7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings.
Figs are healing in property, but nothing would heal mankind
. They experienced a rendezvous with Satan
, or a meeting of the mind
with the personification of evil, God's arch enemy. Their eyes opened to his existence and realm
. His being appeared desirable, an oh so beautiful angel of light
that cleverly fooled Eve
. She had no idea what evil was, or that her spirit, then connected to God, would die
, enslaving her soul to satisfying her flesh
. After all, didn't Satan appear as light? Didn't he offer her wisdom? Was he not perhaps wiser than God
or at least more generous than God? He would gladly teach man the bad as well as the good, giving them the choice to accept either one. In other words, she thought he offered greater control of her destiny
and a broader spectrum of wisdom. She bowed her knee to the knowledge of Satan
. This was the original sin
God on the other hand created man to be happy, healthy children with beautiful spirits He could interact with
. He gave them the planet, designed a garden for their home
and gave them dominion over everything
on this earth, but as for evil … no! They were not to touch Satan. They were not to even take the smallest taste of the fruit of his mind
. God, who is a Spirit, was not warning them physically. He was warning them spiritually. Do not pay attention or tune your mind into Satan
. He will feed you wrong thoughts
, the fruit of pride and rebellion, evil, disconnecting you from Me
. God is holy, His children were also created holy in His image
. Had the mind of Adam and Eve continued to feed on the thoughts of God alone, they and all their descendants would have remained the happy, healthy, perfect children He intended to populate the earth with and establish a godly perfect Kingdom
. They and their descendants were to rule through the wisdom and love of God. They originally enjoyed an intimate family relationship
with Father who visited them daily and could receive counsel always from God's Word, the Tree of Life
. Who or what was the Word?
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 He was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. (Side note: Satan can only copy, he cannot create. Copies are inferior to the original.)
So, what kind of world
could we be living in today if we would have sought the mind of God? How different would our personal lives have been? In the beginning all of creation blended smoothly together, was in total harmony
with one another as they were created a part of God's perfect plan
for this whole universe. Everything had a place, everything had its own position, was accurately perfect. There was no conflict. What ruined it
? The interjection of Satan's thoughts to the mind of man
, thoughts based on his evil wisdom tainted by pride, and his desire to be in control
. He wanted to be God. Unfortunately it is this wisdom that the existing world is built on
. All the works of man since the garden fall are governed by the imperfect calculations of the enemy
and fed as thoughts to us by the supernatural beings
he is prince over. Jesus called them unclean spirits
. Again, it is their thoughts that are transmitted to man
concerning the things of this world. It is all we today have ever known. Satan's tainted desires and his cruel will have become second nature to us. For thousands of years mankind has trudged through life, the victim of the dark side of the supernatural
. We, as well as our ancestors, were innocent of the fact that we manifested or brought to fruition the will of the enemy
or that our great ideas were not our own, but that of a rebel that came to kill, steal and destroy
17 "Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill.
18 For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled.
13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan to be baptized by him.
14 And John tried to prevent Him, saying, "I need to be baptized by You, and are You coming to me?"
15 But Jesus answered and said to him, "Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness." Then he allowed Him.
16 When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him (He was now a new creature, anointed to continue to fulfill His place in the plan of God for man's restoration, able to make the walk for Christianity).
17 And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased (born a Jew, but truly a Son, the Seed of Abraham yet a Sacred Seed)."
Galatians 3:16, 27, 29
16 Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, "And to seeds," as of many, but as of one, "And to your Seed," who is Christ.
27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
29 And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
15 Having disarmed principalities and powers, He (Christ) made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.
They have no legal right to us!
He set those under the law free, Christianity free, all that believe in Him free
. Even those in graves at His resurrection came up free from the ground to show the world the power of God
to set even the dead free.
52 and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised;
53 and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many.
Side note: don't let the terminology fool you. We say someone is stubborn as a mule, clever as a fox, eats like a pig etc? We know we are speaking of people, even though we refer to them as animals. When we call someone sugar, or honey, we still understand, they are people. We are in God's image. He does the same thing. He calls the devil a serpent or dragon
, a tree of good and evil, yet we know who He is referring to. When He speaks of the Tree of Life we understand He means Jesus
, who gave His life to give us back our freedom
to be children of God! So where do we start? We lay all we have been taught down and begin to walk according to scripture, according to the voice of the Lord through the prophetic word, according the the still, small voice within us
that guides and leads us to perfect freedom.
In closing, Jesus as a Bright Morning Star is rising in our hearts
to shine the light of God on the enemy lurking there. As He shows us the fruit of the enemy
, anger, lust, pride, control, etc. renounce it, refuse it and do the opposite. God says our thoughts are not His so our ways are not His ways
. Let's change that! Let's turn on the enemy
! As humanity let us turn on the adversary
that has been causing us to destroy ourselves and this planet all these years. Let's rumble
as the kids say, meaning let's gang up and fight! It's war
! A time to pray
, a time to praise
, a time for big change
. Armageddon is here
, heaven and hell come against each other through our minds
, but the promise of God is, we win
