Part 3 of The Genetic War!

The period between the beginning and the next major event in man’s history is testament to conditions we are experiencing today. They are far from dissimilar, in fact they are even worse now than they were then. You may be surprised at just how far “gone” things were in that time but I will try and simplify it following. Remember, the beginning, and the end, is from where you can trace the threads that reveal the plot, so stay tuned!

In the original account, you find that God told man how things were going to be from the moment he ate the poison. He wasn’t lying, it was a statement of fact! Man was now going to die, but that was not all! Corruption had now entered into the creation, and EVERYTHING was going to change! It wasn’t God’s original plan or intention, but man was tricked into signing his own death warrant, and he did – he CHOSE to, and STILL DOES it seems! (Just as a matter of fact, something I won’t go into detail about here, it was quite simply pride that took him down that route – something we have been prone to all along, getting us continually into no end of trouble all along the way!)

Man immediately found out the result of disobedience, even before God was going to advise him on his future as a result of it! The very first thing he experienced was fear, as a result of shame, and his shame was not because he was naked! We “cover up” because we are afraid to be seen “unvarnished” in truth, we are hiding something! Like the modern saying, if you have nothing to hide what are you afraid of, if you have done nothing wrong? What is it we usually try to hide? – Error! (And we try to hide it because of our pride, we don’t want people to see what we are really like, how we really are, right?) Anyway…

In his original state man was all good, just like everything else! He didn’t KNOW anything else! He was free, life was easy, he had everything he needed, and he was going to live forever, enjoying it all! Who doesn’t want that? Well, Lucifer didn’t want that for one thing, and his plan was to screw up the works just as quick as he could, and it looks like he has been succeeding ever since, with a lot of help from us!

The first man did the first “cover up”, and he was afraid! Of what? Two things! – First, when God went looking for him (and found him of course – He knew where he was) man told Him he was afraid of Him! Imagine! But man also knew something else – he had already been told that if he ate the fruit of the knowledge of good AND EVIL that he would “surely” (certainly) die! (i.e. There was no doubt or error in that statement, and it was not retractable, it was an absolute reaction to an action – you eat poison, you die). Man knew he had done the wrong thing, and the result was that now he was afraid, afraid of the One who made him, Who was Love, the One he was used to walking with every day. Fear now replaced love in man’s mind, and now he expected God to be an “executioner”, the very opposite of what God is! He expected God to do the killing! But that is not what God had said, nor intended, nor did He even have a plan to carry out Himself! For one thing He didn’t need to, and He certainly didn’t want to! (Can you imagine how heart-broken He must have felt to see man basically commit suicide!?) You see, already man had now been separated from God and had “lost the plot” – he no longer knew Him, because now he knew evil! (God was already missing that time together with man from that first moment, and He has been trying to get us back to Him and Heaven on Earth and Hereafter ever since! But that’s a long story – about six thousand years so far actually!)

To prove the point, later, when another man killed his brother (in anger, out of jealousy, due to pride), that man also was very afraid! When questioned on his actions it wasn’t God he was afraid of, inasmuch as he knew God wasn’t an executioner. He was afraid of his fellow man, because he knew very well what man was like now (like himself is what he expected). So God made it very clear to everyone who he was, what he had done, and that no-one was to take justice into their own hands and harm him. In other words, man was not to be his judge and executioner either, and God was trying to stop the killing right there!

Man was in his “infancy” and was meant to “be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the Earth”. But the rot had started with the very first man, the seed was sown for his destruction, and God was trying to stave it off, as long as He could! It is as simple as that! However…

Back to the first man and the beginning…

Man’s home had the seed of corruption sown in it, so he had to leave! There were consequences to what had happened, and they were explained to man. He was going to die, eventually. That was not all however – all of creation was now going to change. No more “easy” life was possible. Man was going to have to work for it now, and so was woman. Even with no Eden to enjoy though the Earth was very different to how we know it now! Basically the whole planet was one giant terrarium! Vegetation, animals, people, everything grew bigger, and lived for longer! (This is why you can find dinosaur skeletons today – basically just overgrown lizards, as even reptiles today will keep growing for as long as they live. Oh, and all of creation was vegetarian – no carnivores! T-Rex had long sharp teeth to strip bark, not eat other creatures, besides the fact that his arms were too short for fighting anyway, but that is another story). Even though man had made a huge mistake, with dire consequences, man did not hunt animals, and they weren’t afraid of him. All man needed to do was plant and grow crops for his sustenance. He could use skins from creatures that had died if he wanted to, and he could make shelter if needed, however there were no extreme weather conditions like we have today. It was temperate and mild, luxuriant, and no geographical extremes either! Still a whole lot more “easy living” than we are used to today! Thus man still had a life-span of centuries! Not bad huh? But…
