    Let's talk about Eve:

    The Lord God said, Genesis 2: 15 "And the Lord God commanded the man saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat (permission).
    Gene. 2:16 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 tree has consequences.

    In the commandment the Lord God said, You can eat from ANY of the trees in this garden. But, (God gives free agency and a warning) of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: Because this tree brings death of mortality." So the properties of this tree brings about death which is contrary to a life eternal where there is no death, and no use of free agency, therefore no being tempted to choose evil over the gifts of God.

    So there are two things going on here, if Adam and Eve stay in the garden -- because they decided they did not want to have knowledge or children and certainly they did not want mortal lives where they die in a thousand years, (one day to God is a 1000 years) then stay away from that tree.

    This choice includes with their free agency to live in ignorant bliss, just the two of them.

    Along comes Satan, and his motive is to build up his own Kingdom and thwart the plans of God. So he asks Eve a question he already knows the answer to, "Has God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

    Eve answers the serpent saying, "We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden. But God warned, Don't eat the the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden don't even touch it or, "You will die." It was a very lethal tree.

    The serpent said, No way, you won't die. God knows that if you eat of that tree you will gain knowledge and you will be like gods, knowing what they know, good and evil.

    Eve saw that fruit was edible and that it was also pleasant to look at, both very nice qualities, but that wouldn't be enough for her to choose to touch that tree, because the other trees of many, had delicious fruit, perfect fruit, fruit that one could never get tired of, but what those other trees did not have, is the ability to make her and Adam wise.

    She also convinced Adam that knowledge is good and he took a bite. Now they both began an ability to recognize and solve problems. They knew they would be discovered by their Father God. Therefore, like most mortals, they thought if they hide, God would not see them. And so it begins.
    Adam and Eve were cast out of the garden having to live in a world where there is both good and evil and their education begins even with experiencing sorrow. Yes, but, there is also a blessing that goes with it, a great plan of God. He granted unto Eve conception, children, the love of our lives. The snake got cursed and Adam and Eve got children in the middle of their free agency and sorrow of hard times.

    So let's fast track to Revelations 11: 10 where we discover that God knew how he was going to work good for the children of God in the middle of the Garden of Eden. To God the garden was the pathway for all of us to learn important lessons, to prove where our hearts and intents are and to earn trusted Glory for further plans for those children with right hearts:

    Satan was cast down to earth with those spirits who became his followers against heavenly Father. And this is the same place He put Adam and Eve. See the plan? We are here, because of that Plan which Adam and Eve did not fail in achieving.

    "And I heard a loud voice in heaven saying, Now is come salvation and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ!"
    "REJOICE ye heavens and ye that dwell in them! "

    Satan "knoweth that he hath but a short time."

    We live in a time where there is civil strife through out the whole world. Everything is record breaking. There has never been to this extent half of U.S. citizens fighting against the other half. Families are divided against each other over political ideology. The Lord says, all things are spiritual to him. He also says he cannot bless a nation's people, or build up a nation unless they live by the principles of the Kingdom of God. So where are we with that? It would explain a few things.

    I have given a bit of a testimony before, but I feel to give it again:

    I am thankful to my grandmother, because from the time I was four she was telling me about God. I think there are children whose grandparents can make a big difference in their lives. I was a kid who thought things over and I never doubted the Lord Jesus Christ who looks like his Father and represents the Father to us. The scriptures say he is the "Express image of his Father." They also say that he doesn't do anything that he hasn't seen the Father do."

    We've seen sons whose appearance is like their Father's. That is Jesus Christ whose very appearance is the same as his Father, even our Father, but since Adam and Eve mankind has taken on other appearances especially since the Tower of Babel and on into our time.

    The physical Jesus was born and died for us, was resurrected to an Eternal body never to die again. That is the example for us as Christ leads in all things as that example for us.

    So now what is Heaven? It is where perfected, Eternally physical people return to after they are resurrected. A physical place where people set their foot to walk upon, a perfect place that is set in a glory that is the highest in beauty, knowledge of all things. Wisdom rules, Love is understood and is the foundation of all existence. (hate is a destroyer of all things) Jesus sits beside his Father's right hand to take charge of what his Father gives him to do for us. Heaven is family and we are also made up of personal family units there.

    Heaven is not a cloud where we sit with halos. It is a place, the region of Glory.

    Dear Chevron Dove, You have shown a special courageous natural spirit and mind for goodness so if you build upon that searching for Truth with prayer, spiritual doors will open for you, and you can be a source through the Lord for much light for understanding to others. In other words if you want to help God, he will impress and inspire you in your heart and mind in what way. All it requires is study the scriptures, pray for understanding as you go, do what the Lord Christ says in word and principle. That is the key.

    The Bible is your first foundation. It means that you have obtained and are obtaining knowledge with verification through the Holy Spirit. And, that is pure. Then when there is a need God will recall to your mind what you learned in truth and the Spirit will give you words that you learned and He will build upon those words for many things.

    Don't lean on pastors for what you know. Lean on the scriptures and the Holy Spirit, and verify for yourself.

    Remember, "It is given to the children of God to (eventually in our lifetime if we are faithful ) learn the mysteries."

    There are laws irrevocably decreed in Heaven, before the foundation of this earth, upon which all blessings are predicated, and when we obtain any blessing from God, it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated. At first God gives everyone a special gift or two at birth, which we describe as talent for something. Then, after that what we do will bless us to move forward in some way, because it is in line with the Lord's instructions, all based on the laws of Heaven. One is why the Lord had to pay Justice before there could be mercy. So he sacrificed himself paying Justice. There is no more sacrifice to pay Justice. The Lord was the only Atonement. Even God lives by Laws. You have to forgive if you want to be forgiven. Of corse that doesn't mean we invite ISIS to dinner. So just doing what the Lord says bring a load of blessings.

    We have seen that whosoever will may lay hold upon the word of God, which is quick and powerful, which shall divide asunder all the cunning and the snares and the wiles of the devil, and lead the people of Christ in a strait and narrow course across that everlasting gulf of misery which is prepared to engulf the wicked.

    Concerning faith: Faith is not to have a perfect knowledge of things; therefore if you have faith in Jesus Christ, you have hope for the many things which you have not yet seen, which are true.
