6. Time Span
From the creation of Adam to the destruction of the
Tower of Babel--about two thousand years.
7. Four Divine Institutions
The Divine Institutions were developed and attacked
in this first Age. Volition, Divine Institution Number
One, was attacked first in (Genesis, Chapter 3.) The attacks
on Marriage, Divine Institution number Two, and Family,
Divine Institution Number Three, are covered in (Genesis
6:1-4) -- the angelic infiltration. Finally, Nationalism
was attacked in the erection of the first "United Nations
building" and the formation of the original "United Nations
organization:-- the Tower of Babel (Gen. 11:1-9). God declared
it an abomination and destroyed it.
That which has been is that which will be, And that which has been
done is that which will be done. So there is nothing new under the sun.
