We have to defend our minds from not just bad, and negative things that oppose our beliefs, but we have to also protect them from good, and positive things that oppose our beliefs. Even an idea that sounds good with no sin or evil intent to be found in it is not the right idea if it goes against the word that we believe. These ideas that don’t sound so bad, and look so good to us, they are the ones in which we must secure our minds from. And I would that we dealt with the security of our minds from a personal level, and then allow our personal successes to overflow its influence into our community and corporate levels. It doesn’t require a lot for a mind to find itself full of the wrong knowledge, and then taking the new path in which that knowledge is feeding. I have found it to be the case more times than not that new situations in which the mind encounters for the first time have a better chance filling us with its new knowledge because of the intrigue it brings with it. We really have to mind our P’s and Q’s, and watch the knowledge that we consume, for this type of knowledge generally catches its victims by surprise.
So how will we “Please The Father Through all The Knowledge?” One place to start is with the model that God attempted to use in the beginning with Adam and Eve. Let’s read the word of direction in which God gave to Adam to follow: Genesis 2:15-17, “And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 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.” We can see in this model that God put all of his eggs in the one basket called the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. God set it up from the start to let them eat from every tree in the garden except that one. As long as they kept from eating that one tree basket, all would be pleasing to God. It’s really the same today, if we follow his commandments, we will “Please The Father Through All The Knowledge.” John 14:21, “He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.”
I am glad that we have the written “Word” because it keeps us on track to do what God has said to do. It also pleases me that we record revelation and prophecy given to someone because once again it allows us to stay on track to do what God has said. So many times you can see where someone misses the move of God because they did not follow the written “Word” or the spoken “word” given in the manner brought forth. One trick that Satan likes to use on us, and it works more times than not, is to get us to make a decision based on something that we thought the “word” said. The “Word” of God, written or spoken, is the light to our path; and if we can be influenced to walk out the “Word” incorrectly, it will insure that we are not able to” Please The Father Through All The Knowledge” that comes our way.
The Serpent was able to trick Eve in that same manner with her husband standing right there doing nothing to help save both of them. And by the way, Adam was the one God had first spoken his word of direction to before Eve was even made. Anyway, the serpent gets Eve started as Satan does to so many of us, to where she is just standing there rolling, and just telling the serpent all about what God had said about eating of every tree of the garden except the one. Now the serpent does what the serpent does, and it just let’s her talk and talk until she says something that God hadn’t said, but she believes that God had said it. So let’s read some of it, and you can go read all of it later: Genesis 3:3, “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.” That’s enough reading: God didn’t say all that in which she just said, and the serpent already knew that God didn’t say all of that. So we need to make sure that we are standing on what God said, or we will find ourselves as Eve did standing on the wrong word, and if it’s not the word of God, then we will not be able to stand. Now here is what God did say that Eve did say incorrectly: Genesis 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.” Yeah I can imagine Adam standing there nonchalantly, and thinking to himself that “I’ve already answered this serpent the past few days, so it already knows the answer that is coming. You know I was pondering whether or not the serpent had already crossed examined Adam in the garden before Eve was made, and therefore, he would know the minute Eve said something wrong to entrap her. It doesn’t take much stated differently than God stated it in order for knowledge to enter in, and throw us off the will of God. In Eve’s case it was a matter of false reality entrapping her to move on further off the path. When Eve said wrongly that God had said neither shall ye touch the fruit, lest ye die. The serpent had her now because once he gets her to touch it, and she does not die, then he can have her believe that the rest of the word is a lie. The false reality is the fact that she did not die from just touching the fruit, because those were her added words, and not any words that God had said: checkmate. And since she didn’t die from just touching it, she now believes that she can go all the way and not die from eating it. So don’t let our words or someone else’s words be credited as God’s word: the false reality created by any one’s word being credited for God’s word will not lead us to our pleasing God, but only lead us to being off our path.
