When we were Immortal

Quote Posted on Updated on

Why an unfriendly disposition towards us?Spitual Hubs www.stop-alcool.ch

Adam was created perfect and dwelled in God’s presence in
Eden. As he walked through the Garden of Eden, imagine light upon his face illuminating the formidable features of the first man. Part soil, partly God breathed Adam walked with God upon the earth as an immortal. Satan aware of this union sought to terminate any form of discipleship upon the earth towards God. Adam’s peace with God became the prime target of Satan. Just as the angels who rebelled, man’s predisposition of being an agent of free will, made him a candidate for adhering to the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life. Although Lucifer’s metamorphosis into Satan was instantaneous, his legacy’s best reflected as “Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall” Proverbs 16:18. Just because a thing does not exist anymore, its existence can be veiled but not denied. “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices” 2 Corinthians 2:11.

Failure follows Satan! Satan influenced disobedience to God through lies; thus, affecting the DNA of our progenitors making Adams seed have a natural disposition towards sin and away from following God. Adam shifts blame to Eve; then she points to the serpent. In Eden the opening for the destroyer was disobedience and acceptance of taking responsibility for sin or failure can only result back into success with godly remedies. The remedy for sin is a sacrifice as foreshadowed by Levitical law. “For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul” Leviticus 17:11.

 

“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come into him, and will sup with him, and he with me” Revelation 3:20.

The Apostle John’s depicted Jesus in his writings as standing at the door, this is interpreted as the door of our heart. The Levitical priest sprinkled blood at the door of the tabernacle making an application to atone one’s sin. The destroyer is shut out by confessing that Christ died for our sin and believing that this is an atonement for our sin. John called Jesus the Lamb of God slain before the foundations of the world. This same Jesus of Nazareth, from the tribe of Judah, of the lineage of Israel, of the seed of Abraham, descended from Shem of the son of Noah. Jesus’ human genealogy written in the book of Luke qualifies him as a sacrifice the immaculate conception within the womb of the virgin makes him pure and able to cleanse our hearts unto God.

 

Israel’s Green Socks

Israel wore one pair of socks for 6 months.  They were green and never stunk.  He had time on his hand so he cleaned them ever chance he got.  Every time he stepped out of his cell, murderers gazed and robbers railed but, he never fell.

As he read the Good Book, he acquired sympathy for the Children of Israel and their wilderness experience.  Israel began to understand why they achieved zero velocity. Going nowhere fast; talking slick but really sick inside.  One day during his 6 month stay he had an epiphany: a sort of a self discovery.  Reflecting back, he thought: “God, had His hand my his life all the time.”  Also realizing that he’ll make little progress, if any with a bitter disposition regardless of circumstance.

His cell mates cheered ecstatically when cops crashed as the evening news reported.  This he wondered about in bewilderment and concluded that their cheers were disguised hostility.  Israel discovered that you can be free while incarcerated and to be bitter inside, even if you have a reason is a tragic experience.  He didn’t want to lose hope as the others.

      Serving time for running from the cops, in contrast to the others who were looking at 35, 65 or 99 years.  Pulled over after the cops noticed his car trunk ajar, he put the petal to the metal.  Afraid they’ll find the open containers and paranoid he sped off.   He was caught tazed and processed all with those same green socks.

His green socks never smelled and gained distinction as the one who wore them became known as short timer (an instant target).  With much caution he tryed to understand the authorities who put him with jealous killers.  He knew the authorities were not empathetic to a brown mother who raised him clean.  Israel thought “I hope I can make it out of this alive.”  He knew that his demise would irreparably tear his mother apart.  So what did Israel do while in the fire of this affliction?  He started a gospel choir and it was revealed that he was indeed an evangelist.

Those green socks soon became a symbol of inspiration inside the walls of the jail where hope seemed to fail.  An itinerant evangelist was born there that stepped upon the burning coals of affliction, wearing green socks and flip flops striding where free men never crept under constant awareness of being killed the grace of God protected Israel where the price of human life was worth a honey bun.

His green socks never gave, even to his last day of this experience when he saw a peeking toe.  That is how he knew it was time to go.

The Short Walk

Have you ever been in a total solar eclipse? I remember being in a total solar eclipse when I lived in Michigan (1974). The only thing I can remember them telling us that it will be over soon and not to look at the sun. I was six years old at the time and I remember walking to school in the dark. I thought that this was weird but very cool. As a six year old you’re always experiencing new things but this phenomenon was exceptional. We lived just across the street from the elementary school and on my way to school during the short walk, I didn’t remember seeing the sun, but not looking at the sun never made much sense to me, since it was dark anyway and I’ve stared into the sun at full strength before and my eyes could still see. Later that day, I remember running from dragonflies! Adults said that if they ever stung you then you would die.

I believed this too but later found out dragonflies were not poisonous. Yet, I still hear them tell people not to look at the sun during a total solar eclipse. Ironically, it was from pictures of this observation (a total eclipse) that proved that mathematical formula for Einstein’s Theory of Relativity in Australia (1922).

“Stay foolish ” (Steve Jobs).  Today’s (March 20, 2015) total eclipse can be seen in the Faroe Islands and the eclipse will be seen parts of the North Atlantic, Greenland, Africa and Europe at 4:30 (EST).  Why would anyone not want to see the total eclipse despite what they say about looking at this once in a lifetime event?  You can watch it live.  Join the fraternity of the low percentage of the population that has ever seen a total eclipse.

 

“On average total eclipses appear every 360 for any given location.”
