Notes & Transcripts
1Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 2And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. 4And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5For 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.
They were a brand new creation.
The almighty had exercised his creative genius and constructed from the dust of the ground the crowning act of his creation.
Everything else God had called into being,
By his creative word, the worlds, and its galaxies came into existence.
Watch with me, as God steps out into the vast nothingness of space.
Observe, as God’s eyes and omniscient mind, searches the darkness with radar like sensitivity, seeking to find anything that was something, or nothing that could be made everything, and in this vast galaxies of ours, God discovers something he already knows, the earth is without form and void.
And then God speaks, there is a cataclysmic explosion as various gases are ignited by the power of the word, and ah, light appears.
Then with his creative genius, God divides the light from the darkness,
The heavens from the earth,
ADVERTISEMENT
The land from the sea,
He calls forth grass and vegetation,
The Sun, moon and stars.
Then by his word, God fills the ocean with various kinds of fish.
The great white roamed the deep, the blue whale and sperm whale cruised the oceans,
By his word, the bald eagle soared in the sky, and the tiny sparrow filled the trees.
By his word, the great bison, roamed the Americas, and the elephants roamed the mighty Continent of Africa.
By His word, the majestic lions filled the jungle, the leopard roam the plains,
The cheetah, soared through the Forrest, and the bear roamed the hills.
Then despite the power of his word, God showed his interest and belief in people by kneeling by the side of the Nile Rive, and there the master designer, carved and shaped and constructed and behold man and woman came into existence from the hand of God.
In the image of God, created he Him, Male and female created he them.
Then God kissed the clay and they came to life.
God’s objective in the creation was to create people.
The Galaxies, the star, the solar System, the mighty Oceans, with all their hidden secrets,
were all created for people, they were to make people happy and productive.
Within the bosom of people, God place the capacity for greatness.
Over time, with faithfulness and good stewardship, People, would grow to be as God.
Mortal would become immortal.
So God placed them in the perfect environment for grow, productivity and development.
The master designer, the creator, placed man and woman in their first school.
1. Adam was to by investigation discover knowledge, And by association discover God.
Adam microscopic eyes searched the secrets of the cells and the atoms.
His telescopic vision, investigated the galaxies and the stars.
Nature was his classroom.
God was his teacher,
The angels were his tutors.
This new couple spent their days observing each other and investigating nature,
The leaves revealed their secrets to their eyes as they observed the movements of protons, neutrons and electrons, and what they did not understand Angels were available to explain.
Then each evening, Adam had an appointment with God.
By Association and interaction with the almighty he was to becoming more and more like the almighty.
Adam needed to be with God, so as to become more like God.
Adam was to learn Fatherhood from the almighty.
The celestial being who ruled the earth and the sky, thought it important enough to keep an appointment with Adam.
So everyday, God came by to spend so time with Adam
So that Adam would become more and more like him.
And if we would be like God, we must spend time with God.
Every morning, Every evening, visit the closet of prayer and talk with
God.
Have a little talk with Jesus, and tell him all about our troubles.
He will hear, our faintest cry, he will answer buy and buy.
As we spend time with God, people will catch a glimpse of the Almighty, in us.
In our words, in our thoughts, in or actions, they aught to see Jesus.
Let them behold the almighty who holds the world in palm of his hands.
Let them see him, who commands the sea not to overrun its banks,
And the oxen to eat grass and yet grow strong.
Let them see him, who binds the influence of Pledies or loose the bands of orion.
Who commands the lightning to flash across the sky, and the thunder to roll, bringing fear to the hearts of men.
And when they see him in us, they we aught to tell them. that the almighty, loves them, and would condescend to come by their homes every evening and morning, so that they might know him.
2. One day something terrible happened to Adam and Eve.
The devil appeared and caused Eve and Adam to question the master teacher.
1Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 2And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. 4And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5For 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.
Here is the first introduction of the theory of evolution.
The first introduction of false scientific knowledge.
Satan presented to Eve a creature that had evolved a talking serpent.
Then, he challenged God’s knowledge.
Did God say what you eat is going to kill you.
You got to be kidding.
Sis, Eat this and you will become wiser.
Eat this fruit and you will evolve from humanity to Divinity.
God’s science is flawed.
He does not understand the biology of your system.
God is simply trying to deprive you of something.
God does not want you to have the best.
A fruit is not going to kill anybody.
She took that Fruit and Sin entered.
When Sin entered, the mind was dwarfed, Eve could not think as clearly as she could before.
She could not grasp the eternal things of God, as readily as she had.
Her Character became flawed; her thoughts became evil and her propensities tended to death rather than life.
Now Adam and eve and their descendants need training and education to make the character consistent in doing right.
Education was to needed to renew the mind and transform the Character back to God intention.
The Christian is a spiritual person.
He is spiritual all the time.
He must develop a spiritual mind, a spiritual character, a spiritual personality.
And this can only be done when they have a spiritual Worldview.
Everything we do has spiritual implication.
And that is why the Hebrew boys were able to say to the King, we are not careful to answer you in this matter, the God we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, but if he chooses not to, we will not serve your God, or bow to your image.
They were spiritual all the time, in front of the King, or in their secret closets.

1Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 2And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. 4And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5For 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.
A. If you eat this fruit, you will evolve from Humanity to Divinity.
There is no such thing as death. You will only pass from one stage as another.
You will become the center of the universe, God did not tell you, because he wants to be the center of your world.
19God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?[1]
19What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 20For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s[2]
6And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. [3]
A. Good for food – I can eat what I want if I think if is good for me.
B. Pleasant to the eyes. I can trust my sense to determine what is best for me
C. desired to make one wise-God wants to deny me scientific knowledge.
Ah what a terrible day it was for humanity.
God’s plan had been side railed.
God’s new creation had been bankrupted.
Humanity had sold itself into slavery.
Fathers and mothers would be at odds with each other.
Children would become disrespectful and even kill each other.
Divorce and separation would raise its ugly heads.
Worldliness, and infidelity, became the way of life.
But praise God For Jesus.
Because the Bible says, God came looking.
Our eternal father, Creator of heaven and earth came looking.
Adam, Adam, he called, where are you.
Looking, Looking, God came looking.
For thousands of years God kept looking.
Finally one day, God took off his Kingly robe, put on his peasants garb.
Squeezed himself into a tiny seed.
Placed himself in a womans womb.
Birth himself in a dunghill called a manger.
Walked the dirty streets of Palestine, Looking, looking calling if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature.
Oh every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and ye that have not money, come ye buy wine and milk without money and without price.
They caught him, and they wiped him, and the hung him on a tree then placed him in a tomb, and said shut up.
But Praise God, Sunday Morning came, and he got up and kept looking.
I have the key, to hell death and the grave he said. I have the key, I have the key.
I can restore you.
I can redeem you.
Oh if it had not been for Jesus.
My destiny would be hell and my life would be caios.
If it had not been for jesus.
my dreams would be broken and my future would be dark.
Yes I was sinking deep in sin.
Far from the blissful shore.
Very deeply stained within, sinking to rise no more.
But the master of the sea, heard my despairing cry.
From the waters lifted me, now safe am I.
Souls in Danger, look above, Jesus completely saves.
He will lift you by his love, out of his angry wave.
He the master of the sea, billows his will obey.
He your savior wants you to be saved today.
Love lifed me, love lifted me.
When nothing else could help. Love lifted me.
If it had not been for the Lord on my side, where would I be, where would I be.
Come every soul, by sin oppressed, there’s mercy with the Lord.
For He will surly give you rest, by trusting in his word.
Only trust him, only trust him, only trust him now.
He will save you. He will save you. He will save you now.
