Gen 3:1-24.2 Cor 11:1-15.
Did God really say? It’s been Satan’s song from the beginning, his appearing like an angel of light yet dark as the night, the subtlety of the devil that seeks to undermine the majesty & holiness of God. Smooth as silk, slippery as an eel, bold as brass & hungry for some prey.
Yes, God really did say says Scripture & the natural world affirms the world in its war torn state of darkness & light in the spiritual realms, a mirror image that circumnavigates the earth.
In our beings we either belong to one or the other regarding our citizenship here on earth as it is in heaven & hell.The Bible helps us understand depth beyond general appearance & assumption.
