Ježiša Krista sláva na veky. Amen.

1 Tim 6:14-16 Aby si aby [to] prikázanie bez poškvrny a unrebukeable, až do príchodu nášho Pána Ježiša Krista, ktoré podľa jeho časov on sa ukázal, [ktorý je] požehnaný a jediný mocnárovi, Kráľ kráľov a Pán pánov, ktorí len jest nesmrteľnosť, obydlia svetla, ktoré nikto nemôže pristupovať k, ktoré nikto nevidel, ani vidieť, ktorému [byť] česť a sila večná. Amen.

2 Pet 01:11 Pre tak vchodom sa posluhovali vám hojne do večného kráľovstva nášho Pána a Spasiteľa Ježiša Krista.

Mark 12:26-27 A dotýka mŕtveho, že rastie: čo ste nečítali v Mojžišovej knihe, ako v buši hovoril Boh mu povedal: Ja [am] Boh Abrahámov, a Boh Izáka a Boh Jakuba? On nie je Bohom mŕtvych, ale Bohom živých, vy teda si výrazne chybovať.

Lukáš 20:38 Lebo nie je Bohom mŕtvych, ale živých, lebo všetci žijú jemu.

John 03:13 A žiadny človek jest vystúpil do neba, ale ten, kto zostúpil z neba, [i] Syn človeka, ktorý je v nebesiach.

John 6:38 Lebo ja zostúpil z neba, nie aby som činil svoju vôľu, ale vôľu toho, ktorý ma poslal.

John 8:42, 57-58 Ježiš im povedal:, Keby Boh bol váš Otec, milovali by ste ma, lebo som pokračoval ďalej a prišiel od Boha bez toho, aby som sám od seba, ale on ma poslal ... Aj povedal mu Židia Ty si ale nie päťdesiat rokov, a videl si Abraháma? Ježiš im povedal: Veru, veru, hovorím vám, skôr než sa Abrahám narodil, ja som.

John 16:27-28 Za sám Otec miluje vás, preto že ste vy mňa milovali, a uverili, že som vyšiel od Boha. Vyšiel som od Otca a prišiel som na svet: znova som opustiť svet a idem k Otcovi.

Kor 4:17-18 Pre nášho ľahké súženie, ktorý je ale na chvíľu, worketh pre nás oveľa vyššiu ako [a] večnú tiaž slávy, keď sa pozrieme nie na veci, ktoré sú vidieť, ale na veci, ktoré nie sú vidieť: za veci, ktoré sú vidieť [sú] svetské, ale veci, ktoré nie sú vidieť [je] večné.

Biblia učí, že Boh určený na svete byť tak, že budeme učiť o Ňom, a dozvedieť sa pravdu o Ňom, skrze to, čo je "Self-Dôkazné".

Príklad 1: Tvorba je dôkazom, sme stvorení

Rím 1:19-20 Pretože to, čo možno o Bohu sa prejavuje v nich, lebo Boh ukázal [to] k nim. Pre neviditeľné veci o ňom od stvorenia sveta jasne vidieť, pričom podľa vecí, ktoré sú vyrobené, [i] jeho večnú moc a božstvo, takže sú bez výhovorky:

Príklad 2: Boh nás stvoril na svoj obraz - máme myšlienky a pocity, schopnosť k dôvodu s logikou, aby sa zistilo, že existuje rozdiel medzi pravdou a klamstvom. On robil, aby sme boli ako On v tomto ohľade, a Biblia tiež učí, že Boh má myšlienky, pocity a dôvody. Tiež Boh je individuálny, rovnako ako každý z nás má, a má jedinečnú osobnosť alebo štýl, ako každý z nás urobiť. Tak môžeme lepšie porozumieť tomu, čo Boh je, podľa toho, čo vlastní preukázateľne existuje v našej vlastnej make-up.

Príklad 3: Boh nás stvoril na svoj obraz - pozeráme ako Boh - Boh je neviditeľný a duch - ale Ježiš urobil svet - či muž či žena, ako vyzeráme Ježiša Krista - to nám pomáha pochopiť pravdu, že Ježiš Kristus je Boh, syn.

Biblia učí, že Boh určený na svete byť tak, že by sme o ňom dozvedieť, čo je ako "Self-Dôkazné" a tiež prostredníctvom "symbolizmu a symbolických náhrad".

Príklad 1: Boh zámerne navrhnuté vzťahy medzi ľudom, aby nám pomohli lepšie pochopiť vzťah s Ním. Podľa návrhu, v rodinách, Boh z nás mať otca, aby nám pomohol pochopiť, vzťah s ním ako svojho Otca a nás ako deti. (Niektorí ľudia tvrdia, kresťanmi vynájdené Boha ako otca-číslo, pretože sme oboznámení s týmto nápadom - Nie, vlastne v skutočnosti je to naopak - sme nevymysleli Boha ako otca, pretože to je to, čo sme pochopili, ale Boh úmyselne vynašiel otcovia, ktorí nám pomôžu pochopiť sa ho týkajú.)

Príklad 2: Podľa návrhu, Boh stvoril muža a ženu, ktorí nám pomôžu pochopiť, môžeme byť milovaní Bohom s rovnakou láskou ako miluje Ježiša, ale pritom je odlišný než Ježiš, a chcel ho nasledovali. Boh nám dal matkám, aby nám pomohol pochopiť, že je veľmi mäkký milujúci starajúca intímne strane sa k nemu nejako príde druhý, ale aj čo-rovná sa väčšia poslušnosti a spravodlivosti strachu mu strane k nemu.

Príklad 3: Podľa návrhu, Boh manželstvo, aby nám pomohol pochopiť vzťah s Ním v Ježiša Krista ako svojho manžela.

Príklad 4: Podľa návrhu, Boh súrodenci, ktorí nám pomôžu sa týkajú Ježiša Krista ako svojho staršieho, prvorodeného, ​​brat.

Biblia učí, že Boh určený na svete byť tak, že by sme naučiť ho, prosím, naučiť sa riadiť jeho cestách počúvať ho a ukázať poslušnosť k Nemu, v praxi to, čo je ako "Self-Dôkazné" a tiež cez "symbolizmu a symbolických náhrady". Nakoniec, sú stvorení na obraz Boha, obraz Ježiša Krista, k sebe máme "symbolické náhrady" pre Ježiša, a to štandard opatrení je preukázané v Božích zákonov. Nie sme bábiky, av žiadnom prípade sa považujú Bohom ako bábiky, ale vizuálne analógie, Ježiš Kristus je pôvodný imaged tvorca, a my s ktorou vytvoril, a predstieral, že vyzerá ako On, rovnako ako človek by mohol robiť bábiky , rovnako ako bábiky Barbie, ktoré vyzerajú človek.

Príklad 1: Nie sme aby idoly, ľudí, alebo čokoľvek Boh urobil, ako stvorení na obraz Ježiša, sme ako "symbolické náhrady" nášho Stvoriteľa, a ak budeme robiť idoly, obrazy Jeho stvorenia, potom symbolicky, sme "symbolicky nahradenie" sami seba do úlohy Boha Stvoriteľa - nám robiť modly symbolizuje dávame sami seba do role unikátny Božej, symbolizuje, že sa "hrať sa na boha", v podstate. (To je sporné, a pravdepodobné, že mnoho bábiky, ako sú bábiky Barbie, sú modly.)

Ex 20:4-6 Neučiníš tebe žiadne rytiny, ani akého podobenstvo [tých vecí], že [je] v nebi zvrchu, ani že [je] v krajine dole, ani že [je] vo vode pod zemou: Nebudeš klaňať seba samého im, ani tomu slúžiť, lebo ja Hospodin, tvoj Boh, [am] Boh žiarlivo milujúci, navštevujúci neprávosť otcov na synoch do tretieho i štvrtého [generácia] z nich, ktoré ma nenávidia, a shewing milosrdenstvo nad tisíckami tých, ktorí ma milujú a zachovávajú moje príkazy.

Príklad 2: Nie sme zabiť seba, ako my všetci sú stvorení na obraz Ježiša Krista - a sme ako "symbolické náhrady" od seba a neho v tomto.

Gen 9:6 Kto muža sheddeth krv, sa človekom jeho krv sa šíri: v predstave o bohu, že človek robil.

Exd 20:13 Nezabiješ.

Príklad 3: Sme milovať blížneho ako sami seba - ako by bol náš sused "symbolická náhrada" reprezentovať sami.

Mark 12:30-31 Preto milovať budeš Pána, svojho Boha zo všetkého svojho srdca, a celou svojou dušou, a zo všetkej mysle svojej a zo všetkej sily: Toto [je] prvé prikázanie. A druhá [je] ako [to] toto: Milovať budeš svojho blížneho ako seba samého. Tam nie je nikto iný Väčšieho prikázania nad táto.

Lev 9:17-18 Nebudeš nenávidieť svojho brata vo svojom srdci, ty budeš v každom múdre pokarhanie svojho suseda, a nie trpieť hriech na ňom. Nebudeš pomstiť, ani niesť žiadnu zášť proti synom svojho ľudu, ale budeš milovať svojho blížneho ako seba samého: Ja [am] Pán.

Príklad 4: Pre kresťanov, máme navzájom milovať ako Ježiš miloval nás. Čo ľudia robia svojim bratom, my k Nemu, ako jeho telo, a ako ako "symbolické náhrady" pre neho.

John 15:9-14 Ako mňa miluje Otec, tak som miloval vás: vy aj naďalej v mojej láske. Ak budete zachovávať moje prikázania, ostanete v mojej láske, aj keď som zachoval prikázania svojho Otca a zostávam v jeho láske. Tieto veci som vám povedal, aby moja radosť má zostávala v vás, a [že] vaša radosť bola plná. To je moje prikázanie, aby ste sa milovali navzájom, ako som ja miloval vás. Väčšia láska hatha žiadneho muža než ten, kto položí život za svojich priateľov. Vy ste moji priatelia, ak sa budete, čo som koli prikázal vám.

1 Jan 4:8-22 Milovaní, milujme sa navzájom, lebo láska je z Boha, a každý, kto miluje sa narodil z Boha a pozná Boha. Ten, kto nemiluje nevie Boh, pretože Boh je láska. V tom sa prejavila Božia láska k nám, pretože Boh poslal svojho jednorodeného Syna na svet, aby sme mohli žiť skrze neho. V tom je láska: nie že my sme milovali Boha, ale že on miloval nás a poslal svojho Syna, [byť] obeť zľutovanie za naše hriechy. Milovaní, keď nás Boh tak miloval, mali by sme tiež radi jeden druhého. Nikto nevidel Boha a kedykoľvek. Ak sa milujeme navzájom, Boh v nás prebýva a jeho láska v nás k dokonalosti. Týmto vieme, že bývame v ňom a on v nás, pretože nám dal svojho Ducha. A my sme videli a ktoré potvrdzujú, že Otec poslal Syna [byť] záchranca sveta. Každý, kto vyzná, že Ježiš je Syn Boží, Boh v ňom prebýva, a on v Bohu. A my sme poznali, a uverili o láske, Boh k nám. Boh je láska, a kto prebýva v láske prebýva v Bohu a Boh v ňom. V tom je naša láska k dokonalosti, že máme smelosť v deň súdu: aj preto, že je, takže sme v tomto world.There sa žiadny strach v láske, ale dokonalá láska strach z casteth: pretože strach jest muky. On sa bojí, nie je k dokonalosti v láske. Milujeme ho, pretože on prvý miloval nás. Keď muž povie, milujem Boha, a nenávidí svojho brata, je klamár: lebo ten, kto nemiluje brata, ktorého nevidel, ako môže milovať Boha, ktorého nevidelo? A toto prikázanie máme diel od neho, aby ten, kto miluje Boha milovať svojho brata.

Matt 25:34-40 Potom sa kráľ povedal im po pravici: Poďte, vy požehnaní môjho Otca, zaujmite kráľovstvo, vám pripraveným od založenia sveta: Lebo som bol hladný a dali ste mi mäso : mal som smädný a dali ste mi piť: Bol som cudzinec, a vy sa ma: nahý, a zaodeli ste ma: som bol chorý, a vy ma navštívil: bol som vo väzení a prišli ste ku mne. Potom sa odpovedí jemu spravodliví, vraveli: Pane, kedy sme ťa videli hungred a kŕmil [teba]? alebo smädného a dali [ti Zb drink? Keď sme ťa videli ako pocestného, ​​a vzal [ťa] v? alebo nahého, a obliekli [teba]? Alebo keď sme ťa videli chorého alebo vo väzení, a prišli k tebe? A odpovedal Kráľ, hovorí im: Veru, hovorím vám, Vzhľadom k tomu, ako ste urobil [to] k jednému z týchto mojich najmenších bratov, ste urobili [to] ku mne.

Biblia je sväté:

Okrem toho, že pravda, že Biblia je sväté, a je nastavená od seba, a odlišný od ostatných kníh. Biblia svätá môže byť všeobecne prijímaný byť rovnaké, ako keby Ježiš nadiktoval to cez iné, každé slovo zámerne zvolený s celou Bibliou zámerne navrhnutú tak, aby ako to je, až na každé slovo, od rovnakého autora / producent / autor: Boh.

Preto: Ak každé slovo bolo zámerne vybraný Bohom, logicky vyplýva, že tiež: každú vetu, každá veta, každý odsek, každá aktuálnej sekcie a poradie všetkých týchto, bol tiež zámerne vybraný Bohom, aby bolo ako to je. Tiež môžete všetky knihy považovať za rovnaký dizajnér / producent / autor, bez ohľadu na ich poradie v čase alebo spisovatelia.

Biblia, kniha určená Bohom, nebude ako kniha určená človekom. Biblia učí, že Boh je vševediaci, všemocný, všadeprítomný, nekonečne inteligentný a večný, ktorý vytvoril sám čas, on existuje mimo čas. Boh môže vidieť všetky doby v rovnakom čase, celej ľudskej histórii v rovnakej dobe, so všetkým, čo sa deje v nej všade - vo vizuálnej analógia - ako časová os, žijúci dýchanie skutočný harmonogram celej ľudskej histórie a všetko a každý v nej, položil pred ním, videl všetko, čo sa deje v tom, vo všetkých detailu, pochopiť to všetci, všetci naraz.

Preto: Ak je Boh vševediaci, všemohúci, všadeprítomný, nekonečne inteligentný a večný vidieť všetok čas naraz, a robil, že Biblia je presne tak, ako to je, potom logicky vyplýva, že: Boh to tak, že Biblia máme dnes by čítal ako to robí, foreknowing časy, v ktorom žijeme a čo by to bolo. Boh predzvedel svoje deti, ktorí by žiť v tejto dobe, a čo by to bolo, a ako by si myslel. Byť nekonečne inteligentný, foreknowing všetko, bol Boh si vybral každé slovo (atď.) z Biblie je ako to je, od kedy to bolo napísané, výber sa informovanosti o tom, ako by si dnes foreknowing nás.

Boh úmyselne navrhnutý Bibliu čítať, ako to robí, inšpiruje ľudí, ktorí písali, že napísať presne to, čo oni napísať. Biblia obsahuje osobitné vedomie, že Boh zámerne navrhnutý proroctvo čítať presne tak, ako to robí, sa každé slovo, inšpirujúca muža hovoriť určité slová, ktoré potom boli napísané.

Preto: Boh s nesmiernou inteligenciou a bez limitujúcich faktorov, keby chcel, mohol ovládať a úmyselne navrhnutý Bibliu tak, aby sa uistili, že konkrétnu správu proroctvo, o ešte-to-prišiel budúcnosti, dostal k nám (foreknowing čo by to bolo) v tejto dobe, a to tak, tak, aby sme mohli prijať to s reálnou istotou, kostol je ako to je teraz.

Biblia je nadprirodzene interaktívne, a bol úmyselne navrhnutý tak, aby interaktívne, s úmyselne navrhnutý človeka, úmyselne navrhnutý vesmíru, v silnej nadprirodzeným spôsobom, a to aj znamená pre naše obmedzené použitie týmto spôsobom. Boh má pre účely úmyselné Biblie, ktoré sú nadprirodzene interaktívne.

Preto: Boh mohol uistiť, že v logike a uvažovania niekto mohol vidieť, je zdravé, že tí s darom proroctva v tejto dobe mohli počuť od Boha o čoskoro-k-prísť budúcnosť, a pochopiť, Revelation, iba prostredníctvom interakcie s Biblia a Boh s ohľadom na poznatky a zdroje Boh predzvedel by byť k dispozícii v tejto dobe.

Boh je individuálny, rovnako ako každý z nás má, a má jedinečnú osobnosť alebo štýl, ako každý z nás urobiť. Ježiš Kristus je sám "značka" začiatok a koniec, tvorca tiež, a Syn Boží, preklenutie priepasti medzi večného Boha a nás lineárny výtvory viazaný na vytvorené dimenziu času. Biblia sa odkazuje na Ježiša Krista ako Word, Word stal telom, písma sa telom.

Preto: Keď Ježiš je individuálna, s jedinečným štýlom či osobnosti, a On je Boh, a On je Slovo sa stalo telom, logicky vyplýva, že Ježiš je Biblia tak - a to spôsobom, je najlepšie opísať ako Ježiš bol designer / autor / producent celej Biblii. Ak je celá Biblia má jedného muža za to, kto je Boh, Ježiš Kristus, potom logicky vyplýva, že potom (rovnako ako u každého človeka ako autora) Celá Biblia bude odrážať jedinečnú osobnosť, písacie štýl, Ježiša Krista.

Biblia učí, že Boh určený na svete byť tak, že budeme učiť o Ňom, a dozvedieť sa pravdu o Ňom, skrze to, čo je "Self-Dôkazné", a tiež prostredníctvom "symbolizmu a symbolických náhrad", a že by sme učiť sa, prosím ho, naučiť sa riadiť jeho cestách počúvať ho a ukázať poslušnosť k Nemu, v praxi to, čo je ako "Self-Dôkazné" a tiež prostredníctvom "symbolizmu a symbolických náhrad".

Preto: Ak Ježiš Kristus úmyselne navrhnutý celý svet, že takým spôsobom, že budeme učiť o Ňom skrze to, čo je "Self-Dôkazné" a "Symbolizmus a symbolické náhrady", mohlo by to byť považované Ježišov spôsob výučby nám veci. Ak to je Ježiš Kristus je spôsob, ako robiť veci, potom ako Ježiš Kristus tiež navrhol celú Bibliu, ako je, potom to logicky vyplýva, že Biblia by tiež byť navrhnuté tak, aby nás učil metódou, čo je "Self-Dôkazné" a pomocou " symbolizmus a symbolické náhrady ".

Boží zámerne vybrané konkrétne slová sú pravdivé, a Boh chce, aby sme sa držať Jeho zámerne vybraných konkrétnych slov.

Preto: Musíme sa nepoužíva sčítanie ani vziať. Musíme ani pridať ďalší význam ako slová poctivo premýšľať, ani ignorovať význam, ktorý je tam, že slová úprimne odrážajú. "Boh povedal?" Je najstarší trik pokušenia, čo vedie k hriechu, vo svätej Biblii. Musíme veriť, že naše nekonečne-inteligentný, všemohúci, vševediaci, foreknowing, večný, milovať Boha a Spasiteľa, povedal presne, čo znamená, a znamenala presne to, čo povedal k inému účelu - pre túto generáciu v týchto časoch, even a purpose He had for you or me in particular, who were foreknown to Him from before He made the world – that He had in mind thousands of years ago when He chose just how to inspire Moses, or Ezekiel, etc. to write – foreknowing what would result in your or my hands today – and with infinite intelligence chose to interact precisely as was needed then, to result for us to have the truth of the Holy Bible in our hands today.

The Bible is Truth and Holy.

Section 2: The Holy Bible on Prophecy and Wisdom

Hypothesis: “Wisdom” is needed to understand prophecy.

The Bible connects the concepts of prophecy, riddles, and wisdom. God said that what He spoke to the prophets were riddles, and the same word is used to describe a common riddle.

Num 12:6-8 And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, [I] the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, [and] will speak unto him in a dream. My servant Moses [is] not so, who [is] faithful in all mine house. With him I speak face to face, clearly and not in riddles ; he sees the form of the LORD. Why then were you not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?

Jdg 14:12-14 Samson povedal im, sa teraz navrhol hádanku vám: ak budete celkom určite vyhlásiť ju za mňa do siedmich dní od sviatku, a nájsť [to] von, potom ti dám tridsať listov a tridsať zmena odevov Ale ak nemožno deklarovať [to] som ja, sa potom dáte mi tridsať a tridsať listov zmenu odevov. A oni mu povedali, vystrel svoju hádanku, že môžeme počuť. A on im povedal: "Z jedáka vyšiel mäso a zo silného vyšla sladkosť." A nemohli v troch dňoch objasniť záhadu.

Na jednom mieste Boh dáva proroctvo uvedené, že sa puzzle, Eze 17, rovnaké slovo, ako je uvedené vyššie. Čo je veľmi dôležité si uvedomiť, o tejto pasáži je to, že zadaný "hádanku" proroctvo je rovnako nejasný, temný a puzzle znejúce, plný symboliky, ako zvyšok proroctva v biblii. Že takmer všetky proroctvá má hádanky-tón k nej vágne, plné symboliky, je ťažké poprieť. Dokonca aj pasáže, ktoré obsahujú interpretácia zostávala veľa to je len nejasne vysvetlené.

Eze 17:1-5 A stalo sa slovo Hospodinovo ku mne povediac: Syn človeka, navrhol hádanku, a hovorí podobenstvo domu Izraela a povedz: Toto hovorí Pán, Jahve "veľký orla s veľkými krídlami, longwinged, plná peria, ktoré mali potápačov farby, prišiel k Libanonu, a vzal na najvyšší konár cédru, On ostrihané z vrcholu svojich mladých vetvičiek, a odniesol ju do zeme traffick, postavil ju v meste obchodníkov. Vzal tiež z semena krajiny, a zasadil ju do plodné pole, sa umiestnil na [to] veľkými vodami, [a] nastaviť [ako] vŕba .... "

Múdry boli tí, ktorí boli myšlienka byť schopní vysvetliť, hádanky, ako Šalamún známy pre jeho múdrosť bola testovaná s hádaniek od kráľovnej zo Sáby.

2ch 9:1-2,6 A keď kráľovná zo Sáby počuli o sláve Solomona, prišla k Šalamúnovi sa dokázať, hádaniek v Jeruzaleme, s veľmi veľkým firmám, a ťavy nesúcimi korenie a zlato vo veľkom množstve, a drahé kamene, a keď prišla k Šalamúnovi, a hovorila s ním o všetko, čo bolo v srdci svojom. Šalamún povedal jej všetky jej otázky, a nič skrytého pred Šalamúna, ktorý by jej neodpovedal ... (Povedala) A však som veril, nie na ich slová, až som prišiel, a moje oči videl [to], a hľa, polovicu veľkosti tvojej múdrosti nebolo mi povedal: [pre] tie exceedest slávy, ktorý som počul.

Je jasné, že Biblia ukazuje, že k pochopeniu hádanky človek potrebuje mať "múdrosť", a to je "múdry", ktorá pochopiť výklad alebo riešenie hádaniek. Ako Boh prehlasuje, že proroctvo je hádanky, má zmysel porozumieť proroctvo, ktoré potrebujete, "múdrosť".

Pr 1:5-6 múdry [man] počujú, a zvýši učenie a človek o porozumení k dosiahnutiu rozumné radí: Ak chcete porozumieť príslovia a interpretácie, slová múdrych, a ich hádanky.

ECC 08:01 Kto [je] ako múdreho muža []? a kto pozná výklad (roztok) na vec? Múdrosť človeka učiniť tvár zažiariť, a smelosť jeho tváre sa zmení.

Biblia uvádza, že Boh má tajomstvo a kožou veci, a táto tajomstvo niekedy môže byť hľadaný von, alebo sa rozhodne odhaliť je, na Jeho načasovanie a koho chce.

in a pavilion from the strife of tongues. PSA 31:19-20 [Oh] aký veľký [je] tvoj dobrotu, ktorú si zložil pre nich, ktorí sa bojí teba,! [Ktorý] si urobil pre nich, že dôvera v teba pred synmi ľudskými budeš skrývať v tajomstve tvojej prítomnosti z pýchy človeka, ty budeš držať ich tajne v pavilóne z bojov jazykov.

Pre 25: 2 [Je to] Božia sláva zakryť vec, ale česť kráľov [je], vyzvedať vec.

Luk 10:21 V tú hodinu Ježiš radoval sa v duchu, a povedal: Chválim ťa, Otče, Pán neba i zeme, že si skryl tieto veci pred múdrymi a rozumné, a zjavil si ich maličkým: aj tak, Otec, tak to vyzeralo dobre v tvojich očiach.

Kol 1:25 čoho som urobil minister, podľa oslobodenie Božej, ktorá je mi daná pre vás, plniť Božie slovo, [I] záhadou, čo bolo skryté pred vekových skupín a generácií, ale teraz je zjavené jeho svätým:

Ef 3:09 A aby všetci [ľudia], čo [je] Společenstvo tajomstvo, ktoré od počiatku jest svet bol ukryl v Boha, ktorý stvoril všetko skrze Ježiša Krista:

Deu 29:29 Tajomstvo [veci patrí] k Pánovi, Bohu nášmu, ale tie veci, ktoré sú [] ukázal [patrí] k nám a našim deťom na veky, že [sme] môže všetky slová tohto zákona.

PSA 25:14 Tajomstvo Hospodinovo [je] s tými, kto sa ho bojí, a on ukázal im svoju zmluvu.

Jdg 13:18 A anjel Hospodinov riekol mu: Prečo pýtaš sa tak po mojom mene, vidieť, že [je] tajomstvo?

Rom 16:25-27 Teraz mu, že je moc vás posilní podľa môjho evanjelia a kázania Ježiša Krista, podľa zjavenia tajomstva, ktoré boli držané v tajnosti od počiatku sveta, ale teraz je zjavné , a písiem prorokov, podľa rozkazu večného Boha, dané na vedomie všetkým národom k poslušnosti viery: Ak chcete Boh múdry, [je] skrze Ježiša Krista sláva na veky. Amen.

Biblia tiež nadväzuje "tajomstvo" s "múdrosť" a proroctvo (a viera).

Job 15:8 si počul Tajomstvo (5475) Božie? a dosť thou brániť múdrosť sebe?

1 Kor 13:2 A keď mám [dar proroctva], a pochopiť všetky   záhady ods tajomstvo) a všetky vedomosti, a keď mám všetku vieru, takže by som hory prenášal, ale lásku a majú, nie som nič.

Amos 3:7 iste Pán Hospodin nerobí nič bez toho, aby zjavil svoje tajomstvo ods 5475) svojim sluhom prorokom.

Tying this all together, the Bible indicates that the prophecies we have which God gave through the prophets, as we have them in the Bible, are riddles, or like riddles, and that these are also called secrets. In order to understand prophecies, riddles or secrets, a person needs something called “wisdom”. And the gift of prophecy relates to understanding these secrets, or riddles. Besides mentioning “wisdom” as important, the Bible also indicates that the “secret of the Lord” is with the “righteous” who “fear Him”.

Psa 25:14 The secret (5475) of the LORD [is] with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.

Pro 3:32 For the froward [is] abomination to the LORD: but His secret (5475) [is] with the righteous.

This correlation between wisdom, prophecy, riddles, interpretation of riddles, secrets and prophets is seen in the Old and New Testaments, and it serves as a foundation to understand that for certain prophecies, the prophecy itself in the Bible specifies we will need whatever it is that is called “wisdom” in order to understand the riddle of the prophecy. These verses serve as evidence of validity of the hypothesis.

Zj 13:18 Tu je múdrosť. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six.

Rev 17:9 And here [is] the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth…

Dan 12:10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

Validation of the Hypothesis: “Wisdom” is needed to understand (esp. certain) prophesies.

Section 3: The Holy Bible on Wisdom

What is “wisdom” per the Bible, and how does one get “wisdom” per the Bible?

The Holy Bible teaches we can ask in faith, nothing wavering, and God will give us wisdom. Therefore faith, trusting God, is a key ingredient of receiving wisdom, and it is God who gives wisdom.

James 1:5-7 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all [men] liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.

The Holy Bible teaches repeatedly that fear of the Lord is the “beginning of wisdom”. As this is the “beginning” of wisdom, this may relate to how we start to receive it from God. Also “knowledge of the Holy” and “departing from evil” seem to be related to this.

Prov 1:7 The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of knowledge: [but] fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Pro 9:10 The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy [is] understanding.

Job 28:28 And unto man He said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that [is]wisdom; and to depart from evil [is] understanding.

Psalm 111:10 The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do [his commandments]: his praise endureth for ever.

The Holy Bible gives much information on wisdom and how to get it, so including key passages, I am going to underline what seem to be key points:

Pro 1:2-7 To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding; To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity; To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion. A wise [man] will hear , and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels: To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings. The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of knowledge : [but] fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Prov 2:1-6 My son, if thou wilt receive my words , and hide my commandments with thee; So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, [and] apply thine heart to understanding; Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, [and] liftest up thy voice for understanding; If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as [for] hid treasures ; Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth [cometh] knowledge and understanding.

Prov 4:1-7 Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding. For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law . For I was my father's son, tender and only [beloved] in the sight of my mother. He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart retain my words : keep my commandments, and live. Get wisdom, get understanding: forget [it] not; neither decline from the words of my mouth . Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee. Wisdom [is] the principal thing; [therefore] get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

Prov 8:5-14 O ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart. Hear ; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips [shall be] right things. For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness [is] an abomination to my lips. All the words of my mouth [are] in righteousness; [there is] nothing froward or perverse in them. They [are] all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge. Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold. For wisdom [is] better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it. I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions. The fear of the LORD [is] to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth , do I hate. Counsel [is] mine, and sound wisdom: I [am] understanding; I have strength.

2 Tim 3:14-17 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned [them]; And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

Pro 14:6,8 A scorner seeketh wisdom, and [findeth it] not: but knowledge [is] easy unto him that understandeth. The wisdom of the prudent [is] to understand His way : but the folly of fools [is] deceit.

Job 26:3 How hast thou counselled [him that hath] no wisdom ? and [how] hast thou plentifully declared the thing as it is ?

Pro 17:24 Wisdom [is] before him that hath understanding ; but the eyes of a fool [are] in the ends of the earth.

Psa 19:7 The law of the LORD [is] perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD [is] sure, making wise the simple.

Pro 22:17 Bow down thine ear, and hear the words of the wise, and apply thine heart unto my knowledge.

Prov 30:2-6 Surely I [am] more brutish than [any] man, and have not the understanding of a man. I neither learned wisdom , nor have the knowledge of the holy . Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what [is] his name , and what [is] his son's name, if thou canst tell ? Every word of God [is] pure : he [is] a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Add thou not unto his words , lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

Let's look at just the highlighted points on what “wisdom” is and how to get it:

perceive the words , hear , The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of knowledge , receive my words , incline thine ear , searchest for her as [for] hid treasures , find the knowledge of God. For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth [cometh] knowledge and understanding, I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law , retain my words , forget [it] not; neither decline from the words of my mouth , Wisdom [is] the principal thing, for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips [shall be] right things. For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness [is] an abomination to my lips. All the words of my mouth [are] in righteousness; [there is] nothing froward or perverse in them. They [are] all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge, The fear of the LORD [is] to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth , do I hate. Counsel [is] mine, and sound wisdom: I [am] understanding; I have strength, And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus, knowledge [is] easy unto him that understandeth, understand His way , wisdom , declared the thing as it is , Wisdom [is] before him that hath understanding , The law of the LORD [is] perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD [is] sure, making wise the simple, Bow down thine ear, and hear the words , wisdom , knowledge of the holy , his name , Every word of God [is] pure : he [is] a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Add thou not unto his words , lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

The general impression is that to get “wisdom” we must neither add to nor take away from God's words, in fear of God, and that adding or taking away is evil, proud, and arrogant. If we add to them then we will be found to be liars. The Holy scriptures are God's words, which are all perfect, and right, and truth, and able to make us wise through faith in Jesus Christ. He gives good doctrine, counsel, and wisdom. Also, a search as for hidden treasures is recommended to get wisdom, yet at the same time, God's words are described to be plain, that getting knowledge is easy, and that God has declared the thing as it is. Repeatedly the instruction is to hear the words, bow the ear to them, to perceive them. Knowledge of the Holy, and understanding His way are mentioned as part of this. The main point seems to be that God gives wisdom with His perfect words, as found in the Holy Bible.

This is contrasted in Jer 8, showing that those who reject His Word do not have wisdom. This may also be echoed in Psalms, that going against the Lord, or His Word, there is no wisdom.

Jer 8:8-9 How do ye say, We [are] wise, and the law of the LORD [is] with us? Lo, certainly in vain made he [it]; the pen of the scribes [is] in vain. The wise [men] are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken: lo, they have rejected the word of the LORD; and what wisdom [is] in them?

Pro 21:30 [There is] no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the LORD.

Hypothesis: Whatever “wisdom” is, it is to be found in the Holy Bible, that one must search for it like hidden treasure, in faith. But that it is plain and easy, hearing God's perfect words, not adding to them or rejecting them, but hearing and perceiving them exactly as they are. He gives good doctrine, all His words are truth. And understanding of His way and knowledge of the Holy is also involved.

Biblical Principles of Getting Wisdom in This Age (Case Example of Hypothesis)

For us Christians, the Holy Bible teaches that in this age (of the Church/Gentiles) to become wise (per God, biblical wisdom), we must become fools (per the world, worldly wisdom). Alternately, worldly wisdom is foolishness.

1 Cor 3:18-23 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain. Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours; Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours; And ye are Christ's; and Christ [is] God's.

Young Earth Creationism seems to be a perfect example. The world considers it utter foolishness for people to open up a Bible and read what it plainly says and believe it – that God created the Universe in 6 days, about 6000 years ago. Yet, there is more scientific evidence for this, a young earth, the Flood, than for evolution. There is all sorts of scientific research by Christians who are scientists (see creation.com) which answer every science question anyone seems to have thought of, even on cosmology, with scientific and reasonable answers that show science allows for Young Earth Creationism to be true, even how it is that 6 days and 6000 years could pass here, while we seem to see longer time periods in space. And as a whole it actually makes more sense with the real scientific process, and the evidence that is observed (like the fossil record), than do the secular alternatives.

Evolutionists reject God's Word, and what is “Self-Evidential” about Creation, that we were created, that the Earth shows evidence of a Flood, etc. and as a result people have become vain in imaginations, believing things they or others have made up, not truth given in the Bible, and while evolutionists profess to be wise, in truth they are fools.

Rom 1:18-22 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed [it] unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made , [even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified [him] not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.

In fact, a child can sit and read the creation account in Genesis as plain and easy to understand, and in this have more wisdom than the most educated evolutionist. The Bible teaches that age and greatness do not mean that one has wisdom. Jesus praised God for hiding things from the wise (worldly wisdom) and revealing the truth to those who were just “babes”. This is indicative that receiving Biblical wisdom may relate to being childlike.

Job 32:9 Great men are not [always] wise: neither do the aged understand judgment.

Luke 10:21 In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes : even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.

Matt 18:3-4 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children , ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child , the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

Luke 18:16-17 But Jesus called them [unto him], and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdomof God. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdomof God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.

Being childlike may seem foolish to the world, and an adult reading and believing the Bible surely does seem foolish to the world. Yet a child who believes what he reads about creation is wiser in true wisdom, than an adult evolutionist thought wise in worldly wisdom. And also, an adult Christian who believes what he reads is wiser in true wisdom, than one who does not. Wisdom does seem to be in plain sight in this regard. It may seem foolish of God to have hid the truth giving wisdom in plain sight, but the foolishness of God is in fact wiser than man, who in all worldly wisdom cannot figure out what is already openly told and in plain sight.

1 Cor 1… For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where [is] the wise? where [is] the scribe? where [is] the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, [yea], and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence. But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

The Bible also makes clear that it is the Holy Spirit in us that teaches us and reveals things to us, and gives us wisdom, and these things are contrary to worldly wisdom which regards them as foolishness. The Holy Spirit teaches us by comparing spiritual things with spiritual – we have the mind of Christ, and so can understand His thoughts. This may be relevant in the Holy Spirit interacting with the Holy Bible, comparing Spiritual with Spiritual, to give true wisdom, especially seeing the Holy Bible as being designed by Jesus Christ, and Him being the Word made flesh.

1 Cor 2:6-16 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, [even] the hidden [wisdom], which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known [it], they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed [them] unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God . Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [them], because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man . For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

Conclusion – Validity of Hypothesis: Whatever “wisdom” is, it is to be found in the Holy Bible, that one must search for it like hidden treasure, in faith. But that it is plain and easy, hearing God's perfect words, not adding to them or rejecting them, but hearing and perceiving them exactly as they are. He gives good doctrine, all His words are truth. And understanding of His way, and knowledge of the Holy, is also involved.

So where do we go from here in the search for getting “wisdom”? We are told to search for it as for hidden treasure, it is to be found in God's Word, in His words, but is it everywhere or is it in a particular location? Usually hidden treasure has a specific location, and there is a map or instructions on where to go to find it. Just as a hunch, the phrase “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom” or other mention of “beginning” in relation to wisdom, is used very often (Ps 111:10, Prov 1:7,4:7,8:22,9:10). In 4 instances, this is the same word as in Gen 1:1 “In the beginning”, and so this might be a hint to head to Genesis. It also is interesting that a couple other verses use the same words for “beginning”:

Isa 46:10 Declaring the end from the beginning , and from ancient times [the things] that are not [yet] done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

God says He declares the end from the beginning – the beginning of the Bible is Genesis and the end is Revelation – so perhaps the “wisdom” needed to understand Revelation might be found in Genesis.

Ecc 10:13 The beginning of the words of his mouth [is] foolishness: and the end of his talk [is] mischievous madness.

We've already established that to the world, Genesis seems to be foolishness, and also to the world, “mischievous madness” might be a fitting description of how they see Revelation. So this verse may be some written confirmation in the Holy Bible of God foreknowing the order the books would be in one day, also again hinting there may be some tie between Genesis and Revelation.

Section 4: God's Writing Style – “His Way”

I would like you to see this. Please go get and open up a hardcopy Bible to Genesis 1, to use to follow along with, as I believe it works better to process this information with it all laid out visually.

In Genesis the Lord seems to first lay out information in chronological order. So the baseline or precedent is for God to write in chronological order. That is, until we get to Gen 2, which seems to recount events that were already described in Gen 1.

Some people have a hard time reconciling Gen 1 and Gen 2, which seem to give account of the creation of mankind twice. Adam and Eve were the first man and woman, and so Gen 1 and Gen 2 must be speaking of the same event, the creation of mankind. Logically, for the Bible to not contradict itself, the creation account of mankind in Gen 2 must reconcile with the one in Gen 1.

But they are easily reconciled. Look at the section of Gen 1:1 through 2:4. This is all one section, which gives account of the creation week, and ends in 2:4 by summarizing the prior, saying:

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.

Gen 2:5 begins the next section, verse 5 including that “there was no man to cultivate the ground” . This is a marker, showing that verse 5 has gone backwards in time, to before man was made. Gen 2:5 through Gen 2:25, the end of the chapter, give account of the creation of mankind. So we can know that Gen 2:5-25 is a more detailed account of the events that already were mentioned on day 6 in Genesis chapter 1. Genesis 1:26 is before God has made mankind, 1:27 is the verse where God makes mankind, and this is followed by God blessing them, in which God is speaking to both of them, together.

Gen 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Gen 1:27 So God created man in his [own] image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

Gen 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them , Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth….

Gen 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.

Gen 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.

Gen 1:31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, [it was] very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

At the end of Gen 2:25 Adam and Eve have just been brought together, but God has not said anything to both of them together. Gen 2:5-25 begins before the creation of Adam, and ends with Adam and Eve just having been brought together, with no mention of God talking to both of them, and Gen 1:28 includes God speaking to both of them together. So it seems to make the most sense, in fitting the sections together, that Gen 2:5-25 is in fact a more detailed account of what is briefly summarized in Gen 1:27. It is therefore “Self-Evidential” that Gen 1:1-2:4 is a summary, and Gen 2:5-2:25 is a more detailed account of a small piece of that summary. As we have already covered, God's teaching style He used in how He made the world is “Self-Evidential”.

Now, Jesus COULD have just put all this in chronological order, and perhaps made it easier to understand. As it stands, at first glance it looks like there could be some contradiction – and it takes a little bit of faith, trusting Jesus to not contradict Himself, and thinking about it, comparing sections, to arrive at the conclusion that there is no contradiction.

Still Jesus COULD have just put all this in chronological order. Why didn't He? What did He do? (Cryptographically oriented minds want to know…)

First Jesus gave a summary in chronological order of the creation week. Then He went back and gave more detail on something we would find of particular interest – the creation of mankind.

It seems “Self-Evidential” that Jesus wanted us to learn something from how He chose to lay out this information, and that is that doing it this way is just “His Way”, or “His Writing Style”. Why assume that an all-knowing infinitely intelligent all-powerful eternal God would allow for His Word to end up with chronological breaks that make understanding more difficult just by happenstance, when the attributes of God are logically more compatible with such chronological breaks and resulting contextual understanding difficulties to be intentional and for a purpose? (Isa 29:16 “Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter's clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?” )

In other words, right from the beginning of the Bible, it seems Jesus is teaching us about His Writing Style, How He likes to do things, “His Way” – Jesus is not just teaching us about our creation as is the content of the topic of this section, but He is also teaching us how to read the Bible with understanding, knowing His Way of laying out the information, as a rule or guideline.

This is an especially important rule for us to know when it comes to passages of the Bible which are obscure and confusing as to the events described…. such as… Prophecy! This is essentially the first “Self-Evidential” example of “His Way” that He lays out information, that might be very useful in trying to solve a riddle.

His Way #1: Jesus likes to give chronological summaries, and then go back and fill in important details. Even 20 verses of details might be expanded out from just 1 verse of summary. The markers between such sections may require a little logic, and have to be deduced from context.

Now, does this match the Biblically derived hypothesis about “wisdom”?

Hypothesis: Whatever “wisdom” is, it is to be found in the Holy Bible, that one must search for it like hidden treasure, in faith. But that it is plain and easy, hearing God's perfect words, not adding to them or rejecting them, but hearing and perceiving them exactly as they are. He gives good doctrine, all His words are truth. And understanding of His way, and knowledge of the Holy, is also involved.

Hypothesis-Match: This is from the Holy Bible, taking into account the Holy Bible is meant to be interactive, trusting in God's words as being perfect as they are, every single one, including how they comprise whole sections. It requires searching for something hidden, yet everything is plain and out in the open. And a good doctrine (teaching, insight) of His Way is the result.

Poďme k ďalšiemu príkladu. Gen 3 – 5 keeps a fairly steady chronological order. The end of Gen 4 brings us up to just past the beginning of Gen 5, with the birth of Seth, and so the overlap is minimal. But there is something to note comparing Genesis 3 and 4, which is that something is obviously missing from the story. From context it is pretty obvious that Cain's wife, first mentioned in Gen 4:17, must have been his sister, and a daughter of Adam, yet nowhere prior in Gen 4 is it mentioned that Adam and Eve had any daughters. From Gen 4:17 onward, several women are mentioned, presumably they could be daughters of Cain. But it really sticks out that the first time any daughters are mentioned as being born to anyone, including Adam, is not until after Adam is over 130 years old and has fathered Seth. After fathering Seth, in Gen 5:4, it is finally mentioned that Adam had daughters. So from context, using a little logic, there is a very big pointed obvious omission in Gen 4, where Adam having daughters should be mentioned, but it is not. Obviously in Gen 5:4 God mentions that Adam had daughters, so it is not like the reason for not mentioning them was because God just was not going to mention them. But in context, in the chronology the daughters should have been mentioned sooner. In a way, this is an empty blank ____ to be filled.

But still, Gen 3-5 does continue in close chronological order, until we get to Gen 6.

“And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them That the sons of God saw the daughters of men(adam) that they [were] fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also [is] flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. 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.”

This verse specifies that these events occurred at a particular time – when men began to multiply and had daughters. From context, it is very obvious that men began to multiply and have daughters prior to when Adam was 130 years old, and this started with Adam having daughters as that had to be where Cain's wife came from (6:2 daughters of men(adam)). This is the information that goes in the blank___ of what was so obviously missing prior to the first mention of Cain's wife in Gen 4:17. So when did the sons of God start taking wives? Before Gen 4:17, before Adam was 130 years old, as that is when he had Seth, and it is specified that Cain already had a wife and 4 generations of descendents by then. When were there giants on the earth? In “those days” of prior to when Adam was 130, and also after that. This being established, then the chronology continues on with Gen 6:5 and so on into the Flood account.

So, Jesus COULD have just put Gen 6:1-4 sometime prior to Gen 4:17, where it would have fit into chronological order – but instead left a glaringly obvious logical contextual blank___ where Gen 6:1-4 should have fit chronologically.

Why did He do it this way? What we can learn from this is that all of Gen 5, the generations of Adam through Noah's sons, a summary of a genealogy spanning 1500 years, is then followed by a brief detail of an occurrence (parallel of a second genealogy) which overlays the same time period of 1500 years. We have a notable _____, followed by 1500 years, followed by a brief summary of something that was also occurring over the expanse of those 1500 years, which fits into that contextual blank___. It makes sense that the cause of the flood was largely due to the Nephilim. So it seems like Gen 6:1-4 was cut from prior to Gen 4:17, and moved to after the end of Gen 5, so as to highlight how these events related to the flood – to emphasize a cause and effect or spiritual significance, over more obvious contextual details (missing daughters) that could be more easily logically deduced.

What can we learn from this? I'm going to divide this one up into two:

His Way #2: Jesus will put things in non-chronological order, to show the importance of a cause/effect relationship or spiritual significance to something that follows, however if He does so there is an earlier marker of omission that can be derived from context, a beginning, which is later filled in, an ending.

His Way #3: Events of good and evil running parallel over time may be overlaid, with one detailed and the other only receiving a summary, and this may be derived from contextual markers.

Continuing on, the next serious chronological break is Gen 11:1-9. This is the same pattern as the chronological break between Gen 1 and Gen 2, but a little different. Gen 11:1-9 obviously refers back to Nimrod'skingdomofBabelin Gen 10:10, and so this is the starting point. However, in the example of Gen 1 and Gen 2, there were 20 verses detailing 1 verse. But in this case, Gen 11:1-9 starts with Gen 10:10, and the obvious context clue of “the beginning of his kingdom wasBabel”. The ending point is also to be derived from a context clue, found in Gen 10:25 “Peleg for in his days the earth was divided”. There seems to be good reason for this, because Gen 11:10 onwards is a years-detailed genealogy of Shem's line, giving us details on the days of Peleg. From that, we can know the Earth was divided about 1757-1996 years after the creation. (Incidentally, as per Deut 32:8 LXX, that would also mean this is when the “Divine Council” was first formed; after Babel.)

What can we learn from this? This is a combination of earlier examples. In this case of Gen 10 and 11, more detailed information is given on an earlier chronological summary (His Way #1), but it is written in such a way that it overlays a longer period of time (His Way #3) and markers are given for the beginning and end (His Way #2).

And so we can understand from this that His Ways may be combined. This fourth example seems to affirm His Ways shown earlier, but without providing a new pattern. However, it does give the knowledge that parts of His Ways can be mixed together into new combinations.

After this example, Genesis seems to continue in chronological order, without any significant exceptions, and so this seems to be the end of the series of “Self-Evidential” teaching about how Jesus lays out information.

Let's Review,

What Jesus teaches in a “Self-Evidential” manner in Genesis:

The baseline or precedent is for Jesus to write in chronological order. But there are 3 exceptions:

His Way #1: Jesus likes to give chronological summaries, and then go back and fill in important details. Even 20 verses of details might be expanded out from just 1 verse of summary. The markers between such sections may require a little logic, and have to be deduced from context.

His Way #2: Jesus will put things in non-chronological order, to show the importance of a cause/effect relationship or spiritual significance to something that follows, however if He does so there is an earlier marker of omission that can be derived from context, a beginning, which is later filled in, an ending.

His Way #3: Events of good and evil running parallel over time may be overlaid, with one detailed and the other only receiving a summary, and this may be derived from contextual markers.

The elements of these 3 exceptions can be mixed together to make new combinations, such as: More detailed information is given on an earlier chronological summary (His Way #1), but it is written in such a way that it overlays a longer period of time (His Way #3), and markers are given for the beginning and end (His Way #2).

Is this “wisdom”? It matches the hypothesis about “wisdom”:

Hypothesis: Whatever “wisdom” is, it is to be found in the Holy Bible, that one must search for it like hidden treasure, in faith. But that it is plain and easy, hearing God's perfect words, not adding to them or rejecting them, but hearing and perceiving them exactly as they are. He gives good doctrine, all His words are truth. And understanding of His way, and knowledge of the Holy, is also involved.

Hypothesis-Match: This is from the Holy Bible, taking into account the Holy Bible is meant to be interactive, trusting in God's words as being perfect as they are, every single one, including how they comprise whole sections. It requires searching for something hidden, yet everything is plain and out in the open. And a good doctrine (teaching, insight) of His Way is the result.

Is there any further validation that this is “wisdom”, or any evidence to confirm it?

We covered 3 topics in His breaks from chronology:

  1. Adam and Eve's creation and God's instructions to them
  2. The timing of sons of God and the Nephilim
  3. The timing of Babel, and incidentally when the “Divine Council” was formed

Example 2: While some people are aware of the Gen 6 paradigm today, most of them do not understand “and also after that” correctly, and false beliefs have resulted. By using this methodology, it becomes clear when the interbreeding started, and shows that “and also after that” refers from the time of Adam through Noah, and not to after the flood. Several people have pointed out that “and also after that” simply makes no sense to be referring to after the Flood, using logic, grammar, reasoning, precedents, etc. to make this point. But using the methodology of perceiving His Ways, the same conclusion is arrived at, but the information seems to be laid out plainly and openly. God's words are assumed to be intentional, and contextual difficulties are also there for an intentional purpose, to teach of His way of laying out information. To many people, the correct information is hidden and they do not understand it – yet using His Ways the correct information is revealed. Summarily, it is as if a “secret” has been revealed, a “mystery” is understood. The Holy Bible ties together the ideas of “secrets” and “wisdom” and “prophecy”.

Job 15:8 Hast thou heard the secret (5475) of God? and dost thou restrain wisdom to thyself?

1 Cor 13:2 And though I have [the gift of] prophecy , and understand all   mysteries (secrets) , and all knowledge; and though I have all faith , so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

Amos 3:7 Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth His secret (5475) unto his servants the prophets .

That using the His Way methodology seems to give understanding about “secrets” or “mysteries”. It quickly lays out conclusions in plain sight, that otherwise would require more difficult efforts to arrive at. This is self-evidential evidence that the His Way methodology does successfully reveal “mysteries” or “secrets”, which is what the Bible teaches that comes with having “wisdom”.

As such, there is Evidence that the His Way methodology involves the presence of some “wisdom”, even indicating this is the same “wisdom” needed to understand certain prophecies. It seems there is some Biblical and Bible-based evidence that we have gained “wisdom” by understanding “His Ways”. Eureka!

((Notes: I do believe there are additional “secrets” that are pointed to and revealed in Example 1, as to more detail about the Fall of mankind, which I have written on, but it is a very complicated subject, requiring many other proofs spanning the entire Bible to confirm, so it won't easily work as Evidence here. The key issue is resolving the contradiction of God directly telling Eve that she could east from “every tree” in Gen 1:29, which when taking into account singular/plurals of “you” in Gen 2-3, can be resolved, and gives new insight on how the serpent “deceived/beguiled” Eve, not just lied to her. That study is online in Chapters 8-12 here: http://walkintruth.net/

As for Example 3, there is at least the point as to the timing of the institution of the Divine Council, it seems Deut 32:8 clearly is referring to the days of Peleg, post-Babel, as to when the earth was divided and the Divine Council was formed. But that also is neither here nor there, not able to serve as Evidence of a “secret” revealed – though there is probably still more to this passage.

Deut 32:8 When the most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the sons of God.

Gen 10:25 And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one [was] Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided ; and his brother's name [was] Joktan.

Gen 11:9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth. ))

What we have done here is to trust the Bible, down to every word, to such a great extent, believing every word to be purposed intentionally by God, making note that He did everything for a good reason, that we have noted a second dimension or layer of information in Genesis. The first layer of information is the topical content. The second layer of information is this His Way methodology. This His Way methodology is backed up by Biblical Evidence and Self-Evidential Evidence to contain Biblical “wisdom”, in that it reveals Self-Evident “secrets” about the topical content of the first layer.

It seems we are on the right track, and have gained some “wisdom”, enough to have Evidence of a “secret” revealed, better understanding a “mystery”. And it is easy to understand that the His Way methodology could serve as a useful guideline for understanding prophecies, which might also contain chronology breaks, which could be all the more confusing in a passage full of symbolism (and as many people have noted prophecies do seem to include chronology breaks).

As we seem to be heading in the right direction, finding a second layer of information, let's see if there is a 3 rd layer of information in Genesis. As we are looking for “wisdom” enough to understand prophesies, and as there are some prophecies in Genesis, let's look there next, to see if Jesus may have put a 3 rd layer of teaching in Genesis, to teach us more about prophecy in particular.

Section 6: Understanding Symbolism and Functions of Prophecy

This first prophecy given in the Bible in Genesis is Gen 3:15:

And I will put enmity between you and the woman,

And between your seed and her seed;

He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel.

Of course, we know off the top of our heads that “He” here is Jesus Christ, as this is well known to be the first prophecy of the Messiah. But starting from scratch, as if we did not know this, let's look through the rest of the Bible to figure this prophecy out. There are words here that seem symbolic and vague. Who is the “woman”? Who is “He”? What does this mean by “seed”? What does “bruise” mean? Etc.

#4 Look at the rest of the Bible to figure out symbolism.

First, this prophecy was spoken by God about the specific woman Eve. It seems likely that Eve hated the serpent, and the serpent hated her, which would be the most immediate meaning. Then, in the next chapter we read of how she had 2 sons, Cain and Abel, and Cain killed Abel so there was obviously enmity between them. What does the Bible say about them?

Gen 4:1 And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain , and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.

Gen 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 .

Gen 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, whom Cain slew.

1 Jn 3:12 Not as Cain, [who] was of that wicked one , and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous.

Luke 11:50-51 That the blood of all the prophets , which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation; From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation.

The Bible defines Cain to have been “of that wicked one”, but to have been fathered by Adam. As such we can understand that Cain was “of that wicked one” in a spiritual sense. Abel was a righteous prophet, and said to be the “seed” of Eve – but of course both Cain and Abel were the “seed” of Eve in a physical sense. And so Abel was the “seed of the woman” in a spiritual sense, by process of elimination. And there was both enmity between Cain and Abel in a spiritual sense, as Cain was evil and Abel was righteous – and enmity between Cain and Abel in a physical sense as Cain physically killed Abel.

“And I will put enmity between you and the woman” had an immediate literal meaning, and a spiritual meaning. “And between your seed and her seed” after some years, soon also had a literal meaning, and a spiritual meaning. However, “He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel” was not fulfilled literally or spiritually at this time by anyone.

The question might arise as to whether Cain and Abel did in fact fulfill this prophecy. The Bible verifies that Cain was “of that wicked one”. That is what the Bible says. This cannot mean in a physical sense as Adam was Cain's father physically, so Cain therefore was spiritually the “seed” of the “serpent”. But Abel was a “righteous prophet” and so was spiritually of the “seed” of the “woman”, as well as literally being the “seed” of the “woman” Eve.

Does the description of what happened between Cain and Able match the symbolism of:

“And I will put enmity between you(literal serpent) and the woman(literal Eve), And between your seed(Cain spiritually) and her seed(Abel spiritually and literally)”?

Yes, the symbolism described in the prophecy matches the events that happened. It is Self-Evidential that this prophecy matches the events that happened. Taking it at face value, the Bible confirms that a spiritual fulfillment of this took place by stating Cain was “of that wicked one”, and that both spiritually, as Abel was righteous and Cain evil, that there was enmity between them, and also literally there was enmity between Cain and Abel as Cain slew Abel. We also can see that Eve and the serpent immediately had enmity between them, but the prophecy of enmity between the “seed”, between Cain and Abel, took years before it was fulfilled, in the future.

Does what happened match the symbolism of the prophecy? Áno. So was this a fulfillment of the prophecy? Áno. That is Self-Evidential. But, it is also clear that “He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel” did not take place at this time. This means that while part of the prophecy was fulfilled, part of it was not fulfilled at all. From this information we can learn:

#5 Prophecies may have both a literal and/or spiritual fulfillment

#6 Prophecies may be fulfilled in stages, some parts immediately, some in the near future, while the rest waits to be fulfilled in the far future.

Let's jump to the fulfillment of “He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel” .

According to Revelation, the serpent must be Satan:

Rev 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent , called the Devil, and Satan , which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

The woman's seed must be Christ,

Rev 12:5 And she brought forth a man child , who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and [to] his throne.

And the rest of her seed are God's people:

Rev 12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed , which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

From this we know that “He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel” actually means “Jesus shall 'bruise' Satan's 'head', and Satan shall 'bruise' Jesus' 'heel'”. But the terms “bruise”, “head”, and “heel” are still not defined. When is this prophecy fulfilled?

Jesus died on the cross, but then rose to life again, and through this gained victory over Satan, or in other words, Jesus bruised Satan's head, but Satan only bruised Jesus' heel. Is this the fulfillment of the prophecy?

Hbr 2:14-15 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same ; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil ; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

1Jo 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

Col2:15 [And] having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

Also, arguably Revelation 12 tells that after the birth of Jesus, and Him being caught up to God's throne, that there was a war in heaven, and Satan was cast down to earth. I would place this to also be a result of Jesus' resurrection and ascension, and just after that time. But whatever the timing, it is an example of, Jesus shall bruise Satan's head, but Satan shall only bruise Jesus' heel.

Rev 12:5-9 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and [to] his throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred [and] threescore days. And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

Right now in the Church age, we are the body of Christ. Satan attacks us, and will all the more, but the injuries are minor in comparison to when Christ will return, and throw Satan down into the Abyss for 1000 years. This is another example of, Jesus shall bruise Satan's head, but Satan shall only bruise Jesus' heel. Is this the fulfillment of the prophecy?

Rev 20:2-3 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.

At the end of the millennial reign Satan will be loosed and deceive the nations, who are under Christ's rule in His kingdom, and they will turn against Christ, and be killed. So this is a loss of some of the Lord's subjects in His kingdom. But then, Satan will be cast into the lake of fire. This is another example of, Jesus shall bruise Satan's head, but Satan shall only bruise Jesus' heel, and the final one.

And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom [is] as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet [are], and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

The question is, which event is describable as 'Jesus shall bruise Satan's head, but Satan shall only bruise Jesus' heel'? They all are. Which is THE fulfillment of this prophecy? Is the REAL fulfillment when Jesus sends Satan to the lake of fire forever? No, that cannot be the case because it is True and Self-Evidential that all of these events match the symbolism of the prophecy.

“He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel” matches:

1. Jesus resurrects and triumphs over Satan, (after) Satan kills Jesus

2. Jesus begins to Reign with His people and sends Satan to the Abyss for 1000 years, (after) Satan kills Jesus' people (who then are resurrected)

3. Jesus sends Satan to the lake of fire forever, (after) Satan gets killed some of Jesus' subjects

Which event matches the words of the prophecy? They all do. All of these events match the symbolism of the prophecy, the words of the prophecy, as it is written, word by word, with the obvious meaning of the words. It is Self-Evidential that all three of these instances of direct conflict between Jesus and Satan match this prophecy. Are these real conflicts between Satan and Jesus? Áno. Do they match the symbolism of the prophecy? Áno. Equally? Áno. So are they all real equal fulfillments of the prophecy? Áno!

So which one is “the” fulfillment? They ALL are fulfillments. They are ALL REAL fulfillments of the prophecy as it was given, word by word, with the clear intended meaning of the prophecy.

The final fulfillment of the prophecy is the final fulfillment, but it is not the only one that matches the words of the prophecy – they all match the symbolism equally well – nor is the final victory more “real” somehow than the other very real victories of Jesus Christ over Satan. As such,

#7 Prophecies can be cyclic, and are equally valid and real fulfillments in every fulfillment.

Going back, we can see that the “seed” of the “serpent” and “woman” have been in conflict throughout history, and this has been fulfilled continuously in various spiritual and literal ways.

1. The serpent and Cain, vs. Eve and Abel (“which keep the commandments of God” Rev 12:17)

2. The sinning angels and Nephilim, vs. “the woman” and Noah's line (“which keep the commandments of God” Rev 12:17)

(Incidentally, there is a theory, not well-developed yet, that in a pre-incarnate appearance of Jesus, it was Jesus personally who imprisoned the sons of God into the Abyss at the time of the Flood. There are a few (howbeit obscure) verses that may point to this.)

3. The Divine Council and nations and Rephaim, vs. “Israel” and her people (“which keep the commandments of God” Rev 12:17)

4. Satan, the (fallen) Divine Council, demons, non-Christians, vs. Jesus and His Church (“which keep the commandments of God…have the testimony of Jesus Christ” Rev 12:17)

5. Satan vs. Jesus

The words of Rev 12:17 “which keep the commandments of God” in fact match and define the “seed” of the “woman” as confirmation of all of the pre-Christian historical meanings of fulfillment of the “seed” of “the woman”, from Abel to Israel. And also as such the words of the prophecy “seed”, “woman”, also “bruise” have had various meanings.

“seed of the serpent” = snake, fallen angels, Nephilim, evil people, Satan

“seed of the woman” = Abel, Noah's line, Israelites, Christians

“bruise” = kill, hurt Body of, deceive and get killed subject of, OR break power of, cast to earth, cast into prison of Abyss, cast into lake of fire

And also the words “head” and “heel” have also had various particular meanings in their technical fulfillments, but the point of these terms is that the same symbolic comparative difference, what the words show, in importance between an injury to the head vs. an injury to the heel has remained the same.

#8 In cyclic prophecies, the same words can have different meanings in different fulfillments, but the relative symbolism of comparisons or actions represented between words is the same.

This prophecy, given after sin began, will end when sin is finished, and has been fulfilled in some way continuously, and will be, for almost all of linear time. It is sort of like a fractal, stretching over the world, and all time, of categorized groups, repeating the pattern of Good vs. Evil. This prophecy started being fulfilled shortly after it was given, maybe with enmity between Eve and the Serpent, but definitely fulfillment was shown about the future with the enmity between Can and Abel – and since the first part of this prophecy was fulfilled the first time, this prophecy has continued to be fulfilled in various ways, and will continue to be fulfilled in various ways, until it has all been fulfilled, and can be fulfilled no longer. As such,

#9 Once a cyclic prophecy has begun and started to be fulfilled in part, it can continue to be fulfilled in various ways, until it is all fulfilled and can be fulfilled no more – like a fractal.

It is as is spoken of in Ecclesiastes 1:9-11, “The thing that hath been, it [is that] which shall be; and that which is done [is] that which shall be done: and [there is] no new [thing] under the sun. Is there [any] thing whereof it may be said, See, this [is] new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us. [There is] no remembrance of former [things]; neither shall there be [any] remembrance of [things] that are to come with [those] that shall come after.”

Let's review. These 6 traits of Prophecy in the Bible are Self-Evidential, derived from how the Bible confirms in truth that Gen 3:15 has been fulfilled, and will be fulfilled:

#4 Look at the rest of the Bible to figure out symbolism.

#5 Prophecies may have both a literal and/or spiritual fulfillment

#6 Prophecies may be fulfilled in stages, some parts immediately, some in the near future, while the rest waits to be fulfilled in the far future.

#7 Prophecies can be cyclic, and are equally valid and real fulfillments in every fulfillment.

#8 In cyclic prophecies, the same words can have different meanings in different fulfillments, but the relative symbolism of comparisons or actions represented between words is the same.

#9 Once a cyclic prophecy has begun and started to be fulfilled in part, it can continue to be fulfilled in various ways, until it is all fulfilled and can be fulfilled no more – like a fractal.

It seems that understanding Gen 3:15 as a prophecy, in full, we have gained enough “wisdom” to at least understand this one “teaching example” prophecy, and learned some of His Ways regarding symbolism and prophetic patterns. In the last section, it was the first 3 examples of Chronology breaks that seemed significant. So having covered the first prophecy in the Bible, let's look at the next 2 also, to see if any other insights as to His Ways are to be found in them.

The next example in the Bible of prophecy is Genesis 6:3.

Gen 6:3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also [is] flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

Most people consider this to be a prophecy, and it is, but it is of a different sort. God spoke this proclamation right after the sons of God took wives, and right before they had their kids the Nephilim. As such the most straightforward meaning of this verse, is that God was speaking to the sons of God and their wives – warning them that their kids would only live 120 years.

Yet somehow, all of mankind also eventually ended up only living 120 years. This can be understood as that the Nephilim had human bodies (but immortal evil spirits), had kids themselves, and so spread dominant genes for a shortened-lifespan on to the rest of humanity. (There is no problem with this if the “spirit”-type of the child is passed solely through the paternal line – see http://paradoxbrown.com/demonsnephilim.htm/ …Jesus is an example of this, Rom 5 indicates this, and the study on Gen 2-3 at walkintruth.net referenced above makes detailed biblical argument that this is the case for mankind, and has been from the beginning.)

So the key prophetic word here is “man”, which in the first instance “man” referred to their kids the Nephilim (who are called “men” the next couple verses) on account of their human bodies – and in the second instance the word “man” referred to all of mankind, eventually. From this we can see that a prophecy can have a literal fulfillment both in the near future, and also in the far future, regarding 2 different things that are described by the same word, but this word having 2 different meanings, referring to 2 different things. From this we can derive:

#10 Prophecy can have a literal fulfillment both in the near future, and also in the far future, regarding 2 different things that are described by the same word, but this word having 2 different meanings, referring to 2 different things.

The next prophecy in Genesis, with symbolism involved, is of Abraham and his seed.

Gen 22:17-18 That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which [is] upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.

The first meaning here was of Abraham's literal physical descendents, who down the line of Abraham's “seed” Isaac, became the nation ofIsrael. They were multiplied as the stars of heaven, possessed the gate of their enemies, and the Old Testament does describe in ways that at times other nations were blessed byIsrael. So at first there was a literal physical fulfillment of this prophecy. But the Bible makes clear that ultimately Jesus Christ was also the “seed” of Abraham, his descendent that was spoken of. He shall possess the gates of His enemies, and has, and by Jesus Christ, the “seed” of Abraham, the church has been multiplied, and all nations are being blessed. And so the second fulfillment is a spiritual one, of Jesus Christ and the Church.

2Cr 11:22 Are they Hebrews? so [am] I. Are they Israelites? so [am] I. Are they the seed of Abraham ? so [am] I.

Rom 9:6-8 Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they [are] not all Israel, which are of Israel: Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham , [are they] all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called. That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these [are] not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed .

Gal 3:16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ .

It seems like there are some new things to be learned from this prophecy as well. Here we see that the exact same prophecy can have both a literal physical meaning (Isaac to Israel to Jesus) that is more important at one time, which later switches to reveal it has a second spiritual meaning (Jesus to the Church) that is more important at a later time, showing that the importance of a literal or spiritual fulfillment can change from primary to secondary over time. Also, we can see that an earlier prophecy was given more specifics, narrowing it down, merging 2 prophecies together, as now not only would the coming Messiah be the “seed of the woman” but He also would have to be “the seed of Abraham”.

#11 The exact same prophecy can have both a literal physical meaning that is more important at one time, which later switches to reveal it has a second spiritual meaning that is more important at a later time, showing that the importance of a literal or spiritual fulfillment can change from primary to secondary over time.

#12 Later prophecies can merge with earlier ones, narrowing them down to be more specific.

And that is the end of covering the first 3 prophecies in Genesis of symbolism significance. It does seem that there was a 3 rd layer of information to be gleaned from Genesis. This information seems to have given “wisdom” that could be useful in understanding other prophecies in the Bible, deciphering them as the riddles they are. We now seem to have solid Bible-based knowledge as to His Ways regarding prophecy, how it can function, and how the symbolism of prophecy works, and as to the chronology and organization of prophecy. This could be the “wisdom” that was mentioned as needed to understand Rev 13:18, 17:9 and certain prophecies of Daniel. So let's take a look at these 12 points together:

These 12 points are what the Holy Bible teaches in a “Self-Evidential” manner in Genesis. These are (1) precedented biblical patterns of how God uses chronology, and uses breaks in chronology, to organize information in the Bible, and (2) precedented biblical patterns and characteristics of prophecies in the Bible, their symbology and functions in relation to the written words, and the characteristics of their fulfillments.

On Chronology:

The baseline or precedent is for Jesus to write in chronological order. But there are 3 exceptions:

#1: Jesus likes to give chronological summaries, and then go back and fill in important details. Even 20 verses of details might be expanded out from just 1 verse of summary. The markers between such sections may require a little logic, and have to be deduced from context.
- (Precedent – Gen 1:27 & 2:5-25)

#2: Jesus will put things in non-chronological order, to show the importance of a cause/effect relationship or spiritual significance to something that follows, however if He does so there is an earlier marker of omission that can be derived from context, a beginning, which is later filled in, an ending.
- (Precedent – prior to Gen 4:17 & Gen 6:1-4)

#3: Events of good and evil running parallel over time may be overlaid, with one detailed and the other only receiving a summary, and this may be derived from contextual markers.
- (Precedent – prior to Gen 4:17 & Gen 6:1-4)

The elements of these 3 exceptions can be mixed together to make new combinations, such as: More detailed information is given on an earlier chronological summary (#1), but it is written in such a way that it overlays a longer period of time (#3), and markers are given for the beginning and end (#2).
- (Precedent – Gen 10:10,25 & Gen 11:1-9)

On Symbolism and Functions:

#4 Look at the rest of the Bible to figure out symbolism.

#5 Prophecies may have both a literal and/or spiritual fulfillment

#6 Prophecies may be fulfilled in stages, some parts immediately, some in the near future, while the rest waits to be fulfilled in the far future.

#7 Prophecies can be cyclic, and are equally valid and real fulfillments in every fulfillment.

#8 In cyclic prophecies, the same words can have different meanings in different fulfillments, but the relative symbolism of comparisons or actions represented between words is the same.

#9 Once a cyclic prophecy has begun and started to be fulfilled in part, it can continue to be fulfilled in various ways, until it is all fulfilled and can be fulfilled no more – like a fractal.
- (#4-9 Precedent – Gen 3:15)

#10 Prophecy can have a literal fulfillment both in the near future, and also in the far future, regarding 2 different things that are described by the same word, but this word having 2 different meanings, referring to 2 different things.
- (Precedent – Gen 6:3)

#11 The exact same prophecy can have both a literal physical meaning that is more important at one time, which later switches to reveal it has a second spiritual meaning that is more important at a later time, showing that the importance of a literal or spiritual fulfillment can change from primary to secondary over time.

#12 Later prophecies can merge with earlier ones, narrowing them down to be more specific.
- (#11-12 Precedent Gen 22:17-18)

My theories on Bible Prophecy incorporate, follow, and are based on this Biblical understanding. I am postulating with my theories that:

(1) Understanding prophecy essentially requires 4-dimensional thinking and attempt at understanding a more eternal perspective. God is eternal, outside of time, seeing all of time at once, and is infinitely intelligent, and speaks only true words, including describing only true symbolism. To visualize, it seems like He sees a timeline, a living timeline of all human history and events, which are seen and happen all at the same time. The Bible speaks the truth in Ecc 1:9, “The thing that hath been, it [is that] which shall be; and that which is done [is] that which shall be done: and [there is] no new [thing] under the sun.” The same events do repeat in different ways. All prophecies should be considered as potentially cyclic, and in the case of cyclic prophecies, the words God has chosen in prophecies, and their symbolism, can be understood to be like a description of a repeated pattern of events that God is able to see on the timeline of all time, an accurate description of the same events being repeated in different ways.

(2) Known history itself is a fact, and serves as self-evidential confirmation of a fulfillment of a prophecy. Much of the intelligent intentional design of reality and humanity shows that God tends to teach with a “Self-Evidential” teaching style. This establishes the biblical precedent that cyclic prophecies, as a description of repetitious events occurring over the course of time, can be confirmed self-evidentially to be intentionally taught by God as such, by examining the historical record of self-evidential repetitious events, confirming them. For example, if God sees Jerusalem will be destroyed 2 times, in a way that is the same repeated pattern both times, then the words chosen of a prophecy of this event will match both of these 2 events, in truth, with the symbolic meaning of the words. God has chosen every word carefully, so that these prophecies match in truth – but to see how the words match all fulfillments with more precise clarity, it is necessary to follow biblical understanding and rules of interpretation of prophecy, which are self-evidenced by the Bible, such these 12 points, knowing His writing style. Doing so, cyclic prophecies can be understood to be words that in truth match both of the 2 instances of this example, without contradiction. If it is true thatJerusalemis destroyed 2 times in ways that both fit the words of the prophecy of this, then it is true, and self-evidential, confirmation of fulfillment of the prophecy. In doing such, it is clear that prophecy is not a case of either/or but a case of both/and..and…and.

(3) That summarily, many of the prophecies of the Bible, and the book of Revelation, are essentially complex cryptographic puzzles with 4-dimensional themes, interwoven across the Bible, requiring biblically self-evident deciphering rules to be used in order to solve the puzzle, and this has biblical basis in that the Bible refers to them as “riddles” and “mysteries/secrets”.

As such my methodology is to use the 12 points above as deciphering rules, keeping in mind prophecies can be cyclic, then comparing historical events to the words of prophecy, in order to eliminate which portions of prophecies have already had a fulfillment, to arrive at which portions yet need to be fulfilled, and further align and decipher them using these 12 points.
