THE JOURNEY BEGINS — 11

Lucifer was dethroned and caste to the ground with his angels because he chose to fight. Adding rebellion unto his sin and multiplied his words (lies) against the living God. He became devil: the personification of evil. The devil deceived Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, by giving them the wrong manual [lie]. The devil was very envious of Man, who would now enjoy what he failed to appreciate before his dethronement. He then devised a means to deceive Adam and Eve to disobey God, in order to strip the glory God bestowed on them to pass on to their generations.

As serpent, he deceived Adam and Eve to be unfaithful as himself and they yielded by eating the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil of which God commanded them not to eat. It affected man’s spiritual consciousness and wisdom that they could not come to terms with the inspiration of God. There is a spirit in man, but it takes the Spirit of God to give him understanding. Man’s understanding has been corrupted by the reason of disobedience that he is no more perfect in the ways of God.

This unrighteousness led to the separation between man and God and subsequently to degradation of the status of humanity which also affected other things God created. No one can enter into rest with unfaithful lifestyle. One of Satan’s lie is that a man has no predestined purpose in life. ‘For all this they sinned still, and believed not for his wondrous works. Therefore their days did he consume in vanity, and their years in trouble.’ (Psalm 78:32-33). Man wants to establish his own invention apart from God’s intention. ‘Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions.’ (Ecclesiastes 7:29).————–To be continued.

    If everything is God’s will then maybe the creation of Evil/Devil, the fall of Adam and Eve is also a part of her/his script – in that case they were just the pawns in the game of the Supreme being/ God/ the ultimate Power and so are all of us… including the sinners as well as pious ones. What do you think? Is there something called a freewill of a person or this is all just a story with pre-defined events. Are we nothing more than puppets in the hand of some powerful entity responsible for running and maintenance of this universe. Sorry I am not that well versed in the nuances of Bible and may have asked a very trivial question. What I have learned from Bhagavad Gita is that we all have a free will, and we are all responsible for our very own actions (Karma) within the well laid our guidelines of the society/culture of a particular place at a particular time for and by a particular set of people (Dharma). To know and trying to reach God is to know about our duties & carry out our action in accordance with the rules of the society, with the focus constantly on that almighty power, we should not be afraid of result of our actions, as well as we are not violating any rules and our conscious is clear. God is always there, we just need to awakened our self to realize her/him.

      Thanks for your views. I do appreciate it and you have the right to err your understanding. The real fact is this! There is only one God and nobody can be equal to Him. He is in total control. The way to this only one true and wise God is His Word and His Word was manifested in the name of Jesus Christ. God is His Word.

      John 1:1 said, ‘In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.’ He can only guide you in all truth when you come to Him true Jesus. He is the way, the truth and the life. He had ordained all things for His pleasure.

      Everyone will account for trespassing His wholesome work. It is likened to a farmer that has cultivated a garden. He cannot prevent the birds from intruding but also has the power to harm them whenever he decides. The Bible said in Romans 9:17, ‘For the Scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth.’

      But the good news is that He will always forgive when you confess and forsake your trespasses. He alone knows all things. We do not have all the answers unless He reveals. Deuteronomy 29:29 said, ‘The secret things belong unto the LORD our God; but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.’ God bless you!
