Seven Days Part 3

            From this point onward in “Genesis” is Part 3 (Mary Baker Eddy does not assign part numbers to chapter fifteen) or the third section.  The last BIBLE verse of Part 2 was Genesis 4:16 about Cain dwelling in the land of Nod (dreamland).  Nod actually means “ashes” or “to incinerate”.  So to me, the land of Nod could actually mean death.  Is not mortal life said to begin with dust (nothingness)?  Is this birth into ash or dust able to lead us anywhere but to death in dust or ashes?    “Ashes to ashes, dust to dust” are the words used by some priests at funerals.  Because Adam fell asleep and never woke up it is safe to say that his offspring of error, Cain, lives in dreamland (the land of Nod).  I believe the land of Nod means ‘a place or consciousness of sleep or slumber’ because of the phrase “he nodded off”.  It comes from the nod of one’s head.  But, if we take the different meanings of nod and put them together, it could simply mean that the whole belief that you are born into matter and then die out of matter (ashes to ashes, dust to dust) is nothing but a big fat dream!

WHAT DO WE REALLY KNOW ABOUT THE BIBLE?

            Before I speak about the difference between the two creation accounts I would like to present to you an excerpt from a book called FROM REVELATION TO GENESIS, written by Englishman, W. Gordon Brown.  In these few pages, beginning on page 10, he explains how the BIBLE came to be written.  (I always capitalize the word BIBLE entirely (unless I am quoting another source) because I feel it points to the importance of the masculine BIBLE over all other books, besides its feminine mate, in the world.)  [In this first section my interpolations will be in this type of bracket.]

Bible Prophecy Fulfilled (continued)

Bible Prophecy Fulfilled (continued)

            Chapter 16 of Bliss Knapp’s book The Destiny of The Mother Church is titled “Prophecy”.  It begins on page 236 with the picture seen below.  In the top left hand corner, on the Side of Life, there is Jesus and Mary Baker Eddy (there are also other less defined figures in the clouds).  Then with hands in prayer fashion and looking to heaven, more in the center, but near the Side of Light there is the man child.

Bible Prophecy Fulfilled

The Woman

            “The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.”  “I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.” (Matthew 13:33, 35)

            In Bliss Knapp’s book Destiny of The Mother Church he tells us about how the parable of the woman, told to us by Jesus, was kept secret from the foundation of the world, that it “implies that she was no ordinary woman and that her mission must be unique” (Destiny, p. 185).  His twelfth chapter (that seems to be in synch with Revelation’s twelfth chapter) is about Mary Baker Eddy and how she fulfilled Bible prophecy.  And this is the reason why the Board of Directors did not want his book to be read by Christian Scientists in the late 1940’s and why they really did not want to publish it in the early 1990’s.

WHAT CAN THE BIBLE TEACH US?

Do Jehovah’s Witnesses Understand What the BIBLE Really Says?
            How much do they know about BIBLE history and its writing?  Do they even know or care that there are two distinct creation accounts in Genesis?  One is called the Elohistic Document and it is about the spiritual creation done by Elohim-Shaddai, the second is called the Jehovistic Document and it is about an allegorical creation of a material world and man created by the Lord God Jehovah.  Jehovah is their main God, the one that is most important to the Witnesses.  These two documents were not even written down (into the Torah) until the Jews (not the Israelites) were taken into Babylonian captivity.  Any accounts of creation before this time, as well as stories about the Patriarchs, were handed down through verbal story telling.
