Last Segment-6

18 But I say, surely they have never heard, have they? Indeed they have;

Their voice has gone out into all the earth,
And their words to the ends of the [b]world.”

 (Romans 10:17)


A revelation occurred when the wife of the man took the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil. There was no convincing the woman otherwise, it was either believe the deception of the serpent or remain in perfect harmony with God. That deception is still occurring today…the words of that serpent are still in the ears of this world. People often question why a follower of Christ imposes their belief on this world, or are annoyed at the concern that someone is going to Hell. The reason for that concern is the revelation of Eve—a repercussion.

At the time of the first man and woman before their deception, everything existed in perfect harmony with God. But at their deception something just didn’t seem to add up. Because the consequence by their disobedience was to die. And they didn’t die but seemed to have…upgraded, “behold the man has become like one of Us knowing good and evil;…”. What? So…they become like God, or as…gods?

Hold up. Let’s go back one verse, verse 21 of Genesis 3. How did God make garments of skin for Adam and his wife Eve, to clothe them? Did something need to die? Reader, you and I both know that we are alive to eventually die, but what is death? Death is our flesh of sin that we live in. We inherited it from the skin of Adam and Eve. But this skin is different from flesh, it was given as a covering of grace, because we shouldn’t exist. We are not worthy to exist unless God is our reason for…Love. To love someone is to willingly die for them.

We inherited a seed of life from this death we live because of the Love of God. There is only one worthy to die that we might live, and that one, my dear reader, is the Son of God…Jesus! No one, nothing proves worthy of salvation for creation other than the innocence of God. That is the only way to transfer innocence. That an innocent one die for the guilty one. The sin of man and woman attempts to justify their wrong. Whereas love understands to tell the truth. The revelation of Eve is in her seed (Genesis 3:15). That seed, was the seed of God by way of the Holy Spirit of God. Jesus Christ is that seed born innocent by the virgin Mary. Because he was not born of the seed of Adam…which is to inherit sin.

God took the blame of our sin. Jesus remained silent when acused falsely, although innocent, He took the blame because it was decided by God before the beginning. That was the mystery. God decided how He would save us before we decided to break His command. That is the revelation of Eve—the revelation of creation is the innocent body and blood of Jesus, as the perfect Word of God for reconciliation to God. It is by grace through faith in the resurrection of Jesus from the dead by the power of God that a believer is saved. He is preparing a place for those that are saved, right now.


…the hope of the gospel that you have heard, which was proclaimed in all creation under heaven… (Colossians 1:23)

 

The Mother Of All Living

Segment-5

“…because she was the mother of all the living.” (Genesis 3:20)

I’ve experienced the pain of passing a kidney stone… It was excruciating! And, I’ve been told that, that it is the closest resemblance of pain a man can experience to a woman giving birth. Personally, I don’t think it compares—even though there is a sense of pride by having that relation.

After reviewing the previous segment, hope to have appropriately used the marital love scenery between man and woman (male and female) to describe the level of intimacy God has for His Wife (creation). That intimacy exemplifies to educate the soul about love and how that Spirit of Love is producing life to our vessels of flesh. You should be able to see how a Father and Mother (God) breathed genesis into the first human being. We are all made in the image and likeness of God (man and woman, male and female). The art of a man and woman features the mind, heart, and nature (Personality) of God as Love living in everything to apply reason, purpose, and practicality. I believe this to be so important to understand as this world has been twisted into a falsity. There is a purely innocent act of pleasure to procreate, but has, and is…become more and more perverted with unnatural desires for release to an addiction. Our tool of technology is dangerous, but useful with the right skill. An ability to provide a plethora of information that connects each of us to one simple understanding… We’re addicted. Addicted to sin. But the skill manipulating the tool of technology is more importantly resolved by rejoicing—in the providence of God. Take biology as an example (use google to research biology).  There are several branches to the tree of biology, but I’ve become fixated on the cell. Research, ‘What is a cell‘ and find out how cells “…are the building blocks for all living things”. In the process of my learning more about the cell find a peculiar theme that dominates the study: conversion. What happens to a person who smokes? Their lungs convert to tar. Those cells are revealing information that relay a message, “This is not natural. You! Are! Going! Tooo! DIE…”. Cells seem to be the “tattletales” of your body’s condition, reporting the news whether heathy or unhealthy of and for your survival. Cells also describe your personality. By this, I see, the providence of God. Can you see the reason why life is conscious? How not only that we’re aware of being alive, but how we can relate to God and God relate to us? Can you see the reason we can understand right from wrong? We’re not limited by the ground of which we were made, but limited by the grace through faith in Whom we believe converts us—conversion. The power of God.

Is it difficult, or possibly scary, for you to be…subjectively objective…of an eternity not your own—living in the mind of God for the purpose of God as a child of God? And is it scary because your not in control of God, or…is it that, you are not the judge of your own reality? Time in the Word of God, is time with Jesus in the Kingdom of God… You begin to learn the environment of eternality! An evil nature is lived as rejecting the truth of our purpose; which is described as denying a relationship with God by choosing our own (sin) nature verses subjecting ourselves to our original nature (before sin); meaning that we are a conflicted nature in need of restoration due to inheriting condemnation at the beginning. That condemnation is by deception, but reconciliation is by revelation of conception (conceiving the Word of God)—the Spirit of the living God is then being produced in the believing soul as a baby waiting to be born. (Just as the Spirit of God hovered over His creation {the virgin Mary} to conceive Jesus, the Child of God—so too, do we Christians, conceive the Word of God {Jesus} to live reflecting the testimony of Truth and Love so that you might believe and have everlasting life)

20 Now the man called his wife’s name [h]Eve, because she was the mother of all the living. (Genesis 3)

Why did the man name his wife, Eve, and why “was” she the mother of all the living. Can you see the truth within our nature and reason to believe? (God is revealing the Character of Himself, *Himself*, meaning a perfect relationship between a male and female God, no different that a woman taking on the last name of her husband). So a Holy Invisible God is nurturing us into a life of understanding. Understanding the eternal nature of God by enlightenment of revelation through inspiration of the Holy Spirit of God. If you are choosing to deny that understanding… Why?

Intimacy with my Woman

Segment-4

Women, what do you think the man meant by exclaiming “…bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh”, and what do you think happened after that marriage ceremony? I think any man would say… sex. I mean…that’s what I’d be saying anyway, without meaning it perverted. Here are two adult created beings that I believe God is using to reveal the level of intimacy God has with us. A person who is “single” should be experiencing a much more in-depth level of intimacy with God because, there are no distractions and or stains polluted by this world’s view of marriage; it’s completely meditative and expressed by devotion in serving God (however that looks, I’ll ask a person that decided to be single and completely devoted in serving God – stay tuned).

24 For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. 25 And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed. (Genesis 2)

In light of the described marriage verses above, I see that the first man had matured to be ready for a family, a…Son. My train of thought takes me to a place—after this love scene—where I can envision the wife as being pregnant, but remember, the picture or imagery of this husband and wife is—God and Creation. In other words, God (Man) is the very seed implanted into a perfect Creation (Woman); that is the painting—as God is the artist—of what I see. The orgasm could be the reason for discovering the “Big Bang”! Just saying. But anyway, the material of what we see and experience is revealed as a child or children being born. Jesus Christ is that child of God, invisible, but alive, at the right hand of His Father. That is a reason for these verses below, I think…

15 [w]He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For [x]by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. 17 He [y]is before all things, and in Him all things [z]hold together. 18 He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything. 19 For [aa]it was the Father’s good pleasure for all the [ab]fullness to dwell in Him, 20 and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, having made peace through the blood of His cross; through Him, I say, whether things on earth or things in [ac]heaven.

21 And although you were formerly alienated and hostile in mind, engaged in evil deeds, 22 yet He has now reconciled you in His fleshly body through death, in order to present you before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach— 23 if indeed you continue in [ad]the faith firmly established and steadfast, and not moved away from the hope of the gospel that you have heard, which was proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, [ae]was made a [af]minister. (Colossians 1)

Why was she called, Woman?

Featured photo: Ben Jacobi www.bdjphoto.com 

Segment-3

22 The Lord God [t]fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man. 23 The man said,

“This is now bone of my bones,
And flesh of my flesh;
[u]She shall be called [v]Woman,
Because [w]she was taken out of [x]Man.”

(Genesis 2)


In the providence of God, I understand the—woman for man—to mean something beyond the mechanical act of reproduction (be fruitful and multiply). Because, why not just continue to make men as suitable helpers for maintaining the garden? And the simple truth, I believe, is… Love. Is not the personality and nature of God defined as Love? But, with that understanding… I also see an appropriation for the order and governance of that nature, because of—what is evil; meaning that every aspect of creation (until the enacted fruition of Lucifer) was in perfect harmony with God. But what happens in the event any part of creation attempts to become apart from the Creator—what becomes the nature of that ‘part’ of creation? Or… If any created *being* attempts to be as god apart from the true God, then… What becomes the nature of that god? Because there is only One True God that is defined as Holy, Good, Truth and Love. A nature apart from that God, is evil!

So, is it not appropriate for there to be … set consequences, a course that leads to Hell for that which is evil? Of which is automatically entrusted and determined by the True God? (Because believe me, I’d rather it be me condemned not to believe for the sake of every other person to believe and be saved). But that reasoning is a result of what God has done and is doing in me because of believing in His Word as transforming my character into the likeness and image of Jesus. Not because I’ve attained righteousness. But because of an actual relationship with an eternal God through time with His Son (Word of God), it may sound crazy, but Jesus is teaching me about the meaning of what is true.

What had happened in the heavens before that imperfect occurrence on Earth? An evil influence (desires) manifested from the hearts of angelic beings that are now imprisoned until the time of the end. But at the beginning there was only… Harmony. The pure and holy form of intimacy between God and Creation, Man and Woman, Groom (Christ) and Bride that produces the light [or experience] of life in perfect harmony with God as Love. Do we as finite beings assume God is not love and alone because we refuse to see and not believe the ordination of God by the nature of our imperfections? How else is creation going to understand the process of its making if not by the revelation of Jesus? I mean, come-on! How are babies made? So then how does creation exist? The reason she was called “Woman”, I believe, for three reasons:

∞ Wisdom

∞ Love

∞ Life

Which, I think, these three combined produces an enlightenment to an intimate relationship with God. A woman is the answer to how our universe is expanding. The answer to every phenomenon and anomaly. The very Person of God functions as a marriage. An invisible God is manifested through the nature of creation (be fruitful and multiply). In more words… God is the nature of a perfect man and woman multiplying/producing the creation of everything. An invisible Spirit (seed) planted in the womb of Creation. And, it is by that nature of love, we exist! But this is only revealed by the name of Jesus because God calls Him, Son…
