"And God saw that the light was good (suitable, pleasant) and He approved it; and God separated the light from the darkness. And God said, Let there be light; and there was light."
These verses remind me of the
continuing work of Holy Spirit in us, identifying the darkness that attempts to
creep into our vessels and separating it from the light, which is Jesus. This
beautiful picture embedded in the act of creation embodies the sanctification
of us all, our process towards holiness.
“But of the tree of the knowledge
of good and evil and blessing and calamity you shall not eat, for in the day
that you eat of it you shall surely die.”
This is a verse which has stumped
me for years. If Adam and Eve did not have the knowledge to determine good vs.
evil prior to eating from the tree, then how did Eve know it was evil to
disobey God’s command not to eat of it?
