In the beginning, there was a perfect garden. Adam and Eve were created on the sixth day but the sixth day had not reached the end. Adam and Eve are still being created. Adam and Eve only understood love, until…
I believe, their love for one another grew. As we all can identify, when one is in love, their only desire is to be one with the other.
Their love was immature. Adam and Eve did not know how much there was to know about love. Choosing to take the fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, meant they would have to learn evil.
For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.Genesis 3:5
Making the choice to know good and evil meant they were making a choice independent of God.
Adam and Eve chose to be independent of God. They chose from ego. This choice birthed sin into the world.
Eve (the woman) is represented by the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Eve is humanity; the physical. Adam (the man) is represented by the tree of life. He is like God in Heaven; the spiritual.
Together Adam and Eve are the image of God but God is ONLY good. God is love. To know good we have to know the opposite, which means we have to know evil. We have to choose good or God.
Then the LORD God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever”—Genesis 3:22
The woman has been oppressed by the man since the beginning of time. The man who does not love God cannot love the woman. He does not see the woman. This is her curse and her blessing. The man can only see the woman if he submits his life (ego) in full submission to God. Then the man will see God in the woman.
Israel is the woman. God is trying to define Himself in “a people.” He spoke to a people, the Israelites, at Mount Sinai and gave them commandments. These commandments are boundaries for us to know what love is; like a marriage contract. There are 12 tribes of Israel.
Love requires boundaries. Boundaries are respected when people love.
Because of sin (blindness and ignorance), the tribes became dispersed into the nations. The only nation that survived are the Jews. They are Israel (in part).
The rest of the remaining tribes are the rest of us who love God and, therefore, love and see the woman.
We are Eve or the woman or God’s Bride.
For your Maker is your husband, the Lord of hosts is his name; and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer, the God of the whole earth he is called.Isaiah 54:5
The man who does not love God or the woman is operating in ego — he can only see himself. He does not love God because he only loves himself.
The man is the woman because the woman came out of the man.
We are ONE. God divided us up in opposition because everything on EARTH is in an image so we can learn love. EARTH is duality. Heaven is ONE. Adam is ONE.
The masculine is our path to understanding God or our journeys (brain). The feminine is our love for God and for one another (heart). If we are the image of God we aspire to be selflesss and only love one another. Remember: Love has boundaries that need to be respected.
One brain and one heart = One Adam
When the man and the woman love one another, love will be birthed here on earth. Our love breaks the curse from the beginning of time that blinds the man from seeing the woman.
When Jesus then saw His mother, and the disciple whom He loved standing nearby, He said to His mother, “Woman, behold, your son!” Then He said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” From that hour the disciple took her into his own household.John 19:26-27
Jesus calls his own mother “woman” but then said to his male disciple that the woman is his mother. The woman is the image of God to be represented in the man on earth. Remember: The man is the woman.
Because we are an image to ourselves!
When we love we are no longer duality — WE BECOME ONE!!
Physical becomes spiritual, Evil becomes good, Darkness becomes light, Religion becomes spirituality, Curse becomes blessing, Masculine becomes feminine... Jews and Gentiles become ONE!
The more we identify with our heart we will see God. Our brain (ego) is dominant but we need to make our heart (the feminine) dominant. We can only successfully love if we completely surrender our ego and love God. Then the space between our brain and heart is no longer disconnected but recognizes that it is ONE.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.Proverbs 3:5
Then we will be balanced to know the difference between good and evil and choose good to bring heaven here on earth. That is when God will be seen in the image of the man.
The sixth day will be completed when the man knows who he is!
