The Chinese characters consist of individual ‘radicals’ that make up words. When these words are broken down to their individual form, we can see the evidence of creation written into their language. All who ever learned the Chinese language has had this information deeply embedded into their sub conscience of the working of God and life. An example of this is to take the Chinese word for boat. By putting together the radicals ‘eight’, ‘person’, ‘life’, and ‘vessel’ you come up with the character for ‘boat’. Hence, the example shown below;
Eight people in a life saving vessel = boat; which we know as ‘Noah’s ark’ The Chinese written language has it’s origin of before 2,000 B.C, coinciding with the great dispersion of races around 2218 B.C, from the tower of Babel. The language was written when the Chinese people were monotheistic in culture, long before Taoism, Confucianism and Buddhism came about 2,000 years later. Because of this timing, they must of had accurate records from word of mouth (beside Noah living 450 more years after the flood, who knew Enoch, who knew Adam). Their culture geographically stood away isolated from the rest of the world for over 2,000 years.
A look at a few parallels of Genesis and the Chinese language
Genesis 2:7 “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground,and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul”
To make the word for create; you would make a person alive from the dust (or earth), talking and walking.
Gen 2:8 “And the Lord planted a garden east in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.”
The origin of the first man was in the west, then placed in the east.
Gen 2:18 “And the Lord God said, It is not good for man to be alone; I will make a help-meet for him.”
Necessity (want, important, desire or must) was for a woman to be with the first man.
Gen 2:19 “And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them..”
God with the first man in the garden was a blessing or happiness.
Gen 2:22 “And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from the man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.”
We see here that Adam and Eve; two people in the first home made the plan of God complete.
Gen 3:25 “And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.”
The first two breathing people of the earth enclosed in paradise formed garden.
Gen 3:1 “Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, Yea, has God said, You shall not eat of every tree in the garden?”
There was a secret knowledge moving towards man. Under the cover of trees he became tempter.
Gen 3:6 “And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant for the eyes, and a tree desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit of it, and did eat…”
Desire came from the woman among the trees. In the beginning sin came from the woman eating from this secret knowledge.
Gen 3:8 “And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden.”
Adam and Eve hid themselves behind the trees so that their bodies would look like a tree to someone in passing.
Genesis 7:10 “And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth.”
Noah with his 3 sons and their wives were the 8 people were united together on the earth during the great flood.
The eldest son or older brother, was the spokes person. To put him with God meant to pray.
When the eldest son exchanged words, the character to speak, say or tell initiated from there.
Genesis 11:1 “And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.”
united; became mankind with one voice.
Genesis 11:3, 4 “…let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly….let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven…”
Here you have mankind united as one, undertaking a project to build a tower from brick.
Genesis 11:9 “..the Lord did there confound the language of the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.”
God confused the tongues of the men and they went away from there.
The first great migration were men divided walking away to the west. The written language in China literally preaches the bible. I’ll add just a few more of many here.
The Spirit of God (3 persons,one God) moved upon the face of the waters and made man in their image. Gen 1:2,26I (me) under the lamb (sheep) am righteous! In the old testament (Gen 3:21) coats of skins were made with blood sacrifices. But Jesus, the Lamb of God (Rev 5:12)
The Chinese record of events were recorded in their pictographic and ideographic types long before the books of Moses (The Torah) were written almost a millennium later. The seven day week they used could well have stemmed from their acquaintance with the original creation week. The Shu Ching (the Chinese book of history found secreted in the wall of Confucius’ house when it was torn down in 140 B.C.) contain a number of records from the first three dynasties and their predecessors. At the time the Emporer took part in bi-annual sacrifices as high priest to the Creator of heaven and earth, known to them as Shang Ti.
An ancient Chinese prayer from the Emporer:
“Of old in the beginning, there was great chaos, without form and dark. The five elements [planets] had not begun to revolve, nor the sun and the moon to shine. In the midst of it there existed neither forms nor sound. You, O spiritual Sovereign came forth and Your presidency, and first divided the grosser parts from the purer. You made heaven; You made earth; You made man. All things with their reproductive power got their being”.
“Your sovereign goodness is infinite. Great and small are sheltered [by your love]. As engraven on the heart of Your poor servant is the sense of Your goodness, so that my feeling cannot be fully displayed. With great kindness You do bear with us, and not withstanding our demerits, do grant us life and prosperity. But now, O Lord, You are our Father; we are the clay, and you our Potter and we all are the work of Your hand… Your sovereign goodness is infinite. As a potter, you have made all living things. Your sovereign goodness is infinite. As engraven on the heart of your poor servant is the sense of your goodness, so that my feeling cannot be fully displayed. With great kindness you do bear with us, and not withstanding our demerits, do grant us life and prosperity.”The Emporer would continue, “You have vouchsafed, O Ti, to hear us, for you regard us as a Father, I your child, dull and unenlightened, am able to show forth my dutiful feelings…
Confucius ( a contemporary of both Lao-tze and Guatama) at age 50, converted to these words of God.
