The rib God took from man He made into a woman and brought her to the man. God formed entire human race of man and woman trace family tree in modern history to Adam and Eve. In Genesis 2:21–22, God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam and he slept; and He took one of the ribs from Adam to make and Eve and closed up the flesh in its place. All humans have same flesh so only one human kind flesh of men and women plus flesh of animals, fish, birds. Whales reproduce whales, elephants reproduce elephants, cows reproduce cows, bears reproduce bears, zebras reproduce zebras, giraffe reproduce giraffes, tigers reproduce tigers, lions reproduce lions, pigs reproduce pigs, dogs reproduce dogs, cats reproduce cats, chicken reproduce chicken, birds reproduce birds. So all creatures great and small reproduce their own kind as God’s Children look like God seen in Jesus, Son of God from heaven on earth now lives with God, Holy Spirit and angels. In Numbers 27:16, God is the God of all spirits of all flesh. In Genesis 1:27, Elohim created male and female nations from one flesh and blood proceeding from one stock. The flesh is inhabited by blood and spirit from God. GOD made mankind from one blood in all nations to dwell on the face of the earth. Life is sacred blood so God said, whoever sheds human blood their blood be shed for they are in the Image of God. In Genesis 11:7, Tower of Babel history in Iraq, God said “Come, let Us go down to confuse their language not to understand one another. In Isaiah 6:8, God said “Who shall I send to go for Us? So Isaiah said “Here am I send me!”God introduced appointed meeting times called Day of Rest known as Shabbat or Sabbath. This holy day reminds us God is Creator of heaven and earth so testifies to the fact God is still actively involved with His creation and sustaining us as the starting point of faith. Genesis 1:26 shows more than 1 person with God Who regularly visited Adam and Eve Face to face in Eden Garden. Hence warning to Israelites on eating blood. In Leviticus 17:14, “life of all flesh is in the blood so blood sustains life. God said to Israel, Do not eat blood of any flesh for the life of all flesh is in its blood. Whoever eats it shall be cut off.’ Life is in blood flowing in body.
In Numbers 27:16, “the LORD, God of all spirits of all flesh spoke in Noah’s flood in covenant with “all flesh.” In Numbers 16:22; Joel 2:28; Wisdom of Solomon 12:1, Noah walked with God in Genesis 6:9 and took male and female of all flesh, went in ark as God had commanded and the LORD God shut them in the ark in Genesis 7:16. God Appeared to Abram and said, “To your descendants I will give this land.” So built altar to God Who Appeared to him in Genesis 12:7. God went His way after speaking with Abraham who returned to his place. Genesis 18:33. In Genesis 18:1 God appeared to Abraham in the plains of Mamre when everyone was complaining so God spoke to Abraham who remained standing before God. In Genesis 18, we read God appeared to Abraham in Mamre, and in the same verse, 3 men visited him. They were divine beings with the Lord, Yahweh described as men engaging in human activities such as washing their feet and eating regular food (Gen. 18:4–8)? This provides details of divine theophanies for a correct understanding of these narratives to help belief concerning the nature of God. A great in-depth commentary on scriptural passages covered in this Old Testament covering material lesson is comprehensive treatment of the fact God is Friendly, Intimate, Approachable, Compassionate. God is The Most Genuinely Loving Father and Best Friend conversing in Jeremiah 6:11; 15:17. God visited Abraham as specifically stated. In Genesis 18:1 the Lord YAHWEH appeared to Abraham near the trees oaks of Mamre. Hebrew makes it perfectly clear Yahweh himself appeared in story. Greek translators confirm generically God Theos appeared. In the Tanakh, Abraham is the only person God directly calls His friend in Isaiah 41:8. Abraham, as the friend of God, showed a unique trust and faithfulness to the Lord throughout his life. In return God entrusted His unconditional covenant so freely shared with Abraham His plan to destroy Sodom. So shall I hide from Abraham what I am about to do? expressed the Lord in Genesis 18:17 as affirmed in Amos 3:7, surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing His plan, סודו, sohdo His Intimate Counsels to His servants the prophets. So judges, heavenly powers and prophets consult God in Jeremiah 23:18, 22 for counsel, friendly conversation in Psalm 55:14, secret knowledge in Psalm 25:14; Proverbs 25:9. Hebrew study of Scriptures identifies a term for secret, intimate friendship, counsel ie סוד–sohd translated secret, cushion, couch or pillow.
The root of sohd is Y-S-D means settling down or support oneself by leaning or reclining. And the best way of imagining is the prophet and God sitting down together on adjacent cushions in a nomad’s tent in the desert to discuss matters, in intimacy, not needing to shout. Abraham and God according to study Çôwdh in Secret Intimate Friendship. Appearance of Yahweh to Abraham was not isolated occurrence. God appeared to him a number of times previously in Genesis 12:7; Gen. 17:1–3, 22. Theophanies describe in detail is nonchalant, non-spectacular fashion the idea Yahweh descended from heaven to speak with Abraham and went up in Genesis 17:22 so some believe the Truine Godhead visited Abraham. In chapter 18 is another appearance of Yahweh to Abraham. Commentators make a point to distinguish this appearance from chapter 17. The open blank space in the Hebrew text between 2 chapters indicates start of a new, unrelated narrative. Some commentators identify verse 1 as introduction to chapter characterized by narrative of divine contact with mortals. To help understand this line is part of God’s Direct Connection with Abraham. The heading actually reiterates so emphasises God’s intimate relationship with Abraham and mankind from the beginning to answer question of God’s Desire To Be Closely Intimate with All His People not just prophets or specially hand-picked selected privileged chosen few. God Draws near those who draw close to Him or not. Abraham, while sitting in his tent, looks up saw 3 men approaching. Hebrew or Greek did not say angels but mortal men. However, in Genesis. 19:1, 2 of them called angels or messengers in Hebrew and Greek. If 2 left for Sodom, then apparently the 3 left behind visitor is God the Lord, left by 2 speaking to Abraham in the last part of chapter 18. Abraham saw appearance of God quickly after circumcision to show obedience to God’s command. God the Father appeared to father Abraham when he was in Mesopotamia in Ur in Iraq to move his family for all nations blessed in him then lived in Haran. God’s Image and real form is reflected in human kind.So God is willing to Reveal Himself as He Chooses without need to be afraid of God but Reverence and Honour God.When God told Abraham he was to have a son the following year, in Genesis 18:12–15, Sarah denied laughing and God said, “No, but you did laugh!” God visited Sarah so did for Sarah spoken of in Genesis 21:1. In Genesis 26:24 God appeared to Isaac and said, “I am the God of Abraham your father fear not for I am with you and will bless you and multiply your descendants for my servant Abraham’s sake.” In Exodus 24:9-11 God and Israelite noble 70 elders of Israel and Moses went up. Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu of the elders of Israel’s nobles ate and drank covenant meal with God but God did not harm them when they were in the sight of God. In Exodus 33:20 although in the past God said, no man can see God and live but people see God Visibly and live. People continue to see the Visible, Physical God personally and interact with God. God is not just a Spirit so relates only in Spirit, God is Flesh, Blood and Spirit Image Revealed to all in God’s Image in Christ. God Honours Moses with a new distinction, with Moses I speak face to face, clearly not in riddles so Moses sees real form of God in Numbers 12:8. God the Creator’s creatures see him often so in Exodus 18:1-28, Exodus 33-34, God spoke to Moses and Moses’ face shone from close contact with God. In Matthew 5:8, Jesus said Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God. Do you see how amazingly relevant the words of Jesus are? Those who believe in Seeing God will see God but those of the notion no man can see God and live will not see God until they go to heaven to see God face to Face. Seeing God per se is not the point because one does not need to see God in order to believe. God’s grace guides and quickens mankind through the Holy Spirit in Jesus Name. God reveals himself to His prophets and numerous ordinary people in history who believe and follow Him in life. In Exodus 4:1 Moses answered God and said behold they will not believe or hear my voice for they will say, God has not appeared to you, yet all the people saw the pillar of cloud standing at tabernacle door. In Isaiah 40:5-8, The glory of God is revealed so all flesh shall see God together as the mouth of God spoke so the word of God stands forever. In Exodus 33:11 Moses is distinguished as humblest meekest man on earth who saw God “Face to face and lived. God spoke to Moses face to face as a man speaks to a friend in same way. Moses literally had real, personal encounter communion with God like people in close conversations.
And God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant which established between Me and all flesh on earth. God is called “God of the spirits of all flesh, so if God gathers to Himself His Spirit and Breath from all flesh no man can live. The God of all spirits and of all flesh guides men and women. In the same way in Exodus 24:9-11 God and Israelite noble 70 elders of Israel and Moses went up. Also Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu of the elders of Israel’s nobles ate and drank with God but God did not harm them when they were in the sight of God. People saw God in Exodus 24:9-11 so God was seen. Although in Exodus 33:20 in the past God said, No man can see God and live. Moses literally had very real, personal encounter in communion with God like people in close conversations. God of all flesh is used 12x in flood account in Genesis 6:12,13,17,19; 7:15,16,21; 8:17; 9:11,15,16,17, meaning “all living things. In John 1:1, in the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God made flesh in Jesus Christ among us.In Genesis 6:19, “of every living thing of all flesh you shall bring 2 of every sort into the ark, to keep them alive with you; they shall be male and female.”Flesh in terms of human beings in Genesis 6:12-1, God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth. So God sent the Word Jesus in the flesh to save and restore mankind to God through Jesus Christ.
And God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; behold, I will destroy them with the earth. We are portrayed accurately as both mortal and corruptible. The Flood Account culminates in God’s covenant with “all flesh” where He is Judge and Preserver. God is absolutely God so humans plus all animals are utterly dependent on His mercy for continued existence. Human beings qualify as God’s Children to dwell in God’s Holy Presence. God’s Image is not too Invincible, too Gigantic too big to associate with people. Some in the world do not recognise God despite great human triumphs, technology, vast wealth, knowledge, army with banners human bodies are spirit, flesh, blood. God’s word proves Christ is God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God.3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. In John 14:7-9 Jesus said, to the disciples in the Upper Room, How can you ask me, ‘Cause us to see the Father? If you trust me, you are trusting not only me, but also God who sent me. For when you see me, you are seeing the One who sent me. When You See Me You See the Father. You believe in God; believe also in me. If you had really known me, you would know who my Father is by believing in Christ.
Jesus in the Gospels declared God for He has seen God Face to Face. God shows up in many places, many times, to be involved with mere mortal ordinary humans. God is close so shows His Presence in form of fire before Moses, Pillar of Cloud by day, Pillar of Fire by night, Wind in parting the red sea, wind in Ezekiel’s vision restores life of dry bones, as a still small voice to Elijah under the sycamore tree, as a dove during Jesus Baptism etc. God is not detached, far-fetched, uninterested in the daily details of His Children’s lives because God is near to mankind. The devil causes adversity and pain projected onto God to deceive and separate people from God’s Love. In heaven all actually see God Face to face as possible in earth’s realm. In Job 34:14-15 if God should set His heart and should gather to Himself His Spirit and His breath, All flesh would perish together, And man would return to dust. Isaiah 6:1, in the year of King Uzziah died Isaiah saw the LORD God sitting on a throne. God’s Image is seen in His Creation yet some people do not believe God makes of all flesh from same stock. God’s variety design includes blacks, whites directly from God. Blacks and whites from same family DNA melanin pigmentation creates variety albinos. In Jeremiah 32:27, God said, I am the LORD GOD Jehovah the God of all flesh is there anything too hard for me?In Genesis 16:13, Hagar called the name of the LORD who spoke to her, You-Are-the-God-Who-Sees; for she said, Have I see Him who sees me. God provided for Ishmael so God was with the son of Hagar in Genesis 21:20. Rebecca inquired from God And the LORD spoke to her in Genesis 25:22-23. Jacob saw the LORD Who stood above Him and said: “I am the LORD God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie I will give to you and your descendants. I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you in Genesis 28:13, 15. God said to Jacob Arise go to Bethel, dwell there and make an altar there to God, who appeared to you when you fled from the face of Esau your brother in Genesis 35:1. God was with Joseph so he was a successful man. God showed him mercy so He gave him favour in Genesis 39:2, 21. Patriarchs so envious sold Joseph into Egypt but God was with him in Acts 7:9. so many curiously ask, “Can people see God? Once God’s creation is honoured and valued, institutional and structural racism abuses will stop. This is because in God’s Eyes all His Creation are Very Good. It was the devil that causes the hatred and fear that makes people treat others badly globally. each child must be taught the fear of God and respect for fellow human beings and Christians can see God in all.
As humans rejected theocracy, God’s anger fuelled in disappointment. Since then chaos ensured with fights which continue because each one wants to be in control in God’s place to rule. This is the reason why God is changing the world rapidly to take charge again. God speaks to Moses and his servant Joshua the son of Nun, a young man who did not depart from the tabernacle in Exodus 33:11. Then to get ready to die, when the LORD said to Moses, “Behold, the days approach when you must die; call Joshua, and present yourselves in the tabernacle of meeting, that I may inaugurate him.” So Moses and Joshua went and presented themselves in the tabernacle of meeting. Then He inaugurated Joshua the son of Nun, and said, “Be strong and of good courage; for you shall bring the children of Israel into the land of which I swore to them, and I will be with you in Deuteronomy 31:14, 23. In Numbers 24:4, God gave utterance of Balaam who hears the words of God, and has the knowledge of the Most High, who sees the vision of the Almighty, who falls down, with eyes wide open. The words of God are given to him who sees vision of the Almighty. All around is Testimony of God Presence. God of all flesh’s handiwork is written all over creation’s body, spirit, flesh seen in boy with natural beautiful blue eyes in picture without contact lenses in Africa. Aborigine blond hair often seen in children of Malaita Island on Solomon Islands.
God also gives messages to His angel of the LORD who appeared sometimes in human form to Gideon and said to him, “The LORD is with you, you mighty man of valour in Judges 6:12. Manoah and his wife, Samson’s parents saw angel of the LORD appeared to Manoah’s wife, Samson’s mother and said to her, “Behold, you are barren and have no children; but you shall conceive and bear a son. And the she ran in haste and told her husband, “Behold, the man who came to me the other day has appeared to me.” The angel of the LORD appeared no more to Manoah and to his wife. Then Manoah knew that he was the angel of the LORD in Judges 13:3. In 1 Samuel 1:22, Hannah did not go up, for she said to her husband, “As soon as the child is weaned, I will bring him to appear in the presence of the LORD and abide there forever.” God again visited Hannah so she conceived and bore 3 sons and 2 daughters.God speaks to young, old, male, female. And the boy Samuel grew in the presence of God in 1 Samuel 2:21. God appeared again at Shiloh for God revealed Himself to the little boy Samuel at Shiloh by the word of the LORD in 1 Samuel 3:21. God loves all people no matter who they are what they did God Forgives and Loves all.
David says concerning Him: ‘I foresaw the LORD always before my face, For He is at my right hand, that I may not be shaken. Therefore my heart rejoiced, and my tongue was glad; Moreover my flesh also will rest in hope in Acts 2:25-28. I have set the LORD always before me; because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved. You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forever more in Psalms 16:8, 11. Solomon offered 1000 sacrifice to God who appeared to Solomon in 2 Chronicles 1:7-11 that night God appeared to Solomon and said to him, “Ask for whatever you want me to give you.” Solomon answered God, “You have shown great mercy and so he asked for wisdom and God’s blessings. Solomon, saw God again in 1 Kings:3:5-15 In Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what I shall give thee. The LORD appeared to Solomon a second time just as He had appeared to him at Gibeon. The LORD appeared to Solomon, angry with Solomon, because his heart turned away from the LORD, the God of Israel in 1 Kings 11:9. God has Visible Physical Personal Interaction with His people.In the Bible God was seen by Job, Micaiah, Ezekiel, Nebuchadnezzar, Shadrach, Meshach, Abed-Nego, Belshazzar and 1000’s of ministers at feast, Daniel, Amos, Jonah, Habakkuk, Zechariah, Elijah, Elisha. Ordinary people on earth see God when He reveals Himself and Jesus by manifesting through dreams and visions as God head, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel. And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy in Joel 4:10. God is still Pouring ‘Spirit of God on all flesh of all mankind male and female old and young in the same dimension of power and anointing as Jesus Christ in dreams, visions prophesy in last days. Believers are God’s Children so walk in love of God to save others, not enemies, strangers as devil wants them to think. Pray and ask God in the Name Jesus Christ to remove the heart of stone of hatred to shatter it by God’s Hammer to give heart of flesh to love all. Jesus the New Adam from Heaven brought God’s Kingdom to save the world.
