The False doctrine of Ham having incest

Posted: 10 February 2012


I was led to write further on my own childhood life a very important stage of my life as we moved from Victoria Street to the tiny island of Pulau Brani. My dad found a job as an Engine Driver Class II (he later sat for this exam and got through the certification) with the Straits Trading Company, which was still mining for Tin in the island.

But first let us examine the boast that God revealed to them that Ham has incest with his mother as something that even Brother Branham did not have.  This boast has two edges :-

1) It claimed God spoke to these men outside of the Last Angel messenger, hence they keep reminding their congregation, that is like eating old manna, when they now got new manna from their pulpit.

2) It place the man to be a prophet and hence take over the work the message was suppose to do, to usher in the Second Coming of Christ.

Whether most can see through them or not, there are two groups or more that ride on the coat tail of this prophet. Those who use his name to promote themselves and those who speaks against him or his followers to promote themselves of course. Exalting themselves to a position which God did not give.

Now when Noah was six hundred years old, he entered the Ark on the time appointed,10th day of the second month. See below:-

(Gen 7:10)  And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth.
(Gen 7:11)  In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.

Let’s recapitulate. The rain fell after Noah was 7 days in the Ark (read seven dispensations-church ages) on the 2nd Month, the 17th day of the month were the fountains of the great deep broken up and the rain torrent started to fill the earth till all those that have nostrils died, even the birds of the air.

(Gen 7:22)  All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died.
We can assume most of the deep water fishes were spared as the tidal waves did not affect them. But was there also nuclear fallout? Remember “Atlantis” was mentioned well advanced in science and it was men who destroyed the earth . God destroyed nothing. For this, the whole earth was tilted more than 15º. Some parts of the antediluvian world remain as evidence to us, namely the Great Pyramid of Gaza and the Sphinx. Perhaps were also Stonehenge and the Incas memorial? Whilst in Secondary three I was appointed as the school librarian and got hold of all these books to read! The Egyptiantologist (whatever they called themselves) gave the explanation that it was the face of their boy king who loves cats, hence, the body of a cat. Oh well…….

Brother Branham enlightened me when he said it was the face of a woman and the body of the lion. From the astronomical zodiac (not astrological) Virgo being the first sign and Leo being the last of the Milky Way. Do you know where the eyes are looking to? Follow it and you will see Palestine. From the East where the Redeemer comes. Look East and that is why the Branham Tabernacle faces East. (this part may not be totally correct about looking East as I am typing from memory). It rained nonstop for forty days and forty nights.
(Gen 7:12)  And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.
 (Gen 7:24)  And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.
The God remembered Noah and  all those in the Ark and He caused the Wind to blow continually and all the fountains were stopped.
(Gen 8:13)  And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry.
(Gen 8:14)  And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, was the earth dried.

See, in other words, from the 7th chapter to the 8th chapter, the flood caused Noah to be in the Ark for more than a year. Remember, Noah went into the Ark when he was 600 years, one year and ten (actually seventeen), days later, he was able to leave the Ark and touch the land. This long period in the Ark is important to study.  If the gestation period of the sons’ wives were same as today, it would mean children could be borne inside the Ark which were not recorded or it seemed to us but in reality, there was such a record. That of Canaan and we shall see why. Certainly we know Genesis don’t record the girls birth unless God chose to do otherwise for His own reason. We cannot question the decision of God because He is the Word, perfect and He changeth not.
Next we looked into planting a vineyard and getting Wine from it. I was so shock to see how they stepped on the grapes to bring out the juices. I mean, how clean can women or men’s feet be with all the possibilities of fungus and bacteria, yet the wine cleanses them.
From what I see, Noah will need at least 4 to 7 years to grow a vineyard and a further 2 years more or less to get the wine out of the grape juices.
So altogether it would be at least 5 to 8 years (the year they were in the Ark) before Noah can be drunk on the wine unless we say he spoke it into existence. Don’t you think it would be reasonable to say they did have children as recorded in 9:18, that Ham was the father of Canaan. Now let us go to the verse which this false prophet tried to insert to lend strength to their false interpretation:-
(Lev 18:8)  The nakedness of thy father's wife shalt thou not uncover: it is thy father's nakedness.
(Lev 18:29)  For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people.

Look seriously at Leviticus 18:8. It simply means sleeping with the father’s wife. It would be incest if the wife is also the mother. If she is not the mother, but a second wife (for whatever reasons, as the first wife could have died earlier and the father took a second wife. The verse says “wife”. It did not say concubines. In fact one minister even proposed that it could be Noah’s second wife that Ham has relationship with!!! See how further and further people get away from the Word when they speak untruths (non biblical, no foundation in scriptures and we can call it a bottom less pit of hell). Does this verse mean that the father and mother is sleeping together and that the wife is naked? Because when Shem and Japheth heard this, they took a large covering, walking backwards they covered their naked father, Noah who was drunk. This is what the scripture stated and this is what I believed, nothing is needed to add to the Word. Some may thing if it is that simple, why do Shem and Japheth have to cover him up? It is no big deal to see the father’s naked? Now that is what I called “reasoning”. Eve was the first one to reason against the Word and she died and became the Tree of Death, as all that came from her have to die.  Never reason with the Word. It says they walked backwards to avoid looking and covered the naked father. Nothing more and nothing less.
Next we determined the 3 sons as to who is the oldest and who is the youngest. Do the scripture has the answer? Yes of course. In Chapter 9, we read:-
(Gen 9:20)  And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard:
(Gen 9:21)  And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent.
(Gen 9:22)  And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.
(Gen 9:23)  And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness.
(Gen 9:24)  And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him.
(Gen 9:25)  And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.
(Gen 9:26)  And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
(Gen 9:27)  God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.

(time break: I shall post what I've written so far and comes back later to fill in the other half and correct any grammatical or typo errors). As a form of exercise, who is the oldest and who is the youngest?

 Restarting, have any of you found the answer as to who is the eldest and who is the youngest of the three sons of Noah. Did Noah’s wife ever give birth again? Why not? Was Noah too old to bear more children or did the wife like Sarah was too old to give birth anymore? If the wife is passed the age of child bearing, how could incest produce a Canaan as the false doctrine purported to imply? So when cornered you know what a message pastor said to me? Maybe Noah took another younger wife? So ok, show me the scriptures!
So what exactly did happen, Bro Peter, you are now curious to ask.  My answer to you is simple, listen to your prophet give you the best and only answer on what did transpire. He said in the sermon Serpent Seed:-
197       †        Now, Noah and his sons which come out, Ham, Shem, and Japheth, come out in the righteous line. How did the seed ever get over? The seed come over in the ark, just like it did in the beginning through the woman, their wives. They carried the seed of Satan through the ark, just as Eve packed the seed of Satan to give birth to Cain, through the woman. You put them women in your platforms for preachers, the Bible condemning it. Paul said, "If any man thinks himself to be a prophet or even spiritual, let him acknowledge that what I write is the commandments of the Lord; but if he be ignorant, just let him be ignorant."
What did your prophet said in those letters highlighted? That the two wives packed the Serpent Seed before they entered the Ark as Eve packed the Serpent seed before Adam came to her.  Who are the two? Ham was one of them for sure. Japheth must be the other one and we will see why later as our study comes together in one piece, one truth and one certainty. That was why the birthright went to Shem. He did not have to sell any porridge like Jacob for it because of the unrighteous acts of his two older brothers by marrying the daughters of Cain. Esau in fact took the daughters of Heth (who were from the Canaan lineage) as his wives and it caused Rebekah no end of troubles too.
We moved to Genesis 10 for the answer as to who is older. In Chapter 9, we already heard that Ham was the younger son, so he was not the youngest nor the oldest.
Watch this verse in Chapter 10:-
(Gen 10:21)  Unto Shem also, the father of all the children of Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder, even to him were children born. 
It says here that Japheth was the elder to Shem. Some theologians were in fact trying to prove that this verse says Shem was the elder!! Why? Why? Because they know the oldest son or whoever is the first born keeps the Birthright as in Esau and Jacob. So now do you have the answer as to why Shem has the birthright? Because both elder brothers took wives of the daughter of Cain. Mrs Noah was not a daughter of Cain because Noah was righteous and did not marry one as the false doctrine tried to make you think. We again see the falsehood when we consider the age of Canaan who was the first son of Ham.
But Chapter 10 showed Canaan was mentioned as the last name? So was Japheth?
(Gen 10:1)  Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood. 
See the order, Shem (the youngest), Ham (the younger) and Japheth (the oldest). Now look at the sons of Ham in the same order:-
(Gen 10:6)  And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan.

(Gen 9:18)  And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan.
(Gen 9:22)  And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.

I find it a bit odd that when the scriptures are so clear as to Ham already being the father of Canaan, when they came out of the Ark, and repeated as a confirmation that Ham already got his eldest son, Canaan as a young boy at the time  when he (Ham) reported his father’s nakedness to his two brethren. If you have some of the theological commentaries, they were puzzled that Canaan was cursed instead of Ham who was the one who saw his father’s nakedness. One did write that perhaps Canaan saw his grandfather naked first and reported to Ham his father who did not immediately cover him but instead reported the matter to Shem and Japheth.

This is where our false doctrine creeps in thinking that there are no scriptures to protect this Word from being misinterpreted. Scriptures answer only to scriptures not men's conjectures as trying to introduce that Canaan was the by product of the Union of Ham and his mother. Only those who are not well taught in the scriptures buy their idea. Why?

First for Noah to curse Canaan and mentioned him by name before he was even borne or conceived at that point shows Noah to be a prophet even when drunk or that he woke from his drunkeness. Do you know why Noah drank in the first place, ask your false prophets. How did Noah know that Ham will call his name Canaan? Why not simply take the scripture and be certain that Canaan was already born before this nakedness incident. It can take 5 to 8 years before Noah got wine to drink. you mean to say there were no children born to the 3 sons within this period. What about that one year in the Ark? Did not Brother Branham said the wives packed the seed already when they went into the Ark.

I will stop here to let the reader ponder over these things and pray to God for the true answers which is always the simple answer. We shall see this later and as a form of exercise, let us ask ourselves why was Canaan cursed and not Ham? Most true message believers will know the answer simply.........How about you? Are you a real believer ............?

Have anyone got the right answer? Don't ask the false prophets. They already gave you the wrong answer and said it was a product of incest. In this they do harm to themselves by adding and taking away from the Word. God said curses will be added and blessings will be taken away. That is how serious when you introduce poison to the people. Anything outside the Word of God is poison and the first being that did that was inspired by Satan, the Serpent when he just added one word, Ye shall NOT surely die. I tell you now, they shall surely bring death by purporting to have a higher revelation than God's prophet. That I am certain.

Hint No 1: It spelt L O V E

Hint No 2: Consider the case of the Prodigal Son

To get your answer as to why Noah cursed Canaan.

30th Jan 2012

Hint No 3: When Adam transgressed, did God curse Adam? If yes, why? If No, why?

Rom_5:14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.

And Jesus said, to you is given to know the mysteries:-

Luk_8:10 And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand.

Final Answer: No, God did not curse Adam but He cursed the earth instead. Not so with the Serpent, God cursed it to crawl on the ground and dust shall be it's meat from that moment in Genesis 3:14 onwards.

See, Noah being perfect cannot have chosen a Cainite wife. Don't let the false prophets pull this false interpretation over your eyes. Else God will not call him perfect nor will God chose him to escape in the Ark. Mrs Noah was already old in years so there were no further records of her giving birth to another child. See how Japheth lose that birthright? He did take a daughter of Cain as his wife! And that is why the prophet said, their wives (plural) not one but more than one and we know both Noah and Shem are honourable men. Hence the theologians may not understand why Canaan was cursed but we message believers do. He is serpent seed being the product of aldultery not incest as the false prophets claimed. In fact, that is why they also cannot accept the prophet's interpretation that the Tree of Life is Christ Himself and that the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil was the casting of Satan (yes the church age book clearly said it was Satan and that book is totally endorsed by Brother Branham before he allowed it to be published) to the Earth when Satan becomes the squatter in the land and goes about as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. Are you one of them he devoured? Don't be. Get the baptism of the Holy Ghost ..........then he cannot come after you because he has to be your brother first if he wants to do that.............Hear Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.......or simply "He that is in you". Don't let the false prophet tell you it is old manna. That is a lie. It is like saying Paul's gospel is also old manna.
