It was so from the start. God the Creator of all things and the fully in charge one; the sovereign over all of His own creation God does not have a dementia, does He? Before Alzheimer ever was He is.
The no-nonsense God is mine and I’d like to introduce Him to you as such.
Where do we begin?
Of course, He wanted us to eat of the Tree of Knowledge because choices are only possible in the presence of contrasts.
“When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate.”
Logically speaking she did not see it before. Why? The tree was not yet desirable until Nechash (a beast of the field, Hebrew word: HAYAH, a created by God animal) spoke with a legible voice, just as Balaam’s ass did in Numbers 22.
The same God who had anointed Nebuchadnezzar (the king of Babylon) for no other purpose but to exile Judah to Babylon had also removed his human mind and gave him a mind of an ox. Then again God gave back the king his mind thus showing him who really was, is and always will be the boss – the Sovereign over all of His creation God.
After the Tree of Knowledge (a tree of contrasts) became desirable Eve ate of it and then her eyes were opened. She felt lonely. She saw that something had happened and her longing for her man started then. Quickly she gave the fruit to Adam. Then, both had realized that they were naked; and for the very first time they felt shame. This new feeling, as strange it was, was what God was after for after all, God said (Genesis 1:26) that they should replenish the earth and to fill the earth with their kind. How could they do that when they had no desire of any kind either for or against?
A choice was possible thanks to the creation of contrasts and exactly this choice, to put it simply God was after.
First were have learned the consequence of something negative. Today, right now, we must learn something good and then the ensuing consequences. Like a bad food that gives you indigestion or can cause food poisoning so can also the consequence of choosing something bad.
Knowledge is only knowledge, quite neutral, but it is the choice—of one or the other—that can be detrimental or be a blessing. If we choose war then peace will be far from us; and the result can be deadly. If we choose peace, then war will be far away from us; the result can be healing, restoration and peace of mind. Choose!
The newly created desire, which first was created in Eve for the tree, was now in both of them. As a continuation of God’s creation, and education, a sexual desire was also created so that they would learn to choose wisely and pass then those new genes to their children. However, the problem was not the eating of the “forbidden” fruit.
They hid themselves, but God who instigated it all knew very well what had happened.
Afterwards God taught them the consequences of the first transgression. What it means and how to handle.
Adam and Eve did not sin, neither fell, they only unwittingly, and ignorantly so, transgressed and had to be taught the difference. With the gift of choice repentance was also provided, but in order to repent they had to learn good and bad and then choose wisely.
In Genesis 4:7 God reasons with Cain teaching him the consequences of a bad behavior and a good behavior; one makes his face to be cast down and the other to be lifted. God’s face is synonymous with His presence, with grace and happiness; for so we read in Numbers 6:24-26. The Lord lifts up His face and His countenance (Paniv, Paneah & Panim, all speak of cheeks, face and presence). However, Cain chose wrong and killed his brother Abel; and then departed from God’s presence, turned his back to God (His presence was in the Eden region, but not everywhere) and went to the land of Not where he found a wife. That woman was not from Adam because the same God who forbids incest (Lev. 20:10-16) changes not.
From the connection between Cain and other peoples came the giants. Also from the connection between Seth and other peoples came the giants, evil and good. The good ones build Salomon’s temple. They knew secrets of levitation and gravity-reversal and were able to perfectly fit together enormously large stone blocks.
God reasons with His children. (In Luke 3:26-38 we see that Adam was called God’s son and logically his sons were called the sons of God. The first Adam was fleshly and the second Adam was spiritual.)
God wants to be chosen. He is love and seeks to share that love with us. The fifth Book of Moses (Deuteronomy 30:19-20) ends with these words: “I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants, by loving the LORD your God…”
It is all so simple and yet so complicated for religious imbeciles who are stuck in just the self.
