Earth s Earliest Ages

Written in the late 19th century, G.H. Pember's Earth's Earliest Ages is a book that might possibly be even more relevant in the 21st century. In Ages, Pember presciently observes the decline of Godly fear in society that was predicted in the Bible. Pember details seven points by which Christians can discern the relentless march of prophetic events leading to the rapture of the Church, the Great Tribulation, and the return of Jesus Christ. The seven signs as presented in the book are: I. A tendency to worship God as Elohim, that is, merely as the Creator and Benefactor, and not as Jehovah the covenant God of mercy, dealing with transgressors who are appointed to destruction, and finding a ransom for them. II. An undue prominence of the female sex, and a disregard of the primal law of marriage. III. A rapid progress in the mechanical arts, and the consequent invention of many devices whereby the hardships of the curse were mitigated, and life was rendered more easy and indulgent. Also a proficiency in the fine arts, which captivated the minds of men, and helped to induce an entire oblivion of God. IV. An alliance between the nominal Church and the World, which speedily resulted in a complete amalgamation. V. A vast increase of population. VI. The rejection of the preaching of Enoch, whose warnings thus became a savour of death unto the world, and hardened men beyond recovery. VII. The appearance upon earth of beings from the Principality of the Air, and their unlawful intercourse with the human race. The Christian reader will be challenged and encouraged by comparing Pember's theories with the reality of today's world. The reader will realize that the time is short. We are to be about the Lord's work as the Lord is returning soon. Are you ready?

Earth s Earliest Ages

Does a curious verse in the book of Daniel validate Pember's thesis?

Earth s Earliest Ages

"The influences of the Spirit of God are even now in process of withdrawal, as He prepares for that departure from earth which will leave it open for Nephilim, seven fold worse than those who formerly dwelt in it, to enter, and for a short season to work their will upon the human race; Then will all the Nephilim, who are yet at liberty, be among men, and will quickly make them feel the meaning of that awful utterance, 'Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the Devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.'" G.H. Pember As far back as the beginning of time and within every major culture of the ancient world, the astonishingly consistent story is told of gods who descended from heaven and materialized in bodies of flesh. From Rome to Greece and before that, to Egypt, Persia, Assyria, Babylonia, and Sumer the earliest records of civilization tell of the era when powerful beings known to the Hebrews as Watchers and in the book of Genesis as the b'nai ha Elohim ('sons of God') mingled themselves with humans, giving birth to part-celestial, part-terrestrial hybrids known as 'Nephilim.' When English theologian George Hawkins Pember, in his 1876 masterpiece, Earth's Earliest Ages, analyzed the prophecy of Jesus Christ in Matthew 24 that says the end times would be a repeat of 'the days of Noah,' he concluded the final and most fearful sign heralding the Lord's Second Coming would be the return of the 'Nephilim, the appearance upon earth of beings from the Principality of the Air, and their unlawful intercourse with the human race.' Jesus Himself, in answering His disciples concerning the signs of His coming and of the end of the world, verified it would be 'as the days of [Noah] were' (Matthew 24:37). The implication is, just as it was before the Flood when the spirits of Nephilim were powerful upon earth (Genesis 6:4), mankind would experience an end-times renaissance of the influence of these entities. Does a curious verse in the book of Daniel validate Pember's thesis? Speaking of the last days of human government, Daniel said: 'They shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay' (Daniel 2:43). While Daniel does not explain who 'they' that 'mingle themselves with the seed of men' are, the personal pronoun 'they' raises questions over what (or who) in the end times 'mingle with the seed of men?' Who are these non-seed? It staggers the mind to contemplate how the same phenomenon that occurred in Genesis chapter 6, where nonhuman species or 'nonseed' mingled with human seed and produced Nephilim could happen again in the end times. Yet when this verse from Daniel is coupled with Genesis 3:15, which says, 'And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed [zera, meaning 'offspring,' 'descendents,' or 'children'] and her seed,' an incredible tenet emerges that Satan has seed, that it is at enmity with Christ, and that it is set to return in these last days. Has the time of their coming arrived?

Archaeology and Bible History

Joseph P. Free's Archaeology and Bible History, first published in 1950, served well an entire generation of pastors, Sunday school teachers, laypersons, and college students by summarizing the history of the Bible and shedding light on biblical events through archaeological discoveries. The author demonstrated how such data helps us understand the Bible and confirm its historical accuracy. At times he also dealt with issues of biblical interpretation and criticism, always from a historically orthodox position. When the book was withdrawn from circulation in 1976 after the fourteenth printing, many hoped for the day when it would be revised and updated. That task has now been undertaken by one of Dr. Free's former students and a biblical archaeologist in his own right, Dr. Howard Vos. He has brought the archaeological and historical material up to date and has modified earlier archaeological interpretations where necessary. The bibliography has been almost totally replaced.

Saving the Original Sinner

A scientist and former evangelical argues that holding onto a belief in a literal, historical Adam has forced many Christians to reject science and become intellectually isolated from the modern world. Beginning in the seventeenth century, discoveries in anthropology, geology, paleontology, biblical studies, and linguistics cast doubt on the familiar account of the biblical Adam and his fall into sin, the central component in the West's understanding of its origins. Christians responded by creatively reconstructing the creation story, letting Adam “evolve” to accommodate his changing context. But further advances both in science and biblical studies eventually made it all but impossible to reconcile a first couple with a modern, scientific understanding of the past or with an informed reading of ancient biblical texts. Many Christians rejected the offensive scholarship, veering onto a path that would place them increasingly at odds with contemporary scholarship in many fields. In Saving the Original Sinner, Giberson tells the story of the evolution of the idea of Adam and explores how, over the centuries, we have created Adam in our own image to explain and justify our behavior. Giberson shows how the narrative of the Fall has influenced Western ideas about sexuality, gender, and race, and he argues that ongoing attempts to preserve the biblical story of creation in the face of mounting evidence to the contrary is contributing to the intellectual isolation of many Christians, particularly evangelicals—even as they continue to wield significant political power in the United States.

Adam s Ancestors

He reveals how what began as biblical criticism became a theological apologetic to reconcile religion with science—evolution in particular—and was later used to support arguments for white supremacy and segregation. From heresy to orthodoxy, from radicalism to conservatism, from humanitarianism to racism, Adam's Ancestors tells an intriguing tale of twists and turns in the cultural politics surrounding the age-old question, "Where did we come from?"

Synthetic Bible Studies

We are to engage in what is called the synthetic study of the Bible, which means, as we use the term, the study of the Bible as a whole, and each book of the Bible as a whole, and as seen in its relation to the other books. The word "synthesis" has the opposite meaning "analysis." When we analyze a subject we take it apart and consider it in its various elements, but when we synthesize it we put it together and consider it as a whole, which is what we are now about to do in a certain sense with the Word of God's.
