Regarding Noah, Ham and Canaan (Genesis 9:20-27)
7/25/07 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For a Sister in Christ, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
Regarding Genesis 9:20-27, where Noah drank too much wine, and Ham, his son, saw him naked and uncovered: Some churches and Christians believe and teach that Noah cursed Ham and his son because Ham committed a homosexual act with Noah, while Noah was drunk from the wine. Others believe that Ham had sexual relations with his mother, while Noah was drunk from the wine, and this is why Canaan and Ham were cursed. And still others believe that Ham impregnated his mother, while Noah was drunk from the wine, who later gave birth to Canaan. These same churches use Leviticus as “evidence” for their belief.
Question asked by Timothy, for a sister in Christ: Lord, are these teachings correct?
Thus says The Lord: Beloved daughter, hear and understand that which I have spoken through Timothy already. And be very careful that you do not deny My Word, nor add to, nor take away from it. For I am The Lord, and I do not change. And if I do not change, then I shall surely correct and discipline My own; even to the rebuking of all these churches of men, who do always speak in My name without permission, willfully forgetting that no prophecy of Scripture is to be interpreted by an individual on his own. For no prophecy or Scripture has ever come about by the power of man’s will. Rather those chosen were given ears to hear My voice, and by the power of My spirit, according to My will, they shared My message.
Therefore, I have sent to them My prophets, even to the great outpouring of My own spirit, so they might receive of My correction and no more mar My image before the people. For I am The Word, and if I am The Word, even The Cornerstone of all truth and prophecy, its very fulfillment, then these who seek to partake of Me must first wash their faces, and they must do so with clean hands. Then will they see well enough to go out and cleanse their filthy robes. Yet they will not go out, nor have they received.
Here is truth and wisdom concerning
These blasphemies, of which you have accepted:
In the days of Noah there was much violence
And great perversion upon the face of the earth,
And so the wrath of God came upon all
The inhabitants of the earth in those days...
And none were saved except those counted
Worthy to escape, those who had walked
Uprightly before Me, obeying My every word...
These, having hearts which were right and good, were spared.
Yet I tell you, if even one of these eight souls were not of a right heart, they would have by no means entered the ark. For all appointed to wrath received of wrath and were consumed. Yet these eight lived not as the multitude, but stood apart, choosing rather to trust in My voice and obey My commands, and it was accounted to them as righteousness. So then, by no means did these of Noah’s household commit that which is a disgrace to their parents and to themselves, committing that which is altogether worthy of death.
Beloved, you see with tainted eyes, through a veil covered with purple and scarlet. Remove this veil, and wash away all this mud with which you have been splattered, and see with greater eyes. See according to righteousness, look with new eyes and restored vision, and search no more for sin and disgrace where none exists. For My Word is pure, and I am indeed a shield to those who put their trust in Me.
Therefore, do not add to My words, lest I rebuke you and you be found a liar, as it is written. Seek The Lord in all humility, apart from the churches of men; lay down your pride, and your eyes will be opened. For only I may add to My Word, yea, an unveiling of the Word’s majesty, both subtle and brilliant, that you may have greater understanding; I alone shall take what man has made crooked, and set it straight once again. For I tell you the truth, the translations of men are greatly erred, which leads to an even greater misinterpretation of My Word by the churches of men, who seek not the Truth as it is but long for that which is malleable, embracing only that which yields to their own perverse desires and expectations.
Beloved, hear and understand, and grow wise according to the wisdom I have given you, and no more listen to the churches of men. Be wary of their scholars, and stop your ears from hearing the arrogant speeches of all these men in authority; be wary and vigilant. For they hold tightly to singleness of doctrine, teaching always that which is built upon the corrupt knowledge and understanding of men, men who refuse to let go of that which was passed down to them by their forefathers, by which they also remain blind - doctrines and traditions I hate!
They cease not from perverting My Word and polluting My name before many witnesses, seeking always to expose the darkness in men, while they themselves hold onto judgment, embracing every contemptuous word and deed... Therefore cleanse your hands, you filthy sinners! Sanctify your hearts, you double-minded hypocrites! For the day is coming, and is already here, when all you have built shall be brought down; behold, it shall fall with a great crash! And all you have wrought shall be tried, it shall surely be tested, and you shall be found wanting, for the Day shall surely declare it!
And yet you continue in your false assertion, that Canaan must have been born of Ham’s mother by incest, seeking to uphold that which is most perverse, for the sake of pride... Therefore I ask you, if what you say were true, how could Noah curse the name of his son’s son in anger, even calling him by name, if that son was yet to be born? And who having his own wife, being upright before The Lord, seeks to lie with his mother in his father’s own tent?! And who having committed an act of abomination with his father, in secret, then proclaims it openly before his brethren?! Blasphemy! If such as you or the churches imagined were so, I tell you the truth, I would have destroyed Ham in that same moment, and his offspring with him! Therefore, you do greatly err!
Beloved, you lack knowledge and have no understanding; you know not the will of The Most High God. Therefore I will speak plainly, that you may discern your error and repent: There is no mention of a forbidden sexual act, or the “uncovering of one’s nakedness” as it is ambiguously referred to in certain translations of men. Rather Ham saw his father naked, and then told his brothers, as it is written. Thus Noah’s anger was not aroused because of an act worthy of death, but on account of shame. And it was I, by Noah, who cursed Canaan, the father of the Canaanites, according to that which was yet to be. For that which was spoken through Noah was according to prophecy, which later came to be written and was also fulfilled. I am The Lord.
Therefore, again I say to you,
Even to all who call of themselves Christian:
Stop adding to and taking away from My Word,
To uphold your own perverse way! Says The Lord.
