On getting GOD's LAW right

 Hebrews 4:12

King James Version

12 For the word of God is quick, 

and powerful, 

and sharper than any twoedged sword, 

piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, 

and of the joints and marrow, 

and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.


What an amazing thing SPIRIT led me to yesterday.

Of how man gets the WORD of GOD wrong, right from the start.

And of how the enemy twists everything, to serve his purpose.

A striking example was given by Irish preacher, Keith Malcomson, in the case of Eve.

The example was so striking, for he was the only one who pointed it out, as far as I know.

Others would say it differently, but GOD is in the DETAILS.

GOD commanded Adam:

Genesis 2:15-17

King James Version

15 And the Lord God took the man, 

and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, 

Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, 

thou shalt not eat of it: 

for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.


Until Eve was left alone to fend for herself one day.

Genesis 3:1

King James Version

3 Now 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?


To which, Eve replied:

Genesis 3:2

King James Version

2 And the woman said unto the serpent, 

We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:


Further:

Genesis 3:3

King James Version

3 But 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.


"Touch it"?

Did GOD say that?

Now, you'll probably reason:

How can you eat it, unless you TOUCH it?

The debate can go on and on.

People can even write volumes on it.

And never come to an agreement.

Still the WORD of the LORD stands.

Let's go back to what He told Adam:

Genesis 2:17

King James Version

17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, 

thou shalt not eat of it

for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.


Proud, rebellious man, being mired in intellect and philosophy, can debate all he wants, starting with those verses.

But GOD's law stands.

It is simple.

An attentive child could get it.

Adam and Eve were NOT supposed to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

For they shall surely die.

GOD's LAWS are pure, perfect, and precise.

Lost in translation?

Nah.

We don't know better.

Satan thinks he does.

He knows the Bible.

But his agenda is confusion.

GOD's is clarity.

And consequently, peace.

1 Corinthians 14:33

King James Version

33 For God is not the author of confusion, 

but of peace, 

as in all churches of the saints.


Beware of the serpent.

Beware who you listen to.

Beware your interpretation.

RELY on the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD to TEACH you.

And that can only happen, if you're born of the SPIRIT.

GOD's WORD is pure, perfect, and precise.

We must get it right.
