First they played the telephone game – then they played the blame game. Just like what is happening right now in our world!
We can learn so much about the world today just by reading the first book in the Bible. “The Fall of Mankind”.
God tells Adam not to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil or he will surely die. Satan then twists Gods words and tells Eve in an attempt to trick her. Eve then adds to what Satan said and they don’t know what is truth. They sin, we are out of right relationship with God, the world begins to deteriorate including the human body. And we need Jesus to resolve this.
First lesson: If you want the truth, you must get it directly from God’s word. Eve didn’t know the truth because she didn’t hear God’s word first hand and Satan is a liar and a thief. And he is alive and still at work today. The telephone game doesn’t work! Do not trust everyone else’s interpretations.
Second lesson: Pay attention and be on guard for how Satan works. Satan is deceitful and he is a liar. He first tempted Eve through her appetite, then with lust as she looked at how beautiful the fruit was, then followed with tempting her with pride of wisdom for selfish personal gain.
We’ve seen this approach of Satan’s also with Jesus. Satan tempted Jesus in the desert with his hunger for food, then he tempted him with emotional desire to influence God to save him from his upcoming suffering on the cross, and then again he tempted him with pride to rule the world without suffering on the cross. This would have foiled Gods plan for all humanity. Thank God that Jesus is perfect and defeated Satans tempting. Gods plan is perfect too, when we put our trust in him, what Jesus accomplished on that cross enables us to be in a right relationship with God once more – if we individually choose to repent of our sins and follow Jesus. That doesn’t mean that we won’t encounter Satan or sin, but the blood of Jesus covers all our sins – once and for all!
Next they played the blame game. Eve blamed Satan and Adam blamed Eve. I feel that this is what is going on in the world today. We are all drowning in a sea of lies and blaming everyone else for our current situations and circumstances. Right and Left. Satan twists the truth for some and then uses them to twist the truth to others using the same techniques as the Bible has already shown us.
Let’s stop the blame game and let’s stop arguing over what is truth and what is not!
Go the the Bible. The Holy Word of God to find God’s righteous truth. Our perception of truth doesn’t matter, you see — Gods standards are different than the worlds standards.
The Bible tell us that God raises Kings and brings Kings down. So let’s open up our Bibles, repent and seek forgiveness with a restored relationship with our creator God, pray for God’s wisdom through His word, and then go vote! And trust that God keeps His promises. He will sustain all his creation! Which includes the universe he created (the universe does not sustain itself nor does mother nature even exist!) and all life, mankind and women kind (as God specifically created both male and female), creatures, birds, everything that exists God created! God loves all His creation and we can trust that God will sustain it! Trust! Then relax, breathe, have peace, and watch in anticipation what God will do in keeping all his promises. God loves you and desires to be in relationship with you. Trust him and he will unveil your eyes to the truth and teach you in your daily walk with him!
