A Walk In The Garden
Thoughts about the greatest book ever written
One day the Son was walking in the garden that He and His Father created . The Son said to His Father, “ I know what man will be like and that there will be so much trouble when he comes, but I would like him to be a part of our life.” The Father replied, “Yes, this would be good, because in the end when all things are put back into order, it will have all been worth it. There are many trials man will need to go through before he will learn what is necessary for him to no longer be a man but a spiritual being and for ‘Our Perfect Order’ to eternally be.”
“Because man will be so much trouble, we must limit his time . Also it would not be good to have a man without ‘free will’ because then he would be like the angels. Having ‘free will’, is when we allow trouble into our existence but it also will be worth it. The angels are good but without ‘free will’ they are like robots. Let us prepare ourselves for trouble. With ‘free will’ the angels will divide themselves and remain good or turn evil . We will lose one of our favored angels but his sacrifice is necessary and it will be by his own choice . Unlike the angels who will either be good or be evil, man will be both and therefore he will be able to judge which is good or evil . Once he has judged the angels and has exposed every evil, we will destroy all evil. With man we will have someone who will truly appreciate Us, because he will have known both good and evil together.
Man’s sin was not to take on good or evil, but his sin was to disobey God
By choosing to obey satan’s way rather than God’s way, Eve sinned
By choosing to obey Eve over God, Adam sinned
Eve’s thoughts “I know God and the love and goodness that He is , but here is something new and I am very curious what it would be like. This is a mystery and it intrigues me. I think I will take a chance and trust this creature. (Eve was deceived)
Adam’s thoughts “God created this beautiful creature for me and I do not want to be without her. Now that she has sinned, God will think that woman is not good for me and I will have to be without her. Since she is a part of me, I don’t think I could live without her. If I sin, God will destroy me with her. (Adam’s sin was thought out)
This then reveals the nature of the male and the female
The male is faithful and loving
The female is trusting and curious
Faithfulness, love, trust, and curiosity are traits that all men and women have and they are good as long as the faithfulness, the love, the trust and the curiosity remain with God
Jesus was always faithful to and trusted His Father
And then He remained obedient to death
So that He could give us back the life that Adam and Eve gave up
41And He was withdrawn from them about a stone's throw, and He knelt down and prayed, 42saying, "Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done." 43Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him. 44And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
Death in Adam, Life in Christ
12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned-- 13(For until the law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law. 14Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who had not sinned according to the likeness of the transgression of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come. 15But the free gift is not like the offense. For if by the one man's offense many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to many. 16And the gift is not like that which came through the one who sinned. For the judgment which came from one offense resulted in condemnation, but the free gift which came from many offenses resulted in justification. 17For if by the one man's offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.)
18Therefore, as through one man's offense judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one Man's righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life. 19For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man's obedience many will be made righteous.
20Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more, 21so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
1 Corinthians 15
42So also is the resurrection of the dead. The body is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruption. 43It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness, it is raised in power. 44It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. 45And so it is written, "The first man Adam became a living being." The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.
46However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual. 47The first man was of the earth, made of dust; the second Man is the Lord from heaven. 48As was the man of dust, so also are those who are made of dust; and as is the heavenly Man, so also are those who are heavenly. 49And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man.
