“Oh Adam, Where For Art Thou?” Part 7

Mankind was given six senses and a brain… free will and the mind…in a nut shell it all works together for good to those who love the Lord God, but, without God, it’s the devil’s playground and he plays rough and deadly!

Pondering what is what – Discernment For Dummies 101″ – an imaginary best seller with lots of interesting truths! If I were to write an intro for it, it would go something like this:

“When you read the word of God you have a reference point in your memory called a brain… your mind which is a process of thinking, feeling and deciding can call upon what is stored in your memory and use it to relate to what you are looking at and hearing and thinking about. If you’ve read the Bible you have a reference, but if you haven’t read it, you are open to believing anything someone tells you. For example if someone told you, the Book of Adam is not orthodox, so don’t read it… you would heed that. And never know what was written in it. You will not have that in your memory to recall when making a decision on it, just that someone told you not to read it.

“But, if you are one of those who decide to go ahead and read it anyway…and you have read your Bible…you just may find it cross references with key scriptures. For when we read the book of Adam, those who have read and understood many of the scriptures will automatically connect events that look familiar a “deja vu” moment, if you will. Many things will appear the same or sound the same. In so doing you create a reference that you can now double check to see if it is so. and what else can go with that. You connect the dots and discern. One thing is certain, you will see and feel spiritual warfare come alive in a way, you haven’t seen before, except possibly in your own thoughts and mind. Suddenly, many things make much more sense and you want to know more and if you are like most people, you ask…what else has been hidden?

“It is like detective work to find the clues and seek the answers if they connect, why they do, or if they are just coincidence. That is how deep digging for truth in all things work, at least for me. When you call on the Holy Spirit to guide you and show you… a world of answers open up, even without your memory banks filled…they are filled up for you and you are shown where to look next and read, see, and hear. It was my hope that presenting this book of Adam that all who read it would go on such a search. So because it is long and in these many parts… it becomes a real quest… and one I hope we can all see that it relates to us this very day and all days of our life from childhood to adulthood. For there truly is nothing new under the sun… we are just all finally waking up and seeing that. Each are at different levels of understanding and together we share and learn and grow stronger and stronger in the truth.”

That being said, we continue with “Oh Adam, Where For Art Thou?” Part 7. We left off where Adam had just won favor with God and received the Holy Spirit to teach, guide, and comfort his heart and spirit.

Adam and Eve Part 2, CHAP. LXIX.

Twelfth apparition of Satan to Adam and Eve, while Adam was praying over the offering upon the altar; when Satan smote him.

1 THEN Satan, the hater of all good, envious of Adam and of his offering through which he found favour with God, hastened and took a sharp stone from among sharp iron-stones; appeared in the form of a man, and went and stood by Adam and Eve.

2 Adam was then offering on the altar, and had begun to pray, with his hands spread unto God. 3 Then Satan hastened with the sharp iron-stone he had with him, and with it pierced Adam on the right side, when flowed blood and water, then Adam fell upon the altar like a corpse. And Satan fled. 4 Then Eve came, and took Adam and placed him below the altar. And there she stayed, weeping over him; while a stream of blood flowed from Adam’s side upon his offering.

image 35

(This is paraelle to the Christ when the Centurian pierced his side and water and blood gushed forth and Jesus was speared to make certain He was dead. And when they took down His body by order of Pilate and gave it to Nicodemis and Joseph of Arimathea and Mary Magdalene wept over him as they prepared his body with a mixture of myrrh and aloes, and wrapped him in white linen in haste before the sabbath began, for the grave. John Chapter 19. And in the other gospels and Book of Nicodemis.)

5 But God looked upon the death of Adam. He then sent His Word, and raised him up and said unto him, “Fulfil thy offering, for indeed, Adam, it is worth much, and there is no shortcoming in it.”

6 God said further unto Adam, “Thus will it also happen to Me, on the earth, when I shall be pierced and blood shall flow blood and water from My side and run over My body, which is the true offering; and which shall be offered on the altar as a perfect offering.”(There it is.)

image 31

7 Then God commanded Adam to finish his offering, and when he had ended it he worshipped before God, and praised Him for the signs He had showed him. 8 And God healed Adam in one day, which is the end of the seven weeks; and that is the fiftieth day.

9 Then Adam and Eve returned from the mountain, and went into the Cave of Treasures, as they were used to do. This completed for Adam and Eve, one hundred and forty days since their coming out of the garden. (What is the significance of this number of days?) 10 Then they both stood up that night and prayed to God. And when it was morning, they went out, and went down westward of the cave, to the place where their corn was, and there rested under the shadow of a tree, as they were wont.

11 But when there a multitude of beasts came all round them. It was Satan’s doing, in his wickedness; in order to wage war against Adam through marriage.

Adam and Eve Part 2, CHAP. LXX.

Thirteenth apparition of Satan to Adam and Eve, to make war against him, through his marriage with Eve.

1 AFTER this Satan, the hater of all good, took the form of an angel, and with him two others, so that they looked like the three angels who had brought to Adam gold, incense, and myrrh. (Impersonating the Archangels Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael.)

2 They passed before Adam and Eve while they were under the tree, and greeted Adam and Eve with fair words that were full of guile. 3 But when Adam and Eve saw their comely mien, and heard their sweet speech, Adam rose, welcomed them, and brought them to Eve, and they remained all together; Adam’s heart the while, being glad because he thought concerning them, that they were the same angels, who had brought him gold, incense, and myrrh.

4 Because, when they came to Adam the first time, there came upon him from them, peace and joy, through their bringing him good tokens; so Adam thought that they were come a second time to give him other tokens for him to rejoice withal. For he did not know it was Satan; therefore did he receive them with joy and companied with them.

5 Then Satan, the tallest of them, said, “Rejoice, O Adam, and be glad. Lo, God has sent us to thee to tell thee something.” 6 And Adam said, “What is it?” Then Satan answered, “It is a light thing, yet it is a word of God, wilt thou hear it from us and do it? But if thou hearest not, we will return to God, and tell Him that thou wouldest not receive His word.” 7 And Satan said again to Adam, “Fear not, neither let a trembling come upon thee; dost not thou know us?”

8 But Adam said, “I know you not.”

9 Then Satan said to him, “I am the angel who brought thee gold, and took it to the cave; this other one is he who brought thee incense; and that third one, is he who brought thee myrrh when thou wast on the top of the mountain, and who carried thee to the cave. 10 “But as to the other angels our fellows, who bare you to the cave, God has not sent them with us this time; for He said to us, ‘You suffice.'”

11 So when Adam heard these words he believed them, and said to these angels, “Speak the word of God, that I may receive it.” 12 And Satan said unto him “Swear, and promise me that thou wilt receive it.”

13 Then Adam said, “I know not how to swear and promise.”

14 And Satan said to him, “Hold out thy hand, and put it inside my hand.”

image 32

15 Then Adam held out his hand, and put it into Satan’s hand; when Satan said unto him, “Say, now–so true as God is living, rational, and speaking, who raised the heavens in the space, and established the earth upon the waters, and has created me out of the four elements, and out of the dust of the earth–I will not break my promise, nor renounce my word.(So Satan tricked Adam, again.)

16 And Adam swore thus.

17 Then Satan said to him, “Lo, it is now some time since thou camest out of the garden, and thou knowest neither wickedness nor evil. But now God s says to thee, to take Eve who came out of thy side, and to wed her, that she bear thee children, to comfort thee, and to drive from thee trouble and sorrow; now this thing is not difficult, neither is there any scandal in it to thee.”

Adam and Eve Part 2, CHAP. LXXI.

Adam is troubled by his wedding with Eve.

1 BUT when Adam heard these words from Satan, he sorrowed much, because of his oath and of his promise, and said, “Shall I commit adultery with my flesh and my bones, and shall I sin against myself, for God to destroy me, and to blot me out from off the face of the earth? (Ponder this… I am too.)

2 “Since, when at first, I ate of the tree, He drove me out of the garden into this strange land, and deprived me of my bright nature, and brought death upon me. If, then, I should do this, He will cut off my life from the earth, and He will cast me into hell, and will plague me there a long time.

3 “But God never spoke the words thou hast told me; and ye are not God’s angels, nor yet sent from Him. But ye are devils, come to me under the false appearance of angels . Away from me; ye cursed of God!(Adam discerned and called them out! Remember he now has the Holy Spirit. Amen!~!)

4 Then those devils fled from before Adam. And he and Eve arose, and returned to the Cave of Treasures, and went into it. (Yes!!! Adam now has authority over them through the Holy Spirit!!! And he is using it!)

5 Then Adam said to Eve, “If thou sawest what I did, tell it not; for I sinned against God in swearing by His great name, and I have placed my hand another time into that of Satan.” Eve, then, held her peace, as Adam told her.

6 Then Adam arose, and spread his hands unto God, beseeching and entreating Him with tears, to forgive him what he had done. And Adam remained thus standing and praying forty days and forty nights. He neither ate nor drank until he dropped down upon the earth from hunger and thirst.

7 Then God sent His Word unto Adam, who raised him up from where he lay, and said unto him, “O Adam, why hast thou sworn by My name, and why hast thou made agreement with Satan another time?

8 But Adam wept, and said, “O God, forgive me, for I did this unwittingly; believing they were God’s angels.

9 And God forgave Adam, saying, to him, “Beware of Satan.” 10 And He withdrew His Word from Adam.

11 Then Adam’s heart was comforted; and he took Eve, and they went out of the cave, to make some food for their bodies. 12 But from that day Adam struggled in his mind about his wedding Eve; afraid as he was to do it, lest God should be wroth with him. 13 Then Adam and Eve went to the river of water, and sat on the bank, as people do when they enjoy themselves. 14 But Satan was jealous of them; and would destroy them.

Adam and Eve Part 2, CHAP. LXXII.

Adam’s heart is set on fire.

1 THEN Satan, and ten from his hosts, transformed themselves into maidens, unlike any others in the whole world for grace.

2 They came up out of the river in presence of Adam and Eve, and they said among themselves, “Come, we will look at the faces of Adam and of Eve, who are of the men upon earth. How beautiful they are, and how different is their look from our own faces.” Then they came to Adam and Eve, and greeted them; and stood wondering at them.

3 Adam and Eve looked at them also, and wondered at their beauty, and said, “Is there, then, under us, another world, with such beautiful creatures as these in it”‘ 4 And those maidens said to Adam and Eve, “Yes, indeed, we are an abundant creation.”

5 Then Adam said to them, “But how do you multiply?” 6 And they answered him, “We have husbands who wedded us, and we bear them children, who grow up, and who in their turn wed and are wedded, and also bear children; and thus we increase. And if so be, O Adam, thou wilt not believe us, we will show thee our husbands and our children.”

7 Then they shouted over the river as if to call their husbands and their children, who came up from the river, men and children; and every one came to his wife, his children being with him.

8 But when Adam and Eve saw them, they stood dumb, and wondered at them.

9 Then they said to Adam and Eve, “You see our husbands and our children, wed Eve as we wed our wives, and you shall have children the same as we.” This was a device of Satan to deceive Adam. 10 Satan also thought within himself, “God at first commanded Adam concerning the fruit of the tree, saying to him, ‘Eat not of it; else of death thou shalt die.’ But Adam ate of it, and yet God did not kill him; He only decreed upon him death, and plagues and trials, until the day he shall come out of his body.

11 “Now, then, if I deceive him to do this thing, and to wed Eve without God’s commandment, God will kill him then.” 12 Therefore did Satan work this apparition before Adam and Eve; because he sought to kill him, and to make him disappear from off the face of the earth. 13 Meanwhile the fire of sin came upon Adam, and he thought of committing sin. But he restrained himself, fearing lest if he followed this advice of Satan God would put him to death.

14 Then Adam and Eve arose, and prayed to God, while Satan and his hosts went down into the river, in presence of Adam and Eve; to let them see that they were going back to their own regions. 15 Then Adam and Eve went back to the Cave of Treasures, as they were wont; about evening time. 16 And they both arose and prayed to God that night. Adam remained standing in prayer, yet not knowing how to pray, by reason of the thoughts of his heart regarding his wedding Eve; and he continued so until morning.

17 And when light arose, Adam said unto Eve, “Arise, let us go below the mountain, where they brought us gold, and let us ask the Lord concerning this matter.” 18 Then Eve said, “What is that matter, O Adam?” 19 And he answered her, “That I may request the Lord to inform me about wedding thee; for I will not do it without His order, lest He make us perish, thee and me. For those devils have set my heart on fire, with thoughts of what they showed us, in their sinful apparitions.” (Did they show him something sexual?)

20 Then Eve said to Adam, “Why need we go below the mountain? Let us rather stand up and pray in our cave to God, to let us know whether this counsel is good or not.” 21 Then Adam rose up in prayer and said, “O God, thou knowest that we transgressed against Thee, and from the moment we transgressed, we were bereft of our bright nature; and our body became brutish, requiring food and drink; and with animal desires.

22 “Command us, O God, not to give way to them without Thy order, lest Thou bring us to nothing. For if Thou give us not the order, we shall be overpowered, and follow that advice of Satan; and Thou wilt again make us perish. 23 “If not, then take our souls from us; let us be rid of this animal lust. And if Thou give us no order respecting this thing, then sever Eve from me, and me from her; and place us each far away from the other.

24 “Yet again, O God, when Thou hast put us asunder from each other, the devils will deceive us with their apparitions, and destroy our hearts, and defile our thoughts towards each other. Yet if it is not each of us towards the other, it will, at all events, be through their appearance when they show themselves to us.” Here Adam ended his prayer.

Adam and Eve Part 2, CHAP. LXXIII.

The betrothal of Adam and Eve.

1 THEN God looked upon the words of Adam that they were true, and that he could long await His order, respecting the counsel of Satan. 2 And God approved Adam in what he had thought concerning this, and in the prayer he had offered in His presence; and the Word of God came unto Adam and said to him, “O Adam, if only thou hadst had this caution at first, ere thou earnest out of the garden into this land!”

3 After that, God sent His angel who had brought gold, and the angel who had brought incense, and the angel who had brought myrrh to Adam, that they should inform him respecting his wedding Eve. 4 Then those angels said to Adam, “Take the gold and give it to Eve as a wedding gift, and betroth her; then give her some incense and myrrh as a present; and be ye, thou and she, one flesh.”

5 Adam hearkened to the angels, and took the gold and put it into Eve’s bosom in her garment; and bethrothed her with his hand. 6 Then the angels commanded Adam and Eve, to arise and pray forty days and forty nights; and after that, that Adam should come in to his wife; for then this would be an act pure and undefiled; and he should have children who would multiply, and replenish the face of the earth.

7 Then both Adam and Eve received the words of the angels; and the angels departed from them. 8 Then Adam and Eve began to fast and to pray, until the end of the forty days; and then they came together, as the angels had told them. And from the time Adam left the garden until he wedded Eve, were two hundred and twenty-three days, that is seven months and thirteen days. 9 Thus was Satan’s war with Adam defeated.

Adam and Eve Part 2, CHAP. LXXIV.

The birth of Cain and Luluwa. Why they received those names.

1 AND they dwelt on the earth working, in order to continue in the well-being of their bodies; and were so until the nine months of Eve’s childbearing were ended, and the time drew near when she must be delivered.

2 Then she said unto Adam, “This cave is a pure spot by reason of the signs wrought in it since we left the garden; and we shall again pray in it. It is not meet, then, that I should bring forth in it; let us rather repair to that of the sheltering rock, which Satan hurled at us, when he wished to kill us with it; but that was held up and spread as an awning over us by the command of God; and formed a cave.”

3 Then Adam removed Eve to that cave; and when the time came that she should bring forth, she travailed much. So was Adam sorry, and his heart suffered for her sake; for she was nigh unto death; that the word of God to her should be fulfilled: “In suffering shalt thou bear a child, and in sorrow shalt thou bring forth thy child.”

4 But when Adam saw the strait in which Eve was, he arose and prayed to God, and said, “O Lord, look upon me with the eye of Thy mercy, and bring her out of her distress.”

5 And God looked at His maid-servant Eve, and delivered her, and she brought forth her first-born son, and with him a daughter. 6 Then Adam rejoiced at Eve’s deliverance, and also over the children she had borne him. And Adam ministered unto Eve in the cave, until the end of eight days; when they named the son Cain, and the daughter Luluwa.

7 The meaning of Cain is “hater,” because he hated his sister in their mother’s womb; where they came out of it. Therefore did Adam name him Cain. 8 But Luluwa means “beautiful,” because she was more beautiful than her mother.

9 Then Adam and Eve waited until Cain and his sister were forty days old, when Adam said unto Eve, “We will make an offering and offer it up in behalf of the children.” 10 And Eve said, “We will make one offering for the firstborn son; and afterwards we shall make one for the daughter.”

Adam and Eve Part 2, CHAP. LXXV.

The family revisits the Cave of Treasures. Birth of Abel and Aklemia.

1 THEN Adam prepared an offering, and he and Eve offered it up for their children, and brought it to the altar they had built at first. 2 And Adam offered up the offering, and besought God to accept his offering.

3 Then God accepted Adam’s offering, and sent a light from heaven that shone upon the offering. And Adam and the son drew near to the offering, but Eve and the daughter did not approach unto it.

4 Then Adam came down from upon the altar, and they were joyful; and Adam and Eve waited until the daughter was eighty days old; then Adam prepared an offering and took it to Eve and to the children; and they went to the altar, where Adam offered it up, as he was wont, asking the Lord to accept his offering.

5 And the Lord accepted the offering of Adam and Eve. Then Adam, Eve, and the children, drew near together, and came down from the mountain, rejoicing. (Imagine the joy of Adam and Eve for their children and now a commitment to teach them on how to go in the way of God. The family unit truly is the bond that gives us joy. As well as challenges. As every family in this world has Satan waiting to corrupt it. That has not changed. Today… the very future of humanity is in peril. God is watching and he has given a covenant to all his children. God always keeps His promises to His children. Have faith and stay strong.)

6 But they returned not to the cave in which they were born; but came to the Cave of Treasures, in order that the children should go round it, and be blessed with the tokens brought from the garden. 7 But after they had been blessed with these tokens, they went back to the cave in which they were born.

8 However, before Eve had offered up the offering, Adam had taken her, and had gone with her to the river of water, in which they threw themselves at first; and there they washed themselves. Adam washed his body and Eve hers also clean, after the suffering and distress that had come upon them.

9 But Adam and Eve, after washing themselves in the river of water, returned every night to the Cave of Treasures, where they prayed and were blessed; and then went back to their cave where the children were born.

10 So did Adam and Eve until the children had done sucking. Then, when they were weaned, Adam made an offering for the souls of his children; other than the three times he made an offering for them, every week. 11 When the days of nursing the children were ended, Eve again conceived, and when her days were accomplished she brought forth another son and daughter; and they named the son Abel, and the daughter Aklia.

12 Then at the end of forty days, Adam made an offering for the son, and at the end of eighty days he made another offering for the daughter, and did by them, as he had done before by Cain and his sister Luluwa.

13 He brought them to the Cave of Treasures, where they received a blessing, and then returned to the cave where they were born. After the birth of these, Eve ceased from childbearing. (At least for a while.)

Parable of the Sower…

So Adam and Eve are now busy with their children and providing for them in a manner that pleases God. The story is continuing to unfold and we will continue it in “Oh Adam, Where For Art Thou?” Part 8.
