Reading Day 2 Post first is recommended:
So far I have covered the following topics which can be reviewed in Day 2post:
God is a spirit, Satan is a spirit, Man is a spirit, God’s Domain- heavenly/spiritual realm, Man’s Domain- earthly/natural realm,
God needs a body to access man’s domain and man needs a spirit to access God’s domain, man who is a spirit, has a soul and lives in a
body can enjoy both the natural and spiritual realms.
In this article I will address issues surrounding the fall of man.
Man’s ability to access both the natural and spiritual realms without violating domain rights gave him a center stage
as a gateway for spirit beings to gain legal access to the earth realm.
Revelation 12:7-9, 12 KJV
7.“And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,”
8.“And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.”
9.“And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world:
he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”
12.“Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea!
for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.”
Today’s scriptural reference above, sets the stage for the events described in Genesis Chapter 3, about the temptation and fall of man,
namely Adam and Eve, but federally, the fall of the entire human race.
When Satan, the devil, got defeated in heaven, and was cast down to the earth, he quickly learned that he was pretty much homeless.
Cast out of the heavenly realm – the domain of spirits – to the natural realm (the domain of man). The rendition in verse 12
“Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea!
for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath,” captures Satan’s rage against man because of the enviable position man now held on earth.
Satan resolves that at all costs, he must gain earthly dominion from man. At this juncture, Satan still has another huddle in his way
he doesn’t have a body. To resolve the later, he enteres (incarnates himself) into a snake.
Knowledge of the Sunday School story about the fall of man is assumed here. For simplicity’s sake, Satan or the snake successfully tricks the first couple,
Adam and Eve into disobeying God ( their creator), and for doing so, Satan earns himself the following curse from God:
Genesis 3:14 KJV
“And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou artcursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field;
upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:”
Prior to the curse, the serpent must have had legs and feed on plants like other animals. This highlights the truth I shared in Day 2 post,
that spirit beings need a body, to legally transact any business here on earth.
The first and most sought after, is the body of man, in the absence of which, spirit beings will settle for the body of an animal ( Mark 5:12, Numbers 22:21-39).
Your understanding of the events leading to this point is vital to your understanding of topics that I will be covering hereafter.
It’s highly advisable that you review previous posts, before my next topic which will be
“MAN IS A SPIRITUAL CONTAINER “ in Day 4 post.
Prayer for accepting Jesus’s as Lord and Savior:
Father, I come to you, In the name of your son, Jesus Christ. I admit that I have sinned against you,
and I am sorry for my sins. Please forgive me. Dear Jesus, come into my heart, and save me.
I totally and wholly surrender my life to you. I will live for and serve you the rest of my life. In Jesus’s name I pray. Amen
