Adam was put into a deep sleep. You see after observing and naming all the creatures in the Garden, and seeing there was no counterpart for himself, he was put into a deep sleep. It was here that God extracted the rib we call Eve, or Khavah from Hebrew. You see the thing that he needed was from within himself.
We know this because God did not take another clump of clay to produce Adams counterpart. It was the very thing that he yearned for was something that was within himself. He just did not know it yet. This is the place where the real Adam/atom was split.
So we need to be careful not to try to satisfy our yearnings with things outside of ourselves so much, but of things that are within. Just as Paul called Christ the last Adam, that “in Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead body” and “ye are complete in Him who is head overall”. Ultimately that is where you are going to find the real fulfillment of everything you really need of who you really are, of the only things that really satisfy, of things that never wane or fade from Glory, of the things of God, of the things to be written on your heart through His holy writ, verified by His Holy Spirit, and we awaken from within, as we confess it to be real as we are showing you here how to do it here.
Gods things need no renewals, updates, prescriptions or expiration dates or terms and conditions to use. Only the loving arms of the Heavenly one who became flesh to fix the problem man had with God. If it was Gods doing it would’ve been fixed there. But now the problem is fixed with the saving from God we call the Only Begotten. He is our remedy from the ill effects from the garden of Eden, with His only Begotten becoming one of us, a composition un-natural to Him. He then took His carnal man to the cross to reverse the ill effects of the fall for our gain. He is Gods prototype for us to follow. For us to pattern ourselves after, to become godly.
So now we have safe passage to return to “that which is from the beginning”. The place where the first Word ever came from we know as eternity. God called this place His rest of the 7th day, the place before He ever spoke His breath and His Word and created all matter, back to the place we are to participate with them even now called “The Kingdom prepared from the foundations of the world” as being eternal.
The place before God ever said “let there be light, is what humanity is asleep to. So now we have the Gospel. God uttered His Son (John 1.1) and we re-iterate Him again today for the purpose to WAKE you Up to the things of God. For the Son of God even said “the Kingdom of God is within you”. (Luke 17.22) if you are of this sort.
So God has the market cornered on things that don’t need renewals, updates or upgrades because they are already in their eternal perfection of God like Glory. And you know what? They are free for the asking to the re-newed mind of faith. (Isaiah 55)
So God put a deep sleep on Adam and removed something that was inside him. As long as Adam had the thing that was in him we call the rib and Eve, to be now outside, he would remain in his catatonic state of sleep, or spiritual slumber, of being unresponsive to Gods promptings.
However being asleep, you are more alert to the bad news of the spirit of this age with carnal promptings. But we have the good news, in Greek it’s called the gospel. That means good news, that we wake up and see that the enemy and all his local news and bad news is the illusion and the distraction. That those who wake up have come to know and confess that “nothing shall separate us from the love of God that is in Yeshua Christ, neither height nor death, principalities or powers, nor things present or things to come. That we are more than conquerers through Him who loved us”. You see all the bad news is only as real as fear allows. To some it’s just a boogie man.
Fear was the first emotion Adam had when he felt something was missing, when he felt naked and ashamed. That is why God asked him, Adam where are you? You see Adam had tried on some words from another and experienced an emotion God did not give him, fear.
That’s the enemies plan for you and an emotion from the wrong gospel. If you fear God, the god of this age has no power on you because you have woken up.
Fear on steroids is terrorism and “those who fear have not been perfected in love because fear involves torment”. So you know how the powers that be try to detain you. To keep you paralyzed and earth bound. But we have a Heavenly calling.
For us who understand this, we look at the things outside, being the visuals with our carnal faculties, as temporary presentations to learn from, to wake us up to what we have inside us, our inheritance we possess of the things that are truely real, of things not made of dirt or elements associated with the 6 days of creation, but the eternal, invisible things we are to wake up to that existed before God ever said “let there be light”.
This is what Paul meant when he said “when I was a child, I thought like a child and spoke like a child. But when I grew up I put away childhood things”. He learned the distinction.
The things Paul associated with in a carnal way, taught him a new expression and a new association in Heaven of being godly. Not a religious piety, but a new body of beliefs, mindsets and fearless behaviors. So we learn to “put on the full armor of God”.
This is why we are instructed to put Christ on. If He were a man in the beginning I suppose we would just try to dress like Him. But those instructions were not left behind, unless you want to ride around town as a peasant on a donkey without a pillow and no place to lay His head. That was His dependancy on the things that are here.
For this cause Paul also said “a child is no different than a slave, but is under guardians and tutors until time appointed from the Father. Maybe this is your appointment for you to grow up in understand and awaken to the greater gift of God given in Christ.
The things of this age are given to wake us to what we already have inside and why we are told of Christ that “in Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead body and we are complete in Him who is over all” of those of us “who have put off the deeds of the flesh (the carnal thinking) and have (already) put on the new person (made as an exactitude) in the image of Him who created us. (Colosians 3)
In reality, Gods things are the only things that are really real and eternal, and why Peter said “10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be [d]burned up. So you wouldn’t fixate on the things below where you carnal person resides because you don’t get to keep that. It returns to the dust, so hold on loosely.
Christs coming is even now if you understand that He is the “behold I stand at the door and knock” and the “I am with you always, even to the end of this age”.
That is why Ephesians says: “Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead (from the things that detain you), And Christ will give you light.” So you can see where you are going.
This is what we pray for you. That you may wake up to the reality that is within you, the thing that you may grasp, not with your physical hands. No, because those instruments are for those who sleep, but with your invisible tools from the realm that’s real. Gods realm.
Even as Paul prayed that “17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, 18 the eyes of your [f]understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in (key opporative, in not out of) the saints, 19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power 20 which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places,21 far above all principality[g] and [h]power and [i]might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also all that are to follow.”
This however makes no sense to those who are still asleep that the resurrection power of God, lay within those who have His deposit. You just haven’t woken up to realize and recieve it yet, because your faith muscle is either asleep or dead. Faith is the substance of the things we hope for, the evidence that the things unseen are real. (Hebrews 11)
Adam persisted in his catatonic state of sleep and passed it on to all humanity, including you, of which the only way to wake up is through the gospel we espouse. Not speaking of another coming Jesus at a different time or a later date for human exposure to God, because His saturation is complete.
Even as scripture says “who is He who ascended, but He who also descended to Hell, in order to fill all in all. He is every where, all the time even now as the “lo I am with you always, even to the end of the ages”. So He is right here, right now, squaring up with you to see what you will do. Which is? Well we hope, WAKE UP.
That through your exposure to the things we possess and testify to of the things of God available to you by faith, to wake you up now to the fact and only real reality is “that which is from the beginning” being “The Kingdom of God at hand”, to those not with their carnal faculties but spiritual. That “God is Spirit and truth and seeketh such” to reverberate with. That now, today is the day to possess your inheritance today is the day of salvation, today is the day for the gospels completion. This is what true salvation is. Not like the i.o.u. presented to you by the decievers they call a second coming. This they do because they have no faith. That “one must first believe that He is, and that He rewards those that diligently seek Him”. And His rewards are many, but because His things are invisible, we can only convey them through words to your understanding to leave an impression for you to wake up.
This is why Paul wrote this in Romans “, knowing the time, that it is now high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. Well yah. It is at hand.
Now, the Rest of God, which is not a slumber, is the contrast to those who sleep from God. The place we associate with as having recieved our inheritance, revealed to us in His Holy writ and activated by faith, so that you can sit down with the Father, only when you learn to do this. No more wringing your hands and dwelling on the “what ifs” in life.
You can rest assured of this that this is the “Kingdom prepared, made ready, available and opened for business, from the foundation of the world. Think about it. If Gods things are eternal, how is it that some are looking for things to be made for Gods Kingdom to appear? They are asleep. We are awake in quite repose in that which is from the beginning. How simple.
