Question: Was incest taking place in Eden to populate the earth after Adam and Eve were expelled from the garden?
Answer from ascended master Jesus through Kim Michaels:
This is a very intelligent and logical question, which those who insist that the Bible is the infallible word of God or that it should be interpreted literally either overlook or refuse to consider.
Genesis, Chapter 4 makes it clear that Adam and Even had three children, and they were all boys. So if Adam and Eve truly were the first humans and the only humans in the Garden, how could their three sons have begotten children? Genesis Chapter 4 says:
16 And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.
17 And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.
25 And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.
26 And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD.
Who was Cain’s wife and where did she come from? For whom did Cain build a city; himself, his wife and Enoch? Who was Seth’s wife and where did she come from?
Logically, there is no way Adam and Eve could be the parents of humanity if they had only sons and if there were no other people on the planet. Given what is known today about genetics, it simply isn’t possible that two people could be the parents of the entire human race. The gene pool would have been too narrow and the inevitable effect would have been degenerative birth defects that would have led the race to become extinct within a few generations.
So if you insist that the Bible is the infallible word of God and that it should be interpreted literally, you have no way of explaining this. You have to either deny the Bible or the biological facts. This is indeed what has happened since the birth of science, namely that people have been forced into taking one of two extreme positions. They either cling to the infallibility of the Bible and deny all evidence to the contrary or they cling to materialism and deny all evidence for a spiritual side of life.
It is my hope with my website to show people that there is an alternative to these dualistic extremes. The alternative is the Christ mind which enables you to see the middle way that is above both extremes.
In this case, the fact is that Adam and Eve were not the only people on earth and they were not the only lifestreams to fall from the Garden of Eden. The story of Adam and Eve is not the ultimate beginning of human life on earth. Adam and Eve should be seen as archetypes, and their story simply tells the story of an entire evolution of lifestreams. These lifestreams first descended into a spiritual school, illustrated as the Garden of Eden. The God in the garden was a spiritual teacher by the name Lord Maitreya. The garden existed in a realm of higher vibrations that is not visible to the physical senses of human beings.
As I explain, the material world has four levels of vibration. The Garden of Eden was in what we call the etheric or identity level. Only some of the people in the garden fell into a lower state of consciousness. Others ascended from the garden. Those who fell, lowered the vibration of their consciousness until they could no longer see the garden. They then took on the denser physical bodies that people wear today.
As I said, there were a number of lifestreams who fell at the same time. Yet there were already millions of human beings living in the material frequency spectrum. It was with these people that the sons of Adam and Eve married and had children. Because these people had already descended far below the level of the Christ consciousness, this intermarrying actually hastened the descent in consciousness of the people who fell from the garden. It sped up the process that caused them to forget their spiritual origin.
So the short answer is that there was no incest involved, and the reason was that there were many lifestreams who fell and they fell into a frequency spectrum that was already inhabited by people with whom they could intermarry. Obviously, this answer would not be acceptable to orthodox Christians or materialistic scientists. Yet it is a fact.
