The River Waters of Genesis, Chapter 2

January 08, 2011

It is as though the world is dancing on the ship made of iron called the Titanic, about to go down to the dark depths of her graveyard at the bottom of the sea. The Titanic, of which men believed that even God could not destroy it, is like that great iron empire, the coming Revived Roman Empire, which will fill the entire world, as a One World Order. It is the last empire of the Babylonian system of empires, bent on world ruler-ship represented by the strength of iron, but with feet made up of iron and clay, together making up a substance of inherent weakness.

And just how do the destinies of the empires and that of the Titanic relate to the waters of Genesis? Without the opening of the scrolls by the Lord Himself to give revealed understanding, we would never know (see Revelation, chapter 5). Once the final understanding is given, then the sky recedes like a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island is moved out of its place. For the great day of His wrath has come against an evil people who have rejected the truth of God, who will no longer have the Word, which the Creator gave to man so that he could know his Creator in a most intimate way (see Revelation, chapter 6).

The relationship between man and God was designed to be like that which is at the heart of the marriage bed. The worship and love that are found there, between a man and a woman, are but a symbol of the kind of worship and love God wanted between Himself and His beloved human being. Mankind was to be as a bride for the Lord, so that it could be fruitful spiritually as was the marriage bed fruitful. God wanted men and women to partner with Him in the process of creating sons and daughters so they could all be in the family of God to share in His incredible gift of creation.

In the beginning, there was darkness on the face of the deep, which is as the darkness of the sea, separated from the earth at creation so the substance of dust, having no seawater in it, could be the unpolluted substance from which God created man. His perfect man was created by the breath of the Spirit, giving him life. But he was also given free will with a choice to be made from the beginning. He would become part of that special family only as long as he obeyed God and did not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil in the midst of the Garden.

This was the point where man was free to make the decision between life and death. He was free to eat of the tree of life, which would give him eternal life, but only if he did not rebel against his Creator and His laws that govern over life and death. God’s precious gift of life was not about to be handed out to a creation that was lacking in gratitude.

At the heart of the darkness on the face of the deep, was the fall of Lucifer. He was the archangel in heaven who had become prideful, wanting to be worshiped like God to the point of wanting to dethrone Him. This was an angel blessed above the others (see Ezekiel 28), who caused the darkness on the face of the deep. God cast him from His presence to earth, where he became known as the devil, the serpent of old and the beast.

His spiritual powers had been covered over and relegated to the same seawaters, which God separated from man at creation. All waters are the symbol of spirits, which are either pure or evil, spirits of light and darkness, depending on whether they are life-giving or they lead to death.

Now, the Garden, where all things were created good, was surrounded by spiritual living water, which flowed from heaven, straight from the throne of God as the river of life. It was the water that produced good gold, the gold of worship pointing to God, which kept man obedient to God, under God’s rule in His government plan. The name of this river was the Pishon.

But man was made of flesh and spirit, and the lusts of the flesh caused him to be attracted by the lure of that serpent of old called the devil, who wrapped evil in a deceptive package, so alluring to the senses that the woman, Eve, weakened by lust, made the decision to succumb to the lure and eat the fruit of the forbidden tree. Satan licked his lips with glee, for he had now brought death, where God had given life.

When Adam listened to the woman instead of obeying God, the fall of man into sin from life to death was complete. Man could never again produce the good fruit or sons for God from a corrupted seed. Such seed could only produce sons for the devil who now would claim rebellious man as belonging to him. All future humans would become sons and daughters of the beast, the author of the lie.

And so, the devil used his evil spirit to lead man to develop a theory called Evolution, which suggests that the creation of God never took place. Since he has no creative power in him he counterfeits every move of God in order to draw men away from the truth. He created the lie that man merely evolved from his own kind. This allowed him to need no God and he could rule over himself. Pride would always lead to little men wanting to be honored and worshiped like the Most High God. They would fight wars henceforth for the honor of being the emperor of empires, which raise men up to the status of gods in the government plan of Satan.

Not valuing the breath of life, man rejected the truth for a lie to become an ungrateful human being in the process. Few, today, are willing to give thanks for any of the bounty God has lavished upon His people here in America. We have not given thanks for the endless supply of food, for medical care or for homes full of conveniences, which make living conditions in this country better than those in most countries of the world. This is how it has been until the present day, but now we are beginning to lose the wonderful blessing from God, which could have been ours, had we honored Him in the land.

But a loving, merciful God was not done with mankind. His plan went into action for man’s redemption by driving him from His paradise on earth to the east side of the Garden. He then closed it off on the east side so that man could not eat of the tree of life and live forever in God’s presence in the same evil state as that of Satan. The Way back to the tree of life and the kingdom was to be known as ‘The Way’, established for the purpose of returning mankind to God’s rule from the evil rule of Satan who, through man’s sin, had become the ruler of the world.

Now, the river water or spiritual water that came from the throne to water the Garden was divided into four riverheads, the Pishon being the good water of the Spirit of God. The other three waters represented the spiritual flow of the beast. When man sinned, there was no longer a separation of man from the seawater – it flowed back into the land in rivers of evil. Those three flows of the rivers Gihon, Hiddekel and Euphrates represent three different evil empires of history.

Think about it! God had just created man – how could there be nations at this time when there were only one man and one woman? Prophecy is of history in the making, and these rivers represent the evil empires of man to come before history is complete and man has been returned to the garden area or the kingdom on earth, which will ultimately give way to a new heaven and a new earth and the everlasting kingdom.

That means the first kingdom is right here on earth, when Jesus returns to rule and reign with His church of spiritual Israel in that area of the world called the Promised Land, the same piece of property where God planted His Garden. The return began with Abraham being brought back from the eastern lands of religion and satanic rule to come under godly rule. He was the father of the kingdom of men on earth through faith and obedience to God.

The Promised Land was to be purified by Israel, but the nation refused to give herself over to God and brought, instead, the idols of the empires of Satan with her into the land. First, she brought the waters of the Gihon back with her from the land of Egypt (Cush). She wanted always to worship the calf, and so the spiritual waters of the Gihon flowed from the riverhead into the land.

Then she worshiped the idols of Assyria, the next empire of Satan, allowing the river of the Hiddekel to flow into the Promised Land. When the evildoers of Israel were removed from the land and taken into captivity in Assyria, this river dried up along with the last of the river Gihon, which flowed out of Egypt.

The fourth river, the Euphrates, flowed from Babylon with all its gods and evil into the land of Judah, when the captives returned from their captivity. Both Israel, the nation and the spiritual nation embraced, and are embracing to this day, the gods of Babylonianism, which is very evident as we celebrate and honor the Greek gods of the Olympics. Political Correctness tells us we must honor the gods of the rising Revived Roman Empire, who are getting in position for ruler-ship of the coming One World Order.

Each empire, as it weakened, was conquered by a stronger one, causing the spiritual river to flow from out of Israel, dry up and give way to the spiritual flow of the next river of the next empire, as Israel embraced the new gods of the new empire. Only the Euphrates remains of the three rivers, until history is yet to be complete at the time of the end with the rise of second half of the last of the four Babylonian empires, the nature of which God revealed to the prophet Daniel. They were described in strength by substance and by beasts, for these were of the earth and not of heaven, and they were ruled by the beast.

The future of the nation of Israel was ripped from King Solomon, leaving Judah as the Davidic inheritance; for Solomon brought the harlots of multiculturalism into the Garden setting of the Promised Land known as Israel. “The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues (Revelation 17:15).” It is what we call multiculturalism in America, today.

The spiritual waters of the Euphrates are not yet dried up in Israel, so Jerusalem, which is where our Lord was crucified, is spiritually like Sodom and Egypt (See Revelation 11: 8); the land is possessed by idolatrous cultures, standing on the lies and religion of Satan. Israel is no longer a land inhabited by God’s people. Hebrewness no longer identifies the true Jew or the 144,000 witnesses who belong to the spiritual tribes of Israel, as declared by the blessing of Jacob, called Israel, in Genesis, chapter 49, upon his spiritual sons of the crossover blessing from first son to second son, from nation to spiritual nation.

Thus, the spiritual waters of the Euphrates have not dried up in a spiritual Israel that still remains subject to the rule of the Babylonian system of empires – the last empire being the Revived Roman Empire held together with the first empire by the glue of that political entity known as an institution of Christianity called the Roman Catholic Church. It, like Egypt, took the fledgling church into the captivity and slavery of a religiously-ruled, political system.

Both nation and spiritual nation grew within the empires of Satan, but now it is time for the last empire waters of the Euphrates to dry up within the body of spiritual Israel, with the final judgment of God about to fall upon the sinning church system. The tribulation is coming to make way for the kingdom, and for the coming reign of Jesus and His bride upon this earth. At the same time, Satan and his harlot will ride the beast to the bottom of the sea.

Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from east might be prepared (Revelation 16:12).

At last, the woman, the bride of the church (see Revelation 12), will bring forth the good fruit God always wanted from man, but only through the Spirit of her Beloved Lord Jesus when, together, they enter the land and the same river of life will surround it as surrounded it when it was God’s Garden of creation.

Jesus declared it when He stated that He was ‘The Way’, which started in the Garden with the eastern closure, and will culminate in the land called Israel when He and His people see the eastern gate of Jerusalem open to allow Jesus to ride in victory into the city of David. This will only occur once the religious waters of the evil empires of Satan are completely dried up so that only the river of life will flow once again from that piece of property called the Promised Land.

And, so the rivers of Genesis point from the very beginning to the entire prophetic history of the empires of Satan, which lead to the suffering of man caused by sin. They represent the evil waters, which by choice God’s people brought back into the Land with their idolatry, having sprung from the same spiritual riverhead as the Pishon.

The idolatry of the Israelites, which brought the evil spiritual waters into Israel was removed with the Israelites when they were driven from the land into the captivity of the empires, whose gods they so loved. God never wanted His people to suffer under these empires, but they chose otherwise. In fact, He loved His people so much that He took the suffering for them upon Himself, in the person of Jesus.

Again, it is your choice to be a fool or a wise man. You can choose, as a fool, to dance on the Titanic in the One World Order destined for the bottom of the sea. On the other hand, you can wisely choose to come out of religion and stand on the truth before the ship goes down, to remain separate from those reptilian waters. They are the same waters as those coming back in over the earth that are full of reptiles and threatening Queensland in Australia today.

It cannot be said that God does not warn us, first in the natural, of what is to come in the spiritual. Just as the birds are dropping from the sky where the spirit of the world rules the air, and the fish are dying in the polluted waters of the world where Satan resides, so too, shall man meet the same fate if he does not choose Jesus and His kingdom to come on earth as it is in heaven. Amen.

The Lord will utterly destroy the tongue of the Sea of Egypt; with His mighty wind He will shake His fist over the River, and strike it in the seven streams, and make men cross over dryshod. There will be a highway for the remnant of His people who will be left from Assyria, as it was for Israel in the day that he came up from the land of Egypt (Isaiah 11:15-16).

“…Who says to the deep, ‘Be dry! And I will dry up your rivers (Isaiah 44:27).'”

And so, with the rivers of Genesis, God prophesies that He will dry up the governments of man, to replace them with the kingdom and the government of God. Though His people have always chosen the evil waters and rule of Satan, He will again part the rivers for the remnant of the church, His bride. She will cross over dryshod, to depart from this world just as the nation crossed over dryshod to depart from Egypt. This will cause the river Euphrates to be dried up, the last river of Genesis, chapter 2, when the final empire of the world is destroyed and sent to the bottom of the sea.

Therefore thus says the Lord: “Behold, I will plead your case and take vengeance for you. I will dry up her sea and make her springs dry. Babylon shall become a heap, a dwelling place for jackals, an astonishment and a hissing, without an inhabitant (Jeremiah 51:36-37).”
