Prosperity Post #33
Having finished Chapter 2 of Genesis, recall the following passage I asked everyone to remember in Prosperity Post #30:
17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
We now move onto Chapter 3.
1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
3 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.
4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
5 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.
It is interesting to note here that the snake is the one telling the truth and The Jesus is the liar. Of course, The Jesus lied in much the same way a parent lies to their children about Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy. That is, completely for the benefit of the children. The Jesus lied for the benefit of Adam and Eve.
We’ll continue on with the Genesis story, next time.
