Oh I am not saying you are wrong Dave. I just think that sometimes things can be referring to more than one thing at once (hopefully that makes sense?).

I didn't used to realise this, so was quite an eye opener for me when I realised that when it comes to the Bible things can be on different levels - quite amazing really - always more to learn :D.

Hi Seeker
Thanks for your post I could be wrong I know I write some pretty strange stuff at times but I write it from the point of view of how the Bible speaks to me and not so Much what other people says it says.
I believe you are quite right when you say there are different levels I think there at least three bit like the creation of man first you have Israel then Christ then the spirit It's all a procession leading to God we don't always see the higher levels but I believe they are there.

Love and Peace
Dave

Hi
Moving on so Noah and his sons and there wife's come out of the ark and receive the command to go forth and multiply which they do successfully and spread out over land until we come to the call of Abraham the start of the nation Israel.
I like to see this as the creation of Adam and eve I say this because when God destroyed the earth it stands to reason he started a new creation  mankind in Gods image It starts with one man you could call him one cell or egg maybe' he grow's into an embryo and goes into Egypt to mature Egypt goes into labour pains  the plagues Israel is born through water the red sea into the wilderness   he is totally dependent on God as a baby is dependent on it's parents.

Love and Peace

Hi John
I would be interested to know your views on Babel as I see it mankind were not doing as God had commanded them

Gen 9:1  And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.

 they should not be staying in one place place building a great city but spreading across the globe to replenish it

 Gen 11:9  Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

Love and Peace
Dave

You're the one with a spiritual interpretation to everything.
All I see is what is written, that they continued to disobey God, and even tried to replace him.

Nothing wrong with spiritual interpretation ... does make the boxes uncomfortable when breaking God free from them huh

Hi
Iv'e moved this question on to a new thread so we don't get side tracked the brief of this thread was looking for Christ in the OT I don't see much about Christ between Noah and Abraham.
Why Abraham you may ask He is the father of Israel and I believe Israel is the forerunner of Christ man in Gods image I think maybe Israel is a recreation of Adam God is telling us what went wrong with the first Adam.

Love and Peace
Dave
