The Great Contest II: Enmity Between the Seed-lines
The next story interestingly also alludes to Cain’s strange disposition but rather than attributing Eve as being his mother instead cites Lilith as being so. Reading this story, I am sure that many of you are wondering whether there is any truth to the possibility that Adam partnered with Lilith before his marriage with Eve. It’s my opinion that the myths implying Lilith as Adam’s first wife are not entirely plausible.
The reason I say so is that, in these mythologies, it is proposed that Lilith was unwilling to be submissive to Adam while engaged in sexual activity with him. Rather than conform to subservience, it is cited that she abandoned him in the upper heavens, before willfully descending to the earth. In my research of Lilith, I can declare with a certainty that yes Lilith existed in Hebrew tradition as a demoness which attacked babies, causing their untimely crib deaths but that it cannot be proved that she was the first wife of Adam. I seriously doubt the references which are used as support to summarize that she was married to Adam before that of Eve and will explain why after relating this passage.
“EIGHT times since our leaving the garden had the moon become new, when a son was born unto my wife Lilith. We all rejoiced at this appearing and on the eighth day when I dedicated him unto Jehovah, I called him Cain, For, said I, we have gotten a man from Jehovah. Nevertheless, the countenance of my son Cain was not like unto ours, for he seemed to have the mark of the satans upon him, although this was not clearly visible to the outward eye. But I rejoiced in my son and sought to raise him up unto Jehovah.” – Book of the Generations of Adam 4:1
While this passage is interesting because of its reference to Lilith and that Cain “seemed to have the mark of the satans” upon him, however, there are few other verifiable texts which support the premise that Lilith was Adam’s first wife or the mother of Cain. Some proponents of this belief cite as source Genesis 1:26-28 as evidence that Lilith was the female partner of the first human couple as mentioned within those verses while Eve is not formed as Adam’s wife and helpmate until after his creation in Genesis 2:7.
“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” – Genesis 1:27
Supporters of the premise that Lilith was Adam’s first wife, lean on Genesis 1:26-28 as the crux of their argument to prove that a human couple existed before Eve was formed as a separate entity from Adam’s rib in Genesis 2:22.
I, however, interpret the above quote as being a reference to the creation of the Preadamite peoples which has nothing to do with the formation of Adam in Genesis 2:7 as a bright natured angelic being. As I have shown in my work and will reiterate in great detail in Genesis Revisited the last chapter of this book, the Genesis 1 account of the creation of humanity is alluding to what the Sumerians call the Primitive Worker whereas the Genesis 2 citation is describing the account of the creation and appearance of Civilized Man.
The difference between these two creations is that the preadamic humans were created in couples here upon the earth and told to replicate, multiply, and fill land where they were set up in residence; whereas Adam when formed had initially been placed into paradise as an androgynous being. Adam’s body was most certainly made of the dust of the earth, but his spirit was blown into and married into it. The separation of genders, Eve being taken from the rib of Adam, occurred in Paradise where they were living in tending the garden of the Lord God.
It wasn’t until they fell and their bodies were transformed into an earthly form that their descendants would from that time forward incarnate here upon the earth in either male or female embodiment. And while some may use the Genesis 1:27 passage as proof that Adam had a wife before Eve and that this wife was Lilith, I do not support this theory simply because as I show the creation spoken about in Genesis 1 and Genesis 2, are two independent stories and do not have any bearing upon one another. Besides this there are not are not enough independent sources verifying this stance is truth.
I do believe that Lilith is real as she is mentioned in Isaiah 34:14, however, the majority of the other texts which I have found which make mention of her are from untraditional sources. The Kolbrin Bible does make mention of a Leitha, as the first wife of Dadam. However, I don’t believe that we can in any way say conclusively that this is the way it was, and I’ll tell you why.
The main text cited as support for this premise is a medieval text called The Alphabet of Ben-Sira, written sometime between the 8th and 11th centuries A.D. Lilith, in this story, is portrayed as a fiery proponent of equality, fiercely independent, and said to be unwilling to assume a subordinate position to Adam when making love. She, therefore, refused to lie beneath him in missionary position and when badgered to do so, strands him in the upper heavens and descended here to the earth.
My point of contention has to do with the stories connections to procreation and the act of making love. For as I have shown in my research, it was initially unnecessary for Adam and Eve to involve themselves in sexuality or procreation until after their fall. While in Paradise, procreation was unnecessary as Adam and Eve were spiritual beings and did not possess human physicality. Their transformation into flesh did not even transpire until the end of Genesis 3:21 when they are clothed ‘with coats of skin’, for what would be a lifetime of trial before inevitably succumbing to death.
Adam was not even created until after the Genesis 1:26-28 passage describing the creation of the first preadamic couple ascribed by believers in this theory as the introduction of Lilith and Adam as the first human couple. The people referenced in Genesis 1:26-28 are the Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon hominids which roamed the earth before the creation of modern humanity and have nothing to do with Adam who wasn’t formed until Genesis 2:7 and then as a bright natured immortal being. He did not initially even dwell upon the earth but was placed into paradise to tend the garden of the Lord God. Neither sex nor procreation was part of Adam and Eve’s world until after the serpent beguiled them and they ate fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. It was after that event that their bodies were transformed into fleshly form when the Lord God ‘clothed them with skins’ and banished them to the lower earth.
The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage: But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage: Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection. - Luke 20:35-36
Ben-Sira’s proclamation describing Lilith’s defiance ‘I will not lie below,’ for which Adam said, ‘I will not lie beneath you, but only on top” for this reason just does not resonate with the truth as I have come to know it. The contention that Lilith abandon Adam because of her objections to his sexual advances would maybe be plausible to me if its premise were not dependent upon sex as the predominant factor for their quarrel or reliant upon Genesis 1:26-28 as foundation ascribing her and Adam as the first couple.
Among feminists, Lilith is recognized and honored as a symbol of independence, fairness, and equal rights for women. What feminists fail to disclose is that her liberation and determination to do it her way, resulted in her alliance with the forces of evil already banished to this fallen world. Her companionship with them led to her becoming known as a vixen of darkness, a succubus malevolent intent as she is now immortalized into the mythological accord as a killer of the babies and children of Adam’s line. Because of such alignment, she is now condemned and excluded from salvation like the other fallen angels and forces of Legion.
Abandoning Paradise, Lilith is said to have descended to the Earth where she consummated her desire with many of the Rebel Angels, Asmodeus first and foremost. Supposedly, missing his consort, the story continues with Adam’s appeal to YHWH to force her return. The Lord God is then said to have dispatched three angels, Senoy, Sansenoy, and Semanel to find Lilith and persuade her reunion with Adam. They locate her engaged in an orgy and the throes of passion with a plethora of demonic partners. Consequentially, spawning myriads of devilish offspring extending further the reach of evil in supporting Satan’s work.
The three angels of the highest threaten to massacre daily a hundred of her hellish spawn for each day she remained apart from Adam. Infuriated Lilith vows to take revenge by promising in a pledge to wage war on the seed and children of Adam and Eve especially the young struggling in infancy; should the three angels not leave her and her children alone. Having condemned herself in such manner, the three angels return to Yahweh and Lilith is left to maintain her dubious relationships with the forces of Legion. She liked them will at the end of days be brought to judgment for her activities here upon the earth.
Though I doubt the postulation that Lilith was Adam’s first wife and that they somehow became separated due to her unwillingness to assume a subservient sexual position, I do believe her to be a real entity. I do not support the mythologies asserting her as Adam’s first partner only because in my research I find that there is no requisite for humanity to engage in such activity until after our placement here upon the earth. Procreation and sexual activity are reserved for humans as a means to ensure the survivability of the race.
As I show, it wasn’t until after the fall of modern Adam and Eve that they took on physical bodies and humanity began to utilize the Lord God-given ability to procreate which in this dimension and while embodied in a fallen state, is a natural act designed to sustain our current animal nature in propagating children. For that reason alone, I doubt Lilith was Adam’s first wife and that together they were the first human couple as cited by Genesis 1:26-28 which is not even about them.
Lilith is a spiritual vixen, a demoness which according to the ancients had the ability to influence and affect especially human males through their dreams. There are not many books which elaborate upon her story, making determining how she fits into the biblical narrative difficult. I will, however, share some of what I have discovered so that readers can decide for themselves what to make of the story of Lilith.
Dadam, the Firstfather, married Leitha and they had a son called Herthew. Dadam then married Maeva who had a daughter, not by him, and this was Gwineva, the cuckoochild fathered by Abrimenid of Gwarthon, son of Namtenigal, whom we call Lewid the Darkfather. – Kolbrin Bible
The Kolbrin lists Leitha which is somewhat similar to Lilith as Dadam’s (Adam’s) first wife and Maeva or Eve as his second wife. The stories about them also include within them reference to Lewid the Darkfather, who is clearly identified with Lucifer.
Even though I do trust and consider many aspects of the Kolbrin Bible to be inspired if not intriguing, I firmly believe that truth must be established by multiple witnesses. The more the better in my opinion. But because I have not found three solid witnesses to Lilith being the first wife of Adam, I am careful to not accept such premise especially if it is not clearly denoted within the King James as I know with certainty that the stories contained within it are biblically accurate as revealed to Moses by the Lord God.
Harvard mathematician Ivan Panin, who spent decades showing how the Hebrew and Greek bibles in their current form are numerically encoded in a perfect synchronous pattern, proved that this pattern could not have come about in compilation, organization, and inspiration by any other means than to be influence by the Lord God Himself.
“The existence of such statistical anomalies is proof of divine inspiration, which attests to there being a controlling divinity, God in motivating and compiling them together in a way that we find them now.”
Thus I am careful to source all truth from the King James Version of the Holy Scriptures. And while I do also believe that texts from other cultures also have truth within them, it’s recognizing and separating the subterfuge from the truth within them that takes a discerning eye. Truth can and is found within much of the worlds traditions but one must also recognize that the forces which are organized against truth have throughout the years been working to hide and muddle that truth with leaven wherever it is present. For this reason, we must proceed in caution when studying all things, however we must always approach such study with an open mind before then taking it to the Lord God for confirmation. Those that truly share a relationship with the Creator will no doubt be guided by the Holy Spirit to recognize truth wherever it is to be found and whenever it is disclosed by anybody in small or large segments. Having eyes to see, one will be led to grasp the Bible’s secrets everywhere they are encountered.
The ancient Zohar cites Lilith not as the first wife of Adam but as his demon lover for the 130 years that he was separated from Eve following the death of Abel. It also sources Cain as a child of the serpent.
For 130 years Adam kept separate from his wife and did not beget. After Cain killed Abel, Adam did not want to copulate with his wife. Rabbi Yose said: "From the hour in which death was decreed upon him and upon the whole world, he said 'Why should I beget children for terror?' and instantly separated from his wife." And two female spirits [Lilith and Naamah] would come and copulate with him and bear children. and those whom they bore are the evil spirits of the world who are called the Plagues of Mankind. And they lead the sons of man astray, and dwell in the doorway of the house, and in the cisterns and in the latrines.... But if the holy name Shaddai with supernal crowns is found in the doorway of a man's house, they all flee and go away from there.
And we have learned that in the hour in which man descended to the earth in the supernal image, in the image of the Holy One, and the higher and lower beings saw him, they all approached him and proclaimed him king over this world. After the Serpent mounted Eve and injected filth into her, she gave birth to Cain. From thence descended all the wicked generations in the world. And the abode of demons and spirits is from there and from his side. Therefore, all the spirits and demons have one half from man below, and the other half from the angels of the supernal realm.
Thereafter Adam begot on those spirits daughters who are the beauty of those above and those below. And all went astray after them. And there was one male who came into the world from the spirit of Cain's side, and they called Tubal-Cain. And a female came forth with him, and the creatures went astray after her, and her name was Naamah. From her issued other spirits and demons. and they hover in the air and tell things to those others found below. And this Tubal-Cain brought weapons of killing into the world. And this Naamah became aroused and adhered to her [evil] side. And to this day she exists, and her abode is among the waves of the great sea. And she comes forth, and makes sport with the sons of man, and becomes hotfrom them in the dream, in that desire which a man has, and she clings to him, and she takes the desire and from it she conceives and brings forth other kinds [of spirits] into the world. And those children whom she bears from the sons of man come to the women, and they conceive from them and bear spirits. And all of them go to Lilith the Ancient, and she rears them.... And she goes out into the world and seeks her children.
And she sees the sons of man and clings to them, in order to kill them, and to become absorbed into the souls of the children of the sons of man, and she goes off with that child.But three holy spirits arrive there and fly before her and take that child from her and place him before the Holy One, blessed be He, and there he studies before Him. Therefore the Torah warns, Be sacred (Lev. 19:2). If a man is holy, he is not harmed by her, for the Holy One, blessed be He, orders those three holy angels whom we have mentioned, and they guard that child, and she cannot harm him. But if a man is not holy, and draws a spirit from the impure side, then she comes and makes sport with that child, and when she kills him she penetrates that soul [which departs from the child] and never leaves it.... At times it happens that Naamah goes forth into the world to become hot from the sons of man, and a man finds himself in a connection of lust with her, and he awakens from his sleep and takes hold of his wife and lies with her. And this desire comes from that lust which he had in his dream. Then the child that she begets comes from the side of Naamah, for the man was driven by his lust for her. And when Lilith comes and sees that child, she knows what happened, and she ties herself to him and brings him up like all those other sons of Naamah. And she is with him many times, but does not kill him. This is the man who becomes blemished on every New Moon, for she never gives him up. For month after month, when the moon becomes renewed in the world Lilith comes forth and visits all those whom she brings up, and makes sport with them, and therefore that person is blemished at that time. - Zohar 3:76b-77a
“For when the serpent came upon Eve he injected lust into her.” Shabbath 146a, The Jewish Talmud
“When the serpent copulated with Eve, he infused her with lust.” - Yebamoth 103b, The Jewish Talmud
“Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field, etc.” (Genes. III, 1.) ‘More subtle’ that is towards evil; ‘than all the beasts’ that is, the idolatrous people of the earth. For they are the children of the ancient serpent which seduced Eve…” - Zohar I, 28b
The story of Lilith though limited in the ancient rabbinical commentaries, knowledge that Cain was a child of the serpent is referenced by all of the time worn traditions which document the ancient beliefs of the Hebrew and Jewish peoples near, during, and after the time which Christ walked and taught here upon the earth. This knowledge is also known by the freemason elites and other secret societies and reason why one can find mention of it contained in all wisdom texts worldwide.
Know that even though I may quote from some of the Egyptian, Sumerian, Babylonian, Celtic, and even Masonic books as means to show the reader exactly what they are referencing that I in no way affirm these sources to be divinely inspired by the Lord God or the Holy Spirit. Secret societies have though always hoarded, incorporated, and preserved into their ‘craft,’ secrecy which safeguards in sharing such little known but essential teachings as Cain’s true parentage, the true orientation of the continents upon the earth, and the enclosed world cosmology to be passed on only among their memberships.
One that is grounded in the foundational teachings of the gospel, can use such discernment to segregate truth even from the leaven that it is surrounded and encompassed within when reading these other pagan materials. However I do recommend that those which do not even have the time to study the gospel canon, should rather focus on study of the Holy Bible than engage in the study of these other books. For those that are not grounded in the foundational truths contained in the Canon, can be led easily astray into accepting the doctrines which are spouted as true but are not.
Always base your comparison studies upon the Canon since again because of the works of individuals like Ivan Panin, we know it to be without a doubt inspired by the Lord God to exist in the manner that it does.
Some will no doubt discount some of the excerpts I’ve shared within this book to make the point that Cain is not the child of Adam but the firstborn of the devil especially when they are connected to pagan sources. However, the only reason I am sharing these other quotations is because I have already affirmed this teaching as truth from the canonical and extra biblical materials. I am introducing passages here from the Zohar and Talmud only to assert the premise that the elitist secret societies know and understand this truth as well.
It is not however necessary to study these outside sources as I prove within the early chapters of the book that this premise can be and is taught by many from the King James version of the Bible only. In fact this understanding can be gleaned as revelation from Christ’s words only as I show in the chapter on the teachings of the parables of Matthew 13. The only reason I am including all of this other material within this chapter is to verify to the reader that in studying it in full summation, it is difficult if not impossible to discount the totality of all these collective pieces aligned in parallel together as I have laid them out in this book or at least this conclusion is the one that I was led to after having examined in great depth these numerous citations altogether. And so to reiterate, the foundation for this teaching can be found solely within the Holy Bible, and one not need to examine all of these other outside sources as I have listed them within this book but that when one does, this lesson becomes in all honesty nearly impossible to refute and extremely difficult to ignore.
Since Lilith is not found in the Scriptures, but only in Tlamudic lit., I do not feel it is necessary to investigate this subject, but those who want to, go for it.
Pastor Eli James
Some have asked me about Lillith. This is not my “swim lane” although I have come across Lillith in my research and get asked about her a lot. I reached out to the Master, Zen Garcia, and here is his response which is part of his new book series Trilogy, The Great Contest”.
The Teachers ( and the best Pastor in the World Eli James!) are all aligning on this subject. Zen wrote an extensive analysis and came to the same conclusion. I am very pleased to see that in spite of our slightly different swim lanes, we ALL agree that the KJV and original text have the fingerprint of God in Mathematistics (my own word)... so few have the eyes to see this... but once you do it is Check Mate... Eli James, Zen and I SEE the MATH....
Yahshua be Praised!
