Hi again. We are going to tap on a few things in this segment in which I pray give you that inner drive to seek further in the assignments I give & seek further within yourself. After Creation was completed notice the 7th day was taken as a day of Rest! (cease work or movement in order to relax, refresh oneself, or recover strength.) This is something that has all but been lost in our society however, should without a doubt should still be observed. This is good teaching on Sabbath: The Sabbath Day (Remastered) – 119 Ministries – YouTube At the time of this Sabbath rest mankind was not required to observe as G-d took care of all things in the garden. And then came the “Fall into Temptation” or in better terms “disobedience and dishonoring of the Father“. The One rule asked of mankind and that slick willie Lucifer came along to show how he isn’t the only disobedient one in YHWH’s Kingdom. It is sad that still today his temptations start when, like Adam & Eve, we are young, immature, and so curious that we are easily led astray. Even sadder are the adults, who if honest do know better, have chosen to lead their young down the road of self indulgence, greed, and division. All in the name of success and power. Sorry that’s another post, let me get back on track. One thing I want to bring to attention to is when God began to question Adam and Eve concerning their sin (Gen. 3:11-13), they passed off the responsibility to someone else, committing yet another sin, lies and not taking responsibility for one’s actions. The Blame Game: Adam blamed Eve; she in turn blamed the serpent. And worse still that blame game has been carried down through time in the way many religions blame the woman. Which is inaccurate. Adam sinned, fully aware of his actions with Eve. The command was given to Adam prior to the creations of Eve. Genesis 2:16-18 therefore, “Adam was not deceived” (1 Tim. 2:14). No doubt that command was shared with Eve either by Adam or Yah himself. Further proof is Gen.3:6 which clearly shows Both chose by an act of their own will & desires to disobey the Father and fulfill their own desire. Those desires were encouraged by the temptation of Satan then “she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her.” That said, put the blame where it belongs, with that smooth talking liar Lucifer who provided the occasion for the entrance of temptation & disobedience into the world. The temptation itself falls into three categories which still hold true today: “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world” (1 John 2:16). All this said, your assignment is to continue and read Genesis 3 and Genesis 4. These chapters show there were consequences to man’s choices. They had rushed into the knowledge of good and evil – greed/selfishness/disobedience while still immature & yes, there Must be consequences. That being learning the hard way. If G-d had not done this mankind would take further advantage and Earth along with mankind would be destroyed. However, while he gave them authority on Earth, G-d did show Grace, Love, and Mercy in His willingness to show mankind The Way to get back on track. He did not just leave them. Gen. 3: 20 “The man called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all living.[g] 21 And the Lord God made for Adam and for his wife garments of skins and clothed them.” Then He, the Father showed even more grace in letting us know while it is now “all about our choices”, if we have Faith in Him, He will be there to help and guide us saying: Gen.4:7 “ If you do well, will you not be accepted?[b] And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door. Its desire is contrary to you, but you must rule over it.” Note: Sin’s desire is contrary to our design as we are created in His image and He let’s us know we Can rule over it. You see, G-d cannot and will not be a part of sin and destroying all creation but, if you choose to rule over greed, selfishness, etc. cultivating and walking in the Love that sustains all things, He is right there with you willing to fight the good fight.
My daughter said once, ” mankind ruined Earth’s beautiful garden” This is true and still holds true for many in mankind however, we do Not have to ruin Earth, ruin ourselves, or our neighbors. It is a Choice to Seek the Way of G-d and restore what has been damaged. That is done thru turning from & resisting evil with the Word(s) as one thinketh so he will walk. We can change our ways with that two edged sword and rule over temptations by the way speaking and living a life of Love, service, mercy, compassion, non-judgment, accepting All things are and were meant to be for the Good. We All have good & bad seed within, it is up to us which fruit we wish to cultivate and bring forth.
This year in 2021 we really, really need to choose to restore, cultivate & bring forth good fruit back to the Garden. I pray if you are reading my post that you take this to heart, sacrifice some, and together let’s do it.
Surely by now anyone with eyes to see can see how this verse is oh so true: Mark 3:25 “ if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.
