And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.(Genesis 8:20-21) KJV
Noah’s flood pictures the cleansing that we receive symbolically in baptism. The Earth was baptized and regenerated. Harmful pollutants which had been accumulating since the fall of man were washed into the oceans.

And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.(Luke 10:18) KJV

Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve.(Luke 22:3) KJV
And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.(Revelation 12:3, 9) KJV
Satan is described as a great red dragon, but he also entered Judas Iscariot. Obviously a great red dragon didn’t enter Judas Iscariot, so how did Satan do it?

Thou didst divide the sea by thy strength: thou brakest the heads of the dragons in the waters.(Psalms 74:13) KJV
We’re learning that the process of creation was based on spheres of life, not on the passage of heritable traits from generation to generation.

Then Cain went away from the presence of the LORD and settled in the land of Nod, east of Eden.(Genesis 4:16) ESV
He drove out the man, and at the east of the garden of Eden he placed the cherubim and a flaming sword that turned every way to guard the way to the tree of life.(Genesis 3:24) ESV
The east of Eden may seem like a vague reference, particularly if we were asking for directions, but it may be the location of an intriguing event which jump started the development of technology.

By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.(Ezekiel 28:16-19) KJV
All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.
According to Ezekiel the anointed Cherub had finely crafted garments and played musical instruments. He was stationed on the East of Eden. Remember that.

You were in Eden, the garden of God; Every precious stone was your covering: The sardius, topaz, and diamond, Beryl, onyx, and jasper, Sapphire, turquoise, and emerald with gold. The workmanship of your timbrels and pipes Was prepared for you on the day you were created.
“You were the anointed cherub who covers; I established you; You were on the holy mountain of God; You walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones. You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, Till iniquity was found in you.(Ezekiel 28:13-15) NKJV

Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man. And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings. And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf’s foot: and they sparkled like the colour of burnished brass. And they had the hands of a man under their wings on their four sides; and they four had their faces and their wings. Their wings were joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward. As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle. Thus were their faces: and their wings were stretched upward; two wings of every one were joined one to another, and two covered their bodies.(Ezekiel 1:5-11) KJV
We’re going to use the Cherubim as a case study of the benefit of using spherogenetic systematics as a deductive tool. According to scripture Cherubim have mostly mammalian, not reptilian, characteristics.

By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.(Hebrews 11:3) NKJV
