What Happened in the Garden of Eden? Part 9
Like begets like, this is the rule of inspiration as mentioned in the first chapter of Genesis. Man was created by Christ both physically and spiritually. He was separated into Adam and Eve because Adam was lonely. God had commanded Adam to “multiply and replenish the Earth.” This Adam did by only one woman, Eve. She was his one wife and but one! After man had sinned, Christ revealed to both Adam and Eve WHY procreation changed. Because of the part Eve had in the sin of Adam, she was told that her child birth would produce pain: “Unto the woman God said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.” Genesis 3:16 That was the ONLY change in procreation. Many confuse the fact that mankind has two fathers in birth; the physical and spiritual. Again, like produces like. Our physical likeness comes from our physical fathers and mothers while our spiritual likeness comes from our spiritual Father, Christ. Hebrews 12:9 Again, like begets like. Since our physical body comes from Adam (that all believe, I guess), our spiritual likeness comes from Christ. This being true, how could Adam have passed something he had nothing to do with?? The change in child birth was pain NOT man supplying the spiritual part of our nature!! “The burden of the word of the Lord forIsrael, says the Lord, who stretches forth the heavens, and lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him.” Zechariah 12:1 “Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.” Ecclesiastes 12:7 “Thou hidest Thy face, they are troubled: Thou takest way their breath, they die, and return to their dust. Thou sendest forth Thy spirit, they are created (this is the Hebrew word “bara”- to create something out of nothing).” Psalms 104:29-30 “For in Thee (Christ) is the fountain (source) of life: in Thy light shall we see light.” Psalm 36:9 “To whom hast Thou uttered words? And whose spirit came from Thee?” Job 26:4 “In Him was/is/had been life, and the life was the light of men.” John 1:4 I think that should sufficiently prove the point!!
Since man does not pro-generate our soul and spirit and the only part of our anatomy that can sin is the soul, just how did Adam have anything to do with propagating sin, since the only thing he brings to the birth process is his physical likeness which cannot sin?? Why blame Adam with the propagation of sin, original or un-original!! The mind of man is not the origination of sin!! “Every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it brings forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, brings forth death.” James 1:14-15 When buried in the grave after death (I hope they bury and not cremate!) the mind remains in that buried body while the soul-spirit goes back to God who gave it.” There is something in man far more than flesh, it is his soul and spirit; that soul and spirit never cease to be, they are like the eternal Father who pro-generated them, Christ! That that is within the nature called human is what I call the “I” that is within you.
The soul sins AFTER incarnation!! Was it not in existence by plan as well as the body? The body was dieing before sin, this is a part of what God planned, and the body did not die as a result of sin, that was the soul. Ezekiel 18:20, 4. If the soul was never in the human body, could the body have sinned?? The physical body was never to be eternal!!
