That when Adam & Eve had the direct guidance and revelation of God, they had paradise on Earth, and when they turned away from that, they had Satan.
I was riding in the car with my aunt recently when I told her that if wealth permitted I’d like to have a car service: I don’t want a car; I don’t want to buy a car, just to have a car service that picks me up wherever and whenever I want.
Who do you think you are?! She laughed.
And I laughed too, but much later I thought, Hey! Wait a minute; I’m God’s child, that’s who!
Life hasn’t looked the way I thought it would over the past 6 months, but God has shown up as in Exodus, nothing short of a miracle.
Everything in my physical realm life seemed to freeze in disaster mode, while a rope ladder in retrospect seemed to come down from the sky to show me the only way out. I was shown how to begin waking and sleeping whenever I chose, to make businesses out of what was in me to do, how to have food, clean clothes and to keep my own apartment, all with little to no money. To “suddenly” come back down the ladder after what seemed like lifetimes, naked, and to look around and see that nothing had changed but my want for nothing other than the everything that was God, and to have that in spiritual abundance All by faith.
Because what I meant to say to my aunt was, busting your ass and struggling and “working hard” is really not where it’s at. Life is easy in God, hard in the devil.
For I don’t think it was God who cursed Adam and Eve when they were expelled from Eden, but the natural consequence that is the destruction of Satan, who destroys you when you choose him. So why would you, unless you really could not see?
Then to Adam He said […]
‘Cursed *is the ground for your sake;
In toil you shall eat *of it
All the days of your life.
Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you,
And you shall eat the herb of the field.
In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread
Till you return to the ground,
For out of it you were taken;
For dust you *are,
And to dust you shall return.’
But The New Testament was written to remind man that he is loved, and that he can return not to the finality of the empty dust in hard toil by the devil, but to the eternal rich spirit in the Father, who gives you permission to live an easy life if you would just remember that you once did.
