“But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die”
Genesis 3:3 (KJV)
God tells us that which is good and bad.
He commands to love,
He gives so many other instructions.
Will we deny them? Yes, most will.
It is a joyous time when God speaks to us.
He spoke to Adam and Eve.
Is it different now?
God cares enough to instruct in words.
There is cause and effect.
Sin has its consequence, fruit of temptation and death.
Each day He speaks to us.
We had but one thing to remember: “Lest we Die”
We failed but God knew Remedy for consequence.
Bearing our cross,
It is not easy.
The chalice stayed with our Savior, with us.
Will we listen?
“For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”
Genesis 3:5 (KJV)
The fate of Mankind is held in two verses.
The rationale: We are told right and wrong, we are tempted, we rationalize, we succumb weakly to temptation, then we justify.
This is sinning.
For Satan says we can be God.
But what of he that stands beside me?
Should not a new god be born?
Then there are three and again: four, five…
More gods now present as
A billion moral pinnacles are rationalized.
The world is thus.
And should we follow this sequence,
Our con-sequence is death.
There is but One God.
We are fools who listen to serpents.
Joy is in wisdom,
Love in His eyes.
Life in His Kingdom.
Eternity never dies.
Are we responding?
I pray so.
