16 The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD's; but the earth He has given to the children of men.
28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth."
God also planted a garden, a beautiful paradise for man
called Eden that had everything Adam and Eve needed for a perfect existence
. All was very good, no sickness, pain, sorrow or death. Only eternal happiness was intended for God's little family
. The resources of the earth were readily available for us to use to build a perfect Kingdom
and we had eternity to enjoy the work of our hands. Nothing could limit us. We had the mind of Christ
, the knowledge that created all things in the first place to seek wisdom from
and go to for advice. All of earth was meant to be a beautiful paradise
for God's human family, all creation on it was created to be in harmony
with each other, man and God. In fact, our whole planet was in perfect motion with the rest of the universe
. All was good as it had been birthed through the perfect knowledge of God
. If mankind would have continued living life guided by God through His Word, His Truth, their Way and Life would have remained perfect forever. But no, we had to choose the knowledge of another being
. A defective one at that! Satan or Lucifer was his name
Genesis 3:5-6 reveals to us the lie of all lies and sadly all of mankind has fallen for it.
5 For God knows that in the day you eat of it (the knowledge of the tree of good and evil) your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God (this is the lie of all lies), knowing good and evil." (at this point their eyes were opened to sin)
6 So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes (Satan was beautiful, an angel of light), and a tree desirable to make one wise (lie number two), she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate (the same lies are being fed to us today by the same crafty being).
I Corinthians 3:18-20
18 Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise.
19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, "He catches the wise in their own craftiness";
20 and again, "The LORD knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile."
So in other words, all Eve gleaned from the tree of good and evil led to death
, corruption and decay, and for some strange reason man is still avidly seeking this knowledge today
! They surf all kinds of websites, watch TV, read worldly magazines, labor over textbooks etc all to be well informed. You see, we can reason, but only based on what we know. We can exercise our will as we please, but the accuracy of our actions and decisions depends on the source of the knowledge in our minds
. Satan's knowledge is based on the fleshly things of this world
and how to exist in his culture
. God's wisdom is based on the knowledge of His Son, His covenants
, the laws written on our hearts and minds
. He defines through scripture a plan for His culture
, a society in line with His Kingdom and will. Here again scripture gives us good advice.
6 For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be (it is tapped into the lawless tree of good and evil).
8 So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
Are they even familiar with the words in Revelation 22:14? I doubt it!
14 Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.
Daniel prophesied it in Daniel 12:4.
4 "But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase."
In fact, man is about to be brought full circle back to his beginnings as prophesied in Isaiah 11:6-9
6 " The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, the leopard shall lie down with the young goat, the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.
7 The cow and the bear shall graze; their young ones shall lie down together; and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
8 The nursing child shall play by the cobra's hole, and the weaned child shall put his hand in the viper's den.
9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.
