For instance, Eve chose the wrong knowledge
, now we are trapped in that same tainted knowledge
or thinking today. We call it intellect
. It will fail us. It is good to a degree, but evil as well
, as is its donor, Satan. He successfully encouraged Eve to break God's law
stating plainly "do not eat the knowledge of the Tree of Good and Evil" meaning, do not let him feed you his lies
, do not eat the fruit of his lips
. The Tree of Life, the mind of Christ
, was readily available to her, and we can see how her wrong choice continues to affect all of mankind today
5 For God knows that in the day you eat of it (knowledge) your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil." (this is the lie of all lies)
6 So when the woman saw that the tree (of good and evil) was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes (an angel of light), and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. (See how others are affected?)
We as her descendants are fed this tainted knowledge
from the cradle on. If we sin, and it is almost inevitable that we will because of our misguided knowledge, Satan has the right to attach strings to us
also. Therefore our actions are many times just as detrimental to us as Eve's were to her and again it affects others as well.
1 "The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, because the LORD has anointed Me to preach good tidings (He taught truth to overcome Satan's lies) to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound (He releases the cords of iniquity from us through His ministers, and sets us free of demonic oppression or influence);
2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn, (spirits of grief, depression, stress etc.)
3 To console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified."
Matthew 24:36 says,
36 "But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. (Pretty plain, is it not?)
32 "But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.
33 Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time is. (Even more understandable.)
40 Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect." (doesn't get much clearer than that)
These scriptures were penned by three eye witnesses, Matthew, Mark and Luke, who walked with Christ personally and heard Him teach these things, yet people still claim they know the exact times? Hello? Do you see the lie
? Satan is still saying, "You can be like God", and people are falling for it today in huge numbers. They are nothing more than Satan's toys
just as Eve was.
At the enemy's urging, man twists and turns the scriptures
, figures mathematically and researches history, but as Enoch, the 7th
from Adam prophesied, they figure to their error. The sad result, these predictions erode man's faith in God
when it isn't God letting them down. Mankind is fooled
, because they want to control their own destiny
and intellectualize life for themselves. It is the original sin
. They want to be wise, make their own decisions and decipher when and how God will carry out His plans. Well guess what, the Word says God's ways are not our ways
. So how can intellect, gleaned from the Tree of Good and Evil
not be imperfect and at odds with the Lord?
While we are at it, let's expose a few more lies.
11 But the meek shall inherit the earth, and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
Ecclesiastes 1:4 shows us another falsehood:
4 One generation passes away, and another generation comes; but the earth abides forever.
5 Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
Oops, there it is again. They are not going to heaven
. Out of the mouth of two or three witnesses the Word is established, remember? In case you are not familiar with the scripture I just quoted, I will include it.
II Corinthians 13:1
1 This will be the third time I am coming to you. "By the mouth of two or three witnesses every word shall be established."
With that scripture in mind, let us read Revelation 11:18.
18 The nations were angry, and Your wrath has come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that You should reward Your servants the prophets and the saints, and those who fear Your name, small and great, and should destroy those who destroy the earth." (again, the earth remains)
1 Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
2 He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; (for a thousand years people will be fed truth without Satan's intervention)
Luke 12:32 shows us this was God's plan all along.
32 "Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. (Remember, Jesus taught us to pray, His Kingdom come, His will be done "on earth" as it is in heaven.)
4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away."
No strings attached!
