THE GOSPEL (ABIDING IN LIGHT).

The “LORD God” in Genesis 2 is EmmanuEL -The CHRIST- who created “physically” after the spiritual creation in Genesis 1
——————————–

Genesis 3:5
“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.”

THE SERPENT used the “lack of knowledge (ignorance)” of Adam and Eve against them in the above verse -as Adam and Eve were actually “gods” because they were created in the image and likeness of GOD ~ Genesis 1:26-
——————————–

Genesis 2:17
“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.”

To DIE in the above verse meant loosing (faith) -SPIRITUAL- connection with EmmanuEL (“LORD God”)

[And the long lasting effect of their obedience to the SERPENT (when they disobeyed EmmanuEL’s words) -which Adam and Eve did not know at that time- was that the LORD God (EmmanuEL) would have to hand over the reigns to the SERPENT (LORD)]

Proverbs 8:22
“The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.”

Since it’s not in the “DNA” of EmmanuEL to LIE, He had to send Adam and Eve out of His jurisdiction ~ Genesis 3:23-24

Genesis 3:23
“Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground FROM WHENCE HE WAS TAKEN.”

The SERPENT then had jurisdiction on “Earth” _from whence Adam was taken_
———————————-

After THE SERPENT successfully derailed Adam and Eve, he got control over them in Genesis 4 (as you’d do well to note that there was no mention of “LORD God” but “LORD” in verse 4)

Genesis 4:26
“And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: _then began men to call upon the name of the LORD_.”

This was how Humans -who were initially relating with GOD through EmmanuEL (aka CHRIST, aka LIGHT)- started relating with GOD through the SERPENT (aka DEVIL and SATAN, aka DARKNESS)
——————————

Proverbs 8:30-31
“Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him;

Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and MY DELIGHTS WERE WITH THE SONS OF MEN.”

BUT EmmanuEL -the CHRIST- did not give up on us. #HalleluJAH!!!

He had to take the place of Adam so as to right the wrongs of Adam.

So, He came down from Heaven to Earth to PAY THE PRICE so that we can be (awakened from DEATH) ALIVE -mending the SPIRITUAL connection that got lost via Adam&Eve once and for all-

1 Corinthians 15
45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; _the last Adam was made a quickening spirit_.

47
The first man is of the earth, earthy: _the second man is the Lord from heaven_.

The Scribes and Pharisees and Saduccees and Chief Priests and Jews, etc. were relating with GOD through the SERPENT before CHRIST came.

CHRIST tried all His possible best to make them understand that they were following the WRONG WAY{John 12:35} to GOD and SEE that He is actually the TRUE LIGHT but the SERPENT already had such stronghold -of darkness- on most of them (which is why Christ said “John 3:19”)

John 3:19
“And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.”
—————————————

ACCEPT CHRIST AS YOUR “PERSONAL” SAVIOR NOW SO THAT YOU CAN BE FREE FROM THE CLUTCHES OF THE SERPENT.

~ FOLLOWING THE LAW OF MOSES IS FOLLOWING THE FIRST ADAM WHICH AUTOMATICALLY MAKES YOU A PROTEGE OF THE SERPENT.

~ FOLLOW CHRIST -THE LAST ADAM, THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD, THE WAY, THE TRUTH, THE LIFE- AND BE FREE!!!

John 12:46
“I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.”

Luke 1:79
“To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.”
