I hope to go much deeper into the Adam and Eve creation story than we have ever gone before.
Warning: This is a very in-depth and complicated post that I have been working on putting together for nearly two years now and it is constantly changing. The content in here could be taught nonstop for months if not years as it is deep spiritual material. I am not a trained theologian, but I don’t believe we need to be. We have the very teacher inside us and “all knowledge” according to 1 John 2:20 & 1 John 2:27. If something doesn’t make sense and feel free to skip it for now as the Spirit will teach us what we need to know when we need it. This is not “intro” material by any stretch of the imagination as I have been working on this for more than a year now as God reveals more. His plan is extremely rich and deep and these conclusions are my own and will test the religious mind for sure. If you are new here, I would recommend reading some of the other posts first before this one to get more of a foundation first. My writing can be confusing and complex to follow as I make an attempt to unpack the enormous content of the Spirit.
This is my latest ongoing working theory on Genesis 1 and 2 and the creation of man. I am sure that most people have not have heard these ideas before and I freely admit there are still a lot of loose ends. If none of this lines up with what you believe, please just skip it. However, if you don’t mind some new, fresh and powerful ideas that incorporate more of scripture and are always being updated, please consider it and see what your own heart says to you. Quite frankly, for me if scripture confirms something and it makes God look bigger and more loving, I will accept it and believe it. I can’t always “reconcile it” into what I currently know, but I leave that to God to do. He has not let me down yet and his beauty and amazing love keeps getting bigger and bigger as this occurs.
This is my best current working model that I derived from Matthew 21:33-43, Isaiah 5:1-2, Matthew 16:23, Isaiah 14:12-17, Ezekiel 28:12-18 and any other related scripture. Honestly, the creation of and Gods plan for man can be very difficult to understand in detail because of all the hidden kingdoms, realms, times, and points of view that God speaks of in the Bible. Thus, I am always updating it as God reveals more from his word. I believe these verses and others like it give us solid clues about the truth of Adam’s creation, plunge into darkness, and how “Satan” became ruler of it. We also gain very valuable insight into the most powerful meaning of Revelation as I believe both Revelation and Genesis are spiritual books. These ideas were originally part of this post under the area titled “Old Creation Vs. New (true) Creation” but I felt it was best to separate so it can be expanded continuously. I will often speak as if something is truth, but really we can only know truth from within our own hearts. I do this to avoid constantly saying “I believe” or “I understand scripture to say” etc. This is the way we talk in normal, everyday life and I am very open to God’s “updates”. Thus if anyone shows me scripture that further reveals the truth and changes something I currently know, it will be immediately incorporated into the model.
Have your seatbelt and crash helmet on? If so, let’s “roll”!
Genesis 1 Man is Different Than Genesis 2 Man?
My extensive study and quiet time has let me to be personally convinced that the “man” created in Genesis 1 and the one formed Genesis 2 are two different sides of “mankind” or Adam and not the same “Adam” that we know of. We are taught they are the same “Adam” or man that we are familiar with from the “garden”. However, I am convinced this is not true from the scriptural evidence. All the evidence of many scriptures has us to positively conclude they are two separate sides of “man” or Adam that at the proper time of God’s plan of the Ages would eventually come together as one in Christ. The man “created” in God’s image in Genesis 1:27 is not yet merged with the one “formed” Genesis 2:27. The Genesis 1:27 man who was created, is a powerful spiritual man with tow sides to “him”. He has both a powerful male spiritual ruling side like Christ himself and a subservient female side who is the being he rules over. If you think about a marriage union of husband and wife with the husband being the “head” and the wife being the more submissive one, you can begin to see this. It’s the very picture of Christ and his bride where Christ is the dominant, ruling spiritual “head” which is the Genesis 1:27 “male” side and his bride or the Church is the submissive “female” spirit who is man’s spirit. This is the end goal of God’s plan I believe and he will fulfill it, once the two beings are fully merged together. However, in the meantime, this spiritual ruling power was given to his servants who we know as “Satan” and he produced “bad grapes”. This turned the “marriage” into a “master-slave” relationship when he himself became wrapped in darkness and took the creation with him under law. This produced sin and death in the entire creation. We will go into this in a bit.
Summary: Genesis 1:27 spiritual man has both a dominant, ruling “male” side and a weaker, submissive “female” side. The male or husband ruled over the weaker “wife” or female side of this spiritual “man”. It is a “master-slave” relationship under law or a husband-wife relationship under grace in Christ.
Which one is “man”?
The male side of Genesis 1:27 man is simply called “man” whereas the weaker “female” side, who is natural man’s spirit, is called the “son of man”. To make things even more complex, this weaker “female” side of Genesis 1 man (called natural man’s spirit) also has a subservient partner or helper we call “Eve” in Genesis 2 who is our human soul. She is often referred to as the “daughter of man or “daughters of men” in the Old Testament because she too is a slave to the powerful Genesis 1:27 male spiritual ruler. As we will discuss shortly, I have also concluded the “female” portion of Genesis 1:27 man is the actual “breath of life” inside Genesis 2:7 man that was “breathed into him and made his “form” come alive. In our natural human experience from our soul, we only see the Genesis 2:7 “physical” man and his “wife” who is our human soul and we don’t see Genesis 1:27 man at all as he is a spirit being.
Summary: The genesis 1:27 man has two sides. One is a “male” who is the spiritual ruler of the entire Kingdom of Earth on both the natural and spiritual sides. He rules over and is “married to” the subservient “female” side of himself. The subservient “female” side of Genesis 1:27 man is natural mankind’s or physical Adam’s spirit that we are familiar with through the Word. This natural spirit of man is the very “breath of life” that made Genesis 2:7 “Adam” come alive. This Adam’s “helper” is Eve who is mankind’s soul. Thus, all three are connected together.
Genesis 2:7 Man is the “Adam” we are Familiar With
As I mentioned above, the Genesis 2:7 man is the “Adam” we know who was formed from the “dust of the ground” and had the “breath of life” breathed into him. I have concluded that this “breath of life” in Adam was actually the subservient “female” spiritual side of Genesis 1:27 man. This is what made Adam the slave of this powerful ruling Genesis 1 man. The “male” side of Genesis 1:27 man is a powerful spiritual man that was created by the one true God who was given strong ruling powers from Heaven as “God” over all of the Earth or “World” including the entire spiritual realm. This would be the position that Satan has now or had until the cross depending on their view of the cross. If we look at 1 John 5:19, John 12:31, John 16:11, John 14:20 and we can see “Satan” has this power as “God of this World”. This power including the ability to manage a toned-down and veiled form of God’s life called “natural life” or “breath of life” on Earth which is the very same life force inside the Genesis 2:7 Adam whom God calls a “son” of man. If we look around in scripture, we can see that God differentiates this “breath of life” from his actual eternal Spirit which alone is eternal life and unveiled from his being. See Isaiah 42:5 It’s also important to know this “breath of life” is the very same life that the animals had as it was only temporary until Christ took back over the creation.
For the fate of the sons of men and the fate of beasts is the same. As one dies so dies the other; indeed, they all have the same breath and there is no advantage for man over beast, for all is vanity Ecclesiastes 3:19
What else do we know about the “breath of life” that was breathed into Adam?
As mentioned, the “breath of life” is the very power of natural life that all natural humans or “sons of men” and animals have. It is a short-lived and veiled life that does not see or know the one true God of Heaven. Think about what is a human’s “breath of life”. Is it not the very “air” we breath? Thus, we can begin to see other powerful connections in the word. Who is the ruler of the “air” or this spiritual realm that natural man depends upon for his very existence? Is it not the “prince of the power of the air“? Could the “air” and the “breath of life” be one and the same? Don’t we need both to live?
in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience Ephesians 2:2
Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl upon the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple from the throne, saying, “It is done.” Revelation 16:17
If you see the connections, God is revealing to you the amazing depth of his story that the natural mind doesn’t see! This is a very exciting time because God’s Word is going to come ALIVE inside you. This is Jesus himself and he is in all things after the cross. Colossians 3:11. “Eve” or man’s natural soul has just not been made fully aware yet. God will see to it that all of her see’s the truth!
The Adam We know and Have Been Taught was Incomplete and Christ Completed Him
The Adam as we know him, did not have full eternal life nor were we ever told he was given God’s actual “Spirit”. His “breath of life” was natural life that is veiled from God but more importantly, it was the actual “female” type of Genesis 1:27 mankind. God’s servant whom I believe was Lucifer but then held the position of Satan once God wrapped him in darkness, ended up with the ruling power of Genesis 1:27 man. Then, he became the “master” of all of “Adam” which included all his descendants as they were part of him. We will discuss that in a little bit, but I hope you see how this is coming together into a beautiful plan of redemption for all of “Adam”.
Let me summarize again.
I hope you can see how the Genesis 1:27 man is a powerful ruling being on his “male” side and he can “form” life that he breathes the “female” or submissive side of himself into. Thus, he is the ruler of that thing he created as his spirit as the male is the “head” and the “female” side could be called the submissive side. This idea comes form God’s powerful way he says that the “husband is the head of the wife and Christ is the head of the husband”. Ephesians 5:23 I can tell you my friend the most beautiful spiritual truth this is saying as it applies to so many areas in the Word. I have already shared this, but think of a human marriage.
The “wife” (Eve) is man’s soul who is submissive to man’s spirit (Adam) who is the husband. Man (Adam) himself in his spirit is the “bride of Christ” and he is submissive to his spiritual head who is Christ or Genesis 1:27 “male” spiritual man before the cross. This being is submissive to God the father himself.
Isn’t this beautiful? If you can understand this, you can understand what is going on with Genesis 1 and 2 mankind and why the “creations” appeared to be split into what Jesus called the “wheat” and the “tares”. The “tares” are nothing more than man’s spiritually dead female spirit that is wrapped in darkness. The soul (Eve) where we exist is all part of the “wheat”! She is the very “woman” in Revelation 12 who is the “mother of all creation”! Christ would eventually be the Genesis 1:27 male leader and ruler when he “returned” to his own creation according to the parable in Luke 19 and Matt 22. Man’s spirit (Adam) would be the Genesis 1:27 “female” side as his “bride”. Man’s spirit is also married to his own soul (Eve) who is his own bride and in God’s plan subservient to both man’s spirit and God himself. All three would become “one spirit” and in perfect eternal union with God to live forever! 1 Corinthians 6:17
God’s Beautiful, Multi-part and Multi-Age Plan
If God grants you the ability to begin to see this and it starts to click, you will see the most beautiful plan of how God created man in multiple parts and how he is submissive to Christ and God. God reveals it to us in the human covenant of marriage.
If you are struggling to see this, don’t worry. These things take time especially with abstract ideas. In my “earthly” work I work with abstract computer and technology all the time and this took me more than a year to see. But, God can give this to anyone in a flash. He made me work for it. I think a drawing to see it visually would be helpful and maybe God will provide someone to do a drawing so we can see it visually. Knowing how Christ is the spiritual head of man and looking at the current model of how man’s natural spirit becomes his “bride” we can conclude some pretty amazing things. As I mentioned, there is very strong evidence that the “breath of life” that was breathed into Genesis 2:7 man was actually the “female” or subservient side of Genesis 1:27 man. I believe it was the male side of Genesis 1:27 man doing it himself because he has a different name in Genesis 2:7 than the one true God of Genesis 1:1.
I am going to repeat many of these this so they can hopefully be grasped and understood.
Again, one of the life forms Genesis 1:27 male “man” “formed” is the Genesis 2:7 man who is a weaker, sub servant type of natural man “formed” from the dust of the “ground”. Again, this is the “Adam” we know and are familiar with in the natural, physical world. This next statement may throw you. Adam’s body AND natural SPIRIT is actually made of “dust” and both are called “flesh”! It is very surprising to find out that “dust” and “ground” are spiritual materials and realms and not the physical things we think they are. In addition to there being “physical” flesh there is also spiritual flesh which is the natural spirit of man. If you think about this as you read the new Testament where it talks of “flesh” we can see God is not always talking about a physical body. He is referring to the natural spirit of man which is the Genesis 1:27 man’s female spirit. This is very eye-opening and amazing to see when God shows us into the deeper truth of the Spirit realm.
So, who is this Genesis 1:27 spiritual ruling “male” man in Genesis and the Old Testament? How did Satan end up as the Ruler of this World?
Ultimately, we know that Christ is the ultimate ruler over ALL power and authority and he currently holds the Earthly ruling title of the “bright morning star”. 2 Peter 1:19, Revelation 22:16 He also told us that “all authority in Heaven and Earth has been given to him”. Matthew 28:18 We also know that he is the head of all rule and power. Colossians 2:10
However, there is much evidence that “one of God’s servants” was put in charge of God’s “vineyard” or creation have he created it.
Here is the story of “God’s vineyard” or creation of mankind on Earth. I interpret as God himself speaking to Jesus his Son of whom is the “true vine” and through whom he created the “vineyard” or creation.
Let me sing now for my well-beloved
A song of my beloved concerning His vineyard.
My well-beloved had a vineyard on a fertile hill.
2 He dug it all around, removed its stones,
And planted it with the choicest vine.
And He built a tower in the middle of it
And also hewed out a wine vat in it;
Then He expected it to produce good grapes,
But it produced only worthless ones. Isaiah 5:1-2
How could it produce “worthless grapes”? What are “worthless grapes”? They are the “natural spiritual man” of whom Lucifer turned Satan plunged into darkness by tricking him into taking the law into his being. Genesis 3:6 God knows that the law always kills man and deceives him as he becomes blinded to the truth and full of self-righteousness trying to earn his own salvation.
How did this happen? How did the “grapes” become bad? Look at Mark 12:1.
And He began to speak to them in parables: “A man planted a vineyard and put a wall around it, and dug a vat under the wine press and built a tower, and rented it out to vine-growers and went on a journey Mark 12:1
You can see that Jesus did indeed create mankind or the “vine”. However, he turned it over to his servants who are the “vine growers”. Did the “vine-growers” or God’s servants end up destroying God’s crop? Yes!
And he told this parable: “A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it and found none Luke 13:6
God “came back and wanted “fruit” or “good grapes” from his vineyard and found none. Here is another scripture that I believe is very revealing. It’s a great idea to read this entire parable.
So He said, “A nobleman went to a distant country to receive a kingdom for himself, and then return. 13 And he called ten of his slaves, and gave them ten minas and said to them, ‘Do business with this until I come back.’ Luke 19:12-13
So, we can begin to see a picture of the entire creation and how it “plunged into darkness” when the “vineyard” began to produce bad “fruit” or “grapes”. The “tenant” or “vineyard” growers deceived the creation and caused it to be plunged into darkness when it was subjected to the law. Here’s another verse talking about the “servants” being put in charge.
It is like a man going on a journey, when he leaves home and puts his servants in charge, each with his work, and commands the doorkeeper to stay awake Mark 13:34
“For it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted to them his property Matthew 25:14
Does this make sense? One of the next questions or thoughts that come to mind is that Satan or the “vine grower” who is God’s servant, somehow appears to be doing things that God is not aware of or God can’t overrule. This is NOT TRUE! God is totally in control of every aspect and is even there WITH Satan and each “grape” each time. God only speaks to Satan at times because Satan himself does not know the whole picture of God’s plan. He himself is wrapped in the same darkness that natural man is. All of Satan’s actions and everything he does is completely part of God’s full plan called “God’s mystery” by Paul. God’s plan is much bigger than him (Satan) and what natural man sees. Look at these verses:
that by revelation there was made known to me the mystery, as I wrote before in brief. 4 By referring to this, when you read you can understand my insight into the mystery of Christ, 5 which in other generations was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed to His holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit; 6 to be specific, that the Gentiles are fellow heirs and fellow members of the body, and fellow partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel, 7 of which I was made a minister, according to the gift of God’s grace which was given to me according to the working of His power. 8 To me, the very least of all saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unfathomable riches of Christ, 9 and to bring to light what is the administration of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God who created all things; 10 so that the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known through the church to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly places. 11 This was in accordance with the eternal purpose which He carried out in Christ Jesus our Lord Ephesians 3:3-11
This my friend is extremely deep and powerful! However, God has to reveal to us the TRUE meaning of a “Jew” and a “gentile” under the new or TRUE covenant or true reality. I shared this in other areas and you can search for it. Here is the most powerful truth that will unlock the above verses and feed you life. The Spirit of Christ has revealed that a true “Jew” is a BELIEVER and a true “gentile” is an UNBELIEVER or one still wrapped in darkness that God has not yet “woke up to the truth! Romans 2:28-29, Colossians 2:11, 1 Timothy 2:6!!!
Now, with that new definition in mind, please go back to Ephesians 3:3-11 above and replace “Jew” with “current believer of the gospel” and replace “gentile” with “current unbeliever soon to believe”.
I hope you are beginning to see how Christ has taken the Genesis 1:27 darkened spiritual man and the Genesis 2:7 darkened natural man and has “reconciled” them into ONE BODY to make ONE NEW MAN! Now, you will begin to see God’s most amazing and astounding plan. All has been reconciled at the cross and all will be merged into one body who is Christ. Ephesians 4:4, 2 Corinthians 5:19. Wow, this is so powerful and beyond words… but I am trying! 🙂
Is there more evidence of this? What else can we gather about this amazing “mystery” of God?
We can learn a lot about what Jesus tells us in Matthew 21:33-43 about the Kingdom of God and how it grows along with the “tares”. So, who are the “wheat” or God’s Kingdom and who are the “tares” or Satan’s kingdom. From what we learned thus far, we can conclude the “tares” are not the “born again” souls of man (Genesis 2 “Eve”), but are the natural souls and spirits of man before Christ returned to “take them back”. Remember above that “a man planted a vineyard and allowed vine growers to manage it”? When he returned and found there was no “fruit” and the “grapes” were bad, he tossed out the vine grower and took it back himself. Parts of the “vine” are now covered in darkness, but God’s Holy refining fire will remove these impurities. God calls this the “second death” when all the impurities are removed and the pure vine reappears. This is called “new birth” and being “born again from above”. John 3:3 What was natural is then translated to be spiritual and eternal. God calls this being “translated from the kingdom of darkness” into the “kingdom of the Son” or light. Colossians 1:13 This is what happened to ALL OF CREATION at the cross though we do not yet see it all. It will be completed over time or “ages”.
Natural man will not believe this and he will teach a gospel that requires us to “believe” before we are saved, but this is totally not true according to the WHOLE of scripture. Man as we know him can NOT believe in his soul realm. True believe ONLY comes in man’s SPIRIT who is one with Christ but THEN flows to man’s soul realm where his experience is. I share extensively on this in other areas. Only GOD himself has access to the “vine” or man’s spirit being who is the Genesis 1:27 “female” part of spiritual man. All this is controlled by GOD and according to HIS plan and EACH person will receive this truth that has ALREADY happened for ALL of “Adam” or all mankind already. We simply don’t know it. There is a “veil” between our soul where we live our daily lives and our “spirit man” where truth (Christ) is. Guess who is the actual veil itself? Guess who controls the flow of the truth into our soul?
by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain (veil), that is, his body Hebrews 10:20 NIV
Christ himself is also the VEIL TOO! He decides when natural man’s soul receives this truth that already happened for everyone two Thousand years ago! Now, can you understand why Jesus is the “author” of our faith? Hebrews 12:2 Is not an “author” one who originates or creates something? Very POWERFUL indeed once it hits you.
Any other evidence to show God is totally in Charge of everything?
Ponder this verse for a bit as it is very relevant. This shows us how Satan himself, who was the “vine grower” was wrapped into darkness and how hatred was put between him and man.
The Lord God said to the serpent,
“Because you have done this,
Cursed are you more than all cattle,
And more than every beast of the field;
On your belly you will go,
And dust you will eat
All the days of your life;
God (Jesus) returned to his “vine yard” and found the “grapes” had gone bad as they had eaten the law and entered into “death” or separation from God (life) itself. The vine grower (Satan) was stripped of his Heavenly ruling ability as a “vine keeper” when he was cast “down to his belly” or a lower, darker realm called “Earth”.
Additionally, God put “enmity” or hatred between his offspring and God’s offspring.
And I will put enmity
Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her seed;
He shall bruise you on the head,
And you shall bruise him on the heel.” Genesis 3:15
His offspring are all called “flesh” which is man wrapped in darkness before God causes new birth and burns away the darkness via his Holy fire.
I am here to tell you my friend that our existence on Earth right now in a physical, natural body is really the WOMAN or Eve only she is still wrapped in darkness. She has given birth to the entire new creation through her “seed” who is the body of Christ. Revelation 12. For now, she is still wrapped in the darkness of the LAW and not able to see it in the natural realm of the soul.
Let’s Summarize again.
So, let’s recap. God made Genesis 1:27 powerful spiritual man and all of creation. This is God’s “vine yard”. God put one of his servants in charge of the “vineyard” while he went “away”. This servant temporarily held the power of the “male” side of Genesis 1:27 man who was the spiritual ruler from Heaven over the spiritual realm of Earth. Thus, he ruled over a subservient “female” spirit that is man’s natural human spirit. Man’s natural spirit also had a partner that is the soul and both in a body on the physical Earth. God told his servant who had this ruling power “be fruitful and multiply”. He created fruit (grapes) but they were bad because God’s servant fed them the law and they entered into “death” or separation from God (who alone is life). God returned and fired his servant and was kicked out of Heaven and wrapped in darkness. He also put hatred between the grapes he produced and told him one day one of the “grapes” would crush his head or fully defeat him. This is Jesus at the cross. He “returned” to the vineyard as a grape itself, to totally fulfill the law and thus win back the freedom of the entire set of grapes. They were no longer under law which is what produced death, separation and darkness!
This will sound very crazy, but he also fully redeemed even the VINE KEEPERS! Many will find this hard to believe, but even the vine keepers or Satan (Lucifer?) himself will be fully redeemed. He is the very mind of natural man or the mind of the “bad grapes”. God will redeem all of these fallen spirits and souls wrapped in darkness including the very source! This is the powerful story of King Nebuchadnezzar in Daniel 2 and 4! This is an actual story of the “vine grower” or of God’s servant turned “Satan”. He is the one who has been given all the power of Genesis 1:27 man and rules over the entire Earthly kingdom. Please read this and hopefully, you will begin to see it too. Parts of Isaiah and Jeremiah and Ezekiel tell this same amazing story and it makes sense. God is so good and he himself created the ability for his servant to sin and become Satan, but he would redeem him through his son.
I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things. Isaiah 45:7
The Lord has made everything for its own purpose,
Even the wicked for the day of evil. Proverbs 16:4
What if God, although willing to demonstrate His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruction? Romans 9:22
Christ Redeemed ALL things at the Cross
Prior to the cross all of creation was wrapped in the darkness and death of the law. It is a huge foundation to understand that the law always produces DEATH in anything under it that isn’t’ God himself. Christ removed all the darkness which is what caused and produced ALL SIN (separation from God) when he died! His death was a one-time, perfect, ETERNAL sacrifice or payment for all the sins, for all mankind (spiritual and natural) for all times that the law revealed. Hebrews 9:12! The death of Christ was the “death” (and spiritual rebirth) of not only the Genesis 1:27 male man, his death took the “female” man and ALL THE REST OF THE “dead” CREATION WITH HIM! Thus, Christ is NOW THE GENESIS 1:27 ruling MALE “man”! Christ is now the HEAD and rightful owner and God over this entire creation! (Of course, this is MAN’S natural view only. He was already the owner!) We are now married to Christ in our spirit and he IS OUR SPIRIT! Christ not only replaced the Genesis 1:27 “male” portion of man, he replaced the Genesis 1:27 “FEMALE” portion too! It’s even bigger than that, but let’s keep it where we can start to begin to understand. Look at this most beautiful verse:
But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit 1 Corinthians 6:17 KJV
Christ at the cross did something so amazing and spectacular that we are just beginning to see a small glimpse of! He was made “sin” itself and he took all “sin” into death and he himself replaced BOTH SIDES of Genesis 1:27 man. He became the rightful KING over ALL of the ones that Satan had ruler ship of. Plus, Christ also replaced the actual darkened and veiled spirit of mankind too. Both sides died with Christ at the cross. This happened in the true realm of the Spirit and WILL manifest or appear in time according to God’s perfect plan. Now, this is not an “individual deal” where each person has to “believe” in order to make it occur for them. This is an ALL OR NOTHING deal just like Adam plunged ALL of us under the rule of Satan in the first place.
Thus, my friend, this is not only for those that believe! It is for ALL! “Belief” as man teaches it happens in the realm of human will called the soul. That is not TRUE BELIEF according to scripture. True belief happens in our HEART or spirit man who is the Genesis 1:27 “female” man. This “man” is not reachable by man himself! This can only be done by Christ himself in the realm of the Spirit. This is the “new heart” that God promised in Ezekiel 36:26 and this very NEW Heart we have been given is CHRIST HIMSELF! He replaced the old spirit we had who was the slave of “sin” or Satan. Now, let me share a powerful truth of the New Covenant or true reality. Under the Old Covenant of Law, sin was breaking one of God’s laws. It was defined as a behavior. Now, God has revealed the truth that true sin is UNBELIEF of the truth. John 16:8-9! The one who created this unbelief was Satan himself. 2 Corinthians 4:4! Satan was the one who “blinded the mind of unbelievers so they couldn’t see the glorious truth”. So, let’s redefine “sin” to line up with the TRUTH that we now know. Think of “sin” (and “death”) being an actual name of Satan himself and “righteousness” being the actual name of Jesus. Now, in scripture, you can replace “sin” with “Satan” and “righteousness” with “Christ”. This is going to bless your socks off! Now read this and ponder the majestic true spiritual meaning of these most powerful words. You will NEVER see them the same again and will fall down and thank the Lord when they hit you.
knowing this, that our old self was crucified with Him, in order that our body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin; 7 for he who has died is freed from sin Romans 6:7
Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, 9 knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, is never to die again; death no longer is master over Him. 10 For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. 11 Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus Romans 6:8-11
Wow, that is so powerful. I hope you are seeing what this is saying! We used to be slaves to Satan before Christ. He made us sin because he caused us to not see the truth. True “sin” always was unbelief because the law always blinds us further. 1 Corinthians 15:56, Romans 3:20, Romans 4:15 Also, don’t worry about the word “if” in Romans 6:8. It doesn’t mean that we possibly didn’t die with him, it just means that we also believe we will live with him. That is what the “if’ is referring to. This next verse confirms this.
Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life Romans 6:4
So, if you have been seeing the magnitude of the cross and how Christ took all sin into death with him and he took over the spot as both Genesis 1:27 male and female spirit man, everything else pales in comparison. Now, we can understand so many other parts of scripture as well.
We can understand why Abraham was asleep while there was a smoking oven and a flaming torch that actually enacted the covenant of the promise that I am referring to. Genesis 15:17 Abraham is us and he didn’t have any part in the New Covenant. He was just in a “deep sleep” which is the same “sleep” or “death” we are in while in these bodies. Genesis 15:12 God is doing all the work for us behind the scenes while we “sleep” a natural life. It is very interesting that God tells Abraham he and his people will be “slaves for 400 years”. I believe this could possibly be telling us how long we have to stay in bodies that are natural and dying. There is no doubt the natural human body is spiritual dead and is a “slave”.
My friend, I hope you can see how all things changed at the cross. I could actually end things right here, but so many still don’t see the truth of the cross. Really the cross makes our discussion of Genesis 1 and 2 absolutely futile as these refer to “Earthly Kingdoms” described in Daniel 2. Now, look at Daniel 2:44. It reveals that all the while the Earthly Kingdoms are occurring God is also setting up his hidden Kingdom as we don’t see it at all. This is the Kingdom that will appear and “crush all the other Kingdoms”.
Is this all by God’s Sovereign plan?
Absolutely, I believe it is and Daniel 2:44 just revealed this to us. Man must experience the “sleep of death” and the “sting of sin” before he really knows that true righteousness ONLY comes from God himself and not man. I believe that all the things that occurred in Genesis 1 through Revelation are all by God’s sovereign plan. I believe he won’t allow us to have ONE THOUGHT that isn’t part of his will. I believe that “Satan” was created by God himself and that the only reason he could have sinned was because God allowed it. God tells us plainly in Isaiah 45:7 KJV that “he creates the light and forms the darkness”. He creates all evil that is allowed to exist and it is all his servant.
What about Adam and Eve? Did they plunge all mankind into sin and death?
We already discussed this already, but many believe that Adam was created “perfect” or “near perfect” and then “sinned and plunged all of mankind into sin and death”. This is not true at all. It is true that “sin” entered the world THROUGH Genesis 2:7 “Adam”, but “sin” is deception or SATAN/SPIRITUAL DARKNESS HIMSELF who was the MORE powerful Genesis 1:27 male ruling spirit! The only way he was even allowed access to Adam and Eve in the garden was because he had the power and authority of their “master spirit” who is the Genesis 1:27 male part of the man. This was given to him by God and his deception was allowed. As I said, I believe he actually created or “formed” Adam.
Also, we have to realize that the person we know of as “Adam” is a type of man’s natural spirit as we talked about. “Eve” is man’s soul. “Eve” was not even created with the “breath of life”, she came out of the “bone” or life of Adam. This shows us she is man’s soul who is dependent on man’s spirit or “Adam” for life. Also, because Adam was man’s spirit, he was the one who received the command directly from God and not Eve. Natural man always hears from God through his spirit and not his soul. Adam and Eve should have never been able to be deceived and thus separated. This is always where man is tempted. Satan goes after the soul or “Eve” and separates her from man’s spirit or “Adam”. Even though it says Adam was “right there with her” I don’t believe he heard the Serpent talking or anything. Satan was using the spiritual power of deception to isolate and separate man’s soul (Eve) from his spirit so he could trick her into breaking Gods command. My point is that Adam (man’s spirit) and Eve (man’s soul) in the final, true and New creation will have NO separation possible between man’s soul and man’s spirit. So Adam and Eve were not complete and not even close.
One final thing to consider is that sin and death didn’t arrive on the scene when the broke God’s command. Death was first given by God to Adam when he gave him the command “do not…” Anytime God’s law is given to man, he dies. This is because ONLY God can perfectly fulfill the law in its 100% ongoing forever requirements. Adam was under death as soon as he was told to “do not eat of that fruit”.
Is there any way the account of Adam and Eve’s creation could have worked?
Given what we know now, in order for the Genesis 1 and 2 scenario to work we would need the following to occur:
1) Genesis 1:27 male and female spiritual mankind to merge as one and become one with God. Genesis 1:27 man would have to be God himself.
2) Genesis 2:7 “Adam” and “Eve” would have been created of Heavenly, eternal material also of God and not made of the darkened “dust” of the “ground”.
3) Adam (man’s spirit) and Eve (man’s soul) would have to be in perfect union with no possibility of separation.
4) Adam and Eve in their perfect union would have to also be in perfect union with the new Genesis 1:27 powerful ruling spiritual man who is God himself.
Didn’t we just describe the New Creation in Christ? I believe we did and it is so powerful to understand that God has reconciled the two creations together into one at the cross. His Holy, refining fire WILL remove all the UNRIGHTEOUSNESS which is the DARKNESS and DECEPTION that this entire creation is wrapped in. My friend, that will be one powerful day when the very words of Luke 3:6.
AND ALL FLESH WILL SEE THE SALVATION OF GOD.'” Luke 3:6
God bless you my friend. I truly believe that God is ushering in the next age because we have never before seen these most powerful things. I hope you were fed.
