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!!
