Hosea 12:10 (KJV)

I have also spoken by the prophets, and I have multiplied visions, and used similitudes, by the ministry of the prophets.

John 5:39 (KJV)

Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.  

1 Corinthians 15:46

Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.

The Old Testament is in the New Revealed, the New Testament is in the Old Concealed

2 Corinthians 4:6

For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

***So, Paul the apostle new of a parallelism between Genesis 1 and our salvation process but is this metaphor extendable?***

The Holy Spirit/Jesus and Eden

(From this Web Site : Jesus Hints at a Gap (here))

The Garden of Eden was seeded from plants from Heaven and not present on the Earth (and not newly created or made) l(Kat kerr).  Genesis 2:9 ‘…. made the LORD God to grow…’

Planet Earth was a perfect creation and (in Gap Theory) falls into a death and darkness judgement. God remakes it with an added special new central creation of the Garden of Eden ‘seeded’ from heaven. Out of the belly of life on Earth, through Eden, flow rivers of water that give life to Eden and all around.

Humans fall into darkness and a spiritual death and they are reborn with indwellings from Jesus and The Holy Spirit, implanted from Heaven which leads to living water proceeding out of the belly of man’s spirit which gives abundant life (and yields fruit) to those around.

Some properties of the living water given to us by The Holy Spirit may be revealed by the literal meaning of the names of the Rivers: Pison, Gihon, Hiddekel and Euphrates meaning overflowing, bursting forth, rapid and fruitful respectively.

I suspect, and it may also be, that the actions of the living waters are hinted at in the literal meaning of the places they reach (literal meanings in brackets).

Pison reaches or encircles Havilah (circle) where there is gold, bedelium (a fragrant resin) and onyx (precious metals and stones). Gihon encapsulates the whole of Kush (black). Hiddekel goes forward or east towards Ashshuwr (a step or an Assyrian}, Euphrates is only described with its name and it means fruitful (perhaps an indication of  the prime attribute and the prime action of the Holy Spirit in this metaphor).

lKerr has revealed the importance of precious stones from within God as gifts for us and they seem to have some other value or function as well as aesthetics. lKerr has also revealed how the River of Life runs from the throne room of God (and does contain precious stones within it) and so, rivers of life coming from out of our bellies is being made ‘in His image’ also. The exact function of precious stones remains a mystery to me though? God gifts a precious stone to and within us at salvation. l(Kat kerr). The antichrist is thought to be referred to as an Assyrian.

So, with the literal meaning of the destinies and paths of the Eden rivers in mind, it may be that the living water that proceeds out of our bellies is intimately related to precious stone ‘gifts’, encapsulates and separates us from darkness, will confront evil and is always fruitful?


So did Jesus hint at Gap Theory when he said that ‘scripture says living water will flow out of our bellies’ (John 7:38) because I can find no scripture that does explicitly say that? However, the metaphor with the rivers of Eden for living waters does describe it in detail but the metaphor only really works with Gap Theory as Eden is planted on a remade Earth and The Holy Spirit/Jesus are planted in a newly born again Christian. There are more references to living water in ‘Biblical  Evidence of a Gap’ on this site and summarised here. But none are as clear a metaphor as the Eden ‘type’. Maybe Jesus said this just  for the creation debate today today?


This again seems to represent a link between life on/in the surface of planet Earth and our spirit

 What God does for the life (a kosmos) on the born again Earth  so He will do for our born again spirit (ruah). A prophetic seam throughout Genesis?

Floods on Earth and Judgment on Man

Parallel stories; The Bible often deals with parallel stories or repeating themes or types, once the revelation that the first creation was judged by bursting the water canopy by God the Father, l(Kat Kerr) , several parallel  stories become apparent.

Earth

First creation-Flooded from above only and from God the Father only See the main essay on this site.

Second Creation (or remake)-Noah’s flood from above and below

(The fountains of the deep and widows of Heaven-rain).


Man

Adam (and mankind) originally judged by God the Father from above. Genesis 3-Garden of Eden

All mankind-The second judgement is from God the Father above and from the Lord Jesus himself, an earthly (below-not unequal!) version of God. (The great white throne judgement of Revelation 20 and judgment at the seat of Christ in 2 Corinthians 5.)

Jesus always an earthly version of God on High

(John 10:30)  

Light, Man and God- ‘God is light’ (1 John 1:5) (Light, Earth and Mankind)

Parallel stories; The Bible often deals with parallel stories, repeating themes or types, once the revelation that the first creation was lit by the Glory of God and no Sun or Moon are present several parallel stories appear:

Light on the Original Earth-from God

The light that illuminates the original creation on planet Earth is directly from God-God’s Glory. It continues to shine but no longer in this realm.

It was pervasive and there was no shadowing. It shines from within-and is transdimensional.

It originates in the spiritual world. And God is light. (1 John 1:5)

God’s Glory has unfathomable properties.

The whole Earth falls and is judged and in darkness

The second creation/renovation is lit by a new light (from the Sun, the making of which is attributed to Jesus in Genesis 1. [God  (the Father) said,..God(the word) made] What you make does for plane Earth  reflects your role in our salivation.

There is now darkness and light. (Genesis 1:4)

The light is a physical realm version of God’s Glory Light

Light still has mysterious properties. (E.g. duality)

Light in our Spirit and Soul-God and Jesus.

Adam had his spirit (made of light- l(Kat kerr)) breathed into him directly from God, there was no darkness in him.

God lights this spirit from within by his presence and man shines from this.

Adam’s spirit radiates light.

God is in the spiritual world.(2 Corinthians 4:6)  (Psalm 18:28 )  (Proverbs 6:23)

Then Adam/mankind falls and is judged and his spirit is in darkness

The regenerated saved man is lit by a new light from an earthly manifestation of God in Jesus Christ. (John 8:12)

There is darkness and light as man struggles.

The light of Jesus is a physical realm version of God’s Light

Jesus is the light of the world and an earthly physical realm version of ‘God is Light’

Both God and Jesus remain beyond understanding.(John 1:4 ) (John 8:12)  (1 John 1:7)


Jesus: an earthly version of God on High

(John 10:30)

Several of the Above can be Combined  Into  Bigger Metaphors   -

 The Journey of Life on Planet Earth (kosmos) and Individual Saved Humans/Humankind

Parallel stories; The Bible often deals with parallel stories or repeating themes, once the revelation that the first creation was lit by the Glory of God is known several parallel stories become apparent.

Earth: A perfect creation lit by the Glory of God (a deposit from the spiritual realm) and light shines on Earth from within it. There is no night time and no darkness. There is no weather.

The Earth is judged and falls into a satanic induced darkness and death. Life giving water becomes a disordered flood and is frozen and is no longer a source for life.

A gap occurs-and it is then relit by a physical realm version of God’s Glory light (the light of the Sun and Moon). There will be some darkness and some light. (Genesis 1:3) The Earth struggles on under bondage and decay but will eventually be remade and will no longer decay and will be an eternal and glorious Earth.

Every Saved Person: Everybody was made perfect and was given a spirit - a gift from God from the spiritual realm. In Adam, this shone from within and more so in the presence of God. Man’s spirit is calm. There is no darkness in man until he sins. Every person is born into a fallen state from the time of Adam and ‘falls’ from that point and is judged with a spiritual death and walks in this satanic induced judgement and darkness. Our living waters and spiritual gifts are switched off (frozen?).

A gap occurs from this time until man is born again and then, he will be relit by Christ and the Holy Spirit, there will be some darkness and some light but all will eventually be remade to be part of an eternal and glorious Body (of Christ) and as a person individually. For some, out of their bellies living water will flow.

(John 1 9)   (John 8:12)   (John 9:5)  (John 12:46)


Mankind  Mankind in the form of Adam was made perfect and was given a spirit - a gift from God from the spiritual realm. This shines in the presence of God. There is no darkness in these spirits.

Adam and mankind fall and are judged with a satanic induced judgement and darkness. A spiritual ‘death’. Our living water gifts no longer function (frozen).

A gap occurs from Adam to Christ’s resurrection- until mankind can be relit by Christ and the Holy Spirit, there will be a struggle with some in darkness and some in light.

Some will eventually be born again/remade to be part of an eternal and glorious Body (of Christ).

 God Seems to Honour Certain Design Consistencies

Always a Gap (Always testifying of Jesus), Three days later an upgrade


  1. Robin Bullock reveals an apparent continual thread (here) throughout the Bible:[1]

Sew/plant the seed

leave for a time

Harvest , (this applying to even every word we say.)

  1. God creates in layers l(Kat Kerr). (Physical, spiritual or hierarchical?)
  2. After 3 days Jesus rose from the dead to give us eternal life (an abundant life, a life in heaven, a life in the presence of God, a Saviour. The biggest upgrade imaginable!)

The Creation Days Recognise Christ’s Sacrifice

Day 1: Layer 1: Light is ‘let be’: a canvas for the Sun, Moon and stars to display their glory.  The electromagnetic spectrum is made/rekindled at this point having different properties (light and darkness)...then a gap of 3 days..

Day 4: Layer 2:Three days after physical light comes to the Earth, the Sun, Moon and stars are made. They display their light. (Become apparent as light is the glory of the stars) (1_Corinthians 15:41)  (Also, spiritual light from God in the spiritual realm is replaced by physical light-the light of day 1-light floods in from the spiritual realm at God’s command-3 days later a physical realm version of  this spiritual light (the sun)-typing God’s then Jesus’ light for our spirit/soul)


Day 2: Layer 1:The atmosphere and water are made: a canvas for birds and fish to utter speech …then a gap of 3 days…

Day 5: Layer 2: Fish and birds (possibly others too, see the main essay on this site) are made-higher creations.(the medium lets this creation show all of its glory)


Day 3: Layer 1:Dry ground and plants are made: a canvas for animals and humans to utter speech . ….then a gap of  3 days…

Day 6: Layer 2:Then man and animals are made-higher creations. (the plants let the creation show all of its glory)

Planet Earth: Originally created as a medium for man to live on. Layer 1 a physical world….then a long gap-then man is created in the image of God-a higher creation. Layer  2. I would not be surprised if the ‘gap’ in Gap Theory was 3 times the length of time as to when there was life?

Man is created as a platform to be in the family of and fellowship with God, Jesus and The Holy Spirit-a canvas for God’s Glory (this takes a long time-after the fall and the plan of redemption takes much ‘due process’) layer 1….there is a gap of three days while Jesus was in the heart of the Earth-then after the resurrection the superior in-dwelling relationship can occur. (Man can show God’s full glory) layer 2 (and also his own).


 Concisely

An extension of Paul the Apostle’s Metaphor

(2 Cor 4:6)

‘The Big Ball’; Planet Earth,the atmosphere, and the waters = God

The (surface of the) Earth, Life on Earth, in the sky & in the sea = Our spirit

( A Kosmos = What adorns the Earth)

Therefore, Kosmos Metaphors Our spirit

Mist from Above and Below-Spiritual Gifts from Above and Below

Parallel stories; The Bible often deals with parallel stories or repeating themes- ‘types’


Kerr’s Relevant Revelation:

Kerr describes the first created Earth as watered from mist descending from a water canopy encapsulated within a water vapour shield, watered form above. Two thirds (the bulk) of the water being in the canopy. l(Kat Kerr) A separated space giving out life giving water. I suggest, the water canopy is a metaphor for Heaven/God the Father. l(Kat Kerr) describes this mist as drenching the whole atmosphere and being un-breathable by us today.

The second recreation is watered from mist from the Earth (Genesis 2:6) (and later after Noah’s flood from rain but all initially from the ground-the bulk of water in the ground (and I expect this to be so when the second water canopy was present, making it smaller than the first). Here the Earth is a metaphor for Jesus.

Similitude:

Man (Adam) is initially ‘lit’ in his spirit (made from light)-a gift from God and given many gifts including eternal life by this spirit from God-from a high and separate Heaven. The gifts and this spirit originating from the spiritual realm-from above.Adam’s gifts were defined by Robin Bullock (here)  as huge. So, also ‘drenched’?

Fallen man is relit by a new spirit from Jesus Christ on Earth and given gifts including eternal life but coming from Jesus Christ an earthly realm version of God-from below.

John 4:14 (KJV)  But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

Jesus an earthly version of God on High

(John 10:30)


The Journey of Life on Earth Reflects The Journey of Our Spirit and Mankind

The Whole of Genesis 1 and 2 can be viewed metaphorically with the surface of  planet Earth and life on Earth acting as a kind of ‘type’  or ‘typing’ of our spirit man (our living soul). The similitude testifies throughout to the Lord Jesus Christ

(In my opinion, this is an impossible coincidence and so, the KRM and hence, Gap Theory must be true)


The Metaphor Key Derives from Genesis 1 and the Bible Itself.  Paul the Apostle  (2 Cor 4:6)  Defined the Metaphor when he Likened Light Shining on Earth to light Shining in our Spirit.

 ***God is telling us two simultaneous stories in Genesis 1 and 2. Each and Every verse having at first a literal physical realm meaning and then, in similitude, a spiritual one.***

 (Genesis-A prophetic thread with specific descriptions of the Triune God’s

roles in the creation of life on Earth reflecting their own individual attributes, and ‘typing’ their role in our redemption and the changes they carry out to our Spirit)

This all may seem a little contrived to start with but bear with me as all ‘typing’ will link together, confirm each other and testify to the Lord Jesus Christ. Strangely, the Bible’s use of ‘it was so’, ‘it was good’ and especially ‘kinds’ will, I suggest, absolutely confirm this metaphor by a way you will not have imagined before. See below.

The role of each member of the Trinity in the Genesis 6 day creation account defines a metaphor key which describes their future roles in our redemption and also our future indwelling relationships. The whole text is a thing of astonishing beauty and subtle craft. When studied, as well as having a literal meaning, Genesis 1 and 2, almost appear, at least sometimes, to have the text written more with the metaphor in mind than the literal. See later in this essay.

In Genesis 1 The Holy Spirit is within the atmosphere (‘hovering’), so, in similitude the atmosphere (air) describes The Holy Spirit’s location to our redeemed spirit-(or corporately everyone’s redeemed spirit)-the omnipresence. ‘Of the air’ = ‘from/of The Holy Spirit

Jesus also plays an additional role in establishing our atmosphere (by making the firmament) and additionally, makes life in the sky, sea and on land. So, what the atmosphere, firmament and life in the sky, sea and on land does in recreating life on Earth ‘type’ (metaphor) what Jesus does for our  redeemed spirit.  Jesus makes life on earth = Jesus accomplishes our salvation. Aspects of the nature of our relationship with Jesus are also revealed in the relationship between the firmament/life in the atmosphere/on land and  the sea and the newly created life on Earth.

  1. metaphors the spirit of man/men. I have used the term  ‘kosmos’  in the metaphor in  that throughout the Bible it may often also be alluding to our spirit(s). (Here)
  2. For the metaphor, I ask you to consider the kosmos stretches from and includes the firmament (as described in (Genesis 1:20)) (also called the water canopy-not the firmament that is outer space) right down into the Earth as far as life grows into it (but not the whole Earth) Just the surface of the Earth. The surface of the Earth being a part of the Earth and thus also representing that part of our original spirit from God the Father. An overlap occurs where the Earth may mean God the Father or mans base spirit breathed into Adam or knitted to our bodies at conception. It could also simultaneously mean both. This concept itself hinting that our spirit ‘constituents are from God the Father. A copy and paste ‘in his image’.
  3. (Dust being made of and coming from the ‘earth/ground’)
  4. It includes life in the waters but not the waters themselves. It includes life in the atmosphere but not the atmosphere itself.  
  5. (Genesis 1:20) describes our atmosphere as Heaven (samayin). Note, Earth (‘eres’) can also be translated as surface of the ground. Note,  Heaven (samayim- can also be translated as an abode of God ). So, ‘heaven  and Earth’ in Genesis 1:1 may also be considered synonymous with ‘kosmos’ or life on Earth as described in this key.


The Holy Spirit brooded, God spoke and Jesus made.

And Salvation is purposed by the Father (God said), accomplished by the Son (all that God made/created), and applied by the Holy Spirit (brooded, waters brought forth) [3]

‘The evening and the morning were the second day’-darkness and coming light-day(time) #2

Day  3:What God does to renew life on the judged Earth He will do to renew our fallen spirit

Genesis 1:10:And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

This is literal but also: as God himself makes the place for life on Earth (God says… God made/created …. meaning God The Father spoke… Jesus made… is missing from this text-just God commanding is mentioned), so in similitude, in the KRM God himself provides our spirit the base for our new life by breathing it out or dispatching it to us from Heaven from Himself. (Genesis 2:7) (Psalm104:30) . (So, the Earth symbolises God the Father or our base spirit from Him).

Please note the waters on Earth are now seas in Genesis 1:10 and not in Genesis 1:9-more below.

Genesis 1:11-12  And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

This is a literal event, the Earth brings forth designs held there (shadows from a previous creation). Please note. to repeat: no additional ‘creating’ or ‘making’ is described, (as there is no repeating ‘God made’ confirming the same command actioned). The Earth ‘types’ God the Father, so this is just God the Father bringing forth within the metaphor. But also:

 


As God finishes the re-make of life on Earth so the prophetic plan for our spirit’s redemption/remake is complete

Genesis 2:1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

The new life on Earth (kosmos) is finished, so, in similitude the metaphor moves to describing the time when the plan for redemption was completed. The plan for redemption is prophesied in the metaphor within Genesis days 1-6 but does not come into action until the time of  the Abrahamic Covenant and not after Genesis day 6. It finally comes to its full fruition after Christ’s resurrection and man’s salvation. See more on this below or in more detail on this site (here) for a more in-depth analysis of the Abrahamic Covenant.  

Please note, ‘host ‘may with a dual meaning be referring to angels created in day 4 in the KRM

Day 7: As God rests after and sanctifies his created work (sanctifies just created  work and rests after both created and made work?) So, in similitude, He also rests from the time the prophesied redemptive plan is finished and sanctifies newly created redeemed spirits after Christ’s resurrection.

Genesis 2:2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

The creation, including life on Earth is completed and God rests so, in similitude God rests after the ‘works’ for the plan for redemption for our redeemed spirit (prophesied in the metaphor) are complete. The ‘rest’ is not the same ‘rest’ as Genesis day 7 but the ‘rest’ described in Hebrews 4:3-5 which corresponds to the completion of this redemption plan. This second rest can be entered into. Note, as described by Robin Bullock (here) that God ended his work ‘on’ the seventh day but the next verse (verse 3) is described as resting ‘in’ the day and that day is sanctified. More below. So, as God rests after completing life on Earth so, in similitude, God rests after the plan for redemption comes alive (the Abrahamic Covenant). (The term ‘katabole kosmos’ (foundation of the world) makes for an interesting link in that the time of the completion of  the foundation of the world may be the Abrahamic Covenant (here) but also the plain text meaning of the foundation of the world (Genesis days 1-6) is the plan for redemption in similitude. The actual and the metaphor seemingly entwined, much more below.)


(Hebrews 4:3-5 KJV)  For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished (that enabled them to enter into his rest) from the foundation of the world. For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works. And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest,  Here the text describes a second ‘seventh day rest’ other than Genesis day 7 (in this place again) and different works to Genesis days 1-6. The text also allows for future rests after future works also. More below




God summarises the two creations and remakes of  ‘life on Earth’ and our pre-fallen and redeemed spirit

Genesis 2:4 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.

The name of  ‘God’ in Genesis 1 and 2  changes from God to LORD God in this verse and from then on remains as LORD God. This occurs with the remade life on Earth being completed and it is generally thought to represent a new closer relationship with the creation, so, in similitude, our relationship with God becomes closer and more intimate when we are born again and indwelt with Jesus and The Holy spirit.  I suggest, the timing of this statement and name change is significant and unmistakable.

(****A striking similitude which is, I also suggest, even on its own, way beyond chance****).  Born again Earth and born again man-new closer relationship with God for both from that point-referenced with a name change.

Robin Bullock describes  (here) that the plain text name change describes a relationship change moving to one of  ‘creation governance’. In similitude, so does the indwelling Holy Spirit and Jesus give our born again spirit guidance (governance).

The sentence describes more than one generation/manifestation of ‘the heavens and Earth’, so, in similitude the text metaphors more than one manifestation of our spirit-before the fall and its subsequent redeemed manifestation. Note, how the former is created (a new creation from God) but the latter just made (modification of an existing work to completion) applying to both our spirit and life on Earth.  Awesome and undeniable ?

Note how this is another before and after salvation double construct, before Adam’s fall our spirit and abode of God being created and after salvation our spirit and ‘abode of God’ being remade. . Note also, how the addition of an indwelling within the body of Christ  could still class as a creation in addition to the remake as we are a new creation in Christ (a new design).  (Emphasis on the ‘in’) (2 Corinthians 5:17).  But the individual is predominantly a rework and so ‘made’ (asah) is appropriate. A consistency throughout Genesis.

Genesis 2 moves to describe God’s (interactive) governance of planet Earth and in similitude, the Bible (later on in the book) describes God’s (interactive) governance of our spirit (Governance: termed by Robyn Bullock-an interactive relationship)-

It is now all about our relationship-ruah to ruah-so terms will change

(Day 3 addendum) What  life on Earth needs to be born again/grow, so does for our spirit

Genesis 2:5-6 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground (no man can attain salvation on their own)(and rain-the Holy Spirit- seems to render the earth now ‘ground’). But there went up a mist (the drawings of The Holy Spirit) from the earth (from God The Father), and  watered the whole face of the ground (Everyone and/or the whole of man’s spirit)(5


God’s Template for Design

On reviewing the above similitudes it becomes clear that life on Earth  (a ‘kosmos’) is constantly used to ‘type’ man’s spirit/soul. When the New Testament uses the Greek word ‘kosmos’, translated as world, it too, seems often to be applying to the spirit(s) of man (examples here). So, I have used a similar terminology. The rest of this page is to explore this ‘type’ in more detail throughout Genesis 1 and Genesis 2.

The Prolonged Kosmos-Ruah Metaphor (KRM)

As the Triune God does to Re-new Life on Planet Earth (a kosmos)

so They do To Redeem Mankind’s Spirit and Soul (man’s living soul)-a ruah

(This only works with Gap Theory)

(One of the longest running, metaphors,with multiple logical ‘typing’ in the entire Bible? (Almost 2 chapters and also with ties to the phrase ‘The Foundation of the World’ and the use of  ‘kosmos’)

An extension of Paul the Apostle’s Metaphor in

(2 Cor 4:6)

KRM

Kosmos-Ruah Metaphor:

A prolonged metaphor within Genesis ‘‘typing’ life on Earth with our ‘spirit man’ (living soul)

A stepwise path to salvation

What God does for the regenerated life on Earth he will do for our born again spirit

Genesis 2:7 And the LORD God formed (yatsar) man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

This is literal  as Jesus uses God’s words to make man from the ‘dust of the ground’: (the ground being the Holy Spirit-mist-changed spirit of man-earth. There are two layers of metaphor here: So, in similitude as God does for life on Earth (kosmos) so he does for our spirit, this reveals two different types of constituent similitudes:

Salvation is purposed by the Father, accomplished by the Son, and applied by the Holy Spirit. [3]

What God does to renew life on Earth, he will do for our born again spirit

Genesis 2:8: And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.

This is literal but also: as God planted a garden and placed man in that Garden of Eden (lEden is described by Kerr as plants imported from Heaven), so, in similitude He also  ‘put’ our newly ‘born again’ spirit into the newly ‘planted’ Holy Spirit’s/Jesus’ indwelling package and they are adjacent to each other. (Note: it says Eastern side of Eden for the Garden not actually the whole of Eden). Making Eden maybe man’s own spirit ‘space’ and The Holy Spirit and Jesus and our new ‘born again’ spirit all in this space adjacent to it.  Our spirit or part of our spirit placed ‘in’ this indwelling ‘garden’


What Eden (part of life on Earth-kosmos) does for life on Earth so, The Holy Spirit/Jesus does for our born again spirit

Genesis 2:9 And out of the ground (our spirit acted upon by The Holy Spirit) made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

This is literal but also: as God planted and made to grow these trees to become a part of life on Earth, so, He also placed within our spirits, gifts to grow in us that enable us to discern God’s Word (food), gifts us eternal life and a gift of a knowledge of good and evil. The trees again alluding to The Holy Spirit/Jesus as in Genesis 1:11. The fruit of these trees being spiritual gifts. Please note,, how these grow out of the ground which in the metaphor means our spirit acted upon by The Holy Spirit and now may contain spiritual gifts/constituent from Jesus and The Holy Spirit or our base spirit.

Salvation is purposed by the Father, accomplished by the Son, and applied by the Holy Spirit. [3]


Just An Allegory? The Holy Spirit likes Allegories and they are deemed important throughout the Bible-Paul the Apostle referred to this prolonged metaphor (2 Corinthians 4:6)

Exodus 17:6 Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.

Numbers 20:11

And Moses lifted up his hand, and with his rod he smote the rock twice: and the water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their beasts also

The verses describe Moses striking a rock and water flowing out of it and again in the Numbers passage when he was supposed to illicit the same water flow by just speaking to the rock but strikes it instead. God punished Moses severely for this and I believe this is not just because he disobeyed His instructions but also because a metaphor would now, no longer hold.

(1 Corinthians 10:1-4)  explains that this ‘rock’ is a metaphor  for Christ, making the water a likely metaphor for salvation.  So, as well as Moses literally doing this-the first striking of the rock signifies Jesus’ crucifixion and the second just talking to the rock signifies our salvation by the same. Allegories/metaphors/similitudes are, I suggest, very significant to God as Moses is punished severely and not allowed to enter the promised land for this.

There are allegories throughout the Bible, eg Jesus the Good Shepherd, parables etc, they seem to be a kind of a prolonged metaphor. It would appear that the kosmos-ruach is a prime example of this type of similitude, comparing the life on planet earth to our born again spirit. The roles of each of the triune God recognised, prophesied and ‘typed’-the ‘kosmos’ a prolonged metaphor for our redeemed spirit.

The word ‘Kosmos’ is used 187 times in the New Testament. See all of them at the bottom of this page (here). In many of the examples ‘kosmos’ appears to be used to refer to our spirit, unsaved spirit or perhaps,  the vast ‘sea’ of unsaved and saved spirits.  This adds weight to the use of ‘kosmos’ for the ‘ruah’ of man in the KRM. There is an element of ‘kosmos’ alluding to man’s spirit in many common biblical verses too.

 ********Double Construct (similar) Verses********

 There are at least seven (maybe eight) double construct verses in Genesis 1 and three more in Genesis 2.  These adjacent verses or blocks of text slightly differ in detail in the first part to the second. Within the KRM, the first  part/verse describes what God will do for our salvation (usually a command) and often the pre-salvation condition and the second part (usually an action) describes the step wise changes to salvation it effects.  All, I suggest, within the KRM, describe our salvation in astonishing detail. The whole of Genesis 1 and 2 can be better understood with this knowledge. It is beautiful and  elegant text.. Here is a full list of them all.

The use of ‘was’, ‘it was so’, ‘it was good’  and double constructs verses support both Gap Theory and the KRM  

(‘it was so’-before salvation, ‘it was good’ after salvation) or, in the literal:

(‘it was so’-like this in the first creation, ‘it was good’-the second re-creation is good)

God seems to have certain phrases and declarations applied to His Genesis creation and making processes. It is reasonable to assume that these are applied consistently.

If so, these repeating phrases in Genesis 1 support Gap Theory and the KRM.

The first verse/part of a ‘double construct’ often starts with God said God said… and the second often starts ‘God made

In addition, for each day except one God declares that what he saw was ‘good’-‘it was good’. The only day he does not declare was ‘good’ was day 2 when the firmament was made. In the KRM, day 2 seems to be referring to an allocation of the roles of Jesus and The Holy Spirit and also a new ‘design’ for our spirit and this is not yet a completed ‘step’ for man along his path to salvation, hence there may be no need to declare the day as ‘good’ in the step wise path to salvation.  I suggest the declaration of ‘good’ applies to actual changes in our spirit, (more below) in line with the rest of the KRM, there is no change to our spirit as yet, so day 2, is just  the new design of man to accommodate those changes. There is also a reason for its omission in the literal. Below

I have always found day 2 slightly unusual and with due reverence. of course, it would seem to be more suited to be carried out at the same time as separating the waters of day 3.  Waters all sorted out together. I suggest the making of the firmament (the atmosphere and waters) on day 2 and the subsequent population of them in day 5-3 days later- honours and testifies of Jesus. (An abundant life 3 days later as Jesus did for mankind.) As God does not end day 2 with ‘it was good’. I suggest it can really be linked with day 3-although the day has ended the ’it was so’ summary is, in effect being continued. Interestingly, It may also be linked with day 5 which does not have an ‘it was so’ statement.

The general trend throughout Genesis 1 and 2 are events summarised by two comments-a ‘double construct’ the first-God commands something to happen and finishes it by declaring -‘it was so’. Then a subsequent second summary of God carrying out the declared process and this second time declaring ‘it was good’. (However, the three Genesis 2 double constructs do not have ‘it was so’  and ‘it was good’ summaries). As the first command appears to be finished with the ‘it was so’ and so the second description is similar but not identical with the first and these differences describe the changes to our spirit after salvation with very subtle craft. I suggest that both sentences are still applying to both the literal and the KRM but with these very subtle differences between the two summaries-the second slanting clearly towards the KRM (or more precisely, to the effects on our living soul of the first command).

When God declared ‘Let light be’ then seemingly immediately light ‘was’. This immediate response seems almost an instant and ‘always was’  version of ‘ it was so’. God declares ‘it was so’ on days 2. 3 4, and 6 and perhaps is doing the same on day 1 but as light ‘types’ God this may be alluding to the immutable and infinite God not changing. A kind of ‘I am’ statement for the KRM. This is different for day 5 as there is no initial ‘it was so’ on day 5 when the waters are commanded to bring forth two things ‘nephesh chayyah’ components and ‘fowl’ that ‘may fly in the open firmament of heaven’.  I suggest this is because in the KRM the spiritual gifts it metaphors- the indwellings are not given until salvation-there being no changes to describe as ‘it was so’. Likewise, the additional to salvation spiritual gifts of the Holy Spirit- ‘fowl that may fly’. This is within the KRM,  but there are significant meanings to the omission of ‘it was so’ in the literal.too.

The use of ‘Kind’ (min) supports the KRM and hence Gap Theory

(The use of ‘kind’ opens up more information about ‘it was so’ and ‘it was good’ statements)

‘Kind’ is used to describe organisms brought forth/made/created on days 3, 5 and 6. Each time it is used there are differences in its application between the first or ‘it was so’ statement and the follow up or ‘it was good’ statement. I suggest that these differences clearly define our path to salvation within the KRM and this provides strong support for the KRM and by extension Gap Theory.  See why below. (It should be noted that this is based on the English in KJV).

It is all about before salvation and a step wise path to salvation

***Reacp: All  ‘it was so’  and ‘it was good’ statements apply literally, but also, in similitude all apply in the KRM but are ‘slanted’ to reveal the effects on our ‘living soul’ in the second ‘it was good’ statement. Before and after a path to salvation by Jesus Christ***

(Note, ‘it was so’ can, in the English at any rate, mean ‘it was carried out’ or ‘it used to be so’ or both simultaneous;y).

In the literal plain text, herbs are classed as a ‘kind’ in (Gen 1:12) but not in the previous Gen 1:11-a deliberate omission? Why? Explanation below.

Four of a Kind Prove the Metaphor (an impossible coincidence?)

As suggested above. all uses of ‘kind’ in the KRM are, I suggest, the triune God’s exalted ‘kind’-I also suggest, ‘kind’ describes our recognition of these divine ‘kinds’ and changes made by these ‘kinds’. Being in God’s family makes us able to recognise/be a part of  His ‘kind’?

On day 3,  (Genesis 1:11-13 ) God commanded for grass and herbs (both not described as after a kind) and a fruit yielding tree (after his  kind) to be brought forth upon the Earth. And ‘It was so’. I suggest the all ‘it was so’ statements within KRM  reflect our fallen state (it used to be so’) with regards to our relationship/knowledge of God and the ‘It was good’  our changed relationship and knowledge of God after the command is actioned. So, this fallen state reveals us not recognising Jesus’ divinity (‘kind’) (as the herb yielding seed within the KRM) but still hearing the voice of the Holy Spirit (fruit yielding tree) drawing us. (John 1:10)  (John 16:13-14) (John 15:26) .The ‘it was good’ statement describes the position after salvation, the herb yielding seed (Jesus as man) is also now recognised as God by the addition of the descriptive ‘kind’.

On day 5, (Genesis 1:20-23 ) God’s commands for  the waters to bring forth moving creatures and fowl. Neither are accompanied by the term ‘kind’, so, within the metaphor this is symbolising our born again gifts of indwelling and rebirth, none of these are recognised or used by the unsaved. The omission of the term ‘kind’ is thus, consistent with this statement applying to fallen man. See above as to why no ‘it was so’ statement is issued. The follow up ‘it was good’ statement changes to state the ‘winged fowl’, ‘whales’,and ‘living creature that moveth’ are now ‘kinds’ and hence the gifts they metaphor (our indwellings and other Holy Spirit gifts) are known by saved man. This is consistent with what is expected after salvation. Note how whales are ‘after their (plural) kind’ which is consistent with two indwellings for both The Holy Spirit and Jesus.



As rivers of water flow out of Eden so rivers of water flow out of the belly of our redeemed spirit -facilitated by The Holy Spirit

Genesis 2:10-17 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.  (Note, how the river now comes out of Eden not east of Eden. This would seem to allude to man’s own spirit and not The Holy Spirit in the metaphor but watering the indwellings-the ‘garden’).

The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;

And the gold (precious metal/splendour) of that land is good : there is bdellium (bedolah) (a fragrant resin) and the onyx (soham) (precious stones) stone (eben) (the same word as the stones of fire in Ezekiel 28). (Kerr describes the stones of fire as being inside God the Father, so this would mean something similar within our spirit and would satisfy ‘in his image’. Within the KRM. See below.)

And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.

And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.

And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

This is literal but also:

As these rivers flow from Eden and serve it and surrounding areas, so, rivers of living waters flow out of our bellies by The Holy Spirit’s action, the properties of the living water gifts are revealed by the literal meaning of the names of the Rivers: Pison, Gihon, Hiddekel and Euphrates meaning overflowing/increasing, bursting forth, rapid and  fruitful respectively.

The actions of the living water are given in the literal meaning of the places they reach.(Literal meanings in brackets)

Pison reaches or encircles Havilah (circle) where there is gold (precious metal/splendour), bedelium and onyx (precious metals and stones). Gihon encapsulates the whole of Kush (black). Hiddekel goes forward or east towards Ashshuwr (a step or an Assyrian}, Euphrates is only described with its name and means fruitful (perhaps an indication of  its prime attribute and the prime action action of the Holy Spirit in this metaphor).

lKerr has revealed more about  the importance of precious stones within God and also as gifts for us and they seem to have some other value or function as well as aesthetics including radiating light. lKerr has also revealed how the River of Life runs from the throne room of God (and does contain precious stones within it) and so rivers of life coming from out of our bellies is being made in His likeness too. The exact function of precious stone remains a mystery to me though? God gifts a precious stone within us at salvation. l(Kat kerr). The antichrist is thought to be referred to as an Assyrian.

So, with the literal meaning of the destinies and paths of the Eden rivers in mind it may be that the living water that proceeds out of our bellies is intimately related to precious stone ‘gifts’, and encapsulates and separates us from darkness and will confront evil and is always fruitful.

So did Jesus hint at Gap Theory when he said that ‘scripture says living water will flow out of our bellies’ ? (John 7:38) because I can find no scripture that does explicitly say that? However, the metaphor with  the rivers of Eden for the Holy Spirit/Jesus does describe it but the metaphor only really works with Gap Theory as Eden is planted on a remade Earth and The Holy Spirit/Jesus are planted in a newly born again Christian. There are more references to living water in scripture that Jesus could possibly be alluding to but not to the same extent and summarised here. Maybe Jesus said this just  for ‘young earthers’ ‘theistic evolutionists' and ‘day agers’ today?

Please note the similarities of the ‘typing’ in the metaphor as The Holy Spirit/Jesus are ‘typed’ by ‘water’ and one of the gifts they give us are our living waters. Like for like, waters for waters.

Possible Cardinal anatomy of a born again spirit?- (within the KRM)
Within the metaphor,  Jesus/the Holy Spirit are planted on the eastern side, of our spirit (‘eastward in Eden), the term used for ‘seas’ (yam) can also be translated as westerly, so our ‘seas’ (filled with Holy Spirit waters?) may be on the west. We know  that Jesus’ indwelling is also in the Heaven or ‘firmament’, (day 4) so, ‘up ‘north’. Our spirit comprising what Christ has made for us (all animate life) is in the centre with an overlap of the ground comprising our original spirit from God the Father and our new spirit- ‘down south’.Well, maybe?

Who did What and Why? Established Roles Reveal Parallels with our Spirit-

The Established Roles ‘Typing’ their Roles in our Redemption

The allocation of the creative processes in Genesis 1 reflects some of the specific biblically described attributes of God the Father, The Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ. Even though we know Jesus makes everything (John 1:3),  The Genesis account seems to, in some cases, omit this and instead attributes different roles to each Triune member.

1 John 1:5: This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

God is described as light and in Genesis 1:3 God declares light to come into being. I suggest that light floods in from the spiritual realm throughout the entire universe. Everything lights up. l(Kat Kerr).

Genesis 1:3: And God said, Let  there be light: and there was light.

------------------

 John 7:38-39: He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow  rivers of living water. But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)

The Holy Spirit is described as imparting spiritual gifts in man including living water. The Holy Spirit moves upon the face of the waters. Moved can also be translated as ‘brooded’ or ‘hovered’. This applies to all the waters some of which are later divided.

Genesis 1:2: And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved (rahap) upon the face of the water.

The Holy Spirit’s location is described in Genesis 1 as being over the face of the waters-in the atmosphere-(this seems to be the only time in Genesis that one of the triune God’s location is defined). The Holy Spirit is also defined as being in the atmosphere by floating like a dove, (Matthew 3:16),  being like the wind, (John 3:8), (Acts 2:2-4).  And being omnipresent (Psalm 130:7-10) (Jeremiah 23:24)) .

------------------

John 1:3 (KJV):All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

God speaks and the Word makes. l(Kat Kerr),  Jesus (The word) is described as making all things and being a physical realm manifestation of God (John 1:3) so, Jesus makes all the physical realm. God speaking and then God making seems to apply throughout most of Genesis 1 but why are some aspects of the creation presented as only being carried out by individual members of the Trinity?

Genesis 1:20-21(KJV) And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good

I suggest that, throughout Genesis 1 when the syntax ‘And God said, Let…. followed by and …’God created/made/’, then the second ‘God created/made’ is always acknowledging The Word’s (Jesus’) role in the process and the first ‘God said’ is God the Father declaring.

If that is correct, then please note: The Holy Spirit separated the waters but Jesus made the firmament ‘(raqiya)’ to keep some of them in place (a dual role in this process in the allocation of waters). God alone said let there be light’ and God alone separated the land mass from the seas. The rest is down to God commanding and the Word using the command to make/create. So, the Word-Jesus makes all animal life, the sun, moon and stars too.  Note: for day 3  (Genesis 1:12) the text just describes God commanding and the Earth bringing forth-with no ‘God made’. Why is that?  Is God stressing some aspects of the creation process to give us more information ? I suggest He is, see below.

This role allocation makes some similarities immediately apparent with clear parallels for each member of the Trinity and their role in mankind’s salvation:

God the Father lets light shine in Genesis 1 and in similitude shines light in our hearts and for our path. God the Father separates and provides the land for the canvas on which the (remade in Gap Theory) Earth is made and in similitude God alone provides our spirit from within Himself and this is the ‘canvas’ for our born again spirit to be re-made. See the main essay on this site. I suggest that, what ‘light’ and ‘earth’ do in making life on Earth in the Genesis 6 day account ‘type’ what God the Father’s role in our salvation is.

God declares and Jesus makes a firmament to separate the waters and hold them in place with a water vapour shield (water canopy) and in similitude the The Holy Spirit and Jesus give us spiritual gifts including living water and indwellings from both. (John 7 :38).The Holy Spirit provides the ‘brooded’ water and Jesus makes an abode for some of it. Both on a reborn Earth and, I suggest, in a born again human. The Holy Spirit is in the atmosphere in Genesis 1:2 and in the atmosphere as a part of his omnipresence while imparting spiritual gifts to man. I suggest the use of ‘waters’ in making life on Earth in the Genesis 6 day account ‘type’ Jesus’ and The Holy Spirit’s role in our salvation.

Jesus makes all the ‘new’ animate life on Earth, Jesus makes the firmament, the Sun. Moon and the stars and all life in the water, on land and in the atmosphere and in similitude Jesus makes us new-‘born again’ and is a light for the world and a light for our life. I suggest the use of ‘firmament, the Sun ,Moon and stars and all animate life in the sea, air and land in making life on Earth in the Genesis 6 day account ‘type’ Jesus’ role in our salvation.

As the triune God does for life on planet Earth (a kosmos) they seem to do the same for our saved spirit ?

The  Original Creations

Remaking the Creations

The creation and condition of  the original life on Earth in Gap Theory reflects  pre-fallen Adam’s spirit

Genesis 1:1  In the beginning God created the heaven (samayin) and the earth.(eres)

This is literal but also: as a perfect world is created, so, in similitude, God, also, initially created man’s spirit perfect without spot or wrinkle. (Sin free and living in the spirit . ll(Kat Kerr) ). More on the many similarities between pre-fallen man and the original created life on Earth in the similitudes above. Both are lit from the Glory of God from ‘within’. Heaven and Earth can be equated to a ‘kosmos’ within its literal meanings again as described above.  So, in the KRM:

In the beginning God created an abode for God and man’s living spirit and soul. The chronology is correct in the metaphor as man’s body is made first then followed by having his spirit breathed into him. (Genesis 2:7)   (The indwelling is placed into the body at the time the body is made according to revelations from Robin Bullock see below-man a 3 day job?-for more details) Also, the chronology is correct  in the literal as Kerr describes God creating the planets, the stars and the Earth in that order.  (See the main essay on this site)

Day  2:What God has done to renew life Earth, He will do to renew our spirit-the allocation of roles within the redemption plan and our new ‘living Soul’  Design

Genesis 1:2 .. And the Spirit of God moved (rahap) upon the face of the waters... Genesis  1:6-8  The command-And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters and The Command actioned-God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day

This is literal but also: as the Holy Spirit and Jesus provide water for life on Earth, so, Jesus and The Holy Spirit play a dual role in providing living waters for our born again spirit. (John 7 :38). The Holy spirit broods on the waters (all the waters. Later some in the firmament and some on Earth) and Jesus makes the firmament to hold a ‘separated part’ of the waters in place, so in similitude, The Holy Spirit will have a place within our spirit and Jesus will have a ‘different’ space within our spirit.  A whole new design, perhaps, compared to Adam

Please note , the firmament being called Heaven comes after the ‘it was so’ statement. More below.

Please note, the way the ‘It was so’ comes after the ‘making’  statement here in day 2 and this is different to days 3.4 and 6 where it is placed after the command statement. I suggest in days 3, 4 and 6  that Genesis is chronological throughout meaning the ‘It was so’ statement cannot apply to God’s command being actioned as it is not actioned until the God made statement. I suggest, it is a plain text and obvious confirmation of Gap Theory as it is referring to life/the cosmos in the previous creation. ‘It used to be that way’ in the first creation. Note the way ‘it was so’ is never used when the word created (‘bara’) is used throughout Genesis. ‘Bara’ is used for man and whales and possibly some other sea creatures and birds, all of which, I suggest, are not in the original creation. This is consistent with ‘bara’ meaning a new creation from God. And explains the omission of ‘it was so ‘ from some days/statements on certain days. (Genesis 20-23)  (Genesis 26-27) (Genesis 28)

Likewise, animals being vegetarians are described as ’it was so’. So, by extension they were vegetarians in that creation also. But  man also does not get the ‘it was so’ added.(Genesis 29-30) because He is not in the first creation. Much more on this below.






‘That which is natural and afterward that which is spiritual’, (1 Corinthians 15:46).

Genesis tells us two stories simultaneously-Emphasis, slanting, omissions and additions all point to the spiritual. Note, how God did not describe the firmament as ‘it was good’ unlike all the other days.   I suggest this is because this is a design statement, nothing has changed yet in our salvation within the KRM. I suggest, in the literal, He could declare His work on the firmament as ‘good’. A deliberate omission. This event would also almost seem to ‘fit; better as a part of God ‘separating land from water ‘in the next verse-part of the same ‘it was so’ statement. Likewise it seems to tie in with day 5 which has no ‘it was so’ statement but does have an ‘it was good’.  Also note. we now have two heavens and two firmaments. This is, I suggest for the KRM. Much more on the huge significance of all these points later.

‘That which is natural and afterward that which is spiritual’, (1 Corinthians 15:46).

Genesis tells us two stories simultaneously-Emphasis, slanting, omissions and additions all point to the spiritual and the KRM. I suggest there is deliberate precise and logical categorisation of plant life slanted to the KRM, why did God not just say plants? Why is water separation to land and water not carried out with day 2 water separation? Why are there two ‘God said’ statements on day 3 and day 6? The exquisite use of what we will call ‘double construct verses’-slightly differing from each other and within them  the different  application of ‘kinds’ all point to the KRM. Much more detail below. Double construct sentences (here)

God the Father spoke-the Earth brought forth.

The Earth brings forward designs ‘held’ within itself (shadows from a previous creation) , so, in similitude God brings forth man, Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit from within Himself (the three in one trinity). See below.

‘The evening and the morning were the third day’-darkness to coming light-day (time) #3

Salvation is purposed by the Father (the earth brought forth), accomplished by the Son (herb yielding seed), and applied by the Holy Spirit (tree yielding fruit). [3]

This may link with future parables by Jesus: (the mustard seed), (the sower), (weeds amongst wheat),  (the leaven) and (the heart of man).

Man a 3 day job? (Based on a revelation by Robin Bullock (here) see later on this page)

It should be noted that Genesis  2:5-7 may indicate that the creation of man himself  began on day 3 but was finished on day 6. Thereby, making literal the seed bearing grass as man/Jesus himself. I suggest (Revelation 3:14) refers to this. More later.

Genesis tells us two stories simultaneously- Emphasis, slanting, omissions and additions all point to the spiritual and the KRM. There are Hebrew words for sun and moon but these are not used as the word for light (‘maor’) can apply to both God’s indwellings as well as the stars, sun and moon. This is, I suggest, purely for the metaphor . Note, that we have two heavens and firmaments so, God can say he places a great light  and set them in’  the ‘firmament’ (the universe) and can also be setting them in the firmament our atmosphere (metaphoring our spirit and soul in the KMR). A skilful double meaning within the same sentence. The same dual meaning and ambiguity can apply to the use of light and darkness for good and evil. See below ‘entitled: ***double construct verses***  below..(What? The Bible says there was no sun in the first creation? Well yes!)

The evening and the morning were the fourth day-darkness to coming light-day (time) #4

God spoke and Jesus made.

Salvation is purposed by the Father (God said), accomplished by the Son (God made) and applied by The Holy Spirit  (a great light)[3]

----------------------

Day  5: What Jesus and The Holy Spirit do for new life on Earth They will do for our born again spirit

Genesis 1:20-21  And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature (nephesh chayyah seres) that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

This is literal with God calling back designs somehow held within the waters (shadows from a previous creation) to produce living creatures in abundance (nephesh chayyah seres). So, in similitude (the waters are typing Jesus and The Holy Spirit) God commands Jesus and The Holy Spirit to bring forth designs from within the ‘nephesh chayyah seres’ of Themselves-these ‘nephesh chayyah constituents’ giving abundant spiritual ‘constituents' and spiritual gifts/works/attributes to our spirit. Like for like-a copy and paste-a thumbnail-an indwelling. This is also consistent with man being ‘in His image’ as we share these constituents.

The plain text categories can cover all sea life, insects and birds.

Please note,, the way the ‘moving creature that hath life’ ( a part of a whole living creature) is in verse 20 then in the next verse it juxtaposes to a living creature that moves, as within the metaphor animate life is symbolising our spirit- when it moves it is within man.  I suggest that some of these copied traits or gifts manifest  as love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith (Galatians 5:22)  (1 Corinthians 12:1-11) prophecy, teaching etc.

Please note,also, how the fowl ‘may’ fly above the Earth, I suggest this is a significant word. This is a gift that may or may not be given and may or may not be used. I suggest the ‘may’ is referring to other gifts in addition to salvation. Some may and  some may not receive these spiritual gifts.

Please note, how no ‘kinds’ are mentioned in the first ‘let’ command but all are ‘kinds' in the second. This is explained in detail below. Note the plural of ‘kinds’ with the use of ‘their’ for ‘whales and moving creatures’ but reverting back to singular with the ‘winged fowl’. Plural in the metaphor is, I suggest, referring to both Jesus and The Holy Spirit and singular when referring to just The Holy Spirit- ‘winged fowl’. Something similar happens on day 6  where kind is in the singular when referring to just God The Father but plural when referring to cattle (I will show how this represents the two indwellings) on day 6.

This is literal with the waters bringing forth designs held (a shadow from a previous creation) within the water, known designs being called back but by partial use of the words created/brought forth, some designs are modified, some are whole new designs and some are unchanged. (the text allows for just ‘brought forth’ too) See the main essay on this site.

Please note the way the reference is ‘every’ living creature this is consistent with Kerr’s revelation that our Holy Spirit and Jesus’ indwellings are a ‘whole’ of them. (A thumbnail?)

On the third day Jesus rose again giving us an abundant eternal life, in reverence to this 3 days after the atmosphere and seas were made then they too were populated with an abundant higher life of fish and birds.

Please note, how it is now waters (and not seas). Seas, I suggest,  is an allusion to the part of our own spirit enhanced  by The Holy Spirit), so the waters  brought forth many creatures in abundance (nephesh chayyah seres)-abundant life. But as previously described, nephesh chayyah can also mean The Holy Spirit’s and Jesus’ own nephesh chayyah copied constituents/attributes given to us in the indwellings. Fowl seem to be another type of Holy Spirit gifts. Three different gifts are described (whales, living creatures and winged fowl) but only two different things were brought forth ‘moving creatures and fowl’. Whales are made from ‘nephesh chayyah’?

Note the use of created and made, much more on this later. Note how whales can be interpreted to be made from the ‘nephesh chayyah’. Note the choice of whales-the biggest land animal available. Note the way fowl ‘may’ fly. All give possible double meanings, a deliberate ambiguity. Why is there no ‘it was so’ statement in the first verse? Why is there no ‘kinds’ in the first statement. Note the changes in verse 20 to verse 21. I will show how these ‘double constructs’ all point to the KRM and testify to the Lord Jesus Christ. I suggest, the animal categorisations are again,deliberate, precise, logical and slanted for the KRM.


all point to the KRM. Much more detail below.

An extension of Paul the Apostle’s Metaphor in

(2 Cor 4:6)

KRM

Kosmos-Ruah Metaphor:

A prolonged metaphor within Genesis with multiple  logical ‘‘typing’ of life on Earth with our ‘spirit man’ (living soul)


God (the Father) spoke and Jesus  (God created and made) The Holy Spirit (the waters) brought forth.

The waters bring forward designs ‘held’ within them (a shadow from the previous creation) so, The Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ bring forth attributes and traits from within themselves as gifts to form our new spirit. Nephesh chayyah both.

Our spirit and soul anatomy/constituents are thus ‘in his image’.

Salvation is purposed by the Father (God spoke), accomplished by the Son ,(God made/created and applied by the Holy Spirit (the waters brought forth and ‘of the air’)[3]

--------------------

Day  6: What God the Father does for new life on Earth He will do for our born again spirit

Genesis 1:24-25 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, (nephesh chayyah min), cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so

And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle (behema) after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

This is literal but also:

On the third day Jesus was resurrected giving us a more abundant and eternal life, so, on day 3 in the creation account the land that was made to yield  vegetation  can now, 3 days later have a higher creation of man and nephesh chayyah animals.

As the Earth brought forth the living creature kind (nephesh chayyah min) with designs somehow held within the Earth (shadows from a previous creation), so, the Earth ‘types’ God the Father who brings forth our spirit (nephesh chayyah min) from within Himself (the lights of James 1:17 originally ‘wrought’ as a copy/part of his own design/constituents (nephesh chayyah)). These, He dispatched to us or breathed into Adam to make the spirit component of man.

(Genesis 2:7)  (James 1:17) (Psalm 139:15)  (Psalm 104:30) (Psalm 139:13-14) (2 timothy 1 9)

This being consistent with the spirit component of ‘In his image’-the triune God-our body-spirit-soul for Jesus-God the Father-The Holy Spirit respectively. In a second layer of this ‘in his image’ our spirit is from God and will be indwelt with Jesus and The Holy Spirit again like the triune God.

Gifts from God The Father-Gift that make us us

lKerr describes God The Father giving us all manner of gifts/talents- Sports , arts, wisdom, managerial, cooking and just about  everything imaginable. She also describes us as eventually gravitating to these gifts


‘That which is natural and afterward that which is spiritual’, (1 Corinthians 15:46).

Genesis tells us two stories simultaneously- Emphasis, slanting, omissions and additions all point to the spiritual and the KRM. There is much slanted towards the KRM in these verses. Why did the  ‘nephesh chayyah of verse 24 not appear in verse 25?. Why categorise animals with cattle? Why the change in which animals were kinds? Why are the cattle ‘their’ (plural) kind and the others singular ‘his’? Why do the cattle in verse 26 disappear in verse 27? All and more point to the KRM. Why aren’t animals blessed and commanded to be fruitful and multiply like sea creatures? Much more detail below. I suggest, the animal categorisations are again,deliberate, precise, logical and slanted for the KRM.

God spoke and Jesus made.

Salvation is purposed by the Father (God said), accomplished by the Son (God made)[3]

Three days in the making our body and our redeemed spirit

Although controversial, I subscribe to the view that Robin Bullock points out (here) that God placed the spirits of both Adam and Eve into Adam (as well as ‘knowledge’ of other animals) in our spirit and on day 3. More on this when we get to the Genesis 2 account below. But for now:


Genesis 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.

This is literal as man is commanded to be fruitful, multiply, replenish the Earth and have dominion over every living thing, so, in similitude mans’s redeemed spirit is commanded to be fruitful and multiply (help in the salvation of others), replenish (our spirit made from God the Father made formless and void by the fall/sin). This command confirmed in (Colossians 1:10)  (John 15:16).  As man will literally have dominion over all the fish of the sea (metaphorically-Holy Spirit ‘enhanced’ waters of our own), fowls of the air (metaphorically-Holy Spirit works/gifts/attributes) and everything that moveth on the Earth (The Holy Spirit’s  copied nephesh chayyah constituents) so, in similitude, they will have the power of all the gifts these symbolise (in brackets) (Genesis 2:19-20).

Please note:these gifts are all Holy Spirit originated gifts, which is consistent with our needs for spiritual growth after salvation being dependant on The Holy Spirit. Much more on these verses below.

Please note how in the first sentence (verse 26) man will have dominion over fish, fowl, cattle, all the Earth and all that creepeth but in the follow up sentence verse 28, cattle; and ‘all the earth’ are omitted. Again more on this to follow.

Please note, ‘fowls of the air’ has replaced ‘winged fowl’ from day 5 and is still all flying birds/insects in the literal but may now include angels as well as Holy Spirit gifts in the KRM.

-------------------


In the KRM Genesis 1 and 2 describe the triune God’s different individual roles in our salvation but the end relationships within these types does also. I suggest, define our end relationship with God, Jesus and The Holy Spirit. This is largely because of the subtle differences in these roles. ( A very skilfully produced narrative and  a schedule of works spanning two creations and all designed with our salvation in mind-incredible!)

The spatial relationship of the giver to the gifts in life on Earth is the same as the spatial relationship of the giver to the gifts in our spirit.

1.The Holy Spirit-The  metaphor describes the indwelling: The Holy Spirit’s role in the redemption of our spirit is ‘typed’ by what the waters brings forth in Genesis. The living creatures which ‘the waters brought forth abundantly’ symbolising,our own spiritual components from The Holy Spirit.  (A translation of nephesh chayyah in both cases). Working in reverse, these spiritual gifts become a part of our born again spirit. The original living creatures remain present within the water (The Holy Spirit in the KRM)-the water and the creatures side by side and intertwined. This reveals our indwelling relationship:The Holy Spirit and our spirit, side by side and intertwined  (this is confirmed with the trees being planted at the ‘side’ of Eden in Genesis 2:8-10) See later in this essay. A permanent relationship-an indwelling with The Holy Spirit in us and us in him.

Likewise The Holy Spirit is described as ‘hovering’ over the waters and hence, is ‘in’ the atmosphere, as well as in the sea. So, He completely surrounds all life on earth, so in similitude, The Holy Spirit’s has omnipresence around man’s spirit. He is thus, in the atmosphere, and  He is the originator of our spiritual gifts that come to us by the air.(winged fowl).

2. God The Father-The metaphor describes our origin and the ‘made one’:  God the Father’s role in our redemption is typed by providing the Earth, the role that the Earth plays in the Genesis 6 day account matches God’s role to create our redeemed spirits. As life on Earth reaches into the ground a little-into God The Father a little-but most is above ground stretching up to the firmament. So, sometimes our ‘life on Earth’ and God’s Earth are also one.  A kind of  four dimensional Venn diagram overlap when both are one-sometimes but not all the time. So, this relationship could describe a temporary ‘made one’ as referred to in (John 17:21). It may also hint at shared constituents within our origin. See later in this essay. See the repeated link opposite starting with  ‘one add one equals one.’

3. The Lord Jesus Christ-The metaphor describes the indwelling and ‘one body’: (In the KRM animate life on Earth is our spirit and Jesus makes all animate life on Earth).

Recap: I suggest when the syntax ‘And God said, Let…. Followed  by andGod created/made/etc then the second sentence is always acknowledging The Word’s (Jesus’) role in the process.

Jesus’ role in our redemption is typed by what he makes/creates in Genesis.

Like The Holy Spirit, Jesus is associated with ‘waters’ but in His case He also makes a firmament-(a separated compartment-to hold the water). Note this firmament is called Heaven in Genesis 1 and one definition of Heaven is an ‘abode of God’ and so is consistent with Jesus’ indwelling being a Heaven-an abode of God-within us. This would seem to suggest that His indwelling is different to The Holy Spirit’s. As well as being adjacent to our spirit (like The Holy Spirit), Jesus is also somehow compartmentalised in His indwelling. He was still brought  forth with the ‘waters bringing forth’ but seems not to be as ‘intertwined’. Note, the waters brought forth not the seas, the waters includes Jesus being presented by The Holy Spirit, the seas are, I suggest,  the ‘new’ enhanced living waters in man.

Jesus also has other relationships with man.  He also made/created  all animate life that the Earth/waters brought forth as well. Jesus’ role in making all this animate life makes Him typed as this animate life too. This leads to the different relationship, so within the KRM animate life represents both our spirit and spiritual gifts, components and attributes and also  represents The Lord Jesus Christ . Both one and the same and permanently so. This would seem to be a confirmation of the redeemed being one body in Christ and ‘in his image’.







Genesis 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 (akla)

This is literal and describes that man will be a vegetarian, so, in similitude, it will describe what our spirit man needs for ‘food’ also. Note how the grass of (Genesis 1:12-13) is missing which is consistent with it referring to non saved humans in the KRM, as they have no role in  the redeemed’s spiritual growth (meat);

  1. Please note :  the change from how the herb ‘yielding’ seed of (Genesis 1:12-13)  becomes now a herb ‘bearing’ seed. And there are many of them across the whole Earth. The former is Jesus the seed ‘yielder’ and  the latter all saved people (both men-herbs) As man will need herb bearing seeds for food so our redeemed spirit will need Christian fellowship for our spiritual growth. (‘meat’) (Romans 12:43) (1 Corinthians 14:26).
  2. Please note : how ‘the tree yielding fruit whose seed is/was in itself’ is now a tree that has fruit of a ‘tree yielding seed’.  I suggest this ‘tree yielding seed’ is a broader category of ‘tree’ as all the triune God can be considered as ‘seed yielders’. So,  what does that include? Remember, trees seem to symbolise the divine/spiritual realm beings or entities (and educational supervisors in Eden ) and it does mention every tree-so there is now more than one tree. So, the ‘fruit of a tree’ is, I suggest, now what the previous ‘trees yielding seed’ has produced.(God the Father, Jesus and The Holy Spirit have produced) Therefor, now meaning these ‘trees’ include all Holy Spirit lead scripture interpretation (John 16:13-14) too and  Jesus and God the Father as presented by The Holy Spirit and Holy Spirit inspired discernment of right and wrong and other teachings. These same trees are used again with a similar metaphor in the Garden of Eden (more below). So, as man will have to be vegetarian at this point and will need to eat the seed bearing Herbs and fruit of these trees yielding seed (Genesis 1:12-13), so, in similitude, all of these trees as described above are needed for spiritual growth (Meat). (1 Corinthians 10:3)  (John 6:48). (2 Timothy 3:16-17). (1 Peter 2:2).

Kosmos-Ruah Metaphor:

A prolonged metaphor within Genesis  with logical ‘typing’ of life on Earth with our ‘spirit man’ (living soul)

Food for both creations


The condition of the judged life on Earth in Gap Theory reflects man’s judged spirit

Genesis 1:2 …the earth was without form (tohu), and void (bohu) and darkness was upon the face of the deep (tehom)…

This is literal but also: as the surface of the first creation on Earth and all life on that Earth falls into a satanically induced  judgment of death and darkness, so, in similitude, Adam’s spirit has a satanically induced fall, dies and is judged-darkness and a spiritual death follow (‘tehom’ can also mean just ‘deep places’). Waters being a repeating metaphor in scripture for our spiritual gifts and a part of our spirit. (John 4:10) (John 7:38-39), All are in darkness. (Genesis 2:17)

I believe these waters were frozen (see the main essay on this site) (Job.37:10,+comment), (Job.38:30,+comment),  so, in similitude, our spiritual gifts are ‘frozen’ after the fall too. I suspect more can be gained about our fallen ‘spirit man’ from the meanings of ‘tohu’, ‘bohu’ and ‘tehom’.

Please note, the creation is completed/finished, as ‘created’ is in the past tense.

Please note the way God does not say there is a long time gap between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2, which Gap Theory demands. Here is why:

‘That which is natural and afterward that which is spiritual’, (1 Corinthians 15:46).

Genesis tells us two stories simultaneously-Emphasis, slanting, omissions and additions all point to the spiritual and the KRM.. I suggest every single word of Genesis 1 and 2 is literal but also every single word is ‘in’ the KRM too. If God added a few million years to this account to describe the ‘gap’, it would invalidate the metaphor as Adam’s fall is soon after his creation. I suggest this is why God omits it from the text. A selective omission. This answers the commonly asked question as to why Genesis does not describe a Gap and the reason is so that God can testify to the Lord Jesus Christ within the KRM. The same slanting is. I believe, throughout the whole of Genesis 1 and 2-all testifying of the Lord Jesus Christ.

‘That which is natural and afterward that which is spiritual’, (1 Corinthians 15:46).

Genesis tells us two stories simultaneously- Emphasis, slanting, omissions and additions all point to the spiritual and the KRM. A deliberate use of a possible double meaning of ‘ereb’ and ‘boqer’ to mean either darkness (and evil) and lightness (and goodness) is. I suggest, employed in this passage and at the end of all the other days. This explains why God did not just use the word day? Why does this passage not have an ‘it was so’ statement? Why was light  just ‘was’ and not created/made. Very precise answers to follow.


Genesis 1:2 ..And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

The whole of Genesis 1 and 2 is chronological both literally and within the metaphor and as Genesis starts with The Holy Spirit brooding on the  judged waters, so, our salvation starts with The Holy Spirit working on us, on our ‘waters’-putting a conviction within us of our need of a saviour. (John 16:8)

Day  1:What God does for a desolate life on Earth, He will do for the spirit of the post-fallen man .

Genesis 1:3-4  And 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.

2 Corinthians 4:6

For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

***So, Paul the apostle new of the parallelism between Genesis 1:3 and our salvation process but is the metaphor extendible? Yes it is, I suggest, very, very much so, every single word and all to be described here !***

This is literal but also: as God shines light onto the surface of Earth-but there is now darkness and light, so in similitude, God shines a light upon our spirit (and lights up a path for our spirit  to go) but there is some darkness and some light (good divided and discerned from bad) in our post-fallen spirit /soul. (2 Corinthians 4:6)  (Psalm 18:28 )  (Psalm 27:1), This applies to Adam after the fall and all mankind until redeemed. This contrasts with the original first world  where light is pervasive with no shadowing and parallels Adam’s pre-fallen spirit which has no darkness (sin). See above

God the Father alone spoke.-God purposes our salvation.  God  gives us our spirit made from light ll(Kat Kerr) ). God leads our fallen spirit to walk in light. God designs our salvation.

This light of day 1 is from the spiritual dimension, three days later, the light of day 4 will be from the physical dimension (the Sun and Moon), in similitude, the light for our spirit is initially from God in the spiritual dimension, 3 days after Christ's death -Christ's resurrection and after salvation we have a light from Jesus Christ set in our spirit-a physical realm version of God’s light.

Genesis 1:5 ‘And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening (ereb) and the morning (boqer) were the first day. (Yom).

Much has been written about the meaning and time span of these ‘days’. I take the position that they mean a literal 24 hour day and also possibly a declining entropy statement. There is, however, a clear meaning within established translations that ties in with the KRM: The first part of the verse links darkness (evil) with night and light (good) with day. Using this the actual ‘day’ sentence can thus, within established meanings (opposite) be translated: ‘And the evening (night) and the morning (coming daylight) were the first day’. Combining the two, then ‘darkness and coming light’ would seem to be a valid translation. This corresponds with KRM describing our stepwise path to salvation from darkness and into the light for each and every day.

‘The evening and the morning were the first day’-darkness and coming light-day(or time) #1.

Gap proof? If the metaphor is true there must be a previous creation.

The Holy Spirit/Jesus  and Eden

God said… God made

=

God the Father said….The Word (Jesus) made

(Throughout Genesis 1)

‘Genesis tells us two stories simultaneously

Remaking Life on Earth

Remaking our fallen spirit

Gap Theory confirmation Because the whole of Genesis 1 and 2 are within this metaphor, it means the references to our spirit before and after man’s fall must also have a  previously created  and fallen world too

A beautifully crafted passage

‘That which is natural and afterward that which is spiritual’, (1 Corinthians 15:46).The text slanted to reveal much New Testament doctrine. I suggest there would be easier ways to describe man as a vegetarian than this, its all about the second meaning?

Salvation is purposed by the Father, accomplished by the Son (He made the seed bearers ) and applied by the Holy Spirit (with fruit of fruit trees the triune God  have made). [3]

Genesis 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 .

Please note, I believe the omission of  the grasses and  trees of Genesis 1:12-13 from this statement is significant and almost  seem to render it  more with regard to the metaphor than the plain text meaning, as clearly it would be expected that in the plain meaning-at least some beasts and fowls would eat food from trees and grasses but these are not mentioned.

This is literal, as all the the categories  can represent all animal life and they will all be vegetarian, but also, in similitude, all within the metaphor represent  gifts/works/attributes. ‘Beast of the Earth’-gifts from God the Father ,given at birth and additional to our  base spirit ‘man’. Fowl of the air-gifts/works/attributes from The Holy Sprit and now in us and The Holy Spirit working on us. Everything that creepeth-constituents gifts from The Holy Spirit. The green herb-not quite seed bearing yet?-a logical reference to the unsaved or nearly saved man and this unsaved will be for meat. Meaning these gifts of The Holy Spirit will work on the unsaved spirit of man (green herb). That is their ‘meat’. Note how ‘cattle’ (Jesus’ gift as a sacrifice) is missing. Salvation is achieved by Jesus and applied by The Holy Spirit. This verse confirms this application.

Please note, there are 4 things described in Genesis 1:30-‘beasts of the earth’, ‘fowls of the air’, ‘every thing that creepeth’ and ‘where in is life’, and these match with the first proclamations of what God/the waters will bring forth(day 5 and 6 combined)-‘beasts of the earth’, ‘fowl’, ‘moving creature/creeping thing’ and ‘living creature’. The same happens with (Genesis 2:19-20). More on day 6 below. These 4 constituents, thus,  being repeated 3 times and more below.

Please note that with the use of ‘every’ within the text could be referring simultaneously  ‘beasts of the earth’ in man and from God the Father ,also,  ‘fowls of the air’,  in man  and from The Holy Spirit so both working on the unsaved man-man and God. Also, the use of ‘every’ for ‘herbs’(man) could  mean every single man is ‘approached’ and this could contradict the TULIP ‘elect only approached’ doctrine.





The Indwellings prophesied,  described and  revealed

 (Which verses are double constructs? Here)

The Strange Syntax-all to testify of Christ

‘That which is natural and afterward that which is spiritual’, (1 Corinthians 15:46).The text is slanted to reveal much New Testament doctrine.

As previously mentioned with regards to the slanting of the text for the metaphor within Genesis 1 then it becomes apparent that Genesis 2 does exactly the same. In fact, this author has found that Genesis becomes much easier to understand in  both chapters once the metaphor Is grasped.

All of this ‘slanting’ of  Genesis 1 and 2 seems a bit unusual otherwise. ‘A tree whose seed is in itself’ seems a strange term? What actually is such a tree? Although, I believe there are literally such trees brought forth on day 3 (Aren’t all trees in this category anyway?). The unusual wording seems to make more sense in the metaphor..

The same strange missing out of certain foodstuffs from Genesis 29-30, and the lack of the word ‘kind’ attached to grass and other categories ‘brought forth’ in days 3, 5 and 6 also seem almost metaphor prioritised. Once the metaphor is discovered I get the distinct feeling that the bulk of the text almost prioritises that and not the plain meaning. But the text still holds for both the literal and the metaphor in both constructs of the sentence.

Awesome.

Likewise, the whole Idea of the strange rivers in Genesis 2 (that seem to have an unusual river source and start as full rivers and split into 4) and their pathways to areas of precious stones/metals and different destinations seems a strange inclusion. What has that got to do with anything? But with the metaphor of The Holy Spirit and the Garden of Eden it almost appears that this is the prime reason for their inclusion too. (I suspect there is much more to these rivers). The metaphor answers why God apparently placed man in the garden of Eden twice? Why he used the word ‘help meet’ to start with then changed it to wife and woman?

Why was Eden made to grow and not just fully formed plants as per the rest of the creation? The KRM answers all of these and more.

Why do waters and land bring forth creatures why not just say they were created or made? The subtle change from ‘beasts’ of the ‘earth’ to ‘field’ . The elegant dual use of ‘nephesh chayyah’ and the omission or addition of certain words in the follow up action description after the command. The use of established double meanings all backed up elsewhere in scripture.The selective use  ‘it was so’ and ‘it was good’ statements, all to me point to an underlying remez and truly amazing craft in deliverering it

All point to the KRM and Gap theory and all testify of Jesus Christ-a sure confirmation of their validity?

Juggling and Juxtapositioning of Kosmoses (see The Foundation of the World on this site here)

There are ties between the Genesis 1 and Genesis 2 account of  creation with the term ‘The Foundation of the World’ (FOTW) (a translation of ‘katabole kosmos’  see in the margin opposite)-these make for an extremely provocative link. I suggest, the FOTW is:


See the ‘Foundation of the World’ and ‘eons of no time’ on this site for this in more detail.(here).and (here).

All three events are breaking down and re-reestablishing (katabole kosmos) and hence support Gap Theory as it indicates that Genesis days 1-6 must be that type of event too.

There really are not words to describe how big our God is or the majesty and beauty of His scripture.

The Bible has several meanings to the word light (both figuratively and literally): e.g. light as opposed to darkness or righteousness and goodness or a ‘light of life’, and others summarised (here).  But also, I suggest another less considered option should be born in mind-concerning the phrase ‘God is light’ (1 John 1:5). It does, I believe, mean that a literal part of His constituents is light itself (as is our spirit made of light, as revealed by lKat Kerr)). To complicate matters, scripture may mean several of these at the same time even in the plain text. Likewise, darkness/night is linked with sin.

***Yet more proof of Gap Theory?***

In plain text too!

Summary of ‘it was so’  (here)


The evidence for a prolonged metaphor is overwhelming and all points to Gap Theory! So, God carried out two staggeringly beautiful creations and all scheduled with the redemptive plan and Jesus’ role in mind? Awesome and some.

Every single verse in Genesis 1 and most of Genesis 2  describe our redemption and much of the New Testament. Working in reverse to this essay -the strength of the evidence for Gap Theory lies in that it is ‘every’ single word/verse in these two chapters. If every sentence applies then this means that , like our spirit shows two generations in (Genesis 2:4), then, so must the life on Earth have had. As our spirit was initially perfect and was judged , so must life on Earth have been (Genesis 1:1-2), As God The Father, Jesus and The Holy Spirit brought forth attributes from within themselves for our spirit, so must the ‘earth’ and the ‘waters’ somehow have held a design within themselves (a shadow from a previous creation) to bring forth.

Oh, how I wish the Christian Community would unite around Gap Theory! The collapse of the theory of evolution would, I think, very soon follow.

I  cringe when I hear ‘young earthers’ try and explain why there are no human fossils before the Cenozoic, likewise, when ‘theistic evolutionists’ and ‘day agers’ juggle and stretch the Genesis 6 day order of things and avoidance of the obvious meaning of ‘yom’. The non-saved and scientifically minded quickly see through this. Well, Gap Theory now gives an option that answers all the questions and it is biblical. And:

***Jesus Himself confirms Gap Theory and Gap Theory reveals the KRM which testifies of The Lord Jesus Christ***

   


This is how this logical ‘typing’ seems to work :Dual meanings

This might seem complicated but once you go through it, it will be quite easy to understand.-I promise! To summarise-what each individual member of the triune God makes will reflect their role in our salvation.




The whole remade life on Earth in Gap Theory metaphors the born again spirit in man. Born again life on Earth, born again man. There is astonishing detail in this metaphor.

God can only use the ‘vocabulary of that day’s work’ to tell the ‘second story’ of our salvation.  What He makes on each individual day will define how He can describe our salivation. For example, in day 3, He will categorise plants in a certain way, in day 4 He defines the sun and moon deliberately ambiguously as ‘lights’ . In day 5 He will use words that categorise fish and birds to tie in (‘and type’) with the nature of our indwelling and our born again spirit ‘anatomy, biochemistry and physiology’ and likewise on day 6 for animals: This leads to multiple logical ‘typing’ that is constant throughout Genesis  1 and 2 and maybe beyond that too:

You are about to discover how life on Earth parallels our spirit throughout the whole of Genesis 1 and 2 .You are about to discover  how the enormity of Adam’s original spiritual gifts may well parallel the size and stature of life on the previous Earth. As life on Earth was huge with dinosaurs and trees being hundreds of feet tall, then so were Adam’s pre-fall gifts huge. The second creation of Genesis 1 and 2 makes life smaller in stature as are our present day gifts?


Day  4: What God does to renew life on Earth he will do to renew our born again spirit


Genesis 1:14-18 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so,

And God made two great (gadol) lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the Earth And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.

This is literal with God ‘switching’ back on all the stars and our Sun, but also;

God gave his son and on the third day, when Jesus, the light of the world rose again to glorify mankind  (Romans 8: 29-30) so, in reverence to this, 3 days after light is let be, Jesus on day 4 makes the Sun, Moon and stars and they shine light and are glorified by it.  (1 Corinthians 15:41). A physical realm version of God’s light

You are typed by what you make in the KRM and as Jesus made the Sun, Moon and stars to shine light on Earth-what the sun moon and stars do for life on Earth ‘type’ what Jesus does for our spirit. So, in similitude to the sun and moon, Jesus becomes the light of the world (the light for all men’s spirits). After salvation, the location of this light changes from a light of the firmament of heaven (abode of God),to lights placed within (‘set them in’) the firmament, so. in similitude, two great lights are placed in our spirit  ‘firmament of the heaven-abode of God’. The greater light is the indwelling of a part of Christ Himself, the lesser light is the relighting/rebuilding of our own Holy Spirit enabled spirit. Christ ruling over the (day) light as there is no darkness in him. Our light /spirit ruling over darkness-our fallen and potentially re-falling self. Both can divide light from darkness (good from bad). More below.

(John 1:4)  (John 8:12) (Ephesians 5:8-9)  (Proverbs 13:9) (Luke 11:34) (John 12:35)  

(Acts1:7)  (Ephesians 5:14)

Please note, the way the word for great (gadol) is the same in this verse as Genesis 1:20 ‘great whales’- both referring to indwellings in the KRM.

Please note, I do not think the lesser light is the indwelling Holy Spirit in totality as He could not be described as ‘lesser’.  The lesser light-the moon (our Holy Spirit enabled transformed spirit) reflects the sun (Jesus Christ) in both narratives.

There is revelation that God may have created more angels at this time? (Robin Bullock about 34 mins in (here)). ‘He made the stars also’  although literal in the plain text, may allude to this in the KRM as stars are sometimes metaphored with angels notably in (Revelation 12:4).

A theological side issue-‘Winged fowl’-what are they?-more points to consider

  1. As stated above, I take the position that ‘winged fowl’ symbolise spiritual gifts ‘from the air’, (maybe included in this is the path to salvation too) from The Holy Spirit, but, verses Gen 1:20-28 seem to show how ‘fowl are brought forth’ to become ‘winged fowl’ in us and be ‘fowls of the air’ when employed. This is explained later in detail.

As well as this, there may be a connection to the Mustard seed parable mention of similar. It is contentious what or who these winged ‘fowl/fowls of the air/birds of the air’ may allegorise but it may be that they refer to spiritual realm beings (hence they can fly), so, angels or demons too.(the mustard seed), (the sower),

  1. They seem to be good in the Mustard Seed parable and evil in the Sower parable. I think ‘winged fowl’ may be different to ‘fowls of the air’ depending on their employment or not.
  2. The command  to let fowl (ofe) multiply in the earth (eres). The ‘in’ not seeming to fit in the plain text. How are birds ‘in’ the Earth? (It could be more appropriate if ‘earth’-‘eres’ meant ‘surface of the Earth’ which is an established translation). In the KRM the Earth would be ‘in’ God himself or in man’ s own spirit or in the whole ‘sea’ of everyone’s saved spirit. If winged fowl are gifts from the Holy Spirit, which is the position I take, then it could be that ‘in’ the Earth is where these gifts can grow and multiply if the ‘Earth’ represents man’s spirit/everyone;s spirit. It could also be a Holy Spirit perspective to be fruitful in the whole world-the sea of fallen souls.
  3. On balance, I think, in the literal meaning of this verse, ‘winged fowl’ refers to all birds and insects. In the mustard seed parable I think it refers to The Holy Spirit and angels. In Genesis 1:21. I think it refers to gifts from the Holy Spirit  ‘from the air’. Some of our gifts are given at birth others when born again and others ‘later’ It is almost as if the ‘fowl of the air’ is  an ‘added’ synonym in the ‘middle’ that tells the literal 6 day creation account and means like for like. So the term can mean either Holy spirit gifts from Himself or now working in us or both simultaneously. More below.
  4. The evening and the morning were the fifth day-darkness to coming light-day (time)# 5


Recap: I suggested that the ‘smaller’ creatures brought forth may be more like ‘components’ of our spirit and the larger creatures ‘larger’ gifts/works/attributes as per the initial key.

The waters brought forth (or created or both) winged fowl, this is literal as all birds/insects were created or bought forth but also, in similitude, the Holy Spirit brings forth spiritual gifts/works/attributes for our spirit from his location within ‘the air’. The Holy Spirit is defined as being in the atmosphere in other places in scripture by floating like a dove, (Matthew 3:16) and being like the wind, (John 3:8), (Acts 2:2-4), described as (rahap) which can be translated as hovering. Why the change from ‘fowl’ to ‘winged fowl’? Explained below.


  1. Beasts of the Earth-Gifts from God the Father (as ‘of Earth’ (of God in the KRM))-all of our character traits and skills initially given to us at conception.. Additional to and as  as well as our base spirit. ‘Beasts of the Earth’ can also mean those gifts in us too. A triple meaning.
  2. Cattle-Jesus (acknowledging Jesus sacrificial role-like calves and lambs and also, please note this verse is about our spirit so, ‘domesticated’ are under man’s control- living in man’s dwelling/shelter- thus cattle becomes a logical reference to indwellings). To repeat, cattle is plural-their kind’ -Jesus and The  Holy Spirit
  3. Creeping things- the Holy Spirits/jesus ‘nephesh chayyah’ attributes that are given to us on day 5 are referred to as moving, a verb of motion when given to man. In both days when they are commanded to be brought forth they are defined as a small animal capable of something and when in man they are defined as fulfilling that potential. So creeping things creep when in man, moving things move when in man. Remember in the metaphor we are life on Earth. I suggest these terms are synonymous but God is restricted to using the vocabulary of that day’s work. Much more below.

God spoke Jesus made.

The Earth brings forward designs ‘held’ within it (shadows from the previous creation), so, God the Father brings forth our spirit (light for light and like for like) with its added gifts from within Himself and also brings forth Jesus’ and The Holy Spirit’s ‘nephesh chayyah’. (From within the Triune God).

Salvation is purposed by the Father (God spoke), accomplished by the Son (God made), and applied by the Holy Spirit. ( One of the cattle and some of the creeping things) [3]

Genesis 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. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them

This is literal but also:

On the third day Jesus rose, and provided a mechanism for man to be born again (and have a new ‘higher’ creation inside man himself), so, in reverence, 3 days after vegetation is introduced, life on planet Earth gets a higher creation in spirit containing animals/man.

The evening and the morning were the sixth day-darkness to coming light-day #6

Day 5. See above.  

Day 6. (Genesis 1:26-27)-(Genesis 1:28) As above, but day 6 has two double construct sentences. Note, how in the second double construct ‘pre-salvation’ statement (verse 26) man is commanded to have dominion over fish and fowl (The Holy Spirit sourced gifts-including getting to salvation, I suggest: ‘dominion’ meaning a choice for salvation), cattle (gifts of/from a sacrificial Jesus-as-a-man and indwellings of Jesus and The Holy Spirit), all the Earth (our original spirit from God the Father) and all that creepeth (can control all other The Holy Spirit copied nephesh chayyah features). In the follow up (verse 29), cattle; and ‘all the earth’ are omitted. Replenish the Earth is also added. This is consistent with before salvation man needing the sacrificial Jesus and the full indwellings of Jesus and The Holy Spirit)

But after salvation things change: We need to replenish our ‘tohu and bohu’ spirit (the Earth) but are no longer needing the gifts of a sacrificial Jesus-as-a-man (cattle and ‘whole’ indwellings as we already have them). While still needing The Holy Spirit (fish of the sea-our spiritual waters enhanced by The Holy Spirit). (fowl of the air (The Holy Spirit sourced works/gifts/attributes),and everything that moveth (The Holy Spirit copied nephesh chayyah features additional to the indwellings)-all will be needed for our growth after salvation. All Holy Spirit attributes/works.

Please note, the  ‘it was so’ and  ‘it was good’ qualifications are missing and I suggest this is because this is dependant on man’s behaviour  and man is not in the first creation, So these terms cannot apply as he was not there. I think the word ‘subdue’ is referencing man conquering Satan and his operatives in both narratives,

And now to possibly, another double construct within these two verses which shows delightful elegance

And God (plural) said (third person singular) Let us (plural-the Triune God) make man (adam-not ha-adam) in our image, after our likeness……....So God created man (ho-adam)in his (singular) own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

Within the plain text, these verses testify to the Triune nature of God with subtle switches from singular to plural but in the KRM it describes what God is going to do for our salvation- before salvation-make man in God’s image-body, spirit and soul for Jesus, God the Father The Holy Spirit (different to Adam). The after salvation second part of the double construct-us being recreated in just ‘Jesus’(singular) image both men and women. (Indicating there is a spiritual gender too).The word ‘his’ being interpreted as both singular and plural depending on the context (2 Corinthians 5:17). Note how in the translation of the first verse 26 ‘adam’ is not translated as ‘Adam’ but man and this suits the metaphor better as it is referring to all mankind within it but in the literal may be referring to Adam alone.

Please Note, how there are two double construct statements in day 3 and day 6.

Please Note how these link together in the KRM only and not the literal. The first statement in each case refers to our spiritual ‘constituents’ before and after salvation and the second our ‘behaviour before and after salvation. This 3 day gap reveres Jesus role but also may be consistent with man being a 3 day creation which also reveres Jesus.

(Genesis 1:30 ) (Genesis 1:31)

Verse 30 describes things in reverse and what these gifts/works now need to work on. ‘Beasts of the Earth’ , ‘fowl of the air’  and ‘creeping thing’.  Note the  finishing ‘it was so’ statement confirming this is pre-salvation and this  also applies to the first creation in that these animals were vegetarian then too. What they all need to work on-unsaved man-not seed bearing- (a green herb). ‘Beasts of the Earth’- God the Father works/gifts/attributes in us and from him drawing man in.(John 6:44) ‘Fowl of the air’-the omnipresent Holy Spirit actioning our salivation with works/gifts/attributes ‘from the air’ and  ‘the creeping things’-The original ‘nephesh chayyah’ given to us by The Holy Spirit. (John 16:13-15) (John 14:16-17) . Note, there are no ‘cattle’ mentioned as Jesus has already achieved salvation for us and has no role in this actioning process. Note the possible dual meaning-simultaneously works from us and God/The Holy Spirit.




The New Testament confirms  6 different ‘types’ of relationship between God and Man and all are mentioned in Genesis 2?


John 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

1 John 4:13   Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit:

The Holy spirit: in us, us in Him-described in the second God placed ‘man in the garden’  (Genesis 2:15)  and  (Genesis 2:19)

2 Corinthians 13:5  Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

Colossians 1 28  Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus

Jesus In us, and us in Him-described in the first God placed ‘man in the garden’  (Genesis 2:8)  and   (Genesis 2:19)

Ephesians 5:30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones

Revelation 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready

Christians as one body in Christ and a bride of Christ,  (Genesis 2:21-24) . Note the use of flesh and bones in both.

Ruah to Ruah-6 different relationships-and all in Genesis 2

Please note the text seems to describe God asking for two ‘help meets’  for Adam ;

Genesis 2 2:18 I will make him an help meet for him and then after making selected animals the text seems to say there was  (still) not found an help meet for him.’ (I think using the term  ‘help meet’ and not wife/bride is for the metaphor as in the metaphor (which I believe is here referring to the indwellings of Jesus and The Holy Spirit,) they cannot be referred to as wife/bride. Where as ‘helpmeet’ is a broader term. Later in Genesis 2; 22 when the subject is reversed to man himself, it can be referred to as a bride (of Christ) the word woman is used as this ‘works’ within this metaphor and in the literal.

In the literal, God is declaring man is alone so he needs this ‘help meet’ and then makes some selective animals which do not seem to satisfy this need as ‘a helpmeet is not found’. So ,within this metaphor God  (the terminology within the metaphor seems to make more logical sense than the literal), declares man being alone  and needing company, so, God makes an indwelling of Jesus and The Holy Spirit (this time the indwellings in man and not man in Jesus and not man in the Holy Spirit as previous. So, in Genesis 2 :19 God formed (every-whole versions-thumbnails?’)‘the beasts of the field’ (the original spirit constituents given to us by God the Father and possibly changed by Jesus), the ‘fowl of the air’ ( the Holy Spirit presented gifts of salvation-including the indwellings). Note, when Adam acknowledges (‘sam and ‘qora’-proclaims or names) these they become known as  ‘nephesh chayyah’ (‘every living creature’)..

This first  request for an ‘help meet’ leading to the two divine indwellings to satisfy man’s loneliness.

It seems to not be enough as God declares Adam still needs a ‘help meet’. In the literal God makes a deep sleep fall on Adam and he has a wound to his side and ‘builds’ (bana) a bride who God  presents to Adam. Adam also gave Eve a spirit at this point. (Robin Bullock) So, in similitude Jesus dies ( a sleep) and takes an injury to his on the cross and  gives a part of his spirit to form his bride who God gives to Jesus.. (1 Corinthians 12:27)

The prolonged metaphor with multiple logical ‘typing’ revealing  much new testament doctrine on the nature of the indwellings.


More Scripture to confirm these points

 Genesis 22-24   And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.  In similitude, God brings man to Jesus

(To repeat: how Jesus’ body leaked blood and clear fluid-spirit and flesh-Adam gives spirit and flesh too. note the way this happens after Jesus’ death (John 19:33-34) )

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. In similitude the same terminology with (Ephesians 5:30-31)  for one body in Christ.

Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.  In similitude, therefor, shall Jesus leave Joseph and Mary and cling to his bride.


Instructions on what to eat and how to behave?

Note:No ‘it was so’ statements with man (or any created beings)

This text kind of confirms the KRM beyond any doubt!

How can the whole text be slanted towards a second meaning by accident?

A God of wild goose chases?

Did God not see it? impossible.

It has to be true?

A slight theological side issue discussion

One add one equals one here

 A timeless spirit man

Step inside love

The ‘His kind’ in Genesis is of the triune God- God the Father, Jesus or  The Holy Spirit kind

The plural ‘their kind’ is always Jesus and The Holy Spirit ‘kind’

*** ‘It was so’ comes before the ‘making’ statement, in days 3,4, and 6, but not in day 2. I suggest in days 3. 4. and 6 that Genesis is chronological throughout, so the ‘It was so’ statement cannot apply to God’s command being actioned as it is not actioned until the God made statement.  I suggest the ‘it was so’ has a different, plain text obvious meaning. I suggest it is a confirmation of Gap Theory as it is referring to life or the cosmos in the previous creation. ‘It used to be that way’ (in the first creation). Note the way ‘it was so’ is never used when the word created (‘bara’) is used. ‘Bara’ is used for man and whales (and possibly some other sea creatures and birds), all of which are not in the original creation so, they cannot be ‘it was so’ as they were not there. This is consistent with ‘bara’ meaning a new creation from God. And explains the omission of ‘it was so ‘ from some days or from a part of some day’s statements. (Genesis 20-23)  (Genesis 26-27) (Genesis 28). Any use of ‘bara’ will prohibit the use of ‘it was so’. Any reference to man will  also prohibit the use of ‘it was so’.

So we can see that animals are described as being  vegetarians and used to be in the first creation, so are described  ’it was so’ whereas. man is also described as being vegetarian, but now only and not previously because they was not there in the first creation and so do not get the ‘it was so’ added.(Genesis 29-30).

So why does  the making of the ‘firmament-water vapour shield or water canopy’ as it is sometimes called in day 2  have the  placement of  ‘it was so’ after the command is actioned  and not after the command itself? This is. I suggest, slanting the text specifically for the ‘kosmos-ruah metaphor’ (KRM). The ‘it was so’ still refers to the situation in the first creation-it used to be that way’- the first creation had a water canopy.  But also, within the KRM, it describes what our spirit/soul was like before our born again salvation. Remade Earth-remade spirit and soul. Here, within the KRM God is defining the new anatomy of everyone’s spirit and where Jesus’ and The Holy Spirit’s ‘placement’ within it will be. This appears to be different to Adam’s indwellings. The first command is still what God will do for our salvation as with all  ‘double construct’ commands throughout Genesis within the KRM.  So, this is before salvation and hence, even after completion of the ‘firmament’ it is still an ‘it was so’ statement with regard to the KRM. This text really is a thing of astonishing beauty-so much information!

In effect ‘it was so’ becomes a description of what the first creation was like. If we study day 4 and its use of ‘it was so’ and note the differences between the  ‘it was so’ statement and the ‘it was good’, it does seem to confirm Kat Kerr’s revelations that there is no Sun or Moon in the first creation. God’s ‘it was so’ statement asks for lights in the firmament-just lights, not two great lights and not the specific words for stars sun or moon which He could have used . The use of ‘lights’ means it can mean-stars, the sun and moon or in the metaphor our spiritual indwellings from Jesus and The Holy Spirit. Likewise, if God says two great lights it could mean the sun and moon and both our indwellings (and in theory any two stars?) But because God has chosen just lights for this first sentence and not two great lights it implies just stars. The ‘it was so’ is describing an Earth lit by stars and still an Earth with a day and night and seasons. But also lit by God’s glory as light ‘was’ in day 1.

Note, the change in the second or ‘it was good’ sentence, the greater light-the sun (Jesus in the KRM) now rules over the day and divides light (good in the KRM)  from darkness (evil in the KRM). Note also they are now ‘set in’ the firmament.  The lesser light-the moon our Holy Spirit enabled spirit) rules over the darkness (our still sinful nature) As there are two firmaments described in Genesis the phrase ‘firmament of Heaven’ can mean different firmaments in the literal and KRM. So, God can ‘set’ the sun in the ‘firmament of the Heaven’ that is outer space (set implies movement, so, it was not there before again backing up Kerr’s revelation). God can also set the greater light (Jesus) in the other firmament of the Heaven’-Earth’s atmosphere (which metaphors the empty indwelling ‘space’ in our spirit the KRM).

It may also be that with the use of the word ‘cattle’ in day 5 under an ‘it was so’ statement that the inhabitants of this first creation (angels not humans) had domesticated animals (pets and not to eat!) a long with their cities described in Jeremiah 4:26.

What a work of beauty! Two simultaneous narratives!

More on what ‘it was so reveals about the first creation (here)

 Day 7: What relationship exists with God and life on Earth also exists for God and our redeemed spirit, -This switches approximately 1800 years on ? (Abraham Covenant  to Jesus Resurrection)

Genesis 2:3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that ***in*** it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

This is no longer  a decree of what will happen in the creation but now addresses when the creation is complete and, in similitude, describes what happens to our spirit when the prophesied plan for redemption is completed and actioned, as God sanctifies the newly created part of the creation, so, he sanctifies our newly born spirit. (2 Corinthians 5:17)   (Hebrews 13 12)

God is now ‘in’ the creation as he walks with Adam and they fellowship together and He sanctifies this newly created life on Earth, so in similitude, God is ‘in’ our spirit with the presence of the indwelling Holy Spirit and Jesus with man a new creation in Christ. Robin Bullock gives a very provocative revelation of this very intimate relationship with God and Adam before the fall  (here) and our staggering gifts.

Another double construct Genesis 2:2-This is another before and after salvation double construct:

Genesis 2:2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

Genesis 2:3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that ***in*** it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

Genesis 2:2 (Before salvation) as God rests after his 6 days of work, so, in similitude God rests from his work of the redemptive plan after The Abrahamic Covenant (above). We can enter into this rest

Genesis 2:3 (After salvation), God rests from his work but now also sanctifies our new creation in Christ and is ***in*** this rest with us (by the indwellings). We can enter into this deeper rest too.


A new addition to original version  Oct 2022

‘That which is natural and afterward that which is spiritual’, (1 Cor 15:46). Paul defines the metaphor of Earth with our spirit and the text employs a double meaning of Heaven as the universe or as an abode of God- indwelling. Also, because there are different  ‘in the beginnings’  in the Bible then this text can be referring to one in the literal and another in the KRM.

God can only use the vocabulary of that day’s work to define our salvation process. Hence, the unusual categorisation of plants

God can only use the vocabulary of that day’s work to define our salvation process. Hence, the use of ‘lights’

God can only use the vocabulary of that day’s work to define our salvation process. Hence, the unusual categorisation of fish, birds and whales  in day 5

God can only use the vocabulary of that day’s work to define our salvation process. Hence, the unusual categorisation of animals

 God is ‘upon us’ when when being  saved  (indwelling/acting on our spirit)

Recap:An overlap occurs within the KRM where the Earth may mean either God the Father or man’s base spirit breathed into Adam or knitted to our bodies at conception by God the Father or both simultaneously. This concept itself hinting that our spirit ‘constituents’ are from God the Father. A copy and paste ‘in his image’. Everyone gets his spirit from God the Father. I suggest that when Earth is used referring to man in the metaphor it refers to either the whole of the ‘sea’ of every man’s spirit or each individual man’s spirit saved or not. The use of Earth as man’ spirit is very informative.

When the term ‘upon the world’ is used it seems in the literal to just embellish the text-plants or insects are on the Earth, so what?  (Genesis 1:11-13) . However within the KRM the ‘upon’ (al) seems to be meaning acting directly on our spirit-upon our existing spirit. Light shines on the Earth  (Genesis 1:15-17) and small things creep or move upon the Earth  (Genesis 1:24-25)  (Genesis 1:26-27)  (Genesis 1:28)  (Genesis 1:29-30)

But, I again suggest this is slanted towards the metaphor and gives  more meaning in the metaphor. Still, all double constructs testify to Jesus by defining before and after salvation parameters.For example:

(Genesis 1:11-13),,,and the fruit tree (The Holy Spirit) yielding fruit (Christ like behaviour and conversions to Christ) after his kind (the fruit will be in God’s own family-kind), whose seed (the redeemed’s spirit) is in itself, upon the earth:  

(Two indwellings described-The Holy Spirit has seed (the redeemed) inside Himself or perhaps the constituent to make an indwelling inside Himself  and The ( thus loaded) Holy Spirit is acting on  the saved spirit (upon the earth) … This is part one and describes what will happen in our salvation, note the way The Holy Spirit is gaining access to our spirit in the first part of a double construct with the use of ‘upon’. This is consistent with The Holy Spirit drawing us in, the first step to salvation, accessing our spirit pre-salvation. The same thing happens on day 4-Jesus shining light on our spirit-before and after salvation. (Gen 1:15-17)

Part 2 in verse 12- the ‘upon the Earth is missing and the word order changes so that the seed is now also ‘in the family of God’ as well as the fruit and so now is also within the ‘kind’. The Holy Spirit no longer ‘loaded’ but has given this ‘load’ to man.The second part describes the changes to the saved person’s spirit and  a stepwise path to this salvation. The mechanism of how the fruit becomes the redeemed-by the means of two indwellings-explained in a couple of simple sentences about plants! (1 John 4:13)  (John 14:17)  (Romans 1:13)


(Please note, Everything Jesus made is ‘God made/created’ in Genesis 1:20-25). God says in Genesis 1:26 defines what man must avail himself of and note how these two align themselves completely.  Check out the matching numbers ***Maybe see the yellow highlighted passages below in the same screen for ease of cross referencing?***

Genesis 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 (1), and over the fowl of the air (2), and over the cattle (3) and over all the earth (4) , and over everything that creepeth (5),  upon the earth.

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

(Please note, God describes  in Genesis 1:28  everything  man must do after salvation (The Holy Spirit-the waters) this verse aligns in categories with verses Genesis 1:20-22)

Genesis 1 28 And God blessed (1) them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply,(2) and replenish the earth(3), and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea(4), and over the fowl of the air(5), and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth (6).

—-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Genesis 1:20-22 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

And God created great whales(3)and every living creature that moveth (5)(6), which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl (2) (5), after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

And God blessed (1) them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply (2), and fill the waters in the seas(1)(4) , and let fowl multiply in the earth (3).

Genesis 1:24-25 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.

And God made the beast of the earth (4) after his kind, and cattle (3) after their kind, andeverything that creepeth (5) (6) upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good

—-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please note: All double constructs define before and after salvation, as does this, but very subtlety. God is purposing our salvation from a before salvation standpoint and defining what man must avail  himself  of, so, all the listings are after salvation conditions.(As you will note for the terminology used) It still satisfies the before salvation first part of a double construct.

Please note, In the literal this does not have an ‘it was so’ attached as it applies to man and man was not in the first creation.

Please note, This does not have an ‘it was so’ attached to it in the KRM as this is not applying to a pre-salvation state but is declaring what God wants man to avail himself of, so, the listed terms are after salvation descriptors.

Please note. Simultaneously, in the literal, these verses tell the story of man’s immense power and authority before the fall.

Please note: How ‘cattle’ is missing from the after salvation verse. Man does not need the indwelling after salvation to grow. He requires The Holy Spirit

Please note: There is no use of the word ‘kind’ or ‘it was so’ as these have have not been actioned yet but are just being described as what man should do.

I suggest all of this text is slanted towards the KRM

Genesis 2:18-9  And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.And out of the ground (the holy spirit acted upon  spirit of man-earth) the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam  (adam) to see what he would call them: and whatsoever  (qara)Adam called  every living creature (nephesh chayyah), that was the name (sem) thereof,

And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him

Man was made from the dust of the ground, so, in the KRM this means man’s spirit constituents were remade/reborn from man’s original spirit/Jesus’ spirit and The Holy Spirit’s spirit, the last two as given by The Holy Spirit.(Man’s base spirit originally was  from God The Father’s spirit too). There seems to be two levels of similitude here also:

Firstly, the beasts/fowl were formed ‘from’ the ground.also.  So, in the literal  they have the attribute of ‘nephesh chayyah’ creations. This should, I suggest, be considered with Genesis 1:30 declaring that all nephesh chayyah life needs man for ‘meat’. (Psalm 104:30)

I suggest Adam is not just calling the animals names but is proclaiming and justifying them in their roles and somehow Adam’s own spirit is involved and gives something in this process.The making and the naming going together. This is just touching on something Robin Bullock expands on very provocatively here.

Secondly in the KRM: As God brought forth ‘beasts of the field’ and ‘fowls of the air’ to man to proclaim and name (or accept), so, in similitude in the KRM, the LORD God  brought unto man kind the gifts and works they symbolise.

Please note, the slanting in these verses. It starts off with God bringing ‘beasts of the field’ and ‘fowls of the air’ to man, then says man will give names to  ‘every living creature’(though man has not actually named them yet). This ‘living creature’ is a different category to  ‘beasts of the field’ and ‘fowls of the air’ which in both the literal and the KRM contains ‘beasts of the field’ and ‘fowls of the air’. See day 5 above. It is only in the second sentence that  man/Adam actually then names cattle,  fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field. It is consistent with the ‘cattle’ having been made from ‘every living creature’ and that from a governance pint of view God just  brought forth the original gifts He gave to man  (beasts of the field) and The Holy Spirit’s gifts/works (fowls of the air) and the other ‘living creatures’ are given by The Holy Spirit/Jesus and not included from this LORD God governance viewpoint.

Please note, the similarities to (Genesis 1:30)

I suggest this is a governance statement of how the ‘LORD God’ achieved salvation compared to Genesis 1 30 which is more from man’s viewpoint but the categories match.

Please note, how this sums up concisely what is required for salvation.


Genesis 21-22 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

This is literal as God uses some of Adam’s ribs to make a bride, so, in similitude, As God does to life on planet Earth so he does for our spirit-so, God uses a portion of Adam's spirit also to form Eve’s spirit and his bride.  So, God uses a portion of Jesus’ spirit to form us and His bride.

In another level of similitude, as Adam received and injury to his side and gave a part of his spirit for his bride, so. in similitude, Christ got an injury to His side (on the cross) and gives a part of His spirit (to indwell us) to get a bride. Blood and water flowed from Jesus at the cross. Flesh and spirit came for Adam too.


Numbers of and direction of indwellings -6 relationships  (1 John 3:24)  (1 John 14:20).


Please note, man seems to be placed twice in the garden of Eden and hence, within the metaphor man’s spirit is also placed twice in the indwellings  

Genesis 2 :8 …planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed… Genesis 2:15 … took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it..

I suggest this references two indwellings of man’s spirit, the first is in Jesus as this seems to facilitate the waters coming forth (John 4:14) (John 7:38) (Eastward in Eden). I suggest the second refers to The Holy Spirit as we are are instructed to ‘keep and dress it’ which is consistent with us  ‘keeping and dressing own body ‘temple' (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)  (1 John 4:13) (Garden of Eden not ‘east’)

Two indwellings of man’s spirit-one in Jesus and one in The Holy Spirit



Genesis 2:20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him

Although, this seems repetitive as stating the same ‘name’ declaration as Genesis 2;19, this time it is no longer the LORD God who ‘brought’ them to man, but now the text is declaring what man must do (still the LORD God’s governance plan but what man must do within it).

This  is another example of the repeating double construct of before and after salvation.

Genesis 2:20 is literal as Adam gave names and proclaimed  all animal life that had a spirit within them. But the way all animal life is categorised reveals a different meaning in the KRM, so, in similitude man will proclaim cattle (works/indwellings of the sacrificial Jesus/The Holy Spirit), beasts of the field-(our born again status-all our spiritual gifts/works from God the Father, Jesus and The Holy Spirit, now in us), and fowls of the air (pre- and post  salvation gifts/works that come from a omnipresent Holy Spirit ‘from the air’). Man’s proclamation. (Matthew 28:19)  (Mark 16:15). In the KRM  this is all about spreading the Gospel- ‘the new testament revealed’.


Please note,how the categories used in Genesis 2:20-21(Beats of the field , fowl of the air)all seem repetitive with the same creature being repeatedly named. Every living creature would seem to encapsulate everything leaving no need for the other categorisation. I suggest this is for the KMR, more below.

Salvation is accomplished by the Son, and applied by the Holy Spirit. [3]

Please note,, how birds are now included (as made from dust) which may give more meaning to (Matthew 10:29) and confirm their nephesh chayyah status along with Genesis 1:30. Note how fish are not included (a lower life form?)

Please note,in the literal, the making of ‘fowl’ from ‘dust’  seems to contradict Genesis day 5 of winged fowl being ‘brought forth from the waters’ if that statement is looked upon as based on constituents/materials. But is consistent with Gap Theory as described on this site.-the waters bringing forth a design not materials and Genesis 2:18 is materials only.

Please note,it does bring to mind Kerr’s revelation that to have authority over animals man must be made of the same materials and design as they are. A duplication of our spirit/body constituents used for animals?Both man’s and animal’s spirits being ‘wrought’ from God’s own? (Psalm 139:15) , Both mans and animals bodies being biologically similar.

Please note also, and to repeat, the ‘size’ of our spirit may well be huge as one had at least 2000 demons in it in (Mark 5:13). Robin Bullock  (here) describes not just Adam and Eve’s spirits being breathed into Adam but  also a ‘knowledge’ of all nephesh chay animals and their spirits being breathed in at the same time (Genesis 2:7). He says this authority is dependant on faith. (Maybe, this is analogous to computer systems-man’s spirit /body is the operating system,  man has to have the same individual operating system as these creatures and the code is written in FAITH++! If it is to run the apps!). Biological similarity then being a must.


Creeping, moving and living (God can only use the vocabulary of the day)

Genesis 1:24-25,  Genesis 1:26-27,  Genesis 1:28,  Genesis 1:29-30 in the KRM,all describe nephesh chayyah constituents (moving/creeping/living things in the literal) given to us by The Holy Spirit or God the Father. So, The Holy Spirit’s,and Jesus’ nephesh chayyah being given to the saved and where they now reside-‘upon’ our base spirit from the Father. Note that the overall metaphor is life on Earth paralleling our spirit and, so, God uses a change of noun to verbs to convey the salvation changes. The movement conveying that life now ‘moving’ ‘in our life’.The ‘creeping thing’ (noun) in part 1 becomes a thing that creepeth (verb) when in our spirit. In Genesis 1:24-25, A ‘moving creature(noun) that hath life’ becomes a living creature that moveth (verb). I repeat again, that God can only use the vocabulary of things made that day, so I suggest that ‘moving thing’, and ‘creeping things’ are synonymous with what they represent but may differ in origin perspective.(For larger gifts God seems to stick with the noun for both, eg beasts and fowl). Note the way our base spirit ‘living creature’  of verse 24 is not given a qualification which is consistent with it being different in nature. Our essential ‘me’.

Also note how the waters brought forth ‘fowl’ but these become ‘winged fowl’ (gifts that can fly in the atmosphere-the flying meaning we are using them) after salivation and, I suggest, when given and used are ‘fowls of the air’ (birds flying) (Genesis 1:20-23).  (Genesis 1:26-27),  (Genesis 1:28),

Please note. as discussed earlier in this essay the ‘gifts/works/attributes that these terms ‘fowls of the air’ and ‘beasts of the Earth’ seem also to be defining origin too, the Holy Spirit and God the Father  respectively and the term can simultaneously refer to both as we use our Holy Spirit’s or God the Father’s gifts. Either or both simultaneously.

Please note. The way the term ‘beasts of the Earth’ does not change as does the fowl/winged fowl/fowls of the air which maybe due to the fact that this is our original spirit and ‘package’ of gifts from God The Father.


Please note, when Genesis day 3 tells us that when waters are separated into land and waters then the waters become seas and. I suggest, this is the same change referenced in day 5-waters within us after salvation become ‘enhanced’ and are termed ‘seas’. These can be ‘enhanced by ‘any living creature that moves’ and the gifts this provides the saved man with are gifts that are when used termed (in logical consistency) fish. (Genesis 1:20-23)..  (Genesis 1:26-27),  (Genesis 1:28),

Please note, a firmament was only termed a ‘heaven’ after an ‘it was so’ statement.(Gen 1:8) an there was no ‘it was good’ statement. (Heaven- an abode of God)

So, in addition to the selective use of ‘Kind’, there are  further ways of metaphorically describing the situation leading to and after salvation by using these specific terms:

Awesome and Some!

With that in mind Genesis day 6 becomes a thing of exquisite beauty as it defines the statement ‘Salvation is purposed by the Father, accomplished by the Son, and applied by the Holy Spirit.[3].in great detail.

For day 6  there are two double construct passages, the second is verses 26-28

The second double construct of day 6 in more detail

***Note, the way that  for  the first part of the double construct everything listed matches what Jesus makes in day 5 and 6. Note, the way that  for  second part of the double construct everything listed matches what The Holy Spirit does on day 5. Making this text testify to the Lord Jesus Christ***.

John 15:19-If ye were of the world,  the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world  hateth you. Here, the world seems to be referring to the world (kosmos) as the unsaved in totality.

John 3:16-For God so loved the world (kosmos) that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. The famous verse, did God so love the  plants, animal life or society that they would have everlasting life or was this world (kosmos) the whole ‘sea’ of fallen spirit/souls?

John 14:17-Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world (kosmos) cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. Here, kosmos seems to be applying again to all the unsaved souls who cannot receive The Holy Spirit.

John 8:12-Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: (kosmos) he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.  I suggest, Jesus was not the physical light of the physical world , the Sun was, making this consistent with world (kosmos) being a spiritual allusion.

Would The Holy Spirit let the kosmos-ruah prophetic allegory be there by accident? Have I made up this metaphor? Eisegesis central? But many of the ‘types’ are clear, apparent, logical and consistent. Has God missed it?-Impossible. Would God put it there to lead us astray- a God of wild goose chases? I don’t think so. Or is it there by design? It only works with Gap Theory.

It is both confirmatory of  future scripture, revelatory on the mechanics of our redemption and maybe, even opens up some previously less clear aspects of Genesis 1.




 


Recap: It should be noted that  the literal meaning of Genesis 2:5 describes a time ‘before’ plants were in the ground and ‘before’ herbs grew. So, on day 3 or before. Setting the time frame for the subsequent text to happen at this described ‘before’ time.The subsequent verses describe mist rising from the Earth BUT also God forming man from the dust, so these may, therefor,both logically be ‘before’ this on the third day. But we know Man was completed on day 6. It could mean that man was finished on day 6 but started on day 3. Robin Bullock here describes a three day process of making man by God forming a ‘cast’ of Himself and imparting some of God’s indwelling at that time, also establishing a blood/light covenant too and imparting a ‘vast knowledge’ within man at the same time. Then,  leaving him in the Earth for those three days and bringing him to life on day 6 by in breathing his spirit into him. Thus, providing a metaphor for Christ’s 3 days in the Earth. This also supports the KRM. The metaphor actually turning to reality as the herb yielding seed is not just a metaphor for Jesus-as-a-man’s but now man literally begins to be made on that day too.

This may be what (Revelation 3:14) is referring to Jesus as ‘the beginning of the creation of God’-having already confirmed man’s creation as the ‘beginning of the creation’ (see seven beginnings on this site) then Jesus could, logically, then be referred to as the same beginning as the first man, as the first man was made in type/similitude of Jesus.




Salvation is purposed by the Father, accomplished by the Son, and applied by the Holy Spirit.[3]

‘It was so’….’it was good’

***It used to be that way in the first creation…. ‘The new  re-make is good***

***This is what I will do…these are the changes it will bring***

***It used to be that way for our fallen spirit… but now the remake is good.***

On day 6, (Genesis 1:24-25 ) God commanded the living creature (our spirit) and beasts of the Earth (our gifts from God within our spirit given at conception) (both after a kind) cattle and creeping thing (not after a kind). ‘It was so’. This is consistent with the first or ‘it was so’ statement referring to our fallen self as we are intimately involved with and know ‘who we are and the gifts we are born with-not needing salvation for this knowledge and this is ‘in His image’.

The cattle and creeping thing (in the KRM-The Holy Spirit and Jesus’  indwellings/works/gifts/attributes) are not known until salvation so are not recognised as a ‘kind’.  The follow up or ‘it was good’ statement shows that now (after salvation), cattle, creeping thing and beasts of Earth are now all ‘kinds’.  All are now known to us and from the triune God and so are hence, ‘kinds’. Note how the original kind ‘the living creature’ is now no longer included and this is consistent with this being our ‘base’ spirit and not ‘made’ by Jesus.. This is referencing the change to our initial spirit from God. Note how cattle  are after their (plural) kind which is again, consistent with the two indwellings.

This study of the use of ‘Kind’ establishes the first or ‘it was so’ statement to be applying to the condition of our fallen ‘living soul’ and the ‘it was good’ to what effect the commanded change has on it.  At the same time, both statements apply literally- describing what was in the first creation the second more detail of the process of remaking them. Thus plants, stars, planets, fish, birds and animals were all in the first creation. Awesome

The same approach can be applied to the other days (with the same provisos similarly highlighted above for when ‘it was good’ or ‘it was so’ are missing).

A Repeating Double construct; What God does for our salvation is in the first statement and The Effects on our living soul of salvation summarised in the Follow up Statement In the KRM:

Day 1. (Genesis 1:3-4 )-God declared light ‘be’. Instantly light was and it was declared ‘good’. There are no changes recorded between the it was so’ statement and the ‘it was good.’ There are no changes to the immutable God throughout  man’s salvation and this seems to be a way of stating this with the modified use of ‘it was so’ and ‘it was good’.

Day 2-Day 3.  (Genesis 1:6-8)-(Genesis 1:9-10)-As above, I suggest the two ‘it was so’ statements of day 2 and day 3 can be combined-in which God rearranged waters and land masses. The ‘it was good’ statement differed from the ‘it was so’ statement in that the dry land was named Earth and the waters renamed seas (Our own ‘water’ component which contains The Holy Spirit ‘waters’). This is a new design statement.  This is consistent with the ‘rearrangement’ of what our spirit will be like after salvation and The Holy Spirit enabling/enhancing our living waters.(John 7:38)  All ‘it was so’ statements can be considered before salvation but days 1 and 2 corporately so- before everyone’s salvation.

Day 4. (Genesis 1:14-17) God commanded-Jesus made lights (non specific in number) to ‘divide; day and night. (You are what you make in the metaphor so the Sun, Moon and stars ‘type’ Jesus), Jesus is the light of the world- ‘it was so’-for the pre-fallen man(John 9.5). Salvation is revealed in the ‘it was good ‘ statement. Jesus becomes the light of  saved men’s life. (John 8:12). The lights are now ‘great’ and two in number and are now ‘set’ ‘in’ the firmament and are to rule over the day and night representing Jesus’ indwelling (the greater light) and our reborn spirit now influenced by The Holy Spirit (the lesser light) both ruling over our spirit and discerning good from bad.


The timeline of the KMR


Note, the way the timeline for salvation in the metaphor is in tact within Genesis 1

Three days later in the KRM

The same 3 day reverence to Christ’s 3 days in the grave is also consistent throughout the KRM,

Day 1- God lights up our spirit/soul-3 days later Jesus is the light of our spirit/soul

Day 2- The  roles of the Triune God allocated and our spirit re-designed-3 days later the indwellings of Jesus and The Holy Spirit.

Day 3-God  sends forth the our spirit, Jesus-as-a-man and The Holy Spirit-3 days later-salvation.

What are the odds of this prolonged metaphor being in the right order by chance?

It only works with Gap Theory and I suggest is further proof of it. As if that was not enough, there are more sequential and coincident timings to follow in Genesis 2 also.

** God made two Earths in a specific sequence that paralleled our own creation, downfall and salvation and hence it all testifies to the Lord Jesus Christ.**


On the third day Jesus rose again bringing forth a new abundant eternal life, so, in continuity 3 days after death  new  life also begins on Earth .

On this third day of creation the Earth (‘typing’ God the Father) brings forth plant life as a basis (and food) for the higher life to follow. Three categories of plants are brought forth. These three categories can cover all plant life. All three also, metaphor gifts/works/attributes for our spirit.(And food for our spirit In conjunction with Genesis 1:29). See below. So, in similitude God the Father brings forth mankind, Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit to redeem our spirit with each plant type representing one of these. In similitude and to emphasise  again, no additional creating or making is needed to The Holy Spirit and Jesus-hence just the Earth (typing God the Father) commanding to bring forth is enough so, just God the Father purposes and  actions this.

Grass and herbs are used in the Bible as a metaphor for man several times: Grass often likened to ‘flesh’ (Isaiah 40:6-7) (1Peter 1:24) and the repeating quote of herbs and grass for man: (2 Kings19:26) (Isaiah 37:27). ‘Seed’  is often used to refer to the redeemed  (Gal 3:16) (Gal 3:29)

  1. The Earth brings forth Grass (flesh), so, in similitude God will bring forth much flesh (the spirits for them)- billions of people and nephesh chayyah animals. Note the way the grass is not defined as ‘after a kind’. This seems to fit the metaphor better than the plain text. I suggest the ‘kind’ status is purposely being omitted. (I suggest ‘kinds’ in the KRM refer to the triune God-the highest possible ‘kind’ and also our recognition of it-much ).
  2. Please note, the way grasses are not described a a ‘kind’ in the  ‘it was good’ statement either. *Much more on kinds omitted and added below.*
  3. The Earth brings forth a ‘herb yielding seed’ after his ‘kind’ and in similitude God (the Earth in the KRM) will bring forth Jesus (as Man-a herb) the producer/‘yielder’ of all seed. (Redeemed) (Ephesians 1:7). Note the way the herb can also be seen as a ‘kind’ in the second ‘it was good’ statement but not for the first ‘it was so’ statement. More on that to follow-an absolutely beautiful and elegant way to describe Jesus’ role in our salvation.  
  4. The Earth is commanded to bring forth a ‘fruit yielding tree whose seed (redeemed) is in itself but in the second sentence  ‘brings forth ‘a tree yielding fruit whose seed  was in itself upon the earth’ but is now included within the description ‘kind’ and is no longer ‘upon the earth’   (1 John 4 12-13). I think this refers to the Holy Spirit ‘loaded’  with the constituents for indwelling (seed) in the former and then these given to man in the latter. In a way describing both indwellings. Much more below.
  5. The fruit yielding sounds more appropriate to the Holy Spirit and the seed ‘within itself’ sounds more like the body of Christ, but, I suggest both could be considered both. (John 17:21-23)  (Galatians 5:22) (John 15:5).  As ‘his kind’ is in the singular (unlike the plurals in verse 21 and 25 which refer to both Jesus and The Holy Spirit), I suspect this tree refers to just The Holy spirit. Much more below on this and the use of ‘upon’ too.


A ‘kosmos’ = What adorns the Earth

The  big metaphor key summary

(Here)

A logical extension to the KRM

God has moved the biblical text to one of interactive governance as described by the name change from ‘God’ to ‘LORD God’ and the same happens within the KRM. God seems to use subtle name changes to confirm this. This verse, I believe, ties in with (Genesis 1:11-13) which describes the action of Jesus (herb yielding seed) and The Holy Spirit (fruit tree yielding fruit) working  on man- the text thus describing a time before these actions can take place.

Please note the way it is now herbs/plants of the ‘field’. I will show in the next passage how the Garden of Eden metaphors the full range of the ‘indwelling package’ in great detail. So, ‘of the field’ is any gift/work/attribute given but not within these indwelling gifts as they are not of the ‘garden’ but outside of the ‘garden‘ and so,  ‘of the field’ (4). This will mean gifts from God the Father, or any gifts/works/attributes not to salvation yet.

Please note  that also when the earth (our base spirit) has been acted upon by mist (the Holy Spirit) it becomes ‘ground’ and not just the ‘earth’.  This  term is used for the rest of Genesis 2, Thus ‘beasts of the earth’ and ‘beasts of the field’ are thus, synonymous  but the latter describes greater intimacy.The above verses thus describe, within the KRM, that before any man can be saved (become a herb bearing seed-’a herb that can grow or a plant that can grow in our earth) and before any actions of the Holy Spirit presenting Jesus to man (herb yielding seed and fruit tree yielding fruit acting on man) The Holy Spirit (mist) must work on man (John 16:8)-put a convcition in our hearts for our need of a saviour. Make our spirit (earth) ready for a saviour (till the ground)

God;s rest: ‘a state or place where God rules and manages his creation free from chaos and the disorder of sin and rebellion’ (Ed Jarret, Christanity.com)

Why do the above commands of Genesis overlap in this way? Because:

Salvation is purposed by the Father, accomplished by the Son, and applied by the Holy Spirit.[3]

Day 6 is God’s purposing summarised in the KRM, everything ‘God says’ is God purposing.

Verse 24, God will send forth man’s spirit, and many additional traits and gifts with it. He will also send forth Jesus and The Holy spirit to give some of their spiritual attributes for the ‘package‘ of indwellings. Man will  not recognise the latter two until saved. Verse 25

Verse 26 God commands man’s remade spirit will be made in God’s image-the image of the triune God- our spirit from God the Father and indwellings of Jesus and The Holy Spirit. God commands man to accept and possess and have power over all that Christ has made (God made/created in verses 21,22 and  25)

The triune God remakes man in the image of Christ.(‘His’-singular) in Verse 27

Verse 28 God purposes man to utilise The Holy Spirit’s gifts following salvation (but not the indwellings as they are already given).

Verse 29 God puposes than man should use Holy Spirit and the fellowship other Christian for spiritual growth.

Verse 30  God commands man to use all its spiritual gifts to gain converts to Christ.

This is the end result, ‘3 days later’ of God’s purposing plan revealed in day 3.

Day 5 is The Holy Spirit’s Applying-Everything the ‘waters’ brought forth

The Holy Spirit will present to man His own and Jesus’ spiritual ‘components; Verse 20

From these in the saved He will make two indwellings and also give further spiritual constituent as part of this indwelling package . He will also give extra ‘gifts of the spirit’ to some Verse 21

God blesses these gifts and sends forth The Holy Spirit to be fruitful with them Verse 21. Note this is from a Holy Spirit perspective hence multiply in the earth. (In the whole sea of unsaved souls), whereas  Verse 29 is the same command from man’s perspective,

This is the end result ‘3 days later’ after the new  design of our spirit is laid down in day 2

Day 5 and Day 6-Jesus Accomplishing-Everything made by Jesus (God made/ created)

Jesus made/created the whole ‘package of our indwelling Verse 21 Verse 25. Jesus thus, accomplishes our salvation.

This is the end result ‘3 days later’ after Jesus is purposed to become a man in day 3.

Day 5 (verse 22) is what the Holy Spirit’s actions will be. Day 6 (Verse 28) is how man will use the Holy Spirit, Day 5 and 6 will define Jesus accomplishing our Salvation Verse 21 Verse 25. Day 6 (Verse 28) is how man should use Jesus’ works to accomplish this. So much of the New Testament is here in Genesis!!


As man must do with Eden so he must do with The Holy Spirit’s temple


Genesis 2:15  And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

This is literal but also: as man is placed in Eden to dress and keep it, so the born again man is placed within/adjacent  to the indwelling The Holy Spirit and man must respect this temple. (1 Corinthians 6:19)

Please note this is the seocnd time God has ‘put man in the garden, more below.

Genesis 2:16-17 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat. But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

This is literal but also: as  man can eat of these fruits except for the tree of knowledge of good and evil or he will die then, so, man can freely enjoy the fruit of  the given spiritual gifts but not all, one specific rule must be followed or he will die-,there can be no blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. (‘Eat’ Eden tree of good and evil) (Acts 5:1-10)  (Matthew12:32) and it may even give more information as to what sins against the spirit actually are. Robin Bullock likened avoidance of this tree ‘to tithing’. See the Robin Bullock links above. Kerr describes the unpardonable sin as  a rejection of The Holy Spirit with a full knowledge of Him and this may tie in with the word ‘eating’?

Whales: mammals in the sea,

Mammals adapted to a different environment

Mammals that spout water

Mammals with varied and complicated communication systems

Mammals that alloparent

Mammals with complex working together/synergistic skills

A geological record of an organism significantly modified enough to be termed ‘created’

Fascinating!
