Man of Desire, who told you that you were naked ?
Man of Desire, who told you that you were naked?
Gen. Ch 3 v.
Then the Lord God called to Adam and said to him, "Where are you?"
So he said, "I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself."
And He said, "Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat?"
Then the man said, "The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate."
And the Lord God said to the woman, "What is this you have done?"
The woman said, "The serpent deceived me, and I ate."
Man of Desire, what is the answer to the Lord Gods' question that Adam did not answer himself? Who told you that you were naked? And therefore, causes you to hide from the Lord God. Who deceived you in the wonders of being naked? Do you also hide from your mate? Of course! And now you hide behind broken leaves, things that no longer have life for they were ripped from the very roots that sustained them.
Knowledge has corrupted your way to Wisdom, the Tree of Life. It has become but a fig leaf, this knowledge, that you wrap oneself in. Your shame is in your foolishness to rip off every leaf you can reach to tuck into your vines of self-imprisonment. Your put a tumble-weed, death with no roots.
And as you twitch on the ground unable to stand up or walk, you mock the naked Man that comes unto you...yea, even as he tries to help disentangle you! Your Knowledge is misery...your imprisonment within it even causes you to defecate upon yourself. Oh, the stink the naked Man must encounter to even approach you.
Does a father beat, spit upon, scorn, and shame his first son when he asks the humble questions that all child do? Does the father resent the child for the questions that presents the fathers own ignorance? For that surely is how you behave! You smack the naked child that approaches you to ask, who is God?
