Why was she called, Woman?

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…

See you in the next segment…

 

 

 

 

Evaluating Faith

Featured photo: Ben Jacobi www.bdjphoto.com 

It will be short and to the point. A step into the ring of biblical hermeneutics coupled with conversation about a choice Adam had at the moment his wife presented him the forbidden fruit has me beat down against the fight to understand interpretation. I had left my first love. I was beside myself, alone…


and you have [a]perseverance and have endured for My name’s sake, and have not grown weary. But I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Therefore remember from where you have fallen, and repent and do the [b]deeds you did at first; or else I am coming to you and will remove your lampstand out of its place—unless you repent. (Revelation 2)

Oracles of God

Featured photo: Ben Jacobi www.bdjphoto.com 

Prayer is a place to go to empty the soul.  Where darkness is not judged by the light; condemned, to Hell.  But is a place to become invisible with God; completely vulnerable, as a child, broken before their parent, trusting it’s going to be okay when reasoning the pain away.  Sometimes the process to mend what was broken…is more painful than when the break itself occurred.  The experience is…  Difficult to bear.  But out of that pain produces character.  Now what of the pain of the Parent/s?  …Having to operate on their broken child screaming and lashing out “IT HURTS” because of the unexpected consequence.  That pain, brings a unique revelation.  God is mending to fix my spiritual brokenness…as my parent.  When I close my eyes to enter the closet of my soul and the darkness of my life closes in around me…  There comes a LIGHT!  That LIGHT reflects the glory of a transformed nature.  A new creation!  The light is operating on me through conviction.  The experience feels like Hell (whatever that place feels like) but just like a child would trust their parent to fix what is broken.  I trust this spiritual process for the sake of my salvation.  Emotions flood the system that produce questions compacted with surrender.  Exclaiming in anguish:  

I DON’T GET IT!!!  I DON’T!!  I DON’T UNDERSTAND!!!  I’M ANGRY!  IM SO ANGRY!!!  IS THIS WHAT LIFE IS!?  WHY WAS I ABUSED!?  WHY WAS I ABANDONED!?  WHY WASN’T I TAUGHT!?  WHY WASN’T THIS EXPLAINED!?  WHERE WAS MY CHOICE!?  MY PROTECTION!? WHAT IS THE POINT!?  I DON’T UNDERSTAND!?  YOU PROMISED!!!  YOU PROMISED!!!  YOU ARE AN ETERNAL GOD AND MY FATHER!  YOU KNEW MY LIFE BEFORE I KNEW MYSELF!  WHAT IS THE REASON FOR THIS PAIN!?  WHAT HAVE I DONE!?  WHAT DID I DO!?  AM I THE DEVIL!?  FORGIVE ME?  PLEASE! WILL YOU FORGIVE ME?  HELP ME!

Ben’s photo so beautifully depicts a difference between the darkness that compliments the light and the darkness on the cabin by the light.  The darkness on the cabin reflect my broken soul.  The light within the cabin is the work of God that has transformed my soul into a spirit that cries out “DAD”!  A evidential condition to every soul claiming Jesus for salvation.  So the experience of our broken lives are not without meaning.  In fact, the meaning for me is this…  Every decision I’ve made right or wrong is consequential.  Coming to the end of myself is the beginning of my existence.  Everything about who I am was nailed to the Only Son of God on His cross.  God is the Heavenly Father of Jesus Christ.  Jesus is the Son of God that bore my sinful flesh to the point of His cross.  Jesus obediently accepted to receive the consequence of my sin that should have killed me to Hell.  But not just killed me…  all the world!  Because none is capable of enduring a consequence of that magnitude other than God Himself in Christ Jesus!

Death is the result of sin but not everyone will die because of their Life received by acknowledging Jesus as their reason of and for salvation.  Because no one will be saved by any other name than His.  And, the only way of truly knowing that, is by conviction through the Holy Spirit that seals our fate.  Faith is the evidence of an invisible God at work in the life of a believer.  The evidence is judged by the fruit of our lives  The Holy Spirit of God is our Eternal Law Informant; letting us know we are dying for a reason; and with that understanding, teaching us how to conduct ourselves as a people saved by grace through faith.  God related to us by sending His only Son for our example to follow what pleases Him as our Father.  He was killed by sin at the beginning.  My God and Father knew it would cost the life of His only innocent Son to redeem a guilty one.

I hope that is making sense.  If not I pray you reason with me by going into a secluded place to pray.  And, before you move the tongue of your mind; address God in the Name of Jesus; then communicate about who you are; what’ been done to you and what you’ve done.  Listen with anticipation for His voice…  I promise, He does answer.

Sooo…  There is a man I know who reasoned with God for an example.  He reasoned with God for sake of a city much like the world is today.  I pray the reader will reason with God for the sake of their soul for salvation.  In Jesus Name…  Amen.


“And the LORD said, “The outcry of Sodom and Gomorrah is indeed great, and their sin is exceedingly grave. I will go down now, and see if they have done entirely according to its outcry, which has come to Me; and if not, I will know.” Then the men turned away from there and went toward Sodom, while Abraham was still standing before the LORD. Abraham came near and said, “Will You indeed sweep away the righteous with the wicked? Suppose there are fifty righteous within the city; will You indeed sweep it away and not spare the place for the sake of the fifty righteous who are in it? Far be it from You to do such a thing, to slay the righteous with the wicked, so that the righteous and the wicked are treated alike. Far be it from You! Shall not the Judge of all the earth deal justly?” So the LORD said, “If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare the whole place on their account.” And Abraham replied, “Now behold, I have ventured to speak to the Lord, although I am but dust and ashes. Suppose the fifty righteous are lacking five, will You destroy the whole city because of five?” And He said, “I will not destroy it if I find forty-five there.” He spoke to Him yet again and said, “Suppose forty are found there?” And He said, “I will not do it on account of the forty.” Then he said, “Oh may the Lord not be angry, and I shall speak; suppose thirty are found there?” And He said, “I will not do it if I find thirty there.” And he said, “Now behold, I have ventured to speak to the Lord; suppose twenty are found there?” And He said, “I will not destroy it on account of the twenty.” Then he said, “Oh may the Lord not be angry, and I shall speak only this once; suppose ten are found there?” And He said, “I will not destroy it on account of the ten.” As soon as He had finished speaking to Abraham the LORD departed, and Abraham returned to his place.”
~ ‭‭Genesis‬ ‭18:20-33


 

Session 3 – An Interviewing by God

Featured photo: Ben Jacobi www.bdjphoto.com 


Then his wife said to him, “Do you still hold fast your integrity? Curse God and die!” 10 But he said to her, “You speak as one of the foolish women speaks. Shall we indeed accept good from God and not accept adversity?” In all this Job did not sin with his lips. (Job 2)


I understand Job to be an illustration of our present day global suffering to the individual adversities each of us share.  Just as Job had experienced the loss of nearly everything, it wasn’t finished.  Evil has a strategic agenda to confuse the truth with lies, and thereby, challenges our devotion to what is good and righteous.  As long as our hearts receives the approval of those we care so deeply for rather than receiving from the only One Who matters, we’re lost and without understanding; in danger of fearing the wrath of God at the coming of His Son.

Although the wife of Job insists to “Curse God and die!“.  Job is not manipulated by the love he has for his wife; because God supplied and took away what was necessary for this process of understanding the truth of God.  Someone tell me.

  • How did Job come to life?  – Was it not through suffering?

11 Now when Job’s three friends heard of all this adversity that had come upon him, they came each one from his own place, Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite; and they made an appointment together to come to sympathize with him and comfort him. 12 When they lifted up their eyes at a distance and did not recognize him, they raised their voices and wept. And each of them tore his robe and they threw dust over their heads toward the sky. 13 Then they sat down on the ground with him for seven days and seven nights with no one speaking a word to him, for they saw that his pain was very great. (Job 2)


We will not find truth in succumbing to the flattery of friends, nor by believing the accusations against us by self-righteous friends.  However, as Job goes through the turmoil of Satan discovers the character of God and His immense power.  Don’t give up where you are and don’t make the mistake of being someone else’s “god” for the sake of easing their pain.  Live by the understanding that the grace given by God abounds the sins of your life.  Confess and contend with God, but understand this truth, Job repented in dust and ashes when God showed up!  Do you, or we, think, that our place is not the same as Job’s.  Or are you so arrogant as a son or daughter of Satan, to challenge the character of another based on what God has provided for them, and not you?  I pray this is not confused with partiality or being favored by what is given materially, for we all equally have the opportunity at receiving the gift of God.  What have you chosen over that gift?  

Interviewed by God – Session 2

Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came among them. The Lord said to Satan, “From where do you come?” Then Satan answered the Lord and said, “From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it.” The Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered My servant Job? For there is no one like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, fearing God and turning away from evil.” (Job 1)


Reader (listener), indulge me, you are the character of Job.  I, the writer, will entertain the character of Satan [….scary thought].


Then Satan answered the Lord, “Does Job fear God for nothing? 10 Have You not made a hedge about him and his house and all that he has, on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land. 11 But put forth Your hand now and touch all that he has; he will surely curse You to Your face.” 12 Then the Lord said to Satan, “Behold, all that he has is in your power, only do not put forth your hand on him.” So Satan departed from the presence of the Lord. (Job 1)


Take notice how “Satan” and “Jesus” refer to “God”.  What does it mean to fear God?

Satan:

•”Job, I see your potential and how the fruit of your integrity will produce a bountiful return.  Once dead; people will learn of this character you seem to possess, they will discover how God is good; the seed of your fruit will effect the world, but soon will become confused.”


20 Then Job arose and tore his robe and shaved his head, and he fell to the ground and worshiped. 21 He said, “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, And naked I shall return there. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away. Blessed be the name of the Lord.” 22 Through all this Job did not sin nor did he blame God. (Job 1)


Satan:

•”Interesting, surely you must be experiencing the weight of a heavy depression.  At this point I’ve distorted the view of right and wrong; knowledge of good and evil is my heaven; yet you think, or seem to have thought to own the right of understanding what is impossible for man to understand.  After all, you were sacrificing for your kids, why, thinking what?  That they would have favor with God and not die in their sins?  What of you, Job?  Do you think you’ll find favor with God by maintaining your integrity?  Now to get you vulnerable; vulnerable enough, to set you up, for my success.  I’ll need access to your soul.  It’s time to present myself again, before Jesus.”


Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came among them to present himself before the Lord. The Lord said to Satan, “Where have you come from?” Then Satan answered the Lord and said, “From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it.” The Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered My servant Job? For there is no one like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man fearing God and turning away from evil. And he still holds fast his integrity, although you incited Me against him to ruin him without cause.” Satan answered the Lord and said, “Skin for skin! Yes, all that a man has he will give for his life. However, put forth Your hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh; he will curse You to Your face.” So the Lord said to Satan, “Behold, he is in your power, only spare his life.” (Job 2)


Satan:

•”Ah Job, you may believe your skin God has rapped you in, preserves your life for salvation, but the sting of death is sin, and the sin of your beginning is mine.  I so look forward to devouring you; to manipulate your emotions, confuse your psyche, and inflict what you fear.  The salvation of preservation is my advantage to use as a means to set the world up at my right hand in the place called, Hell.  Don’t worry, Job. ‘You’re so important to me’.”

Interviewed by God – Session 1

Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind and said, “Who is this that darkens counsel By words without knowledge? “Now gird up your loins like a man, And I will ask you, and you instruct Me! (Job 38)


A true character of integrity is accomplished by humility.  Do you experience grasping at questions of meaning for your life, and or, life after death?  What does your past compare to Job’s?  And what does your current status or bodily condition compare to Job’s?  Have you reached a place of seeking the presence of the Almighty to explain reasons of things too wonderful for us to understand?  It may be because you’re being interviewed by God for either a promotion or demotion.


Then the Lord said to Job, “Will the faultfinder contend with the Almighty? Let him who reproves God answer it.” Then Job answered the Lord and said, “Behold, I am insignificant; what can I reply to You? I lay my hand on my mouth. “Once I have spoken, and I will not answer; Even twice, and I will add nothing more.” (Job 40)


What is the root cause for your reason to object God on His terms for hire?  What if God sees you perfect and upright, still choosing to turn away from evil despite the mark of sin in your life?  And, so, what if God permits Satan the test of sudden destruction on your livelihood, family, and health so that your spirit may be proved belonging to Him all along, saved, bearing the mark of salvation that was always present with you for eternity with Him.  Please, don’t bother sending God your resume.  He will come visit you where you are and examine for Himself the qualifications you have, to freely live, as God set in motion for you to receive.  Let us see how you will contend against God, to reprove God.

We need to remember the One, Who blessed us with what we have.  Don’t lose sight of God by the distraction of whatever kind of pain we’re presently experiencing.  He has provided the way for a promotion.  Stay tuned.

 

The Balance

Untitled-1-21-18_BenJacobi

Feature and Header photo: Ben Jacobi www.bdjphoto.com 


Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. 10 For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up. 11 Furthermore, if two lie down together they keep warm, but how can one be warm alone? 12 And if one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart. Ecclesiastes 4:9-12


It’s attractive … Isn’t it. To live like gods; being judge and juror of our very own live story; determining right from wrong and implementing those standards as laws to be enforced, or the ultimatum. Written off as insignificant like a stand alone tree waiting to die for the sake of being finished…..”what is the point?”. Swearing an oath to an unknown God to “tell the truth, nothing but the truth, so help me”. Complying with societies evolvement for the sake of harmony while it institutes the influence of a One World America, only, with multiple labels. Can you feel the desire to establish dominance? Intimidate by way of provoking to “fear” the one…that falls, alone. Evil says, “Now, I have control; their emotions are at my disposal, worship me!”. Again, Evil speaks, “The coin is my tact and their emotion…my desire.”. And once more, Evil utters, “How shall I groom this Wife of God’s Son for my pleasure, this, ‘mother of all living’ who stands alone?“.

God is the Canyon that provides shelter and a balanced environment for the Caddo Maple tree that signifies our creation is not alone; looking at our photo from Ben. As soon as we think ourselves to be something when we are nothing, we become vulnerable to the deception of not needing our shelter. When we are unlearned; undereducated about the way our emotional make-up is; leaves us without the shelter of God to protect our environment and for evil to achieve its’ purpose. Just as our countries are vulnerable to the seduction of sexy whispers to commit acts of violence…so too are we susceptible to the belief of correcting it, alone.


1 Brethren, even if anyone is caught in any trespass, you who are spiritual, restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness; each one looking to yourself, so that you too will not be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ. For if anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he deceives himself. But each one must examine his own work, and then he will have reason for boasting in regard to himself alone, and not in regard to another. For each one will bear his own load. The one who is taught the word is to share all good things with the one who teaches him. Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary. 10 So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith.”– Galatians 6:1-10


I pray we do not mistake knowing where our predator is and how to antidote the course of an evil nature, into good. As parents we either fail to appropriately educate our youth about their sexuality as they experience unfamiliar chemical processes within their bodies to practice self-control or shy away from it because our youth becomes blushed at finding out that we know, “what is going on”! This grievous failure as self-controlled mature adults carries over into prostitution, molestation, rape, murder, bestiality, lying, lawlessness, incarceration, suicide! WHERE IS OUR CARE?!! There are barriers, boundaries, and “SHELTER” for a reason! We need to educate and protect our youth! Also, on that same line of education and protection we need to immerse the love of God on the person or people that appears to be predators. But our predator does not come in the form of flesh and blood, but will use our flesh and blood to destroy and devour the lives around us to achieve its desire. We must master that! Let’s live in the balance of the God of our salvation in Jesus Christ!

A false balance is an abomination to the Lord,
But a just weight is His delight.
When pride comes, then comes dishonor,
But with the humble is wisdom. Proverbs 11:1-2

 

Unbelievers Transformation Process

Have we discovered the answer to the question of whether God took Enoch from his wife and children in the previous blog? It seems a bit contradictory if not only taken away from that which God joined together, but also from the consequence of tasting death like the rest of us. All have sinned, right? So why are we enduring the consequence of death rather than to continue on in life? Why doesn’t God just enlighten us to the truth about our need for salvation, then save us from death, and bring us to Himself explaining in the way we will understand without having to experience the process? Has anyone ever discovered the answers within the questions? Please consider predestined freewill and that God is not limited by the many words of mankind. We’ll come back to that.


Storm on the Plains

Header photo: Ben Jacobi www.bdjphoto.com 

Those considering themselves to be without belief please reconsider. This blog pleads with you to set aside your foresight and just breathe as you read. Don’t become worried or anxious about anything and don’t think “the author is making the mistake of not practicing what is written”. It is time to meet our Creator so please introduce your soul to the Holy Spirit of God. God, I pray for the soul reading this prayer and ask that the Spirit of Your living Word be in the midst of this writing, amen.

It is not through grandiose words in prayer that manifest the proof of God. Prayer is acknowledging that you can’t physically fly or breathe underwater, and that God is not a Genie to expect a wish from. God is the living knowledge about all of creation with a holy desire for all of creation; life’s order, design, chaos, condition, wisdom, love, and eternality. And with every breath…..we breathe life, given by God. So by living in unbelief are we emotionally responding by that choice or is it safeguarding behind the delusion of innocence to divert from the truth about our existence. And then how would we approaprately correct that? Does that mean to become weak and surrender for correction, or, run in terror from the emotional aspect of life — knowing we are all loved by God. If loved by God, what does that mean? To recognize we are vulnerable and mean nothing without God. How do we identify with being a believer now from the purpose we resorted to before? What does it mean to be conditioned as a believing Christian?

To become consciously aware that we are loved by God puts us at a “Fight or Flight” response. We will either fight against vulnerability or run from it because we are “wild”. Compare it to breaking a horse from the wild. In order to ride and navigate a horse we must break the pattern of its’ wild nature, and form a respected bond. Hopefully this process lets the horse know….its needed for a higher purpose; which would go against its natural ability to be wild by nature. Does the horse ever consider the power it has against the person trying to break its’ assumed natural response to be wild? A horse could easily kill the person hoping to submit it. What if horses had the knowledge of people and decided to break people for the horses agenda (planet of the horses)? Anyway, hold that train of thought because that is exactly what the serpent did to deceive the woman in the garden. And also what caused Mankind to kill God. Not because Mankind is more powerful than God, but because of the command not to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil didn’t apply to the (crafty) serpent. And without understanding being deceived, Mankind broke the command of their God given nature and killed the Son of God. To clothe Mankind with skin….something had to die. Our skin represents our sin and our sin represents our eternal condemnation and separation from God and that represents our death and death represents the dust of the ground and the dust of ground represents the condition of Mankind. Yet…God knew this…and we are living to witness His Infinite Glory and experience His Everlasting Love.

What happens when a child grows up to be an adult? There becomes a subtle nature and condition of, or to, superiority. A father figure and son figure are subconsciously aware of the alpha adult, but by nature the son has discovered his adulthood and puffs up with pride. Tangent — throw two sons the same age (good and evil) into the mix; one son submits to the aged father while the other decides to challenge the right to alpha. Although these two sons are the same age…the one that challenges the right to alpha is the older and evil because of the pride in thinking he had to earn or give up that right to become something he already was (or already had equal rights to with the father because the son is an adult).

If we are a son or daughter of God choosing not to believe the relationship we have to our Father….then we must be ready for marriage. Because we think ourselves adults capable of handling the worlds chaotic condition without help from our parents; societal orchestrating, national reasoning, vegetation and atmospheric conditioning….not to mention the rest of cosmos-ing. There is a reason for the name of Jesus as we know Him and it is not just because He died for the sins of Mankind; it is because He is the Husband of our faith—God in the form of Man (Son Jesus) resurrected Mankind to His Father giving us equality with Him as children of His reign. Through the name of Jesus we are bonding with our Creator to know Him as Father. Seeking to make sense of it all as children would ask of their parents; was I really created for “a higher purpose” (relationship) or does that mean “I’m submitting to a form of control and manipulation” once married?

The risk to continue in unbelief has eternal consequences. Compare it to a tattoo….what is chosen will leave an articulate scar on our body until we are dead and decayed. That is why the scars in Jesus were still there after His resurrection — those scars are me and you because God had chosen to love us before the foundation of the world and to the point of sending His Only Son in our place on that cross, to prove it. And so that leaves us with a choice….because these very moments will determine the fate of our individual eternity’s. Are you seeking after God for your answers? You are not alone.

UnBelievers Nature

Engineers:

Look how distinct nature is. Not everything is black and white as the law would depict, but look how the contrasts compliment each other. Is it not, too precious, to try and describe with words? So I encourage instead, to describe it by experience. Take time in silence and just … “feel” … the energy of nature.

Black Neck Stilt

21 Enoch lived sixty-five years, and became the father of Methuselah.22 Then Enoch walked with God three hundred years after he became the father of Methuselah, and he had other sons and daughters.23 So all the days of Enoch were three hundred and sixty-five years.24 Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him. Genesis 5:21-24

After syncing with nature. Think on this question based on the biblical verses above. Did God take Enoch from his wife … leaving her to tend to all their children, alone? 


Unbelievers,

Since the previous blog, have we discovered truth that satisfies the soul? There is a reason and purpose to the nature of which we live. And as we stop in nature’s course, look to its ground in humility. Do you see our reflection? In it we will discover the majesty of God’s design. If you haven’t found a Bible or someone with a Bible. I encourage you to find one and look into the Word of God with us. Because we are going into the mystery of God together, and His Word does not return void. Watch.

The reason for the word “reflection” was not meant in the perception of looking at yourself through a mirror or “off” water. When we look at the dust of the ground and handle it between our fingers, we are experiencing our reflection. Because we were made from the dust and to dust we will return. We reflect death because of our unbelief and we experience danger; seeming threatened, because of our lack of faith. In the beginning God reassures us of the redemption from this mistake of disobedience and unbelief.

As we continue to look at our reflection. We remember when the enemy questioned us and the reason we became deceived? Remember when (we) Eve said, “From the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat;but from the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat from it or touch it, or you will die.’”? Emphasize ontouch it“. Where did that addition come from? How is Eve an adequate helper to her husband if not permitted to touch the tree? This is all theoretical of course, but being a husband myself would understand the innate nature of Adam to condition the warning from God to protect his wife, “don’t even touch it”. However, I think that also left his wife vulnerable to believe that which was not of God or her husband. Remember, we have a God Who knows what He is doing. What did God tell man? God knew the time was coming for the fruit to be eaten because he orchestrated it knowing what that would mean!…Separation. Does that mean God orchestrated us to sin? No. The orchestration is God having seen all that He created as good, including the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Sin was made available, but not orchestrated for us to commit the act thereof. And; because God understood what we didn’t about sin, knew that we would experience it upon committing the act of believing the serpent of evil. However, thankfully we have an Awesome Husband (that sounds weird being a man, haha, but it makes sense) that is teaching us the way of truth! God knew and knows how to redeem us from that instance of an inevitable decision even to the present moment of sins course.

Man was called Adam, before God saw that it was not good for him to be alone and purposed to create his suitable helper. A male is incomplete without a female in the nature of creation. So then after God presented the female to the male; Man called her, Woman. And it wasn’t until after their mutual agreement of disobedience to consequences, that Adam called his wife’s name, Eve (mother of all living). Now although children were in the foresight of God to complete the Holy Family, that child was not yet born. But we are still talking creation here. Peering into the womb so-to-speak, of creation. Because man will “leave” his father and mother and cleave unto his wife. This is why there are two deaths, but that is for another time.

This creation process appears to relate as the beginning stages of spiritual maturity or material “puberty”? When the serpent presented Eve with a question; her belief was frail, fragile, and needed a man aka husband to step along side her, affirming her status and equality with him as having the power to shut that serpents mouth. She had the authority to tell that serpent to, “go to Hell!”. However, bear in mind the design of our Father. How can we understand the authority unless exercised? And how can we “discern” good from evil unless acquiring the “knowledge” of it. Remember, we are still His Bride! And no serpent is getting in the way of that! God is revealing His Nature; Who He is, to and for us! Preparing our wedding day! And the way He has done that…..is through His Only Son. This resembles the trinity; Father, Mother, Child! = Jesus! The Holy Spirit is preparing to present [us] the Holy Bride to our Holy Groom of faith! And this is an experience of eternal bliss or rather the anticipation for it! No different than a bride anticipating her wedding day! This is what we experience in respect to salvation.

…”Feel it?”…

One of Ben’s favorite quotes from his favorite photographer is “Sometimes I show up just when God is ready for someone to press the shutter” -Ansel Adams

There is so much biblical narration in that photo above it seems unreal. Wouldn’t do it justice not having it as the featured photo. Ooh.., but, to be! In the “lens”! Of a Photographer (we are (: )! Do we truly grasp the amount of hard work required to experience a photo like that? A lot. Now imagine the hard work of our “Master Designer” to set that moment up for Ben to take the shot, so we can experience that moment with him. Although, don’t know whether that compares, exactly, to a woman giving birth. But, lets go with it. It takes 9 months, for (what seems like a lifetime) of seriously painful moments to give birth to a masterpiece! From moments to years after, marveling, at the innocence of life. Then BOOM! The “Big Bang” reality check! In the midst of all that experience — there was a single moment where the umbilical cord was cut. And salvation is born! An unbelievers Genesis.


Engineers,

Lets begin. If this text is being read and understood by an unbeliever. The hope is to inspire the reason to believe. And then experience the revelation of a lifetime together! It’s time to cut the “unbiblical” cord.

Unbelievers,

There is no denying that the reader and writer have been conceived and born from the womb of a mother. And if that is something, even now, that you are trying to control whether or not to believe? Then your “author of this blog” is requesting a sit down “chess-game” conversation; only, permit me the first move. And my first move is So also it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living soul.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.“.

Before “creation” was born, imagine the “wisdom“ of God. The Spiritual Being of God as a Person without gender — “decided” to relate in nature according to design: male and female, light and darkness, good and evil, life and death. Our God, the Awesome Creator, is the very essence of life. And desired an innocent intimate “relationship” with creation hence “virgin” “woman” to “wife” and “glorified bride”. Imagine logic in the midst of desire; what that must mean, to “feel”, or have “emotion”, but without someone to experience that with. There is a risk of wrong doing, but God “counted” the “cost“. The cost must have meant there are “consequences”, but what was the price? To establish order out of chaos there must be consequences. And the price, well, the price is payed. Creation must be “given access” to choose whether to obey. Not manipulated or controlled to choose and obey. God’s Character is established, and has chosen for Himself the creation of which we exist. And therefore is dominant to that which already existed from Him {before the ladies hurl their “thought stones” – please keep reading – because male and female complete each other without status or question of equality}. Creation appears to be as the “helper” to our “Father“. However, it’s much more in-depth than that! It is the actuality of marriage! Also, that was not meant to be received as God needing help, but rather, “incomplete” without help.

Are you seeing where the “umbilical cord” of creation exists? The only unbiblical “cord” in all of Scripture came out of the mouth of the “serpent“. We were tested with a question and failed, miserably and literally! The imagery is this: the mother of all living is Eve, the likeness and image of Adam is God and the serpent is the umbilical cord of creation. Adam was the original “soul” mate of Eve, but where was his Spirit? Do you not hear the sound of God?

So then…what next? We encounter an “option”. Being like God and of His image leaves us at risk for “uncertainty“. How? There is consequence for — evil. What then is necessary for creation not to suffer the consequence of evil? Don’t make the same mistake twice! Creation was given what the Creator already had; life and the knowledge of it! For what reason? Because of Love. God is Love!!! And He designed it as you and I are experiencing it now! This life is but “milk” to learn and grow from. The solid food and eternal life is a relationship with the Word of God! It is finished! Completed in the Name of Jesus!

Disclaimer — I have a reputation of losing chess games. However, my aim is not ever to destroy my opponents kingdom. I always win because of the relationship built in the time we played. I love you so very much!
