Original Sin…

The woman’s sin was rebellion…

Adam’s sin was putting his relationship with his wife before his relationship with God…

Eve left her place under Adam’s protection – he had told her what the Lord had told him about that tree – and she – in his presence – “thumbed her nose” at his authority – which was delegated to him from the Lord – and thus at the Lord’s authority – and fell into deception…

Thus we learn that deception comes through rebellion…

Adam sinned in that he took the fruit from his wife and ate…

He couldn’t have stopped her from eating – that would have been control – but he didn’t have to “agree” with her in her rebellion against him and God by eating also – he didn’t do this, say, “No thank you” – which he should have done – the Lord would have “covered it” I believe if he had have done this – as a husband – we learn later in the Law – can “cancel out” or annul a vow which his wife has made if he does so on the same day that he hears of it – he didn’t trust God (I’m just seeing that now)…

I saw this for the first time on my way in to work…

The Lord was speaking to me about that verse, “a woman shall not teach a man or exercise authority over him”…

The Lord wants women to teach women and children and to focus on the upbringing of children…

If a woman takes a place of authority over a man she places herself in the place Eve placed herself in the Garden of Eden and opens herself up to deception – anyone who remains “under” her authority then opens themselves up to be deceived also – we can not do this…

This is what Jezebel was doing in the Church of Thyatira…

It was – and the Lord wasn’t happy – and He’s still not happy…

The “curses” which the Lord put on Eve and on Adam show the root of their sin…

On Adam – he didn’t trust the Lord to “look after him” he was scared he’d “lose” his wife – and lose all the comforts of having a wife and go back to all that “loneliness” which he experienced before – he didn’t trust the Lord to look after him – so the Lord gave him toil, hard labour – looking after himself – and knowing the pain of trying to look after himself and provide – toil, labour, hard work – “9 til 5” was a curse because of Adam’s (my) choice not to remain with God and trust Him and not “take matters into my own hands” because of what I thought would be good for me…

That “curse” is broken when we see what I am seeing…

Then God is free to “set us free” into the abundance of His Provision as we’re “back with Him” and “trusting Him Alone”…

Eve’s curse was that she’d have pain – the opposite of the pleasure she’d chosen – while she was having children and that her desire would be for her husband – to dominate him – but that he would rule over her…

She got what she wanted – she wanted to be free and out from under her husband’s authority and protection and that’s exactly what she got – but God caused Adam to rule over her – to “push her back down” – this is a result of the fall – her rebellion caused all the abuse of women that we see today…

Again, as she – Eve – takes her place under Godly Authority in submission – as Peter tells us in scripture – she will be released from this curse and know – in time after she has suffered – the Protection and release of God under Authority and in Submission…

The Lord said to me this morning, “Does Jesus teach the Father?”…

As I was struggling with this concept…

No, He doesn’t…

So a wife shouldn’t teach her husband…

Her life should speak…

Her life should be her example…

This is what Peter says, “without a word”…

This is “heavy stuff”…

But the Lord told me this morning to “teach it” – so I am…

Love you,

Andrew

About andrew james horton

Hi, my name is Andrew James Horton... I am a Kiwi (New Zealander), born in Christchurch (05 September 1971), now in my mid-forties (I feel so old saying that)... I am blessed to be married with five children and six grandchildren... :-) I am at present a Principal Structural Engineer, Director working in Christchurch, New Zealand... I am passionate about prophetic intercession and about revival both in New Zealand and throughout the world... I am passionate to pray that the Church, the Body of Christ, the Bride of Christ, will be all that He - the Lord Jesus Christ - desires her to be in our generation... I felt that the Lord gave me the name of this blog site, "a house of prayer for the nations - prophetic intercession for worldwide revival" and wanted me to "put it out there" and start recording the prayers which are on my heart to pray in the hope that others would also be encouraged to share the prayers which are on their hearts to pray and that in the unity of the Spirit we could participate together in this activity in different locations around the world as He leads us... If the Lord leads you, let's join in prayer for the Lord's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven in our generation... Love in the Lord, Andrew
