1)            On the day of his creation the Adamic prototypicality – a perfection of intelligent being – opened his eyes for the first time and beheld none other than his Creator. Covered, as he lay in the dust, in the clayey foundation of his being, the first Adam was created in sinless perfection. Standing up, it was an uprightness of a perfect being, even before the perfect LORD God. For days, weeks, months or years of scriptural unaccountability the Adamic prototypical couple existed in a lifestyle of perfection. They were perfect until they allowed themselves into smearing their consciences with the ways of Satanism, leading to the break away from divine connectivity.

                If it was not possible to be perfect again the Bible will never make mention of Genesis 5:22 “And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:” where the verbal ‘walked’ is hâlak (haw-lak’): ‘to go, walk, come, depart, proceed, move, to die, live, manner of life (simply put, ‘lifestyle’)’. Was Enoch the first to do the lifestyle of hâlak with God? His ‘walk with’ Elohim is the Hebraic יתהלך yithhallech, meaning: ‘he set himself to walk,’ it was a tenacious enthusiasm of an appropriated lifestyle before God that Enoch got himself engrossed in. Who taught Enoch this hâlak? Adam, the great grandfather of mankind, was around for centuries. At age one hundred and thirty years Adam fathered, biologically, Seth. When Seth gave birth to his son Enos at age 105, Adam was 235 years old. When Enos begot Cainan at age 90, his grandfather was 325. Cainan, giving birth at age 70, placed Adam’s age at 395. Fatherhood of Mahalaleel at 65 pushed Adam’s age to 460 years – still alive. Jared, the son of Mahalaleel, had Enoch at age 162, the year Adam clocked 622. At age 65 of Enoch’s fatherhood, Adam’s age climbed up to 687. How old was Adam when Methuselah had Lamech at age 187? Adam was eight hundred and seventy-four years old. Adam did not witness the birth of Noah, Lamech’s son, but the Great Grandpa of humanity lived to witness the growth of Lamech to an adult age of fifty-six!

                Adam saw eight generations (excluding Cain) after him. Could Adam be the first to stand spiritually upright and after having been forgiven not know how to teach righteousness of hâlak to his children, grand children and great grand children? I, honestly, cannot imagine anyone of Adam’s descent not travelling all the way to present Adamic addition to Father Adam. Adam taught his progenies how to walk with the LORD God of creation. His home housed all the antediluvian saints: for how could they know of their origin if they stayed away from the leader of the antediluvian age and especially the righteous walking saints?

                Whoever believes that we cannot be perfect spiritually must have skipped a particular word in Genesis 6:9 “These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.” The word ‘perfect’ is tâmı̂ym (taw-meem’): ‘complete, sound, whole; what is complete or entirely in accord with truth and fact (neuter adjective/substantive) entire (literally, figuratively or morally); also (as noun) integrity, truth.’ Walking with God means doing the things pleasing to the Creator. The only way to the physical practice of this walk is to place each of your own feet of tread exactly on the footprint of the LORD’s walk. Hâlak, defined as ‘lifestyle’, makes the LORD’s walk His ways, thoughts and instructions. How does one perform God’s hâlak? It is found in the Mosaic utterance of Deuteronomy 6:4-5 “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: 5) And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.” The word ‘love’ is ‘âhab (aw-hab’): ‘to have affection for (sexually or otherwise); befriend, desire, to breathe after anything, hence, longing.’

                This Hebraic love – of God – is akin to Greek agapé as Moses put it in Deuteronomy 7:8 “But because the LORD loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the LORD brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.” Quoting from Deuteronomy 6:5, we read in Matthew 22:37-40 “Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38) This is the first and great commandment. 39) And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40) On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”  This ‘love’ in the Greek is agapaō (ag-ap-ah’-o): ‘to love (in a social or moral sense).’ This is the verbal form of agapé, ‘love feast; God’s kind of love of commitment.’ The word of God says, “because the LORD loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers”; which proves that this love is just not mere palpitations of the affection that the heart is often experiencing. ‘Âhab with its Greek cognate agapé is a lifestyle of commitment.

                Getting born again is a conscious effort on the part of an individual. Get born again. Say this sinner’s prayer.
