The tree... of the knowledge... of good... and evil...

When they ate the fruit, then they hid themselves from God. They explained "we were naked" So! They hid from God.

What was this "tree" that God said if you eat of it's fruit you will surely die?

A tree of the "knowledge of Good and evil"?

The enemy of our soul said eat.

Satan said eat. Then promised, they would be able to discern good from evil...

Remember he is a liar.

Their first "observation" was "they are naked" and when God came, they ran and hid themselves. It was because they decided being naked was evil. But God sought them out? I am reminded of...

Proverbs 3:5-8 Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. 6 Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. 7 Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the Lord and turn away from evil. 8 Then you will have healing for your body and strength for your bones.

And these verses from James 3:16-18

16 For wherever jealousy and rivalry exist, there is disorder and every kind of evil.
17 However, the wisdom that comes from above is first of all pure, then peace-loving, gentle, willing to yield, full of compassion and good deeds, and without a trace of partiality or hypocrisy. 18 And a harvest of righteousness is grown from the seed of peace planted by peacemakers.

Annihilation? it's the second biggest Promise.

What do I mean? A promise is always about your future. Fundamentally there are two, oh crap, well there are more, but I want to focus on the only one that is true, and the other that most people are relying on. 

The promise of annihilation is what most people put their hope in. The idea that no matter what happens or goes on, in the end my life goes up in a puff of smoke where I exist no more.

But the true promise of our ultimate future gives us a choice for where we end up. We can choose life in eternal relationship with God or eternal separation from Him.

All the others promises about your ultimate future are lies. They are based in religion. I define religion simply as "A pursuit or interest to which someone ascribes supreme importance."

Taste... and SEE!

Experience and understand.

Lord rest upon me and may your presence (Face) shine and be experienced and recognized in their lives.

I don't want to know Him so that He'll use me. I want to know Him, to know Him! So that He knows me!

Taste and see? Have I tasted, do I see?

Have I tasted God's love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control as He dealt with me in meekness? YES!

Do I see His character flow through me authenticly? Not outwardly doing kind things but inwardly actually being kind.

It's easy to "do", it's much harder to "be". Only by your Grace Lord.
