Lest Satan should get an advantage of us:
for we are not ignorant of his devices (2 Cor 2:11)
Bullied and Shamed
The two main “devices” that control us since the Garden!
In the Garden of Eden account in the Holy Scriptures, we can see that Satan first “bullied” Adam and Eve into distrusting the Being who was initially with them in the Garden, and had given them everything they needed to be happy. Satan, in essence, bullied them into believing that the Creator was the “bully” by not allowing them to eat of every tree in the garden… that the Creator was holding them back from becoming “God” themselves.
Then Satan shamed them for their “nakedness” – both their intellectual and physical “vulnerability” – a state of being exposed to being taken advantage of by the Creator by being “naive” and “blindly trusting” that the Creator was telling them the truth and truly loved them and wanted them to become just like Him – fully autonomous and eternal.
For some reason, it never occurred to Adam and Eve that Satan, instead, could be the real “bully”, and that their intrinsic intellectual and physical “shame” was a necessary part of the process that the Creator was employing in order to create a relationship of trust that would be needed in order for all beings to be happy for an eternity with the Creator.
Well, it is time to correct these initial mistakes and presumptions that God is the bully, and that nakedness (trustingness) is an evil state of being.
We should be able see that these same two devices are at work today on the world scene.
Is there not a worldwide campaign underway right now claiming that some people are being “bullied” by others, and that some people should be “ashamed” of their belief systems?
Are not some people being bullied today under threat of death if they do not convert to a certain religion or ideology?
Are not some people being shamed today because they hold certain religious and political beliefs, and are thereby being “intolerant”?
It is time to realize what is the true driving invisible force behind this campaign, and then refuse to be used as pawns in this campaign that is being orchestrated by an alien being that wants mankind to self-destruct.
It is time to realize that the Creator is NOT the bully and has sufficiently proven that He truly loves us when He devised the Passover Event Remedy (Holyday 1) and risked losing His Son and eternal partner forever in order to pay for our mistake in the Garden and thereafter, and has completey reinstated our potential to become like Him – fully autonomous and eternal.
It is time to realize that being “intolerant” toward certain beliefs that lead to death and destruction is NOT something to be ashamed of. Toleration of such beliefs and teachings is exactly what we have been warned about in the Scriptures:
20 ‘But I have this against you, that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and leads My bond-servants astray so that they commit acts of immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols.
Mt 16:6, 11-12
11 “How is it that you do not understand that I did not speak to you concerning bread? But beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.” 12 Then they understood that He did not say to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees.
So, let us realize from now on that these two devices have always undermined our true potential from our very beginning on this planet.
Let us return to our original trusting state of mind, and not be BULLIED or ASHAMED!
25 And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.
