Deception: Toned Down and Dressed Up

Jul 6, 2008
Did the sunrise chase away starry dreams? Was it a day like today? From mountain summits to valley floors, surely all creation joined nature's refrain as the Almighty's chorus sprang to life. This voiceless chorus sang utopian strains of heavenly rhapsody while lambs and lions feasted on spring leaves.

Neither sharp words nor even weeds corrupted this unspoiled paradise. Did the bluebird's breezy refrain awaken our earliest parents? Perhaps their eyes opened at the gentle shove of an affable beast. They loved and laughed and honor held sway. Then revolt. Betrayal!

By dusk the songbird's chorus surrendered its felicity and even the meadows wore sullen shades. Sighs and moans ran through bending blades searching for comfort, but finding none. Murky waters lay still under scarlet skies as creation's back bent under the load of treason's atrocity. Chaos enfolded order, lions roared and consciences sought clothes. Offering sedition no reward, with angels and fiery swords God promised an end to sin's opposition.

If laments ran like mountain streams and dirges outstretched the skies surely this day saw both. Did Eve forget the edict of her Sovereign? Did Adam ponder the outcome of his crime? What went wrong? They spoke with the Almighty each day!Their minds were focused and their bodies unimpaired. They wrestled with only one temptation. One! What was their defense? What was their rationale?

Did our ancestors question the integrity of their Creator's plain warning; "In the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die" (Gen 2:17)? Did they think that somehow they could annul the edict of the Almighty, or that He would change His divine mind? Perhaps they hoped for a heavenly case of amnesia.

What insanity ruled the reason of the ancient pair? Reader, like a mind-bending headlock, "You will not surely die" locked its grip on the flawless minds of paradise. Now, if Satan's lie fooled our pre-fall parents who basked in daily fellowship with their Maker, only our holy Father knows the multiplied possibility of our deception.

Bear in mind, nothing changes the devil's lie into God's truth. Nothing! Just as nothing can make one plus two equal four, nothing makes, "You won't die," a statement of truth when promised to anyone, professing believer or not, who continues in sin. Gentle reader, be warned, though popular but grossly deceived contemporary, evangelical teachers Christianize and disguise Satan's lie, "Ye shall not surely die," remains hell's drug tragically dumbing the minds and closing the eyes of men!
