God And The Devil

If you want to know the true intentions of God and the devil as they apply to mankind as a whole then listen to this.

The devil's agenda for tricking Adam and Eve into eating the wrong fruit and thus rebelling against God, was so he could be like the most high GOD himself.

The devil (Lucifer) cleverly devised his plan to be like God by tricking Adam and Eve into eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil instead of The tree of Life.

This made him the spiritual opposition to God Himself and total opposite in representing and controlling all that is evil, like God represents and controls all that is good, thus in a since being like the most high GOD.

Isaiah 14:12-14 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thy heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

He also wants to trick as many of us as possible into sinning and not trusting in God by any means necessary just like he deceived Adam and Eve.

The tree of the knowledge of good and evil represents worldly achievements (the way of death) since the devil promised eve they would be as gods. Likewise the tree of life represents eternal life which is a gift only God has the power to offer.

There were two paths, and only two. The tree of eternal Life (of which Adam and eve could have clearly and freely eaten from with Gods blessing) or the path that leads to death, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil which God forbid them from eating from.

The minute Adam and Eve choice to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (the path that leads to death) our free will was established in this area.

This free will consists of the ability to make a choice whether it be good or evil, right or wrong, prosperous or wasteful and done of your own accord.

Genesis 3:22 And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:

What does it mean to have free will?

To have free will at least two conditions must exist.

We must have two or more possibilities genuinely open to us when we face a choice. Our choice must not be forced.

God is omniscient or all-knowing and infinitely wise, i.e. God knows everything about the past, the present, and the future. In addition, God has given human beings free will so that human beings can choose between good and evil.

The fact is that everybody is the same when they are born, having known nothing about the world. However, the problem is that when we babies grow up their are people and environments surrounding us, that influence our make-up. How do you think people learn to commit crimes and sell drugs? Always remember that it is the devil, either threw direct influence (demons manipulating your thoughts) or threw the influence of others who are being manipulated by demons themselves.

Sin is passed down to all of us from the father of the flesh and his disobedient and proud spirit. That's why it is far more harder to do the right thing over the wrong thing because your mind is your worst enemy.

You may sometimes imagine a scenario that seems like a good outcome from a wrong decision, only to find out later what a terrible mistake you've made.

What happens in most cases is demons hide themselves within our minds making us take on their personality while leading us to believe that it is actually our personality. Our thoughts are not always our own.

You can defeat this kind of attack by resisting sin and choosing the (always harder) right thing over the wrong thing threw your free will. By doing this you are putting on the Armour of God and He will protect you.

Ephesians 6. 12-13 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole Armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

There are only two paths, the two basic choices in every decision we make in our everyday lives: good or evil and right or wrong. Upon which are you walking?
