Nimrod: The Mighty Hunter

                       Genesis 10: 8-9

      8  Cush begot Nimrod; he began to be a mighty one
         on the earth.
      9  He was a mighty hunter before the LORD; therefore
           it is said, "Like Nimrod the mighty hunter before
           the Lord."

            Why is Nimrod called the mighty hunter??

       * Adam and Eve were told not to eat of the tree
         of knowledge of good and evil.
       * After they ate of the tree, they realized that they
         had sinned before God and were naked. Adam and Eve
         proceeded to clothe themselves with fig leaves.

       * God would not allow that to be, so he killed and
         clothed them with animal skins.
                          Genesis 3:21

       21  Also for Adam and his wife the LORD God made tunics of
           skin and clothed them.

        * "The wages of sin is death." Romans 6:23
          Something has to die and it's not going to be a 
          fig plant . . .blood will be spilled.

        How many bears, lions, elephants, etc.
          are there in the Garden of Eden?
                        (Answer: 2 of each)

       *  So, when God killed animals for clothes, for example
                a lion and/or a bear, it was really :

                          THE FIRST LION

                          THE FIRST BEAR

       *  After the death of Adam & Eve, the clothes were 
          taken and placed into the Cave of Treasures.
          (This is psudepigraphic, so if there is concern over this 
           statement,logic dictates that the clothes were taken and 
           placed in a safe place.)

       *  When Noah loaded the Ark, these and other artifacts
          were gathered along with the animals.

       *  All of these artifacts would eventually be passed
          onto Japheth, Noah's first born son per Jewish law.

       *  When they departed the Ark, Ham, Noah's second born
          son stole these artifacts.

       *  Nimrod, who is Ham's grandson, inherited these 
          clothes. (Gen 10: 6-9)

                  Why is Nimrod a mighty hunter?

       *  When Nimrod wears the clothes that God made for
          Adam and Eve when he goes hunting, the bears would
          recognize the fur of THE FIRST BEAR, or the lions
          would recognize the skin of THE FIRST LION, etc.

       *  These animals would immediately become submissive 
               to the person wearing these clothes.
