Slide1:  1 Slide2:  2 WHY DID ADAM NAME THE ANIMALS AND BIRDS? Gen. 2:19 And out of the GROUND the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought [them] unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that [was] the name thereof. What really happened here? Is this important for us to know? Didn’t the same Creator who gave names to all the stars, know how to name all the animals that He formed? Is this just a Hebrew “fairy tale” — something to amuse the children, or is this something that has been missing in all our efforts to understand the beginnings of things? First of all it is important to note that God had ALREADY created the natural beasts and fowls, etc. in.... Gen. 1:24 And God said, Let the EARTH bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the EARTH after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the EARTH after his kind: and God saw that [it was] good. Note also, that God gave the earth a job to do. This “earth” is the Hebrew word: Ur$a$ - “Ehretz” - Strong’s word number 776. It is a completely different word than the “ground” the animals were formed from in 2:19. That word in Hebrew is: hm+d+a~- -“Adamah” - Strong’s word number 127. Adam was created on the same day as God created the living creatures and cattle, etc. But, Adam was created AFTER they were. The creatures were created out of the EHRETZ, but Adam was not! Adam, himself, was created out of the ADAMAH! Adam came from a different source than the natural animals! Thank God that our King James Version makes the two different words in Hebrew two different words in English as well: “earth” and “ground”. Natural creatures were made out of the earth, but Adam was formed out of the dust of the ground. God called his name Adam because he was taken out of the adamah. It’s simple, when we know it. (hm+d+a~-, Adamah, and md+a+, Adam) Now, let’s go back to the setting of Genesis 2:19, where God brought these animals to Adam to receive their names, and take a look at the preceding verse. THE FIRST THING THAT WAS NOT GOOD? Gen. 2:18 And the LORD God said, [It is] NOT GOOD that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. Adam being alone is the first “NOT good” thing that we have recorded in scripture. God said that everything He had made up to this Slide3:  3 point was “good”. How was Adam “alone”? God was visiting him in the garden! it is possible that angels may have stopped in now and then, and the natural creatures were all around him! So how was he “alone”? So when God said it was NOT GOOD that the man should be alone, he meant ON HIS HUMAN LEVEL. Adam was created a little lower than the heavenly angels, but over all the natural creation. He was lonely - he had no equals on his horizontal level. Compare this with Jesus’ statement in... John 8:29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath NOT left me alone; for I do always those things that please him. Jesus was surrounded by humans and animals, yet he considered himself “alone” without the Father. Interesting, isn’t it? A HELP MEET? Now, immediately after God said He would make a “help meet” for Adam in 2:18, and 19, the naming of the animals takes place, and it concludes by God saying there was no help meet found for Adam..... Gen. 2:19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought [them] unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that [was] the name thereof. 20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. Does this mean that God wanted Adam to find a wife from among these creatures? Of course not. But why did He say that then? TWO KINDS OF “CREATURES” Let’s take a CLOSER look at these “beasts” and “fowls” that God brought to Adam to receive their names. First of all, they are DIFFERENT than the natural EHRETZ creatures that God had already created. THESE creatures were “formed”, NOT created, and came NOT from the “ehretz/earth”, but from the ADAMAH — from the same “adamah/ground” that Adam did. Adam and his future wife were meant to have dominion over the natural creatures. That is why God created natural bodies for Adam and Eve, so they could develop compassion and understanding (and by that, be “formed” inside as well.) Adam’s natural body was subject to hot and cold, night and day, hunger, etc. — just like the natural “ehretz” creatures themselves. In fact, the first recorded conversation in scripture between God and man was about food. God created Adam with an “empty belly”, and their first conversation was about what he could put in it and what he was to avoid putting in it. Slide4:  4 It doesn’t take too much imagination to apply the same example of an “empty belly” to an “empty mind”. After all, beside the natural food trees in the garden, God ALSO placed two other “trees” there. TWO “TREES” DIFFERENT THAN THE OTHERS! One of these “trees” was KNOWLEDGE and the other was LIFE, or WISDOM (Pro. 3:13-18). In God’s perfect plan, wisdom comes FIRST, and knowledge AFTER (Pro. 3:19,20; 4:7; 24:3,4). In man’s fallen mind, KNOWLEDGE comes first, and he hopes it will eventually distill into wisdom. It does, but it is NEVER the wisdom “from above” (James 3:15). Adam was created with a brain, but his mind had not yet been formed. It was a mind that was made to be filled with knowledge about God’s divine nature compared to all lesser natures. To live forever, Adam was told not to try filling his mind by himself, but to be taught by Jesus, God’s Son. Jesus, Himself is the Tree of Life. He is God’s Wisdom to us (1 Cor. 1:30,31; John 14:6; John 15:5) Adam’s body came out of the ground, but God wanted Adam’s mind to come out of heaven. This is why God sent Adam to school. His mind was about to be trained by the Holy Ghost on how to have Holy Ghost dominion over all the lesser creatures in God’s order. ADAM’S GRADE SCHOOL Adam’s loneliness made him even more sensitive in the Holy Ghost, so when God brought the ADAMAH creatures before Adam, he saw them through Holy Ghost eyes. God may have used a natural animal to jump-start the process, but that is not what is important. The important thing is WHERE Adam got all the names. It wasn’t even important what the SOUND of the words were -- whether Adam spoke Hebrew, Greek, French or English.... it was Adam’s perception -- his identification that was important. THAT was what God was watching. Let me insert an illustration about naming things: A man buys two identical dolls and gives them to two little girls. Then he asks them both what they are naming their dolls. The first little girl hugs her doll close, rocking back and forth and says... “Her name is Sweetie-Pie”. The second immediately puts her dolly over her knee and as she is spanking it, she says... “Her name is Naughty-Naughty”. Those two given names don’t tell us a thing about the dolls, but they sure tell us a lot about the two little girls! Name-giving comes from inside of us, and so it was with Adam. However, unlike the two little girls, Adam saw through Holy Ghost eyes. What he saw was his own complex human nature, NOT true animal natures. He did not see a natural dog nature inside himself, but something that reminded him - Slide5:  5 something in his own nature that could act somewhat like a dog. What Adam saw was both good and bad. Dogs can bark and give warning, or be lazy and prefer to sleep. They also throw up something that they have eaten that is poison to them... walk away from it... then turn back, sniff of it and re-eat it again — and THIS TIME it STAYS DOWN! We know today that God made dogs able to do that. Scientifically, when a dog eats something poisonous to it, it vomits it. However, the combination of digestive juices and oxygen neutralizes the mess and its odor changes back into something that smells good to the dog. If he eats it the second or third time, it is harmless to him, BUT NOT SO FOR US! Adam identified part of his human nature as ALSO able to vomit poisonous things out of his heart and mind — as well as his stomach. However, now that we have proved to ours-elves that we can get rid of it, curiosity causes us to “nibble” a little on it again and again. Common experience has let us know that this is not a wise choice. Its not near as easy for us to get rid of it again. It wants to stay down! If people could only quit after their first bad experience with telling a lie, stealing, vanity, pride, smoking, drugs, pornography, etc. etc. etc. and etc. But like the “dog” ….many return to their vomit. God was watching Adam to see what he would name that doggish potential that came with his natural body. What Adam called it was what God calls it. In any language spoken in heaven or earth, the “dog” is still a “dog,” and that is what God calls it in scripture when He talks to us about THAT PART of us. Adam also named the “fox,” that backtracking, deceiving, thieving, quick-thinking political animal that loves to play games when saving its own skin. Jesus used the term to describe Herod, “Go tell that fox ...” (Luke 13:31,32) Pigs, eagles, wolves, doves, goats, deer, leopards, bulls, horses, wild asses, pigeons, vultures, etc. -- ALL the creatures formed out of the adamah — Adam named them all! Yes, even the serpent. There is an ehretz serpent, and there is an adamah serpent. They are not the same. They don’t eat the same things. This is why Adam was not deceived in the transgression. He had been to God’s Holy Ghost Grade School. Now, he was ready to begin Holy Ghost High School and learn how to exercise proper dominion — but not until his helpmeet was given to him . WHY THE NECESSITY FOR DOMINION? God’s nature is divine. His Son had the same nature, and so did all the heavenly host. They were all partakers and participants of God’s divine nature. They loved. They loved Slide6:  6 because it was their nature to love. But, God wanted something even BETTER for His Son. God began all natural creation to train Jesus (Col. 1:16-19). God wanted to present His Son with a many membered bride that would love him by CHOICE and not just automatically because it was their nature to do so. For this to happen, God and Jesus created man in Their own image and after Their own likeness BUT IN AN EARTHLY BODY! Unlike heavenly bodies, that body was subject to the elements and carried a complex nature different than God’s divine nature. It was a human nature that could affect Adam’s mind to go another way than God’s way. God’s design subjected man to a LESSER nature, LOWER than the angels. He did so in hope that man would make the right choices (Rom. 8:20). People only learn and grow through making choices. Although Adam’s body was of the earth, he had a heavenly mind. But, he also had the ability to think DIFFERENTLY than God thought, should he choose to do so. Therefore Adam had the freedom to form an earthly mind by choosing to ignore his heavenly mind. As long as Adam’s heavenly mind was in control over his earthly nature, his flesh, his eyes and his life were all under control by God. Adam’s flesh and eyes were NOT lusting out of control in the way that is common today. Neither was he proud of his own life and abilities. Everything was in proper balance. God had thoroughly equipped Adam to do the job that He had called him to do. He was ready to begin learning how to have dominion through the Holy Ghost. Adam was ready to receive his help meet. Gen. 2:21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; 22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. When Adam laid his Holy Ghost eyes on this woman, did he see just the dog, or the fox or the eagle? Of course not. Adam saw the whole zoo and knew immediately where she had come from. I like Adam’s statement in Hebrew - it goes like this, “This was once bone from my bone and flesh from my flesh. To this shall be called ‘woman’, for from her man is this taken.” EVE HADN’T GONE TO SCHOOL YET? Eve came along AFTER Adam had graduated from Holy Ghost Grade School. Adam’s first class in Holy Ghost High School was to take on Eve as his student in Holy Ghost First Grade. Eve didn’t know a thing about the potentials she carried within herself, but Adam did. Was this setup a mistake on God’s part? Of course not. None of us really know something just because we receive it into ourselves. Our test, Slide7:  7 just like in school, is whether we can bring it back OUT of ourselves at the proper time. That is the proof that we have retained it and know as we OUGHT to know it. (1 Cor. 8:2) GOD’S PLAN OF EDUCATION God planned that Adam should continue to develop in the right way through teaching Eve. After Eve’s “graduation,” He would have instructed them to begin bringing their children into the world. Then it would have been Eve’s turn to develop properly by passing on what she had retained in her heart from Adam. Together, they would see their children developing in God - growing up, being tempted to go their own ways, but choosing to keep their fleshly natures under control. Each one of their children would have had the benefit of a Holy Ghost mind over them as they grew up. All their human descendants would be learning, through their choices, how to love God with all their hearts, souls and minds. That is why God wanted them to have dominion over lesser creatures - so they could learn both compassion and responsibility. Then they could freely love and serve God and become a many-membered bride for Jesus — God’s gift to His Son. Adam didn’t do his job — not all of it, anyway. The plan, as I have laid it out, didn’t allow for problems, and problems there must be. This particular problem began when Eve was off by herself. She probably had a few lessons about the adamah creatures. She knew the ehretz creatures didn’t “talk”, other than in their own limited communication. However, ALL ADAMAH creatures talk and their language is the same as the person that they are in. Please remember I am not referring to actual animal or bird natures, but HUMAN nature that somewhat resembles them - at least in the minds of humanity. THE SERPENT AND SUBTLETY So what IS the serpent? First of all, God had it recorded that the serpent was (or “came to be” in Hebrew) “more subtle than any beast of the field (adamah) which the Lord God had made.” “Subtle” is the key word. ALL of the beasts of the adamah were subtle, but the serpent was MORE subtle than any of the rest of them, so we couldn’t be too far wrong in saying it represents “subtlety”. Subtlety is a function of the human mind that is constantly comparing one thing to another to see possible combinations of shapes, colors, ideas, etc. It is curious. It questions everything. It is inventive. It is creative. It is daring. Without the Holy Ghost in charge, it is also destructive. So here we have a talking serpent and an ongoing conversation. Something in Eve questions what Adam has told her. She wasn’t there when God spoke to Adam, so Adam Slide8:  8 MUST have told her exactly what God said. If Adam had lied to Eve, then the fall of man began before the bible record of it. But, Adam told her exactly what God had told him: Gen. 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. This is exactly what God told Adam, and what Adam had told Eve, but look how Eve answers the question: Gen. 3:2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3 But of the fruit of the tree which [is] in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, NEITHER SHALL YE TOUCH IT, lest ye die. Eve ADDED something to what God had said! God had NOT said that they shouldn’t “touch it”. We see this later when God asked... Gen. 3:11 And he said, Who told thee that thou [wast] naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? I am well aware that it is popular to believe that sexual intercourse was the sin in the garden and many jokes have been written about it. However, let me say up front that THAT is NOT what I am saying. Neither do I condone illegal sexual activity of any kind. Please do not think that my emphasis on either “TOUCHING” or “NOT TOUCHING” refers to anything physical. It does not. It is mental. It has to do with KNOWLEDGE. Simply taking knowledge of something. It is true that the phrase “know” and “knew” are also used to describe sexual activity, but that is AFTER the sin in the garden. It is quite possible that the conception of Cain was the first thing that Adam and Eve did to “cele-brate” their new-found freedom, but that was AFTER the fact. If you disagree with what you think I am saying, let me say it first, and then you will know for sure (grin). ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION? (REV. 22:19) Let me go back to Eve’s statement, and her addition to what God had said, and put it into perspective. First, Jesus had NEVER added to anything God had said. None of the angelic host had either. Adam had not done it. Everyone so far had thought within the boundaries of God’s own mind. Eve was the first to add to God’s words -- a VERY common occurrence among both men and women since then. However, Eve’s addition to God’s word did not wreck the universe. It did not shake God up, nor did it upset any part of His plan. The only thing it did was change the adamah serpent within Eve. That, in turn, caused the first lie to be born, and at that, the lie was half truth and half lie - like all the fruit on that Slide9:  9 tree: Gen. 3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. What part was the lie? — that they would “not SURELY die.” What part was the half-truth? — that they would know a mixture of good and evil and be as gods themselves. This is the first recorded lie, and Jesus told us that the adversary was a “liar from the beginning.” That lie came from an encouraged, talking, ADAMAH serpent, NOT an EHRETZ serpent. It was AFTER that lie was lodged in Eve’s thinking, that her perceptions about the whole tree changed. The tree of knowledge was in both Adam and Eve individually, not just Adam. Eve came out from him. That tree of knowledge was their own immature natural mind. God was raising them under a Holy Ghost mind until they would become mentally mature. We see the same pattern in all parent-child relationships, only now the parental mind is not spiritual - but the independence of the immature mind still wants to think on its own. So Eve’s perceptions changed. She saw in her own tree - that her ability to think for herself was “good for food”. She could “control her her fleshly nature” by herself. She saw that her tree was also “pleasant to the eyes” - she could enlighten her own “eyes of under-standing” by herself. She also saw that her own tree of knowledge was “something to be desired” because it would “make her wise,” so that socially, she would be anyone’s equal. She could be proud of herself and her accomplishments. In her exuberance, she brought her new-found revelation to Adam. ADAM TAKES A SECOND LOOK AT EVE When Adam looked at Eve through those Holy Ghost eyes, he saw the adamah zoo had changed. Eve’s adamah serpent was larger, stronger, and dominating over all the rest. Eve had changed. She wasn’t like her husband anymore on the inside. Adam was alone again. He was uncomfortably back in the “not good” state. Adam could have saved Eve right at that juncture by turning to God for comfort, help and patience. Had he done so, he would have entered Holy Ghost High School. There, he would have learned how, through the Spirit, to teach Eve to deny herself, cast down her imaginations and every high thing that exalted itself against the knowledge of God. He would have saved her — just like preachers can learn to do with “difficult” saints today. Then they would have made excellent parents for the human race. Because, if Eve hadn’t been deceived, it would have been one or Slide10:  10 more of their offspring. Why? Because the same “tree” and same adamah serpent would have been in them all. However, had they all overcome, they would be, together, a bride for Jesus, freely loving Him, and would have learned, without sinning, WHY God is GOOD. But Adam didn’t do it. Though he knew God, he glorified Him not AS God, and quit being thankful. His imagination couldn’t see any way out, and the Light he had in his heart began to go out. Eve was only deceived. She hadn’t done anything with her new-found revelation except to come to her husband with it, just like God hoped she would. THE ADAMAH LAMB SLAIN It was different with Adam. He was not deceived. He knew beforehand what function the adamah serpent served and what function the adamah lamb served. The adamah lamb nature inside him, kept him yielded to the Holy Ghost. It was the pivotal point from which he made his choices. Rather than suffer helping Eve conform back to Christ under a Holy Ghost mind, Adam chose to kill the lamb nature within himself. Therefore, the first murder was done by Adam, not Cain. Adam was the one who slew the Lamb out of himself, and laid the foundation of this present “world” or system of man. Rev. 13:8 .....the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. In murdering the Lamb, he also murdered himself, his wife, and all his offspring. The Light went completely out inside of Adam. He lost his Holy Ghost mind and the Holy Ghost as well. From that time on, none of Adam’s offspring (coming from two human parents) have been born WITH the Holy Ghost. Their natural minds could not (and cannot) completely control the lusts of the flesh, the eyes and the pride of life, because those drives have become warped themselves. When Adam laid the foundation of the world, it changed the simple desires of the flesh and eyes into lusts. It changed the human life into the pride of self-reliance. These in turn, without the influence of Holy Ghost thinking, dominate and fuel the human mind into habitual ways that produce sin after sin. When there is no repentance from those sins,they produce a full-blown carnal mind - a fruit that is full of seeds, able to reproduce itself and in turn, set on fire the course of nature. As we grow up in this world, and God is not present in the heart and mind, the natural or carnal nature we are born with will automati-cally produce a natural or carnal mind in each of us. As our carnal mind develops, it warps the natural or carnal nature even more, and it becomes a very bad marriage indeed. Slide11:  11 GOD’S SOLUTION: MULTIPLICATION AND DIVISION Of course, God has a solution. He always did. The Lamb was only slain FROM the foundation of the world, but Jesus said to God.... John 17:24b ... for thou lovedst me BEFORE the foundation of the world. 1Pet. 1:20 Who verily was foreordained BEFORE the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, Eph. 1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him BEFORE the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: God’s plan is still on track. He hoped Adam would NOT choose wrong, but since he did, God made some adjustments in the serpent: The ADAMAH serpent (not the EHRETZ serpent) can only serve its belly, or it’s own selfish desires. All sin is selfish. It can only fill itself with “dust” (things of natural humanity) and cannot ever eat anything of the Holy Ghost and live, and it dies when it runs out of “dust”. It can be only an enemy to Christ and His disciples, and though it may wound us in our walk, we can crush it through Christ if we just keep walking. Hebrews 12:13 And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed. GOD MADE ADJUSTMENTS IN HIS PLAN FOR EVE: Eve received multiplied sorrows, and more children than she would have had. God originally planned for only 144,000 humans - all overcomers to make up a many-membered bride for Jesus. But subsequently, God saves as many as He can into the family of God to grow up as much as they can before they die. However, the “pickings” are slim - there are presently over six billion people alive on this earth. “Broad is the way.....” GOD MADE ADJUSTMENTS IN HIS PLAN FOR ADAM: Adam’s ground was cursed, and yes, it was his ADAMAH and NOT the ehretz. The natural earth/ehretz has plenty of thorns and thistles in it, but not nearly as many as we have within our natures. Also, as a note of interest, even the natural ehretz weeds grow BEST where mankind has made “improvements” in the planet’s landscape. Take a look at gardens, roadsides, clear cuts in forests, etc. Adam inherited labor until death — and all the sweat that comes along with it. Sweat is just inside impurities coming out. A man doesn’t have to be hoeing a field of vegetables to produce a “sweat” — I have HEARD a self- Slide12:  12 styled mechanic “sweat” verbally as he “busted his knuckles” trying to fix his car. Why is it that in everything we do, we want to force it? My son kicked a rock that he had just stumbled over, calling it a “Stupid rock!” I just laughed and said, “I never met a stupid rock before.” Sweat. We say, “don’t sweat it!” but we do, don’t we, — all the days of our fleshly lives. BIRTH DIFFERENCES The only real rest we have is in the Holy Ghost. But, none of us is born naturally with a Holy Ghost mind. We are born with only a “hole” where the Holy Ghost mind should be. The conscience can sense it, or sense the lack of it, and tone us down at times when the carnal mind is not too active. Jesus was not born from two earthly parents. God spoke his word into an egg in Mary’s womb and it began to divide and form a human. Science has shown that sometimes an egg will divide on its own in even a human mother, but the resulting baby is always female and carries only the genes of the mother. In other words, it is a duplicate of her - a clone of her. God made humanity able to produce two kinds of reproductive cells: female cells, normally called “X” cells, and male cells, normally called “Y” cells. God made women to produce ONLY ONE kind - “X” or female cells. Men produce BOTH kinds, “X” AND “Y.” Therefore the father determines the sex of his children. When conception takes place, the mother contributes only a single female cell - the egg. The father contributes one sperm cell - either male or female. If the fertilized egg has “XX” then it will produce a girl. If the egg has “XY,” then it will be a boy. Mary could only produce one “X.” Therefore, since Jesus was male, it is PROOF that God added something - that “Y” that God provided was the essence of his pre-existing Son, stripped of all knowledge, understanding, power, etc. and down to the basic essence of his being. This came into Mary and Jesus formed in the womb just like we do. There is only one difference: Jesus was conceived OF the Holy Ghost, and had the Holy Ghost WITH HIM through the forming of his human body and mind and was BORN WITH the Holy Ghost in him. He never had to receive it. He only had to receive special anointing for special tasks. In contrast, John the Baptist only had the Holy Ghost FROM his mother’s womb. And that was just a “filling” and not a baptism in the Holy Ghost. - a spiritual “conception” and not a “birth.” What this means, is that Jesus was like Adam BEFORE Adam chose to disobey God. Adam was never born like a baby is born, but Slide13:  13 he was created with the Holy Ghost breathed into him. It helped him live victoriously until he failed the test and went his own way. JESUS WENT TO GOD’S SCHOOLS God sent Jesus to Holy Ghost Grade School, just as He did Adam. Only Jesus completed his course and graduated. (—and with honors!) Mark 1:13 And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him. Now that Jesus was in the same place as Adam once was, HE ALSO knew “what was in man.” Jesus came to save a fallen people from which God would form a bride for him. Jesus didn’t make the same mistake Adam did, but turned to God for help with his loneliness. At the same time Jesus entered His ministry, he entered Holy Ghost High School. He stayed faithful to God, even fulfilling the prophecies of the Lamb of God - once slain in type by Adam - and slain in actuality by Adam’s descendants. They killed the true Lamb. RESURRECTION POWER! This allowed God to show His heart and His ability to RAISE THE LAMB FROM THE DEAD! And so God can do that in any one of us who repents. With the Lamb of God back within us, helping us yield to God’s Spirit, God can give us a Holy Ghost mind -- and a chance to overcome every living adamah nature within us. In this manner, God not only forgives us from our sins, but cleanses us from our iniquities as well. And He will even help us to stop transgressing, so that we never step out of His ways again! God will yet have a bride for His Son - and one which loves both God and Jesus with all their hearts, souls and minds. Jesus is currently in God’s Holy Ghost College up in third heaven. There, He is ruling over God’s growing eternal kingdom. He is working on perfecting a five-fold ministry and a perfectly functioning many-membered body. He is learning how to get us all in order under the Holy Ghost mind and has plans to subdue all God’s enemies. He is also wise enough to wait until both He and His bride graduate before they get married. GRADUATION DAY FINALS So, after they take their “finals” on Resur-rection and Great White Throne Judgment, Jesus and His queen will teach and raise the rest of God’s immature family until they ALL grow up into God and God is finally ALL IN ALL. As Jesus said to our Heavenly Father, the ONLY TRUE GOD…. Matthew 6:13b Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen!   May you, too, graduate with honors!
