Long before we today were here on Earth in the physical, the original man made of red earth, named Adam, became out of sync with his creator, out of sync with the ways set up for things to function for good for him and all mankind and thus,.his missing the mark applied to us as soon as we were conceived:.1Corinthians 15:21,22 "For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive." Romans 8:20 "For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who has subjected the same in hope." Ephesians 4:4 "There is one body and one Spirit, even as you are called in one hope of your calling." Hebrews 6:18,19 "...we might have a strong consolation who have fled for refuge.(where to? where from?).to lay hold upon the hope set before us, which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast..." Colossians 1:27 "To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles.(and who are they?), which is Christ in you, the hope of glory."

God made a partner for Adam. She was named Eve:.Genesis 2:21,22. Adam and Eve became the first parents. The separation that occured between them.(Genesis 3:7).carried over to their children; one was good, one was not; their names were Abel and Cain. And so we have the contrast existing right up to today, where there are the problems that crop up between all those who see a separation from others in life.(*).

Adam and Eve, before being sent out of their wonderful living in a garden, with all provided for them by the garden's abundance and beauty, were destined to forever live. But they cut themselves out of that:.Genesis 3:19. And so they had to leave the area:.Genesis 3:22.

The consciousness mankind was to live from in history following him was set by Adam. This has become known as man's ordinary consciousness, an invisible but very real consciousness that is both contributed into and drawn from by all mankind, a consciousness that is subject so easily by being pumped by the dark side.

It wasn't because of not being able to keep the Old Testament Mosaic law that made people unrighteous. They already were unrighteous and no thanks to Adam for getting the ball rolling on this thing called sin and there was no way anyone could be made righteous by keeping the Mosaic Law:.Acts 13:39 "...you could not be justified by the law of Moses.(or any part or parts of it:.Galatians 5:3; James 2:10; 2Chronicles 33:8)."

Keeping the Mosaic Law perfectly.(which no one back then could or wanted to {Jeremiah 11:7,8}, why?.Jeremiah 44:16,17).could not make atonement for any unrighteousness in anyone of mankind toward the righteousness that could only come later through Christ. 

The Mosaic Law is also referred to as the law of Moses because it was Moses who got it from God.(Ezra 7:6).and delivered it to the people back then:.Exodus 34:27-32. The Mosaic Law simply showed that rules and regulations.(of which there were way too many).could do nothing toward attaining the righteousness that could only come through Christ in us; that is, Christ's righteousness in us.

Romans 5:12-14 "Wherefore, as by one man.(Adam typifies.the ego all mankind has which separates one from spiritual pathways).sin entered into the world and death by sin and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.(in or because of Adam, as the next verse shows). For until the law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law. Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression.(the reason it says that."death reigned from Adam till Moses".is because in Moses time there was provision for forgiveness of sin under the Old Testament Mosaic Law, but only a yearly atoning for sin which looked forward to that ultimate sacrifice of Christ, which would do away with all sin, once and for ever, yet people still physically die; death to God is moving into an, invisible to us, dimension:.Matthew 22:32; later there will a resurrection, a renewal; to us familiar with life as it is, we believe in death of the physical; to God there really is no death, as He is eternal, as we are too {which is our spirits and what we are below the atom}), who is the figure of him that was to come.

Romans 5:15 "But not as the offence, so also is the free gift.(sin and death came by one and righteousness and life came by one). For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God and the.gift by grace,.(which is because of His righteousness).which is by one man, Emmanuel the Christ, has abounded unto many. 

Romans 5:16 And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift.(or, the free gift came not by one that had sinned {meaning Christ as compared to Adam}, so also is the gift, that is, the gift of righteousness came by one {Christ} and applied not just to one sin {Adam's}, but to all sin for all time). For the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences.(how many?).unto justification.

Romans 5:17-19 For if by one man's offence death reigned by one, much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall.reign in life.(this life here and now).by one, Emmanuel the Christ. Therefore as by the offence of one, judgment came upon all men to condemnation, even so by the righteousness of one the free gift.(the free gift of righteousness).came upon all men unto justification of life. For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners.(how?), so by the obedience of one shall.(word 'shall', not in original).many.(how many?).be made righteous."

Galatians 3:22 "But the scripture has concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Emmanuel the Christ might be given to them that believe."

Adam was the first man and like all mankind since, had a spirit.(what is spirit?).added to him that enabled him to comprehend human things such as we all are able to that animals cannot:.Zechariah 12:1. This spirit in man is an ordinary consciousness or lower consciousness spirit, as showed by the Creator offering Adam the tree of life twice where he could have freely had the same consciousness as the Creator, a higher consciousness. The ordinary consciousness of man is a 'death' consciousness, a death trap as it were.

"Every human being has an attendant spirit and wise are
they who obey its signals. If it does not always tell us what
to do, it always cautions us what not to do.(Matthew 22:37-40)."....Lydia M. Child, abolitionist.(against all forms of slavery), activist, 1802-1880.

It's because of this spirit in man that he is able to choose. He is not an automaton. God made us with free will.

Adam used his free will, if he even knew himself well enough to know what free will was, and was duped! He was duped by the master duper. Adam was made in the image of God:.Genesis 1:27 "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.".Adam forgot this, I guess. Maybe Adam just never thought about how God made him and Eve in God's image. Anyhow, it somehow just didn't 'ring true' for him or he may have had a short memory or didn't care much one way or the other. So, what does he do? He listens to Eve after she was influenced by the dark side being we call the devil. And what was told to her:.Genesis 3:5 "For God does know that in the day you eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened and you shall be as gods, knowing good and evil."

What was his approach? God knows something that you don't know, something that is holding you back from your full potential and that's the way God wants it for you; He's actually holding you down so you don't progress in the full knowledge you need to reach the level He's at. I guess Adam's eyes weren't open to the fact that he was already 'as gods', for he was created in God's image, but perhaps the 'knowing good and evil' stuff, wherein lies the contrasts of life, was somehow enticing to him. And perhaps Adam never talked with Eve about them both being made in the image of God. Then she would at least have had a 'heads up' on it, who knows!

And, many of us today are kinda like Adam was, in that we just are not aware of our true status with God now that Christ is on the scene. We are here to awaken to that. The ultimate has been achieved for us by Christ and if in Christ, you're there!

"The last Adam.(1Corinthians 15:45), Christ, was tempted in a similar manner to the first with the words from the devil "If you are the Son of Godů" Christ refused the temptation to do something Godlike to prove his "sonship". He, the Last Adam, defeated what felled the first."....Mike Williams.

This invisible spirit in us also is mankind's connection to the universal invisible cosmic field, the universal consciousness, the Soul of all, that we commonly refer to as God or the Creator or the Infinite Intelligent Energy. But, one needs to want to tune in to it.

This spirit in man provided a great gap between man and the animals: 1Corinthians 2:11 "For what man knows the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? Even so the things of God knows no man, but the Spirit of God.".So, here it is showing another spirit and one of a higher consciousness. This takes us into the world of the spirit of love, the world of the invisible Infinite One, the world one can be in through meditation, prayer and contemplation of spiritual things, through going inward. This is where the spirit of life is.

Isaiah 42:5 "Thus says God the LORD, he that created the heavens and stretched them out, he that spread forth the earth and that which comes out of it, he that gives breath unto the people upon it and spirit to them that walk therein."

What went wrong? The first man Adam had it all. He had.a woman designed by the Great Designer.(Genesis 2:18), a lush garden paradise to live in.(Genesis 2:8-15), an interesting job.(Genesis 2:15,19), no problem with lack of food.(Genesis 2:9), no neighbours.(yet).that were jealous of him, etc.

But death came upon him and all of us born after him: 1Corinthians 15:22. The original sin was not sex. The original sin was guilt. Adam and Eve wanted independence from their Creator. That's why they disregarded what the Creator told them about which tree not to touch. Adam and Eve were no longer friends with their creator. They disrespected their creator and felt that they could 'go it on their own'. 

Adam's sin brought death to mankind and Emmanuel's death brought life back to mankind:.Genesis 3:1-6. In this Adam lost the favor of God and communion with him. This act brought in a whole new nature, that of low consciousness which is a mind that doesn't believe God.

Contrariwise, life eternal became available for us through Emmanuel Christ

So what really was Adam's error? Apart from his partner Eve, the only other person on Earth then, Adam had no one to hate and hurt, no reason to overdo alcohol consumption, such as people often do to escape from a life affecting them negatively. Adam had no drugs and no reason to take them if he even knew of the strange effects some plants produce, no cigarettes or cigars, no money around to embezzle and none other yet around that he could take selfish advantage of.

Did he stuff himself like a pig? No, they had the best food that was both nutritious and satisfying:.Genesis 2:9. He had no reason to escape from stress by gaining comfort through overeating. He obviously had need of Eve:.Genesis 2:18.

Adam had a good and growing relationship with his creator. This is evidenced by the time they were walking in the garden and how he and Eve reacted when they heard God's voice:.Genesis 3:8-13. Adam here, in trying to protect his relationship with God, throws his relationship with Eve out the window; see verse 12.

Creator loved Adam and wanted the relationship to continue and grow. In relationships we have choices. But Adam chose for Adam, motivated no doubt, by a desire to please his waywardly inclined woman. Adam's choice brought heartache. This choosing a way apart from trusting what Creator-God had told him was for his good, changed Adam's life for the worse:.1Corinthians 15:22.

Adam had it all and blew it with a little, but effective, push from the dark side:.Genesis 3:1-5. Adam thought, like the thinking of many today, surfacely, that is, not really thinking to convince himself. And like many today, they accept without much thought on things. Take vaccinations. Some are all for them and others against. How deeply one reflects upon each side of the information available is a question only each person can answer for themselves.

Like Adam, who trusted the easy way the dark side was presenting to him, acted upon that information, albeit without dedicating himself deep thought before making a decision.

Earlier Adam concurred with his partner Eve regarding the importance of having knowledge they became convinced the lack of would be a hindrance to total fulfillment:.Genesis 2:9. They wanted more than just living in the present, not trusting that they were on the road to a continuing interesting life.

Adam and Eve became persuaded they had the right to what eating the tree's produce would provide. They saw that they were capable of independence. They were independent in their thinking.

Adam probably reasoned 'I know the Infinite One and what I've learned from Him and now I'm looking to know more; I now want to know the answers from what is all around me'.

And that's how Adam found out about the knowledge of good.and.evil through experience and without even knowing anything about this thing called intuition.

'I'll now be wiser and more enlightened, because I'll know both and then have a greater mental outlook about which way to proceed with.my.life.' This way he could be in control.

The meaning of things.(even sin).is dependent on its outset connotation. For example, how could one identify sin without understanding the original event from which sin's meaning became known?

Adam missed the mark of love with his Creator, love here meaning a rapport, a rapport with the Great Infinite One. Adam stepped outside of what he knew the Creator expected in His relationship with him. This was his error. And Adam carried on with his life as guided, not by the Creator, but by his ego consciousness that he had decided to be his guide in life.

But what does all this mean? He broke the rapport that had been developing with this Great Being. He broke the relationship. He knew he did wrong and tried to hide himself and the problem from the Creator.(Genesis 3:8-13).so that his position would be maintained even though he decided to follow his own way. He feared God would cause him loss and no one wants loss. He felt guilty. He no longer walked and talked with the Creator, but rather, stayed away as much as he could:.Genesis 3:9.

But, how did he come to be in this state of no rapport anymore, this state we have called Adam's sin, the sin that has been passed on to all mankind and what exactly did he do to break this rapport. 

Well, it's the same thing we do every day.(good video at this link I think you will like).when we look outside of ourselves for guidance, when we look to the advice of others while neglecting our own contact and guidance from the Infinite One that is inside us, thus leaving off contact with this Great Intelligent Energy Field, we often refer to as God. Meditation and the easy to do other 3 disciplines get and keep you in contact with your Creator.

Today we need guidance:.Isaiah chapter 1; Ezekiel 14:3-23.

John 14:6 "Emmanuel said unto him, I am the way the truth and the life. No man comes unto the Father, but by me." John 15:5 "I am the vine, you are the branches. He that abides in me and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit.(what fruit?), for without me you can do nothing."

In Christ we get guidance. The whole world is off kilter.(*). We ask this Great invisible Infinite One about all we feel we need to. That's what children do. They ask. And, we are the Creator's children.

Ask Him for help about anything until we learn, thereby becoming more like Him in all ways. Just as we grow to trust our parents and what they have taught us, there is also no other way in existence at any level but the way of love. All else is a con job by the dark side to make us think something that is untrue:.John 10:8,9; 6:51; Acts 4:12; 15:11; Romans 5:9; Hebrews 5:9; 9:28.

Adam could not get rid of his sins as the Old Testament Mosaic Law had not yet been put into effect.(Romans 5:14).and of course it was long before the time Emmanuel came to remove all sin for all time:.Job 31:33.

So, in any relationship we should be sure to have more wisdom.(what is wisdom).than Adam and consider both the little and big threats to the relationship so as to avoid them. But don't be too hard on Adam. He had no history to look to. None others but the Creator to talk to and Adam avoided Him. Adam was the first; no one else was around to consider consequences of their actions.

Just as the children we reproduce are so different, so it is with the Creator. He wants individuals, not automatons.

The Everliving Consciousness we commonly refer to as the Creator or God, placed a spirit in man to begin this process.(Romans 8:16 "The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God.".How?).

If you have the Spirit of high consciousness of the Creator in you, you are a child of the Creator. If you don't, you are still a potential spiritual child of the Creator, but for now are the Creator's physical child.

First the comprehension, observance, interaction and evaluation of ourselves and our surroundings which leads us to tie our identities to externals. Then comes the spiritual if the Creator is working spiritually with you, or, working on you:.1Corinthians 15:45-50 "And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul. The last Adam was made a quickening spirit. Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural and afterward that which is spiritual. The first man is of the earth, earthy. The second man is the Lord from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy. And as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, neither does corruption inherit incorruption."

Adam was the one through whom sin and death was passed on to all of us who are still mostly physical and not yet living fully in the Creator's invisible realm, mostly called the kingdom of God or kingdom of heaven.(again, 1Corinthians 15:21 "For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead").and through being in what we call Emmanuel the Christ, life forever.

The resurrection of all those dead depends on Christ. Adam died; we're all dead. Emmanuel resurrected; we're all as good as resurrected:.Ephesians 2:5 "Even when we were dead in sins, has quickened us together with Christ. By grace you are saved." 1Corinthians 15:55 "O death, where is your sting? O grave, where is your victory?"

Adam's story begins in Genesis


The Earth was created for people:.Genesis 1:28 "And God blessed them and God said unto them, Be fruitful and multiply and replenish.(original means 'fill up').the earth and subdue it.(or, take control of it).and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the fowl of the air and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth." Isaiah 45:18 "For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens, God himself that formed the earth and made it. He hath established it, he created it not in vain. He formed it to be inhabited; I am the LORD and there is none else".

He set it all up so they could populate it. The physical creation was planned by Creator to begin the process of Him reproducing Himself in us, but not as clones.

From.David Guzik's Commentary:."When God created the Earth, He quite likely built an 'old' Earth, as He also built Adam and Eve full grown mature people. There was age 'built in' to them. God had created things in the midst of a time sequence, with age 'built into' them. Likewise, the trees in the garden of Eden had rings in them and there were undoubtedly canyons and sand beaches in Adam's world." 

The.Bible.says plainly that death upon humans came by Adam:.Romans 5:12. Since fossils are the result of death, they could have happened before Adam's time of about 6000 years ago.
