This is the second in a series on this topic, and how many papers will be necessary to adequately cover all the implications and ramifications is hard to determine at this point. I should point out that if you haven’t read Adam’s Commission, #1, you may not fully comprehend entirely what will be presented in this second issue. Previously, it was pointed out that Adam’s commission is to be found at Genesis 1, verses 26 & 28, with the creation of Adam sandwiched in-between at verse 27.
Some of those holding to the 6th & 8th day creation theory contend that Adam’s commission is to rule over the other races! They take Psalm 2:8 completely out-of-context where it says: “Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.” They assume we are to inherit the other races as a work force, but rather the heathen are going to be destroyed, and we will receive their lands as our “possession.” Psalm 2 has nothing to with us inheriting the non-Adamites. Psalm 2:1 is quoted by Peter at Acts 4:25: “Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things?” Again at Acts 13:33, Psalm 2:7 is cited: “God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Yahshua again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.” It should be perfectly clear at 2:7 that David is speaking of our Messiah. The question arises, then, if the “Son” at verse 7 is Yahshua our Redeemer, who or what is “thine inheritance” at verse 8? At Acts 2:29-30 we are informed that David was a prophet, and his prophecy at Psalm 2:7 of Christ validates that fact. So we must ask again, is the entire passage of Psalm 2 in the future in respect to David’s time? Hence, if David meant Yahshua at Psalm 2:7, who are we to change it to “us”? So who inherits who or what? Thus, it’s not who we are going to rule, but who the Christ is going to rule, and it’s not the “other races” or “heathen.” I’m often amazed where all these people come up with all of their harebrained ideas! Adam was assigned segregation rather than leadership over the non- Adamic peoples!
