We got Forbidden Fruit!

After creating heaven and earth, God then created Adam and Eve; and the first thing He said to them was: "Don't."

"Don't what?" asked Adam.

"Don't eat the forbidden fruit," said God.

"Forbidden fruit? We got forbidden fruit? Hey, Eve ... We got Forbidden Fruit!"

"No way!"

"Yes WAY!"

"Don't eat that fruit!" said God.

"Why?"

"Because I am your Creator and I said so!" said God, wondering why he had not stopped after making the elephants.

A few minutes later God saw the kids having an apple break and was angry. "Did I not tell you not to eat that fruit?" God asked.

"Uh huh," replied Adam.

"Then why did you?"

"I dunno," Eve answered.

"She started it!" Adam said.

"Did not!"

"DID so!"

"DID NOT!!"

Having had it with the two of them, God's punishment was that Adam and Eve should have children of their own.

THIS IS MINE HOUR
I dedicate these words to my loving Wife, and family: I pray, to the Father for all of those who read these words, and that they understand the purpose for their lives, As they find themselves, and their true identity in Christ through these words, I thank the Father for all those whom, never gave up on their friendship, and brotherhood with me, Amen…

In this last hour, there is a grievous crisis within the body of Christ. A great dependence on the traditions and denominations of men has befallen it. The teachings of men have brought confusion to the body of Christ. God’s people have been lulled into believing that the greater the emotional draw, and ‘entertainment flare’ equals a closer the walk with God. Believing that the greater the number of members is proof of the greater the walk with God. Steering the church into an emotional dependency in man, and not a spiritual dependency in God. Making the church powerless, and unable to find her place of authority in the Kingdom of God.

The church holds these teachings as Gospel, and therefore not searching out the Word to find the truth, personally. The church has become dull of hearing. Not knowing, the voice of the Holy Spirit in their personal lives. The denominationalism of the church has kept Man in his spiritual infancy. This has cause Man to take on a religious nature. The carnal mind, and the souls of men have been given power over the people. Through conflict and strife the church, has built impassable walls. Even to the point of hatred, and envy between denominations. Because of this God has hidden this word, for The Sons to discover. For this purpose, I began to hear the voice of God, but at the time I did not, fully understand what God was showing me. I have throughout my walk been given insight into God’s Word through spiritual discernment, and the power of His spoken word, and symbolism.

Through the mind of Christ, working in me. “I pray that Lord of Hosts lead you as you read these words”. ‘Let this mind be in you’ which is in Christ Jesus. I have been given, to see man’s manipulation through the translations of the Word. And, that it is imperative to those who are ‘the called’ according to His purpose; ‘the Sons of God’… know the truth of the Word in this hour. This is the beginning of the revelation into the “mysteries” of the Word… I would let it be known that I do not hold any of these truths of myself, nor do I exalt myself of anything. But I digress, All Praise and the Glory be unto Him, who sits on the throne. ‘The King of Kings, and Lord of Lords’, Amen… Let us begin, by setting some foundational truths, and understandings in Genesis. First, God has created Man, a spiritual creature, first, and then a physical form, second. The physical formation of man comes through the working of the fall, later, much later in his walk with God.

As a result of Mans encounter with the mixture of “good and evil”, Man began to indulge himself in rational thought, through the carnal mind. And this being new to Man, and being unprepared, because of doubt, he began to look at God’s creation through the eyes of limitations, and want. He began to see through the mind of fear, and doubt. In this new realm the Man hide himself. *Gen 3:9 And Jehovah God calleth unto the man, and saith to him, `Where art thou?' *Gen 3:10 and he saith, `Thy sound I have heard in the garden, and I am afraid, for I am naked, and I hide myself.' *Gen 3:11 And He saith, `Who hath declared to thee that thou art naked? Of the tree of which I have commanded thee not to eat, hast thou eaten?' We have for thousands of years hide among the “trees of men”. Here our Father asks, Adom ‘who has told you were naked?’ And the answer is, his carnal mind, twisted through satan ‘the traducer’. Through the weighing of good and evil through ‘reason’ Man began to believe a lie, through the twisting of the truth.

*Gen 3:5 for God doth know that in the day of your eating of it--your eyes have been opened, and ye have been as God, knowing good and evil.' Man had began to except his carnal, and physical world as reality, and not just a part of the sleep under which God had placed him, to form him, and to perfect his soul-‘Eve’. God seeing the Man had partaken of ‘the knowledge’ of good and evil, God formed Man with all of the necessary senses, to walk out this process, of knowing good and evil in this physical world. God clothed the man with skins (not the skins of beasts), but the enclosure in which we now walk. This is the formation of Man into a physical body. This is “The Fall of Man”. This ‘makes man’ flesh, as a result of the fall into the mixture. Man is now a Hued-Man, or as we know it ‘Human’.

This is literally a mixed-up Man, because Man cannot see the plan of God from within the fall. These are two distinctly different events in Man’s walk with his Creator. First, that which is spiritual, timeless, and boundless, and then that which is natural, flesh, limited, measured, and counted. Man is an eternal being, as is his Father, God. This is the process, which God has chosen to complete Man, to know the fullness of good and evil, which brings man to the understanding of the great gift, which God has given unto man through the working of the cross. This must be the beginning, of understanding, and that Man is on the path of perfection, even today. Walking through good and evil within the garden of man’s spirit. Man is beginning to see the fullness of his relationship with his Father.

Through, man’s struggle to return to the Father, without spot or blemish. Perfected! Knowing this is the very fabric of God’s Word, and Man’s true understanding of it. For it is the pleasure of the King to hide a mystery, and the honor of the ‘sons’ to revel unto the World. In Genesis Chapter 1:1. From the very beginning God has set Man’s place within His Creation, to set first Heaven ‘Man’s –spirit’, and then his Earth-‘soul’. Man is the instrument in His hand, in every part of God’s creation, from the very beginning. Man lived within the Father in Eternity in a timeless state of perfection, for countless eons before the fall. This is why *Gen 1:26 And God saith, `Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness, and let them rule over fish of the sea, and over fowl of the heavens, and over cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that is creeping on the earth.'

*Gen 1:27 And God prepareth the man in His image; in the image of God He prepared him, a male and a female He prepared them. God prepared Man ‘male and female’ in one being in Himself. Let Us – translated Elohym, which is ‘Gods’ plural- ‘the Father and His sons’ “Alpha and Omega” “ The First Adom, and the Last Adom” are making- ‘forming’ a body in which to express Himself in His own image. As the woman creates a child inside her womb, God creates through man’s womb ‘Eve- the soul, the church’. *Gen 1:28 And God blesseth them, and God saith to them, `Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and rule over fish of the sea, and over fowl of the heavens, and over every living thing that is creeping upon the earth.’ Truly this World is at the pinnacle of evil in this last day.

We are so ready to blame satan ‘the traducer’ - for all mans ills. Jesus, from the foundation of the world ‘is’ slain, and that gift has set man again, as rightful owner of this world, not satan. Making a shame of him openly, by the cross. To further compress this point,’ God’s asks JOB ‘where were you when, “I”! ‘The masculine identity of God’, which also is the spirit of- man, when the stars of heaven sang together’? The answer to this is certainty that JOB was in God when the stars sang together. Let us now understand that this is, in “the beginning” of the creation, and that it is present tense and continuing, and not passed tense. God’s works are not governed by time, nor should we be. Also, God is the being of eternity, as are we. God has “set” (as a jeweler sets a stone in it’s crown)“Man” as the rightful heir of all things.

Let us now look again to this ‘first Adam’. “Adam” therefore this is not the first Adam’s name, but it is translated Adom “red, as in the first blood of God”. The Father, named him the man… “The Light Bearer”, *1966 in the Strongs Concordance which is translated “The Morning Star”, and that he is “ The Covering Cherub” which covers the World. He is charged to protect, groom, and to keep it, and to have dominion over it. The first Adom, ‘remember that which is first is last and that which is last is first’. The twain made “ONE” so making peace. The Alpha and Omega is the instrument through which God manifested Light to all His creation. Let us take in depth look at the man that God is making. First and foremost he is a creature of Light, possessing all understanding of good, in righteousness. Full of knowledge, and wisdom.

Remember that man named all life on the planet without flaw or blemish “perfect in beauty”. Knowing all, seeing all, possessing all ability, and that he is perfect in beauty, He is surly a true reflection of his Father, in every since of good. But now in* Gen 2:17 “and of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, thou dost not eat of it”, for in the day of thine eating of it—(in) dying thou dost die, note this is present tense and continuing. And now we see a great gulf formed between the man and his Creator, a lack of balance within the soul of man. Having no experience, of the order of creation. Man could not know the great gift, which God had given him. The gift of ‘Eternal Life’, life without pain, suffering, or any such corruption or death. Man has no understanding by comparison, of good without evil.

This creature is only half-perfected, only half-complete. Void of any understanding of evil, which is the balance within the content of creation. Thus, the man took into himself a mixture; of the “knowledge of” good and evil, and to that end came ‘The Fall” through the will of the Father. * Rom 8:20 ‘for to vanity was the creation made subject--not of its will, but because of Him who did subject it --in hope’, Now, this is the stage of Gods completion of man in the fullness of his glory in this last day. Through the fall came the introduction of evil into the “soul-Eve of man”, by the work of the traducer. Let it be know that we, ‘the sons of God’ are still within the Garden of Eden, but fallen, or as it is know the Hued.

This opened man to the carnal realm of thought, and reason to walk in. The soul of man began to consider what had been spoken to him by the serpent, Gen 3:5 for God doth know that in the day of your eating of it--your eyes have been opened, and ye have been as God, knowing good and evil.' ‘ Ye have been as God’ which is the truth. They truly are in many ways like God. Eternal, powerful, full of knowledge, and ability. We see man has been subjected to vanity, to complete him, to make him in God’s image, knowing both good and evil. God would not have asked Adom to subdue and have dominion over the whole world if Adom did not have the ability to do it. In this last day, we see many things hindering Man in his walk with God.

In Rev 12:3 ‘And there was seen another sign in the heaven’, and, lo, a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his head seven diadems, Rev 12:4 and his tail doth draw the third of the stars of the heaven, and he did cast them to the earth; and the dragon did stand before the woman who is about to bring forth, that when she may bring forth, her child he may devour; The third of the stars which the dragon cast down, are those who followed the first Adom in the partaking of the fruit of ‘the tree of good and evil’. Let it be proclaimed there are those who did not to follow ‘the first Adom’. These are ‘the called’, ‘the Sons of God’. They did not hide from God as first Adom did, but did ask forgiveness for their sin, and where redeemed from ‘the fall’.

Not being cast out of heaven as ‘the first Adom’ is. Man by design is the ruler of this world, given to him by his Father. Once forfeited, to satan by the ‘first Adom’. This is why God had to become a Man to redeem the earth back to Man, by the ‘Last Adom’. He now, has redeemed all back to Man, by Jesus Christ. This was fulfilled when Jesus when in to hell, and took the keys of death, hell, and the grave, from satan. Thus, the Vail of the Temple is rent in twain, from top to bottom which only God could do, to allow the first Adom back into heaven. This speaks of the offspring of ‘the Last Adom’ The Man-child of Revelation 12:13 through this revelation we now see that God has given man a hand in all of his creation, to bring it into perfection.

This sets man in the place of authority a rule, and that Man bears responsibility for the present condition of this world. To know this is to know who, and what we are in Him, through growth and enlightenment in the presence, and guidance of the Holy Spirit. This in knowing the order of creation from glory to glory, and that through the knowing the fullness of Him, within us. We will begin, within the soul of the rejuvenated, by placing the heart in the realm of His presence, which is where He is given place to reign. And, being able to listen to His voice, the still small voice within. To be set in this place means to be shaken to your very core, spirit, soul, and body. Through the observing of the cycle of this placing in our natural lives “by living through lying vanities”, and what are the things which Man observes?

They are those things, which pull us away from our center, “our origin”, our beginning. That we have in us, as stated in the Word, Man was, and has always have been with God in every aspect of the creation, from beginning to end of this natural realm and beyond. We through these underlying truths, have always known this in our spirit, that it is He in us, and we in Him, for without Him was “nothing” made that was, and is made. We are irremovable from Him, as He is from us. It is the purpose of this natural realm to bring Mankind to the knowledge of that entire God, the Father, which has given unto them who are the called unto His purpose. It is the heart of the Father to bring His sons to an awareness of what goes on around them, and why. And how it is the Spirit within which guides them into all realms of Life, beyond this natural plane.

Now, preceding through this seeming unregenerate state that Man is now succumbed too the knowledge of failure, and lack, which he had never known or experienced before. For now with every thought, he will now discover doubt within himself, in every task, and in every thought, which he encounters. With the constant nagging of his carnivorous mind, in wanting, and demanding more, and more from his newly unfolding lusts! To the point of utter rage, and arrogance. He is becoming aware of his natural abilities through which he can now walk out of the spiritual realm, from which He was created, and away from his imaged control of God. Man himself has been made aware of the carnivorous mind, and that it now can be controlled by the knowledge of evil, which is presented through him, by satan.

Which is the every thing that the serpent uses to speak to Man, through his soul (Eve) feeding his carnivorous desires with all the base things of this natural realm, which He had never before encountered. Man now has through his own mind become a “god” having a traduced sense of right and good, and wrong, and evil. The serpent has twisted; every thought through this newly formed process of (self) reasoning. Thou hast said in thine heart “I will” (the act of self awareness), the effect of which is now seemingly to be apart from God’s presence. Before, Man did as God instructed him without question, until God placed Man in the final stage of maturity through the encrypting of the knowledge of evil into Man’s consciousness ‘desires’. Although there were no outward manifestations of what Man had encountered through this hewing knowledge of evil.

This change is reveled though what God had asked the Man in the Garden “Where are you Adom?” God reveled to Man through Man’s own words, that something had changed within the Man, to now believe that he was naked. God asked,” who told you, you were naked”? God had not lost Man, nor had Man’s outward appearance changed. But now because of Man’s hued state it was now impossible for Man to remain in the glory of the Garden of God “The Holiest of all”. Therefore the Man must by reason of his now hued, limited, and tainted state, be removed from the purity of the Garden. Now, Man is to miss “the mark”, in all that he does, he will now suffer loss, and lack, in every thing which dwells here in this natural plane. To know nothing save Him crucified.

So that through all this Man will know that “all is vanity, and vexation of spirit” (within this hued state) sayeth the Lord. Only through the suffering of evil can Mankind know that “the observing of lying vanities will he forsake his own mercy”. Now, that the Man is under the influence of vanity, “not willingly, but by reason of Him who subjected the same “in hope”. And now subjected, to bring forth the New Man (the inward Man of the heart) within this earthen vessel. These are to manifest, to bring “all of Mankind” into the rest of God the Father. Now that Man is no longer under the slavery of sin (the missing of the mark) of the prize of the high calling, but that we are now in Christ Jesus.

To know this is to know who, and what we are in Him, through growth and enlightenment in the presence, and guidance of the Holy Spirit. This in knowing the order of creation from glory to glory, and that through the knowing the fullness of Him, within us. We will begin, within the soul of the rejuvenated, by placing the heart in the realm of His presence, which is where He is given place to reign. And, being able to listen to His voice, the still small voice within. To be set in this place means to be shaken to your very core, spirit, soul, and body. Through the observing of the cycle of this placing in our natural lives “by living through lying vanities”, and what are the things which Man observes?

They are those things, which pull us away from our center, “our origin”, our beginning. That we have in us, as stated in the Word, Man was, and has always have been with God in every aspect of the creation, from beginning to end of this natural realm and beyond. We through these underlying truths, have always known this in our spirit, that it is He in us, and we in Him, for without Him was “nothing” made that was, and is made. We are irremovable from Him, as He is from us. It is the purpose of this natural realm to bring Mankind to the knowledge of that entire God, the Father, which has given unto them who are the called unto His purpose.

It is the heart of the Father to bring His sons to an awareness of what goes on around them, and why. And how it is the Spirit within which guides them into all realms of Life, beyond this natural plane.http://manifestingsons.blogspot.com/
