Biblical Audio Commentary – The Infinite-Dimensional Chess Master
It’s instructive to show the omniscience of the Lord in a concrete manner at times so as to remind ourselves of how truly awesome He is. Lately in this venue I’ve been exploring the events revolving around Noah and his family following the Flood, particularly in regard to his son Ham and Ham’s youngest son Canaan. My Awaken Bible Prophecy Updates The Countdown and The Curse on Canaan discuss this situation.
What is apparent to me is that there is an insidious thread that weaves itself through the annals of Biblical history involving the worship of pagan gods and their idols in conjunction with sexual sin and depravity. It begins in the Garden of Eden, becomes flagrant in the antediluvian era in the aftermath of the Genesis 6 account of the rebellious sons of God coming to earth with all that occurs then, weaves its way into life following the flood with the abominable events depicted in Genesis 9 with Noah’s drunkenness, continues through the descendant line of Canaan with the giant tribes in the land, and is in our faces today as we near the end of the age.
That’s the bad news. The Good News is that God is always – not just one or three moves ahead in the cosmic game of chess with Satan and his minions; no, God has an eternal perspective that encompasses every single potential move the enemy may even contemplate. Knowing exactly how Satan will play his hand because of His omniscience in knowing the end from the beginning, God positions his multi-dimensional moves from an infinite viewpoint. He has all aspects of the game covered and is so many steps ahead, that Satan is truly out of his league. Whatever Satan schemes and then does, God has already planned the rearrangement of the pieces on the board to infinity.
We know that Satan’s overarching desire is to replace God and to destroy His creation. One of the many ploys Satan has tried several times over the millennia is to corrupt the DNA of mankind. This was the intent with this sad incident recounted in Genesis 9:18-27:
18 The sons of Noah who went forth from the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth. (Ham was the father of Canaan.) 19 These three were the sons of Noah, and from these the people of the whole earth were dispersed.
20 Noah began to be a man of the soil, and he planted a vineyard. 21 He drank of the wine and became drunk and lay uncovered in his tent. 22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father and told his two brothers outside. 23 Then Shem and Japheth took a garment, laid it on both their shoulders, and walked backward and covered the nakedness of their father. Their faces were turned backward, and they did not see their father’s nakedness. 24 When Noah awoke from his wine and knew what his youngest son had done to him, 25 he said,
“Cursed be Canaan;
a servant of servants shall he be to his brothers.”
26 He also said,
“Blessed be the Lord, the God of Shem;
and let Canaan be his servant.
27 May God enlarge Japheth,
and let him dwell in the tents of Shem,
and let Canaan be his servant.”
As we learned in the prior teachings I noted earlier, it is apparent that Ham, at the minimum, had sexual relations with his mother; worse, his son Canaan may have also committed this iniquity with his grandmother bringing down this full curse upon himself.
From this incident, the curse of the giant Rephaim tribes subsequently coming from the loins of Ham is the outcome. Timing is a little sketchy from the Biblical text, but somewhere within 300 years following this, the Tower of Babel was built and God dispersed all the peoples into separate nations. (Genesis 11). Interestingly, He placed all the giant tribes from Ham’s line into the land of Canaan. Why? So that His people Israel could eliminate them. Take that, Satan!
Except that didn’t happen. The Israelites through their lack of faith and commitment to completely obeying God’s Word failed in this crucial task. Naturally, that left an opening for Satan. Historical records indicate that eventually giants made their way throughout the entire earth. This is seen from England to the Southwestern US, where archeological remains have been found far exceeding the normal size of men in those areas. A fascinating piece of this history is that numerous oversize human bones have been found in these many places, plus building projects beyond the capability of human ingenuity are also present. Where the bones have been displayed in local museums in the past, in most instances they have mysteriously disappeared, although photographs remain. A well-researched book following these giant descendants of the Nephilim is Giants: Sons of the gods, which is well worth your time if interested in this whole area of study.
It appears that most if not all of the residue of these giant peoples has been wiped out by human tribes in those areas. What’s a Satan to do? God has eliminated this source of contamination of mankind.
Evil never sleeps. It’s why this current age is so treacherous. The enemy has launched a multi-pronged attack on the integrity of pureblood humanity. The assault we’re most familiar with is that of the globalists and their obsession to create an improvement on what God created in the form of Humanity 2.0. This takes many forms with the merging of man and machine, the corruption of DNA by the poisonous COVID vaxx, and others that are in development. There are scientists experimenting with chimeric research. Using CRISPR CAS-9 technology, they can snip out pieces of DNA and insert different strands in their place. In doing so, they hope to enhance mankind with things like the eyesight of an eagle or the hearing of a dolphin. Super-soldier bio-technology experiments are well-underway and certainly being projected in fiction.
Adding to this are the disturbing accounts of so-called alien abductions. These beings associated with UFOs are actually demonic entities. They could be fallen angels, i.e. more rebellious sons of God, or – this concept recently came to my attention – some could be demons that have “put on” an alien persona in some manner. We know that demons are bodiless and always seeking a body to inhabit. Perhaps they’ve found the means to appropriate an alien “skin” and so appear when doing their dirty-work.
And what might that be? In alien abductions, the human victims are often molested through their genitals. It appears as though ovum and sperm are being harvested. If that’s the case, and there is a good case to be made, then the demonic realm may have for many years been experimenting with the creation of a new breed of Nephilim.
Too far out and unbelievable, you say? The world during the Tribulation will be one of extreme supernatural signs and wonders. Would you really put it past Satan and his minions to prepare an army of these in one or multiple forms to accomplish their purpose?
Regardless of whatever these demonic entities do in their evil intent, God has it covered. Perhaps they’ve convinced themselves that God doesn’t see and know, or that this time will be different and they’ll succeed in their war against Him. Good luck with that, guys. Believe all you want, but God is more than sufficient in His all-knowing, infinitely-dimensional perspective. There’s not one single thing that Satan does that escapes the attention of our Lord and Savior.
Psalm 94:1-11 makes this clear:
O Lord, God of vengeance,
O God of vengeance, shine forth!
Rise up, O judge of the earth;
repay to the proud what they deserve!
O Lord, how long shall the wicked,
how long shall the wicked exult?
They pour out their arrogant words;
all the evildoers boast.
They crush your people, O Lord,
and afflict your heritage.
They kill the widow and the sojourner,
and murder the fatherless;
and they say, “The Lord does not see;
the God of Jacob does not perceive.”
Understand, O dullest of the people!
Fools, when will you be wise?
He who planted the ear, does he not hear?
He who formed the eye, does he not see?
He who disciplines the nations, does he not rebuke?
He who teaches man knowledge—
the Lord—knows the thoughts of man,
that they are but a breath.
Not only does God know every thought of all mankind, likewise He knows all that His creation in the spiritual realm think and scheme. Because of that, we can be assured that whatever Satan has up his sleeve, it will fail. Evil never sleeps, but as 2 Chronicles 16:9 assures us:
For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to give strong support to those whose heart is blameless toward him.
He is watching over those who love Him, and He will protect us from all the wicked schemes of the enemy. Satan can only dream of doing what God does and who He is.
We who are in Christ never have anything to fear. All we need do is to put our faith and trust in the Lord.
