The Law Of First Mention Gives Us A Solid Foundation
When building the Faith we should do so by the Law of First Mention. The Torah contains each foundation for a subject or teaching. Simply because something occurred doesn’t mean its alright for us to do. The Saints did some pretty boned headed things and that doesn’t mean its an acceptable practice for us.
The Judgments of the Torah would have resulted in Abraham being punished for marrying his half Sister. Jacob ended up Marrying Four Women and under the Torah Jacob could not have married sisters.
The Torah is clear. We can not have Sexual Relations with anyone that is not our spouse. Abram would have been punished for Marrying his Half Sister!
Jacob Marrying Four Women is an acceptable Practice under the Judicial Portions of the Work Of Moses. But Marrying Sisters is unacceptable while both are alive!
We have just seen two examples of the Law Of First Mention that the Work Of Moses built upon. They are setting the standards for Multiple Wives and Banning Incest.
Isaiah 7:14 was not given to Isaiah as a standalone Revelation! In reality The The Holy Spirit revealed Genesis 3:15 to Isaiah. Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
The Law Of First Mention Has Always Been An Important Part Of Bible Study
The Prophecy of the Virgin Birth began at Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
Take special notice of the phrase “between thy seed and her seed”! Women do not have SEED making Genesis 3:15 the First Mention for the Virgin Birth and Not Isa 7:14!
The Law Of First Mention is the Foundation for Biblical Truth. Biblical Doctrine is based upon the First mention. We never break the Link back to the First Mention!
This is the Key to opening the Bible’s Door of Truth.
