In the creation of earth, God made a great decision that his name must be known among the nation. He made a decision to create man in his own image and man was created in the likeness of the creator of the universe. He made everything perfect to his own satisfaction that is what brought our living into existence, because of Godís decision, we were created. Only Adam and Eve made the decision that would join the heirs forever to the living God. The tree of life stood in centre of the garden, but there was the enemy, too. The father could not deny his children the right to hear him and choose his way if they wanted, so the tree of knowing good and evil was there with a warning do not touch it, the day you do, you will surely die.
That was the word from the God who created them. Now there was the matter of decision making: either to touch or not to touch the tree, but letís see what happened to them. Satan thought he could take the kingdom of God by deceiving Eve making her rebel against the commandment of God.
Yet the situation was not beyond hope. Eve had been deceived and had disobeyed, but the image was composite to Adamís decision that was to destroy it or redeem it. When he looked at Eve, how did he feel? Did he feel the empty void, the distance between them bitterer than before, the pain of loneliness? Did he hope by joining in her decision making to disobey God and take the fruit to experience the personal knowing of good and evil? Huh! Now the light died down and the music stopped, and the spirit of God was ripped away and death came.
Imagine what would have happened and how the world would be if their decision was to choose the tree of life. Their decision made our world be the way it is now, which allowed Satan to have his kingdom on the earth and torment people created by God. All of this because of the choice and the decision of Adam and Eve. The kingdom of God now is violent.
