Eyes Closed,Again

I am going to piggy back off of the last two blogs because of the subject matter.

This one is still about the eyes, but also what it does when they are closed.

They say that when you lose one of your senses, on purpose or not, it heightens the rest of them. I believe it. Like I was eluding to in the last blog, by having our eyes shut by God’s design, and not ‘seeing’ what Good and Evil was, we were being sparred by God in knowing the heartache and turmoil it would bring.

I believe that this ‘knowledge’ can only be seen when our minds are free and clear of all other things of mankind, especially in christianity. Let me explain, our minds, especially in the christian circles of our separate denominations, need to be freed from this kind of separation and divisive thoughts. We need to just plainly start over,period. Clean the slate. Start at the beginning.

This ability to ‘see’ with our eyes closed will heighten our ‘knowing’ in what God is trying to show and tell us. Leaving behind all the other stuff of our traditions, commandments, laws, programs, preachers, rituals, daily methods, likes, the way it always was done, the church, the pastor, the leader, the whatever has got to be forgotten, and be of a empty mind. If the cup is full, nothing new and righteous cannot be poured in!!

Romans 12.2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

This is when we will be able to ‘see’ and ‘know’ what God is speaking to us. Mankind and christianity has been inundated with all kinds of belief, that they overlap, so different, or are just crazy to put into words. We as God’s creation need to see what God’s blueprint from his original plan for his world,his people, and their God was for.

We have a big clue in the first two chapters of his story. Read it it 4-5 times. Read it just to read it, then read it going in to see what God is trying to do with his creation, his world. Ask questions. Try to answer them. Genesis is Act 1 of the story, if we don’t get it right, the rest of the story really doesn’t make since, does it?

Maybe that’s the problem!!

Eyes Closed

To expound on the last blog, we will uncover something amazing and earth shattering in the first few chapters of Genesis.

As I have said before in various blogs, I sometimes will do a ‘negative’ or opposite contrast view of something said in the scriptures to see where this leads me. This one has led me again to another Great insight of God. Let me read you the verse to show you what I am talking about.

It is Genesis 3.5: “For God knows that on the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will become like God, knowing good and evil.”

Now look at the bold part of the verse, your eyes will be opened. What would be the opposite of this? For their eyes to be closed. Now the verse is saying that God wants us to have closed eyes. But Why?

First, why would God want us to know what is Good and Evil? Second, and most importantly if our eyes are closed, means we are walking in Faith with God in the Garden!

Now, go forward into the Word, the new covenant, what is the message that is being idealized?

Yes that’s right! Faith in God! The Gospel was in the very beginning of Time and we didn’t even ‘see’ it!

A Big LOL.

Just as a side note, carry this thought throughout the rest of the bible when you read it on things that bring up this concept of ‘eyes open or shut’! It will clear some things up for you!!

May your eyes be shut from now on!!
