Plan of Salvation Foreshadowed in the Story of Creation

March 31, 2013

Over the last few months the Lord has led me to do a detail study of the Story of Creation with in Scripture and what He has shown me is not a new revelation but a lost mystery of God. I was fearful to write this as it goes beyond all that was taught to me as a child, yet what the Lord revealed is conformation of His truth for within the story of Creation Foreshadows of the Plan of Salvation.. I have hesitated for many weeks but as today is the Celebrating Resurrection of Christ Jesus He has placed it upon my heart to write this and share this now with those willing to seek His Truth with His wisdom and Understanding.. For He place upon my heart this piece of Scripture to assure me that I am to speak this to His Children

“Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops.” Matthew 10

I do not expect anyone to just believe what I wrote especially in a time when we are told there will be those who will teach lies to deceive the Children of God. So I ask you before you read further to please stop for a moment and ask the Spirit of the Lord to be with you and reveal if this is His Truth or lies of darkness.. For what He placed upon my heart I believe to be His truth as He confirms it several times to me. I only dug into His word using the New King James Version as well as Hebrew / English Interlinear Bible

It was upon my Journey with the Lord that He first led me in Genesis 2, and He showed me that there was a difference between the creation of mankind in Genesis 1 and the creation of Adam in Genesis 2. I ask you again to prayerful read these wordS and Let the Lord our God lead you in to His Wisdom and Understanding.

Many of us were taught to believe that Adam was created on the 6th day yet scripture itself tells us different. Come with me now and let us look at what Scripture reveals about the story of Creation and How the foreshadowing of Salvation is found in the Foundation of the World..

The Lord led me to this passage in Genesis 2.

This is the history of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens, before any plant of the field was in the earth and before any herb of the field had grown. For the Lord God had not caused it to rain on the earth, and there was no man to till the ground; but a mist went up from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground.”

And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.

As we Scripture states Genesis 2 that “before any plant of the field was in the earth and before any herb of the field had grown.” “God formed man from the dust of the ground”.. So one can only draw the conclusion that Adam was created early on the 3 day for Genesis 2 states in Genesis 1 here

Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth”; and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. So the evening and the morning were the third day.

We can see Scripture states that on the third day the grass, herbs and fruit trees were created before mankind where it states different in Genesis 2 quoted earlier above. Yet to what was placed on my heart not only was Adam created on the third day all of Eden was.. Comparable to the prototype that scientist use today.. Please let me continue and again I ask you to seek the Lord’s understanding with His wisdom and not the Wisdom of Man.

If we continue on in Genesis 2 comparing it to Genesis 1 we can come to His Complete understanding of how within the story of Creation is the foreshadowing of Salvation.

The Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed. And out of the ground the Lord God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food.

Here we see that God brought Adam in the garden of Eden before the creation of plant life began, Then the plant life was created..I know by now some of you are saying this cannot be true but please I beseech continue on before you dismiss and seek the Lord in Prayer and ask His for His wisdom to understand.

Let us return to Genesis 2

And the Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.” Out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature, that was its name. So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field.

Here we see that scripture states Adam was alone so God created all the animals all beast of the ground and the birds of the air Adam named them. Now if we return to Genesis 1 we see that God created everything according to its kind. (Name)

So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” So the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind“; and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind.

When we compare Genesis 1 with Genesis 2 we can see that Adam gave the names to all the animals and according to their names (kind) God created them on the whole face of the earth. How could God create things according to their kind if Adam had not be created first and named them? Also in Genesis 2 you see that the beast of the ground and the birds of the air were created on the same day where as in Genesis 1 the Birds were created on the fifth day before the rest Living Creatures (animal life) was created on the sixth day..

While God saw there was no helper comparable to him He created Eve from the Rib of Adam.. In Genesis 2 we see that Adam called her Woman.

And Adam said:

“This is now bone of my bones

And flesh of my flesh;

She shall be called Woman,

Because she was taken out of Man.”

Since scripture cannot contradict itself for God does not lie then we must seek the truth as we correlate the written word of God. So from my hearts understanding the garden of Eden, Adam and Eve were created on the 3rd day.. I believe the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve were the prototype for the rest of Creation for Lord Our God continued to create the rest of the creation according to how Adam named them.

Thus on the 6th day according to Genesis 1 God Created Male and Female Man Kind was created both Male and Female to have dominion over the all ..

Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all
the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and God said to them.

As we see God created male and female at the same time, I know that many are saying yet it says right there “God created him, male and female” That it says “him” This too stumped me and I sought the Lord in prayer and supplication because of this verse. That is when the Lord led me to the Hebrew / English Interlinear Bible and showed me that the actual word use “לָהֶ֜ם” in Hebrew text was not translatable at the time and Strong’s did not have the translation either.. So I took the actual Hebrew word spelling and put it into several translators all did not seem to recognize this word and except Google Translator. Which translated it as “them” the rest either could not or gave me the word “lā·hem” which is the exact English spelling of this word used in the lnterlinear. The English spelling was also unrecognized by Strong’s. Upon my heart it concluded that the word was plural and not a singularly use term, thus meaning them (mankind) for both were created together after the rest of Creation was created.

After this stretch of my Journey with the Lord through the story of Creation, I was not sure if what was upon my heart was truth. I set my face towards the Lord in prayer and supplication. It was during this time that He placed on my heart that there were three conformations lay within these chapters which will show that from the foundation of the world (creation) the plan of salvation was in place, so that even the Creation story itself foreshadows His Plan. Please again I ask you to seek the Lord understanding with His wisdom before we continue on…

As you can see from the understanding upon my heart that Adam and Eve and the Garden of Eden was create on the third day, God the Great Scientists prototype and the rest of mankind was created on the sixth day.. Right in this part is the first two conformation and foreshadowing of Salvation is..

We know that Jesus died on a Friday taking on the sin of all mankind, not just Adam’s but all of ours. As the Jewish Calendar shows us that Friday is the sixth day of the week. Is it a coincident that Jesus died on the sixth day for all of mankind? I would say NO for there are no coincidences only God’s Perfect Plan.. So we see that Jesus died on the same week day that mankind was created taken upon Himself the sins of all mankind.

We know that scripture tells us that Jesus was placed in the earth, (tomb) and rose from the dead on the Third day. It lays here the second conformation of plan of salvation. For just as Adam was created and arose from the the earth by the hand of God, Jesus arose from the dead from out of the earth by the hand of God. Just as scripture states in 1Corinthians 15. The First Adam was the living being (physical) Jesus, the last Adam is the Spiritual Adam, the life giving Adam..

“It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. And so it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit


However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual. The first man was of the earth, made of dust; the second Man is the Lord from heaven. As was the man of dust, so also are those who are made of dust; and as is the heavenly Man, so also are those who are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man.”

We also know that scripture tells us that through Christ we are a new Creation in Him. new created living being born of the Spirit; a new creation as seen in 1 Corinthians 5

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”

Also in Galatians 6

” For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but a new creation.

So we can see that by God creating the Physical Adam was created on the Third day Our Spiritual Adam Jesus was raise on the third day bring us into a new creation through/in Him..

It was after this lost revelation of old that the Lord showed, that He lead me to the third conformation which started at the beginning of Creation. He brought me back to Genesis 1 to the First day of Creation

“Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.”

It is no coincident that Jesus rose on the first day of the week for on the first day of Creation the God brought forth Light and that it was Good. We also see on that day God also divided light from darkness. We know that many parts of scripture states Jesus is the Light and through Him we are the Children of light . These two verses as found in John 8 and Ephesians 5 really spoke to my heart when the Lord led me to them during this journey.

“Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” John 8

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light 9 (for the fruit of the Spirit[a] is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth) Ephesians 5

Jesus rose from the dead He who is the Light. We who are in him are those are Children of light.. Thus we are set aside/divided from darkness and the children of darkness just as light and darkness were separated on the first day of creation.

For as we see that within the foundation of the Earth (days of Creation) God first foreshadows His plan of Salvation.. His Promise to us was/is inscribed within the very foundation of Creation..

I sorry this is so long for I felt led to give you snap shots of my journey with the Spirit of the Lord. I hope this makes sense for it is hard for me to write what is upon my heart.. As I said do not take my word for it, bring all this to the Lord through Prayer, supplication, and searching the scriptures, seeking His wisdom and understanding. For we are called to test all things and to search the scriptures. We know that Scripture testifies Jesus and the Plan of Salvation

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 1 John 4

Test all things; hold fast what is good. 1Thessalonians 5

You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me. John 5

These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so. Acts 17

May the Spirit of the Lord be with you as you seek His Truth with His wisdom and Understanding and May His Peace beyond Understanding fill your hearts and homes.. God bless you and keep you always..
