Enter into God's Rest
William Finck is wrong again, if he thinks that Paul says that Yahweh is still resting since the 6th Day of Creation. Observe:
For he that is entered into his rest , he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. -- Hebrews 4:10
Contrary to what William Finck is teaching, Paul clearly says that Yahweh CEASED from the work of creation, past tense. After that day of cessation from the work of creation (bara), the 8th Day began. It is not an 8th day of creation (bara), it is the 8th day of formation (yatsar), as is explained by Arnold Kennedy below. Willaim Finck also falsely teaches that the distinction between these two Hebrew words can be ignored. I don't think so!!!!
Also, the Scriptures clearly teach that Yahweh is STILL WORKING at sustaining the Universe, but the work of creation has ceased. Yahweh is constantly at work, sustaining the Universe, so He is NOT resting from this work. This part of His work never ceases, otherwise, the Universe would perish. Observe:
"And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay Him, because He had done these things on the Sabbath day. But Jesus answered and said to them, MY FATHER WORKS UNTIL NOW, AND I WORK." Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill Him, because He not only had broken the Sabbath, but said also that God was His Father, making Himself equal with God." - John 5:16-18.
"Behold, I make all things new."
"For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath." - Mark 12:8.
Yahweh is constantly working at sustaining the Universe. If that were not true, the Universe itself would perish.
The correct interpretation of Hebrews 4:1-10 is that Yahweh ceased from the work of creation, and He rested (ceased) from that type of work. After that "Day of Rest," He turned His attention toward perfecting the Adamic Race, in Genesis 2. Yahweh has never ceased from the work of sustaining the Universe and guiding the Adamic Race through our historical course.
"My Father works until now, and I work." - John 5:17.
Hosea 2:18 And in that day will I make a covenant for them with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven, andwith the creeping things of the ground: and I will break the bow and the sword and the battle out of the earth, and will make them to lie down safely

‘RACE’ IN THE CREATION STORY OF GENESIS.
BY: Arnold Kennedy
In Genesis chapters one and two we have ‘Adam mentioned in the Masoretic Text, but not in the
Greek Septuagint of Genesis One. Scholars may not agree but early translators, including the KJV,
indicate plural in Genesis chapter one and chapter 5:2, but singular in chapter two. Even ignoring this,
we have a man and a woman [‘them”] being created [bara '] in Gen.1 before the 'Adam [singular] who
was formed [yatsar] in Gen.2. "Created" and "formed" have differing meanings. We cannot remain
honest if we try to say that "created' = bara ' is the same as "formed"= yatsar. [The same goes for plasso
and ktizo in the New Testament].
From the sequence alone there is no way Genesis 2 could be a re-run of Genesis 1. On a weight of
evidence basis, there is more to say that Adam [as we use the word] was the first spiritual man, but not
the first biological man. In other words, God took one man from Genesis 1 and breathed into him the
breath of life. “And man became a living soul”-[Genesis 2:7]. The word “became” is consistently used in a
manner showing the subject became something that it had not been before. Eve was the "mother of all
living" with God's breath, not of the others. This indicates that there are those with the Spirit, and those
"having not the Spirit"-[Jude v19]. The latter is the "natural man" who “cannot receive the things of God”-[1
Cor.2:14], but he may become very religious. What we believe about these issues in Genesis conditions
what we believe right through the Bible. From this we can see that there is no problem about where
Cain found a wife; it was from amongst those who were not ‘living souls’.
Because trees as trees cannot have the knowledge of good and evil, the trees in the Garden of Eden are
shown to represent human family trees. We can see this through Scripture in such places as Ezekiel 31,
“Behold the Assyrian was a cedar in Lebanon…..”. Then it talks about, “All the trees of Eden that were in the
garden of God envied him”, thus relating this back to the Garden of Eden. These were the nations in the
garden that the Adam who had become a ‘living soul’ was to cultivate or supervise. Without discussing
what “Satan” as the “Enchanter” or “Serpent” means, we can see a seduction of Adam, through Eve,
to divert to another purpose instead. We are not discussing here if Cain was a sexual product of this
seduction. We find both “the seed of the woman” and “the seed of the serpent”, and as it was then, so it is
today, with one seed hating the other and in no way have they now become the same. That is why
Jesus could say of the Edomite leaders of the Judean nation, “Ye are of your father the devil”. Adam comes
from a root word meaning “showing red in the face” or “of a ruddy complexion”, a description of part
of the white race. Even today the serpent is attempting to reduce this seed by racial intermarriage, and
to eliminate it by other means. The Churches have been seduced into believing that all races are the
same in God’s sight.
In the genealogy of Jesus the Christ, we find from Luke 3:38 , ”Which was the son of Enos, which was the
son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God”. We are told in Genesis 5:3 that it was not
until 130 years later that Adam begat a son called Seth “in his own likeness and after his image”. Neither
Cain or Abel or any until Seth, the sixth from Adam, are said to be begotten by Adam, and they do not
feature in the genealogy. Thus we have to question whether or not Cain and Abel’s descendants, and
any between Cain and Seth, are in that image and likeness either. If not then we have another division
between the races.
Anthropologists and other social scientists make the claim that ‘culture’ is learned behaviour acquired
by individuals, but go further in saying that an individual is encultured at birth, the culture being
transmitted from one generation to another. There is a degree where a child brought up in an alien
culture will adapt to the new environment, but the pull of “roots” never disappears. When a person
from a ‘non-Christian’ culture is “converted” to Christianity under the popular “born again”
terminology, it is not hard to observe that all things do not become new. When such a person is
removed from the Christian cultural area and placed back among the original culture, that person will
again manifest conformity with the original culture. When traversing between cultures, such a person
can be observed doing something like singing “How great Thou art” and then immediately afterwards
praying to the spirits of the dead! Ba’al remains underneath and there is the worship of God and Ba’al
at the same time. The consequence of racial mixture is a hybrid worship, and this God does not accept.
Where we find racial mixture, the culture remains within the heathen portion. It can be readily
observed even where the heathen portion is very small, that person will more easily identify with the
heathen culture or race rather than with the majority portion. This is particularly obvious amongst the
males, and it is also visible that those continuing to profess ‘Christianity’ in a mixed race situation are
almost totally women.
It is popular today to say that all cultures are God given and thus that God can be worshipped within
any cultural form. But, in the Bible, God’s people are instructed, “Learn not the way of the heathen”. The
word ‘way’ is given by Strong as “a course of life or mode of action”. This then is a matter of culture that
God’s people are not to learn. There are many examples in Scripture about Israel practising the ways
and culture of the heathen following association with them, “according to the abominations of the heathen
which the Lord cast out from before the Children of Israel”-[2 Kings 16:3 and 17:8]. As it is the Lord who did
the ‘casting out’, there is no excuse for any re-association with either the people or the culture. Further
on in 2 Kings 17:15, this is connected with rejecting the covenant made with “the fathers”. Rejection
of the covenant means being cut off from the covenant. Esau did the same thing, and we are warned in
the New Testament, “Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person as Esau”-[Heb12:16]. The profanity is
crossing a threshold or doorway according to Strong. It is popular doctrine today to open such a door
and to encourage God’s people to go through it. It is not difficult to follow the pattern of God’s
judgement following racial mixture through Scripture, but this is encouraged both within and without
the ‘Church”. Thus it can be seen that any apparent break-through following years of faithful
missionary activity is only an apparent breakthrough. The valid missionary activity is teaching the laws
of God and bringing the other peoples into subjection
