King James Bible/Isaiah connection/Genesis

Remember in my last post of this subject, I stated that the connection between each book in the King James Bible and the related chapter of Isaiah.

This time we will look at Genesis and that relationship.

***Isaiah 1:2 ¶ Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the LORD hath spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me.

Genesis 2:1 ¶ Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.

The connection here is Heavens and earth in both passages. “they have rebelled against me” is a clear connection of the fall of man spoken of in the 3rd chapter of Genesis.

***Another example:

Isaiah 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

very few times in the Bible in which God engages in a physical conversation with man.

Genesis 3:8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day:

***another example: In the above verses. “they shall be as wool”. No doubt this the plan of redemption for the fall of mankind out of the garden of Eden. Wool signifies the wool of the lamb. This was God’s plan to place man back into the right with Himself via the blood of the Lamb. the wool of the lamb. Of course, the most significant verse is in

Genesis 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.

***another example: The word “Ram”. The first time and last time of the sacrifice of the Ram. The first time was when Abraham and Isaac on Mount Moriah.

Genesis 22:13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.

The ending of sacrifices for the Ram is in

Isaiah 1:11 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the LORD: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.

*** Another example:

Isaiah 1:16 ¶ Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;

Genesis 35:2 Then Jacob said unto his household, and to all that were with him, Put away the strange gods that are among you, and be clean, and change your garments:

These are just a few and by no means exhaustive.

I encourage your thoughts and comments.
