So God created man in his own image, in the image of God, created he him; male and female created, He them. Genesis 1:27 KJV
The Lord’s next act was to create a heavenly body to house our eternal spirit created in His image not as gods, but as an eternal being (Spirit). And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul. Now having an immortal housing for our eternal spirit he placed us in a heavenly sanctuary to tend over his creations.
And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there he put the man (Adam) whom he had formed. Genesis 2:8 KJV
God realized there was no help meet for Adam, And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. Genesis 2:22 KJV
OPENING STATEMENT by Robert
The intriguing point here is at that point in time man had two forms of immortality the spirit in God’s image and an immortal body to house it, giving, man, a heavenly form. What becomes important here is that the immortal body connected us to God eternally, there was no death in it.
So when I look at my body it is ageing and slowly dying, and we all know the story of Adam and Eve being removed from the heavenly sanctuary known as the Garden of Eden, which God called Heaven.
However, there were other significant events that occurred at this time. In God declaring And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever:  Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. Genesis 3:22-23 KJV.
God bid man go out; told him he should no longer occupy and enjoy that garden: but man liked the place, and was unwilling to leave it, therefore God made him go out. This signified the shutting out of him, and all his guilty race, from that communion with God, which was the bliss and glory of paradise.
But man (Adam) was only sent to till the ground out of which he was taken. He was sent to a place of toil, not to a place of torment. Our first parents were shut out from the privileges of their state of innocency, yet they were not left to despair. The way to the tree of life was shut.
God revealed this to Adam, not to drive him to despair, but to quicken him to look for life and happiness in the promised Seed, by whom a new and living way into the holiest is laid open for us.
CLOSING PRAYER by Robert
O’Lord, if it is your will hear this petition to bring forward to your modern-day disciples understanding, to the plight those in the darkness are bound by. Bring unto them a sharpened two-edged sword so they might cut the bindings from the minds and hearts of Satans captives. Fill us with your wisdom that we might find an approach to gentle their spirit so we might share and, demonstrate, your Love. Strengthen, the testimony of our previous walk so it may speak they are not alone in their journey. In all things Father, we ask for a heart filled with compassion and sincere love to be shared as your light shining through us. Thank you, Lord, for hearing our plea to be in our lives as we journey through the den of wolves. This we pray in the name of Yeshua Amen and Amen.
CLOSING STATEMENT by Robert
So again the question is why are so many people so set against believing in God and His Son Yeshua? In the previous statement, God’s grace was visible. He told Adam, you have lost a life which had no end, are disconnected from me but there is a way back through a promised seed.
“Ok,” I desire to fast forward and declare that promise made to Adam still applies to each and everyone who comes into this world today, there is an avenue for us to return and receive new bodies which never die, to house the eternal spirit we were created to be. It is our responsibility to identify the promised seed and become a part of that reconnection to God.
In all ages there have been two sorts of worshippers; namely, proud, hardened despisers of the gospel method of salvation, who attempt to please God in ways of their own devising; and humble believers, who draw near to him in the way God has revealed.
Those operating in Malice which we know are steeped in anger, indulge malignant anger against many in their lives. They harbour an evil spirit of discontent and rebellion against God. What these individuals fail to understand God notices all our sinful passions and discontents. There is not an angry, envious, or fretful look, that escapes his observing eye. Malice, which may be taken more generally for all sorts of wickedness, as James 1:21; 1 Corinthians 5:8. But, in a more confined sense, malice is anger resting in the bosom of fools, settled overgrown anger, retained till it inflames a man to design mischief, to do mischief or delight in any mischief that befalls another.
Reasoning brings forward an understanding if you live a life filled with Malice, you would have a difficult time finding the promised seed. You would have a difficult time accepting an outstretched hand.
This next issue Guile it’s easy to see how it would capture and hold a soul, Guile or deceit in words. So it comprehends flattery, falsehood, and delusion, which is a crafty imposing upon another’s ignorance or weakness, to his damage. It represents power over those you might hate or desire to dominate personally or in business.
My desire is to show on both sides believer and non-believer, how, by having just these two maladies in your life they will definitely harden your heart and make it next to impossible to seek the promised seed or even learn about him.
I don’t like preachy people either, and someone replied to me, but you are a sort of preachy person. You never stop talking about God and His Son. You always relate to a gentler solution or try to show a form of caring. That is because there are many different ways of showing the Love I have received along with a desire to share it so others can experience it.
I wrote an article in it I stated everyone spiritually has knowledge of the promised seed whether they want to acknowledge that or not, the info is there and that knowledge needs to awaken either by Yeshua’s light shining through while I am present or by the demonstration of how His love has transformed my life and that it’s available to all who will listen or watch out of courtesy or respect.
I believe the bottom line here many have forgotten or decline to accept, the fact we are a spirit created in the image of God like it or not. That spirit is going to continue on into eternity. Like Adam, we will be separated from our bodies and as that image, God shared his image with us, is freed from that body it will enter eternity, and we all know eternity has no end, consider that.
Finally, I know this malady is a part of everyone’s life, whether we act on it or not is our choice. Hypocrisies. The word being plural comprehends all sorts of hypocrisies. In matters of religion, hypocrisy is counterfeit piety. In civil conversation, hypocrisy is counterfeit friendship, which is much practised by those who give high compliments, which they do not believe, make promises which they never intend to perform or pretend friendship when mischief lies in their hearts.
Please remember these articles are the work of a humble servant of Yeshua doing HIs bidding as a Watchmen sounding the Trumpet to warn of impending danger or shortfalls within the Assembly. May our Father abundantly bless each one of you with wisdom and discernment to go forward as “Modern Day Disciples.”
Thou will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee, Trust ye in the Lord forever: for in the Lord Yeshua is everlasting strength. (Isaiah 26:3-4)
