And He Said Unto The Woman…

Our ministries should be our own. We should, individually, carry the message to others all the time. One of our responsibilities to Jesus Christ is to tell others about what He has done for them and what He is doing for us all. We can do that by simply meeting people where they are in their day. Why not invite ourselves to sit with another person, a complete stranger, and share some Good News with them? Sure we are going to make mistakes, but the more we do it, the better our skills will become. Within a short period of time our skills will be as sharp as any fancy knife we see advertised on TV.

Imagine the impact we could have on our communities if we sat down with someone that needed to hear from God? Imagine the impact on our lives. Random acts of kindness to offset the random acts of violence we see everyday on the news. We could counter those acts with Truth, with Light and with the Way.

The serpent made his way toward Eve at a moment when she was completely out of balance with her relationship with God. If she weren’t the serpent wouldn’t have stood a chance of convincing her to give up her Christ Identity, not even for a second. But, alas, the serpent, being cunning, baffling and powerful, caught Eve in a moment of weakness. Just like he does to us when we aren’t engaging in the Word, spreading the Word and living in the Word.

Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? ~ Genesis 3:1 KJB

The serpent didn’t have to use all his power, he simply whispered in her ear a little lie, something like we hear all day long, and she bought it. We hear things like “loser” or “wife beater” and the next thing you know these lies are manifesting as truth in our life the same way they manifested in Eve’s life. Of course, there are a couple of other steps we must take in order for the whole thing to play out, but we started with the purchase of the lie from the deceiver, the accuser, the father of lies.

And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. ~ Genesis 3:2-3 KJB

We engage in dialogue with the devil in an attempt to convince ourselves the lies have no power over us. In doing so, we tell the devil exactly how to manipulate us, just as Eve did when she engaged in a dialogue with devil. We do not engage the devil, we ask Jesus Christ to rebuke him from our thoughts, from our soul and from the space surrounding us. We do not engage him. We do not entertain his ideas. When we do, we lose. Every. Single. Time. Jesus Christ has already won the battle but yet we insist on fighting individual battles when we should rebuke and move on to working with others and spreading our random acts of kindness.

Either the Scripture is the divine Word of God teaching us how to live and how to be a reflection of God, or it’s nothing more than a historical account of events.
