WHO TOLD YOU?November 21, 2008 by eaglerj
"If the serpent introduced the whole concept of measures (those things that block the full light of the revelation of who God is) then it becomes of vital interest to us as human beings how both Adam & Eve responded to this new element in their world.
The next downward step, after avoiding the answer to the question ( Who told you?) is to begin applying your own measures to God or to other people, which Adam does when he tells God “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate.” Why is this a measure? It infers that what God created was not very good and in giving the women to him as a helpmate God had set Adam up for a fall. It’s intent is to undermine that truth that God is light and in Him is no darkness. Also, note within this statement Adam is applying a measure which Eve and every women after her has had to struggle with ie. you are inferior to man and you cannot be trusted.
Here is satan’s trojan horse. He has managed to get both Adam & Eve to buy into the practice of applying measures to God, to themselves and to each other.
It may sound simplistic but the vicious cycle of applying measures could have been nipped in the bud if Adam had answered the question Who told you you were naked? rather than resorting to applying measures.
The time has come to answer both of God’s questions: Where are you? and Who told you….?"
