Why? Because I Am Still Looking And Considering Other Possibilities For My Creation.
- Perhaps the possibility to become my own ‘God’?
- Perhaps taking care of the Garden was not appealing to me?
- Perhaps sitting on Your throne, possessing all Your power and knowledge and wisdom was by far better than simply passing my time taking care of the Garden and multiplying to replenish the earth?

O my Father—O Father of mine! I’m awake, but! You know how and what am I feeling? Yeah, I know it’s just feelings. You are in control of those feelings. Maybe going back to bed You’ll give me some relief, but! Once again, I wish to plead to You, “Remove the money issue in my life. I do not want to worry but I do. Only You can set me free from such worry. Perhaps You send me above the necessary means to live by. I sense my health and my sanity in all are at stake. But You know all of that. Maybe I should be pleading for sleep instead.”

It’s no use. I am still sleepy. Can’t wake up! Back to bed.

What do ye know? It just came to me. What took place at the time of our creation? Countless times I have read the chapter. Why are You now bringing it to my remembrance? Perhaps, the countless times this chapter is read, it is done so by the understanding of the human mind? Perhaps, it is time for Your Spirit to set this account in order? Here is the account:
The Creation of Man and Woman
Genesis 1:25-29 AMPC+
And the Almighty Creator made the [wild] beasts of the earth according to their kinds, and domestic animals according to their kinds, and everything that creeps upon the earth according to its kind. And the Almighty Creator saw that it was good (fitting, pleasant) and He approved it.
The Master Almighty Creator said, Let Us [Father, Son, and Holy Spirit] make mankind in Our image, after Our likeness, and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the [tame] beasts, and over all of the earth, and over everything that creeps upon the earth. [Psa_104:30; Heb_1:2; Heb_11:3]
So The Master Almighty Creator created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of The Master Almighty Creator He created him; male and female He created them. [Col_3:9-10; Jas_3:8-9]
And The Master Almighty Creator blessed them and said to them, Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it [using all its vast resources in the service of The Master Almighty Creator and man]; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and over every living creature that moves upon the earth.
And The Master Almighty Creator said, See, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the land and every tree with seed in its fruit; you shall have them for food.
Genesis 2:4-25 AMPC+
This is the history of the heavens and of the earth when they were created. In the day that the Master Almighty Creator made the earth and the heavens–
When no plant of the field was yet in the earth and no herb of the field had yet sprung up, for the Master Almighty Creator had not [yet] caused it to rain upon the earth and there was no man to till the ground,
But there went up a mist (fog, vapor) from the land and watered the whole surface of the ground—
Then the Master Almighty Creator formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath or spirit of life, and man became a living being.
And the Master Almighty Creator planted a garden toward the east, in Eden [delight]; and there He put the man whom He had formed (framed, constituted).
And out of the ground the Master Almighty Creator made to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight or to be desired–good (suitable, pleasant) for food; the tree of life also in the center of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of [the difference between] good and evil and blessing and calamity.
Now a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from there it divided and became four [river] heads.
The first is named Pishon; it is the one flowing around the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold.
The gold of that land is of high quality; bdellium (pearl?) and onyx stone are there.
The second river is named Gihon; it is the one flowing around the whole land of Cush.
The third river is named Hiddekel [the Tigris]; it is the one flowing east of Assyria. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.
And the Master Almighty Creator took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to tend and guard and keep it.
And the Master Almighty Creator commanded the man, saying, You may freely eat of every tree of the garden; 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.
Now the Master Almighty Creator said, It is not good (sufficient, satisfactory) that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper (suitable, adapted, complementary) for him.
And out of the ground the Master Almighty Creator formed every [wild] beast and living creature of the field and every bird of the air and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them; and whatever Adam called every living creature, that was its name.
And Adam gave names to all the livestock and to the birds of the air and to every [wild] beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found a helper meet (suitable, adapted, complementary) for him.
And the Master Almighty Creator caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam; and while he slept, He took one of his ribs or a part of his side and closed up the [place with] flesh. And the rib or part of his side which the Master Almighty Creator had taken from the man He built up and made into a woman, and He brought her to the man.
Then Adam said, This [creature] is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of a man.
Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and shall become united and cleave to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. [Mat_19:5; 1Co_6:16; Eph_5:31-33] And the man and his wife were both naked and were not embarrassed or ashamed in each other’s presence.
Genesis 3 1 24 AMPC+
NOW THE serpent was more subtle and crafty than any living creature of the field which the Master Creator had made. And he [Satan] said to the woman, Can it really be that the Master Creator has said, You shall not eat from every tree of the garden? [Rev_12:9-11]
And the woman said to the serpent, We may eat the fruit from the trees of the garden, except the fruit from the tree which is in the middle of the garden. The Master Creator has said, You shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.
But the serpent said to the woman, You shall not surely die, [2Co_11:3]. For the Master Creator knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like the Master Creator knowing the difference between good and evil and blessing and calamity.
And when the woman saw that the tree was good (suitable, pleasant) for food and that it was delightful to look at, and a tree to be desired in order to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she gave some also to her husband, and he ate.
Then the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves apron like girdles.
And they heard the sound of the Master Creatorwalking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Master Creatoramong the trees of the garden.
But the Master Creator called to Adam and said to him, Where are you?
He said, I heard the sound of You [walking] in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself.
And He said, Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten of the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat?
And the man said, The woman whom You gave to be with me–she gave me [fruit] from the tree, and I ate.
And the Master Creator said to the woman, What is this you have done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled (cheated, outwitted, and deceived) me, and I ate.
And the Master Creator said to the serpent, Because you have done this, you are cursed above all [domestic] animals and above every [wild] living thing of the field; upon your belly you shall go, and you shall eat dust [and what it contains] all the days of your life.
And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her Offspring; He will bruise and tread your head underfoot, and you will lie in wait and bruise His heel. [Gal_4:4]
To the woman He said, I will greatly multiply your grief and your suffering in pregnancy and the pangs of childbearing; with spasms of distress you will bring forth children. Yet your desire and craving will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.
And to Adam He said, Because you have listened and given heed to the voice of your wife and have eaten of the tree of which I commanded you, saying, You shall not eat of it, the ground is under a curse because of you; in sorrow and toil shall you eat [of the fruits] of it all the days of your life.
Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth for you, and you shall eat the plants of the field.
In the sweat of your face shall you eat bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you shall return.
The man called his wife’s name Eve [life spring], because she was the mother of all the living.
For Adam also and for his wife the Master Creator made long coats (tunics) of skins and clothed them.
And the Master Creator said, Behold, the man has become like one of Us [the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit], to know [how to distinguish between] good and evil and blessing and calamity; and now, lest he put forth his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever–
Therefore, the Master Creator sent him forth from the Garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken.
So the Master Creator drove out the man; and He placed at the east of the Garden of Eden the cherubim and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep and guard the way to the tree of life. [Rev_2:7; Rev_22:2, Rev_22:14, Rev_22:19]

What do I see now in those verses of Scripture, my Father? How have we managed to bring to nothing this most important account of our creation and the fall from Your original intent for our creation? What was Your intent for our creation, my Father?
Saturday, August 19, 2017 at 11:41 am
Been thinking, my Father. Perhaps my question is redundant. An unnecessary question. For the answer is found in the verses quoted, but! My mind is still stuck in denial of Your intentions for our creation. Why? Because I am still looking and considering other possibilities for my creation.
Perhaps the possibility to become my own ‘God’? Perhaps taking care of the Garden was not appealing to me? Perhaps sitting on Your throne, possessing all Your power and knowledge and wisdom was by far better than simply passing my time taking care of the Garden and multiplying to replenish the earth? Perhaps.
Wow! Dumbfound again! Unbelievable how that mind, that carnal mind of mine can suck me in to discussing matters than have been rehashed and debated and corrupted by the brilliant and not so brilliant of human beings? Phew! Thanks, my Father! Your silent spoke to my child-like heart.
I am going on! No need to know anything other than Your loving care for me and for all of my concern. You are Master, Sole and Mighty Creator of the Universe and all there in existent including the devil and all his cohorts and the trees and the flowers and the birds of the air and the butterflies and all those disgusting creeping things and the snakes, and the cattle, and the sheep and the dogs, and! The human race.
You alone are in total and ultimate control of it all! In Your time, You will come through with Your promises to me and to each one of Your children. That is that! I am going on! Regardless what goes on in this pathetic world that we inhabit. I am going on singing the victory song!
His love in my heart for all remains there to stay for eternity, thiaBasilia.
