The day to day walk with the Father really comes down to the day to day walk with His Will. If you can locate the direction in which the Father’s Will is going, then you can locate where the Father is going. Even in the Garden of Eden, once Adam and Eve were not walking in the direction of His Will, they were no longer walking with Him: Genesis 3:8-11, “And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden. 9 And the Lord God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? 10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. 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? So walking in the Will of Father goes hand in hand in walking with the Father. When we mess up in the natural, we don’t want to face that mess up either right then and there. Maybe it will work itself out right if we can just give it a little time we say to ourselves; therefore, we are willing to go all out of the way, or hide from it to give it that time as Adam and Eve tried to do with God. You know, I didn’t know that one could hide from the Omniscience of God, with Him being all-knowing. Then I thought about it. Why would God know anything else other than His Will is going on according to plan until it’s not going on according to plan? Right there in verse 11 stated above, God asked Adam and Eve, “Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?” If you are God, it is not in your spiritual nature to know that which may bring doubt to the faith operation. A faith operation can not withstand the doubt from the knowledge of already knowing a negative outcome is going to happen, especially if coming from the one who is the most powerful entity in existence.
This is part of the reason why God didn’t want them to eat from the knowledge of the tree of good and evil. They would have to be able to operate in faith “like” a God would without allowing the knowledge to come in to them bringing doubt and disbelief if that happened to be the essence of the knowledge acquired. However, we can read in God’s explanation that Adam and Eve would have been at a disadvantage in which the Godhead members do not have: Genesis 3:22-23, “And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become “as” one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: 23 Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.” There is the disadvantage in verse 22, the man would have becomes “as” one of us, and not “like” one of us; and all of my grammar buffs know that the two words have totally different meanings. Let’s keep it simple here: “as” one of us is for the man to know good and evil also; however, “like” one of us would be how the Godhead members do not only know good and evil, but are able to compartmentalize it away to where it does not effect the outcome of the faith operation before the actual results by man is completed. If we take ourselves for examples, we know that when we receive, or eat of knowledge, good or evil, that knowledge will either increase or decrease our faith, or our doubt. And this spiritual law effects the outcome of our will: Romans 10:17, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. When we hear the Word of God, or we hear truth, faith will be coming to move us into that truth; but when we hear the word of everything else, good and evil, faith or doubt will come to just move us. So “as” one of the Godhead members, to know good and evil, the man would not be “like” one of the Godhead members, to not let what is known effect the faith operation before its time. For example, when Abraham was sent to sacrifice Isaac, God compartmentalized foreknowing the outcome of Abraham’s obedience until there was no doubt about it: Genesis 22:12, “And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me.” God would not be all knowing if He didn’t already know, but He could as part of faith protocol keep the envelope sealed until it was time to know what he knew. And remember how God did this with Adam and Eve in the garden when He asked if they were naked as though He did not know. Well to be like God, at times you have to not know until after it’s done, or the faith operation would have no chance. And while man may be able to keep a secret at times, with all things being equal, man can’t keep from not knowing knowledge “like” God, once he knows it. Is there anything too hard for God?
