LOST BOOK OF ADAM AND EVE BOOK 1 -
THE EASTER STORY’ of CHRIST PREACHING TO THE ‘SOULS IN HELL’ -
[1 Peter 3.19-20 'By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison, which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water'.]
AS TAKEN FROM THE 'APOCRYPHAL BOOK' THE 'LOST BOOK OF ADAM AND EVE' BOOK 1 –
The following is a ‘rough copy’ of my 'up and coming' new book ‘Eden Insights’ - by S.N.Strutt © Upgraded 18/04/2021
Chapter 42: ‘A promise of the Water of Life. The third prophecy of the coming of Christ.’
1 THEN came the Word of God to Adam, and said unto him:
John 1.1 'In the beginning was the Word and the word was with God and the Word was God, the same was in the beginning with God'.
2 "O Adam, as to what thou sayest, 'Bring me into a land where there is rest. There is not another land, but it is the kingdom of heaven where alone there is rest."
C.1 In this amazing book the 'Lost Book of Adam and Eve Book 1' it is like adding to the story in the Bible of Adam and Eve from the time that they got kicked out of the Garden until Cain slew his brother Abel. This book gives a little more 'insight' and colour to the biblical story of both Creation and Adam and Eve and their descendents.
Hebrews 4.11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.
Psalm 37.7 “Rest in the LORD and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.”
3 "But thou canst not make thy entrance into it at present; but only after thy judgment is past and fulfilled.
1 Cor.11.31-32 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.
4 "Then will I make thee go up into the kingdom of heaven, thee and thy righteous seed; and I will give thee and them the rest you ask for at present.
Matthew 7.21“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.
5 "And if you said, 'Give me of the Water of Life that I may drink and live' - it cannot be this day, but on the day that I shall descend into hell, and break the gates of brass, and bruise in pieces the kingdoms of iron.
C.2 Such love is manisfested by Jesus the 'Word of God' in willing to suffer and die for all the sins of mankind whilst on the cross and immediately afterwards descend into hell to preach to the souls in Hell that many might get saved as spoken of in the scriptures very clearly.
John 3.16 For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believes on him should not perish but have everlasting life.
C.3 'descend into hell, and break the gates of brass, and bruise in pieces the kingdoms of iron'.[See Daniel 2 - The Image dream of all the empires of man from 600 BC until the Anti-Christ End-time worldwide empire of the Beast (Rev 13).
C.4 Rome was a kingdom of iron and so will the coming worldwide ANTI-CHRIST kingdom also be as a re-birth of the Roman empire in fierceness. (Daniel 7.7)]
C.5 Here is an amazing verse. Why? Because some of the Christian world is in denial that Christ actually went down to Hell for 3 days and nights, giving the excuse that there was not enough time between Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
C.6 However, you will find by doing a little calculating that Jesus actually must have died on the Thursday before Easter Sunday as it states in scripture that Christ spent 3 days in the heart of the earth - so counting three days back from Easter Sunday we arrive at the Thursday and not the Friday as the date for his death, and then he arose on the Sunday. He the ‘Word of God’ clearly stated that He would spend some time in the ‘heart of the earth’ as that in the above verse 5 of this ‘Lost Book of Adam and Eve Book 1’ also states. [Note: some hold to the view that Jesus died on the Wednesday and that he was resurrected on the Saturday, rather than the Sunday: source Was Jesus dead for three days and three nights? (biblestudy.org)]
Matthew 12.40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
C.7 .. ‘I shall descend into hell, and break the gates of brass, and bruise in pieces the kingdoms of iron’. Why did Jesus descend into Hell for 3 days and three nights according to the Bible scriptures?
C.8 As it clearly states in this 5th verse of this chapter Jesus descended into hell to ‘break the gates of brass’ which represents the gates of both Death and Hell, and smash all of Satan’s fleshly worldly powers which fulfils what Jesus Himself also state in the book of Revelation chapter 1:
Revelation 1:18 ‘I am he that lives and was dead, and behold I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of Hell and Death.
C.9 Well, what is clear is that Jesus must have gone down into hell and fought against Satan and his fallen angels and took away the ‘keys of hell and death’ from Him right after He died and before He was resurrected on Easter Sunday.
1 Peter 4.6 For this cause was the gospel peached unto the dead..
Ephesians 4.9-10 Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fulfil all things.
Acts 2.31 He (King David in1000 BC) seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.
1 Cor 15.4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
1 Cor 15.21-22 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
1 Cor 15.25-26 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
Revelations 20.14 And Death and Hell were cast into the Lake of Fire. This is the second death.
6 "Then will I in mercy save thy soul and the souls of the righteous, to give them rest in My garden. And that shall be when the end of the world is come.
1 Cor 15.42-47 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. 47 The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from heaven.
7 "And again, as regards the Water of Life thou seek, it will not be granted thee this day; but on the day that I shall shed My blood upon thy head in the land of Golgotha.
C.10 What an amazing prophecy giving even the name 'Golgotha' some almost 6000 years ago just after Creation, if we can fully rely on the source of the 'Lost books of Adam and Eve'?
Mark 15.22 ‘And they bring him unto the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place of a skull’.
C.11 For the crucifixion: See Matthew 27: 32-44; Luke 23:26-43, John 19: 16-27. More about Christ the Messiah and his sufferings Psalm 22, Psalm 69, Isaiah 53
8 "For My blood shall be the Water of Life unto thee, at that time, and not to thee alone, but unto all those of thy seed who shall believe in Me; that it be unto them for rest for ever."
Jn 1.37 He that believes in Me as the scripture has said ‘Out of his belly shall flow rivers of Living Waters.
Rev.22.1-2 And he showed me a pure river of the Water of Life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, there was the Tree of Life, which bore twelve kinds of fruit and yielded her fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
9 The Lord said again unto Adam, "O Adam, when you were in the garden, these trials did not come to thee
10 "But since you did transgress My commandment, all these sufferings have come upon you.
11. "Now, also, does your flesh require food and drink; drink then of that water that flows by you on the face of the earth."
12 Then God withdrew His Word from Adam.
13 And Adam and Eve worshipped the Lord and returned from the river of water to the cave. It was noon-day; and when they drew near to the cave, they saw a large fire by it.
C.12 What was the 'large fire' by it? Well you will have to read the next chapter...which you can read in my new and up and coming book 'Eden Insights', which will probably come out around June 2021'.
C.13 Just an idea, but the fact that this book is stating that Adam and Eve originally lived in the 'Cave of Treasures' after having been booted out of the 'Garden of Eden' could have been the concept that led to evolutionists believing that man used to be a 'cave-man'.
Well, here we are only talking about around 6000 years ago, and not millions of years ago. It is quite easy to prove that the age of the earth is very young by many different methods, which I have covered before. Many honest scientists can testify to the young age of the earth.
C.14 Notice how that Easter always falls in a different week each year according to the cycles of the moon - and can vary from late March to around the middle of April - i.e around a 1 month of fluctuations in the timing of Easter.
C.15 Easter happened at the same time as the Jewish celebrations of the Passover which was governed by the cycles of the moon! Why was that?
C.16 When we think about it, Jesus was born on a specific day & DATE - so why celebrate it on a different day each year? The day will fluctuate so woulndn't it be better to celebrate the exact date on which Christ was resurrected in particular or has that info been lost to time itself?
Question: Is the fact that Easter is on some random date -decided by whom -that I don't yet know - in order to minimize the date; or better said to make 'important dates' seem random which is the way of modern man in his unbelief and worshipping the idol of evolution with all of its randomness and so-called co-incidences.
C.17 Were dates and time erratic in the far past or even Pre-Flood times or perhaps not? I leave it up to you to decide: Which is the most important - the actual date as to when God did something or the exact day?
I mean which is the most useful information in the long run. I would personally reckon that the actual date is more important to know than a fluctuating day like a Friday for example.
C.18 According to these very interesting books of the Lost Book of Adam and Eve pt 1 and 2 - Adam was born on a Friday and 930 years later he also died on a Friday.
Is this true? If so why? I will look into that topic more in the future.
C.19 For more on 'real time' as created by God in the beginning - see my new book 'Jubilees Insights', as believe it or not, man has interfered with the times and seasons by altering the original number of days in the year...How and when was the time altered?
Isn't it true that the number of degrees in a circle is exactly 360 - A perfect number in ancient maths - a constant.
C.20 Shouldn't we have 360 days in a year like the good old fashioned prophetic year has in both the Books of Daniel and Revelations.
The big question is why and when has time been changed?...
