Eve, The Angel, and The Lion!

“It was Eve that the scriptures say was deceived and was in transgression. She was deceived by an angel, a fallen angel called Satan. He was the Serpent in the garden that whispered to her. He hissed at her to look at something that was forbidden to receive. She opened a portal that caused death to come in. James 1:14-15 says “But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.” Lust caused an opening that brought a spiral of death into the Earth. Adam sinned willfully, but Eve was deceived by lust of flesh (eat), eyes, and pride of understanding: Genesis 3:4-6 says “And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For 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. And 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.” Notice how 1 John 2:16-17 speaks what the world offers “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.” God gave Adam and Eve every tree of the garden to freely eat except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. This tree was a tree of self denial. They had to deny this tree, meaning they had to deny themselves. But both couldn’t deny their flesh and they ate of the tree. But Jesus, the last Adam, took up a tree of self denial, the cross, and destroyed the fruit of that tree, original sin, by becoming sin to get us back to a tree in the midst of the paradise of God. Jesus died on a tree to bring us back to a tree in a new Jerusalem! He is the Lion of the Tribe of Judah! He was the promised seed that would crush the serpents head in Genesis 3:15. It was he that took 39 stripes and fulfilled 39 Old Testament books from Genesis to Malachi! It would become the Eve, Angel, lion, or the Evangelion, or the Evangelism of the Gospel that we would understand why Christ had to die so we could live.”
